for county clerk on the pop ticket,

suggested Colonel Hill as a repub

upon them, much to their dislike.

occasionally accept and publish
correspondence which may advance

Attempt to Seize the Shufeldt Dis
"rVEATETT OFF "RY DTIPTTTTRS.
Original Owners of One of the Wliljkj
Trust's Xeaaed Distilleries Make
Unsnccessfnl Midnight Attempt to
Recover Their Property.
Chicago, June 17. The anticipated
attack on the Shufeldt distillery, one oi
the plants of the whisky trust, occurred
at 1 o'clock a. m., when an armed party
of a dozen men attempted to take
possession of the distillery. The attack
ing party was met by the deputy mar
shals who had been placed on guard by
Receiver McNulta of the trust, and
after a harmless exchange of 25 or bC
shots the men were arrested.
Trouble has been expected at the
trust's distilleries since the recent de
cision of the Illinois supreme court de
claring the whisky trust illegal. Sev
eral of the former owners of the various
destilleries declared that under the de
cision the plants reverted to those from
whom the purchases were made. Re
ceiver McNulta promptly applied to the
United States marshal for assistance,
and for several days each of the dis
tilleries has been closely guarded by
armed deputy United States marshals.
The Shufeldt plant, whore last night's
trouble occurred, is located at Chicago
avenue and the river. The attacking
party secured a large scow, and when
first seen by the guards was gliding
silently down the river. The deputy
marshals quietly bunched at the land
ing, and when the scow neared shore
the men aboard were commanded to
surrender. They replied with a volley
of revolver shots and the deputies
promptly opened fire. Under the hot
volley the men quickly dropped down
the river and, reaching a landing, dis
appeared. The force of deputies at the plant
were doubled in anticipation of further
trouble. Who is responsible for the at
tack the authorities refuse to say. The
Shufeldt distillery was sold to the
whisky trust by the millionaire Lynch
family. One of the Lynches, Thomas
Lynch, jr., had been reported to have
declared his intention of regaining
possession of the distillery, and his name
was frequently mentioned today in con
nection with last night's raid. The
officials of the trust and the government
Authorities, however, refused to discuss
thepos-rla connection of Mr. Lynch
with the affair.
Serious Trouble Was Feared.
That serious trouble at the Shufeldt
r Calumet distilleries was feared by the
oncnoriGies was enaenc irom tne war

art Sheridan were practically under
orders to move at any time, but this in
formation could not be confirmed at
The fear expressed by the authorities
was that in tho event of a determined
attack on either of the distilleries seri
ous trouble would be caused by the spec
tators, many of whom were likely to
join in the attack. The possibility
a mob turned loose on
a wen stocKea aistuiery was not a
pleasant one to the authorities, and the
police ? well as the government
officers were uu the alert all day.

JURY SECURED IN" SCOTT CASE.
Attorneys For the Befense Make a Final
Effort to "Secure Blscharge.
Butte, Neb., June 17. The work of
securing a jury in the trial of the men
accused of the murder of Barrett Scott
was finally completed this forenoon.
After the jury had been sworn Attorney
Harrington for the defense gave notice
to the court that he would file a motion
that he hoped would dispose of the Bar
rett Scott case as far as Boyd county
was concerned. The motion, he said,
would be in effect that tho state
should be required to make a
showing in regard to the allegations in
the information which eharges that the
conspiracy to murder Barrett Scott was
laid in Boyd county. In the event that
the court sustains the motion then the
defense will move to dismiss the prison
ers at the bar on the ground that as
they have already been placed in jeop
ardy no further action can be taken
against them on the charge of murder.

he would not mind the arrests if they
