of Mickey ford In the holdup of the saloon
of Leo Roenier at Twenty-fourth and J
streets. South Omaha, was positively Identi
fied by a number of men In the saloon at
the time In the trial before Judge Troup
Wednesday. Itoemer waa the first wit
ness, aid he testified that Maher and Ford
entered the saloon with drawn guns, with
which thry covered the crowd. Ford, who
had a handkerchief over his face, first told
Itoemer to hand over his money, but he
refused. One of tho men in the saloon
threw 15 cents down on the bar In front
of Ford, but Roeiner picked it up and put
it In his pocket.
The bluff worked and Ford began to back
out of the saloon. Then, the witness s!d,
Maher came over to him and told him to
"I won't do It," Roenier answered. Then
Maher began to back out also. Outside the
saloon the men ahot four or five tlm-a.
There were five or six men in tho saloon
at the time and they were called to the
stand to Identify Maher. The holdups got
no money from the crowd. Ford was con
victed for his share in tho crime some time
ago and lanow awaiting sentence.
The defense Introduced witnesses yester
day afternoon In an effort to prove that
Maher Is a mental wreck and was drunk
on the day of the holdup and Incapable of
forming an Intent to rob. Dr. Ensor of
Bouth Omaha said he had observed Maher
while making professional visits to the
home of Mr. Scott, where Maher was stay
ing, and while he did not think he waa In

from drink and irresponsible for his acts.
Several other witnesses testified he talked
irrationally at times and did not know
what he was doing. Evidence was also In
troduced to show he was drunk on the day
of the holdup, but In rebuttal the stale
recalled several witnesses to show he was

Alleged Accomplice of Mickey Ford
Escapes l or lotion.
The Jury in the case of James Morrlsey,
alias Morrison was discharged shortly be
fore noon Wednesday, without reaching a
verdict. It Is understood tho balloting stood
seven to five for conviction from the time
the Jury went into the Jury room at noon
Tuesday, until it came out Wednesday.
Only once was there a deviation from this
vote, but the change was on account cf
an error on the part of one of the Jurors
and was immediately corrected.
In view of the fact no verdict appeared
possible. Judge Troup discharged the Jury.
The case against Morrlssey waa not con
sidered a very strong one. Only one wit
ness identified him and he was not positive
in his Identification. Other testimony
showed he had been seen in company with
Mickey Ford the night of tho holdup about
six blocks from tho saloon of John Rybln,
which was held up. The defense Intro
duced evidence to show the defendant was
too drunk the night of the crime to have
participated In the holdup. The defendant
was informed against under the name of
Morrlssey, but his true name Is Morrison.

burglary at a room In the Roma hotel and

In which he not only -vigorously attacks
the constitutionality of the law, but also
goes after those who operated It against

he has always kept liquor In his house and

the sheriff of Dawes county is a dealer in
horses also and Is a teetotaler, and that

Attorney Slabaugh seeks to have that de

the franchise at some $27,000. The company
ascerted the valuation was arrived at by
making the franchise equal to the value
of the gross receipts of the company. The
company also asserts It was granted a

The republicans of Lancaster county are
In a peculiar position Insofar as the selec

cerned. For some time politicians In the
outside counties, ss well ss some of the

Allen W. Meld to make the race against
Congressman Pollard. Recently Judge
Field and Judge Holmes discussed the mat

Is to have a candidate J'idge Holmes ex
pects to be the man, as he was turned
down by the congressional convention a
year ago. If Judge Holmes comes out as
a candidate It Is said Judge Lincoln Frost
will also get Into the running.
This will give all the other counties an
excuse to get out their favorite sons, with
tho result that Lancaster county may not
only lose the nominee, but may also cause
a break with Cass county, which will give
the nominee to the outside counties for
years to come.
Many of the politicians In this county are
anxious for the delegation this year to be
given to Pollard, and thus cement the.
lleup with Cass county. Then two years
from now, If Lancaster county wants tho
congressman. It could, with some hope of
success, call upon Cass county for assist

and help turn down Pollard then Ijancaster
may have a hard time getting the lion's
