JOHN HIXENBAUGH OF RATO
HERO OF DESPERATE BATTLE
"Well, If It Isn't John! Here, Mr.
, Constable, stop the court.' :
Justice C. J. Gavin couldn't wait un
til his order was obeyed, cava the
Denver Post. Swinging around In hi
chair, he rushed from the bench and
grabbed by the hand a big, good-natured
looking man, weighing fully 225
pounds, who had appeared In the
door-way of the dingy little justice
ehop in the basement of the court
"Don't let me break up your court,
ludg,", said the man in the doorway.
"You can break up any ' court I
hold at least until I've shaken hands
with you," retorted Justice , Gavin.
Then stepping back to thebench, the
court announced to those - in.,- the
room : .
: "A Game One In His Tlme.rt
"Ex-Sheriff John Hixenbaugh of Ra
ton, N. M., ladles and gentlemen. He's
one of the bravest men that ever
struck terror to the hearts of evil
era. He's a cattleman now,, when lie
isn't mixing In politics, but he was a
,rgame one in his time." , .
It needed no further explanation
about ex-Sheriff Hixenbaugh's game
ness, for there was evidence a-plenty
" In a pair, of crutches on which he
: supported himself, and In the ab
, sence of his right leg, which was shot
away in 83 in a ngnt in wnicu vuw
desperado who wounded him, and
, two of his bandit pals were killed.
The desperadoes who paid life pen
- altles for the wounding of the brave
sheriff were Dick Rogers, Red River
Tom and John Carey.
Fight With Desperadoes.
"The fight occurred at Springer,"
explained Mr. - Hixenbaugh, when
pressed to tell about how he lost his
leg. "At that time I was sheriff of
Colfax county, and Springer was the
! "The country had been terrorized
by a gang of bad men, and I caught
Johnny Dodge, leader of a bunch of
desperadoes. Dodge was in the Jail
adjoining the court house at Springer
and under heavy guard.
"One fine morning I got a tip that
ASAVIK mBVi --v
John Carey, three of Dodge's pals, in
tended releasing Urn. The tip came
pretty, straight, eo I hurriedly got to
gether a bunch of deputies and arm
ing them and a few of the prisoners
In the jail, we waited developments.
"We didn't have to wait long .for
pretty soon the three rode Into town,
and in less time than. It takes to tell
they were blazing away at us in the
jail and court house.,
"We lost no time, you can bet on
that We gave as good as we got In
fact, we gave more, for when the
battle was over, . there " were three
dead desperadoes and I carried1 a bul
let in my right knee." ,
( "And they didn't get the prisoner,"
broke In Justice Gavin. ' t
Killed the Three Outlaws.
"You bet" they didn't," rejoined ex
"What added to the excitement of
the day was the arrival of troops,"
he continued. "Jt, seems that on the
way to storm the jatt.'the three des
peradoes stopped at the office of the
district attorney. M. W. Mills held
that office then. With' drawn guns
they gave Mr. Mills thirty minutes to
"He Jumped on a horse and giving
the men the Impression that lie would
follow their orders, he rode thirty
miles to Colmor, as fast as his horse
could carry him. There lie telegraph
ed to Fort Union for troops, which
were sent 1;
"When they arrived the town was
put under martial law for . a few
hours. The trouble was , all over,
however, so the troops left soon af
; Three Amputations Required.
After order had been restored, ex
Sheriff, Hixenbaugh allowed himself
to be removed to a hospital, where
three different amputations' of the leg
were necessary' to eave his life.
Though a powerful factor in demo
cratic politics, ex-Sheriff Hixenbaugh
is at present devoting his time to a
large cattle ranch which he owns and
which i located at Red Lakes, N. M.
He recently gave ' up the position of
county assessor of Colfax county, af
ter service of ten years. .
Mr. Hixenbaugh is a New Mexico
pioneer, having migrated to that ter
ritory from Kansas twenty-seven
years ago, and has watched" the
growth of the territory from the
Justice Gavin spent many years In
New Mexico, and in. this way formed
the friendship of Mr. Hixenbaugh. It
is the intention of Mr. Hixenbaugh to
remain in Denver for a week. While
hre he will be the guest of Justice
Gavin at the latter's home, 1427 La
