If trouble is started both sides aro ready

and bunds of sheep may be slaughtered,
cattlo driven from tho ranges, unsus
pecting sheep herders may find thom
oolvcd "winged" and a few other high
arts of thc once famous west repeated.
All this has como about owing to tho
division of thc public range. For more
than a year tho situation between the
cattlemen and shoop owners has been
growing more and more tense, until now,
it Is claimed, an armed truce Is main
tained. Thc cattlemen, when they rldo
the range, aro armed with deadly
weapons, whllo tho sheepmen are also
prepared for troublo by having on their
person guns ready for action.
The western end of tho Salmon river
basin is an ideal cattle country. In tho
warm valcys lying near tho conllucncc
of the Salmon and Snake rivers there is
reported to bo scarcely any snow. Cat

PocateSIo Vastly DiffereoS: City
From lis Form'er "Tough" State
I . :
BY O. E. ARNEY.
Special to Tho Tribune.
POCATELLO. Ida.. Dec. 27. In the
early days of Its building, Pocatollo' had
a reputation altogether undesirable. It
was a "tough" town. There was a
class of people here who entitled it to
none other than these distinctions.
Gambling ran rampant Harlols were
but mildly restricted and. saloons prac
tlcally shaped the civic regulations of
early Pocatello. The old Depot hotel was
tho lone hostelry of the town, and scarce
another place to cat was accessible, ex
cept lunch counters In suloons or res
taurants attached to saloons.
There were many robberies and fre
quent murders and some suicides.
It was common for a shift boss to re
mark that ho could not look for the
return of a certain percentage of his
men to their respective stations in thc
shops until their pay check was spent.
Of course, this referred to the reckless
fellow who Insisted monthly on trying
his fortuno at faro, poker, roulette, tho
wheel of fortune, fan-tan or keno.
About each of thc twenty or more sa

During this trying period of thc pio

was a sober, firm, stable shop and train
force of boys and men as good as
gold, who maintained a very respectable,
cleanly atmosphere about the works. Most
of this class arc here today, and will
recall tho distinct line drawn at that
tlmo between thc high and low order of
employees. Most of thin latter class have
moved on Into oilier channels of life,
while in some a very high order of ref

All this was away back In the later
'SOs. Tills was about the period of an
exodus of gamblers and all-round tough
men from Lodge City. Pocatello and
Cutle were inviting points for their line
of illegitimate work.
It would be unfair to state that nt that

Pocatollo. This is not the case. There
were men who engaged In the sport as a
profession (?) who were of that old
school of honorable card players.. There
were a few of them on earth, and it is

approached tho sheriff, shrugged his

Tho sheriff told him to make his prepara

promptly Invited out of the office and
assured that he would be arrested if ho
ever made tho slightest suggestion of
such a oAime again.
On' tho day of the expiration of his li
