taken to the station and gave the officers
all the Information possible, including a
complete description of his partner In
crime. Wilson Is described as being about
26 years of age, Ave feet eight inches in
height and rather slender. He was wear

Detectives and officers were unanimous
in the belief that If it had not been for the
efforts of Fireman Gross Elliott would
have escaped. Gross took the affair very
coolly and said he was only sorry he
hadn't wounded the man who shot at him
so as to prevent his escape.
Plan Robbery la Prison.
In conversation with Chief of Detectives
Savage Friday afternoon Elliott sid hi
and Wilson had planned the robbery of
BonnenberE's store when they were serving
lime together In the penitentiary at Canyon
City. The two men came to Omaha Novem
ber 10, after being released a short time
before from the penitentiary and roomed
at the Lyons hotel. Thirteenth and Dodgo
streets. They had been advised by fellow
criminals that the job would be compara
tively easy to pull off and two attempts to
that end were made. They went to the
store Tuesday morning with the intention
of robbing the place, but were deterred
by the presence of several customers. A
second call was made Wednesday morning
but this also was futile on account of
others In the store
Elliott said he overslept Thursday morn
Ing until It was too late to attempt the I
. . . . -,, m . v ,
robbery, and by nerving themselves up to
the task by the use of drugs, to which
both men are addicted, the robbery wa
consummated as planned Friday.
The diamonds snd other loot stolen by
the robb.rs were returned to Mr. Sunnen
berg, and It Is believed every article taken
by the thieves has been recovered. Elliott
said he had agreed with his partner to
carry the spoils, as he was the fnstest
runner, and If Wilson had been captured It
wt'.s agreed Elliott should use the money
received from the sale of ths stolen go.ids
to Sid In the defense of his partner. Both

premiums In that d"pnrtmrnt rVre than

much more prominence. Coach and car
riage horses, and mules, will be added to
the department and made of some conse
quence, while all tho ..asses of horses will
be offered large premiums.
The directory also derided to offer a
scholarship at the State Agricultural col
lege for girls, as well as to add a secondary
premium of half a sholarshlp to boys.
A scholarship for boys of a year has
been paid to the best Judge of live stock and
corn. This will be continued and a scholar
ship of $100 given to the second best. A
scholarship of 20 will also be given to
glrlH, the method of deciding the contest yet
to be determined. It will, however, be
a contest In cooking an domestic eco

also voted to tho boy who Is third best
Judge of live stock and corn.
The board will ask the next legislature
for an appropriation of $125,000 for per
manent Improvements for the state fair
grounds, and In addition will expend In
permanent improvements the $M,000 profit
from this year's fair. The appropriations
asked of the legislature are for a $70,000
steel amphitheater, $5,000 for moving the
race track north to the track on which the
board now holds an option, and $00,010 for
a new swine pavilion.
