from Arrow, Colorado, that Neal
Ragland, a son of A. T. Ragland,
one of the best known farmers in

A dispatch to the Denver Post from
the scene of the tragedy gives tin*
following account of the affair:

near Denvei, wagon boss for Orman
& Crook, the Moffat, line railroad
contractors, was shot through the
heart last night by Constable Neal
Ragland and instantly killed. Rug-
land lias surrendered himself, claim-
“Reynolds came to Arrow yester-
day from the Orman & Crook camp
and begun drinking. Last night lie
was in an ugly mood and while eat-
ing supper in the restaurant at the
rear of .lack Gray ham’s saloon, pull-
ed out his revolver and began shoot-
ing up the place. Every person in
the building liecame alarmed ami

and when under the influence of

distance away from the suloon, heard
the shooting ami went to investigate*.

ant he attempted to pacify Reynolds
but the latter became abusive. Rag-
land then told Reyuolds lie was un-

me; now you get out of here.’ Rey-

men, and tin* ot!leer promptly turned
on bis heel und walked out of the
place and went to got bis gun. Rey-
nolds followed him to the door,
cursing him all the time and defying
‘Constable Ragland returned in
five minutes with bis gun. Reynolds
had gone out on the street, ltagland

him to throw up his hands but in-
