THE WORK OF BLOODTHIRSTY IN
DIANS QUICKLY AVENGED.
A Historic and Drcadfnl Slaughter of a
Husband and Wife, Early Settlers of the
Great Northwests Effect of Firewater on
The death of John Boneer, one of the
earliest pioneers of Oregon, at Sauvie's is
land, near Portland, recalls one of the
bloodiest tragedies that ever occurred in
King comity, and one which will go down
in history aa the greatest example the pi
oneers had of the evil effect of giving whis
ky to the Indians. The event is memorable
for another reason, and that is that the
daughter of John Bonser, wifu of William
Casto and probably the most beautiful
woman in the territory, was a victim.
"I don't take much stock in the hand
tome, charming women we read about,"
said C. D. Bagley yesterday, "but Mrs.
Casto, if placed in Seattle today with the
face and form as when she came among us
in 1864, would be among the most hand
some women in the city, and I shall never
forget the sensation created in our little
settlement when messengers arrived from
Squak valley, where the Castes moved,
with the news that Mrs. Casto, her hus
band and John Holstead had been killed by
Indians, and that a friendly Klickitat had
slain the murderers."
At that time there was no btuebook, and
In fact women were scarce. It is not sur
prising, then, that the arrival of William
Casto, a man aged 38 years and a true rep
resentative of the Kentucky colonel type,
with his young wife, the daughter of John
Bonser of Sauvie's island, Columbia river,
near Portland, should have been a mem
orable occasion. Mrs. Casto was a natural,
not an artificial, beauty one of those womr
en to whom all apparel adapts itself and
becomes a part of the wearer. She was ad
mired by all and fairly worshiped by her
husband. In the Epring Casto took up a
ranch in the heart of Squak valley, where
the Tibbetta farm now lies. Ilere be built
small house, put in a garden and com
menced clearing. In order to create an in
come for himself and wife he opened a em all
trading post and carried on the manufac
ture of hoop peles. The valley was pecul
iarly adapted to this business owing to a
dense growth of hazel bush, the very article
most desired. White labor was scarce, but
Casto, with an eye to business, employed
Indians. For a wonder they applied them
selves diligently and became expert work
men. Casto had great influence over his work
men and was looked up to by them as a
sort of white "tyee" or chief. He had one
fault, which goes hand in hand the world
over with a free heart he loved liquor and
now aad then drank too much, lie also
got in the habit of giving it to the Indians
in his employ. On several occasions the
true Indian nature, under the influence of
stimulants, came out, and it required all
his authority to avoid bloodshed. Uis
neighbors, who could be numbered on the
fingers of both hands, with some to spare,
cautioned him not to give "a redskin whis
ky and arouse the devil," but he laughed
at them, and when they warned him of
treachery thought they spoke nonsense.
He would not believe that the men whom
he had treated so kindly and befriended in
every conceivable manner would do him
harm under any conditions. He reasoned
that his neighbors did not fadfte the char
acter of the native correctly and underesti
mated his influence. There was no reason
why be should not give his Indians liquor
if he bo desired. He acted on this decision
on the afternoon of Kov. T, 1804, and then
went to his home for supper.
The Indians got gloriously drunk and
then croxrmenoed to thirst for blood. In the
crowd were two of the Snohomish tribe,
bloodthirsty brutes and still seeking re
venge for the death of their tribesmen and
chief on the Snohomish river the summer
previous. Their resolve was made. Casto's
life would atone for that of the chief, his
wife and friend, John Holfctead, for the
other two. Tbey secretly took their guns
and went to Casto's house. The curtain of
the room wherein all three wrro seated at
the supper table was up, and the breast of
Canto was in plain view of the assassins.
There waa no hesitation on the part of the
The first shot crashed through the win
dow and pierced Casto in a vital spot, lie
arose to his feet, staggered and fell upon a
lounge. His wife sprang 4 Lis assistance,
but the rifle spoke again and she fell to the
floor. The third shot hit llolstead, but not
fatally, ami the Indians, determined to
complete their bloody work, ran to the
front door. They wt-re met by Holstead,
who fought like a demon, but at lenjrth
fell, his body gtablx-d in more than '20
places. Xot content with the slaughter al
ready done, the bloodthirsty wretches drove
their knive3 into the liody of Casto's 1kru
tiful wife inn manner most inhuman. Hav
ing finished their bloody work t hey left the
house, never for a moment thinking their
lives were in danger. In this particular
they made a fatal error.
The shots ilrcd bed uttr.-R'teil a Klirkitnt
Indinn named Al.-ek to the trene. llew.-is
a true friend to the white man and held
C'ato, his U'.plcyer, in high repanl. It
took him but u brief pcriixl to comprehend
the situation. He concealed himself, and
when the brutes came out of this house he
crept up liehind them. Due fJiot was
enough to end the earthly career of one of
theru, but the other took to his heels:
Aleck followed him with a hatchet he had
drawn from his belt, and Ieing fleeter of
foot caught up. Then with one swift blow
the skull of the fleeing Indian was cleft,
and as he fell headlong to the ground again
the bloody hatchet drank blood until the
head that but a few minutes before had
human shape looked like a chopped pump
kin. Out of the killing by Aleck of the two
Snohomish Indians grew a feud which re
sulted in the death of Aleck's son. The
old man was the one wanted, but he was
too quick with the rifle, and they never gtt
him. He died a few years ago, aged nearly
90 years. Seattle Po6t-Intclligcncer.

It is well known that by a wise employ
ment of punishment animals can be trained
and improved. There are, however, in
stincts that it seems impossible to change.
The cat, in spite of a long domesticity and
repeated punishments, never loses its habit
of stealing, and a curious coincidence is
that among criminals a thief is the most
difficult to reform and is generally incor
rigible. Severity may help feeble animals
sometimes, but it renders the more vigor
ous vindictive. In the case of criminal man
the un idea is true. Current Literature.
