INDIANS MAKING THREATS.
Another Uprising of Minnesota Reds
Feared with Coming orf sp ing.
Detroit, Minn., Jan. 22.--Lhe wife
of a missionary who for a number of
years has been located at Gull lake,
thirty miles from here and near the
scene of the late Chippewa uprising,
said today that the Indians are not yet
through, and that , by spring there will
be another and greater uprising, if
their demands are not complied with
The full-blooded Indians resent the
peace made with Commissioner Jones,
claiming that it was made by the half
bloods in the so-called timber clique.
They demand that no rights for cutting
timber be granted, and that they he
given more rations. They are getting
more sullen all the time and more dis
contented. They threaten that if they
rise they will wipe the whites out in
the spring. Since President McKinley
pardoned the Indians concerned in the
Leach lake massacre Ithey have been
more defiant and impudent. It is be
lieved here that the president's clem
ency was a mistake, as it has simply
given the Indians an inflated idea of
their own powers and importance.

'HE DID NOT WEAKEN
Tom Salmon Was Hanged at Red
Lodge at Daybreak This
SAID THERE IS NO GOD
And Died Without a Protest and Evi
dently Without Fear of the
Special to The Gazette.
Red Lodge, Jan. 27.-The murder of
Wm. O'Connor, superintendent of the
Rocky Fork coal mines, was this morn
ing, at break of day, judicially avenged
when Thomas Salmon was executed in
the jail yard by Sheriff Dunn. The
doomed man went to his death with
perfect composure and an exhibiti6n of
nerve seldom witnessed and never
surpassed among those who have met
a like fate.
Salmon made a statement yesterday
to Austin North of Billings, special
reporter for the Times, who came up at
the earnest request of the condemned.
He slept' soundly last night, ate a
hearty breakfast and just before being
led out to the scaffold preached, as he
said, his own funeral sermon. He
said. by way of introductory: .
"Gentlemen, you have assembled
here this morning to pay your respects
to a friend who is about to go to that
everlasting shore to which many have
gone before. I want no priest, or min
ister, or sky pilot. If there is a God
he would not now allow me to speak."
In conclusion Salmon bade all fare
well, saying: "Good-bye, good-bye,
good-bye." The doomed man walked
with head erect and firm step and
tripped quickly and lightly up the steps
and took his place on the trap. The
straps were adjusted, the black cap
drawn down, tile noose fixed and the
trap sprung within a minute and a half
from the time of leaving the jail door.
Not a word was spoken and Salmon
died without a single protest. His
neck was broken and the dead man cut
down in fourteen minutes.

J. B. Platt was the owner of an Irish
setter, which he prized very highly
and estimated to be worth the sum of
$100. On the twelfth day of this
month the dog wandered away from
home, as all dogs will do occasionally,
and behaving in an unseeming manner,
was shot and killed near, the Burling
ton round house by one Otis O. Boyer.
Mr. Platt caused a warrant to be issued
for the arrest of Boyer, charging him
with malicioius mischief. Boyer was
arrested and the trial was set for
Wednesday afternoon. The state was
represented by Deputy County Attorney
J. H. Johnston, while R. T. Allen de

examined, among themin being a little
boy and girl, who were witnesses of the
killing of the dog. The case was
