CHICAOO. Nov. 2. Charles E. F-rbstain,
of counsel for Ire O'Nell Browne, who was
recently nciultte.l of a charge of bribing
a rlnte representative to vote for William
Lurlmer 'for I'nlted States senator, was
Indicted today, charged wtlh corrupting a
number of the Jury which cleared Browne.
The Juror In question, .Urnnt McCutchen.
and Hehry T.' Stacy, alleged go-between,
according to their stores told to State
Attorney Wayman. received $250. which
they divided equally between themselves,
for McCutchen's vote on the verdict.
The first trial of Browne resulted In a
disagreement. The second. In which the
alleged bribery la said to have figured. !n
a verdict of not guilty. Among the wit
nesses for the state were three state repre
sentatives who confessed on the stand to
being paid $1,000 each for their votes for
Immediately the case went against him
Mr. Wayman began an Investigation of
numerous rumors concerning attempts nt
ampenng with veniremen. A weeK ago
he secured a clue which led to McCutchen.
Thu latter and Stacy, It is said, disgruntled
at the small sum which they say they re
ceived, resolved to tell their stories.
Starr la Disappointed.
Stacy In particular was anrry. He had.
he said, expected to receive a large sum
of money for his work, as well as a politi
cal job. He waa working on a small
salary, he said, and rumors that there was
plenty of money being spent In Browne's
behalf was a temptation that he could not
resist when he found opportunity, in the
form of his friend, McCutchen, on the Jury,
knocking at his door.
According to his confession, he sought
ut State Representative Eiickson and
asked how he oottld market McCutohen's
vote.. Krlckson, Stacy said, replied that he
was not personally Interested In the Case,
but, would put. Win in touch with someone
who waa. , -
Soon afterwards, Stacy narrated, he was
Introduced to Erbstein. Meanwhile he
(Stacy) had communicated with Mr
Cutchen. The Jury was closely guarded,
but Stacy managed to arrange a code of
slcnals by which the Juror would know
whether the financial arrangements with
Erbstein had been consummated. McCutch
en received the signals, and, according to
his own story, became a partisan of
Browne's at once. He voted for acquittal
on the first ballot, and argued with others
to bring them to his side. In fact, he la
alleged to have been quite enthusiastic as
Surprised at Small Par.
When the time came to realize on Mc
Cutchen's alleged perfidy, the latter and
Stacy went to Erbsteln's office, they de
clsre. They thought there would be at
least $2,000 'In cash and -easy Jobs In It,
at least, and, according to Stacy, they
could scarcely believe tholr eyes when the
lawyer gave them only $100. Later, they
state, he gave them$l!i0 more.
Stacy testlfed before the grand Jury
fl'st he made nearly ninety visits to the law
yer's office looking for money and Jobs.
Sometimes, he said. Krbsteln was "out."
sometimes he was told that "things
haven't been fixed up," or some other
excuse given. Once he waa given $10 to
take a trip to Springfield to see a certain
person about a position. No success.
There was talk about a place In the county
building, but this also came to naught.
Finally Stacy was told that the $260 was
all there waa In It for them. He was wroth.
McCutchen demurred to taking the atory to
the ststs's attorney, but Stacy said he
would go alone. McCutchen then reluc
tantly agreed to and went with him. The

who makes a pitiful and nonsensical excuse
for an action which he onoe deplored In a
tepubllcan candidate. There Is no consist
ency In the World-Herald editorial rooms,
there never has been, and this latest de
velopment only goes to show to what ex
tremea the newspaper will go when a
political laaue Is at stake.
A Very Lame Defease.
W do not wish to be unjust to Mr.
Hitchoook, but It appears to us his de
fense Is very lam and almost amounts
to an admission of the facta charged by
Mr. Howard. He admits borrowing the
money while Bartley was treasurer, but
says he got It through Hartley's bank at
Atkinson. That waa the delicate way In
which Mr. Hartley loaned to his friends a
large amount of the state funds, as la
well known. He deposited ths money In
his bank and then the bank loaned it.
That was a delicate and very gentlemanly
way of protecting hlmsnlf and his friends.
Mr. Hitchcock admits Mr. Hartley held his
note, which "was outlawed." and which
he never did pay, though he aaya It waa
f nally act tied In some way by Mr. Met
calfe. It la a denial that amounts to an
admission of guilt. The people of Nebrsaka
will not elect Mr. Hitchcock United states
senator. Oemocrata do not like that kind
of buaineaa any better than republicans do.
tuaaiii I.Ike n lealn Knell.
It b. admitted by many local democrats
that Kdgar Howard's exposure of Congress
man Hitchcock's connection with the Hart
ley defalcation has sounded the death-knell
of his political ambitions.

Thomas H. Tibbies,
later populist candidate for vice president and then editor of the Nebraska
Independent, the official organ of the populist party in Nebraska, wrote:
"It Is with the deepest regret that the Independent lg forced to defend
the party from onslaughts made by the only daily of general eirculatton in the
state which has been considered an advocate of the fusion cause.
"The following Indictment against the course of the World-Herald for
some years is the summing up of many letters received by the Independent,
some of which indulged In serious forebodings for the future on account of
the wobblings of that paper:
" 'The World-Herald abandoned Bryan for awhile nd fought for the gold
standard.' 'The World-Herald sold part of Its editorial page to the republican
state committee In the midst of an Important campaign.' 'The World-Herald
attacked the fusion state officers without cause and made .charges against
them that even a republican investigating committee, composed of some of
the rankest partisans In the state, would not sustain. That democratic sheet
has been the apologist and defender of every republican tlilef that tbe fusion
forces hare been able to convict." 'It (World-Herald) defended the pardon of
Bolln, the parole of Bartley a thing that decent republicans repudiated and
It now attacks the populist platform in the defense of Hartley's partner.'
"These are some of the protests that have poured in on the Independent.
As many, If not more, have come from democrats as have come from popu
lists. The Independent therefore concludes thst the ground taken by some
populists that the1 democratic party Is responsible for the erratic career of
the World-Herald and that any further fusion with that party by the populists
is a disgrace and a dishonor, is not

your dirty froth and mud at ths Hon.
lOlmer J. Burkett, hut now that your own
party have thrown the limelight on your
dealings with Bartley, and The Bee pub
llshsd tbe record, you squirm Ilka a
whipped our and get down on your knees
and beg personally for republicans to vols
for you. . It was all very nice when you
were belching out your abuse and misrep
resentations of Senator . Burkett there
waa no mud-sllngltig then but now It Is
awful since things havs taken a turn and
you are subjected to an Investigation; you
forget the old adatre, "That what Is

Aa an unbiased spectator of tha Bartley
episode I am suspicious of your slate
men ta because you hate not called on
Uuerdon W. Wattles to tell the truth in
regard, to the matter.
Mr. Wattles stands high In this commun
ity and hla word would go with unpreju
diced people. It seems to me conclusive
evidence of your guilt that you have not
called upon Wattles publicly aad Instated
upon hla telling the truth. He could not
atund a demand of that kind from an In
I 1 ahall be reluctantly comnelled to be
lieve that you are guilty, unless you
tvtll yourself of this means of vindica
tion. FRANK CASU.
HestaTlnaT for Sympathy.
