iFOBMEIl COXV1CT WORKS SHERIFF
Others Who Tried to Help Man Also
FREMONT, Neh., Aug. 8.-(Speclal Tele
gramsEd L.' Taylor, a discharged con
vict, who has been working for Sheriff
Bauman, Is missing and also about $500
which he had confidenced from his friends,
and a diamond belonging to the sheriff, a
couple of revolvers and other things. Tay
lor was sent up from this county about a
year and a half ago for horse stealing. It
was believed by a good many, Including the
sheriff, that he was a victim of clrcum
he came to Fremont, stopping at the Jail,
where he kept the sheriff's books, did er
rands and rendered him much assistance.
He was a genial, good appearing, well edu
cated man, who had traveled extensively
and had an honorable discharge from the
army service In the Philippines during the
Spanish-American war, and Mr. Bauman
became much Interested In him and had
confidence In his Intentions to redeem his
reputation. His term expired last week.
After he had received his discharge he
obtained from a party here $106 with which
to purchase a horse. He also obtained from
several parties smaller sums of money on
the strength of a check for $250 on a Cin
cinnati bank which he said had been sent
him by a relative. Everything wan sup
posed to be all right until this afternoon
when the check was returned through th
Commercial National bank as worthless. It
was then learned that Taylor left last night,
purchasing a ticket for Omaha. Before
leaving he had gone to a Jewelry store and
obtained a diamond belonging to the sher
iff, telling the proprietor that Mr. Bauman
had sent him after it. The total amount of
money he obtained, it is thought, will reach
$M0. besides the diamond and revolvers,.
which are worth $150 more. No trace of
him has yet been obtained. Mr. Bauman
Is much wrought up over the mattr as he
had hefriended him and assisted lilm as f.ir
i ns possible, regarding; him a faithful and
i reliable employe. Descriptions of him have
! been sent to the police of all the cities and
towns In this vicinity ana east ana souin.
, and It Is hoped he will be sooner or later
