COUNTY DEFIEDBY FARMER
Declares War on Road Overseer
Gould and All of His Allies.
SKIRMISHING HAS BEEN BEGUN

and Defies Anronr to Slake
Htm More It Hark.
War has been declared RKalust Road
Overseer M. p. fcould ot Benton by U.
Sniper, an employe of J. Latlook, a
dairy farmer of Keystone Tark. it mile
and a half west of Benson. Gould called
to his aid County Commissioner August
C. Harte, chairman of the roads and
bridges committee, llarlc nppealed to
Kcputy County Attorney Oconto A. Mac
ncy. The courts will bo called upon for
uccor. General Harte said the allies will
move upon Sniper before nightfall and
deputy sheriffs wilt storm the outer bat
tlements of Keystone Park with a rc
Tho war broke out when Gould with a
small force of men went to Keystone
park wtlh the avowed intention of remov
ing or setting back a fence, which Com
missioner Harto says incloses a part of
the public road leading west from Hen
son. There was a spirited -crbnl en
gagement Between Gould and Sniper,
who was sent to defend the fence. Sniper's
ablest exponents of the art of equatorial
friends look upon him as one ot the
diction west of Chicago; Gould Is no
mean "cusser" himself.
Taken Vv Ynrt of Itnnd.
It seems that the fence which separates
X.aBook's fann from tho road Incloses
not only tho farm, but a couplo of feet
of the road. In order that this thorough
faro 'may be Inlproved Commissioner
Harte wanted Laliool; to set back the
fence. Labook didn't want to do It. Com
missioner Harto Induced Deputy County
Attorney Maguey to give Lallook official
written notice that he must set back tho
fence. LaUook Ignored the notice, so
Iload Overseer Gould started operations.
When Gould arrived Snlpor stood by
the fence and tho fire of defiance blazed
in his eyes. Ho announced that there
would be several things transpiring If
anybody laid unfriendly hand on that
fenco because he was going to maintain
Its Integrity or "bust a gallus."
Heavy Ordnance I'lantril.
Gallui Or no gallus, Gould said, tho
fence should be moved. After some
verbal maneuvering for position and ad
vantage the road overseer and the dairy
farmer brought up all their ordnance and
tho battle was on. Volley after volley
and broadside nfter broadside wcio
belched forth. Grapo and cannlster rat
tled like coal sliding down the chute.
When It seemed that Sniper was
about to conquer, having Bcored eighteen
or twenty moro simple swear words and
half a dozen more compound ones than
his opponent, Gould picked up a shovel,
raised It above his head and advanced
upon Sniper. Sniper stood still with his
hands In his pockets and didn't seem a
bit "scared." Tho nonchalance with
which ho saw the overseer como at
him set the overseer to thinking He de
duced that Sniper must be armed with
a sword, bodkin, pike, broadax, Javelin,
lance, rapier, stiletto, billy, blackjack,
bludgeon, belaying pin or other deadly
weapon or weapons. No man unarmed
could look into the muzzle of an upraised
shovel and nor flinch; wince, -shudder or
something. Ho might hot quail, but he
ut least 'would duck! If ho didn't, he
-would be a bird.
So Gould retired in good ordar. There
being no policeman In sight, he hastened
to a telephone, get Commissioner Harte
on tho wire and told his troubles to him.
Harto ordered Gould not to renew has
tllltlcs until aid could be secured from
the court. Then ho got Mr. Magney and
they planned to go to court for an order
restraining LaBook from Interfering with
the setting back of the fence.
Bear, but Shies at
The knowledge that three escaped con
victs of the Wyoming penitentiary were
roaming about the Jackson Hole vicinity,
caued II. K. Fredrickson of Omaha to
change his ptans In regard to bear hunt
ing In that locality. Predrlckson left
that neighborhood without a single bear,
although he left Omaha with tho Inten
tion of getting a bear, or maybe Severn!
The Laramie Republican ot November
IS says that when Fredrickson heard of
some of tho pranks of the convicts In I
the near vicinity of where ho was hunt-
Ing he at once, decided there were none
too many bears anyway and ho did not
want one as badly ns he had Rt flrpt
---' .., ,1.1 f"l W i if! " I
he wrote to friends In Omaha, telling of
Ills hunt, but mentioning no bar to his
credit,, as yet. He. however, said he I
had. killed two elk and could have killed
a dozen more had It not been tor the
limitation of tho gamn tawi He could not
bring the carcasses ot tho elk down from
the mountains, but left them to be
brqught down to the railroad by wagon.
Mr. Fredrickson said tho escaped con
victs made no attempt to conceal their
Identity and In fact raided sheep camps
at wl)l. At one placo they exchanged
clothing with the ranchers and took some
supplies to last them several days.
