MEN AND YOUNG
Lincoln a Captain.
Lincoln enlisted in a company from
Sangamon. He had been elected cap
tain of a militia company on the occa
sion of a muster at Clary's Grove the
fall before. He was absent at the time,
but thankfully accepted and served.
Very much to his surprise his friends
put him up for the captaincy of this
company about to enter active service.
They did not organize at home, how
ever, but marched first to Beardstown
and then to Rushville, in Schuyler
county, where the election took place.
Bill Kirkpatrick was a candidate
against Lincoln, but made a very sorry
It has been said that Lincoln once
worked for Kirkpatrick as a common
laborer and suffered some indignities
at his hands, but the story as a whole
is supported by no credible testimony.
It is certain, however, that the planks
for the boat built by Abe and his
friends at the mouth of Spring creek
were sawed at the mill of a Mr. Kirk
patrick. It was then, likely enough,
that Abe fell in the way of this man
and learned to dislike him.
At all events, when he had distanced
Kirkpatrick and was chosen his cap
tain by the suffrages of men who had
been intimate with Kirkpatrick long
before they had ever heard of Abe, he
spoke of him spitefully and referred in
no gentle terms to some old dispute.
"D n him," said he to Green, "I've
beat him.- He used me badly In our set
tlement for my toil."
!?Captain Lincoln now made a very
modest speech to his comrades, recit
ing the exceeding gratification their
partiality afforded him, how undeserv
ed he thought it and how wholly unex
pected it was. In conclusion he prom
ised very plainly that he would do the
best he could to prove himself worthy
of that confidence.
The troops rendezvoused at Beards
town and Rushville were formed into
four regiments and a spy battalion.
Captain Lincoln's company was attached-
to the regiment of Colonel Sam
uel Thompson. The whole force was
placed under the command of General
On the 27th of April the army march
ed toward the mouth of Rock river by
way of Oquaka on the Mississippi. The
route was one of difficulty and danger,
a great part of it lying through a coun
try largely occupied by the enemy. The
men were raw and restive under disci
pline. In the beginning they had no
more respect for the rules and regula
tions than for Solomon's proverbs or
the Westminster Confession. Captain
Lincoln's company is said to have been
a particularly hard set of men, who
recognized no power but his. They
were fighting men, and but for his per
sonal authority would have kept the
camp In a perpetual uproar.
At the crossing of Henderson river,
a stream about fifty yards' wide, they
were compelled to make a bridge or
causeway with timbers cut by the
troops. "While in camp here," says a
private In Captain Lincoln's company,
"a general order was issued prohibiting
the discharge of firearms within fifty
steps of the camp. Captain Lincoln dis
obeyed the order by firing his pistol
within ten steps of -the camp, and for
this violation of orders was put under
arrest for that day and his sword taken
from him; but the next day his sword
was restored, and nothing more was
done in the matter."
From Henderson river the troops
inarched to Yellow Banks on the Mississippi-
From Yellow Banks a rapid
and exhaustive march of a few days
bronght the volunteers to the mouth of
jRock rlyor, where it was agreed be
EtrfeexT General "Whiteside and General

aoout nxty mnes, to fropnetstown, ana

horses and await the arrival of the reg
Abraham Under Arrest.
But Captain Lincoln's company did
not march on the present occasion with
the alacrity which distinguished their
comrades of other corps. The orderly
sprsrpnnt nttpmntpd to "form pomoa-
ny," but the company declined to be J
formed. The men, oblivious of wars j
and rumors of wars, mocked at the '
word of command and remained be
tween their blankets in a state of se
rene repose. For an explanation of
these signs of passive mutiny we must
resort again to the manuscript of the
private who gave the story of Captain
Lincoln's first arrest: "About the of
April we reached the mouth of Rock
river. About throe or four nights after
ward a man named Rial P. Green,
commonly called Pot Green, belong
ing to a Green county company, came
to our company and waked up the men
and proposed to them that if they
would ' furnish him with a tomahawk
and four buckets he would get into the
officers' liquors and supply the men
with wines and brandies. The desired
articles were furnished him, and, with
the assistance of one of our company,
he procured the liquors. All this was
entirely unknown to Captain Lincoln.
"In the morning Captain Lincoln or
dered his orderly to form company for
parade, but when the orderly called the
rr.en to "parade" they called "parade,'
too, but couldn't fall Into line. The
most of the men were unmistakably
firunk. The rest of the forces marched
off and left Captain Lincoln's company
behind. The company didn't make a
start until about 10 o'clock, and then,
after marching about two miles, the
drunken ones lay down and slept their
drunk off. They overtook the forces
that night. Captain Lincoln was again
put under arrest and was obliged to
carry a wooden sword for two days,
and this although Captain Lincoln was
entirely blameless in the matter."
When General Whiteside reached
Prophetstown he disregarded the plan
of operations concerted between him
and Atkinson and, burning the village
to the ground, pushed on toward Dix
on's Ferry, forty miles farther up the
river. Reaching that place, a forced
march was made to Dixon. There
Whiteside found two battalions of
mounted men, who clamored to be
thrown forward, where they might get
up an independent but glorious "brush"
with the enemy. The general had it not
in his heart to deny these adventurous
spirits, and they accordingly moved
up to a point about twenty miles from
Dixon, where several Indians were
seen hovering along some raised ground
nearly a mile distant The Indians first
' shook a red flag and then dashed off
, at the top of their speed. Three of
i them were overtaken and killed, but
i the rest led Stiilman's command into
an ambuscade, where lay Black Hawk
? himself with 700 of his warriors. The
pursuers recoiled and rode for their
Black Hawk bore down upon Still
man's camp. The fugitives, streaming
back, with fearful cries respecting the
numbers and ferocity of the enemy,
spread consternation through the entire
force. Stillman gave a hasty order to
fall back, and the men fell back much
faster and farther than he intended,
for they never faced about or so much
as stopped until they reached White
side's camp at Dixon.
The first of them reached Dixon
about 12 o'clock, and others came
straggling In all night long and part of
the next day, each party announcing

Stand by Peil.
Fred C. Peil is destined to re
ceive the entire republican vote.
Everywhere he goes he is
warmly welcomed and is rapidly
adding to his host of supporters.
The large following he will be
able to command June 4th will
surprise some people, perhaps,
but not so many after all when
one takes into consideration lhat
this is a republican year.
When it comes to the matter
of clerical ability his superior
never graced the office of sheriff
iu this county. He is a maa ot
spiendid attainments and sterl
ing character. He is cautious
and . economical in business
matters. His clerical ability
will enable him to conduct the
uffice of sheriff as economically
-is tt ever was conducted.
Owing to the fact that Berton
county citizens are lawabiding
psople we are convinced that we
can assure our readers t'nat when
Mr. Peil is elected sheriff our
county jail expenses wiil be kept
the very lowest in tue state
but ve cannot claim any glory
for Fred on this account. It
chances that we ate an unusually
good people and don't make
trouble for the sheriff and expense
for the taxpayers. This is why
our jail epense is light. It is
not so on account of he person
ality of the sheriff and any such
claim is so utterly foplssh. that
the blind can see its l,lly.
