PRISONERS OF WAR
A Kentucky Missionary Writes
Entertainingly of the Indian
Reservation in Oklahoma
i THE APACHE IN WAR AND PEACE
f By MIss Maud AdkIsson of Quston Ky I
At your request I send a short sketch
of the Apache Indians and why this
band are prisoners of war
In May 18S3 Ihlugj had come to a
bad paaa at the Apache agency at San
Carlos Arizona Because of the lack of
harmony between the War Department
and tbo Department of the Interior
Gen Crook that prince of Indian manip
ulator lial asked to be relieved of his
command discipline had been relaxed
and the Apaches nffecUd by the under
taintv of the governments policy had
grown bod and reckless
nroodin over wrongs some of which
we nough others exaggerated or
fancied a group of those men whose
names are famllhr to all army men
fithereJ together in council drank too
deeply of Tizroln their native liquor
until fearing punishment and driven on
by their restless spirit they broke away
by iiiKbl from their reservation one
hundred and twenty four men women
and children in alland Ibd to the wild
faslntasea of the Sierra Mndrne The
two leaders were the now famous Geron
Imo Medicine Chief and Naiche the
War Chief who though Iras well known
played as important a part In the events
which follow as did Geronlmo
Geronimo was short thickset hut
spare and of great endurance General
Miles says of him He was one of the
brightest most resolute determined
looking men that I have ever tncoun
tered lie had the clearest sharpest
dark eyes I think I have evereeen unless
it were those of Gen Sherman when he
was at the prime of life and just at the
close of the great war Every movement
indicated pjwer energy and determina
tion In everything he did he had a
purpose The description still pictures
the old chief as he comm to visit our
school and regardless of invitations
walks through our private rooms closely
examining each object with his sharp
eyes as he placidly seats himself in the
most comfortable rocker in the mean
time giving us a clear example of the
above Lamed purpose when being
offered some candy from a small sack he
put in his hand and took all of it Pro
longed activity and old age have done
something toward taming both his spirit
and demeanor
Kaiche was the hereditary chief of the
Chihuahuas a man of tall and command
ing presence and a physique of iron It
is sad that in these old bloody days he
ehowed himself a born leader of men
ln < flefiniMe in the campaign and a
whirlwind in Little Of the other chiefs
Cli u ilma pronounced Chiwhawah
was with the hostiles while Chato and
Nuuhe gavn luot fflloient aid to the
military as scouts It is not my inten
tion to tell the terrible story of the war
which fallowed
The Chiricahua Apaches had always
shown tKemuelveH veritable Hands in
cruelty and ferucity and now after years
of restraint their worst passion broke
loose null their hideous and bloody
atrocities are too horrible to relate So
swift were thnr movements and so ex
tended their operations that the whole
frontier of Arizina New Mexico ai d
Northern Mexico were terror stricken
The military prang to its duty nobly
first under Gen Crook and later under
Gen Miles the campaign was carried on
with a vigor that seems incredible
Names which a grateful nation has de
lighted to honor during this last event
ful year and a half began to make them
selves famous for gallant service among
the Sierra Madres Officers Ghaflee
Lawton and Leonard Wood showed amid
the hardships of the Indian campaigning
those same qualities of courage energy
and generalship which contributed so
much to the success of American arms
before the fortifications of Santiago All
bear testimony to the terrible character
of this war The great ruggedness of the
country combined with wlllness endur
ance and desperation of the Apaches
rendered military operations exceedingly
difficult It is reported that the women
would bind their children and packs
upon their backs and run trom sixty to
seventyfive miles a day defying every
effort of the cavalry to overtake them
After about a year of the war path
Chihuahua surrendered to Gen Crook
and five months later Geronimo and
Nalcbe gave themselves up to Gen Miles
By order from the Department not only
the hostiles but many friendly ChI rica
mas and even men like Chato Kieta
Martinez who had fought most faithfully
against the hostiles during the war were
transported to Florida and thera impris
coned in the dungeons of old Fort Pickens
The damp climate of this place proving
fatal to many of them they wore finally
i
x101
removed to Fort Sill where they now
are They are about three hundred in
number and aro nominally prisoners of
war unJer the control of the War De
partment being Eettlrd on a reservation
six miles tqaaro near the fort but in
reality they ave almost perfect freedom
The Dutch Reformed Presbyterian
Church 01 New York city through Rev
Frank Hall Wright who is himself half
Indian established here 1 little less than
a year ago the Apache Mission After
the house was built and furnished it was
found inadequate for the work thereby
necessitating Mr Wrights making a trip
to New York to raise two thousand dol
lars for anew building This he did ill
about six weeks and no A a five room
cottage is going up with a sewing room
and a room for my interpreter attached
The part of the house we now occupy
will be used for a kindergarten
We count it a great privilege to work
with and for thesi people and only last
evening Nalche the mot hlluential
chief of all told Mr Wright that he
wants to walk in the Jeeus road Jt Doro
thy the daughter of Naiche is my inter
preter and Ramona Chihuahuas daugh
ter is a Christian so you can fee how
readily we can approach them
While these men were in prison at
Fort Pickens their little children were
sent to the great industrial school for
Indians at Carlysle Ienu where they
learned to be wholly independent
Many of them are fine young people
interesting and entertaining
We feel perfectly secure here and
deep peacefully with windows and doors
unbarred Until my mother came Miss
Moseley our little Comanche girl and I
often spent nights alone and enJoyed it
too
I enclose a picture of Geronlmo in his
fighting cap also some Apache head
work made by a woman on this reserva
tion
With best wishes for your success and
the perpetuation of the NEWS I urn
Sincerely
MAUD ADKISSON
The 1olltc Iullcuinnii
It was crowded on the avenue and
there was a constant stream of veil
cles coming and going At the crossing
of two of tho most congested streets
stood a police otllccr tall and com
manding Irreproachably dressed and
with an eye that compelled obedience
When the tide of travel surged thick
est a little old lady came to the curb
and looked out Into tho Impassable
stream of carriages and wagons Evi
deafly she wanted to get across The
gallantry of the big policeman took
possession of him lIe approached her
and held up his hand
Dont be afraid Ill see that you
get across safely he said
The old lady shook her head nerv
ously and seemed more undecided than
ever The policeman came nearer
Taking her arm he started to lead her
across stopping the steady stream of
passersby In wagons and carts Tho
old lady hung back protesting When
the slow way to tho other sldo of the
street had hern made the officer re
leased her arm She looked at him In
n dazed way and said with some sharp
ness What on earth did you want to
drag me across that road for I had
nn errand to do on the other side

Proved Ilia Theory
Tbe late Hull McAllister some years
ago entertained a visiting scientist at
the Union club before Its amalgama
tion with the Pacific and during tho
evening a particularly foggy one
made some whimsical remark convey
ing the Idea that fog was an excellent
conductor of sound
The scientist took exception to this
novel theory ant asked Mr McAllister
on what It was based
On phenomena which we have all
observed returned the ready Jurist
On an evening like this we hear the
fog horn quite distinctly but when
there Is no fog we cannot hear It at
