It is not mentioned that before I passed I on and left him 1 snatched the whip from his I hand and atxuck him with It, which Is his apology I for attacking me afterwards. It ij stated thst he I struck me, on coming up to me, with his whip, I whereas he only had nsture's weapons, and used I nothing but his own bone and muacle. I make I tb a statement In order that justice msy be done the teamster, who Is now In confinement, and cannot speak for himself A note, received from I him since his arrest, Informs me that his name Is I W.
