WASIIIXOTO.V , Mnrcli fi , " The president IIM
transmitted to congress the icmulnlng docu
ments and protocols relating to the fisheries
treaty , together with u letter from Secretary
Buy urJ , In his letter Secretary ll.iyiinl
Bays : "Ati lnsXKtlon | ! of this documentary
history will servo to demonstrate the prud-
tlcal nnd important results accomplished by
tlio treaty now pending before the senate by
which the question of the Interpretation nnd
administration of the treaty of 1818 between
the United States and Great Urltnln Is trans.-
fcrrcd and elevated from the obscurity Into
which It has BUfTored to lapse since the date
of that convention , and Its restoration from
the prnctleal control of thn minor ofllclals of
Canadian maritime provinces. Until the
treaty now pending was concluded no avail
able remedy seems to have been supplied for
the Inconsistencies , Incongruities ana unjust-
iflablo construction of the treaty of 181H , to
which our fishermen for year after year have
been subjected , and which by the progress of
gradual encroachments of Canadian legisla
tion aud local | > ort regulations , had almost
converted their privilege , expressly reserved
by the treaty , Into sources of Inconvenience
und expense. 1'retoxts or oauscs alleged for
arrests , iinoa , detentions and other embar
rassments to American fishing vessels during
the years 1WO and 1SS7 , wore based ujmn
alleged infractions of the treaty of 1818 , or of
Canadian lawn passed in professed execution
of that treaty. All such vexatious action ns
is recorded in the list of seizures , etc. , is met
nnd rendered impossible of occurrence in the
future by the provisions of the treaty now
before the senate , nnd the amplest enjoyment
by United States flshormon of treaty rights
nnd customary hospitality duo un
der International law und comity is
Hccurcd in the ports and harbors of eastern
Canada and Newfoundland. The corres
pondence will serve also to establish the fact
that prior to the treaty of reciprocity of 18"il ,
aud subsequent to KB abrogation , and in the
years of 1870 and 1871. vexatious and hur-
rasslng administration by Canadian authori
ties was practiced and unchecked. As
neither the treaty of IBM nor that of 1871
contained any allusion to thu wrongs thus
indicted upon United States fishermen , nnd
us neither convention contrived any remedy
for provision against their renewal and repe
tition , U iM-'oiimo necessary u remedy should
ho longer bo unprovided. It h believed such
n remedy U practically nnd fully supplied by
the treaty now pending , and that by Us terms
now and for the ( list time since 1818 , a Just
and Joint interpretation is agreed to by both
governments and placed upon the treaty of
ISIS , which will secure Just und hospitable
treatment to the United States
fishermen , and secure to them unmo
lested the full measure of their rights
and that under the proposed arrangement
every American iishormun pushing his voca
tion in the witters adjacent to British North
America , run acquire n clear understanding
of his rights and duties whilst within the
Jurisdiction of all waters of Canada , or to
such i > ortH and Harbors ns casualty , neces
sity or convenience may suggest , without of encountering such harsh nnd un
friendly treatment as ho was ticretofoi e sub
jected to , under uncertain , unwarranted and
variant interpretation of his treaty rights. "
The accompanying papers nro made up of
extracts from the diplomatic correspondency
jjf 187 , Sceiotnry Uayard's letter to Minister
TPUolps of July 12.18S7 , and proposals of con
ferences of negotiations. There is also the
text of n 16tter from Secretary Bayard to Sir
Charles Tapper , ulider date of May 111 , 18-87 ,
in which IJuyurd briefly reviews the polntb
at issue , deprecates the clrcumlocu-
. tlon necessary ladoaling with Canada through
Great Britain , and proposes that a Joint
commission which is to bo arranged for
Canada's colonies ns represented. He speaks
atlcngtu'of the Interest involved , and of the
necessity for prompt action to avoid dlsa-
' grcoable friction between the two countries
reply thanks Secretary llayura for the sug
gestion made , aud nays they have been ro-
" fcrrcd to the proper authority , and coincides
i completely with the views of Mr. Bayard in
the earnest hope for an cnrly settlement of u
vexed question. A letter from Uuyard to
Minister 1'helps refers to a telegram from
Lord Salisbury , regarding the appointment
of a commission. In this Mr. Bayard pro
pose * a convention similar in some respects
to the new treaty , but which was not accept
able in other points to the British govern
ment. The remaining correspondence brings
the subject to an agreement for convention.

commissioners at Crcston , In regard to the
competency of the now engineers being em
ployed on the Chicago , Burlington & Qulncy ,

The Situation at Kannnn City.
KANSAS Citr , Mo. , March 5. [ Special Tel-
gram to the BEE. ] The first qrdt'r'for men
ot employed by the Burlington to stop Work
hat hat been given by tbo brotherhood since
ho strike commenced wns Issued In Kansas
Jlty this morning , The 'engineers nnd fire
men in charge of the Hock Island switch en
gines and the Chicago , Kansas & "Northwest-
rn Cnglno nt work in the yards hero were
irdorcd to leave their cnbs. The reason for
ho brotherhood's telegram
action Is the following
gram posted by the Burlington this morning :
BnuoKriRU ) , 'March 4. Conductors : As
vu aru now going to onm | upjbuslness and
vlll discontinue running pilots , will > expect
ourselves , or Ono of .your.brukcmcn , to show
tow engineers the road .when necessary.
The Burlington la under contract with the
lock Island nnd Chicago , Kansas St No-
iruskn to do their switching , at this jwlnt ,
tut when the strike coiumonc d Und the
hirlington stopped receiving freight , the
lock Island nnd Chicago , Kansas & Ne-
irosko , with the consent of the strikers , put
heir own engines ou the yards to handln
heir business. Now that tha Burlington
uis announced that it has opened up , for
mstuoss the strikers insist that It shall do all
t business , and therefore. ) ordered Uio men
> n tlio switch engine not to bundle any moro
curs In the Hannibal yards. The men re
ceived the orders after they had taken their
engines. The engineers nt once reported to
Mr. S. M. Stevens who has charge of the
strike , for instructions. Ho road them the
orders of Hoululmn , and instructed them note
o handle any moro freight in the .yards , but
o remain with their engines and obey orders
concerning any other work. The
engineers at first did not understand
why they had boon ordered to
stop work , but as they rend tbo notice that
the Burlington wus to open up business , they
at once expressed themselves satisfied with
the action of the committee. It is not prob-
iblo that either of these roads will bo nl-
owed to run switch engines at this point
vguln us long ns the Btnlte , continues. As-
iistunt General Manager Fish , of the Bur-
ington , said that ho did not know what the
road would do with tha business of other
roads. Tha Burlington has ono switch en
gine ot work in the yards to-day.
One freight train loft over the Hnnnibal
and ono over the Kansas City & St. Joe this
norning. Passenger trains are leavlngabout
ou tlnie. The Kansas City and St. Louis ox-
iress No. 4 was twenty minutes late. No. 6
on the Kansas City & St. .Too was abandoned
nt St. Joe , as was also freight
train No. 70. The Kansas City express ,
luo at 10:50 : , was about thirty minutes lato.
No freight train arrived this morning. There
s very little change in the movement of
.ruins from lust week. Mr. A. M. Stevens
stated this morning that no word hod been
received from Chicago In regard to any
change In the management of the strike.
"Tho brotherhood , as has been stated , does
not wish to interfere With any other road , "
said ho. "The order for tbo engine men to
stop liandling freight hero , which I gave this
morning , was only done to force the Burling
ton to fulfill Its contract. " The members of
the local committee report that the men are
feeling very contented all over the system ,
and that not H man who went out has yet re
turned to work.
Some of the striker * , both hero and nt
Brooklloldwhile , excited about the shooting
of Watt ot DrooklUHd Saturday , made
threats of lynching. The brotherhood , fear
ing that these utterances might bo mistaken
for threats of violence by the brotherhood ,
bus issued the following communication in
the form of a hand bill , signed by the local
committee nt Brookflcld :
To tlio Public The unfortunate shooting
of Engineer George Wntt need not give the
public any uneasiness na tar us the cnglna-
men are concerned. Vigilance , not violence.
Is our watchword. C. H. SAI.MOX ,

The following H the account of the shoot
ing sent by the local committee of Brookflcld
to the local committee herd :
"BilooKFiEU ) , March 5.J. . T. Murray ,
Chairman Committee , Kansas City : Dear
Sir Everything wns working nil right here
until Saturday morning. Poor KoxWntt is
dead. Ho had bought a ticket to St. Joe to
visit his mother , and while waiting for the
train bo waikcd up to the west end of the
depot nnd thcro got off the platform , whore
one of the men the company had hlrod to
guard the property came up to him nnd told
him to throw ujihU hands und nt the same
tlmo shot and killed him before ho had time
to throw up his hundt. You know what nn
inoffensive fellow Wntt wns. Ho never
harmed any ono. The man who shot him is
n bridge carpenter by the name of James A.
Bostwiek. It wns a cold-blooded murder.
The coroner's Jury It in session , but wo don't
know wlmt the venlict will be. If Justice i
done we think they will hold him for murder
In thu first degree. They took him to Lliir
nous before the boys know of it early Saturday -
day morning. C. H. SIMION ,
J. H. SxoDor.
Mr. C. J. Hinge , who , together with Mr.
Stevens , was seut hero to old the local com
mittee In the arrangement of the strike , has
been recalled. Ho wus a Hock Island man
and was selected as a member by the railway
company , the understanding being that ho
should puv particular attention to the I took
Island yard business hero. The Hock Inland
will continue to receive freight and unless
some agreement can bo made by the strikers
to allow it to rcsuino the operation of its
switch engine , it will look to tha Burlington
to do the work under its contract.
New York Engineer * Talk.
NKW YOBK , March 5. At the state meet
ing of tha Brotherhood of Locomotive Engi
neers , u long statement was 4 issued' tlio
public in relation to the condition of the
organization and the Burlington strike.
After referring to the financial resources
winch uro ample , the statement &ays"We ;
wish to say to the public that the brother
hood has not udanaoncd its conservative
tdcns , while they will avail in
obtaining Justice. But in .our present
issue wo are prepared to go at far as neces
sary to obtain our Just and. acknowledged
rights. The statement thai the youngur and
tuoro pugnacious element of the brotherhood
has gained control of our destinies , is.unwar-
ranted and misleading. Qii the contrary it
is the universal custom for veterans to do the
talking in compliance with * the. habits of dis
cipline engendered by our profession.In
conclusion wo desire to asU tUoso who. maybe
bo inclined to doubt tlio wisdom
of our present action the follow
ing question : Is it less unreasonable
or fair for the engineers and firemen to make
common Cauno oguinit i * stubborn corporation -
tion , than for the managers of railways of
the country to moke common causa against
us Iu this particular cose , by secretly supplying - *
plying the Chicago. Burlington & Quiiu-y
managers with men in their time of need and
thus conspiring for our defeat i Thanks are
extended generally to tlio newspaper prcsn ,
with ono or two exceptions , for thn 'courtcsj
and fairness with which they have treated
the engineer's side of thecuce. Alt we ask
w fair play aad no favor.

J > uiLADELrniA , March 5. The report o (
Edward Kent , chairman of the executive
board of the Brotherhood of Locomotive En
gineers , who baa been In this city investigat
ing the charges that brotherhood meu hat
taken the places of striking Knight * of LaoOr
on the Reading railroad , shows they were
groMly exaggerated. The majority of the
men who- had manned the engines at the
commencement of the strllro were men who
had lout their places in the brotherhood in
the strike on the Heading system in 1877
nnd had since been unable to obtain work 01
locomotives , Many of them had then , hi
told , belonged to the brotherhood , but hai
inco withdrawn or been expelled. .

Stand by Their Brothers.

leld to-ulght. The approval and endorse
ment of the strike In the west was enthusi

ivarmly championing the cause of the strlk-
ng brothers , and pledging support. The
question of ordering all members of the
jrothcrhood now in the sorvioo of the Head *

discussed , but no official uctlon Was taken.
A. Scheme to Effect the Hclensc of
I'rellcr'M Murderer.
In conversation with a Philadelphia
News representative a prominent attor
ney of St. Louis gave the following bit
of goBslp in commotion with Hiifjh M.
Brooks ill i as Maxwell the murderer of
"Maxwell , like many other interest
ing murderers , was the recipient of nu
merous feminine attentions during his
trial. Although , HO far an known , ho
had scarcely moro than half a do/en ac
quaintances in St.1'- Louis , ho was con-
Htwitly in receipt of handsome bouquets
and ho rarely appeared in the court
room without a boutonnicre. Many of
the iloral gifts were vthc fragrant hear
ers of perfumed bilhjtdoux , while dainty
boxes , with dnintiotf.pTcsonts of linen
and high-priced hota gave a practical
air to the admiratiqh of his unknown
friends. '
"Among the regular attendants dur
ing the trial was a i slender , fnir-haired
5foung woman of twenty- five or less. She
wore n shabby suit of'blnck , made in a
style ubboluto for halt n decade , nnd her
face wus always partyally veiled. She
never missed a day , hi the curly days of
the trial , but attended with clock-like
regularity. She t'arcly watched the
witnesses or the court. She scorned to
hayo no thought except for Maxwell. '
She came cuvjy and fcccurod a front scut ,
and from the Unto the prisoner was
brought into the court room until lie
wns taken away her eyes rarely loft his
face. lie nat sidownys to her and I
think the observation of the unknown
woman at first escaped him. The1 veil
wus over her eyes , but the bright orbs
shone through thogau/.c with a Htrangc.
unnatural light , aud the reporters and
court room otliciala came to look upon
her as a crank.
"But ono day , just before the close of
the trial , the veiled woman , with the
bright eyes , failed to appear. So it was
the next day and the next , and after a
little brief speculation she was forgot
ten , nt least by the major part of those
interested in the trial. But there \vn i
a story bnclc of it. The mysterious
woman hud not Bat through the weary
hours of the trinl lotnothing. . She hnd
become infatuated with the prisoner ,
and her mind waa busy weaving some
plan by which she could effect his
escape. That plan was finally formu
lated , nnd she resolved to
communicate with Maxwell. She
did so , nnd the letter is a curiosity of
cunning shrewdness , intelligently ox- .
preyed. Shu said she had been nn
amateur actress and hod played male
characters. She had studied the art of
'make-up , ' and was satisfied she could
so disguise herself as to mnko the
guards believe faho' was Maxwell. Her
plan was to. visit Maxwell disguised us a
roan , and dressed as near like him as
possible. Glve five moments freedom
from observation by the guards she
could , she said , by a clover mako-up , dis
guise both of them so that each would
look' llko the other. Then Maxwell
could leave the jail , and she would re
main aud take the consequences.
"It was a strange proiwsal , nnd ono
hardly to conceived outside of a
woman'sbrain. And Maxwell ? Ho read
the letter , smiled contemptuously , nnd
handed it over to the district attorney.
Not that he was. too honorable to attempt -
tempt to escape through a woman's aid.
No ono who know Maxwell's contempti
ble spirit would believe that. He
simply haw too many difficulties in the
way of its accomplishment , nnd sought
to curry favor with the state by reveal
ing the one-sided , plot. Perhaps ho
thought , too , that thfl schema was too
visionary. It certainly would have re
quired courage , whlto * there was danger
that the fair liberator might bo searched
and her curefully-jiVtopared 'make-up'
confiscated. , ' , , ' , '
"The apparent ( fusibility of the
thing , however , surprised the state's
attorneys. They were moro surprised
when the 'veiled woman' waa 'shad
owed' by a detective ? iCnd the discovery
made that she bolonj 'Jd to one of the
beat connected families of St. Louis.
Her father waa an ex-fcnalvo merchant ;
her mother belonged , to the best blue-
blooded stock of Flocispant , the French
settlement near SttiLouis , while thfl
young lady herself Irnd been educated in
a convent , nnd was alike distinguished
for her wit , intelligence , and attractive
"What there was in Maxwell to fasci
nate her waa a mystery. Ho waa , even
with hla viclou * physigmy cov
ered , anything but handsome. But
she was taken with , the man , and in
order to escape attention dressed shab
bily and visited the court room veiled.
"Tho atory waa kept quiet. The un
fortunate girl was too well' connected to
.admit of publicity being given to her
attachment. Even' the 'wrong she was
about to- commit woe . condoned.- The

AMSTKiumi , Starch G. [ Now York Herald
Cable Special to the llKE.l On arriving
hero this morning to ascertain what financial
pcoplo tthltikj fyf the decision of the
New .York grand Jury and thu little wizard ,
I found the unlive * nil excited over the elec
tions which take place to-morrow under the
now suffrage bill , I first Interviewed M.
Amstol 'Straat , a pleasant , smiling , gray-
headed banker , and M. Vi'orthclm , of
Worthclm & Gompcttz , who is largely
connected with American shares , bonds
aud loans , of which ho has Issued many. Mr ,
Wcrthomisnld : " "The result of the affair
was ox | > cuUd. The little wizard is far too
clover nnd will doubtless try to ovndo pun
ishment through legal loop holes. Never
theless our coulldcuce In American Justice Is
uulmpQaclrod. I have made many dealings
with It , especially with the supreme court
nnd always found It honest and fair-dealing.
The grand Jury judged merely
on technical ground. I firmly
bollevo that , though the result will
not generally moke Dutch bondholders de
spair of American railway credit , It will
damage speculation iu all the little wizard's '
concerns. "
I afterwards s w Mr. A. L. Wurfbaln ,
president of tlio Soclotc Itlmers , well-known
on the Amsterdam stock exchange commit
tee. Mr. Wurfbnln believes If the grand
Jury's ' llndlng U not reversed It will Injure all
American bonds besides the little wizard's ,
although there is not any excitement yet.
Many financiers interviewed declined to
say anything for publication , as the
case was too technical , but frcoly
expressed their disgust und indignation In
private. Kvcn the most reticent have a con
temptuous smile on their lips ns soon ns the
llttlo wizard's name Is mentioned. One
said : "WJion I hoar that iiarno I uncon
sciously put my hand on my pocket to protect
my purso. "
Mr. Van Mlerop , manager of the Amster-
dainsch bank , connected with the Bolsscvaon
aud president of the committee recently
formed to protect the interests of the Im
mensely numerous duly holders of 5 and 0 pol
ecat Missouri , Kansas & Texas , declares that
confidence in all tlio little wizard's concerns
will be finally shaken here.
H. Oycus , nn important banker believes
tlio Dutch will try composition or endeavor
to oust the little wizard from the control of
of the Missouri. Kansas & Texas. It in im
possible to get at the names of the Dutch
committee which Instituted the prosecution
In the first Instance. Messrs. Stoop & Kens ,
Dordrech bankers , headed the committee
but they have siuco , for obscure reasons ,
backed out. I nm starting for Dordrecht to
see them. Amsterdam opinion emphatically
pronounces the lltilc wizard a fraud.
At Dordrecht.

A Very Dnll Scuslon In the House of
litf JttmtJi anrdoli ftennttt.l'
LOXJWN , March 5. [ New York Herald
Cable Special to the Bun.l The house
of lords seldom offers Attractions to n
stranger or oven to its own members. The
real work of the country ii done in the much
plainer chamber of one side of the building.
The great dcslro of every peer who has
brains , IB to bo set free and get u scat In the
house of commons. A scheme to effect this
change is shortly to bo produced
by Lord Dunraven. A little Incident
this evening will perhaps open his eyes to the
aifllculty. Lord Strathedcn-Campboll , son
of the celebrated lord chancellor , brought
forward u modest proposal to enable the lord
chancellor to designate the speaker when
two or threa members rise at the same timo.
At present the noble lords do as they like-
If half a dozen get up no one has authority to
single out ono Of ( their number nnd they
may all remain standing until they have tired
out or the house calls by nnmo for a partic
ular person. The lord chancellor sits down
In solemn state with mace before him , but lie
has no right to interfere in any way. f f wo
hud such a custom in the commons there
would bo a free Jlght every night and the best
bruiser would hold the floor. There was a
fair audience to chocr Lord Campbell tins
evuulng. The priina minister sat us usual with
his head leaning on the back of his seat , gaz
ing up fixedly at one of the stalnod glass win
dows. Ho never sdems conscious that anyone
ono l.s In the cbatnbor but himself. Ho was
oblivious of poor Lord Campbell , who Is ut
the best one of the dullest nnd prosiest mem
in England and , who never speaks for
ten minutes without sending most of
the people to nsleop. Ho ought to bo
let out on lilro to persons suffering
from Insomnia. Ho hold forth for some tltno
hi bis. dreary fashion , his follow peers slum
bering peacefully , , except Lord Uoseberry ,
who has a plan ot his own for reforming the
house of lords , and who who was porhaiw
curious to see 'Lord. ' Campbell make
a raos ' * vqf n small branch of the sub-
J ct. On the benches sue rod to the bishops
was the primate of all England alone in hlH
glory. His Grate Of Canterbury Is. . very reg
ular in his attendance , pending the time
when Duriraycn or Jlosoberry will abolish
him aud bo the entire episcopal body. Tlio
lord chancellor , on too woolsack , tried to
make a show'of listening to Campbell's bag-
pi po llko a drone , but It was ovldontly hard
work. At last It ended and the goVernment -
ornmont , coute'd _ the revolutionary pro
posal. Lord Kimberly , on the part of the
opposition w s equally * firm in rejecting It.
Rostibcrry cynically looked on at the dinner
hour , the firebrand Campbell withdrew his
resolution , Lork Salisbury censed studying :
the window , the lord chancellor leisurely rose
and walked off , and the other noble lords
sauntered slowly out , for the fatigues of the
high' and mighty branch of the legislature
were over and tlio constitution was saved.
In the commons the military men had a
grand Held ; night , ' oho after another , proving
that England is u'ndofea ( d and that nothing
can save nor but more .men1 and above ll
more mono v. Tile house was loft entirely to
tnem , scarcely any Gladstonians being prcs-
out. Tholr , venerable chief Iox > ke4 la ; for. a
few minute * ' but sooagot .horribly iboMxl
and jBdlclou&ly went . . . hone. Net '
dozen ParaolUtoa' were , to . t icon
but among them was the gculal Joseph 'Cox
frcsli from the Irish prison , , cheery' nna
bcarty as over. Halfpur scarcely coiulo *
ncondcd to nppenr. flosenen was busy over
his budget Uio chief feature of which Is to bo
the cdnverAlon of n per cent consols' Into 2t ,
l > cr.cents. This reduction of Itjtorest.wlH bo
n heavy blow to pcoplo with lltnhfd Incomes
nnd I anticipate u great oiltcry and perhaps
Htubuorn resistance. '
Whlla the treasury bench wan doting Lord
Charles Bercsford ros.o and delivered n rat
tling speech denouncing the present system
ixt the war ofllco and admiralty nnd paurlng
lit , n rattling flro of shot and shell at the Inml
lubbers who bungle our affairs. Ho struck
out right and left and sot everybody
laughing except the ministers and declared
the public wore kept In Ignorance nud n sea
of blue dust , In which laiilcntnblo state ho
loft them. No cruiser In a sort of fancied
security over raised greater consternation ,
Charley dashed on under full head of steam
nnd capslied half the government craft
around him , but nil of a sudden ho pulled tip
short and W. II. Smith announced thu gov
ernment could not consent to the royal com
mission , which was demanded.
Then rose Lord Kandolph and further dis
concerted Uio ministers by moving the ad
journment of the debate until Thursday.
That means moro mischief , for the ministry
must either offend many of Its followers by
finally refusing the commission or yield nnd
acknowledge Itself wrong. Lord Randolph
will resume the dcbato and somebody or
other is pretty sure to get a roast
ing. The government is in a fix
nnd unless the naval nnd military
men back down the government must cat a
dlih of humble pie to which Charley Bercs
ford has Imparted a line llavor of the sen.
The requisite cayenne pepper will bo liberally
sprinkled over it by Lord Kandolph. Horu ,
then , Is a now turn of affairs which will keep
everybody agog till Thursday.
Dunk HI air's Indian Wife.
Denver Correspondence Chicago
News : Dunk Blair , a big Scotchman ,
who , with hiHhquuw und half-breed ttons ,
lives midway between Meeker aud the
Utah line , on the White river , at a
point where it presents its most sinuous
topography , ia noted all over the White
river country us a man word is an
good as his bond. Ho has been in the
heurt of the Kockics for thirty years ,
and , having a squaw wife , who is u cou
sin of Chcpta , the widow of old Ouray ,
in hand nnd glovu with the Indiana , par
ticularly Colorow's outfit of renegade
Utes. During the disturbance Inst year
ho wus held under arrest , nnd was used
as a decoy to entrap the Indians. Tlio
correspondent vltutod Dunk at his ranch ,
at the base of a big mesa , and , although
he rejected my proposition to load mo to
Colorow for newspaper purposes , ho told
mo , when I had opened my satnplo case ,
what I have stamped the chef d'oouvro
of western fairy stories. "Sco that
big black hog-bock that runs to the
mesa , " ho said , in developing his ro
mance. "Well , from here it looks ns If
there was not a break in it. But there
Is , and n hip ono , nt least a hip nroya ,
probably twenty feet deep. Them's
where I tfot my wife or squaw in the
winter of 1809. Lot's BOO , that's nearly
twenty years ago. Johnny , that's my
bon , he's eighteen now. I was hunting
up on the range with my brother , who
runs a store at Rock Crook , Wyo.Vo
started out from my place clown the
river a few miles to hunt elk and bear.
One day a big term comes up and we
discover tracks of Indians. They wore
not friendly then , and you bet wo kept
out of their way. Night was coming on
and wo had struck that hog-back with
out starting any deer , and were about
to come down to low ground for the
night , when I saw a dozen oik eating
the sago bush a hundred or two yards
away nnd sinrtcd after them. I struck
the uroyn , which wn = < between mo and
the deer , nnd was about going to the
place , whore it was not very deep , when
I saw just before , mo , in the bottom , a
horse , lying on the prostrate
bodv of a squaw. Springing to the bottom
of tlio hole , I walked up to her , with my
gun ready for use , to see wlmt was the
matter. I goes up to hoi' , and pulling
round my can , souses her with water.
She catno round all right , and I found
she had been badly hurt by her horse
falling on hor. Slio told me , in Span
ish , that her horse had gone of thoaroyo
and fallen on her. Ilor pcoplo , with
whom fcho was traveling , believed that
she was deadund lofb her there. Well ,
the squaw was young and good-looking1 ,
and I took her with me. She's making
the oofleo for you now , and though her
skill's not while , and she's wearing out ,
I'll stick to her OH.loug ut I llvo. She's
bcou worth moro to mo than most wives
nro to their husband * . "
The point that Dunk describes is ono
of the most desolate in the Hooky moun
tains , and in 1800 the nearest settlement
was Denver , over four hundred miles
away. Blair , Bill Baker und a few of
the pioneers wore the only white men
in the mountains for hundreds of miles.
Blair is now n rich man , or , at least ,
has a good rmich.und thousand of head
of cattle. His nearest neighbors are at
Raugoloy , six mflqs from which the en
gagement between the Colorado state
troops and Utes occurred last summer.
