The caso of State vs John Peysen
was tried before County Judge Ryan
Saturday. M. C. Jay conducted tho
prosecution, County Attorney Warner

of Ponca handled tho defense, A
large number of w itnesses were exam

effort of the defenso was to prove that
tho section of the statute under which
tho chargo was drawn, said the defend
ant must sell "malt, spirituous and
vinous liquors", tho "and" being in
serted instead of "ok". As Peysen
was only charged w ith selling one kind
of liquor, they contended he should bo
freed. At the conclusion of the case
Judge Ryan find Peystu $100 and

Omaha & Northran Road Representa
tives Expect Him to Become
Head and Front of Enterprise.
The rumor that James J. Hill would
take control of the Omaha & Northern,
the road which is projected to be built
next year from Omaha to Sioux City
over an air-line route sixteen miles
shorter than the present routes has
again been revived. The fact that tho
bonds of tho combination bridge com
pany at Sioux City are being quietly
bought at ISO cents has led to the idea
that he is deeply concerned in tho now
road. Tho increased demand for the
liouds is tukou to mean that next year
thero will bo increased tratlic across
the bridge and this can only be ex
plained by the prospects of tho sue
cessful outcome of tho Omaha &
That James J. Hill has considered
tho advisability of assuming control of
the road does not lack confirmation.
A lacal representative of the Omaha &
Northern, when questioned concerning
the matter yesterday, said that at the
time tho directors were elected it was
stated tha Hill intended to intcicst
himself iu tho rond and it was not
doubted that if he did decide to inter
est himself he would become the head
and front of the enterprise.
