Aichibal l Forbes, ihe British war
correspondent, who is now being fet
ed hi this country, placed himself in
Ihe front rank of celebrated journal
ists by liis famous ride throiigli the
Zulu country, carrying dispatches to
his journal, derailing the terrible
liughlor of the I'.i itish at Islaudula.
So highly was tins deed, or stroke of
enterprise, rated 11 hi.? own country,
1 hat them wa a strong1 movement
made lo secure for him 0 at prize, so
highlly riveted by all who light un
der Britain's banner, the Victoria
cross '-loi- valor."
Within the past few days, we re
ceived a call from an unpretending,
manly fellow a typical irouticr scout
who, in addition to other notable
deeds of daring, has accomplished
nearly or quite as perilous and plucky
a feat as Forbes.
In the Indian campaign of 1877,
(.'a plain Jack Crawford, the poel
cout attached to Go 1. urook'r army,
after leading the charge with Lieut.
Sehwatka at Slim Unties, carried the
Xew York 1 lei-aid's special despatch
es to Fort Laramie, a distance of three
hundred and llfty miles, in less" thar
three days and a half. .lack rode three
horses to deuMi on the irip, and out
stripped aM olher couriers, the war
department first learning the intelli
gence of ihe bal lie in I he Herald.
James ( ioiilun I'.ennett appreciated
the daring of his courier and besides
paying him a handsome eoiuplimeul
in the Herald, rewarded him with a
present of $-r)00, and allowed him
$'222 75 expenses, incurred on the
This is only one of many brilliant
strikes in journalism, for the Captain,
entering the Clark Hills in '75, was
the first white guide I o miners, and
for more than eighteen moni lis was
the only paid correspondent in the
Hills. His letters lo the Omaha Bee,
whoe special correspondent he was,
were plain, straight-forward and
truthful and contributed more to
wards bringing hundreds and thous
and s of men and million of capital
into that region, than all 01 her agents.
This fact is appreciated by many of
the best people in Ihe Lilis and by the
Union Pacific railway corporation,
who thus had opened up for their 1
line a rich ami productive region.
Returning from a campaign against
Yicloi 0, in which he' rode oyer 2,600
miles in Old and New Mexico, be
ing for days at a time in the saddle,
he lound urgent let ters demanding his
presence in Denver on business con
nected wllh the Placer Prospecting
Mining and Milling Co. Accepting
the posilion of chief of scouts for
(ien. Duel!, he promised (ien. Hatch
that he would remain hi Ihe field until
Yiclorio was kill.'d or the camnaign
ended. When the news eime that
Terrassa had kiiled the renegado
chief, Captain .lack whost: business
engagements daily became more
pressing, vns relieved at his own re
quest. Gen. luc!l gave him, without
any solicitation, a very complimentary
let let' in w hich he said:
"l take pleasure in saying that du
ring your entire service with me, you
'nave performed jour duty in a faith
ful, efficient and thorotigh-goingmaii-ner.
It is with regret that I lor-o the
service of so good a k:ouI; of a man
who so cheerful y risks his life and
undergoes the most severe hardships
in the discharge of his duty.''

could not do otherwise than speak of
his trusted scout in Mich strong terms
of commendation. Wo have been
periurtlod to read extracts from the
Caplai i's private diarj mid can real
ize what d inger lie has endured.
During his scouting expedition,
Jack, although he has before stum
bled upon untold millions, found
prospects 1 hat fairly dazzled him. He
has located many claims and a party
of experienced miners have been
a .vaiiiug his arrival in Denver for
several weeks, all equipped for a
thorough developemenl of this com
paritively unknown egion. As soon
as he can perfect his arrangements, hn
will lead out this party and subse
quently additions will be made.
A vastiouut of teritory will bo
explored and au soon as good loca
tions are made, the compauy, under
whose instructions 1 is acting will
furnish the necessary machinery lor
developing the mines. Assays will bo
made on the ipot go that m time will
he. lost, and iu short, no compauy so
thoroughly organized has ever set to
work in this or any other cotiutry.
The compauy was organized June
last and has a capital of $10,000,000. j
Senator Rice f Arkansas, is the pres- i
ident, and lion. T. .1. O'Donuell ofj

With such men as Ji.dgc Rico, I
Judge Mark Hanks of Chicago, and
other influential capitalists, with Cap
tain Jack as Chief in the field, we pre
dict great success for them, and un
told good for the territory. It is the
intent ion of the company, to issue a
monthly journal, which will contaiu
truthful accounts of the operations
of the company, being none other
than the official report made by Capt.
Crawford to his superiors. Jack's
unquestioned veracity, and the faith
fulness of his reports in other mining
prospecting toiirs,is sufficient guaran
tee of the value that will bo attached
to such a journal, which will
be looked for by thousands in the
east, anioug whom we predict a stam
pede rivaliug that to the Black Hills,
will bo started before mam mouths.
In short, we shall not be surprised nt
any exhibition of enterprise on the
part of the company, for Jack's name
has come to be regarded as synonym
ous with energy and enterprise find
he has never yet, had full sway.
In speaking of Capt. Jack Crawford
the writer knows whereof lie speaks,
for, from his connection with the
journal for whom the captain did
such excellent work in the Hills, he
is fully coiivcsmt wi'h the later life
of I he scout, (Hid has met many from
whom he has gathered much concern
ing his earlier years.
Crawford was eulisled in the 48th
Pa. regiment and was twice wounded
first at Spotsylvania, May 12, 1864,
and before Petorhburg, Apri 2. 1805,
Six days after Jack received his first
wound, his father died after having
beMi several times wounded.
After the war was over, and his
mother had died, he came west mía in
and look up his home on the prairie
and in the mountains. He was captain

Captfdu Jack is strictly a temperance

cants to pass his lips. Perhaps there
is no man on the '.rontier who has had

half the credit I receive for my ab-

nature is such tl al if I had no reason
for being a Ictotalar, I might be a
hard drinker. My p.oor father robbed
himself of ii s nianliwod ; deprived Ins
children of even Ihe rudiments of a
good education, and sent my mother
to an early grave, all through his ex
excessive use of drink. When my
mother was dying, she called me to
her bedside, and asked mn in the
presence of my brothers and sisters
and the minister fo promise her that
I would never, while God gave me
trength to resist, touch that that had

Vague rumors were current on the
streets last night that two of the
prisoners who escaped from the
early Monday morning had bem kill
ed, but be- oud this nothing could be
learned, a though cverv one was on
the qui vive for details of the affair.
Sherili Romero has not boon inact
ive since the jail break became known
lo him,l hough ho has worked with
great caution and sccresy. He des
patched six Mexicans with orders to
scour the country and bring back the
fugitives dead or alive. Thursday
uighl, two of the party came upon
four of the meu while lying beside a
camp fire. j iisi. outside of Chapirilo
where they had baited for the night.
One of the Mexicans snapped his
revolver at Mullen who was lying
nearest him but it misled fire, aud the
latter snatched at it but missed it.
The Mexican quickly wheeled about
firing into the crowd and this was
secouded by his companions, ihe fir
ing being kept, up till Allen and
Davidson were killed aud ouo of the
others wounded. Mulhn m ule good

started out on foot, for Las Vegas,
braving the raw winds in his shirt

safely locked up in jail and well
i-uarded. lie was about faiuUhcd,
and beniimlicd by the cold, but raid
that he thought the safest plaeo for
him is in his old quarters, as he did
not relish the thought of being mur

He declares that he has nothing lo
tear by standing trial on the chai go
for which he is accused, and only
look advantage of his liberty when it
was offered him without slopping to
consider what n.ks he was running,
lie does not know whether the man
who was wounded made his escape
or not, bul i positive that both Allen
and Davidson were killed.
Late in the afternoon one of the
Mexicans rode to town and related to
Sheriff Romero the particulars of the
encounter of Thursoay night, which
are substantially the same as related
