A DOSE OF JUSTICE.
LADLED OUT WITH A LIBERAL HANC
BY JUDGE HOKE.
The Court Consideru the Case of An.
zona Sm. General Bad Man, and
Disposes of It Without the AL of
Advice From Hie Lawyer.
[Copyright, 1900, by C. B. Lewis.]
"This yere case," said Judge Hoke.
as he called the court to order, "ap
peals to me not only as the legally
elected and only jestice of the peace fur
the county of Cold Chuck. but to every
man in these diggin's who carries a gun
and is supposOd to hey the sand to take
keer of hisself. It is the case of Arizonai
Sam versus Pete the IIalf Breed,
and Sam is the complainant. I se" be's
got a lawyer yere to gab fur him, but
that lawyer won't hey uo talkin to do.
"Let us begin at the beginnin. Ari
zona Sam strikes this town a year ago.
le has a yell like a fog horn and he
weighs 200 pounds. 1ie wears two
guns and a knife, and he bites the
tops off a dozen beer bottles to show
that he was born In a cyclone and cra
dled in a hurricane. Uie was sized up
fur a bad man, and fur months and
months he's bin cock of the walk. I
can't remember that he's killed any
body, but that was bekase everybody
swallered his bluffs and stepped around
softly. He has defied the vigilance
committee and he has bluffed this court,
and it'll astonish ye to find out jest
what sort of a critter he is. Yesterday
mornin he starts over the hills fur Tin
Cun City. Or the way he meets Pete
the Half Breed. M'st of ye know
Pete and most of ye her heard thet
he's got no backbone. Pete was ridin
his cayuse and Sam was hoofin it.
When they come together Sam holds
up his hand and says:
"'Git off'n that hoss!'
"'What fur?' asks Pete.
"'Bekase I want him.'
"'But he's mine.'
"Then Sam calls him a string of
names 40 rods long. He abuses Pete's
father and mother and all the rest of
"GIT OFF'N TH AT BoSS i"
his relations. He chanks his teeth and
rolls his eyes and pulls his guns. He
wants that eayuse, and he wants him
Inside of two minutes. Ye may figger
that Pete. who hadn't any gun with
him, turned pale and fell out of the
saddle with a thump, but ye'll be mis
taker If ye do. it took him some
leet~e time to realize the situashun, but
hie didn't skeer. When he got things
straight he slid off his critter and lit
on to Sam. Did the bold, bad man who
