Posse Closing in on Crazy

'Capture of Murderous Band la Ex
pected Soon, but Not Without a Den
, perate Fight Three Hundred Ml
' lltlamen Have Them Encordoncd.
Chlttl Harjo (Crazy Snake) was sur
rounded Tuesday in tho North Ca
nndlan bottom, nenr Pierce. Three
hundred militiamen, cowboys nnd dep
uty sheriffs wero closing In upon him
nnd his capture was expected oon.
Scouts had boon keeping In close
touch with Crazy Snake all day and
on Information supplied by them tho
mllltla ofllcers placed their forces In
Mich a way as to drive tho old In
dlnn Into the trap.
Tho news that he was encordoned hy
n wall of men who would not bo like
ly to allow his escape was hurried
Into Camp Hickory by couriers. Im
mediately all was commotion. Be
lieving that they had the main body
of ludlans trapped, with the chief, tho
militiamen dispatched a large detach
ment to Pierce, fifteen miles distant,
on forced march. Those expected to
Join in a death grapple with the old
chieftain. Colonol Hoffman was sure
the Indians would fight, so all tho
troops went heavily nrmed and am
munition wtvjons brought up tho rear.
Colonol Hoffman Issued orders that
bv no chance Bhould Crary Snnko bo
nllowed to slip between the lines, re
alizing that by his capture tho ex
pected mobilization and final stand
of tho Crcoks might bo averted. Peo
plo for miles around rallied to aid In
the attack on tho Indians, as great
fear provalls within a radius of twon-tv-flvo
miles from tho Hickory
One Indian Killed.
' A battle was expected at any mo
ment during the day. but tho only
thing approaching it was 'an attack
by dnputloB on a company of Indians,
in which ono of tho latter was killed,
rlirht canturod and Crazy Snako's
homo burned. Tho fire was started,
floputlcs say, hy a party of Indians tn
order that attention misht bo divert
cd from tho attack noarby.
About twenty-five Indians, mostly
heavily armed, wore captured during
The norvoB of everybody In tho nf-
, fectcd district have been on edge for
hours. Tho people llvo in momentary
fear of outrages being committed by
roving hands. Thoy fear the negroes
nnd half-broods really more than the
Indians. Crazy Snako's men appar
ently planned no campaign of rapine
nnd murdor. Rather thoy sought a
contest with the organized authorities
of tho state, taking what Boemed to
them tho best method of redressing
what thoy regarded as wrongs.
Tho negroes and half-breeds, how
ever, are regarded by tho authorities
(is a bad lot. Almost any sort of out
rage from them, under cover of the
present oxcltomont would not cause
enrnrlso. With these conditions rife,
with a thousand magnified reports of
outrages, with scores of armed bands,
both losrat and outlaw, tramping
through the country, It is not nt nil
surprising that the people nro wrought
un to a hih pitch.
Tf It were not for tho consummate
military skill and ueneralMiln of old
Crazy Snake, a bittle wjuld have
born fnusht. This wns what the mi
litia wanted, and nleo Just what the
chief was most anxious to ovoid So
Crazy Snako, Instead of concentrating
his warriors, as the mllltla hoped
end expected, divide., them Into ,
bands of various sizes, sent them
Kcuriylne hero and thoro, lost himself
to the whltos for the moment in tho
rugged country which he knew in
finitely better than they, and set
about with all tho crafty, -wise In
stint of his savage old head to carry
on an organized campaign that would
mean something. All the resourced
of tho soldiers were set to the end
of preventing all this. Their com
manders, guided by the counsol of
gray frontiersmen, wise In Indian
wnys, knew that If their guerrilla
warfare once got a fair start it would
be a stupendous task to arrest it But
their hnste, great as It was, failed
them. The Indians knew the soldiers
nad arrived the moment they Btopped
from tho train in Honryetta, and
wero miles away when the palefaces
reached their camp at Hickory
How Trouble Started.
This first real Indian uprising of
years has held this portion of the ter
ritory on edge for four days past. It
, has been plotted and prepared for two
months. It broke out last Thursday,
when some deputy sheriffs went to
Henryetta to arrest some negro cattle
tkUves, Thoy wore fired on by negro
nnd half-breed friends of tno criminals
end forced to heat a hasty retreat, A
few hours later they returned with
additional forces nnd wero fired on by
the band, then augmented by a num
ber of Crazy Snake's Indians. In this
fight three wero killed and llvo wound
ed, according to tho official reports,
although it Is thought many more In
dians wero wounded, as scores of shots
wore fired at close quarters. Thij
clash resulted In forty-ono nrrests
Meanwhile Crazy Snake's followers
determined upon an aggressive cam
palgn. Tho chief's plans had to be
prematurely sprung on account of the
unexpected raid of the doputles ot
killed or wounaea. me ste...vr cm
ried a machine gun and had troops
aboard, but tho Arab flro was so se
vere that tho gun was put out of actlpu.

Discovery of Scientist Multiplies Avail

What Is considered a great Industrial
discovery was claimed by Dean George
B. Frnnkfortor of tho college of chem
istry of the University of Minnesota.
; It meanB, ho assorts, that tho United
States will prouueo a nunureu tunes
as much wood pulp paper as was bo
lloved possible and that every cord of
fir timber will yield $10 profit on by
Tho perfected processes consist of
taking small pieces of waste wood or
sawdust, lnying It on a steel incline
over a furnace and subjecting it to a
chemical procoss of distillation. Car
bon disulphide or gasoline is poured
over the sawdust, dissolving the tur
pentine and rosin, which passes off
as gas into a coll of pipes leading to a
tank. The wood pulp remains free
from pitch and suitable, it Is asserted,
for tho manufacturer of paper. Tho
existing method of distillation leaves
tho pulp In the form of charcoal.
