And some we wot of have gone to
what they thought was the "ideal

rampant, and the country infested

HIS WOUNDS DANGEROUS.
Wyoming Jurist Shot by Litigant, Who
Laramie, Wyo., Oct. 2 .William
Lepper, for thirty years a resident of
this city, shot Judge Charles W. Bram
mell three times in the law office of
the latter, then, turning the revolver
upon himself, blew out his own brains.
Judge Brammell is still alive, but has
three bullet wounds in the head. He
has a chance for recovery, but his
advanced age is against him.
Lepper, who was an old man, has
been in constant litigation for the past
eight years over property in this city
which he lost title to by giving it as
security on a deal In stocks. He had
attempted to regain the title through
the law which refuses legal standing
to a gambling debt
Judge Brammell, when on the bench
several years ago, gave a decision
favorable to Lepper, which was re
versed In a higher court. Judge Bram
mell later acted as attorney for Lep
per and It appears that Lepper be
lieved that he had not properly looked
after his Interests. Lepper returned
recently from California and had been
heard to threaten the lives of County
Attorney Downey, Judge H. V. S.
Groesbeck, District Judge Carpenter
and several other attorneys who at
one time or another have been con
nected with the Lepper case.
Judge Brammell Is one of the lead*
tag Democratic politicians of the state
and has held many important offices.

She sank and keeled over on her port
