A eire'lal Rewilon of the city council
tvao cillttl yesterday afternoon to consider the
application of the Union Pacific lleillroad
company for a permit to bullJ a temporary
passenger station nt Tenth and Leaven-
worth BtrcotB , as announced by The Boo the
other day. As the building li merely de
signed ad a iraUcshlft until arrangements
far the erection of a more substantial depot
crtn bo perfected It will bo necessary to
Iiavo a spocljil pet mil by resolution of the
ineivoT and council. Chief Engineer J. D
Ilcrry of tlio Union 1'arlfle was at the city
hall this morning nud prese iteil the matter
to Cllv nnglnoor Rosenator and , 01 the
corn any la anxious * in begin work nt tnce ,
the call for the opoclal meeilni ; was Im-
mndlitely Issued
There vvero only flvo members present and
these uxpre'wil themselves as opposed to
the leaoliitlon unless some dcflnlto
insurance was iccclvcd In regard to the
It'iigth of tlmo that the company expcctel to
use HIP trmpoiary bulldlr.e Consequently
the matter was lefcrred to the committee
on public propel ty and oulldlngs for In-
> e tlgitlon.
Thcio was a considerable stir In local rail
way circles when the action of the Union
Pacific was Irained It was taken by rall-
roaduu ns an Indication that the new man
agement of the Union I'aclllc will lm\e noth
ing to do with the Burlington's now passen
ger station and as a certain sign that the
rivalry between the two great western rail
roads IB to bu more keen that it has ever
lieen In the pnsl.
The terminal question not only Involves the
Union Pacific- and the Burlington roads , but
also the Milwaukee , the Rock Island and the
Northwestern lines The three latter lints
are dependent upon the Union Pacific for
their entrance Into Omaha and for adequate
terminal facilities It la the belief of the
best pasted lallroad men In Omaha that
tht'31' thieo roads will go Into the Union Pa
cific's tcmpoiary depot This course will
mean that the Burlington will occupy Its
new passenger station at Tenth and Mason
streets on or about April 15 , and that the
other lines now entering the Union depot
sheds will KO with the Union Pacific Into a
temporary frame structure , just north of the
Union Pacific tracks at about Tenth and
Mart } stteets
The time set by the Burlington for re
ceding applications from othci ralkoads for
npace In the Burlington depot will expire on
Mond'iy at mlilnliht ; Ncne of the Hues ! ia\o
notified the Burlington that they will cuter
the new structure and It Is conceded to bo
verj Improbable that any of them will. It
can be stated autliorltatl\cly that Itio Burling
ton will make no opposition to such action bj
thecouncil. . There seems to bo but ono
chance that some of the Chicago lines will
make application to the Burlington to onto"
Its new station This event may occur If
the Union Pacific's temporary frame fitruc-
tutc shall not prove to be adequate to handle
the passenger business during the coming ex-
pwltlon , While thu Northwestern will In
all piobablllty never kavo the Union Pacific
oti ll'io depot proposition , It Is not at all
Improbable that the Rock Isla.id or 'ho Mil
waukee might make such a movo.
Work on the Union Pacific's temporary
depot will be begun on Monday morning at
7 o'clock If the city council grants the neces-
sirypermlssiai , The plarn nre nil complete :
and \ia\c \ been duly Inspected by the city
cxnglncer. Arrangements for building ma
terial lm\o been niadn and every effort will
bo put forth to finish the proposed building
by the time set for the opetv'HR of the ex
position gates The building will bo of
frame and brick and Its dimensions will be
filmllar to those of the Burlington's now sta
tion There Is but little doubt but that the
Umlon Pacific can complete such a structure
an has been designed in tlmo for the exposi
tion With the open weather that will In all
probability bo enjojed during most of the
epiing the work con bo pushed along rapidly
How long the utructure will last after
the clcfio of the exposition Is a question
much discussed In local railway circles. It
Is conceded that the character of the build
ing will enable the municipal authorities to
condemn It any time after It has served
Us purpose. While the building will bo
commodious , and even attractive. It will
not be suitable for a passenger station of j
the main line In a metropolitan city , and ]
is not Intended to bo a permanent affair.
Horace O. Hurt , president of the Union
Pacific railroad , said to The Bee that ho- had
no informatlrn whatever to gl\o out en the

syrups , boap , vlne'gar and a variety of othe
minor articles.
In speaking of the advantages of recclvln
bids hero Secretary Utt says : "In consider
Ing this question It should be borne In mint
that oil Indian agencies where a larg
amount of supplies are furnished are west o
the Missouri river , and the largest con
tmnicrs are In the northwest part of th
United States and reached by roads tunnln
direct from Omaha , and that In buying good
based on Omaha , as compared with Chlcag
or New York , the government will save tlm
In transit and freight charges that wouU
accrue between those cities and the Mis
sourl river. The basis of making rates t
points In territory west of Omaha Is tli
Missouri river. That Is to say , the rate o
merchandise- from New York 01 Chicago t
railway points In Nebraska , Wyoming , Soul !
Dakota , Colorado and Utah is the rates fron
those points to Omaha , plus the rates fron
Omaha west This gives this city a market
advantage In expediting shipments and ou

The arguments In the Droatch-Moores caoc
Iiavo boon concluded. Attorney Boucher , for
Mr. Moores , occupied the early part of the
forenoon aud was followed by John C.
Wharton , who finished during the afternoon
The arguments vvero evidently a greater at
traction thaii the testimony , as J.ho county
court room was well filled with , spectators.
Mr. Boucher's argument largely consisted
of a presentation of authorities In support
of the contentions pievlously suggested. Ha
quoted voluminously from recent decisions
bearing on the conduct of public olllclals
and especially those In which the eiueatlcu
of intent vvaa considered. Ho produced over
whelming authorities In support of the propo
sition tfiat coirupt motives were essential
to constitute an embezzlement and must be
shown to warrant the conviction of the ac
cused. Ho then briefly reviewed the conduct
of Mr , Moores from the times when he occu
pied the office of deck of the district court
to show that ho had at all times acted In
perfect good faith ana was ready to pa\
over any amount that might be adjudged a. °
duo to the county or school hoard as soon eia
the legal [ jue-stiona Involved were adjudicated
Mr Wharton touched in beginning en the
political phase of the persecution to which
Mayor Mcorcs was subjected nt the hands
of his political enemies. H said that this
was the aaddost funeral that lie had over
attended. The corpse had been dead many
months , but It was still stalking through
the land , clothed in the habiliments of the
tomb , but raising a great hue and cry of
lustlco and ilghteouriiiefs and truth that
mist prevail. It has been customary In
olden times to hire mourners lu order to give
dignity to the obsequies. So In this
case , after the republican party had en
veloped W. J. Droatch with the grave clothes
10 had hired chief mourjicre , who were ex
acted to pipe and wall to show their sorrow
it his demise , Hedfleld had joined this
land and posed as , one of the chief buglers
Ho had declared himself the only honest
nan In the icpubllcim party and as too geode
o associate with it longer. Ho had chosen
o go before the people and submit his case
o their \erdlct , They decided by over 3,000
najorlty that ho had been weighed In the
islanco and found wanting. They had told
ilm that ho had hotter wrap himself In the
a mo uhroml that covered Ilioatch and with
ilm sleep silently thereafter.
Thcflo lilred mourners had voiced their
amentatlons on every stump during the
ampalgn , They had inado the Issue that
faille E , Moores was an embezzler and do-
aulter and that ho was unfit to hold the
olllco of mayor of Omaha. But the people of
Omaha had in warned the Insincerity of the
ireienslons of Hioatch , Hedfleld , Ruanu and
he rest of his gaiiK. They had expressed
udgment by Kielr ballots and It was nnu
leforo tliId court to pronounce- the verdict
'Ills political clique had hounded Frank I- .
looreti from the time when he was a can
didate for a third time for the olllco of cleric
of the district court. Before ho was nom-
nated for mayor the people had had a > ear
a which to Investigate the charges that
ad been made agjUist blm end to arrive at
Just conclusion , They had spoken end now
\licit was the result ? It was to bo expected
hat a man who had not received u single
oto fur the olllco of mayor would take hU
uo and decide that the people did not want
ilm longer. But not so with Ilroatcli , Ho
imposed to continue- rule over the people
f Omaha , when in the great metropolitan
ity of 143,000 Inhabitants tiot ono man ,
utnan or child dad voted for him , The
( tire to serve one's fellow men was to be
dmlred , but the cnmo could not bo said of
lie spurious patriotism which was animated
ly the deslro for fllthy lucre and revenge
This wai the situation that was before the
: ourt. One man had been elected major by
Uo suffragca of tbo people. The other bad
declared that although he , bad not received
a single vote he proposed to remain in office
and show the people that < ho was still bosa.
By what right did this political carpet bag
ger , who had been repudiated by tbo conven-
tlcn and the people , etill nroposo to rule ?
Continuing , Mr. Wharton emphasized the
fact that In acting on questions where the
title to offlco was Involved the courts hai
uniformly endeavored to construe the law
favorably to the execution of the expressed
will of the people. The same duty de-
voUed on the court in this case. Ho thei
declared that the only question of law ant
fact Involved was whether Mr. Moores had
Intentionally , maliciously and corruptly em
bezzled $1,318 83 of the funds that came Into
his possession as clerk of the district court
Ho proceeded to review the facts at length
to show that Mr. Broatch had absolutely
failed to establish this contention , and his
argument was still in progress when the
noon recess was declared.
Frank Ransom made the closing nrgumenl
for Mr. Broatch yesterday afternoon. He
devoted mojt of his time to an effort tc
SHOW that the fact that Mayor Moares hat
not paid ever all the amounts In contio\crsy
before ho left the offlco of district com I
clerk was sufficient evidence of an intention
to defraud the county.

Little 5-year-old Earl Montgomery , living
at Twentieth and Ohio streets , Jiiet with
a painful accident yesterday. The little fe !
low was playing on Corby , near Nineteenth
and in running to the opposite oldo of the
street went directly ki front of a horse
ilrhen by Mrs. Cannon. She instantly tried
to rein up the animal , but was not nblo
to do so before the horse struck the boy
and knocked him down , trampling upon him
The child waa severely bruised about the
body and sustained a scalp wound that re
quired thirteen stitches to close.
Llttlo Earl was carried homo by some
neighbor ho > s and a surgeon called , Last

Ilctnriin a Verdict of Murilpr In tin-
bet'onil IH'Krcc for Killing-
Dun TlotloniUH
I.iiNt June. .
If the verdict of the jury remains un
disturbed , August Kas.tner will certainly
spend ten years of his life w-lthln the walls
of the penitentiary , with a possibility that
he may remain there EO long as he lives , the
length of sentence depending wholly upon
what Judge Slabaugh does In the premises
After a trial covering nineteen days the
case of the State against August Kastncr ,
charged with the murder of Officer Dan
Tlcdcman'at Nelson's saloon , Thirtieth and
Spaiildlng- streets , on the early morning ot
June 9 , 1897 , was submitted to the Jury at
about C o'clock Friday night. The twelves men
were at oiice taken out to supper and upon
their return , after electing Thomas Bat-
terton foreman and reading the Instructions
of the court , they took a vote , with the re
sult , It is said , that eleven of the men voted
for murder lu the first dcgrcis and the re
maining Juror voting for acquittal. After
this vote was taken , the case and the
evidence were reviewed and another vote was
taken , with the same result as the first.
This ccudltioa relative-to the stand'nB of the
lury continued until 1 o clo K je.to day mo-li-
Ing , when the lone Juror who stood out for
acquittal Informed his associates that If
they would vote for murder In the sec6nd
degree , ho would do the same , After the
proposition had been discussed for some time ,
another ballot was taken , resulting a unani
mous vote for conviction of murder In the
second degree. Immediately after signing
the verdict , the Jurors retired upon the
benches of the big court room where they
were confined and slept until morning
when they announced to the bailiffs that
they had agreed.
uncisiviNG THE vnnmcT.
After the jurors In the Kastncr case had
returned from their morning meal Judge Sla-
Ijaugh and the attorneys for the prouecutlon
were notified , and at 9 o'clock they all re
ported at the court house. Notwithstanding
the early hour a largo crowd was present
when the prisoner was brought In , followed
by his old father and bin alstere , who wore
accompanied by some neighbors There was
lonsldciablo speculation on the verdict , many
believing that It waa one of acquittal This
jcllef was wholly duo to the fact that the
state had failed to bring homo to the de-
'cnilant positive pioof of the commission cf
: he crime , and also for the reason that It
was pretty generally bolloved that the do-
'ense had established an alllil.
As soon as court convened the verdict
ivas passed up to Deputy Clerk Green of the
district court , and by him road. Hardly
"iad ho finished the last word convevlng the
Information that the jury had found August
ifastnor guilty when Mra , Kastner became
i > ntorlcal The daughter and the Immedi
ate friends of the family hurst Into tears
and mcaned and sobbed. The bailiff was
ordered to restore order and August Kastner
was led away to the county jail , followed
> y his relatives and friends , who only turned
jack when they reached the doors that were
? arrcd against them.
Whllo August Kastncr nhowed some Inter-
cat In the proceedings , ho was ono of the
coolest persons about the court house , ap-
urently not realising what had happened
If ho did realize , to an observer It looked
na though ho did not cart ) , as ho did not
aho\v thu least sign of ur.otloa or feeling.
On a conviction for murder In the second
degree ; , the penalty ls imprisonment for not
csj than ten yearn , or It may be for life ,
the length of the term being dUcrcitlonary
with the ) Judge , The attorney for the Mate
and those for the defense are equally sur-
irlsed. The former did not anticipate any-
hlng better than manslaughter , wlillo
thoou for the defense wore juft aa positive
of acquittal.
When August Kastner will go to the pcnl-
entlary U a question tint no one can
answer at this time. The attorncya for the
dcfensw will move for a now trial , and
after argument , if this Is denied , they say
that they will appeal to the supreme court ,
uniting a suspension ot sentence during the
pendency ot the hearing. If the appeal is
taken It Is likely that it will bo &orae
months before the case can bo heard and
finally passed , upon.
The conviction of August Kastner Rives
County Attorney Baldrlgo and Acslstant
County Attorney Jeffiles considerable hope
ot convicting Joseph and Louis Kastnur ,
who , with August , were Jointly Indicted for
Uio minder of Officer Tledeman. They will
place the other pitsoncra on trial at tli la
term of court and \v 111 offer substantially the
eamo ovldeuco against them. While they
contend that August Kaatnor was the man
who fired the shot that resulted In the death
of the officer , they hold that the father ,
Jtxserd , and the brother , Louis , were present
and aided and abetted in the commission of
the crime , which legally makes them equally
