He said he had a notion to tell me his right name, but did not do so He abused and cursed me, and as I ws afraid of him I decided to quit him.

He wanted mo to co back with him and as I was afraid to refuse. I nnaiiy decided to do so. We went back to Casey ville, Ky., and remained there two or three weeks, loafing around, doing no work and playing cards. 1 do not remember when we left Caseyville, but we left there one week before I shipped my valise from Mount Vernon to Fort Worth. I shipped the valise some time in March, 1890. We left there for Sr. Louis in a rreignt tram and arrived there the next morning. We remained two or three days and stayed principally in lancy houses. We then went to Sedalia, where we got into trouble on account of Mitchell shooting at a brakeman because he put us off a tram. Ihey had us in jail for some time until we had laid out our fims. Three or four days after I got out I came to Fort Worth, aud have been here since. I have not seen Mitchell since that time. In Mis souri he went by the name of Bill West and I by the name of W. T. Smith. I was born in Rochester, Pa., and came to Texas in 1880. Mitchell is a railroadera brakeman. I first saw him iu Fort Worth. He is 5 fe-t 5 inches high, light hair, blue eyes, light complexion. When he v.$ had beer he gets red. He has a gundy mustache, is between 27 and 28 years old and weighs about 135 pounds. rie wore a big black hat on the night of the robbery, and I wore the s une kind of a hat. I threw awav the overcoat I wore on the night of the robbery in a creek. He told me to do so. He took me down to where he had the pistols hid in the woods near Denison. We did not touch the mail car. We only cut off oue car. It was about ten or fifteen minutes from the time we first stooped the rain until we left it. I have never been charged with any other offence.

He had not drank a drop in more than four years, but associating with the Battle Kow bums was too much for him, and a few hours after his arrival he was loaded up to the neck.
