New York, Nov. n. The horse show

off quiet I y.
Chevenne, Wvo.. Nov. L'0. Hundreds
of militia guarded the jail last nisiif.
and rapid-fire guns frowned from the
windows and ramparts of the prison
on the various approaches. The sher
iff and scores of deputies aiso were
alert and apprehensive. All these
glim precautions were taken to pre
vent the threatened rescue of Thomas
Horn, the desperate murderer under
sentence to be hanged today. Kven
deputies from surrounding counties
were called on. and (iov. t hattertou
himself was on the ground to lend hi
presence and influence to upholding
the law. In the face of this bets of
$.10 and $1(1(1 were made at even mon
ey that Horn would not hang.
I nt there was one man apparently
more determined than others that
Horn should not escape ihe gallows.
This man was William Xickell, the
aged father of the victim so savagely
shot down by Horn. Night and day
for two weeks the sturdy old cattle
man had paraded before ihe prioii.
declaring that it is only over his dead
body that Horn should be liberated,
lie was still at his post. and. though
other persons, awed by the military
display and 'warned by official procla
mations of impending danger. have,
kept away from the jail. Nickel was
not to be moved.
Horn's crime was the killing of
young William Niekell in Itlue Springs
Valley. Wyoming, last duly. Nickell's
father owned land thai, as alleged,
the cattle barons wanted, and. find
ing it impossible to make the old man
relinquish his claim, decided lhat ihe
murder of his son might possibly
drive him from the countr.v. Horn was
hired to do the job. and. though in
earlier da s the older Niekell had
befriended him. he' eagerlv undertook
the desperate contract. He secreted
himself about 00 yards from Nickell's
house behind a pile of brush, and
when the young man appeared took
careful aim and fired. The bullet made
a fearful wound, but no! suflicicnt to
unhorse the victim, who turned 1o
ward home, and with his remaining
strength urged his horse to a gallop.
Horn followed with desperate speed.
Stopped by Fence.
A wire fence a few yards from the
house prevented the escape- of the
wounded youth. He 1hrev himself
irom the horse to unfasten a gale,
but was so weak from loss of blood
that this took much time. The gate
finally yielded, but passing through
it, Niekell tripped on the wire and fell.
Ilefore lie could recover the heartless
murderer was upon hiir."."'. he defense
less Imiv made a gallant struggle, but.
it was useless. Horn iired again with
Ids rifle almost at the ear of the vic
tim, and virtually blew off his head.
Then he turned the victim's body so
that the sun should shine on its front
and coolly rode away.
