catu. IT Is with deepest sorrow thnt we
chroulcle u tragedy Unit occurred
lu tlds town of CSlveadam (Juleh
on Wednesday last.
At that date we had planted In our
jrlvnte editorial graveyand eighteen
victims, and e wore hugging the hope
thnt we had reached the end.
In each and every one of the eighteen
canes we had been obliged to shoot
first to save our owu life and had been
honorably acquitted by a coroner's
In each nnd every case also we paid
all funeral espouses and rode at the
head of the funeral procession In the
carriage with the minister.
Each of the eighteen mounds has Its
own marble headstone. We could have

considerable sum of money, but we did
not stop nt expense to procure the hi

as n matter of. fact. It Is so used by
our citizens. We have often sat there
as the summer sun went to rest nnd
reflected on the unstablllty of life, and
as our eyes dwelt on mound after

with the,8leepers,ln the great boyond.

nothing so much as to be let alone to

y We must ho crowded to the wall he
fore we shoot, and then we shoot as
gently as we can. After being acquit
ted by the coroner we sit down and
feel real bad for several hours.
Two weeks ago we received n postal
card from some one nt Wolf Creek who
signed himself "Deliverer" to the effect
that he was comlug on here to remove
us from this world of turmoil and trou
ble. We threw the card Intp the basket
with n dozen others nud gave It no fur
ther thought, but on Wednesday, as wo
sat In our sanctum writing nn editorial
on the political situatlou lu the far
west, an Individual whose name has
been ascertained to be Henry White
entered the room, drew two guns nud,
seating himself opposite us. announced:

look Into his eyes proved that ho was
not only In his right mind, but very
earnest In wnntlug to carry out his
little plan. Our guns were lying near
us, but if we had put out a hand ho
would have tired For a jloug three
minutes we thought of home nnd moth

We thought of heaven and wondered
If we would be let In. We wondered,
supposing we did get in, If we should
be welcomed by a band or nugeU and
how long berore we Bhould grow wings
and be able to lly around. We were
getting quite sentimental over the situ
ation when the foreman of the compos
ing room came bursting In for more
copy, and this innde n diversion. Mr.
White turned his gaze from ns ,for
three seconds only, but It was enough.
We reached for u gun. nnd us be drew

It consoles us somewhat to remember
thnt Mr. White did uot suffer any.
Some men might have shot him so that
he would have been on the suffering
nud dying list for several days, but we
nre quite certain that he felt no pain
after the tlrst second. When ho was
lifted up the smile he had worn lu life
was still ou his fnce, nud his parted
lips seemed about to tell us thnt time
The coroner was nt once sent for nnd
proceeded to Impanel a Jury. All the
facts were at hand. Mr. White had
told several people ou the street of his
philanthropic Intentions, nnd our fore
man was 11 witness of his efforts. The
verdict of Justifiable homicide was
reached in ten minutes. Then we Bent
for tho undertaker and ordered him to
spare no expense, nnd tho gravedlggcr
wns told not to do nny skimping,
As near as we have been nhle to as
certain, Mr. White has no relatives In
the west, nnd there will be no one to
claim his effects, consisting of T0 cents
In cash and two guns. Ho had been
hanging around Wolf creek for a
month or so, seeming to have some
thing on his mind, hut nobody can tell
where lie came from beyond there. He
was n man of middle age, with an In
telligent face nnd likely fairly educat
ed, nnd had he turned his attention to
killing off tho heads of trusts he would
undoubtedly have been n sucqess. Wc
cannot say whether his Idea of remov
ing us was original with him or not.

the editor of tho Kicker, mayor of
Giveadam Gulch, deputy United States
marshal, state fish commissioner, state
forester, colonel of mill tin. foreman of
the fire department, postmaster and a
candidate for the next presidency, and
perhaps he thought we were playing
the hog nnd there would be nothing
left for htm.
Be that as it may, Mr. White has
been gathered to his fathers In first
class shape. He was burled on' Friday
in a casket that cost $75. and we paid
ns much more for the carriages In the
funeral procession. Ills grave Is In one
