thirty jcars ago. The bill proposes to pay
the widow for his servlc&i and also some

KOVO the first Intelligence to the outalde
( world of the terrible massacre near the for-
jner post , and which saved the lives of the
pcoplo garrisoned there men , women and
children by starting reinforcements to
tholr relief On the 21st day of December
3860 , Fort Phil Kearney , commanded b >
Colonel Henry n Carrlngton , under th
nhadow of the Ulg Horn mountains , over 200
imllcs from the nearest telegraph line , was
thci extreme outpost In that part of the
northwest The nav-ago Sioux , under HcA
Cloud , had been hovering In the vicinity of
the post for some tlmo and had been lasl
ccon In largo nuinboro on Tongue river ,
northeast of the fort.
"On the 2Nt of December the InJIans mado'
nn attack upon the wood train a few miles
north of the fort. A detachment of trooa
tinder the command of Ilrovet Lieutenant
Colonel rcttcrman , Including two other of-
Jlccrs and sevorrt-eight men , and a number
of Uxlllana , trade a daali fiotn the fort for
the purpcso of protecting the wood train.
When Home four miles from the fort thej
\ wcro surrounded by the Indians In ovcr-
( whelming number * oml every man of the
detachment was killed. The heroism of their
struggle fcr llfo can never bo told , but the
Icrrlblo slaughter which has since been ccn-
fMsed bj the Indians of their braves and the
fact that the troops were only killed after
their ammunition wan ex hues ted , speaks elo
quently of the horrible dnd bloody nature of
the cnccinter. The triumphant end blood
thirsty Slou c , conunatided by Hod Cloud aud
outnumbering the garrison by twenty to one ,
had then surrounded and entirely invested
Iho fort. An attack was hourly expected. It
'v.js understood that If the Icidlara wcro sac-

the garrhcn and a worse fate for the vvomru
and children , who begged pltcously to bo
Iilaccd In the powder houa and blown i > i/ in
case of a successful attack by the Indians.
THD IJRAVB VOLUNTDEUS.
"At this juncture , v\hcn bravo men felt
that the only hope for tbo garrhnn was In
taking nowa of tholr boleaguermcnt to the
.nearest outsldo pest , and not a soldier could
lie found who vvoull brave the attempt to
"breik " through the eivagea and rldo to the
nearest outpost , a distance of 225 miles , John
Phillip : ? , a scout nd hunter , volunteered to
lake dispatches to Fort Liramlc. Placing a

country acrcfis which Cio rode was absolutely
uninhabited by white men , and the ground
iwas covered with BIICW from three to flvo
foot la depth ; he had no food for himself or
his horse other thati the meager amount ho
took with him , and It was necessary for him
to travel entirely by night for fear of hostllo
Indians. Tao vvoithcr was exceedingly cold ,
the thermometer roichlcig twenty degrees

lutehes at Fort Laramle , hardy frontiersman

ately cm receipt of the dispatches troops
were forwarded from Fcrt Laramie and the
Karrlsoa at Fort Phil Kearney was relieved.
1'or this moat remarkable act of heroism
John Phillips has never In any way been paid
by tlio general government , the only payment
made him being the sum cf $300 which was
ixild him for varlcuu scouting services.
HUNTED nr Tim sioux.
"In the jcars Immediately following hU
heroic ride John Phillips was employed in
_ . various capacities and engaged lu business
la connection with government posts and he
was continually hunted and harassed by the
Slouv , who ahvajs looked upon him as the
Juan who had wrested from their grasp the
K.trrldou at Fort Phil Kearney. At ono
tlmo ho was lassoed by the Indians , In an
uttompt to capture him for t'lo purpose of
toituic. At other tlniQi his cattle vverb

rcttctman , when a baud of Indians , sup
iiosi'd to bo Oifallala Sioux and Gho > cnncii ,
< lio\o off and killed a. considerable amount
of stock belonging to him , The Slau chief ,
Ilcd Cloud , acknowledged thlH depredation ,
but Insisted that the Indians belonged to
nnother band than his. This claim was
jiassod upon by tlio court of claims and thb
ovldenco was overwhelming , including thu
'vldvnco of army otllccrn , Indian agents ,
npeclal examiners and others , and the court
of claims allowed and entered judgment for
tbo sum of J2.210.
"U subsequently transpired that at the
tlmo t\o ] depredation occuried John Phillip *
rvvas not a fully natuialUed citizen of the
United , States and therefore the claim was
not paid , llrcken In health by the expoauro

TACOMA. Wash. , Jan. II. ( Special. ) A
glance at the ptissrngcrs 'Wlio boarded the
Corona hero last week showed no Its5 than
eighty men , possibly more , who are bound
for the gold fields and the towns noted as
starting points for the Interior , with the
Intention of taking "the beat of It , " to nso
tholr own expression. A well known de
tective stood on the dock as the passengers
made their way up the gangplank and
enumerated party after party , some Email
and Eomc large , which were made up of the
most noted of the western "grafters , " sure-
thing men and moro dangerous criminals.
Thcro were two parties from the Golden
Oato city , Including all told about eighteen
moil , all "smooth" workers and men with
records One largo uarty balled from Den
ver olid was noteworthy for 1(3 ( excellent
equipment. This contingent Is reported to
bo a rich one , all members being well
"heeled" with both cash and gambling
paraphernalia and backed by sporting mcii
of wealth In the Colorado metropolis Two
partlca came also from Portland and sev
eral small aggregations were made up of
IIIMI who have operated about the Sound
cDuritry for the last few months. Hesldov
thcso there were numerous individual out
fits owned by men who ate making their
way north on "their own hook" and are
traveling singly
The exodus Is looked upon by local police
authorities aa a matter for congratulation
from a selfish standpoint nnd the opinion
Is cxpicsscd that there will henceforth be
lees crlmo nnd less trouble on account ot
this tlass hero In the Sound district. Many
of the departing "grafters" had spent from
a week to a month In Tacoma Just prior to
leaving and weio under surveillance all tht ;
time On soveial occasions they attempted
to "right a joint , " In other words to open up
a sure-tiling gaino or establishment , but the
police forced them to remain Idle and so fat
as Is known none flow In the face of the
order to lay low If they hoped to remain In
the city unmolested until their boat should

unique In political hlstorj. It will comprise
all members of the boards of supervisors ot
the twelve counties of the territory , the os-
cesiors of all the counties , the territorial
Board of Equalization and the territorial of

Governor M II. McCorJ , who may himself

nefcro the convention will bo only two
questions1 The furtherance of economy in tbo
manigement of teirltorial tad county affiira
and the possibility for raising revenue frcm
tcrrltorlii Industries no\v practically exempt
from taxation. Arizona Is generally consid
ered primarily a mining region ; jet her
mines bear an almost Inconsiderable portion
cf the burdens of government. The agricul
turists. stockmen and railroads pay nearly
all. The total assessment of the tcrtltoij ' .a
.50,000,000 Yet ono mine alone within Ari
zona , the United Verde , at Jerome , Is com
mercially rated as worth ? 30,000,000. It paja

ImpiovementB end machinery. Other largo
mines , the main ones only corslderod , would
bilr , the territorial wealth up to fully $1DO-
000,000 could they bo assessed. It Is believed
the only way to secure revenue from the
mines U by a tax en the bullion output , for
the value of ore In pluco could not bo esti
mated.
To aid In the work to be done the gov
ernor has asked that meetings be called for
the same date In Paotalx of lee Arizona Live
Stock association and the Territorial Agri
cultural society. A special call has also been
Issued from the executive office , asking for
a general gathering in Phoenix January 25 of

In
PIERRE , S. D , Jan. 11. ( Special. ) The
Fort Plerro Stock Journal glvw Ihe following
flattering report ot present range conditions :
Heportfl from the ranges are most flittering.
The cattle on the range have not suffered In
the slightest from the early cold weather of
November and December. The beautiful
weather which has prevailed slaco tbo cold
snaps has allowed cattle to straighten out
and feed up to withstand storms that are to
come. Down on the Yellow cdlctno more
snow Is reported than anywhere else on the
range. In fact , the enow which fell a week
Rgo lias long slnco melted and run Into tbo
water holes. Below thcro la about snow
enough so that the stock docs not have to
travel for water.
Sheepmen from all sections of Iho range
rcipcrt that the winter so far has been must
favorable for their Hocks. The owners of
llvo stock have reason to bo thankful that
the ranges of the northwest have escaped
the storms of the corn belt states , whlc.i sec
tions consider that they are much moro fa
vored than the open range aicas. Cattle
on the northwest ranges have not > et been
called upon to face any blizzards or unusually
deep enows , as the cattle In the feed lots
have bad to staud , and as yet the range of
the northwest has a decided advantage as
far as weather aud wlater conditions aic
concerned.

cided that iidvcrtlsing rates must
bo reduced about 20 per ccat. The
firms decline to enter Into discussion of the
denuud , sljply stitlng that they Lad given
tholr ultimatum. They control about CO pet-
cent cf the regular city advertising and be
lieved Hint the papers must submit to their
dictation , notwithstanding that advertising
rates in Denver are lower than In nny other
city of the earns size In t'.io country. The
newspapers rcollcd tbat concession to the
autocratic orders was not only Impossible
for business reasons , but would destroy the
Independent of the press. If the dtpart-
ment store * could fix rates arbitrarily at
their pleasure they could likewise dictate In
all matters ot policy and the pners would
bccouio moro handbills without Influence or
self-respect.
The first result of the contest Is the pas
sage ot a resolution by the Trades assembly
calling on the city council to Impose a heavy
license on department stores , and warning
all members ot labor unions against them.
The smaller merchants nra taking advantage
of the opportunity to Increase tholr advertis
ing. In Denver , as la other cities , depart
ment stores have been crushing the smaller
stores and the latter are exceedingly glad of
the chance to cut lute the business of their
larger rivals.

la parlor P of the Murray Hill hotel , re
lates the New York Sun , a pirty of horso-
mca were waiting one dij- not long ago
for the Dotrd of Hovlow of the National
Trotting association to end Its labors la
executive se'slon when the conversation
turned to the subject of vicious horses ,
"Tho worst trotter I ever drove , or ever
saw , for that rruttcr. " s IJ Charley Thorap-
eon , "was old Dill Abbott's bay stiul horse
Wcstmont , from St. Joe , Mo. He was one
of the grandest looking stallions In the
\\orld-iblood "bay " , sixteen hinds high , looked
like a big , strong thoroughbred , and car
ried himself lllco a king. I was campaignIng -
Ing a string of trotters out In Iowa and
Missouri la the spring of 1SS3hcn Abbott
and his horse turned up nt the Council
Uluffo meeting.A \ fellow named Dunn was
doing the driving , and "Scar-raced * Char
ley took care of the horse. The outlU hap
pened to ibc stabled right ncross the row
from where I was , nnd I saw a good deal
of the men. and horse for a few dnjs No
body but Charley opened the door of Wcst-
tnont's box , and whenever ho wilked the
horse out of nn evening It was at the end
of a long polo nnd chain , .like you sometimes
see used to handle an ugly bull. The bojs
from Missouri all said the stud was crazy
and 1 guess ho was. nut Dunn started
film when his race came on , and ho won
It so cleverly without doing n wrong thing
that 1 began to think the talk nbout his
being a bad horse was all moonshine.
"All of a sudden ono morning , though ,
Just ( before wo shipped away to the next
town , there was a terrible uproar In Ab
bott's row , and I Knew In a moment that
Wcstmont had got somt'body ' at la t 1
heard a mail scream for help , nnd then
something was slammed against the side
of the stall with terrific lorpe After tint
I coultl hear the stallion snorting and tearIng -
Ing around In lib box like some wild beast ,
and I guessed tint 'Scar-Faced' Charley wcj
done for. Uy the time I could grab up n
pitchfork that v\as before the dnva of
wooden hayforks nnd get over there , the
man laj stretched out on his face near the
door of the stall with the horse down on
his knees trjlng to cat him up He bcl-
lowoj like a made bull when the door swung
open. I raised the fork like a haipoon , ami ,
taking good aim at his neck , let fly as bird
as I could , expecting to eo the long oteel
tinea go clear through him. nut they
didn't. They went In maybe an inch , but
tbat was long enough to take his attention
aWaj from the man long enough so I could
drag him out and e.hut the door. Kor the
next half hour we could hear Westmont
threshing around his stall like a caged tiger
the old fork handle knocking against the
boards every itlme ho turner ? a corner. The
man turned out to be Dunn , the driver
Charley hadn't turned up for some reason
or other , and Dunn , it seems , \\ent In to
feed the stud Ho waa terribly cut and
brulsod Eibout the back ami shoulders whore
the stalllcn got nt him with his teeth , and
ono of Ills arms was broken , 'but ' he got' I
well.
A SUDDEN1 DISMOUNT.
"Old man Ablott came to me over at Red
Oak the next week and asked ire to drive
\Vei3tmont In liU race there. Dunn , of course ,
be'og ' laid up. I had seen all I wonted 'o
see of Westmont at the other town and told
Abbott so , but he begged and begged , and
zsiuic'd mo that the atudr was TPVCT k icwn
to make trouble after being hitched. I re
membered how well ho had acted In lib race
at the Uluffa end flnaily consented to Orivo
him on the track , provided IJI1Ind his help-
eis would take charge of him between hcita
"He acted so well for a while that It kind
of threw me off my guard and I get carele a.
After the second heat I Joitgcd back to the
judges' stand and poised my hand for per-
rnlsslo.i to demount , looking up and tiKlng
mj OJES off the horse M I did 10 lint
them somebody came alongside with nnoUicr
horse stopping c oae \Veptmont QUICK
a.3 n flash l.o let a foawl cut of him > ou could
have heard a mile away , and itirtod for the
other horse- with his moi'th wide open , at
the tame time trjlng to Kick Icoss I went
up pretty near aa high as that judges' stand
at the first jolt , but as luck wou.d have it ,
! ii-dcd partly on the sulkj seat when I
oime down. Before lie could let fly again , I
raised up cad Crashed him over the licid
with the butt end of the big whip that I
was carrying , which started him off up the
stretch on a dead inn. You can bet he never
stopped wltlT me until he was run down and
tco tired to break looto again The moment
ho oime to a standstill I called to Abbott to
get his horse right wherehe stood , and I
never sat beh'nd him. again.
"Over at Oskaiocsa that fall Wcatmont
turned on 'Scar-Paced' Charlej and scared
him terribly. I happened to to with Abbott
when the rubber came In town to throw up
his Job Ho was the color of chalk.
" 'You'll have to get somebody eloa to take
care of that crrzy stud of yours Colonel
Abbott , ' said Charicy. 'I want to quit. He
coiro at me thU morning without ever liyln'
his ears back or glv'n' a sign , and I'm going
to quit. I can stand a mean horse to take
care of , but lies plum crazy. '
" 'All right. Charley , ' sajs mil , 'jou Jtnt
look after him a day or two until I can find
another boy , nnd It'll be all right. '
onivnus wnitn SHY.
' "No. I've done quit now. I got through
just as soon as I got nut at Wcstinont'8 stall
I was nil done two hours go , ' and Charley
never went Into Westmont's box again
"I guess Abbott get tired trjlng to find
driver , ! and rubbers for the stud , for he sold
' . : lm to Jim Togo not Icng after that , and
Page brought him down cast , trading him off ,
I think , to partlnt in In Vermont \\Vstniont
got n record of I' 24 at Dts Molnes In 18S1
His sire , Colonel West , was a Lad horse be
fore him I am convinced ftrom what I have
scon and heard that both of them ncro sub
ject to fits of lusHiilty I never saw another
stallion that wouldn't lay back his cars be
fore ho attacked a man "
"Wasn't Bill Abbott In Homo way related
to Jesse James ? " Inquired the young driver
from Indiana
"Ho was an uncle of Jems James , " replied
Thompson , "and it was In Bill AbbMt's
house up ilicro on t'.io side hill near the Si.
Joe track that Pord shot James In the back
for the big rowaid LIUOB up by the governor
of Mlstnirl Jnmrs lived thrro off nnd on
for several jcwrs right at the tlnio when the
detectives were looking for him.
"Ho wont by the name of Howard , and ho
used to nniM with old m\in AbtMttVi trotters
over at the track now and then when tils
repilar butlnruo was n little sMck. I suppose
there worn more thin twenty persons In St.
Joe who know pretty well tfcat Howard wes
Jcso James , but It was n good subject to
fay nothing about down there In those d ) .
Ho alwnjs were a loose fitting IVInco Albert
coat and kept It buttoned. How many gunx
and knhcs ho ctrrled on the Instdo I don't
know.
"Ono tlmo when the old mnn was slek
Howard proposed to V. ti. CMrk , whu was
then training for Abbott at the SI. Joe track ,
Hint they go down the creek nnd try to get
n. squirrel or two for t'.io old man. Clark
carried a rifle and Howard took along a re
volver , remarking that ho used to shoot
pretty well with that wecnon when o boy
They sighted game after n while la the top
of a tall shollbirk hlrkcxy- . Clark blnzcd
away with his rifle , but missed twlco In suc
cession. Howard then told CKirk to go nround
cti the other side of the tree nnd siaro the
squirrel back to whcro lie could get a shot
at him. As soon as Mr Squirrel came la
sight Howard whipped out his gun and fired
without seeming to take nlm nt nil , but the
game drorvwl just the sime Clark once told
mo that Howard picked off three squirrels In
the simo way th-U ( "ay without mMsltii ; n
shot. It wasn't until Pord shot Jnmcd Hint
Clark knew ho had been out hunting with
Jesse.
THU OLD MAN'S 11MJFF.
"Old man Abbott himself was something of
nn expert with a gun , " continue * ! Thompson.
"UvoryboJy knew It down through the Missouri
souri circuit , nnd ho had things pretty much
hla own way there , like Uob Kncehs up In
town In eirly dnjs. I remember drlxlug nn
old blind horse for him down that way a good
many jears ago. This horse was ns game
Es his owner , and would go through any open-
In f that jou steered him Into , blind as ho
was. The trouble was to keep him going
Gtralght nnd avoid running over everbody In
the race , for ho had a mouth llku n mule ,
and. of course , ho couldn't see. Well , > I
drove him the best I could , but he llnnlly
carried me Into some one , taking n spoke or
two out of the other fellow's wheel The
judges ruled mo out for foul driving , and aa
I wanted to explain to tl'eni how the colli
sion happened , I went up Into the staud after
the heat.
"I hadn't said ten words before the mnln
guy broke In 'That will do , joung man , we
have heird that storv toomanj tlnua before '
It riled mo n little bit to think thej wouldn't
listen to mj explanation , and ns I Know If the/
didn't , tint 11111 Abbott owned the hoiso and
was down at the foot of the stalls , I tiled
again In a diplomatic sort of wny tn give an
argument , nut they wouldn't have It.
"Tho man who acted ns starter said to mo
right awaj 'You get right down out of hcic ,
now Don't jou opsn your mouth to saj an
other word If jou do. I'll expel jou. ' Just
then there was a no'uc down below on the
