lively skirmish. The un formal
showed no majority with Hugh
Hunter, in the le<id, Ou the

bolted a^d this resulted in a

Committed in Camp Crö'ok this
week. Sheriff Davis arrived to
day to take charge of Uf.ruh and
his preliminary heading will Prtfb- i
ably be held in Buffalo.
The young man committed two
separate jobs of check signing
arid gathering in the cash oil
them. His first victim was Ed
Lake, who sold Unrüli a $12 bill of
goods Tuesday evening, the lat
ter presenting in payment a
check drawn ih hi'? own favor j
signed "O, Vv. Own<»s,' i
vhich wd.p accepted and Uni'tih ;
eceivtd the balance in cash.
Loter Mr. La n e became suspic
ious of the check and hunted up
Cashier McDermott, who at onte
pronounced it spurious, the mis
pclling of Mr. Owens' narric be
ing enough to condemn it. Unruh
when approached cn the matte?
claimed to haye received the

a check for $17.60, payable, to
himself, signed "John McNarie"
This he presented to Landlord
Pannill, who was induced to en
dorse it, and the young man got
the money on it at Chuning's. But
about that time Mr, Pannill
heard of the Lake & DeBghoy
experience and immediately nail
ed the budding "financeier" and
demanded, the money, getting
all but $1.80. Unruh was about
to leave on the Bowman stage,
Mr. Pannill telephoned Job,p

Unruh &nly recently got out of
trouble up at Bftker which came
about through his propensity for
writing cheeks. He is a pqor
