gaged in the fight are Culbertson
Trenton. Some time ago the supreme
court issued an injunction restraining the
removal of the records from Culbertson, but
Sunday night an armed force raided Cul
bertson and took the books. Trenton peo
ple claim that books alleged to have been
token were Treasurer Benjamin's private
property which he had a right to take. But
citizens of Culbertson say he took the rec
ords of his office. At any rate half the
county officials are doing business in Tren-
and the other half in Culbertson.
Difficult to Find State Officers.
Governor Boyd is out of the state, and j
Secretary Morrissey wired Acting Governor
T. J. Majors the situation and asked him
to come to Lincoln. General Vifquain
made arrangements to put the militia in
the field at once, bnt at 1 p. m. no word
had been received from Lieutenant Gover
nor Majors. It is understood that a collis
ion between the rival factions took place
yesterday at Culbertson, but that no one
was killed, although shots were exchanged.
H1 to Leave at Political Meeting.
Private Secretary Morrisey succeeded in
reaching Acting Governor Majors last
night and explained by telegraph the
tronble at Culbertson. Governor Majors
at once ordered Adjutant General Vifquain
to the scene of the trouble. Gen. Vifquain,
who is t he Fourth district Democratic candi
date for congress, was addressing a meet
ing at Exeter when Governor Majors' or
der reached him. He explained the situa
tion to his auditors, and at once left for the
scene of the trouble. Governor Majors did
not reach here before 1 a. m. today.
Troops Keady to Move.
Secretary Morrisey and Attorney General
Hastings are in consultation at the state
bouse. Mr. Morrisey, who has orders from
the governor to do all necessary to preserve
the peace, says the militia will go today un
less the situation changed last night. The
militia companies of Beatrice, Kearney,
Omaha and Lincoln were at their armories
last night ready to move at a moment's no
tice. In addition to this the Omaha gat
ling section was in readiness to move.
Doth Towns I'nder Arms.
Private advices from Culbertson last
night were that the whole town was un
der amis guarding the remaining records
against removal by force and that the
Trenton people were armed against any
move to capture the records now in their
city. Trenton scoffs at the idea of order
ing the militia out, but Culbertson de
mands it. For county seat wars in this
state point to a bitter and bloody battle be
fore the matter is adjudicated.

A Story of Retributive Justice That Is

Boise City, Idaho, Oct. 4. It is not
often that retributive justice conies so
swiftly to a would-lx; murderer as it did to
George Penfield, a miner, whose body was
buried last 'Wednesday near Grouse creek.
There are two stories concerning his death.
One is that, actuated by a desire to
One Thousand Head of Cattle Ferish
Three Men Fatally Itnrned.
Boise City, Ida., Oct. 4. In the great
prairie fire that raged last week in the Bear
river valley more than 1,000 head of fat
kittle were burned to death, nine houses
and four cabins burned and three herds
men fatally injured. The cattle were feed
ing in a small valley on Tuesday last. A
strong wind suddenly blew a sea of fire
lown upon them. Before they could turn
the maddened animals the herd ws sur
rounded by flames. The cattle then hud
dled in the middle of a clearing almut a
mile square in extent, but despite the ef
forts of the ecu-boys they again stampeded.
; Many of them dashed into t he midst of the
. flames, where they perished in horrible
K Kacape From the Circle.
To save their lives the four cowlxys who
; were within the fierce circle attempted to
. force their horses through a narrow belt

owned jointly by himself, Thomas Jovce
William Bramlett and Theodore Bragg,"he
dosed a bottle of whisky with strychnine,
and then before his associates had
swallowed any of the fatal draught went
in the dark for a drink and picked up the

The Story That Is Relieved.
Another story, and the -one that is gener
ally believed, is that two of Penfields
partners drank small quantities of t he poi
soned whisky and became sick. As they
had long known that Penfield was a bad
man, and as he had recently purchased
poison, they accused him of having tam
pered with tie liquor. He vehemently de
nied the charge, but refused to partake of
the doctored whisky. Then his three part
ners drew their "revolvers and compelled
him to drink. He did not hesitate when
the pistols were leveled at his head and
after he had taken a big drink he started
to leave the cabin in which the men were
He Will Re Somewhat Missed.
He walked down behind a dump and,
running his linger down his throat, en
deavored to produce vomiting. Before he
succeeded in doing so the strychnine com
menced to work, and he died in convul
sions. Bramlett and Bragg at first admit
ted that the latter story was true, but as
they learned that the matter was to be in
vestigated they asserted that Penfield's
death was due to his own carelessness.
Penfield had a record of having killed sev
enteen men. '
HAD A FIGHT IN A SEWER.
Novel Course a Pickpocket Took to Get
Away from Officers.
St. Loris, Oct. 4. On Saturday night
last, John Wiggins, a Chicago crook, was
detected picking the pocket of a lady at
Sixth and Pine streets. Officers Dundan
and Cole gave chase, wad Wiggins to avoid
them boldly leaped, down the manhole of
the sewer at Sixth and Clark avenue. Dun
dan followed him and Cole ran on to the
next manhole to intercept Wiggins if he
tried to emerge. When Cole raised the
lid of the manhole and bent over to listen
he heard tht) men scuffling below in the
darkness and descended to find Dundan
engaged in a flight with Wiggins. The
Crook was clubbed into submission and
