St. Lot'i!", Jan. 2. Captain Ocorgo I).
Wallace of the Seventh Cavalry, who was
killed at the battle with the Indians nu
Porcupine Creek on .Monday, was for
merly located nt Jefferson Ilarracks, Im
mediately south of St. Louis, and his
striking figure and rcmarki hi uly frtTiu
wcro familiar here. Ho wa linrn In
South Carolina, and graduated from West
Point In 1H7L1, Ho was nsslgnel to the
frontier. Under leaders like Custer and
lleno he soon became acquainted vv 1th
the wajs of Indians, idthouitji pralrio life
was new to him.
After having become acquainted with
tho tactics followed In lighting Indians lie
was often given in charge of expedition
In which considerable strategy was re
quired to niako them successful, lie took
a lending part in tho winter campaign of
1870 against the Sioux in the Black Hills.
On the day that Custer fell, Wallace, then
o nontenant, was twenty mill's away from
the srene. He illstlngiilshcd.htnisclf us
an Indian lighter anil becaino u captain
on September L'l, ISft'i,
Not long after he was detailed as In
structor lu the school ut Leavenworth.
While at that military post ha met tho
woman who, four years ago, became Ids
wife. From Fort Leavenworth lie camo
to M. Louis, assuming charge of tha
school of rllle practlco at tho Jefferson
Ilarracks. About a year ago he was again
sent to tlie frontier, It Is said of Captain
Wullaco that during the winter campaign
that marked tha closing vcars ot the 70 s
and thcnpcnlngof tho 80's, ho had often
gone for nights at a time without slcccp
so that his tired sentinel could rest.
On one occasion ho took tho coat off lite
own back and wound It around the shoul
ders of a sick soldier who had lost his
while tho company was fording a river.
Ills brother otllcers at JolTcrson Ilarracks
frequently told him ho was tho ugliest
man tho barracks had ever seen, and he
was willing to admit it. lu fact he made
a boast of It, and one day in the olllcer's
ilub room he said If ever an uglier man
than he came to Jefferson Ilarracks he
would set up the beer for all tho boys.
Then tho olllccrs changed their lino of
attack. Every day or two they would
nroducen mnn "who is uirller than Wnl.
lace." The captain w ould not agree with
them and steadily refused to pay for the
beer. Ono day ho was looking over a
batch of now recruits. Ono face caught
his attention. Ha called the man forward
and looked him over. Presently the enp-
lain saiu: -uo to me suiier s store nun
get a keg of beer wltha spiggot hi it. Tell
liim to charge It to me."
"What for?" asked tho recruit, who
had not much experience lu obeying
The captain was good enough to ex
plain. "I promised," ho said, "that if
ever an uglier man than I came to Jefler
son ilarracks I would set up the beer. Go
get tho keg."
"No," said the recruit, as he stepped
back and took a simaru look at the cap
tain, "you haven't lost it yet."

JUDGE MILLER'S MILL
MUCH OHIST BROUGHT TO IT BY THE
Typical Cases That Were Disposed of by
Ills Honor To-Ilnj Ills nnd Little
Cilinlnals Cnnsbt and Hell In the
Scoop-Net of the Law,
The police were very lenient jcsterdiy
lowuidst huso who celebrated the Incom
ing ot (lie year 1801. When Olllccr' Pat
rick Madlgan looked nl the prisoners In
tho cells this morning ho found that ho
only had nineteen, a number consider
ably smaller then on ordinary davs.
llldgo Miller took tho bench at 0.30
o'clock and began with tho District ews.
The Ilrst prisoner called was W. It.
Jordan, who pleaded guilty to being dis
orderly, "'llio Una Is W," said Juilgo
"That's loo light," Interrupted Olllcer
Miles, "because 1 found tills man with an
open knife in his hand looking for a light
on North Capitol street. He did not seem
toraTo who hccaiiio lu contact with and
was looking for a light." Two witnesses
testified thnt they saw Jordan with a knife
in his hand approaching every one that
ho met on the street.
"What have you to say about this?"
asked Judgo Miller.
"Nothing, your Honor," said tho pris
oner. "Then I will change the lino from $." to
$20," added Judge Miller.
Mike Barrett and Adam Jones pleaded
guilty to the charge of vagrancy, hut Joe
Colfec. nicused of tho same offense, said
that he was simply showing tho boys how
to Initiate the New Year. Olllcer Mason
told tho Judgo how loud nud talkative the
defendant had been, and intimated that
he picked up a brick with the intention of
hitting him with it. 'The Hue lu this
case is 5," said the Judge.
Olllcer llushan had William Deasncy,
charged with cruelty to animals, llewas
found last night driving n horsowlth n
eali loaded with passengers. Tho animal
was not lu a condition to walk and com
pletely fagged out. Tho penalty was $3.
In connection with this caso Hiimano Of
ficer Key told tho Court that tho lines ro
turnablo to thu association for tho year
1800 were $018.07. Thoso In 1831 wero
$183 25, and the largest amount ever re
ceived was In 1881, when tho figures
The olllccrs of the Second Precinct mado

Olllccr Dean said to Judge Miller that

that lime ho had done nothing hut loaf
around and drink all the whisky ho could
get. Ho was given ninety duys lu default
