Beat of war in Wyoming. For if ever
the natural bad man had a naturally
bad place to go where he might scoff

Hole in the Wall, as it has become
known. The history of those who have

bad men first, last, and all the time —
men who seem to welcome the wages

Original Wyoming Wild Bunch
When "Kid" Curry, or, to use his
real name, Logan—if that is the real
one—shot himself last July near Para
chute, Col., after being hunted down
for robbing a Rio Grande train, express
messengers, bank directors and others
concerned with keeping inviolate their
own and other people's money, shook
hands all round. The news of the
death of Logan was looked upon as
glad tidings. An overenthusiastic offi
cial at Grand Junction wired to the
Pinkerton offices in Chicago:
."Dead robber absolutely identified as
Logan. This means the end of the
Hole in the Wall gang."
It was a cheerful message and it
distinctly encouraged the financial in
terests in small Western towns. For
these interests are generally very little
concerned over "panics" and. the like,
as they are understood in the East.
But they are concerned over the possi
ble descent of armed thieves looking
" for booty and ready to shoot.
"Kid" Curry out of the way and the
remainder of the gang dead or scat
tered meant much up around Casper
and Buffalo, Wyo., along the Great
t Northern in Montana, and even as far
south as the northern tier of Colorado
counties. For the Hole in the Wall
gang had made matters mightily in
teresting for a number of years. This
was the "wild bunch" that* had robbed
the Butte county bank at Belle Four
che, S. D., in 1897; that had held up a
Union Pacific train at Wilcox Wyo.,
in 1899f that had robbed another train
at Tiptpn. looted the First National
bank, of Winnemucha, Nev., of $32,640
in 1900, and taken $35,000 from a Great
Northern train at Wagner, Mont., in
1901. There were other small bank
robberies within their field of opera
tions, a_nd when the Pinkertons were
put On the track of the gang and
finally succeeded in scattering it, the
survivors went on their way individu
ally until arrest followed arrest, killing
followed killing, and the bunch nar
rd\ved down to the "Kid" and two
"The Hole In the Wall" gang has
been disrupted, but—
An Imitation of the Real Thing
At Cody, Wyo., the other day, four
desperadoes descended on the First Na
tional bank. This is Buffalo Bill's
town. "Some day, he believes, it will be
a great metropolis. The bank, at any
rate, is a curious place. It looks like
a fort, once you get inside, for it bris
tles with arms and there is a large
plate of armor, behind which the offi
cials may retire and pour forth,
through appropriate apertures, a rain
of fire. There is very little wood
work in the bank anywhere, and the
vault has been declared one of the
safest in the West.
In the attack on the bank last Tues
day the bandits evidently knew that
they were undertaking a hard job, but
their idea was that they could easily
dispose of the one man about at the
time they attacked. This was Cashier
Middaugh. The cashier, however, was
game. When the men "rushed" the
bank he sought the armory. The result
was a four to one battle. The cashier
was killed, but the robbers were com
pelled to retreat. They retreated, ac
cording to accounts, to the "Hole in
the Wall."
And herein old history mixes with
new, and the question arises, "Has the
'wild bunch' been revived? Was it
really Kid' Curry that was shot at
What Hole in the Wall Really Is
First, as to the Hole in the Wall. No
bandit of Tangier or of Macedonia ever
had a safer retreat. For years it has
been the abiding place, the refuge, of
the red desperadoes of the great West.
Specifically, it is a part of the United
States and of the state of Wyoming a
district of. the Big Horn mountains,
known colloquially as the Tetons. It is
approximately fifty miles south of Buf
falo, Wyo., and probably eighty or a
hundred miles northwest of Casper.
Once upon a time it was evidently a
great lake. In the course of centuries
the waters ate their way by a narrow
stream through one end and formed an
outlet. As age after age went by the
outlet became a deep gorge, the waters
of the lake sank lower and lower until
today there is in what was once its bed
a chain of little lakes and swift streams
that in the spring become torrents In
receding the waters left a basin hem
med in by rugged mountains, that rise
several hundred feet almost sheer, and
these walls are broken by crevices and
caverns that have subterranean pas
sages from one to the other, so that a
person familiar with the place could
hide for days with his pursuers less
than a hundred yards away. The only
entrance and the only exit is the gorge
through which the little stream rushes
in and again out into open lower coun
try. Here, too, the wails rise abruptly
like the canyons in Colorado, and so
narrow is the trail that not more than
two horsemen rtiay ride abreast.
And there is no law in the Hoie in the
Wall, excepting such law as the bandits
who resort thither observe among them
selves.' If to this retreat the robbers are
tracked by Buffalo Biil and his friends
who are now on the trail, or by the var
ious posses that have been sent out, there
will be a battle worth while. And yet this
revived "Wild Bunch" may be as elusive
as was tm? old bunch for years. And it
is the old bunch that now claims the at
tention in retrospect.
From All Corners of the West.
The beginning of the "Wild Bunch" is
«ot less interesting than its end. They
came together from all corners of the
West for mutual protection and com
birMKl plunder. Hunted from place to
piute for individual crimes that ranged
from train holdups to murders, but in
cluded nothing petty, they were
"rounded up" at last in this wild section
of the Big Horn mountains in Wyoming
known as the Hole in the Wall. From
this natural stockade they defied au
thority, issuing forth from time to time
to prey upon stage coaches, express
trains, small banks, and, indeed, country
Then followed dashing rides, some
times for hundreds of miles, back to the
Hole in the Wall —immune from arrest
when once hid within its impenetrable
fastnesses. They formed, as nearly as
such a thing can be, a trust in outlawry,
and it is significant that the forces of
law and order slowly, surely, inevitably
closed in upon them and one by one
hunted them down and made them pay
the penalty. Their resistance was fu
tile. Out of all the unflinching men that
formed the "Wild Bunch" and made their
home in the Hole in the Wall only two
remained at large at last accounts. These
men were "Butch" Cassidy and Harry
Longbaugh, "the Sundance Kid." These
were at one time driven from the country
but were pursued even In foreign lands.
Robert A. Pinkerton. writing not long
since to a client bank that had suffered
at the hands of the fugitives, said:
"We have good reason to believe that
at an early date we will definitely locate
both Longbaugh and Cassidy. when we
will ask you to authorize us to secure
their arrest and extradition to Nevada
for trial. Such action would be a whole
some lesson to future combinations of
outlaws who may undertake to organize
a new "Wild Bunch" band and operate on
banks in the far West."
In view of the resuscitation at Cody it
appears not impossible that the two elu
sive members of the "Wild Bunch" have
done Just what the detective feared, and
are once more out on the bad lands of
Wyoming. If they are, look out. No one
who knows these two —least of all a Pin
kerton man—expects either to surrender
without a fight. It is a part of the des
perate creed of these desperate men nev
er to .be taken alive, and some estimate
of their composite character may be
gathered from the fact that six of the
nine leaders captured were killed resist
ing arrest; that one, after killing a sher
iff, was overcome desperately wounded
and subsequently hanged, and that In
the relentless pursuit of the bandits in
many states two sheriffs and three dep
uties have been assassinated by the out
laws and many deputies, detectives, po
licemen and private citizens wounded.
Whatever records there may be now
are incomplete and await returns from
Mr. Cassidy and Mr. Longbaugh. still at
large. When, driven further and fur
ther from civilization. these robbers,
"hold-ups," and murderers by common
consent finally selected the Hole in the
Wall for their rendezvous, they chose of
all places in this or perhaps any other
country the one most admirably suited
for such a purpose. Here ten men can
defy a thousand and one man elude a
hundred for months. It is worthy of ob
servation that of all those of the \\ il«l
Bunch who have been "rounded up" by
law and order not one has come to his
reckoning in the Hoie in the Wall. It
may be that within its walls there have
lurked some minor members of the band
who have not dared to risk a fight in
the open until now. It may be that sev
eral are living withan the fortress —per-
haps even under the leadership of "Bill"
Cruzans. Report has it that •"Bill"
Cruzans died fighting, but Western sher
iffs whose lives may depend on knowing
such things shake their heads and say,
"We are not certain."
A Criminal Retreat for Fifteen Years
From the Hole in the Wall a s their
headquarters the "Wild Bunch" made
their sorties. For nearly fifteen years
bandits have made the Hole in the Wall
their hiding place. In 1892 a Northern
Pacific train was h.eld up near Big Tim
ber, Mont., and the express car robbed.
The work showed the hand of daring
professionals, and a posse was formed.
In the fight that followed one low
browed criminal was captured. He was
Camilla Hanks, perhaps better known
as "Deaf Charlie," and it is believed that
through him came the first positive in
formation regarding the formation of the
"Wild Bunch." Hanks was born and
brought up after a fashion in Yoiktown,
Tex., and early in his history he became
a fugitive from there for murdering a
ranchman and attacking his wife. He
escaped a. mob and was next heard from
in New Mexico, where he murdered a
woman. These were old records and prac
tically forgotten when Hanks was cap
tured in 1892. He was tried for the rob
bery of the express train and sentenced
to ten years in the penitentiary at Deer
Lodge, Mont.
Hanks was the first of the "Wild
Bunch" to pay the law's penalty, and
when he had served his sentence he con
gratulated himself upon the lightness of
it and immediately upon his release made
his way to the Hole in the Wall and
joined his old companions, who in the
meantime had not been idle. One of the
leaders, "Lonny" Logan, alias Lee. a
brother of "Kid" Curry. whose real
name was Harvey Logan, had gone with
the "Kid" to visit their home in Dod
son. Mo. While there Pinkerton de
tectives who had been waiting for such
a visit, together with members of the
Kansas City police force, surrounded the
house. In the fight that followed "Lon
ny" Logan was killed, hut "Kid" Curry
escaped, departed from Missouri and fled
back to Wyoming. In the "Wild Bunch"
before "Lenny" Logan's death were
"Tom" Ketchum. bettor known as "Black
Jack," the original leader of the band:
"Sam" Ketchum, a brother; the two Lo
gans; William, known as "Bill," Carver,
a sneering, cold-blooded desperado who
feared nothing on earth and stopped at
nothing; George L. Curry, alias Flat
Nose George;" "Bob" Lee. alias "Bob"
Curry, said to be a cousin of the Logans:
"Ben" Kilpatrick. alias -the tall Texan."
a handsome daredevil man of splendid
physique, who boasted more than once
he would never be taken alive' Camilla
Hanks. "Tom" O'Day. and Elsa Lay.
The Only Woman Who Ever Belonged
There were others who were suspect
ed of belonging to the "bunch,"' and who
made the Hole in the Wall their place of
refuge, but they were never satisfactorily
catalogued, and. at any rate, were never
leader?. Only one woman ever belonged
to the "Wild Bunch." She was I-nira
Bullion, variously known as Delia Rose
and Clara Hays. Other women may have
shared the confidence of the band at
times—indetd. there is a photograph ex
tant of ''KM" Curry taken in Texas with
a young woman of apparent refinement,
and the authorities who have seen it re
frain from publishing it on the ground
that the young woman is of resjtoctahle
family and knew nothing of the record
of the man with whom she posed before
the camera. But Laura Bullion is the
only woman who ever worked with the
"bunch" and. dressed in men's attire, is
said to have assisted in more than one
of their hard riding raids. After the
killmg of "Lonny" Logan the extermina
tion of the "Wild Bunch" was carried
on with great vigor and unusual suc
In the subsequent operations the band
made two tactical mistakes. The first one
was the safe blowing and robbery of the
Butte County bank at Belle Fourche.
S. D. Now. this bank is a memoer of
the American Bankers' association,
guarded by its protective committee, or
ganized by the Plafcertons, and the rob
bery of it l>y these men was a deliberate
challenge. The protective committee has
one motto. "When a member of the asso
ciation is robbed never give up until the
robber U brought to justice." Every pro
fessional criminal in this country knows
that. Thirty thousand dollars is spent ev
ery year in running down those fc—«
dared to prey upon the association banks,
ana" statistics show the salutary effect
of ttiis relentless method. In the
office of George S. Dougherty,
whoso keen eye can classify a
criminal from a photograph, hangs a
map of the United States, on which tags
of red and other tags of white stuck in
the dots representing towns and cities
show the bank robberies of various kinds
throughout this country. The red tags
represent banks members of the associa
tion; the white tags those outside of it.
They hang there so thick that they seem
like fringe on an Oriental lug. and the
reds are almost lost in the whites, the
proportion being about one red to ten of
the white.
Made Another Mistake at Belle Fourche
The second mistake of the "Wild
Bunch" was : the . Great, Norther n' express
train "holdup"" ,' at I Wagner,-' Mont., " July 3.';
1901. : In r this. robbery the . "bunch" ; gained
possession of ' $10 " and "• $20 " notes -: of r the
National Bank of. Montana and i the Amer

bank: notes were unsigned and more than
once the circulation of them, with the
spaces ', for the " president's " and cashier's
names still. blank' or clumsily: forged, 1 led
to the trapping of a member of the band.
But ;that these . outlaws - cared ~ little ~ for

denced :. by. i the fact that they took no

members of the band ' entered the doors
of: the First National bank at.Wlnnemuc-'.
ca. T New, a member of the association,
and with drawn "■ revolvers compelled - the
officials of the bank to turn over to them
The robbers chose the noon hour, when
the little town was busiest, but they held
up citizens, prevented any rescue, and
then, mounting their horses, fled, pur
sued by a posse for many miles, but, es
caping into the mountains, made ftiey
way back to the Hole in the Wall to di
vide their plunder. There were many
such flights and escapes, thrilling battles
of the few against the many, carried on
in Indian fashion over many miles. The
"bunch" operated In no less than eight
states and territories. Their plots laid
in the Hole in the Wall were executed
in Texas. Arizona. New Mexico. Colorado.
Nevada. Wyoming. Montana and Idaho.
A holdup once agreed upon, these ban
dits would leave their retreat one by one
and meet semetimes weeks, sometimes
days, later at the appointed place. Then
would come the holdup of the train or
the robbery of the bank, as the case
might be. the running fight for temporary
safety, and then separation, to meet at
the Hole in the Wall, to stay there until
the world outside was tranquil again.
Sheriff Hazen Was Killed
Thus, one of the boldest »f the fights
made for liberty followed the startling
holdup of the Union Pacific train at Wil
cox Lodge. Wyo.. June 2. 1899. There the
engine driver waß forced to have the
train uncoupled and to take the engine
and express car across the Wilcox bridge.
The bandits then blew up this bridge
with dynamite and robbed the express
car at their leisure, obtaining, however,
only about $3,000. Sheriff Hazen, of
Converse county, and a posse were soon
in pursuit. The Platte river lies be
tween the Hole in the Wall and Wilcox
bridge. It was swollen, and a bridge at
Copper, seventy miles from the scene of
the hold-up, afforded the only available
crossing. Sheriff Hazen did not believe
the bandits would dare attempt to cross
this, and he regarded capture of the out
laws as certain.
But the man did get across. They rode
boldly through the town at night and fled
with stolen horses. Hazen was soon aft
er them and he came across the tend at
Elk mountain, one of the aides of the
Hole in the Wall. There the stand was
made. It was four against 400. They
fought behind trees and rocks.
Hazen was killed early in the fight,
and for miles the battle was kept up, the
l'undits skulking from rock to rock, oc
casionally making a stand and wounding
a deputy, but always getting nearer and
nearer the Hole in the Wall, where safety
was sure. The battle lasted for days,
but the outlaws won. although at times
they were reported surrounded and the
posse sent word back to civilization that
the band would be wiped out. But, in
spite of the charmed life they seemefl to
bear, the members of the "Wild Bunch"
could not long delay the inevitable. After
each robbery they jiad to be more care
ful, and the entrance to their camp was
so closely guarded that they often stay
ed far afield, and It was in this way that
they were tracked, and, one by one, came
to their accounting.
Gang Paid the Wages of Sin
First, there was "Flat Nose George."
a sort of deputy leader, who was chased
by a sheriffs posse, after a train rob
bery In Utah, and killed resisting ar
rest. The only photograph of him ever
taken Is a testimonial to the marksman
ship of I'tah deputies.
Then came "Sam" Ketchum. who was
wounded in a fight with a pos«e. after
the holdup on the Colorado & Southern
railroad at Cimarron, N. M. lie was |
left for dead, but recovered sufficiently
to stand trial. He died from the ef
f«rts of his wound in the penitentiary at
Santa Fe..
Soon after this "Blaok Jack." his
brother and the original leader of the
band, was captured, but not until sur
rounded by men who wanted him for the
same holdup in which he had killed
Sheriff Kdward Parr and had wounded i
several of his deputies. For this crime
he was hanged at Clayton, N. M.. April
:.'«. 1901. the only member of the "Bunch'
that ever expiated his crimes on the
gallows. In the same fight and for the
sam t - holdup Klza I^ay was captured and
ha is serving a life ■cuttnoe at Santa
Ke. •Tom" O'Day is ;ilso in the peni
tentiary, captured by a poi
At Cripple Creek. Col.. "Bob" I,ee fell
into a trap laid by Pinkert.m ,1. it
and was taken back to Wyoming and
sent to prison for the train robbery at
Wilcox bridge.

But that has been said before of other
members of the "bunch" and proved to
be inaccurate. In KJlpatrick's pocket
was a key to a room in the Laclede ho
tel, which the detectives promptly took,
and when they went to the room there
was Laura Bullion, smoking a cigarette.
She, too, is in Jefferson City now, for in
her satchel were found several thousand
dollars in unsigned bank notes.
The La«t Stand of "Kid" Curry
It remained for "K«d" Curry to make
the last stand—lf. indeed, it was 'Xid 1
Curry who was killed at Parachute. The
"Kid" is worth a whole 5-cent novel of
40,000 words, all to himself. When the
gang was being scattered Curry went to
Knoxville. and might have remained
there indefinitely had he not become in
volved In a quarrel with a saloon keeper.
Following Western tactics, he shot his
man. When two policemen came he shot
them, and when the surprised citizens in
the saloon sought to interfere, he hald
them off with his revolvers, and backing
out of a rear door, leaped thirty feet
down Into a railroad cut. He was cap
tured two days later, half starved and
frozen, his legs sprained and his weapons
gone. They had been lost in that leap
in the dark. He was quickly recognized
by his ancient enemy, the Pinkertons.
and at their suggestion a guard was
placed at his cell door, armed with a
rifle, and the '-Kid" was searched every
day. in spite of that he obtained some
broom wire, lassoed the guard, got his
rifle and keys, "held up" other guards he
met, let himself out of the jail and es
caped upon a horse he found standing
near. He was pursued for days, but got
safely away.
Nothing was heard of him for some
time. On June 7 last the west-bound
passenger train on the Denver & Rio
Grande railroad was held up near Para
chute, in Western Colorado. The robbers,
three in number, blew the safe In the
express car, rifled it, and fnen detached
the express car from the train and es
caped. Posses were organized at once
and gave chase. The robbers were well
mounted, but their horses had run down
and they abandoned them June 2. On
the same day they stole three horses from
Ranchman Bandy, near Rifle. Col. Kid
Curry's horse gave out and he stopped
at the Larsen cabin, where he took the
little mare "who couldn't be caught in a
thousand years." Bandy had organized a
posse of young farmers and followed the
three men. It was this posse the Larsen
boys joined between Rifle and New Cas
tle on the afternoon of June 9.
The robbers showed fight and shot at
the posse, nearly wounding one of th«
young men in the posse. Their fire was
returned and one of the robbers fell from
his horse, seeing which one of his com
panions shouted to him: "Tom. are you
hurt?" The wounded robber answered:
"Yes. I am all in. and I will end it right
here!" saying which he drew a revolver
and shot himself through the head.
Addresses found on the body of the
dead robber caused inquiries to be made
In Texas, where he was identified as Tap
Duncan, of Knickerbocker, Tex. Further
investigation indicated who his com
panions were, and it was for a time ac
cepted that the identification was reliable
until officials of Plnkerton's national de
tective agency at Chicago identified the
photograph of the dead robber as being
that of Harry Dogan. alias Kid Curry,
alias Bob Nevilles, alias Tom Jones, alias
Nelson, alias Whelan, the leader of the
West and Southwest gang of train rob
bers, who escaped from the county jail
at Knoxville.
Notwithstanding the Identification by
the Texas officials and others, William A.
Pinkerton sent Assistant Superintendent
Bpence to Knoxville with the photograph
of the dead man. and It was identified
there by a dozen persons as Harvey Lo
gan. Mr. Spence had previously identi
fied the picture. He had attended Lo
gan's trial and was with him more or
less for a period of two weeks before his
conviction, and he declared there could
be no mistake and that it waa Harvey
Logan beyond a doubt.
A short time before the Rio Grande
robbery the Union Pacific company, hav
ing got wind of the fact that the noted
outlaw Logan and his pals were again
at large and were likely to resume busi
ness in their old haunts, put on an ar
mored train running west from Laramie.
Wyo., in order to be prepared to meet
their wily foes. This train was equipped
with fighting equipment, and carried a
crew of well known gun fighter?, each an
f-xpiTt in his line and a terror to the
train robbers of the West.
In some* way Logan and his gang be
came Informed of the move of the Union
Pacific to forestall operations by them
along the road, and on this account it
i.s supposed they moved their base pouth
ward Into Colorado, to a country that
was also familiar to them through their
operations at a previous period as cattle
But despite the evidently positive iden
tification there has since been some doubt
in Wyoming that "Kid" Curry was real
ly the man killed. Granting that he was.
however, the original "Wild Bunch" is
not yet extinct. Harvey Longbaugh. who
was implicated in several of the early
robberies, and "Butch" Cassidy were
rather more fortunate than the other".
The detailed story Is that they got out
of the country and went abroad. If so.
the y may have come here. And It is con
sidered not impossible that the old Hole
in the Wall knows them again.
