Futrelle Furnit ure Company, ALBUQUERQUE HAS OLD EST STAGE DRIVER IN THECOUNTY Began Career at Age of 10- Vlctlm of Seventeen Hold-ups. All other stage drivers might as well go way back and sit down. The oldest stage driver m tne whole country lives In Albuquerque and his name is John Henry, an em ploye of W. D. Trimble & Co., of this city. Mr. Henry is 75 years of age and began driving a stage at the age of ten. During the late teamsters' strike Mr. Henry was the only man on the Job who could drive four In hand. His experience as a stage driver in the pioneer days of the west are exciting and interest ing to say the least. John Henry was born in lasi at Asbury. N. J., and at the age of ten years he began driving a stage for his father on the route between Morrison, N. J., and Kaston. Pa. Iiater he drove a stage between Klizabcthtown. N. J., and Kaston. Pa. Since that time up to within the last nve years Henry has been in active service as a stage driver. There is perhaps not another living man In the whole country who has driven a stage continuously for sixty years. Henry has driven every sort of stage conveyance on wheels In his time. He was not content with driving a slow stage team of two horses In New Jersey all his life; he got the western fever early and came to California in 1858 by the way of Isthmus of Panama. Thus he was present In that romantic region In the days of its wildest gold excite ment. Got $200 a Month In California. In California he at once took up the calling of stage driver and work ed a number of years for the Wells Fargo Express company and also for the California Stage company. In those strenuous times a stage driver had to be peculiarly qualified for the position as the country was in tested with outlaws and stage hold ups were daily occurrences. As a rule six horse teams overe used on the stage coaches and the time made averaged as high as fourteen miles an -hour. Stage stations w ere seldom more than twenty miles apart and horses were changed at every sta tion. Five or six hours as consid ered a day's work for the driver and In that time he would bring his stage sixty miles or more after hav Ing changed horses three or four times. In those days drivers had to know how to drive, for the roads were steep and rough In places and the dangers to be encountered plen tiful. Two hundred dollars a month, besides board and lodging, was the pay of the pioneer stage drivers and the men earned the money. $60 Was Too Ixnv fop Henry. "Gradually the pay of stage driv ers got down to $60 a month and then I quit, said .Mr. Henry. The most remarkable facts in Henry's career are that in all the time he drove a stage In the wild western regions, he never once lost a horse and never once turned over a stage. He was held up eight times by desperate outlaws; shot twice and robbed of as high as $40,000 at one time. In those days there were no telegraph lines or railroads in Cali fornia and desperadoes had excellent chances to escape with their booty, yet of those who held up Henry all but one were captured and punish ed. Held lp By Bandits. In 18 1 6 Henry was driving a stage from Aurora to Columbus in Nevada And was 'held up and had eight bars of silver bullion taken by bandits. The robbers surprised him from above on a steep bank and at ter taking the treasure allowed him to proceed. "We always went well armed, but seldom got a chance to use our guns," said Henry. "The robbers had us at a disadvantage; they kept us covered with their guns while one of their party attended to the rob bing. The robbers seldom meant to shoot the driver, but once in a while a stray bullet would find him." Henry was held up twice in Ne vada, twice in California and at oth er times In Oregon, Idaho and Ari zona. While driving a stage near Fort Bowie In Arizona thirty years ago he was shot twice in the leg by outlaws who surprised him. Three men Jumped up from the sage brush and called: "Stop, you !" but that time Henry thought he had a good chance to get away and he urg ed the horses at full speed. Two bullets from the rifles of the outlaws followed him and lodged In his leg. He made his escape, however, driv ing at break-neck speed to the next stage station though all the time suf fering intensely with the wounds in his leg. "On that trip I did not carry any express, and my only passengei-s were a woman and a big Swede. We did not have much money with us and there wasn't much sense in try ing to run away." remarked Henry. At another time while driving be tween Date Creek and Prescott. Arl zn a, he was held up and an army ofti er who was the only passenger was robbed of some valuables and important papers. Two bars of sil ver were In the express box and these also were taken. Uoldx-rUn Alua.VM Ocvurrcd Ijirly. Most of the stage robberies were pulled off early in the night so that the robbers could get away to a saf distance before daylight, though rob beries in the day time were common enough. The most sensational hold-up in Heniy's career occurred . when he was driving from Tehajnas to lied Cliff in California. He was going down a grade In the road in a lone ly place at about 8 o'clock at night; the Wells-Fargo express messenger was sitting beside him on the seat when suddenly the leaders stumbled and fell in the road. The express messenger leaped from the coach, leaving his gun on the seat, to as sust the horses to their feet. At that moment three men appeared from their hiding place by the roadside and covered the messenger and driv er with their guns. Henry was or dered to throw down the express b.ix, which ho did with alacrity, and while two of the men kept the driv er and messenger covered, the third bandit smashed open the express box which contained $40,000 in new twenty dollar gold pieces. Then with their handsome booty, the rob bers make off on horseback. These robbers had stretched a rone across the road which caused the leader horses to fall and thus the rest was easily accomplished before the driv er or messenger were aware what was up. The money stolen was bound for the mining camps to be exchang ed for gold dust. The robbers In this Instance were captured about a year after 4he deed was committed, but none of the money was regained. Jienry was able to identify one or these desperadoes by means of a ring on his little linger. Though the men were neavlly masked at the time of the hold-up. Henry noted a peculiar ring on the little finger of the rob ber who grabbed the express bo and so was able to identify the out law. StHiro HoMhts Were Merciful. Henry said the bandits usually Rent In pairs or three together and that they committed murder only when there seemed to be no other way to accomplish their purpose. itienry had manv thril ing exper iences with storms, floods and In dians, but survived them all without a scratch. Many a time he has ford ed streams when the horses had to swim for It and the coach was half covered with water. He said the In dians were fond of giviug him a scare occasionally. but that they never held him up. He was never troubled much with Indians though he encountered them on many dif ferent occasions. In the early days the fare on the stage coaches was 25 cents a mile, but gradually this was reduced to to cents a mile as travel increased and the dangers were lessened. In 1882 Henry came to New Mex ico and has remained here ever since. He drove the stage from Thornton to Bland for a number of years and has worked in this city ror tne w. u. Trimble company. All of his exciting experiences, however, were Known in the states and terri tories farther west. Though seven ty-five years old John Henry is In good health, and though he does not work regularly any more he will sometimes tell of his early adven tures to his friends who, as it Is needless to state, listen to him with keen interest. The few in this part of the country who have seen Henry nanoie a six-horse team say he Is the most expert driver who ever came to Albuquerque. ALBUQUERQUE PEOPLE CASH MORE BOGUS CHECKS Artist Under Arrest at Lss Vegas-Victims Lost SI 50. Clifford Davenport Hastings, tall broad shouldered, smooth shaved. wearing a cnecKered suit and a brown derby hat, has victimized Al buquerque merchants for a sum ag gregatlng $150 by means of bogus cnecKs. it took him two weeks to execute the coup but he did it and got away as far as Las Vegas, where ne was captured this afternoon. The victims are the Alvaraao ho tel, the Alvarado Pharmacy, and sev eral individuals, doctors and nier chants. The heaviest loss is suffered by the Alvarado, where Hastings made nu headquarters while work Ing the city. Hastings came to Albuquerque Friday, the 13th. j He represented himself to be an expert advertising solicitor and writer. One of his lirst movements was to visit the State Na tional bank, and on the promise of inserting an advertisement "hints for depositors," in a booklet, which he said that 'he was going to Issue, Mr. Collier of the bank, gave him a let ter. This letter merely stated that Clifford Davenport Hastings was Is suing an advertising booklet, but Mr. Hastings made it appear that the booklet was being issued especially for the State National bank. He showed this letter wherever It would do him the most good. He paid his first week's board at the Al varado with a check, which proved to be only a bait. The Alvarado Pharmacy was caught for $17. Hastings called at the pharmacy early during his visit to the city. On his first call, he push ed a show case open and said that he would help him.-lf. The clerk told him that he need not mind; he would help him in just a moment and with that Mr. Hastings waited. He paid for the purcnase he made that morning, but a few days later he had some goods charge. He set tled this bill and the check he gave for It proved a bait al.-o. He repre sented himself to have money In the State National bank. Dr. Briggs, proprietor of the Alvarado Pharmacy, was told that Hastings was all right, he was a member of one of the most fashionable clubs In San Francisco. While talking advertising between deals, Hastings sent most of his time and a large part of the money which he secured on bogus checks playing faro bank. He even tried to work the gambling houses on bogus checks. At the St. Elmo Saturday evening he offered NelU Wells, one of the foremen of the place, a check for $5. The check was made by A. Borders on the First National bank In favor of the State National bank.' Mr. Wells said today that he told Hast ings that the check was not his t Hastings) and that he could not cash it. At this Hasting offered his own personal check for $5. Wells cashed this check and Hastings won $35 with the money. Surprised at Hastings not taking the check up, Wells took the check to the bank. It was ascertained that Hastings had given checks on the bank before and had taken them up. He had a small amount of money in the bank at that time. But feeling uneasy about the check and knowing that Hast ings had money in his pocket. Wells looked him up and Insisted that he take the check up, which 'he did. On Monday morning J. B. Hern don, of the State National bank, call ed Hastings in and told him that he must stop issuing checks against the State National bank oi else he would get in trouble. Probably realizing that his race was about run, Hastings took a pack age to the express otllce this morn ing after breakfast and slipped around and boarded train No. 10 Just as It was leaving for the north. When Manager Smlther of the Alva rado learned that Hastings had boarded train No. 10. he notified Chief of Police McMiliin. The lat ter advised Mr. Smithers to wire the Harvey house manager at Iais Vegas to have Hastings taken from the train there. At S o'clock this after noon the local authorities received a telephone message telling of Hast ings' arrest. An officer will be sent to Las Vegas tonight to bring Hast ings back to this city.
