What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

No. 29. 112E0 IN 111 1 118TOWN Pulled a Gun on Marshall Kane —Several Shots Exchanged Slippery Bill Keeton Made His Es- cape—Great Excitement—No Person Injured. A lively fosilede of pistol shots at a late hour on Saturday night caused con- siderable excitement in Lewistown - and brought out a large *crowd anxious to find out the cause at the troubls. The ex.:Bement was caused hy est attempt on the part of Marshall Kane to arrest a suspicious character by the, name of Slippery Bill Keeton alto for the past two weeks has best' giving the mare- stintatives of law and order considerable trouble. , Marshall Kane, Nightwatch Harvey and Deputy Marshall William Debi; were etamling on the platform in front . of the Lewistown Livery Barn when Keeton and a partner by.the nante'of Tug Dirl- ington passed by; Harvey minted Kee- ton out to Kane and the latter officer walked up to him with the intention of making an arrest. .1t was then that the • e—sWisMwassesof-efswesiight-wwwberiketi by war- t i ke sounds which led the citizens of the burgh to believe thattthe oistrust which is so evident in the Democratic camp had broken out in a free for all and the various brands of Democracy were vet t- ing their spite in open warlare. Slippery Bill backed off trout the Marshall and pulled a gun of huge dimensions ; Harvey, made a jump to get him and when Slip- pery saw that it wits getting too inter - eating he turned and ran, tiring a ehot at the officers and . tlisa p peering into Skin- ner & Van's saloon in spite of a shot apiece tired at him by Kane and Hebb. Harvey was (dome at his heels and ex- changed shots: with him at tho back door of the building but without effect and Slippery and tne officer disappeared iii the darkness. In the street the scene was one of wild confusion and men with guns and clubs hunted the dark corners ot the town in an endeavor to locate the fleeing . desper- ado. Suddenly a shot rang out in the direction of the Montana Hardware and the crowd, anyway some of them ran in that direction and others started for places of safety. It was a false alarm however, being a shot fired accidentally by Marshall Kane who was tilling a 30-30 with cartridges and who in, the excite- ment of the et:tient. ehot the stuffing out of a can of paint. He and W. Behti started out toward the fair growals in order to head off Slippery but without success as when Harvey returned a few •minutes later be brought the informa- tion that Keeton had headed for the 'mountains. Tug Dirlington, Slippery Bill's partner, acted in a somewhat strange hammier ut the time sOf the attempted arrest atd also pulled a gun; he was arrested by Shaw and thrown in the calaboose. In the morning it was found that Keeton had evidently visited J. L. Beebe's barn with the intention of securing a saddle horse, as one of the animals was found .aith the rope cut from its neck and other signs of the presence of the deeper - ado were discovered. Late on Sunday afternoon -news was brought to the eity that Keeton hed spent lbe niultl at the shine quarry find Ii cml annotinced Ida in- tention of coming to :he city and \get- ting\ some of the officers. However he didn't show up and is probably headed for more coin/mile! climes. SCHOOL NOTES. The following pupils mere neither tartly or absent during the month ending October 3, 19t1 . 2.
