WXLD BILL'S DEATH.
How McCaull Put the FinislungrTouclies
to That Celebrated Bad Man.
Rather a portly old   gentleman,
with a tawny mustache and a strong
Roman face,, sat comfortably among
a group of friends in the Union Hotel
corridor, in Denver, and grew reminiscent over a fragrant bowl of meerschaum.   It was George W. Adler,
one 'of the- pioneers of the  "Western
country, the man who opened up the
Black Hills and built the first cabin
-oil the site of Deadwood,   a hero of
half a hundred Indian fights, a hunter
trapper, scout and guide: in the  old
day s when the West was a wilderness.
Mr. Adler has known almost all the.
pioneers ofthe West and was a friend
of that picturesque figure in Western
history, Wild 'Bill.   He was within
half, a dozen paces of Bill when Jack
McCaull shot Ii'im in tlie back of the
head hi Deadwood saloon.    HetelIs
the story more minutely than it lias
ever been told in print.-  / V ■•*
To paraphrase tlie quaint wording
of the old pioneer,, tiie killing fell
about in this way, say the Denver
Republican: Bill and McCaull occupied the same cabin together -at
Deadwood in 1876. Bill came into
camp with a notoriety; he ■; had been
acquiring in all the border towns. He
was a ganibler by profession: and a
desperado by nature. He was the
surest shot 'with a pistol in the West.
He had been Marshal of Hays city in
its palmy days of lawlessness, 'and
was afterwards Marshal of Abilene
when that-> little citv had   almost   as
AJ
hard a name. He had killed so
many men that he ..has, lost the count.
So when he rede into Deadwood one
day, with his long yellow hair pour
ing down on his shoulders, his'soni-,
brero-cocked sideways on his heaid
and with two ivory-handled pistols
in their holsters, swinging at either
side, people were 'naturally: very.
respectful. -,-■ \
But; Bill was a man to be feared
rather than respected. He was an
inveterate card player, and cheated
and robbed at the tables with the
pleasantest grace imaginable. He
and McCaull became chums and
batched together in a cabin. .McCaull had just, as bad a character as
Bill, but he had'never-tl'ie-opportiini--
ties; to prove it, and if he had he
would probably have been dead before
Deadwood came into existence. At
any rate, he and Bill used to play,
brace against every one they could
get to put his legs under the table
with them, while this process^of fleecing was going on, Bill and his partner
protended to be perfect strangers to
each other
One day they were at their usual
tricks with a greenhorn in a canvas
saloon on the maiti street. McCaull
broke out and quit the game. Directly
he came up to Bill and said:    " Say,
drink."  Bill looked up M him&s.if
he had never seen him   before. x[ilJ.
don' t know you,' he said. ' '*.. I
gues^ you're good a at the bar."
McCaull went to the bar and asked
for a drink, but the barkeeper thinking he was joking, wouldn't let him
have it.
Then McCaull sulked about the stove
for a little. Finally he went to Bill
ag&inand sa;d :.. " Gimme 50 cents,.
Bill; I want to-get a meaif'rAnd Bill,
still carrying out his role of stranger,
said, with pretended heat, '' Go to
h— for your meal."
McCaull's face flushed. He was
not wily enough to soe what Bill was
driving at. He went .straight out of
the saloon down to his cabin and got
a six-sho:>ter. When he;,came back
he had it cocked in his coat pocket
with his hand upon it. He walked
right up to Bill and quick as a flash
stuck the muzzle of the gun against
Bill's head and pulled the trigger.
There was a.: leap .of fire from the
barrel, a; resounding report, and
Wiicl Bill fell over with his face
among the |poker chips stone dead.
McCaull was arrested and tried before a miner's court aud acquitted^
for the story lie told was],&■.]plausible
one. But one day, when in his cups
he boasted of the deed, detectives in-
vestigated his story and found A it
false, and eventually he was hanged.
sVif
Was She  Risrlit.
, At a Woman's Rights meeting in
Switzerland not long ago, .a'man wa
doing his best to make woman speaker uncomfortable by catechizing her
on the platform. Finally, he brought
up the old argument that women can
not be soldiers, and therefore should
not be allowed toycte.■ ■ 'True," said
the lady orator, ' 'we are not soldiers,
but we are the mothers of our children!" "Oh! as to that," said her opponent, "we are the fathers of our
children! —"You can't swear to that!"
snapped out the feminine orator, and
then there was a grand silence.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER  2,   1893.
Spokane has a monoply of idiocy
in conducting a paper. The Review was bad enough before it followed the public and found, out it was
' 'busted," but now we... hayn't the
type to do justice to our opinions of
the asinine production. A few weeks
ago the weakling was boasting of its
great: business in real estate, just
when its cutters, Gopdall's &c, were
returning dirt to the banks to[cover
lip their piherings. That was the:
real estate boom. The poor thing is-
now after;Cleveland's appointee to
Italy, and says Van Allen is a gentleman, that is, it tries to say ■ otherwise
but makes it very apparent. that it
has nothing else against Mr. Van
• Allen. What a difference it will
make to Mr. Van Allen should he
find out that this inane what is it
does not approve of him. Terrible,
cruel indeed!
is only five miles from Three Forks
yet a letter posted at the latter place
for Watson will travel 200 miles
before it reaches its destination.
This would have been all right when
Adam was on earth but at the present time it is not swift enough to suit
Slocan people. Will the post office
officials in Victoria and Ottawa
kindly get together and see if the can
improve matters ?
NELSON & FORT SHEPHERD RY.
The editor of the Edmonton Times
raves about Three Forks. His remarks are not quite correct in a railroad sence, but as a small sample of
poetical, ice-frosted word painting it
is all right. This is the way he turns
his imagination loose:
'Three Forks will be the terminus
of the line and is a romantic spot
suitable for a small townsite. It is
the hub in which three large canyons
converge, all rich with mineral
claims and is certain to be a lively
centre on account of its proximity to
such a rich district. Here the railway stops, never to go further. Im-
penetratable barriers and glaciers
loom up to the north, rugged steepcs
are on every side, chasms dark with
their great depth shutting out the sun,
defy interference, and the lofty snow
clad mountains in their majestic
prowess look down on the future
townsite, haughty in their snow
white robes and indomitable grandeur."
It is stated that the Nelson &Fort
Shepherd Railway will have difficulty in getting into Nelson, owing
to the right of way, which will only
permit of one road-bed, having been
already located by the C. P. R. for
an, extension of* the C. & K. road.
This is the reason given out, but we
think that the promoters^of the N. &
F. S. Ry;, do hot intend to try and
reach Nelson from Five Mile point.
We think that they intend to extend
their road along Kootenay lake, crossing at the Farrows to Balfour and
thence to Kaslo where they would
connect with the K. & S. road, and
obtain access to the ore trade of the
Slocaii country. It may be years before the connection is made with, the
Kaslo & Slocan railway, but .ultimately the two roads will come together,
even if ISFelson is side-tracked to a
certain extent.
HELPING THE COUNTRY.
THE MAIL SERVICE.
The mail service is wretched in
this country, and should be remedied
in some way.    For instance, Watson
One of the greatest aids to th e d e-
velopment of a mining country is the
cheap transportation to market of its
ores. In order to do this: railroads
have to be built and operated. This
takes a great deal of money and frequently, it requires much faith to
construct a road into a country where
all the mines are in their infancy.
The British Columbia government
recognizing this part, and feeling
certain: that by assisting this Kootenay district they would "be-.benefiting not only this province, but the
entire Dominion, came to tlie front
when everything looked blue, and
backed the Nakusp X Slocan railway
to the extent of nine million dollars
by guaranteeing their bonds.
What is the result? -We have a
road under construction tliat in a
short time will tap the very heart < f
tlie greatest galena country in the
world. Minors, speculators and prospectors are jubilant. They will now
be able to ship ores at such a low
rate of freight to smelter points'that
nothing, except an earthquake can
keep back tlie prosperity of all the
camps in this wonderful region:
We have no particular reason to
puff the government. '..They have not
patted us on the back or fed us with
a golden spoon but we believe in
giving them credit .when .-they-.deserve it, and we feel certain that
most ofthe people in this section will
join with us in stating that the Nakusp & Slocan railway will long be a
monument to the liberality and fore
thought of the present government
of this grand and glorious province,
one of the brightest gems in the
diadem of Canada.
