"Once, wbeu "Voiik John' Weutworth

time resldeut of that city, "a bot cam

ment was showing aliens of turbulence,
and 'Long John' knew that the police
force was totally unable to cope with
it If there should be a riot. There
wasn't much of *ny |>ollce force lu
those days. The fvw officers that there
were didn't have nny uniform outside
of a plug bat. On the front of this
waa a semicircle of tin with the uian'a
number on It. There wtm no money to
pay for additional officers, so 'l.ong
John' bethought himself of a bright
scheme He bail a figure *o' udtled to
the number on evert one of those hats.
On electlou day the different members
of the force were stationed conspicu
ously where the trou >le waa most like
ly to break out. Tb' roughs saw the
numbers, "250,' "290,' '3Bo' etc., where
the}' had before seen unl) *2B,' "JO* and

these replicas are turned out In large
numbers, mostly for the benefit of tour

WHICH DID .IT?
When they were building the Colo
rado Midland railway Bmoke Rus
sell was proprietor of the "saloon and,
hotel" that hung over the edge of a
rock close to Windy Polttt; Bomemllea
west of I^advllle.
Smoke's shanty was the rendezvous
for the contractors, bonnes and work
men, especially on Saturday nights.
Wages were high, but hands were
scarce, and there was bad blood
among the contractors on account of
some alleged sharp practice on the
part of those toward I/cadvllle, who
were accused of cutting off the men
contracted for farther up the moun
tain. This was particularly the case
with Donovan and O'Malley, who had
adjoining contracts for blasting a
roadbed out of tho solid rock on the
side of old Sugar Loaf'. (I'Malley, who'
had the upper section, accused Dono
van of stealing hoboes Intended for
him. Donovan denied the charge and
coupled the deulal with some strong
reflections on O'Mailey's personnl
character, antecedents and general
characteristics. The result was tho
usual feud, with dire threats on the
part of each principal to exterminate
the other at the first ginnt opportunity.
The opportunity came sooner than
either expected or wished, for they
were lioth cowards when. It came to a
sure enough tight. Both men were
peaceable enough when sober, but
there was no telling what they would
do when druuk If they should chance
to meet. That very thing happened
one Saturday night. Donovan bad
come down -to Russell's dive for his
usual recreation aud commenced tilling
his tank early In the evening, so that
by 10 o'clock he was pretty drunk. ,
The boys got him started ou O'Mal
ley and egged hlui on nutil he was
red headed. He kept ou getting mad
der and drunker, threatening his en
emy with all kinds of sudden deaths
If It were ever his good luck to run
the coward Into a corner where he
would have to stand and tight, .lust at
this Juncture the door opened and In
walkisl O'Malley, catching Donovan's
last words. The boys were pretty bad
ly frightened and tried to Joke about
the matter and laugh It over, but Dou
ovan was drunk and O'Malley was
mad, aud there was trouble In the
camp. The latter seemed to pay no
attention to his drunken foe, but
walked up to the bar and called for bis
poison. Several of the crowd Joined
hltn, and the drinks began to go down
In a rapid and reassuring manner.
Everybody seemed satisfied but Russell,
who kept a watchful eye on the crowd
and stood close to the end of the liar
by the lamp, so that he could douse
the liglil In case of trouble.
After a bit O'Malley turucd suddenly,
facing Donovan, and licgan In a most
offensive and aggravating manner:
"How are you, Mlsther Donovan?"
"Bad luck to you!" roared the other.
"What the devil do you mean byatalk-
Ing to me?"
"Oh—ohl That's It, Is It, you low
down, lying thief of a dago'/ Stand up
and take your medicine!"
Donovan sprang to his feet and be
fore his friends could Interfere had his
gun out and let drive for O'Malley, who
was scarce an Instant behind him, for
the two shots Hounded like one.
Almost before the first shot sounded
Smoke Russell bad put out the light,
ahi I there was a general scramble of
nouconihatants to get out of the lino
of Are. The two maddened contractors
kept on firing until each had let off
the five rounds In Ills gun. After a
dead silence of about live minutes
lUissell crawled out of the bombpriS)f
under the counter and relit the lamp.
As soon as Donovan tuid jlred Ills
last shot he rushed out of the shanty
to get his horse. He was Still pretty
drunk, but mounted with the assist
ance of the greaser stable Isiy and
started down tbe mountain for I.ead
vlllo. The greaser tried to tell him
something, but Donovan was bio ex
cited to listen, lie only muttered In a
"Holy saints! Five shots in poor
O'Malley and every la'st olid- of 'em
through the heart!"
He took the long trail around tbe
mountain and had considerable troii
ble In finding the tem|iorary bridge
•cross the Arkansas river. So that It
was Just breaking day when he pulled
up In front of the sheriff's house in
I.eadvllle and gave himself up.
A couple of hours later O'Malley ap
peared before the sheriff's house
O'Malley shouted several times, un
til finally an upper window wus raised
and a bnsby head stuck out of It.
"Hello, O'Malley!" cried the sheriff,
with considerable astonishment.
"Where did you come from?"
"I've conle down from Smoke Rus
sell's to give myself up for shooting
"Oh. you shot Donovan, did you?
Now, that beats me ail holler. Say,
did you hurt him much, do you
"Hurt 'lin!" exclaimed O'Malley In
dignantly. "Does It Jiurt a man to
have five bullets in his heart, do y'oiT
"I reckon it do, Mr. O'Malley. Now,
what do you want me to do?"
"I want you to take me to Jail for
"Now. I'll tell you what. Mr. O'Mal
ley, you Just go round to the falabooae
jrourself. Y'ou'll find Donovan there.
He got here aliout two hours ago and
gave himself up for killing you. Just
go 1 around there and settle among
yourselves which of you Is dead, and
I'll come around later and arrest the
other one." ■ „
O'Malley went to the Jail, where
he found Donovan. What transpired
there was never known up the moun
tain, but that the two men afterward
were close friends and finally became
partners was a fact no ono cares to
dispute.—Cincinnati Commercial Trlb
