Difficulty in Reaching Its Verdict Has

At midnight last night , when It retired for
the night , the Jury In the cuso against the
Hartley bondsmen appeared to be no nearer
a verdict than when the case was put Into
their hands on Friday afternoon. At least ,
It gave not the slightest Intimation that It
had reached the , end of Its deliberations , de
spite that It had been under lock and key
for overthirtyone hours.
It Is Impossible to tell how the twelve
men Etnjiil. Not even the bailiffs In charge
arc allowed to question them on this mat
ter. No Indication can float out of the room
In which they arc confined , since the walls
are too thick. They arc locked up In the
court room of Judge Powell. The latter
found occasion to listen to some legal mat
ters jcsterday afternoon , and ho disposed ot
them In the corridor outside. Judge Powell
himself has no Idea of the situation , for In
answer to several Inquiries of the Jury as
to whether It wished to confer with him , ho
was told that It did not.
Only ono straw was furnished to Indicate
which way the wind Is blowing and that
throws little light on the matter. A tally
sheet picked up on the floor of the Jury
room while the Jurors were out to dinner
ga\o the following Information : "Yes , 1 ;
no , 10. " This would seem to Indicate that
the jury stands 10 to 2 , or 11 to 1 on some
question , but what that question Is It Is Im
possible to say. This Is considered hardly
likely to refer to the main verdict , Inas
much as under Judge Powell's clear Instruc
tion the Jury had little 'else to do than
figure out the amount of the verdict that waste
to bo returned for the state" It Is con
sidered possible that the stumbling block Is
the question of the sanity or Insanity of
Mary Fitzgerald.
The Jury has not been shirking Its duty.
The bailiff has had occasion to enter the
room several times , and he has always
found the twelve men In discussion or taking
a ballot. They commenced to work im
mediately after supper on Friday night and
kept It up until midnight. They arose early
jcsterday morning and , except for the time
they wcro taken out for their meals , de
liberated until midnight last night. The men
arc close-mouthed and said nothing In the
presence of the bailiffs to Indicate how they
stand. In a joking way some have said they
will decide some time next week , but others
have also stated that they would bo home for
dinner today. At night the men sleep upon
the floor or the chairs aud benches In the
court room.
Judge Powell was at the court house until
10 o'clock last night In the hojic that a ver
dict would be returned , lie ; will be down at
an earlj hour this morning , Ho stated lost
night that he would keep the Jury In until
Monday morning , at least. In view of the
Importance ot the case and the expense In
volved In the trial. '

At the request ot Assistant County Attor
ney Winters the case against ; John Powers ,
formerly of Fullertori."ln 'which ho was
charged ' "niUi living unlawfully with Mrs.
W. S. Iloss , was dismissed by Police Judge
Gordon yesterday afternoon. These people
deserted their respective families ut Fullerton -
ton and eloped , coming to Omaha. Powers
anil the woman were both In court , as were
also Mr. Ross , who had como from Fullerton -
ton with his attorney to prosecute Powers ,
and several people as witnesses with whom
the couple bad boarded as husband and wife
under different names.
ness -was more anxious to settle his dlder-
onces with Powers on account ot his chil
dren than he was to prosecute , In the event
that his wife would return to him and be
dutiful In the future. He told Mr. Winters
his deslro and that officer set about to patch
the trouble up. Ho finally succeeded In ef
fecting a settlement , which was that both
Mrs. Ross and Powers were to return to
their respective families and do by them as
they should. 'He ' gave to Judge Gordon as
his reason for asking that the case be dis
missed that ho thought It would bo for the
best interests of society. Ho said that If
Powers 'was prosecuted two families would
bo broken up , whereas It the cafe was dis
missed both the defendant and the woman
had promised to return < o their families and
do right by them. Judge Gordon discharged
Powers and then Mr. Winters made the
further explanation that In the event ot his
discharge Powers had agreed to sign a writ
ten pledge that In the future ) he would not
Interfere with the domestic affairs of Ross
This agreement Powers afterwards signed
and Rosa took his truant wlfo away with
him , while Powers left with the promise that
ho would return to his family iu Lincoln ,
where It removed from Fullerton after ho
ran away with the Ross woman.

Alarmed over the throats of certain Sarpy
county property owners to commence suit ! )
for damages ( or the Mud creek nuisance. It
Is understood that one property holder ,
Charles Chandler , has engaged attorneys
and the papers arc lion In course ot prepara
tion. Some ot the other residents oJ that
locality arc figuring on following suit , but
up to yesterday no steps had been taken. In
speaking about the matter one prominent
city ofllclal stated that the suits would cause
the city no uneasiness , as It could bo easily
proved In court that the Authorities \vero
not to blarnc. It Is further claimed tbat the
city council has taken steps at different
times to abate the nuisance. This authority
asserted that In order to recover damages
suit should bo commenced against Swift and
Company or the stock yards company. The
last time an examination was made by n
committee of the council the. trouble was
located at the Swift plant and a report ot
that nature was made. The Swift people
agreed to connect their glue factory with the
sanitary sewer and this must liavo been
done for the complaints censed for a time.
It Is further asserted that the city cannot
bo compelled to lay a sc\\cr It It Is not
thought advisable , neither can the city be
held for damages In case n sewer Is not
laid. These suits , If brought , will bo de
fended by the city and the numerous efforts
made to abate ) this nuisance will be shown.
In the face of this kind of a showing It Is
not thought that damages will bo allowed.

It Is thought that the confidence men who
reaped a harvest hero last bummer have re
turned , as two cases of their work have
been reported to the police within the last
twenty-four hours. Hoth victims were
stockmen and as they feared publicity thej
refused to file complaints In police court
The old "cactus" cloth game was worked
In both cases , ono cattleman parting with
J25 and the other wltn $ D. In both cases the
sharpers left for Omaha as soon ns they had
gained possession of their victim's money.
This game , along with several others , was
worked every day for awhllo last summer
until the complaints became so numerous
that Mayor Ensor employed an outslilo detect
ive to como here as a granger and be
worked In order to get onto the game. When
the major had obtained the names of these
In the game and ascertained where the vic
tims wcro taken to bo fleeced , ho headed a
detachment of police ono afternoon and
raided the headquarters of the gang. Two
of the confidence men were tried In police
court and held to the district court for
further examination , and for a long time no
more complaints were heard. The police
have a description of the two men who are
supposed to bo working at the old game
again and will arrest them on sight.
