NEGRO KILLED AT NORFOLK
hot by White Man Who Escapes and
Omaha, 'Boy Held aa
NORFOLK, Neb.. Aug-. 24.-(Speclal Tel
egram.) A skin K for a drink hf whisky
an unidentified negro was murdered last
night by an unidentified and uncaptured
t'p to a late hour today no trace of the
murderer had been found.- Police officers
now believe that they had the murderer In
their clutches daring the early hours of
today In a freight car, but he was not
arrested. Tlere were two of them, soaking
wet from the rain, who had" crawleO. Into
the car for a bed. After officers had found
them and left them the description given
by the Omaha lads, eye witnesses, seemed
to fit the fellows.
The body of the murdered negro will prob
ably be sent to the State medical college
at Lincoln, as he has no friends here.
Vernon Turner. 241 S Emmet street, and
Roy Beer, 2306 Vinton street, Omaha, each
Bged 16, were with the murderer when he
ehot. They are being held as witnesses.
It was thought that the murderer had been
caught at Fremont, but this proved false.
Mrs. Turner says her son left home last
Monday afternoon at i o'clock, but she did
not know of his intentions of going away.
When he did not return at night she did
r.ot give the matter very serious thought,
she stated, as the boy has gone away on
numerous occasions to "see the world,"
sjofngoh one-" occasion as' far" as California.
The Turner boy made the acquaintance
of the Beer boy when the two families
were neighbors. Mrs. Turner has no
knowledge, slip says, of the man reported
fn hBV. Kttttn With t ha Hwa a, Vnrfnllr hn.
thinks the man to have been some one the
boys met on the way from Omaha.
Mrs. Turner left for Norfolk Thursday
An Inquiry at the Beer home Thursday
afternoon failed to develop any further
news regarding the matter. His father
stated that the boy had not been home
for several months and the first Intelli
gence he had of his whereabouts was
the report given him by The Bee of the
Norfolk shooting affair. Mr. Beer knew
nothing of the matter at all other than
the report that his boy had been arrested
In connection with the case.

Folly Three Thousand People Attend
BENNINGTON, Neb., Aug. 24. (Special
Telegram.) The old soldiers and their
friends, assembling and marching under the
banner of the Grand Army of the Republic
at Bennington, amid martial music, singing

Falls City Wants Better Water Works
FALLS CITY, Neb., Aug. 24.-(Speclal.)
The people of Falls City are having lots of
trouble over the city water" works system.
The system now In use has been established
between seventeen and eighteen years and
la about worn out. The wells of the pump
ing station cannot supply water enough
for the town on account of quick sand and
a short time ago a number of mass meet
ings were held at the request of the mayor
and city council to decide what should be
dor e. It was the request of these meetings
that the council call a special election to
vote $35,000 worth of bonds to Improve the
water works and electric light plants. The
election was called and owing to a personal
feeling against Mayor Lryda and some of
the councllmen the bonds were defeated.
As soon as the result of the election waa
known there was a realization of a change
In Insurance rates brought to the people
and as a result another mass meeting was
called for last Monday night. A large
crowd was present, but the sentiments of
those present was about evenly divided be
tween asking the city administration to call
another election or letting things go as
they are. City Engineer Lapp addressed
the meeting and told them the condition
of things and the probable results If some
change was not made and It was decided
to ask for another election on the bond
question. A bond Is being prepared now
to present to the council guaranteeing the
costs of the election If the proposition Is

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Aug. 24. (Special.) Senator
Fries of Valley county was In Lincoln last
night, having Just recently returned from a
visit to California points. Senator Fries Is
just now feeling the public pulse, prepara
tory to announcing his candidacy for the
republican nomination for governor. When
asked concerning the prospective proceed
ings to be Instituted against the alleged
Lumber trust by the attorney general at
the conclusion of the grain suit. Senator
The state association of lumber dealers
will welcome a suit to be started by the
attorney general or any one else. Tou sea
we have been through the mill once and a
Judgment was secured against us. That
taught us a lesson and we at once burned
up our old constitution and by-laws and
reorganised In conformity with the law.
Every move we have made has been made
after a consultation with attorneys who
know their business, so a suit against the
association will not Injure us. The asso
ciation Is not doing business contrary to
Before going to California Senator Fries
made a trip back to his old home In Vir
ginia tvhere he attended a reunion of the
Fries family, at which were present 600 per
sons of whom 250 were named Fries and
the other 250 or thereabouts were descend
ants of the family. "The occasion was cer
tainly a Fries out," said the senator In tell
Locates Trouble la Omaha.
Should Attorney General Brown start pro
ceedings to see whether the lumber dealers
of Nebraska are organized to shut out the
little dealers and control trade and prices
he will. In all probability, secure some evl
dence from among the members of. the
Lumber Dealers' association, who. will tell
some stories against the big lumber dealers
In Omaha which will materially help him.
A lumber dealer who does not aspire to
control more trade than right around In his
territory Is authority for the statement that
It Is not the state association that conrols
prices, but that It Is a few Omaha dealers.
In Omaha, besides the big dealers, there
are several firms that bid on bills of lumber
In nearly every town In the state and thus
enter Into competition with the little retail
dealers. It Is the belief of this man that
these scalpers are maintained by the big
dealers, who keep them up merely to harass
the retailers out In the state. On one or
two occasolns where complaints have been
made to the big dealers the bidding on bills
of lumber In a country town has been
stopped, thus showing that the big dealers
have Influence with the scalpers and that
when the country dealer will buy his lum
ber through the Omaha firms and be good
he will not be molested.
Brown to Personally Investigate.
Attorney General Brown, who will start
mandamus proceedings against County
Clerk Drexel shortly to compel him to as
sees the reserve fund of the Woodmen of
the World, has his petition all ready to file,
but will hold It until some time next week
until he can take a trip to Om.aha and ex
amine the recdrds In the case. A certlfl
cata was received from the county assessor
that he bad assessed the reserve- fund and
spread it over the records, but a letter ac
companying the certificate said he had not
done that. To get himself on the right
track the attorney general will make a per
sonal Investigation of the records of the
Douglas county officers.
Little Talk of Politics.
John Ehrhardt. judge advocate general of
the National Guard, was In Lincoln on
business today and said no one around his
part of the country was talking politics.
"We of the North Platte country at this
time concede the right of the South Platte
people to nominate the supreme Judge, but,
of course, I can't say what we of the North
Platte might think when the convention
meets. However, I have heard very little
talk about the candidates."
Regents Worried Over Appropriation.
The Board of Regents of the State uni
versity at Its meeting held yesterday after
noon Instructed C. 8. Allen to look out
for the appropriation made by the legisla
ture two years ago for the construction of
the administration building and which It
was generally supposed would lapse back
to the treasury August 31. Inasmuch as the
building Is just fairly started nearly all of
the appropriation would lapse under that
Interpretation of the constitution that all
appropriations lapse three months after the
adjournment of the next legislature.
Member Allen, however. Is not much wor
ried about the lapsing of the appropriation,
as he puts a different construction on the
and their bondsmen for 15.200, alleging that

liquor sold him by the defendants

John went to Preston last , Saturday and
traded horses with' a man named Zoeller.

bad whisky and started home on his new
horse. He got sleepy and fell oft the horse
and took a nap. When he woke up his
horse had wandered away and John did not
have a very good recollection of what had
happened so he walked back to Preston
and found the horse he had traded In Zoel
ler's yard, got the horse and rode him
home. In the morning Mr. Zoeller thought
a horse thief had visited him and he tele
phoned for the sheriff. The officer found
Long John and the horse and brought them
both to Falls City. When the matter was
explained there was no prosecution as Long
John Is old and not very bright.
