Having so much money in his possession

After innumerable hardships he finally
reached Texas, where he went to work driv

BEGAN HIS CAREER AS A DESPERADO.
Here he began his career as a desperado. It
was during one of his trips that he went
into a dance house in one of the small towns
along the line of the Union Pacific road,
and proceeded to fill himself with bug juice
and to have a general good time, when the
lover of one of the girls, with whom he was
making too free, took exception to liis meth
od and proceeded to empty his six-shooter
The first shot struck him on the right side,
glanced from the rib and made its exit near
the backbone. The second shot struck him
in the left leg, shattering the bone, and ren
dered him unconscious for a brief time; but
he revived to see his would-be murderer pass
ing out the back door, and with a mighty
effort he sueoeeded in drawing his pistol,
took deliberate aim and fired. The result
was the death of his foe, who fell in his
HOVERING BETWEEN LIKE AND DEATH.
For a long time Riley hovered between
life and death, but, being a man of her
culean frame and wonderful vitality, he
pulled through, and from thence on became
the desperado whose hands are stained with
the blood of twenty men.
A RED-HANDED MARSH Ato
When he entirely recovered he went to
Ellsworth, where he was made Marshal of
the town. It was the general headquarters
of the cowboys in that region. Here he
killed two men, and was himself seriously
wounded. That section becoming too warm
for him, he once more migrated to Newton,
Kan., where he joined forces with another
notorious slayer of human beings named
The wild frontier town was swarming
with thieves, murderers and roughs of all
classes, and men of indomitable courage
being wanted to suppress them, ltiley and
McCloskey were selected by the good citi
zens as Marshal and Deputy Marshal.
A BLOODY STREET AFFRAY.
Within a few days their services became
necessary. A street fight was inaugurated
by some of the desperadoes, and the two
adventurers lost uo time in flying to the
scene, where they joined in the melee, with
the result that three of the murderously in
clined cowboys “bit the dust.”
This event brought to the surface the in
ordinate thirst for blood possessed by Riley.
in the character of Marshal, and under the
cloak of the law, he slew three men who,
had he chosen, might have been taken alive,
instead of being sent unprepared into the
presence of their Maker.
The companions of the dead cowboys
vowed that their taking off should be
avenged, and accordingly awaited a fitting
opportunity. At last it came. Riley was
oraered to pursue and capture some horse
thieves who had been committing depreda
tions around Newton, and expected to be
absent about a week.
Here was the much desired opportunity.
The cowboys gathered together and con
cluded to exterminate McCloskey.
THE PLOT TO KILL M'CLOSKEY.
For that purpose they proceeded to a
dance-house owned by Riley and Mc-
Closkey and started a row with the latter.
A fight was an easy thing to find in those
days, and in less’ time than it takes to
write it McCloskey had taken umbrage at
Hometiling a cow-boy had done, and draw
ing his revolver he fired a shot.
This was wliat the cow-boys wanted. In
an instant every man's hand held an im-
Blement of death. A volley was fired and
fcCloskey fell riddled with bullets. As he
lay bathed in his blood one of his murderers
stepped forward anrl deliberately com
mented emptying a revolver into his body.
before the third ball bail left bis pistol the
door of the dance-house was thrown ojieu
aud a gigantic form was outlined against
the sky. It was Riley.
A CARNAGE OF BLOOD.
The cowlxtys were dumbfounded, as they
thought him miles away.
Riley took in the situation at a glance,
and springing forward he seized around the
neck the man who was shooting into the
body, and, throwing him before his body as
a shield, he drew his own pistol and com
menced a fusilude.
Before he had finished seven men hail fal

exploit he went to Council Bluffs, where he

The conductor said that the train would

drew his revolver and brought it down with
crushing force on the officer’s head, fractur
ing his skull so seriously that dor a long
time he was confined to his bed.
The other two gamblers also drew pistols,
and the three of them drove the officers and
passengers from the car, and amused them
selves by perforating the ear with bullets.
The officers secured reinforcements, but the
desperadoes retreated, mid, after exchang
ing a few harmless shots, escaped over the
ice into Council Bluffs.

he was never recaptured.

CARDINAL GIBBONS SPEAKS.
From His Throne He Gives Impressions
of His European Trip.
Baltimore, June 12.—The late mass at
the cathedral to-day was sung bv the Very
Rev. A. Magnien, assisted by two young
clergymen from St. Mary’s Seminary. Car
dinal Gibbons occupied his throne, and
made a short address after the Gospel. In
stead of following the text for the day, he
gave a few impressions of his European trip,
which, he said, was by far the most inter
esting he had ever taken.
“First of all,” said he, “I must speak of
the Holy Father, who has conferred on this
great archdiocese and upon my unworthy
person the high office of Cardinal. Though
he is deprived of his temporal possessions it
can be safely said that to-day he exercises
more power over the civilized world than
any kmg or potentate, and although he has
no military tiowers to back him his words
are more conducive to peace than the ac
tions of all the standing armies in Europe.
In his case it can be truly said that his voice
is mightier than the sword. He enjoys the
love anil veneration of 250,000.000 of Cath
olics scattered throughout the length and
breadth of the world, and ho has
the respect and esteem our
separated brethren, who have not
failed to recognize his many personal
virtues, his benevolent character, and his
broad, statesmanlike views. He has a spe
cial regard for this republic of ours ami the
citizens of the United States, which was am
ply demonstrated during my sojourn in
Rome. At the time there was a large num
qer of Americans in the city, all or whom
very naturally wished to see the Holy
Father. I mentioned the fact to him at the
next opportunity, and in reply he said he
would indeed be much pleased to see them.
When the visitors wore afterward presented
they were charmed by his presence, and
went away favorably impressed with all
that he had said. Another illustration of
his love for Americans was shown od Easter
Tuesday, when all the Cardinals then in
Rome paid their respects to His Holiness.
He took that occasion to again speak of his
great love for this country. .
“On leaving Italy I went to France, for
the purpose of visiting some of the mother
houses which have branches in this arch
diocese. You may be surprjged to know it,
but it is nevertheless true, What there aro
fifteen institutions in this city with parent
homes in France. I next journeyed to
Rhoims, where I was hospitably received by
the Cardinal Archbishop. In Rheims, you
are aware, all the Kings of France, from the
fifth century to the time of Charles X., were
crow ned and consecrated. Another circum
stance which made the place particularly
interesting is the fact that in Rheims the
New Testament, now in use by the Catholic
church, wns translated in the latter part of
the sixteenth century by the Rev.
William Allen, a former professor of
Oxford University. I have said so much
about France because she bus done so much
for religion, and contributed in no small de
gree to American independence. Hardly a
State in this country has not been tramped
over by French missionaries. When the
storm of oppression raged over France it
carried to our shores clergymen and mis
sionaries who left behind them the impress
of their zeal and sanctity. It is true there
is much infidelity in France to-day, but
under that frothy surface there is a current
of strong feeling for the Holy Father. For
my part, when I consider the large sums of
money annually placed by France at the
feet of the Holy Father for the propagation
of the faith; when I consider the number of
disinterested ladies and gentlemen from the
highest walks of life who w-ork for the church
with so much unselfish devotion, I say with
all my heart that France need never despair.
“I have not time to enumerate the nmny
pleasant incidents connected with iny trip
through England, Ireland, .Scotland and
Holland, but I observed in my travels
through those countries that the social and
material condition of America will not suf
fer by comparison. Whatever may be the
grievances of the laboring classes here, I
believe our men are better paid, better
clothed, better housed, and nave fairer
prospect* than those of any other nation I
“I wish to express my heartfelt thanks
for the kind reception you all gave me last
Tuesday. It did my heart good as I saw

country. I always wish to see those two
flags lovingly entwined, for no one can be

RAPID PROGRESS OF THE SANFORD
Four Stations Already Secured for
Lieut. Taunt's Trading Posts—He Em
ploys First-Class Agents to Man

t'rom the New York Sun.
It is an interesting fact that the commer
cial enterprise on the Upper Congo, which
is developing most rapidly, is managed and
in | 'art controlled by Americans. It Is the
Sanfonl exploring expedition, and its busi
ness headquarters are in Brussels. Mr. San
ford, formerly our Minister to Belgium, is
at the head of the enterprise, and Lieut.
Taunt, formerly of the United States Navy,
is its manager on the Congo. Two Belgian
capitalists, Mr. Jules Malon and Senator
Monteflore-Levy. are its largest financial
supporters. Its fii-st consignment of the ex
portable articles of the Upper Congo has al
ready reached Europe.
Lieut. Taunt’s ambitious project has more
than once been mentioned in the Sun. but
its details are revealed only as they are car
ried into effect on the Upper Congo. Its
purpose is to find the liest places at which to
establish commercial stations on the Upjier
Congo and its affluents, and to erect in these
places the necessary storehouses and other
buildings, put them in charge of commer
cial agents, and barter manufactured prod
ucts for ivory. India-rubber, and palm oil of
the natives. It lias been the first trading
company to launch a steamboat on the up
per river, aud the first to have more than a
The Dutch and French trading companies
that have pushed up the river to Stanley
Pool have not vet got Iteyond that point.
The Sanford Company, however, has not
only built a fine station at Kinshasha, but it
has also purchased the stations and build
ings of the Congo State nt Manyanga, Equa
torville and Luebo. Manyanga is in the
('ataraet region below Stanley Fool, and all
Congo travelers speak of its great native
market, where the tribes gather from far
and near to exchange their wares. A fine
picture of Equatorville appears in Stanley’s
latest book. Until the Free State decided
that it no longer needed a post at this point,
Equatorville had the name of being the
finest white station on the upper river. The
station of Luebo is near the great Kassni
river, on its Lulua affluent, in the midst of
a great ivory-producing region, and about
GOO miles by steamer from Stanley Pool.
Lieut. Taunt expected by this time to
have taken possession of this commercial
outpost far south of the Congo, but the
necessities of the Stanley expedition inter
fered with his plans. Before his machinists
were able to put the engine into his fine new
vessel, the Florida, the Emin Pasha expe
dition reached Stanley pool, and the hulk
was at once crowded with men and goods
and taken in tow to Stanley Falls. When
the Florida returns to the pool her machinery
will be put in place, and then Lieut. Taunt
expects to push far up the Kassai. There is
little doubt that his enterprise will lie the
pioneer commercial expedition in the region
of whose ivory resources a half dozen ex
plorers have written such accounts.
This costly enterprise of course gives em
ployment to a considerable body of white
men. Americans, Belgians and English
men are now on Lieut. Taunt's pay roll, and
almost every steamer for the Cogo’ takes out
oiM> or more recruits for his several stations.
His best men are those who have already
had long experience on the river and have
proved their ability to withstand its trying
clsnmte. The oldest man on the Congo in
point of continuous service is Mr.
Legat, who, as an agent of the Congo State,
has been hard at work there for
five years. In that time he has had charge
of tliree different stations, and his health has
invariably been excellent. While in Europe
this spring on a brief vacation the Sanford
Company made him a good offer, and he is
now returning to Africa in its service to
take charge of Lieut. Taunt’s commercial
establishment at Luebo. Seven other men
who have been amoag the best agents of the
Congo State, three of whom Stanley praises
highly in liis last, book for their signal ser
viocs, have taken employment with the San
It is only six .yearn since Stanley invaded
the solitude of Stanley Pool, after strug
gling nearly two years to reach that gate
way to the Upper Congo. Now ten white
establishments, embracing Congo State
stations and trading and missionary posts
here and there, dot the shores of the pool.
The houses are comfortable. Euroiiean veg
etables thrive in the gardens, aud tne savage
wilderness is becoming the home of *civilza
tion and the scene of thrift and industry.
“Give us the railroad,” writes from Leo
poldville an American agent of the Sanford
Company, “and we will build a second Chi
cago here.” Such enthusiasm is likely to
excite a smile. Nevertheless, when
Stanley Pool is made easily accessible, a
network of 7,000 miles of navigable water
ways will be open to the commerce of the
world; and unless all the friends of the great
Congo enterprise are visionary fools there is
a bright future ahead of the settlements at
The large party of engineers which sailed
from Antwerp early last month to survey a
route for the proposed railroad probably
arrived at the Congo aliout June .5. It is
their purpose to divide into three surveying
parties, and follow different routes from
Matadi to Stanley Pool. Arriving at that
point, they will compare notes and decide
upon the best route for tho proposed rail
