A.NOTIIK.U N'OTOHIOUM I.SIIIAS KlU.RD.
Ono day this week, Iho notetl Indian.
"Hkookum John," was killed nt I'orl
Klamath, by Caplnln Kelly, and other of
llcersof Comuny (J, under Iho following
circumstance: Karly on Saturday morn
ing last. Cl. Drew dispatched n cnurlrr
to Cupl. Kelly, comninmnng nt rnri
Klamath, with nn order to nrreit Skookum
John, should he Hnt,uro, about thu fort, ns
he had recently done. The courier' horse
failed him on the mountain, 'out, nothing
daunted. Ihe soldier wnaddkd his horse,
headed him for Jacksonville, nnd then con.
tinned his journey lo the fort on foot, with
nil pnolblo dlipalch, very fortunately ar
riving there before Ihe Indians In that vi
cinity had received any notice of Ihe hang
ing of (leorge, ut (Jump Walter. Captain
Kelly read the order, und rcilectlng that,
inairrmch as Hkookum John had, by his
very preposwiing exterior anil general
good and pleawnt Ulmvior, became n fa
vorite with the soldier, he determined to
lake Iho smallest possible chance of the
wllcy victim receiving tho least Intimation
of what was In tho wind, lie, therefore,
nt once called on Unit. White and several
non-commbuioncd oflicera to procure their
pistols, as he required their assistance
nlone in making tho arrest. They found
John In an Indian camp, close by tho fort,
lie was called to one side, and the Captain
addressing him, said: " I lime come tour-
rest you, sir." John nt once attempted lo
draw Ilia revolver, but, quick as n llaih,
the soldierly Captain sent u bullet through I n,0 0yul Ab. or Kongo Itiver should ie
his breast. Tho savage staggered, bill still fw l0 UW j0Ur uruiibacks, what then ?

when Sergeant Underwood gavo him u

and another shot from n third person

ground, but even then nervously grasping

Skookum John was one of the limit
noble looking, intelligent und daring In
dlans on thU coast. lie has been a terror
lo his own tribe. While limy nil hated
him, ho had tlwm so cowed that thoy dared
not attempt to arrest or kill him. 1a
Lake, chief of the tribe, and Joha's uncle,
says he as tho chief Indian of the five
who murdered Iho Utlford p'irly, and all
Indians questioned on Iho subject corrobor
ate that testimony. He has always leen n
blood thirsty advocate of war, but had no
Influence wilh his tribe, because of his
