CHARGED WITH STEALING STEERS
Had Government Contract and Stole Government Cattle to Fill It.
Mandan, N.D., Feb 14.—Peter and John Leonard, butchers and ranchmen, living on the Missouri River, in Emmons County, were bound over by the district court on the charge of stealing government cattle. The evidence tends to show that they had a government contract to supply Indians with beef, and they were stealing government steers to fill their contract with. A large number of hides were found in their possession bearing the government brand.
