Trrrell Talks of Case.
LINCOLN, Neb., Oct. (Special.)
F. M. Tyrrell of this city, who was as
sociated in the defense of the four men
who were tried at Valentine- for the
murder of Charles Perry Sellers, arrived
in the city late last night. He declared
today that the results obtained through
tho brief trial appeared to be satisfactory
to the people of Cherry county and that
he had heard no complaint with regard
to the sentence of life imposed upon tho
To the Intimation as voiced in press
reports, that Judge Westover had ex
ceeded his rights when he ordered the
Ktate's attorneys to accept a plea of
Builty of murder In the second degree,
Attorney Tyrrell said:
"No, I do not consider that Judge
Westover established a new precedent
when he ordered the state's attorneys
to accept a plea of second degree mur
der. The county attorney is an officer
of the court, and Is under orders of the
court. Tho court could have ordered a
manslaughter verdict if he wanted to
and the county attorney would have
been forced to accept. It was no more
an abuse of power on the part of the
court than to take a case from a Jury
and direct a verdict, or for a court to
ncJle prosse a case when attorneys have
neglected to bring It to trial.
"The scene In the court room when
the boya were sentenced was the sad-
dest one I have witnessed In twenty-five
years before the bar. It Is said In press
j dispatches that the boys were unpre
iturbed. but they were anything but that.
They will not be paler when they are
dead than they were when they stood
up to be sentenced. They knew what
was coming. It had been agreed upon
and we did not offer any statement ask
ing for clemency. Harry Heath had

Knox County Demos
Face Ghost of Many
BLOOM FIELD, Neb., Oct. 20. (Special.)
Politics In this county Is commencing to
get warm. Two years ago the democrats
made a vigorous campaign against 'of
ficials putting their own relations In as
assistants. They made a thorough can
vass of tho county and pledged them
selves to do away with tho relationship
proposition. This promise was flagrantly
broken by the new democratic officers
as soon as they were installed.
Two years ago the democrats made a
clean-up by electing every officer In tho
county, even getting five of tho seven
members of the Board of Supervisors.
In July, 10G, the democratic county
board padded the ceneus, thereby In
creasing their own salaries and many of
the salaries of the other county officers
and their deputies. Their paddod census
at that time showed the county to have
a population of 22. W0, when four years
later, or In 1910. the government census
only gave the county 18,338. This Jug
gling of the census has cost Knox county
thousands of dollars In the last five
The republicans have an excellent
county ticket up In this campaign. Its
candidates are pledged for economy
against nepotism, and In favor of the in
vestigation of the county records by an
expert accountant. With a united re
publican party In this county and with
hundreds of the best democrats In the
county supporting the republicans It looks
at this time that tho entire republican
ticket will be elected. The clean and
honorablo democrats of this county will
not stand for the political manipulations
of "the rotten democratic ring" in this
