THE STOCXMENS' WAR.
SHEEP MEN AND CATTLE
'MEN OF WYOMINGjlN ?
DEADLY FEUDS :'A
Sheriffs, Deputies, Militia Called
- oat in the Effort to, Perserve
Peace Small Hope of a
Settlement.
- Batte, Mont., July 21. A special
to the Miner from Cheyenne, Wvo
says a bloody battle was narrowly
averted in the mountains, 'bijc miles
south of ThermoDolis today, when
Sheriff Fentoa transferred Jim
McLoud. the alleged Murderer of
Ben Minnick, from the city jail at
Thermopolis to the county jail at
Basin Citv. '
Sheriff Fehton left Thermopolis
at 6 o'clock" with his prisoner under
escort of the Basin Light Artilbry
of 40 men and 50 picked deputies.
Scouts had been sent out at sunrise
. and they'had reported that a large
foroe of cattlemen and the friends
of McLoud were camped on the trail
near Cottonwood Creek, and, from
preparations being made, they in
tended to hold up the 'sheriff and
his party and deliver the prisoner.
Coqsequently, when Fenton left
Thermopolis, he went prepared and
expecting a battle. Scouts rode on
ahead, and also.in the rear and on
either flank, but, wher the cattle
men saw-that the soldiers were alert
for battle, they quietly slipped away
and by making a detour entered
Thermopolis.'' With them wa Tem
ODay, the notorious character, who
is alleged to have been mixed up in
the killing of Minnick, and for
whom heSriff Fentonjhas a warrant.
McLoud was at once placed in the
cell formerly occupied by Walters,
the condemned murderer, who was
shot to death by a mob Sunday
morning, and a 6troog guard placed
about the jail. '
Helena, , Mont., July 21. The
range war in Northern Wyoming is
a natural outgrowth of the settle
ment of the country by small ranch
ers and the inclusion of large areas
in forest reserves, both of which
tend to crowd the range cattlemen
-and sheepmen to the wall. . What
- is left naturally becotcts" a matter
of dispute between the latter two,
and as the cattlemen were there
first, they naturally look upon the
sheepmen as intruders. - -
The cattlemen are particularly
er potent reason. Range that is
once gone over by a band of sheep
remains unproductive for years.
The cattle, on the other hand, can
range upon the same land year af
ter year, as they do ndt pull up the
- grass by the roots and devour the
whole plant, as do the sheep.
It is only a few months since
that an earnest protest was . sent to
President Roosevelt by the cattle
men of the Big Horn country. Buf
falo Bill, otherwise William F.
Cody, one of the largest stockmen,
personally carried this appeal to
Washington, and predicted to the
president that, if the sheepmen were
not restricted, bloodshed would re
sult. The experience of Wyoming in
this respect is not different from
that of Colorado, whose Routt coun
ty stockmen's wars are matters of
recent history. The" same is true
of Montana; stockmen are gradual
ly being forced out of the state
across the Canadian border,, and
only today there would have been a
serious battle between sheepmen
and cattle raisers in the northern
part of this country had not sever
al county officials got wind of the
intended raid upon sheepmen and
tffc-cted a truce. ' -
Tne trouble in North Wyoming
has been brewing for some time and
it seems highly improbable that it
will end without the- shedding of
even more blood, as the sheepmen
are weH organized and express a
determination to avenge the death
of Ben Minnick. a prominent sheep
man, who was murdered at his
place near Thermopolis about six
weeks ago." The sheepmen assert
that his death was effected 'by hired
assassins, employed by the cattle
men, for some of whom warrants
are out, but as yet none of these
' have been served. ,The names of
the cattlemen for whom warrants
have been issued " have not - been
made public, and the officials are
loath to do so until things quiet
down a little. .
Kb Pity Shown,
- "For years fate was after me con
tinuously," writes F, AGulledge
'Verbena, Ala. "I .bad " a terrible
case of piles causing, 24 ; tumors.
When all failed Bucklfn's Arnica
, Salve cured me." Equally good
for cuts and burps. Only 25 cents
at Allen's pharmacy."
Butte, Mont; July 21. A Miner
special from Billings says:
Word comes from Columbus pf
a heavy loss sustained a few days
ago by a , well-known sheepman
named Grimes. From ,the report
it is learned that some one scattered
poison on the range about 12 miles
"south of Columbus, where Grimes'
sheep were Tanging, andthe sheep
ate of-it. Over 1200 head areknown
to have died as a result, and others
were made so sick that their death
is looked for. Another sheepman
iff said te.have lost over 300 head.
There is uo clew to the miscreant.

Oregon City, Or,, July 21. Orin
Wright,"of Molalla, was in the city
today and reported that a strange
disease is affecting the cattle of that
neighborhood, lrom which many
herds are dying outright. He says
the first symptoms are bleeding at
the nose. This is followed by dys
entery and death, and thus far the
farmers have been unable to defeat
the fatal operation of the mysteri
ous disease. .
The farmers of that neighborhood
have communicated with the state
veterinarian. -who ''has been asked
to make an investigation of the
epidemic. A great number of cattle
are already dead from the effects of
disease.

(Albany Democrat.)
Those who are disposed to doubt
Dr. JDirrln'js cures will have their
doubts shaken on reading the testi
monials of Mayor R. P. Neil and
Mr. Rhodes. There are no persons
in thia state whose word will go
further to substantiate the doctor's
skill in treating the afflicted. There
can be no doubt or question of the
curative power of electricity,' judg
ing from the extraordinary cases of
eureperformed by Dr. Darrin. TheTankles, he swung the almost lifeless
great aavance 01 eieciro-magnewc
treatment is thaf it brings relief in
a large number of cases confessedly
beyond the reach of the ordinary
remedies of the physicians, and Dr
Darrin has forced a belief in the
curative ;powers pf electricity upon
the public by hisremarkables cures.
It seems that the uses to which
electricity is applied is not confined
to the arts, but is destined to do
what medical and surgical skill has
failed to accomplish.

BEAVER'S ARREST.
HE IS INDICTED FOR , TAK
ING A BRIBE OF , EIGHT
' HUNDRED DOLLARS.' J
A Claim That his Prosecution will
not be Pressed Because Others
' Higher in Authority Might -
' be Incriminated.
Washington, July 21. The delay
in bringing about the arrest of Geo.
W. Beavers, indicted lasThursday
for receiving a bribe of over-$800
in connection with the purchase of
cash registers for the postal service,
has I d to considerable comment
in Washington, and it is boastfully
charged by friends of the accused
that the government does not care
to oppress the prosecution, for fear
of his incriminating others who are
higher up. At the same time
friends of Machen are loud in their
condemnation of the apparently
lenient treatment of Beavers, 'which
is in striking contrast with the has
ty manner in which the free deliv-
ery man was nandied, alter nis in
dictment. -.. '
At the postoffice department the
explanation offered is this:
Beavers resides in Brooklyn, but
has not been there for more than a
week, according to reports from
New York. Beavers is apparently
trying to enforce the government
officers to cause his arrest in New
York, for if arrested in Manhattan,
he must be accorded a hearing be
fore a United States commissioner,
and in that event the department
would be compelled to expose its
hand. On the other band, if Beav
era xan be taken at his home, the
government need not make known
the details of its case prior to the
trial. , The department explains
that the delay is solely a play for
advantage, and the hope is held out
that Beavers may ultimately be ar
rested in Brooklyn. '
There is strong denial tha" Beav
ers is to be shown any undue con
sideration, but on the contrary, it
is insisted that he will be accorded
such treatment - as, he jastly de
erves. ' '' - "
New York World. Dr. D. C.
Mahgen, of No. 95- Park avenue,
Brooklyn, v- resussitated a half
drowned -baby yesterday afternoon
by swinging it around his head vby
its' feet. The baby was the. four
teen months-old son of Eiward
Taggart, of No. "31 St., Brooklyn.
It fell into a tub of water in the
kitchen, and was unconscious when
its mother found it. ..U-
Dr. Mangen, who was called, saw
that extreme measures were neces
sary, and grasping the -babe's tiny
form around his head in much the
same manner as a hammer-thrower
swings a hammer before hurling it.
The strenuous method availed. It
forced the-water out of the infant's
lung', and when an ambulance ar
rived the baby's heart was beating
almost normally and its breath a
gaiu coming even and strong.

7, Butte, Mont, July 22. Reports
come, from several sections of.
Idaho, Eastern Oregon and Wash
ington today to the effect that if
strife does not soon subside , open
warfare wilL be declared between
cattlemen and 6heep raisers.
Already from Columbus a sheep
man named Grimes makes a com
plaint that more than 1,200 head of
bis sheep were poisoned by .some
miscreant. i "
From Prineville, Antelope, Con
don and many other grazing centers
reports are coming that sheepmen
are armed for defense against cat
tlemen, whom they accuse of kil
ling stock and murdering. ' Just
where and when the trouble will
end cannot be told, but there are
efforts being made by all peace offi
cers to quiet the enraged sheepmen.

nurses and maids. Ihere she dug

In the afternoon she was taken for

Lolita is now able to walk about
and romp. She came into the re
ception room of the cottage with a
slight limp and a swinging motion,
both of which, Mrs. Armour said,
had greatly diminished since , the
child began to walk without the
