Gen. Crook wa born in Ohio. Sept 23,
1920. He entered TVeit Point in IMS, grad

He was first assigned as second lieutenant of
the Fourth infantry. At the breaking out
of the war be was made colonel of tbe
Thirty sixth Obi. He fought throughout
tbe Virginia campaign as brigadier-general.
Ordered to Tennessee, be distinguished him

he aided in defeating the rebels at Cedar
Creek, and planned tbe attack upon Erly

After the war, a lieutenant colonel of tbe
Twenty -third infantry, in tbe department of
the Columbia, he di 1 good work in quell ing

The Treaty with Oeroel fa.
Gun. Crook bad always championed tbe
caute o tbe red men who were anxious to
live in peace, and his sympathy with the
red man caused tbe only disapproval of bis
course ever expressed from Wanhinton City.
When be had conquered (i'Hrouimo and his
band he found that notable Indian "con
quered but not subdued prepared to figbt
to tbe death rather than surrender uncondi
tionally. Time was short; there was no op
portunity to telegraph for instructions, and
so Gen. Crook agreed to a conditional sur
render. This was disapprove-! by Gen.
Sheridan, as the instructions had been "un
conditional surrender." Gen. Crook then
wrote Gen. Sheridan that as ha (Crook) was
probably too set in his own views as to how
to deal witi the Indians, he would like to be
relieved from further service against them.
His requoKt was granted; and on April K,
President Cleveland nominated Brig.
Gen. George Crook to be major general,
vice Terry, retired. Hi headquarters were
established in the Pullman building in this
city, and his time wculd have expired in

abolished the system of trading and paying
in goods and store orders indulged in by con
tractors, paid caiib direct to the Indians for
all his supplies and stimulated tbem to in
creased exertions. The Indians became self

Gen. Crook was a believer in work, and
prescribed it for tbe Indians as well as for
himself, lit was temperate, and insisted
that no low whites should lie permitted to

He married just after the war of the re
bullion Miss Mary Iailey, whose home dur
ing the war bad been In a portion of Mary
landOakland, a summer resort largely in
possession of the Union troojis, while her
family were southern symratbizera. It is
related of her that while a wing Tit her
father's hotel was in use as a hospital she de
termined to provide some palatable food for
the wounded Union soldiers. Much against
tbe protest of the old negress who was queen
of . tbe hotel kitchen, she fixed np a savory
soup and carried It to the boy in blue. One
young fellow, pale and famished, took the
savory mess and put it eagerly to his lips.
"Hold on, Bob," sang out a comrade on the
floor beside him, "may be that stuffs poi
soned." Tbe sick man hesitated for one
moment, looked at Mary, whose blue eyes,
frank as day, doubtless Sashed their indig

The three fires had com pletely exhausted
tbe voluteer Bremen of this city, and, as a
measure of precaution, it was decided to ask
for reinforcements from Colorado Hpruigs.
Tbe request wag ma.le by wire, and prompt
ly upon its receipt Mayor StiumaB, of that

come to this city without delay, which or

Just as tbe fire was discovered in Mrs,

rushing from the burning honse and disap

was obtained, however, to enable her to de

Clark took in Charge a dissolute
character named Peter KeJ, who ha
been banging around tbe city for several
months. Reed was in a mau i in condition
of drunkenness when arrested, and while
on the way to jail made the startling an
nouncement that seven more houses would
be destroyed before morning. As tbe pris

The Ma) or s era id tCaforve the Law.
There are many t he. s-ifs advance. as to the
cause of the incendiarism. Some think tbe
fires are the work of negroes who had lately
been arrested f -r keeping disreputable
houses, and others express the belief that the
devastation was caused through spite to
Mayor btockbridge. It is a well-known fact,
however, tbat the municipal election ha
much to do with tha trouble, and threats
have freequently been made by enemies of
Mayor Stockbrhige that he would suffer if
be attempted to be re-elected to tha office.
The enmity against tim is caused by tbe fact
that be had enforced the law regardless of
personal feeling, and of the influence sought
to be brought to bear upon him.
