My orders from Gen. Crook were to cap ture this chief, confine him, and send him under guard to Omaha. W hen he was put in the guard-house he sudden ly drew a knife, struck at the guara, and jumped for the door. Little-Big Man. one of his own chiefs, grappled with him, and was cut in the arm by Crazy Horse during the struggle. The two chiefs were surrounded by the guard, and about this time Crazy Horse received a severe wound hi the lower part of the abdomen, either from a knife or bayonet the surgeons are in doubt which. He was immediately removed and placed in charge of the surgeons, and died about midnigh. His father and Touch-ihe-Cioud, chief of the Sans Arcs, remained with him till he died, and when his breath ceased the chief laid his hand on Crazy Horses breast, and said: "It is good he has looked for death, and it has come." The body was delivered to his friends the morn ing after his death. "Crazy Horso and bis friends were assured that no harm was intended him and the chiefs who were with him are satisfied that none was intended, His death resulted from his own violence. There was a great deal of cxcitement among his people following his death, but it is quieting down.
