A LYNCHING BFB AT RAWLINS,
And the Escape of Joe Chambers From
the Gallo w .
From the ilnil and Express.
■For many years Ogalalla, on the line of
the Union Pacific Railroad, held the dis
tinction of being considered by Western
men the worst place between the oceans un
til Rawlins came into prominence. I passed
one night in Rawlins in the fall of 1878,
and then I came to the conclusion that life
in any other town wonld be tame and with
out excitement in comparison with tho
pleasures which that place could afford.
Ko one alighting from the ears in the quiet
street in Rawlins would believe that the
many stories of bloodshed told of it were
true. On one side of the railroad track
stood a big baj'n-liko building called the
United States Hotel, and on the other a row
of twenty or thirty one-story frame houses,
almost every one of which was a barroom
with a gambling house attached. Over the
uOor hung such signs as "The Cowboys’ Re
treat," “The Divan,” and “The Frontiers
man’s Delight.” Behind the town on the
top of a hill was situated tho city grave
yard ; an immense cross, which could be seen
from a great distance, stood at the top of
the hill and served as a landmark for trav
elers for miles and miles across tho barren
prairies. That graveyard was the pride
of every man that lived in Rawlins. The
inhabitants watched it grow-, and pointed
with pleasure to the fact that there
was hardly a man taking his final rest
thore who had not come to his death hy vio
It was toward afternoon whon I halted
iny horse in front of the United States Hotel
after a forty-mile ride. Heavilv armed men
stood about in groups. The looks thrown at
nio were far from reassuring, but I pretend
ed not to see them, and hastened into the
hotel. Hardly had I taken my seat in the
dining room when four men, evidently
forming a delegation, approached me. They
demanded my business, and what brought
mo to Rawlins, in a way which left me no
alternative but to answer. My answers
seemed satisfactory, and one of them in
formed me tho reason of their curiosity.
They had some idea that I was a Deputy
Sheriff, and frankly told me that if I
bad been I should have been escorted out
of town, as no government officers were
wanted about Rawlins that night. They
further informed me that there was
to be one of the prettiest lynching bees
in town that night that had ever taken
Three men had come to Rawlins ten
weeks before, and had taken the town by
storm. They had made their headquarters
at a tavern almost opposite the hotel, and
had levied a tax on every ope who entered,
Anybody why objected to paying or stand
ing treat was beaten, and when resistance
■was shown pistols were used. Ten men had
received their death wounds from these
three then, and the town had determined to
set an example to all such characters by
lianging the three without further cere
mony. It was not easy, however, to accom
plish this, as they were intrenched in the
barroom and refused to come out or to allow
any one to enter. It had been determined
to dislodge them that night, in spite of all
resistance, and I was invited to take part in
the affair. The three men were named
Joseph Chambers, Jack AVillis, and
Vat Simmons, and were desperate outlaws
with large sums upon their heads.
J ust at dark the citizens at Rawlins pre
pared for battle. The attacking parties were
divided into two forces. One approached the
point of attack from the rear, while the
larger number marched up to the front,
All the citizens wore handkerchiefs over
their faces. I was with the main body of
attackers, or rather behind it. We were
brought to a sudden halt by a rifle shot from
one of the windows of the besieged house,
and one of our leaders fell. Every means
was tried to dislodge the three men, but to
no purpose. Every time the slightest ad
vance was made their rifles rang out, and
someone on our side dropped. At last a
small man slipped up in the shadow of the
adjacent buildings, and threw a lighted can
of kerosene under the building, Soon it be
gan to burn, but still the men would not
come out. At last the house was enveloped
in dames, and the three men were obliged
to make a rush for their lives. They
were half blinded by the heat and smoke
of the burning; so they were quickly cap
Then all of the citizens of Rawlins, not
excepting the women and children, formed
is line aud marched quietly down to the
cattle pens, where an old dead tree stood
which had served several times as a gallows.
A rope had been brought along, and it was
quickly thrown over a branch, and every
thing was ready for the hanging, It was
at first intended to dispose of all three at
tho same time, but there • was not enough
rope, so it was decided to hang one at a time.
Jack Willis was the first to be strung up;
his end was hastened by a dozen bullets
which were fired inlp the body while it was
still withering. AVat Simmons was then
disposed of, and then came the turn of
Joseph Chambers, the leader of the gang.
Just as he was led under the tree he made a
sign that he had something to say. The
gag was removed from his mouth and he
“If you will take this rope from round my
neck and slightly loosen these bonds, I will
tell you men something that will interest
There seemed no danger with so many
on guard, so his request was complied with.
AVlien his fetters were loosened he rose,
stretched himself, and began his speech:
"You are a set of and villains," he
yelled, “and you can all go to h
Ue knocked down tho two men nearest to
him and made a dash for the sago brush on
the open prairie. All the horses were left
outside the barroom when the desperadoes
were captured. Some few men, however,
dashed into the sage after Chambers,
which made it iinjwssible for the men un
der the tree to use their guns lest they hit
some of the pursuers. After an hour’s
useless chase tne hunt was given up for the
A daylight tho next morning a ranch
man rode into Rawlins and electrified the
town by saying that he had seen Chambers
near Fort Fred Steed, sixteen iqifos below.
He said he had just finished his breakfast,
after spending the night at a small house on
the banks of the Platte river, when a hat
less man, whom he recognized as Chambers,
came in and demanded shelter. The ranch
man suspected that something was wrong
from the man’s manner, and at once started
for Rawlins to give the alarm. Thirty men
immediately saddled their horses and started
in pursuit of the man thev had vowed to
hang. As they approached the hut a man
approached tho door with a AVinchester rifle
iu his hand. Without a word he opened fire
on the advancing party. Two men.dropped
from their saddles, and as the rest ot the
party put spurs to their horses and dashed
toward the hut, Chambers, who had done
the shooting, rushed down the hill and
plunged into the Platte. There had been
heavy rains, aud the river was a torrent,
which made it seem impossible that a man
could reach the other side alive. All the
the horsemen, however, drew up along the
bank and waited with guns in readiness to
shoot Chambers, should he by any chance
get across. They waited for half an hour,
and as there was no sight of him they re
turned to 1 a vlins. That afternoon the
other two i e peradoes wore buried in
.what is kuown as murderous’ row, and
beside the grave was placed a board
to the memory of “Joseph Chambers
drowned iu the Platte whilo escaping cap
Two years after leaving Rawlins I chanced
to be in Abilene, Tex. A man passed me on
the street one day whose face was strangely
familiar, T turned to my companion and
asked who it was. “Tnat,” said he, “is
Joe Chambers, one of our most respected
citizens.” Suddenly the scene of the lynch
ing at Rawlins came bock to me, and I knew
that the last t ime I had seen that man he
was standing under a tr> with a rope round
his neck. I told my friend the story, and
he evidently doubted my sanity, if not my
veracity. He told me that Chambers came
to Abilene when the town was first started.
He invested money’ in town lots and made a
fortune. He was a promoter of schools and
churches, and was talked of-for the next
Mayor. That night I was at my hotel when
a tall man with a slouch hat wandered in.
He looked round and then came straight to
me. “Are you the man,” he said, “who has
been telling a yarn about Joe Chambers be
ing lynched?’ ,
I acknowledged that I was.
“Well,’' he replied, “Joe told me to tell
you that he’d shoot you on sight if you were
m town to-morrow.”
Two hours later I was taking a night ride
across the prairies.
JAY GOULD’S SISTER.
She Teaches School and His Old Sweet
heart Keeps a Boarding House.
Philadelphia, Correspondence Chicago Tribune.
The mild-looking, rather petite, but dig
nified woman just passing must have been
quite pretty in her youth, though she never
probably could have beeu called handsome.
There is a certain something,however, about
her—a sweetness in her looks and manner—
that is more charming in a woman of her
years than any remains of physical beauty
would be. She is very simply attired in
black, aud a black bonnet modestly covers
her silvery-gray hair.
Who is she?
She is Jay Gould’s sister. She has come
over from her home in Camden—a quiet
little town across the river—to do some
shopping probably. One often meets her in
the busy streets, but as her identity' is known
to few, she escapes the ogling and comment
that she would otherwise be subjected to.
She is not rich, by any means. Indeed,
aside from a moderate allowance that the
speculating Croesus makes her, she de
rives her living from a school for girls
that her daughters conduct. The school,
it is said, is an excellent one, and, Gould-like,
it gets the cream of the business in South
The school-house was erected at Jay
Gould’s expense. Jay knew that his sister
had not married well from a financial point
of view, and that her daughters were strug
gling for a living, but he was too busy pil
ing up his millions to give the matter much
personal attention. But his wife had her
eye on the girls, and she was so pleased with
their earnestness that she brought, the mat •
ter to the attention of her husband and in
sisted on his building the girls a school.
Gould did not object, and, now that his at
tention was directed to the matter, he gave
orders that no expense should be spared in
making the building a mode, one in every
respect. He himself takes so much pride in
it and in the success of the nieces as any
one whenever he permits himself the luxury
of five minutes’ thought on a subject so far
removed from stocks and bonds. His sister
and the girls were spending part of the sum
mer up at Plattsburg, N. Y., with Jay
Gould’s first love, who keeps a boarding
house up there. She is elderly and gray
haired now’, and is not strikingly hand
some, but in her day she was blithesome and
pretty. She was the daughter of a country
store-keeper. Jay Gould, after leaving his
father’s farm, went to work in the store,
and promptly fell in love with the rosy -
cheeked maiden. But the old man had much
higher views of his daughter’s future than
a marriage with a young man in his own
shop would realize. He not only gave young
Gould to understand that a marriage was
out of tho question, but dispensed with his
service as well. Jay took his rejection
philosophically enough and gave himself up
to the work of making a fortune. While
he was growing richer and richer and piling
million on million his old love was vainly
trying to battle with misfortune. Her
father, who had plumed himself so proudly
on the ownership of his “general store,”
failed, the husband whom she took after
Jay Gould had gone away brought little to
her: and at the end she endeavors to eke eut
an income by opening her house to summer
boarders. She has a wondrous amount of
philosophy in her make up and very little
envy. She is bright, good-natured and con
tented with what fortune has brought—or
ought one to say left—her. Some of Jay
Gould’s relatives spend a few weeks at her
farm-house every year, but Jay himself
never goes there.
SOME FACTS ABOUT ALCOHOL.
Its Effect on Health and Morality.
The following statements made by M. de
Flaix are deserving, says a medical journal,
tho consideration of students of the alcohol
question. M. de Flaix says: “The birth
rate is less and the mortality greater in the
departments where the consumption of
alcohol is small; that neither crime nor
suicide is in proportion to alcoholic con
sumption. Thus in the Seine-Inferieure the
consumption of alcohol is three times that
in the Nord; but suicide is only twice as
frequent. In the Pas-de-Calais the con
sumption is twice as great as that of the
Nord, while suicide is two and a half times
less. In the Seine-et-Oise the con
sumption is one-half less than
that of the Seine-Inferieure, but
suicide in the former is twice that of the
latter.” Comparing different nations, he
says: “France consumes less alcohol than
the United Kingdom; its birth-rato is less,
and its mortality, criminality and suicide
rates are greater. Italy consumes very little
alcohol; its criminality is appalling ;rffra
i/ante). Spain consumes three times less
alcohol than Italy; its criminality is double.
Sweden, Denmark and Norway, with a
population of about one-third, consume
four times the quantity of alcohol con
sumed in Italy, and yet the criminality of
the former is very small, while that of the
latter is appalling (effrayan te) . Russia con
sumes four times the alcohol of France; its
birth rate is almost double. Thus, all the
hypotheses are upset; the most vigorous,
the richest, and the most moral of the na
tions are those which consume most alcohol.
The prediction that alcohol will destroy
civilization and the human race is not sup
ported by facts. If France, whose vitality
is undergoing a crisis, were among the na
tions which consume most alcohol, she
would serve as an excellent argument; but
the consumption of alcohol by France is
moderate, and it has been established al
ready that those parts of France are the most
vigorous where the consumption.of alcohol
