The following: description of an exciting;
vent, which, at the time.excited wide spread
attention, forma an interesting: chapter in
Caps. E. W. Gould's work on "The Naviga
tion of Western Waters":
Perhaps no river in the Valley of the Mis
sissippi has been the scene of so many thrill
ing events, Indian fights, steamboat wrecks,
hairbreadth escapes and perils from naviga
tion as has the Missouri.
Previous to the discovery of gold In Mon
tana the American Far company and its con
temporaries and predecessors in the fur trade
monopolised about all the traffic there was
above Sioux City, commencing soon after,
the Introduction of steam, in 1S19, with one
boat per annum, adding another from time
to time as their trade extended up the river.
The arrival or departure from St. Louis of
a "mountan boat" created about as much ex
citement and curiosity at that time as did
that of a Pevonge or Mackinaw boat loaded
with skins and peltries at an earlier data,
While the Indians were at peace with each
other, the steamboat's annual trip was looked
forward to by them with pleasure and great
anxiety, as it was their source of supplies,
and of them Indians are always short.
ACTORS r THX TRAGEDY.
The Rev. Father De Hrnet, for many years
a missionary and general manager of Catho
lic missions among the Indians of the north
. west, was not unfrequently a passenger on
these pioneer boats.
The black gown which he always wore in
the presence of Indians Inspired In them
great veneration, as the representative of
the Great Spirit. His amiable and suave
manner always assured them, as it did every
one else, that no evil could befall them in his
presence, and he was, when known to be
near, a constant check upon their habits of
dissipation, quarrels and hostilities.
No matter how fierce the feuds between
different tribes, he went fearlessly from one
to the other to allay any commotion or fight
and was always respected.
The writer saw this practically illustrated
while tying at the mouth of Milk river, sotne
200 miles below Fort Benton, in 1864.
At that time the Sioux Indians were at
war with the United States and with many
tribes of Indiana Their country bordered
the Missouri river for many miles and navi
gation was not considered very safe. Boats
were occasionally fired into when running
close to shore, and when lying up at
night always kept a picket guard, and the
pilot was protected by shields of boiler
iron when under way. This was a very low
water year and we were two months getting
to the mouth of Milk river, where we were
obliged to store our cargo. While lying there
a tragic event occurred, through which, bad
it not been for the presence of Father De
Smet, the steamer Nellie Rogers and prob
ably some of her crew wouldliave been sacri
ficed for the cruel and unprovoked murder of
young McKeDzie.the son of a prominent mer
chant of St. Louis, whom many St. Lou leans
will remember as a very estimable gentle
man. He at one time was an Indian trader
on the Upper Missouri.
He bad married a squaw, Indian fashion,
and raised a family of half breeds, a part of
which he took to the states and educated.
This young man, then about 80 years old, had
returned to bis tribe, the Crows, married
and was living at Fort Peck, acting, perhaps,
in the capacity of interpreter. He, with his
wife and one young child, together with a
large number of Indians of both sexes and of
all ages, had encamped on the bank opposite
where the boat was discharging. They all
had access to the boat and were constantly
passing to and fro.
But as the bar on the boat had been closed
by Mr. Chouteau's order, who had the boat
under charter, no excessive drinking was
allowed. There had been on board as a pas
senger all the way from St. Louis a Mr.
Clark, formerly from Philadelphia, a quiet,
gentlemanly man of education, who for the
previous ten or twelve years had been living
among the Indians principally at Fort Ben
ton. THX 1T0BOEB AXD FUOBT.
After the boat had been lying there several
hours McKenzie came on board with others
and stepped into the cabin, and Just as he got
abreast of the stove in the hall, Clark stepped
out of his state room, which was one of the
finest rooms tn the cabin, with pistol in hand,
and without a word from either of them, in
stantly fired and McKenzie fell, shot through
His wife was one of the first who rushed on
board, with many of her kindred and friends,
and the excitement soon became Intense on
the part of the Indians, for the sudden death
of a prominent member of their tribe; on the
part of the passengers and crew, for fear of
summary vengeance from the Indians, who
were entirely masters of the situation. The
fires were out, and, of course, no steam could
be had to move the boat for some hours.
Father De Smet and his black gown seemed
about all that stood between an outraged
body of fighting Indians, and the Nellie Rog
era, her passengers and crew, until Clark
con Id be disposed of. While he was feartsss
and Indifferent, it was evident there was no
safety as long as he remained on board.
Ponies were secured from the traders at Fort
Peck, twelve miles distant, but who bad come
to see "the steamboat." Clark, with two or
three others, who were anxious to get to Fort
Benton, started with very little preparation.
and very little delay, and stood "not upon
the order of their going." And until they
were well out or the Crow country it
thought no grass would grow under their
Before the Indians had . gotten over their
surprise and consternation, Clark, whom
none of them knew personally, had gotten be
yond the reach of their fastest horses, and
through the influence of Father de Smet,
it is probable they never pursued him. "Tom
Dorris," a young man from St. Louis, bound
toe the gold mines at Helena, then Just be
ginning to attract attention, was one of
Clark's traveling companions during that
John Gilpin race. Subsequently it
learned that no halt was made until Fort Ben
ton was reached, and the distance, 200 miles,
covered inside of three clays.
As there was no law and but little justice
in that country then, no Investigation was
ever made, and no cause ever assigned for
the sudden taking off of Mr. Kensio.
It was believed an old grudge existed that
was to be settled in that way whenever the
parties met. It was afterwards said by
Clark that he was the author of several simi
lar tragedies previous to the one at the mouth
of MOk river, although his appearance was
anything but that of a murderer or an out
law. His subsequent history I have never
heard. St. Louis Republic. .

Lockport Journal. r
; , ... Baa Ball.
The Davenports and Quincys of the
interstate league, opened their first series
on the Davenport grounds Saturday, the
visitors winning simply through errors on
the part of the home team. Up to the
seventh inning the score stood 1 to 1, the
Quincy'a tally baring been made through
errors on the part of Kappel and Oessner.
Then Deasley at short by the muff of a
little fly began a series of errors which so
rattled Eappel that he become indifferent
and permitted balls to pass him at the
most critical stages, enabling the black
birds to run in five runs, the score then
standing 8 to 1 in favor of the Quincys
while the only earned run was made by
Davenport. The features of the game
were the battery work of Demarris and
Kittridge for Quincv, the pitching of
Swift for Davenport and the outflelding
of Leighton for Quincy and of Hollacher
and Routcliffe for Davenport.
Testerday the same teams played an
exciting game before 2,500 people which
resulted in a victory for Davenport after
a hard straggle which did not end until
the last Quincy min was out in the
lHt half of the ninth inning. As
was the case Saturday, Quincy made
most of her tallies after the first
inning through gross and inexcusable
errors on the part of the Davenports, the
score at the end standing 10 to 8. While
the Davenports played a loose field game,
they did well at the but, Roucliffe,
Fusselback, Hollacher and Eappel
particularly distinguishing themselves.
The batteries were Raines and Harring
ton for Davenport and Collins and Har-
ter for Quincy.
The same two clubs play again this af
ternoon. The Davenports are stronger at the bat
than they were at any time last season,
but they are lamentably weak at first
base, short stop and center field. Owing
to his rank playing Saturday, Deasley
was not permitted to play yesterday,
Welch playing short stop and Eappel
center field in the latter 's place. With
good men permanently in the positions
named, Davenport will have a strong
team. The club has been weak at
first base ever since Lucas arbitrarily
let Reising go. "Pap" who was a fa
vorite in Rock Island, as in Davenport,
was like a stone wall on first base
nothing got past him and Quincy would
have had three less runs yesterday had
he been there. True, he did not always
bit the bsll, but when be did cork it, he
put wings and whiskers on it, and his
hits often came at the most opportune
moments. Manager Hollacher could do
a great deal worse than sign "Pap"
Reising for first base.
The Rock Island high school nine was
defeated by the Eemper halls, of Dav
enport, at the Rock Island ball park
Saturday by a score of 26 to 21.
A atalcMe'a Body Keaod.
Saturday Henry Behnke, a river mac.
who plies a flatboat, saw a body floating
in -the river opposite Fishertown or about
two miles below the government bridge,
near the Iowa shore. He manned bis
skiff and towed the floater ashore. Cor
oner Bawden was at once summoned, and
proceeded to make an investigation. A
careful examination showed the body to
be that of a man about fifty years old.
with brown hair sprinkled with gray, red
chin beard and brown eyes. It was
dressed in a brown coat and pantaloons,
black vest, buckled shoes. On the right
foot was a cotton sock and on the left
foot a woolen sock . The shirt was of a
small blue check pattern with a white
shirt under it. The weight of the body
was 180 pounds, and the height five feet
six inches. The only articles found in
connection with the body were a pair of
steel eye glasses and a pipe. The body,
judging from appearances had been in the
water from three to five days.
Saturday evening the body was identi
fied as that of Fritz Smurlzie, who lived
alone on Third street below Warren, in
Davenport. It was probably a suicide,
as Smartzie had threatened to make way
with himself. He bad been out of em
ployment for some time.

It would be almost impossible to be
stow too much praise upon the side
splitting musical comedy now running at
the Urand under the title of "A Cold
Day, or the Laplanders." It is the great
est bit of the Grand season for amusing
situations, and yet throughout there Is
nothing but a refined cast to the mirth'
provoking scenes. In addition to the
comedy element of the piece, each act is
flavored with a number of popular sontfs
which always win favor with an audi
ence, and especially where the company
possesses so many really good voices.
Some of the renditions were superb, and
an encore was responded to after each.

fairly captured every heart in the
audience by ber exquisite rendition of
the song,' "I'm So Sly." Nothing more

Individually and collectively the company
is unusually strong, and this will surely
be one the great weeks at the Qrand.

The best medical writers claim that the
successful remedy for nasal catarrh must
be non-irritating, easy of application,
and one that will, by its own action,
reach all the remote sores and ulcerated
surfaces. The history of the efforts to
treat catarrh during the past few years
obliges us to admit that only one remedy
has completely met these conditions, and
that is Ely's Cream Balm. This safe and
pleasant remedy has mastered catarrh as
nothing else baa ever don6, and both
