Chief Joseph of the Nez Perces. in
the opinion of the Army officers had no
superior in the annals of Indian warfare
for dipbmacy, strategy, quick and elu
sive marches and cal m courage. In the
old days be roamed from the California
line to the Canadian boundary, and
from the Blue Mountains to the summit
of the Rockies.
Invasion of that section by whites
brought about the need of a new Indian
treaty. Joseph and his band refused to
be moved from their va leys. In 1877
an attempt was made to put him on a
reservation. He went on the warpath
with White Bird and , Looking Glass
The war lasted for three months with
General Howard in pursuit, and for ten
weeks Joseph fought a running battle,
in which, with 300 buckB, encu.nbered
with families and stock, be 'successfully
defied 40 companies of regulars, besides
large forces of volunteers and Indian

he escaped over the Lolo trail to Mon-
Una, eluded forces stationed at the
mouth of the canyon and started for the
Canadian border. He was finally capt
ured by General Miles, after the chase
of Joseph bad been a running battle
for 1500 miles.
The United States lost 105 officers and
men killed and 120 wounded. Fifty
settlers were massacred. Since then
Joseph had been peaceful, but had re
fused to return to the reservation, and
had made frequent trips to Washington,
D. C , where he was lionized. He and
Miles were great friends.
Joseph's last public appearance was
July 4 of this year, when he personally
led a big parade of Nez Perces in a par
ade at Ne8pehm. The old chief donned
war paint and full regalia, and tit the
bead of 400 savages in all the trappings
of war save a faithful illustration of )
earlier days. After the parade Joseph
made a brief speech, telling the Indians
of the wonders of Washington City and
