In the case I of Richards, C'omatock, Jameson and Triplet, the trial began November n. 13. and ended December 21, IstWI, with a verflici of guilty as to each of the aefondants. The convicted men were erraiirned for sentence March 18, 197. Richards and Comstock were sentenced to pay a fine of tl.SOO each snd to be confined In the Douglus county Jail one year. Jameson and Triplett were sentenced to pay a fine of CM ench and to eight months' Imprisonment each in the Douglas county Jnil. The trial of Huntington. Todd and Hoyt began April 8, 1307 and ended April 19, 1907, with a verdict of guilty. Huntington and Todd were sentenced to pay a fine of J1.000 each and to b3 Imprisoned In the Douglas county Jail for three months. Hoyt was sentenced merely to pay a fine of XLOQ with no ImprlaonmenL Appeal n A Heated Error. The entire seven cases were Curried to the circuit court of appeals on alleged error, but the appeal was denied about four montha ago. and the defendants were all given sixty days to file a motion for rehearing to the same court. It is this motion for a rehearing that has Just been denied, and now aa a last re course, the attorneys for all the defendants will apply to tljo United State supreme court for a writ of certiorari, which Is equivalent to another application for a new trial. The trial of tha cases against tha two groups of defendants excited the widest interest throughout the entire country be cause of the eminence of the two rrincipal defendants, Bartlett Richards and W. Q. Comstock, as the leading cattle men of northern Nebraska, their great ranch of several hundred thouaand acres being known as the Spade ranch located hi north erf and northwest Nebraska. Iadleted Seven Tears Past. In a previous case these same two de fendants had an Indictment returned against them December 10, 1003, charging them with illegally fencing a large area of public lands, and they were reindicted on the same charge in May, 1306, when Richards and Coiutsock pleaded guilty In November, 1905, to the indictments and were sentenced to pay a flna of $300 each and to six hours confinement each In the custody of the United States marshal. Tha two men were turned over to their at torney, B. S. Hall by tha United States marshal, T. L. Mathews, as special custodian, and were taken to tha Omaha club, where they spent tha six hours of their confinement, l;Tbe lightness of the sentence was believed, by the Department of Justice to have been due to a lack of proper prosecution, and tha result was that the then United States Marshal T. L. Mathews and United States Attorney L F Baxter were summarily rsmoved from of fice by President Roosevelt. William P. Warner waa immediately ap pointed to succeed Mr. Mathews as United States marshal and Charles A. Ooss be came United States attorney, succeeding Mr. Baxter. The trial of the defendants on tha third indictment which resulted in conviction, a document of Over S.Ooa-tages was conducted by Special Assistant Attorney General S. R. Rush and United States Attorney Charles A. Goes, assisted by Assistant United States Attorney A. W. Lane. . The first group of defendants waa rep resented by R. S. Hall and J. F.

SOUTH OMAHA, April li-Ta the Edi tor of The Bee: It wad with a sense of satt.factlon that many of your readers resd your recent editorial on "Foreign Missions and World Peace," which assured us that the former Imprudent, untrained missionary waa being replaced by men bet ter suited for the task. Leaving out of consideration the enormous spiritual havoc that unsuitable men can work In such a field of endeavor, Un-y have, a you say, also brought about material troubles In the form of international disturhancea by their misdirected energy. However, recent de velopments would Indicate that there Is yet plenty of room for Improvement In the missionary material that Is being sent abroad from the United States. But if you can. some day soon, assure us that the ranks of the Associated Press reporters in foreign news centers are being replaced by safer and nancr men. It will again replenish our cup of Joy. No set of men have In their hands the power to disturb Internat ional relations to the extent that those men have, for the press more than any other element molds the opinion of the ordinary reading public. And If press reports are untruthful, exaggerated, or give a wrong perspective, then public oplnian formed on them as a basts will of course possess the same qualities. In this way prejudices and passions are aroused that increase In volume until they become an Irrefutable force. History proves that even war has resulted from Inflamed public opinion, where under other circum stances, war would not be resorted to. Our Spanish-American war waa caused by sentiment, when little material Interests were involved. The contributing causes of a desire for Cuban liberty, the Maine's des truction, etc., were entirely overshadowed by the feeling that our national pride was affronted. And who told us It was me Associated Press reporters in Cuba. How our fists did Itch for an opportunity to take the Insolence out of those Cuban Span- lards when we read those dispatches, sent by Correspondent Scovllla and others, giv ing accounts of the insults heaped upon us "TaiiVee dogs and Yankee pigs." Well, at last we worked ourselves Into a real war spirit President McKinley and congress could hardly stem the torrent long enough to put the army and navy in condition for war, so fierce was the clamor. When the war was over, and the American army oc cupied Cuba, It Is Interesting to note that those same reporters were literally kicked out of Cuba by the American authorities, so offensive had their attitude become. Had the Spanish authorities done that in the first place, it Is possible that other means than war would have settled the disturbance. The Associated Press men abroad evidently act on the adago of P. T. Barnum. "Tho American public does love to be humbugged." When Cardinal Merry Del Val has not time to afford an Interview they send up a "pipe" Involving his father, . aunt, or mother-in-law, in wnicn xne "Yankees" are auain Insulted. When Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. Plnchot fail to unbosom themselves to these un scrupulous fellows, they Imagine what the mutual interest was, and forward us the result in the hope of stirring up more trouble. If the editors of our Influential news papers win devise some plan of weeding out those liars from the press service abroad, they will render a valuable service to both truth and patriotism. '" A. t. brennan: That Inquisitive- Ceaaaa Mas. Omaha. April II. To the Editor of Tha Bee: These census enumerators that are abroad in the land. Mr. Editor, Is there no appeal from them? For downright In qulsltiveness, I point to their list of queries, why, they even expect a poor woman to reveal the tragedy of her life her age. With ruthless scrutiny they eye the pitiless figures of her hemic self-mastery and then oh, agony of agonies! ask her io swear to It. For one moment she craves the privi lege that has always attached itself to, or rather been attached by masculinity. What behooves woman's dally massage as a wrinkle eraser, her painstaking re moval of silver threads among ther red and her nractlce of 'a teetering step that Is supposed to herald youth on tha wing. If these emissaries of a twentieth century In quisition are to go on their way rejoicing? Well, there's a morsel of comfort for some of us and that Is this: So severe a trouncing comes but once a decade and by the time the next arrives many a brain twisted, heart-sore woman will have pasaed to where there are no census takers, no provoklngly persistent gatherers of help ful statistics. , Woe Is me.

The most encouraging reports were re ceived Sunday sfternoon of the progress of the laymen's missionary movement? at a mass meeting of delegate '.aymen fmm Omaha. South Omaha and Council Bluffs churches at the Toung Men s Christian as soctation. which Indicated that Interest In the laymen's missionary movement has not abated. The meeting waa presided; over by Clem ent Chase, who in his Introductory re marks said that this was nut by any means the crrTuTudlng meeting of the laymen s movement, but wai really the beginning of the movement.. Ha waa pleased to see from the large attendance that the spirit of tha laymen's movement was still In the air and boded well for its enduring char acter. Reports were called for from the churches represented as to the progress being made In meeting the pledges made for support of the movement at the March convention. Many of the churrhea reported that they would double their pledges. Others bad already mat or would soon meet their pledges. In fact, scarcely a church but gave in Ihc most encouraging reports. Some of the denominations had been unable to make a thorough canvass since the convention on accuunt of it being the close of tha ecclesiastical year, nnd others had been busy with the serv ices of holy week, but now that these matters were out of the way the laymen's movement work would be taken up and there would be no- Question but that the peerage, a large rent-roll and a long stand pledges would be fulfilled and even mora, ing feud with the next door neighbor for Short addresses were delivered by several another nobleman. In order to Insert a of the ministers, in which they all spoke of the Inspiration that has been given every branch of church work by the lay men's movement. Instances were given where Sunday school classes had pledged themselves to a plan to educate a native girl and native boy In some foreign misi sion field, while some of the small churches had obligated themselves to see to tha support of native Christian teachers In foreign lands and other churches hod as sumed the responsibility of the support of a missionary In thel foreign field. In addi tion to their contributions to foreign mis sions. Thirty or more churches gave positive assurances that the quota of $2 to 15 per member would be raised for foreign mis sions during the year, and most of them gave further assurances that these contri butions would be permanent. It was shown by the various reports that as an outgrowth of the laymen's move ment that laymen had gone out In the field to work. Men who formerly would do nothing In the line of church work were now at worlt- Missionary subscriptions were doubling and every indication pointed to tho fact that tn laymen's interest In church work was permanent. At the close of the meeting Clement Chase said: "While them Is an lndeflnite ness about many of the- reports that have Just been given in, yet this will not affect the results or enthusiasm. The executive committee will shortly send out a call for more definite flgarest from the various churches. I .wish further to say that I have become deeply interested In this great movement and have ixjraatly enjoyed ' the associations and nfew Acquaintances I have made since associated wlrn It and am yet at your service in forwarding the cause of foreign missions." " Mr. Chaste called attention' to the great meeting of the Men's National Missionary congress to be held fn Chicago May J-a, whichi he- stated, wtruld" bo one of the greatest religious meetings of the world. He urged that as many Omaha people should attend the great meeting as could. The program Includes addresses by many of tha foremost ministers, bishops and laymen of the United- States. Big Boost for Hospital Fund J. L. Erandeis & Sons Contribute $300 to Movement for Erection of Annex-to Wise Memorial. A cash donation of tSM from tha firm of J. L.

The Brandeis firm has been a liberal donor to the hospital since th.6 new building waa projected a few years ago, and con tributed largejy to the success of the pres ent structure. This gift gives another sub stantial boost to the US, 000 annex fund be ing raised and for the benefit of which a two week's fair and basar will be held at tha Krug theater, beginning May 1.

For one thing the sympathy of the audience Is fairly sure to be enlisted in behalf of the man who Is preaching that democracy and human uuallty in which we all profess at least to believe. Moreover tha anguish of English cousins at ruthless desecration or venerable traditions has a funny aspect to average American eyes. In this case It Is a North Dakotan of Vir ginia ancestry who suddenly falls heir to little complication, son and daughter of one belted earl are made to fall In love with daughter and son of the other.

Two episodes In the play ring quita true. One Is at tha end of the second act. where the American's defense of his couitry sounds genuinely felt, and the same time is minus that blatant jingoism which often passes on the stags or In stump speech for the real thing. The other scene Is where , tha American say farewell to his daugh- I ter. Just about to elope with the son of the enemy.

The elifht HVjIe girls from the land of Nippon are a charmingly novel departure from the ordinary run of vaudeville. Th? Japanese octet In native songs and dances proved popular yesterday through this quality of novelty as well aa through In trinsic merit. The act is handsomely and picturesquely staffed. Shortly after they hid done there waa another Japanese on thp stage, or, more j strictly, the unusually clever Impersonation j of one, by an actor named Allen Atwell, ! who is one or the two principals In at' stirring 'little sketch called "The Code Book." This Japanese was not nearly so i attractive aa the others because ha, for-! sooth, was a spy serving as a body ser vant to an American officer. "The Code I Book" is a bully little one-act play, ad-1 mlrahls from every point af view, and ! most capably- acted by Charles P. Ham mond, Percy Plunkett and G. A. Brown, besides Mr. Atwell. Other features of the bill are also good, the whole being the best in several weeks. Clarice Pasquelena, with Whom appears William J. Sullivan, Is one of tha fun niest women who have been on this stage In a long time and tha audience also greatly fancied the nonsense of Fred War ren of Warren and Blanchard. Other acts are Ilia Clermont burlesques circus, a pre tentious trained animal affair; Miss Eva Mudge In songs and quick character changes, and R. franklin and the two Standards, these last being acrobats known as "tha human rubber balla."

In which the silent presence on tha stage of a number of well dressed and good looking girls more than compensates for the boisterous behavior of two male persons who are libeling the word "comedian" by their antics. All the way through, tha feminine end of the company outshines the mas culine. Tha distinctive feature of tha performance is the dance by Mile. Murln and Signor Ferrari. Thla la a part of a clever pantomimic sketch, illustrating an evening among the "Apaches" of Pairs. Tha girl wins back ber lover from a slrrn who had nearly captivated him, and the two do a wild, almost uncanny dance. Tt does not deserve the reputation that at taches to the so-called "Apache" dancs that has been used aa a ahocker in tha east, for It la not vulgar nor suggestive in any way, but Is a maddening whirl. In which such souls might well unite. Ths pantomime Is made the .more realistic by the murder of the dancing girl at ths hands of tha loser, and the grief of the lover for tha death of his mistress. Not a word la spoken during tha Sketch, but the acting is so forcible aa to leave little misunder stood. The other specialties are enjoyable. Howe's Travel Plot area at tha Bord.
