Htsco tho death of Colonel J.
Wilson In Proscott oa Friday many
tacts concerning his romantic ane
liTeaturous life which have hitherto
been unknown to any excepting the
colonel's most Intimate friends e
coming to UghL There are probably
aot mors than a dotea persons In
Arizona today who know that Colonel
Wilson was once sentenced to be

tence was lmposod by a military
eourt martial shortly after the closo
or the Civil war.
ftor tho war. Colonel Wilson, who
bad been a lieutenant colonel on tho
staff of Confederate General Hood,
wandered Into Texas seeking employ

plantation because of his ability to
Ono day Wilson gavo a big black

thereupon ordered him to glvo up his
team and leave tho place. This
tho negro refused to do, and when
Wilson started for him, he seized
a pitchfork. Wilson would have
been prodded to death had he not
drawn a rovolver and shot tho mu
tinous laborer dead.
An Investigation was begun by the
United States military authorities.
There had been no eye-witnesses to
the shooting except several negroes,
but they told tho truth la all par
ticulars. At ono time tho officer con
ducting the Investigation was read)
to drop the case, but his superiors
insisted that an oxamplo be made of
Wilson. A court-martial was empan
eled, the overseer was convicted and
fccntenccd to be shot.
' Wilson's employer hired a lawyer,
who discovered that the day before
the shooting of tho negro, martial
law ended In Texas, tborstate being
turned over to. tho civil authorities.
The district attorney of the county
began habeas corpus, proceedings,
with the result that the military was
forced to give up tho prisoner. Wlson
was then tried under civil law
and was acquitted.
Probably no one knows more about
Colonel Wilson's Civil war record
than Thomas F Farlsh, who was a
close frlned of tho deceased for more
than a quarter of a century, and
managed his campaign In 1898, when
tho colonel was for the first time
elected delegato to congress from
Born In Tennessee. Colonel Wilson
moved to Alabama when a small
oy. When ho was 16 tho Civil war
broke out and he enlisted as a pri
vate In an Alabama regiment. Dur
ing the war ho was wounded six
times, three bullets passing entirety
through his body. Ho received his
first wound ac Shlloh. In after years
he delighted to tell of an experience
be had during that battle, always
maintaining that It was there he re
ceived the disappointment of bis Ufa.
In the course of the first day's
lighting, young Wilson captured a
union soldier who "had such a blanket
as could not be had for love or
money In the Confederate armv.
Wilson Intended to keep that blanket
for himself, but could not turn over
his prisoner that day. When night
came on he decided to sleep with the
Union soldier, not caring much if
the prisoner did get away, Just so ho
saved tho blanket. But the youth
slept more soundly than he Intended.
In tho early morning he awoke,
nearly frozen. Both prisoner and
blanket were gone.
The rise of Wilson from the ranks
was rapid. Before the end of the
war ho was mado a lieutenant col
onel. His last battle was at Atlanta,
where his valiant services won the
commendations of General Hood.
' Giving up his position on the Texas
plantation, Colonel Wilson went o
Arkansas and studied law. Before
coming to Arizona he served three
terms as district attorney of ono of
Arkansas' largest counties. He ar
rived In Arizona In 1SS7, and one of
the first frlsnds ho made was Thorn
as E. Farlsh.
In tho fall of 1S9S Colonel Wilson
was nominated by the democratic
party of Arizona for delegate to con
gress. His republican opponent wan
Alexander O. Brodle, who, when nom
inated, was in New York recovering
from a wound received in Cuba.
Brodle was expected to win on his
war record, but with the help of his
old friend, Thomas E. Farlsh, whom
ha chose to bo his campaign man -
