Art" entirely new version of the
shooting in which Tobias, alleged
bandit and highwayman was killed,
was told yesterday by eye witnesses.
a- Their account of the fight differs in
many material instances from the
account of it given by the detec
tives. According to this new account of
the killing there was a fight be
twettn the bandit and officers before
any shots were fired.
Tobias is said to have been struck
on the back of the head while he
' struggled with the policemen near
the corner of Twentieth and Dodge
streets. In a dazed condition he
started to run east in Dodge street
followed by Detective Lundeen and
. Murphy. Murphy dropped with a
bullet in his stomach a short dis
tance from the place where the ban
dit collapsed as a result of the blow
he received on the head.
The bandit was clutching the re
volver in his hand when the officer
fired the shot throughTiis heart.
Tobias had been dead but a sb.ort
while wUen Lundeen stood over the
v dead body of his victim shaking
hands with and teceiving the con
gratulations his fellow officers for
what was termed "a good job."
" Say Shot After He Fell.
Tobias, they declare, was shot to
death by Detective Lundeen after
. he had fallen on a vacant lot, mid
way between Nineteenth and Twen
tieth streets on Dodge.
Tobias fired but a single shot.' It
struck Detective Murphy. His re
volver missed fire when he attempt
ed to shoot the second time. An ex
amination of the weapon used by
ie bandit revealed but one explod-
t shell. The cap of another shell
in the chamber of the pistol was
struck by the hammer, but it failed
to explode. ..,
Detective Lundeen fired six shots
from his weapon. Five of them
missed their mark. The last shot

five years active work to her credit,
covering the war period. Her father
was in the government marine office

during the whole war his laughter

The romance that made her the
wife of a Bluffs soldier began when
young Slhellhorn fell sick with the
trench fever in the Argonne October
15, 1918. He was taken to the Base
hospital at Nebs, where the French
girl was his nurse. He was dis

of the armistice, but remained on
duty in that sector as chauffer at

"It is very amusing that the

blunder after professing to have so
much information regarding Mr.

space in their editorial columns to

Rush. "In the first place, Mr. Pe

Vernon, well-known- local amateur
base ball hurler, and considered one
of the best in the city a few years
ago, staged one of -the greatest
"comebacks" in the history of the

when on the mound for the Bowen
Furniture Co., against the McCaf
frey Motor Co., he pitched his team
to a 7 toy 1 victory over 'his oppo
In staging this "comeback , he de
feated several of iis former team
mates, who played with Fontaine

Murphy-Did-Its, class B champions,
several seasons ago. Opposing Ver

best friends, old playmate and for
mer moundsman of the Murphy
team, Ray Maxwell.
Vernon allowed the heavy hitting
McCaffrey's but four hits, and
whiffed eleven men, while the furni
ture lads secured eight hits of Max

with one on, and a three-sacker by
Eddie Hollander, star outfielder. The
fielding of Left-fielder Koehler of
the Bowens also featured.

The Inter-City league race was
also settled last evening when the
Highland Park Pharmacys defeated
the Harding Creamery Co. in a hard
fought game by the score of S to 4,
thereby winning the 1919 flag.
From start to finish the contest
was bitterly fought and it was one of
the best games seen in amateur base
ball for many days. x
The Pharmacy's victory was prac
tically due to the brilliant pitching
of Ray Beloyd, who whiffed 12 men
and allowed but five hits, which he
kept well scattered. The fielding of
Riggie Deam featured. On account

Judge Refuses to
Annul Marriage of
Pair Still In Teens
Denzil Jones, 18 years old, failed
in his effort to secure an annulment
of his marriage to Eva Olson, 19
years old, in District Judge Troup's
Denzil was married to Eva, May
29, 1918, on his 18th birthday, and
they went to housekeeping, Denzil
working in a cracker factory and
Eva keeping house. All went hap
pily, Eva testified in Judge Troup's
court. The only trouble was that
Denzil's father, Myron Jones of
Havelock, did not look with favor
on the match.
So Myron Jones filed suit in
Douglas county district court to
have the marriage annulled on the
ground that Denzil was not of age
when the marriage was contracted.

Judge Troup held that the mar
riage was perfectly valid in spite of
the fact that Denzil did not have the
consent of his parents.
He urged the young couple Ito try
the bonds of matrimony again and

success of their youthful venture.

Lincoln, Neb., July 17. In a
statement given out to the Associa
ted Press Wm. J. Bryan, while es
pousing the league of nations, con
demns any alliance wntn trance.
Mr. Bryan insists it would be a
league within a league to the dis
credit of both. He says:
"An alliance with France is ie
ftnded on the ground that it is nec
essary for her protection. The
league of nations gives France the
same protection it does the other
nations. A leauge within the league
would not only discredit the league
and proclaim our lack of faith in it,
but it would be a destructive force.
It would disintegrate the league of
nations and disappoint the hope it
has ahoused. France might not
mourn, for she was opposed to the
leaguefrom the bginning, but
America would mourn andthe whole
world would -suffer.
"The president announced at Man
chester that our country was not
interested in a league unless it in
eluded the whole world. He was
right then and the people have not
changed. That sentiment ought to
cause the defeat of the proposed al-
hance by an overwhelming majority
