SUNDAY, NUVKMRKI121, 1880.
Webb Talked With at Fort
Sumner When on the
Way to Texas.
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
"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
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
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
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
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
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
Clerical Tourists. .
Seven gentlemen, who have been in
attendance at the Congregational
Council, in St. Louis, were passengers
on the south bound train yesterday.
