Black River Falls, Wis., Dec. 18. – William Blowsnake, a young brave of the Winnebago tribe, died a few days ago from the effects of a fight with a fellow warrior near the Indian village. The row started through a drunken quarrel and knives were the weapons used to settle the trouble. Blowsnake was stabbed in the shoulder and died from the effects of the wound after several days of intense suffering. All the big medicine men of the tribe were called in and Indian skill was applied, together with weird incantations which were offered up, failed to save the young brave. Little is said about the affair, and it is rumored that the tribe will deal with the accused according to tribe custom, and will not resort to civilized methods in dealing out justice.
