George Kingen and William Winninger, the two men who were arrested in Lincoln a few days ago for the crime of petit larceny, are In the city Jail at this place. Their hearing was today. While the complaint which is against them is for stealing chickens, which they seem to have done in a wholesale way, more serious charges will be instituted against them, for a crime committed at this place some nights ago, when they held up and robbed John W. Miller of this place. As told by Miller, he received a note from a woman, whose husband Is now in the county jail, Jonas Reynolds, to call at her house, as she wished to see him on some urgent business. According to the story told by him, he called one evening and was admitted by Mrs. Reynolds. While talking with her there was a loud rap and a second later the door was broken down and two men stood before Miller, one having a double barrelled shotgun leveled at Miller's breast. The command was given to throw up his hards. Tbo two mon were Kingen and Winninger. They bound him firmly, and ho was laid on the floor. Kingen told him that he had but a few minutes to live, for, as he said, "they intended to blow the top of his head off, and chuck his body under the ice of the creek." A creek runs close to the house. Miller summoned up all his power of moral persuasion and tried to convince them that they would gain nothing by that kind of a procedure, but they could have what he had about him. Thy then proceeded to search him, all the while abusing him shamefully. They found some change and a silver watch. This did not suit them and they insisted upon Miller giving them an order for a team which he owned. Miller declined to do this. While they were parleying, Miller edged his way toward the stove and kicked it over, hoping to attract attention from outsiders. However, this failed, as he was immediately covered with a gun, and ordered to lay quiet. At last a settlement was effected. Miller signing a note for $200 in favor of Kingen, which would bo due in September. Miller was then allowed to depart, but forced to walk home, about half a mile, without shoes or coat or vest. Before allowing him to go they made him swear that he would never tell what they had done, and made awful threats in the event he did so. For several years there has been hard feelings between Miller and Kingen. Kingen was incarcerated in the county Jail at one time and escaped. Miller discovered him doing so and notified the Jailer. Kingen was captured and sent to the penitentiary for the crime he was being held for, that of assault with attempt to kill. Since his return he has made frequent threats to get "even" with Miller, and it is thought by many that Miller's going to the house was all planned prior to the robbery. Kingen had been in the penitentiary but a short time when he was paroled to a farmer of this county. He had not been there but a short time, however, when he was shot and seriously wounded by Frank Hazelett, his brother-in-law. He was tried for the crime, but acquitted. Winnlnger, the other man, has also served a term in the penitentiary for holding up a man several years ago.
