As U well known, there lia been
lor months n gang of horse thieves
along tin1 I'ccos, wliii have run t-fl
stock frtiin iiiiiny rauches ami nrr be
lieved to have committed other depre
dations. Tin1 headquarters of the
gaug are nt Ft. Sumner, ami their
market for stolen stock at White
Last week three oflho crowd, Dave
Uudabauirh. I J i 1 1 v Kidd and Billy
Wilson went to the Oaks to dispose
of sonic of their Mirplto stock and
while there sheriu" Kimball of Lincoln
county, who learned of their where
nbouts, cam? with a posse expecting
to carral them. They skipped out
before the sherill' reached the camp
and wee met by the sheriff's party hi
Coyote Springs, seven miles away.
They refused to surrender and showed
resistance, a sharp tight following.
The gang seemed to have the best of
the light and drove the attacking
parly into the Oaks, following thein
tip all the way.
In rhc struggle, ltndabaugh and
lvidd both had their horses shot from
under them.
It i-' reported from another source
that there were live in the parly, and
that the other two, Mose Deitrich, a
young and unsophisticated member of
the gang, was captured besides his
compauion, whose name we were un
able to learn.
This last report has not been con
lirmed, however, and it may bo but
idle rumor.
The IMneoTorjr and Denth of Yletorlo.
Whether or not Victorious silent for
ever, has for so Ion been a mooted
question that the following details of
a story from several privates of B,
company, 10th cavalry are certaiuly
interesting, because if true, and they
are related by men of known veracity
they accord to our troops more credit
than has generally been given them.
Victorious captured followers confess
to Gen. Terrasas, of the Mexican
army, that Viclorio would have forc
ed a pai-H ige through the Guadaloupe
Mountains at Ojo Caliente or Bosque
Bonito in Sepu mber or early in Oc
tober, before being compelled to sur
render, but he found the 10th calvary
companies at those points too vigilant
and Gen. Buell, w th his New Mexi
can troops, was north, while Terrasas
was west of him. lu other words, the
Autoricen troops cwrra!ed Viclorio
and made him an easy prey for '!er
rasas' overw In Imirg numbers, Alter
the Indians surrendered Terrasas shot
down ihir'V seven warriors beloit
any would confess as to Victorious
wheie ibeiit. lie lirnt called up leu,
who were silent when questioned, and
so on, until finally two, one a hall
bwd Mvixic.iu Apache, staled Vic
t oiio's last, whereabouts. Terrasas
proceeded in the direction indicated,
at which the squaws in camp groaned
terribly. The Mexican troops went
beyond the point iudicated, and in a
clump ot bushes louud a warrior mor
tally wounded, whose blankets, wild
skins and surroundings iudicated the
biv ouac of a chief. The Indians con
fessed that he-wag Vietono. Before
his capture Vktori'o had picked thirty-live
wf his choicest warriors .for
desperate work and ordered them to
capture ammunition the commodity
most needed. 1 'These' thirty-five,
armed with seveuteen-shootcrs
surprised the little band of twelve
soldiers at Ojo Caliente before day
break on October 2(Jth, killing five
and capturing the outfit ot nine. The
body of the five massacred were
slaked to the ground by means ol
wooden picket pins driven through
their backs.
Iatli for liberty.
YcMerdnv forenoon wiiüc one ol
the prisoners at the jail was engaged
at work about the entrance, he ein-p-aced
l he opportunity to make a dash
for liberty aud ran up the street in
the direct ion of Mendenhall's fctable.
The guards started after him but ihe
flying prisoner had a good start and
was soon lost sight of among the
buildings in tho rear of the First Na
tional Bank. The fellow, who went
by tho name ot Williams, has been iu
jail for a few days being imprisoned
for stealing or c.hangiug hats with an
other mm iu Locke & Lock wood's sa
loon. Williams was captured just at du-k
as he was going over Ziou Hill, by a
man who was sent out to round him
up by the sheriff. lie was taken hack
to his old quarters and heavily sitae
eled. Saturday night was a big lime for
drunks and fuhy hrce huinlro I nrr

Incorporation-! a Tw Year.
Las Vega', Nov. 29.
To the Jvlitornf thi GiuctlC.
Since the question of incorporation
lius become the 'popular topic ot
conversation, I beg leave to be heard
as nn Interested cit'zen.
In theGAZKTKKof the J7lh there
appeared nn article signed "Many L'iu
zeiis," wlrch views accords exactly
with inyowu. In the same issue also
appeared an article headed "Let us
Incorporate." Writer No. 2 inclines
to the opinion that by incorporation
he lives and property of our people
would be better pruected, but he
does not sav how, or by what mean
such protection would be secured.
Wr agree with him that streets would
be opened, roads constructed, parks
r.ttii..liiMK nhizas beautified, and
v. . . - " j i
ihat we would have water works, fire
engines, street railways, gas works,
etc. All of this is easily done by be
iug incorporated; issuing city bonds
to meet the ruinous expenses atul
then putting them on the market,
they ought to sell for 50cls on the
dolía?. Then levy a special tax on all
tec people, and thus the good work
rocs on. I think that writer No. 2 is
mitaken when ho charges that "Many
Citizens," manifested a spirit of dis
inrit r.r dÍKRPIIsion. he takes t llO
ground that the proper time for ii
corporation has not arrived. We are
in no condition at this time to bi bur
dened with an unnecessary tax. I also
nniicn nn excuse for a newspaper ar
tide in the Gazette of the 28th sign
ed "Anvil." The writer is of the
opinion that "Many Citizens" needs
soneonc to read him the incorporation
Well, 1 suppose he has read it, in
English aud is not willing to contrib
ute to its publication in any other
Now Mr. "Anvil'' is either new in
his efforts as a writcr,or his early ed
ucation has been sadly neglected
About one more article of the the
same kind, headed "Sledge Hammer
Blow" would be a stigma on a lunatic
asylum. So far as the question ol po
lice is concerned, I don't know but
what East Las Vegas would e
about as well off without any, for ii
that all the police force we
have had iu the past, did not -prevent
murdering and thieving What
then can we hope for in that respect
by incorporation? I will not burden
you longer. Let us not incorporate
for at least two years, when we will
be better able, financially.

Edito Gazette:
The last evening's Optic I notice bad
an t.rticle in relercuce lo Mr.J.B. Stout
who lias taken a chntract for the gov
ernment to m-d;e one million brick.
Ii brands ihe "Old Man" as a delault
er and says that he obi ained money
under false pretence, all ot which is
beyond a shadow of doubt, an unquali
fied falsehood from the word"go." Men
who pretend to run a first-class paper,
who are supposed to only publish
what is the truth; men whom no one
can prosecute and make a dollar out
of can, of course publish anything
But how a decent civilized communi
ty that has known the old man Stout
for years, can paironize such a misera
ble substitute lor a first-class paper is
beyond our comprehension. I am
also prepared to prove by some of our
most prominent merchants that ok'
man Stout is strictly honest, straight
and a hard working man and
has invnriabU paid what he owes

A regular grade fir streets and

walks should be built iu all parts of
Ihe town. A city government could
do this thing. It would add t real

advantage to the lal-or'ng man who
puts them down and would I hereby
