SI,--Tlis scare! 1 , of the last three weeks by the friends of Harrelt Scott for his body has been rewarded aud the waters ot the Xiobrara rive»- havo o-iven nn the dead. The body was found Saturday nig-lit at !:l.~i ill the Xiobrara near \Vhillng's Bridge, about t h i r t y miles north of this city. The posse which discovered the body started out from this city l-'riduy morning and went at once to, the Niobrara river fully ccruipped' to bcnreh the bottom ot the river for the missing" maji. \V hile exploring the bottom «f the river on t h u north side one of tho searchers struck somv object with his grappling hook. He at once called to his assistance some of the others and loosened the corpse from the :and iu the bottom of the river. As soon as it n a s moved it at once came to the surface .;nd was taken out upon the ice. Vi'liere the body was found there was J about six feet of water, over which j was eighteen inchea of !eo. , A r o u n d the ncclc of the murdered I man was a h n l f - i n c h rone. There, '.vere , alsobruiscs upon his head, where he | w a s doubtless stt.lck, pussibl} with tho i b u t t ol a revolver. In his pocket, was ! his gold watch, which was stopped at' !· 12.01. This, it is Ihonirhl by many, is ! when Scoll's body was tin-own isito thu ! river and t h a t 11.2 watch stopped as' ] sjion as he struck i l i c water, although thcrf w a b no w a t e r found inside lhc' case. HolU hands were tied behind his back, and fro... the looks of the body he e v i d e n t l y underwent considerable t o r t u r e befoi-c his murderers k i l l e d him. The c r i m e for which llari-ctt Scott paid h i s life « n s the embezzlement of P70,ot)0 of the funds, of Holt county nnd the subsequent wrecking- of tho Holt Cuii.ity biinit, practically impoverishing nearly all of the farmcra and business men in Holt. The amounts stolen ag-greg-ato about SHify coo. As the body was found · upon the norlli side of Lhe river in Uoyd county the coroner of that county was sent for. lie arrived about 7 o'clock in tho m o r n i n g and held an imjucs-t. A verdict of w i l f u l murder waa returned by t h e coroner's jury and (Jeorgc 1). Mul-, Mo.scs Elliot, and Mert, Itoy, nnd sundry other persons to tho jurors.Un- k n o w n are implicated, IntciiEO excitement prevails in the c i t y , large delegations being present Irum towns, iu dillcrent parts ot the county, and trouble is feared. Several h u n d r e d residents of this city viewed the I'cina.n.s yesterday as they were in the u n d e r t a k i n g rooms of O, K IJiglin, ai.d on all sides were heard men of this city denouncing thu cjwurdly eriiui- and pcrpelralor.s, and they are sure to meet jnst p u n i s h m e n t for th'cii' crime.

Petroleum has touched SI again in nominal price, but without activity. In wool there arc fairly larifc dealings, 10,073,SIT, pounds in January t ius far, as ayninst 11,BS7,KOO in 1904, much of the increase being in foreign wool. Considerable sales of carpet wool arc reported and n better demand for territory, while Ohio XC is quoted at 17 cents. The important London Bale ot Australian lias caused some hesitation.
