PalnLodo, Tex., June 5.-Shortly
before noon today a mounted stranger entered this remote village, driving before him, in single file, tivelvo
men, whoso Wats-were pinioned and
their feet shackled. Tbo stranger
win C.ipt. Frank Hull, or "Winches
tor Frank," tho celebrated Indian
scout, und his captives had composed
a baud of the most desporate, lawless aud bloodthirsty moonshiners
and horse-thieves iu Texas, whose
capture by one man was a feat that
for audacity and daring has novel-
been surpassed.
Tins country bus long been infested by oilt'iiuvs and desperadoes.
Fifteen mil��s from lioro in tho
mountains was a moonshine distillery
operated by tha baud that was
brought iu hero today. Many attempts have boon made to break up
the institution. Defectives and revenue agents have come hero iu various disguises and endeavored by
force or strategy to accomplish tho
destruction of the still aud the capture of its operators, They invariably
���'disappeared" and the moonshiuers
continued the business.
Two weeks ago a stranger arrived
hero and engaged board lit tho only
hotel, N'joue knew bis nunio or his
business. He never left his room
during the day, but as soon us dark
eamo bo was out and gone, sometimes nut returning until morning,
About noon ou the fourth day after
his arrival tho struuger was scon to
rush out of the llot-jl, mount a hoiso
which was tied to a rack and ride
furiously out of town, just as tho
ordinary horse-thief does when he
makes a "grab," The horse was a
struugeoue. No oua it the town
had ever seen it before, but it had
been uoticed standing at the rack at
dai light that iliofniug. liut jumping
iu the uouclusion that the horse was
a stolen oue, and th.it the stranger
was nnkiug away with it, the alarm
was given, the citizens mouuted and
stinted iu hot pursuit, liut the
fugitive was already iu the woods
and out uf sight, aud as none of Ihe
parly wire personally interested the
chase was gi\eu up.
Today the sequel to this incident
was related to your correspondent by
the strange'-,���Cupt. Hall, After
leaving here he rode at breakneck
speed toward the moonshine distillery, turning off from Ihe main trail
into a path that led up the mountain
to ihe rendezvous of the outlaws,
and by which path only was it
accessible. Tho entrance to tho
moonshiuers' territory was alwajs
guarded by two men, who co-aid,
with the natural and artificial barricades, stand off a regiment. Cupt.
Hall almost rode over theso guards,
and on being stopped, was appal-, n'.-
ly very much frightened. He pro-
tendod to believe that they were
members of the party in pursuit of
him who ha 1 headed him off, and
tflld thorn that ho would surrender
and tuke the usual consequences.
The outlaw guards wero puzzled.
They fired a shot in tho air, aud
imiuiiiiiiitcly the remainder of tho
band, all heavily armed, came rushing down tho path. Tho guards explained tho situation to tho leader,
Bill Weaver, who questioned Hall
clusely. He kept up his rolo of
fugitivo horsethief, and convinced
tho moonshiners that ho was what
he claimed to bo.
After a consultation with bis meu,
Weaver told Hall be was mistakon
about their being after him, They
bad no moro use for the law than he
bad, and if the sheriff and Ms posse
wero after him ho had better stay
with them until tho affair blew over,
wlieu they would help him to escape.
"Wo run a little business up here'"
said Weaver, "and are short-handed,
We aint afraid of you, for if you aro
tricky wo cnu soon plunt you." The
overjoyed horse-thief cousented to
the proposition aud was soon ut home.
among tho outlaws, Ho was watched
closely for several days, but kept up
kis assumed character so perfectly
that coufilence in him h-id soon
liruily established, und bo was ('."lived all the privileges enjoyed by
other members of the gang,
Lust night nil tbo moonshiners, except the guards began playing cards
and drinking nut of a bucket of
whiskey that was placed
on Ihe floor in the center of Iho room
About midnight, when all were
pretty well loaded, Hill slipped oul
unobserved and lire.l a shot in the
air, OB hearing the warning signal
every man rushed outside tho cabin
und down lo where the guards were.
Hall, who whs bidden behind a
boulder, rushed in, and Inking a
botllo of chloroform from inside his
shirt bosom ho emptied the c��iltonts
into the bucket and a moment later
rejoined the band. The guards knew
nothing about the shot, but thought
it had been tired over on the olh ir
side of the mountain. This explanation seemed plausible uu 1 they
returned to tho cabin and resumed
their carousal. One by one ihe outlaws dropped off to sleep, and when
the last man v:ns dowu Hall took
some strongJpieoeB of rawhide rope,
bound the arms of each man, and
tied their logs together so that they
could walk, but not run.
Then ho filled a bottle with the
chloroformed whiskey aud weutdown
to the guards. They wero dry,
emptied tho bottle without a shudow
of suspieion and were soon asleep.
Hall secured them as ha had done
tho others, and returning to the
cabin secured all tho revolvers ami
gnus belonging to the gang and
threw them into tho well which fur
Disked water for the still. Then lie
dragged the two guards up to the
cabin where the others lay, saddled
his horse and wailed developments,
Ahout su riso tho outlaws begun
to wake up and to realize that they
had been captured by one man. Hail
told them that ho had come llieie
after them uud they had to go with
him; that the first man who showed
any disposition to run would die.
Theu he marched them outside,
formed them in line, set lire to the
distillery, and after it was all d"-
stroyod, including seventy-live
barrels of whiskey, ho drove thorn
fifteen miles across the country to
this place, and delivered them up
to the oilieers.
Captain Hall is known as one of
the most daring, reckless and fearless men on the Western frontier,
