THE WYOMING SHERIFFF WHO FREED FRANK CANTON FOR THE MURDER OF JOHN TISDALE ATTESTS THAT HE HAS DELIVERED A SUBPOENA
 
WILLIAM G. "RED" ANGUS. Autograph Document Signed: "W.G. Angus/Sheriff" on docket panel, 4p, 3½8½. Johnson County, Wyoming, circa October 1892. In full: "State of Wyoming SS/County of Jefferson/I hereby certify that I received the within Subpoena on the 17th day of September A.D. 1892 and served the same by reading to Asa Shuck on the 6 day of October A.D. 1892 Addam Tanksley not found horse hire $2.00". Document, which is imprinted "Subpoena" on front, is a summons to Asa C. Shuck and Adam Tanksley to appear at the "District Court of the State of Wyoming, to be holden in Buffalo, on the 15th day of November A.D. 1892, for the trial of causes arising under the laws of said State, then and there to testify as a witness..." The State of Wyoming is listed as the Plaintiff and Ira E. Walker is listed as Defendant. Also signed on summons side by the Clerk of the Court, the Clerk of the District Court of Johnson County and the Deputy Clerk. Also signed by a Cleark and by the Prosecuting Attorney on the front in a receipt stamp. This form was originally used by the Territory of Wyoming; Territory has been crossed out and "State" written in. William Galispie "Red" Angus (1849-1921) was a former "professional bartender" in Buffalo before being elected Sheriff of Johnson County in 1889. He served until 1983, during the tense period of the Johnson County War. Angus, who sided with the small ranchers against the big cattlemen, is best known for his lax police work in an investigation of the slaying of homesteader John Tisdale in December 1891. Despite a strong case against Frank Canton, who himself had been a Deputy U.S. Marshal and Sheriff of Johnson County, Angus' slovenly approach to the case led to Canton being freed. Lightly creased with folds, not at signature. ¼-inch separations at upper and lower blank margins at mid-vertical fold. Embossed stamp at the "Sh" of Sheriff. Lightly soiled. Overall, fine condition.
