It occurred on the evening of July 4, in the Indian Territory, at Medicine Lodge, a point which is a great resort for hunters durinm the colder months. The parties engaged in this desperate fight were Hu'h Ander son of Texas and Arthur McCluskey of Kansas, both desperadoes well known or. the frontih r for their recklessness of life. Anderson had killed a brother of McClus key in a dance-house fracas, and the latter sought him out for the express purpose of taking vengeance upon him. A Texan guide named Richards acted as second for McCluskev, a huge Kentuckian of the name of Harding fulfilling a similar office for Anderson. THE AGREaMENT.
