HUNT FOR GIRL INCITED MURDER IS THE CHARGE The following taken from , the State Journal throws new lighten the Sellers' murder case. Miss Eunice Murphy of Cherry county , now charged with inciting and procuring the murder of her supposed lover , Charles Perry Sellers , a crime for which her brother , cousin and two neighbors are now incarcerated in-jail await ing trial , is a fugitive from justice , according to requisition papers is sued by Governor Aldrich upon the governor of Missouri. The hanging of Sellers , June IS , by some of his neighboring ranch men in Cherry county , near Cody , Neb. , created a sensation for a time , but when four men charged with the crime were placed in jail and bound over to the district court , the excitement " "subsided. Now it is charged by County At torney John M. Tucker that Miss Murphy , who later disappeared , incited and procured the murder of Sellers , her alleged motive be ing to get possession of § 7,000 in surance policies and considerable personal property which she is said to have believed would be be queathed to her u pen the death of Sellers. At the time of the killing of Sellers it was rumored that one" man in the party that hanged him to a telegraph pole was inspired by jealousy , he being a suitor of the girl. The complaint of the county attorney against the girl sets , forth'no such-motive , her mo1" tive being merely merceniry , ac cording to that official. Sheriff Cannot Find Her. Armed with a requisition for an extradition warrant , Sheriff C. A Rosseter of Cherry county , went to Missouri and no word has been received from him since. He was led to believe that an attorney named Kelly of Independence , Mo. , employed to defend the girl and her relatives and friends had her at his home. No word having been received from the sheriff as to whether or not he had found the girl , Private Secretary L. B. Fuller sent a message to County Attorney Tucker of Valentine and yesterday received the following answer : "Valentine , Nebr. , Aug. 26 , 1911. L. B. Fuller , Lincoln , Nebr. : The girl has not been se cured , but we have assurances from her attorney that she will be delivered within ten days. "Jonx TUCKER. " Attorney Kelly of Indepen dence , Mo. , was quoted by the Kansas City Times of Friday morning as saying that he did not know the present whereabout of Miss Murphy , but that she would appear when wanted. lie had been apprised that officers from Cnerry county were seeking for her. Governor's Requisition. The requisition "for the return of Miss Murphy from Missouri was issued by Governor Aldrich on the application of County At torney John M. Tucker of Cherry county. The application recites the details of the killing oHUharles P. Sellers and alleges that the killing was done by Kenneth Mur phy , a brother of Miss Murphy , and by George B. Weed , Alma Weed and Harry Heath , by hang ing , and that the crime was com mitted by the request and incitation - tion of Miss Murphy , whose mo * tive was to obtain § 7,000 of life insurance and considerable per sonal property which she believed Sellers had bequeathed her in the event of his death. Sellers is rep resented as having been paying marked attention to Miss Murphy Continued on Fourth Page. 400 Miles by Canoe. Four hundred miles by canoe on the waters of the Niobrara and Missouri is the novel experience of two Valentine boys ; Harvey Hornby and Charles Helzer. The boys started from the mouth of the Minnechaduza on August 20 , and reached Sioux City , August 28. They christened the canoe "Did-'e-dump" and V didn't the way they tell it. The trip was in terspersed with occasional tramps across inumerable sand bars. From Valentine to Allen bridge , a distance of about thirty miles , the river is about free of sand , be low there the river widens and it was difficult at times to keep from walking. The Niobrara empties into the Missouri at Niobrara City from there on , the going was easier but the Missouri runs much slow er than the Niobrara. The only damage done to their equipment was a hole scraped in the canoe on the rocks , and the pjiint was taken off from exposure. A short distance this side of Sioux City , they came up with another water passenger. He had a 6x10 skiff rigged out with- sail. It was christened , "No where Anytime" . He had em barked at Pierre , S. D. , on Au gust 2 , and when the boys passed him he was contentedly reading a novel and patiently waiting for a gentle zephyr to take him a little nearer his chosen goal , "Nowhere Anytime. " On account of wind and rain they stopped at Yankton , S. D. , a half day. The last day jf the journey they traveled between' SO and 100 miles. Witnessed Valentine-Burke Games. Charles Sparks , W.
