for the blowing up mining plant
and on other charges, Siringo mere
ly told of what he bad seen end
learned, but of hia own hair-breadfth
escapes from death or torture he
bad said little.
Details given in the following ac
count of Siringo' a experiences while
acting as a spy in the Miners fJn
ion at Gem, Idaho, in 1892, were
furnished by a detective in the em
ploy of the state. ' who is a warm
friend of the Pinkerton oper

His "areenal" consists of a "saw
ed-cff barrel 44-caliber revolver,
which is nickel-plated and of the
single action variety. It is raid
that be can hoi a this at the hip,
with the trigger pulled tight to the
guard, and "fan" the hammer with
the other hand eo rapidly that he
can empty the weapon of , its six
shots much more rapidly than could
be accomplished with a double ac
tion revolver, and yet with such ac
curacy as to place the bullets, at
distance of 20 or 3O. feet, within
radius of two incnea.
Oae day a meeting of the union
held, at wmcn tnere was consiaer
abU talk about stooping the pumpi
at a Wardner mill and allowing it
to become flooded. Lter tha pres
idtnt of the union suggested to Sir

Vociferous applause greeted tb
denunciation, in : which AilisoD
joined, seemingly, with a will. He
was then invited to step down, wbile
tttvsttu men, including Dillae, ex
ffilBd bis books. He did eo and
tbete aen went over bia books ca e
faHy, frequently mutteriog in un
dertones. The secretary finally in
quired as to what was the cause of
their perplexity, suggesting that he
might be able to explain anything
wbion puzzled them.
"Ye?," menacingly remarked one
of the men, "there is a lief missing
from the minute book. Can yon
iringo replied that be could and
would. . He then ent on to ex
plain that the president of the un
ion bad instructed bim to remove
"fiat's a lie!' Angrily shouted
the president, rising from hia chair.
tHold 00, sir; not so fatt,". re
epdMed tbe secretary-spy, "you

that at the last meeting a good deal
was said about flooding tbe mill at
Wardner, and.-that you afterward

The president sat down and
promptly apelpg1zd, saying that hf
