SUNDAY, NUVKMRKI121, 1880. WEBB. Webb Talked With at Fort Sumner When on the Way to Texas. Conflicting Stories Davis. About From M. Cosgrove, contractor of the Tucos "Star'' mail route from Yu gas to Fort Stanton arrived in the city ye.-ierday from the latter place. In conversation Willi a reporter ol the Gazette he staled that he had seen two ot the men who escaped Irom the jail in this city. "Did you sec Webb?" asked the reporter. "Ves! I travelled with him from Bell's ranche to Sumner." Pressing him further he rehi cd that when he took supper at Peli'o ranche, he s:it down with a man who followed alcng with them, taking breakfast at John Gerlnu dt's the next morning and they then going into Sumner to-gethcr, Mr. Cosgrove did not re ognizc the man, until an acquaintance in &umner informed him that the man who had been travelling; on horse back witli him was none other than Webb. When he made this discovery, h" talked with the man, and is satisfied that it was indeed llim. Webb related to him full particulars of l he jai1 break and protested that he effected his escape by mtaus of the piece of wire as was lirsl related. Ac cor .iug i o" Webb's story ho hung around new town the day following his escape aud in tho evening rode out of towti and struck the Pecos route, lie said that he was on his way lo Texas, within the borders of which state ho mu-t have arrived ere this as he soon afiermards disappear ed, Webb talked freely on the sub ject of the break aud the story as re lated to Mr. Cosgrove is substantially the same as first ven aud afterwards related by Mullen. He was clad in a good suit ot clothes, warm overcoat, wore two six shooters aud appeared to be well supplied with money. 18 DAVIS DEAD? While in Sumner, Mr. Cosgrove met a man, who told him that he saw the escaped prisoners shot near Chap trito, md finally, to make the story appear more plausible he told him that his name was George Davis. Davis, it will be reme nbered, was the mule thief, whom the Mexicans, who pursued the party, declared that they had fatally wounded. Davis' story is that he was out iu the timber "rustling" round fur wood, when he he rd the pursuing party come up aud when the filing commenced he -tarted to run and never looked behind but once and that to see Davidson aud Allen full. Still ho was not fleet enough to get out of harm's way and received a shot, though not of a very serious nature. lie told a good, straight-forward Mory and as his body was not found, and the most diligent search failed to disclose anything more than a trail, marked with blood from his wound, it may be considered pretty good evi dence that he did make good his es cape. A party came into town yesterday with the skeleton and head of a man, whom it is claimed i that of this same Davis. The remains were in terred yesterday, but it is more than likely that they are those of some oth er man, so we would respectfully sug gest that it any epitaph be written, no allusions be made to mule stealing for it is hardly a "fair shake" to bandy such terms indiscriminately. It may be that if the case is inves tigated another mystery may be solv- o I, for the Davis who was seen at Sumner seemed to have head enough and was of too substantial a build to mislead anyone into thinking that he was boneless. Vegas was full of soldiers yester day, companies II aud 1 of tho 4th cavalry coming in in the morning aud unloading their horses to feed them. The men are urder command of Capt. Parker and Lieut. Mason and left about 7 o'clock en route to Fort Hayes Ks , their old post. They have been fighting Victorio and for a long time had headquarters at Fort Cummiugs. The boys aro glad that they aro get ting out of 'he country. Company A of the samo cavalry will be up in a few days. This is the company that did the bulk of the fighting. --Uev. II. S. Wcsgato, the agent ot the Baptist Home Missionary Society h 8 retuned from his trip to tho southern country, Whoe Fmill Is II? "No mail to-day !" was the excla- matioii of surprise that greeted one as ' he walked aloug the street in the iate ; ishment deepened info something bordering on abject indignation and disgust as the time wore ou, the news spreading an i comment being passed upon it. It is bad enough to endure the disadvantages of a railway block ade, aud to have the trains from six to sixteen hours late, if they come iu at all. But fo have the traius come in, one of them on time, and then not carry the mail, it is time that t lie mat ter was looked into. We have taken considerable pains to inquire into the matter, and have interviewed every one iu town likely to throw any light on the subject. As near as can be learned the explanation of the affair is about ; his. the irregularities in the running time of the trains has caused the few railway postal clerks assigned to duly on the line of the A. T. & t . F. It. I to lose sleep and iu fact go without sleep for several days at a time. The past two weeks have been especially trying to the agents, having been suowed up for two days at a time wiih barely enough food to subsist it pou, and, if the legends afloat arc true, were compelled to swear to keep warm. If there had been a full corps of postal clerks, as there should be, then sonic arrangement could have been made for providing for a relay, giving some ol the force time to recu pérale, aud not forcing men who had been hard pressed and inc.mvcnicii" ed, as we have staled, to keep on their regular runs. The train from the south came in without any mail agent ou hoard, al though one went down on Friday's train. This man was a Mexican, wno spent a year in the Santa Fe office and has only been on a few mouths, but no matter how competent he is, In cannot he expected to stand every thing. As we have said, no mail came iu from the south aud as there was no oueon bojrd to take charge of the Vegas mail it remained behind. By the accident at. Cimarron, Ks., men lion of which was made in our des patches ot vesterdav, ttie postal car was badly smashed up and the agent refused to come on if he could not have his own car. He carried his in dependence still farther and would not even transfer the mail under hi charge This is the explanation of the non-arrival of the mai, and just how far the agent was justified in his course, we are unable to say, but at any rae, the tault can be traced to headquarters. Clerical Tourists. . Seven gentlemen, who have been in attendance at the Congregational Council, in St. Louis, were passengers on the south bound train yesterday. Thev will speud the Sabbath iu Santa Fe, and then continue on to the end of the track. Their trip is purely a pleas ure trip and they will visit San Mar cial, Albuquerque, Socorro, the old I'ecos Church, and other points of in tereston or near the line of the road ''he party consisted of Mr. Kineaid, a prominent, business man of St. Louis ; Uev. Dr. 1?. I?. Howard, ol Boston one of t he editors of the Advance, the well kuowu religious journal ; Uev. Iíob ri West of St. Louis; Rev, C. It. Porter of Massachusetts: and Kev. Mr. Bo hr r Is. Prof. Ashley met the parly by ap pointment, and during the brief wait had a conversation with them concern ing the erection of an Academy build ing. They all promised to assist him so far .is they could and oficrcd consi derable encouragement. It is expected that the Pcv.Mr.Wesi will spend at least a day in Las Vegas. the early part of the week when the plans for the erection of the building will be talked up and some arrange meat made for carrying out the pro ject.
