P. Sullivan , one of the pioneers
of Cherry count/ ' and for several
years county commissioner in the
' 90's , came down from Merriman a
couple of days ago to transact some
business before.departing to spend
the winter in Goshen , Ore. , where
he will live with an old friend dur
ing the cold months. We enjoyed
a pleasant visit with him at our
office yesterday. The good will
and wishes of Cherry county people
ple will go with "Mr. Sullivan and
hope for him a safe journey and" a
pleasant sojourn until the spring
months come again , when his
friends will hope to see him back
In the next term of court there
will be a case of the state of ISeb.
vs W. K. Boddy , charged with
assault with attempt to kill upon
the t person of Miss Bee Moih'fr , who
for several months was in his ? em
ploy. 1 . It is said that he slapped
1 her over once for Inaving the cash
drawer open. A young fellow ,
who had been hanging around the
restaurant ) stole a ten dollar bill
upon this occasion , and Boddy
blamed Miss Moffit. Boddy is a
colored man and was proprietor of
the Elite restaurant in this city.
Lateis he and Miss Moffit had a
disagreement and she failing to get
the wages she claimed , tried to see
lira at different times and finally
in a quarrel she struckat him.
Boddy picked up an Indiaa'war club
which she had thrown at him and'
struck "her over the head and left
icr insensible laying in a stable
where she was found and taken
back to the house. Boddy's past
record is not commendable and
several persons have had more or
less difficulty with him in various
Attempt to Break Jail.
Last Thursday was Sheriff Lay-
port's birthday and in the evening
two of the negros , who wore con
fined in jail , were taken up to the
Layport mansion to furnish music
for an 'evening's entertainment.
During their absence , and believ
ing that the sheriff's family were
reveling in sport and merry mak
ing J , one Arley T. Meade made a
bold attempt to saw his way out of
jail with a eagged edge case knife.
He is charged with raising two
notes given by Felix Black and
Kalph Crabb-from $4.70 and 80.70
respectively to $40.70 and $00.00 ,
which he had sold to the 1st Xat-
ional Bank. The affair had been
kept very quiet and Mr. Mcade
would have probably gotten off
easy but for his own foolish at
tempt to get away. His plans
were foiled by Eobert Robinson ,
who happened to be in the court
house doing some janitor work ,
arid as soon as he could ascertain
that there was foul work being
done , notified Laynorts by tele
phone. Thr sheriff and his son
were soon on hand and going in
stocking feet to the jail door turn
ed the key noiselessly and sprang
inside. Mr. Meade was up at the
window busily sawing away but
dropped to the floor in an instant.
He had probably been working
harder than he was accu3tomed to
and finding the progress slow was
perhaps better pleased to have
Mr. Layport tell him that he need
not work so hard. The other
prisoners were making no effort
apparently to either assist or stop
him. It is said that he has made
himself very agreeable to a young
lady in town whom he perhap
would have forgotten had he been
