THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, PHOENIX, SATURDAY MORNING-, MAY 24, 1890.
Lieutenant Watson Talks
The Number Who are Still
No Truth in the Last Report of Ono
of Them Ueiiiff Killed Story
of the Murder.
Three or four of the Apacho renegades
. are still at large.
"It has been reported recently that
another of the Apache murderers of
Sheriff Reynolds and Deputy Sheriff
Holmes had been killed in Mexico,"said
Lieutenant Watson, of San Carlos, to a
reporter of The Republican last night.
Lieutenant "Watson was sitting under
the awning of tho Hotel Lemon as he
apofce, and he settled back more com
fortably into his cliair before continu
ing. "But I do not believe tho report.
There was nothing to verify tho report,
you see. But if tho report bo true, it
leaves only three of tho (lends at large.
No," lie went on reflectively, in re
sponse to a question, "I can hardly
inako an accurate guess as to tho where
abouts of the renegades at present. It
has been three weeks since I was at San
Carlos. At last accounts, they wcro
headed northward and wero supposed
to be making for the reservation. If
they have gone there their killing is
only a matter of a few days. I am a lit
tle surprised that we have not heard of
Tho murder of Reynolds and Holmes
forms one of the most thrilling.perhaps,
of all the tales of Apacho iiendishness
related in tho history of Arizona. The
Apaches who did the killing, eight in
number, were being taken from
Globe to Yuma penitentiary by Reyn
olds and Holmes, who also had in
charge a Mexican prisoner who had
been sent up because he had, while
drunk, sold a horso that did not
belong to him. Tho prisoners were
handcuffed, and all were in a big
stago driven by a man named Pendleton.
There are several high mountains on the
road from Globe to Florence, and as it
was very difficult for the horses to draw
the heavy load, half tho Indians were
made to walk up each hill, tho left hand
of ono being handcuffed to the right
hand of tho other, leaving two free
hands for each pair of Apaches walking.
Reynolds walked behind tho first pair
and Holmes behind tho second, and
four Indians, handcuffed and shackled,
were left in tho stage. Tho Mexican
prisoner was also on foot.
This method of proceeding was tried
successfully several times, until the last
big hill between Riverside and Florence
was reached. Here the Indians lagged
back until the stage had gone some little
distance up the hill when, at a given
signal, the four wheeled suddenly and
overpowered their guard. Holmes was
beaten down very quickly, his pistol
taken away and he was shot. Royn
dolds, who had on a heavy overcoat,
was not so easily overcome, but was
forced to yield up his life after a des
Meanwhile, the Mexican saw how
things were going and, running quickly
to the stage, told the driver of what had
happened. Pendleton at once bade tho
Mexican jump upon the stage with him,
hiding the man in the boot, and then
attempted to whfp up his horses and es
cape. The stage was heavy, however,
and the Indians traveled fast, and,
jiresently, a well directed shot struck
Pendleton in tho face, ranging back into
his head. The wound was not fatal,
although the driver, who had been in
Indian fights before, tumbled to the
rround and laid still as though dead.
The Mexican, jumping from the boot,
(scaped into the brush.
Tho Apaches released their fellow
captives, rilled the supposed dead body
of the driver, as well as the lxxlies of
Reynolds and Holmes, and then mashed
in tho heads of the officers. Fortunately
for Pendleton, his wound bled so pro
fusely that they did not deem it neces
mry to inflict further injury upon him.
The Apaches then made off, and tho
Mexican, who was subsequently par
tloned by Governor Wofley, brought the
news into Florence.
The Indians continued at large, with
troops in pursuit, until one of them was
killed in Mexico. This was the first
fccn of tho renegades. Subsequently
one of them is known to have died, and
the rest scattered.
Two weeks ago two more of them were
killed on tho reservation near San Car
los, leiiig ambushed and shot down by
separate parties of scouts. These scouts
brought in tho cars as proof that they
had killed the men, and Captain Ihillis
sent out Chief of Scouts Seibert, who
positively identified the bodies as those
of two of the murderers.
A reward of $500 had been offered by
the renegades, which amount is now
claimed by the slayers of these two at
S'an Carlos, but as there were eight of
the Apaches tho scouts who killed two
are entitled to only one-fourth of the
Hum which Governor Wollley will pay
A very close watch is being kept for
the renegades still at large.

A citizen who wos passing by a house,
on Indian street tho other day, says the
Detroit Free 1'rett, observed smoke com
ing through the roof near the chimney,
and he rushed up to tho door and
knocked an alarm.
"What do you want?" asked the
woman as she appeared.
"Madame, don't get excited, but I
must tell you"
"Oh, I shan't get excited," she inter
rupted. "I always keep this hady by."
And she lugged out a big revolver,
which hung on one of the pegs of hot
rack, and continued:
. "No clocks wanted. No rugs wanted.
No books wanted. No sewing-machines
wanted. No cold victuals or old
clothes to give away. Travel."
And he had to retire to a position out
tide the gate and inform her that tho
roof was on fire.
Philadelphia Timet : "I guess I'll go
out and get a little air." He inado this
remark as the curtain fell. On his re
turn she noticed several peculiarities.
'You got your cvclonc, did you?" sho
asked affectiona'tely. "What do you
mean?" "Oh, a cyclone is so much
stronger than mere air, you know."
