H was thought at first that It would be a Federal case, but since the shooting resulted in the death of the prohibition offlcer, it becomes the duty of the 8tate to prosecute the case under the Bute law. On last Monday District Attorney W. R. Rey nolds was notified by George Sprtng meyer. United States Attorney, of the death of the Federal law offlcer. Atha Carter, and requested that prompt action be taken in the matter. The following day the District At torney filed a complaint in the Justice Court charging Robert F. Ralne and John H.

Rat tassl will leave for Reno next Tues day morning to bring the defendants to Eureka, where they will be tried upon a charge of murder. George Sprtngmeyer, U. 8. Attor ney, has advised the District Attor ney that the Federal government will give every assistance possible, and Edgar Eather, District Attorney elect, who will have charge of the case after January 1st, has Indicated that he will ask the Federal govern ment to assist him in the case. Owing to the fact that District Judge elect, W. R. Reynolds, has, as District Attorney, started prosecution of the case, it is thought that he will disqualify himself as judge in the case, and will call In some other judge to preside at the trial.

IS says: Robert F. (“Bob”) Ralne. prominent Eureka County cattle rancher, ar rested on his place near Palisade yes terday by Federal officials,* uccumbed this morning to a grilling to which he had been subjected through moat ot the night and confessed to haring fired some of the shots In the battle with prohibition enforcement officers In which Atha Carter was seriously wounded Tuesday night. Ralne broke down after his com panion, John Brtte, admitted partici pation la the shooting. Ralne, a strapping six-footer, wept like a child and when his attorney, James T. Boyd, arrlred at the county Jail this morning he was In a state of collapse. When United States Marshal J. H. Fulmer and his deputy arrived from Palisade with the prisoners last night, the men were taken to the sheriff's office and there were put under an examination at the hands of Sheriff HUlhouae, Capt. J. P. Don nelley, director of prohibition, and the marshal. While Ralne Insisted that he had no knowledge of the shooting or of the operation of the still on his ranch, Brtte made a state ment incriminating Ralne, saying that the men believed they were fighting it out with an enemy of Ralne's and had no Idea that the strangers who came to the ranch were officers. The grilling of Ralne was renewed early this morning and he then told substantially the same story as that of Brtte. The Identity of the mysterious guide who took the officers to the spot where a still was concealed on the bank of a creek on the Ralne ranch, became known to-day when it developed that “bad blood” had ex-j lsted for some time between Ralne and Harry Webb, a Government trap per. It was Webb who led the of ficers tc the place and he withdrew from the scene only after he believed both Carter and Dubois, the other prohibition officer, had been killed. When Perclval Nash, prohibition officer, returned from the scene ear ly this morning, he brought with him an affidavit from Webb, describing the affair. Nash told an Interesting story of how an attempt had been made to destroy any scent that might be taken up by bloodhounds by scat tering red pepper about. Nash said some of the pepper was on Brlte's shoes when he was arrested. Ralne and Brlte surrendered to the officers without a struggle and professed surprise when they were placed under arrest. They were found in a field not far distant from the ranch house and were unarmed. When Marshal Fulmer and his party arrived at Palisade Wednesday night, they found E. S. Cobb, deputy Sheriff of Eureka County, and deputy Dis trict Attorney Edgar Eather waiting for them. Cobb became ill during the night and could not accompany them to the ranch. Eather expressed the desire to go with them, but the officers insisted that he remain In Palisade where he could be of great er service, they said, in the event ot an emergency. When Ralne and Brtte were brought Into Palisade, they were kept under guard and handcuffed to gether until the arrival of their train several hours later. Arraigned be fore a magistrate there, they were ordered held without bonds. Ralne now is awaiting trial under a Federal indictment chhrging him with con spiracy to defraud the United States In connection with a land entry, ac cording to George Springmeyer, Uni ted States Attorney.

DEAD OFFICER BURIED iTHJjlGH HONORS Reno Journal Dec. 28: With all the bodies of Masonry paying the highest tribute in all the solemn grandeur of their ritual; in the pres ence of a vast assemblage of fellow members bound to him by years of friendship and association, and by the mystic ties of that fraternity, supplemented by men and women from official station and from the private pursuits of good citizenship, funeral services for Atha (“Nick") Carter were conducted yesterday af ternoon in the blue lodge room of the Masonic order at the temple. An impressive parade and cortege ac companied the sable hearse to the Masonic cemetery where all that was mortal was consigned to the grave. The funeral was one of the largest witnessed in Reno in recent years and it was apparent that, large as was the circle of friends and lodge brothers who assembled, the outpouring was materially augmented by those who believed their presence signified a tribute to a man who discharged faithfully his duty as a citizen and as an officer of the law. Headed by the Knights Templar In full regalia, fol lowed by the Shriners, by the mem bers of the chapter and the blue lodge members sat in appointed sec tions of the room. A veritable wilder ness of magnificent floral offerings from the various bodies of Masonry and from public and private persona was banked at the head of the black and silver-mounted casket which bore upon it the plumed chapeau and the shining sword of a true knighthood. Mrs. Forrest Whiting sanguapproprl ate hymns during the service and the Rev. Brewster Adams said the pray er. Before the closing the people formed In line and passed by the op ened casket, gaslng in sadness at the familiar features calm in the peace of one who had fought the good fight and had finished his earthly course. A. A. Brundidge, W. J. Machabee, Joseph Kirkley, L. W. Semenza, E. O. Cobb and S. R. Tippett, selected from the various bodies of Masonry to which the deceased belonged in life, acted as pallbearers.
