The case of the state against James O.
Nichols. Thirteenth and 7- came to Its
preliminary hearing etcrday afternoon In
Judge King court. He was found guilty
of embeszlement and was bound over to
the district court on $1,000 bonds. He was
taken to the county jail last night. From
the evidence produced at the preliminary
and the evidence In his trial at Omaha

slble to name. He was arrested In omana WPre
on the complaint of Ills wife on Saturday,
December 9. The case against him wa
that he had abandoned her and bis chil
dren, who were to all appearances deserv
ing. Time and again he bad visited the
dives of Omaha and spent there the money
which should have gone to their support,
until at last she traced his steps, and with
the evidence in hand caused his arrest.
He was found rullty by Judge Berka and
fined $J0 and costs. He was remanded to
JnJl. During the course of this Imprison
ment It was discovered that he hud not
only spent hla own money In riotous com
pany, but he had drawn on the funds of
the I'nlon Block Yards Relief association,
which had been Intrusted to him ns secre
tary and treasurer of the organization, to
the amount of h.60. It was for this em
bezzlement that he was tried yesterday in
police court. Nichols hud been employed as
a time kecicr in the stock yards Rnd as
such received good pay. It was proved
that from the time he took the oHloe he
kept no account of the meetings; nor kept
the books of the treasurer. The only en
try he had made was that of the money
turned over to him nt the beginning of his
term, sii0 and more. This he deposited in
a local bank. He soon began to draw on
this fund for his own benelit and the bene
fit of his friends. The money from two
Inter assessments he put Into his own
po ket direct, without tho formality of de
biting It at all. Checks were produced
to account for that he had misspent.
The principal witnesses against him were
I,. M. Cockerell, president, and C. O.
Nowncs, present secretai-y of tho relief as
sociation. Nichols put up no defense. Judge
King hound the prisoner over to tho dis
trict court. It in not likely that he will
be able to secure bonds. President Cock

Frontage on Railroad Avenue.
Among other property owners along
Railroad avenue, George & Co. of Omaha,
who own property in block 4 of Cobb's
Second addition to the City of South
Omaha, have, sent a letter of inquiry as
to what portion of the said avenue was
or. Is abandoned to the railroad company.
They wish to know If their property will
have any street frontage at all. The city
engineer makes the following public state
ment of the matter. All of Railroad ave
nue from K street to a point 120 feet south
of I has been vacated by the city. Again
front a point 130 feet south of O street all
of RallroHd avenue has been given up to
the west line of Twenty-fourth street. In
the upace between I and O streets on Rail
road avenue, the "west half of the street,
a strip thirty-three feet wide, has been
reliused to tho property owners and the
railroad. The statutes of Nebraska pro
vide, where a street is vacated In this
manner, that the land shall be equally di
vided between the property owners. In
this case Oeorge Co. are entitled to
an additional strip of land which they
can still use asa street as far as their
property extends, but men who own lots
on each side of them can fence in their
holdings as they see fit, so that Oeorge
ft Co. can't get out In the old way on
Park Bond Paaala.
A pertinent question was asked at the
city hall yesterday morning: "What has
become of the 140.000 issue of park bonds
which was ordered at the time that the
city hall honda weru voted and by the
pamo election?" The question drew a
blank. The city clerk said he had heard
nothing of them. All be knew was that
they hiul been voted and were to bear 4
Xer cent Interest. It was further under
stood that the managers of Syndicate park
stood ready to exchange their property
on the north side for the bonds as tton
as they had a chance. The question waa
put to W. P. Adklns, president of the city
council. He said: "We have been In no
hurry about the park bonds because, for
one reason, of the Injunctions and delays
we met In trying to float the bonds for
the city hall. We have simply done
nothing In the matter, but will take It up
In good time, - possibly before spring. So
far a I know, Christie Bros, are still
willing to take the bonds as they had
offered, but they have had no chance. We
want to go a little slow In this bond bust

The walls of the new Young Men's
Christian association gymnasium have
been brought nearly to completion this

that they will be able to use the new ac

The dimensions of the building are about
35x00 feet, and quite an extensive supply
of apparatus will be put In to assist In
physical development. It Is thought that
the association will be In Its new quar

apply to the new gymnasium, which will
not be ready by that time.

voted for the resolution did so with, the
reservation that If Mr. Agnew would stand
as a cundidate their support would be

George F. Stoney, aged about 2:1. and
rooming on South Sixteenth street, lies at
tho Clarkson Memorial hospital with two
knife wounds received at the hands of an
alleged pickpocket at the corner of Six
teenth and California streets at I o'clock
Sunday morning. According to the story
of Stoney's two brothers, who were with
him at the time of the affair, the wounded
man was In company with a stranger, and
the two entered a saloon together. When
they came out on the street and had pro
ceeded a short distance Stoney was seen
to strike his companion a blow on the
bead with his ns,, whereupon the latter
suddenly drew a knife with which he
struck Stoney, cutting a gash in the right
side of the throat, barely missing the Jug
ular vein. Stoney then struck a second
time, and then received a thrust In the
left breast, half an Inch above the heart.
The brothers then camo up and attacked
the stranger, knocking him down, and
were giving him a severe drubbing when
he got up and disappeared Inside a sa
loon. The iatrol wagon was then called
and Stoney was taken to the hopsltal.

It was at first feared that the breast
wound penetrated the lung, but examina
tion showed that neither cut will prove
dangerous and that Stoney will be able to
he around Hgaln In a week. It was stated
by the brothers that the stranger tried to
pick Stoney's pocket, and that it was when
Btoney caught liiin In the act that the fight
began. They said that so far as they
know Stoney had never met the man !efore,
but that ho was a saloon hanftrron whom
they would have no trouble In Identifying.
