JTho committee believed that the government nlocs lardy Justice to his memory In allow ing this claim. It simply relmbursca hla nvldow for property actually loot , with a very Hi I Kilt recognition for the gallant and heroin cervices rendered. "In all the annals of hcroUm there nro 1cvf that can exceed In gallantry , In horo- 1.1 in , In devotion , In self sacrifice and patriot r Isni the rldo made by John Phillips from S'ort Phil Kearney , In December , I860 , to IFort Laramle , carrying dispatches which KOVO the first Intelligence to the outalde ( world of the terrible massacre near the for- jner post , and which saved the lives of the pcoplo garrisoned there men , women and children by starting reinforcements to tholr relief On the 21st day of December 3860 , Fort Phil Kearney , commanded b > Colonel Henry n Carrlngton , under th nhadow of the Ulg Horn mountains , over 200 imllcs from the nearest telegraph line , was thci extreme outpost In that part of the northwest The nav-ago Sioux , under HcA Cloud , had been hovering In the vicinity of the post for some tlmo and had been lasl ccon In largo nuinboro on Tongue river , northeast of the fort.

When Home four miles from the fort thej \ wcro surrounded by the Indians In ovcr- ( whelming number * oml every man of the detachment was killed. The heroism of their struggle fcr llfo can never bo told , but the Icrrlblo slaughter which has since been ccn- fMsed bj the Indians of their braves and the fact that the troops were only killed after their ammunition wan ex hues ted , speaks elo quently of the horrible dnd bloody nature of the cnccinter. The triumphant end blood thirsty Slou c , conunatided by Hod Cloud aud outnumbering the garrison by twenty to one , had then surrounded and entirely invested Iho fort. An attack was hourly expected.

"In the jcars Immediately following hU heroic ride John Phillips was employed in _ . various capacities and engaged lu business la connection with government posts and he was continually hunted and harassed by the Slouv , who ahvajs looked upon him as the Juan who had wrested from their grasp the K.trrldou at Fort Phil Kearney.

A HOLY TERROR TO DRIVtRS tlln Wild rnpcrn nt Council MlnfTn , llpil OnKOnknloiiMt , Dei Molnc * unit Otltrr lovrn la parlor P of the Murray Hill hotel , re lates the New York Sun , a pirty of horso- mca were waiting one dij- not long ago for the Dotrd of Hovlow of the National Trotting association to end Its labors la executive se'slon when the conversation turned to the subject of vicious horses , "Tho worst trotter I ever drove , or ever saw , for that rruttcr. " s IJ Charley Thorap- eon , "was old Dill Abbott's bay stiul horse Wcstmont , from St. Joe , Mo. He was one of the grandest looking stallions In the \\orld-iblood "bay " , sixteen hinds high , looked like a big , strong thoroughbred , and car ried himself lllco a king. I was campaignIng - Ing a string of trotters out In Iowa and Missouri la the spring of 1SS3hcn Abbott and his horse turned up nt the Council Uluffo meeting.A \ fellow named Dunn was doing the driving , and "Scar-raced * Char ley took care of the horse. The outlU hap pened to ibc stabled right ncross the row from where I was , nnd I saw a good deal of the men. and horse for a few dnjs No body but Charley opened the door of Wcst- tnont's box , and whenever ho wilked the horse out of nn evening It was at the end of a long polo nnd chain , .like you sometimes see used to handle an ugly bull. The bojs from Missouri all said the stud was crazy and 1 guess ho was. nut Dunn started film when his race came on , and ho won It so cleverly without doing n wrong thing that 1 began to think the talk nbout his being a bad horse was all moonshine. "All of a sudden ono morning , though , Just ( before wo shipped away to the next town , there was a terrible uproar In Ab bott's row , and I Knew In a moment that Wcstmont had got somt'body ' at la t 1 heard a mail scream for help , nnd then something was slammed against the side of the stall with terrific lorpe After tint I coultl hear the stallion snorting and tearIng - Ing around In lib box like some wild beast , and I guessed tint 'Scar-Faced' Charley wcj done for. Uy the time I could grab up n pitchfork that v\as before the dnva of wooden hayforks nnd get over there , the man laj stretched out on his face near the door of the stall with the horse down on his knees trjlng to cat him up He bcl- lowoj like a made bull when the door swung open. I raised the fork like a haipoon , ami , taking good aim at his neck , let fly as bird as I could , expecting to eo the long oteel tinea go clear through him. nut they didn't. They went In maybe an inch , but tbat was long enough to take his attention aWaj from the man long enough so I could drag him out and e.hut the door. Kor the next half hour we could hear Westmont threshing around his stall like a caged tiger the old fork handle knocking against the boards every itlme ho turner ? a corner. The man turned out to be Dunn , the driver Charley hadn't turned up for some reason or other , and Dunn , it seems , \\ent In to feed the stud Ho waa terribly cut and brulsod Eibout the back ami shoulders whore the stalllcn got nt him with his teeth , and ono of Ills arms was broken , 'but ' he got' I well. A SUDDEN1 DISMOUNT. "Old man Ablott came to me over at Red Oak the next week and asked ire to drive \Vei3tmont In liU race there. Dunn , of course , be'og ' laid up. I had seen all I wonted 'o see of Westmont at the other town and told Abbott so , but he begged and begged , and zsiuic'd mo that the atudr was TPVCT k icwn to make trouble after being hitched. I re membered how well ho had acted In lib race at the Uluffa end flnaily consented to Orivo him on the track , provided IJI1Ind his help- eis would take charge of him between hcita "He acted so well for a while that It kind of threw me off my guard and I get carele a. After the second heat I Joitgcd back to the judges' stand and poised my hand for per- rnlsslo.i to demount , looking up and tiKlng mj OJES off the horse M I did 10 lint them somebody came alongside with nnoUicr horse stopping c oae \Veptmont QUICK a.3 n flash l.o let a foawl cut of him > ou could have heard a mile away , and itirtod for the other horse- with his moi'th wide open , at the tame time trjlng to Kick Icoss I went up pretty near aa high as that judges' stand at the first jolt , but as luck wou.d have it , ! ii-dcd partly on the sulkj seat when I oime down. Before lie could let fly again , I raised up cad Crashed him over the licid with the butt end of the big whip that I was carrying , which started him off up the stretch on a dead inn. You can bet he never stopped wltlT me until he was run down and tco tired to break looto again The moment ho oime to a standstill I called to Abbott to get his horse right wherehe stood , and I never sat beh'nd him. again. "Over at Oskaiocsa that fall Wcatmont turned on 'Scar-Paced' Charlej and scared him terribly. I happened to to with Abbott when the rubber came In town to throw up his Job Ho was the color of chalk. " 'You'll have to get somebody eloa to take care of that crrzy stud of yours Colonel Abbott , ' said Charicy. 'I want to quit. He coiro at me thU morning without ever liyln' his ears back or glv'n' a sign , and I'm going to quit. I can stand a mean horse to take care of , but lies plum crazy. ' " 'All right. Charley , ' sajs mil , 'jou Jtnt look after him a day or two until I can find another boy , nnd It'll be all right. ' onivnus wnitn SHY. ' "No. I've done quit now. I got through just as soon as I got nut at Wcstinont'8 stall I was nil done two hours go , ' and Charley never went Into Westmont's box again "I guess Abbott get tired trjlng to find driver , ! and rubbers for the stud , for he sold ' . : lm to Jim Togo not Icng after that , and Page brought him down cast , trading him off , I think , to partlnt in In Vermont \\Vstniont got n record of I' 24 at Dts Molnes In 18S1 His sire , Colonel West , was a Lad horse be fore him I am convinced ftrom what I have scon and heard that both of them ncro sub ject to fits of lusHiilty I never saw another stallion that wouldn't lay back his cars be fore ho attacked a man " "Wasn't Bill Abbott In Homo way related to Jesse James ? " Inquired the young driver from Indiana "Ho was an uncle of Jems James , " replied Thompson , "and it was In Bill AbbMt's house up ilicro on t'.io side hill near the Si. Joe track that Pord shot James In the back for the big rowaid LIUOB up by the governor of Mlstnirl Jnmrs lived thrro off nnd on for several jcwrs right at the tlnio when the detectives were looking for him. "Ho wont by the name of Howard , and ho used to nniM with old m\in AbtMttVi trotters over at the track now and then when tils repilar butlnruo was n little sMck. I suppose there worn more thin twenty persons In St. Joe who know pretty well tfcat Howard wes Jcso James , but It was n good subject to fay nothing about down there In those d ) . Ho alwnjs were a loose fitting IVInco Albert coat and kept It buttoned. How many gunx and knhcs ho ctrrled on the Instdo I don't know. "Ono tlmo when the old mnn was slek Howard proposed to V. ti. CMrk , whu was then training for Abbott at the SI. Joe track , Hint they go down the creek nnd try to get n. squirrel or two for t'.io old man. Clark carried a rifle and Howard took along a re volver , remarking that ho used to shoot pretty well with that wecnon when o boy They sighted game after n while la the top of a tall shollbirk hlrkcxy- . Clark blnzcd away with his rifle , but missed twlco In suc cession. Howard then told CKirk to go nround cti the other side of the tree nnd siaro the squirrel back to whcro lie could get a shot at him. As soon as Mr Squirrel came la sight Howard whipped out his gun and fired without seeming to take nlm nt nil , but the game drorvwl just the sime Clark once told mo that Howard picked off three squirrels In the simo way th-U ( "ay without mMsltii ; n shot. It wasn't until Pord shot Jnmcd Hint Clark knew ho had been out hunting with Jesse. THU OLD MAN'S 11MJFF. "Old man Abbott himself was something of nn expert with a gun , " continue * ! Thompson. "UvoryboJy knew It down through the Missouri souri circuit , nnd ho had things pretty much hla own way there , like Uob Kncehs up In town In eirly dnjs. I remember drlxlug nn old blind horse for him down that way a good many jears ago. This horse was ns game Es his owner , and would go through any open- In f that jou steered him Into , blind as ho was. The trouble was to keep him going Gtralght nnd avoid running over everbody In the race , for ho had a mouth llku n mule , and. of course , ho couldn't see. Well , > I drove him the best I could , but he llnnlly carried me Into some one , taking n spoke or two out of the other fellow's wheel The judges ruled mo out for foul driving , and aa I wanted to explain to tl'eni how the colli sion happened , I went up Into the staud after the heat. "I hadn't said ten words before the mnln guy broke In 'That will do , joung man , we have heird that storv toomanj tlnua before ' It riled mo n little bit to think thej wouldn't listen to mj explanation , and ns I Know If the/ didn't , tint 11111 Abbott owned the hoiso and was down at the foot of the stalls , I tiled again In a diplomatic sort of wny tn give an argument , nut they wouldn't have It.
