OURAY'S BMY SHERIFF
Jesse Benton's Encounters With
Desperadoes in the West
Twenty-one Bullets i'Jred at Ulin nt
Short KanKe His Experience in
Quieting Towns.
(From the New York Sun.)
Sheriff Jesse Benton, of Ouray, Col., was
in Denver a few days ago. and it was
thought that lie had come to secure assist
anceln case the striking miners attempted
to make trouble for the Missourians Ini
jwrted by the managers of the Yirginlus
mine, to take the places of the men who had
quit work. But Sheriff Bentou soon set
that matter straight.
"There will be no trouble in our county,"
said he in his quiet, easy way, "for I told
the lioysl didn't want nof uss, and theyknow
I mean what I say. One day 1 got a tele
phone ruessng-! from the foreman up at the
mine tiiat the men had gone out, and he
wanted me to bring up all the deputies I
could gather to prevent trouble. I saddled
up my horse, took a couple of deputies
along for company, and went up to the
mining camp away up on the side or Mount
Bncffivs. The miners had gone to their
lodging houses, and were quiet enough when
I arrived. Next morning the foreman sent
word to the lodging houses for the miners
toline-upinfrontof theoffico.as he wanted
to make them a speech. The men came
down, and I stood alonsidc while the talk
was going on. The foreman told the men
that lie had received word from the owners
of the property in Denver to tell the men to
go back to work again, and that all would
be lovely, or as many as wanted to quit
might call for their time.
"Their grievance was that the two shift
bosses had cussed them too much and they
liad struck to obtain the discharge of those
two men. After the speech they asked for
fifteen minutes to discuss the matter, which
was granted. Then they sent up from ttie
lodging houses a committee of three, who
reported that everybody would go out on
strike, and that they would hit the trail
for Ouray shortly; but they wanted to take
the two sliif t bosses along with them. Then
I spoke up. I told the committee to tell the
ininersth-itthetwoshiftbosseswerewithine
nt the office and for them to come and get
the nun. But I suggested that all who came
would not get away again; and so they
t dropped the idea of taking the shift bosses
along. They went down to Ouray and or
ganized a union, and then mostof them got
out of the camp. They had lived too long
in Ouray, anyway, and had enjoj-ed regu
lar pay days for too many years. 1 think
a change will do them good."
No one, to look at Sheriff Benton and hear
him talk -with a slight drawlt would im
agine liim to be a man of extraordinary
couragei but lie has a reputation for nerve
md accuracy in the use of firearms and
tooljudgm-mtintimcsofexcitementequaled
iy few men in the West.
""I don't find any difference in my shoot
ing," said he, in response to a question. "I
SH-SUcurnitt5' sf raight yet. though there
ire not so many occasions now to exercise
my skill as when I first came "West. Game
Is not so plentiful, and there are not so
many bad men ready to display their nerve.
In the early days, before a man could be
recognized as a desperado, he had to be
retty quick with his gun and almost a
lead shot. I Lave had twenty-one bullets
tired at me at very close range by bad men
In my time, but I don't carry a single lead
nark to show. Or course, that is not all
ilie bullets that have been fired at me, but
Ul the rest came at long range and don't
Kunt. Many a bad man wanted to pick me
)ff, but I never gave them more show than
iras absolutely necessary. Singulurly
"jnough. too. I have always had plenty of
witnesses to my shooting scrapes eome
Jimes as many as several hundred at a
time and I never shot a man except I was
Justified in killing him.
"My father trained all his Loi-s to handle
guns In our home in Chenango county, N. Y.
Wewerotaughthow toloadandhow to fire,

ve knew how to do it. .After one of us
boys could bring down a squirrel every
Jime we aimed at one, then -vve were per
mitted to shoot ata mark and go italone.
I came to Colorado in l60 and was in the
mines until the war bi oke out, when I came
to Denver and enlistsl with the Colorado
volunteers. I didn't go to the front, but
was put to work to recruit men to fill up
Ihc regiment that was forming to march
ngainstthe Indians out on the plains. Re
cruitscamc in too slowly to suit the colonel,
and martial law was declared f o as to get
more soldiers. I went out on the street
with six deputies, armed witli twelve
runs, and whenever we met a man walking

Jail into line. As soon as the six guns
liad been distributed to the new recruits
we marched them to headquarters, got
ilx more guns, and went out again. In a
short time we had enough men to fill the
jegimint, and there was ro more difficulty
In keeping the ranks filled after that.
"After the war I held a post on the Dcn
rer police force, and had plenty of fighting
lcrnpes with though citizens. "When the
JCansas Pacific Railroad was building "West
It was pretty difficult to find a quiet town
Blong t he road. So many men had a preju
dice against dying in bed that it kept the
peace officers busy trying to please them.
One day a message came from the town of
Kit Carson asking for a man to take the
place or town marshal, which had been sud
denly made vacant, and I took the job.
After I had been there but a short time I
discovered that the leader of the trouble
was the county judge, and very soon I had
liim quiet in jail. Then I found that the
justice of the peace was the next man I
needed. Heliveda short way out of town,
nnd, armed with a warrant, I "Went there
alone to arrest him. He was eating break
fast when I called, but I told him not to
)iurry,as I could wait, and I sat down.
"When he had finished his meal he got up
and went to a small stand, but before he
could get out his gun, I had the drop on
him, and suggested that if he wanted his
gun, to go along and I would carry it for
liim. lie consented to that arrangement
and went to jail without any fuss. Of
course, I had to do some shooting, just to
prove that I meant business; but quiet was
toon restored.
"I followed along the Union racifictoall
the tough towns and kept things quiet for
the people who wanted to sleep nights. I
had a mob to handle one day at Piedmont
who wanted to lyncha man,but when they
aw that I was not in the game they took
me at my word and did not try to argue
the matter long. It seems that a wagon
toaster or a freightingtrain gotintoa quar
rel with a tlc-ehopper over a game of cards,
and the wagonmasterstruck hlscompanion
in the game across the side of the head
with a six-shootcrr cutting a small vein,
-which bled so profusely that a rumor
spread abroad that the tie-chopper was
dead. There were about 200 men from
the tie camp in town that day, and they
started out to lynch the wagon master.
'Conic on, Benton,' they called to me, nob
mowing tli a I was a deputy United
States marshal. 1 iiunted about in the
crowd until I found a man wiio knew the
wagon master by sight, and we set out
to find the man first. Pretty .soon wc had
liim with his two six-shooters, and I sent
my companion off to notify the crowd that
I had the victim. They came on the run,
whooping and hollering and carrying a
rope to lynch him with. I had taken my
prisoner down to an open space and had
him stand alongside me. I told him to lie
quiet, but that when he heard my tix
shooter crack he was to grasp the two
guns T had stuck in my belt and begin
to shoot, too. 1 halted the crowd and
told them that I was a deputy marshal
and proposed to prevent the lynching.
The crowd howled in anger and began to
intimate that they woiild lynch me with
the wagoV master." I btepped forward
and suggested that some of the crowd
would not witness the hanging if they
undertook to defy me. "Well, they took
me at my word, and the lynching did not
.occur.
"Afterward they sent for me to take
charge of Silver Cliff when that town was
a lively mining camp. One day the miners
to the number of a hundred or more gotout
into the main street and began to shoot ut
eacii other. I walked up the center of the
street with two big six-shooters and drove
the fighters back to the sidewalks, and
told them that when I started shootingsome
of them would lose-intorest in worldly af
fairs. It seems like boasting to mention
thisincident, but I guess you can get plenty
of proof if jou want it. Among the bad men
In Silver Cliff when I came was Riley
Fisher, of Texas, and he did not like to have
me interfering with his privileges of run
ning the town whenever lie saw fit. lie
sent word that he would get me whenever
lie ran across my tracks. Wo had a discus
sion over the matter one day on the btreet
as to who should stay, and both of us
stayed, but he got out of breath firt-t and
never recovered. When it was over I found
nine bullet holes in my overcoat. He was
sociable enough, you see. My first shot
struck an inch too high .above the heart, and
that disturbed his aim, or 1 would have
died with him.
"While I was in Silver Cliff tlie railroad
war for the possession of the Royal
Gorge broke out, and a lot of deputy
sheriffs and guard8 from Dodge City
were imported to make the right for the
railroads contesting for the light or way
through the canon of the Arkansas. They
were a mighty tough crow d, and the Canon
Citv police could do nothing with them.
Barrett, who was town marshal, wrote
for me to come down and help him. My
terms were accepted by the town council,
and I set to work to clean out the towu
of about as tough a class of citizens as
I ever ran across. Things were lively Tor
a few days, but I was lucky and managed
to get the town back to its accustomed
peaceful order. Express men used to fol
low ne arouud to get a. job of hauliug
men to the hospital and morgue, but that
only lasted a "week or two.
"Just when I was ready Tor another
Job I received a telegram to come to
Las Tegas, N. M., which was the end of
the railroad then, and be marshal at that
place. After a conference "with the au
thorities I agreed to give them an op
portunity to sleep nights if they would
pay me $350 a month. My price was
readily accepted, and I began by ap
pointing one of the toughest men there as
chicr deputy. He objected strongly, but
1 convinced him that if he wanted to en
joy life he would have to wear a star, and
then he consented.
"There had been a number or stages rrotn
Santa Fe held up Just outside of town, and
I thought the gang must be living in Vegas.
When the town authorities saw what I had
done they weresickenough,forthey thought
I had sold out to the gang. In a few days
another stage washeldup.themail.sstolen,
and the passengersrobbed. I took my chief
deputyonatourout ortown.toaquletspot
tosearch Tor the robbers. Whcnnoone was
around to disturb us we had a sociable time.
Ipulledoutmy gun andaskedfor the names
of the robbers. When ray deputy saw that he
musteither give up the names or fill a lonely
grave,heconressed. We then went back to
town and arrested six or the gang and sent
them to Santa Fe Tor safe-keeping.
"I had to resign in a rew weeks, Tor the
White River Ute war broke out. and as I was
a member or the Colorado militia, I reltlt
my duty to return. The Las Vegas people
wanted to keep me, but when they saw I
would not stay, they asked me to name a
suitable successor. The man I named was
brave enough but unlucky, ror lie was shot
within a week."
Not Cold at the Pole.
A person who has never been in the polar
regions has no Idea what cold is. When it
is 10 or 15 degrees above zero wc rancy
It is pretty chilly, anil IT our houses are not
70 degrees warm wc Taney we are freezing
to death. Think, then, of living where the
temperature of the house goes down to 35
degrees below zero, even when a roaring
fire Is burning! In such a case men have to
be bundled in furs until they lose all sem
blance to human beings. Dr. Moss, who
went on a polar expedition in 1875, tells
of the curious effect, or the cold on a wax
candle. At 35 degrees below zero the name
had all it could do to keep warm. It was
so cold the flams could not melt the wax,
but had to cut itself down, leaving a sort
of skeleton of the candle standing. There
was heat enough, however, to melt odd
shaped holes in the wall of the candle,
making a beautiful lacclikc cylinder of
white, through whose chinks the yellow
light streamed out.
Frightened Twice In His Life.
"Yes," said the retired army officer, "I
can recall two occasions when I was ter
ribly frightened." "Oh," exclaimed the
romantic young lady, "do tell me about
thein. I suppose it happened -when you
were fighting the Indians?" "No," lie re
plied. "One time was when I was mar
ried, and the other time was when we had
our baby christened." Cleveland Leader.
Would Call Mamma.
"If you kiss meagainl will call mamma."
"Well, I don't mind; she is stUTa youn
looking woman." Town Topics.
Knows a Thing or Two.
"Are you acquainted with any society
people?" "Oh, yes, I know a thing or
two." Life.
