Dateline: Henryville. Six men were killed and more than a dozen were lightly injured when a gunfight erupted in the town square moments before the new sheriff was named.

The wanted criminal Sven Anderson masterminded the attack, evidently in reprisal against Mister Henry Wallinger’s recent efforts against him with regards to the smashing of the gold forging ring last month. Anderson was initially believed killed in firefight but later discovered to have escaped.

Philip Stanson was discovered posthumously to have won the position of sheriff but his death means a new election must be called.

Dateline: Christian’s Folly. A fierce gunfight between a law enforcement posse and a small criminal band took place in the ruins of Christian’s Folly yesterday. This engagement came as a result of a many week investigation into a false gold nugget scheme that has been plaguing Frome County for the last several months.

Five of the criminals were killed in the shoot-out and five members of the gang managed to escape, including the suspected ringleaders, Zeke and Sven Andersson. No law enforcement agents were killed although reports indicate at least one was injured and there were four bodies discovered at the scene who have been tentatively identified as ranch-hands employed by Mister James Ponty of the Pontypine Ranch.

The acting-sheriff of Henryville, H.J. MacKenzie, led the investigation but has offered no comment on his plans for the rest of the gang.

Dateline: Steaming Rock. Men led by the notorious bandits, Gerald and Karl Filmore, tried to make an early withdrawal from the bank on Tuesday, but found themselves surrounded on all sides by locals and were promptly gunned down. At least five of bandits were killed in the confrontation.

According to eyewitness reports, the bandits panicked at the sight of the defenders and shot first, which freed up the locals to retaliate.

Local deputy, Michael Dimsmore, was instrumental in fending off the would-be thieves. Both Filmores were killed in the exchange.

Among the local defenders was a visiting Henry Wallinger who, along with the acting-sheriff of Henryville, H.J. MacKenzie, were escorting several recently apprehended bandits to the local jail.
