only they had no money or clothes.
He added :
"When 1 was shot last niht I jsked
Chris to shoot me, but he would not.
We had two Winchesters, two shot
guns and two six-shooter's. Chris
carried away his Winchester and had
plenty of ammunition. Evans has
often said he was sorry lie shot Whitty,
but he thought it was Will Smith. We
would have shot Detectives Hume,
Smith or Thacker, though; but besides
these, we were only after blood-money
men and we did not always stay to
gether, but never separated longer than
four hours. We could not have been
convicted of train robbery, as we had
no hand in it. 1 he Southern I'acinc
did me a hard turn when I was hurt in
its employ. It would not give me an
easy job, so when Smith tried to arrest
me last summer I was determined that
I would not be tiken by Southern
Pacific officers, and that is why I re
sisted. 1 have no kick coming, only in
that I did not succeed belter in at
tempting to kill myself.
Sontag talked calmly and coolly. He
refused to state what he and Evans had
in contemplation. He seemed confident
that Evans would never be captured
alive. His show of nerve during the
conversation was remarked by all pres
.Marshal Gard, in an interview, says
he has warrants for the arrest of Evans
and Sontag for destroying a mail car.
He states that at least 130 shots were
fired and the fight lasted one hour.
His posse lived all the time in the
mountains on crackers, sardines and
water. When the fight commenced the
posse fought like demons. He gives
great praise to his men. Jackson's leg
was amputated this afternoon. Evans'
house is guarded to night. Sontag says
that in the fight at Young's cabin he
and Evans both were wounded. The
latter was grazed on the temple by
ball and Sontag was shot in the arm.
Sontac's condition is much worse to
night. His lungs are filling rapidly and
the bandit is in great pain, necessitat
inc occasional doses of morphine. His
physician at 1 1 o'clock says it is pos
sible that he may live a day or two and
may die to-night or to morrow. Sontag
wants to die. The worry and excite
rnent has made Mrs. Evans quite ill,
necessitating a physician to-night.
At 10 o'clock to-night a thurough
search of the Evans place was made,
but the bandit was not there. Half an
hour later news was received by courier
that I1. vans was located in Wilcox can
yon. Two posses left for there, one at
1 1, and another is just going.
A BONA TIDE SEA SERPENT
The Pilot of Steamer Edith Sights It
Off Marrowstone Point.
Seattle, June 11. The sea serpent
that has been uccasionally appearing
to certain individuals around the
Sound has at last made its existence
certain. No longer can it be doubted
that it is a thing of reality and not the
imagination of a whiskey-soaked brain,
The crew and passengers on board the
steamer Edith saw it this morning, and
watched its gambols in the water for
nearly half an hour.
As the boat was rounding Marrow-
stone point the man at the wheel
noticed the head of a queer-looking
monster raised above the water off the
port bow. He called the attention of
the others on board to it, and with
wonder and fear they watched the
dreadful sea monster. Only its head
and neck were in sight, so that its
length could not be estimated. Its head
was like that of an immense snake, and
was about the size of a man's body
the neck was of equal size.
When first seen it had about five
feet of its anatomy in sight. It was
motionless except that it was turning
its head from side to side and opening
and closing its immense mouth. As
the steamer drew quite close to it it
sank out of sight for a moment and
cam up on the other side of the boat
It appeared to be gazing with amaze
ment upon the Edith and her passen
gers. It swam along with the boat for
several minutes and then turning sud
denly started in the opposite direction
at a great rate of speed. It churned
the water into a foam with its tail and
continued to do so until it passed out
of sight in the direction of Whidby
island. There were about twenty peo
ple on board the Edith at the time and
they all tell the same story, so it must
be a fact.
