I i C i. Hi- Dr. Brown has now bcf n , formally charged with the murder of Mand ) } $ by Assistant County Attorney Day. The information was read In police court shoitly before noon yes terday , ami contains two counts. The first count alleges murder with mullce and In stant death , Count No. S alleges that Ilrown struck Maud Rubcl on the head and that she lived four hours utter the blow was struck. When Judge Berka had finished reading the complaint Brown said In a steady , clear voice , "Not guilty. " The Judge then asked , "When wIH , you bo ready for trial ? " " \Vo arc ready now , your honor , " an swered the defendant's attorney. Attorney Day , representing the state , said he could not be ready before Saturday and so the- case was set for hearing at 10 a. m. on that day. Brown was taken to the county Jail Immediately after bclhg arraigned. From the filing of the Information It Is not to be concluded that Ilrown is supposed to be the principal in the commission of the crime. It does not signify that the state ex pects to prove that he had a connection with It more or less criminal. Rvldcnco Implicating Sam Payne seems to be accumulating and the police arc now dili gently searching for him. While they will not say where It came from , they hint that Information has been received that Sam Payne was seen nt the dance given at a vacant building under the Sixteenth street viaduct a week ago Sunday night. It was learned at that time that one while girl , described as Maud llubelas present at this dance , and that she \\a seen to fall and strike her head and was carried away by some of the colored men. PAYNE AND THE RINGS. Another very Important fact was brought to light yesterday by the statements of a Mrs. Jackson , a colored woman , residing near the Eleventh street viaduct. Shu has long known Payne and his family , and Payne has spent considerable time at her house. Mrs. Jackion said that last Tuejday he went there and showed her a small gold ring , and told her , In n loklng manner , that she could not guess , for another "can" of beer , where the ring came from or how he got It. Payne then remarked : "You women might get Jealous It you knew where It came from , and my wife might think 1 was too familiar with other women. " This ring Is one of those found at Mrs. Payne's hou e on Ninth street and Identified by Mr. and Mrs. llubel as be longing to their daughter , quarters ysterfiy again In the hope that she would tell when she last saw Payne , but she would not say anything. Miss Clark has a brother running an elevator In the Barker block. He was seen yesterday , but said ho had not seen Payne for a. couple of months , and never knew him personally. It was also learned that Payne had been a frequenter of the danpc.1 ? given at this hall under the Sixteenth street viaduct , usually In company with a negress. The police think they know who sjie Is ! LOOKING FOR THE EARRINGS. The police say Miss Clark can tell where the earrings the Rubel > glrl wore are. They arc plain gold and very small. Miss Clark resides near Mrs. Johnson. There has been found a colored woman , whose name the police refuse to divulge , who saw the transaction between Mrs. Payne and her husband when the latter gave her the rings and slippers. A dispatch was received from Plattsmouth that a colored man who answered Payne's description was under arrest there. Ho was brought up to South Omaha and an ofllcer sent to Identify him. Hg was not Payne. About three weeks ago Miss Rubcl went to an attorney's office and said she wanted to begin proceedings against a prominent grocer ot the city for seduction. She would not give the name of the party , saying she could wait a few days and see If he would make a settlement. The attorney said ho would have nothing to do with the case , as she was under age. In the forenoon a man called at the Jail and showed the officer In charge a card which Brown had given him a few days be fore his arrest. It was rather suggestive and was Intended to bo an advertisement for the hotel at G10 > , South Tenth street that Brown was Interested In. When Brown handed this man the card he remarked that two nice women from South Omaha fre quented the "hotel" and would entertain visitors. o AVmit tim Democrat Kemotvil. BELLEVUE , Neb. , Jtme G.
