Chippt-wa Cliirf HluflVd and Ceaten-- A lilood- les.i Kxritine Kxneri- enci- of the Fifth itrgiment. Minn. Infantry in IMOg. The account of an excit- ing and critical incident in border Indian warfare was written for the I'tess of Carthage, Missouri, by A. W. St. John, secant of Co. ('.'of the regiment named, it will be read with interest by all of his old comrades in Freebont county, and by all students of Minnnesota history: in February 1802' I started with about VKj men from Albert Lea, Minn., for Fort Sntiling, Minn, tht; Minnesota troops were being mus- tered. (Mrs was Co. C, 5th Minnesota infantry, and after about two months of drilling, we were ordered to Fort liipley, 1-jtJ miles up the Mississippi river in the Chippewa Indian country, where we arrived on the first day of April, and so tirm had old winter held his icy rule that our heavily laden six mule team crossed the river that day safely on the ice. As the spring advanced, the Indians, learning of the trouble the Great Father at Washington was having with his children at the South, and the call for troops to defend the I'nion, began to show unmistakable signs or hostility toxvard the settlers in that vicinity, who night after night would come for miles around to the fort for [irotection, returning to their homes mid work each morning. Hole-in-the-day was at that time a Famous chief among the Chippexvas tnd was well informed, having been to Washington several times to council with the white chiefs concerning his jtople. On one occasion while there was presented with a very nice revolving riile, carrying six shots, and of this he was extremely proud, be- coming so proficient in its use that he stidoni missed a bird upon the wing, and many stories were told of tis shooting four and five Sioux ivarriors in quick succession during some of the contests that often occurred jetxveen those two hostile and warlike tribes. One day a scouting party was sent out toxvard the agency and great activity appeared to prevail among ;he Indians, one small party exchang- ng a few shots with them, and then retreating out of sight, although no active hostilities had been commenced. An hour later they came quite unex- pectedly upon and'captured a stalwart chief with two guns and took him at nee to the fort. This Indian proved to be llole-in-the-day's right hand man, and one of the gitns in his possession was the famous six shooter which was being conveyed by him to his chief. The Indian was imprisoned at the fort, and the rifle given to me to keep as I was at that time acting Quarter- master Sergeant of the post. The authorities, learning of the threatened hostilities, Gov. Ramsey, accompanied by Indian. Commissioner White, and a few others, eame up from St. Paul in a coach, with a view of liaving a council with Chippewa Chiefs to see if the threatened trouble could tie averted. AVord was sent to Hole-in the-day, asking that he meet the Com- missioners and Governor in Council, which he readily agreed to, naming a large knoll upon the bank of the Miss- issippi river, about mid-way between the fort and the Chippewa Agency as the place. The events of that day showed that the wily chief, in select- ing that spot, intended to capture and dictate terms to, or massacre all who came to hold council with him. Early in the morning the officials, with Co. 13 of the Gth Minn. Infantry, as a guard went to the place desig- nated, finding it a bare hill with the river running rapidly under the bluff upon one side, and skirted upon all other sides with a heavy growth of brush and timber. SCBROUXDED. Desiring to witness the Council, and see the Indians smoke the pipe of peace, in company with a few officers of the post, I rode out into the open space and began to ascend the hill. We saw the redskins close the gap and take possession of the road behind us, cap- turing one of our party who chanced to be a few paces behind. took in the situtation at a glance. One hundred men and officers, upon an elevated piece of ground, surrounded by 500 well armed Indians in the brush and timber. Chief Hole- in-the-day sat at the base of the hill surrounded by a few of his best men, inside the circle, formed by his warriors, and within speaking distance of the officials, evidently intending to make and enforce certain demands. I had rode out with Capt. Frank Hall of our company, who was in command of the post, and he at once took in the situation, and quickly decided to bluff the Indians by taking advantage of their Chiefs position. Quietly but quickly Capt. Hall ordered 8 or 10 of the best shots on the ground to go with him where the Commission- er and Governor were, which was with- in easy range of Hole-in-the-day, and to be in readiness to take direct aim at him when signaled, and, to shoot him when ordered to fire. He then addressed the Governor saying: "Governor we have been invited here to hold a council with these Indians. We have been betrayed and surrounded, and one of my men taken prisoner. If it means a fight I propose that it shall commence at once, and unless the prisoner is released, and the Indians withdraw from around us, Hole-in-the-day shall be the first man to die." At this our ten muskets were taking deadly aim at the Chief, who understood English, and knew that he at least was beaten, and he quietly sent out runners to have the prisoner released, and to call in his forces be- tween us and the fort. This was considered a pretty close call, and every man there breathed easier when he saw that Capt. Hall's brave and decisive course had won the day without a shot being fired. We were ordered to hold our aim on the Chief until all were ready to return to the fort, and then the officials ordered a few fat oxen to be driven to the In- dians for a feast, accompanied by some other presents, lief ore going, a parley and the next morning we again march- ed out to meet the Indians in council, j but not one camft in sight. At tliis time the policy of the i oilicials was lo pacify the Indians if possible, and prevent anv bloodshed. J so the Indian held as prisoner was released, and on tne order of the Governor the famous ril'e was given him to carry to his Chief. During the terrible Indian war which soon followed wherein over 101> settlers upon the Minnesota frontier, and many soldiers, were massacred, and untold fiendish crimes committed. I often regretted that I allowed this gun to leave my hands without putting just a little kink in the barrel. Is It Khjiit to Lie.' Here is an excellent opportunity for moralists and metaphysicians to" con- sider and discuss the question: Is it right to do wrong to do good. day last week a bold attempt was made near Mansfield, Ohio, to wreck a pas- senger train of the Baltimore A: Ohio railroad. A boy, walking the track, discovered several large boulders ami number of ties upon the track. While taking in the situation he was pounced upon by three tramps, who threatened to cut his throat should he attempt to llag the train. The boy pledged himself not to do it, and hast- ened on eastward, the three secreting themselves in a Held to await develop- ments. The boy had gone but a short distance when the train came in sight at a lively rate of speed, and the lad, contrary to promise, flagged the engin- eer just in time to prevent a horrible wreck. The would-be wreckers at once started for the woods and escaped. The boy gave an accurate descrip- tion of the men, but as yet they have not been apprehended. the boy do right in violating his word, in telling the tramps a lie? Some will contend that he did, but according to the rigid moral law, he certainly "committed a sin, and will be punished for it.
