Ute. Km 11 Ruser of Chalco is tn the
Barpy county Jail at Papllllon with the
c iiargn agalmt her of being ait accomplice
In and accessory to the attempt to murder
her husband, made by John Slager early
on the morning of October 10.
County Attorney Itmgo of Sarpy county
went out to the Ruser farm, near Chalco,
Monday to decide upon the course to take.
He had determined that If Ruser wanted
to forgive Ms wife for conspiring to take
his life that aha might marry the Ruser
farm hand with whom she had carried on
the liaison he would permit him to do so
and not prosecute the wife. But Ruser
was .pot that ready to forgive. Instead
he will begin suit for a divorce at once
mid will retain custody of the 1-year-old
"No, I don't propose to forgive her and
I won't live with her. I am going to get a
divorce and keep my baby to myself."
That waa Ruser's reply to the county
attorney's inquiry to what he proposed do
ing. "I returned at once to Papllllon and drew
up the complaint and gave It to Sheriff A.
J. Bpearman, who has gone out to the
Ruser farm to serve it and bring the
woman lu to the jail," Mr. RIngo told The

cislon meets a cordial reeponse among the
people. He was Indifferent to public senti
ment, however, and did not determine on
his action until Ruser had declared his In
tention to break off with his wife.
And the man said, the woman she
gave me of tho tree and I did eat.
And the woman said, the serpent beguiled
me and I did eat.
It's the same old story of Adam and Eve
the man lays the blame on the woman
and the woman on the serpent, which. In
this case, Is the man.
j lie county attorneys says that, while
Mrs. Ruser has not repudiated her con
fession made to the Omaha detectives, she
Insists Slager and not herself Is responsible
for the shame and crime In. which both
are enmeshed and which has destroyed
homa. Slager, In his dull stupidity, say
"It's her fault. Bhe began It."
Slager still occupies a cell in the Douglas
county jail in Omaha. He seems utterly
Indifferent to his fata and makes no plans
lor his trial or hearing.
John Wants Matilda to Uo.
"I want Matilda to go to the peniten
tiary with me 1." I go and 1 guess I'm
sure going," said John Slager, who
attempted to kill Emil Ruser for his wife's
John peered out through the bars at the
Douglas county Jail where his sunburn
Is fast leaving a blank looking face.
"When Matilda and 1 get out we will go
sornewhare and live a decent life. That's
all the plans I have. I ain't seen no lawyer
and don't know what Is coming to me. I
think that three years ought to be enough."
John asked Interestedly whether Matilda
(Mrs. Ruser) had "welched" and denied
her connection with the murder plot or
not, and when told that she waa "standing
pat." he said:
"Well, she's Just as guilty as me and
Emll Is doing the right thing by both us,
Ha could never have took her back. But
I don't know what to think of the mess.
I have thought about It some and they are
doing the rlicht thing.
Don't you think
'three years la enough?"
Officers who have charge of Slager are
surprised at his absolute Indifference to his
fate and that he should blame the woman
as he does for his "downfall." They are
inclined to think he Is a mental incapable
and does not recognize Justice from In
justice. He apparently does not realise the
crime which he committed against Emll
As a matter of fact the law says John
and Matilda, if convicted, would be en
titled to from one to twenty years in the
penitentiary, regardless of what John
HASKELL SUIT NOT VALID
retltlon Could Be Made So, However,
by Attaching Affidavit, sva
That the S9W.O0O libel suit petition fllad
by Governor Charlea N. Haskell of Okla
homa against William R. Hearst la not a
I valid petition and will have to be amended
j before the suit can be heard In court is the
opinion of attorneys who have examined
The petition is deficient In that It la not
veiifleil by the affidavit of Mr. Haskell or
his attorneys. While thla was evidently
an oversight on the part of the lawyers, It
Is not considered fatal by attorneys be
cause It has been customary for the court
to allow the verification to be added at
any time before the trial of the case.
The statutes rtlnitng to suits at law
provide that all petitions must be verified
l y en affidavit, either of the plaintiff or
the attorney, stating that the facta set
I forth In the petition are true. There Is no
! surh affidavit attached to the Haskell pe-
titk-n. The attorneys merely signed on the
tilaiJc spare under the prayer, not even a
blank form for an affidavit being attached
! to the document
As the petition stands now, neither Haa
j kcll or his attorneys have taken an oath
that Haskell has been libeled by the New
iork editor. The document merely says
iio has and lets It go at that.
U Is not bfdleved, however, the omission
will Invalidate the service on Mr. Hearst.

told to hold tip his hands, which he did.
Mr. Hansen and the marshall quickly
searched the man and found him well pre
pared to get Into almost any building, as
he had a full outfit of burglar tools, con
sisting of keys and Jimmies of every kind;
also a loaded revolver and a flask of
whisky, and numerous straps for currying
