X. K. STOUT LEAVES AGAIN
The resignation of X. K. Stout
as county attorney was filed with
the county commissioners, to take
effect Sept. I.
Mr. Stout left Kalispell last
Thutrsday night and apparently
weqt through Butte, as his resig
i nation was forwarded from that
point, but it is believed that he
went to some point outside the
state. His destination, however,
is unknown to anyone here.
This is the second time that Mr.
Stout has left Montana recently
with the intention of never return
ing, and it is probable that he has
left for good this time.
Early in April he left Kalispell
quietly without telling any one
where he was going and proceeded
to San Franci-co, where he joined
m Mrs. Bergwald, a former resident
of Kalispell. Mr. Stout was for
merly court reporter under Judge
D. F. Smith, and, having a friend
ly interest in his welfare, Judge
.Smith persuaded him to leave the
t woman and return to Kalispell.
I He was reappointed to the position
of county attorney made vacant by
his departure and took up his law
practice where he had left it off.
Shortly after his return Mrs. Stout
left for a long visit in the east and
while nothing was said openly
about the affair it was known quite
generally, and it is probable that
the coolness of former friends was
partly responsible for Mr. Stout's

The Sublime Courage Shown by
an American Indian.
WILLING TO DIE FOR ANOTHER.
r- Story of a Dramatio Episode In Which
the Iowa and Musquakie Tribes
e Figured-Heroiem That Won the
e Admiration of the Enemy.
ie A striking story of the courage and
self sacriflce of which the American
oe Indian at his best is capable is given
by O. H. Mills in the Des Moines Reg
ister and Leader. It was told to the
white men by the famous Sac chief,
r Black Hawk, who himself saw the in
It all began with an unfortunate
quarrel between an Iowa and a Mus
quakie, in which the latter killed the
former and then in a moment of fren
f zy scalped his victim. The two tribes
were at peace, and this act, allowable
only in time of war, was, in Indian
eyes, an intolerable breach of good
''The Musquakies offered all sorts of
reparation, but the lowas would ac
cept nothing but the person of the of
fender, to be tortured and put to death
in propitiation of the outraged spirit
of the dead man. To this the Musqua
kies agreed on condition that the cul
prit be given a month to fortify him
self for his terrible ordeal. But just
as the month was about to expire he
fell ill with a raging fever. In that
condition he could not be carried across
the prairie, but a failure to produce
him at the appointed place would
arouse the suspicions and perhaps the
hostility ot the lowas.
A council was called to debate the
matter, before which appeared Cono, a
brother of the sick man. "There are
no squaw men in our family," he de
clared. "I will go in his place."
The others tried to dissuade him and
described to him the tortures he would
have to undergo, but he insisted upon d
making the sacrifice. Accordingly an t
escort was selected to accompany him,
at the head of which Black Hawk,
then a young but widely respected t
chief, was placed.
"I never saw a more pathetic scene," a
said Black Hawk, "than the parting of it
Cono and his father and mother and c
other relatives. The whole tribe was
overwhelmed with gloom." a
In the middle of the afternoon the
party arrived at the lowas' village. co
Cono had asked that his identity should
not be disclosed, but one of the lowas
who was present at the time the young a
Indian was slain saw that the guilty g
party was not being delivered, and B
Black Hawk told the whole story. The
Iowas accepted it as true and, after a
brief council, consented to the arrange
ment. The death circle was staked out
and patrolled with armed guards, and
Cono was placed in its center, while
his escort was entertained in the tepee
of the chief. It was a chill November
day, and the sun was just sinking be
hind the cliffs of the Des Moines river
when the escort left the camn.
They paused on a hill about a half
mile distant from the camp. They
could see that the fires had been lighted
round the death circle, and in the hush
of the evening came the plaintive
sound of Cono chanting his death song
Having traveled some two hours,
they halted and made camp. About
milanight they heard the clatter of
horses' feet, and in a. moment more a
single horseman rode up. It was Cono!
This was his remarkable story:
The fires of the death circle were
burning brightly, and the squaws with
their burning sticks were preparing to
make the first attempt to extort a cry
of pain and agony, when an old man,
the father of the dead Indian, raised
"Stop!" he said. "Let me speak. I
am the one that has suffered. My son
was killed and scalped by a Musqua
kie. I was hungry for revenge,and were
the one that killed and scalped him
here I would shout with joy at his
torture. But this young man is brave.
Never have I seen such bravery before.
Be is too good a man to torture and
kill. Release him and let him return
to his own people."
Although the entire village a few
bours before had been eager for re
venge, there was a murmur of approv
Ii as the old man gathered his blanket
about him and took his seat. Without
ny one's making a single objection,
Jono was removed from the circle and
riven food and drink. A few hours

ALL PASSES RECALLED
Helena, Aug 24-The Great Nor
thern and Northern Pacific railroad
y companies have revoked all passes
issued to Montana state officials
and their deputies, numbering
about 6oo, and it is expected that
the other roads operating through
hthe state will take like action.
h All who have been provided with
* passes have been requested to
turn them in, with the notice that
Iconductors have been instructed
i not to honor them. This deter
mination to cancel passes is predi
cated upon the decision of the in
terstate commerce commission in
the case of Colorado. where the
conditions are very similar to those
in Montana, and by advice of their
attorneys. In Colorado the inter
state commerce commission gave
the railroads to understand that
plans to advance rates would be dis
allowed whenever it appeared to
the commission that the carrier
was wasting its revenue by issuing
free transportation when not re
quired to. There is now pending
before the commission a new sched
ule of rates, filed by the transcon
tinental railroads operating in Mon
tana. State officials believe this
fact, together with the decision in
the Colorado cases, was responsi
ble for the revocation of the passes.
State officials are authorized by law
to accept passes.
