The Coyote Bounty. EmTo Guwa: I have been Inveatlaatlne the matter of the coyote bounty, today, and find tnai we owe about l.uuu ana prooaoiy more, as no record was kept of scalps certified to and dostroyed. We, the Union, if we have any, nave notes and cash to the amount of 1400 and delin quent asnessmenta to the amount of about tauu more, wnicn I trust the sheep men will attend to at once so that we may meet our county court at tbe next May term in such a condition that they will be encouraged to help the good work along as they have expressed them selves ready and willing to do. Tbey, as well as the people, nave been long sinter ing with us. and I cannot see any reason why our delinquent members do not put their shoulder to the wheel and pay op. If they would consider the damage the; would have sustained had thia hoard of coyotes been increasing, they would cer tainly not hesitate to do their duty. it would nave been sun better, nowevcr, if they had kept the bounty paid np, for li they had, by this time coyotes would have been lew and lar between.
