It limy revive the rather unpleiiMint no
toriety which the murquls enjoyed sonic
yearn ago when he was darkly charged
by the prefer } of the City of Muxico with
huvhiir iiiHtiated ( no Ifbsi than four
inurdcrH. How truthful thcbo charges *
were no one but the iimrqulH will pur-
hups ever know. The mutter quieted
down , and except for occasional hints
in the Mexican papers , seems to have
been almost forgotten.
The history of the marqulH would fur
nish a plot for a sutisiitioruil novel that
would gladden the heart of the small
boy. Thirty years ago you might have
bought n box of matches from the pres
ent iiiiii-quiM on the streets of the Mexi
can seaport , fiunynuiH. Now ho Is "ono
of the wealthiest men in Spain , " and atone
ono time aspired , it is said , to the hand
in marriage of th youngest sister of the
late AlfoiiM ) , king of Spain. Years ago
ho was .Forgo Carmon.i , the mutch ped-
dlor. Now he is the Marquis do Sun
Hasilio , over whom Now York title
worshippers will ruvo when ho visits
this city. Even as a match boy the
marquis was ambitious , thou h his am
bition never , oven in its wildest ( lights ,
soared to a king's sister in those days.
He only aspired to become a mi'rchan-
difce vender on a larger scale than his
retail operations in matches allowed.
And his ambition was satislied. By the
exercise of the natural shrewdness
which ho posseted , and by dint of close
application to business ho soon found
himself the proprietor of u well-stocked
little store in which matches were only
an unimportant factor.
His business flourished , and with it
his ambition. Ho now aspired to the
military. The plebeian pursuits of a
tradesman were beneath his dignity.
Accordingly he e-old out hiy matches ,
good will , etc. , nnd with u part of the
proceeds of the sale lie purchased a lieu
tenant's commission in the army of the
lie was now a full-fledged son of Mars ,
and he did honor to his epaulets.
In the ranks of the republicans , under
Jaurcz , ho did noble service against the
French invaders under Maximilian.
\Vhero the lighting was fiercest , and
the bullets Hew thickest , Lieutenant
Carmona could always be found.
Ho became a captain. Ho became a
colonel. Then he was given command
of n brigade , whoso commander waa
temporarily disabled.
This WIIH the present marquis' oppor
tunity , or rather ono of his opportuni
ties , for he has had many.
His ambition , which had made him
forsake the humble but honest catling
of u match peddler , had kept pact ) with
his advancement in life. In fact , it had
always kept a slight lead on his ad
vancement. Ho was in command of a
position of vital importance to the re
publicans. To dislodge him from this
position was almost impossible forMaxi-
millian. Now or never was Carmona's
chanco. And ho grasped it with both
Ho sold out to the invaders.
For this piooo of treachery Maximilian
rewarded him by making him master ol
the horho. Master ot the horse to Maxi-
mlliun I , emperor of Mexico , erstwhile
a matchboy on the streets of Guaymas ,
Quito a little change. His was the mosl
desirable position at the court of the
Austrian emperor of Mexico. Ho lived
in the City of Mexico and rolled in
wealth aim luxury. Ho became n grcal
favorite with Maximilian , and was b.\
many considered the most powerful
man at court. Wealth poured in on
him from all sides. Everybody wiu
anxious to gain the good will of the
master of the horse , and ho was in nc
wise bacKward in letting them see hov
they could do this. Through his pockol
they could Hud a never-failing route t <
his heart.
Then came the crash. Through the
intervention of the United States , Napoleon
poloon of France was coerced into with
drawing his soldiers , whom he had ben
over to assist Maximilian in setting u ]
his throne. Now it was the republican !
against royalists in Mexico. The libera
party , with Juarez at its head , agains
the Church party , with the foroigi
jn-inco at his head. The republican !
triumphed , and Maximilian was shot
With the fatal six shots which rang ou
Maximilian'B doom at Quorotaro , all o
the tlno things of this life with whicl
his master of the horse had surrounde *
himself wore swept away. His palace
his country place , his carriages , hi
horses , all of which Maximilian hai
Uindly transferred from the posscssioi
of his "rebellious subjects" to him , all
all were gone. The unfeeling "rebels' '
confiscated thorn. Once moru ho wa
plain Jurge Carmona , with not a penn ;
in his pocket.
What was ho to do now ?
Contact with all the fine people a
Maximillian's court hud polished hi
tastes to that extent that to go back t <
his old honest calling of sollini
matches to the walking public ho founi
impossible. The very idea nauseatci
him. No ; he would live like a gontlc
I } man by his wits.
'For years he knocked about the Cit ;
of Mexico. As a card sharp ho scoroi
liis greatest triumphs. Ho was a complete
ploto master of all those little trick
which are employed bynotovor-scrupul
' ' " when their
ous 'gentlemen" pocket
books nro slim. But as a card sharp h
excelled. He could produce the aces o
opiules , or the king of clubs , or the qucoi
of diamonds , or the jack of hearts , who !
they wore most wanted , with a grac
and skill berne only of long practice
Ho became t-o proficient that after
while his victims failed him. Ho wa
such a regular winner thnt play
ing with mm became monotonou
to his former lambs. Then ho be
came shabby. Dreadfully shabby for
"gentleman. "
Ho was getting into dospcrato strait
when another one of his great opportur
ities turned up. And ho pursued it wit
all the vim of an old huntsman to whoi
gamci had become scarce.
M. Vcbtogui , a I'Yonclimun who ha
bccoinu immensely wealthy ovornigl
by the discovery of a silver mine on
piece of land ho owned , died after mai
ryinjj hU cook , a Mexican woman , IK
Kcttihij three children boys. His coo
must liavo been a most excellent cool
for , as his widow , he loft half of his foi
tune , amounting to nearly $112,000,000.
This was Cunnoiui'a' opportunity
Through the peed Mme , Vwtegut ho
would rapidly replenish his pockets. Ho
would marry the former cook of the late
lanuMited Vchtcgul.
No sooner Mild than done , or at any
rate begun. The Marquis do Basillo
never was a man to let grass grow under
his feet. He managed to meet the be
reaved widow when she had worn her
weeds for nix months. The buxom
widow was charmed with the polished
Senor Carmona , who was clothed in his
most elegant court manners and a new
suit of clothes obtained for the occasion
from a confiding tailor.
He pressed his suit from the start with
an ardor worthy of the big stake in
sight. Mine. Vestegui was willing , nay.
she was more than willing , to become
wife to the gentlemanly Carmona ,
whoso supreme elegance fairly awed
her. But there was an obstacle.
The departed Vestogui had left his
relict half of his fortune unencumbered
in any wav. He had , however , ap
pointed a famous lawyer , Jose Bolado ,
executor of his will , and Bolado was
managing the estate for the joint ben-
cllt of the widow and the three child
ren , to whom the other half had been
willed. The wldow'Blovo for her ardent
admirer was great , but her respect for
Bolado was greater. His iron will , his
determination and his superior intelli
gence had inspired her with a fear of
him which not oven her love for Car
mona could mauler. And Bolando
frowned down on the proposed union.
Ho would have none of It.
Here was a seemingly insurmountable
tumbling block in the way of Car-
nona's dreams and desires. Ho pleaded
vlth the widow. Ho implored her in
ho name of his overwhelming passion
o wed. Day after day his love was
loured out in her willing cars but it
ivailcd not. If Senor Bolado would
inly consent , yes , then but Scnor
5olado would not.
For months matters stood thus. Then
one day in broad daylight on one of the
most frequented streets in the city , in
'rout of the National libriry , Honor
lolado was murdered. Ho was shot
down in cold blood by a young Mexican
of the lower classes , Ignacio Romaics by
lame by name , who was employed as a
H'akeman on the Vera Cruz road. The
ahsin was captured red-handed and
> laccd in jail.
During the night he escaped. Gold ,
and much gold , opened his prison doors
nnd lie walked out.
Three weeks after Lawyer Bolado had
jccn buried Jorge Carmona and Mine.
Vestegni wore married , and immedi-
itely after the ceremony they left for
Europe with the three children of the
woman. For live years nothing was
"icard of them in the City of Mexico ox-
: ept through the newspapers. From
Lhis source it was learned that shortly
after the arrival of the couple in Europe
the wife of Senor Carmona died rather
suddenly , leaving her entire fortune to
her husband. The wealthy widower
spent his mourning year in Spain , and
during this year two of his stcp-ehil-
ilron died. The third boy left his btep-
lather and went to England with friends
ifter his second brother's death. With
hiin the marquis is now engaged in liti
gation for the estate of the two dead
Some months after his bereavement ,
Jorge Carmona was made a marquis by
Queen Isabella. Why this honor was
conferred upon him was not learned.
But the former matchboy was now a
Well , at tlie expiration of five years ,
the marquis suddenly appeared again in
Mexico. His arrival , by some strange
coincidence , happened to bo just ten
days after the police had succeeded in
recapturing Hosales , the murderer of
Lawyer Bolado , for whom they had been
laying in wait all these years. The
murderer had been caught lurking
about his old haunts and promptly
jailed. Precautions wore taken this
time against that powerful key gold ,
which unlocked his jail door before.
Fourteen days after his capture the
trial of the young assassin was begun.
All the best talent in the city had been
retained for his defense. The Marquis
do Busilio was never out of the room
while the trial was in progress.
The prosecution presented its case.
They claimed the defendant was a hired
assassin. They proved ho had never
known the dead man , had had no deal
ings with him , consequently ho had no
object in killing him unices it was for
pay. The prisoner's escape had been
compassed immediately after his cap
ture by the free Ube of money , yet ho
was notoriously poor at the time of the
homicide , working for 76 cents a day.
Then they proved that the prisoner ,
after escaping from jail , had fled to Eu
rope , where , during the flvo years in
tervening , ho had lived like u prince ,
spending money lavishly , traveling
from place to place. Where did the
means como from to pay for this unless
it was part of the blood money received
for murdering BlondoV Whore did the
money como from to pay for the array
of legal talent assembled for the de
fense V Surely not from the defendant.
They rovitfwed Blonde's blamolcs life.
They brought out all the events of hie
stewardship of the Vestegui estate ; his
influence over the widow ; his opposition
to her marriage with Jorge Carmona ,
now the Marquis do Basilio , who , they
pointed out , was present taking a great
interest in the trial. They wont beyond
Bojado's death and showed that the mar
riage to which ho had boon an obstacle
was consummated a few weeks after the
murder. Here they rested their case.
The defense admitted the killing ol
Bolado by Rosales , hut claimed it waf
an accident. The defendant was shoot
ing at another man , a brother brakeman -
man , who had crossed him in a love
affair. But this brakemun was dead 01
had disappeared , and they could nol
prove his presence on the street at the
time Bolado was killed. The able law
yers for the defendant labored hard , but
had a hopeless task. Their client was
sentenced to death. A month afterward
ho was shot. While ho wus standing
before the open grave , ready to receive
him , when the six rifles loaded for his
execution pointed at him , thi
judge before whom ho was tried asUet
him if ho had any confession to make
before ho died.
"None , " replied the doomed man.
"Did any ono hire you to do the deet
for which you nro about to dio'j ? " Answer

A Review of the Trouble , Its Causes ,
and Probable Outcome.
Hitting Ittill Was Oppo-icil to the Out

General James S. Brisbcn , writes to
the Chicago Times from FortMcICinney
as follows :
The Crow Indians who have been cut
ting up such a row , live in the south
eastern portion of Montana , where they
have a reservation embracing 4,713,000
acres. Their reservation commences at
the mouth of Big Horn river on the
east , and extends west along the south
bank of the Yellowstone river for over
two hundred miles. It embraces ono of
the richest regions of the United States ,
and takes in the famous Big Horn coun
try. Fully 13,000,000 acres of the Crow
lands are tillable , and the Crows are ,
agriculturally speaking , the richest
tribe of Indians in our country. They
do not till the lands , however , and are
lazy and indolent. A few years ago ,
when I knew thorn , they cultivated less
than 600 acres of their vast domain.and
the white intruders of over 1,500. There
has been little change. The Crows
huvo over 12.000 head of horses. 500
mules , 800 cattle , and a few sheep. They
used to sell vast numbers of bulTulo
robes , nnd oven as late as 18S3 sold $7-
000 worth. But the buffalo has gone ,
and now they rely almost wholly on
Uncle Sam's rations for subsibtance.
The Crows number { 1,1100 souls , of
whom 1.500 arc males and 1,700 females.
Perhaps 1,000 of the males are old and
infirm , or too young to light , and in no
event could they put over 500 to 000
warriors in the field.
Formerly the Crows made it their
proudest boast that they had
except in self-defense , and I guess this
boast wus true. When I Knew them the
Crows were under the government of
Iron-Bull and Blackfoot , two eminent
and wise chiefs. Blackfoot was ono of
ho ablest Indians I over knew. A man
of largo frame with a good head , ho
was calm and dignified , and instantly
comprehended all questions. In man
ners and appearance ho always re
minded mo of George II. Thomas.
Bluckfoot's knowledge of law was
considerable , although ho could
not read. Ho wus u natural-born states
man , and had ho been a white man
nstead of an Indian would huvo been a
United Stutes senator or attained to
some other high public position. Blackfoot -
foot died some years ago , a nil his death
wus an irreparable loss to the Crow
nation. . Ho wus to Iron Bull what Bis-
inarck is to the Gorman Emperor Wil
liam. Iron Bull , I am told , died soon
iftor his great secretary of state ex
pired , and wus buried beside him. The
Crows huvo always boon the firm allies
of the whites , anil aided them in their
wars against the Sioux. Terry , Miles ,
Gibbon , Ouster , and Stanley huvo all
used the Crows an scouts , and they huvo
ilono good service in aiding the United
States troops. Many of them huvo worn
the blue and. . know the power of the
United Stutes , and it is almost incredi
ble that they should have gone to war.
In the summer of 1875 some white men
who hud gone down the Yellowstone to
find the head of navigation and build a
town , fixed the mouth of Big Horn us
the highest point to which steamboats
could iibcend in the Yellowstone river.
and laid out a town. They were on
lands claimed by Silting Bull , and as
soon as ho heard of it the great Sioux
chief ordered the intruders to leave the
country. They paid no attention to
Sitting Bull , but hastened to complete
a strong fort known as Fort Pease. It
was on the north bank of the Yellow
stone and about six miles below the
mouth of the Big Horn. The remains
of this fort can still be seen there.
In November , 1875 , Sitting Bull sud
denly appeared before the fort with
some four hundred warriors and at
tacked it. Some men who were out
cutting timber were killed , but the garrison
risen made a vigorous defense and soon
drove off the Indians. Next da.y Sitting
Bull returned with more Indians and
renewed the fight. The battle contin
ued almost daily through the months of
November and December , when the
garrison found their provisions running
low. The original garrison had con-
bistcd of forty-six men , of whom six
hud been killed and nine wounded.
They were beginning to get discour
aged , but held on until February , 1870 ,
when , finding they must starve or got
help , two bravo men , Paul McCormack
and ono other , whoso name I have now
forgotten , determined to sally out and if
possible reach the settlements , then 200
miles distant. They succeeded , and on
the 19th of February , 1870 , McCormack
reached my , Fort Ellis , Mont. , and
reported the situation of the men at
Fort Peaso. I at once telegraphed to
General fcVry , then commanding the
dopnrtmcnH'f Dakota at St. Paul , and
ho ordered mo to go at once with all my
force to the relief of
Having only four companies of cuvalry
with which to confront over two thou
sand Indian warriors , I culled on the
governor of the. territory for assistance ,
and ho authorized the organization ol
two companies of militia. The citizens
of Gullutin county responded nobly tt
my call , and on February I marched
from Fort Ellis with four companies ol
cavalry and two citi/on companies , ]
still had under five hundred fighting
men , nnd , feeling uneasy , I sent u run
ner to the Crow agency to ask Iron Bull
to aid mo. The whole Crow nation re
sponded that they wore ready , and the
agent , Dexter Clapp , came with till his
employes to join mo. Wo mot the Crow

they kept down the south bank while
wo Kept down the north bunk. Good-
heat , u Crow chief , reported to mo with
forty braves to uct us scouts and an ad
vance guard to the main body of troops.
They did excellent service , being up
and away at daylight , and not return
ing until utter dark. Some of them
came buck twenty miles to camp. We
relieved Fort Pease , taking out bixtecn
white men ( all there were loft ) and ono
colored man. Ou our approach , the
Sioux Indians fell back , uncovering the
fort. Tuoy sent mo word thnt they dii
not want to fight , but wished mo to take
the bad white mou in the fort awaj
and out of their country. When
wo loft the fort , and before
wo were out of sight of it , wo taw
rolling up and the fort in flames. The
green cottonwood logs burned slowly
but the Indians fired it again am
again , until they had nearly consumet
it. And thus ended old Fort Penso am
the first attempt at settling thu lowoi
Yellowstone valley. The Crow Indian
worn greatly disgusted at not having i
fight or u chunco to steal tome horses
and when I reached Pompoy's Pillar
cut thum loose and told them to go bad
ml fight the Sioux , nnd
heard afterward that the Sioux ex
uded them , and , when they came , fell
ipon them und killed nearly ouo-fourth
of the raiding party.
When I returned tcj the settlements
vnr hud alreudy been declared uguinst
ho Sioux , und General Gibbon , with a
oluinn of infantry , was marching from
' \ > rt Shuw to inv poit , Fort Kills. Dis-
wilding the militia , I joined General
Gibbon with the four troops of cavalry ,
i ml we murchcd down the Yellowstone
alley for Sitting Bull's country. Sit
ing Bull was then tit the mouth of
L'onguo river , where Miles City now
stands. As wo again approached the
Crow agency the Crows came out to
meet us , and invited us to visit tholr
illuge , fifteen miles up the Stillwuter.
General Gibbon , myself , nnd one or two
stall officers visited the camp , and spent
ho night there. The HCUIICH of that
light i shall never forgot , and it would
occupy more than the space allowed for
his letter to describe them. General
ribbon was a great chief In the eyes of
the Crows , and they vied with each
ithor iu doing him honor.

Crune-In-the-Sky's daughter , and wo
went to f-eo her. She was indeed a

ihat so line u girl should bo compelled
to marr.v u buck Indian and settle down
in the wilderness she said archly :
"Oh , but I am not going to murry un
Indian. I am going to marry some nice
white gentleman. Won't you send some
nice white gentleman to buy me from
my father and marry moV
"What do you want for this girl ? " I
usked Crnno-In-The-Sky. her father.
"Six ponies , or two yood American
horses , " he replied.
"About two hundred and fifty or three
hundred American dollars , ' ' 1 said.
"Ho simply nodded his head. "
"Cheap enough , ' ' I replied. "And
don't you forget , " said Miss Crane in-
tho-Sky , as wo Imdo her good night. 1
have since learned that Mis' . Craiio-in-
the-Sky is married to n Crow buck und
livi"g happily in her tribe : so I suppose
she never got her white American gen
tleman whom she coveted.
Many years ago , when Colonel Bonnc-
villo got loit in the Kocky mountains
with his command , ho disbanded a com
pany composed mostly of Freiii'h-Oana-
dians , and tlioy made their way to the
Crows. Many'of those men had to live
with the Crows and in thecourieof time
married Crow women and raised fami
lies' . These French Crow women , the
descendants of Uonncvillo'ssoldiers , are
often seen , and some of them are
They have the peculiar French shrug
of the shoulders , and are quite light ,
with regular features and fine forms.
Old Pere Chcin , who died a few years
ago at an advanced age , claimed to bo
one of Bonnevillo's soldiers , und hud a
largo family. He said he knew the
trail to Washington , and could ride it
any day. Ho did not think it was very
far to the capital and knew of no way to
got there except on horseback he had
never seen the cars , and never know
anything about a railroad train unlc SB
possibly the Northern Pacific came
along just before his death.
In 187i ( there was u fine looking
Frenchman with General Gibbon named
Lu Forgo , who claimed to be u Crow and
hud u Crow wife. General Gibbon had
a hundred Crow scouts with him in 1870
und loaned six of these to Custer just
before the mussucrc. Three of these
were with Custer and three with TJeno
in the battle of the Litttle Big Horn.
Two of these with Custer were killed ,
und the third , Curlcy , escaped. He
was the sole survivor of Custer's com
mand , and wus with him in the battle.
Of this there is no doubt , us 1 sent him
with General Custor by General Gib
bon's order , und I saw Cm-ley after the
buttle und talked with him about it.
I think ho is still living with the Crows.
grew out of a dilttoulty about horse-
stealing. For years the ( 'rows and Pie-
guns have raided each other for the pur
pose of steuling horses a noble occupa
tion in the eyes of both tribas. The
Crows wore ut greut disudvuntago , how
ever , as the Pieguns liveit near the Brit
ish line , and whenever they got a good
haul of Crow horses thcw would run
them over the line , where , of course ,
the Crows could not follow
them. On the other hand ,
when the Crows got a good haul
of Piegan ponies they would bringthem
homo , and in duo time the Plegans
would follow and lay claim to them ,
often securing them. A short time ago
the Crows stole a lot of Piegan horses ,
and in duo time the Piegans claimed
them , and the agent ordered them to
bo given up. This the Crows
refused to do , and there wus
much trouble about it. The
agent finally ordered the arrest of the
seventeen Crows who had been engaged
in horse stealing , and they resisted the
arrest. The Indian police being unable
to curry out the agent's orders and ef
fect the arrest , he appealed to the mili
tary for aid , und a company of troops
was sent from Fort Custer. The recalci
trants had meantime gathered their
friends , and showed up so strongly that
the olllcers did not \ymh to risk an ar
rest. It was impossible to tell to what
extent the rebellion had progressed , but
the Crows
it was fair to prcsuKw ) they all sympath
ized with the thieves. The matter
went to the Indian otllco agent to the
interior office ; the interior office wont to
the war olllco , aml'tboy both went to the
executive office. Then it traveled buck ,
the Heerotury ofwar told General
Sheridan something , and he told it to
General Terry , an/I / Qenerul Terry told
it to General Ruger , who told it to
liis post commundors' . At the sumo
time the bocrotury of the interior told it
to the commissioner of Indian utluirs ,
who told it to the ugont , und now the
secret is out , nnd the agent swears by
all that is holy that ho will urres.t the
seventeen Indians who stole horses if it
takes the whole United States army te

upon the Crow agency from all direc-

Nineteen companies of cavalry and I de
