A BAD MAN IN BROADCLOTH.
Ha Never Dranfc and Seldom Swore, But Would Fight Anything on Earth. From the New York Sun. San Francisco, Dec. I.—When Hep- Tvorth Dixon c; raa to California he was en tertained one evening by a member of the Bohemian Club. After dinner Mr. Dixon, Col. Cremony, Gideon Denny, and Dr. Chis naore sat at a table in the card room talking about California, when Mr. Dixon said: “I have heard many singular things about the prevalence of the practice of carrying deadly weapons out here, but I don’t know whether to relieve all I hear. It occurs to me that the tendency to ‘stufF the newcomer may account for these stories, I would like to know the truth. Now, for example, how is it with you gentlemen? Are any of you armed?” The three Californians looked at one another, and Col. Cremony was the first to respond. “I have a little trifle here,” he said, drawing from under his vest and plac ing upon the table a krdfe about eighteen inches long, which he always carried. The doctor reached around to his hip pocket, took out a self-cocker, and placed it beside the knife, saying: “Here’s a play thing I happen to nave about me." Mr. Dixon looked surprised. Then Mr. Denny went down into a pocket and fished out an enormous Colt’s navy, which he held out for Mr. Dixon’s inspec tion. “Dear me,” said Mr. Dixon, recoil ing from the weapon, “and are you expert in the use of that thing?” “Play a tune on it,” replied Mr. Denny, sententiously, toying with the hammer nonchalantly. From that moment Hep worth Dixon never doubted that every gentleman in California went about armed to the teeth. After he had left the club Denuv took the doctor aside and said: “How did you happen to have a gun in your pocket to-night?” “Been out trying it to-day to see if it works. But how is that you are heeled with that big navy?” Mr. Denny explained that he, too, had been out testing some new cartridges for target practice. But they never told Mr. Dixon how it happened." He could have gone through the whole club at any other time, and not found a weapon except Cremony’s big knife. The revolver and bowie knife are no longer indispensable parts of a gentleman's attire, and the bad man with a gun has disappeared from the streets. The old-time desperadoes have been killed off, or have emigrated to the territories. One of them went the way of ail fighters, down in Arizona recently. He had a history, and when the item about his death was read in the club a demand was made upon the doctor for the story of “the Bad Man of Cosumue.” “It was back in the sixties when I first saw my desperado,” said the doctor. “ W hen he came into camp I didn’t know whether he was a bad man or a pretender in that line. He was tall, angular, wiry and singu larly unhandsome. He wore a suit of black broadcloth and a tall hat, and was scrupu lously neat in the matters of linen and per sonal appearance. The right leg of his trousers was tucked into his boot, and the left leg was outside in proper style. In his right boot be carried an enormous bowie knife, and you could see by the set of his frock coat over his hip that he packed a gun. “He spoke slowly and deliberately, and was punctiliously polite. His long drawl heightened the effect of his ceremonious courtesy, and at the same time proclaimed him a southerner. He seldom swore and never drank, and his only small vice was smoking. He occasionally referred to him self as ‘a pop-eyed galoot from Arkansaw,’ and he was. “Although my gentleman in broadcloth was politeness personified, he was very aggressive and quick to take offense. If he heard anybody making a bluff about fight ing he couldn’t keep his tongue still, but came right to the front with an offer to fight anyhow, anywhere and any time. Toward quiet and peaceable men he was gravely courteous and never in the least aggressive, but if a fighting man showed up Gibbons was uneasy until he had driven the fellow out of camp. “Cosumne was then anew camp, claim jumping was a flourishing industry, and every miner had to be prepared to defend his location. I had a quartz claim on a ledge that dipped to the east, and some fellow had conceived the brilliant idea of sinking a shaft fifty feet east of my shaft and tapping my ledge. I noticed that the fellow was getting pretty thick with the man in broadcloth, and whenever I met the latter he was so severely polite that I knew he was only waiting for a careless slip in my speech or manner as a pretext for taking offense. “I wrote to my superintendent at another mine that a desperado was in company with the claim jumper, aud that I expected trouble. He wrote back: ‘ls he at work? Is be willing to work? If he is not at work and will work, hire him, and he is your and sperado.’ “The next day, when I met the ‘pop-eyed g doot from Arkansaw,’ I said, ‘Good morn lag, Mr. Gibbons.’ He lifted his hat and g avely replied: ‘Good morning, doctor, I trust you air well, sir.’ “ ‘Mr. Gibbons,’ I said, ‘may I ask if you ar looking for work ?’ “ ‘That’s just what I am doing, sir.’ “Are you a miner* Do you know any th ng about sinking a shaft? I asked. ‘ Wall, sir,’ he replied, ‘I reckon I’m the be it miner on top of God’s green airth.’ “I then asked him what wages be wanted. Toe going rate was $3 a day, but when he sa. i*4so I promptly engaged him. The next day he went with me down to the cla m. Ho was dressed as usual, and Car rie 1 something tied up in a red silk hand kerchief. When we got to the shaft he op ued his bundle and laid out a miner’s suit. He took off his hat, wiped it carefully with the bandana, spread the haudkerchief on the gronnd, and tenderly placed his hat upon it. Slowly and with dignity he ‘shucked’ his broadcloth, got into the miner’s suit, shifted bis weapons to her new rig, and weut down the shaft, which was omv eight feet deep. “Gibbons had been working about an hour w hen tho man who wanted part of my ledge came along with a companion, and lie and one end of a tape at the edge of my shaft to measure off fifty feet eastward. Gibbons climbed slowly to the surface, glanced severely at the man who had been his associate the day before, tumod to mo and said: ‘Doctor, will you be good and kind enough to let me cut that fellow’s head off ? “Of course I told him not to do it, and ho want back down the shaft looking much disappointed, but that other chap never sank any prospect hole on my ledge. “Gibbons was something of a boaster, but he was no liar or bluffer. Ho was the best miner I ever knew, and a fighter from the ground up. While he worked for me he considered himself personally responsible for whatever I said, and would fight for me if I would let him. “Of course he had to prove his claims as a fighter before he had been in camp very long. One evening a big fellow.hristling with deadly weapons, swaggered into the saloon and ordered all hands up to the bar. Every body responded except Gibbons, who re mained seated and paid no attention to the follow. When tho stranger turned about and said, ‘Come up here, rop-eye, and take your medicine,’ Gibbons answered with crave politeness, ‘1 ain much obliged to you, sir, but l never drink.’ “After all had taken their drinks and walked away, Gibbons stepped up and said to the barkeeper: ‘Give me a cigar.’ The Hrunger turned upon him and said: * you, I didn’t ask you to have a cigar.’ * yon, sir,’ rejoined Gibbons, ‘I didn’t ask you to pay for my cigar. And '—r you, sir, don’t you talk to me that way or I will cut your head off, sir.’ “ right in,’ said the stranger. ‘l’ve got a tough neck to cut.’ But tiefore he could draw a weapon mv had man in broad cloth seized him by the nair, bent his head back, whipped out the big bewie, and made ’wo lightning slashes at the fellow’s throat. l oe point of the knife just out the skin c..ough to draw blood at each stroke. “Letting go his hold. Gibbons drawled: ‘l’ve a pretty good knife for cutting, stranger, and walked away, supremel v con temptuous of the fellow, who sneaked out of camp. “The last time I saw Gibbons he was just getting over a little fracas with a Mexican. The greaser was a noted knife fighter, and his preseuco in camp made Gibbons uneasy, but no chance tor picking a quarrel occur red. Uue day Gibbons, who could endure it no longer, met the Mexican and politely asked him if he was heeled. The man re plied that he was not. ‘Very well,’ said Gibbons, ‘go and get your knife, because I intend to kill you, sir, the next time 1 have the pleasure of meeting you. ’ “They met within au hour. Gibbous re ceived thirteen wounds, all on the left side, and one thrust was in his throat, the Mexi caa's blade going clear through his neck. The Mexican was killed.” HOW TO BECOME A MECHANIC. Some Directions of Use to Young Men Learning Trades. From II ood and Iron. Perhaps no question in the whole range of mechanics is asked with so much earn estness and usually receives so meager a re ply as that from the young man who asks: “How can I become a good mechanic?” In nearly every case the young man asking this question feels that the circumstances surrounding him absolutely prohibit the idea of his attendance at any ot the techni cal schools, aud in his despair of finding any way himself, he turns to the editor of sopiu mechanical journal. Too often he is told to read such and such a book, regardless of the fact that the reading of no one,u or a dozen books, nor a hundred books will make a mechanic of him. As one who has been compelled to get all of his mechanical information without personal assistance from any one, it may not be out of place for us to outline such plans as have been of the most help to us. The best of all mechanical educators of to-day is the me chanical journal. Let the young man who wishes to become a mechanic subscribe and pay for one or two such journals as have a special beariug upon what he wishes to learn. W a say pay for it because there is a moral influence of having paid for what ha is getting that will cause him to obtain more real information from one journal so ob tained than from a dozen which may be given him. Each number should be read carefully, and every article studied so thor oughly as to be certain that there are no points not understood. Nor is this all. Each statement made should be carefully compared with every day experience, and when items of infor mation are conveyed that have no direct relationship to bis present surroundings he should enter upon experiments or earoiully retain the remarks until he can find such au opportunity. It is by the careful compari son of others’ statements with one’s own practical experience that the best and truest knowledge of mechanics comes. Books on various subjects are also of great advantage to the young mechanic. In fact, they be come a necessity, if he wishes to devel p far in mechanical science; but as a great number of minds are wiser than any one mind, so is the technical journal, winch is the reflex of many minds, better than the book, which is the reflex of only one mind. On the practical side of the question the yonng mechanic should carefully study the machine with which he comes in daily con tact. A long time spent in the study of a single machi . e may seem like a waste of time to the beginner, but if .he thoroughly under stands but one machine, he has traveled a long road toward the comprehension of all machines. By the understanding of a ma chine is meant not only understanding how it operates but how it is made, the thick ness and kind of metal, the size of bolts, the proportions and general arrangements of parts. The best way to go about the study of a machine is to carefully make a set of drawings of it, letting everything in the drawing be of the exact size and propor tion that is in the actual machine. Having made this drawing, the next study, and the one that will give the test to native ability, is to locate in the machine the amount, kind, and direction of the strains that come upon it when in operation, and see if the proportions are in true relationship to these strains. If he finds in his work wha.t are apparent weaknesses in the machine let him then carefully watch it in operation, with every nerve on the alert, and see it l e call detect these as actual weaknesses. If this work is made and studied out faithfully, without the assistance of any one it will be of vastly more benefit to him than anything he could possibly learn in a college. Having ex tracted all the information possible from the first machine, let him take another of a somewhat different class and go through it in the same way. A comparison of the strains and proportions in one machine to the strains and proportions in theother will give some idea of the latitude exercised by designers. If tho young man has the true mechanical instincts, i his investigation will have an absorbing interest to him, and he will see a wide vista of thought opening up before his mind, w hich in after years will bring forth good fruit, Such work is not impossible nor even hard for the young man who has to work ten hours a day for his living. If he has any real desire, real ambition to become a good moetiauic his spare moments, morning, noun and night, will be turned upon his investi gations, and even in so short a time as a few months he will find that he has made wonderful progress. The watchword of advdnee is, think. Think in all times end places. Remember that one hour’s earnest thought UDon a subject on which you have been reading is north ten extra hours of reading upon it. The mechanic who will persistently study and think on his business will not down. He will certainly come to the front even though he were confined in the walls of a prison. PROPOSALS WANTED. NOTICE.
