County Judge Bryce Crawford has
written the following letter to the editor
of the 'World-Herald, explaining his ac
tion in the Wick habeas corpus case:
Perhaps wisdom would dictate that tho
unfriendly comments of the World-Herald
upon my ruling In the Wick case
should pass unnoticed ho far as I am
concerned, but since the' effort seems to
be to convince its readers that I was not
only wrong but corruptly wrong, I am
I constrained to state the case from the
standpoint on which It was decided,
it Is a fundamental principle of law,
. the wisdom of which all concede, and
I which has been Incorporated In every
om ot iisiilu frumea to protect the lib
erty of Kngllsh speaking people, that u
man shall not be placed on trial for his
personal freedom until he haB been In
formed of tho charge against him. In
Nebraska, as elsewhere, he must be "In
formed"' by a formal complaint filed In
open court prior to the day of trial.
But there Is an exception. In order that
courts may maintain order during open
sessions, arid that administration may not
be delayed and Interrupted, courtB are
empowered to punish those committing
dlrorderly acts tending to Interrupt and
delay the court's proceeding when, and
only when, committed in the presenco or
tne court, without a complaint being illcd.
For example, a litigant during court
session strikes his adversary and creates
an uproar. The court knowing, seeing and
hearing all the facts and tho resulting
Interruption, right thpn and there, with
out witnesses, without a complaint, pun
ishes by fine or Imprisonment the of.
fender "as for contempt In. open court."
I iiforiiinllnu MilHt He IMI91I.
Unless the contemptuous net occurs In
open court, or If any Information must
bo brought to the 'court before an act,
which Is not disorderly or Insulting In
Itself, is made to appear contemptuous.
Insulting or fraudulent upon the court
and the administration of Justice, then
the contempt Is not In open court, and
before the offender can be tried and pun
ished he must, under the law above men
tioned, be Informed against. A complaint
must be filed.
Now, In the police court. Wick brought
three men into court and said: "These
men are defendants whose cases were
continued this morning." Tho men con
firmed his statement, pleaded guilty, were
fined and paid their fines.
Thorn was no disorder, no Insult, no
Interruption of the court proceedings. If
Wick's statement were true It was proper
Some days later three other men ap
peared and claimed to be the parties that
had been at rested, that they had given
fictitious names, but were in fact the
prisoners wanted, Instead of tho men
whom Wlok had Introduced.
Thereupon an Investigation was com
menced and upon the facts gathered a
trial was ordered, but without complaint
being first filed, and upon hearing evi
dence of all the facts' Judge Foster
found that the men whom Wick had
introduced were not the men arrested,
and that Wick knew the were not. but
had Introduced them wim intent to de
ceive the court, and was, therefore, In
It seems to ine nothing could be plainer
than that this transaction, Insofar as
It was contemptuous, occitrrud out of
c "rt In co'lrt e -ry ,i tiC occurred
was In perfect order The contempt con
sisted In this- that Wick had gone out
of co irt and arranged with certain deni
zens of the neighborhood to impose on
To prove this other facts were neces
sary than those which the court learned
by sight or by hearing when Wick and
his ttoe men wore In the court.
That such Is the case and tfrat It whs
necessary, can scarcely be made more
apparent than from the record of the
case, which showB that a trial was held
and that numerous witnesses were In
fact examined, before the court could
Iparn or did learn that Wick wbh guilty
Just I'uetn nud I.mv.
Without desiring to engage In a con
troversy with a newspaper, I have stated
the fact! and the law, with complete
confidence that the statement makes It
upparent to lawyer and to layman that
my ruling was not wrong nor even
technlcalr but was "according to the
law and the evidence" und fundament
u inlL'ht be wise to end here. But the
I misrepresentation of my ruling by the
World-Herald has been so flagrant that
' I nm unwllllne to close without a chal
lenge to Its motive and Its good faith.
For 1 thing I may say that the Woild
Herald knows that my ruling was correct
and legal, because the World-Herald
informed itself upon that question by
consulting certain lawyers of Its ow
choosing and upon whom It relies. Mr.
T. J. Mahoney. Mr. J. W. Woodrough,
Mr. J. P. Urceri wero consulted by Its
representative, and although the state
ments of the lut two as printed were
misleading and untrue, nevertheless the
World-Herald knows that each of these
gentremen advised them that Wick could
not have been legally held by me under
the record made against him In pollco
court, because no complaint had neen
filed against hint.
And so, I think. I have a right to
Inquire why the World-Herald by car
toon, by editorial and by garbled news
Item continues to criticise this ruling.
Does It think a different rule should
obtain for saint and sinner, for the
popular and for the despised? Should the
court's ruling vary so that the Judge may
win applause and escape criticism?
Wlui I the (innl f
Or am I made tho goat to, shield some
one else. Did I make the blunder that
results in Wick going unpunished T I
think I have shown that I made no mis
take. I was not consulted about the pro
cedure In police court against Wick. That
was tho province of the county attorney:
and If Judge Foster had consulted Mr.
English he would have learned upon a
moment's notice that It was Imperative
to file n complaint and that a conviction
without such complaint wouldn't lc worth
the paper necessary to record It.
Now. I have no desire to Impugn tho
World-llerald's motive unjustly. I am
resting my criticism upon this reported
fact: That certain eminent lawyers, upon
whom It relleH and whom It selected,
have advised that my ruling was exactly
correct and legal. If I am wrong will
tho World. Herald print their opinions ex
actly as irlven? Not upon the queHtlou,
"Should Wick Be Punished ?"-that Is u
matter for pollen court but upon the
question, "Did tha county court rule
legally and correctly In the proceeding
for a writ of habeas. corpusT"

IN SIOUX CITY MURDER CASE
Following the finding of the decom
posed body of a boy. probably IB yeats
of age, burled under a pllo of sawdust
In the unused Ice house of the Omaha
road nt Eighth and Howard streets,
Sioux City, la.. Wednesday morning the
police have started searching for the
murderer and have Antonla Groth of
Omaha under Hiisplrion.
Upon the boj H body was found a
handkerchief bearing Groth's Initials.
Groth Is living at Eighteenth and Burt
streets, nnd up until the last week has
been In the employ of the Orchard-Wll-helm
He gave himself up to Chief Maloney
yesterday after reading an account of
the murder In a morning paper. Ho de
nies having any knowledge of the death
of tho loy.
How the boy happened to have the
handkerchief In his pocket Is a mystery
to Groth. Orolh nayn he left a package
of laundry containing two handkerchief
and other pieces of wearing spparcl In
the Kimball laundry at Sioux City, which
ho did not take out before coming to
Omaha. He left word with It. K. Roberts,
with whom he was boarding, to secure
the laundry. Groth could not say 'if
Roberts had taken the laundry.
Groth Is not being detained at the
station. Ho says tin Is willing to take
active steps to apprehend the murderer
of tho boy, and stated ho Intended going
to HI on x City and seo If be could

Chicago has finally scored one on
Omaha and after wfoks of he most
strenuous effort, laboring with the rail
roads mid the Interstate Commerce com
mission, seemed the cancellation of tho
15-cent grain rate from this city to New
Orleans put In by the Mtssuuti Pacific.
The Interstate Commerce commission
has bncked up and ordered the cancella
tion for December 13, whereas Its recent
order was thnt the istc would stand un
til Mnrch 3t.
With the IG-cent rate In effect. Omaha
had become the second grain shipping
cinter In the country and was pressing
Chicago hard for first place. Chicago
was feeling It and the Board of Trade
there labored hard with the Missouri Pa
clflo to withdraw the rate. This road
wan satisfied to let It remain In force,
for It was getting the bulk of the grain
going out of Omaha, aggrepating hut;,
dreds of cars dally during September,
October and November.
The Chicago Board of Trade went be
fore the commission, seeking to show
that the Missouri Paclflo was doing busl
ness at a loss and that the rate from
Omaha to New Orleans was too low as
compared with rates Into Chicago. The
claims were rejected for a time, but
finally the order was Issued to the. Mis
souri Paclflo to cancel Its rate March
81 next. This did not satisfy Chicago, so
Its grain organization got busy again
and with the result that December grain
will stop going to Ney Orleans for tho
reason that the rates will be anvancod
to 1SV4 cents per 1(H) pounds, )n line with
the present rate to Chicago on grain.
