the removal of the ollieors is toques- ted and
an Investigation of their acts in arresting

down near Kcstler's hall , onu of which hu

access to his | ) laeo except through Bill-

him. A quarrel uro-u and wasattracling
a crowd , when Ollicor Kennedy came up
and tohl Milliard to keep still. As soon
as Kennedy had gone Itullard grabbed a
big knife and chased his tenant into tlie
street , where thev were quanolling
when I came along and told liullard to
keep still. Ho rousted and 1 arrested
him for disturbing the peace and turned
him over to Mcmiile , while 1 went to
call the patrol wagon. Milliard was not
on his own piemi-.es at all , as the com
plaint to thi ! council alleges , but in the
slrqct.hile. 1 was after the patrol
wagon Itullard broke away from MeBrido
and tried to get into his house. .Mae and
I caught nim just at the door.
Wo were pulling him away
when his brother-in-law made a break lor
me and 1 had to let go of linlhml Mill
iard then tried to get away Irom Me-
Mnde and Mac hit him over the head.
There wore live orMX hundred people in
the .street at the time and the atlair might
have lesiilted in a riot if the ollicors had
not taken as prompt action as they did. "
"Tno complaint charges yon with hav
ing annulled Milliard. "
"That eliarao was made out of spite-
work by Mr. Kopp , who , yon know , has
marked socialise tendencies. When
llau , the anarchist , was licre we thought
Pacsons was in tlio city , and
I watched Kopp very closely lor
a few days thjnking that Parsons
would show up with him if he was in the
city. Kopp got on to the fact that I was
shadowing him and complained to the
marshal , and has been working ever .since
to have me bounced from the force. Ho
belongs to the class ot men who hale
everybody connected with tlio enforce
ment , of the law , and 1 consider his
charge against me purely ono of spite
work and 1 think the Hnniboldt assembly
K of L. has been imposed upon in being
led into making any such a charge. Mill
iard was not .seriously hurt and 1 do not
fear the result , of the action of the police
committee , to whom the matter was re
ferred , "

now are out at Kuho's ro.id house , as yon
know. Well , some timn ago , when they
were first forming here , they
innde their headquarters in n
well known Thirteenth street saloon.
The .proprietor , who is a first rate fellow
and a good citizen , objected to their
meeting or nven loafing around his place ,
and finally lircd the whole bunch of them.
Since that time the gang has been alter
that man's scalp. Ho receives threats of
destruction of his place and personal in

of letters and po tals which have
been sent to him. I s.iwone ot thorn yes-

"Shoitly after I came out heretic second
end time we vyere camped oh the very
creek where I live now - Snake river wo
called it then and there \vc had a lively
light with a part.v of about rUO ) Sioux ,
t heyennes and Ariipahoes. The Arnpa-
hoes didn't do much lighting , but they
urged the others on There wore twenty-
three in our party , and I can frivo you
the names ol every one of them. Old
Frappe was in command. The Indians
made about lorly charges on us , coming
up to within ten or htteen paces of us
every time Their object wan to draw
our iire , but old Frappe kept .shouting ,
'Don't shoot till you're sure. One at : i
time. " And so some ot us kept loaded all
the time. We made breastworks of 0115
bor.ica and hid behind * .slumps. Ora
Frappe was killed , and ho was the ugliest
looking dead man I ever saw , and 1 have
seen a good many. His face was all cov
ered with blood , and he had rotten front
tee h and a horrible grin. When he was
killed he never fell , but sat braced up
against the stump , a sight to behold.
Well , when the light was over tin ro were
about a hundred dead Injuns. There
were three of our parlv Killed ?

in the world , constantly holding himself
in the background. It is said that ho
was one of tlio giittiost of 1 lie defenders
of the camp in the above battle , und
phned no small pait in the success of the
day. He admitted killing four redskins
that ho was positive about.
"Were there any other noted men who
participated in that battJeV" inquired tha
"Noted , li 1 , " said the gilm old scent
abruptly. "I wasn't noted. I was nothing
ing bnt'a greenhorn. "
After the reporter had made profuse
apologies the old man was induced to
continue. "Well , alter that 1 went down
into Ari/ona. There was lots of beaver
in Ari/.ona in them days. I1 or the first
lifteen or twenty years I was out here I
never staid more than a week or so in a
place. I never settled down until ' 5 ! )
when I went to farming over here on
Clear Creek. I knew as much about
farming as the devil does about running
a saw-mill. I opened up a coal bank aud
brought in the lirsl coal that was over

The old man has participated in Indian
scriminage innumerable , but wan never
senoiinly wounded uxcopt by the gun
bin sting above referred to. He got all
ready to die then and.wan moceeding to

cheered him up with the leinark that he

"Do yon think I'd butter JIVL , " ho
"Why , certainly , " was the reply "You
