II GEORGE IN. PERKINS
I TAKES JPJIGELS
i Attacks Chairman Milles for
I" Statement Regarding Roose
Hi I velt Campaign Fund.
SAYS NO PROOF SHOWN
! Asks Why the "Certain Un
I disputed Facts" Mentioned
j Were Not Put in Evidence.
SEW YORK, Oct. 13. George. V. Per
kins, chairman of the executive commit
tee of the Progressive party, made public
tonight a letter which he sent today to
Charles D. I lilies, chairman of the Na
I tionai republican committee, in reply to
' the- letter Mr, Hilles read to the Clapp
committee while testifying last Thurs
1 Mr. Porkins calls attention to the fact
that the statements and charges ma'dc
in Mr. Hllles's letter were "made dcllb
I orately, in writing and under oath," but
I the sworn statement contains no proof
! with which to support the charges.
! "You state."' .Mr Perkins continues,
"there was evidence on every hand of the
expenditure of large sums of money in
, Mr. Roosevelt's behalf expenditures
which 'undoubtedly amountetd to not less
I than J2.000.000. If there exists such evl-
I denccvon every hand, why did you not
j produce It In detail on the stand before
I the very committee that Is so anxious for
I exactly this kind of information?
II Says. Facts Not Given. .
I "You state that 'with respect to the as-
I scrtlon that harvester money was used in
I the' campaign, certain undisputed facts
I permit no other reasonable conclusion.'
I Again I say if thcro exists such ccrtalji
I undisputed facts, why did you not pro-
(j duce and present such facts while on the
Jl stand before the proper committee?
f "You stato that 'there is a fact full of
significance, namely, that the harvester
I trust Itself is silent as to whether It has
j contributed anything.'
"Bearing on this point. In another part
f of your letter you say to mo 'to all In
tents and purposes, therefore, you have
been the harvester trust.'
No Harvester Fund.
"If as you assert. 1 am the harvester
trust, then the statement made In- my
letter of September 2.1. namely, that 'the
i harvester company has not, directly or ln
f directly, Itself or through an individual.
; employee, officer, director or friend, at any
'j time contributed one cent towards Mr.
i Roosevelt's campaign cither before the
1 Chicago convention of June or since that
ilmo' should be accepted by you as a defl-
i nite statement on behalf of the company
that it has made no such contribution
as you claim.
"If, however, you refuse to accept, my
! statement and have such overwhelming
evidence as you claim to have, to the cf
Tcct that the harvester company has con
tributed then, knowing as you do that
such contribution would be Illegal, you
surely could easily have had President
Taft order an investigation or the books
or the harvester company by proper gov
ernment officials. In order to ascertain
Inst what contributions have boon made
and publish to the world the fact that
such Investigation revealed."

Dickey has even her attorney. William

expectedly departed from a rooming
house at S10 South Hope street when
her suit against her aged husband was
filed, leaving absolutely no word behind.
"I'm confident she will appear when it
5p necessary," said Lewis today. "She
shuns publicity, and this probably ac
counts for her secrctlvcness."
Dickey, the husband, whon communi

wife's suit a deliberate attempt to black
mail him, and It was to convey this .in
telligence to his wife that a reporter
sought her today
Lewis answered the charge as follows:
"The allegation of blackmail Is a handy
defence for such men as Dirkoy. I havo
every proof of his marriage to Mrs.
Dickey, who was deserted by the defend

of Hcrana, after desperate fighting. They
now arc 'on their way to Slcnltza. thirty
miles northeast of Byclopolyc and close
to llic Servian frontier, against which
they will direct an attack. It Is in tills
direction that tho Montenegrins expect
to Join hands with tho Servian army when
they advance from the north.
According to a Constantinople dispatch
to the Standard, Ks-ad Pasha arrived at
Scutari today with reinforcements, rais
ing the garrison from 12.000 lo 20,000
men. If this news is true, the Monte
negrins will have a difficult task in cap
turing Scutari.
Officials Mystified.
The prison authorities state that they
have no Idea how the convicts secured
the guns they carried when they escaped.
Seven of the convicts were armed with
knives which I hey had stolen from' the
serving table at various times. Nealc,
the cellhousc keeper who was overpow
ered, considers Ills escape from death mi
raculous, as most of the prisoners wanted
lo kill him. He was spared at tho com
mand of Pazo. the Mexican ringleader.
Of the men who escaped, oho of the
most desperate is Nad Richardson. Iln
was serving a life term for murder, and
was considered the worst man In the
penitentiary. Burke was serving a term
of from twenty to thirty-five years for
murder. Elliot fnegr.o) was sentenced for
five years for horse stealing. Oilmoro
was in for two years. Stewart was serv
ing a sentence of from three, to six years.
Backstruni was sentenced for four years
for burglary.
Some of Those at Large.
The following are among the men who
escaped yesterday. Most of those named
arc still at largo:
Bert Dalton, "bandit and member of tho
Whitney gang.
Tom Roberts, alias S. II. Norwood,
alias Red Mike.
Chance Knowltou. Lawrence Williams,
Joe Turner. Charles Jones, Gcorgo Wil
son. Frank Dariiea, Mike Reagan and Roy
Smith.
Last June fire parttallv destroyed the
broom factory .'it the penitentiary. Tho
convicts made no effort to escape, but
went to the aid of the prison guards,
formed a bucket brigade and saved tho
grcator parL of the building and the sup
plies. Signal bravery on the part of
some of the convicts resulted in tho com
mutation of the sentences of eight of
them, and one wa paroled and another
pardoned.
Lynching" of Wig-fall.
On Wednesday. October 2, Frank Wig
fall, a negro, was lynched by a mob of
convicts after he had been lodged in the
penitentiary lo save him from a. throng
of citizens who had gathered about the
county Jail. Wigfall had attacked an
aged woman. At breakfast time the ne
gro laughed and joked about his crimo In
the hearing of the convicts., Two score
prisoners overpowered the solitary guard
In that part of the prison, took the ne
gro and forced him to Jump from the
railing into an open corridor, at Iho end
of a rope. The. prison authorities have,
not been able to learn the names of the
lynchers, the convicts having threatened
to kill the first man who "squealed."
For the past two years the pcnltcnllarv
has been administered under a "reform1,
system, by which the convicts have been
given a large measure of liberty.
BULGARIA REPLIES
TO NOTE OF POWERS
.
SOFIA, Oct. 13. Bulgaria's reply to th
Russo-A.ustrian nolo was presented to the
diplomatic representation tonight. This
note and one addressed lo Turkey are
couched in moderate terms. The Bulgar
Ian -government says It Is most anxious
to do nothing that will aggravate the
precarious situation and Is desirous of
leaving open every avenue for the main
tenance of peace until the last poaslblo
moment.
The reply points out that the wording
of one of the most Important clauses of
the powers' note is not clear and as Bul
garia is anxious lo avoid all misunder
standings, asks the powers to- state pre
cisely what the doubtful clause means.
In conclusion the note declares the de
lay has been due to the fact that the note
of the powers was addressed to all the
Balkan states and that therefore time was
necessary for a discussion of Its contests',
by tiie states.
Most of the Bulgarian towns have a de
serted appearance. Only old men, bovs
and women are to be seen. Practically all
business has been suspended.
BULGARIAN ARMY IS
MOVING TO BORDER
By International News Service.
LONDON, Oct. 13. The Balkan war
cloud, which has darkened omlnouslv.
pending the outcome of diplomatic peace
overtures, tonight Is at the point of:
breaking. 1
The Bulgarian army is on the move,
according to tho most reliable dispatches
received here, tonight. Bulgaria's reply
to thf RuHso-Austrlan note was presented
to l lie diplomatic representatives tonight,
and although it is moderately worded and
gives assurances that the Bulgarian gov
ernment docs not want to aggravate tho
present situation, It is not regarded as
denoting Bulgaria's attitude.
Servia's reply will ho dollvcred tomor
row. Scrvia flatly refuses to comply with
tlie terms of the note, bceauso It pro
vides no guarantee for the institution of
the desired reforms. Scrvia tomorrow
also will present an ultimatum to Tur
key demanding autonomy for certain
provinces under control of tho Balkan
states.
The Greek government will give out its
reply probably tomorrow, and a Greek
declaration of war Is regarded as in
evitable. The ominous intelligence that the Bul
garian army is on the move was wired to
tho Dally Telegraph late tonight by Ben
nett Burleigh, the Telegraph's special
correspondent at Sofia. Every morning
newspaper In London regards the situa
tion as hopeless. The Telegraph says
editorially:
Intervention Too Late.
"Over the whole of tho BaJkan em
broglio arc written in letters of fire the
words. 'Too late.' If tho concert of I5u
ropc lasts all may be well, but if the
course of events accentuates divergent
Interests of Austria or Russia. Bulgaria,
Great Britain or France than we are on
Ihe verge of a new and sinister epoch.
We are confronting a menacing pano
rama of tremendous possibilities which!
will leavo Ineffaceable I races on tho fu- I
turo annals of the world."
A Times editorial reads:
"A war between Turkey and tho whole
of the Balkan league Is now only a matter
of a few hours. Nothing now remains
but tlie sword. We have to face one
grim fact that the conflict that all Europe
has been dreading for thirty years Is at
last to be precipitated. We havo always
known thcro must come a day when di
plomacy would fall. Now that that dah
lias dawned, we must sc that it docs
not Involve the whole continent. Grave
though the present situation mav ho. it
may be graver still when the battles have
been lost and won."
Go Forth to Death.
Fron Constantinople. Ward Price, cor
respondent of the Dally Mail, wires:
"A thin gold crescent of a new moon
hangs over Stambonl tonight and bring:
with it a month that will sec the grim
havoc of war. It is the last moon that
many reservists will over sec. As Ihev
march they wall a high-pitched chant
that shrills above the cheers of tho crowd,
quavering, waving, falling, a war song."
John Banister of tlie Daily Mirror sendh
a story of the war conditions In Montene
gro: "I have seen Montenegro fighting for
hM- life at close quarters. During last
night I drove seventy miles through the
terrible mountainous roads between
Podgorltza and this Austrian port. Tht
splendid fighting spirit of the Montene
grins commands admiration, but the trag
edy of their inadequate equipment for
war Is appalling. Podgoritm Is upon the
verge of starvation. Nearly all tho men
are on tho firing line. Bread rosts a
shilling a loaf. Flour is scarce. There
are no bakers lo bake what there Is of it.
"Tho liens continue laving eggs, but
aro themselves diminishing. The govern
ment bought large quantities of maize in
the spring from Bulgaria, and this should
feed the army until the end of October.
Battle in Mountains.
"The fighting Is taking place on tlie
vasl mountain slopes. Any man lilt falls
nmong the rocks. There is no proper am
bulance servk-e to find the wounded anu
they lie where they fall. Ono of the
war heroines Is Mary Durham, a wai
correspondent, who has lived In Montane
gro twelve years and was proud, she told
me, to sec tho first gun II red on Wednes
day. "The price the nation is paying smoto
one's heart at tho hospital, where tiie
king's physician, Malanovuch. Is tolling
day and night, with one male assistant
and a few devoted women. I saw him
first yesterday, probing a wound of a mar.
of 02 who sat stripped to the waist, sup
ported by two other old men upon a table
In a room like a barn. Tho bullet was
found, extracted and tho wound dressed.
The man never fainted or groaned, but
his face glistened with agony. IIC had
been wounded two hours beforo and
brought In upon a horse. His case Is
hopeless.
"The doctor dealt with twelve cases in
an hour. I helped him will) tho bandages,
sponging whenever necessary. The con
trast between his modern skill and Hie
eighteenth century conditions in which he
worked was gruesome.
"There are no newspapers. Women
gather at the barracks to hear tho name
of the known dead and wounded. So
many men of tho same names are fight
ing that dreadful perplexity Is Inevitable."
Greek Note Received.
ATHENS, Oct. in. The Greek note to
Turkey was handed to the Turkish lega
tion tonight.

ATNI5NS, Oct. 13. The mobilization of
the Greek army Is proceeding rapidly. Al

Greeks urrlvlng daljy from abroad. A
large contingent already has reached here
from America. "With tlie recruits It Is
estimated that 170,000 soldiers can be

Servia's Reply Drafted
BELGRADE. Oct. 13. The cabinet
council has drafted Servia's reply to the
Russo-Austrhin note, nnd It will be de
livered tomorrow. The reply expresses
regret at Servia's inability to comply
with, tho terms of tho note, because the
Rnsso-Austrlan proposals fall to provide
guarantees for the execution of the pro
posed r" forms.
Simultaneously with the delivery of
this reply a memorandum will be present
ed to Turkey demanding autonomy for
certain provinces under control of the
Balkan states.
Start for Frontier.
LONDON. Oct. H. The movement or
tho Bulgarian army began Sunday, ac
cording to a Sofia dispatch to the Dally
Telegraph, trains proceeding toward the
frontier .-very two hours.
It Is reported that Christian soldiers
have deserted the Turkish army In a body
and that largo numbers are arriving at
Sofia. Tlie Servian troops, says the dis
patch, aro now in position and will move
next week
The hitch In tho negotiations between
Italy and Turkey, the Constantinople
correspondent of tho Telegraph asserts.
Is not serious, and a peace settlement
is believed to ho Imminent.
Furious Final Charge.
LONDON, Ocl. 14. A Podgorltza dis
patch to the Dally Mali says tho town of
Schlcerlk practically has been demolished
by the Montenegrin guns and that 230
Turks have, been taken prisoners. A
blockhouse at Arorazl has been leveled.
Describing the capture of Detchltch
mountain, a correspondent at the front
says the final charge of the Montenegrins
was so furious that the retreating Turks
had no time to disable their guns, and
they were actually fired at with their
own guns by the Montenegrins.
Tho noted Macedonian leader, Todor
Laznroff. committed suicide Friday, says
a Sofia dispatch, because the military
doctors refused to enroll him in the armv
because he was suffering from tubercu
losis. He left a letter saying he could
not remain behind to die in bed while
his brothers were fighting for llbertv.
The Incident has acted as a spur to
patriotism.
Turks Forced to Retire.
LONDON. Oct. II. Reports have
reached Cottln.lc. says a dispatch from
tlie Montenegrin capital to the Express,
that a tcrlble lint tie was waged Friday
evening, th Montenegrins attacking the
Turks at the foot of Shmlra mountain,
forcing them to retire with a loss of 300
men. The. Montenegrins took manv pris
oners. The casualty list on the Monte
negrin side Is estimated at 100 killed or
wounded,
Two Turkish gunboats on Lake Scutari
bombarded General Mortlnovleh's right
wing. The conflicting reports from the
Balkan capitals as to whether the reply
I to tlie powers and the note to TurkeV
would be delivered Sunday night or Mon
day appear to be due to the uncertainty'
of telegraphic connections. It Is explained
that the notes were handed to the re
spective legations lasl night and will be
dollvcred Monday.

THINKS ROOSEVELT
IS GAINING GROUND
Correspondent Surveys Four
Middle Western States With
Bull Moose Goggles.
PRESENTS THE LINEUP
j
Illinois and Michigan for Third
Party; Wisconsin Doubtful;
Minnesota Toward Wilson.
BY JOHN B. PRATT.
By International News Service.
CHICAGO. Oct. 13. If the presidential
election came this week, Colonel Roose
velt, in tho four states he touched In his
middle western Invasion the last week,
would likely mako a clean sweep of all
but one, with a fighting chance to get
that, too. As it looks to the Roosevelt
forces tonight, here is tho line-up in the
four states now:
Illinois and Michigan sure for Roosevelt.
Wisconsin doubtful, with prospects fa
voring Roosevelt.
Minnesota, doubtful, inclining toward
Wilson.
That Roosevelt has steadily gained
ground in the four states Is conceded by
tho Taft and Wilson managers. The Bull
Moose wave Is spreading over the entire
middle west If the Roosevelt forces can
keep It going and they are bending every
energy to keep the flame alive they count
upon a substantial yield of electoral votes
from this hotbed of Progresslvlsm.
Taft Is Gaining1.
In the far west, President Taft makes a
weak showing, In that region, as against
Roosevelt. Newspaper polls taken in var
ious cities In the central west seem to
Indicate that the president, In Minnesota
and Michigan, is alowly getting back Into
the race but he has a long way to go If
ho Is to overcome the tremendous lead
Roosevelt has acquired over him.
Every sign points to Taft finishing third
in the middle west. In Illinois and Wis
consin he is losing consistently as the
campaign passes Into the last three weeks
the critical period of the light.
All Roosevelt needs to do, If he Is to
carry Illinois and Michigan. Is to main
tain the advantage he has already gained
and keep up the feverish Interest that is
now manifested In his candidacy. If he
expects to carry Minnesota, he must
pound down the growing sentiment for
Wilson, which Is being helped by a split
In the Progressive ranks. Wilson ap
pears now to be practically certain of
putting Minnesota In the Democratic col
umn but th Progressives arc on his
heels, and a change may come In the next
three weeks that will turn the state
Roosevelt's way.
Curtails Itinerary.
To whip up the third party sentiment In
Wisconsin a sentiment that is unques
tionably potent, despite the efforts of
Senator La Follette to stamp out the
ex-president coos tomorrow to Milwaukee
Ills Wisconsin managers had him down
for other speeches in the state, but the
colonel's physician stepped in today with
the insistence that Roosevelt's voice must
rest If it Is to finish tho campaign. The
ox-porsldent spoke last night at the Col
iseum. During his visit the- colonel ran
Into wretched weather, and it affected
his voice badly. Not only, therefore, have
the Wisconsin engagements been cur
tailed, hul Gary. Ind.. anil other prospec
tive Indiana stops ho was scheduled to
make on his way to Milwaukee, have
been cut out. The Bull Moose candidate
wants to make a slashing fight in New
York state the last week of the battle,
and the schedules all along the line from
now until ho gets to New York will be
altered lo save the wear on his voice.
Sends Telegrams.
As the colonel rested here today, tele
grams were sent out to Kentucky. Mary
land, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Con
necticut, whero this trip ends, conveying
word that Roosevelt will make no more
than throe speeches In each state. In
Ohio and Indiana, where ho appears next,
week, It will be the same way. In Ohio.
Roosevelt will gn Into tho president's
own rty, Cincinnati. for a sizzling
speech, and thon make for Cleveland.
Wilson at Home.
By International News Service.
PRINCETON, N. J.. Ocl. 13. Governor
Woodrow Wilson today enjoyed tho quiet
of the academic town and the comfort
of his family circle In Princeton for the
first time In a fortnight. IIo eschewed
politics and read no newspapers, but slept,
thlrtocn hours, which was exactly the
length of time he usually sloops on tho
thirteenth day of the month. The lucky
number 13 Is still a part of tho presi
dential candidate's personality.
The governoor took a walk In the after
noon with Mrs. Wilson and his daughters
through the autumn-colored streets of
the town. Tomorrow he will dig Into neg
lected correspondence. Tuesday ho will
spend at the state house In Trenton, and
Wednesday he will start campaigning
again, making speeches in Delaware and
West Virginia and Pittsburg before going
to New York for the two big meetings
there on Saturday.
Roosevelt Losing.
By International News Service.
OMAHA. Neb., Oct. 13. Reports from
Democratic county chairmen In all parts
tof Nebraska show that Roosevelt Is rap
I Idly losing strength in this state. The
reports were received yeBterday and wore
! In answer to the question, "Is Roosevelt
I losing or gaining?"
Of thirty-seven answers from as many
counties, thirty-one say the Rooscvoll
(Sentiment is decreasing decidedly In those
I counties. Five are uncertain, and onlv
one of the thirty-seven says he Is gain

j Johnson Hopeful.
j COLUMBUS, 0-. Oct. 13. Governor
Johnson passed out of eastern tcrritorv
tonight, coming here to remain over
'night before starting his two-day tour of
Ohio at Springfield tomorrow afternoon.
The iiovornor was well pleased with his '
reception in tho cast.
"I am ilollghted with the large crowds
that came out to hear me and with the
cordial treat, lent I received," he said.
"The size, of my audiences Impressed me
much because of my being a stranucr: 1
feci that there is a great interest in the
cause for which we arc working rather
than in its leaders."
Church Howe Hetircs.
AUBURN. Neb.. Oct. 13 Church Howe,
American consul at Manchester. England,
who has been spending his vacation at

I his post in England, it was announced
here tonight. The department at Wash

BATTLE RAGES 1
WYOMING PB1S1
(Continued From Pago One.)
almost Impassable stretch of rocky coun
try between here and tho Colorado line.
Until nightfall, a running battle was kept
up, and at a lato hour tonight occanlonal
volleys of shote ln tho distance told or
tho progrcHB of the man hunt,
Just beforo nightfall six convicts were
locatod ln a canyon about a mile eouth
of Rawlins. Twenty deputies, each armed
with two revolvers and a repeating ri
fle, were sent out to capture or kill them.
Tho deputies reached tho spot and found
Ihe convicts barricaded, ready for bat
tle. Waiting for Daylight.
Deciding thai an attack in the dark waa
too dangerous, the officers surrounded the
desperadoes' stronghold, and will wait for
daylight before closing ln. In the mean
time a search of the town was made. One
convict was found hiding in a cabooso in
the railroad yards. Citizens overpowered
the guards who were taking him, heavily
Ironed, back to tho penitentiary, but the
arrival of more guards prevented a lynch
ing. The men wero hiiHtled Into tho prison.
Some time later John Chllds captured an
other convict in Ills collar.
While most of the penitentiary guards
were pursuing the convicts who fled to
the hills, the small body left ln the
prison faced a still more desperate situa
tion. Riot in Prison.
Whon the doors of the cells were un
locked, a Large number of convicts who
did not Join in the break for liberty were
set free Inside the wallB. MAny of them
were armed. Soon a Hot was in pro
gress, tho guards battling desperately to
save their own lives and prevent the
encape of every convict In the Institu
tion. The gates have remained locked,
and no definite word has been received
regarding the evonts within. The report
that several men have been killed has
not been confirmed. Tho citizens, how
ever, believe the situation critical, and
the determination to post a heay guard
outside the walls was reached when it
became apparent that, the mutinous pris
oners had not been subdued, and it was
believed the town was in imminent dan
ger of attack.
Reign of Terror.
Persons coming Into town from the
south bring stories of a reign of terror
in the country districts. AVord has been
sent to ranches within a radius of sev
eral miles warning tho owners to defend
their property, Several parties who went
south today on horseback or ln car
riages returned tonight afoot, their horses
having been stolen bv the ronvIcV.
The escapes of today and yesterday ap
pear to be the result of a general plot in
side the prison. It Is not known how the
prisoners who made their break for lib
erty this afternoon got the guns with
which they were well supplied when they
dashed from the gates. It Is possible, the
local officers believe, that they killed a
number of guards after overpowering the
ccU'nouse keeper, and took their weapons.
Another theory is that the guns were
smuggled into the prison by friends of tho
men who escaped yesterday.
Warden in the Hills.
Warden Alston has been ln the hills
since last night, and has not been locat
ed, although couriers were sent out to
night to tell him of the events of tho
day. The deputy warden said tonight
that he did not know the exact number
of men who escaped.
It Ib believed that the ringleaders ln the
jail dollvory are some of the men who

CHEYENNE REPORT
IS LESS ALARMING
CHEYENNE, Wyo.. Oct. 13. An offi
cial statement of tho prison break at
Rawlins was Issued from the governor's
office at S:30 tonight. The statement
minimizes the danger of the sltuotlon,
'and varies In some particulars from the
accounts sent direct from the scene of
the outbreak. It follows:
"Eight convicts escaped from the Raw
lins prison this afternoon. In a running
battle one convict was killed. The con
victs rushed somo citizens who carried
guns, bound for trap shooting grounds,
killed one citizen and took four guns.
They have scattered, going south.
"Warden Alston was not at the peni
tentiary when this delivery occurred, be
ing out with posses liuntlnjr tho convicts
who escaped yesterday. The mayor of
Rawlins asked permission from tho gov
ernor's office to surround the walls of
tho penitentiary with a cordon of armed
citizens. The governor, being out of
town, was reached by telephone ono hour
and a half after the reports reached the
governor's office. Ho at once authorized
the mayor of Rawlins to surround the
prison if he deemed It wise, with citizens,
as requested. He also directed the dep
uty warden at the penitentiary to lock
all the convicts in their cells and keep
them there until the return of Warden
Alston.
"The first reports that reached the
governor's office made it appear that
many more convicts had escaped than
tho actual number It was at first
thought that mlHtia would therefore be
necessary. Company K at Laramie was
therefore ordered by Colonel V. K. Hart,
commanding the national guard, to be
ready to go to Rawlins on notice. The
company was assembled and ln waiting.
I,ater reports, showing that conditions
were not as serious as first reported,
caused the covernor to cancel the militia
arrangements. Governor Carey is ex
pected homo tomorrow."
The last report of the ward.cn of the
penitentiary showed a total of 360 con
victs confined.
Warden Has Good Record.
Felix Alston, warden of Wyoming's
slate penitentiary, was appointed by Gov
ernor Joseph M. Carey two years ago. At
the ttme of his appointment he was
sheriff of Big Horn county, and known
as a fearless officer. On his record in
the Big Horn country he was appointed
bv Governor Carey. There was no In
vestigation of tho importance of tlie
lynching at the penitentiary of the negn.
Wigfall on October 1. Secretary of State
Frank Houx went to Rawlins a few days
after the lynching and was there for two
days. He is a member of the board of
pardons nnd paroles. The board met here
last Monday and Warden Alston was

affair.
