r 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.

The farmers of that neighborhood have communicated with the state veterinarian. -who ''has been asked to make an investigation of the epidemic.

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.

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. Boston, July 16.
