Northern Montana Citizens Gave Battle to N.:
Perce Raiders.
From Fort Benton River Press.
The death of Chief Joseph a few
days ago on the Colville (Wash.) In
dian reservation, recalls some of the
exciting incidents of his famous raid
in this part of Montana in the early
fall of 1877, when several residents of
this city took part in a battle with
the murderous savages. Chief Joseph
and his followers went on the war
path in Idaho and were pursued by
United States troops, but managed to
escape into western Montana. The
military were assisted by posses of
citizen volunteers and after a long
chase there was a desperate battle at
Big Hole in which a number of sol
diers and civilians were killed, but
Chief Joseph and his band managed
to escape into Idaho, and subsequent
ly returned to Montana by way of the
Yellowstone park.
They made their way into the Mus
selshell country, leaving a trail of
robbery and murder in that part of
Montana and causing apprehension of
trouble among settlers in that local
ity. At that time the late Jim Wells
was located at Clagett, and he sent
word to his Fort Benton friends that
the Nez Perces were headed in that
direction and troops should be sent
there at onces. General Miles, with
600 soldiers, was in pursuit of the hos
tiles, and the latter were trying to es
cape into Canada.
Upon receipt of word that Jim
Wells needed help, Col. J. J. Donnel
ly, who was then county clerk, form
ed a company of volunteers to go to
his assistance. There was between
forty and fifty men in the company,
among them being Judge Tattan, Ike
Clark, Wm. Rywe, Thos. O'Hanlon,
W. S. Evans, John Egan, Geo. Far
mer, Joseph Morrison, Murray Nich
olson and other early day residents of
this city. They unexpectedly met
Chief Joseph's band of about 250 war
riors at Cow Island and were com
pelled to give battle. The fight took
place on September 27, 1877, and last
ed about three hours, the arrival of
troops brought down the river by Col.

Three days later General Miles ov
ertook the Indian raiders on Snake
creek where one of the fiercest battles
ever known in the history of Indian
warfare took place. General Miles
lost 23 killed and 44 wounded, and the
Indian losses were also heavy. Chief
Joseph surrendered to General Miles
and since that time had been practi
cally a prisoner.
