Ottotnar H. Ilothnckor , Administrator , VR.
Charles H. Smith , administrator , is the title
of a petition for partition and division of part
of the estate of the late Sterling P. Koumls.
filed with the county court yesterday.
. The document , after reciting the fuel of
Mrfl. Mamlo Hounds Hothacknr's death ,
utatcs that the principal heirs are
O. H. Kothackcr. widower , Wutterson
Hounds and Douglas Dustln Kothackcr ,
minor children of the deceased und plaintiff.
That on the Ifith of February , 1833. plaintiff
was appointed special administrator of the
estate and qualified as sumo. Petitioner fur-
t her shows that Mamlo Hounds Kothackcr at
the tlmo of her death was heir at law of
Sterling P. Hounds , Who died intestate.
It appears that C. H. Smith was
duly appointed general administrator of said
estate , and that the heirs at law in fact of
Bald Sterling P. Kounds are ; Martha
Kounda , widow , Mrs. Klttlo Smith , Sterling
P. Kounds , Jr. . George Taylor Kounds ; Wat-
tcrson It. Kotlmcker and Douglas D. Koth-
acker , children of Mamlo Kounds Kothackcr ,
That a largo part of the personal property
of the estate of the late Sterling P. Kounds
consisted of ninety shares of stock in the
Omaha Kotmbllcan company and an abun
dance of other personal property. That pe
titioner is , under the law of dis
tribution , entitled to one-sixth part
of aforesaid shares of stock.
The petition further sets forth that plain
tiff believes that Charles H. Smith , if ixjr-
mitted , will use said shares of stock for his
own cxclusivo benefit and against the In
terests of the heirs of the deceased Mamlo
Rounds Kothackcr. That it is
' the firm belief of the petitioner that
it Is the deliberate purpose of nald defendant
to wreck the property of the Republican com
pany to tho" detriment and damage of the
heirs of each estate. That defendant
has called a meeting of the stock
holders for February 34 for
the purpose of using said stock
Voting same in his own intc'rcs'ts'und to con
tinue himself in office. That plaintiff knows
that defendant intends.to vote himself a sal
ary of ? S.O'JO per year when | 1KX ( ) would bo
nn exorbitant price for his services.
That * defendant is wholly" and totally
Incompetent to control an important newspaper -
- paper and is an unsafe man to be loft in control -
trol of said stock and voting the same. That
defendant is conspiring to enrich himself at
c tho"cxiKnso ! of those who Have placed him in
a position of trust.
That plaintiff believes that defendant has
traded to O. H. Hallou certain property be
longing to. the estate of S. P. Kounds , for
(2r > 00 in stock of the Omaha Republican com
pany and taken said stock In his own name
L to further personal interests.
Petitioner prays that defendant bo cited to
appear in court and show cause why parti
tion should not bo granted.
Right on the heels of Mr. Kothackcr's com
plaint , Mrs. Rounds , accompanied by her
attorney and a lady friend , appeared in court
and were conducted to the private ofllco of
. Judge Shields , when Mrs. Hounds formally
submitted the will of her deceased daughter
. for probate. , The will bequeaths to O. H ,
Kothackcr $100 in lieu of any right of cour
tesy and the balance of her estate to- her two
children and requests that Mrs. Rounds bo
' appointed guardian. Mrs. Hounds also applies -
. . plies for , the apiwintment. in conjunction
with C. H. Smith , as administratrix of Mrs.
Kothackcr's'children. -
Young Ferguson Scorns Indifferent
RegardlnRHi'ti Crime.
Fcrpnson , the negro who killed Ole Olson
"Wednesday night was seen by u BEE reporter
yesterday. Ho was found reclining on the
bench in cell No. 1 , contentedly pulling away
at the butt of a vile cigar. Ho had entirely
recovered from his debauch of the previous
night and deported himself in the most in
different and nonchalant manner imaginable.
Ho is nothing but a boy , only past fifteen
years of ago , but the marks of unbridled
dissipation and vlco are stamped
indelibly ) upon his ebony countenance.
His forehead is low. his eyes small
and sinister , nose flat and lips thick and pro
truding , and everything about him indicates
A character vindictive and depraved. And
such Is his reputation , although he , himself
claims to bo as peaceful and harmless as a
lamb. After seine considerable coaxing the
scrlbo induced him to tell his story , wliicl
ran substantially as follows :
My name is Willie Ferguson. I was flf
teen years of ago. the Igtli of last January
My mother lives in Atchisoh , Kan. , on tlu
corner of Farce and Ninth streets. W
came from Kentucky right after the war. W
were slaves. I have a sister living it
Omnha , Mrs. Hattie Ewing. She lives or
Twelfth , between Chicago and Davcnporl
streets. I don't know the man they say J
killed. Never saw him. Joe Holmes is tlu
kid I was after. Yes , ho is older , bigger
stronger and meaner than I am. He's had it
in for mo for about three weeks. One night
a mouth , since I was playing pool with hm
in Colo's saloon on Tenth street. I wor
every cent ho had. He then wanted mo U
give him money to get something to cat with
I refused , and ho swore he'd do mo. He's t
bad nigger and carries a razor. Last nighi
about 10 o'clock I went into Barney Magin
nls' place , corner Fourteenth and Dodge U
play a game of pool. This nigger Holmes Is ° per
terms there. Ho refused to let mo play , sayIng -
Ing that they didn't allow coons to play there
Ho tried to take the cue from ino. I wouldn'l
let him , then ho smashed ma In the face yov
can see for yourself where ho hit urn
began to kick mo about the room. I got out
I was awful drunk , but I made up my mini
to get oven. I went to a room over Dr. Wor-
ley's Turkish bath establishment and got i
Sprit ) Held rifle I know was kept there. I slop
In the hull there , and had seen the gun. . '
found it loaded and , hurrying back to Ma
ginuls' , I stepped up on the steps , openei
the door , 'i > eked the gun iiilaum
flrcd. r was drunk , but I saw Holine
among a crowd of other men. Of course In
was the man I aimed at. I am sorry I killei
the other follow. I then ran back to tin
room over the bath rooms , throw the gui
upon the bed and waited for the cops. The ;
soon came and brought mo here. That's thi
whole story.
"If you are charged with murder In th
first de'greo what will you plead , guilty o
not guilty ! " was the query.
"Not guilty , of course ; I intended to gc
Holmes , und of course it is not murder who :
I kill another man. "
"How does it como you were so drunk loa
"Why , you BOO I had written to my motho
at Atchlson that I was sick In bed , and sh
sent mo $35 , und I was out blowln * invself. '
On being searched last night the followlni
letter , which the boy had probably Jut
written , was found on his person :
Omahu , Fob. llth , 1888. My Dear Motho

An Inquest was.hcld yesterday afternoon i
Iho council chamber , Coroner Drexel havln
cmpannclled the following Jury-.G.F.Bruckc
C. J. Menter , George Mcdlock , Geort

cffi e ,
The witnesses examined wore Joe Holme
Dr , Robert , Sam Montgomery , James Adum
Charles Heller , Alt Smith , James Kenned ;
Ed Hoffmiin and the two policemen wl
madu the arrest , Officers White and Hiu
The testimony of tbo witnesses agree
throughout and the Jury rendered avordi
to the effect that "Said Ole Olson came '
his death by means of a bun shot woun'd fin
by one William Ferguson. " Attorney Sim-
oral then ilicd an information against the
prisoner for murder In the first degree. At
torney Alexander Green , who undertaken
the defense of Ferguson , snys that according
to the statutes of the state nil that can bo
mndo out of the case Is manslaughter , as the
killing of Olson was purely accidental ,
Holmes being the man fired at. A number
of attorneys agree with Green on this point.
Among oilier attorneys consulted on this
score wns General John C. Cowln , who when
asked if Green was right in his assertion , re
plied :
"ManslaughterI If that is manslaughter , I
would like to know what murder is 1"
A case somewhat similar to this of Fergu
son's , is that of Daniel Drtacoll , the chief of
the Whyo gang who was hung last week in
Now York for killing his mistress , while
lying In wait for one McCarty whom ho In
tended to kill and for whom ho mistook his
ladylove. The Judge held that the shot was
a murderous one and that Drlscoll ought to
hang for It. The superior endorsed this de
cision and Drlscoll was hung.
The outcome of the trial of Ferguson will
bo looked forward td with considerable in
terest. If the prisoner should be hung , it
will bo the first execution that has takcu in
Omaha for twenty-two yc.irs.

ho was m the eastern part of the country liv

The Cut Hate of Little Advantage to
Jobber and Consumer.
Yesterday a BKE reporter took a walk
among the jobbing and other business houses
of this city to ascertain In what manner the
the owners wore affected by' the cut in the
rates between Chicago , this placa and points
beyond. The general Impression was that
the cut was injurious to trade , and that as
between this city nnd Chicago it resulted in
a discrimination in favor of the latter and
against this city by many cents. This was
not the cnso Immediately after the first cut ,
when tbo discrimination seemed to bo the
other way. Now , however , it was possible
for western points to order goods from Chicago
cage and at rates greatly below what the
same with railroad charges could bo secured

Grand Island for the sanio classes was as

Chicago to Omitlm the rules .for tha classes
above enumerated are S7 , 'SC , 18 , 15 ! ana 13 ,
which added to tlioso already given as ob
taining between this city and Grand Island

Iho several classes 81U , 7H. 00 , 554
and 47 cents , u discrimination against
Omaha , according to class , of 14 , 5 , 10 , 17
and 13 cents. Notwithstanding this discrim
ination , as also that eastern Jobbers are
Hooding the country with circulars offering
seductive rates , wholesale and retail dealers
are not ordering very heavily , at least moro
than is required by the volume of their
trade. They ro holding back because they
expect lower cuts and feel that a ten-days'
notltlcatlon is required before a .raise can bo
restored , they will huvo jilentyof time to
order all the goods they want. Two railroad
men told the reporter that their companies
were now carrying no inoro freight between
Chicago than they had hauled before the
reduction in the rates. Ono of- these said ,
however , that he know one Omaha merchant
who had fifty cars loaded and on thn track ,

intended to ship them , knowing that after

"Theso cuts , however , do us no good , " said
a citizen this morning. ' 'The coal dealer
enjoys the beuetit , but the consumer doesn't.
I bought some coal yesterday and paid the
old rate $13 per ton for it , and yet the sumo
coal sells In Hastings for $10.50 and Lincoln
for ill per ton. " '
