No members of the mob are known to the general public, although it numbered about 150 men. Hoefner, who was a ranch hand, brutally murdered Mrs. Maud Merrill, wife of a prominent Roesbud county rancher and stockman, last Monday. He was ransacking the Merrill house when Mrs. Merrill suddenly came in and caught him. Shooting the de fenseless woman down, Hoefner went to the barn, secured a saddle horse and made for the hills. The young son of the Merrills appeared on the scene just as Hoefner was riding away and the fiend shot twice at the boy, but both bullets went astray. The boy gave the alarm and a posse from Forsyth soon had Hoefner in the county jail At first he admitted that I he fired the fatal shots, but claimed it was an accident. Later, he con fessed that it was not an accident. The citizens of Rosebud county were somewhat inflamed over an al leged miscarriage of justice in another murder trial which had just been tried at Forsyth and decided to take no chances this time. Early Thursday morning the mob was quietly formed. A number of them sprang upon the sheriff as he was making his way to the jail and neld him so that he was helpless. Similar measures were taken to prevent the interference of the deputy sheriff and jailer. Then proceeding to the jail, the mob battered down the doors and led the murderer into the open. There he confessed all of the details of his fiendish act. In the most unconcerned manner possible, he walked with them tree There 1 ! hi. neck.

A shot was fired which .truck him In the head hut the coroner's jury found that death was due to strangulation and brought in a verdict that Hoefner came to his death at the hands of a mob, the members of which are unknown. DISPATCH BATTLESHIP. Administration Takes Steps to Protect American Citizens in Mexico. Washington, April 20.—President! Taft probably will send a warship to; the west coast o. Mexico to enable the Americans isolated in Sinoloa and oth er states to leave the disturbed dis tricts. A state department announce ment tonight declared this action like ly in view of the general anxiety for Americans in those localities. State department officials pointed: out tonight that with the suspension of railroad communication and inter-, ruption of telegraph service, American citizens of the west coast of Mexico, especially at Los Mochis, in Sinoloa, where there are many Americans, as well as in the vicinity of Mazatlan, are isolated. This fact, together with many reports of increased lawlessness; on the west coast, is causing much! anxiety to Americans in the region af fected and to their friends in the! United States. The sending of an American vessel to the coast of Mexico sets a precedent in the present revolutionary disturb-1 ances, as heretofore the United States ! navy has refrained from cruising in i Mexican waters. A British vessel last ' year, uowever, landed marines on the western coast of Mexico to enable for I eigners to escape a threatened attack I by rebels. The armored cruiser Maryland is at San Diego, Cal., the gunboat York town is enroute north from Guatemala to San Diego, the gunboat Vicksburg is at .Panama. It is likely the Mary ; land will be the vessel selected. Lawson Breaks Loose. Thomas W. Lawson of Boston has been heard from, after a period of rest and silence. The announcement came over the stock wires to Butte yesterday that Lawson wants to bet $ 100,000 that Roosevelt will be nomi nated at the republican convention, and that if nominated he will be elect ed. The blessed privilege of taking this net is limited to bankers and brokers, and the two propositions of bet must be coupled, though |of s erS may Srab tbe o£ter in Lawson also offers to bet $100,000 or any portion of ii in $5,000 lots, that Amalgamated copper stock will sell at par ' a share, before the fall elec tion, and that the copper metal will sell at 20 cents a pound in the same time. These offers are also limited to brokers. Facts About Cy Young. He is 45 years old, has been a big league pitcher for 22 years and he al ways prepares himself tor the season.
