RIOT
In a Justic's Court at Sinnett, Noble County. Perry, May 16. At Sinnett in the exreme southern portion of Pawnee county, a regular riot occurred Thursday in Justice Wallace's court. County Attorney E.M. Clark, of Pawnee, who is well known throughout Kansas, went to Sinnett to prosecute Charles Lenox and Joe Casey. When court opened Lenox and Casey put a Winchester and some pistols on the judge's desk and told him he must keep order with them. Very soon after the court opened Casey and Lenox began fighting, and soon others were engaged. Some began sluggng the county attorney and told him he had better go back home, which he did. There was considerable blood shed and the county attorner has sworn out warrants for nearly every man in the court house, but the case must be tried in Pawnee. Sinnett is located in the triangle, - right on a spot in the Dalton-Doolin outlaws tramping grounds for years.
