FACED DEATH TO KESCl E
I WHITE WOMEN CAPTIVES
Thrill?)!? Sforv of General Adam's vis.
it. With One Compmion to Indian
Camp in Wilds of Colorado.
One night, more than thirty years j
ago, a party of Re Indian b'aves at!
the White River agency, Colorado,
swept down upon the agency buildings,'
murdered the agent. Meeker, and every
man t.iev could find: looted the'
r * .
reservation stores, und carried away
captives to the mountains three women
and two children, says the Washing
The nation was horrified at the sudde
ness of the tragedy, as the Ctes;
had been known up to that time us a
peaceful tribe, and had never given1
any trouble under the former agent,1
Gen. Charles Adams, who was on .e
most friendly w rms with their great.
Chief *Auray and others of the ribe.
Hut under Agent Meeker the Indians
had become discontented and threats
were made. Meekpr asked the government
to send\soldiers for his protec
ion. The Indians learned they
were coming and on that very night
the murders occurred.
Panic seized the settlers in that part
of Colorado and hey fled to Denver.
T!:p governor of Colorado, instead of
urging tha; the troops be hurried forward.
asked that they be Ihalted and
that Gon. Adams be sent to mediate
with "he Indians and secure the release
of the captives. The Indians
would murder them if the sdldiers
came, he said.
Gen. Adams, then stationed in New

with all possible haste. Accompanied
by Count Doenhoff, a German nobleman
visiting 'lie west, !he made a forced
ride of 100 miles on horseback to
the Indian's camp in the mountains.
H> re after a campfiro parley in the
dead of night among the pines he succeeded
in securing the release of the
prisoners and the promise of the Indians
to surrender those guil y of the
murders for punishment. It was a

leaving the women to prepare

Chief Douglass arrived with a delega

before th;- council fires were

"That scene 1 shall never f;rget. It
is stamped upon my brain in ineffacable
col ^rs, as I fully realized that it
was quite likely o be tne las I should

it squa ted the Indians, some 2~>
or 30 in number, their faces grim,
watchful and immovable, whilc' 1. with
Count I>>enhoff, sat apart and looked;
at t'.em reproachfully.
"They talked among rhemselves in
t\:e Tte language, of which I knew bu
a few scattering words, all my dis
course with them being carried on in
Spa.isn. Presently Chief Douglas
turned to me and offered me the pipe
ol peace. 1 shook my head.
"I will not smoke he pipe ol peace

and carry off my country vv ;men," 1

looked sullen and once more talked
apart. 1 could see that their 'discussion
wa hot and that opinions varied,;
some of the Indians seeming o angrily

not very heartily, 1 admit, and broke
into thf discussion in Spanish.
" 'You say you will kill Adamus, do
you? Well, that's all righ ; you can,
kill me if you want to; I am a soidier,!
and a soldier expects to die in he dis-1

want to tell you one thing. The soldiers

Silently Count Doenhoff came and j
stood close at my side. Aljr'i in that j
