entsof clothing and provisions by the,
Peace Commission, and " a talk-was ar
ranged for the following morning. The
same evening Bogus Charley came in
and told the picket he could take his
gun, as he (Charley) did not intend to
go back' any' more. On the morning of
the 12th, Boston Charley came in and
told the Commission that Captain Jack
and five other Indians would meet them
outside the lines. . Boston and Bogus
Charley then mounted horses and start
ed for the lava-beds; ' About an hour
after this, Geri. Canby, Meacham, Dr.
Thomas, Mr. Dyar, and Fiauk Riddle
and his sauaw, started for the appointed
place of conference. ' A signal officer
on the bluff near the lines watcbed very
closely every movement of the council
station was beard, that the-Indians had
attacked the Commission. Troops were
at once put under arms, and deployed
as skirmishers. Mr. Dyar, Riddle and
i- J J
nis squaw escapea, anu give uie iuuo ty
ing account of
HOW THE MASSACRE COMMENCED.
' Meacham made a short speech to the
Indians, followed by Gen Canby, and
then Dr. Thomas. Then Captain Jack
made a speech, asking for Hot Creek
and Cottonwood, the plaoes now occu
pied by Fairchilds and D orris, for a re
servation, . Meacham told Jack that it
was-not possible to give him what he
asked. Sconchin told Meacham to say
