WHERE CHIEF BLACK
HAWK SOUGHT PEACE
Relics Found That Recall the Famous
Battle of the Bad Axe.
Special to The Globe.
LA CROSSE. Wis., July 21.—The
spot made famous by the big peace
conference of Indian chiefs just prior
to the famous battle of the Bad Axe, in
which Chief Black Hawk, one of the
most famous of old Indian warriors,
and whose last battle is a glowing bit
of Indian history, is believed to have
been found. For decades its exact lo
cation was not known, and traces of it
had been lost, but the discovery of a
pipe of peace of unusual magnificence,
arrow heads and other implements of
war. buried upon such events by the
Indians, has practically established
the spot. .
Just before the battle of the Bad
Axe, twenty miles below La -Crosse,
Chief Black Hawk and his warriors
congregated In a great conference, and
it was decided to make peace with the
whites. The pipes were smoked and
buried, and at dawn messengers were
sent to bear the flajsj of truce.
The flag was never accepted. The
United Statea troops from Prairie dv
Chien rushed upon the band of red
men and slaughtered them. It was
their claim that they knew nothing of
the peace negotiations, and that the
battle, in which the career of the fa
mous chief was ended, was not to be
averted. Nearly the entire band of
Indians was killed. The remaining
reds escaped and all trace of the lo
cality of the peace camp was lost.
Charles Ross, a farmer residing near
Bad Axe, was plowing in his field, and
discovered a round and peculiar ball, as
hard as a bullet and so peculiarly
shaped that it appeared to have been
molded with human hands. He threw
it away after an examination. It
struck a rock and was dashed into a
thousand fragments. The broken clay
revealed inside a peculiar pipe. The
bowl'was of unusual shape. The sock

pipe were several arrow heads, and by
its side a stone tomahawk. Investiga

relics, and all bear the appearance of
having been buried for a purpose and
