Bill Anderson's ' Career at the Head of His
Lawless Band.
Ilcvcngc of His Slstcr'fl
Dentil KllllriK Soldier * liy the
Scot ' The Terror oT n
Dozen Cauntlcu.
Atlanta Constitution : "Did you ever
hear ol Hill Anderson , of Missouri * "
This was the question of mi ox-confodcr-
ntc nmjor general , with whom 1 was not
long ago discussing the story that an at
tempt was inrulo during the war to bribe
fllosby. Ho continued : "Mo by was
never half such a terror in Virginia nt
Hill Anderson was in Missouri.
"When Iho war began , Anderson , like
about half thu people ot the slate , was for
the union. I have no doubt ho would
have gone inlo the union army but for
on event which changed the whole cur
rent of his life and transformed tlio na
ture of the man completely. He
lived In a county which was
nbout equally divided between thn
tinlonand tlioujtifuicmcy. In an ad
joining county , which was strong for the
union , resided his two sisters. Their
sympathies were entirely with the south ,
nnd they gave very open and injudicious
expression to them. Party feeling ran so
high in thn neighborhood that these two
women wore taken from home by some
union men and locked tip in a house by
themselves on the pretext that they might
give information to the confederates.
Whilu they were thus imprisoned the
house fell , killing one of them and crip
pling the oilier lor life. It is said that
"the pillars on which the house stood wore
sawed in two by MHIIO cowardly creature ,
who did not scruple at the murder of a
"When Anderson heard of this out
rage he almost went mad. As soon as
the Iirst burst of his fury was over hu de
termined to avenge the death of one sis
ter and tlio crippling of the other. Ho
organized a baud of eighty mun and
buuan his work of blood and destruction ,
iio aid not enlist in the confederate ser
vice , because ho wanted to bo free from
all orders and in his own way to work
out his burning desire for revenge. Ho
was about tuiny years old , but nearly
every onu of his men wus younger than
' he. Most of them were hoys from eigh
teen to twenty years of ago , sturdy boys
from thu farm , who could ride like .In
dians and shoot with deadly precision.
They had superb horses which they soon
trained to wonderful control. Their only
weapons were six-shooturs. Not a man in
Anderson's command , from Iirst to last ,
was over seen with any other weapon.
Every ono of them carried four revolvers ,
two in his belt and two at his saddle.
They were export pislol shots attho start ,
but they soon became so skilled that they
could shoot a man's eye out at twenty-
paces , and could kill a man lifty yards
away as they rode at full gallop.
"Their Iirst act was to kill a dozen men
who wore supposed to bo implicated in
the outrage on Anderson's sisters. They
began scouring the country , plundering
and burning the houses of union men
and spreading terror over half a dozen
counties. Band after band was organized
to meet ' them , but they all shared thu
same'fate , death and rout. Anderson
'and all his hoys knew every foot of the
the country perfectly , and when they
were too hard pressed by superior num
bers they would disband. Eanh man
would take care of himself , and next day
they would meet at sorao appointed
rendezvous to begin their deadly work
anew ,
"When they went into battjc each man
would take the reins of his perfectly
trained horse in his tuclh. He could
guldo the animal wherever ho chose
simply by the motion of his body. Then ,
with a six-shooter in each hand , they
would dash right into the enemy's ranks ,
firing right and left and making every
bullet toll. They could shoot with the
Joft hand as- well as the right , and in
many an engagement they killed more
than their number.
"Anderson was a swarthy little fellow
who did not weigh moro than 1 0 pounds.
Ho wore his raven hair down on his
shoulders , and in battle his little black
oj'cs glowed like lire. His ono thought
was to kill. He never took any prison
ers and not ono of his mun was ever cap
tured alive. They had raised the black
ilag , and it had boon raised againstthcm ,
and they fought with the furious courage
of desperation. Anderson never were a
uniform of any kind. Ho was usually at
tired in a dingy suit of jeans and were a
broad-brimmed , black wool hat with a
loug white feather in it. His men were
attired in black velvet coats , gorgeously
embroidered , jean breeches , which were
for ovor-stiiiled in their big boots , and
big felt hats. They all had long hair ,
and as they scoured the country were
the very picture of a gang of highway
men ,
"There is no telling how many mon
they killed. I should say n thousand
was a small estimate. Once , alter they
had been terrifying a county for several
days , Captain Johnson , of thu federal
Blate militia started after them witn a
force of two men. Johnson met a farmer
nnd asked him if ho knew where Ander
son was , JIu replied :
" Tos. lie is in a ravine about four
inllos from hero , but you had better leave
him alone. '
" 'How many men has ho ? '
" 'About eighty , 1 guess , you had bet
tor not fool with him , '
"Johnson misbed on , confident that ho
would soon annihilate Anderson's band
with his superior force , liuforo ho know
it ho was in an ambush , and within two
hours from the time ho met the fanner
ho was killed , and over two hundred of
his men lay dead about him. Only about
forty of the 250 escaped the merciless h'rti
from the revolvers of the Anderson men.
Anderson lo-jt only ton men , whose places
were soon supplied. The 200 union fiol-
diors thus slam were buried on thu spot ,
nnd congress erected a monument
above their 'gravo.
" ( jiineral ( iuitar , who had command of
the federal troops in that part of the
Htato , issued an order that no quarter
should bo given to Anderson or any of
his mon. A few days later Anderson
captured a train on which there were
twenty-three recruits for the union army ,
lloliled Ilium out on the wide of thu track ,
shot them deadand on thu breast of each
corpse pinned a piece of paper with these
words written on it :
' "Done by order of ( lOiieral ( iiiitar , '
"On the samu train was Congressman
Rollins , of Missouri , who was going to
Washington. Anderson went up to him
and said :
" 1 reckon we had bettor take you too.
I suppose you are a union mun1
"Rollins , wiio was a mock-looking fel-
iow. replied :
" 'No ' ; I am a minister of the gospel.
I have taken no part in the war at all. '
Anderson aaid hu wasn't killing preach
ers , and the congressman escaped ,
'M though it Is certain that if any man in
iv t the bloodthirsty crowd had recognized
% ' him ho would have been .shot iustr.tufy.
"Once Anderson and his men dashed
into Fiij'oltit and kurprisod 203 federal
troojH who were encamped there. They
ilrovo thu federals but of the trenches
which tuoy hud built around the court
hoiiHO. and finally forced them into thu
nourt house , They thun rode at full tilt
around tlio square four or five times , fir
inc into tlio windows of tlio-court house
Marks of their bullets arc still vNlbfo on

"Anderson never left Missouri during
the war. Onlv once or twice did ho light
witli tlio regular confederate army , and
then it was by accident. lie rc-fuscd to
obey orders from anybody , and followed
his own wild ami bloody career In his
own fearful way. At last he met ids
death after a hundred almost miraculous
escapes. His last batllo was fought
after Leo had surrendered and the news
had reached Missouri. Anderson knew
that he would not bo allowed to surren
der and that Iio would be hung if he was
taken alive. His plan was to escape with
Ins men into Texas and then make Ills
way to Mexico. When ho was trying to
get out of Missouri ho was one night Mir-
rounded by several hundred federal
militia. As ho led hit men in a desperate
isflort to break through the enemy's ranks
lie was shot in the neck , fell oll'liis horse ,
anil died in a few minutes. Not another
one of his band was killed. They shot
their way through , killing twenty-live or
thirty of the federals.
"Most of them did get to Texas , where
( hey disbanded and scattered mall direc
tions. This is , in brief , the bloody story
of Bill Anderson ami his band of bush
whackers. "

PiTTsnt'tto , Pa. , Jan. 29. [ Correspond
unco Globe Democrat. ] A man in whoso
name 1,000 patents imvo been issued ,
whoso inventions obtained for him a
title from a king , whoso fertile intellect
inade sale the use of natural gas such a
man is OeorcoVeslinghousc , jr. , tlio In
ventor of the famous railway air brake.
A conspicuous leader in society , a
friend to all charitable schemes hi sue
cessful application in I'ittsburg , a lady
whose kindly sympathy and rich gen
erosity impelled her to build a railway
in a foreign land that a Pittsburgor , sick
unto dying , might bo transported within
reach of skilled physicians such a lady
is Mrs. George Westingliouse.
It is but a decade and a half since Mr.
Wostinghoii&o became the manufacturer
of his own inventions. > few his mauu-
fae.lories are located on two continents ,
and they give employment to between
8,000 and -1,000 men. It was the popular
but mistaken idea of I'ittsburgers that
Mr. W8tinchonso ! was a poor _ boy who
has atlainc'l his high position after sur
mounting the disadvantages of poverty.
The fact is , Mr. Westingliouse is the son
of a Sehencctady ( N. V. ) manufacturer of
agricultural implements , who died about
one year ago , and whose works arc still
operated by George , jr. , and other sons
who inherited it.
The subject of this sketch graduated at
Cornell college , just previous to tlio
breaking out of the civil war , in which lie
served both on sea and land ; iirst as en
gineer of the United States war ship
Muskwetah. and afterwards as a member
of a Now York cavalry regiment. Hu
came lo Pittsburg shortly after hostilities
had ceased , having patencd a device to
replace derailed railway cars , and the
contract for manufacturing which lie
gave to the old steel lirm of Anderson &
Co. , whoso works were then located near
the Baltimore & Ohio railroad depot.
T1IK All ! IlltAKli.
About 1871 the WfStinghousoAir Brake
company was formed , from which time
dates Air. Westinghotise's career as a
millionaire manutaoturor , whose terri
tory widened as his inventions increased ,
until now at least 1,000 intents have been
in his name , their technical descriptions
lilling several huge volumes. Two years
after the erection of the brake works in
this city a branch was located in London
which now employs UOD men , and since
then branch works have been located at
Paris and in Germany. The latter two
employ ! iOO men , while the Pittsburg
works KIVO employment to half a thous
and. The cars on the only railway in
Japan are equipped with the Westinghouse -
house brake , and the motive power is
supulicd by Pittsburg locomotives built
at the works of II. K. Porter & Co.
Numerous instances are recorded
where locomotives have been crushed be-
vend usefulness in railway wrecks , kill
ing engineer or fireman , or both , yet the
passenger coaches supplied with the
brake have been stopped almost instantly ,
the passengers being saved from loss of
life or limb , and not harmed save by
fright. Air. Westinghouse lias frequently
been gratified by rcecivinc direct in
formation as to the ellicacy of bis inven
tion and its life-savint ; qualitiesr Very
recently lie was visited by a dignified and
well-dressed individual , name unknown ,
who related that he had jurst arrived
from the west , having with a hundred
others eseauea a horrible death on the
rocks of the dizzy canyons which abound
along the lines of the Denver & Rio
Grande railroad. The train , he said , had
broken in twain on thu edge of a 200-foot
precipice , and the frightened occupants
of tlio coaches were expecting to bo
hurled into an immediate eternity. The
air-brakes , however , were true to their
mission , and through them alone a ca-
tastrophc had been avoided. This was
an instance , like many others , where tlio
gratitude was gratuitous.
Following the organization of the Air
Brake company came the Union Switch
and Signal company , then the Westinghouse -
house Machine company , then the Phila
delphia Natural Gas company , and about
one year ago the Westiiighouse Electrio
Light company , which latter purchased
the English patents of Goulard & Gibbs.
In all these Mr. Westinghouse is tlio lead
ing and controlling spirit As far as the
number of employes is concerned the
Natural Gas company leads , the num
ber of names on its pay-rolls varying be
tween -100 and 2,000 men , the latter in Um
bummer or nipo-laying hoason.
Pittsburg is undermined by a veritable
network of natural gas pipes , the force
and velocity of the combustible being
not at all diminished by tlio distance
traversed from the wells , ranging from
ten to thirty miles ; yet through Mr.
Wostiugliouso's inventions the danger of
using the gas lias been reduced to a mini
mum , and natural gas explosions not
caused by carelessness are a rarity.
Early in the history of its introduction
those calamities were frequent , resulting
iu loss of life and great loss of property ,
Of Mr. WcstinghoiiFc's other enter
prises , thn Union Switch and Signal
company gives employment to 300 men ,
the machine company to 1W ) , and the
electric company to ! ! 00. Mr. Westing-
liouse lias traveled much. Ho spent iivo
years in Europe 18782introducing
his air-brake , and mingled freely with
kings and capitalists. In'honor of Mis
many inventions he win knighted by the
king of Belgium.
Mr. Westinghouso's homo life is re
markably pleasant. He married Miss
Marguerite Estollo Walker , of Now York
City. They have one child , a boy three
years of age. They reside at Ilomowpod
station , on the Pennsylvania railroadjust
outside of tlio city limits , in an elegant
residence called "Solitude , " truly a mis
nomer , for the hospitality of the host and
hostess is known far and wide. Mrs.
Westinghouso's Friday receptions , which
occur weekly , are attended by the most
select of Pittsburg ami Allegheny City
society ; and her dinner parties are char
acterized by an elegance usually credited
to royalty. On tliiiso occasions a solid
silver elephant , of unknown but certainly
great value , forms _ a center-piece for the
dining table , and is utilized as a recepta
cle for llowers. No matter bow brief the
time for preparations , those dinner par
lies arc most admirably conducted , the
elegance of the appointments being a
source of wonderment to the fortunate
It is related in society circles that some
time ago Mrs. Wc , while on a
visit to Nuw York City , met a wealthy
Englishman and his wife , with whom she
had a previous acquaintance , and Insisted
on their visiting her at her Pittsburg
homo , Although pressed with other en-
gagemcnts previously contracted , they
irhully consonlcd , but were compelled to
limit their sojourn in Pittsburg to one
day. It was a hasty trip to Pittsburg ,
and a hasty return. Mrs. WestinghoUi > u
was equal to tlio task , however , for sue
at once prepared her bill of fare und in
vitations , and telegraphed them to her
ohef and engraver , who promptly ex
ecuted her orders. Consequently , when
the English guests arrived they were as-

of a young Pittsburgor who was ill in a

fact of his residence in Pittsburg was
enough to excite her pity , and she de

built connecting the young mail's tempo
