Bays: Jack Williams, tho deputy sheriff
shot by George Price, one of tho es
caped prisoners, on Saturday night
died today. The posso has not found
any of the four men. They stole two
horses when they crossed the river,
and at least two of tho men aro mak
ing for tho bad lands.
Sheriff Cosnor is of the opinion
that ono of thom Is still in tho brush
near town, and does not think the
fourth man crossed the. river, as they
could find no traces of where onlr
threo mon came out of tho river on
tho south aide. It may be that one
of them drowned. Report Just re
ceived from Milk river says that two
men supposed to have been Hardee
and Brown wero seen on horseback
noar Stephen's ranch, lust across
tho river. They will probably remain
together, as tho general opinion Is
that Brown got In jail to liberate Har
dee, as this is tho second attempt.
All available men in the vicinity
are well armed, and Sheriff Cosner
expects to have a largo posse out to
morrow, with tho determination of
capturing them. It is not likely they
will bo taken alive, as they are well
armed. Sheriff Buckley of Chinook,
came In town today and will assist In
the hunt.
