ALONE, HE DEFENDED ISLAND
Slagle-llaadeil aad Kept
John Trsvers, a man who many years
ago defended the American flag against a
horde of Indians on a lonely little island
off Alnska. died at Mt. Hop. Re'rent, ln
Baltimore, where he had been about twenty
years. He was 70 years old. The causa
of his death was congestion of the lungs.
Travers had a meteorie reputation, for It
seems that no longer had he been brought
to the asylum hound In chains, than he
was forgotten, and no one ever thought
to recall his deda or patriotism.
It la probable that the only person whs
remembered him all those years at tho
asylum was Dr. Charles 1. Hill, who has
been physician and mirgeon-ln-ohlef at thsj
Institution during the entire period.
Born In Massachusetts, Travers at an
early age enlisted In the navy and fought
on one of the federal vessels during tho
civil war. It seems he found marine life
distasteful, for on the expiration of Ms
enlistment he Joined the army and was
sent to the far west. Eventually he was
stationed at Seattle, Wash., which waa
then little more than a trading post, where
the Indians of the north and the roughen
element of the south came In communica
tion, the one to dispose of their fuiit and
the others to give ln return whisky and
This kind of life, tt seems, appealed t
Travers, and Instead of re-enlistlng ho
espoused the cause of Pluto Instead of that
of Mars, and soon he was nip and tuck
with the Indians of Canada and Alaska,
driving bargains for skins. There was
profit In tho business at that time, aa the
latter day trusts had not come into tho
field, and Travers' rivals had little mora.
If aa much, capital as hfmaelf.
The thick-coated minks, badgers and
other animals of the northwest dutifully
sacrificed their furs and aklna and Travers
grew proaperous. Unlike most of tho post
traders, he hoarded up his money, dickered
with the Indians, and, like Alexander Sel
kirk, he bought a little Island and was soon
monarch of all he surveyed.
His money, fine clothes and other lux
uries soon excited the Jealousy of the In
dians, who were greer with envy when they
saw they could not go to church on Sunday
In tho same style as their whlto neighbor.
Moreover, their white faced friend could
always go to his larder and produce a
storehouse of "spirits," while they almost
sold their souls for a drink of the "ftra
watrr." The formal cause of dissent, however,
was an American flar which this Yankee
hoisted on a pole ln front of hla log house.
A council of war was held by the Indians
and they resolvod to tear It down. Mr,
John Travers had not lived In the north
west In vain, consequently he had a full
chest of ammunition and a dosen or so
muskets. He heard tho rumors of an at
tack, and thought that while be lived on
his Island the American flag .should float
there. He barricaded tho place, primed his
guns and greeted his savage foes with a
shot. They retreated, vowing vengeance.
Travers managed to get word to Seattle
and a gunboat was dispatched to keep tha
flag afloat. Travers, meanwhile kept his
courage to the sticking point and the flag
still waved. It was with Joyful heart that
Travers, a day or so afterward, saw tha
little gunboat steam Into tha harbor and
train Its guns on the thickets, where slunk,
