"Say , Its 1'hll Maguiro. Don't you rccoj-
nlzo Unit red hair mid ttioia tooth , I would
know him nnywhuro , oven if ho lias boon
dead for thirty years. "
Several men gathered about a human
skeleton at the north end of Falrvlow
cemetery , yesterday morning , nnd the grue
some object at their foot wa the subject of
their remarks. It had Just been plowed out
of tha ciirtli by workmen engaged In grading
down the new burial lot of the G. A. H , and
several mambcrg of the latter organization
were present. The snot was Just north of the
cemetery proper , nnd was , until recently ,
laid out In city lots.
Of course , thoru wns much speculation
when the skeleton was turned out as to how
t came thcro , and who was once the solo
iroprlctor of that pllo of human bones.
Constable Thusloy was among the llrst to
rccognlro them , and it wat ho who gave ut'
.cnuico to the words quoted ubovo.
It was not long until u Brat : representative
was on the spot , and after a duo
inspection of the long hidden rollcs , begun
the usual reportorlal Investigation.
"Who was Phil. Magulre. any way I"
"Oh , ho passed in his checks before you
appeared on the scene of action , but thuro
are quito o number In the city who wllll ro-
muinbcr him. Ho bad a llttlo trouble with
the vigilantes ono night , and the next morn
ing ho was found hanging to u trco a few
rods northwest of boro. I forgot Just when
It was , but It must have bcuu about 1W/J.
Nobody over know where ho was buried ,
but this has evidently bcea his resting pluco
for the past thirty years , for thcro Is no
question , but that these are his bonos. "
"Who was the coroner who hold the In-
qutstl"
"Squire Ulggs acted In that capacity. He
was Justice of the pcaco at the time , and
illlcil the place of ttio coroner , who was out
of town. " '
Squlro Biggs was then sought by the ro-
rjortur , and astcud regarding the circum
stances of the lynching of Magulro.
"Yes , I remember about it , nnd why
shouldn't I ? I tiL'ld the oody whllo tlioy un
tied the knot to lot him down. Perry Smith
Svns the coroner , but ho happened to bo away
ut the tlmo , and I took his placo.
A bi ? crowd went out to see the body , as it
hung swhigiui ; in the Urcczc , nnd It was a
tough looking sight. Tlio vigllatos loft a
sign pinned to his breast , on which was writ
ten , "Hung for all kinds of rascalities. "
They took tilm out of the old 1'ucltlo house ,
nnd my son anu ncphow stood on this very
corner , ( Pearl mid liroadway ) ana saw them
go away with him. Thorc woroabouttwonty-
Jlvo of them , and the boys recognized everyone
ono of them , as they only hud their faces
covered. Hut If you want to find out all
about it you must see II. II. field , who was
well acquainted with Mugulra's curcer. and
can glvoyou some Interesting pointers. "
Following these Instructions , tuo scribe
then called on Mr. Field , the veteran under
taker.
' Let rno see , " remarked that gentleman
reflectively , when the subject was bro.ichcd
to him. "Alngiiiro was strung up in 1800 ,
Just about this tlmo of the year. I bollcvo
in was In the month of October
I know something about it because I buried
him. Maguire was nn all-around crook and
generally speaking a bad man who put in
most of his tlmo hanging around the gamb
ling houses. Ho had hold up tsavcral par
ties , knocked down others , and had the repu
tation of being u thiot and very tough citi
zen. Finally bo was found a few miles south
of the city driving a pair of mules , which it
was supposed he hud stolen. Anywu ? , ho
was brought to tbo city and as there was no
Jail ho was put in a room ut tlio Paclilu
house. That night ho wns taken out and
hung to a trco around iho point of Uoss' hill.
The tree still stands there , a largo walnut ,
as largo as u man's" body , and the limb over
which the rope was thrown is also there. It
was not then more than an inch in diameter ,
and it has crown very llttlo since. Die body
was allowed to bung thcro until the after
noon of the second day following , when it
was taken down and I buried
it where it was unearthed to-day.
There wns a report circulated shortly after
wards that tbo doctors had exhumed it , ana
this wus generally believed to bo tbo case ,
but ono day about twelve years later I hud
been to a point above thcro , nnd on my re
turn , having a spade witu mo , I sunk it in
there nnd the bones were still there. There
were sovorul umusini ; circumstances con
nected with the inquest. Tlio dead man's
pockets contained a knife , a brass modal ,
three thimbles such as were then \ised for
working the shell guino anu a $1 bill. Tha
jurors were John B. Luwis , John Hammer
and myself. It wus suggested that the three
Jurors and the coroner ulay a four-handed
game of sovcn-up for ttio $1. Some
of thorn demurred , and a division bv
drawing cuts was finally agreed upon ,
The coroner got tbe dollar , Lewis the medal ,
Hammer the thimbles uud I the knife. That
was the amount of coroner's Jurors foes In
these days. Magulra was afloat thirty-two
years of ago , and his taking off wus a salu
tary lesson to a number of other tougha who
infested tno city about that timo. The
vigilantes did some good work and no ouo
could help but appreciate It , although they
might rczrot the necessity for it. "
The skull exhumed yesterday was covered
on top with a heovjr giowthof reddish hair ,
which wus ono of the features recognized by
the old residents. Some of the smaller
bones were softened and partially decayed ,
but tha Imlr had apparently undergone no
change. The body had ocnn buried but two
nnd a half feet below ttio surface , but had
not been molested before In the thirty years
that It bad rested there. The find caused
quite a stir among the older settlers , and a
general indulgence in reminiscences of early
'
days was the result on street corners and a't
the various lounging places.

To the Editor of TUB BEE : Will you give
me a short space In your paper to toll the
people how the board of equalization par-
formed their duties as a board I After con
suming about six weeks meeting each night ,
they found themselves with tholr worn but
llttlo over half dono. After that tlmo they
divided the work , each man taking a portion
of It. Each put In a half or'wholo day , as ho
could spare the tlmo , ouch alternately taking
his turn with the cleric , thus constituting a
board of equalization. Thin Is tbo course
they pursued until tbo last dav before the
law required them to band ever the books to
tbo county. This self-constituted board ,
with the clerk , equalized In the following miin-
nor : The clerk would road the name of the
person assessed , and tbe ono alderman , on
the bo'ard , would stand up by the city map ,
hang on the wall and hunt out ; the lot. Then
the solitary board would say to the clerk :
"That's a mlgtity good lot. Raise him 1100. "
Then another name would bo called by tbo
clerk , and the same process gene through ,
only the board would say : "Well , that's a
pity , good follow , and it's pretty high for
that lot. Knock off 8100. " Than each
night when the legal board was present , the
minutes of the day board wore read and ap
proved , A majority of the cases were thus
acted upon. It was really the dictum 'of u
single member. Now Is not this a good deal
of u furcol If assessments can bo mudo
thus easily , would It not bo well to have only
ono member in the board , and thus save
expense and troublo. Ho might bo charged
with bonontting his friends and oppressing
others , but what of that ? . CITIZEN.

[ Spoclnl to Tins BKB. ] The Stoponson
coaching piuty urrlvod hero to-day on
It3 return from tlio Yellowstone Na
tional park. The journey ncrdaa the
mountains In the Concord stages was
most enjoyable and was a welcome
change from the hot lava dust of the
park. In returning the party spread
their camp on the brow of a beautiful
mountain overlooking the Madison val
ley. Amidst the tall green foliage Is
a log cabin. In the log cabin was
an elderly lady hearing every mark of
refinement. She had hut recently nr-
arrived from Fremont , O. , and
her only companion was an
invalid son. The Interior of
the cabin was tastefully arranged , and
on the mantle piece was a portrait of
the late Mrs. Hayes. The lady In ques
tion stated that her name was Dovollo
and that until recently , she resided at
Fremont , in a cottage adjoining the
liavos residence.
From this point the party journeyed
on to i. midway station situated on the
north hank of the Snake river. Abo'ut
the proprietors of the inn nt this place
hangs a romance.
The hotel , which Is a structure built
of logs and canvas , is kout by two
strapgo characters. Their names are
Charley Huostls and Thomas O'Don-
nell. Both were soldiers and took part
in some of the most desperate engage
ments of the civil war. When the
fate of the nation was sus
pended in the balance Charley
Huostia was a .young nnd sturdy
farmer living in southern Illinois.
Ho joined the ono hundred and second
end Illinois volunteers and wont to the
front , Ho was in the same brigade
with President Harrison and bore arms
in support of the union as a member of
the army of the Cumberland. Whiloi
under the command of .General Thomas
ho and the president , marched aide by
side , and at night , when not on picket
duty , occupied the same couch together.
Ho stated. that Harrison was nervously
inclined .upon hearing the roar of the
rebel musketry , but that when com
manded to tire or charge hoought like
a tiger.
In Thomas O'Donnoll is found the
remnants of an , ox-robol soldier.
Ho entered the rebel ranks
a private but soon rose to the rank of
captain. His childhood homo is inOlcl
Virginia and ho bears scars from bullets
that were dispatched in the interests of
the government. But the peculiar part
of the matter is that O'Donnoll was
taken prisoner by Huestis at Chatta
nooga. both being , on skirmish duty.
After the war O'Donnolllocaterd in the
oil regions of Pennsylvania.r Ho ac
quired considorablp wealtlrmid was for
two terms a member of the Pennsylvania.
legislature. Fiftojn years ago ho met
Huestis again not as aisoldier hut as.a .
private citizen. The two decided to
emigrate westward and they cast their
lots' on the banUs pf' ' the Snake rive
where they now livo.
As the journey through the lofty
peaks and gorges was continued , nature
seemed to have exerted herself in preparing -
paring attractions for the eyes of the
tourists. High up above the mountain
pass the pine tree , stern and stately ,
spreads out its branches , while thousands
sandsof feet below the rill trickled ,
mingling its murmur with the scream
of the eagle and the song ol the meadow
larks , the masses of ono molten rock
contrasted with the foliage of the val
leys. So beautiful are the surroundings
contiguous to the park route leading out
from the line of the Union Pacific , that
words are inadequate to describe them.
En route back from the park our party
witnessed a sight that was both rare
and beautiful. It was a mountain fire.
A mountain fire seldom occurs , but
when it takes place it presents a scone
of surpassing beauty nnd gran
deur. Wo were disposing of an
elegant luncheon about nightfall
when the skies began to brighten in
the distance , and soon the silvery lining
of the clouds that cnshrowdod the
mountain peaks assumed a golden hue
A few momo/its later and the moun.
tains , which were about three miles
away , appeared like a wilderness of
flames.
"It will bo all day with us if that fire
gets down on this meadow , " remarked
a pioneer member of the party. But
fortunately the flames were con tinea to
the mountain tops , and all danger from
that source was soon over. Our next
journey will land the party on the ta
ble rocks of the famous Shoshono.
AFRAID OF MUMFORD'S SON.
Wliy Ben Butler Shuns | tlio City ly tlio
Knw.
"Did you over take note of the fact that
the great and only Benjamin F. Butler
when ho comes to Kansas City remains
in his palatial Pullman car , near the
union depot , and docs not go to a hotel
like other distinguished visitors , " asked
u gentleman of the Kansas City Jour
nal the other day. Upon receiving a
negative response the gentleman re
lated the following story in explanation
of his question : "As every ono ac
quainted with the history of the late
civil war knows , Butler wns u. major-
go n oral on the union side in the war.
The Hoot under 'Admiral Farragut
passed Forts Jackson and St. Phillip ,
which are below Now'Orleans ' , on April
25,1862. General Butler , who was in
command of the land-forces cooperating
ting with Admiral Farragut , entered
the city six days . later. General
Butler became great incensed because
some of the people of Now Orleans
manifested a disposition to treat him
self and his Boldicirs with discourtesy
and ho issued ft\ | \ order forbidding
*
women to bo upon the streets after a
certain hour ut night without a written
permit from him , upon pain of being
arrested uud treated as members of the
demi-monde. ' ;
No sooner had the federal troopa
possession of Mio city , which was sur
rendered to General Butler by the
mayor , than the confederate flags were
hauled down from the Hug poles on all
the public and private buildings nnd
the stars and stripes run up in their
pluco. Dr. "William Mumfordwho sub
sequently claimed jn justification of his
act that no wns not aware at the time
that the city had capitulated , seeing u
union ling floating over the mint , wont
upon the roof of that building and
pulled it down. Ho had no sooner done
so than he was placed under arrest and
taken into the presence of General But
ler , who caused him to bo tried by acourt
which the general appointed. Dr. Mum-
ford was convicted , and in n few days
after his arrest , ho was. taken out of
prison nud hung In accordance with the
finding of the military court. The or
der , which , I believe , is known as No.
88 of the Butler series , and the execu
tion of Dr. Muttlford Naturally caused
great indignation mrainst him , not only
in Now Orleans , hut throughout the
south * nnd in certain sections oi the
north whcro southern sympathizers
were plontifnl.
"Dr. Mumtord loft n widow nnd son ,
who was nt the tlmo of his death about
twelve or fourteen years of ngo. The
son's name Is , I hollovo , William B.
Mumford. Ho used to keep u drug
store on Fourth , near Walnut street , in
this city. As was hut natural , young
Mumford grow up with a strong hatred
of General Butler , upon whom ho laid
the solo blame of his father's untimely
taking off. The young man proclaimed
on several occasions since the war that
it over ho met General Butler face to
face ho would kill him. About eight
years ago ho procured n couple of re
volvers and Informed some of his in-
tlmato friends that ho intended to take
the next train for Boston * and snuff out
General Butlor'a cnndlo of existence. It
wits with the utmost dilllculty that the
young man's mother and other relatives
and his friends in this city induced him
to abandon the trip. Tn doing so ho
said ho would not again attempt to seek
General Butler , but If that Individual
over appeared upon the streets of Kan
sas City ho would certainly kill him.
"Somo ono acquainted with General
Butler , who was anxious lo prevent him
from being taken off in a tragical man
ner , must have informed him of young
Mumford's throats , for , although ho has
several hundred thousand dollars in
vested in real estate and buildings in
Kansas City , and comes hero once or
twice a year , ho cannot bo induced to
leave his private car , and ho gonnrally
makes his stay very short , Ho romaind
no longer than Is necessary for him to
BOO the men who have charge of his
business and property interests hero. I
have known young Mumford several
years , and have discussed the hanging
of his father by General Butter's orders
with him , and I have heard him
threaten to shoot Butler on sight if ho
dared put his foot upon the soil of Kan
sas City. Knowing as much as I do
about the matter I have kept myself informed
formedas to General Butler's visits
hero , and I have noticed that General
Butler , although n bravo warrior , has
never taken his lifo In his hands by
walking the streets of Kansas City.
I'ut Opium In the Cofllti.
An extraordinary case of smuggling
is reported from Sourabaya , in Java. A
Chinese passenger having died on board
a junk which was anchored in the road
stead , the health oflicorof the port wont
off , nnd , after viewing the body , gave
the necessary permit for burial. The
master of the junk the came on shore
and ordered a largo coflln of the usual
Chinese kind. During the early hours
of the morning thecrowwith the coffin ,
landed , and the funeral procession
passed along the streets. After the
funeral the party _ went back to the junk ,
which immediately put out to sea. In
the mlddile of 'the day some natives
found an empty collln in the middle of
the road close by the Chinese cemetery ,
which not only smelt strongly of opium ,
but also had small particles of the drug
adhering to its sides. The custom
house authorities found the maker of
the collln , who identified it as the ono
supplied to the master of the junk , nud
the dead body of the Chinamen was
washed ashore soon afterward , so that it
was clear that ho had boon thrown qver-
board , and the burial permit used to
smuggle on shore a largo coflln full of
opium.
w. A Oliuir in Bottle.
'Sirs. F. B. Mappof Millcdgoviltohas
something of a curiosity intho shane of
n chair made in a bottle. The bottle is
n small square vial with a very small
nock , and holds about twelve ounces.
The minature chair was made by a
small negro convict with a pockctknifo ,
and was put together , piece at a time ,
in the bottle by the use of a wire. The
logs occupy each corner of the bottle ,
and every part , rounds , cross pieces in
the back , etc.arc firmly'Httod together
adjusted as neaily as the works in a
clock.
