In' shoes. ' .....
Sheriff B. II. Andres of Buffalo cc-ui ty
testified that he "got sore" because
"somebody was buttln' In on his rase."
He didn't like the way Sammons worked
"with the Inspectors."
'I saw Walter Sammons .taking a great
hand In the game," "Andrews '.ostlfled.
He told of the arrest of Bammons at 6
o'clock in the morning, saying:
Inspector Brauer put his hand on his
shoulder -and said: 'I want you.'
" 'You must have got the wrong man.'
" 'I've been with the government '.wenty
years and I don't very often get the
wrong man,' Brauer replied.
."Waa anything, said about fixing any
one?" asked Attorney Howell.
"Not at that time."
-Attorney rinfrell attempted to force the
witness to tell .what ' Sammons said, or
la-alleged to have said, when the Inspec
tor hurried him along after the arrest.
Told by the Sheriff.
"Did he say: 'Honvoono In the postoffice
has coughed up his guts and Is trying to
lay this thing on' it?' '.'
"Well, I couldn't say."
"Did he swear?"
' "Well, he said something about some
body trying to lay "
"Did he swear?"
"Well, no yes."
"Were there any witnesses?"
"SI Funk and Phil Lambert were there."
It developed that Funk is still in Kear

fix the man who Is responsible for this?' "
"Had anybody said what he had been
arrested for?" ;
"No." ; - .
Andrews sought to go Into great detail
and decided to express his opinions about
the case at some length, but Judge Mor
ris and Attorney Jlowell prevailed upon
him to answer questions and leave opin
ions to the jury.
A. D. Rice, clc.rtt .in the Kearney post
office, and Assistant Postmaster Henry
Lambert were also examined.
Mr. Lambert said the footprints In the
snow were "Dieeon-toed" and "una nf
them looked like it didn't belong." !
Sheriff Andrews had testified that
"there was no doubt" about the "foot
prints being those of a man."

TcIN How He Did It.
Nebraska manufacturers who have gath
ered here for the two-dxy convention of
their association are subscribing their
names to a movement for the organiza
tion of a mutual liability Insurance com
pany to cover losses Incurred by the
manufacturers through the workmen's
compensation law which requires thein to
pay stipulated amounts to employes hurt
while on duty. It Is expected that they
will have the necessary number of sig
natures perhaps before the first day ts
over. Under the law they are authorized
to organize a mutual liability company
to carry the compensation risks of the
manufacturers as soon aa they get the
signatures of a group of manufacturers
representing In the aggregate 5,K em
ployes or more.
TonU Makes Address.
Reports of officers have been heard and
President C B. Towle of Lincoln gave
bis address. He praised the association
for tho part it took In the passage of the
workmen's compensation law and de
clared "Its passage Is among the Impor
tant events In our history. It is one of
the best and most progressive pieces of
legislation on the statute books, and will
be so recognized by employer and em
ploye aa soon as it has had a fair trial."
t'rsrea Mntnal Organisation.
"Our great work should now be the
organization of a mutual Insurance com
tany for the proper protection of our
members. Insurance rates now become
an important consideration. UaUii will
depend on the risk. Tbo employer who
safeguard! his men will receive in the
shape of reduced rates the benefit he
deserves. The use )t cafety appliances
and a record showing a low percentage
of accidents will Justly entitle one man
to a lower rate of Insurance than one
who neglects to take proper precautions.
Accidents in many pIhccs have been re
duced from 20 to DO per cent under a com
pensation law and -Insurance rates have
followed this trend. In Michigan rates
have been reduced 0 per cent In tho
last three months. In Illinois fully
per cent, partly dun to a better knowl
edge of the costs by the insurance com
panies, but largely on account of the de
crease In accidents.''
oe ( oinnirrrls) Independence.
President Towle spoko also of the com
mercial Independence that is developing
in tho Vnitcd States as a result of the
European war which places America
every day in the pottlon of having to
do without something they have Hitherto
been getting from abroad, when they
could Just as well have been manufac
turing it at home.
He gave It as his opinion that Nehras
kans are now to have a better legisla
ture than they have had usually, and a
governor who in a bualntss man.
"I trust tho compensation act, at least,
will not be tampered with until It Is
given a fair trial," he said. "Minimum
wage legislation will, of course, come up
aa it always does. In spite of the eco
nomic fallacy that Is buck of . it- The
fact that a minimum wage woild also
likely be the maximum wage seems to
have escaped tho notice of most of those
