"Do they graza during the day, or

"They are always grazing, paying

According to the accounts just re
ceived from Silver City, Green was
dealing faro at a table in one of the
new gambling shops which have
sprung with the tewn into life, and
young Leslie AlcCoy.the son of Judge
McCoy, was playing. The limit of
the game, according to this rsport,
was $2 50, but McCoy persisted in
pressing the limit and iu betting
more than the rules permitted. A
running quarrel wss kept np for some
lime... At last McCoy made a bet ol
$3 75, and then when he lost,-undertook
to reclaim $1 25, claiming that
he should retain all over the limit.
Hero tin quarrel became ferocious.
Green demanded tho money, but Mo-
toy saiu mat he could not hare it
that no man could take it. Consider
able swearing was inuulged in on
both sides. Frank l'otterfield, who
i also a gambler, occu ied the look
out chair, and at this juncture drew
revolver. I Ins was a move irausht
with doubly fatal consequences, l'ot
terfield had uo sooner brought his
weapon to light t'lan McCoy produo
ed one, and it became evident that
blood would be spilled unless seme
oi.e backed down. On account of a
lame hand, Pollerfivld was unable to
use the revolver. Grasping the situ
ation iu a twinkling, Green snatched
I'otleifield's weapon, and in the flash
of an eye had leveled it at his aula
genista. The room wss crowded
when the quarrel began, but, as may
well be imagined, there was now a
general rush for the door, as well
there might be. Very Jew, if any,
were actual witnesses of the conflict.
Tho fight was of short duration, but
furious. The two men were ou op
posilo sides of tho deal-table, and
OMild almost have struck each other
with their weapons. In much less
time thau is required to tell the story
the occurance Lad come to an end.
The guns in the hands ot both men
wero raised almost simultaneously,
and both fired at nearly the auie
time, the bairelsof tho two pistols
lapping acro-s tho table. Whether
either ball took etl'vct dors not appear,
but it seems quit prebnblo that in
xt-It.erneui both missed their aim,
close as they were to each other. At
any rate, three shots were fired by
each of the parties before the dread
ful duel same to an end, when the
crowd rushed back, to find both men
reeking in blood. McCoy was lying
across the deal-table, and had already
breathed his last. Tho bullet which
had proved fatal had gone direct to
the seat oi lile, passing through the
heart. McCoy ha 1 also given his an
tagonist a ball in the head, which if
it does not prove, or has not. proved,
fatal, will give Green great trouble,
and bo the cause of disfiguring his
countenance for life. Green was
shot in the (eft eye, the ball ranging
down and coming out under the right

The execution of White Owl and
Quita-tumps, for tbe murder ol
George Coggan near Cayuso Station,
last July, took place this afternoon.
Both were reservation Indians, last
Summer. Thursday and Thursday
night were passed by the Indians in
chanting death soigs aud bidding
their friends good bye. The cere
monies at the gallows were conduct
ed according to rites of the Indian
religion. Both While Owl and Quit
a lumps relused to have anything to
do with the Catholic priests, or to re
ceive other spiritual consolation.
They were attired in clothes given
them by the whites, and their faces
were gaudily painted. Both made
short speeches from the scaffold con
fessing that they did the shooting,
but refused to acknowledge the jus
tice of their late. They continued,
singing death chants until the drop
fell at 2 45 a. m. The fall dislocated
their necks, and both died without
hardly a struggle. Alter hanging lor
seven minutes they were pronounced
dead. The bodits wert cut down and
delivered to thelndiant for disposition
The bodies will be buried to morrow.
Consisltrable demonstration will be
made over the body of Quit-a-tuinrs.
A detachment of the First Cavalry,
under Maj. Jackson, and a number ot
citiz-en volunteers were stationed out
side the jail enclosure during the ex
eculion. Tho military will remain at
the agency until after the hanging ol
Aps, which will tike place next Fri
day. Considerable uneasiness is felt
as 10 the result of the execution, aud
it is not known but that the Indians
profess great fiienship, bot many bv
lieve it only assumed. 1
The execution to day was witnessed
by about 100 persons, inoluding 10
Indians. A great crowd collected
on the outside of the jail eoclosure
and on surrounding housetops.
Everything passed of qaielly. It
is hoped tbe baaging will prove a
salutary lesson to the Indians.

Who Stole Stewart's Body ?"
Oil City Derrick.
This is an age of surprises, W
very much regret to say it, but we
heveevidenco in our possession which
points stronfly to Whitolaw Reid,
Kev. Talmago and George Francis
Train as tho violators of Mr. Stewart'
grave. It is hard to think of these
gentlemen (who have heretofore oc
cupied such high positions in social
and literary circles) as ghouls, grave
robbers and humau hyenas, and yet
the evidence against them cannot
well be set aside. For instance! On
the night of tho outrage Mr. Talmage
left home at the usual hour, about
half past 10, informing his wife that
he was going over to New York te
pL-k up a few tacts lor bis next ser
mon. Mrs. Talmage remarked that
the thing wa getting a trifle thin, or
something to that effect, but finally
gaio her consent, and Mr. Talmage
was ou, Tfuisinng. 1 ta une 01
the Boys Myselt." His hour for re
turning from these ntcturnal excur
sions, Mrs. Talmage states, is about 3
M. JLMd the gentleman return at
that hour on the fatal morning ? He
did not. Ho did not get home until
after daylight. Perhaps tbe gentle
man can account for his strange tardi
ness on this morning ot all mornings',
snd ws know of no better place for
him to bo this than in the open Court.
Now for Mr. Train. A spade waa
undoubtedly used to remove the earth
from tho ess ;et that held the remains.
Now observe: One week before Mr.
Stewart's remains wero stolen, Mr.
Train stepped into a hardware store
iu New ork and purchased short
handled spade, telling the salesman
that he would call on the following
Saturday and pay lor it. The sales
man said that they did a strictly cash
business, but Mr. Train pulled out ft
pocket black-board, and showed him
that the ago had evoluted beyond the
cash system, and intimated th t if ha
was not permitted to purchase tho
spade on true business principles, he
would cut the psyohologio wire be
tween the ostsblishment and its pa
trons, and it would eortainly shoot
the . Niagara of bankruptcy before
sunset next day. II was permitted
to tako the spade. As, if additional
evidence wore needed against Mr.
Train, our attention has been called
to the lact that on the day beiore the
ghastly robbery, ho was seen sitting
on his seoiiNtoined bench in Madison
Squaro, and was heard to repeat the
following lines from tho grave-yard
scene in Hamlet:
"A pick-ax and a spade, a spaJ
For and a shrouding sheet
O, a pit of clay for to be madt 1
For such a guest i meet"
Now let us turn our attention to
Mr. Whittle w Reid. It will be re
mcmbeied that ft coj y of the Now
York Herald was found the mornior
of the robbery at or near ths violated
tomb. Now mark tbe following
lads: 'On tho evening proooding the
morning ol the dastardly outrage.
Whitelaw Reid was seen going into
the lYibunebttt saloon reading
copy of the New York Herald of the
tame date as the one found. A few
moments later Mr. Reid emerged
trotn the saloon, looked oautiously
about him, and when he supposed no
one was watching, placed three car
damon seeds in his mouth and walk
