BONES OF THE BENDERS
Time and again the ate of the
Bender family has been a question
warmly debated in all parts of the
West Many people maintain that
the family were duly killed by the
avengers of Dr York whose death
first Drought to notice the murderous
family Notwithstanding this every
little while comes the report that the
Benders are etill living and have I
been captured There have been I
discovered no lees than a hundred
different Bander families and a col
lecliou of the newspaper BenaatisKS
relative to the discoveries of Benders
would prove a most interesting liter
ary curiosity The latest Bender sen
sation was a local one when the de
tectives ot this city clapped a guile
less citizen into a calaboose upon
ttiw statement of a man named
Green He was discharged Irons cus
tody a few days afterwards
loe Benders kept an inn on a
lonesome road near Oherryvale La
bette county Kansas The road
passed through tbe middle of a prai
rie six miles from Oherryvale and
all tbe inn travellers often stopped to
get lodgings for the night Travel
lers otopping there supposed to have
money were seated at the table and
while they were taking their meals a
curtain which was suspended behind
them showed the position of their
heads A blow with the bead of an
axe from behind the curtain would
stun or finish them The bodies were
Lowered into a cellar underneath
through a trapdoor where the pock
ets would be rifled of money anti val
uables and then the bodies were
nnn n n
BQELEp JAI A IrOLE
dug in the lot in the rear of this hos
pitable tavern The disappearance
of Dr York led to the discovery of
these terrible crimes and the euJden
departure of the Bender family
Many statements of the manner in
which the Benders met their retribu
tion have been made but the circum
stances of the affair have for a long
time been enveloped in mystery A
new version of the fate of the Ben
ders sets the matter beyond all doubt
The following statement is made
by Captain J C Reeves who was
First Lieutenant of Captain Burrows
Battery U 8 volunteers and who
was living at Independence Kansas
at the time the Bender family were
detecteda3 the murderers oi Dr York
and others was given to Colonel D
W Wear of this oity who furnished i
it t to the Republican According to
Captain Reeves statement Dr York 1
lived in Independence Kansas and
went from Independence to Fort
Scott to sell a house and lot at that
place He negotiated the sale but
the purchaser did not pay any money
down York started for bis home in
Independence and was met and recognized
gnized at Parsons Kansas where he
purchased some cigars He was next
met on the road from Parsons to
Benders and recognized by three or
four parties but he never could be
traced beyond Benders Dr Yorks
wife being indisposed her husbands
return was expected that night His
brother Colonel York aware of the
delicate condition ot his brothers
wife started out after trim and the
first trail he struck was at Parsons
which place he learned the doctor
had passed through on his way hcme
the day before From this place he
set out on the trail and heard of his
brother three or four times between
Parsons and the Bender place
Colonel York stopped at the Bender
place and made inquiries for his
brother the doctor The Benders de
nied that be had ever been there
Colonel York then went to Independ
ence Montgomery county Kansas
and got Sheriff Stone They both
Colonel York and Sheriff Stone
made a visit to the Benders On arriving
riving there the information they got
from him was unsatisfactory but
enough was obtained to
AROUSE THEIR SUSPICIONS
Colonel York and Bherifl Stone
then returned to Independence and
raised a party of men They started
oat to Benders the very next morn
ing and when rho party arrived at
the place it was discovered that the
family had all decamped They then
hunted around the house and finally
prosecuted their search in the garden
where they found that the ground
had recently been disturbed On re
moving the surface soil they found
the body of Dr York and others who
had been murdered in these crude
graves Hon William Wright and
S 8 Peterson Deputy United Mar
shal at that time followed the wagon
track across the open prairie to
Thayer Kansas which is about
twelve miles distant from the Bender
house There they found the Ben
ders wagon and horses which had
been abandoned They there learned i
that the Benders had taken the train
on the L L G railroad for the I
north The pursuing party tele
graphed the conductor of the train I
and he telegraphed back that the
Benders had stopped at Chinutte or
New Chicago They next telegraphed i
the ticket agent at Chicago or Chi
unite He answered that he had
sold the Benders tickets to Cheiopa i
Kansas which is just two miles from
the Cherokee line Messrs Wright i
and Peterson after obtaining this
valuable information mounted their
horses and rode rapidly back to the
Bender place where they found
Colonel York and Bherifl Stone The
four men at once procured freah
horses and started in all haste for
Chetopia At Oswego they again
procured fresh horses and started
anew for Chetopia only distant eight
miles Then they ascertained that
the Benders lad taken a team and
wagon which was awaiting them
e
there and had gone in a southeasterly
direction toward the Grand River in
the Indian Nation Chetopia is i
about thirty miles from the Grand
River When the pursuing party
reached Chetopia they were only
about three hours behind the Ben
ders They pushed rapidly ahead
and the four men came up with the
fugitives four miles from the Grand
River and there without further cer
emony the Benders met the retribu
tion due their Crimea They were all
ebot ts t death and the bones of old
man Bender his wife John and
Kate he there in a hole dug in the
ground f where they remain at this
dayMr
Mr Wright is now living in Iowa
and Peterson is a resident of Inde
pendence Kansas Stone is living
in Montgomery county Kansas The
scene of the terrible murders was vis
ited a year after their perpetration
and the house had disappeared as
well as most other deuces of the
m > nstrous crimes committed by the
Benders who in their turn met with
wilt punishment and a just retiibu
