San Antonio Daily Light (Newspaper) - November 7, 1891, San Antonio, Texas She sails sight saturday november 7, 1891. Two types of Bai men the real thing is imitated by the plated article. Sometimes it is Hart to Tell them apart though and Iii experimenting one is liable to Kiln up against the wrong kind two striking examples. A bad men in the West break into two said a gentleman late of Silver City a the sure enough and the imitation bad Man. One is a killer and the other simply clusters. The two sorts look alike talk alike garb themselves in big hats Belt guns on their hips swear and guzzle and follow each other s suit from first to last for which reasons it is hard to Tell the real thing from the counterfeit. The Only sure Way of distinguishing the True solid Silver bad Man from the plated fellow is to test them As fast As presented. A russian Bill who in the Early eighties wis a rustler in the Valley of ban Simon in Arizona and a singularly industrious horse and cattle stealer of that shameless Region was an imitation bad Man. He was a great talker and hear him Tell it had filled More Graves than an epidemic. It is doubtful however if he Ever Drew human blood and the other a rustlers similarly regarded him As a Luau of no courage. It turned out a Case of the Magpie and the peacocks with the russian though for one evening the impulsive denizens of Shakespeare a. T., took Bill sword for i and continent ally Hung him de Bene Esse. A the russian had company though for they stretched another gentleman time and tree the same a slept Sandy King. There was no discount however on King. One could have taken a Brace and bit and bored Clear through him and struck nothing but clean Strain game. King and russian Bill were together on the occasion of their apprehension and taking Oft and were decided specimens of the two types of bad men. Tuk Nami of Bill a Bill a a name has been the property of a Good Many of the fighters of the West frequently some affix or prefix went with it to keep the blood Bede wed Bills from getting All mixed up. There have been a curly Bill a wild Bill a Navajo Bill a Buffalo Bill a poker Bill a Cheyenne Bill a French Bill an Antelope Bill a russian Bill a Broncho Bill. A Canadian Bill a Monte Bill a Butcher knife Bill and Bill Bonney or Billy Hie kid that i have known of. A Cheyenne Bill was and is one of the false killers referred to. Aud always trying to a run a Blazer upon some Tenderfoot and scare him to death. Raton n. a a Ahtoon a does not As a Community Rise Early of a sunday morning and As i once Back in 1886, came out of the hotel in the still and Early hours of that holy Day i heard a a voice Over on tile Hest Street raised to a in Point Between a threat and a command. Aly attention was at once attracted and getting out where i could see i found Cheyenne Bill in slow but threatening Pursuit of a reluctant Tenderfoot who had come in on the train the night before. What the Row was about i did no to know. % a a Slop whar you be or Iti pull on you commanded the Vaporis Bill in a fierce tone his hand on his six shooter and following along after the stranger some two rods behind. A a to give the Tenderfoot his due while he kept walking away from Bill he appeared More disgusted than scared and while be said nothing and did not turn on his would be captor nevertheless he received his orders to halt with becoming contempt Aud on. Bill Ano tub Tenderfoot. A except for my presence Cheyenne and his victim had the town to themselves Jack i sen Haugh the marshal and the rest of the citizens being sensibly in bed. I had seen a chinaman run Cheyenne around once Over in Trinidad and knew there was no More to lie feared from him Thau from the last calf on the Range and shouting Over to him i so informed the person from the East and advised him to go after the Doughty Chey Enne Aud pull his head Oft. The tender foot had about made up his mind to do it anyhow and my vote settled it. He turned and started for Bill whereupon that person at once lost All his valor and fled briefly. A the Tenderfoot caught up with him however and cased his surcharged soul by three or four forceful and very meritorious kicks. This seemed to do both Bill and the shorthorn a world of Good and the former avoided the fifth by plunging up a stairway. The Tenderfoot wanted to charge after Bill and kill him completely but i urged a different View and pointed out the fact that Bill took his gun with him and that if he found himself cornered he might shoot. A curly Bill was another of the riot Ous and desperate sort. His Range in 1881 and 1882 was southwestern new Mexico and Eastern Arizona. No one knew where curly Bill hailed from but if there a truth in scripture where he was going was Plain to All. He was reputed when i saw him to have killed Nineteen men an 6<�<i Hsy of one who wha looking Nard tor a Eunee to make it a score. Curly Bill has found his grave somewhere out in the and wastes he paroled As nothing has Litten heard of him for some City Star. Gave himself away. One Day in a Chat with a Friend he said to me a Wuhs it Ever occurred to you that when old age deprives you of much of your present ability to earn a living you will be obliged to look to your friends for support or else become a charge at some one of the Cha table institutions i confess i am neither a Money maker nor a Money Saver but a it is dollars to doughnuts that the person who thus twisted me of my weakness simply echoed As he did so the general plan which he.
