, the 11th, the camp was to break up. Lyon had no time to lose. On Thursday he attired himself in a dress and shawl and other apparel of Blair's mother-in-law, Mrs. Alexander, and having completed his disguise by hiding his red beard and weather-beaten Brigadier-General D. M. Frost, C. S. A. From a photograph. features under a thickly veiled sun-bonnet, took on his arm a basket, filled, not with eggs, but with loaded revolvers, got into a barouche belonging to Blair's brother-in-law, Franklin A. Dick, and was driven out to Camp Jackson and through it. Returning to the city, he called the Union Safety Committee together, and informed them that he intended to capture the camp the next day. Some of the committee objected, but Blair and James O. Broadhead sustained him, and he ordered his men to be in readiness to move in the morning. Just as they were about to march, Colonel John S. Bowen came to Lyon with a protest from Frost. Lyon refused to receive it, and, marching out to the cam

ched from the beginning by a few vigilant Unionists, who met in secret in the law office of Franklin A. Dick. The gentlemen who attended these meetings were James S. Thomas, now (1865) Mayor of St.r, Oliver D. Filley, James D. Broadhead, Samuel J. Glover, Benjamin Farrar, B. Gratz Brown, Franklin A. Dick, Peter L. Foy, Henry T. Blow, Giles F. Filley, John D. Stevenson, John Doyle, Henry Boernst and a battery of heavy guns were on the north side of the camp. Lyon's staff consisted of Franklin A. Dick, Samuel Simmons, Bernard G. Farrar, and Mr. Conant. Mr. Dick was afterward Provost-Marshal Mr. Dick was afterward Provost-Marshal General of the Department of Missouri under General S. R. Curtis, with the rank of colonel. Guards were placed so as to prevent any communication between the town and the camp. Then Lyon sent a note spared from other scenes of bloodshed during the war.

nor can I conceive, how that did or could injure loyal men or the Union cause. You charge that upon General Curtis being superseded by General Schofield, Franklin A. Dick was superseded by James O. Broadhead as provost-marshal-general. No very specific showing is made as to how this did or could injure the Union cause. It re real additional evil that it could be, and was, plausibly charged to exist in greater extent than it did. When General Curtis took command of the department, Mr. Dick, against whom I never knew anything to allege, had general charge of this system. A controversy in regard to it rapidly grew into almost unmanageable proportionot to ban or brand General Curtis, or to give a victory to any party, I made the change of commander for the department. I now learn that soon after this change Mr. Dick was removed, and that Mr. Broadhead, a gentleman of no less good character, was put in the place. The mere fact of this change is more distinctly complained of

buried by starlight, and the next morning the command moved slowly and sorrowfully southward. Col. John M. Wimer and Col. Emmet MacDonald were citizens of St. Louis. Colonel Wimer had been mayor of the city and was universally respected. Colonel MacDonald was born and reared there, and, though a much younger man than Colonel Wimer, was almost as well known and as highly respected. The bodies of both were taken to the city by their friends for burial. But the provost marshal there, Franklin A. Dick, refused to allow them decent and Christian burial, and had their bodies taken from the houses of their friends at night and buried in unknown and unmarked graves in the common potters' field. The retreat to Arkansas was a severe one. It was now the middle of January, and the weather suddenly became very cold. The change was ushered in by a snow, which lasted ten hours. The snow covered the earth to the depth of nearly two feet, and, freezing on top, made marching difficult and dan
