ALBUQUERQUE EVENING CITIZEN.
PAGE SIX. TIKSDAT. JCNK I.-J, 117. 7 . Grnessl luntes (lly President Tlioo. Roosevelt.) The true way to kill wolves is to , hunt them with greyhounds on the j great plains. Nothing more excit ing than this upon can possibly be Imagined. It In not always neces :iry that the greyhounds should be j of absolutely pure blood. Prize win ning dogs of high pedigree often I prove useless for the purpose. If by careful choice, however, a ranch man can get together a pack com posed both of the smooth-haired greyhound and the rough-haired Scotch deerhound, he can have ex-1 cellent sport. I Once 1 hal the good fortune to witness a very exciting hunt of this character among the foot hills of the northern Rockies. I was stay ing at the house of a friendly cow man, whm I will call Judge Yancy Stump. Judge Yancy Stump was a democrat who, as he phrased It, had fought for his democracy; that Is, he had been In the confederate army. He was at daggers drawn with his nearest neighbor, a cross-grained mountain farmer, who may be known as old man Prindle. Old man Prln dle had been in the union army, and his republicanism was of the black est and most uncompromising type. There was one point, however, on whlcU '.he two came together. They were exceedingly fond of hunting with hounds. Ihe Judge had three or four track-hounds, and . four of what he called swift-hounds, the lat ter Including one pure bred she grey hound of wonderfu! speed and tem per. Old m:in Prlndle's contribution tl th pack cons'mot: of two immense brindled mongrels of great strength and ferocious temper. As I was very anxious to see a wolf-hunt the Judge volunteered to get one up, and asked old man Prin dle to assist, for the sake of his two big fighting dogs; though the very names of the Infer, Gen. Grant and Old Abe, were gall and wormwood to the unreconstructed soul of the Judge. Luck favored us. Two wolves had killed a calf and dragged it Into a long patch of dense brush where there was a lltilr spring, the whole furnishing admirable cover for any wild beast. Early In the morning we started on horseback for this bit of cover, which was some three miles off. The party consisted of the judge, old men Prindle, a cow boy, myself and the (legs. The Judge and I earned our ritles and the cow boy his revolver, bu! old man Prin dle had nothing but a heavy whip. At last we reached a somewhat deeper valley In which the wolves were harbored. The vallty was a couple of hun dred ya.-ds broad and three or four times as lor.g, filled, with a growth of ash and dwarf elm and cedar, thorny underbrush choking the apaces .between. Posting the cow boy, to whom he gave his rifle; with two grayhounds on one side of the upper end, and old man Prindle with two others on the opposite side, while I was left at the lower end to guard against the possibility of the wolves breaking back, the judge himself rode Into the thicket near me and loosened the trackhounds to let them find the wolves' trail. The big Jo,? also wore uncoupled and allowed to go In with the hounds. Their ower of scent was very poor, but they were sure to be guided right by the baying of the hounds, nml their presence would give confidence to the latter. There was a moment's pause. Then a clamorous baying from the thicket In which both the horseman and dogs had disappeared showed that the hounds had Htruck the trail of their quarry and were running on a hot scent. The hounds ran zlgaag through the brush, as we could tell by their baying, and once some yelping and a great row showed that they had tome rather closer than they had expected upon at least one of the wolves. In another minute, however, the latter found It too hot for them and bolted from the thicket. My first notice of this was seeing the cow boy, who was standing by the side of nls horse, suddenly throw up his rifle nd fire, while the grayhounds, who had been springing high up In the air, half maddened by the clamor In the thicket below, for a moment dashed off the wrong way, confused by the report of the gun. I rode for all I was worth to where the cowboy stood, and Instantly caught a glimpse of two wolves, grizzled-gray and brown, which, having been turned by his shot, had started straight over the hill across the plain toward the mountains three miles away. As soon as I saw them I saw also that the rearmost of the couple had been hit somewhere in the body and was lagging behind, the blood running from Its flanks, while the two grayhounds were racing after It; and at the same moment the track hounds and the big dogs burst out of the thicket, yelling savagely aa they struck the bloody trail. The wolf was hard hit, and stag gered as he ran. He did not have a hundred yards start of the dogs, and in less than a minute one of the grayhounds ranged up and passed him with a savage snap that brought him to; and before he could recover, the whole pack rushed at him. Weakened as he was he could make no effective fight against so many foes, and Indeed had a chance for but one or two rapid snaps before he was thrown down and completely covered by the bodies of his enemies. Yet, with one of these snaps he did damage, as a shrill yell told, and In a second an over-rash track-hound came out of the struggle with a deep gash across his shoulder. The wor rying, growling and snarling were terrltlu, but 4n a minute the heaving mass grew motionless and the dogs drew off, save one or two that still continued to worry the dead wolf as it lay stark and stiff with glazed eyes and ruffled fur. PREFERRED DEATH TO PENITENTIARY Tlerra Amarllla, N. M., June 25. "Give me 99 feet of rope, judge. Don't sent me to the penitentiary for 99 years. I'd rather be hung than serve another term In the peni tentiary," plead Trinidad Olguln, convicted at the recent term of the Klo Arrlba county district court, when the Judge sentenced him to 91) yrnrs in the penitentiary. "I served one term In that penlten tlniy and I don't want to go there again," declared the man emphatical ly, evidently much In earnest in his request that the court sentence him to be hanged. Hecause of the finding of the Jury, the court was compelled to sentence the man to the penitentiary, and he was sent there yesterday, with six other prisoners, four of whom, beside himself, were found guilty of murder at this term. Olguln was convicted on the evi dence of his accomplice, Komero, who pleud guilty to killing a man named Archuleta, at t'hama In this county. Romero declared that he and Olguln called Archuleta out of a saloon at Chama and crushed his bend with a rock. Tonight.
