The follow im; morning a la i l-.
posse picked up the trail of the out-
laws and moved into the hills in pur-
suit. Shortly after the man-hunt got
under way, David Treadway, depu-
tized by the federal authorities, was
shot dead by a hidden rifleman.
With the slaying of Treadway,
leaders of the chase disbanded the
posse and to all intents the pursuit,
was called off.
Yesterday it was learned, however,
that the Ballards. made bold by the
apparent absence of pursuit, had re-
turned to their cabin, located within
half a mile of the scene of the first
encounter. A force of twenty picked
men surround* d the cabin. In an at-
tempt to rush the building. Agent
Guv I'ole was killed. Robert Ballard
was killed by a return v*dley from
the agents' rifles.
