VICTIM DOES NOT CARE TO PROSECUTE .11 nn AVIio r.nxt IIU Wenl h Sn.lilriilj liPiiti's ( lu > Cll > , 'Ilium I'ri-tcitt- " " ' Slut * * friiin TnU- Ida Mitchell , allaa Idn Trucsdatc , tlio negrcss Indicted on the charge of robbing Jake Oalbralth , a whlto man , of $116 $ , was released from ctibtody yesteiday , the case having been dismissed by County Attorney Kllpack. The reason R\CII | for the dls- | mls'\l ! Is that the evidence to sustain the Indictment was lacking. It Is understood that the prosecuting witness has left the city and that thcro nro no prospects of his returning licre , at least In thu near future. The escape of this notorious negress from suffering the penalty of her offense Is said to bo Indirectly duo to the fact that the city authorities permit thu gambling houses to * run wide open. The attorney for the Truesdalo woman saw In this n loophole whereby his client could escape conviction and serving n term In the penitentiary and was not slow to nvall himself of It. The day following the arrest of his client tin filed nn Information against flalbralth for Rambling and , although no warrant was ever lasuod , the complaint was held ns a club o\er the head of the prosecuting witness. 11 was with some dllllculty that Galbialth c niilit bo Induced to appear before the grand lury , but ho finally did so. No stops , how- ver , were taken by the authorities to bind I in over as n witness anil ns soon as he ( cured the return of bis money ho left the Ity , taking his family with him. His sud- i en departure was duo not only to the fact hat Ida Trucsdnle's attorney threatened : Im with arrest as a gambler , but also threatened that If the case were pushed igalnst the woman ho would have every gambling house In the city closed , whether Mayor Jennings or Chief of Police Blxby liked It or not. Under those circumstances it Is said that the city authoiltlus are not grieving very deeply at the disappearance f Galbraith and the dropping of the case. At the lime the woman was arrested In "Imalia " $90 of the money stolen from Gal braith was found In her possession and later $ 2.no was recovered from a negro porter ter In this city , to whom she had given It. The day following her arrest she signed an irder directing that tlio money be turned \cr to Chief Blxby , and In this order she admitted that the money was the property > f Galbraith. This admission , It was be lieved at the time , would ha\c been fiiif- flclont to have convicted the woman and bent her to the penitentiary. The disposi tion of this money by the police ga\e rise to a number of rumors more or less reflect ing on the department. Yesterday , when he learned lliat the case had been dismissed and the woman released , Chief Blxby ex hibited a second order from the negress , au thorizing the money to be turned 01 cr to Galbraith and also a receipt from Galbraith for It. The chief also exhibited a com munication from County Attorney Kllpack stating that the money would not be re quired ns evidence In the case. The money was turned over to Galbraith by Chief Blxby on February 23. OlUer Cornell , Indicted on the charge of conspiring to defraud Henry Funk of Glen- wood out of $ ! > , was released from the county jail jesturday , the case against him in the district court having been dismissed by tlio county attorney. Mr. Kllpack was of the opinion that the evidence la the case was not sulllclent to ensure a conviction. The three capes against George G. Bell , on the charge of embezzlement , were at the re quest of the defendant continued until next term. Bell was Indicted in1 January , 1S9S , but his trial has been continued at each successive term of court since Ho was for mer ! ) In the commission business on South. Main street and ls > charged with embe/zllng the proceeds of two carloads of potatoes consigned to him 'to sell on cunmlsslou by the linn of Owens & Perry of Aberdeen , S. D , and of a consignment of grapes en trusted to him by J. J. Cook of this city. He Is out on ball In the sum of $700 In cadi case Considerable dlfUculty was experienced In securing n Jury for the second trlar of John Lawrence and U. B. Tracy and It was nearly 11 o'clock yesterday morning before a Jury was Impaneled and not until after four spe cial venlrffl had been Issued. The trial wtm not completed when court adjourned.
