Wo found that that game wouldn't work, and so wo invited him into tho back room, where we made a bargain with him, and for the sum of $25, became the possessor ot a beautiful set of Lodgo jewels.

The Last of a Desperado. The complications surrounding tlio Pocahontas mine, situated at Ilosita, not far from Canon City, have finally resulted in a fierce and fatal COnfilP.f' liv irliiflli 1 ' ) wJ It iiivu viiu 111vj Ullb UOCll Bflciificod, if not more. The man killed was the notorious Major Graham, who was ho well known in Denver aa one of the most dangerous of dars ing desperadoes. The Major was a native of Now York, and in the early part of the war becamo a conspicu^ ous partisan commandor of tlie Union forcoain North Carolina. II? was a perfect athlete, a splendid horso tnan, an accurate shot, and as daring and unscrupulous as any man whoever drew a8ubro. For his services he waa appointed, at tlio close of the war, a lirst Lieutenant in the regu-< lar army, and assigned to duty in the west. By the scrvicca ho rendered against the Indians, aided by more or less political influonces, Lieut. Qrahatn soon became a full blown Major, and aesuch bccamo a special favorito at Fort Leavenworth and in tho city of that natnc. While at this post he paid liis addrossos to 0110 of tho most attractive ladica of Leavenworth, and it was only by an accident that tho marriage was not comsummated. I TllO nifflit nrfivinna fr? ?1<" I - - ? "II which tho coromony was to t-ike placo tlie commanding officer at Fort Lcavenwoith received direct instructions from tho War Department to place Major Graham in irons, and keep him in solitary confinement till further orders. Although the order created an immense sururiso nt tl.n fort, it was literally obeyed, and Major Graham ffiund himself in a felon's cell, instead of occupying, as' he had hoped, a bridal couch. A court martial, bowover, subsequently explained what seemed at tho time to bo inexplicable. Tho evidence beforo the conrt established the fact that Major Graham while wearing the i honorable uniform of aTJnifr.rl Sulfas oflicor, had been tho socret head of a band of horse thieves in Kansas; had also, while in Utah, been in league with tho lowest elass of gamblers and thieves; and that ho had systematically stolen and sold horses from tho stables of tho Government. The court martial sentenced thn Miiim bo dishonorably dismissed from tho servieo, to bo debarred from ever holding any oflieo of honor jr trust under the Government, and to servo a term of ten years in a military prison. Through some unknown in^ flucnce this sentence was endorsed only so far as it related to the dismissal of tho Major from tho ser* vieo. As soon ns lie was in possession of a qualified freedom, tlio Maj >v started fur Denver, and liore became, as of yoro, the associate of evil and dangerous classes. His lirst attempt at public robbery was made on payj master Brooks, at River Bond. For I this oft'once ho was tried and sons touced to two years in tho ponitentiary. 15oforo hia term expired ho organized an escapo, which proved partially successful. Wo say partial because ho and his associates made good their escapo, but they wero all subsequently capturod, ono of thorn being killoci, and tho Major himseli Bovorcly wounded. LIo served out tho rest of his term, and when released went to ltosita, probably horo that ho arranged, with others, the jumping of the Pocahontas mine.? Tho "jumpers" kept possession until 1 -/* ? - y 1 uuy oeioro ycncruay, when all tho minora in tho neighborhood rcsolvod on clcnrtng tho mi no of its fraud iK lent possessors. How this was done tho dispatches tell. Tho Major was i caught on his way to Roaita. On boing baited lio turned to run, but fell dead in his tracks, plorced by somo twenty tive balls. Graham's partner, a man named Uoyd, waaar* rested shortly afterward, and is likely hung befpre this.

The two soon divested Terry of all his money, thirty five dollars, two pairs of ppoctacles and other property. Tlioy then led him down to the rivor bank and told him if ho mado any outcry they would pitch him in. A negro from Angus in ciunu up auout tins time and recognized tlio two Hamburg darkeys.
