8IOUX FALLS, 8. D.. Aug. 6.-(8peclsl )

in this city, has sustained the demurrer in
the case of Ole Haagenaen, a merchant of
Clark, who sought, to recover damages

The defendants In the action were Ware as
Griffin of Clark; Wyman. Partridge A Co.
of Bt. Paul; tha Manchester Biscuit compsny
of Bloux Falls, and Jewett Bros. A Jewetl
of Bloux Falls. Last May, upon application
of the defendants In the action, Haagensen
was declared an Involuntary bankrupt and
a receiver waa appointed to take charge
of his property. On June 1 a hearing In
the case was held, snd ss a result of tha
hearing Judge Carland revoked his order
sppolnting the receiver and ordered the
receiver to turn over to Haagensen such
property as bad come into his possession
through the receivership.
Hasgensen was awarded a Judgment
for the customary costs, but believing he
had been damaged, he filed an application
asking that the decision revoking the order
pointing a receiver be amended to the

The receiver appointed In Msy
wss not required to furnish a tsahd. The
decision of Judge Carland concludes aa
"There having been no bond taken In this
case, either pursuant to statute or the In

no remedy In this present suit for dam

from American consuls and consular agents

The Imparclale charges that recently cir
culated bills warning Americans to leave
the country before September 18 were cir

railway companies In Texas and California
have taken part In promoting the circula

He was seen going through St. Llhory In
the night. He ran Into a rainstorm and
his progress was thereafter slow. He was
compelled to walk a great part of the way

He fell asleep snd does not know how long
he slept. About six miles from Dannebrog
hla wheel broke down, he ststes, and he
abandoned It on the prairie. He was
drenched to the skin.
Story of the Arrest.
Hamlin walked Into Dannebrog about 6
o'clock last night. Going to Woods' restau
rant he called for supper. The description
of the would-be murderer had been sent
out thoroughly, not only In the Immediate
vicinity, but to all points In the stste, and
Sheriff Dunkel and Special Officer Bowers
of the Union Pacific had a complete net
work laid for the man, and with especial
reference to the home of a sister. In Wayne
county, whither, they believed from the
first, he would work. Mr. Woods, there
fore, suspected at once, when this stranger
called In the little village, that he was the
man wanted. He notified Irvln MrFarlan,
a special detective In the village, who called
In the marshal. Mr. Peterson, doubting
his own authority to make the arrest. When
these had returned to the restaurant Ham
lin had gone to the telephone office to call
up Charles Wicker, a neighbor of the step
father of the girl. Hamlin gave the name
of Emerson at the restaurant. At the tele
phone office he gave the name of Thompson.
He did not get to talk over the phone before
Deputy Sheriff' Dunkel. snd O. E. Hart,
who had been scouring the northern part
of the county all day, drove Into Dannebrog.
Hamlin knew the deputy and at once con
fessed that he was the man they were
looking for. but said, at this time', that he
did not do the shooting. The sheriff did
not know that his brother, the deputy,
would be In Dannebrog and thus' was on
the way before the news reached here
that the deputy was on hand. When tha
sheriff's party arrived Mr. Smith st once
positively Identlfled Hamlin, and Hamlin,
then In charge of the Dannebrog marshal,
remarked that he was sorry It was not
Smith that hsd been shot Instead of tho
girl, though he evidenced no great Inter
est In the condition of the young woman.
Tho party- started at S rjUUock , lor Grand

Hamlin Fears Mob. . .
Hamlin, when approaching Grand Island,
remarked that he had Intended to get a rig
and drive back" to give himself up. It was
remarked by one of the party that it may
have been well he did . not as there had
been some talk of lynching, at which he
wss surprised and somewhat slarmed. He
talked little, but smoked Incessantly.
Hamlin will be held without formal com
plaint for a few days until the outcome,
as to the girl, can be better determined.
He has no family connections here. He
has a sister In Wayne county, the only
known relative, but the authorities have

Comparison of this tabulsr exhibit with
thst of a week ago will show that sixteen
republican county conventions held In the
Interval have added 130 delegates to the
number chosen, making a total elected to
date of 638 out of S87 that are to sit In the
state convention. The greater number of
these counties failed to instruct for any
candidate for United States senator, al
though Brown secured Johnson county's
ten votes and Oirrle and Evans as favorite
sons were given Custer's seventeen votes
and Platte's twelve votes respectively. The
Brown prognosttcators at Lincoln had
given out forecasts claiming for him not
less .than half the delegates to be elected
last week, but In this he failed to make
good, resolutions of instruction In his
favor being voted down In Franklin,
Furnas and Harlan counties, which they
were confidently counting upon. SI coun
ties which did not instruct for any par
ticular candidate for senator, nevertheless
adopted resolutions endorsing convention
nomination and Instructing delegate to
sustain the call In that respect.
On the governorship, Sheldon sdded
Johnson county to his list, giving htm
total Instructions aggregating thirty-eight,
and Kearney county brought out Btate

From this It will be seen that twenty
counties will name 161 more delegates by the
end of the present week. Norrls Brown
is counting on getting instructions from
Otoe, Richardson, Frontlsr, Nuckolls, Clay,
Pawnee, as well as several minor counties.
Sheridan will promulgate the candldaoy of
Charles Weston for governor and a number
of booms for other state officers are on the
boards. The primary preliminary to the
Dodge county convention is on for August
9, with a hot fight assured to determine
whether Ross Hammond can fulfill his
contract to deliver the delegation to Brown
, in Congressional Contests.
The outcome last week In Nemsha and
Johnson, both of which Instructed their
congressional delegates for the renomlna
tlon of Congressmsn Pollard, Is supposed
to have settled that question by giving
him a large margin over the majority neces
sary to nominate. Judge Jessen, however,
