THOMAS 3. SMITH, .
MarahAl of 'Abilene. 1R70.
Died a Martyr to Duty, Nov, t, 170.
A Fenrless Hero In Frontier Day
Who. In Cowooy CTiaos,
Established the Supremacy of Law.
Abilene l an old cattle trail town. In
the later '80s It waa the end of the Union
Fnclflo track then the Kaneaa Pacific. It
waa merely a atock yard at first, but later
a the end of the trail that led up from the
ranchee of Texas, It became a wild and no
torious town. "Joe" McCoy, a young- 1111
Tiolsan. waa the first to give It Ita glory.
He took a horse find rode off Into the south
and Intercepted a herd of cattle bound for
California and Induced the owners to bring
tfctm there. Others followed, and soon the
whole Texas trade waa coming over the
Old Chlsholm . trail . to the new shipping
point. A sample train of stock was taken
to Chicago, decorated with bunting and ac
companied by a brass band, and then the
rush came In earnest. About 90,000 cattle
rnme In WSl; this grew to 300,000 In 1868, and
In 1869 nearly 600,000 head came trudging up
out of the south to be yarded and taken by
railroad to eastern cities. It was In 1M8-M
that the town began to feel the effects of
the new business that had come to It. The
"bottoms" were covered with saloons and
dance halls; murders were common and
drunken cowboys riding up and down the
streets shooting their revolvers Into the
windows terrorised the peaceable portion of
tho community. Thirty-two saloons had
licenses from' the city council.
Start for Reform.
The business Interests of the town were
suffering, and finally the city administra
tion took up the matter and considered
ways and mesne. T. C. Henry was mayor
and A. A. Hurd, now at ths head of the
western law depsrtment of the Atchison,
Topeka sV Santa Fa Railroad company,
was city attorney. . They sent to St. LOul
and asked the chief of police to tend them
two Of his beat policemen.
The officers came and were invested with
all powers for the enforcement Of the law.
They arrived on the afternoon train big,
burly fellows, In the full glory of their blue
They went to the mayor for consultation
and then walked through the bad portion
of the town. The further they went the
more frightened they became. They re
turned to the mayor. '
"How do you expect us to keep ordfr
when every man carries a gun?" they
"Make them take off their guns."
"But there are a hundred of them and
only two of us. They laughed at us as we
Went down the street We don't want the
On the night train they returned to St.
Iuls, and the town was worse than ever.
The wlckednees went on twenty-four hours
tn the , day and the cowboys boasted that
they owned the community.
It was In the midst of this reign of terror
that the mayor sent for Tom Smith. No
officer waa ever asked to undertake a
larger Job than he when he waa requested
to control the whole wayward element of
the place single-handed.
Smith "was a native of New Tork and
flurlng tho civil war was on the police
force of New York City. For some reason
he never told why he waa dismissed and
he drifted west to White Fine, Nev., where
he remained for a year during the silver
When the Union Paclflo was being built
through Wyoming he was marshal of Bear
Ttlver, Green River and Cortnne. . At Bear
River during a riot he was severely
wounded, getting a load of buckshot In
various portions of his body.
This kept him In bed for several months
and then he went to Fort Wallace and Kit
Carson., on the main lino of the Kanass
Pacific. Iters he was marshal and was
employed by the railroad company to keep
ordsr. - ' '
Threats that Failed.
' When In Hays . City, one of tho tough
frontier towns, he saved the life of Judge
Canfleld, one of the beat known of the die.
' trlct court judges of early days. Canfleld
.; was presiding over court In the town and
had a famoua case in which number of
cattlemen were interested. They threat
ened to kill him If he decided against them,
as Canfleld had about made up hla mind
' . He waa about to call out the troops from
the fort to protect htm when soma one
mentioned Smith. Smith was sent for.
and stood around town and in the court
room for two daya. When the decision
was rendered against them the cattlemen
had taken the hint and did not dare an
assault on the court.
One, more bold than the rest, attempted
' to climb up to the rear of the court room
. where he could get a shot through the wln
; dow and then make a retreat to his pony,
' bat he was seen by the marshal, who sent
shot after him that laid him up for
While Smith waa coming to this city the
officers built a calaboose, but the cowboys
rased It to the ground. Then they rebuilt
It, and under atrong guard put a negro

Smith looked over the town for a dsy
before he took the Job, then In the evening
strolled Into the mayor's office and said
hs guessed he would take the office. He
was asked for his plan of operations and
Said he had none except that he thought
he would stop the practice of carrying
"You can't do that," declared the mayor.
"They have been carrying firearms since
the beginning of the town."
"But It In against the ordinance."
"Yes, of Course It Is."
"Then I will stop their carrying fire
arms," said Srclth, quietly. "You see, we
could stand guns or whisky, but we can't
stand both. There ain't no chance to
stop the whisky, and we might aa well
Stop the guns. Then there will be less
Smith Begins Business.
That night new copies of the anti-gun
ordinance were posted around the town,
and the next'morntng Bmlth took the oath
of office. Long before he appeared on the
street the gang wss ready for business,
and many boasted that the man did not
live who could make them give up their
Bmlth was about five feet eleven Inches
high, deep chested and With sinews of steel.
He did not seem to be so powerful aa he
He ate a hearty breakfast and strolled
down the street. The first person he met
was Hank Hawkins, a huge cattle puncher
from southern Texaa, who had made him
self obnoxious to the town. As the new
marshal camo in sight Hawkins stepped
out and asked:
"Bo you're, the man who has come to
run the town."
"No," replied Smith, "but I have been
hired to keep order, and I am going to try
"That Is one of the laws, and I will
have to trouble you for the guns right
"I won't give them up to any live man."
"I ain't lookln' for trouble," said the
marshal, his steel gray eves flashing, "but
"you will obey the ordinance."
Like a flash he leaped forward and
landed a terrific blow on the forehead of
the big Hawkins, who promptly measured
Ms length on the sidewalk. In the twink
ltng of an eye Smith was on top of him
with the guns In his hands.
"I will give you ten seconds to start
for the city limits," was the ruling.
After a glance at the determined face of
the marshal the cowboy lit out for the
high grass. Smith leisurely pocketed the
guns and sauntered down the street as If
he had nothing to do.
J Example of Serve.
Presently he came to a aalobn where a
crowd of cowboys were drinking. To them
Smith made a little speech:
"I am going to have order In this town,
and I want every man to obey," he said.
"If hs don't obey I will make him. I shall
treat every one fairly. You must all give
up your guns and they will be taken to
the mayor's office, where you can And
tbem when you want to leave town."
For a moment there waa silence. Then
a faro dealer, a leader among the sports,
"That Is the nerviest act I ever saw.
Here, Mr. Marshal, Is my gun."
He handed It to Smith, and all the others
followed his example. They were glad of
a chance to get out of the predicament at
the least possible loss of self-respect.
"I can'f carry them all," laughed Smith,
and bo a compromise was proposed.
The saloon keepers were to be the cus
todians of the weapons, and the cowboys
were to leave them off during their stay In
the town. They did It. too, and from that
time until Smith met death not a gun waa
carried In this city with the knowledge
of the marshal.
! Smith was killed while attempting the
arrest of a murderer three miles northwest
of here. Two Scotsmen had trouble with
an Irishman about some of the letter's
cattle destroying their corn. They killed
the Irishman and took refuge' in their
cabin, defying the authoiitlea. ..
The sheriff and his posse went out and
did not dare go near enough to the cabin
to make the arrest, coming back to town.
Smith volunteered to take two men and
bring in the murderers.
A Martyr to Doty.
When they came near the cabin one of
the Scotsmen was In the rear chopping
wood. The other was inside, and he cut
loose with a gun, firing a shot Into Smith's
breast. The deputies fled, and Smith, with
his true nerve, leaped into the dark little
Cabin and had nearly handcuffed the mur
derer when the Scotsman outside came
with his axe, and with a single blow sev
ered Smith's head from his body.
The wound from the rifle was of Itself
mortal, and his desperate fight after' re
ceiving it showed how undaunted he was.
So ended the life of the man who Is said
by every one who knew him to have pos
sessed the most msgniflcent courage of any

It was characteristic of the feeling of
the cowboys who had been ruled as with a
rod of Iron that when they once gave up
they were Arm friends of the man who
naa conquered them. One day, long after
omiin a death, a gambler took occasion to
Insult his memory. The saloon waa In an
uproar In a minute, and he wa called on
to take back hla words. He dW not do It
quick enough, and was promptly stretched
on the floor by the strongest man present,
while the others cheered at the action.

were sold to build the monument to the
dead marshal's memory. .
