South Omaha, Douglas county, Nebraska."
This verdict was signed by W. P. Adklns,
foreman of the Jury, and J. F. Shultz, J. J.

ducted by the county attorney, James Eng
lish, and the defense was represented by
J. II. Van Dusen. The witnesses were
Andrew and Louis Jounschlet, Fred Hen
derson, Lehelgh MrFarland, J. F. Marvel,
Henry Elsfelder. Dr. E. 1 De Lanney and
Captain P. H. Shields.
Andrew Jounschlet was with Wesley Mc
Brlde and Harry Long from the time they
left their homes until they had tramped
over the river bottoms for some hours and
had made a campflre in the willows oppo
site the foot of Missouri avenue. There he
left the other two boys and returned home.
They had spent the afternoon hunting and
shooting at marks with the revolver which
Wesley McBrlde carried. He said Wesley
told him ho had bought the revolver the
night before at a store on N street and
with It a belt, scabbard and box of cart
ridges. Boys Meet Harry Lonf.
Most of the time was spent shooting at
bottles and tin cans. Wesley McBrlde and
the Jounschlet boy left the home of the
latter early In the afternoon and on tho
way met Harry Long. Harry Long went
with them from that point, but without
any special Invitation. On the sandbar
near the place where the shooting occurred,
Jounschlet said Wesley McBrlde said sev
eral times, "Shall I shoot hlmT" Indicating
Harry Long. He seemed to say It In a
Joking way and laughed when he said It
The Jounschlet boy said he thought he was
only joking, but told him "no" and not to
When Jounschlet last saw them, Harry
Long had kindled a fire and was gathering
dry wood to keep it going, and Wesley
McBrlde was seated by the fire.
Fred Henderson and Lehelgh McFar-'
land discovered the body of Long about
8 p. m., while they were hunting rabbits
In the willows. When they came upon the
body they were first attracted by seeing
the hat and shoes. They approached the
boy and found him lying on his face with
his hand pressed on one of the wounds
In his cheek. Ho was dead, but the fire
was still burning and seemed to have been
recently rekindled. They saw no one about

feet were marks of blood and evldenoe

crawled along on the ground. On the trees
up to the height of four feet were blood

been on his feet part of the time. These
two boys gave the alarm. Officer Marvel
corroborated the circumstances of the find
ing of i body and told of tracing foot
prints on the sandbar leading finally to
warn Kouth Omaha.
Boys See Wesley McBrlde.
Louis Jounschlet said he and ' another
boy met Wesley McBrlde about 4 o'clock
and that he was pale - and asked It he
looked pale. He told them he was 111 and
went on toward home.
Elsfelder told o finding the gun In what
appeared to be a. washing machine on the
back poich. He gave his opinion of the
mental condition of Wesley McBrlde, also.
Dr. DeLanney conducted the autopsy.

the police station Wesley McBrlde told of
the shooting and said the first shot was

verdict In a few minutes.
J. II. Van Dusen, representing McBrlde,
was the only one appearing, neither Wes

County Attorney KngiUh said after the
hearing: v "i Ins la -one of those unfortunate
casts which cannot be passed over lightly,
and of course there will liave to be a hear
ing before the courts. 1 presume a com
plaint with . the' proper charge will soon

may have a hearing on the present state
of the boy's mind after the preliminary
trial, or If mental affliction Is to be! the

HUMAN LIFE AS AN ASSET

Religion teaches that a man cannot give
more than his life for another.' The scientist
after cold calculation says that the gift of
a life cannot be more than a gift of 14.100.
That Is something for every person who
loves his own life or somebody's else to
think about. The scientist adds that he must
be in his prime, 30 years old, to be worth
14.109. The chances favor his being worlh

average life In the United States. How
many would sell .themselves to death for
Almost every one Indignantly denies that
he would seh himself so ' cheaply. The
scientist replies that In 1907 43 per cent
of the deaths In . the United States were
unnecessary at . that time. They could
have been prevented or postponed If ; the
victims had known what they might know
about the care of their health.
These heartless facts have been given
publicity by the United States government
In a pamphlet by Prof. Irving Flaher of
Yale university on "National Health," Prof.
Fisher has reduced life, death and Illness
to a matter of dollar and cents In an
effort to prove the economic wisdom of
teaching the Inhabitants of the United
Stales how to live long and keep well.
He bases his computation of the value
of the average life on a table prepared
after the study of similar tables made In
England. His table is founded on the es
timate that the average worker in Amer
ica, considering all grades, from railroad
presidents to day laborers, earns (62 i a
year. His value is then the capital that
would cam $523 a year at prevailing In
terest rates, averages, as to length of life
and revenue-yielding activity being con
sidered. A youth with 40 years of work
ahead Is worth much more than an old
man near retirement. Calculating from
this, Prof. Fisher- finds a baby Just born
Is worth $30. Mar Is most valuable at
30, when he reaches $4,100. Then he de
clines, until at 0 he Is only an expense,
and his value is placed at $700 less than
Such is the trivial worth of the individ
ual life, but the grand total value of all
the ft. 500,000 of us Is $200,000,000,000, making
the men, women and children worth more
than all the other national wealth. How
many of us would trade our Individual
lives for the cash value of the lot cf us?
Bui sickness and preventable death come
in and take a toll approaching every year
$2,000,010,000. They steal what we say We
would not give up for 'millions. Of those
who die 42 per cent might have livid if
they had profited by what is known about
the care of health.
There were 1,500,000 deaths in the United
States in 1907. Of these 630,000 mlgnt have
been prevented or postponed, and by such
postponement 830,000 lives, worth on the
average $1,700 each, saved.
In other words, unnecessary deaths every
year cost the nation $1,000,000,000 In capi
talized workers' earnings. In addition to
that 1,000,000 workers are ill every year, and
the wages lost during their Idleness
amounts to $00,000,000.
Illness and death also collect a heavy toll
In the bills of doctors nurses, druggists
and undertakers. The' L'nited States com
missioner of labor finds that the average
American working-man's family spends $27
a year for the care of death and sickness.
Since there are 17,0u0,000 families in the
nation, the total cost of doctors, druggists,
nurses and undertakers Is fu0,000,00. Dr.
Biggs of New York, arguing that tubercu
losis cost the patient "K50 a day, and other
diseases more. places, the total cost of the
care of illness and death at $1,500,000,000,

Lawyers Not Decided. '
R. S. Hall, the principal attorney for the
defendants In the Richard, Comstock, Jame
son and Trlplett cases, has not been offi
cially advised of the decision of the cir
cuit court of appeals.
"I do not know what we shall da," said
Mr.. Hall, 'until we can see the decision.
All we know Is from the press dispatches.
We are completely at sea in the present
status of the case, as I have not heard
a word from 6t Paul relative to the
W. F. Gurley, of Gurley & Woodrough,
attorneys for T. W. Huntington, Ami B.
Todd and Fred Hoyt, said:
"We do not snow from the press dis
patches whether our clients are included
In the decision, affirming the Comstock and
Richard cases. "Consequently we do not
know what further steps we shall take."
"We have heard nothing further regard
ing the case," said United States District
Attorney Goss," than appears in the press
dispatches. I do not know that the, Hunt
ington, Todd and Hoyt cases are Included
In the decision, although the issues in
volved were exactly the same as in the
Comstock, Richards, Jameson and Trlplett
cases. We have wired to St. Paul to get
further information as to the' full scope
of the decision, but owing to the absence
of Clerk Jordan, we have not yet re
ceived a reply.
. Conrt of Last Resort.
"The only recourse now left for the de
fendants lnplulejd in the decision is to ap
ply to the supreme court of the United
States for a writ of certiorari, which Is in
a measure equivalent to1, an appeal from
the decision of the circuit court of ap
peals. ' Whether this will be done Is a
matter that remains wholly with the at
torneys for the defendants."
The argument for the appeal before the
circuit court of appeals in May was par
ticipated in on benalf of the defendants
by Judge John Lacey of Wyoming, C. J.
Hughes, Jr., of Denver, present United
States senator from Colorado, with R. S.
Hall of Omaha. The government's inter
ests were looked after by District Attorney
Charles A. Goss and 8peclal Assistant At
torney General S. R. Rush.
In the trial of the case In Omaha, the
defendants, . Richards, Comstock, Jameson
and Trlplett, were represented by R. S.
Hall, John F. Slout and H. C. Brome of
Omaha and Judge A. W. Crltes of Chadron.

After a long fight both In tho circuit and
district courts of the United States Com
stock and Richards were compelled to re
move their fences.
Irving L. Baxter was at the time of the
initial proceedings in the case Unlfid
States district attorney, A. W. Lano as
sistant district attorney, T. L. Mathews
Urlted States marshal, and Ssivester R.
Rush special assistant district' attorney.
An agreement was reached between the
United States district attorney and Klch
erd 8. Hall, the principal attorney for
Comstock and Richards, whereby the de
fendants, W. O. Comstock and Bartlett
Richards, should enter a plea of guilty to
the original indictment, assurances having
been given the land department that the
unlawful fences had been or were being
The plea of guilty was accepted and late
that evening, some time early in Decem
ber, 1905 the accused men were arraigned
before Judge W, H. Munger for sentence.
Neither of the accused men had anything
to say why sentence should not be pro
nounced. Mr. Hall, their attorney, asked
that the court grant a minimum sentence,
as, owing to the prominence of the ac
cused and the fact that their offenue ut
the best was but a technical one, the ends
of Justice would be amply subserved by a
nominal sentence. To this proposition the
district attorney acceded.
Baxter and Mathews Go Oat.
Judge Munger thereupon sentenced Will
G. Comstock and Bartlett Richards to pay
a fine of $300 each, and to be "confined In
the custody of the United States marshal
for six hours."
The t fine was promptly paid. Marshal
Mathews was not in the court room at the
time of passing sentence, but reached the
court house a short while afterwards, even
before Mr. Hall and his clients had left
the building. Being Informed of tho sen
tence, he turned the two men over to the
care of Mr. Hall as special cutodlan, and
they were taken to the Omaha club and
entertained there for the stx hours limit
of their sentence.
A report was sent out that night by
