II Is undcrnlood in a quiet way that a
bill has been drawn , and is now in Iho
hands of ono of the senators from Lan
caster county , to bo introduced at an
early day in the senalo. This bill is one
thai will bear Iho closest scrutiny , and is
in the direct interests of the Block yards
compnnyaiid will be largely manipulated
by T. P. Konnard , who is ono of the
heavy owners in the stock yards com
pany. The bill provides for the sale of
certain saline lands which llio stock
yards company now control by leaseand
the sale of them , if it can bo done under
the law , would bo simply marketing at
the present day that which will increase
wonderfully in tlio future , and which
increase would accrue lo Ihodirccl llnan-
cial interest of the Male If allowed lo
remain iho properly of Iho slale , and
which , if this proposed sale could bo
worked through , would put much money
In the purse of llio slock yards company ,
nnd bo one of the greatest specs of the
day. The slalo went out of its way in
llio line of special legislation to grant the
long term lease to thn company of cer
tain state lands , and the proposed at
tempt lo move upon the legislaluro and
Kociiro lands by purchase now would boa
grand financial investment to Iho persons ,
but a direct loss to tlio people.
Jf this bill comes lo the front lo , in either
direct or indirect ways , plaeo stale lands
adjoining Iho city of Lincoln inlo Iho
market for speculators to work upon it
will be advisable to look at all the aflcr-
claps it may contain before serious alien-
lion is given measures of that kind. An
interesting comparison might be made of
present worth and worth two years ago
of land sold by the state forsalt purposes ,
and it would reveal an increase that the
Ktalo lias lost by no means Haltering as a
iinaueial investment. The question of
present sales of stale lands lo help hind

Among Iho recent real estate transfers
that shows the boom in earth at Lincoln
and vicinity the sales of Jiast park are an
illustration. A short time ago this tract
of land , some forty acres , was purchased
bv C. C. Burr and Frank L. Sheldon of
ISlason & Whcodon for $25,000. The
tract is located in Kast Lincoln and valu
able , but not so much so but that this sale
was considered a good ono. Yesterday ,
however , it was stated that Mr. Sheldon
had paid Mayor Burr ? 125,000 for his halt , which lets the mayor double his
investment of a few weeks ago and
gives Sheldon Iho Iract of land at a cash
valuation of $00,000. A twenty-aero
tract of land cast of this East park , it is
ntalcd hi connection with comments on
Ihe park sale , was purchased six weeks
ago by A. W. Jnnsen for Iho sum of
$ ti,000 and he is now closing the trade by
which ho receives $17,000 , for his ? 0,000
purchase another case in which a few
weeks' purchase practically doubles in
value. These are somu of the larger
transactions that Lincoln real estate men

How an Overland Traveler Avenged an In

n llundrod
Dctwccn the years 1S03 and 1S05 a full
thousand people heard the story of Grim
Walker. Thai was during the linrccst
pnrt of our civil war.and minor incidents
wcro speedily absorbed ami forgotten.
1 doubt it there are n seore of peonic liv
ing to-day who can recall thu details of
this singular man's adventures , and I do
not remember that anything save a brief
outline of the massacre of his family ha3
ever appeared in print ,
1 was a pony express rider on the
Overland route. That meant helping to
guard stages , carrying a light mail on
my saddle , forwarding dispatches , tak
ing my turn to acl as agent'of some
stable , and various othur things which
need not be explained. There wcro then
several great trails leading west from
the borders of civilization , and all were
more or less traveled , but the favorite
routes were from St. Joseph and Council
IJlulls , the one being known as the
northern and other as the southern route.
1 was on a route along thu 1'latto river
west of Fort Kearney , which has some
times lifty miles long , and sometimes
ls5 ! , according to the way the Indians
were behaving , and the number of men
we had for service ,
CJrim Walker was a pioneer named
Charles 0. Walker , from near Iowa City.
Ho was a giant in i/.c , nalurallv sour
and taciturn of disposition , and his fam
ily consisted of a wife and three children.
hilo the country was exulted over thu
civil war , and travel by the overland had
almost conui to n htop , except in eases of
necessity , Walker and others formed an
immigrant party to make a push for thu
golden land. When I lirst hoard of them
thcv numbered twenty wagons and sixty
or seventy people , and were on the
Plattc , east of Kearney , which then
dangerous ground. When the outlit
reached Kearney , some were for turning
back ; others for electing a new captain ,
others for settling down near bv and es
tablishing ranches. Jt soumed that there
were three or four different factions in
the party , and several bitter quarrels hld :
resulted. In the then state of all'airs
200 bravo and united men could
have scarcely hoped to reach the
Colorado or Wyoming line , for the
Indians were up in arms on every trail
and thirsting for blood and scalps.
When it was known , therefore , that
Urnn Walker , as ho had come to bu
known , had been elected captain of a
faction and intended to push on at the
head of only seven families , which oould
muster about nine lighting men ,
soldiers , hunters , Indian lighters and
overland men argued and scolded and
predicted. .Not a prediction .could
frighten one of his adherents. It ap
peared to them to be a ease where man
hood and pride were at stake , and when
it was hinted that the military would re
strain them they made secret prepara
tions and departed at night. It was an
awful thing for those bigoted and de
termined men to _ drive their wives and
children , consisting of twenty-two people
ple , to a horrible death , but nothing
short of a battle with the military would
have stopped them.
They left Kearney one night 10 o'clock ,
drawing away quietly and traveling at
their best speed. They could not have
gene ten miles before being discovered
by thu Indians. A party of twenty of us
left over the samu trail at noon next day ,
and wo had gone only fifteen miles when
wo found evidences that the little party ,
which was kcapintr along the I'lattu , had
been attacked. This must have been
about daylight. Soon after sunrise they
had bcn ( driven to shelter in a grove of
eottonwoods , lint before reaelnnsi it one
of the men had been killed and scalped ,
a wagon had broken down and been
abandoned , and htray bullets had killed a
woman and a child as they cowered
down behind the cargo of the wagons.
At 4 o'clock in the attornoon wo came to
the grove , driving away the last of the
savages , but we were too late. Such
a spectacle as wo there beheld was
enough to sicken the heart of the
bravest Indian fighter. The little party
had been attacked by about three hun
dred redskins , and Hie fijrht had lasted
for half a day. As near as wo could lig-
uro from blood spots on the earth four
teen Indians had been killed , nnd there
wuro bloody trails to show that as many
more hail been wounded. The foolhardy
men had died jramo as an offset. We
ma e out that their camp had been car
ried by a charge , and that the last of thu
light had been hand to hand. live of
thu women had been carried oil' into horrible
rible captivity , while all others had been
butchered all save Grim Walker. The
bodies had been cut and hackud and
mutilated in a terrible manner , but we
could have identified Walker by his si/.o ,
oven had ho beun decapitated. Thu im
migrants' horses had all been killed , the
wiigons plundered and burned , and thn
savairus were bundling up some of the
plunder when wo came in sight and
drove them away. All that was left us
was the sad work of burying thu corpses.
A month later we heard that ( Jrim
Walker had escaped from the fight ,
breaking out of thu grove and riding oil'
on a horse just as the conflict closed in ,
Men belonging to thu Overland had met
anil talked with him ua. ° tof Kearney. Ho
had three wounds , but seemed uncon
scious of them as ho bnellv related the
story of the fight , and ho vowed that he
would have the lives of fivu Indians for
every while person who had perished.
Nothing further was heard of him until
June of the following year. I was then
in irovernniunt employ as n scout and
despatch ridtir , and was on the Smoky
Hill fork of thu Kansas rivur , twenty
miles west of I'ort Mcl'horson , riding
with two other scouts , when wo came
upon ( ! rim Walker. Ho had gonu east
after thu massacre , and hud built for
himself a bullet-proof wagon It was a
great eago on wheels , and everything
about it was made of iron. Wlieuls. box" ,
bottom , top every pnrt of it
was millet proof. It was pierced or loop-
lioalcd in lifty places for musketry , von.
tiated at the top , and was drawn by four
muled. The mun must have had consid
erable moans at his disposal to pay for a
vehicle liku that , and he had come all
the way from Council lilulls alonu. Thu
interior was lilted up with a sIcopliiL :
burth , iron lanks for holding food and
water and ho hadcomu hack to thu plains
to kcup his vow. Hut for his grhuucss
thu idea would havu raised a laugh. He
must have been nn route for many lonir
days.and he certainly had passed throned
many perils. Wo huard afterward that
as he reached the fort one- afternoon , ami
it became known that ho would push on ,
every effort was madu to dissuadu him.
1'or a limo ho was silent grim deaf .
Then ho pointed to the noriheast and
said :
"Thero lie iho hones of my children
and friends , anil I will not rest until 1
have avcn/red / thorn thrice over. "
1 hey told him the country was alive
with hobtilcs , and that ovtsry rod of the
\vtiy was beset with perils ; but as the sun
wont down hu harnessed his mules .to thu
iron tongue , climbed into the saddle , and
without u uoU of farewell to any ono ho
rode lo the we t in the gathering gloom
more grim , more clclLrmincd , more of
a di-vil than ix human . He had
traveled n good slnro of the night
over a country in which death
lurked in every lavino , but the watchful
savages had not espied him. Ho had
traveled until mid-afternoon next day
along n trail where savages outnumbered
the snakes twenty to one , but somehow
they had missed mm. Wo wcro riding
at full speed for the fort , keeping the
shelter of the dry ravines and the valleys
and expecting nt any moment to be pur
sued when we ran upon Grim Walker.
His wagon stood tinou the open prairie ,
at least a half a mile from thu river and
the shelter of the eottonwoods. The four
mules ha1 ! been unharnessed and turned
out to graze , and the man was cooking
his supper at a campliro , the smoke of
which would draw Indians for ten miles
around. Our astonishment , when wo
found him there alone , kept us dumb for
a few minutes. Wo sat on our horses
and stared at him , and ho greeted onr
presence by a Micro nod. When 1 recog-
iiizt-d him as Urim WalKer I began to
suspect thu enterprise he had on foot ,
and after I had put a few questions ho
briefly explained :
" 1 am hero to kill Indians. You can
look my wagon over if you care to. "
It was what 1 have described. Ho bad
a barrel or more of fresh water ,
n lot of flour and meat , a
small steve to cook on , and a perfect
arsenal of lirearms. It was evident that
the Indians could not get nt him with
bullets nor tomahawk , nor lire , anil it
would take weeks to slarve him out.
There was only one thing that troubled
the man. His stock would bo killed oil'
nt oneo when ho was attacked , and hu
would then have no way of
moving his wagon. Wu helped
him out of his dilemma by agree
ing to take the animajs to thu fort. The
harnesses were piled into his house , and
it was understood that he would come
for ( ho mules when tie wanted Ilium , lie
lint' a compass , and wo gavu him the ex
act bearings , and as we rode away hu
was preparing to toast another piece of
meat , seeming utterly unconcerned over
the dangers of his surroundings. As to
what happened him during the next
three weeks I had a few meagro details
from his own lips , but plenty of informa
tion from warriors who afterward be
came "friendly. " That is , when licked
out of their boots half a dozen timestheir ,
villages destroyed , many of their ponies
shot , and their squaws and children
driven to temporary starvation , they
cried for peace in order to recruit and
maku ready for another campaign.
The. cauiplire which Urim Walker built
saved the three of us from being am
bushed. A warrior told me that forty
savages were between us and thu fort ,
when the smoke led thorn to bulk'vo that
a large parly of immigrants must be
camped in the bottoms. It could only bn
a large party which would dare lo build
such a lire in a hostile country. _ The
warriors were all drawn oft" by a signal
to attack the larger game , and before
sundown that evening
TWO it'Niitii ! : ) Muunntors IIDSKIKS ; :
were opuning thuir eyes very \\ido at
sight of the one lone wagon anchored
on the plains under their nosus. How
did it got there ? Whore were thu horses
or mules ? Was it occupied ? They must
have asked themselves these questions
over and over again , but lliero stood the
wagon , grim , silunt and mysterious. The
whole band finally moved down for n
closer inspection , believing the vehicle to
have beun abandoned , and hopeful that
something in the shape of plunder had
been left behind. They had come closu
they had entirely surrounded tliu vehicle
When a sheut of Iliinio darted from
one of the port holes , and Grim
Walker had begun to tally hi
victims. Ueforo thu redskins could gut
out ot range hu had killed seven of them ,
using shotguns and buckshot. It was
only when they came to return llic liru
that the savages discovered what sort of
a vehicle had been hauled out tlieru
among them. They wasted hundreds of
bullets before they ceased linng.ani ) wilh
a rillu Walker killed two more of them
before night set in.
The superstitious nature of thu Indian
would havu driven him away had hu not
burned for revenge. And , too , it was
argued Hint the wagon must contain
something of great value to havu been
built that way , and greed was added to
thu thirst for vengeance. They believed
that tins bottom ot the box , at least , was
of wood , and abqut llireu hours after
dark a number of warriors , each Having
a bunch of dry grass under his arm.crept
forward to Iho vehicle lo start a liruundur
it. They crept as noiselessly as .serpents ,
but before a man of them had passed
under.a double-barrelled shotgun belched
forth its contents and two more bucks bet
out for thu happy hunting grounds. Next
lay , refusing to believe that a wagon
could bo bulict-proof , the Indians
opened a fusilade , which-was maintained
for I wo hours. 'JJioy were behind
Ireus and logs and oilier cover , and not a
shot was provoked in response. Various
schemes were concocted to gut at the
wagon , which was finally believed to
contain a party of hunters , but none
promised success. At noon , however , a
number of young warriors volunteered
to carry out a plan. There- were twelve
of them , and they weru to approach thu
wagon in a widu cirulu. The idea waste
to sei/.c and up.-iot it , and thus render the
occupants harmless. 'Jhu circle was
made and it gradually narrowud until
thu signal for a rush was made.
Thu"man within grim , silunt , watch
ful let the circle close and the warriors
hoi/.o thu wheels before hu opened liru.
It would havu tnkoii a do/.on stout men
to have lifted ono of the wheels oil'thu
ground. Ho shot down thrcu of ilium
and the olhurs lied in terror , and half an
hour later the seigu was abandoned and
thu Indians .wuro moving oil' . For two
long weeks thu wagon remained in that
spot , tin object of curiosity to scouts and
hunters an object of awe and mcnacu to
tno savages. 'Ihun , onu morning jufit at
daylight , Grim \rlllknr came into l''ort
JSlcPhurson for his mules , Hu was going
lo move Ins iron cage to now Holds. Hu
replenished his provisions and niMdo ot
two hours was off again , having spoken
less limn lifty words during his stay. It
seemed as if ho had grown tailor , Ifurcor
moro grim and rovnngeful. Tliuro was
somclhing pitiful in Jaiowing thai he
alonu hud survived Hip jinassacru ; .some
thing t > pp'lm- : ) ' : the knowledge ihat hu
hud become a Nemesis whom nothing
but blood would satisfy .n
The wagon was moved north to the
headwater of the Saline Kork , Ono who
has been over Iliu route will wondur how
it could have beun don'tl' . ' It was attacked
thuro ouu forenoon about 10 o'clock by a
baud of thirty warriors who had beun
raiding on the Solomon's rivur.The mi.ii's
were staked out and GHm Walker sat at
his camp liru. The warriors chnrged up
on horntibuok believing they had a hunt
ers' or fciirvuyors' outtil , and whilu tlu-y
stampeded and soc-ureij thu mules four of
thum wurc killed from.the loop holes of
the cago. They eamu b'ack again and
another was killed and two weru
wounded. Then they discovered what
sort of an unumy they hud to dual with
and withdrew. Grim Walker ami his
wagon remained there for a month.
When the Indians would no longer eomo
to him hu sot out in suareh of thum and
becamu a vuritahl ( < terror. Twenty dif
ferent warriors whom I interviewed be
tween 1W11 and 18157 told me that \ \ alier ;
was more feared than a hundred Indian
fighters. Hu killed everything that hu
uame to that was Indian , including
squaws , ponies , children , and dogs. Ko
camp felt safe from him. Hu had the
ferocity of a hungry tiger and
the cunning of n serpentHe used
his iron wagon as a headquarters , and
made raids for fifty miles around. During
thu summber our scouts saw Walker or

alive on September 0 , on the Itcpub-
licfm river , when ho had a fresh Indian
scalp nt Ins belt. He had then blown up
his Wagon with gunpowder and aban
doned it , although hu did not state the

breast and lilsritlo by his sido. His eyes
wcro wide open , as if looking nt the
buzzards sailing above him , and wo soon
satisfied ourselves that ho died from
natural causes. Ho had n dozen scars
nnd wounds , but discaso had overpow
ered him , or his work had been done. He
had exacted a full measure of vengeance.
Hotter for thu Indians had thev let his
immigrant party pass on in peace , for hu
