These twelve Jurors were sworn st 6:10
o'clock yesterday afternoon to try Joe
Warren, charged with being one of the
accomplices of Jay O'Heitrn In the murder
of Nels Laustcn during the holdup of
Lausten's saloon at Twenty-first and Cum
ing streets on the night of January 20. It
was expected at the start that It would
require two days to secure the Jury, but
the defense and state waived the last four
or five challenges and accepted the Jury
as It stood at the evening adjournment.
An hour before the Jury was secured the
regular panel of jurors was exhausted and
Sheriff McDonald and his deputies were
sent, out to bring In talesmen. The first
man nabbed by the sheriff was Q. O. Wal
lace, the real estate man, who had gone
to the court house on bUHlness. Mr. Wal
lace protested against going, but the sheriff
insisted and he was taken to the court
room. He was about to be accepted as a
Juror when he made a statement to the
court, saying he had come to the court
house on business relating to the water
company appraisement as real estate ad
viser to the appraisers and had some mat
ters he had to report on at once. He was
excused by the court. Seven talesmen were
examined before the Jury was secured.
This morning the taking of evidence will
begin. The state will use Raymond Nelson,
who testified In the O'Hearn case, as one
of its principal witnesses In this case, and
the defense has asked that Jny O'Hearn,
who was convicted by a Jury and given the
death penalty, and Ieo Angus, unother ac
complice, who pleaded guilty and accepted
a life sentence, be brought from Lincoln
to testify In behalf of Warren.
It will be the contention of the defense
that Warren did not have a gun on tho
night of the murder and that he did not
remain at the post at the rear door of the
saloon where he was stationed, hut ran
away before the shooting was done. It Is
also asserted he was not a member of the
gang, but was picked up by it on the night
of the murder.

"I don't blame lh Jury. It was the only
thing It could do under the circumstances,"
declared Harrison Clark, the negro-convicted
of the murder- of Street Car Con-
ductor Flury. Thursday morning.
Clark talked somewhat freely about the
case, lie Is dissatisfied because his attor
neys would not let him run the case, and
he does not hesitate to say mi.
"It is true 1 admitted 1 was the leader
of the gang ae far ae the saloon holdups
were concerned," he continued, "and I
don't deny 1 was at the street car when
the conductor was shot, but I didn't take
the leading part there. 1 didn't fire a shot,
and Uathrlght lied when ho said I did. 1

Most of Clark's objections to the way
his case was handled relate to questions
he wanted asked on cross-examination, but
none of these questions related to very
material evidence. He declared he was
feeling as good as he could be expected to
feel under the circumstances. He occupies
the isolation cell at the county Jail.
Consumption la a brrm Disease,
Can It Start with a Coldf
This In a reasonable question and one that
mubt arise to the mind of almost every
one when the claim Is made that consump

prepares the system for the reception and
development of germs of that disease, thai
would not otherwise have found lodgement
It Is the same with diphtheria, scarlet fevef
and measles. They are most likely to be
contracted when the child has a cold.
That Is why a cold should never be neg

the danger. As a quick cure, for colds

be relied upon. Its remarkable cures have

held at Hampton Roads, Va., from May

Thursday morning and will be a guest at
the Paxton for a day or two, going to
Lincoln Saturday to confer lth Governor
Mickey relative to interesting Nebraska In
the forthcoming exposition.
Mr. Kohlsaat said he had received en
couragement from the governors of Mis
houiI, Iowa and Minnesota fur aid to the
exposition. He is awaiting the arrival of
George 13. Meiklcjohn,' n ho will escort hint
to Lincoln to see Governor Mickey.
"The exposition will begin May 1, 1907.
and it is the wish of the commissioners to
secure whatever legislative action may be
necessary by the several states. To this
end we wish to give what information we
can to the executives of the states in order
that they may make what recommenda
tions they may feel disposed to make by
message to the approaching sessions of the
legislatures. Many of the sltates have
already selected locations for their build
ings on the exposition grounds, and some
of them have already made the necessary
appropriations, notably New York, Penn
sylvania and Ohio, for buildings. What
we now particularly wish Is to have the
governors of the states not yet making
ground selections to appoint commissions
for that purpose and to visit the exposi
tion grounds and become otherwise in
iurmed aa to the extent and purpose of
Over Half Section.
"The exposition grounds comprise an
area of 360 acres, located on a beautiful
tract of land across Hampton Roads from
Fortress Monroe, Kewpoil News, but a
few miles from Norfolk and about six
teen miles below Old Jamestown island. It
also overlooks the site of the famous
naval battle between the Monlior and Mer
rimac and Is surrounded by innumerable
points of historic Interest dating from
the first permanent settlement of Eng
lish speaking people on the American con
tinent on the i:ttli day of May, lt)n7, down
to the present day.
The fifty-eighth congress authorized the
president to invite all the nations of the
earth to send their ships of war to the
scene of the celebration and there visit
the greatest rendoaVous that has ever
been held In the history of the world.
"The buildings will be constructed with a
view to permanence In that the new Jamen
