Arkansas City, Ks., April 8.
Officials ;of the Santa Fe railroad are
bnsy investigating the story that the
boomers had banded together for the
purpose of destroying railroad bridges
on tne nignt 01 April i, in oruer to
obstruct the influx of homesteaders until
those concealed in the country could
make penect tneir claims, it appears
that the boomers in, biding are desnar
ate. They have selected and watohed
their claims for years, and they now
fear that now comers, with assistance
of rapid transit, may get the best of
them. There was a meeting of these
boomers held in the timber near Okla
homa City, last Thursday, and they
canvassed the situation. After the
meeting adjourned, the Santa Fe agent
received notieo that tbe bridges would
be burned and trains stopped April 22.
Detectives have been sent along the
line through the country, and every
precaution will be taken to prevent
railway obstruction. There are twioe
as many people now on the borders as
can bo accommodated under the home
stead aot in Oklahoma.

feet east ol the house, the man made
no reference to the alleged soheme, but

suspicions, and he was careful to keep
his visitor in front of him. After
wandering around the garden for a half
hour or more Hickman quickly drew a
revolver from his hip pooket without
making any demand or uttering a word
of warning fired.
