Ntb. Julv J" -Mar lly had the congres
sional delegation, with .in escort of nearly
citizens of Pender, after a ride of twen
ty -five miles across Thurston lountv, en
tereil the confines of Captain Heck's res
ervation, when Deputy .Marshal Hoehme
rwooped down on William C Peebles und
John F. Meyers, placing them under nr
rest as conspirators ngalnst the govern
ment of lite I'nlted States. It was the
tlrst gun from Captain Heck, and the dele
gation of eUixetis, together with the con
gressional delegation, were somewimt non
plussed over the turn affairs had taken.
The warrant ehatges the men with con
spiracy to oppose the government of the
I'nlted States by force and to effect the
object ot said conspiracy, they armed 350
farmers and sent them on Hip reservation
to resist properly constituted I'nlted
States legal authority.
Tho excitement Is somewhnt abated.
The council was erected under the shade
of a number of trees fronting the school
house of the Omaha, agency. The con
gressional delegation took seats, nnd in
front and around them were gathered
at least 2i members ot the Omaha tribe
Senator Allen opened the council by
stating, through an Interpreter, that when
he was here u month ngo he said he would
visit them again and talk with them fully
with reference to their land", the question
of allotment being uppermost, lie then
Introduced to the Indians with f-olemn
form.ilitv Senator Thuiston Congressmen
Melklejohn, Strode nnd Andrews.
"We are here." said the senior senntor
fiotn Nebraska, "for the pin pose of listen
ing to your wants and our grievances.
We will then go to the Winnebago reser
vation, wheie troubles of a far different
character command our attention."
Captain Heck and the congressional dele
gation had a stirring session this morning
and violence was imminent for several
minutes at the Winnebago agency. lie of
fended the entire Nebraska congressional
delegation in his otllce and would
have ordered the senatots anil
congressmen from the room had
it not been for Senator Allen.
The proceedings began when Senator Al
len stated that the two senators and three
tepresentatlves of the i ongresslonal. dele
gation of Nebraska had come for the pur
pose of Informing themselves us to the
condition of affairs. In replv to this Cap
tain Heck made a sliort statement. He
stated that the FiourneyCompunv had sys
tematically lobbed thp Indians and that
It was a corrupt concern generally. Cap
tnln Hei'k said the membeis of the rioui
ney Company nnd every one of lis friends
and s mpathlzers were Infamous liars and
scoundrels. Just as the captain finished,
John !' Meyers, the treasurer of the com
p.in, entered the room.
' You are not telling the truth and you
know It." he said.
If n giant firecracker had been exploded
under the captain's feet he could not have
been more excited.
"Oet out of here," he cried: "get out
of here. This Is my ofllce. I -will not
have j on 111 It I am master here. You
have been arrested b.v the t'nlted States
marshal and ought to be In jail. I will
not have you here. Oet Out before I have
ou thrown out."
An exciting seem nsued. Senator
Thurston remarked. "I wish to know
whether or not this convintlon, represent
ing a majority of the members ot the Ne
braska congressional delegation. Is to pro
ceed without a repetition of such scenes
us the one we have Jut soon t nacted. We
are amply able to preserve order without
interference or assistance on the part of
anv one. If this delegation Is here without
right the right of American citizens to
know how their own, affairs urn being eon
ducted, I, for one, am ready to retire at
Captain Heck Jumped to his feet and ex
citedly exclaimed that he did not ri-cognlze
the authority of the delegation He did
not understand that It had any rights which
he was bound to respect It was. not a
committee or empowered to a t. It had
no right to Investigate him. He was re
sponsible to the secretary of the interior,
and htm only. He would not be iniulted
in his own otllce.
Mr-, 11e k, who had been sitting nt the
captain's back, and acting as a sort of ad
visory counsel, was also aroused. She did
not addiess the congressional delegation,
but In a voice, loud enough to be heard
by many, she referred to the senntor who
had spoken as an Infolent man and Insult
ing meddler. 8he suggested to those near
est her that the captain ought to order the
entire delegation out of his otllce.
The silence which followed thi scene was
becoming oppressive and Captain Beck
dgaiii' rose to his fec-t.
"Sit down;" Senator Allen spoke the
words. The captain wilt down. The Investi
gation proceeded without further tiouble,
Captain Berk submitted lettert and tele
grams to show that he had the approval of

The sentiment of the Nebraska congres
sional delegation, investigating the Flour
nay leases ot Winnebago lands, came this
afternoon In the h.ipe of the following tel
egram to Hon. Hoke Smith:
"Investigation now In progress leads us
to urge ou to suspend approval of lease
of Wlnneliago lands, made by Captain IlecU
dnd to promptly suspend further eviction

"Yes, sir, the works are in good shape,

are some extensions that ought Io bo
made at once nut In coid terrltorv. but
aside ftotn thnt everything Is now, and
will be found nt the examination to be, In
flrst-clBs condition nhd the city wilt have
as (oinplete a set of water works us nny
ity in the land possesses.
' There is but one thing where nny
trouble might be occasioned. At prccnt.
In operating the works oh both sides of
the state line, we have been able to have
an abundance ot water und power for Hint
district m the bottoms by using the force
of Turkev Creek station for supplying the
cltv and holding Kaw Point for the bottoms
and as n reserve in ensp of sudden emerg'
ctuy. Now thnt the city takes Turkey
tieek nnd does not get Kaw Point It will
have (o depend on Turkey Creek to fur
hish all or the water for the city and nlso
for the bottoms ns well. In ordltinry times
this Is no great demand, but In case of a
long file any small break In the m.t
i hlnerj might occasion gre.it annoyance.
Th- time is not fnr distant when the city
will Died either Kaw Point or some other
station similar to It In that part or Ihe
clt to supplv the bottoms
"The transfer of the works ought to be
made either August 1 or September 1,
Tin re will be considerable book work to
b completed for that event. The con
sumers In the city hale receipts to Oc

have a refund coming to them That will
nave to be determined and arranged. Then
many people who have meters have de
posits with us. They, too, will have to be
either returned to the depositors or turned
over to the city. In this manner It will
tocptlre some time to really make the tratts
f r These matters, however, can be enslly
arranged for with the city authorities.
There will be no delav on our pnrt.

"Now that the city has t own water

no doubt they will be considered the vi ry

helped revile them," was a remark made
b Major Jones with one of his chilli
smiles and sai castle tones. "There will
never be a lack of pressuie at a tire and
nothing will ever go wrong with them nt
any time. Hut leallv as a matter of fact
there has never been a lack of pressure at
any time. The works have at all times

"Hut nfter all that the contention is
over I am glad of It I came to the city
twenty i.f.ils ago nnd was met nt the llrt

Tho work of Bccu'lng n. Jury was com
pleted last night, enj announced nt 8
o'clock this mornltu ns follows: 13. J,

Kvatis. They nre. in charge of Deputy
I'nlted States Mnrsli.il Snow. Immediately
after the challenges Prosecuting Attorney
Hrejnchan made tic opening statement
for the state. It wat a forcible nnd atrong
statement, nnd If ie Is able to prove It
nil, there enn bo Mil doubt of a conviction.
Ho was followed by Colonel John 11. Hale
for Ihe defense. In n nblo speech. He In
sisted that the prisoners were Innocent,
and that they would bo nble to prove It.
The examination cf witnesses wan begun
nt once, nnd during the tiny about twenty
were examined. The most Importnnt tes
timony is to come to-morrow, when Jerry
South, who arrested tho Taylors nt Arkan
sas City, will be put on the stand. Mttlo
Nellie -Meeks will also be In the court
room. Not an Inkling of what the defense
will ndd to their former ease has leaked
out, but they promise some Btartllng tes
timony. When court convened the little room was
crowded to the doors with men and women,
ill displaying a curious Interest In the
Taylor brothers, who sat beside their aged
father Inside of tlnj bar railing. When the
court Instructed all witnesses to atnnd up
and be sworn, 0vtr one-half Ihe audience
arose. It developed that there nre IW
witnesses in the case.
Th llrst witness called by the stale was
Dr. Van W.ve, of Drowning, whs described
the wounds found by him on the bod
ies of the .Meeks family. On cross
examination he stated that .Meeks was shot
through the heart nnd probably Instantly
killed. Mrs. .Meeks was shot through the
heart and one of the chlldten In the head,
ily did not make an olllcl il examination.
li. C I.antK. of Hrownltig. described the
mining oi .uecKs, nis wile tinu me ciiiittren
iney were covet civ with straw and dirt
He and a man named railing going to the
Tavlor farm from Hrovvnlng found signs of
a disturbance In the road at Jenkln's hill
nnd a pool of blood. There was a pith up a
little side hill, as If something iind been
dragged up It. Kollowing it up they found
a Pool ot blood near a hit korv tree. This
was before Mrs. Meeks and her child hnd
been murdered, while she beerged ror the
lives of heiselt ami child. He then went to
the strnwst.ick and saw the bodies ot the
murdered family. The bodies lay In n hole
In the Hack, evidently sernped out of the
straw and the dirt mulct the straw, un
cross-examination he said he found a re
volver on the fa. e of the hill it lay In
plain view. It wis tlve-chambered. TJiree
cartriuges had been dlschatged and one
had been snajipel and had not been ex
ploded It was the revolver of Oils Meeks.
This is a new bit of evidence sprung on
cross-examination and not brought up in
the last trial. Lantr acknowledged that
the revolver was In the uostsston ot the
stale's attorney, but not Introduced It
has been In Henslev Polling's bank at
Mr. hantz also told of seeing Hill Tavlor
the morning the crime was discovered.
Hill went to his stole and bought some
soda He was drest,i as usual and there
wns nothing unusual about his appearance.
He had seen George Ta.vlor In town about
sundown on the toning before.
II T. Is. Curtis, a farmer who lives near
Hrovvnlng, was at the Heorge Tavlor straw
stack the morning after the murder. He
saw the bodies of the Meeks famllv, but
did not recognize Meeks until ho hud been
washed. He and thr.o companions saw
the si;ns of the tight and pools of blood on
Jenkln's hill and found the pistol. It was a.
pistol of a bulldog pattern with a four
inch barrel. A brother of (Ins Meeks had
recognled It as lius' weapon. On cross
examination he in know ledgcd that he was
oue or the crowd that hunted the Taylois
Harry Wilson te dried substantially that
he had seen the bodies of the murdered
Meeks family, tin signs or disturbance on
Jenkln's hill and the footprints of a. wom
an. These tracks the defense tried to show,
might have been made by the teacher In
the school house near by, nnd not by Mrs.
Meeks. On cross-examination Wilson said
be had been arrested at Macon for earrving
concealed weapons. It was drawn from
blm that he was In n crowd of eentx--tlve
men, some or them innske I and nearly all
aimed, who were looking rir th. Taylors
near Hrooktb Id nbout Julv 1, lx3. when
they were being brought b.i. It under arrest.
The defense . ndeavored to -how by this
witness tbit a number or the states wit
nesses vvete members ot thi mob alleged
to have started out to lynch the Taylors.
