Satarday evening n and evidently carefully pliaaad robbery was committed aear Platte Center. W. P. Bearley of Shaasrtilnah Iowa, had aotf adraftstalhoa to John Jamea,Owea Joaee aad two other man of that aeigh borhoadaadhad hroaght the horse to Celnmbsa. Satarday efUraoea ha drove owt to deliTar the horse which he lsdba htad his baggy. The price to' be paid for the horse was two thousand dollars oae f hfinaaad of which waa to becaah,but throagh some hatah in arrsagamsata the as sot asaeptsil aad Mr. Beezlay Aawat three mike from PletteCenterrataboutS o'clock in the eveaiag, Mr. Beezley saya that a man riding a brown horse came up to him and, engaging him in conversation, rode along with him for a distance. The straager keep striking hie boot with something which he carried in his hand as he rod aloag. The next thing Mr. Besalsy remembers is that he wae re rived from n state of uuconsciousneas about aa hour later by a German farm er who found him in hie buggy at the tido of the road, hie horse tied to a fence post and the horse which he had been leading tied to the buggy wheel. The farmer brought some water in his hat aad restored the esasslaai man to coneetoaanass and took him to Platte Ceater. He waa bleeding at the nose and couth when found and since haa had slight hemorrhages. He had evidently been struck with a sandbag over the face and neck, a blow ao powerful a almost to prove fatal. A pocket book which he carried ia hie inside pocket waa gone and with it $67.50. The money waa in the following denominations: Two $10 bills, nine $5 bills, one '$2 bill and a silver 50 cent piece. One of the $5. bills had some red ink on it, and the 50 cent piece bore the date 1857 and had the letters W. P. B. carved on it. A paper on which waa the pedigree of the stallion waa also carried in this pocket, but it was found lying in the bottom of the buggy together with Mr. Beezley V checkbook. The stolen pocketbook is of black axorocco leather and has the ini tiaia W. P. B. writtea on it in India ink. It was rather dark at the time of the meeting with the stranger aad Mr. Beezley is unable to girm a description of his features, beyond the fact that be had aboat an inch of beard on hie face. He rode a dari-colored horse with a rubber coat tied behind the esddle, aad wore a light hat with brass buttons around the band. No clue has been found which might lead to the appre hension of t!a robber. Mr. Beezley had some silver in his trousers pocket which was not disturbed. He thinks that this may iadieate that the man who robbed him knew somethiag about where he usually carried hie money, since he apparently went straight to the inside pocket where the pocketbook was carried. He also evidently knew that Mr. Beezley expected to return with the $1000 which he was to receive in part paymeat for the horse. When seen Monday by a Journal re porter, Mr. Beesley still showed marks left by his asasilsnt There were some red spots oa his right temple aad eheek aad the right side of his neck waa still stiff and sore. He related how the stranger kept riding up so close to bis buggy wheel that he requested him once or twice not to ride into the wheel. Fiaally he became a little "leery" as to the intentions of hie new acquaintance aad moved over to the other aide of the baggy seat. Tbea for some reason he looked backward from the left side of the buggy and thia gave the highway man, who was on the right side of the buggy, his opportunity. The right side of the victims face being turned to the front gave him full swing with his mur derous weapon. The article with which he he keatlappiag hie lag and the rubber cost behind his saddle ia described by Mr. Beezley aa being about two and a half feet long and looking like n rubber hose. He thinks it was probably a piece of rubber hose filled with saad or shot. Mr. Beesley ia not very hopeful .that hie assailant may ba Brought to justice. He thinks ha could not identify the maa if he should see him, aad ia dis peeed to takettoaxaUerpailosophicaily.

Ayres aad Hibberd were ia the city oa other hasiaam aad iatsrsstsd them selves ia this case enough to make in quiries. From what they learned of the police they expressed doabt that the ideatiScatioaof the Fremont maa is correct. Information from Kearney indcates that neither Saowden's father cor mother were in Lincoln at the- time aor aear the time that a man is said to have viewed the cornse, identified it, aad later paid the expenses of the beriaL It was said that the body was never idea tiled by the woman, who accompanied the maa to Lincoln, and that the stranger reported to her the identification of the murdered man, The body had been taken to the uni versity aaerfiral scaoot'e dissecting room when the maa first saw it. but his ideatincatioB eaased its removal to the uadertaking rooms where it waa later viewed by the Chief of Police Boutzaba. Datectiva Bentley aad Sheriff Baumaa had held Saowden ia jail at Fremont at one time, it is claimed, aad it is claimed, it was remembrance of the maa that led to identify the body as that of Saowden. Comparisons of descriptions, however, fall short. The corpse was heavier than it shoald have been to sally with his description. The chief diuereace seems to have been in the face, Saowden being of slim build, not well provided with flesh, the bones ia his face ahowiag through in relief. The murdered man had a round face . A scar back of the ear, kaowa to be a mark on Saowdea and incorporated in his personal appearance record at the penitentiary, waa also missiag. Mosari Ayres aad Hibberd ordered a pibtara of the corpse to show to rela tives of Saowden in Kearney. They eTpreosad themselves as very much in doabt about the dead man being Saowden. For some reason those who might throw soma light on the identity of the persons paying for tha burial of the corpse are discreetly silent. An air of mystery has been thrown about the case which some of those working upoa it say saems to be unwarranted. Slate Journal. Seaeel Board Meets.
