less, as that of an olllcer of the law.
Continually exposed to danger of life
and limb; no pension or other publlo ac
knowledgement Is o ITe red In case of
wounds or death received In the per
formance of duty and the protection of
life and property. Many an olllcer per
forms duties, that were the sune amount
of risk taken In military service. It
would Insert bo tils name on tho Immor
tal tablets of history.
The subject of this ek-lcli. although
now nominally In military service,
ss L I II he Is really nothing more than
a civil olllcer acting In the capacity of
commanding a posse ootnltatus, with a
roving commission. Joe Sheelr was
born In Calhuun county, Texas, Novem
ber 7, ISM, and Is consequently only In
his thlrty-llrst year. Ills father was an
American and his mother a Mexlcnn,
consequently he speaks both langunges
with equal fluency, and to this fact ho
can credit much of his success as a de
tective. At the age of three months his
parents moved to llexar county, and set
tled on a farm about twelve miles south
of San Antonio. It was here that Joe
spent his boyhood and youthful days,
early learning the art of the lasso, and
other accomplishments of a ne.tern
stockman. Ills natural Independent and
fearless disposition led hi in Into the cat
tle business, at a time when men of his
disposition were In demand, llefore lie
reached his majority be had often been
pnt In charge of large gangs of men to
gsther up stock, and made several trips
to Kansas in cnarge or large nerus,
For manr rears the denreilatlons
among the cattle and horses were con
tinual In spite of all the efforts of the
constituted legal authorities of the
counties. It seemed to be Impossible
for thieves to be detected, apprehended
and punished. This state of things led
to the organization of the Iloxar County
Stock X'rotectlve association, and the
employment of private oOlcers, who
were to devote thslr entire time and en
ergy to bringing thieves to Justice and
making property more scoure. At the
age or 2i Joe Sbely was chosen as
such olllcer and clothed wliu legal au-
iiioniy. ti wouiu ue uueriy impussioie
dcred. lie soon became a terror toevll
doers. The haunts of thieves were
broken up, aad men wero-lndlcted, ar
rested and sei.t to the penitentiary
who heretofore had almost been above
suspicion. It was here that Joe devel
oped that wonderful detective ability
that has made him a name among the
olllcers of the law. Ills quallllcatlons
have proved of the higher order, which
Is In not only detecting criminals, but In
being able to get at the details of I lie
crime, and In securing their conviction.
In acoupleofyearshosofarbrokeup
the organized system of stock stealing
In this county as to make his services
no further necessary to the association,
and In fact the necessity for the asso
ciation Itself disappeared with the break
ing up of the thieves, and the associa
tion was dissolved. Shely then entered
the service of the county as Criminal
Deputy Sheriff, under T. 1'. McCall. He
continued his work of prosecutlnir the
desperate cattlo and horse thieves, and
endangered his life a thousand times,
receiving a severe wound from the as
sassin's knife, and a slight wound from
a lllstol shot, will e he has iiilrni-nlnn.lv
escaped Innumerable bullets deliberate
ly aimeu at mm.
While n deputy sheriff the oountry
was startled by a series of daring and
bold stage robberies. Their very au
dacity seemed to paralyze the arm of the
United States authorities. It soon be
came apparent that they were commit
ted by an organized band of bold and
desperate men, the number of whom no
one knew.
The newspaper head lines. "The lonir
and short man again." Another stage
mil or passengers rouueu," etc., were al
most stereotyped. In a desperate mood
the Special l'ostal Agent of Texas, Amos
1. Foster decided to employ a special de
tective, and selected Joe Shely among
the thousands of elllclent olllcers In the
State. Soon the reading publlo was
electrified by the announcement that
three of the robbers had been ariested.
They were Bob Logan, itlll Humphries
nnu iiou iiuwiey. uui still siages were
being continually stopped and mall and
passengers robbed. After a short time
another and larger batch of arrests were
nude, and the gang was safely behind
the bars, lncludli.g their leader, Tom
Moody, who for seven years had robbed
more stores and stuges than any inun In
the west. Kveryone of the gang were
In the hands of the olllcers except Tom
Crlsswell, the famous "short man," Tom
Moody being the "long man," Crlsswell
had made good his escape from the
State, and has not again been heard
from.
01 these stage robber, Hob Logan was
sentenced to 10 years; llob ltawly. 10
years, but died In the llexar county Jail;
Tom Moody for-lire: Neal Wllkerson for
life; William l'etth for life; Julius
Starke for 10 years; and John Tlnnan,
10 years, and 11111 Humphries had his
case dismissed for turning State's evi
dence. Soon again the stage was robbed at
Dead Man's Hole, 25 miles north of
Laredo, and then also Just north of Oak
vllle. Speedily thereafter, Tom Drake,
Hob Doughty and J. P. Stonebraker
were arrested and all the plunder taken
from the passengers was recovered.
Tom Drake, the planner of the Jobs, but
not actually present, turned State's evi
dence and had his case dismissed, but
was afterwards shot down In the publlo
plaza of 8 an Diego, unmourned. and his
slayer not even arrested. Hob Doughtv
was sentenced to siven years, anil
Stonebrakir to ten.
The desperate gang of robbers had
been arrest, il. and the r nromnt tmnlsh-
ment aoted n a wholesome warning to
oiurr, aim ine neeu oi n special oeteo

about this desirable sluln nf nlliilr.
rue uunureus ot miles or lonely
riding over plains, valleys and
mountains, in rain, and under the scorch
ing sun In daylight and In darkness,
assoolatlng with desperate men, and u
thousand exposures to death. liut the
worjc was linlsbed and well done; the
country was rid or the roost perfect or-
?:anlzailon of desperadoes that ever In
cited It. Joe Sbely'i services were do
more needed as speelal detective of the
postal department, bnt his nervlres were
sought In another direction. He was
appointed as Motirled Inspector nflhe
Custom house at Laredo, but still re
tained his commission as Special Deputy
United States Marshal, tinder the
lamented Hal L. Gosling.
In this capacity he continued his elll
clent sen Iocs, and made tho most famous
arrest of the many hundreds ho has
made. It was that of Marsh l'olk, tho
defaulting Stale Treasurer ofTennessee.
l'olk had succeeded In eluding and brib
ing the hundreds odeteclltes put upon
his track, until ho had reached the sight
or the blue hills of Mexico and llberiy.
Ills heart began beating high with hope,
and long brcathsuf relief escaped him as
he left the train at Webb station, from
where he intended to crocs the lllo
Uraude above Lnrcdo. Hut tho wires
had carried the news to Joe Shely. who
was Instantly In the saddle, and ltkp n
bloodhound, was quickly on the trail.
Folk hail an experienced guide and was
using all precautions against capture,
but he had a keener pursuer afler him,
and was round hiding In the ehapparat.
Imagine theuhagrin of the fleeing Trean
urvr. He, In a desperate mood, ollered
his caplor all the money he had about
his person, amounting to over $SI,0u0,
but Joe Shely was not n bribe taker, but
a thief taker, and the arlstocrntio crim
inal was returned to Tennessee, tried nml
convicted.
May 4. 1SS3, Captain Lee Hall having
resigned the command of the famous
company of rangers organized anil suc
cessfully commanded by the gallant
Captain McNally, It was ollered tu
Jou Shely, with rank or First Lieuten
ant. UN servhesas a ranger has been
as highly satisfactory as thoso In
his ((inner capacities. He has
been promoted to a Captaincy, and tho
last nnnnal report or the Adjutant Gen
eral ot Texas shows that the number of
arrests made by Captain Joo Shely's
company exceed those of the entire bal
ance of the battalion or live companies.
There are probably few Instances In
history where In n short career or eight
jenrs so luucli or actual services have
been rendered oln dangerous nnd excit
ing nature, as that or Captain Shely; and
very naturally ho has enemies, many of
whom are powerful and Influential, hut
still he has friends who also gratefully
remember his signal services.
In appearance Captain Shely Is mod
est and Inassiimlng. He Is a little above
average height, standing about U feet,
and well developed, weighing about 1110
pounds, He has black hair and eyes,
wests a heavy black moustache, nnd
shows his Mexican blood In his bronze
cheeks, tinged with ft deep crimson.
Ills voice Is deep and musical, nnd his
bearing military, wlthontnswaggcr,but
would attract attention among ten
thousand as the embodiment or physical
strength nnd endurance. In conversa
tion he li affable and polite, and his
frank, open countenance Is the Inst you
would Imagine to belong to a successful
detective and thief taker. Here, among
thoHo who have known him from child
hood, he Is simply Joe, but In time to
come ho will furnish excellent ground
work for many a thrilling tale of border
life.
On the l.'lh or June Captain Shely
tendered his resignation to the (Jov
crnor.who, ufierun urgent remonstrance
nceeptcd the same, and thusthls elllclent
olllcer returned to the, walks of private

Lee's Chances In Virginia.
Nkw Voiik, October IS. The sermon
at the funeral of Cardinal MoCloskcy,
this morning, was preached by Archbis
hop Gibbons, or Mull I mote. The text or
the sermon was Kccleslastlns.A. "The.e
words, pokcn originally or Aaron,"
said the speaker, "may be fittingly ap
plied to the great high priest whom mor
tal remains now lie before you. He was
also chosen out of all men to till the
highest ecclesiastical position In this na
tion. That he might teach Jacob his
testimonies and give light to Isreat t is his
law. The glorious ornaments or a pon
tiff, to which tho sacred text referred,
had a twofold slgnlllcatlon. They sym
bolized In the eyes of the peoplo his
spiritual dignity and authority. To Ihe
pontiff bluiseir they represented the In
terior ornaments of virtue with which
he should be adorned, and without
which the most precious ornaments loso
their lustre. These scarlet rubeMifthe
Cardinal remind you of the exalted dig-
nity to which he was raised. They i
mind himself of Hie garment of Inn
cenos won by his divine martyr and
crimsoned with his precious blood and
mai i.e anouiti oe ready if necessary to
lay down his lire for the faith. The
Cardinal's death had brought sorrow to
tho universal church as well as tho
church of America and New York. It
has fllled with gtlef the great heart of
the sovereign pontiff and Ihe college or
cardinals, of which he was an Illustrious
and distinguished memlicr. It has
fallen heavily on you, venerable breth
ren or the clergy, and the sadness de
picted on your countenances Is the ex
pression of grief which fills your hearts.
Nor was this grler conllned to thoso
who were of the household or the faith.
It extended to all classes and
creeds of tho community The great
heart of New York had mourned hi in as
well beoama this Kmplre City, lament
ing the death or ono or Its most Illustri
ous and honored citizens. Neither
worldly rower or place could command
such heartfelt and universal respect as
been paid to thr remains of your rever
end prelate. He had won tho henrn nf
the people. The Christian prelate was
always a man or mark, the centre ol
observation to the eyes or the werhl.

It Is esteemed a great privilege ror a
citizen to represent tills great republic

never been written and never can be,

features In his loug and eventful career.
Coi.uji nun, October 15. The olllcial re
turns Irom nearly all the precincts can
vassed since Tuesday night, make
Foraker's plurality touch 21,000, with
the rest or the tloket likely to exceed
that. There are, too, ZI.OOO votes for
prohibitionists and 2000 for greenbackers
In u total voto of over 700,000. The
Legislature Is Hepublloan on a Joint bal
lot, without the 14 members from Ham
ilton county, by at least live, and proba
bly nine, but without Hamilton county
Ihe Senate would likely have ono Demo
oratlo majority. With Hamilton coun-
jorlty or:tl on Joint ballot, and a work
ing majority In each branch.
Cincinnati, October IS. There can bo
no absolute certainty about the result of
Tuesday's election in Hamilton county
until the olllcial count la made. The
vote In two precincts of the Nineteenth
ward, whoso counting was unfinished
lust night, has now Ticen counted and
the result for Governor, with one county
precinct missing, which in 1SSI gave 17
Republican mnority, stands thus:
Hnadley 33,007, Foraker 33,302, Leonard
1020. lloadley's plurality 303. Returns
are fiir from complete on the Legislative
ticket. The Times-Star estimates that
tho average vote on Republican mem
bers or the Legislature exceeds Foraker's
vote by 1015. U that rate Is maintained
II would elect the Republican delega
tion, except Robert Harlan. Nothing
can determine this contingency except
State, exclusive or Hamilton county, In
dicate a plurality of from 10,010 to 20,000
for Foraker.
Cincinnati, October IS. Governor
Meet Judge Foraker, being asked what
ho regarded as the leading motives that
had led to the result In Ohio, sa'd:
1. The Republicans regarded It as Im
portant that a decisive expression should
be given at the first election after the
beginning of a Democratlo National ad
ministration. 3. A determination to give an expres
sion in favor of free ballot and a fair
count In all our elections.
3. Distrust concerning the free trade
tendencies of the Democratlo party,
coupled with a recognition of the neces
sity ol maintaining the Republican as
cendency In the United States Senate,
-I, Disgust with the Democratlo State
administration In Ohio, notably Ibo elec
toln of the last Senator and extrava
gance of the last Legislature.
S. A wish to have the liquor trnfllo
regulated and taxed as a practical
method of dealing with the subject, and
dissatisfaction with the Democratlo li
cense which Is Impracticable.
