"First That the petition of the receivers for Icnvo to not nsldo and annul the scale of wages of the employes on said roatl In force when they were appointed anil to ao'opt anew now scale inducing the wages of the em ployes be set down for hearing before the circuit judges at Omaha , Neb. , on the 20th tiny of Muu'h. 1&91 "Second ' 1 hat the receivers cause n copy of this order to bo served on the proper rep resentatives of the employes on suit ! road at least twenty il ivs before the day llxcd for the hearing of the petition "Third That the roccivois grant to such of the representatives of the omploves as nro in the service of the receivers leave of absence to attend the hcannc on said peti tion and furnish thorn transportation to the plnco of hearing and return. "Fourth On the day appointed for the hearing ( and at an earlier day if practi cable ; the receivers or some person or persons designated by them for that pur pose , shall enter Into confeicnco with the representatives of the employes or vvitn suoh person or persons as they may desig nate for that purpose , and the parties shall confer together from day to day until they Bhall agree upon n scale of wages to bo sub mitted for the apptovnl of the com t. "Fifth Should the iccoivers ml the em ployes ho unable to agree upon n scnlo the point or points of difference shall be referred to the circuit judges holding the court , and after hearing the parties and their witnesses uncl counsel the circuit Judges will make such order In the promises ns seems to them right and just. "bixth The receivers and the representa tives of the employes may 'moot to confer about and agree upon now schedules of wnges at an caillor day than that set for the hearing under this order and the judges recommend that course to the end that the " entire matter bo ic.idy for the action of the court on Match 20 , Ib'JO " KCVinW OP THE GULP CASE. " It.ls lather significant , or at least It is so regarded in Union Pacllio ciiclcs , that the circuit Judges in their formal order should fall to provide for the subsistence of the employes while meeting the receivers of the Union Pacific upon vvago matters with a view of reconciling tlllTcrcnccB that now exist. Iheio is no mention whatever In the order which Judges Caldvvell and Sanborn direct to bo made when Judco Dundy's order is revoked about providing for the entertainment of tlio men while In confrr- cnco"tho receivers only being directed to furnish transportation to anclfiom the place of confctuncc. In the Gulf matter the Union Pacific has scored a most substantial victory , the order of Judges Caldwell and Sanborn In that case citing the receiver to appear before fore the court , sitting at Omaha Aimch 20 , when the matters in contioversy will betaken taken up on their merits. The order in this case Isshort but very direct , anil will tie filed Monday moinlng in Nebiaska , Wjom- Jnc and Colorado. Judge Thurston filed a petition In each of these states , very-voluminous in chaiaeter , citing the disparity of the orders made in the Gulf case nml asking for u review uv the circuit court , which Caldvvell and Sanborn now direct. General Solicitor Thurston leaves this 1 evening for New York and will moot the re ceivers of the Union Pacific Wednesday upon matters connected with the Union Pa- clflc. Should the receivers deculo to ask Judge Dundy to revoke the vvnco oiiler. In view of the suggestions made bv Judge Caldvvcll , the order nbovo will probably bo- comoof iccoril next Thutsday and immedi ately after the organizations will bo asked 10 send icpiescutatives to Omnhu to confer with the receivers as to a new sunodule. 1H.OOD ON Till : MOON. .

The native Texan Is not so particular , na hlu chief ambition Is to bo a cow puncher. IIo may retire from the cattle traffic and go Into buslneii or politics , but he will never give up being a cow boy. 13von If ho goes to the legislature or to congrcits , he will toll joii not about the bills ho has Intro duced , nor the number of terms ho has served , but with prldo will loll you of Iho early years when ho rode on Iho rango.

They como over hero with the Impression that with their superior education they will readily find n soft birth padded with Ameri can dollars. They are Invariably disap pointed , as they find lhat the Tettns have a marvelous faculty of taking care of them selves , and also that every Ungllshman can not become a bank cashier , so HOIIIO are content with the humble lot of restaurant cashier , while others , buy ranches 'THI : COLOIUD CONTINGENT. The negroes , nro the olhcr Important ele ment In Texas HOC ety. They nro , moro properly speaking , out of Texas sorletj , for they have no rights which the whlto man respects On the railroad ho Is exiled to a second class coach even though ho holds a first class ticket. In the theater ho Is per mitted only In.the top galleiy If ho were a millionaire they would not sell him a box era a scat In the parquet. As for hotels and restaurants , ho would starve before they would open their doors lo him. A Texan , speaking of his exporlence al the World's fair , said that ho entered ono of'lhe largo restaurants In the Windy City , and upon taking his scat discovered that a "nigger" was eating In the sarno room. Ho immediately callel the propr otor and gave him a P'CCLof his mind and told him that ho was a southern gentleman. This ho consid ered ns a very bright remark , and told 11 with great pride. AFFAIRS OF HONOR are as numerous In Texas now as they ever were. In the little town of Kocrvlllo nine men have boon killed sines last spring , and only one of the murderers has been con victed. There are bovcial men in the state who carry a dozen or more scalps , and jet tread this glorious land as free as the most Innocent of us. The writer had the gooJ fortune to sne ono of these shooting scrapes , called a difficulty by the participant * ) It seems that a young cotton buyer had some financial Iroubles with a planter who has a very bad reputation , having Iclllod a man hero tv.o > ears ago , and Is said to have killed two others elsewhere The planter came to town , and of course got drunk. Dur ing his carousal the other man stopped Into the saloon , and these old enemies Immedi ately had a quarrel , In which some pretty angry words were used. At Hst , as the cotton bujer was leaving the saloon , the drunken planter reached down to his boot and pulled out a six-shooter. However , as he did so , thu pistol wont off and shot him In the leg Ho was able , however , to raise his gun and shoot twice at his ensmy. The cotton buyer exhibited no surprise , nor did ho pull his sun , but stood perfectly still , folded his arms and invited the planler to continue But the crowd thought It was time to stop and took Ihe weapon away from the drunken man ; some one remarked It was not safe for n drunken fellow to shoot In a crowd. TEXAN SOCIETY Is a generous mixture of all nationalities , but many of the white Inhabitants como from the other southern states and with them comes the general shlftlessness of the southerner. In this same tropical climate , where with Irrigation nearly every kind of known plant will grow , ono finds but little lo relieve Us arid perspective. Where the exception of this rule Is lo bo found ono can safely tay It Is Ihrough Iho Influence of the northerner. In dilvlng through the city ot San Antonio you can readily tell the houses of the northerners by the beautiful grounds which surround thorn. In the smaller towns nothing Is altemplcd In Iho way of lawn decoration They think that they do well If they keep the front gale closed ngainsl Ihe stray "crltler. " As for society Iho wrller can only say ho has not been In Texas long enough to find It. As for protenslons there Is no state In the union so pretentious. No town Is too small to have its "smart set. " Money , of course , has a pressure , but to belong to one of Iho old families Is Infinitely preferable. There Is no place In the vvorld vvhcro the million aire Is of BO lltllo Importance. If ono can not Iraco his ancestry back to Henry VIII. ho had boiler emlgialo , for Texan socloly will never recognize. 1 > OOU WHITE TRASH. Another very Important class Is known as the poor whlto trash , and Iheso form Iho vast majority of the population. Of course , no ono belongs to Ihls element It Is always the other fellow , his neighbor across the street. Yet every Texan fears that ho Is thus classed , so absuics > ou thai he Is a gentleman. The signs by which ono may recognize Ihls class are similar lo Ihoso used by Stanley In describing the natives of Africa. Of course , they have not black skins , but no ono would over linow this , judging from their appearance. A practicing physician told mo that ho called on a woman of this class and after proscribing some medicine for her suggested that Bho should take n bath. "Oh Lord , " she said , "you can't 'sped mo to do dat. Doc. , 'causo I ain't took no bath slnco I was bo'n , " And the doctor believed.

Tlio Hennotl-Kosowatcr criminal libel case \vns called again In police court jcslerday iiftcrnnon and Judge Bcrka passed on tlio mo tion of the defense to dismiss. IIo overruled tlio motion , holding tlmt after examining tlio authorities on that point lie was constrained to believe that falsity ami mallco were to bo presumed from the mere publication of a defamatory article , and It would therefore remain for the defense to show Its justifica tion for the publication. The defense announced that It was ready to proceed at once , and tlio defendant , Edward - ward Rosewater , was called to the witness stand Ho tostldcd that ho was and Is the editor of The IJeo , and had been since It waa started Juno ID , 1871. IIo occupied that position the Gtli of last November. Ho had known the complaining witness , George A. Dennett , slnco shortly after the latter was nominated for sheriff In 1801. Witness then had con trol of the editorial management of The Doc , and supported Dennett through the columns of the paper and did what ho could to have htm elected. Ho said ho was the author of the alleged llbelous article , and wrota It him self. Regarding the charge of Incompctcncy , ho Buld ho first learned of that soon after Dennett assumed charge of the office. It waste to be supposed that It would take him some time to learn the ropes of the ofllce , but he kept William Coburn , on ex-sheriff of the county , there month after month and dis closed his own Inability to do the work Jail deliveries were reported at the editorial rooms of The Dee by the reporters of that paper , and were printed from tlmo to time as they occurred , as was also the story of the unwarranted release of a prisoner by the Jailer , who was a brother of the sheriff Notwithstanding these publications , the then sheriff did not call to offer any ex- p'anatlon or tot him o f right Leforo Iho com munity , although the columns of the paper were open for that purpose , as was always tlio case with any Indlvlduil who might ftcl that bo had been misrepresented or done an Injustice. GAMDLINO HOUSn AFFAIR. As to the charge that a prisoner named Henderson was taken to a gambling house by the jailer and left there for a while with out a guard whllo the jailer went away , al though subsequently the latter returned and removed the prisoner again to the county Jail , the witness said that this Information was brought to him by iparty who said ho was at the gambling house and saw the oc currence , and who claimed to know both Henderson and Jailer Dennett. The charges as to the relations of male prisoners with dissolute vvompn , both Insldo and out side the Jail , referred principally to Mosher. Many of these matters had been called to the attention of the public In printed articles long before the publication of the letter in question , and the -jvltness had also warned the republicans tli.it Dennett was not such a man as could , have the support of law- abiding citizens , and that the party would make a blunder If It nominated him. Stories of the sheriff's actions were being continually brought to the attention of the witness and the drlalls of some of them L were unfit for publication , and the same was true with reference , to Mosher. Deforo the latter was taken to. the county jail and whllo ho was still In the , custody of the mar shal ho called at the residence of the witness to request that nothing more bo said In the paper concerning him on account of his fam ily until ho was sentenced. The witness frequently heard that Moshor was enjoying the freedom of the city , and one gentleman , whoso \craclty the witness had no rea son ( o question , had told him that Moshor was making visits to assignation houses , and was maintaining a llason with one Nclllo Sayor , who was then stopping at the M' * ' ml hotel. It was also stated that she Dialled Moshor In jail , as a pretended relative , and remained there with him at night , and that ho was allowed to leave the jail to go and see her elsewhere. It was also stated to the witness that other prosti tutes were allowed to enter the jail for the purpose of visiting prisoners confined there. A great deal of pains had been taken to verify these reports that reached the office - fico In such numbers , and one man was found who stated that ho had himself gene with Mosher to a roadhouse whllo the lat ter was a prisoner. Others told of seeing Mosher at the theater and elsewhere , the elsewhere being generally the vicinity of lower Douglas street. DDVIM1ENT AT TUB JAIL. As to the charge- that the jail had been changed into a brothel and that an abortion was procured there with the knowledge of the matron , the witness said that a party told him of having requested to bo allowed to go to the jail to have Intercourse with a prisoner. This was the colored man who was said to have been mixed up In the abortion case , and the witness flatly accused him of It , and the fellow did not deny. It. Ho seemed to bo paraljvod by the accusa tion and would neither alllrm or deny the charge. Tlio witness said ho never saw Mrs. Den nett to his knowledge until she appeared on the witness stand In this case , neither had ho over heard anything of her reputation until after Dennett was elected. One report Implicating her came from a former om- plojo of the jail , who represented that an abortion had been procured there , and that Mrs. Dennett know of It. This Informant also gave the name of a prisoner who was said to have full knowledge of the case. The parties who furnished this Information had no reason to Ho about It , and , further more , the colored man Implicated had not denied It when the charge was made. Regarding the charge that Dennett had employed for his defense against the ac- cusatlons a leprous sheet and a couple of convicted criminals , tlio witness said ho was given to understand that Dennett had paid a party to print and circulate charges against him. This was common report , and Mr. Coburn , who was employed to oversea the business of the sheriff's ofllco , told him that ho ( Coburn ) , .had told Dennett that ho was making a mistake in following out this course In fiettlne this sheet to at tack the witness. Numbers of these papers had been taken fd the ofilco of the sheriff and circulated from there and through the court houso. , The charge that these defenders of liennp'tt were two criminals whom Dennett had , harbored referred to Keen and Mosher. , and the unconscionable thief referred levjt * as Mosher. Nearly all the matters covered by these charges had been printed Jr ? ' " two to six months before the publication of this letter , and the substance of the scandal Implicating Mosher , the Bayer woman.and , the sheriff and hla deputies was prlntea In the World-HeralJ In October , boforq''lho ' Dee had published It. Uonnett had thus"1 had ample tlmo to In- restlgato these maurs and vindicate him- naif had ho so desjrx . SOMC CHARGES ANSWERED. The witness Bald ho did not see Dennett during the campaign , but the paper that was defending Dennett charged that the witness - ness had sought to levy blackmail on him ind secure business from the sheriff's olllco , when as a matter of fact the witness had never In his life asked a favor of Dennett It had also been charged that the witness bad been promised money by John McShane and John A. Crolghton In the event that he secured the defeat of Donnott. Ho denied that ho had ever talked with McShane about the matter , and only once with Crolghton. when ho met the latter on the street , and It was then referred to only In the most casual way. The wltnesn denied that ao had ever received a cent for tlshtlng Dennett , and asserted that ha could not have been bought to atop the flKht , as ho believed that It was hla duty to the public to carry It on and force It to a finish , and ho was determined to lion , estly discharge that duty. It had also been charged that ho was making this fight on Dennett bccaufta the Utter vvns n. member of the American Protective association , hen- nett had called on him shortly after receiv ing the nomination the first tlmo , and the witness had then asked him whether or not ho was an A. 1' . A. Dennett replied that ho was and didn't care who know It , and the witness then told him that ho thought more of him ( Dennett ) because of his open avowal than ho did of some of the other 'nominees , as ho had reason to bcllovo that some of them had Hod regarding their membership In tlmt organisation. The wltncsa said ho was favorably Impressed with the appear ance of Dennett , who seemed to bo an hon est , hard working mechanic , and ho had supported him , as ho had also supported the other members of the ticket who were A P. A.'g. Ho had not supported Eller for office as he had good and sufficient reasons for declining to say much In that candidate's behalf. The witness said that ho had never en tertained any personal Ill-will toward Den nett or his wife , and the letter had boon published because ho believed It to bo his duty to warn the voters of the county against placing the sheriff's olllro In the hands of a man who was untrustworthy and who was violating Instead of enforcing the law. Ho had exercised all the diligence that It was possible for any editor to use In verlfilng the reports concerning Dennett that came to his notice Some of the re ports wore brought to him by the reporters employed In the office and others by per sons entirely outside , and all of them were heard long before the publication of this letter. As to threats of violence having been made against him , the witness said he hail been warned several times that parties wore lying In wall for him and would do him up , but ho had taken no special precautions on this account , as such things were liable to happen at any time , and It was Impossible for an Individual to bo bomb-proof. So far as the charges m.ido were concerned , ho had believed them when they were made , and he still believed tint they were trtio ON CROSS-EXAMINATION This concluded the direct examination , and the witness was taken In hind for cross , examination by the county attorney , whoso questions brought out this testimony. U had been charged by the Klgiro that this fight that was being waged by the wItness - ness against Dennett was Inspired by re sentment because not enough business was secured from the sheriff's otllce. The wit ness did not know how much business The Dee had received from there , but ho did know that ho had never asked for any , and If there had been any such request or talk It was not at his Instance. . The fact waa that after Dennett had been In ofllco for some time , people began to complain that he did not fill the bill ; then came the report that Dennett had been a sport and a prize fighter , and that ho had once fought a prize fight near Omaha These reports wont to show that Dennett had been associated with a disreputable class Prize fighting seemed to be a rather queer education for law officers , and the consensus of the Information received tended to degrade Dennett In the estimation of the witness. Some of this Information the wit ness had received from Mr. Coburn and some from Joe Miller , the present county Jailer. Coburn's continued presence In the sheriff's ofilco was regarded as ev Idence that the sheriff couldn't get along without him , al though a man's continued emplojmont was not to bo always so regarded. This was n conclusion In this case that the witness reached by Inference. The Information regarding the release of a prisoner from the county Jail by the jailer , who was a brother of the sheriff , the wit ness received from Mr. Hunter , the city editor of The Dee , who learned from the police court that the man was released with out an order from the Judge or mayor. It was because of this and similar stories that the witness became convinced that the Jail was not properly conducted. The fact that there were jail deliveries was not to bo re garded as a positive proof of Incompetency , but when they became so frequent and es pecially with such a good jail It did mean something. The witness did not send for Dennett and advise him what he had heard about the Jailer taking Henderson to the Diamond , as he thought it was the duty of Dennett to come to him if ho wanted to explain. Just as It was the duty of any officer charged with dereliction to see that his explanation or justification was presented to the public If charges against him had been made through the press. Jailer Miller had told the wit ness the Henderson story , and the witness had had reporters sent to sea Henderson to have the story confirmed or denied , but Henderson would neither afilrm or deny It , as he was unwilling to talk about the matter. PRIVILEGES ALLOWED MOSHER. The witness admitted that ho had sought to convoy the Impression that Moshor's derelictions whllo In the county Jail wore due to Dennett , and said that ho still main tained that such was the case , as the sheriff was responsible for the conduct of his prisoners. It was currently reported that Mosher was allowed the freedom of the Jail , ostensibly acting as bookkeeper , and went out fiequently with or without the jailer to get drinks at saloons In the neigh borhood ; that disreputable women visited him and ho wont out of the jail to visit assignation houses , either with or without a guard ; that Nellie Sajer was the name of the woman specially mentioned as being kept by Moshor and reported as viblUnir the jail at night In a cab to see him. Doth H. N. McGrow , of the Mercury , and John Moynllmn had furnished Information of this kind , and Coburn had said that Mosher was taken by Dennett to act as guard to assist In taking an Insane man to the hospital ; that the prisoner had recognized Moshor as a follow prisoner and cursed him. stating that whllo ho was wiling to bo under the guard of tin honest man ho would not submit to being guarded by a man who had robbed the widows and orphans of their all and stolen hundreds of thousands of dollars from the state ; It was stated that qulto a bcono was created , much to the em barrassment of Dennett , w ho had told the Rtory himself on getting back to his office. The same story had been told by a colored jailer then employed by Dennett. All these reports went to show the existence of a very bad state of affairs In connection with the management of the county jail. The general nature of nearly all the charges touched upon In this letter had been previ ously published , but some of the details had been withheld , as the witness said that ho did not want to go too much Into the Hastiness of the situation In print. LILAS PAGE'S CASE. The witness further testified that the abor tion case In connection with a white girl In the jail had to do with the colored man , Jesse Newman , who was questioned by the witness concerning the occurrence , U had been reported that Dennett was ono of tlio parties who assisted in breaking Into the jail In October , 181)1 ) , for the purpose of lynching the negro ravlalicr , Smith , and that his knowledge as a blacksmith was ex ercised In superintending the cutting of the iron and steel bars. There had bocon some feeling against Dennett on this account , and the witness said ho asked Newman on this occasion how It happened that this sentiment tiad changed , and then charged Erectly to his face that it was because of the relations that Newman hud been allowed to maintain with this girl after she had been taken to jail. This accusation was not denied by Newman. Nat Drown was present on this occasion and heard what was said. It had been brought to the attention of the witness that Newman was Intimate with the girl before she was sent to jail , and that this Intimacy was kept up whllo she was there. The witness mild ho heard the same story from reporters of The Doe , who had ro celved their Information from Mrs Cum- minus , the matron at the police station. Whllo this was a serious matter , coming as It did on top of all the other charges and a direct accusation of one of the alleged Implicated parties timing elicited no denial , the witness had thought there must bo some foundation for It. Further than this , U was corroborative of a statement made to the witness months Deforo by Miller , who said that Ed Keen : iad told him that an abortion hud been pro cured on one of the female prisoners In the lull with the advice of the matron , ami this later story of an abortion having been pro cured led the witness to credit It. The witness Bald ho understood the nutne of the white girl who was operated on In the jail was LI las Page. When asked why ho attributed to Dennett some connection with the rigaro and respon sibility for article * published In that sheet , the witness said ho had been charged with jelng Insane , and Bennett's Interest In It waa manifested by kin assistance In circula ting thn libel , and furthermore , County Treasurer Iroy had Informed him tlmt Den- nott Induced the republican central com mittee to pay $2,000 for n lot of those papers to bo spread around In his behalf , In uplto of the protest of some of the other candi dates. I1AKER INVESTIGATION A KAUCE. The World-Herald had published the Mosher scnndal before It was printed by The Dec , and had then printed District Attor ney Dakcr's whitewashing report of an al leged Investigation , and $160 had been paid for 3,000 extra copies of the Issue containing the report , as had been testified to by Editor Hitchcock before the police commis sion That vvhltcvvish report was not printed , however , until after this letter The wit ness said the Daker Investigation was a farce Dakcr had como to him and mild ho ( Dakcr ) had Instructions from the do- pnrtmont at Washington to look Into the matter , and had asked for the names of the witness' Informants , which wore given. Daker , however , did not talk to the right people , and the statements that ho had se cured did not ngroo with those made to the witness Dakor had mid ho didn't think there was much to the Moslu > r matter , but the witness didn't lay any stress on that Investigation , as ho regarded It from the outset as a humbug and a fraud. Dennott hud circulated scores of papers out of his ofllce making attacks on the witness , and did , therefore , porpotiatu the assaults charged. The witness said that George D Strjkcr was ono of the parties who had told him that Dennett would do him up , and Eovoral parties had warned him that he would be assassin ated Such warnings had como from Prank Kaspar and G W Llnlnger Kaspir had said that ho had definite knowledge In this particular , and had warned the witness to arm himself. The witness was excused from the stand , and Police Scrgeint Whaleii was called to tostlfy regarding the conviction of the man Loonar , for carrying concealed weapons , and his subsequent release by Jailer Dennett without the authority of an order from the mayor or police Judge. CITY EDITOH'S TESTIMONY. W II Hunter , city editor of The Dee , was the lust witness called In the afternoon IIo said his duties were to have charge of the city work on the paper and direct the work of the reporters. Ho Know that The Dee had supported Dennett In his first campaign and had been friendly with him up to omo- Ihlng llko n jcar ago , when reports began to como In regarding the conduct of the ofilco and the management of the county jail. Noth ing had been printed until verified , and the columns of the paper were open for denial or reasonable roll action , as had always been the case It had been a matter of general knowledge In The Dee ofilco that the work of the sheriff's ofllco was done by a substitute ; that a prisoner had been released from jail before his tlmo was up without authority , and that jail deliveries were frequently occurring through the modlum of coal holes and otherwise The Information regarding the Moshor scandal had been re ceived from several parties , among whom were Mojnlhan , JlcGrow and cmplojus nt the Midland hotel , while several affidavits had been secured from parties who had knowledge of the matters charged. Mojnl- han had said that he had taken Mosher from jail without a guard and gene to Council Bluffs to a rondhnuso , where they spent the night , that ho had also gene with Moshcr to the theater , and had made assignations for him to spun 1 the night with women. One place where Moshor was said to have made a visit waste to an assignation house at Twentieth and Paul streets , and a chambermaid , named Schnchlerwlnd , at the Midland hotel , had told of seeing Mosher and the Sajer woman In bed together at that place. Other em ployes of the hotel had told of frequent telephone calls for the Sa > er woman. These calls were from telephone 189 , which was the county jail Cabs had called on her very often , and taken her to Jail. These Were a few of the stories that were currently rehearsed on the streets In connection with Mosher while ho was sup posed to bo an liunite of the county Jail The stories of abortion and night visits to the jail had been Investigated at the ex pense of a great deal of tlmo by members of the reportorlal staff and by outsiders whoso services were also secured. On cross-examination thewltnoss told of the reports of threats against the person and life of Mr. Rosewater and said that on at least two occasions police officers had been sent to The Dee building to guard against any such attempt. These stories were cur rent on the street and the witness hid been repeatedly met with Inquiries as to threatened assault and assassination. Hn testified as to the statements made to him by conductors on the Ilanscom park line , who had told him of hauling the prisoner Henderson and Jailer Dennett or Jailer Ernest out to Park avenue , when the officers were taking the prisoner out to see his wife The witness als.o testified concerning affi davits touching matters affecting the sheriff and lil-s conduct of his office , and mentioned the names of parties who had talked with lilm of the danger of assault or had made inquiries concerning It. The hearing continued until after 5 o'clock , and the case was then continued until Mon day afternoon at 2 30 o'clock. o UK ir.m CliceltH Cashed for n ClilniRo Sinn round to Hit rrnmliilrnt.
