LINCOLN, No .-(Speclal.)-The Bible 1U not be rend In the school of district Mo. 21 In Gage county, and neither will the pupils mingle their volcea In singing the good old songs from the Gospel Hymn or from the Pentecostal Hymn book, as has been their wont, for the cleric of the su preme court today mailed to the directors of the achool district a copy of a peremp tory writ of mandamus to compel the teacher to cut out all such. This Is In con formity with an opinion handed down by the court soma months ago, which during the recent Judicial campaign became state history, but which the directors down In Oage county refused to respect or abide by. Borne - time ago I)anlel Freeman, who brought the original action, came again to the supreme court in a brief and aaked for a writ of mandamus to compel the teacher to desist. This waa granted, and to make aure that It la right that it should be fol lowed the clerk also sent to the school board a copy of the opinion, the syllabus Jid the writ. The latter follows: " Whereas, In an action pending In the su preme court of the state of Nebraska, wherein the state of Nebraska ex rel Daniel Freeman, was plaintiff In error, and John Bcheve, Henry Ij. Odell unil Matilda Col lett, aa members of the district board of school district No. 21 In the county of Oace and state of Nebratika, were defendants In error, Judgment was duly rendered by aid -court at the September, 1SK2, term thereof on the 8lh day of October, 1902, In the words and figures following, to-wlt: "Thla cause came on to be heard, was taken up and argued by counsel, on con sideration whereof the court rinds there Is error apparent on the record In the pro ceedings and Judgment of the district court.

Now, therefore, we command you. Im mediately upon the- receipt of this writ, that you cause and require the teacher employed by you to teach the school in aid district No. 21 in said Oage county. Nebraska, to discontinue the practice and refrain from engaging In exereclses con sisting of reading passages from the Bible to the pupils In said school, and singing religious hymns; In said school from the book called 'Gospel Hymns" and from the book called the "Pentecostal Hymn Book" and the offering of prayer to the Dlety In said school during school hours; and that this writ and the commands thereof be Interpreted In the light of an opinion filed In said cause on October 10, 1902, as stated In the syllabus of said opinion, a certified copy -whereof is attached hereto and made a part hereof, and a subsequent opinion filed by the court In said cause on January 21, 1903, a certified copy whereof Is at tached hereto and made a part hereof. And that you return this writ on or before the iWth day of December, 1903, with your certificate of having done as you are herein commanded. Hereof fall not under the penaity of the law. No Heveaae Uir Decision. Whether the revenue law will stand the test of the supreme court commissioners ' la still unknown to the outside world. It ma stated yesterday that the opinion Would , surely be handed to the clerk of the supreme court today, and would then be ready for the public. But It waa not. It will come down tomorrow, however, without fall. It Is stated. Judge Duffle has tbe opinion, and has notified the clerk of the court that he will arrive In IJncoln at U o'olock tomorrow morning, and that he Will bring with him the opinion. The de lay In handing It down has only served to oaks the Interest more intense and specu lation more rife. In the meantime another law enacted by the late legislature has gone glimmering In the district court of Lancaster county. tThla U the law compelling the mayor of XJncola to appoint a plumbing Inspector. Tbe mayor refused, and an applicant for tbe plijce, who bad been Indorsed by the Central Labor union, brought mandamus proceedings to compel him to appoint. The result was that Judge Holmes held today that the law was unconstitutional, being contrary to that'sectlon of the con stitution which says that no bill shall con tain more than one subject, and the same . shall be clearly expressed In the title. Call for Dank Statement. Secretary Royce of the Banking board has Issued a call for a statement' of the con dition of state and savings banks at the plga of business on November 17. And in "iue meantime the action of the Insurance eompanlea In threatening to refuse to In Sure banks against burglaries in the small towns, a member of the Banking board be lieves, will result In the putting In of burglar alarms, and that will be all. It will not drive any bank out of business, this member thought, because they will be able to get tbe Insurance If the banks are properly protected with the right kind Ot alarms or burglar-proof safes. Barred . Room for Mans, Superintendent Johnson of the Feeble Minded Institute at Beatrice waa here this tornlng to see Governor Mickey, to dis cuss with him what Is to be done with an Inmate named Mason, who persists la In sisting that he Is Insane, and acting that tray, though the Insanity board of that county declared him sane, and refused to CARTERS rilTTLE IVER 1 L.

After conferring with the attorney genera, t was decided that Dr. Johnson construct a special cell, with steel bars on the windows. In which to keep Mason. The letter's last escapade happened a few days ago, when he escaped from bis room minus his clothing and went to the court house yard ' and there spent the night There le no way that Mason could get Into the asylum except through the County Insane board or from the penlten'lary, so he will have to re main In the home. Who pays the Freight f In the near future probably the supreme court will be asked to decide how tbe ex penses of the junketing party sent out by the Board of Public Lands and Buildings to Inspect Insane asylums of other states are to be paid. Inasmuch as Attorney Gen eral Prout was one of the party he will not hand down an opinion, but will ask the su preme court to decide, the matter being laid befcre the court, however, not in the na ture of a cult. During the summer, when the board took tip the matter of the Insane asylum to be built at NorfLlk, the Board of Public Lands and Buildings sent Attorney General Trout, Architect Tyler and Dr. Keams of Hact Iners to Investigate the cottage plan In ether states. Their1 expenses ranged from 108 to $120 or thereabouts and the board then began to cast around for a way to pay them. The auditor was Informed of the board's dilemma and stated that he thought It unlawful for the amount to be paid out of the Incidental fund. The board thinks otherwise and to decide the ques tion when the board gets around to It the supreme court will lie aaked to give an opin ion In the matter. CSats Oat Lithographing. The action of th State Printing board In rejecting the proposals for the printing of a map of the state, Including the sena torial, congressional and judicial districts and the various lines of railroads, at the request of the labor bureau, and the fur ther fact that the labor commissioner has filed with the board a second request with specifications exactly like the first, with the exception of the Insertion of the word "lithographed" maps, has caused some comment. By this Insertion there are only two firms in the state that would be able to bid on the work, these the State Journal company of Lincoln and the Rees Printing company of Omaha. Thla matter was called to the attention of the labor commissioner this morning by the representative of a firm that would like to do the job, but which could not bid on the lithograph work.' When the clerk of the board. Uw Frailer, was called upon by this representative he was out of town, and the specifications could not be found. A representative of the labor bureau some where dug up the specifications and the ob noxious word was stricken out, which leaves the work to be bid on the same as the first specifications.

TRACE OF ROBBERS AT HOOPER Men Believed to Bo Lyons Baak Loot ers Take the Trala at that Polat. HOOPER, N.eb., Nov. ao.-(Speclal.)-It is almost a certainty - that the Lyons bank robbers were visitors to Hooper on Tues day morning. It was discovered yesterday that the four robbers had taken the road routh from Lyons and down to the Elkhorn river bridge, about four miles east of Hooper. Here they unhitched the team, turned them Into a pasture of Mrs. William Slebrasse and took the buggy Into the woods. They built a fire to warm up and then walked to. Hooper. Several farmers along the road saw the four men shortly after daybreak. Coming Into town they went to the saloon of F. A. Tillman, where the bartender recognized one of them. After taking their drink they went over to the Cepot, where they took the Omaha passenger train east. The carriage and horses were brought to Hooper this morn ing and several empty money bags were found In It. The team was oovered with perspiration when found by the Slerrasae boy on Tues day morning, who, thinking It was a neigh bor's team, drove them out Into the road, and It Is supposed they have gone home. Sheriff Bauman waa here yesterday and ifti- scl:;s '.! tfcs ir.fcr has started on their trail. H-l Charity Ball at Fremont. FREMONT. Neb.. Nov. 20.

NECK IS' BROKEN AT FALL OF TRAP Denies Gnllt to Last and Bars At teaapt Was Made te Get Him te Kill Klekell, Wblcb He Refaseel. CHEYENNE. Wyo., Nov. 20. Tom Horn, scout, Indian fighter and cattle detective, went smiling today to the callows, where he expiated the murder of Willie Nlckell. aged 14, who was shot and killed, July IS, 1901, at Iron Mountain. The trap dropped at 11:08, Horn's neck was broken and six teen minutes later he was pronounced dead by the physicians. With almost his last words lie spoke to his Intimate friend, Charles Irwin, a spec tator at the execution. Horn denied that he had confessed to the murder for which he was to die. He made no speech on the scaffold. The condemned man was nm to the last. Ten minutes before gains; to the sallows he lay on his cot ' smoklna a cigar. After leaving his cell he was per mitted to shake hands with Charles and Frank Irwin. Earlier In the day Horn had sent for his old employer, John C. Coble, manager of the Iron Mountain Cattle com pany, and Coble was allowed to visit him til his cell. After the spectators, abou forty In num ber, had been admitted to the jail and Horn had come out of the cell, the execu tion was delayed while Rev. George H. Rafter prayed and Charles and Frank Ir win sang the cowboy's old railroad song, "Keep Your Hand Upon the Throttle and Your Eye Upon the Rail,' bringing tears to ths eyes of all listeners except tboB of Horn himself. ' I'rces Hora to Die Oasae, At the conclusion of the song came an Interview between Horn and Irwin. "Be game," said Irwin.' "You bet I will, replied Horn, who then assisted Under Sheriff Proctor and his as sistant to adjust the straps, noose. anu V Hi 1mI ft.itl v aifkcii tAJ County Clerk Joseph Cahlll, who assisted him to mount the trap door. They were: "Ain't losing your nerve, are you, JoeT" Soon after the trap fell the spectators passed out, each one shaking hands with Under Sheriff Proctor and congratulating him on the faultless execution. All had been searched for firearms before entering and guards armed with rifles kept their eyes fixed on Horn's friends throughout the proceedings. Thousands of people were congregated In the vicinity of the Jail and the ml lit la remained on guard until the execution wu over and the crowd had dispersed. There waa no disorder. In a letter to John C. Coble, Horn de tails his movements In the Iron Mountain country st the time of the Nlckell murder and makes the sensational admission that two men tried to have him kill Willie Nlckell but he denied his alleged con fession of the crime to Joseph Lafors, which led to the arrest. Ooveraer Deaf ta Appeals. Governor Chatterton was aroused before o'clock this morning by friends of Tom Horn, who sgaln sought a reprieve for the condemned murderer. The governor listened to the arguments of Horn's friends for srme time and then said emphatically: "There is no use, gentlemen, this execu tion will take place at the time set by the law. I wll! not Interfere In the case. This Id final." No lees than a dosen attempts were made during the afternoon of yesterday and last night to have the governor delay the exe cution for iren a few days. He had but one answer for all and that was that the U must take Its course. Horn apparently was hopeful all along tbat la some manner he would escape the gallows, but last night he wrote a farewe: letter to John C. Coble, manager of the Iroi Mountain Cattle company, by which he was employed for ten years, his business being to prevent rustling or thefts of cattle. "If I go, I want John to have this let ter." hs said. The letter was devoted to saying good bye to Coble and making a few requests as to what should be done with the personal property he should leave. Charles Irwin, the stockman who has bten one of Horn's closest friends, renewed his efforts to see the condemned man early today, but admission to the jail or even to the court house was denied him by the sheriff. Had an Invitation from Horn. "I'll be down In time for the execution-, however," . Irwin said. "I have an invita tion from Horn." It was reported that Irwin, falling In his effort to see Horn alone, would ask him on the gallows If he killed WUIle Nickel. Sheriff Smalley said that he would not permit any of the spectators to speak to Horn while he was on the gallows. John C. Coble, who csme to Cheyenne last night, waa an early caller at the Jail. He did not ask to see Horn, nor did he speak to anyone of tho guards who were standing In the doorway. He soon departed. Police Captain Delaney of Denver mingled among the police, sheriffs and militia at the Jail. "I expected any moment to see a riot started last night," he said. "I can't understand the reasons for Horn's friends not attacking the jail as planned. I guess their Uaders decided that It would be only courting death to attack the jail." Adjutant General Stltier, after a confer ence with Oovernor Chatterton this morn ing, decided to place more members of the militia around the jail. This was caused by the early arrival of the crowd. Even be ft re daylight persons came to the vicinity of the jail snd took the best points of ob servation. Every second brought additional arrivals, until the vacant lots in the vicinity were crowded. Yields to Last Reqaest. ' Once more Charley ' Irwin came to the Jail, thla time In answer to a hurried mes sage. Horn had sent for Coble, saying he wanted to talk to him before he died. ."I can't refuse him this lost request," said Jailer Proctor, "but anyone that enters the jail will be searched and Coble must tfllk to Horn In my pranenoo " Irwin paMently waited for the arrival of Coblu. "I will make John let me go In In his place," he said. "He knows Tom will tell me more than any other person. I must talk to Tom Horn before lie ii-. Remember, I do not think he Is guilty." But when Coble arrived at tho jail hs went on' In, remaining with Horn but a moment. "Goodbye. Tom." he said In a choked voice. "Turn, I can't atay. I came to say good bye. I'm sorry, Tom, but die like the man I know you to be. Tom, fate's sgalnst you. You must die. Goodbye, God bless you. goodbye, Tom." "Well, John." said Horn. "I'm glad you came. Can't he shake hands?" pleaded Horn of the keepers. Sheriff Smalley hesitated, then opened the door of the cell for the first time since the death watch was placed. Coble and Horn clasped hands In tne cell. "Goodbye, John," Horn broke the spelL Coble murmured a faint "Qoodbye" and walked away. Story of Horn's Sapposed Crime. Tbe nature of the crime for which Horn hanged was such as to leave little room for sympathy. Willie Nickel, the unof fending son of Kels P. nickel, waa shot snd killed July 18. 1901. at the Nickel home In the Iron Mountain district, not far from Laramie. The senior Nickel was a sheep man, offensive to tlie caflle barons, who are alleged to have employed Horn months previously to drive out all, sheepmen by Intimidation and by deliberate destruction If necessary, the salary for each murder to tie 4600. First, Horn murdered old man Lewis by shootins him In the back In Lewis' cabin, whither Horn had been In vited by bis unsuspecting host for ths saks ( lid-tlme friendship. The cattlemen 'anted Lewis' land. Horn's next known victim was William Powell, a one-armed man klued In his hay Held at Brown Park. Colo. Then the Mckel Tragedy. Then came the Nickel tragedy. Horn se creted himself In a pile of brush near the Nickel home to pick off Kels Nickel on his way to a watering place, but Willie, the 10-year-old son, was the first to come that path and chanced to detect Horn in kls hiding place. Horn,, fearing that If he allowed the boy to escape to the house a general alarm would be sounded, or at least the old man made so wary that Horn could not carry out his object, shot the lad on his horse. The boy wheeled about and, with all bis ebbing strength, urged the horse Into a gallop for the house, but Horn shot again and this time with Immediately fatal result. There was much excitement and some suspicion of Horn, but no arrest for some time. Finally Victor Miller, an acquaint ance of the Nickel boy, was charged with the crime and went through a trial before his Innocence was established. l.emar Nickel Is Shot. About two months later the senior Nickel was shot, one Sunday afternoon. In the .thigh and left arm. but not fatally, and suspicion began to center In Horn. After a wait so prolonged that it was com monly supposed the whole matter had been dropped Joe LaFors, a deputy United States marshal, pretending warm friend ship for Horn, got him Into the marshal's attics one afternoon when Horn was quits drunk, and there Horn, answering dexter ous questions, admitted his murders, said they had been committed for cattle men under the guise of ridding the country of rustlers and that he received 1600 per vic tim, his method of Identifying h.s work being the placing of a small white stone under the chin of each man he murdered and facing the body to the sun that decom position might set in as rapidly as possible. Also he said he burned empty cartridge shells larger than the bora nf hia defeat detection. Stenographer at tho Crack. While Horn was ininr h. hirn Court Stenographer Onhauss lay on the floor' of the adjoining room with his ear to the crack below the door and tnnv inn,n all that was said, while Deputy Sheriff Les- iie aina lay at lim slue to hear and tn guard Onhaurs. The arrest was not made until some days afteiward, when Sheriff Ed Smalley and Deouty Sheriff 8nn caught Horn at an unguarded moment In mo umce ot me inter Ocean hotel- at Cheyenne. At the trial a desperate effort was made to prevent the admission of the confession as testimony, on the ground that Horn was merely drunk and brag ging, but the attempt was unsuccessful. A few months ago Horn and another prisoner escaped from the Cheyenne Jail, but were recaptured in a very few minutes. At that time Horn attempted to kill Jailer Proctor, from whom he wrested a revolver, tut the weapon had a catch trigger new to Horn and Proctor's life was saved. Tom Horn was born In Scotland county, Missouri, November 21, I860. He was a cele brated army scout. Indian fighter and cat tle detective. He was the scout In charge of the party that captured Geronimo and was chief of scouts under General Miles In his Porto Rico camDala-n. In UOJ Horn participated In the raid against the cattle rustlers of Johnson county, Wyoming. Horn was a self-educated man. He spoke German, Spanish, Apache and a number of Indian languages fluently. Last summer he wrote a 160.000-word history of his career. Thla book he left to his friend, John Coble of Bosler, Wyo.
