the restaurant owner, and one Nichols, a
gambler. The trouble originated over
a gambling debt incurred in Mexico
and for the collection of which said
Nichols had Carpenter arrested. By
dint of some hard sprinting Carpenter
outran the Mexican officers and escaped
across the line. On Saturday morning
Carpenter met Nichols on the street
and after applying a few titles better
left imprinted whacked him over the
head with a six shooter. Constable
McAlmond disarmed the aggressor and
trouble seemed to be over. Later the
two combatants met when Nichols
promptly knocked Carpenter down.
Bob Davis then proffered his services as
peace maker and with the aid of the
constable the quiet was restored. There

said that arrests will follow.
