corn Is entitled to a good, safe resting
place and so he ordered It consigned to
the vault In Ihe office of the superin

titled to some consideration, but he balked
at putting It in the vault. It took severnt

Jadare Chnritfs Prosecution with Had
Faith aail Dlamlssea Casea.
rtASSFTf. Neb.. April 21. (Specliil Te
aram.) Exposing his dlsspproval of the
action of the ronipl.tlnltit witrss ami hlnt-
Ina at bad faith In the prosecutions, Judge
Westnver tonlKlit dlHinlesed eight cases of
the state of Nebraska against lfc-rnard
MeGreevy, which were transferred from
Holt county to this county on a change
of venue and were to have been tried at
this term. A Jury whs empaneled In one
of the rasea Friday afternoon, and this
morning when the trtul waa about to be
commenced a recess waa requested and
the day waa consumed ny complaining wit
nesses and counsel of defendant In trying
to effect a settlement. These casea grew
out of the falluie of the Elkhorn Valley
bank of O'Nell. of which the defentant
was preHldent. At the time of the failure
MeOreevy. with Patrick Hagerty. the
cashier, fled and MeOreevy was later cap
tured In Arizona and brought back. It
appears that the complaining witnesses
were unable to agree among themselves
on terms of settlement, though It Is re
ported that an offer was made by de
fendant's counsel which would have re
sulted practically In payment In full of the
Indebtedness of the bank. The attempt at
settlement waa wholl;- between the com
plulnlng witnesses and counsel for de
fendant and the prosecuting attorney, and
the court was In no way connected with It.
Court reconvened tonight at 9 o'clock
ami Judge VMir expressed tils dis
approval of the action of tha complaining
witnesses and stated that It was Ida opin
ion no convictions could be secured In the
cases on account of the fact that It had
become known that the casus were not
aeemlngly being prosecuted In good faith.
He declared that not another dollar of
Holt county money should be used In pros
ecuting these caves and he thereupon sum
marily dismissed all of the casea on his
own moil. m and discharged the defendant.
In his statement he full exonerated County
Attorney Mullen, who waa leading counsel
fur the state.
The April term of district court for Rock
county has been In session all week and
adjourned tonlalit to reconvene April 25.
