An Angry Mob Abroad.
Men are marching through the city with
clubs and pistols and the street in front of
the police station is lined with people.
There is great excitement and the mob is
an angry one. A man named McDonough,
of West Troy, attempted to vote in the
First ward and had his head split open by
a policeman's club. William Henry, can
diilate for Mipervisor in the Fourth ward,

normal Democratic majority.
Special lt aaTlicy I'lease.
When the polls opened yesterday morn
ing Uarside had the inspectors, Gorman
the police, and Strong the support of the
voters. To offset what the inspectors
might do the Gormnn police board ap
pointed about I'M special officer and these
did about as they plensnl. Repeaters had
a glorious time and so long as they voted
the right ticket were certain of immunity.
Rows were frequent during the day, but
no one was very seriously hurt.
Tried to Sieze the Ballots.
A heavy vote was polled and at sunset,
when the polls closed, the regular and
special police on duty in the First and
Fourth wards boldly entered the polling
places and sought to take the ballot boxes.
In the First ward they encountered unex
pected resistance of so vigorous and strong
a character that they desisted. In three
of the four districts the police grabbed the
boxes and walked away.
Thrown Through a Window.
In the Third district Inspectors Kelly,
Niver and Ball resisted and they were
seized and thrown bodily through the win
dow. The police marched off with the
boxes, followed by an immense crowd. In
each district missiles were thrown and
revolvers drawn. Four wards have been
counted as follows: Strong, Republican,
1,273; Gorman, 984, and Garside, tr. The
Fourth ward is nominally Republican.

Denver, April 13. A spe ial from Buf
falo, Wyo., contains meagre parti ulara of
a fight at the K. C. ranch between rustlers
and cattlemen. It ays: "The first in
formation in Buffalo of the trouble was a
letter received from Douglas to Sheriff
Angus, of Johnson county, saying that a
special tra n of armed and mounted men
had passed through Douglas, unloading
at Casper. They circuited the town and
started in this direction. Late in the
afternoon a ranchman named Smithy,
living on Xorth Fork Powder river rode
to Crazy Woman with this information.
Early in the morning he heard shooting at
ihe K. C. ranch. He went there; saw that
the regulators had the house surrounded,
and that a fight was going on between
them and the iumat s. Immediately he
left for help; . ante to Crazy Woman,
started half a dozen men to the rescue,
changed hoises and came to Buffalo.
The Sheriff After the Stockmen.
Sheriff Augus was notified of the situa
tion and appealed to for protection. With
in half an hour he was swearing in'deputies
pl at 9 p. m., a posse left Buffalo for the
K. C. ranch battle ground, reaching there
before daylight, but not until after the
regulators had conquered and gone. Jack
Flagg, who has been notorious with
others as a leader of the rustlers was a few
lays ago elected a delegate to the Demo
cratic state convention. He was on his
way there intending to stop that night at
the K. C. ranch, meeting Robert Foote,
Cole Brown and other delegates at Powder
River last night. FlagK and a boy named
Taylor drove up to K. C. ranch just after
So Lack of Grit in Uhkr.
Flagg started for the house, leaving
Taylor busy at the wagon. Xearing the
building he saw several mounted men.
He supposed they were a friendly cow
party and when they ordered him to throw
his hands up he replied jokingly; "(io to
hell." In reply a rifle was levelled and a
bullet sped past hi head. Flagg had a
1 rifle and three shells at the wagou, but
no nrms on his person. Running there he
grablwd the gun and held the attacking
party while the boy cut the traces. Then
the two leaped on their horses and fled
wfcly through the fusillade, being fol
lowed a considerable way.
Two of the Hustler Killed.
They reached Harris ranch on Crazy
Woman creek unhurt and started north,
joining the sheriff's jmissb from Buffalo.
When the resiling party reached the K. 4
ranch on their return they found the house
burned and the dead bodies of the inmates,
who were discovered to be Nate Clutmbion
nd Dick Ray. half burned in the ruins.
After Flagg got away the regulators' tired
his wagon and run it again-t the house,
firing it, and then killing the two men
that bad stood them off all day long.

the fight and taken to Buffalo. Couriers

the rustlers and stockmen, who have taken
refuge at T. A. ranch. The ranch is sur
rounded by an armed force of fully 300
men. Firing has continued steadily since
Monday morning. Sheriff Angus went

He theu rode towanl the ranch and

beat a hasty retreat when they opened
fire on him. List night the she iffs posse
was camped around the ranch and will
try to capture it today. The wire are
down and a man who attempted to repair
them was promp ly shot at.

The fight has. figuratively speaking,
only just commenced. The attack of the
stockmen was so sudden and unexpected
that the rustlers had not time to organize.
They have now been warned and are
flocking to the scene of trouble. It is
thought that the. next fight will be the
hloodiest of all. The invading party are
mostly cowboys and know every foot of the
country in which they are fighting. It is
rapidly growing colder and snow is begin
ning to fall. This will cum pel the rustlers
to seek shelter.
