The Escaped Horse Thief.

Tags: | |

Reported in The Daily Independent, Helena, Montana / Nov. 4, 1888

Concerning the chase after Clark, the horse thief who escaped from the Meagher county jail, the Husbandman says: "As Mr. Baldwin came in from Sheep creek last week he met Clark, the horse thief, going in the direction of Neihart mounted upon a good horse and carrying a Winchester rifle. Hustling Under-sheriff Kyes started at once in pursuit and has not been heard from since. Clark will not probably be taken alive, and Kyes will not likely give up the chase as long as he can get any trace of him. A collision is therefore not improbable at any time."
