HELENA WEEKLY HERALD.
LOCAL NEWS.
From the Daily Herald of Slay 13.
A Horrible Tragedy near Cow
Island.
Reported Massacre of A. J.
Simmons and Party by a
band of Sioux Indians.
* -
They Are Said to Have Been
Surprised by the Treacher
ous Red Devils and
butchered in Cold
Blood.
Painful reports lwive l>een rife for some
days at Fort Benton that Special Indian Agent
Simmons and party have been killed by a
band of Indians, (Sioux) somewhere in the
neighborhood of Cow Island, Missouri rivet.
These reports reached Benton through half
breed sources, and seem to be credited by
those best informed of recent Indian move
ments in the upper river eountiy. Mr. Ar
noux, of Benton, writes to Mr. Broadwater,
of this city, of these reports, and states (hat a
considerable sum ÿ money has been volun
teered by the merchants and others of lliat
place to induce a responsible person to pro
ceed below and ascertain the truth or falsity
of the information received. The half-breed
accounts are to the effect that Simmons and
men, while passing some point above Cow
Island, were hailed from the river hank by
Sioux, who signified their desire for the party
to land and talk willi them; that the party
complied, went ashore, were overpowered
and subsequently killed by the Indians. This
terrible tragedy must have occurred—if occur
it did—between the 2(ith and 29lh of April.
As previously communicated by our Ben
ton correspondent, and published in the IIku
AiiD of May 8th, Mr. Simmons' party took
their departure from that place ou the morn
ing of the 24th ult., ou the splendid new
Mackinaw boat "Jas. M. Arnoux," bound
down the river to interview and issue pro
visions to the Sioux. Six men constituted the
party, as follows: A. «. Simmons, Special
Indian Agent at Fort Browning ; Chas. D.
Hard, Deputy U. S. Marshal : Wtn. B. Judd,
employee of Indian Department at Browning;
J. X. Beidler, employee of Indian Depart
ment at Fort Peck; Wm. Bout, Interpreter;
and one other man whose name we have not
yet learned, engaged at Benton to make up
the quota for the hazardous river trip.
It w ill be remembered that our correspon
dent, waiting us on April 27th, suited that it
was thought by Benton people that Mr. Sim
mons "would encounter tbe Sioux before
going many miles, as the war party, supposed
to be Sioux, who tired upon a party of white
men at Eagle creek, and stole' four horses
from them on the 10th, are probably linger
iug on the river not far away." The infer
ence la tiiat these are the Indians who have
lieen guilty—if reports are corroborated—of
tlds fearful butchery. Wc earnestly trust,
und are not without hope, tiiat the accounts
of this tragedy will yet prove to have been
greatly exaggerated or wholly unfounded.
The wires between Helena and Benton are
broken, and we are obliged to await further
advices through the torturing slow medium
of the mails. , ;
Latku.—S ince the above was placed lu
type, the operator at Beuton telegraphs to
Mr. Fredericks, of the Helena office, that
the impression is general at that place that
Mr. »humons and his entire party were mur-
dered by the Indians, as first reported. Fur-
ther news of this bloody tragedy Is expected
at Benton this evening or to-morrow, and
will be immediately telegraphed to the Her-
ADD.

gulch, a distance of nearly two miles. The
ditch will be carried to Antelope gulch, where
Messrs. Pemberton & Kelley own over two
hundred acres of mineral land.
We have had more sickness in town this
spring than ever before known, and that it is
attributable to a neglect of proper sanitary
precaution in a great measure, there is no
doubt.
Henry Valiton, Esq., has recovered from a
severe attack of mountain fever, and we are
pleased to sec him on the streets attending to
business again. .
There are "rumors in the air" that a promi

From the Dally Herald of May 15.
Tbe Reported Itlnrder of Hr. Simmon«
and Party.
Maior Walker, Paymaster U. S. A., who
returned from Benton yesterday, states that
the reports received at that place of the killing
by Indians of Agent Simmons and party
were from two different sources—from half
breeds, who crowded into Benton through
fear of the Sioux, said to be preparing in force
for the war-path ; and from White Eagle, the
well-known Grosventre Chief, who subse
quently arrived at that place. Both reports
agree as to the killing by Sioux of seven men
bound down the river m a lioat, and the place
of the killing was given in each instance as
Cow Creek, above the Muscleslicll. White
Engle was surprised to learn that the half
breeds, who arrived at Benton in advance of
him, had the same information be bad
brought, ami tiiat the news hod already been
communicated to the people there. It was
difficult to find at Benton a responsible person
willing to incur the risk of proceeeding down
the river to ascertain the truth or falsity
the reports, und to determine the fate of the
party. One of White Eagle's braves was
finally secured for the undertaking, and de
parted on his journey to obtain definite infor
mation in the premises, and to return
speedily as possible thereafter. Some days
may yet elapse before we can say for a cer
tainty that the reported tragedy has or has
not foundation in ft

slashes in the shoulder from a knife in I
