GRAND ISLAND. Neb., Aug. 4. (Special
Telegram.) John Hamblln last night shot
and seriously, K not mortally, wounded
Miss Rachel Kneel, aged IS, evidently while
In a rage over unrequited love.
M.unblm, Mies Engel, Miss Dunham and
three young men were In a party coming
to the city, apparently all In friendly mood
and bent on enjoying carnival sights, when
H&mblln drew back, as if to light a cigar
In the shelter of a railroad car, and shot
twice. At the first shot Miss Engel fell;
the second shot went wild, but flashed di
rectly In the face of Mr. Smith a young
men walking with Miss Kent. Miss Engel
Is now In the hoxpltal In serious condition.
Hamblln made his escape.
Miss Engel Is the daughter of Mrs. Mark
Kent. Her stepfather Is a housemovor
and contractor In similar lines of work.
Hamblln has been working for him and
boarding at his place for about a year.
It has never been known to have been
mixed up In any trouble, but the fact that
he was smitten with the daughter of his
employer was noticeable to Mr. and Mrs.
Kent and they have exercised the usual
care In such cases, not permitting ths
daughter to keep company with him. Nor
was there any reciprocation of ths affec
tion on the part of the girl. There never
had been any Indication that the Infatua
tion was of such an Intense character as
would lead to any difficulty and when the
parents heard of the shouting It came like
a thunderclap out of a clear sky.
After the shooting Smith Immediately
turned to face Hamblln, who started to
run swiftly to the north and away from
ths city. Smith chaned him for a block
and then ran to the nearest 'phone to
notify the police. In the meantime soma
of the companions took Miss Kngel to a
nsarby house and called a physician, while
others went In search of Mr. and Mrs.
Kant. The latter had heard the shots but,
In the racket of the carnival, had paid
little attention to them. A few moments
later they saw their son running quickly
through the crowd and balled him. Upon
being Informed of the shooting they had
the daughter removed at once to the hos
pital. . Sheriff Dunkel was at once notified, as
was also Detective Bowers of the Union
Pacific, who immediately wired descrip
tions to all nearby points. A thorough
search was also made of the city. Later
In the night several parties started out In
automobiles. No trace of the murderer
has been found, however.
Hamblln Is a limn of dark complexion,
smooth face, weight about 150, with a deep
wrinkle alongside tho imxe and mouth on
both sides. He has never been a drinking
man, nor has his conduct ever been such
as to anticipate anything like his present
crime, though he is quick tempered. There
is considerable Indignation and some talk
of lynching In case the fellow is appre
hended, but no trouble on this score Is
Miss Engel will be given a rest of twenty
four hours, after which another operation
will be undertaken if her condition per
mits. The ball seems to have struck the
side of the spinal column and so torn the
nervous system that a complete paralysis
of the body from three Inches above the
hip down has set In, requiring artificial
means for some of the functions of the
vital organs. This paralysis may be per
manent. There Is considerable feeling over the
matter and, with a large crowd on the
streets, some trouble may result If the
offender Is apprehended and brought in
here tonight. Sheriff Dunkel has received
a message from the marshal at Dannebrog
to the effect that he has the man. The
Independent has a report that the descrip
tion tallies to the extent of a large1 lump
on the man's wrist and the amount of
money on his person. The weight, com
plexion, hair and general appearances
matches exactly. He la a complete stranger
at Dannebrog and gives ths name of Emer
son. He had a revolver when arrested by
tho marshal which had two chambers
empty. He desired to tall up Charles
Wicker, before being arrested. Wicker
being a resident of this city and a neighbor
of Kent's. There Is little doubt but that
the strsnger Is Hamblln. On the crowded

If Mark Jones would have presented his
case to some authority on affairs of the
heart the chances are he would not have
had his name registered before the peo
ple's bar Saturday morning, when Mrs.
Mary Anderson of 722 Bancroft street ap
peared and swore to a complaint charging
Jones with disturbing the peace. The case
stands unique on the people's bar scroll.
Jones wlU be taken to the city Jail as
soon as Police Court Sergeant Whelan can
find him. (
What Mark Jones should have done
would have been to have written to ths
Ladles' Home Advertiser or the Fireside
Record stating his case briefly and mak
ing a clean breast of It all, .saying:
'I am 60 years of age and deeply in
love with a woman just half my age, I
have a box of carpenter tools and three
sons, while the woman who is the apple
of my eye has a quit claim deed and three
mall children. We have both been mar
lied before. Her house needs shingling
and her woodshed Is falling to pieces. 1
have made love in honorable fashion, but
she turns the clock on two hours every
time I call. What would you suggest?
Mark J. (Stamp enclosed for reply).
Mark J. Tour case is not an unusual
one. Oet busy with the shingles and show
your love by works rather than senti
mental talk. A woman with three children
has passed the poetic period. Drive up
with an order of groceries and a bale of
hay for her cow and then hang your hat
up In the kitchen.
Jones went on the rocks about 6:30 Sat
urday morning, when he called at ths An
derson home and aroused the woman from
her beauty sleep. As Jones had been In
the habit of calling at the Anderson place
frequently, the woman admitted him, at
the same time chastising him for ths un
seemly time of calling. Jones walked all
the way from 1111 Military avenue to 721
Bancroft street, a distance of about six
miles. When he reached the side of his
lady love he asked to borrow 3 cents.
Being In no mood for lending money or
receiving callers at i:tt a. nv, Mrs. An
derson ordered Jones to go hence, but
Jones proceeded to hang his coat up and
make himself at home. Mrs. Anderson
grabbed a stick of wood and threatened to
make a dent In Jones' head. Jones Jumped
through a screen which released a raised
window. The window fell with a crash
and the glass broks. Jones ran until his
form looked like a speck on the horlson.
Mrs. Anderson donned her bonnet and
went down to the people's bar, where
wrongs are lighted and bad people made
The woman stated Saturday morning
that Jones had made seven offers of mar
riage to her. Mrs. Anderson Is 30 years
of uge. Jones is .
Ins thoughtful wife brought her hus
band's spectacles down to the police court,
although the husband had locked her and
children out and had abused her.
Thomas Harnett of 811 North Forty
seventh street, arrested Friday evening
hy Patrolman Aug lie on the charge of
drunkenness and abusing his family, was
sentenced thirty days by Police Judge
Crawford Saturday morning. The man's
wife and oldest daughter appeared against
him. The women cried when the police
magistrate passed sentence. All day Fri

"Give Tom his glasses. I know he likes
to read ths newspapers, so I brought his
speotacles down for him," sobbed the
wife as she was leaving the court room.

Louis Wlthoff was arraigned before the
police Judge for wife abandonment.
Wlthoff pleaded not guilty and had his
hearing set for August 18. Wlthoff's wife

mother-in-law, Mrs. Ellen Tlgley, of Coun
Victor B. Walker, colored, wss arraigned

Andy Bresaman of Twenty-first and Cum
ing street was fined $5 and costs by the
police Judge. Bresaman waa arrested Fri
day evening at Twenty-first and Cumins
streets by Patrolman Brady after a chase
of half a mile. Bressman had some trouble
in a saloon at Sixteenth and Burt streets
with a woman. Brady brought Bressman
to a standstill by firing a shot In ths air.
For pulling off a fake holdup behind
some bill boards at Thirteenth and Dodge
streets about 3:90 Saturday morning, John
Kelly was sentenced thirty days Saturday
morning by the pollcs Judge. Kelly has
been the police court more times than he
could count. He picked up with Max
Scherer. Joe Brown and Alfred Peterson
snd gave Patrolman J. B. Wilson a thrill
by making him think a real holdup war
In progress. Kelly admitted he was drunk
at ths time.
