[From the San Francisco Chronicle]
Dead men tell no tales and men of
honor do not Inform on their comrades,
especially where they have been pnr
tieeps crimlnls, but after careful In
?inlry the writer of this article believes
that he is the only survivor of a tragedy
that excited tho mining camps of Vir?
ginia City. Oiild Hill and Silver City In
the year 1874, and that no person can
now be troubled by relating the tacts
of a tragedy that have never been told
before. When the big Bonanza excite?
ment was at its height In i st 1 every
person and com puny that owned claims
between Virginia City ami Silver City
made fabulous statements about the
prospects and showing of their prop?
erties. At the lower end of the Cold
Jilll Canyon the Justice and Wulli r
Defeat .Mining companies owned ad
Joining and contiguous properties. Bach
company had erected hoisting work-,
sunk main shafts and had run drills
that coiinct teil both mines. The indica?
tions were tti.it the Waller Defeat mine
was tapping the lower end of the gre at
Comstock lode and would be a bonanxu.
The Justice stockholders secured ml
the Wall r Defeat stock available, and
Claim? d the control or both mines, the
Justice mine being munuged by the
Smith crowd ami the Waller Defeat by
the Kellogg party, fine day in the
summer of isti tie- Smith crowd to u
possession of the Waller Defeat hoi-t?
ing works, and Smith cmployod a man
named Prentice, who had killed a mnn
In the riut?> Hotel, In Gold Mill, in
I87u, und a man named Kvuns, who had
killed a noted desperado in Ploche In
1809, to hold the hoisting w ?rks ami do
all things necessary thereto. Prentice
and 13vans went up to Virginia City
jiikI enlisted two more men to assist
them, procured tour shotguns and a
considerable quantity of ammunition,
and the four men, armed to the teeth,
drove down to the Waller Defeat about
0 o'clock in the afternoon.
Tin- writer, then a mere boy, had been
employed in tin- two mines ami was ac?
quainted with all the shafts, stations
and drifts, and having heard that the
Kellogg party would try to regain pos?
session el" tin- hoisting works that even?
ing, managed to have business tinker?
ing around the hoisting works of the
"Waller Defeat that afternoon, with the
?fXpoetation ?if seeing some1 f ii tl. btl!
never realizing that he was t?.
v> Itness :i terrible slaughter or five men.
When Prentice and Evans, accompa?
nied by two men wliose names I have
never learned, ?ame into the hoisting
works they were armed to tin. teeth,
each man being supplied with :i mUSS
cle-load'lng, double-barreled shot gun
ci.'i a revolver. The whole preparation
and armament Impressed the writer
that the Smith crowd were making a
lug bluff to Intimidate the Kellogg peo?
K ITjT.ED IX ? ?.LH IU.ood
About 7 o'clock in tin- evening live
men armed with shot guns were seen
t. iiilng down tile road, and when (h.-y
reached a point opposite the Waller De?
feat hoisting works they halted and
held a short consultation. The man
thai appeared to be tty. leader was a
brother Of SUpL Kellogg, ami soon 1- fl
his companions standing on the road
thirty feel above the hoisting works.
Kellogg; gun in hand, came down the
embankment and walked nhoul llfteen
feet to the door of the hoisting works,
and in a loud voice demanded admit?
tance. Prentice commanded the writer
to open the door and let him lu. The
door was then unbarred. Kollege was.
entering when Prentice took deliberate
Jilrn nl him and emptied both barrels
of his gun and Kellogg fell In th door?
way riddled with buckshot.
The next moment Evans ami his two
companions took aim at the men stand?
ing on the road and fired, wh r. upon
three men came rolling down th.' em?
bankment. Evans then took aim at the
remaining man ami as the report of his
gun rang out the fifth man of the Kel?
logg posse f. ll dead. When the killing
began the writer wished that he was
somewhere else. Prentice threw Kel
l.gg-s body out of the doorway, and
rl.v.'d and barred the door uf-ain. A
hurried consultation was then had, and
it was decided that they would go down
the shaft and remain in some drift until
the next night, and then go through a
drift that had been made connecting
the Silver Hill ami Waller Defeat
Shafts, n distance of an eighth of a
mile, nnd go down to the ("arson river
and then overland into California, Eacii
of the men was well provided with
money, as mine-fighters received $">o
per day. payable in advance, but they
had no food.
FORCED TO ACT AS GUIDE.
The writer had a tin can full of lunch
that they confiscated. Evans requested
me to go down the shaft with the party
end to act as a guide to lead th. in to
the Silver Hill shaft, I refused to go
with them, whereupon Prentice, who
was really the most determined man
of the parly, drew his slx-ahooter and
leveled It at my head and commanded
me to take my dinner pall and bad
the way down the ladder of the shaft.
I had no discretion in the matter, be?
cause I hnd seen that Prentice would
kill. I therefore obeyed the command
find led the way down the ladder to
the Gnu-foot level and then int.? a drift
leading to the Silver Hill mine, until
we came to a room that had been used
to store giant powder, where the party
halted nnd prepared to remain all
night. I divided the lunch that was
In my can among the party nnd they
were generous with cigars, with which
they were well supplied. 1 listened to
thi-ir conversation about their past
live?, and they did not hesitate to re
Into about desperate fights they had
had and tho men they had killed in the
The two Rtr.mge men each claimed
that th?y had killed men in Montana
nnd t'tah. Some of their stories were
thrilling, but the murders they had
just committed seemed to me t.? out?
class their former crimes. Notwith?
standing the fact that they were In
such a remote hiding place, they were
cautious, anil kept awake ready to kill
The rats were numerous in the drifts,
rooms and stations, ami frequently
made u noise that would startle the
party and cause each man to itrah Ins
gun. <>u the surface thousands of tin ?>
mcstly miners?had guth red and the
four murderers would have been lynch?
ed had the excited crowd caught them.
The possibility of lynching was talked
over by Prentice and his companions,
and they each declared that they would
tight to the death before they would
submit to be captured. Morning came
and we were all hungry, and. as they
had decided to remain in the powd r
room until nigh:. 1 reared we would
suffer with hunger. I i ftered to go back
to the shaft, climb the ladder, and go
to my boarding house and bring back
something to eat and drink. There was
no water and we were also very thirs?
ty. Evans was willing I" trust me. but
Prentice protested and would net allow
i nie to go. He said even It" It would not
betray them, that I might be seen com?
ing out of tie. shaft and perhaps lynch?
ed, and that if captured they would
make un- Inform of the whereabouts of
Prentice and his companions. About
noon that day mir thirst became un?
bearable, and Evans accompanied me
through the drifts and wings to the
Justice mini-, where we dipped somo
water from the bottom or sump of the
incline, which, although no; good drink?
ing water, would <i<" nch our thirst. We
returned to where the others of th"
party were, and remained there until
about :i o'clock at night, when l piloted
the party one-eighth of a mil" to the
Silver Hill shaft. 1 was command) d to
leave the parly about seventy feel from
the Silver Hill shi ft ami to make my
exit from lb" mine through the Waller
Defeat or Justice shaft.
BS( JAPE I IP THE CRIMINALS.
At tie- bottom of t'i" Silver Hill shift
there was wh it is called a station and
a man called the "statlon-tendi r." He
fore leaving tin- powder-room Prentice
made me pr nnlse ma to Inform on
tin in, at' I as they had left Ihclr shot-1
guns in the powder-room and their re?
volvers were concealed in their hlp
pockets, tin .li p, trance of four men
dressed in ordinary street . ? lies did
not excite any great curiosity, and as
the four men got on the cuge the sta
tiOn-tciider gave a three-bell signal and
they were holsti d to the surface, when
Hu y walked Out of the hoisting works
anil made good their escape Into Cali?
fornia. Tho Silver Hill station-tender
afterward informed inn that he did not
know- the men. and that when they
came to him ai d requested to be hoist?
ed to the surf ice they said ihey had
been Searching the mines looking for
ib.- murderers. An ln<|tiesl w is held on
t'ne live bodies in.- murdered men.
but no (lew was obtained a-: to who
tlitl the killing. In about six months
Prentice and Evans appeared pit the
Coinsloek again, apparently well sup
piled with money, and Hoy both ob?
tained Jobs as watchmen at the Jus?
tice mine, and wer.? still there when
the writer left CSnld Hill in 18715; I Ii IVO
since beard that they are both th id".
My actions in th? es inpc of Ibo mur?
derers were nil tinder duress.
After Prentice and Evans returned I
was for it I inns) two years necessarily
often in their company, but I had a
feeling that they desired me out of t'ne
way. and i avoided being with them,
ei-peolally with Prentice, in remote ni
dark places: I fell much easier when,
In 1S7C. I l"ft the locality. Hut it seems
I whs not to escape their presence for?
ever, fine day while visit in? the Cen?
tennial grounds in Philadelphia, I ran
against Prent lee and Evans, They pre?
tended t,, i,,. sind to r o nv. Tie y h id
a large supply of, money, ind spehl it
liberally. They; were dressed richly,
and their minds did not seem to b .1 s
turbed with reflections of their pas!
lives, but they were drinking much 11
? iuor. They said they would return to
California. Ind.I. I went with them
to New York, where we remained f iur
days at the Astor House, and I nc
companled them to tin- steamship
wharf, where liny took passage for
Panama. Tliiil was the InSl time I
ever ea\v them.
