Unrighteous Methods of Grangers Over the Border. The intrepid Billy Lykins has run to earth a pair of stock thieves and has locked horns with the Nebraska authorities. It is well known that the bold gang which has been ravaging the Horse creek range for the past three years had headquarters in Nebraska. After the arrest of the and son who are now in the county jail here officers concluded to break up the lawless organization if possible and Lykins, who has been active in ferreting out the thieves was given permission to follow them into Nebraska if necessary. Billy was keen to corral the freebooters.

His scheme was to follow them over into Nebraska, make the arrests and hurry back into Wyoming with the prisoners. Os course this was a trifle irregular, but desperate remedies were demanded, and the state line is not very clearly defined. The courageous deputy was advised to secure reliable men to assist him in the undertaking, but it appears that he tackled the job single handed, being reckless as ever. At any rate he is having a little wrangle with the stale of Nebraska. From what can be learned here it seems that Lykins arrested two men, but was unable to return to his native heath with the captives atod is now attempting to push the prosecution in Nebraska.

He is at Harrisburg, Banner county, a small settlement fifty miles northwest of Kimball, the nearest railway point Prosecuting Attorney Stoll and Sheriff Martin leave for that place this morning and will doubtless straighten out the tangle. These Nebraska grangers who cause the trouble are hard eases. They slip over into Wyoming ostensibly to hunt antelope in a country devoid of game. They slaughter cattle, leave the debris and return home with the meat. Enough for home use does not satisfy them at all.

Stolen Wyoming beef is marketed through a scope of country fifty by a hundred miles. Three of these granger thieves were captured last year with a freshly butchered Wyoming steer in a wagon. Lykins landed them in the Laramie county jail. Two forfeited bonds and the third was acquitted. Old Jed Prouty.

Mr. Richmond Golden, who impersonates in the play passed his boyhood days in Bucksport, right at the old heels, almost constantly. Day in and day out did the embryo actor, boylike, note and study the gait, manner isms and utterLms of the chipper old village Boniface, little dreaming that the study would stand him so well in need later on. Mr. William Gill and Mr.

Golden, together, wrote the play. Their motive in writing it was to demonstrate the fact that a Down-east was not the boastful, nasal voiced, whittling ignoramus that theatrical folk have so far represented him. To-night. To Walk for a Wife. John Gallagher and Wheeler have been paying their attentions to a Fossil beauty for some time and to settle the question which should have the prize Wheeler has challenged Gallagher to a five mile go as you please race to come off about the middle of August.

The soiree, in introduced some splendid singing and scenery. The specialties were now and clever, bringing forth rounds of applause. brought out the entire strength of the company.

People coming late were unable to get seats. Here Monday night. Ball Game. Kimball, an enterprising Nebraska town has sent a strong ball team on a tour to advertise the town. The neighbors will meet the home club at the fair grounds to morrow afternoon, when there should be a big crowd to witness the game, which will doubtless a good one.

Baird, J. C. Davis, E. P. Schoonmaker and Albert J.

Bob Burnett, an eccentric ranchman who continually quarreled with his neighbors disappeared mysteriously ten weeks ago. His claim was at once jumped by a man named Black, who said he had purchased the property and that Burnett had gone east- The neighbors did not believe this story, but when thev suggested a search for the missing man Black threatened to shoot the organizer of a party. The mystery deepened and speculation was rife until Chas. Pullman and wife cause to Laramie Thursday with a couple of buckets which they belidVed contained the remains of Burnett. The corpse was in the form of ashes though there were a few charred bones in the debris.

A peculiar button affected by Burnett identi tied the ashes as the corpse of the eccentric ranchman. The daughter of the Pullmans stumbled on an odd looking old camp fire while picking berries in a dense thicket. She investigated and reported to her parents. It is generally believed Black murdered Burnett and cremated his victim's body. He had previously occupied the claim he now tenants, Burnett being a himself.

A rock pile is to be secured for the amusement of tramps. It is hoped that all arrangements will be completed at once. Tramps should be worked on the streets as they were by T. Jeff Carr, Frank Dietrick, Capt. Thos.

Cahill and other officers who were in the service of the city before Mr. Harnish and his policy materialized, but a stone yard properly managed will scare the gentry away from Cheyenne. Sheep Law. Inspector Meyer complains that our present laws arc wholly inadequate and do not protect the sheepmen of the county from scabby trail sheep. The law provides that owners of traveling bands of sheep shall notify the inspector upon their arrival in the countv.

while the law to be effective should provide that the inspector be notified and the sheep inspected before they be permitted to enter a county. As the law now is, trail sheep are often half way across a county before the inspector receives his notification. There are several other features of the law which need revising and the attention of the next legislature will probably be called to them. Moving Troops. Troops from seveial different western posts, notably Fort Douglas, Utah, were here yesterday afternoon enroute to summer camp via Bordeaux.
