a year ago, and ran off with his broth

who killed a widow named Hoover at

she refused to marry him, were
lynched at Basin, Wyo. C. K. Pierce,
a deputy sheriff, was killed during the
attack on th. Jail.
State of Lawleiioeu Prevails.
A state of lawlessness now prevails
In northern Wyoming, as a result of
which all law and order seems to have
been abolished. From President Mof

Telephone company, who is now mak
ing a tour of inspection of liisr com

lynching, and of an appeal for help
from Sheriff Fentou. of Rig Horn

prominent cattle men neir Therniopo

Wyoming for assistance of the militia
in getting his prisoners to the Basin.
Murderer Escape and Is Recaptured.
It was reported to Sheriff Fenton
hist Wednesday morning that a mob
was coming up to Basin from Hlatts
ville and Tonslip for the purpose of
lynching (lorman and Walters. As a
measure of precaution the sheriff twok
these two men and a horse thief out
of the jail and secreted them in a gul
ley near town under guard of Depu
ty Sheriffs Felix Alston und C. K.
Pierce. (Jorman managed to slip his
handcuffs and make his escape. Ho
swam the Big Horn river, an unpre
cedented feat, and made for the moun
tains. A posse of seven men quick
ly organized, and tlorman was re
captured about tifty miles from Basin.
Ml'llDER OF IRK UEPCXY SHERIFF
Wanton Volley Fired Into the Jail Kills
llim Where's the Greet State?"
At night a mob of about tifty un
masked men rode up the east bank
of the Big Horn and compelled the
ferryman to carry them across the riv
er. Ther made no demonstration un
til they entered Basin, when five shots
were hied as a warning. The mob
proceed d at once to the connty Jail
and tired a volley into the jail. Depu
ty Pierce and Special Deputy Meade
were guarding the prisoners at the
time. One bullet grazed Meade's
shoulder and entered Pierce's heart.
Members of the mob then tore up
the telephone poies and battered the
jail doors down. They first came to
Walters, who was crouched in his cell
piteous-ly begging for mercy. Walters
was shot Instantly. The mob next
found Cornmn, whose body was pierced
by five hulluts and he was left pre
sumably dead. He lingered, however,
lor a few hours.
A still more alarming state of af
fairs Is reported from the vicinity of
Tliermoiolis. About six weeks ago,
as a result of the range feud that has
been so bitterly waged, a sheep man,
Ben Minnick, was killed by cattle
men. The (sheriff, it is asserted, has
captured the murderers, who are all
prominent cattlemen. and whose
names have been withheld owing to
threats made against him. Sheriff
Fenton is unable to get his prison
ers to Basin.
It is said that Ihe same mob that
lynched Oorman and Walters are sym
pathizers, and have declared that Sher
iff Fenton will never get out of the
locality alive with his prisoner. Sher
iff Fenton has wired the governor of
Wyoming for permission to use the
state militia at Lander, und has also
sent a telephone message to Basin and
other towns asking for volunteers' to
assist him iu upholding the law.
Everywhere hardy westerners are
rescinding to the call, arming them
selves and hastening toward Thermo
polis. It is probable the militia will
be ordered to the scene and a bloody
battle may be fought. The country
about Thermopolis is a wild and law
less one. The last message from Sher
iff Fenton said he still held the pris
oners, and that he believed he could
hold out until reinforcements came.

Indianapolis. July 2i. (lovernor
Durbin held a long conference with
several othVers of the National Guard
over the recent discharge of members

it was agreed that something would
have to lo dore to protect men who
we; e willing to serve the state, both
from loss of i-ositions nnd from the.
opjosition 1o the militia by the laltor
unions. Captain II. M. Franklin, of
company II. declared that if a man
cannot respond to the call of his state
without imperiling his means of mak
ing a. living it will not be long until a.
condition of anarchy will exist.
As a result of the attorney general's
investigation, a statute has been found
which will apply to persons who dis
charge employes for belonging to the
militia. The statute makes it a feder
al offense to discharge a militiaman
liecause of his service with the state,
and provides both for fine and impris
