The flrat conviction under the govern
ment'e new fence law has been secured.
Judge Munger Thursday morning over
ruled the motion for a new trial In the
ruse of the Krause brothers, convicted at
the Mar term of the United States district
court of Illegally fencing; publlo land and
Intimidating- settlers. Sentence was then
passed on the accused. In which John
Krause was required to pay a fine of $800,
pay one-half the costs of the suit and be
Imprisoned In the custody of the United
States marshal for twenty-four hours.
Herman Krause was fined $500 and one
half the costs of suit and sentenced to
rlmllar Imprisonment. Both Were to be
confined In the DougHts ,;county Jail until
the costs and fine were paid. Ten days
were given the accused 1n which to raise
the money for their flnee and sentence was
uspended In the Interim. However, the
accused made arrangements to pay the
fine and costs at once. The costs will
amount In the aggregate to $1,171.
Revlewst the Case.
John and Herman Kraune, brothers and
the leading cattlemen of Sheridan county,
were Indicted at the November (1903) term
of the federal grand Jury of Illegally fenc
ing approximately 10,004 acres of publlo
lands In Sheridan county, adjoining their
personal property of a similar area In Box
liutte county. Additional indictments were
found against them at the May (1905) term,
of the federal grand Jury and their trial
on the combined Indictments began during
the Ma;- (1M6) term of the United States
district court. The trial occupied several
weeks, the Krauses' be.lng defended by I
C. Noleman and C. C. Barker of Alliance
nd the prosecution was -conducted by
United States District Attorney Baxter,
instated by Assistant Attorney Lane and
Special Attorney Bush. v
The trial attracted general Interest all
iver. the country, being the first attempt
it the government to Institute criminal
proceeding for the violation of the antl-
fonclng laws. It was full of sensational
features and was bitterly contested.
Osliorns Chief Witnesses.
The government's ohlcf witnesses were
Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Osborn, who were
homesteaders within the alleged Illegal
fence enclosures of the Krause brothers.
Mrs. Osborn developed into a witness of
remarkable astuteness and demonstrated
an acquaintance with the fence lines of the
accused that was remarkable. She had
made a complete circuit of the alleged 11-
. legal fence? lines and offhand gave the loca-
the fences according to quarter.
township and range lines that as-
npt only the court, but the at-
for the defense.
Upward pf fifty witnesses were examined
In the trial on both sides and during
the entire proceedings the court room was
crowded, many of the spectators being cat
tle men from different parts of this state
and South Dakota and Wyoming. Wit
nesses also were present from Washington,
as It was the Intention' of the govern
ment to make this a test case.
The evidence of the Osborns was corrobo
rated by numerous other witnesses as to
the fact of Intimidation and Illegal fences,
and the result was the conviction of John
Krause of Intimidation . and Illegally cos,
strutin,gln T.nflntalnlng llfegal fences,
while Herman Krause was found not guilty
of Intimidation, but guilty of constructing
and maintaining illegal fences.
Motion for Hew Trial.
The attorneys for the defense at once
gave notice that they would file a motion
for a new trial and' this motion was filed
a few weeks later. The argument on the
motion . for a nw trial was made early
In September. The contention of the de
fendants was that during the trial an ef
fort had been made by the government to
show that John K cause had once shot and
killed one Sylvester over a fence line trou
ble some years previously, but was ac
quitted of crime, on the ground that the
killing was done In self-defense. A further
uttempt. was. made to question the reliab
ility of the Osborns as witnesses and an im-
aehment of thelf evidence was attempted
the argument; This consltuted the gen-
M ground for asking, a new trial.
The government contested the motion
a new trial on the ground that the time
anil place to essay an Impeachment of the
testimony of the Osborns was during the
trial and not after a conviction had been
spcured; also that even with the elimination
of the testimony of the Osborns. there was
sufficient corroborative evidence to warrant
the verdict of the jury.
Jada Mauwer'a Address.
In summing up the argument of counsel
for a new trial. Judge Munger said. In ef
fect, Thursday morning:
The admission or the testimony In the
case of the Sylvester homicide was un
warranted. It having no bearing on the
case and the Jury was Instructed to not
take It Into considers tlon, and that part of
the testimony was stricken from the record.
There was no effort during the trial to Im
peach the testimony of the Osborns, nor
was their credibility questioned at that
time. Hnr this reason the bill of esceptlons
and motion for a new trial Is overruled.
Judge Munger then asked:
"John and Herman Krause have yoi
anything to aay why sentence should not
be passed upon you?"
Attorney C. C. Barker, In behalf of the
accused, said!'
Your honori the defendants have been
found guilty of bat a statutory offense
which does not Involve any moral turpi-

E. RIGGS Pointing Out the Difference,
tude, but Is of the same general order as
a violation of the hunting laws of the
state. As to whether they were rightly
or wrongfully found guilty. It Is not for
me here to state. We were completely
surprised at the testimony offered by the
Osborns, and It was not until they were
on the witness stand were we able to lo
cate them. The defendants are poor men.
They aro not cattle barons. They came
Into that country poor and arc yet poor
men and are entitled to the clemency of
the court. They are hard working men.
They went into that Inhospitable section
and stayed there, while others passed on.
They work with their own hands and by
that means support themselves. If they
are confined In prison it will take them
away from their work and their families.
I ask that the court will look Into the
equity of this case and ask for the morcy
of the court and expect Justice.
Evidence of Their Poverty.
Mr. Barker, In order to show the finan
cial circumstances of his clients, asked to
produce evidence of their poverty through
L. E. Roberts of South Omaha, who was
their financial backer. He showed that
Mr. Roberts held their notes amounting in
the aggregate to $40,000, of which $10,000
was secured by mortgage on their lands
and $30,000 on their cattle and implored the
court to take these fscts Into considera
tion. District Attorney Baxter, on behalf of the
government, said:
The government regards this case as
highly Important. It does not wish to do
Injustice to any one. but It desires that
the law e rigidly enforced. Since the ver
dict has been rendered against these men
no effort has been made by the defendants
to take down their fences. The enclosures
that existed at Uie time of the trial still
exist. They have shown no contrition. In
the case of Herman Krause there was noth
Ing to show that he was guilty of Intimida
tion. No case has been presented to this
court or will be presented hereafter that
will show a greater case of Intimidation
than that exercised by John Krause. His
crime was heinous, and the government
believes that an example shourd be made.
A reDresentatlve of the court has been
recently In that country and has found that
tne enclosures compiainea or sun exist.
John Krause was an intlmidator of the
worst sort and the limit of the law Is none
too little punishment for him. An ex
ample should be made whereby the public
may be notified that this thing cannot
continue with lmpunltv and that athe in
timidation of settlers on the public domain
must cease and -i." order from this court
shall go out to this effect.
Mr. Barker replied to Judge Baxter with
the statement: "The defendants had taken
down their own fences, but that the only
fences that remained were connecting
fences. This prosecution looks to me more
as a persecution against these men."
Co art's Last Words.
Judge Munger replied:
The court does not require that the de
fendants shall take down the unlawful
fences of any one else. The fact of the
murder of Sylvester cannot he taken Into
consideration at all. The offense of these
men Is a statutory offense perse and not
an Immoral one. The purpose of the law
Is to preserve the public domain for the
use of actual settlers. No one has the
right to arrogate to himself the right of
domain and control any portion of the
public lands. The law does not permit it.
The humblest cltlsen has the same right
as the corposatlon. The government says
rnu must not fence In the publlo domain,
t Is free to all. The grass is free for pub
llo use, not for the use of one or two per
sons, but for every one and every acre
of this land Is free. But for many years
large and wealthy corporations have been
tacitly permitted to do this thing In viola
tion of the law, but that does not mitigate
against the violation of the law or con
done It. It Is the duty of the department
of Justice to see that the law la enforced,
not to exercise vengeance, but to punish
for violation of the law. By doing this,
further prosecution may be avoided, and in
passing sentence It will show to offenders
and all persons violating the law that It
will not De prontable to continue paying
fines for the privilege of keeping their il
legal fences up. The court has no desire
to inflict the sentence of Imprisonment In
this case beyond what the statue Imposes.
What Krauses gay.
Herman Krause said at the federal build
ing Just after sentence was pronounced:
"We will of course pay the fine. That is the
only thing we have to do."
John Krause is of a little more belligerent
turn and remarked later In the day:
"I think after all we will appeal the case
to a higher court. It seems hard that we
shonld have been convicted on the testl
monv of those Osborns. We should be
given a chance to show what they are,
and ought to have a new trial to do so,
and then I am sure we will be acquitted
WHAT KEARNEYPE0PLE THINK
Question of Independent Telephone
In Omaha Concerns Every
Business Man In the State.
Kearney Hub, September 26.
Kearney business men are evincing a
lively Interest In the efforts now being made
by the Independent telephone interests to
have the question of granting a franchise
to an independent company in Omaha sub
mltted to the voters of that city at a special
election, the expense whereof Is to be paid
by the promoters of the company. The
Omaha papers are at present publishing
numerous articles for and against the prop
osition, being principally in the form dt In
tervlews with men identified with the new
company or the Bell company, and the con
test Is waxing exceedingly warm. The In
dependent people do not ask the council to
grant them a franchise, their only request
being that the matter be submitted to a
vote of the people.
In speaking of the matter to a Hub rep
resentatlve a prominent business man of
this city said: "The question of whether
there shall be an Independent telephone
exchange In the city of Omaha Is one which
concerns the business men of every town
In the state, where Independent companies
are in existence, almost as much as it
does the people of Omaha. The people Of
this state have Invested hundreds of thou
sands of dollars in the telephone business
and large numbers of business men no
longer have Bell telephones In their stores
or offices. This condition diverts many
telephone orders for goods from this sea
tlon, which would otherwise go to Omaha,
to Lincoln and Grand Island, and orders
by mall, which might go to Omaha by tele
phone if there were connections, are Just
as Habit to go to Chicago, St. Joe or
Kansas City.
"I believe that the manufacturers and
Jobbers of Omaha are committing a crime
against themselves, against their city and
against the spirit of progress, which has
built up the great state of Nebraska, by
not Insisting that (tielr city council submit
this matter to a vote of the people. If
they should arise en masse and Insist that
the council allow this barrier to the com
merclal growth of the city to be removed.
I do not believe that the members of the
council would dare to refuse the demand,
even If they did have an 'understanding'
with the Bell company.
"If Omaha Insists upon allowing the Bell
monopoly exclusive entree Into Its bus!
ness houses, denying equal privileges to
company owned and controlled by Ne
braska people, I believe that the retailers
of the state should place their orders with
houses located In cities which are appar
enuy not tied up with such monopoly.
have written to a number of manufacturers
and Jobbers In Omaha with whom I have
been doing business and told them how
stand on the matter and think other bust
ness men should do the same."

Announcements of (har Theaters.
To all appearances visitors who come to
the Ak-Sar-Ben festivities consider the
Orpheum theater a most desirable plans
to go for scores of strangers are In the
audience every night at the popular play
house. To an extent this may be accounted
for by the fact that cities of less population
than Omaha do not have a high class
vaudeville theater and many of these visit
ors only at long intervals get a chance to
enjoy this bright, snappy and novel enter
tainment. Bousa comes but once a year and this
time for only one concert, which will be
Sunday night, October 1st at the Audi
torium. Bands may come and bands may go but
Bousa remains at the head of the list and
Is growing more popular and masterful year
by year. He carries with him this year the
most perfect organisation that he has ever
directed, including many soloists of ex
ceptional merit. That his concert In tha
auditorium on Sunday night will be a feast
of melody goes without saying.
On Monday night the famous Banda
Rossa, directed by tha famous Eugenlo
Borrentlno, and accompanied by a quartet
of high class singers will begin an engage
ment of three nights and two matinees at
the Auditorium. This popular band will
not confine its efforts to the ordinary band
concert program, but on each evening tha
second part of the program will be de
voted to the presentation of Perosl's sub
lime, oratorio, '"The Resurrection of Christ,"
the words being sung by the quartet, while
the oratorio will be illustrated by means of
fine large paintings 10x40 feet, appearing
and fading away as the band in subdued
tones plays the beautiful and impressive
muslo of the oratorio.
Director Borrentlno has undoubtedly made
a great hit In this Innovation and he will
doubtless play to full houses at the Auditorium,
Mr. Tim Murphy begins his short en
gagement at the Boyd this evening, offer
ing his new comedy, "A Corner in Coffee."
He will play this piece on Friday evening
and a Baturday matinee. On Baturday
evening the bill will be a double, a one
act comedy "Uncle Ben; or My LsAy Help,"
preceding the well known classic, "David
aarrlck." Mr. Murphy has been making
a great success In these plays, and the In
dications are that he will repeat his tri
umphs In Omaha. Beginning on Sunday
evening, Robert Mantell, one of America's
greatest actors, comes for a week in classic
plays. His repertory Includes "Richard
HI," "Richelieu," "Othello" and. 'Hamlet"
The Burwood theater Is offering much to
attract tha visitors during the carnival
season, and the management wants to call
attention to the matinee on Baturday after
noon, when "A Royal Family" will be the
bill. This is a pretty play and la being
most charmingly presented.
