Barker Faces Long Sentence.
Nemaha County Officers Take 4,000 Mile Trip To Get Him.

While Sheriff C. E. Carman and Deputy Elmer Eiter are on the trip to Kelso, Washington, to return George Barker to Nemaha county, preparations are being made at the jail so he can be held continuously in the new ceil block upstairs, which in addition to being escape-proof, will keep him from the other prisoners. Barker will be the first prisoner in the new block.

Barker faces penalties which may total 38 to 67 years in prison. There are three counts each of which combines burglary and larceny charges. Each is punishable by 10 to 15 years. Three other counts charge larceny, each punishable by sentence of one to five years, Barker also faces an arson charge, which alleges he set fire to the Seneca planning mill. This crime would be arson in the third degree, for which sentence is five to seven years.

Carman and Eiter reached Limon Junction, Colo., the first night of the 4000 mile trip which is necessary to bring back the fugitive. The officers were slowed somewhat by the flooded Republican river. They could not cross at Bellville, had to come back some distance, go south and cross at Clifton.-Seneca Courier-Tribune.
