. William J. Rainbolt , Shot ,
Last Thursday evening AVm. J.
Rainbolt was shot at Charbonneau's
ranch , 25 miles northeast of Val
entine , by a man who was in the
employ of J. "W. Stetter as a ranch
hand at that place and where Mr.
llainbolt had stopped that evening
while gathering up cattle for the
O'Connor Cattle company.
S. E. McAlevy , C. V. Cook and
Henry Gaver were at the ranch in
charge of J. TV. Stetlcr's stock.
C. V. Cook had driven to town
Wednesday with Hans Ulrich's
family and returned Thursday ,
taking a quantity of whiskey home
with him , arriving at the ranch at
four or five o'clock. McAlevy ,
Gaver and Raijibolt had rode in
shortly before from the range
when Cook drove in'from town.
Supper was prepared by Rainbolt
while the others took caro of the
stock , and finally all were seated at
the supper table. Several drinks had
been taken from a jug of whiskey
and Cook , who appeared anxious
for a wild time , got up from the
table , went upstairs , got his six-
shooter and returned to the table ,
sat down , laying his sixshooter on
the floor beside him. Henry Gav
er got up , walked around Cook ,
picked up the sixshooter and ran
out doors with it. Cook got up
from the table at this and started
out , saying he would get the gun.
They were heard outside parley ing
and Rainbolfc got up , saying to
McAlevy that Gaver and Cook
might get into trouble and lie
would go out and try to quiet them
or get the gun away from them.
McAlevy still sat at the table eat
ing and heard two shots fired short
ly after Rainbolt went out , but
thought Gaver was shooting to
make a noise. Presently Cook
and Gaver returned and Gaver
threw the gun down on the floor.
The two went into a corner of the
room and talked in . an undertone
for a few moments , shook hands
and sat down to the table.
McAlevy heard Rainbolt groan
and went outside , found him lay
ing on the ground a few feet from
the house andasked him if he was
sick , but receiving no answer ,
picked him up and dragged him to
the door where he discovered that
Riinbolt's head was bleeding and
that he was unconscious and gasp
ing for breath. Cook helped Mc-
Alcv.v to carry him inside the
house and stated that he knew who
did this. Henry Gaver had left
the house while Rainbolt was be
ing brought in and didn't appear
auuin while McAlevy was there.
McAlevy started shortly after this
to the stable to get his horse , tell
ing Cook he was going to town for
I- the doctor , but rode to Pole Hud
son's and the two went to Jim
Hudson's , waked him up , and Pole
rode over to John Shelbourn's and
telephoned from there for a doctor.
Jim Hudson hitched up to his
wagon and he and Jim Ashburn
wont back with McAlevy to the
Cliabonneau ranch , which was
about H miles from there , arriv
ing about 11 o'clock where they
found Rainbolt dead , lying in the
kitchen , and Cook near by on the
-floor asleep. Gaver had gone into
his room and locked the door , but
hearing the voices of people in
where Rainbolt lay , he cut the
screen of a window In his room
and jumped out , hiding away un
til daylight when Jim Ashburn
saw him lying in the grass down
in the meadow some distance from
the house. They went down with
a shot gun and brought him up.
He had no coat or boots on , hav
ing evidently been taken by sur
prise and said he didn't like to
come back into the room where
"Red" lay on the floor , covered
with blood or he would have gone
after the cartridges upstairs and
would have been better prepared
to leave. Ashburn and McAlevy
then went to Rosebud for the po
lice , leaving Jim Hudson to guard
Dr. Lewis and Walther Melten-
dori ! arrived from town about 7
o'clock in the morning and stayed
with Jim until the agency doctor
and Indian police arrived , and the
two doctors made an examination
of the wound in the head of the
deceased but found no bullet. Ed
Clark and W. A. Kimbell , mem
bers of the Eagle lodge , went out
Friday morning and arrived at the
Charbonneau ranch shortly after
noon and stayed until the Indian
police started back to Rosebud
with Cook and Gaver. .
The deceased was brought to
town , arriving Saturday morning.
The news was flashed all over
the country and friends of the de
ceased came to town Saturday from
around Kennedy and other places.
The funeral was held Sunday at
at two o'clock p. in. from Bethel
hall , conducted by the Eagle lodge
of which Mr. Rainbolt was a mem
ber. A large number of people
were in attendance to bid a last
farewell to a departed friend.
\V. J. Rainbolt was born in Texafs
and had lived there and in New
Mexico , where his parents now
live , until five .years ago , since
which time he has lived in .Ne
braska , most of the time in Cherry
county. He was 30 years of age
at his death. He was gentlemanly ,
quiet , of good habits , trustworthy
and a friend to everybody. Every
one liked " 'Red , " as he was famil
iarly called. He was laid to rest
in Mount Hope cemetery , a large
number of friends following in
procession tthe grave.
