From the Dec. 15, 1921 Campbell County Record:
Jack Murphy, J.B. Henley, and Frank McGraw are the names given by three men arrested in the city this week for selling merchandise within the city limits without a license. They are being held on a charge of grand larceny, on a showing that the goods were stolen from a Burlington freight car. It is alleged the men entered the car at a point east of here, probably Moorcroft, and threw the goods off near Minturn. They hired a car at Gillette to bring the goods to town, and they were trying to dispose of the loot when Marshal Russell picked them up for peddling without a license. Burlington Special Agent Kilgore identified the merchandise, consisting of a quantity of rugs and some smaller articles. It is reported that the men have admitted their guilt. The goods, destined for a Montana point, was an inter-state shipment, and the case will probably become a federal case.
From the Dec. 6, 1935 News Record:
Wyoming Day will be celebrated in this state on Dec. 10th, commemorating the action of the Wyoming territorial governor who, on Dec. 10, 1869, approved the law enacted by the Wyoming Legislature which gave women the right to vote. A law was enacted on Feb. 19, 1935, setting aside this day to keep in the minds of citizens of the state the important action taken by the early Legislature. Gov. Miller has issued a proclamation urging “appropriate exercises commemorating the history of the territory and state and the lives of its pioneers, who were men of broad vision and undoubted courage and who realized the value of liberty and equality.”
From the Dec. 16, 1943 News Record:
Civilians were urgently requested by the office of defense transportation today to give up all pleasure trips on trains or intercity buses from Dec. 17 through Jan. 10. Civilians also were asked to defer even necessary travel, whenever possible, until after Jan. 10. Joseph B. Eastman, ODT director, said willingness to put up with crowded travel conditions afforded no excuse for disregarding the ODT request to stay off trains and buses during the holidays. The point to remember, he said, is that civilians who take pleasure trips, particularly over the holiday period make it harder, or even impossible, for railroads and bus lines to provide transportation for all members of the armed forces and for business men who must travel regardless of holidays. Previously, Mr. Eastman had asked all government agencies and all government agencies and all private employers to refrain from granting vacation leaves or time-off to employees, where travel would be involved, from Dec. 17 to Jan. 10. “The request applies to every civilian,” Mr. Eastman said. “I must add that I do not see how any civilian can ignore it in good conscience, when all travel facilities are so badly needed to accommodate our men and women in uniform and those who must travel on war business, holiday or no holiday.”
