Excelsior Bonked In Oil Fonnd In the
BRAD8HAW. Neb. Dec. 27. (Special Tele
gram.) An attempt was mad j a few
nights sine: to set Are to the puhlic
school building at this place. The scheme
had been carefully planned by the would-be

offer a large reward for the arrest and
conviction of the would-be Incendiary.

TECUMSEH Judge W. H. Kelligar of
the Johnson county district court has made
a ruling in the Fred W. Buerstetla will
case, suHtainlng the finding of the county
court previously made. The case was on
the construction of tne will. It seems that
after providing well for his widow Mr.
Bucrstetta divided the balance of his es
tate equally among his seven brothers and
sisters. The property Is in lands and
moneys and Involves financially at least
$12,ntx). To four of ills beneficiaries above
mentioned he leaves their respective
shares of the estate fee simple; this Is to
be used or disposed of at will. To the other
three he bequeaths as much property, re
spectively, but leaves It as a life's estate.
The three children so discriminated against
desired that they should be as free with
the use of their property as are the first
four mentioned, and the case came up
for trial In the county court some time ago.
County Judge Livingston placed a con
struction upon the will, which would dis
pose of the property as above outlined,
and now Judge Kelligar confirms that de
cision. ROtSDIP OF

District Attorney Currie has made a public
statement, in which he says: 'I found,
upon an Investigation, that the trouble
was caused by a lot of hoodlums and out
laws, who openly violated all laws of God
and man and decency. The four men
killed Christmas were not connected with
the affair In any manner, and I am In
formed that the houses burned were oc
