Edward Jay is Bound Over Charged With Stealing Horses in Brown County

Ainsworth, Neb., Jun 20. The preliminary examination of Edward Jay, accused of stealing a span of horses from the Bell Cattle Company January last, was held today. Witnesses for the prosecution were present from Valley and Loup counties, to whom, it is charged, Jay sold the animals, and their testimony was very conclusive and convincing, everyone claiming to recognize Jay as the one from whom the stolen animals were received. The defense rested without introducing any witnesses or evidence whatsoever. Jay was bound over to the next session of the district court, July 21, in the sum of $2,500. So far he has failed to secure the necessary bail bond and has been placed in Sheriff Murray's hands for safe keeping. It is claimed, however, that he will be able to furnish bail within a day or two. Much satisfaction is expressed by stockmen over the result of the examination and the belief that justice will soon take a hand in questionable transactions in Brown County is heard in every quarter.
