Nathaniel Pitt Langford, one of the discoverers oi Yellowstone park, and its first superintendent, who first came to St. Paul in 1854, traveled overland to the Rocky mountains in 1862, in great hardships and perils, was a lead er of the vigilantes that put down con ditions of outlawry in Montana, and president of tne Minnesota Historical society, died at 1:30 p. m. today at his home, 291 South Exchange street, St. Paul, at the age of 79, says the Minne apolis Journal. He had been ill sev eral months, due to a fall on the capi tol steps. Mr. Langford was born Aug. 9, 1832, in Westmoreland, Oneida coun ty, New York. After obtaining a com mon-school education, he became a clerk in a bank in Utica, when 19 [years old. Three years later, in 1854, he set out for the west and landed in St. Paul that year. Immediately em ployment was obtained as cashier in the bank of Marshall & Co. In 1858 he became cashier of the Bank of the State of Minnesota, in which position he remained until 1862. Captain James L. Fisk was then in St. Paul to fit out an expedition to open a northern overland wagon road from St. Paul to Walla Walla, Wash. About this time reports of wonderful gold finds in Idaho were current in Minnesota and the fortune hunters were eager to join in the rush. Mr. Langford joined the expedition and from that moment until he re turned to St. Paul again in 1884, for lx i Vltc< ll fo \1»Q C HT1 Ct Ipflll twenty-two years his life was one'con tinuous round of adventure and excite I ment. The party was a strong one, eom posed of 153 sturdy men, and the train composed fifty-three wagons. Nineteen weeks were consumed in reaching the country beyond the Rockies and for fifteen weeks the party did not see a white man. Near ly the entire distance after reaching the Missouri river the party was in the country of hostile Indians and this, with the necessity of finding a trail in a trackless wilderness, gave everybody plenty of work and excite ment. When they reached the mining country they were thrown at once among the toughest class of people in the world. The new mining camps of Montana swarmed with gamblers desperadoes and cut-throats driven from California and Nevada. Their acts of violence and criminality be came so bold and frequent that the better element organized the Vigi lantes, which in time drove away or cowed the desperadoes, but not until they had murdered 102 peaceable and law-abiding miners and business men. Langford was one of the men marked for death. The most complete story of those bloody days in Montana is Langford's work, "Vigilante Days and Ways," published in two volumes. This gives in detail the merciless manner in which the gang of des peradoes operated under the leader ship of Henry Plummer, who, though a gambler, managed by means of his genial ways and able campaigning, to have himself elected sheriff of Deer Lodge county. The worst criminals in the territory were made deputies and a reign of terror followed, con tinuing until Plummer was executed in 1864. Others also were strung up under the inexorable sentence of Judge Lynch and the remainder flea the country. Mr. Langford was appointed deputy collector of internal revenue in 1864, holding the position four years. As he often carried large sums of money and much gold dust he was often in dan ger. On one occasion, when carrying $12,000 in gold dust and money from Blackfoot to Deer Lodge, he was fol lowed by four robbers and only es caped through the fleetness and en durance of his horse. President An drew Johnson removed Mr. Langford as collector, but the senate refused to confirm his successor, J. B. Hubbell, so Mr. Langford was restored to the position. Later President Johnson ap pointed Mr. Langford governor of the territory of Montana, but the appoint ment never was confirmed and Mr. Langford never became governor. In his wanderings among the mining camps Mr. Langford often met pros pectors who had been in the Yellow stone country and heard their tales, at that time incredible, of the natural wonders of that region. When General Henry D. Washburn, surveyor general of Montana, proposed to organize an expedition to the land of wonders, Mr. Langford sought a place with the com pany and was accepted. Other mem bers of the party were Samuel T. Hauser, afterward governor of Mon tana, Judge Cornelius Hedges, two fed eral officials and leading citizens, five I members of the Second United States cavalry with Lieutenant Gustavus C Doane in command, two helpers and "two African boys" to look after the me als. The nine citizens and six sol diers took regular turns at guard duty every night for fear of surprise by the par ty, which explored what is now Yellowstone National park, were not the first white men in the region I and they were not even the first to describe its wonders, but the expedi made by far the mogt thor £ ugh ex pi or ation and their reports were the fi rs t to arouse an interest in the coun try. Among the most widely read were the articles by Mr. Langford pub lished in Scribners Magazine. j^r. Langford, with Mr. Hauser and others, took an active part in prevail ing upon congress to set aside the ter ritory containing the rarest of the I wonders and the most picturesque I scenery as a big national park, In recognition of his services Mr. if Langford was appointed the first su perintendent of Yellowstone park. His friends for some time afterward enjoyed addressing his as "National Park" Langford, making a play of his initials, N. P. He did not hold the position long, being appointed national bank ex aminer for the Pacific states. This position required constant travel, and as the railways were few and only ran east and west, he had to use the stages. In the twelve years he was in the work he traveled 74,000 miles by stage, according to his own esti mate. After returning to St. Paul, Mr. Langford became greatly interested in the Minnesota Historical society, and has done much to enlarge its museum, its library and its original historical records. He has been president of the society for the last nine years. Mr. Langford also has been chair man of the board of control which has charge of the city and county hospital and almshouse. His name is perpetuated in Langford avenue, the southern boundary of the state fair grounds. , Mr. Langford was twice married, both times to sisters of Dr. Charles A. Wheaton, of St. Paul. The first marriage was to Miss Emma C. Wheaton in 1876 and the second in 1884 to Miss Clara Wheaton, by whom he is survived. There were no chil dren. Fight to Center in Ohio. Cleveland, Oct. 18.—Ohio is to be the center of the fight to prevent Pres ident Taft's renomination and to ob tain the republican nomination for Senator Robert M. La Follette, of Wisconsin, according to Cleveland delegates, who attended the progres sive conference in Chicago. They also assert that La Follette will con centrate his forces in this state. La Follette himself will speak here in December. Other speakers will be Senator Clapp, of Minnesota; Senator Bristow, of Kansas; Senator Cum mins, of Iowa, and Congressman Len root, of Wisconsin. CARROLL FOR POSTMASTER. Is Rumored a Change Will Soon Occur in Roundup Postoffice. Roundup parties, who' were visitors to this city last week, say that there is a well-founded rumor afioat of a change in the postmastership at the big Musselshell county coal camp. It is said that the term of the present incumbent, Mr. August Schrump, will expire next August and that L. R. Carroll, a Roundup attorney, is slated to succeed Mr. Schrump as high custodian of Roundup mail. The presence of Mr. Carroll in this city for several days this week gives color to the rumor. Mr. Carroll was asked by the Democrat regarding the rumor, but would neither confirm nor deny it, stating that he had nothing to say on the subject, but others who claim to know say that Mr. Carroll's mission to this city has to do with fixing up his fences and squaring mat ters with the big republican chiefs here. Mr. Schrump has a big following among the republicans in Roundup, who will undoubtedly vigorously op pose any effort to side-track him for reappointment, while the supporters of Mr. Carroll are said to be doing some quiet but effective work. From a spectator's point of view, the scrap for the Roundup postoffice bids fair to be a mlx-up well worth wltnessing. HAIR HEALTH. ! j Xhi _ fi-nerous Take Advantage of Th.s Generous Offer.
