The Cheyenne State Leader for February 17, 1917: Border watched, Guard coming home.

The same news that Cheyenne's Tribune reported was reported in a less dramatic fashion in the Leader.  The Army was now patrolling the border and the Guard was coming home.  Indeed, one Guard officer was already back, heralding the arrival, surely, of more of the State's troops.

On local troops, of a sort, Governor Kendrick was reportedly going to report to President Wilson how good the local JrROTC was looking.  And railroads, a big deal in southern Wyoming, were reportedly ready for war (although that would go less smoothly than might be supposed).

Prohibition took a knockout blow, apparently, in Cheyenne before the Legislature adjourned.
