Bob Taylor, the murdei-er. makes
it appear that he has killed others
since February. 1903. Ono entry,
undated, reads: "Today I killed 'feller,'

"I killed a fellow," and the rest may

Carroll county. Missouri, who, after
murdering the Hooka family of several
persons, for which ho was sentenced to
be hanged in 1506, escaped, disappeared '
and for whom heavy rewards were of

of tho Meeks family and executed.
Long life as a hermit may have af
fected his mind, for thero'ls said to be
no doubt that he Is partially demented,
and fear of capture may have led to
his deadly assault on tho two tramps
who applied at his cabin for shelter
and his (subsequent attejnpfc to kill
Sheriff Denholm and his deputies.
Bob Taylor, who is now under arrest
at Tacoma, if it bo Bob Taylor of Mis

most atrocious crimes over committed
In that State! He and his brother, Wil

western part of the State and connected

State. They were accused by an em

Meeks (and. It was thought all his

In a straw-atack. Ella Meeks, 10 years

Filed in Court.
DENVER, April 30. dov. James II.
Peabody Is declared to be a uaurpor in
a lengthy brief filed before the Supreme
court today by Attorney E. F. Richard
son in the heabeas corpus caso of
Charles H. Moyer, president of the
Western Federation of Minora, who is
held as a military prisoner at Tellurlde.
Gov. Peabody Is compared by Mr.
Richardson to a soldier drunk with
power and his acts in trying to suspend
the privilege of the writ of habeas cor
pus to the acts of tyranny practiced on
the people, of England by the olden
.Mr. Richardson in his brief attacks
tho decision of the Supreme court of
Idaho in a similar case, and says it Is
the only court in the country that has
said that the military was above the
Judiciary. Ho says that the decision
does not follow practically common
sense and that the Supreme court of
Colorado should not consider It when
deciding the present case.
The Legislature alone, Mr, Richard
son says, has the authority to determine
when the conditions require tho sus
pension of the privilege of the writ of
habeas corpus and then suspend it.

CALIENTES, Nev., April 30. Pros
pector Dana, who 'passed through
Callentes en route jLo his recently
located claims , at Mormon moun
tain, showed assays made by Salt Lake
assayers, going $2040.76 nnd 51700.41' In'
gold and silver, the gold predominat
ing. Ho also had a cube oil tellurium
weighing about five or six ounces, taken
from the samo mine.. He said that
his partner and self had eight claims
located, and on one hnd opened up a
slxtecn-inch vein at grars rooty, which
carried tho ore assaying 52040.75, and
the leaser assay was of a black quartz
taken from a eight and a half-Inch vein
iit uie uus oi a mty-ioot lecge crop
ping out at. the foot of a mountain.
Both these claims He about one and
a half miles from Mormon mountain,
which In between twenty-fiva and
thirty mile9 southwest from Callenteo
and five miles from the line of the San
Richest Striko STade.
Mr. Dana went south Thursday- and
says Ids partner and self will open up
both veins at once, and hope to make
an early shipment of this, rich ore to
Salt Lake City for treatment
This is the richest strike made in
this portion of Lincoln county, al
though Callentes has Its "lost mine"
story, In common with all old. camps,
and some of the old-tlracra here are
authority for the statement that thirty
years ago an old prospector named Da

mountains southerly from Callentes by
Indians, brought into Calic-ntea two
Email canvas sacks of ore showing nug
gets from the size of a plnhead to that
of a pea scattered freely ( through a
black, soft quartz, and siald that he
had found it about thirty miles south
of CallenteB in a canyon running close
to Mormon mountain. -
All Trace of Mine Lost. '
Reiche went' to Salt Lake, and from
there to Denver, -and all trace" of his
whereabouts since then are unknown.
Local prospectors who tried to Hnd the
claims he had located wero unable to
do so, and finally they were forgotten.
They place considerable credence in
Dana's sloryi as the locality he men
tions coincidea with that mentioned by
Several railroad men are going to
the scene of the reported strike.
There Is no doubt that Lincoln county
Is thoroughly mineralized, nnd many
rich samples of free gold, black Jack
and nzurite have been brought into
camp recently by prospectors and lo
cators An expert Butte mining man
who is now in camp says that the ore
taken from nearby properties Is Identi
cal in appearance with thut which he
has found in the Mountain View and
St Lawrence mines In Butte when they
were first opened.
