This casejis one of the.most in

"was brought to Canyon City on a
change of venue. The trial that
has now resulted in a hung jury
continued for more- llum a week,
and was atteaded by prominent
cattlemen from various portions
of the Panhandle country.
Prominent attorneys were en
gaged for both the prosecution

is again lu re. The machine and
crew came down Wednesday
ninht in charge of l)r. Patterson,
Mr. Hurley having charge of the
men. At the time when this
machine left here the company
was out of heavy steel, but since
then they have received many
car loads and unloaded them
here in their yards, and now
that the machine has lieen
brought hack, it will take up the
work where they left it and push
it rapidly forward. At that time
they w( re about five miles out
southeast of town. The machine
which lays about three miles per
day on an av erage will soon close
the gap up. which lies between
us and the caprock.
It is very evident that flit
Santa Fe people are more anx

than any of theii lines whin,
they are n.r.v building, and why
not'.' They are opening up some
