Wrecked by morphine, lcslle J. Daly,
once a director of School District No. SS,
Douglan county, appeared befoto Judge
Sutton in tho criminal division of tho dis
trict court and pleaded guilty to n chargo
of grand larceny. He threw himself upon
the mercy of tho court and In earnest
tones his attorney, Harry O. Palmer,
pleaded for another chance for him. He
probably will be paroled. Judge Button
took his case unl-5r advisement.
Four yearn ago Daly was a prominent
man In school district No. IS. Having
a wife, and several children, he was
deeply Interested in educational matters.
He mado a campaign for n new school,
wnn elected a school director and accom
plished his laudable purpose.
Shortly after the building of the school
house Daly's father, piomincnt In South
Omaha as a live stock dealer, died. Ono
sou succeeded his father in tho live stock
business, whtto Leslie continued on the
farm. All went well until Lesllo Daly
consulted a socialist who claimed to be
able to cure asthma. This physician pi in
scribed a remedy containing morphine.
Daly found relief, but In so doing he con
tracted tho morphine habit. Prom an
honest, industrious husband and father
he gradually turned to an Indolent and
Returns tn Omnlin.
A fow weeks ago Daly decided to move
to St. T.ouls. Ha established his family
there and returned to Omaha for sotrn
household goods. An expressman was to
have delivered tho goods to the North
western railroad freight depot. When
Dnlv callrd thnre the goods had not
arrived. He picked up and carried awny
a box of ohmmeters that lay on the
platform. Later he sold the ohmmetars
and his nrrest resulted.
Daly told Judge Button ho was under
the influence of morphlno when he took
the ohmmeters and disposed of them anJ
ho knew nothing of his actions except
what was told him ofterwnrd. Officials
of tho Northwestern road snld they bo
Uved his Btory and had no dcslro that
ho be prosecuted. County Attorney Gcorgs
A. Maguey said he did not caro to press
the caso against Daly.
"Whllo wo think ho should be pun
ished," said Mr. Palmer In closing his
remarks to Judgo Sutton, "we think a
Jail sentence,, would be sufficient, ond for
his own sukc and that of his family wo
