other colored woman. All were rear

Stout, who was a big husky negro, and
a packing house worker, died In the South
Omaha hospital, November ftS. The in
quest was without sensational featv "i-
until the last of the witnesses on the
schedule had been called. A woman, who
gave the name of Emma Johnson, then
rushed out from the spectator's benches
and asked to be sworn. She had scarcely
made the affirmation when she excitedly
exclaimed that the witnesses when under
examination had told different stories
from what they said outside. She de
clared that she had been to see Stout In
the hospital and that ,hj had said thai he
had been stabbed by either Jim Smith or
Fred Harris. They were the closest ones
to htm, he said, when he fell. He also
said that Kd Flowers had kicked him.
This latter fact waa bi ought out during
the examination of the witnesses. There
were fifteen on the aland, but only one

The origin of the affray which led to
Stout's death was the cutting by Sally
Bloumfleld of another colored woman,
Laura Harris. This occurred at Twenty
sixth and N streets. Stuut, who was with
a number fo colored men and women, said
something about the affair when he got
Into trouble with Smith. He walked out to
the middle of the alreet when Owney
Woods threw a brick at him. He started
to run, followed by a crowd of colored
men, and at Twenty-sixth and O fall, and
thj crjwd fell on him. It waa then the
