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 turn around. "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.

MORRISSF.Y JIRV CAXXOT AGREE 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.

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.

Simmon of Dawes .county who was sentenced to the asylum under the provisions of the' dipsomaniac law, filed ft brief In the supreme court this afternoon In which he not only -vigorously attacks the constitutionality of the law, but also goes after those who operated It against him. Simmons says he Is 50 years old and Is worth about IJO.OOO, which he accumu lated trading and dealing in horses. He denies ever being an inebriate, but says he has always kept liquor In his house and has taken a pull at the bottlo whenever the spirit moves him to do so. tie claims the sheriff of Dawes county is a dealer in horses also and Is a teetotaler, and that no member of the Insanity board takes drink, but on the contrary are prohibition ists. The sheriff, he claims, managed thi affair to get him in the asylum to get him out of the horse trading business. Western I'nlon Assessment. It has been placed squarely before the supreme court to say whether the fran chise of the Western Union Telegranh com pany la subject to assessment and taxation. The case comes up from Douglas county. where the district court held the value placed upon the franchise by the Countv Board of Equalization was wrong. County Attorney Slabaugh seeks to have that de cision "reversed. The county assessor valued 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 franchise by the United States and there fore it was not subject to taxation by the authorities of Douglas county. This ques lion the county attorney holds is lmma terial. The county attorney holds the franchise gives the company the right to THE VALUE OF CHARCOAL. Few People Know Dow Useful It la In Preservlna- Health aad Beauty. Nearly everybody knows that charcoal Is the safest and most efficient disinfectant and purifier in nature, but few realise lis value taken into the human system for the same cleansing purpose. Charcoal Is a remedy that the mora you take of It the better; it Is not a drug at all. but simply absorbs the gases and Im purities always present In the stomach and Intestines and carries them out of the system. Charcoal sweetens the breath after s.nok Ing, drinking or after eating onions and other odorous vegetables. Charcoal effectually clears 'and Improves the complexion. It whitens the teeth and further acta as a natural and eminently safe cathartic It absorbs Injurious gases which collect In the ctomach and bowels; It disinfect the mouth and throat front tha poison of catarrh. All druggists sell charcoal In one form or another, but probably the beet charcoal and tne most tor the money Is In Stuart s Charcoal Losenges; they are composed of the finest pondered Willow charcoal, and other harmless antiseptics In tablet form or rather in the form of large, pleasant tasting losenges. the charcoal being mlxl with honey. The dally use of these lozenges will soon tell In a much Improved condition of the general health, better complexion, sweeter breath and purer blood, and the beauty of It Is, that no possible harm can result from their continued use, but on the contrary, great benefit. A Buffalo physician In speaking of the benefits of charcoal says: t advise Stuart's Charcoal Losenges to all patients suffering from gas In stomach and bowels, and to clear the complexion and purify the breath, mouth and throat; I also believe the liver Is greatly benefited by the dally use of them; they or -4 but 25 cents a bos at drug stores, and although In some sense a patent preparation, yet I believe I get mora and better charcoal In Stuart's Charcoal Losenges tban In any of the ordinary char, coal table' a.1 use the streets and the right to be pro tected by tho taws of the state and of Douglas county and Is therefore a valusbls asset. Incidentally, tho brief states the company made no showing that ls fran chise was not worth what the county sr- sessor claimed It was worth. Cnnareaslonal aitaatloa Mnddled. The republicans of Lancaster county are In a peculiar position Insofar as the selec tion of a csndldatc for congress Is con cerned. For some time politicians In the outside counties, ss well ss some of the home talent, have been flirting with Judge Allen W. Meld to make the race against Congressman Pollard. Recently Judge Field and Judge Holmes discussed the mat ter and now It Is said If I-ancaster county 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 ance. Should Lancaster break with Cass and help turn down Pollard then Ijancaster may have a hard time getting the lion's share of the spoils of the district as It has heretofore had.
