kets slowed up a little on receipts
today, which improved the demand
here. Dealers are advising
customers who have cattle on

broke 25 to 50 cents last week,

show signs of dwindling, and
prices will strengthen in that
event. Feeding lambs have been
selling at 5.40 to 5.85, and dealers
think them cheap at those figures,

The appeal is made on the
ground that the court erred in
charging the jury as to the law,

Thurston & Babbitt made the
first shipment of steers Sunday
numbering over 300 head. Part
of them went to California for
beef and the balance to Phoenix
as feeders. There were cattle
belonging to a number of other
parties in the shipment.
The recent snow and rain did
considerable damage to ranchers.
Many of them had their hay and
grain down but not protected from
the weather. The loss will not be
a total one by any means, but will
result in a heavey loss. The

FAMOUS CATTLE STEALING
CASE JPfflOi YAVAPAI
An appeal in the famous cattle
stealing case against W. V. Webb
of Anvil Rock in Yavapai county,
in which he was convicted at a re
cent term of the Yavapai county
superior court, was filed by Reese
M. Ling, attorney for Webb, in
the supreme court of the state
yesterday morning. The case was
tried before Judge Frank O.Smith
with P. W.'O'Sullivan acting as
district attorney on May 12 of this
year, but since Associate Justice
H. D. Ross of the supreme court
was the district attorney who
drew the indictment and presented
the facts before the grand jury a
year previous to the trial, he will
likely disqualify in this case and a
superior court judge will be called
to sit upon the bench with the
two remaining supreme court
members to look into the merits
of the appeal.
Webb was indicted for stealing
cattle at the May term of the dis
trict court of the Territory of Ari
zona after the cattle inspectors
and several deputy sheriffs had
visited his place and dug up hides
which were alleged to have been
the property of the J. W. Sullivan
Cattle, Land and Water company.
The indictment read as for only
one head of meat cattle, but the
deputies dug up quite a number
of hides, and it was stated that
some seventy or eighty cattle had
been missed from the Sullivan
