LINCOLN , March 17. ( Special to The
Dec. ) For the second tlmo the confirmation
the sale of the Outcalt property to Yonker
03. of Ues Molncs was postponed this
foronoou. When the court reached the case
on the docket the room was well filled with
the attorneys and other parties Interested
In the caso. Attorney Hall , representing the
Dos Mollies brokers , called up the sale and
moved that It bo confirmed. Attorney Harvey -
, vey for the receiver asked the court to
postpone the confirmation Indefinitely. IIo
Btatcd that the attorneys for the receiver
ilcslrcd time to formulate tlfclr objections
nnil that It would , bo necessary to receive
luUIUIonal Instructions from Washington.
Mr. Hall made a vigorous demand for the
Immediate confirmation of the salo. lie de
nied there- was any fraud , cither directly or
Indirectly , and that the firm ho represented
had made a bona fldo purchase of the prop
erty. Mr , Hall's plea for confirmation was
iloubly discounted a few minutes later when
"Attorney " Wilson , who represents the Galva
National bank of Galva , III. , arose and said
that ho desired on behalf ot his clients to
' ( " - move that the sale bo sot aside entirely , for
the reason that the claim ot Yonker Bros ,
liad been fully satisfied.
This statement created a rlpplo ot sur
prise through the court room and every
body looked to Attorney Wilson for the con
tinuation ot his statement. Ho then stated
J. D. Macfarland yesterday paid Into
the United States court at Omaha the sum
of $22,000 , that being the amount In full
ot the notes which ho had endorsed. Mr.
Kail was considerably taken back at the
announcement and could hardly conceal his
wirprlso. Mr. Lambcrtson confirmed the
fitatomcnt , whereupon Judge Tlbbctts an
nounced that the motion to confirm the sale
. \vould he postponed again until next Satur
day , Attorney Hull Interposed a serious ob
jection , and finally Judge Tlbbotts modified
the order and shortened the tlmo until next
Mr , Macfarland's connection with the sale
Is now fully understood. He endorsed the *
notes for Moslicr and has slnco paid them.
If the sale Is confirmed ho will bo practi
cally reimbursed , especially after the sale of
the rest ot Outcalt's property next Tues
day. The farm properly belonging to Out-
, U , rait la also to bo sold for tt.o benefit of
I * ? "Yonker Bros. , but as that linn has no In
terest In the case now the real beneficiary
.will be Mr. Macfarland.
In this connection It Is proper to state
that wlnlo Mr. Macfarland Is the object ot
no little criticism In Lincoln , his honor has
not boqn assailed. The attorneys who repre
sent other creditors are anxious , of course ,
to secure any advantage for their clients
that comes In their way , but they all agroa
that Mr. Macfarland's efforts to reimburse
himself are strictly proper , and that they
.vrould do the same under similar circum
stances. The real criticism against Macfar
land la occasioned by his acceptance ot tlio
receivership ot the Capital National bank , to
Hocuro which he was required to make oath
that ho was not directly or Indirectly Inter
ested personally. After Mr. Macfarland had
resigned the receivership , U transpired that
he was directly Interested to the extent ot
