dance during which a successor to Chief
Joseph will be chosen. A war dance
closes the ceremonies when the warriors
of the Nez Perce tribe swear allegiance
to their new chief.
This concourse of Indians is the larg
est gathering of redskins since the war
times of the early seventies and their
whoopings, waihngs and piercing
shrieks as they engage in their savage
rites resound and echo thru the moun
tain canyons of the Colville reservation,
day and night.
The dancing and feasting of the In
dians is incessant, bands of about 100

night reminds one of a dance of spec
On every hilltop blaze huge bonfires
constantly fed by cords of wood, and
the crackling of the turpentine in the
burning pines adds to the strangeness
of the Nez Perce ceremony.

feathers and bear claws forms the outer
portion of the chieftain's shroud.
When the assembled Indians have
feasted and danced their fill, a Nez
Peice, clad in the head dress and war
garments of Joseph, and mounted on the
late chief's horse will lead the Nez Perce
Indians to the war dance, when, after
the pipe of brotherly love has been
puffed by the leading men of the tribe
council, the redskin in Joseph's garb
will be balloted upon for chief at the
central camp fire and the "great spir
it pole. If his appearance is suffi
ciently commanding, he will attain the
honor. The choice apparently lies be
tween three subchiefs, Joe Kentuck,
George Moses and John Wilson, all pros
perous members of the Nez Perce tribe
living on the Colville reservation. Final
repose will be accorded Chief Joseph's
body after the vote for the new chief.
"Napoleon of the Indians."
Chief Joseph was termed the "Na-
poleon of the Indians" by General Nel
son A. Miles, and the latter was proba
bly the only white man for whom Jo
seph ever professed any liking, and
that liking was more in the nature of
respect for the army officer's prowess
than any other trait.
When Chief Joseph headed a commis
sion of his followers to Washington,
the first person he asked for in the na
tional capital was General Miles, and
following the exchange of "hows," the
gnm-visaged warriors talked of the
seventies when Chief Joseph, after
eluding and successfully combating
the regulars under Generals Gibbon and
Howard, together with large forces of
Montana militia and scouts, was
trapped in the Bear Paw mountains
by Miles, and after two days of the
fiercest kind of fighting was forced to
surrender, only after he had become
disheartened by seeing his brother,
Chief Looking Glass, fall to the ground,
his heart pierced by a bullet and his
band threatened with annihilation.
This memorable battle occurred Sept.
SO, .1877, and was the last of the big
Indian battles in Montana. The In
dians suffered a loss of seventy killed
and about twice that number wounded,
while the soldiers had twenty-three
killed and forty four wounded.
Goes on the Warpath.
Driven from the beautiful Willowla
by the encroachments of the white set
tlers, Chief Joseph went upon the war
path nfter an attempt was made to
place him and his people upon a resei
vation. He stamped a tieaty submitted
to him beneath his feet in great rage.
He roamed from the California line to
the Canadian boundary and from the
Blue mountains to the summit of the
Rockies. In 1877 he went upon the
warpath with White Bird and Looking
Glass. The war lasted three months,
with General Howard in pursuit. For
ten weeks Chief Joseph fought a run
ning battle of over 1,500 miles, which
were 300 bucks, encumbered -with fami
lies and stock. He successfully defied
forty companies of regulars, besides
over a regiment of militia and Indian
and cowboy seouts. Chief Joseph's
fighting was confined principally to
Montana., the Nez Perce enteung the
state thru the Lo Lo pass fiom Tdaho,
massacring about sixty settlers on their
way, then sweeping down thru the Big
Hole valley and threatening the settle
ments of Missoula and Deer Lodge.
Butte, Helena, Deer Lodge, Philis
burg and Silver Bow were almost de
populated by the hurried rush of vol
unteers to combat the Nez Perce in
vasion. Senator W. A. Clark, then a
banker at Deer Lodge, believing Deer
Lodge to be in imminent danger of a
massacre, sprang into the saddle and
apprised settlers along the route of the
peril. Clark made a ride of forty-two
miles to Butte in about five hours and
in another four hours was at the head
of a company of volunteers riding mad
ly back to meet Chief Joseph and his
Indians. By a clever flank movement.
Joseph escaped the volunteers and gave
battle to the forces under General Gib
bon on Aug. 3, 1877, close to the Ban
nock crossing, below the Bitter Root,
where he inflicted great loss upon the
^4^iis4liJ&s S^S. 'Miki
Making a wide detour, Joseph eluded
new bodies of soldiery sent against him
and, tomahawking settlers right and
left, he entered the Yellowstone park.
Chief Joseph again gave battle to the
regulars at Crow island on the Mussel
shell, inflicting considerable loss to the
forces under General Howard. The
Nez Perce escaped after killing about a
dozen whites, among whom was Fred
erick Barker, a noted eastern scientist.
H. T. Cowley, a missionary to the
Spokane Indians, tells of how he and
his family stayed in their cabin shud
dering, expecting every minute to hear
the whoops of the Indians, and praying
that if they had to die all might go
together, when the door was burst open
and in stalked White Bird, third chief
of the Nez Perce. He drew himself to
his full height and tossed his blanket
off. He was horrible to look upon, his
body hideous with war paint. The fam
ily thought their time had come, but
after a moment's silenee White Bird
produced a document from Chief Joseph
bearing greetings to the missionary
with assurances that his home and fam
ily were safe.

"From that time Joseph was never
the same man. He brooded constantly
over the fact that Willowla, the coun

going farther and farther from him,
and that the region about his new
home vear bv year was growing smaller
and smaller thru the encroachment of
the prospector and the settler.
"With all his sterling traits as far
