A TEXAS INDIAN EPISODE.

An Indian Episode.
Written for The Bee. }
N THE fall of 1871 ,
with a party of
scouts from Fort
Griffin to Jacks-
bore , or more
Lp r o p o r 1 y Port
the writer was wit-
uess to ono of the
most attroclous masacres over perpe
trated by the Nomads of the plains.
The northwestern settlements of
Texas in 1871 wore in these days sub
ject to periodical raids by both the Com-
manchos and Kiowas , the fiercest of
what are known as the plains Indians ,
and many u tale of horror could bo told
by the settlers in that region of outrage
and murder committed by these savages.
Salt Crook in this instance very ap
propriately named is a small tributary
of the Brazes river , running in a
northerly direction about six miles
from old Fort Bolknnp , and about mid
way between Forts Griffin and Richard-
eon , und for some miles after leaving
this crook may bo soon rude headstones
recording the massacre of stage drivers ,
Bottlers and immigrants. Thu country
of tor leaving the crook is open , rolling
prairie land , the crests of the ridges
being about a mlle apart.
About noon of a bright day in the full
of 1871 , a government train consisting
of six wagons , six mule teams nnd ton
men was attacked by a marauding
party of Kiowas under the leadership of
Satantu , Satanic and nig Tree , and all
except three wore killed and horribly
mutilated. About half an hour pre
vious to the attack General Sherman
witti a small escort had passed the train
going to Fort Richardson and had
spoken with the wagon-mastor.
When the Indians wore first seen , the
vrncroninnstor promptly corralled his
train in two parallel lines the teams
facing inwards and barricaded the ex
tremities with sucks of corn taken from
the wagons nnd made preparations for a
stubborn defence. The Indians num-
Loring about ono hundred or moro
dashed down upon thorn , yelling and
shaking their blankets , in tbo hope of
stampeding the mules , and then com
menced circling the train getting closer
and closer every moment. Ono after
another of the gallant defenders of the
little fortress fell under the murderous ,
all round ilro of the savages. Seeing
nil hope gone three of the ton not yet
injured made a break for freedom and
succeeded in getting away , two of thorn ,
howeverreceived slight wounds , before
After securing the mules not killed
by their lire , thirty-three in number ,
ine Indians disappeared.
The writer with his party came upon
, he scene about an hour afterwards und
must forever remember it.
The wagonmaster , whoso thigh was
jroken by a ball was cauturod alive.
Ho was stripped , fastened by the loclc-
3hain to on of the wagons and a fire
built under him. When seen , ono side
was burnt to a cinder and the notion of
the flro had horribly contorted his body.
The six other teamsters wore likewise
stripped , nnd scalped , their throats
were cut and other nameless mutila
tions made , and It was with dlfllculty
that the writer removed an axe from the
skull of ono of the unfortunate mon.
Upon the news being brought to Fort
Richmond General Sherman immedi
ately ordered General Mackenzie in
pursuit with his regiment , the Fourth
cavalry , Tonkawa Indian scouts , nnd
two companies of his regiment from
Fort Griltln mot him at the scone of the
massacre and the trail was taken
up. General Sherman's instructions to
Mackenzie wore , "Follow that trail ,
and if. as I suspect , it loads across the
Red river into the Indian territory , and
you can locate the particular village ,
clean it out without regard to treaties. "
The trail was followed into the Indian
territory , but there lost , owing to the
heavy rains. General Mackenzie then
marched his command along the base
of the Wichita mountains to Fort Sill ,
where ho found General Sherman , who
had arrived there from Texas some
time previous. Shortly after General
Sherman's arrival , Satanta was hoard
to boast that ho was "now square with
the people of Texas , " and ho , Satanic
and Big Tree wore promptly arrested ,
and the captured mules found in their
village conclusively proving their guilt.
While General Sherman was question
ing these Indians on the porch of Gen
eral Grierson's quarters , a dramatic in
cident occurred which nearly cost the
general his life. Lone Wolf , the head
chief of the Kiowas , quietly slipped by
the guard , nnd taking three carbines
from under his blanket , passed them to
the three prisoners , nnd nt the sumo
time presented his own piece at the
head of the general. Before ho could
fire , however , ho was disarmed by the
guard ; but this was the second close
call the general had had from the same
band of Indians in the space of a few
A requisition bolng had from the
governor of Texas for Satanta , Satanic
and Big Tree , they were turned over to
General Mnckoiuio to bo brought to
Jackson for trial.
On leaving the fort some difficulty
was oxpiorouced by General Grleruon
in getting the Indians into the wagon
provided lor thorn. Sntanto nnd Big
Tree were to ride in ono , and Satank ,
the roost dangerous , in another. All
three were hundoulTed and shackled
und refused to got in , nnd finally hud
to bo thrown in by the rear guard.
On being placed in the wagon , old
Satanic turned to the Indians gathered
and said : "Toll my people that Satank
only wont half a mile on the road to
Texas. " McCord , sub-chief of the Ton
kawa bcout.s , understanding what ho
said , cautioned Lieutenant Thurston ,
the olllcor in command of the rear
guard , and ho placed a corporal and a
private in the wagon with him. The
corporal sat immediately behind him
ana the private faced him.
What followed Is an instance of In
dian ! stoicism I believed unparalleled.
In some way Big Tree had secured a
knife , and Just prior to being placed in
the wagon ho and Satank embraced ,
and in the operation the icnlfo changed
hands. Satank , after making the
above mentioned remark , commenced
hU death spng , and under the cover ot
his blanket , endeavored to remove his
handcuffs. Finding his hands too
large , ho with His knife stripped the
Hesh and little finger from his left
tinnd , still chanting his death song.
Suddenly he whirled around und stubbed
the corporal in the thigh ; the corporal
tumbled out of the roar end of the
wagon and the astonished private
tumbled out of the front end. Seizing
the corporal's Spencer carbine , asevon-
shooter , the desperate savage sprung
the lever to throw in a cartridge , but
as there was ono already in the cham
ber of the piece , this rendered the , gun
useless , and while ho was working at
the lover ho was shot to death by the
There was another casualty however
Lieutenant Thurbton , commanding
the rour guard , seeing the affair while
Satank was working with the gun , rode
up behind him and within u pace or two
of him fired with his revolver , missing
him , but hitting In the head the team
ster , who fell under his mule ; ho was
not seriously hurt , however.
On reaching Jacksboro , Sutanta and
Big Tree were tried and sentenced to
bo hanged. The sentence was , how
ever , commuted by Governor Davis of
Texas to Imprisonment for life.
After serving for some time the sen
tence was remitted nnd they were re
leased ; but the old habit was too strong
for them ; they wont again on the war
pathworo rearrostcd and sent to Hunts-
vlllo penitentiary. Big Tree is still
there ; but Satanta , tiring of restraint
some years ago , throw himself from the
topmost tier of cells to the Hags below
and was killed. A suicide is regarded
as debarring a red man from the happy
hunting grounds , Sutanta must have
boon desperate indeed.
In pei-son Satanic was as vicious a
looking specimen of humanity us could
bo conceived. Ferocity was stamped
all over him. Low , receding forehead ,
grizzled hair and wrinkled face , with
eyes that gleamed with fierce hatred.
He was oven conceded by his own tribe
of which ho was at ono time chief , to
bo a bad man.
Satanta was a very largo and powerful
man , the war chief and most noted orator
tor of the tribe. His gift of speech was
wonderful , and it is said that when ho
was to speak the Choyenncs , Arapahoes
and other tribes would flock to hear
him.Big Tree , the youngest of the trio ,
was physically us fine a specimen of In
dian manhood as the writer has ever
soon. Six foot tall , beautifully proportioned
tioned and with a handsome face , ho
carried within him the heart of a devil.
Entwined in his scalp lock ho carried
the golden hair of some poor little
white girl whom ho boasted that ho had
outraged and murdered.
Such is n brief history of a massacre
that created an intense excitement
through western Texas , and made many
settlers agree with General Shoridun
when ho remarked that if ho had to
llvo in hell or Texas he would sell
Texas and llvo in the other place.

The whistles are blowing and the
bolls are striking their evening chimes ,
sweet melody to thousands of weary
souls. It is G o'clock , and the day's
work is practically over. The low-
dropped sun is already slanting bars of
shimmering gold athwart the tall
spires , and the electric lights along the
streets have begun to stand out in their
incandescent brightness , as the shadows
of eventide hover and thicken over the
city. Many of the stores and nearly
all the shops and otllcos have closed
down , and in one steady stream the
crowds of humanity who have boon
kept busy the live long day , within
these grusomo walls , come pouring
forth out upon the street and homeward
bound. Their hearts arc light and
footsteps bouyant over the thought
that one more day's work is done. That
seems to bo the one idea occupying the
mind and soul of these swarm
ing thousands as they hurry on
and on forever ; and never comes
the rcaltiy to them that , with the fleet
ing day. another mile-post has boon
passed on the way to the grave. But
thus it over has been
"And forever nnd forever ,
As long as the river flows ,
As long as the hcaat has passions ,
As long as Ufa has woes "
thus , it over will bo.
As the evening wears on and the
shadows fill up the cracks and crannies
and angles of the streets , the lamps are
all abla/o and the electric light vies
with old Sol in lighting up the way ,
another class takes the place of that
gone ho'mo with laugh and song nnd
jest. Another class is moving in the
streets nnd about the public places , and
the life of day takes form at night ,
though in a less olastio , moro somber
way. The toilers of the dark hours
have crept forth for their turn at the
wheel that keeps up the rumble of com
merce and trade , and keeps the world
moving on. There are thousands and
thousands of those , too , but , of course ,
comparatively few with the multitude
that slumbers after the toll of day
thousands who work away just as
busily and just as merrily from
the setting until the rising of
the sun. What a panorama , what
thrilling scenes are bolng presented
about you during the silent watches of
the night ! But everybody cannot see
them It takes eyes , a heart and soul ,
to see the life of a night. And how few
of the poor creatures possess those at-
trihutesl Look at that labyrinth of
rod-hot wires flashing their messages of
news and business ( of pleasure and sorrow
row and death , to all quarters of the
world. It takes wakeful , watchful eyes ,
sturdy hearts , active brains and busy
hands to run this component part of thu
great night machinery. At the West
ern Union and Pacific telegraph oulcca ,
at the railroads , hotels and numerous
other points , a large force la ° k pt on-
gaged at night. Owing to the half-rate
granted after 6 o'clock , a great volume
of business isthon done , and in addition
to this the inconceivably largo amount
of news published by the morning news
papers goes over these wires from city
to city until late in the morning.
All this enormous lot of work re
quires many skillful hands to oxo-
cut it ; in fact , some of the
trustiest , the most dextrous of the craft
have night sits. There nro fifty night
operators in Omaha , and among them
arc some very skillful men at the keys.
As a general thing , young men illl
these positions , but many a gray head
is to bo seen bending over the board , as
ho maintains the monotonous feong
click click-click click click-click-
click-click , throughout the long dreary
hours of the night. The hours of
the night-tolegrnpher , however , are
short , as they should be. Seven and a
half hours is ills allotted time , and for
all work performed over that time ho
receives extra compensation.
Several years ago the Western Union
brought on a disastrous strike by lop
ping off this extra recompense , and lor
a time the company was run entirely by
"plugs" and "sticks , " but it-eventually
restored the extra. Telegraphers as a
general thing , nro bright and intelli
gent mon , fine penmen , and good
readers , yet occasionally a "ham" creeps
within their ranks , as ho docs in those
of all trades and professions.
The newspapers furnish an army of
night toilers editors , reporters , print
ers , pressmen , messengers , mailing
clerks , proof-readers , stereotypors , jan
itors , and so on. The three morning
newspapers in Omaha furnish employ
ment for probably 200 mon and boys , a
little world within themselves , of
which , of course , Tun BKK supplies the
greatest number. The majority of
these are the printers. As a rule the
"print" is a pretty bright follow , up
and up on politics , sports and current
matters. Ho can converse intelligently
and readily. The "case" " is a curricu
lum that would shame that of many a
college. The halcyon days of the tramp
typo are gene apparently forever in
most the big cities , nnd decency and
sobriety arc the essential qualities to
the bccuromont and holding of a""sit"
The barkeeper nnd the gambler , too ,
must bo rated among the tellers of the
night , "but not now so much as they
used to bo , " as ono of the
former observed to mo last evening.
The midnight closing law , which is a
good ono , has cut down the numbers of
the former a thousand-fold , so much so ,
in fact , that they cannot bo classified
with the masses of all-night workers.
Their labors cuaso at 12 o'clock , that is.
active work over the bar , and , uftor a
hasty "reading up" of the bottles and
glasses that have been in constant use
all through the evening , they doff the
white apron and vest , take a night-cap ,
and go homo like any other ordinary
citizen. Yet there are all-night houses
yet , right hero in Omaha , quite a num
ber of thorn , who , in spite of police sur
veillance , run and ply their unlawful
trnmo. Several of those shops have a
pull with the roundsmen , who know the
way by the back door , nnd who utilise
their knowledge by frequent trips that
way. Whibky , to a policeman in those
places is always free. Ho drops
in , snoakingly , of course , nomi
nates Jiis liquor like a man intend
ing to pay for it , hoists it , smnoks his
lips , and with a null at his glove , re
marks "kind o sharp out tor night"
and walks out.
No more either is the gambler an all
nighter. Like Othello , his occupation
is gene except on the quiet. The faces
pf the "high rollers" and the "skins"
and the "pikers" and. "sure-thing men"
wore erstwhile as familiar as that ol
the copper or the wienor-wurst man on
the night round , but they , too , owing
to reformatory laws have found thelfl
vocation gone * The smiling features ol
the nll-night sport have faded away Ilka
a dream within the last two years , and
so I strike him from my list of dark-
hour toilers. To bo sure there are
many private and secret games yet ,
both at faro and poker , but there is not
that battalion of hangers on , that waa
to bo scon in the days when everything
was "wide open , " when it was no moro of
a crime to gamble than it is now to play
a friendly game of billiards or take a
drink. Now , all games are conducted
with the utmost Becrooy , and instead of
being an outdoor all-nighter , the sport
is under lock and key , at work with tha
pasteboards or at the box , like a man
cracking a safe. Ho fears the cop , and
the less seen of him upon the street at
night , the loss the official suspicion.
The bakers are a profession that fur *
nish a numerous army of toilers of the
night , and in Omaha there must bo
several hundred of them kept con
stantly nt work. At Garneau's cracker
factora there is a largo forcoand whlto-

a trundle bed , instead of being com
pelled to carry them hero and there , nt
all hours , fair weather or foul. The
wiener-wurst man is an owl , and the
hackmcn are a numerous class who
bwoll the active world of night. The
robtuurunts and chop houses of the
cheaper grades , are also open all
through the dark hours ; then there is
the police force nnd the detectives , the
street sweepers , the boggors , bkylurkers
and scores of others , both legitimate
and illegitimate , who contribute to the
low hum-drum of the life of the city at
night. SANDY G. V. GKIBWOLD.
