TRYING TO ESCAPE
OLD WARRIOR HEARD OF POSSIBLE
FIGHTING AND WANTED
TO GET IN IT.
LAWTON, Okla., July 10.?Geronlrao,
the Apache warrior, while attending
a celebration at Cache, aa guest
of Comanche Chief Quanah Parker
Saturday, made an effort to escape
across the Texas Panhandle and into
Mexico. Geronimo was missing from
the Indian camp over night, and a detail
of soldiers from Fort Sill captured
him several miles out of Cache
next morning.
Geronimo has heard of the recent
trouble with Apache Indians near 11
Paso, and he explains that he wanted
to go and help his people BghL He
has been having family troubles of
late, and his eighth wife has left bis
roof.
Recently he drank liquor to excess
and lay out on the reservation all
night. This Incensed the church-going
Indians, for they had expected several
interesting sermons from Geronimo
during revival services that were just
beginning. These troubles bore heavily
upon the warrior, and he was mentally
unbalanced for two days. Indian
scouts are guarding him all the
time.
Geronlmo expressed satisfaction at
being Invited to attend a celebration
near the mountain home of Chief Parker,
where several hundred Indians
participated in a sham battle and stage
coach robbery. The fight over, Geronlmo
took advantage of the quiet to
steal away.
"I am tired of being a prisoner and
of trouble," he said upon being returned
to the Fort Sill reservation,
"and I wanted to fight for my people.
Some day I shall go away from the
President's men and they shall never
see me again."
Not the Business Manager.
A number of people have spoken
lately of the resignation of Mr. Clarence
Davlsson as circulation manager
of the West Virginian thinking It was
Mr. L. M. Davis, the business manager.
Mr. Davis has not resigned, but
is still doing business at the old stand.

injuries which resulted In his
