GIVEN TO THEIR MOTHER Care of the Kussell Children Will Beat with tha Wronged Wife. APPOINTED TO BE THE LEGAL GUARDIAN dgo Kllcr Decides the Enil of the Case That Rented In Ills Court , nml Passed the Matter Up to the Dis trict Court. Ono feature of the Interesting and some what sensational race for the possession of the two Russell children has been disposed pf by the mother scoring a victory nnd pet ting the little ones under her protecting care , where they will remain until the de cision of the county court is reversed , pro viding that time over comes. It will bo remembered that Mrs. Mary A. Russell came to Omaha from her homo in St. Paul , Minn , some three weeks ago for the liuri > ese of finding her llttlo boy and girl , both of whom were sent to this city last July , that they might visit thelrfather for a few weeks during the summer vacation. The tlmo for them to return passed by , and becoming - coming alarmed she started out to hunt their place of concealment. Arriving In this city , through tha aid of friends she found the Children iu the custody of Cora Emeluth and kept in a two-room house n conplo of miles northwest of the city. Having found them ho first sought by peaceable means to take them from the place , but In this she was de feated , both Corn Kmcluth nnd George P. Russell , the husband , refusing to deliver them over to the mother. The next step was to apply for n writ of habeas corpus , which was granted by Judge Eller. Armed with this writ , two ofllccrs went to the house , whcro Mrs. Kracluth at tempted to drive them from the premises at the point of a rovolver. Not knowing any fear the minions of the law disarmed the yromaii and brought the children to the city , righting In the Courts. Then the fight started and during the Vfholo of last week it was war to tha knife , each side resorting to every artifice known to the law iu order to Rain points. Mrs. Russell found any number of no- ( Juaintanccs in the city who were willing to assist bar in her battle for her llttlo ones After the Children wcro taken before the court they were put in the possession of C. J3. Coon , who was appointed a deputy by Sheriff Bennett , and until last Sunday night thayvero Kept at his resilience , fearing that an attempt would l > o made to take them from him by force ho delivered them over to the sheriff and during the past week they bavo been with Mrs , Dennett. In thu meantime Russell brought divorce proceedings in the district court , charging bis wife with Infidelity and asking that the court give him the custody of the children. The case was called before Judge Scott , who pranted a restraining order , denying Mrs. Itusscll the right to rcmovo them from the county of Douglas. To prevent any trouble the Judge ordered that they remain In the custody of the sheriff until the divorce suit \rss disposed of that the question of guar dianship mfcht bo forever settled. This pro ceeding complicated matters to some extent , but notwithstanding this , the habeas corpus Bull was called for trial In the county court last Wednesday and wus fought ton finish , being concluded last night , at which time the mother was appointed the legal guar dian.All All day long the lawyers fought for points , with first ono ahead and then the other. Al D o'clock the arguments were completed nml Judge Ullcr announced that thirty minutes Jater ho would hand down his opinion. The minutes were hours to the anxious nnd wait ing parents , bath of whom declared that they were willing and ready to care for their babes A largo number of Mrs. Russell's friends gathered in the court room nnil chrervQ her up , telling her that she would win , as the right wus bound to prevail. She tad some doubu , however , and speut most of the time in weeping , while Russell pre sented a bold front upon being informed by ils attorneys that the battle was fought and won. * Judge Kller'n Dpclilon. Upon returning to the bench Judge Eller sent for the children , nnil a few minutes later they were brought in , accompanied by Mrs. Dennett and two deputies. As soon as the members of the party were seated Mrs. Russell went over to the children and clasjMjd them to her breast. In this position they remained some time , tears of mother and children mingling together. Then she loft them and seated herself beside her attorney , Mr. Halllgan. The coast being clear for Mr. Russell , ho slipped int kissed the children nnd then found a scat in the lobby. Judge Eller looked on and then called the court to order , after which he remarKed that he bad carefully weighed the evidence and that he had decided to appoint the mother the legal guardian of both of the children. Ho at once signed the letters of guardianship. There was no outburst , but a quiet little round of applause went up from the spectators who had watched the trial from first to last. Mr. Russell's attorneys stated that they wanted to appeal from the decision. The Judge Informed them tliat they could do nothing of the kind , as his court was a court of final Jurisdiction in all such matters , fl'hen they wanted to file a supersedcas bond , but again they were squelched by being told that the case at bar was ono where such u bond could not bo filed. Opinion of the Court. The opinion having been delivered the children were called before the Judge , who said that ho would refrain from saying any thing about the charges filed iu the case , as he did not want to inlluenco their minds against cither of their parents. That was n question which ho said that ho did not care to discuss. Then turning to the chil dren ho said : "Tho court takes no sides in this matter nnd only seeks to do what is the best for you. U is plain , very plain , that your mother is the most suitable person for jou to bo with , and my orders are that you shall go with her. I have appointed her nsyour legal guardian , which gives her , and not your father , the right to control you. 1 further find by the evidence that hns been before mo that your father and Cora Emoluth are not suitable persons to have the care and custody ot either of you. I nm convinced that if It had not been for this woman com ing between your father and mother this trouble would never have como and this sep aration would never have been. In addition to this , I aiso find that all of the trouble has bvcu caused by this woman who is not your mother and who is not your father's wife. " Mr. Russell's lawyer was on his feet as soon as the Judge had concluded his remarks , and protested. Ho urged that the testimony did not Justify the remarks of the court and that they were not a statement of the facts. I'nriimlly Given Her Unties. Judge Eller replied that the facts Justified everything that wus said and considerable more. The lawyer subsided nnd then the court imposed a duty upon Mrs , Russell by saying : "Take your children , take good care of them , but do not disobey the order of the district court , which commands you not to remove them from the county of Douglas until after the disposition of tbo divorce - vorco case. " Mrs , Russell did not need n second invita tion , and embracing the children which had been the bono of contention for these many days , she again clasped them to her bosom and wept tears of Joy , while her friends gathered around her to extend their con gratulations , There was no scene , nnil as the little group movedt out of the room three stalwart depu- tie's walked between Russell nnd his wife. Mrs. Russell accepted the invitation of Mrs. Dennett , nnd with her children for which she had fought and which she had won after a hotly contested legal battle , spent the night nt the sheriff's rcsidenco , adjoining the Jail. Russell followed his wife and her friends to the building , but when the heavy iron door closed , shutting htm out , ho stopi > od to shako his fist anil cursn , declaring that ho would have his children if ho had to go to the cud of tbo earth to get tfiem.

Dech has been troubled with heart disease lat terly and bis friends scout the idea of his attempting suicide. In his room was found n letter directed to his son , in which ho told him that his heart had been troubling him greatly and he should not bo surprised to hear of his death at any time. Ho adjured the boy that ho would bo the only support of his mother , and to care for her when his father was gone. Doctors worked with him the greater part of the night , an $ when n BEK reporter called nt his room above a grocery store on Tenth street this morning , ho was being vigorously walked up and down tbo room , Dech was in a somi-unconscious condition , but was nblo to eject a few of his well chosen epithets dl- rrcted at his attendants.

By his side last evening when found uncon scious was n note which has been zealously guarded from the reporters and Is thought to contain the clew to thocansoof his action. ckle a Trencher * Rev. EdmonJ Erb , a preacher living at Twenty-sixth and Vine streets , was the vic tim of an attempted hold-up out in East Lin coln late last night. Ho started from a grocery store on Twenty-seventh nnd O streets , nnd after going a block noticed that ho was being followed by two men. He took to his heels , and ran , with the men in hot pursuit. At T street ho stopped nearly out of breath , and turned in time to look down the muzzle of a big revolver. The preacher is not very muscular , but ho is gritty , and in response to the demand to "throw up your hands" ho made ugnib for the revolver. The fellow stepped back , and his companion yelled for hltn to bhoot. Rev. Mr. Erb started in the direction of the gentlemen of blood-thirsty predilections , nnd raised up his volco and yelled "murder" as ho did so. Both fellows took to their heels and escaped , while the reverend gentleman waited ten minutes for sonmouo to respond to his calls for help. Two men ventured out at that time , but the reverend gentleman was too mad to talk , and started homo. In the Criminal Court.

A young fellow purchased $3 worth of goods and ordered them sent to 1&46 U street. Ho presented a J7 check ostensibly signed by S. M. gamer and got , his ? 5 change.

At the Worthington military academy the other < day Captain Agor , the military in structor ! , reiwrted young Harry Zcbrung for deficiency I in markings. Zehrung made a re mark 1 in nn undertone which the military in structor interpreted to mean a pup , nnd which impression was subsequently affirmed by the youth. Captain Ager rushed at the boy and struck him once , and grasping his gun broke the stock over the boy's body. An investigation will probably bo made by the authorities , the boy's father having pro tested against that sort of military disci pline. Joe Tannehlll , the colored waiter who slugged his pastor , T. B. Gardner , was bound' over to district court today in the sum of § 500 bail for felonious assault , which was given.

HIS REMAINS FOUND IN THE SUBURBS My tery Surrounillntr the Disappearance of the Ilnlned Hasting * Merchant V.t- plalned at Last Verdict of the Coroner's Jury. HASTINGS , Neb. , Feb. 4. [ Special Tele gram to THE BEE. ] Shortly before noon to day Charles Cameron , president of the Hast ings city council , was found dead by the side of an orchard of small peach trees , situated in the extreme southern part of the city. Mr. Cemeron had been for about eighteen years past a resident of Hastings , coming here from Lincoln. He engaged in the dry goods business , and niter the big fire of 1873 built the Cameron block on Hastings avenue and First street. For n number of years past he has not been succeeding as well financially as ho might have desired. On Monday last executions were issued by a number of eastern creditors and his block seized , Deputy Sheriff Bovd making the levy about C o'clock. Mr. Cameron after going to his safe said to Mr. Boyil that ho was going out to mall a letter and left the store by a back door. As he did not como back and did not go homo his friends became uneasy and a search was instituted. Conductors of trains which left Hastings that evening were questioned nnd every probable place in the city and suburbs ex amined , but in some way the thicket near which the body was found escaped observa tion. tion.On On Thursday last Mayor C. C. RIttenhouso issued j ; a proclamation that gave notice of a reward for the discovery of thu missing man , dead or alive. How thn Hody Wn 1'ouiul. Shortly before noon today , Mrs. W. L. Gray , the wife of a drayman living at P street and Lincoln avenue , south of the Mis souri Pacific tracks , missed some gccso which she had turned out to feed. She no ticed that their tracks led towarg this thicket 100 yards away and followed them. The gees > o wcro evidently In a part of the thicket Inaccessible to her , and so she walked on the outside of the clump of small trees. Then she saw what she supposed was a pile of old clothes but what she louud later to be the body of a dead man Returning home , she notified her husband when ho came to dinner , and together they pxamined the body. Then Mr. Gray noti fied the authorities. Coroner Irwin empanelled a Jury which viewed the corpse as It lay The news spread rapidly over the city , and soon a large crowd , impelled by morbid curiosity , was rushing to the spot Coroner Irwin summoned a jury , which viewed the body as it lay on the left side with the hat partly off , ono bund on the breast and the other crossed over. The limbs were drawn up and the back bent as if in sleep. The overcoat was tightly buttoned and out of ono pocket appeared n chewed end of a cigar. The ears were filled with snow nnd the whiskers were matted with ice. The gen eral appearance of the fuco was that of quiet slumber. Had Ilcen DriiiUlne. Near the body an empty bottle was picked up , probably ono of the two filled with whisky which Mr Cameron procured that day , the other having beeji discovered. After listening to the testimony given "by Gray nnd his wife , the coroner' * Jury brought in a verdict reciting that Charles Cameron came to his death from cxx > sufo and freezing between the night of 'January 30 and the morning of January 31. The discovery of the body and the verdict of the Jury gives credence to the theory that Mr. Cameron's financial troubles had driven him insane. When the crash came his disordered mind led him to wander off as far as he could irom his store. When ho crossed the Missouri I'acifip tracks , nearly a milo from his place of business , fatigue and the liquor taken during the day led nim to take shelter from the wind and cold by the side of the bunch of trees. Ho dropped to sleep and chilled to death. That his insanity prompted him to do this may be inferred from his having but a small amount of loose change with him , while ho loft nearly J100 in a bureau drawer at homo for his family. . , The discovery has cast a shadow of gloom over the whole' community , as Mr. Cameron was very highlv esteemed by all. Ho leaves a most estimable wife and daughter who are almost prostrated by the shock. A mooting of the Master Masons of the city has been called for tomorrow , pre sumably to make some arrangements for the funeral , as the deceased was a member of that order. SOML : FUNDS MLSSINQ.
