FDr Tlifle Years Gang of Des
peradoes Has Gone
The man who seenrts the body, dead
or allvo, of a munlirlng bandit known
as "lllaok Jako" along tho fronllor of
tho Southwest will got 18.000 eaih and
oarn tho tlmuks of many pcoplo nnd
corporations In the Territories of New
Mexico and Artzonn.
For two years and n half a band of
outlaws known as the "Illaek Jake"
Hang has robbed, marauded and mur
dered nt Intervals of n few months In
widely separated nnd different parts of
those Southwestern territories. Tho
ftnuthern Pacific Railroad Company has
brought Its most expert bandit catch
ers to this roilnn from Texas, Califor
nia nnd the Territories, and has spent
u Rood-slscd fortune In trying to lay
hold of the outlaws.
The Santa Fe Ilnllroad Convjany has
had four different sets of cowboys and
plains detectives oach employed for n
month at n tlmo In pursuing "Hlaek
Julie" and his nnng on a dozen differ
ent clews. Marshals p Artzonn and
Now Mexico have bean , lly vlgllnnt,
nnd have been active li mdlng satin
clous peseo ouleera of ho plains to
cftteh the bandits, nnd the Unltod
States troops hnvo gallopeu hero and
there along the frontier In vain uests
of "lllaek Jake" anil his followers. A
reward of $8,000 la offered Jointly by
less gang of bandits who wore after
gold coin nt tho sacrifice of any life
that baffled txclr efforts.
On or about Aug. 8, 1866, seroral men
omployod In the general merchandise
store of the Huallpl Mining Company,
two miles norM' of Kingman, Ariz.,
woro roused from tuelr noonday siestas
behind the counters one hot, blistering
day, by four cowboys who walked In
and asked to see some saddles. Ono ot
tho store men started to go upstairs to
show the strnngors his stock of sad
dles. The others were too warm and
sleepy to move, but the moment they
snw oach of tho supposed purchnsora
whip out two long, murderous re
volvers nt full cock they wore Instantly
very much nwnko.
When each of tho store men looked
Into tho nluzxlo of n pistol nj If Into
the mouth ot a railroad tunnel, no
know that ho and his store companions
wcro In tho hands of bandl'j. Whllo
ono bandit, a tall, dark camplexloncd
man, with doep set eyes and mammoth
tattooed stars on his hands, wsnt nbout
tho store seeking money nnd transport
nblo valuables, the store men wero kept
looking nt very close range Into tho
muzzles of cocked revolvers. In ten
minutes, perhaps, some $1,400 In coin
was taken, for there Is not tho con
venience of bank deposits In frontier
Then " storekeepers woro bound
and gngHd. Ono of thow, John A.
Illshnp, resisted, and In tbn scrimmage
was stabbed to doath. TSc bandits
bound tho other men tight" nnd, host
toning out, woro soon on tfnlr broncos
Haiti man was thus busy holding some
person with his stx-shontor, and thoro
was no ono left to shovel tho money
Into tho bag.
Itoallzlng that something must bo
dnno to change the combination, tho
man who had the Irrigation convention
nt bay promptly shut tho door on It.
Tho slamming of the door attracted tho
attention of the gentleman nt tho tell
er's window, nnd ho turned to sec whnt
the trouble was. The Instant the rob
ber turned, tho toller made a Jump for
his window, underneath which, on n
shelf, reposed the bank six-shooter,
which he grabbed and began shooting.
Over one hundred shots wero fired
Inside of three minutes. Hvery man
who could get a gun and n horse took
the trail. A skirmish ensued among
the rocks In the l.os Animas canon,
"lllnck Jake" lost his horse, but got the
ono ridden by the sheriff of l'lnia
county, and escaped Into Soiiorn, Mex
ico. Three months passed and tho Arizona
people began to hop and then to think
that the Mark Jake baud had decided
to remain permanently In tho republic
of Mexico. I.ate one night. In January,
1887, when the air was n little chilly In
tho semi-tropic regions, live men in
mnsks walked In upon n faro game nt
Defining. N. M. While four ot the
masked men covered the cloven gam
blers nnd kept their hands nway above
their heads, the tallest ot the masked
men gave his whole attention to tho
cashier of the layout. That ulllclal
reached for his pistol, but he waH too
slow. He was shot In the face and he
dropped forward on the green table.
The robbera wore gone In a twinkling.
Three murders were added In 1S08 to
tho catalogue of crimes attributed to
the notorious band. One was the
shooting ot n imsssnger on the stage
from Tombstone to Clrnnt Springs, In
Arizona, when that vehicle was held
up, and tho passengers idled their
watehos, purses and other valuables In
n heap for tho uso of the bandits. An
other murdor was that of a switchman
for the Atlantic nnd l'ncltlc Italtroad
Company nt Navajo, bocause, proba
bly, he was euspoctcd of having recog
nized the gang nnd of having plans for
telling his suspicions to tho sheriff.

"lllaek Jake" Is the frontier name for
a former United Statea scout named
Jacob Ummnns. He unlisted In the
military service at Fort Whipple, near
Preseatt, Ariz., after he had been a
cowboy In the Territories for eleven
years. He came originally from the
vicinity ot Vlneland, N. J., and the
cowboys and kls comrades at tae gar
rison say he had an unusual education.
Hut he was born tough. He shot and
killed a barkeeper at Williams, Ariz.,
when he was but twenty, and narrowly
escaped hanging. As a scout he wns a
failure, because no one had eounuence
In him. He wns left I1.&00 by a New
Jersey relative In 1893, and when he

money In a month In Phoenix nnd Yu

bound and gaggod by tho same gang
on tho day previous to the robbery and
murder at Kingman. Some thirty
niinees of gold and coin to the amount
of $100 had been stolen from the safe.
In the latter part of the following
month "lllaek Jake" and his gang
robbed the bank at the rich eattle and
mining town ot Noeales, Ariz. It was
a very bald deed. Three entered the
bank. One covered the president, who
was outside the railing; another
stepped to the window nnd called the
teller, who was sitting at some dis
tance, and ordered him to hold up his
hands. The teller promptly obeyed,
and started to walk to the window, but
waa stopped befo ho could get there.
The third man went down to the end
of the railing to get behind It and at
the cash. At the end he saw an open
door leading Into a room whero sev
eral men were planning an Irrigation
scheme. He promptly held them up.

lup last June. Tho express messenger
waa shot, tho safo was dynamited, and
a saok ot gold and currency was a

carefully plekod mon chased the gang
for two weoks. Heavy rains fell, and
not tho faintest clow remained for
trailing the outlaw across hundreds of
miles of sunbaked soli In nn unlnhnb

store of the Phelps Mining Company
at Huenemo, In uvapnl county, A. T.,
waa robbod one day last November,
while two employe there wore at din
tier, and the two other men In the
store were bound nnd gagged, but only
a few dollars were had.
This gang !a well acquainted with a
large section of country to the south

that seetlon that will openly and ln
glehanded do anything against them
In a posse It Is different. A number of
the men are their friends and help
them with food, horses and Informa

ranches, whero the robbers can eome

man who has helped an officer, or they
can kill stock and run off horses. Tho
