Murder Suspects in Town.
The Burlington passenger depot was
the scene of a large and inquisitive
crowd of people Monday noon, when it
was noised about tawn that the sup
posed murderers of Cashier W. O.
Middaugh of the Cody bank "were at
the depot on their way to Big Horn
county, Wyoming, in custody of Sher
iff J. J. Fenton and Attorney Wells
who had been on the trail of the out
laws ever since the day f the ctimc.
The party came tip over the Denvor
routo from Unita county, Utah, where
the prisoners wore captured by Sheriff
Precs, and Deputy Sheriff Tall-ott of
that county. The two captives go by
the names of Dave Fraughton and
Bett Caldwell. They arc hard looking
chatacters, and judging from appear
ances were capable of doing- the terri
ble deed that is charged against them.
The reward for the apprehending of
thesu suspects was $2,500, which was
paid to the Utah officers before they
were turned over to the Big Horn
county authorities, which seems like
pretty good evidence to believe that
the right men have been secured.
They are both young men, perhaps
3 to 35 years of age. Caldwell is a
cold blooded, deliberate character with
a countenance that denotes cruelty.
Ho has the features of an Indian cioss
breed and very likely aboriginal blood
flows through his veins. He seemed in
dtffent to the grtzes of the spectators to
whom he and his partner were the
center of attraction. The other prison
er, Fraughton, is short and stoutly
built, his Hand, which nervously
twitched a cigarette, told that ho was
not a working man, in fact it is as deli
cately shaped and white as a lady's.
While he possesses a bright, clear eye,
which escapes nothing about him, he
has a weaker nature than his pal, and
appeared restless and nervous as the
throng piessed about him. He, 110
doubt, had considerable to do with nr
ranging the dctaisof the robbery, for
he shows a bright intellect, while that
of Caldwell is dull and ignorant.
The crime for which these tuo men
wet e arrested is so well known to the
readers of Tim Herald that only a
slight review is necessary, One day
last fall two men appeared at the bank
in Cody, Wyoming, with revolvers, and
while one held his guns at the head of
Cashier Middaugh, the other riffled the
vault of the money in sight. After
hacking out of the bank door and
mounting their horses, the cashier ran
out to apprehend the robbers and was
shot dead by one of them as they gal
loped from town in tho direction of
Owl mountains, where all trace seemed
lost until they were overtaken in Utah,
as here related. But it seems that
ever since their escapo they have been
followed by Attorney Wells who accom
panied Sheriff Fenton on his return
from that state.
Mr. Fenton was a resident of Box
Butte county back in the eighties and
quite a number of the pioneers recog
nized him as the rancher who had a
large bunch of cattle along Snake
Robber Breaks Jail.
Sanford Smith, the colored inmate
of the county jail who had plead guilty
to the charge of house breaking a
couple of weeks ago, escaped Monday
The sheriff had secured the jail for
the night, and locked everything up
in good order when for some reason the
janitor who has or had a key went into
the jail. The colored man took advan
tage of the man and the night to get
away. An alarm was given but the
thief was gone.
The sheriff and marshals scoured
the country all day but no trace of him
could be found. Tuesday night about
10 o'clock the coon came back and
Please do not forget that we are pre
pared to take care of your insurance in a
most complete and satisfactory manner. We
are now getting" a very large amount of in
surance business, but we want more. We
offer to you the benefit of our many years'
experience in writing insurance, and the

J. W. GERMAN

asked the jailer to admit him, which
was done ain the sheriff notified.
When Reed arrived Smith was toast
ing his shins nt a comfortable fire and
seemed pleased to he allowed to get
hack in his cell and go to bod, When
asked to tell why lie loft he said he
guessed ho was crazy. Judge West
over is expected) liorc daily to pass sen
tence on the trio.
It now appears that the object of thu
return of tlio prisoner wits to release the
other two, hoping to find the jailer there
to admit him to his cell. Instead the
wily jailer put him in the corridor,
locked tlie door and called the sheriff.
The following call for a non-partisan

The Public School Exhibit.
The exhibition of work performed by
the scholars of the Alliance public
schools last Friday and Saturday, at
the city hall drew largo crowds and it
was evident that pcopluin all walks of
life seemed interested in tho studies of
the scholars, The assembly room was
well arranged with tabled which were
covered with samples of tho brain work
of those who attend tho schools in this
city. Also the walls were covered with
aitistic pen and paint designs and there
weie compositions and ossayH galore
neatly hound in hoautifully designed
covers. It would be an endless task to
review the children's work individually,
so extensive was tho collection. The
department oft chemistry, titulor tho
supervision of Professor Bartz, was the
center of attraction and the exhibitions
by the students proved that they have
progressed satisfactorily in that study.
Tho work of the primary department is
entitled to praise and it is amazing to
understand how tho iittlo tots can ac
complish so much at such a tender age.
But it's thu old saying, "As the twig is
bent, etc " Tho other departments
were fully tip to tho standard of tho
woik and studies of the school. Tho
musical ability of the high school or
chestra 6 above the ordinary, and the
exhibition of last Fridav and Saturday
was greatly enlivened by tho choice se
It must bo conceded that the work
of the scholars reflect credit on tho
principals and teachers of tho Alliance
schools and wq can feel that the chil
dren are receiving the educational
trainitg they require. Thero is but one
Haw to be detected in tho conduct of
the scholars of the Alliance schools
and that ib tho nature of boistcrousness
almost akin to brutality shown every
day on tho way to and from school.
Profahity and fighting aro too common
and it is an everyday sight to witness
oases of brutal conduct and the op
pression of'tho weaker ncholars until it
is often necessary for people to inter
fere. The languugo of some of the
boys is simply shocking and they seem
to lake ptido in telliiig of punish
ments they havo been subjected to at
school. Is it possible that in tho energy
diarjayed for worldiWjfltucationjVjthei.y
There is certainly a screw looso some
wheic. Perhaps it in the training re
coived at home in inoSt cases and if
this is true, it is indeed difficult for
teachers to overcome this condition.
If a father or mother will permit their
children to curse and fight tho dohtiny
of those they should protect is written,
110 matter if they gain all tho school
ing ever taught in the world. A child
ignorant of moral oducutiou is a failuic.
Tins Hkrald does not wish to be un
derstood that all school children urc to
bo numbered among these, for there
are those who aro perfoct little ladioa
and guntlomcu in maimer.

Yesterday being Ash Wednesday,
the beginning of the lenten season,
services were-held at the Church of the
Holy Rosary, Rev. Father Galvin, the
patoi conducting the services, which
included the solemn performance of
placing ashes on tho forheads of those
who jiarticipated in the religious ex
ercises. The sign of the cross was
significant in reminding the devotees
that from dust they were created and
to dust they must return. It was also
a reminder, that the lowly Nazerine,
who came to redeem mankind from the
bond of sin, gave example of humility
and bodily survelliance and subjection
which made the perfect type in man.
This day marked the beginning of the
Jenten season, and the pastoral letter
from Bishop Scannell outlined the rules
governing tho. regulations for the holy
season, which are practically the same
as that of last year.
