II said that It Is hard to prove conspiracy because consplr atora work In secret, and that the only way In which It ran be known whether con spiracy existed is by reviewing the acts of the defendants. He turned to letter written by Kox to Townsend In which the writer said. "We must mske a winning In this Importsnt deal." Thle. the attorney argued, showed that there was an agree ment between the defendants. In another letter Fox wrote. "We have won out on all the land we went after, and the other side are sure sick of It." This, urged Mr. Lane, shows concluHlvely that there was a chemj to keep certain undesirable homesteaders out of the Fox pasture. Asserts So Conspiracy. Asrixtant Attorney Lane was followed by Hodder. counsel for Fox. and he put an entirely different construction on the letters, explaining that the alleged con spiracy was nothing more than an effort on the part of the defendants to protect their Interests. At that time he said a number of cattlemen were fighting among themselves, and that It was the desire of the defendants to have settlers come In ho would act In harmony with them, and not keep up a continual hubbub.
