In Omaha it waa not only possible
to secure the conviction of Bolln and
the imposition of a sentence of nineteen
years' imprisonment, but official zeal
sought out men charged with tamper

case, and caused their arrest. The peo

stripe given their liberty and an offi

mingled feeling of wonder and amaze
ment the accelerated movement of jus

It is worthy of note that the man
who consigned Bolln to nineteen years'
imprisonment was the same man who
was successful as United States dis
