DEATH OF JOSEPH.
(Continued from Page 1.)
was away attending- his sick wife, rode
through the village crying:
'All must join now. There Is blood.
Tou will be punished if you delay."
Joseph hurried to the" scene, saw that
war must come and took command of
his warriors. The telegraph flashed
the news to "Washington and soldiers
were at once put on the march. Joseph
ambushed thenv practically surround
ed them, and drove them for 12 miles,
killing and wounding many. Gen.
Howard came up with 400 men. Gat
ling guns and a pack train. Joseph
with 300 warriors, his squaws and
children hampering him, gave battle at
Clearwater. They fought all the aft
ernoon, both sides building breast
works at night." The next morning the
hting was renewed. But Howard
was reinforced and the Indians had to
retreat, only to take up a position
where Howard could not then attack
them. Before Howard could act Joseph and
his men had escaped to the Lolo trail,
described by Gen. Sherman as "being
universally admitted by all who have
traveled it from Lewis and Clark to
Capt. Winters as one of the worst
trails for man and beast on this con
tinent." But the Indians, incumbered
as they were with their women and
children, crossed it and in the Lolo
valley met a small force of regulars
and volunteers who took refuge in a
hut. The Indians said: "We do not
want to fight settlers. Let us go to
the buffalo country in peace." They
were permitted to pass and they went
to two villages and bought and paid
for goods at the stores.
WEEK3 OF RUNNING FIGHTS.
Meanwhile Howard was on their
trail and Gen. Gibbon was hurrying
from Montana. He arrived too late to
stop their march. At night, on August
8, 1ST", he struck their camp on the
Big Hole, rushed in and drove the In
dians into the woods. Wbile burning
the camp the Indians returned. There
was fighting for two djays, the Indians
setting fire to the grass and woods
and not leaving the scene until the
night of August 11. In this fight Gib
bon, who was himself wounded, lost 69
men killed and wounded out of a total
of 191. The bodies of 89 Indians were
left on the field. Joseph and his fol
lowers went south, killing and plund
ering, it is said, and crossed the main
divide of the Rocky Mountains, then
turned east and recrossed the Rockies
and went into what is now Yellowstone
Park, closely pursued by Howard and
a detachment from Gibbon's command.
There was a running fight nearly every
day and the advantage was not wholly
with the troops.
The chase lasted until Oct. 1. The
1 government had detachments in al
most every direction where it was

thought Joseph and his little band
might be intercepted. While Howard
was after them Col. Sturgis attempted
to head them off at Stinking river and
Clark's ford. - At the latter place he
met Howard's wearied troops and then
pushed on, hoping by forced marches
of 50 and 60 miles a day to overtake
the hostiles. Gen. Nelson A. Miles was
ordered up from Tongue river, in Mon
tana, to intercept Joseph farther
north. Sturgis overtook the Indians,
fought them all one day, killing 21 and
capturing 900 ponies, a bad blow for
Joseph. Sturgis' horses were worn
out, however, h js troops being com
pelled to walk, and he was obliged to
discontinue the pursuit and wait for !
Howard to come up with him. I
Gen. Miles, meanwhile had started
north for the gap between the Little
Rocky and the Bear Paw Mountains, i
Joseph was away to the north, having
crossed the Missouri at Cow Island,
where he had a fight with a few troops,
and, afterwards with th men un.ier
Major Ilges. forcing the latter to with- 1
draw. On Sept. 30, after a march of
267 miles, Gen. Miles came within sight
of Joseph's camp in the valley of
Snake creek. It was in a strong posi-'
ti.on, but Mjles sent a battalion of ca
valry to the rear of the camp and cap
tured S00 ponies. He then charged the
camp, but lost . 24 men killed and 42
wounded, 35 per cent, of the attacking
force. He withdrew without capturing
"It was apparent," says Gen. Miles,
"that their position could only be forced
by a charge or a sipge. The first could
not be accomplished without, too great
sacrifice, while the latter, in my judg
ment, would be almost sure to result
satisfactorily." So, thy Indians being
surrounded and their pony herd cap
tured, rendering their escape almost
impossible. Miles determined to hold
his position. He notified Howard ai:d
Sturgis of the situation.
WOULDN'T LEAVE THEIR WOUND
Poor Joseph was now in a hard case.
Looking Glass, one of his bravest men,
had been killed; so had Joseph's brother
Ollacut, and Toohulhulsute, the priest:
White Bird, with more than a hundred
warriors, had escaped through the night
and safely reached the Canadian fron
tier; his ponies were all captured and
he had only a handful of warriors. The
women and children were still with him.
,In his extremity he sent a messenger
to Sitting Bull, then encamped apross
the Canadian line, about 50 miles away.
The crafty old medicine man had had
some dire experiences with the United
Ktr.tAa a Vpar before and he at Once
went 40 miles farther into Canada.

was snowing and the weather was very
cold. Hunted "for more " than a thou
sand miles, the chase lasting more than
three months, having fought nearly 20
battles, Joseph found himself surround
ed and helpless. He and his warriors
might have escaped, but they would
not make ihe attempt. He afterward
said. "We could have got away from
Bear Paw mountain if we had left the
wounded and the women and children
behind, but we were unwilling to do
this. We had never heard of a wound
ed Indian recovering while in the hands
of the whites."
So, after four days, Joseph and a
band of warriors came out under a flag
of truce. Terms were agreed upon and
the Nez Perces 87 warriors, 1S4 squaws
and 147 children surrendered. Gen.
Miles in describing the scene said: "As
Chief Joseph was about to hand his
rifle to me he raised his eyes to the
&un, which was at about 10 o'clock and
said: 'From where the sun now stands
I fight no more against the white man.'
From that time to this he has kept his
word." The Indians had had 26 killed
in the fight four days- before and 40
of those who surrendered were wound-

then filtered and piped direct from the brewery vaults into bottles
by means of hermetically closed filling machines. This prevents the
beer from coming in contact with the outside air, and insures absolute
freedom from bacteria. It also preserves its natural effervescence and zest.

ord. The Indians throughout displajj-'"-'
a courage and skill that elicited univer
sal praise; they abstained from scalp
ing, let captive women go free, did not
commit indiscriminate murder of fami
lies, which is unusual, and fought with
almost scientific skill, using advance
and rear guards, skirmish lines and flelcS
fortifications." Many of the officers of
the old army say Joseph was the great
est military mind of all American In
dians, How were they treated after all this?
Gen. Miles says: "I acted on what I
supposed was the original design or the
government to place these' Indians-on
their own reservation (Lapyai) and so
informed them, and also sent assur
ances to the war parties that were out
and to those who had escaped, that
they would be taken to Tongue river
and retained for a time and sent across
the mountains as soon as the weather
permitted In the spring." Instead they
were sent to Fort Leavenworth a
prisoners and then to the Indian terri
tory, where more than 25 per cent, of
them died from malaria. Gen. Miles,
for seven' years, did not cease to urge
the government to keep its oromise to
this brave people. Finally, in 1885, the
remnant of them, 208 in number, were
taken back to the Colville reservation. jt.
