Stokes' Wife Takes
Stand in Girls' Trial
NEW YORK, Dec. ll.-The case of the
atate against Lillian Graham and Ethel
Conrad, on the charge of attempting to
murder W. E. D. Stokes, probably will
be In the hands of the Jury by tomor
The trial of the "shooting show girls"
held interest today through the reap
pearance of the spirited Miss Conrad
for cross examination and the unex
pected calling of Stokes' young wife late
in the afternoon.
There was sharp contrast in the appear
ance and demeanor of these witnesses
in all respects but age. The Conrad girl
has sworn her age to be 19, and the mil
lionaire's bride scarcely looked older.
Each Is pretty. Miss Conrad of the bru
nette type, while Mrs. Stokes Is a tall
blonde, with Titlan-hued hair.
The calling of Mrs. Stokes as a witness
for the state came as a surprise to the
defense and to the spectators. Her tes
timony was brief. She said she had mar
ried Htokes last February 11, but had
lived at stokes' hotel for four or five
months previous to that date.
The main feature of her testimony was
the contradiction of Miss Conrad's dec
laration that the defendant had met
Stokes at the Hotel An.ionla on the morn
ing of May 29.
Mrs. Stokes said her husband and her
self were away that morning.
Relates Story of
' Kaufman Shooting
CHICAGO, Deo. 14.-"Blg Fred'' Bone
liam, arrested today at Oakland, III., to
night confessed, the police say, that he
was one of the automobile bandits who
killed Mrs. Hattle Kaufman on the north
side on the night of December 2.
"You've got me." Bonehatn is said to
have confessed to the detectives who
brought him into Chicago;
"I was with the party that did the
killing, but I did not fire the shot.
"Rabneau fired the butlet that killed
Mrs. Kaufman and I had nothing to do
with the murder, except to take part In
the hold up. There was no intention to
till auybody Just robbery that waa all.
"The four of us, Stacey, Rabenau,
' Channel! and myself, were In the auto
mobile and we were out to rob some
body. Kateiiau saw the Kaufmans and
said: 'Thar goes a couple; let get
them.' Clu nnell stayed In the machine
and we held up the man and the
" 'The towhead,' that's what we called
ltabenau, waa to hold the gun and scare
'them while we went through them. The
woman screamed and I guess 'Towhead'
got nervous and pressed the trigger too
hard. Then we ran to the automobile
and got away from the ' neighborhood.
Afterward the gasoline gave out and we
abandoned the car."
Spotlight on Holdup
Stops Bold Robbery
' Light from a motorcycle circumvented
the holdup and robbery of V. L. McClan
ahan, a niotqrman, si Twenty-fourth
stref. and Grand avenue early last night.
A negro pointed a revolver In the car
.man's face as he started across the rail
road crosslug at that place, with the de
mand "Hands up." As McC'.ariuhan was
preparing to bid his wallet adieu a motor
cycle popped in at the psychological mo
ment, throwing a brilliant spotlight on
the negro and his victim. The light Im
mediately dispelled the shadow the negro
ran. The motorman hurried to his home,
416 North Twenty-fourth street, and re
ported by telephone to the police.

journey through California. Oregon and

more .than an hour's deliberation the
jury In the case of Richard M. Johnson,
a civil war veteran, charged with the

The first vote taken was ten to two for
conviction. On the second ballot only one
man held out for conviction.
Johnson said he would return to lila

his wife is able to travel.
This probably will be in several weeks.

her a confession of misconduct with
Griggs, and when Griggs appeared at the

Nebraska Senators Take Up Question
TOO MUCH WATER AT MORRILL
Ictor llfwlfr, After Spending;

Sn 1 ork.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, Dec. 14.-tSpeclal Tele-
gram.) The following telegram was sent
to W, 1 Minor of Morrill, Neb., today
signed Jointly by Senators Brown, Hitch
cock and Congressman M. I. Klnkald:
"We took up the seepage trouble at
Morrill with the department at length
and are assured that the government will
proceed at once to construct the drain
age ditch on condition that the citizens
execute a bond to stand one-half the cost
or to build the lat half of the ditch.
It appears that the town of Morrill is
even now greatly annoyed by water seep-
ng from the Sheep creek ditch. Cellars
are flooded, some roads leading to the
town are rendered Impassable and a great
deal of destruction of property Impends
unless an immediate relief Is applied.
A condition somewhat similar exists at
Mitchell, where seepage is causing dam
age. In this Instance the ditches com
plained of are not owned by the govern
ment, but they are trlstate or farmers'
ditches, and hence the general govern
ment does not feel that it can be held re
sponsible for seepage in these cases.
Hosrtrater to llaltlmore.
Victor Rosewatar spent today in con
ferences with his associates on the re
publican national committee and In dis
cussing matters In relation to preliminary
preparations for the convention. He
called on President Taft, Attorney Gen
eral Wickersham and Postmaster General
Hitchcok'k between times with Secretary
1 lay ward of the national committee and
David Mulvane, national committeeman
from Kansas. The day was an extremely
busy yone for the national committeeman
from 'Nebraska. Mr. Rosewater left to
night for Baltimore. He will go to New
York in a day or two, returning to Wash
ington aome time next week.
Dakotans at Banquet.
Senators Robert J. Gamble and Coe I.
Crawford of South' Dakota were the prin
cipal speakers at the banquet of the
South Dakota association, held last night.
Congressman Eben W. Martin of South
Dakota, Congressman John A. Magulre
of Nebraska, Congressman James Mc
Laughlin of Michigan and Thomas Thor-
son, a member of the republican national
committee, also made short speeches.
W. G. Ruggles of Huron, S. D., has been

Low Bidder Accuses
Board of Violating
Its Duty to Public
Legal action to force the Board of
Cuunty Commissioners to reconsider the
lotting of the new county building Jail
work contract to the Paull Jail Kulldlng
company is Intimated by R. C. Stewart,
head of the Stewart Iron Works company
of Cincinnati, one of the unsuccessful bid
ders, in an acrimonious letter addressed
to the county commissioners and received
by the county clerk's office today.
The letter closes with the sentence:
"We are entitled to an explanation and
if not received we will take such steps as
are open to any bidder on public work."
In the coutse of his letter Mr. Stewart
declares his company did not receive fair
consideration at the hands of the commis
sioners; he asserts they rejected his bid
in the face of the facts that It was the
lowest and came from a responsible bid
der and offered material 25 per cent su
perior to that offered by any other bidder.
We believe you have violated your obli
gations to your constituents" is another
pungent sentence in the letter.
The Jail contract was let to the Paull
company at XM.QW. The Stewart com
pany's bid was several thousand dollars
lower. The commissioners have not yet
seen the Stewart letter.
