CASSLDYS WYOMING CAR
Flush With Money When He Entered
the State I 1893
Cheyenne Wyo March 8While at
tempts are now being made to drive
the Robbers Roost gang of outlaws
out of northwestern Colorado and cor
ners of Wyoming and Utah it may
interest the public to recall the history
of Butch Cassidy in Wyoming who is
said to be the leader of this gang of
npnprRtp outlaws Butch fassidv came
into Wyoming about 1893 accompanied
I by a desperate character known a Al
Heiner They made their headquarters
at Lander Fremont county and had
some 8000 to 10000 in money which
is now supposed to be the result of a
bank robbery at Telluride Colo some
months before They spent thIs money
lavishly in the saloons of Lander and
elsewhere in the state and made a
great many friends among the tough
element then living in west central
j Wyoming
In the latter part of 1833 or early in
1894 Cassidy and Heiner were arrested
for horse stealing and vigorously pros
ecuted at Lander by Judge Jay L
I Towey the manager of the Embar Cat
tle company In the trial at Lander in
I 1894 Homer was acquitted but Cas
bidy was convicted under circumstances
which entitled him to ten years in the
penitentiary a the limit of the law
I was feared at the time that a at
tempt would be made to rescue Cas
sidy before he could be taken to the
penitentiary However much to the
disappointment of the stockmen and
law abiding citizens the Judge gave
Cassidy only two years and he went
quietly and unmolested to the peni
tentiary at Laramie But before his
short term had expired Governor Rich
ards pardoned Cassidy and turned him
loose upon the people of western Wy
oming Leading citizens of western
Wyoming reproached the governor for
his act but the governor claimed that
ac gvernor
the petition that he had received justi
fed him in the pardon Butch Cassldys
career since getting out of the Wyom
ing penitentiary has been that of a
desperado who has made nothing but
care and expense for the officers of
I western counties

A point of order raised by B W
Young at a special meeting of the

the proceedings to a full stop when
the board had been In session less than
half an hour The matter which the
board was called to consider was the
fixing of salaries of employees and
Mr Youngs point which was sus
tained by the chair was that the meet
ing was not properly called as the ob
ject of the meeting had not been stated

perintendents office 4750 per month
Charles Ereckson storekeeper 70 per
month
Wilson moved the adoption of the re
port and Critchlow interposed a mo
tion that the report be laid on the
table
Colton also wanted the matter laid
over and in support of his position
read a letter from Ralph E Hoge ex
city auditor who offered thesugges
tion that the salary of Clerk Moreton
ought to be raised instead of reduced
He also called attention to the respon
sibility of the position and the corn
Detent way in which Moreton had per
formed his duties Colton said he
agreed with the statements of Mr
Hoge and for that reason wanted the
different items of the report voted on
separately
Mr Young then raised the point of
order that the meeting was not regu
larly called and as he was sustained
by the chair consideration of the mat
ter was dropped until a later meeting
