Bandy, charg ed with horse stealing, had a sudden and unexpected termination In the dis trict court Saturday night, when, upon motion of County Attorney Ayers, the case was dismissed and the defendant discharged and exonerated. The proceeding is one of the most remarkable ever witnessed here, ami while all the facts have not been made public, enough is known to show that no other course was open to the coun ty attorney. Judge E. K. Cheadle, who had been fully advised as to the grounds for the move, promptly sus iff by it to . . . .. .. . ... tamed the motion, and Bandy walked | ou 4 of the court room a free man. By the testimony for the state it had ; been shown that on Sept. 9 last, Bandy was at the home ranch of the Me Donald Creek Sheep company, and had ' been around there for some days at, least. On the day in question, he arose early in the morning, and rode off on his own horse, leading an animal be longing to Mary Lyons. After riding some distance toward the N-bar ranen, he turned the led horse loose, but meantime word had been sent to the N-bar, and Bandy was arrested seven miles from Round-up. When H. L. De . , ; Kalb, ot DeKalb & Mettler, who de- ; feuded, made his opening statement ' in the afternoon, it was of a sufficieni-, ly unusual nature to command strict Q attention, and made a good many i smile. Mr. De Kalb said he would j f show by indisputable evidence that of Bandy was working for Sheriff Adams, of Yellowstone county, at the time of the arrest, and that he was in that j j | section of country for the purpose, j not of stealing horses, but of arrest- ; ! ing a horse thief, when he was him- | I self arrested. The witnesses who , I would establish these facts were Shei-j I Iff Adams himself and Detective T. N. j f i McCoy, of Billings, both of whom were I I expected in right away on the after- ; I noon train. These officers, it may be stated, I were to have arrived Friday, but miss ed connections at Lombard Friday morniug and were compelled to re main over until Saturday. As the train was late, a recess was taken pending their arrival, and when they ! reached the court house with Sheriff L. P. Slater, a series of conferences | were held, so that court did not recon- ! I vene until 7:30. To the surprise of | [LATEST NEWS FROM KENDALL Many Social Events at thle Big Min ing Camp During the Christ mas Season.
