The prospects for a heavy litigation
over the Circle ranch property and cat

United States Cattle Ranch Co. , " who
purchased the ranch and cattle from Mr.
Wilson , about one year ago. We know
none of the circumstances connected
with the affair , which have brought the
proceedings to their present status , but
to a man on the fence it is very appar
ent that "Billie" Wilson has the best of
the situation , having possession ot the
cattle and the money already received
from the English company over$100-
000. All the old employes of the Circle
Ranch have been paid up and discharg
ed. Ed. Wilson , who has been general
manager , being succeeded by Rainy
Bishop of Denver. It is understood that

to Arizona. The case promises to be a
complicated one , unless the parties in
