Ilolciii-thc-liny, flu* Chippewa Chief Bluffed and Ufitrn»*A Bloodier** \ letory.-- A ti Exciting; I,\peri ewee or the Fifth detriment. Binit. I nm ii try In Ikiit. I he following account of an exciting and critical incident in border Indian warfare was written fur the Presa of Carthage, Missouri, by A. XX . St. John, sergeant of Co. (‘. of the regiment named. It will be read with interest by all of his old comrades iii Freclaim county, and by all students of Minnnesota history: In February 1862 I started with about loo men from Albert Lea, Mi un., for Fort Sud ii Mg, Minn, where the Minnesota troops were tieing mus-tered. Ours was Co. C, nth Minnesota Infantry, and after about two months of drilling, we were ordered to Fort Ripley, IM miles up the Mississippi river in the Chippewa Indian country, where we arrived on the first day of April, 1862, and so firm had old winter beld his icy rule that our heavily laden six mid*) team crossed the river that day safely on the ice. As the .spring advanced, the Indians, learning of the trouble the (Treat Father at Washington was having with bis children at the South, and the call for troops to defend the Union, began to show unmistakable signs of hostility toward the settlers in that vicinity, who night afternight would come for miles around to the fort for protection, returning to their homes and work each morning. Hoic-in-the-day was at that time a famous chiel among the Chippewas ;uid was well informed, having been to Washington several times to council With th** white chiefs concerning his IMM»ple. (in on** occasion while there Ii** was presented with a very nice revolving rifle, carrying six shots, and of this fee was extremely proud, becoming so proficient In its use that he seldom missed a bird upon the wing, and many stories were told of Ins shooting four and live Sioux warriors in quick succession during some of the contests that often occurred between those two hostile and warlike tribes. < >ne day a scouting party was sent out toward the agency and great activity appeared to prevail among th*: Indians, one small party exchanging 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 once to the fort. This Indian proved to In* Hold-in-the-day’s right hand man, and one of the guns in his possession was the famous six shooter which was being conveyed by him to his chief. I lie Indian was imprisoned at the fort, and the rifle given to me to keep as I was at that time acting Quartermaster Sergeant of the post. 'file authorities, learning of the threatened hostilities, Gov. Ramsey, accompanied by Indian Commissioner White, and a few others, came up from St. Paul in a coach, with a view of having a council with Chippewa Chief* to see if the threatened trouble could he averted. Word w as sent to llole-in the-day, asking that he meet the Commissioners and Governor in Council which he readily agreed to, naming a large knoll upon the bank of the Mississippi 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 selecting that Hjnjt, intended to capture and dictate terms to, or massacre all who came to hold council with him. Early in the morning the otlicials with Co. ii of the 6th Minn. Infantry as a guard went to the place designated, finding it a hare 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. and the next morning we again marched out to me**t the Indians in council, hut not one carne in sight. At this tine* the policy of lire officials was to pacify the Indians if possible, and prevent any bloodshed, so th** Indian We held as prisoner was released, and on tne order of the Governor th** famous rid** w as given I him to carry to his Chief, I During the terrible Indian war which soon followed wherein over Id*) | settlers upon th** Minnesota frontier, and many soldiers, were massacred, I and untold fiendish crimes committed, I I often regretted that I allowed this ((un to leave my hands without putting I just a little kink in the burr**].

How Will Endure the SU Ii KOI’N DEL). 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, capturing one of our party who chanced to be a few paces behind. We took in the siltation at a glance. One hundred men and ofiicers, upon an elevated piece of ground, surrounded by 5Ui 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 otlicials, evidently intending to make and enforce certain demands. I had rode out with Capt. Frank Hall of our company, who was iii 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 IO of the best shots on the ground to go with him where the Commissioner and Governor were, which was within easy range of Ilole-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, Ilole-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 between us and the fort. This was considered a pretty close call, and every man there breathed easier when he saw that Cant. Hall’s brave and decisive course had won the day without a shot being tired. 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 Indians for a feast, accompanied by some other presents. Before going, a parley was held with the Indians, Ilole-in-the-day begging to have his Fille returned to him, and promising to suspend all hostile actions and meet the Commissioner and Governor at the same place for a friendly council the next day. During that night a few howitzers were taken from the fort and placed ^tomach aild kl;lHev, Hold ,-u nu*, and st.on in position tor business near the place, per bottle by Wedge vt Barlow Druggists.
