ago In Omaha for robbing a Perry. Ia..

'a valuable pin, walch and $20. As the

home drunk and beating his widowed
mother snd breaking up some of her furnl
ture:, '' V,
Hofl not yel hardened to a life of crime,
and In spite of his efforts to act boldly
after' his arrest, the. strain became too
great for hlni, and when he at Inst could
stand It no longer, his face hard and
drawn, he let himself out, and the truth
flowed freely. No sooner had he confessed
than a ook of Infinite relief overspread
his face. "I never saw such a change
of expression Jn any person's face before,"
remarked Captain Mostyn. "In place of
the hard features came a wave of bright
ness, and he even told me. on the way to
South Omaha In the cab, that I had no
Idea what a relief. It was to him the
moment he confessed. But 1 had some
Idea from the change on his face. He put
his arm over my, shoulder while talking
In the cab, and. when we returned to
Omaha in a street car he resumed that,
position, maintaining it all the way."
Warren was arrested nearly a year ago
for forgery. ....
Kelson has a long police record In
Omaha,., He has been arrested time and

child of. his parents, who are nearly heart
broken over the conduct of their boy.
He began his criminal career early In
life. Hhi father Is a well-to-do carpenter
and contractor, a reputable and highly
respected Citizen, and the only son has
never had cause to tieed for the lack of
necessities or even luxuries. But While
yet hoy In knee trousers, 11 years old,
"Ray" was discovered In a plan which he
had of entering a store and going behind
the counter, stealing money or whatever
of value he could find. His small site
enabled him to enter and escape unseen.
In thla way he tapped many tills. As ha
grew older his' operations continued and
Increased. He wns never In need of money
and could have had all he wanted from
his father. Ho did not drink and his only
large ' expense was livery horses, though
his father had horses at home, but he
seemed to take delight In- thieving. He
soon became a police character and many
times' th father Was able to keep him out
of Jail only by buying off the prosecutor.
Hut no number of escapes from prison

of. broken-hearted father and mother ap

Angus for the first time Baturday evening, i

to go Jnto the matter, they confidently
believe Nelson, O'Hearn and Angus were
Implicated -In various holdups perpetrated
hero, during the last few weeks, as many
of th ; descriptions received by victims
correspond with the prisoners. These three
told the, police officials the reason the street
tar robbery was not pulled off was because
the 'two amateurs of the quartet got "cold
feet" afid called It off. The younger two
stated Ne(son and O'Hearn Intimated some
"smokln;" (shooting) might have to be

Rerall Former trim'.
The crimes and arrests of O Hearn, Nel
son, Angus and Warren make up the most
Interesting case In local police annals since
the arrests of Smith. Doran, Trattner,
Case and Madison a year ago Inst summer.
The last mentioned had framed up a deal
to hold up the car barn at Twentieth and
Harney streets on the evening of their
arrests. In that case. too. the car barn
robbery-fell through because part of the j
gang experienced quite a drop of tempera
ture In their pednl extremities and failed I
to show up at the appointed place. They 1
did confess, however, to a long list of
highway robberies.
The revolver with whlh the murder was
committed was recovered by the police lata
yesterday afternoon. Its recovery was di
rectly due to the confession of Nelson, he
having told that It would be found In
O'Hearn's house. O'Hearn had given the
weapon to his wife, and she In turn handed
It to her father, who gave it up to the
police. All the chambers were empty. It
Is a 32-calber. the same as that of the
bullet removed from Laustcn's body. An
gus told Captain Mostyn that he had rone
with Nelson to Council Bluffs Saturday to
buy a revolver. They bought this one for
13 and gave It to O'Hearn, for he had no
gun.
1.1 fe Imprisonment for Robbery,
In discussing the recently resurrected law
In the state of Illinois, which provides
the penalty of life Imprisonment for high
way robbers, no matter what the booty
might be, Captnlh Mostyn said yesterday:
"I believe the law a good one and a Just
one. A man who undertakes the work
of holding uh another must consider before-
j hand what lie will do. He must go through
the act In his mind and know Just what to
do In an emergency. He must provide a
plan of action should his victim show
fight. If, then, he murders his man dur
ing the holdup It becomes a premeditated
crime a conspiracy on the part of those
engaged In the robbery to get a man's
money and kill him If he resists. Such a
law Is none too severe for this class of
criminals. Holdup men and safe blowers
are the most dangerous to human life of all
wrongdoers. Sneakthleves, oonfldence men
and men of that class are not often found
with revolvers or other weapons upon their
persons. Their work does not require that
they should kill In very many cases. The
kind of men that wo placed under arrest
today are the worst there are and It would
perhaps be a good thing If the Illinois
law wore In force all over the country."

Has ot Yet Centered on
Whom It Will Favor.
iFrtnu a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Jan. 21. (Special.) The last
week in Lincoln was a great one for the.
political medicine mixers of this section of
the state. Agriculturists from all parts
of the state were here, and theBe Included
many members of the last legislature as
well as politicians of some reputation. A
good many of the old members of the
legislature were here feeling of the politi
cians and discussing chances of re-election.
Some of the politicians were of the opinion
that before the middle of February politics
would be red hot and that within a short
time tho United States senator and the
candidate for governor and treasurer would
be decided upon, while others were not
so sure.
Nearly all of those here who were Inter
viewed were of the opinion that the rail
roads as well as many of the banks were
already hard at work to secure the re
election of Senator Millard, while many of
them believed that the railroads would
like to see former State Auditor Weston
nominated for governor.
As opposition candidates to these men
many names were mentioned, but it was
clear that the antl-rallroad element Is not
combined. on any one man. If the Impres
sion left by the agriculturists Is any cri
terion. That the sentiment absolutely op
posed to the railroads is deep sooted, how
ever, the visitors left not the leHst doubt.
Whatever the action of the next republican
state convention may be, at this time the
sentiment Is absolutely opposed to the rail
roads dominating political affairs as they
have In the past.
Favorite "on Dodae.
Representative Caldwell brought the In
formation, from Clay county that the rail
roads were trying to pet the people ef
his county to ease up on the pass proposi
tion and at the same time he said they
were flirting with a number of favorite
sons to get them to bring In delegations to
the convention, which 'ater could be ma
nipulated by experienced politicians. He and
others brought the information that Dins
more and a number of other candidates
would be sprung In order to hold home del
egations In line, while Representative Ernst
Is authority for the statement that no home
candidate will be given a delegation In his
part of tho state unless the candidate has
a good cnance or nomination ana io- pcu-
pie B'e sure the candidate is sincere and
not merely running to drag chestnuts out
of the tire for the railroads.
It also developed that there will be a
harvest of candidates for railroad commis- I
sioners to be voted on this fall when the :
constitutional amendment creating the j
commission Is submitted to the people. Rep
resentative Caldwell will be a candidate j
for a place on this commission In all prob-
ability, while the visitors suggested a j
number of others who would either be can-
didates or whom they would like to see j
run. Among the latter class the name of i
Oeorge Sheldon was mentioned, though he
Is still being talked of for governor. Trcas- :
urer Mortensen, Charles Dempster, John
Wall, Senator Fries, Judge Paul Jessen, I
Charles Weston and E. a. McOilton each I
had his admirers among the visitors, but
a majority of those Interviewed had' net
made up their mlrjs who they would sup
port when it comes to the final showdown.
Benton Is Talked Of.
In Lancaster county It is expected the
convention will be called pretty early. Just
at this time tho bosses are flirting with
legislative candidates, and, In fact, they j
have been doing that ever since the last
session adjourned. Tom Benton has been
asked to throw off his business clothes
and get Into the running for membership
in the legislature, but up to date Mr. Ben
ton has stood pat for the slmplo life. He
recently returned from California where ho
he went, a sick man, H few months ago and,
though much Improved In health, he ex
pressed himself as preferlng the life of the
business man rather than that of a mem
ber of the legislature. Clmncey Warner,
who has served three terms In the lower
house, in all probability will try a throw
at the senate this time. It is generally un
derstood that Senator Bcglitol ' has had
enough and will not be a candidate again.
Bible In Poblle Schools.
In un address at Trinity church tonight
Deputy State Superintendent Bishop advo
cated the reading of the Bible in the public
schools and he made the statement that no
education Is complete without a study of
the Bible.

"We view with alarm any attempt to tnke
from our teachers the privilege of resdlng

from the Bible as are fitted to leave right

Mr. Bishop reviewed the history of the
suit brought by Daniel Freeman to keep the
Bible out of the school In a certain district
In Oage county and told of suits elsewhere
that had been broiurht to stop the reading
of the Bible In schools, but he said that
wherever it wns shown that the Bible was

Mr. Guniniere Nays Americans (irt Lit

of (lams)- Business
Methods.
ALtJECIRAS. Jim. 2t.-The American del
es;atrs to the Moroccan conference as the
results of talks with others of the en
voys have become Impressed with the un
developed wenllli of Morocco and the op
portunities It affords for American enter
prises. Wonderful stories are told of coal
deposits within un hnur'B ride of Tan
gier, of untouched forests of cork trees
neiir at hand, und of g-old Acids In the At
las mountains. The Moors continue to
woru on a small scale the copper veins
opened by the Romans, but mining engi
neers, who have scarcely dared to turn a
stone for fear of the natives, aver that
not only copper, but tin and Iron mines
exist which are equal to the best mines
of Spain.
"Why should not the t'nltt-d States share
In the development of these resources
which are greater than those of Manchuria
or the Philippines." remarked one of the
plenipotentiaries.
American Methods C In mar.
Samuel Ounmiere, the American minister
to Morrocco and one of the delegates to
the convention, however, raised some prac
tical difficulties in the way of Americans
profiting In this field, as Europeans con
trol tfe shipping linns and send their goods
in bulk, while Americans send merely F.ng
llsh literature and samples, gome tons of
this literature, Mr. Gummere said, reached
the American legation every year for dis
tribution Hmong the Arabs.
Mr. Gununere. however,, confirmed many
of the reports of the undeveloped riches of
the country. lie said the soil need only be
scratched to produce each yeur two
abundant crops of corn, barley niltl vege
tables. American agricultural machinery,
according to Mr. Gummere, Is greatly
needed in Morocco, aa the primitive wooden
plow is still used there. Moreover, Morocco
meds railroads, telegraphs, electricity and
a hundred of other conveniences which It
could havo if the country were opened,
but against these things the Moors have
resolutely set their faces.
Direct Steamer Lines Seeded.
Mr. Gummere said that although consid
erable flour, petroleum and lard, the lutter
for the use of the Spanish population, Is
Imported, yet these things are brought
through Marseilles, .Hamburg and other
Kuropean ports upon Kuropean ships and
are distributed by European traders. Nine
tenths of the flour imported Is American.
The Standard Oil company has an exclusive
market In Morocco, having displaced Rus
sian oil concerns.
Much of the Morroccan market, Mr. Gum
mere thinks, could be occupied by Ameri
can merchants if -a direct steamship line
mere established.
Speaking of the huge profits made In
Morrocco, Mr. Gummere remarked that In
vestors there think they are losing money
If they do not make from SO to 40 per cent
pruut, wiine ou in krs per cent ia uui rare
Leading I to It.
"Mr. Myitis," suid the rising young con
gressman, "can you renew my nnnual puss
on your rnllwuy?"
"1 um sorry I cannot do tliut, Mr. Kly
mer," suid the president of the company.
"The Ironclad rules we have adopted this
yeur positively forbid it. Ask vnie for any
thing else, however, and I shall be happy
to grant It."
The young man sua' his chance.
'Mr. My It's." lie excluimed. in an eager,
trembling voice, "may I murry your
