New Proof That the Shooting
Was Deliberate Murder.
NO EXCUSE EOB THE DEED
Letter Dictated by a Bannock Indian
Woman to tlio "White Woman
CliloC" Gives Sickening Details of
tbe Outrage by Settlers at Jack
Marysmcre Ranch, Jackson Lake, Wyo,
Aug. 21. Added proot tbat the troubles
at Jncksou's Hole were tbe result of a cruel
outrage upon the Bannock Indians, and not
of an uprising against the whites by that
small band ot red men, is furnished by
Mrs. John D. Sargent, wire of the famous
Yellowstone Park guide.
Mrs. Sargent; whose home for years has
been op the shores of the lake, has Just ar
rived here after traveling witboutescortfor
a week nearly tbe whole length of the
valley, some fifty miles. 8be says she is
confident that there has not been an Indian
in Jackson's Hole all summer.
"Tbe scare was precipitated," she fays,
"by the reckless cruelty of the Jackson's
Hole posce, deputized in July to atresl In
dians found hunting In violation of the
Wyoming law. These depuUes went Into
Hoback Basin, fifty miles beyond tbe Juris
diction of the Jackson's Hole Justice of tbe
peace, who deputized tbini. Thej sur
prised anil arrested a camp of Bannocks,
started back- with their prisoners to Jack
son's Hole, and when thelndiansatttinpted
to escape they were shot down."
Mrs. Sargent says that tbe Bannocks have
great respect for the treaty between them
selves and the Goternment at Washington,
and SJ s that they cannot understand how
it is that Wjoming law can prevent tl.em
from hunting gam, when the treaty stipu
lates that they may. Mrs. Sargent sajs
further that the while settlers in Jack
son's Holo hae not the respect for the
game laws of Wyoming which they would
force the Indians to have, as Is evidenced
whenever they get a "dude" hunting party
from the East, who will pay a good price
for good sport.
"WHITE WOMAN CHIEF."
New York, Aug. 21. Mrs. narrlet Max
well Converse has received a letter from the
Jackson's Holo region, addressed to her
as "The White Woman CIilef,"and written
by a friend, at the dictation of a Bannock
Indian woman. Tbe Indian woman
6peaks for the remnant of her tribe in
a most paUietic manner, and graphically
describes the shooting of Uie Indians In
"There Is not one word 6f truth in
tho report about the Bannocks going on
the war path," writes this woman.
"There are no more friendly people than
they are. If they were nor they would
not hao permitted the 'pale faces' to
kill their people without having avenged
the outrage. DuriDg the scare they
could hae killed every white person at
Jackson's Holo and gone back to their
reservatiou before any ouulde help could
have come to the rescue.
"It has always been the custom of the
Indians to go on the bunt before they be
gin their haying. They do not get enough
weekly supplies 'from the Government to
last one day, so they muBt lay In provisions.
This year the Indian farms bade fair for
good harvest, but the whites took all the
water from them, and now their crops are
drying up The Bannock Indians wish to
know what the White Woman Chief, who
lives 'where the sun gets up, thinks about
"I would say that Jackson's Hole is the
meeting place for all sorts of bad men. One
of tbe men who captured and shot the Ban
nocks was a well known horselhlef. Here
is the story of Wanlna, the mother of Jfe
maru. a Bannock Indian, who was out with
the bunting party that was fired upon by
tbe posse of deputies, and who saw her boy
"The white men were seen in tbe evening
bcrore, but as we bad done nothing wrong,
none of us were alarmed. We were out
hunting, troubling nobody. In the morning.
Just as light was beginning to come, one of
our parly shouted that we w ere surrounded
by white men. As we were only hunting,
we thought it was nil rigbt. We got up
and commenced getting our breakfast.
Then the white men came, about forty, I
think, and told us that they were going to
arrest us. They had their guns in position
to fire. They came in our tents and tore
everything to pieces , looking for guns. They
told us to hurry up as they were going to
" "Then we bewin to get scared, because
we thought tlie wild white men were going
to kill us nlL We travelled along, two
white men and one Indian, until late in
the afternoon, when we had to stop so the
white men could get Uieir dinner. They
told us to get our dinner, too, as after tbat
they were going to tie our hands behind our
backs. O ne of our bra es said that if they
got us up towanl Jackson's Hole they
would kill etery one of us, and nobody
would eer know what became of us; but
that if we ran away some one of us would
get back to the agency and tell the story.
" 'So, when we got near the big timber,
my boy, Nemartz, stood near me aud told
mo to ride ahead, as we were near the place
whre tbe Indians were all going to break
for liberty. Tbat was the last word I e er
beard my boy speak. My boy was the first
one shot. We all ran, and tbe white men
kept on shooting at us. None ot our peo
ple bad gune. One of our old men was
d"af , and did not know what was golug on.
When we'ran be Was behind. One white
man held bis horse ond.onother one killed
him. One Indian woman, who was run
ning, dropped "her baby, one month old,
and It was killed. One little boy, 2 years
old, was lost, and we thought blip killed,
but soma one found him and took him to
" 'Why we should be killed wc do not
know. We had nothing but good feeling
in our hearts for the white men. We were
hungry for some meat, and we went to hunt
for it. Tbe Great Spirit gave us deer long
before the white man ever saw this land.
When the white man came and wanted our
country wc made a big talk, and our father
in Washington told us we could hunt the
deer as long as tbe game lasted. We never
stopped tbe white man from hunting for
something to eat. Why is he so mean to us?'
"The Indians were wild with frlgbt
when tbe troops came," Mis. Converse's
correspondent adds. "They were told
tbat the troops would kill all the Indians
and open the reservation to tbe whites."

IIIS DEED VALID.
Judge Cole Benders a Decision In tbe
' Judge Cole this morning delivered bis
opinion in the case of William M. Starr, tho
herb doctor, against Marshal A. A. -Wilson.
He granted a restraining order, preventing
tbe marshal from deeding away certain
property belonging to Starr until it can be
decided in a court ot equity whether tbe
marshal has the rigbt to make a legal deed
to the property.
ColliT C. Frayser, in 1879, cntered'into
a number of contracts with the Government
for the canylng of mall over certain routes.
Dr. Starr and George F. Mason went on bis
bond. Fra) sor sublet a number ot the con
tracts. The subcontractors were In detault in
tho execution of their contract, and in 1883
tbe Government brought suit against Fray
ser and his bondsmen. Frayser was drop
ped from the case In 1885, but Dr. Starr's
coun-i"! contended that there was no rea
son for bis dismissal. '
Three years later a Judgment by de
fault was rendered against Mason and
No execution was levied from 1880 to
1895. Then It was learned, it Is raid, that
Br. Htarr had property of his own.
The property was immediately attached
and the oartbal delivered a temporary
deed ot sale to the government, tbe only
bidder. Tbe petitioner's counsel ucld-
tbat the execution on the Judgment se
cured back In 1888 was Invalid because
it was not levied and renewed within
the first and each subsequent year, and a
day utter the Judgment.
Judge Cole held this morning, however,
that the gocrumenl cannot Jsc Imputed
with laches and that fact would not
bar the marshal from copmlctlug tbe ex
ecution. A deed the ninrtbal would make
would not therefore be void, he held.
His ability might depend, how ever, on the
fact that the goeniuicnt was said to
bac agreed to dismiss the contractors
and bold the sub-contractor liable.

There was an unusually large number of
Juvenile offenders in the dock in Judge
Scott's court this morning, and their youth
ful propensities for throwing stones was
what got most of them into trouble.
The rirsl boy, charged with breaking a
window, was Hklard Johnson, and Henry
Wah was the complainant. Across-eyed
Chinaman who rigured in the former Chinese

tbat his friend could not speak English.
Throughthe interpreter Wah stated tbat

chased him out the would be purloiner
of coin threw a stono'through the window

Harry Alexander was also charged with

asked Mr. Pugb.
"I -never tnrow'd nary one," answered
The boy's mother was In court and she
was called. ,
, J' Will -you take this boy home and give
Lira a whipping if I let him off?" asked
" i'es. Indeed, I will, and agood one, too,"
answered the mother, vehemently.
Tbe jouttiful prisoner was evidently
