Pioneer Recalls Slaying of Three Men by Neil Kelley Greybull Correspondent GREYBULL -- Ninety-two year old Frederick Samuel Warren vividly remembers the senseless slaughter of three men near Manderson in 1909. One of those killed was Joe Allemand, who lived with his wife and two children on Spring Creek between Ten Sleep and Worland. Allemand was well liked by both the cattlemen and the sheepmen of the area although he ran sheep and the cattlemen had set up a line over which sheep were taboo. Allemand was in some financial difficulty for some of his sheep had been lost in a couple of raids so he had sold a partnership to another Spring Creek rancher, Joe Emge. The latter, a squatty dark man, was not so well thought of. At one time he had been with the cattlemen but after taking over the sheep he had boasted that he'd graze his sheep any place he liked and that he'd run the cattlemen off the range. On this April day in 1909, the two sheep men were driving two bands of sheep across the bad lands from Worland to the Spring Creek ranches. Allemand had telephoned his wife that he would be home that evening. Listeners over the party line hurried to inform some of Emge's enemies that Allemand would not be in the camp and Emge would be alone with the herder and the camp tender. But after the camp had been made with one band on the north side of the creek and the other band on the south side with the sheep wagons set one in each camp, two brothers who lived near by stopped to visit and eat supper and by the time they left, Allemand thought it was too late to ride on home. He and his young nephew, Jules Lazier, a French subject, and Emge went to sleep in the upper wagon. A recently hired young sheep herder, 16 year old Bounce Helmer and another Frenchman, Pete Cafferel, were in the lower wagon. When it grew dark the raiders struck, two going torward the wagon with the sheepmen and the other five after the sheep. Shots were fired at the herds and Helmer fearing for his dog sprang, half dressed out of the other wagon. He was immediately captured by the raiders, who dragged Cafferel out also and both were tied up. Helmer who had lighted a lantern was able to see and recognize some of the men. Cafferel was in the dark and didn't know any one. When no one came out of the upper wagon, the two men who were near it started firing into it. One of them started a fire by throwing kerosine from Helmer's lantern on the sage brush piled under it in readiness for the morning fire. As Allemand came out of the wagon he was shot and killed, the fire grew so rapidly Emge and the young nephew were trapped. When the raiders found they had killed the wrong man, they left hurriedly and the herder and camp tender ran to the neighbors for help. It was noon the next day before Big Horn County sheriff, Felix Alston and young Judge Percy Metz reached the scene of the raid. They were accompanied by a group of Masons from Basin and Worland who performed the funeral rites for Allemand, whose body was still lying near the smoking embers of the sheep wagon. In the embers the body of Emge lay with both legs and one arm burned off. The body of Jules Lazier was not so badly charred. Seven men were eventually arrested for the crime, two, Albert Keys and George Ferris turned state's evidence and told the whole story. They were lodged in the Sheridan jail and the other five in the Basin jail. A long trial was held late in the fall of 1909 and two men were sentenced to five years in the penetentiary on second degree murder charges and the other three sentenced to two years for arson charges. All the principals in the case are dead. Bounce Helmer, chief witness, was the last to die a few years ago. Joe Allemand's wife later married a man named Callahan and moved to Montana where he died. Mrs. Allemand-Callahan is still living. She is 85 and lives in Ellensburg, Washington. Warren, who rented farms in the area for several years, later bought one of his own. He and his family of two stepsons and three daughters moved to Basin in 1917 and rented the 100 acre farm they later bought. Mr. and Mrs. Warren were separated in 1920 and she and the children went to Washington where she died in 1947. Warren was born in Black Hawk, Colorado, April 20, 1874, and grew up and went to school in Black Hawk and Longmont, Colo. Later he spent some time in Denver, coming to Cody in 1903. He got a job cleaning off a lawn the next morning and he moved his family into a nice big upstairs apartment house for which he paid $10 a month rent. He now rents a small room in a Greybull apartment house for $10 a week. He worked some on the ranch in Big Trails. He lived in the area of the Spring Creek raid and trial until two and a half years ago when he came to Cody canal but left Cody in June 1903 to work on a hay to Grey Bull. He sold his ranch just last year to Maryland Bros. of Emblem.

Warren's tombstone gives his birth year as 1874, as does the article above, but there is a tendency to say 1880, probably based on the censuses.
