Mas. ANNA DONER AND FAMILY,
—The Stock Growers Association,
with headquarters at Pierre, are mak
ing it quite lively for the cattle thieves
on the reservation. Newson, who has
a ranch near Ft. Pierre, and Hays, a
Pierre saloonist, have been arrested
and taken to Rapid City for trial for
stealing 16 head of steers from F. B.
Patterson of Gettysburg, who has a
ranch near Nowlin, on the ceded lands.
It is said that some of the prominent
men about Ft. Pierre are implicated
in the various depredations.
—A cnmmal case from Elk town
ship occupied the attention of Justice
Livingstone's Court for a short time
Monday afternoon. It was a case of
trespass upon the premises of H. B.
Halbert, Esq., of Elk, by W. B. and T.
Weaver of Hyde county, who it seems,
after being repeatedly instructed not
to do so, drove and herded their cattle
upon the lands of Mr. Halbert in Sully
county. Mr. Halbert finally became
tired of having his property destroyed
and swore out a warrant charging
criminal trespass. The defendants
waived examination, and were bound
over to answer to the next grand jury.
Dist. Atty. Meloon appeared for the
State and T. M. Simmons of Blunt for
defendants.
