Anionic the Flathead* — A11 Interest lug Item of Montana History. During the winter of 1S04-5 the expedi tion of Lewis and Clarke wintered on the west side of the range in the country of the Flathead Indians, near the present site ot Missoula, in Montana. During that winter Capt. Clarke took to himself an In dian wife of that tribe, and the issue of the niarr * a S e " as « son, who was always re ««nixed in the tribe as Capt. Clarke'', son. In the early days of Helena-, 866 to ,869 —when the Flathead and Nez Perce Indi ans used to pass through on their wav to the Judith basin and Yellowstone hunting grounds, this son, a man then over 60 years accompanied the tribe and was pointed out on all occasions as Clark's son. The Indian had sandy or red hair, and if we remember correctly, biue eyes, and was evidently of mixed blood. Many of the old citizens of Helena will recall hav ing seen him. His death occurred only a year ago, and he left a son. The Indepen dent, in a recent article, speaks of this son, who is a grandson of Capt. Clark : Over on the Flathead reservation Ma jor Ronan, the »gent, will point out to a visitor a stout, athletic Indian, often painted, and always attired in favorite In dian dress, tearing around on a fleet horse — presenting in every particular the ap pearancc of a typical Indian. This young Indian is a grandson of Capt, William Clarke, of Lewis and Clarke, the first men to explore the country lying between the Missouri river and the northern Pacific coast. He is called Sackalee Clarke, and unless the traditions of the Indians are en tirely at fault, is actually the grandson of the great northwestern explorer. A Flat head woman who is supposed to be over too years of age, vouches for the boy's de scent from Captain Clarke, and for that matter, it is the tradition or unwritten his tory of the whole tribe. "Major Ronan has frequently tried to get this barbarian scion of • great ances tor to follow the better example of the better members of his tribe by working for a living, but with little success. Last spring he worked a month at hauling fence rails, but with very ha., grace, and jumped the job as soon as lie could find a reasonab'c excuse for so doing. This story of Captain Clarke having issue in Montana has been denied, but Major Ro nan, who lias excellent opprotunitics for knowing definitely, affirms it to be true." Hirer Press.
