PHILIP OF POKANOKET. "TER
ROR OF NEW ENGLAND"
SHOULD the apologist for tlio In
dian try to Justify tho red man's
cruelty by citing cases of white bar
barity, ho need only refer to tho enso
of King Philip of Poknnokct, chief of
tho Wumpnnoags. When lo was killed
the colonists treated ids body as though
it were the carcass of a wild beast.
Tlicy beheaded and quartered him.
They exhibited tho head on a gibbet
at Plymouth for 20 years and they
united the- quarters on trees. One
of ids linntls, mutilated by a bursting
pistol, was given to Alderman, his
King Philip (Metncomet) was tho.
second son of friendly old Mnssasoit
but he had no lose -for tho white men.
He saw that unless their expansion
was stopped Ids own race was doomed.
So lie began uniting tlio tribes of New
Englnnd against them. The colonists
suspected thnhhc'was preparing for
war but he succeeded In deceiving them
until June, 1075, when hs warriors,
contrary to his orders, attacked
Swansea, Mass. Concealment being
no longer possible, Philip "plunged Into
the conflict with salvage fury. Tho
next three months his wnrriors nnd
their allies, tho Narrngansetts, de
si royed 12 of tho 00 towns In Now
Tho "Terror of New Englnnd"
reached the peak of his career at tho
Battle of Bloody Brook near Deerlleld
where he killed 00 colonists. After that
the star of the Wampanoag begaj; to
wane. Wetumoo, his sister-in-law, tho
"Sqnw Sachem of Pocnsset," who had
led 800 warriors Into the field to aid
Philip, was killed by tho colonists who
cut off her head and set It up on a
pole at Taunton, Mass. Then the
chief's wife and son were captured
nnd sold into slavery In tho West In
dies. "My henit breaks now. I am
ready to die," said the great chief.
By now he, with only a few faithful
followers, was fleeing from placo to
place llko a hunted wild animal. Ono
of his wnrriors suggested surrender
and Philip instantly killed him with
one blow of his tomnlmwk. Alder
man, tlio slain wnrrior's brother, im
mediately deserted to. the English and
offered to lend Captain Church to Phil
Ip's hiding place.
On August 12, 1G70, the English sur
rounded the swnmp whero the Wam
panoag, had taken refuge. As, they
closed in tlicy sighted their quarry
speeding nlong a path, ono of tho few
nvenues of escnpe from tho swnmp,
Suddenly Alderman rose up before the
lleelng chief. Ho fired nnd King Phil

Aldermnn's gun had been double

and one for himself I V

"I llko it well," repVjpd tho old
sachem of the Narragansetls. "I shall
die before my heart is soft or I hnve
said anything unworthy of myself."
Canonchet had good reason to liato
the English. They had taken his fa
ther prisoner and turned him over to
ids enemies, tho Mohegans, who had
tortured Mluntoi.omo to death. When
King Philip formed ids confederation
of Mew England tribes agnlnst tho
whites, Canonchet was sympathetic to
the Wampanong's cause, but he did
not take the field immediately. The
colonists suspected him, however, nnd
demanded that he sign a treaty agree
ing to glye up to them nny qf King
Philip's people who lied to him.
"Deliver the Indians of Philip?
Never!" was the chief's indlgnnnt re
ply? "Not a Wampanoag will I ever
give up no, not tlio puring of n Wam
So the colonists sent nn army
against Canonchet and on December
10, 107C, It struck the Narrngansetts
In their fortified town of Sunke
Squaw, It. I. There Canonchet lost n
third of his nation, but with tho re
mainder, he carried the war to tlio
colonists with such fury that his nume
was second only to thnt of King Philip
as n word of terror In New Englnnd.
Finally In April 1070, he was cap
tured. Tho English offered him his
life if he would help them ngnlnst tho
hostile Indians, a proposal which was
met with haughty silence nnd un in
dignant Hash in his eyes, Next they
offered to spnre him If ho would send
orders to Ills people to make peace.
"I nin n saolicm," declared Canon

WHY THE NAME 'MOONSHINE'
in Earlier Years tho Illicit Liquor Wa
Supposed to Be Made Only
America calls the liquor illicitly dis
tilled, especially in the Allcgbnnjr
mountains, "moonshine." Tho appar
ent reason is thnt it is believed to bcr
distilled nt night and secretly trnns
ported without payment of n tax or tho
nuthorlty of official permit. Tho fact
is, of course, thnt the secret stills
work ns hard in day as nt night.
Englnnd used tho word In Blmllar
manner, though not in tho sama
sense. Over Uiero inoonshlno h
liquor thnt lias been smuggled Into
tho country without payment of a tax.
The smuggling is usually dono, by;
smnil boats from tho continent, that
land at lonely shores at night, nnd the?
enrgo is unloaded by tho light of tho
moon. It was this that gave tho liquor
its generic name.
American moonshlno Is raw, un
aged and often uncolored spirits. Brit
ish moonshlno niny be tho finest bran
dy from Franco, the choicest rum frora
Jamaica. In tho British Isles, especially
Ireland, tho popular name for liomo
dlsttllcd spirits is "mountain dew," be
cause it is In the hills thnt it is mador
