ernor, it Is easy enough. fflVftttANS; CORNER. The Indians know us and know that we know them better than they know themselves. You folks from the east have an idea that what you call Indian- atrocities are simply unmeaning exhibitions of brutality: that scalping, for instance, is simply a form of torture. In that you are mistaken; The Indian believes that no man can go to the happy hunting groundheaven ve- call, it-- who has been deprived of his hair. Their motive in scalping a victim is to carry out fiendish hatred to its utmost by preventing him from having a happy, hereafter. Therefore, to deprive an Indian of his scalp is to rob him of his hope of a happy hereafter.! SMy men never kill an Indian without jscalping him, and the Indians know that. The forty men I will select for this' expedition are unin their aim with the rifle. They erring can shoot sixteen shots in sixteen seconds and every ball means a dead Indian and every dead Indian means a scalp and every scalp means a warrior deprived eternally of a chance of ever reaching the happy hunting ground. My forty men will walk from here to Port C. F. Smith without firing a shot." "Incredible" said Gov. Smith. "True," said Capt McCabe. What was the result? Forty men walked 250 miles from Bozeman to Fort Cj F. Smith. Indians watched them on every side. By days their progress was signaled by circling columns of smoke and by night Ly fire from mountain tons. But not a shot was fired. When they got within sight of Fort C. F. Smith the 1.000 whooping Sioux who held the garrison In siege fled, and the forty frontiersmen from Bozeman marched In and escorted 200 union soldiers back to the territorial capital without the loss of a life. Not a shot had been fired. Not a scalp had been lifted. This is unwritten history.
