HOGG IS IMPRESSIVE Services In Charge of Masons As Hundreds Gather To Pay Last Tribute To Friend. One might feel that be had not lived in vain if be could know that ilia going would mean so much to so many people as filled the Temple last Sunday where the funeral services ©ver W. T. Hogg were held. The road from Meeteetse was a procession of automobiles containing old timers who had started at day berak to show by their presence the affectionate regard in which they held the friend and neighbor who had shared their hardships and struggles in the pioneer days on the Greybull river. The quiet, unassuming man who made no bid for popularity, was followed to Riverside cemetery by the longest funeral cortege that Cody has ever witnessed. The floral gifts were many and very * beautiful while the services in the Temple, conducted by the Reverend Mr. Blaske, were brief but impressive. . The Episcopal choir furnished the music and the Masons, of which body Mr. Hogg was a memtier, were in at tendance. i The active pall-bearers were warm, ■ personal friends—Dwight E. Holliste | Roger McGinnis Richard Young of Buffalo, Wyo., Alex Linton of Mee-1 teetse, W. L. Walls of Cheyenne, and L. R. Ewart. The honorary pall-bearers were t James Dickie of Thermopolis, George T. Beck, J. M. Schwoob, P. E. Mark ham, O. D. Marx and S. C. Parks. • Among those who came from a dis tance were Alec Lang and Charles Rand of Buffalo, George and Dave Taylor of Tensleep with their wives, William McCoy of Casper, Mr. and , Mrs. Robt. Taylor of Grand Island, | Nebr. t and Mr. and Mrs. Ted Hogg of Denver., The long procession of mr«:ns so ' lowed to Riverside where t*:« burial rites were those of the masonic ord<*> | It was with wet eyes and heavy J hearts that the big concourse of peo-| pie turned away when the services j were ended, leaving “Bill,’ ’as he was known to so many, behind in the sun shine, under his lilies and roses, starting on his long sleep fn the still company of those who had preceded , him. His interest in life was so keen' that those who knew how much he enjoyed it could not easily resign themselves to its abrupt ending.

TWO ARE INJURED Il AUTO ACCIDENT An automobile accident which oc -1 curved on the canyon road east of the Shoshone dam on Tuesday afternoon resulted in the injuring of two ladies . —Mrs. McCaskill and Miss McCall of Fromberg, Mon Jana —and the shaking I up of" Terry Barefleld, driver and own ler of the car. ( Another car, driven by Donald Me- I Call, brother of the young lady victim, I had accompanied, the Ba refield car on j a trip up the river, and the accident i occurred on the way back to Cody. While going down quite a steep grade the brake clevis pulled loose, i making it impossible to hold the car in check. Ab the auto gained momen tum Mr. Barefleld chose the alterna tive of steering it Into the bank on the upper side of the road, thus pre i venting it from plunging over the 1 grade and into the river far below. As he did so the auto turned over. Barefleld and Mrs. McCaskill were caught in the wreck, while Miss Mc- Call was thrown clear. She suffered a dislocated shoulder, however from the force of the fall, while Mrs. Mc- Caskill sustained a very wicked flesh wound above her ankle. It is thought no bones were broken. The victims are now making pro gress toward recovery and congratu lating themselves that the accident did not result in even more serious consequences.

AND THE PARK COUNTY ENTERPRISE ‘WEALLCOBETDTHEBOOYSTAIIireBEI' IS MESSAGE ENN THE CROW INDIANS I The Best Horses And Riders From The Reservation Will Be Here To Compete With The White People, Accord ing To Present Arrangements. The Stampede Committee account this a lucky week. The Indians have sent word that they are coming with their horses and squaws and papooses and the stock subscriptions have been liberal." The Indians are one of the chief at tractions to tourists and lend much color to our celebration. All winter two factions have been arguing as to whether they would hold a Fair at Pryor on the 4th of July or come to Cody. Our guests of the Stampede Ball were our ardent supporters—Chief : Plenticoos, Simon Bull-Tail, Fights- Well-Known, Goes-Ahead-Pretty, Lit tle Buffalo, Fanny Sits-Down-Spotted, and the rest of them who look upon Cody folk as their brothers and sis ‘ ters. They have the time of their lives in Cody and they prefer to come here to any of the places they are invited. not even excepting Billings. The word Cody is the open sesame to their te pees. The traveler through the reser vation in the Pryor inuun.ain countrv is welcome if hte iwyi he is from Cody. So we have been told that our friends prevailed in the debate and they sent word last Thursday through a messenger that they would be here. “Me come,” said Plentlc > n s, laugh ingly. “Me come!” said Fights-Well- Known, emphatically. "Wp all come’"’ declared Simon Bull-tail with a com prehensive gesture whi'*a in j uJ»*d this end of the reservation. It is said that Hardin is pii?* »i g tn p«: un a roundup and is •)ff?«-in? :he Indians, every inducement in the way of beef and horses to get them there, but, according to the messenger from Plenticoos, they will stick to Cody; so, unless the younger ones allow themselves to be persuaded, there will be Indian dances, bare back relay races, squaw races and other Indian ; events in which we were disappointed stalyear. Then the friends of the Stampede responded generously in the way of BUFFALOBILL’SGUN OFFERED FOR SALE A letter has been received at the Enterprise from Mrs. Delia Brook of Rifle.. Colorado, in which she offers for sale a rifle wh'ich belonged to Col. W. F. Cody. Mrs. Brook states in her communi cation : “I have a rifle that was made espe cially for Wm. F. Cody and used by him on the plains while hunting buf falo. My husband hunted with him and traded for it in the 60’s. It is in fine condition and my husband prais ed it highly. “It is muzzle-loading, silver-mount ed, and has W. F. Cody stamped on the barrel. Also I have the powder flask, bullet pouch and all the equip ment with it. It weighs 18 pounds and is In good condition. “I am a widow and need money more than I need the rifle so I am wil ling to sell it.” POPPY DAY TO BE OBSERVED IN CODY Cody 1b among th® thirty-five towns In Wyoming that are cooperating with the State Department in making pop pies tor thia Memorial Day. The materials tor the flowers are bought and cut by disabled cx-serv ice men at the hospital in Minneapo lis. The profits from the -ale ot tills cut material Is the only source ot in come tor the personal expenses ut the patients at the hospital. The various State Departments of the Ame-lcan Legion Auxiliary are buying the ma terials from these soldiers Instead ot enriching some private concern. The local Auxiliary of the Fred Coe Post has made fifteen hundred i>op plea and will place them on sale be fore May 30. Watch for the sales girls—and remember that the popples are symbols which show our loyalty to those who served us. stock subscriptions for improvements at the fair grounds. From indications it looks as if at least half a section of new bleachers wall be necessary. Be-' side the bleachers there are to be some changes in the arrangement of the chutes, band stand, also additional I corrals. The track will have to be put ’ in condition and some repair work done on the buildings. I. H. Larom, who returned from New York City on Friday, tells us that he has a large party of boys, a party of girls and some 60 guests who will l>e here in time for the Stampede. The Burlington R. R. has just issued a booklet containing a description of. the Stampede which they are sending out to their agents. A letter arrived last week from New Hampshire asking the dates, while nearly every mail brings inquiries from pospective visitors and riders and ropers. We learn that Billings and Sheridan Edgar and the towns of»the Basin are already talking of our celebration and making plans to be here, so it ap pears to be necessary for us to in crease our seating capacity wnich was not sufficient last year for the attend ance on our largest day. All the dude ranches give us the same information, namely, that their guests are anxious to be here in time ■ for the Cody Stampede and are mak-, ing their arrangements to that end. We are more than pleased with the purchase of stock by outsiders who show their interest in us, and confi dence, by sending checks for stock in the association. . Those who so far have sent cifecks or cash are as follows: Kate Allerton Johnstone, Ham ton, Mass >lO Andy Martin, Cbdy 10 Pete Peterson, Cody 10 J. P.

Omaha, Neb 10 I >IOO TRYING NEW GAME BIRDS INMOATANA Seven pairs of Hungarian partridg es, direct from Jugo-Slavia were liber ated near Red Lodge last week. As soon as they were released they took wing and made a long and vigorous flight and are now reported to be mak ing themselves at home and show every indication of thriving. Their introduction was due to the Rod and Gun Club of Red Lodge which is an active organiation mak ing every effort to thoroughly stock that section with game birds and pio tect the native birds and animals. ' Next year they propose to make war 'on the coyotes which have done much damage to the game in that sec- , tion. The Hungarian partridge has proven highly successful where 'it has been introduced in the northwest-| ern states. In one county in Wash ington 80 pairs were released 10 years ago and last year 160,000 were shot during the open season without im- ' pairing the brood supply. BIG HORN BANK AT BASIN CLOSED; DEPLETED RESERVE Basin, Wyo.—The Big Horn County Bank ot this city has been ordered closed by Rudolph Hoffman, state bank examiner, because ot depleted reserves. The bank Is in charge ot Stewart Grier, assistant examiner. The capital Is 340,000 and the de posits 3223,000. D. L.

Hogg house this winter, moved back to their ranch at Wapiti on Tuesday. Mrs. Hogg will occupy the house Im mediately. WEDNESDAY, MAY 24, .1922 I BILLY McCOY BUYS A MILLION POUNDS WOOL I Casper Wyo.—The big “beat” ot the wool season was registered by I Bill McCoy representing Caverly & I Co., ot Boston, when he entered the Riverton and Shoshoni country and ' bought a million pounds paying an average ot 33 cents. This is the highest average price per pound registered In central Wyo ming for any large lots this season, and sets a scale that sheepmen and buyers may shoot at PARK-TO-PARK RADIATOR EMBLEMS TO BE GIVER OUT Within a reasonable length of time there will be delivered to each mem ber of the National Park-to-Park High -1 way Association, and the officials, one of the most attractive radiator emblems in use, and unquestionably the only one of its kind in the world. This applies to shape as well as col ors. The emblem has the shape of a shield, featuring the national colors in the stare and stripes, red, white, and blue, and in the center display ing the National Park-to-Park High way Association emblem in green and the words, “Master Scenic Highway of America,” in gold or silver, making in all five different colors. Kontana Bankers Caught-No License The majesty of Wyoming fish and game law was brought to the atten | tion of a couple of Montana bankers I in a manner that was both sudden and ' painful, the early part of this week. The victims of the tragedy were Messrs. A. F. Christiana, assistant cashier, and H. B. Camp, clerk, of the I Miners Bank at Bear Creek, Mont. We kdnw that is whtf they were be i cause they modestly admitted the fact ■ when taken in tow, upon the theory, evidently that those of such high, standing in their community were not amenable to the fish laws of the sov ereign state of Wyoming. But Carl Downing thought it might be well to divide some of their undivided profits with said state. j The two capitalists were busily en-' gaged in angling for the elusive trout in South Fork, west of Cody, when Downing decided to foreclose on them. | Upon investigation it was ascertained that they had neglected the formality of a fishing license for Wy- ’ oming, consequently their security was considered inadeuate. The sportsmen from the north were hailed before Justice C. A. C. Snow 'of South Fork, who proceeded to as i sess against each of them an amount in the principal sum of >25.00 (twenty five and no-one-hundredths dollars) together with attorney’s fees of ten per cent whether collected by suit or otherwise, and other costs in said case, which were at the time aforesaid ( >B.OO (eight and no-one-hundredths dollars.) The wanderers were also required to purchase a non-resident license for Wyoming. No grace was granted by hfzzonor and the fines were paid at maturity. The condition of the errant anglers at the close of business on that day will make interesting reading when they get home. MONTANA SAYS CARBON BLACK LAW IS INVALID Helena, Mont.—Declaring unconsti tutional chapter 126, session laws of 1921, the state supreme court in an opinion by Associate Justice Albert J. Galen asserts that restriction of the use of natural gas for making, carbon black is confiscation of prop-' erty without due process of law. Natural gas, or oil, the court holds, is real property, subject to the uses to which the owner might put it, and not subject to such regulation by the state as is provided for in the law complained of in the suit of the Gos Products company against Attorney General W. D. Rankin to restrain him i from proceeding under chapter 125 of 1921. Chief Red Wolf writes from Bea trice, Nebraska, that he has joined Dr. White Beaver’s Indian Show and I is “doing good.” E. P. Bowman, Mr. and Mrs. Thom as Hogg, Thomas Osborne, Jr., and Josh Deane were among the Meeteet se folks who came over to attend the funeral of W. T. Hogg last Sunday. i The policy of this paper la I jto uphold the standards I | and perpetuate the spirit I of the old West. I ISSUED EVERY WEDNESDAY CHOI MAKE WING LESS ANGELS BY LAW » 1• 1 In Unusual Letter, Full Os Truth ’ And Wisdom, Peter Demple Os Sheridan Says Price Is Too High For Prohibition. Editor of Sheridan Post: • What crime has not been committed in the name of prohibition? What outrage of liberty has not occurred in the name of this futile fanaticism? We have seen, in two years, more lives sacrificed to prohibition than the open sale of liquors would take in half a century. We have seen public of ficials debauched to defeat a form of sumptuary legislation to which man kind has never submitted —and never will submit. We have seen legislat ive bodies prostituted in the name of “morals,” and these law-making bod ies enact legislation as pleased the fancy of fanatics: and sleek reform ers who live in ease and luxury thru ■ the oupression of the American peo ple. We have seen the constitution scof fed and mocked by advocates of pro hibition; and its guarantees overriden in a vain attempt to compel the peo ple to submit to a tyranny more abso lute than ever dared by the despots of old. We have seen even the home ruthlessly invadeed by officials of the : law, in defiance of the fourth amend ment to the constitution, and to the outrage of every concept of liberty. In the name of prohibition, we have seen the Constitution—a document written ten to express the hopes of mankind > for thousands of years—undermined • and ridiculed so that a spurious amendment attached thereto through • hypocrisy and cowardice may be forc- • ed upon a people who object to its ty ranny. We have seen the laws of fanatics L strike down the exalted patriotism of millions of our citizens; and turn love !of country to distrust of country. We have seen millions of our youths sent forth to die for liberty; and those who returned told that “liberty’ is a | moth-eaten fallacy of the enemy they faced that freedom might endure. We have Med. we have oppressed, we have groveled in the mire of de l celt to serve the ends of fanticism and tyranny. Today we are reaping the harvest of infamy that we have sown. Today we hear the cry going up that we are sweeping forward to I the destruction of all law and order; I the result of arbitrary legislation which was to make us a nation of wingless angels. Liquor is a mixture of smiles and i tears, of happiness and sorrow; even as love is. In it lurks danger, as lurks danger in gold, government and , religion, when abused. Its evils are many and its joys are more. But, ac cuse it as one may: prove its evils as l one can, it has never in all the ages ■ swept a nation into tyranny and des , tructlon. But despotism and fanatic- ■ ism have wrecked nations from the 1 beginning of history. They will wreck ours if we submit. Liberty is too great a price to pay for prohibition. Peter Demple. Lovellites To Give Road Fund Benefit The Big Horn Mountain Road Show, with a troup of 28 people, including ; twelve girls and the famous Merry j Madcaps Orchestra, w’ill be presented i at the Temple Theatre, Cody, Monday night.
