In un nrfnlr at Merry Hie, In .the Hhenan
itonh vnlle), 111 August, WU, "nn Incident
'C.-urred which Rave me great vexation nt
the time, but which nfterwords seemed so
romlcul that t always lough when I think
of It, My scouts had Infotmed me that n
iarge tonvoy wn on the way from liar
pcr'B l'errv with supplies for Sheridan's
Rimy In the Shenandoah valley. It was
heavily gunrded by cavalry nnd Infantry.
As soon as I heard of It, I Btarted oft with
my command over the Uluc (tldgo to Inter,
rcpt the train before It Kot to Sheridan.
An Um going to attack nt least ten times
my own number my only hope was In a
surprise and ci eating a pinlc. This would
be impossible If the enemy got notice that
we were coming nnd had time for prepara
tion. We hud crossed the Shenandoah river
and marched all night. About daybieuk
we could distinctly hear the rumbling of
the ti.ilna on the hard pike. They were
mnrchlng at night on account of the In
tense he.it In the daytime.
I was riding a mile In advance with John
J.(usell, of Clarke county, who knew the
country well; John lleckham nnd Stockton
Terry, when, nbout sunrlc, we entn In
full view of the vnllev pike along which the
train was passing. Then- was a heavy fog
which concealed us from the enemy. The
white covers of the wagons could be dlmlv
(ecu through the morning mist. One of
the men was sent back full speed to tell
Ouptaln William Chapman to hurry up
with the whole command. We wele within
SO or ZOO yards of our prey, but they were
ib unconscious of danger as the antedilu
vians were of the coming Hood. Wo waited
for Chapman with breathless expectation.
1 fell some of the oppression and awful
forebodings which It is said that even the
great soul of Caesar felt when he hatted
on the banks of the Ilublcon. I was about
to do what all men would say. If I failed,
was an act of desperntlon, A successful
blow struck then at Sheridan's communi
cation would, I knew, make it deep Im
pression on him ami have much influence
on the result of the campaign, l'alluie
niennt, In nil probability, the Ios of my
command. I played for a great stake and
Chapman soon came up at a trot. The
men, all ready and eager tor the nay, si
lence was golden. All spoke In whispers.
It was an open pastoral country with stone
fences. A small clump of trees concealed
us from the unsupectlng enemy. In n few
words the order for the attack was given
Captain Dolly Itlchnrds (now Judge Rich
ards of Louisville, Ky.,) was sent towaids
tho head of the train with his squadron,
consisting of two companies commanded by
Lieutenants Wren, Joe NeNon and Harry
Hatcher. William and Sam Chapman, with
their companies went down low-aids the
rear of tho train. I had a small mountain
howitzer, which, with Glasscock's compa
ny, was kept with me. The little gun was
run up on an eminence not over a hundred
yards from the column moving along the
pike. They could then see us, but no doubt
ihought we were their own people, who
were taking a view of the beautiful pan
orama spread befoie us. Lieutenants 1 ray
and Frank Iialim had charge of the gun.
Glasscock's compiny, which was support
ing the gun. was kept out of sight over the
hills, as I did not want to attract the en
The biiibtlmr of a shell In their midst
wa to be the first announcement of our
nrrlvnl and the signal for Itlchards and
Chapman tn charge. In a few seconds Bub
cock had unllmbeied the gun nnd the cav
alry was ready lor action, when a new
enemy, on which we had not counted, made
his appearance on the ilelil, diove the men
fiom the gun before they could load it
nnd came near upsetting all my plans.
Just as the men started to ram down a
charge In the gun a swaim of yellow-jackets
came living out of tho ground. They
appeared to have no fe-ir of tho cavalry
or the artillery, and evidently regarded
our piesence us nn Invasion ot their right
lo local self-government. As they were
under ground and we were on top 1
thought they ought to have stayed where
they were. They had evidently Imbibed
the spirit ns well as adopted the policy of
the Southern people, who hud gone to war
for "their rights in the teirltorles." All
that we asked of tho vellovv Jackets was,
In the language of -Mr. Jefferson Davis,
"to be let alone." Hut this was the very
thing that they were not willing to do.
They flew at the gunners and settled down
on the battery horses: the drivers could
not hold their homes and light yellow Jack
ets at the same time. They could stand
bullets, but tho tilings of Insects were too
much tor lliem.
(.tinners, Olivers and norses all ran off,
taking the limber chest and enlSFon with
them. 1 was riding a line sorrel mine
which we had eaptmed the e.ir before
with a Colonel Uusell, who had been ex
changed, and was then serving on (Jcneial
Torbeit's .-tall' lie told me that she had
belonged to General I'hll Kearney. A
HWdim settled down upon her; the sting
ing made her perfectly frantic, nnd she
uegun rearing and plunging. 1 could with
dllltculty keep my seat In the saddle, and
almost forgot that there was anything In
this world hut yellow Jackets.
During this scene, we weie in plain view
nnd within a hundred yards of the enemy.
Fortunately, thiough the mitt, they could
not distinguish giay fiom blue. At the
couit of Inquliy. which was called to In
vestlgntn the conduct of General Kenly,
who commanded the train guurd, some nf
the witnesses swoio that we were dressed
In blue. As they stninpeded when the
llrst shot was llred. It Is not probable that
they looked behind to sea what was the
color of our clothes.
As long us wo were shooting ot them
It was all the naino whether we weio
dressed In blue or gray, Fortunately, we
weio iclleved fiom our predicament by
one of tho men i mining up, seizing mid
dragging off the gun. Tho yellow Jackets
held thu Held, but, seeing us retreat, they
did not puisne. Sergeant Il.ilicock soon got
the gun in position nnd ready lor notion,
nnd sent n shell through the marching col
umns on tho pike. It knocked olT the head
of a mule this stopped the whole train.
All was now terror and confusion In tho
enemy's ranks, and eueh man was for tak
ing enre of himself.
The tapldlty with which Fray and Itahm
moved the gun from point to point created
the Impression tlmt several batteries were
llrlng. nnd. of course, that there was a
eoriespondlug number of troops with them,
Ulchurds, with IiIh sriuadion, clunged the
head of the procession, whllo Chapman
and Gl.ist-cock went at their rear. A body
of Infantrv rallied in a Inlek church In the
suburbs of tho town, They opened tire nnd
killed one of the men Welliy Hector but
niehards did not hult. He charged on the
chinch nnd took most of them lulsoneia.
Not since Petei borough, whom Mucuulay
calls tho last of tho knlglits-errant, cup
tuied n walled town In Spain with cav
alry h such a mounted charge been made.
A btrong Imdy of Infantry fanned behind
a stone wall near tlin pike. This did not
stop Chapman and Glasscock u moment.
Thev i ode over the. wall nnd Killed or
captured the defenders. I remember that,
as I was directing tho 111 lug nf the how
lt?er, my sergeant major, Guy llroudvvater,
rationed up to mo and said:
"rnlouel, Lewis Adln Is killed." It was
In iho crisis of the light, and no time to
indole In tender emotions. I replied:
" can't help It." He was n noble boy, anil

The organisation of mv command was en.

the people on the e.ntein tid of the Hlue

Horrible .Murder of I'relly .Minnie Will
lams b) nu I'nkiiiiwn I lend In Man
I'm n i lco.
San Francisco, Cat., April 11. A Sunday
school ten "her, with her "cholais. upon
entering the llmaniiel tl.iptlst church to
day to arrange the llnster decorations,
found the lemalns of a young girl, filght
fully mutilated in the pastor's siudv. ud
Jolnlng the main niidloriiitn. lief clothing
was torn and disheveled and she had ev-di-ntly
bee-n nnult-d Wore she wes
Killed, Or ele her murder was he resi it
of chagrin and rage on th" pait of her
baffled assailant. Her frail body was cov
ered with blood and w omuls. The walls
of the study were bcpatteied with her
blood, and there was a largo red pool under
the table near her feel, us she lav dead A
cut on the wrlt had severed tho nrterles
and tendons. She was mnbbed In each
breast nnd over the heart was a llesh
wound In which was sticking part of a bro
ken blade. Tho ns-nllint had evidently
possessed nil the ferocity of n .lack the
Hipper. The Knife, which was afterward
found, was :i silver handled table knife,
used the. previous evening at a chinch
festival, and was so dull that the victim's
dresj had to bo opened at the breast to en
able the blade to plcrco the llesh. The
body, which was subsequently Identified, Is
that of .Minnie Williams, a domestic, re
siding In Alameda, but a member of Kmnn
uel chuivh In this city. She was about 18
ears of age and remarknbly pretty. She
left her employer's residence In Alameda
yesterday nttcinoon to nttcmi a festival
In the chinch last evening, lemalnlng nil
night with f I lends, and to assist in the
decorations. She wore her best flock n'ld
carried an older dres to wear while work
ing. When tho entertainment closed Inst
evening, she Is piesiimcd to have entered
a closet ndjolnlng the study, lo change her
attire. The sexton, believing eveijone had
gone, tumid out the lights and left tho
church. The girl had an excellent repu
tation, going to no eiiteitainmentH other
than those at the church. She had two
ninle friends, u. dental student, whom she
had not seen lately, and a dental student
who she once mid had Insulted her, and
whom her ft lends suspect ot the murder.
This student, whose home is Deviant,
wrote her yesterda.v asking her to meet
him In San Francisco last night .Miss
Williams was suspicious and refused a
rendezvous but said she would be at the
festival In the church, wheie Deviant
could ee anil converse with her. IlotH
Miss Williams and Deviant were ut the
festival. No one saw either of them leave
the church at Its conclusion
A cuilous coincident In connection with
the murder Is the fact that Miss Williams
was u close friend of Miss lll.inchc La
mont, a young girl from Montana, who ha
been missing lor ten day. .Mis. Noble.
Miss Lament's aunt, was the ill t to dis
cover the dead body of .Miss Williams In
the church. Mrs, Noble to-day received
thiough the mulls a paper in which were
wiapped three ilngs worn by her missing
niece the night she dlsj-ppenred. nn the
paper was the name of Theodore Durant
the young dental student who made the
appointment with Miss Williams, the mur
dered gill, last night. The police have as
yet made nn arrest and the double mvs
tery Is puzzling the whole city. Ml Will
iams, the murdered girl, was not n serv
ant, as at llrst stated. Her parents had
separated, and as her mother could not
support her, the glil was living with friends
who klndlv gave her a home until she
could secure employment.
