August Mueller, a prisoner in tbe Stanton
county JalL who is under sentence of fifteen
years in the penitentiary for shooting his
wife, his father-in-law and his mother-in-law
last spring, worked a clever scheme.
It is alleged, to excite sympathy for him
self, in the boue that If the supreme court
grants him a new trial be might stand
better chance of being set free. He broke
open the JaU liberated a fellow prisoner,
and then told Sheriff Etucker that three
men had come and freed the escaped horse
thief. He declared that he had remained
in Jail because he did not care to run away.
People of the community began thinking
Mueller was a model prisoner on til Geb
hardt. tbe escaped Jail bird, was re
captured and told how Mueller had sug
gested the escape and had liberated Geb
hardt by means of an Iran bar which
sprung open tbe window bars. Gebhardt
said that Mueller told hlra as soon aa he
was Jailed that be ought to get out. and
then showed him how. Mueller declared
that he did not wish to escape, because
he knew he would be recaptured, and by
remaining he might have a chance to be
acquitted fn case a sew trial eras granted.

WILLIAM LOEB. JR,
Secretary to tbe President.
The following Is that portion of tbe letter
received from Colonel Mosby by tbe De
partment of Justice, which refers directly
te tbe alleged interview which appeared In
tbe State Journal:
The correspondent of the Richmond
Times-Dispatch came to my room and In
formed me be had a telegram from his
papr saying that Mr. Dietrich had de
nounced an interview of mine published in
the Lincoln State Journal as a lie. The
reporter wanted to know what 1 had to
say about it. I replied that 1 had not men
tioned Mr. Dietrich's name for some years
and hud no interview with any newsjiaper
man cm any subject and had nothing to say.
I advised him to -call on Mr. Scott Smith.
hich lie did. This correspondent also went
Bi.to the office of tbe .Lincoln Journal to ftsd

out the author of the dispatch in that
paper purporting to come from Washington.
He was told there that it was not sent
from or through the local office here. My
omn opinion is that the alleged interview
mas written up in Nebraska and falsely
represented as a dispart h from Washington.
In making public the above correspond
ence, Mr. Dietrich said today:
"Having so often been the victim of false
charges by vicious and reprehensible news
papers and certain of their allies, I feel
that an apology la due Colonel Mosby for
having paid any attention to the purported
interview which appeared hi the State
Journal of January 3, 1WT, which Colonel
Moaby In such strong language brands as
false. Were I guilty of the charges made
against me by such papers and persons,
they would not be as wicked and aa un
pardonable as the malicious, cowardly and
wicked, assassination of character , which
they have been guilty of in order te gain
political power and prestige. " The con
spiracy against myself, like that against
Alfred Dreyfus of France, has been most
cruel inhuman and wicked, and some day
will be righted."

aisle cn every floor throughout the Daylight Store in search of the thousand
last-day wonderfml bargains in store for them. And they were well repaid for
