Tlio mob had gathered during tlio fore part of tlui night In Wyuka cometry , about a ! mlf a , milo southwest of the city , nnd it was douo so quietly and secretly that very ftiw citizens know nnjlhlng about It and these who did know \er > descrcetly remained silent. The vigilantes wuru fully SOU in num ber , arn.ed to the teeth , and were perfectly organi/cd , marching with military piecUsion to tin ; jail. Kvery face was securely masked. The first Indication of their presence tea a snnll number of people who had caught on that something was up was n cant ; of about tifty masked and armed men nulling into the llehlcd hall of the court house. A gray- bearded guard who was stationed In the hall was BO completely taken by surprise time tic had but time to glvo one wild cry of tenor when ho was caught and a guard placed over nlin. In an Instant the bull ropes ana tele phone wires wcro cut. A large number of the mob stationed themselves at Intervals around the court house wall to keen out per sons who might want to enter theard , while another party was endeavoring to force an entrance through the heavy Iron door on the t-outh side ofthncnmt house , but which resisted all their elforls. The crated window of Shlllon- benter's call was next tried , but this , too , took too much work , wlimi some one , evi dently the leader , gave the older to break Into the sheriff's ' ollloo , and cut through the floor. In n very short tlmo i\ hole three by six tcet was undo directly over thn cage In the cell. A ladder was chopped through and a number of men swarmed down It , meeting no resistance. . nnd with heavy sledges In less than ten minutes the door of the eago was broken open nnd Len taken out. lie fotiglil desperately , ami It wns not until the rope was around his neck , which was ifjmcklv douo , that ho seemed to acknovvl- edun tfmt his Kamu was up. lln did not spenk a word until ho was forced through the hole in tlio floor , u lien lie cried out , "Oh , Clod Almighty I" Ho was pushed and drag- Red out through the hall and to the foot of a tree not over twenty leet trom thn front door of thn court house , when n man sprang up the tree , rope In hand , nnd swung it over a limb. Then there was a cry ana a shout of "Pull him up. " Then there was another wait of a min ute , the rope was adjusted around his neck , and he was asked If hit had anything to say or confess. Ho answered that hu was Inno cent ot the crime of which ho was chared and convicted , and that his brother should bury him in the orchard of the old home stead south of the city , until ho was proven Innocent , when they should bury him by the Mdo of his father and like other people wore burled. At hrst ho bogged hard tor his life , but when ! io saw that his case was hopeless ho became Tory nervy and never faltered onco. A strom ; pull on thn rope nnd Shellen- berger died , with a cnrsu upon his lips , as hu said , "I'll haunt you s of b s If 1 can. " The body was hauled up about eight fret , when It was lowered and the rope fixed better around his neck nnd then was pulled up again and left hanging. Sholleuberger did not struggle In the least. There was no increment ot thn limbs and death seemed to have come almost Instantly. The couunnnd watt tiiven and the mob formed In line and In mllitarr order marched out of the southwest gate of the court yaru singing a Herman song. During the whole proceeding everything was ijulet , and the worK was neatly performed with such pre cision as to indicate a thorough understand ing and good leadership. Several of tlio mob wern Identified. It was known to have been composed mostly of Germans , chlellv from tlio vicinity of Shelleubergor's former homo. Deputy SlierllT Hubert , who was one of Iho guards at the jail , had all the Ite-vs In tils pos- Hcssion , but was not asked tor thorn , the mob evidently thinking their own way the best , nnd tlio demitles hud the good sense ' .r know they could do nothing to resist such n crowd. The body remained hanging until Go'clock , when Coroner tirauer cut It down and held an ln < ] ticst , Several witnesses were exam inetl and a vordlct returned In accordant with the above facts. Ibis afternoon tlio body was taken to tlu old homestead and will be burled a < ho desired. Not one word ol sympathy or regret for the dead man wa ; heard on thn streets this mprnlng. but every one expressed themselves pleased with UK night's work. There was to have been ar ntlemnt made the night previous , but tin sheriff having gotten wind of the scheme had Ilia jail ton well guarded. When thli was learned the mob changed their pro crnmme , quietly dispersed , and surprised thi Jail when they were not expected. U was rumored on the streets to-night tna warrants would be sworn cut for the arres of n number of members of the mob , and i number of Herman citizens expressed tliel determination to contribute to the dofenEe o anvono who might be arrested. A larg number of eltl/ens viewed the body as It wa hanging this morning. Among them wcr noticed quite a number of women. airs.

[ Special to the Ilr.i.J : This city was alive on Saturday ntul Its heart was aglow to welcome our victorious hook and ladder team returning from the tournnmcut nt Kearney , covered with glory , laurels , prizes and belt , and tlio pride and envy of all the stay-at-homos. The cltl/eus were astir early and at once produced a cor ner on brooms , bunting and llas , and set themselves at placing the city ID holiday at tire. A triumphal arch wes erected on Lin coln avenue of greens and flowers , with the motto : " 411-5 , " tvhluu was the most conspic uous ( nature. In fact these Hymbolic figures mot ono at every turn. The boys arrived on the 1:10 : p. m. train from the west. The people from the city and surroundlnc country for miles were on hand and met them literal ) ' with onon arms. A procession was formed , headed by the York cornet band , nnd about fifty or more of the lady trlnnds of the team on horseback , each one of whom were a broad sash with the Inscription 'wolcoine. " The line of march to the court house and around the square was one grand ovation. Speeches were made bv ox-Speaker Hnrlan , Mayor Scotland other promlnentcltlzons , coneratu- latlni ; the boys on their well and hard earned victoiy , which gives thorn not only the title of champions of Nebraska but of the world. Nothing was too good"for them , and after the speech making WOK over they were escorted to the Dlodgett bouse , where an elegant banquet had been spread by the ever popular "Dad" . Alter doing lull lustlce to the dinner , nnd several toasts had been wade and responded to In the most happy manner , the balance of the day was given up to tolling their admir ing friends nnd neighbors how the victory was won. The only regret was that enough entries could not have been made to have run the free-for-all race , as the boys have just that amount of confidence In themselves to believe that the S500 prize and thu ndditional clory would have buuu tiottlug homo with the rest. Charged With Kllllnn Her Hnshnnd. HASTINGS , Neb. , July 24. Mrs. Fred Dick- man , of Harvard , Clay county , Is under ar rest , charged with the murder of her hus band , and n coroner's Jury Is now Investi gating the caso. Dlckmau formerly resided here , and a short time ago remarried his divorced wife. Uecently his wife sent word to friends here that her husband had died suddenly. A number of them attended the funeral , and while there were Informed of clroumstinces which aroused Ihf ir suspicions that Dlckmau had not died a natural death. Thov returned homo , but finally concluded that the c se ouuht to bo Investigated. Ac- cordlnclv the body was exhumed and upon examination , the neck was found tohavo been broken just holovv the base of the skull. From all appearances the blow that brokn the neck was made by a heavy Iron bar. There Is croat excitement In both Adams and Clay counties , and If the coroner's jury develop any facts tending to show the suspicions well founded there will undoubtedly DO a lynch ing. Mrs. Dlckmau's alleged paramour is also under arrest as an accomplice. Another Kront Tumble * . Br.ATUicB.

I The sensation of the hour Is the escape of ex-County Hospital Warden Mc- Oirlgle , the convicted boodtcr , from Iho cus tody ot the sheriff. It appears that for some tlmo past Mc- ( iangle has been ( piling n eoo I deal nbout his tormcr boon compuilons to State's At torney Grlnnell , amihen the conferences were held between thorn Sheriff Mntson and n deputy would take McUtulgle out In n buggy to his home In Lake View , where ho had un interview with Orlnnell nnd n visit with his family. Ono of the conferences was arranged for last evening , but thu state's attorney was not feeling well when the boodle tilal adjourned , and sent woul that the meeting would be postponed until about GSO : In the evening. However , McGaiUlosent word to the sheritl that he itesliod verv much to visit his IIOIHO , and that kind hearted ofllcial brought his buggy mound and took McOarlglo aloiu without any accompanying deputy. At riving at his house the convicted boodler spent a few minutes with his wife and chil dren , and then asked Sheriff Matsou's per mission to take n bath. ThU was granted , nnd lie entered the bath room and closed the door. Soon the water could bo heard run ning Into the tub. and tlio vigilant sheriff sat dovv n to rest. He waited what seemed to film an uncom mon length of time and then rapped at the bathroom uoor nnd called McGarlgle. Xo answer was returned , lie then rapped at the door of the sleeping nuartmunt , and soon Mrs. McUarigle appeared on-dlshnbllo and yawning. "Where Is McCiarlglo , " snld Matson. "Why , Isn't ho In tlio bath ? " said she. Matson didn't wait to talk , and nfter looking around the house- little drove down to the jail like mad. As soon as possible tlio heads of the police and detective depnit- monts wuro summoned , togetliei with the state's attorney. Kvery available itacctivo was at once put on thu cisu , but , thoiuh this wns before midnight Saturday , no clue ns to thu whereabouts ot the fugitive has been ob tained up to 10 o'clock to-night. Thn mattei was kept extremely quiet by the ofllclnls , and only leaked out by accident this afternoon. It Is believed by everybody to liavo been thu culmination ot a well laid plan for the re moval by the gang of a dangerous Informer bv getting him out of Urinucll'sclutclius and out of thu country. Al thu snmo time , n sig nificant fact In connection witn this Is that "Uuck" McCarthy nnd Harry Varnell , the boodlers , called on McOanglo last evening about seven o'clock and had a protracted conference with him nnd It was after their departure that ho asked to betaKen taKen IIOIIIP. There was another rumor that the flight Is apart of ono of State's Attorney Grinnell's deep laid schemes which have before this repeatedly confounded the boodlers , but in this latter leport them Is not much cre dence placed. The police authorities have very little to say about the matter , but .seem to think the fudtlvn took to the lake and is safely on his way to Canada. Nothing elan Is thought or talked ot in local ciicloa to night. it Is stated this evening on the authorltv of the st te's attorney that though McCarlglo has been convicted , his bonds of SoO.uoO are yet held and that the bondsmen , Mlko Mc Donald and others , will bo hold liable If ho does not return , A novel theory to oxnlaln the disappear ance of McUarlule was quite generally dis cussed ihis availing. The Idea was nothing loss than that McCarigle had been kidnapped. His former companions in Ilia boodle ring were suspected of making way with him. The motive asciibed is tor fear that McGarl- ide. whom they undoubtedly know was no o- tlatlni : with the states atloi nev , would mttko such disclosures as lo beyond preadvenluio send nil Iho Indicted commissioners to the penitentiary , and also involve persons not In ofUco , but ot Iniinitoly greater Importance than any yet brought to book. The state's attorney acknowledged to-night that the sticking point m Ihe con ferences between himself and McUarlgle was the refusal of the latter to say ho would glvo Information implnciillug M. C. McDonald. To bear out Iho kldnapinc theory , attention was called to numerous suspicious circum stances , slight in themselves , lint thn greatest slress Is laid on Iho fact that recapture meant to McUarlgle n rlgoious prosecution on twenty-one additional Indictments , while the disclosures such ns vvoio desired guaranteed him freedom nnd no risk except trom Ihe anger of tits associates. The Informallon lliat Slales Atlorney Urinnoll could not Keen Iho engagement with McGarlirlo was , It seems , communicated lo Mcliniiglo before G p. m. McGarigle was deeply disappointed and pleaded with the sheriff to be taken homo anyhow. Chief Clerk Doherty would be there , McGariglo said , to make a final settlement of the ex- wnrdon's accounts. Doherty was not at Me- Garlglo's residence and lo-night denied hav ing had any appointment with him. This fact , coupled with the statements of neighbors that a horse nnd biuey vvere In waiting last night nnar McGtuirli/s house , torn ! to confirm the popular belief that mat ters were preariangud.

It U a fact that since ho took charge of the general land office mor thin two years ngo , though ninny InveSbeen the changes In the personnel of the force under him , not a single requisi tion has been nude upon the civil service commission tor's new clerk , nor lia any ono but a democrat , whose pnrty fenlty Is unquestioned , been glvon a place under him , He hit upon a trick ol uvndltiB the law soon after his cillery Into the position l.o now ( ills.

In tlio p ttunt olllce , which occupies lla moms adjoining the o of the general land olllce. theio ate to b found all the lower grades of clerkships. The plan of Spirks ins been to havobon'o clerk In the patent oltlce trans ferred to the general land office whenever a vacancy existed. The rules ot the civil "Pr- vice commbbion permitted this practice so long as the employes were within the classi fied service. The vacancies thus caused in the Patent olllce were lil'ed ' bv the selection of persons from the lower grades , fvhloli weio constantly bulni received from favorites of certain democratic sunatois nnd lemesenta- tlvcs. The civil service rules do not permit any ono to be given a place as a S'UO ciurk or ono of the hlgliur grades unless hu or she has passed the civil fcrvico examination , but there was a provision allowing special exam inations In dlffmont departments , nnd whenever - over a pnson who hut boon clven ouo ot the minor placns In the patent ollleo was found to bo suitable lo Ihe democratic chief of the olllce , he suouhl be submitted to the special civil service examination , and without delay derided to bo eligible tor n regular appoint ment within the classified seivico mm pin- motion nlso if n vacancy occmred an > where.

Nr.vv Yoiuc , July 24 , [ Special Tele gram to the Hun. 1 The week was a very dull ono on the stock exchange nnd but for the varying phases of Iho Hnltlmoro it Ohio deal would probably hnvu boon the most uninter esting on rocoid. Summarlzlnc the coursn of prices in the s'.iara list , It can be said Hint al first there was a show ot hi uincss , which was quickly followo I by n decline of Jto UJ-J points. Thou camn an advance which cai- rled n number or stocks up to the Inchest figures of the week and later a reaction which lapped off some of thn improvements. Liberal purchases of Western Union byS. V White , and of Richmond Turmlnal by John Stn > back made the bust stocks conspicuously slron ? at Intervals and led the street to ba- llovo that the Baltimore & Ohio negotiations had reached or nearly reached a successful consummation. TMs idea , however , wns speedily dispelled by Garrutt's Icttor announcing that the pending deal with the Ives syndicate wns olT. A rush to soil followed this , but It was ever nlmost In a moment , and then it was that the best quotations were attained. In most in stances the re nons for the suddxn lotiirn to tirmnrss vvere first that thenllmlnntlon of the Ives party as u factor had removed a heavy incubus trom th market , and second iv belief that other and prominent capitalists would form n .syndicate which would be acceptable to Garrott. In tacl repoils ot conferences held for the formation of mich a syndicate were treoly current late In the week , and found considerable credence. 'Ihey were sulllcient to keep the market firm tor a while In the hope of favorable developinciitsiuthat direction.
