District Attorney, June 22, in
place of Judge Post, resigned, and
left his home at York, Nebraska,
on July 4th in the afternoon - not quite
10 days ago. I am pleased with his
appearance and think that he will do
very much better than Post, for his health
is good - he is over 6 feet tall, strong
and vigorous - about 50 years old.
Assisted Claypools into Johansons
house - Harlans took possession of
Frenchs cabin. Hope things will go
better now with a good district Attorney.
Harlan, Dist. Atty. sworn into office:
Case of U.S. v. Gay, illicit cohabitation,
tried: verdict not guilty. Mr. Tod,
Cowles admitted to the bar. Case of U.S. v.
Gay is another evidence of the leniency
with which juries view the promiscuous relations
of persons of different sexes in this country.
