It More Serious Charge Preferred Against the Unnatural Father. The charge of incest against Au gust Lehman was dismissed at the instance of County Attorney Oliver yesterday afternoon and the more ser ious charge of rape, upon the person of his 15-year-old daughter Minnie, substituted upon information filed by John E. White. The defendant, whose true name is Karl Augustus Lehman, was brought into Judge McArthur's court shortly before two o'clock by Deputy Sheriff O'Neil and during the brief court pro ceedings seemed to take no especial interest in the affair. When the formality connected with the substitution of the new charge had been finished Mr. Noffsinger, the defendant's attorney, requested at least 24 hours delay in which to go over the grounds of the new charge, sug gesting that in the mean time the state could call any witnesses they might have. County Attorney Oliver, however, requested a continuance of ten days, during which time he hoped to have the case ready for trial. Judge McArthur, after listening to both sides granted the continuance and fixed the preliminary examination for Friday, March 29, and Lehman'8 bail was again fixed at $3,000, which he was unable to furnish and was re committed to the county jail. The charge against Lehman is one of the most serious which can be brought under the Montana criminal laws. The minimum sentence is five years confinement in the state's pris on, and may be made life. Mr. White, who filed the information which led to Lehman's arrest said that for over a year he had thought that everything in the Lehman family was not what it should be, but that during the lifetime of Mrs Lehman he had thought she should have made complaint if any must be made. Tha letter which was sent him and sign ed by the two girls, telling of their father's criminal actions toward them had decided him, and as a conse quence he had taken the initiative. The five Lehman children are still in the county asylum under the care of William Penny, where they will re main until the case against their fath er is disposed of. SHERIFF'S DEED. Thomas C.
