After referring to the programme of the

reported alH matively upon one proposi

nomitiaVoa than , 20 francs or 20

them. In the discussion of the various
propositions the attitude of nearly all

the delegates sav the coherence is to re

ade Mr. Iieckwith has employed his win

op curios and articles of vertu. These
have been shipped home, and as a result
bis house looks more like a museum than
anything else. Although a bachelor, Mr.
Iieckwith isa sybarite, and the incongruity
of an Egyptian mummy leering under an
electric light rather amuses him. Be it
known that no woman save his sister-in-law
has ever set foot in the charming place
he calls the ranch."
Several years ago there was a gang of
rustlers known as the McCoy gang in cen
tral Colorado that robbed the cattlemen
riht and left. So bold did they become
that tenderloin steuks were sold in Coropai
for a cent a pound. It was through the ef
forts of Iieckwith that the gang was prac
tically annihilated, and that Dick McCoy,
one of the worst desperadoes ever unhung,
is now ''doing life" at Canyon City.
But for Beckwith s story. "It was in
October of 1888," began he, "that I found
Fred Arnold dead on Texas creek. Arnold
was one of our riders, you know. There
was a big hole in his breast, and his legs
were riddled with Winchester bullets.
Both of his guns were in his belt. I knew
that Arnold was a quick man with a gun
and that be must have been n- il.uahed. As
a matter of fact he rode j western range
because we knew him to be a fighter and
able to take care of himself in any trouble
he might have with the McCoy gang.
"A quick search showed tracks of a
couple of men and horses behind the wil
lows on the other side of the creek. The
trail of one of the men revealed that he
bad dragged his left leg a trifle. That
meant Dick McCoy sure. After following
the trail of the horses for five miles, and
seeing that it pointed to the McCoy ranch,
I turned back and picked poor Arnold up
and took him to the ranch. The verdict of
the coroner's jury was, 'Murdered by per
sons unknown.' It's the regulation form,
but it didn't suit us. So we called a meet
ing of the cattlemen and talked it over. It
didn't take long to come to the conclusion
that if we wanted to protect our interests
and save the lives of our riders and our
selves the McCoy gang hod to be wiped out.
"In the early morning two days later
sixteen men rode through the gulch that
ended at McCoy's place. There wasn't
any shelter, and we had to ride for it. In
the corral were seven men killing rustled .
cattle. On the fence were half a dozen
hides with the brands cut out. The sight
made us crazy, mid with a yell we dashed
forward. The rustlers 'cut loose' first and
two of our men dropped out of their sad
dies. One was killed, the other shot
through the .-boulder. We got six of the
