The first, holdup which has ever oc cured in the town of Kendall, took place on Saturday morning when James Stirling was separated from his wad by persons unknown, which caused him to suffer considerable personal inconvenience and retain a black eye as a moment o of the oc casion. On regaining the full posses sion of his senses after the occurence, Mr. Stirling found himself in l lie pos session of a, black derby hat which he did not, recognize as his own. Deput y Dennis was notified and after a little work on t he "Sherlock Holmes" order, arrested Kid Callahan and Frank May. They were taken before Judge Kelly and demanded a jury t rial. The case was heard and brought, to light, the fact that while circumstances were suspicious, that Stilling had been flirting with the black bottle in a manner which made his evidence somewhat shaky. Callahan and May brought, wit nesses Io test ify to t heir absence from the portion of the town where the holdup occured and conse quently were acquitted.

Slater feels that lie has a kick coming. For t he past t wo years lie has been taking prisoners to the penitentiary and putting up for the expense from Ids own pocket. When the legislature rolled around, he figured up his expense and they amounted to $1,84(1.80 for the two years, lie presented this bill to the state and yesterday he received a letter from the state auditor stating hat, Ids bill had been allowed in the sum of $1,00(1.95, but a little more than one-half of the amount of the bill. While there lias probably been a rakeolf on the part, of some of the sheriffs of the state, Sheriff' Slater loses several hundred dollars because of 1 he, slicing of bis bill. A number of Ids trips out with prisoners were taken before the railroad was com pleted into the city and the expenses were correspondingly great, lie is compelled to stay eit her at Helen or Butte two nights on t he trip and this has piled up the expenses. And fur ther, he has been out the use of the money and that amounts to some thing. The popular Fergus county officer reasons that the legislature might have dispensed with the ser vices of about 25 superfluous clerks during the session and applied the money so wasted to the payment of some just Dills.
