Rhyolite, Nev., April 23.-Short and killed James Arnold last Sun band of citizens at Skidoo, a camp in - California, fifty -five miles south of here, overpowered the sheriffs guard in charge of Joe Simpson, a gambler, who shot life of Cashier Dobbs of the Sou-day, and hanged the prisoner to a telegraph pole, where his body dangled this morning as the citi zens of the camp arose. ' The lynching was accomplished quietly, and today no one in Skidoo will acknowledge having any information relating to the affair. Simpson was hanged from the cross arm of the pole to which he was hound last Sunday after he had made an attempt upon the . Simpson, who bore an nusavory therm California bankCSkidob. Simpson, who bore an unsavory reputation, was intoxicated, and after- threateningDQhhsjhqtand killed Arnold in what is said to have been a cold-blooded manner, Arnold was a butcher and one of the most prominent men m the camp. He located the townsite of Skidoo, and was formerly justice of the peace there 'and had been instrumental in prosecuting Simpson on previous occasions. Simpson walked into Arnolds store with the question,- What have you against me! . f On being told by Arnold that he had nothing against him, Simpson pulled an automatic pistol and said: . Prepare to die ; I am going to kill you. Instantly he fired, the bullet entering below the heart. There was strong talk of lynching at the time of the killing, but this feeling died away and it was thought that nothing -would come of it. The hearing of Simpson was set for today, and as the time approached, in view of the fact that the killing was regard ed generally as cold-blooded murder, the people of the mining camp again became wrought up ;.nd decided to take the law into their own hands. -There is no jail at Skidoo, and Deputy Seller, with a strong guard, had been holding the prisoner in 'a vacant building, pending his preliminary trial. About 9 oclock a posse cf1'-masked meu surrouhded r'Ttnr building, demanding the murderer. In less than ten minutes premature justice had taken its course. Simpson was consideredia'vvortb? less character, and the lynch-. Wiiffhnpt. . this mining sec- tion, is generally applauded. ' A Atelephone message this afternoon from the editor of the Ski-doo News gives the following addition particulars: Simpson was guarded by ptepu-tyfe Sheriff IDenry. Sellers in a east iron building, there being no jail. It was feared that an attempt at lynching would be made, and at llo clock, an armed body of citizens appeared at the. imporvised jail and demanded Simpson. The prisoner was turned over without resistance by the deputy sheriff. Simpson was taken to a telephone pole and a rope adjusted about his neck. ITe was asked if he had anything to say, but seemed too frightened to make reply or resist, and was at once hoisted into the air. A passerby this morning saw the body about 6 oclock and raised an alarm. The body was cut down and an inquest held, the verdict being that Simpson camelT his death byltrangula-tion by parties unknown. LYON FIRES ON FLEEING THIEVES Two thieves .running away with a valise filled with bricks, were fired upon last night by Policeman, J. M. Lyon. They dropped the bricks but kept on running and succeeded in getting away. The bricks had been placed in the valise by the policeman, after he had removed about $100 worth of stolen tools. The story of the valise, the bricks and the thieves began yesterday morning, when Anton Fetko, a Hungarian mechanic, arrived in Salt Lake from Caliente; He left the valise filled with tools in the Utopia cafe at 350 West Tern pie street, and then went out in search of work. When he returned, the valise, was gone. He told Policeman Lyon of his loss. After a long search, .the policeman found the stolen - grip where it had been hidden a few doors away by-the thieves. ,The policeman took out the tools and filled the valise with bricks Then he concealed himself and waited for the rogues to return for the plunder. After waiting for a long time, the two men appeared and picked up the valise. , Policeman Lyon, leaving his hiding place, Started after them. Seeing him, they took to their heels, still carrying the valise. Thinking to stop them, the- poliemamredJLshot!JThjs J. iu a mV 4 MM A.3 4 V m ATT AM 4 A caused, the frightened thieves to drop their burden. .

The honeymoon which the Count" and Countess Szeehenyi are 'enjoying almost, ended fatally on Easter Monday. . The count and . countess have been automobiling daily from his castle to picturesque scenes miles around it. On Monday the countess was charmed by the Baboie-za river and the weather being beautiful she said she would like . . - - to go boating. A sudden and violent'- stori capsized the boat five hundred yards from shore and although the countess was in extreme danger, she assisted her husband and the boatmen in- their efforts to save her and themseves. , , They reached the Shore near the Ferenezy castle, wheie they were taken in an i remained until yesterday, recovering from their immersion and the exhaustion at-' tending this rescue. - , Journals Livestock Report- . , Kansas City Stock Yards, April 20. The cattle market continued1 unsatisfactory last week till Th ursday, when there was some improvement because of a big drop in receipts, and the market iriOlo 15 Riper today, as the supply is light, at 6000 head. The general decline of prosperity late-ly, especially in the East, has cut down demand for meats, but the very light receipts have prevented any great loss in prices, and values are still on a money making basis for the feeder. No heavy fed steers are here today from the west, but a big string of steers under 1100 pounds sold at $5.95 today from Colorado, heifers at $5.00, cows $4.60, stockers $4.75, feeders $5.30. Western hay fed steers have sold here in the last ueek at $5.40 to $6.10. Best demand from the country is . for light stockers, something that will make gains on pasture, while fleshy feeders are draggy. . Very light receipts of cattle the next several weeks 'are a certainty, and present prices should hold good. Sheep and lambs lost a little last week, and closed the week in poor shape. Supply - today is 10,00d head, market 5 to 10 low-erpand -prices somewhat irdisap-pointiifg on inferior stuff. Top lambs today sold at $7.45, medium lambs $7.10 to $7.20, clipped lambs $6.50 to $6.75, clipped wethers $5.75, Texas muttons $4.75 to $5.75, goats $3.75 to $4.25. The same complaint of stagnant "trade is made concerning mutton as is heard about other kinds of meats. Markets are likely to rule uneven, especially for half fat stuff, account of uncertainty regarding volume of business in grass stuff likely to-develop. J.W. RICKART, - L. S. Correspondent. . 4 .Thief Had Nerve. -i A thief was discovered by Mrs. Adam Farber in her home in Ogden, the lady having been out at the time of his entrance. As she was about to enter the hack door the man slammed it in-her face and walking through the house passed out of the front doot, walking past a gentleman neighbor who was knocking at the doon He -dodged down an adjacent alley and' escaped. He had with him the family s silverware and spare jewelry. A PUNITIVE EXPEDITION Mixed Force of British and In-7 dian Troops 'Beihg ldobilia- Simia, April 23. A mixed iorcELiJ3ritishaod Indian troops t it 1 11 V is at present being rapidly, mob-olized near Peshawaur for another punitive expedition against the fanatical , ' tribes who recently have been raiding and looting vil-lages on. the Peshawaur border. , The prime moyOrs in' the present rising .are the Mohmands, a Pathaar tribe acenpying the hills between Peshawaur and Kopat. The Mullans raised the Mohmands with the view of assisting their fellow tribesmen,- the Zak-kakhils, in their fighting last February against the British, but the Mohmands were too late, arriving on the scene after the Zakkakhile had been put down. Disappointed in their hopesr of fighting, the Mohmands started to ravage the country) villages were looted, the people thrown into a state of panpanic, and the siping of.. British outpoets was inaugurated. The ranks of the raiders increased rapidly until now 10,000 of' them are gathered at Kamli, 20 miles from Peshawaur. The situatiou is seriously complicated by the presence in this territory of Afghans, who are flocking in large numbers to the standards of the mullahs. Several thousand. Afghans are ftaup already to-Tumerqssed-lIe Kabul river. and to he on their way to join-Hie malcontents.
