YE COMPETENT WITNESS.
k. LEGEND OF TE tiltVN'D JUKEE.
It w:ts ye competent witnessc
Was scrvexl witb a sub-p.,
To MM and tcatitie bMN
Ye tuodtl (iraud Juree,
As to ye tauililerb' wicked ways
And much iuiquitie.
"For," said ye jtidire, severely,
"Ye should not summon tliosc
Who naught do ken of ye timer's Am
But by MM)1 and 'suppo&eV
Hut tLoe who know ye animile fierce
From ye tail-top to yc nose."
"Go forth, eo forth, my bold baylitfe,"
Thus did llMI filMirffll teach,
"Find t!iose who know how 'lis themselves
And can Iks pot to peach,
For iu this Ml lie that knows most is
MMl reticent of speech."
"Spare not ye down-town merchant prince,
BMMMM bMh bull and bear,
Yes, yc book President from his desk,
Ye deacon from his prayer,
Ye patrolman from his lamp-post gnujj
Subpoena aud do not spare."
And thus ye competent witness
Came before yc (irand Juree.
tinoth a hold juror: "Be not frightened, for
We will not injure thee.
We all are friends;" then the well-waxed cuds
Of his mustache twitched with glee.
And that competent witness answered them :
" 'Ti a goodly companie,
On this table green were a lay-out seen,
And chips of ivorye,
Tern, silver box and of cards a pack,
More homelike it would be."
"Forbear, Jorbe.tr," said a juror stern,
"Belay thy heedless jaw,
Why pnMM ol lay-outs, chips, aud cards?
Such things we never saw.
We are met lor Justice '.o 'call the turn ;'
And ye 'soda' here is law !"
He wink"d respert'ully. tok yc oath,
Aud epake to that Grand Juree :
"On a certain day, I happened to str.iv
To ye hell of Mike MeD.,
And he said to me that owner was he
Of that sinful propertee."
"Was he dealing ye game P said a brave jur
or, "He was, but he left his chair
To see a man, and his saceesa-or
If I ye truth MM swear
Was" "Speak," 6aid ye lorcman "Well, it
Ye gentleman over there."
Then around ye circle ran a frown,
A frown of tierce ftrtfM,
Said another juror : "Were there there
Any plajera that you knew?"
"Aye," said the witness, "you I saw,
Aud you, and you, and you."
"0, sintul men!" said a Deacon bold,
"To be seen in such u place !
I wonder that ye dare to look
Good Mr. Seed in ye face.
Praise Heaven, that me none e'er did sec
Belling npou ye ace."
"You're talking," ye competent witness cried,
"None e'er saw such a thing.
I mind DM well when it befell
You boefcod ye beast last spring
You ne'er did place a chip M ye ace,
You always coppered the King!"
"Ah, wanting hypocrite !" cried one.
"But we have Gaskii 6 here,
In plain public view we shall have you
As a witness swilt appear.
O, competent w itness, what was ye place,
Ye hour, day, month, and year ?"
Up spake ye competent witness then :
"1 think it w.is las' spring,
But you can better liv ye day
Than I, by remembering
'Twas ye very niirlit ymi won thirteen times
In suscession on ye King."
There fell a hush on that (irand Juree,
Then ye competent witness spake:
"An ye would learn who call ye turn
Aud deal ye card, forsake
These tactics. Answer question not,.
Give evidence dou't take !"
There fell a hush upon them all,
And softly as a priw)
Ye competent witness took his hat
And vanished lrom liicir sight.
Iu a whisper of awe. said a boid jur-aw:
1 don't know but he's right."

live hundred Indians who are notorious as ! A., and to educate them as practical tele
expert koMB and cattle thieves, which every
man that has had a herd of stock in this
section of the country can testiliy to. This
band is lead by a sub Chief, named Mariana,
who has considerable enterprise in raising
stock ; he left Fort Sumner about the year
1867 with the rest of the Indians and walk
ed all the way to this place, having no ani
mal to ride, and now he has thirty head of
horses, over two hundred head of beef cattle,
(six of which he stole of the butcher at this
post) and two thousand hea l of sheep. Now,
if a white man on so small a capital hud
shown such a disposition for stock raising,
the probabilities are that he wouM have
been hung or sent to prison. I have known
ludians belonging to this band to tun ofT
stock from this reservation and when report
ed to the commanding oftlctr, the persons
were asked how they knew the Indians had
taken them, and that they did not believe
the report ; but most generally- a reward of
five or ten dollars brought back the stolen
property. A soldier that has two mules cf
his own had them run dr in daylight ; he
traced them to an Indian encampment about
two miles from the post but stiil on the res
ervation, and from information received
from an Indian the soldier reported the fact
to his company commander, who reprimand
ed the soldier and gave him to understand
that he did not wish him to make such ac
cusations against the Indiana. This Chief
nnd his band the Governor has tried to have
removed to their proper reservation at Fort
Defiance. The order for their removal has
beaa received from Wasuincton, and also a
request from the Airent to that elFect, but
the commanding otlicer gives as an excuse
