I'd like to tell you about one of them who roamed the Pa: .ific Northwest during the years -of the Civil War. There are some problems in dealing with him t}ecause many..-of the stories about him are in ghat never- never land between legend and 1act. Also I was strongly pro. :Southern in his sympathies, Snd it is possible that he .was actual- ly. working as an agent of the <nfedoracy, and most of the yarns ab0dt! ,re-toIfl by n- .hern synpathize. perado men. Five of the brothers have been killed from time to time in bloody enoounters with men of like character." .Helm was held in the Olympia jail for several months, then there appeared a notice in the Overlan& Press of that city tell- ing of his escape: "lEFT -- Boone Helm, for some time past one of the dis- tinguished guests of She .Hotel de Block-house, left about noon one day last week for parts un- known." ,Boone Helm emigrated to the California mines in 1859, having,' it was said, committed murder in Missouri.

After the escape from the ely. mpia "Hotel de Block-house," Boone Helm seems to have gone north to British Columbia where the country soon became too hot to hold him. He spent a winter in a lonely cabin in the Rogue River Valley near the old Call fornia - Oregon trail. He later tried to kill the man who had saved itfls life and had put him up for the winter there. The Montana mines attracted him in 1863, and he went to Virginia City, Montana, where he joined the notorious Henry Plummer gang af "road agents." He was hanged by the vigilarttes on Jan- uary 14, 1864, with the words on his lips, ."Every man for his principles. Hurrah for Jeff Davis! Lot her rip!" If you go to Virginia City to. day, you may see the graves of Boone Helm and the rest of the Plummer gang. There are neat wooden head markers for each of them; in fact, new markers are placed there every once in a while so the tourists won't be disappointed.
