Smimn mmunmi Over to the Distrtit Court
The preliminary examination of Sam
Sims, charged with stealing cattle at Box
Elder, took place Tuesday morning be
fore Judge Race. The state placed on
the stand J. N. Cutright, Willis Leach,
E. G. Mueller, Martin Erhardt, W. It.
Dwyer and C. L. Johnson, and their
testimony went so strongly against the
prisoner that the judge overruled the
motion of Sims' attorney to dismiss the
case and bound him over to the district
court in $500 bail. The defense did not
attempt to introduce any evidence.
After the hearing, Martin Erhardt,
who had been released at the time the
case first came up in the court, the
county attorney believing that there
was no evidence implicating him in the
cattle stealing, was rearrested and will
probably be examined today. It is
claimed that additional evidence has
been discovered which shows him to
have been connected with the case more
directly than was at first supposed.
Alleged Freight Tlilevee.
Monday night the police were notified
by the propretors of the Arcade restau
rant that a couple of men had been at
their place of business and offered to
sell them a chest of tea and also some
hams. Their appearance and actions
were so suspicious that it was thought
by the parties who run the restaurant
that the goods must have been stolen.
l Acting under the direction of the police
the young ladies who run the restaurant
told the men to bring the tea and they
would look at it, and at a late hour in
the night the two men appeared with a
chest of tea and were immediately ar
rested. The story they told was to the
effect that they found the tea in the
alley way back of the Globe theater.
Inquiry at the freight office showed
that the seal of a car of mixed groceries
- had been broken, and the car entered
and a chest of tea, consigned to Silver
i man & Cohen of Choteau, had been ab
stracted. On closer examination of the
captured chest of tea the police dis
covered that it was addressed to S. & C.,
t Choteau, and was the same one stolen
from the car.
The man who gave his name as James
Conners, said he had been working at
t Armington for William McCurdie,
I the roadmaster on the Neihart branch,
and had been paid off a couple of
weeks ago, since which time he
had been in town. His pal, George
Lincoln was less communicative about
himself and beyond saying that he had
been working in Belt and Neihart had
little to say.
The police feel sure that they have a
good case against both men and the
county attorney will prefedia charge of
burglary against them. They will be
arraigned on this charge before Judge
3 Hawkins today.
t A wii.I MAN.
Two Glssgow Hunters Who Bear No se
semiblance to George WVashington.
One of the most thrilling adventures
that ever frozo the marrow in human
bones was esperienced by Lee Cook and
Mac Hunter while out deer hunting on
the Ninth point of the Missouri river
That section of the country is as wild
and barbaric as when the bloodthirsty
Sioux roamed over it thirty years ago.
Civilization's magnetic hand has never
robbed it of its wildness.
The sun had just sunk into his bed of
glory and twilight was coming on as
they were returning on their horses
through the dense underbrush. A loud
unearthly cry rang in their ears and the
horses, territled, almost leaped from un
der them. Directly in front of them,
not ten feet distant, a man just as free
from clothing e.s was Adam before he
donned the fig-leaf, sprung and bounded
away with the fleetness of an antelope.
As soon as they recovered from the
start his yell and appearance implanted
in them, they put spurs to their horses
and a mad chase ensued. Over holes
that made wells look like slight undu
lations the man leaped and the horses
followed hot after him. Up hills and
down over cut banks and through dia
mond willows that seemed impenetrable
the chase went on. Despite the fleetness
of the horses, the riders were unable to
lessen the distance. Several times did
they attempt to rope him, but the thick
ness of the brush made their attempts
After a race of five miles the pursued
rushed over the bank leading to the
river and, without checking his speed,
jumped into the muddy and treacherous
waters of the river. Ile swam with the
ease and grace of a water fowl. This
checked, his pursuers watched him until
he reas-ed the opposite bank of the
river and disappeared froni view. In
describing the man, Cook said:
"l)antes, in imagination's most dys
peptic and melancholly moments, never
conceived of Satan being so hideous and
grotesque an object. flis body was per
fectly nude, with not so rinch as a
breach-loth to hide his shame. Ilair
long enough to go into the plasterer's
mortar hung from his te ly in tiatteid
bunches. Wheiskers anti hair with him
were more plentiful than the nine on
the trees at the equator. asesau. in all
his howhiskeredness, would have ac
knowledlged he was as hall as a marble
comparei with limi. The hair was also
white over his bily. fIts finger nails
resemitled the claws of siime carnivorous
anoial.. flis eyes wire almost obscured
by his heavy eihirows and shot 'forth
the gleamn of a ticir at iay."
About two years ago oni of the oil
timers living on the Missouri says he saw
a moan runnihg through the brush. His
discription of him is similar to that of
Mr. Cook's. Where the man citme from
is a mystery. From the description it is
judged that he has been running thrt.ctgh
the forests for a number of years. It is
supposed he subsists on herbs and the
carcasses of dead animals, but this is
C party is now lieing organized to
capture him, and if they are successful
the dime museuns of the country will be
revived by this strange creature.-alloy
