S (pecial to Inter Mountain.) Fort Benton, Feb. 24.-With the killing of "Long Henry" Thompson, by Ed Shufelt In a Saco saloon, the mys:ery of the killing of Sherlff Young of Park county in December, 1899, was cleared up. An intimate friend of Thompson, Who war a noted gun fighter, made a drunken boast on Thursday last at 1S ta that "If Shufelt's first shot had not paralysed Henry's shooting arm, he'd been fixed like the sheriff was at Springdale." / When taunted w!Jh the remark that ho "didn't have the papers for his talk," Thompson's friend gave the particulars, which were, that the dead desperado had shot a man in a card game and jumped out, that a l.ort time later, about two days, he was at Spring dale depot when the deputy sheriff threw a gun uown on him while the sheriff walked across the platform to put the irons on him. ,1. Got Away on Foot. Henry then drew and badly wounded the deputy sheritt and killed the sheriff. He got away on foot and before morning took a horse out of a field and rode it to Nye, on the head of the Stillwater, where he had friends. He then turned the horse loose and got a fresh one an'd a snddle anlld went to Trabing, Wyo., where he stayed a few days before starting back to Valley county. This story is implicitly believed by the few who have heard it, as the killing would be easy for Thompson, who could shoot with marvelous ac curacy and draw as quick as any man ever did. He was away from home at the time in question, and was supposed to be on Shields river. Another thing Ia, that the description of the sheriff's murderer fits "Long Hlenry" in every particular.
