Acquitted of Serious Charge by
Cheyenne County Jury.
The case of Pat King against J. H.
Vaughan and son Claud came up for
trial at Sidney this week and resulted
in the acquittal of the defendants by a
jury, after short deliberation. This
case.tlic particulars of which have been
discussed by many citizens of Box Butte
and Chovcnne counties for sometime,
began last October when the Vaughans',
whose ranch is near that of King's,
made a shipment of one hundred head
of steers to York, Neb., and one steer
belonging to King was shipped by the
Vaughans'. It appears that the Vaugh
ans' were assisted in the work of round
ing up and shipping the cattle by two
other men and that the steer owned by
King got in with the bunch after the
roundup and inspection, and without
Vaughans' knowledge. When the mat
ter was called to J. H. Vaughan's at
tention, he stated that he did not be
lieve the steer in question had been
shipped, but if Mr. King thought so
and would go to York he would pay all
his expenses and also pay for the steer
if the animal was found there. The
steer was shipped with Vaughans' and
King brought action, charging that it
was done knowingly and wilfully, the
defense contending that it was done
through mistake and without their
knowledge. The defense had several
prominent stockmen of this vicinity to
prove that in the handling of large
herds of stock it is no uncommon oc
currence to make such mistakes. It is
also a fact that the ranchers have not
been on friendly terms for some time
and it is the general impression that
meddlers have done their part to pro
mote the ill feeling. Perhaps it was
due to these influences that Mr. King
was lead to believe that the Vaughns'
intentionally shipped his steer. He
certainly would not have made such a
serious charge unless he believed this
to be the case. It has been expensive
enough for both the prosecution and
defense, and now that twelve men who
heard and weighed the evidence have by
their verdict exonerated the defense of
this serious charge, it is hoped by the
friends of both, that the unpleasant
matter will be forgotten and that the
incident will at least prove of some
benefit to all the stockmen of western
