tion terrltorjr be permitted to post

members of the gang show that tha
prisoner has caught the ear of Uncle
Sam and rigid Inquiry by tho Federal

All 38 men accused by Vaught have
been ordered to appear before the In

His victim was a prime mover of tha
night-rider clique, declares Vaught. and
he spilled his blood In defense of his
own life and homestead.
Settlers, contestants and their wit
nesses have been the prey of night
riders for months, Vaught Is reported
as telling the United States District
With the issuance of subpenas for

Men Reported Missing.
How many men are missing?
"Where is Johnson, whose horse
rushed into town riderless last week?
What has become of the stranger
who ordered a stock of supplies and
has not called for them?
These and other questions are heard
at every corner and visitors to Bolso
from the Prairie are recalling mid
night shots and screams they regarded
as only ordinary at the time.
Lending color to Vaughfs declara
tion that nlghtriders hold sway ver
the Prairie, several settlers called by
the grand Jury told city friends how
they had been threatened with tar and
feathers by masked men if they did
not desist contesting against certain
entrymen. Lynching was threatened a
few; others showed bruises obtained
in fights with entrymen under suspi
cion. Gang's ' Kxtent Unknown.
The extent of the night-rider gang.
If one exists, is not known, but the
possibility of the power of such a
band may be Judged from the fact
that 200 desert land entries covering
30,000 acres are said to be open to
contest on Camas Prairie.
Vaught had contested the claim of Al
bert T. Leek to a piece of land entered
under the desert act and the contest
had Just been decided in favor of Vaught.
D. V. Emmons and his brother. Cliff
Emmons, were close friends of Leek, and

the Emmons brothers were there. They
followed him outside, he asserts, in
sulted him, attacked him. threw him
down and commenced beating him with
their fists. While he was held down.
Vaught declares, he managed to draw
his revolver and fired four times. One
bullet struck D. V. Emmons near tha
heart and caused his death. Vaught is
now in Jail in Hailey, charged with mur
der in the first degree.
The evidence was placed in the hands
of United States District Attorney Lin
genfelter. He ordered Deputy Marshal
Beemer to Camas Prairie armed with
subpenas. Mr. Lingenfelter is said to be
in possession of sensational evidence
tending to show that the alleged night
riders subjected their foes to most in
human treatment to gain their end.
