Effective Work by Cowboys.
Salt Lake, July 21.—News comes
from Judith City, northern Montana
that five horse thieves were captur-
ed and hanged in the vicinity of
Rocky Point a few days ago. The
hanging was done by a regular or-
ganized gang of cowboys, who set
out to round up the thieves that
infest that, section, and thev are
doing their work in good shape.
They secured thiity two stolen
horses from the quintette of outlaws
and then made short work of them,
hanging the lot to the nearest tree.
In the region between lower Judith
and Mussels Hill within three
weeks, thirteen horse thieves have
been lynched and it is probable thai
the end is not yet The campaign
was begun by the killing of twi>
horse thieves on Mussel's Hill, fol-
lowed by dispatching two bal
breeds at Clargett. One was hang-
ed on Armet Creek and another near
Fort Maginnis. Two more were
lynched at Lowiston on the south,
and t Mr big haul at Rocky Point is
the latest, making in all, thirteen.
Taking Steps to Prevent Cholera.
Washington, July 21.—The Cab-
inet decides to take vigorous meas-
ures to prevent the introduction of

of the Republicans to carry some of
the Southern States. Ho is parti-
cularly confident of capturing West
Virginia, Ho said to-day that
there is only a Democratic majority
of 3000 to overcome in that State
and he believes that result can be
accomplished. Next week he is
going over to Deer Park, where he
will meet the leaders of West Vir-
ginia Republicans to hold a confer-
ence and devise ways and means
for delivering the State to Blaine.
Mr. Klkins is hopeful of carrying
the State on "both local and nation
al issues." The local issue_ is the
public school question, on the
charge that the Democratic State
Assembly has misapplied the school
fund by appropriating it in other
directions. The National issues,so
called, are Blaine's popularity and
his protection principles. Elkins
also expects the Grtenbackers of
the Stste to vote solidly for Blaine.

as they will have to yield in the end
As fast as the men struck they re-
ported at the headquarters of the
respective unions. About thirty-five
employers allowed the men to go to
work on their own terms. .Hugh
Mahone, who has charge of the
erection of the new exchange, says:
'"The buildingtrado is very lively and
I do not think the boss builders can
afford to have men go out on a strike
for any length of time without suff-
ering great loss. Nearly all the large
builders will grant the demand."

It is with sincere sorrow that it
becomes our painful task to record
the death, in this city, at about noon
yesterday of Mr. Geo. B. Shepard of
yellow fever. Our personal acquain-
tance with Mr. Shepard was short,
but very pleasant. He came here
from Arizona some months since, as
inspector of customs under collector
Tibbits, and last month was trans-
ferred to Nogales, Arizona. He was
sick but four days, and two of that
in El Paso. Mr. Shepard was con-
sidered an efficient, faithful and
conscientious officer. His remains
were interred at 5 o'clock p. m. yes-
terday. His sorrowing family has
the warmest sympathies of the
Times in their bereavement.
