tho death of tho great Sioux cniof. Philanthro

topeo Insisted that Sitting Hull wna murdered and
that tho blood of tho havago wub upon tho head
of lio nation.
It was left to Col. Kdward O. Fcchet, now pro
feasor of military sclonco nt the University of
Illinois, to learn tho truth of tho shooting of Sit
ting Bull nnd to glvo knowledge of it to tho peo
ple. Col. (then captain) Fechct mado ono of tho
hardest rides known to tho troops or tho plnlns
before ho secured tho facts In tho caso of tho
pnsslng of tho great Sioux chief to tho hnppy
Sitting Hull's homo wna In a log hut on tho
Standing Kock lndlnn reservation of North
Dakota. In tho summer of 1890 ho gath
ered many of his braves about him
and told them in plcturcsquo Sioux iangungo
that a Messiah was to como who would lend tho
Sioux nation to victory; that tho whites would bo
annihilated; that tlio buffalo would como back,
and that tho red man would onco more tako pos
session of tho enrth.
Through tho medicine mon Sitting Hull worked
so upon the feelings nnd tho superstitions of his
warriors thnt they camo to believe that by woar
lug certain gurmonta which wcro cnlled ghost
shirts their bodies would be safe from tho bullets
of tlio soldiers.
When Gen. Miles learned of tho teachings of
Sitting Hull and of their rnpid spread, tho chief's
nrrust was ordored. Accordingly Indian police
leil by -Lieut. Hull Head and Sergt. Shave Head
wero dispatched from Fort Yntca to arrcat tho
chlof at his log hut miles away. Capt. Fechot of
tho Klghth cavalry was ordored with his com
mand, consisting of two troops, nnd, If niomory
servos, two light field pieces, to make a night
march to Oak Creek, about 18 mlloa from Sitting
Hull's house, thoro to rccolvo tho prisoner when
ho was turned over by Lieut. Hull Head.
Capt. Fcchet and his mon reached tho rondoz
vous nt 4:30 a, in. on ono of tho coldest mornings
of n Dakota December day. There was no sign
of tho Indian pollco, nor yet of the scout which
Dull Head was to Bond In ndvanco to Inform
the cavalry olltcor of his coming.
Fechefa soldier Instinct told him at onco that
there must bo trouble His mon hnd had tho
hardest kind of n night rido, but they wero will
ing, and ho pushed forward rapidly. Aftor ho
bad mado bovcral miles ho was met by a scout
who was riding llko mad. Tho runner told Fochot
that all tho Indian pollco who had gono to arrest
Sitting Hull bad been killed by tho ghost dancers,
and that there woro thousands upon thousands
of them fully nrmod and In their war paint ready
Fechot looked ovor his Bmall command and
w?nt ahead at full gallop, hla only thought bolng
to eavo such of tho policemen aa might bo alive,
I and giving no heed to tho other thought that
ahead of htm might bo overwhelming uumbora
1 of tho savages and tho fato of Custer. It was
a terrlblo rldo from that tlmo on.
I When tho morning was a llttlo advanced tho
men of tho command hoard firing, which seemed
(to como from different points. On thoy wont uu
l Ul they camo to the blow of tho hill. Helow
thorn at a distance
was tho house of
Sitting Hull, nnd In
front of It, somo
hundreds of yarda
away, waa a hordo
of ghost dancers en
gaged In emptying
their rifles Into the
log building, from
which camo a feoblo
Capt. Fcchet had his Hotchklsa thrown Into
nctlon and ho dropped a 8hell in front of tho
ghoat dancers, and thon tho command charged
down the hill.
The shell had Its frlghtonlng effect on tho
savages, who held aloof though still pouring in
their fire, which wns answered by tho soldiers
as Fcchet himself took a rapid course to tho log
house, with his llfo In liis hands ovory stop of
Insldo tho hut wero found thrco of tho lndlnn
-policemen dead and thrco mortally wounded. Tho
wounded, reaolved on exacting a price for their
coming denth, wero still using their rides ngalnst
tho besieging foe. The soldlora finally drove tho
savages to lllcht.
Tho few that woro left living of tho llttlo forco
of Indian pollco told this story. Lieut. Hull Head
had arrested Sitting Hull nnd had led tho chlof
from hla cnbln only to bo confronted by hundreds
of crazed savages. Catch-tho-Hoar and Strlke-tho-Kottlo,
two of Sitting Hull's mon, strode through
the Indlun ranks, raised their rlllos and fired.
Hull Head was shot through tho body. Dying, ho
turned quickly nnd killed Sitting Hull. Strlko-tho-Kcttlo
killed Sergt. Shavo Head. Instantly Po
liceman Lono Mnn killed Catch-tho-near. Thon

Rldgo Sioux, who went on tho warpath In Do
comber, 1890, woro a fow Btalwart warriors of tho
tribo of tho Northern Choyonnes. That tho Choy
onnes braves woro so limited in number was due
to tho fact that 12 years boforo thonntlon, oxlled
nnd longing for Its old homo, hnd- mot with prac
tical annihilation In tho attempt to regain it.
Tho Northern ChovjnncB hnd boon sont to a
rcsorvntlon In tho Indian territory following ono
of tho uprisings ngnlnst tho whites. Tholr hearts
they left behind thorn In their old homo nnd tho
warriors yearned to return.
Lato In tho fall of tho year 1878 tho Choyenno
braves, taking advantage of tho temporary ab
aonco of tholr soldier gunrdlans, gathered to
gether tholr women nnd their children nnd daehod
northward In tho direction of tho land whore
their fathers had lived from tho tlmo back of the
beginning of tradition.
Thoy had boon told by tho Indian ngonta and
by tho soldlors, who acted under orders, that thoy
never could tako tho trail back to tho north,
but thoy paid no hoed to what waa told them, but
gathering tholr possessions thoy Bot out.

The Cheyonnes broko away. A battalion of in
fantry was thrown across tholr tracks but tho wily
savages eluded all savo a fow of tho soldiers,
who in a sharp skirmish lost tholr commander,
Tho trail led to ono of tho low hills that chain
tho reservation. Tho Cheyennea had taken rofugo
near tho summit in a natural hollow. Tho Bldea of
tho hills roso sheer and sllppory to tho lurking
placo of tho savages. It was a placo admirably
adapted for defense. A fow men could hold it
against a regiment.
Capt. Wessels, in commnnd of the cavalry, saw
that tho attempt to tako tho hilltop by assault
would bo to aacrlflco tho lives of half of his mon.
Ho threw a cordon around tho hill, knowing that
tho warriors could not escape, and trusting that
in a fow hours hunger would forco them to sur
render. Meantime tho Choyonnes wero actlvo.
Thoy picked off mnny a trooper, and at noon on
tho day following tho night of their flight a ball
struck Capt. Wossola In tho head. Tho wound was
not serious, but Its effect waa to mako captain
and mon engor for n charge. Capt. Weasola wont

them up tho slippery hlllsldo In tho faco of tho

to tho amazement of tho troopers, tho wholo band
of Choyenno warriors, naked to tho walat and
yolllng llko dovlls, camo dashing down tho hill
side straight nt the body of cavalry. Tho Indians
had thrown away their rifles and wero armed only
with knives. They woro going to tholr death and
they know It, but doath was better than a return
to tho reservation which thoy hated.
Wessels and his troopors of tho Third cavalry
tried to spare tho Choyonnes, but tho warrloro
would havo death at any cost. With their knlvoa
thoy plunged into a hand-to-hand conflict with tho
troopers and boforo thoy were slain they exacted
a prlco for tholr dying.
Whon tho tlmo came for tho burial of tho In
