people and was
made a Creek war chief.
The Creeks were a powerful federa
tion of Indian tribes whose lands
stretched through several of the
I southernmost states. The white Bat
tlers, growing more and more numer
ous, cast envious eyes on the rich
Creek country and appealed to the
United States government to get It
away from its redskin owners for
them. It was the same old story en
acted so many times along the frontier
when the. white man has wanted the
Indian's land. The government turned
over several million acres of Creek
territory to the state of Georgia. Mc
intosh pointed out to his people that
unless they stood firm for their pos
sessions the government would soon
have every acre of their once huge
tract of land. He then drew up a law
which the Creeks eagerly adopted
making it a crime punishable by death
for a Creek to try to sell to the United
States any of the remaining territory.
This law made Mcintosh Immensely
popular with the Indians. He cow
proceeded to make bimslf equally
1 popular with the government.
In the War of 1812 most of the
j Creeks sided with Great Britain. But
, Mcintosh declared himself a friend of
the United States and managed to
raise a big war party, which followed
him against the nest of his "nation."
I He attacked a village of Creeks (At
ssi) that had sided with England and
massacred its 200 men, women and
children. In other conflicts of that
same war he fought eo savagely
against hia own people as to win not
only the rank of major, but the trust
of our government. Incidentally his
services opened to him a pleasant Held
I for graft.
The United States was eager for
more of the Creek lands. Mcintosh
stood high in the Creek councils. He
could be of use in managing "treaties"
for the defpeillng of his people. He
willingly accepted the government's
ffer and secretly became Its paid
agent. It was a highly profitable bit of
daiit.ia-doling for a. tinwfc

"Are yon at all familiar with riatoT
asked Mrs. Oldcastle.
"No; that's one thing Josiah always
blames me for. fie says I never make
real friends with anybody."
All the news all the time The Argus.
Fifteen million acres of Creek land
were soon after transferred to the
United States. Mcintosh reaped a rich
harvest by this "treaty." But It
ruined him with the Creeks. They
made no open threats against the
traitor; but they simply met In coun
cil and re-enacted his own former law,
making any such future transfers pun
ishable by death.
In 1824 Mcintosh received a large
cash offer for his services In a plan
for ceding 10,000,000 more acres of
the Creeks to the government. The
majority of the Creeks fiercely pro
tested against this glaring robbery.
John C. Calhoun, secretary of state,
declared that It was cruelly unjust.
President Monroe laid the treaty be
fore the United States senate. And,
after John Qulncy Adams' Inaugura
tion, it was approved. A letter in
which Mcintosh had offered bribe
money to one of the Creek officials to
side with the government was discov
ered by the Indians. This proved the
wily half-breed's treachery past all
question. The Creeks using his own
old law as a death warrant declared
Mcintosh's life forfeited.
This time Mcintosh was really
alarmed. He retired to a fortifl-d
house at Milledgevllle and surrounded
himself with a strong guard. The
Creeks went about the traitor's execur
tlon In a quiet, business like way.
On the night of May 1, 1825, oce
hundred of them surrounded his
house. They sent orders to bis guardH,
servants and family to leave the place,
at once. Then tbey burned the bouse
to the ground. Mcintosh, dashing out
through the flames, was shot dead.
No punishment was Inflicted on Mc
intosh's slayers. The question of ven
geance was brought before President
Adams. But, for everybody's sake. It
was deemed best to let the affair drop.
It was a scandal the administration
did not care to make too public.
