tlio secret of Jackson's power and in*

wo invited him into tho back room,

was the notorious Major Graham,
who was ho well known in Denver
aa one of the most dangerous of dars

native of Now York, and in the early
part of the war becamo a conspicu^
ous partisan commandor of tlie
Union forcoain North Carolina. II?
was a perfect athlete, a splendid horso
tnan, an accurate shot, and as daring
and unscrupulous as any man whoever
drew a8ubro. For his services he
waa appointed, at tlio close of the
war, a lirst Lieutenant in the regu-<
lar army, and assigned to duty in the
west. By the scrvicca ho rendered
against the Indians, aided by more
or less political influonces, Lieut.
Qrahatn soon became a full blown
Major, and aesuch bccamo a special
favorito at Fort Leavenworth and in
tho city of that natnc. While at this
post he paid liis addrossos to 0110 of

which tho coromony was to t-ike
placo tlie commanding officer at Fort
Lcavenwoith received direct instructions
from tho War Department to
place Major Graham in irons, and
keep him in solitary confinement till
further orders. Although the order
created an immense sururiso nt tl.n
fort, it was literally obeyed, and
Major Graham ffiund himself in a
felon's cell, instead of occupying, as'
he had hoped, a bridal couch. A
court martial, bowover, subsequently
explained what seemed at tho time
to bo inexplicable. Tho evidence
beforo the conrt established the fact
that Major Graham while wearing the
i honorable uniform of aTJnifr.rl Sulfas
oflicor, had been tho socret head of a
band of horse thieves in Kansas; had
also, while in Utah, been in league
with tho lowest elass of gamblers and
thieves; and that ho had systematically
stolen and sold horses from tho
stables of tho Government. The
court martial sentenced thn Miiim
bo dishonorably dismissed from tho
servieo, to bo debarred from ever
holding any oflieo of honor jr trust
under the Government, and to servo
a term of ten years in a military
prison. Through some unknown in^
flucnce this sentence was endorsed
only so far as it related to the dismissal
of tho Major from tho ser*
As soon ns lie was in possession of
a qualified freedom, tlio Maj >v started
fur Denver, and liore became, as
of yoro, the associate of evil and
dangerous classes. His lirst attempt
at public robbery was made on payj
master Brooks, at River Bond. For
I this oft'once ho was tried and sons
touced to two years in tho ponitentiary.
15oforo hia term expired ho
organized an escapo, which proved
partially successful. Wo say partial
because ho and his associates made
good their escapo, but they wero all
subsequently capturod, ono of thorn
