la tha chapter of "The Virginian" Im
mediate! r following the opa called "Super
stltlon Trait," Owen Wlster has sketched
the rendesvous of the Wyoming; "wlld
bunch" which ia known locally as "The
Hole ia the Wall." and also as "Jackson's
Hole." It Is hleh up lit the Teton range
of mountains. After the dramatlo scena
among the cottonwoods, when Steve and
Ed were hanged to expiate their high
crime of cattle "rustling," It will
be remembered that the Virginian and his
companion struck off through the hills and
up to the higher peaks. Xter a long climb
up a rocky trail the two gained the basin,
where Bhorty'a final tragedy was played.
Out of that green retreat only Tram pas
merged hla horee'a hoofprinta were fol
lowed by the two.
"Somewhere at the eastern basa of the
Tetons did those hoofprinta dlaappear Into,
a mountain sanctuary where many crooka
ths have led. He that took another
Joan's poaaesalons, or he that took another
ilaA's Ufa. could always run her If the
or popuUr "justice were to hot at his
neeta. Steep rangea and forests walled
him In from the world on all four aide,
almost without a break; and every entrance
lay through Intricate solitudes. Snake river
came Into the place through canyons and
mounrrul pine and msrihea, to the north,
and went out at the south between formid
able chasms. Every tributary to this
stream rose among the high peaks and
ridges, and descended into the valley by
well-nigh Impenetrable couraes; pacific
creek from Two-Ooaan paaa; Buffalo fork,
from no pass at all; Black Hot It, from
the To-wo-gee-tee paaa all these, and
many mora, were the waters ct loneliness.
among whose thousand hiding placea it was
easy to be loat. Down In the bottom was
a spread of level land, broad and beauti
ful, wllh the blue and silver Tetons rising
from Its chain of lakes In the west, and
other heights presiding over its sides. And
up and down and In and out of the hollow
square of mountains, where waters plenti
fully flowed and game and natural pas
ture abounded, there skulked a nomadic
and distrustful population."
Refuge for Thieve and Hardarors.
It was to "The Hole in the Wall" that
Trampaa and Shorty, with but one horse
between them, had fled. Trampaa got
there, and waa a wallowed up; and Shorty,
a victim to "necessity," waa left behind.
In the real life of Wyoming scores of
"rustlers" and murderers and truln rob
bers have found refuge from eager pur
suit in the "Hole." After the raid on the
bank at Cody two weeks ago, whose only
result was the killing of a brave cashier,
it was to the "Hole" in the Tetons that
the raiders fled, nearly 100 miles southeast.
Tom Horn, hanged last year after a pic
turesque career aa a cattle thief and bad
man, knew the "Hole"; "Black Jack" Tom
Ketchum, hanged at Clayton, N. M., was
known a the original leader of the "wild
bunch" that uaed the mountain refuge of
Wyoming; Harvey Logan, who killed him
self a few months ago at Parachute, Colo.,
when surrounded by officers, and half a
score of others, knew these gloomy, enclos
ing mountain walls. To the northwest the
Teton range has been what the Algerian
mountains are to the people of Tangier,
a safe hiding place for whatever Raisul!
gained their shadowa.
If It were possible to go straight north
west from Cheyenne toward the Yellow
stone reservation. "The Hole In the Wall"
mould be found to 11 almost directly In
the way, and less thsn 100 miles from the
southeast corner of the great national
park. Once upon a time, a geologist
would describe It, this hug cup In the
mountains wss evidently a lake. In the
course of centuries (a geologist always
seems to speak loosely) the waters of ths
laks gnawsd their way out In a narrow
stream where It was easiest to break
through. loiter the outlet became a deep
gorge, and the waters of the lake fell lower
and lower until the one wide and deep
body of water became but aa Interrupted
chain of small pool and a rapid little
stream that Is a veritable torrent when the
snow melts In the spring. It was the reced
ing lake that left the "bleak, crumbled
rim" that ran "like a rampart between the
towering tops," and under that rim sub
terranean passages and staring caves were
left, too, where a cautious man, familiar
with ' the basin, might hide and be safe
from capture for any length of tlmo. The
entrance to the "Hole." and Its exit, are
narrow, steep, rock-bottomed gorges
through which the prehistoric lake found
Its way to lower levels.
Ead of the Wild Bonc-h.
The end of the "wild bunch" has been
announced to a relieved northwest more
than once. When Logan was found self
killed an enthuslastlo sheriff wired to a
Chicago detective agency whose work had
been onerous in Wyoming and Colorado:
"Dead robber abaolutely Identified as
Logan. This means the end of the Hole In
the Wall gang." In the minds of the thief
takers and men tamers of the west, Harvey
Logan, who was better known as "Kid
Curry," was the leader of that band. "The
Hole In the Wall" without Logan would
surely become but a memory of wickedness.
To that versatile outlaw had been credited
the leadership of the "bunch" that robbed
the Butte County bank at Belle Fourche,
B. D., In 1897; that held up a Union Paclflo
train at Wilcox, Wyo.. in 1899; that robbed
another express car at Tipton; that looted
the First National bank at Wlnnemucca,
Nev.. of over $30,000 In 1900. and that got
$36,000 from a Great' Northern train at Wag
ner. Mont.. In 1901. By the time he was
run to eerth It was thought that the "wild
bunch" had dwindled to "Kid Curry" and
two others. It waa known that "Butch"
Caseldy (a sinister, fitting name) and Harry
Longbaugh. the "Sundance Kid," were at
large, but It was thought that they had de
serted "The Hole In ths Well" forever.
Now. with Colonel Cody and his Indian
scout on ths trail of ths men who killed
Cashier Mlddaugh. and with ths trail
pointing again to the Teton range retreat.
It la not, so certain that th regnancy In
outlawry lapsed when Harvey Logan killed
hlmaelf at parent. It la even hinted
that the great "Bill" Cnisans. who wss re
ported to have been killed in a fight with
officers. Is still alive. ,nj a leader of sor
ties from the "Hola,"
Haaat af tha Oatlaw.
For fifteen year, at least. "Th Hoi In
th Wail" has been known and used by th
outlawed among the cowboy and gamblers
of the northwest. It waa In 1S92 that its
secrets were revealed to the world. In
that year a Northern Pacific train was held
up near Big Timber. Mont., h
press car plundered. The "Job" vas well
done, and the posse formed to run down
inn louoers naa a long, stern chase. One
man, Camilla Hanks, was captured. He
was the "Deaf Charlie" of rne gang, and
from him the officers got the first trust
worthy Information concerning the "wild
bunch." He was from Texas, as was Ben
Kilpatrlck, the "Tall Texan," who was
neatly trapped by detectives while on a
drunken spree In St. Louis. .After serving
a ten years' sentence at Deer Lodge, Mont.,
he returned to the old life, to be killed
twoyears ago by a posse at San Antonio.
It Is the general belief In the country
where such things are most tulked about
that at least one woman wa an active
member of the "wild bunch," and knew the
secrets of the "Hole." She was Laura Bul
lion, an Intimate of the "Tall Texan," who
fled to St. Louis with Kilpatrlck after the
robbery of the Great Northern express car
at Wagner, Mont. When arrested her satch
el contained some thousands of unsigned
bank note of the National Bank of Mon
tana and the American National Bank of
Helena. She, with Kilpatrlck. Is serving a
terra in the penitentiary at Jefferson City,
The outlawed went to th "Hole" by e
cret way, one by one; they gathered there
to plan tha next raid. Bending out courier
to collect the news that would be likely U
ut oi vaius to them. Their arrangements
made, they slipped out of th "Hoi" one
by one. to meet perhaps two weeks later
and aw miles away and carry out a raid.
When a robbery had been committed and
th plunder wa distributed every man had
to defend himself. He might go southwest
Into Arlson or Into southern California,
th whim might tak him down into th
Rio Grands country, or Chicago or Bt.
Louis might draw him. But when ths
ohas grew stern and the money grew
scarce the "Hole In the Wall" was ths final
refuge. Even those men who, for one rea
son or another, gave up the Robin Hood
existence and became, as Mr. Wlster de
scribed them, "the honest citizens of the
Hole," were always resdy to furnish food
and new to th hunted. It wa when th
refugees left th "Hole" and put sslde the
tremendous advantage of Its (talus sea
that they were "plucked." Thus "Flat
Nosed George" was killed In a fight with
Utah officers; Sam Ketchum was wounded
and captured near Cimarron, N. M.; "Black
Jack" Tom Ketchum, another brother, was
also taken In New Mexico; Bob Lee, Tom
O'Day, and Elza Ray fell victims to the
law far out of sight of the Tetons. There
was nothing In the "Hole" worth having
except safety, and that was worth risking
when a man had money and a six-months-old
desire to spend It on a glorious carouse.
