Endicott Families

                                                            Arkansas City.
                                                      Henry C. Endicott, Sr.
RKW spent a great deal of time trying to learn about Henry Casey Endicott, Sr., and his family. He was informed by Maryalice Convers, great granddaughter of Rebecca Endicott Garris, who was the daughter of Henry Casey Endicott, Sr., that the father of the “Endicott brothers—Patrick F. Endicott, Henry C. Endicott, Jr., and Samuel Endicott—was born in 1799 in Kentucky and married Jane Calvert in Vandenburg, Indiana.
The newspaper item found by RKW indicates that Henry C. Endicott, Sr., was born March 7, 1809, and that he died in Ponca City, Oklahoma, on December 5, 1898, at the age of 89.
Henry C. Endicott, Sr., was born in Harrison County, Kentucky, March 7, 1809, and died in Ponca City, Oklahoma, December 5, 1898, aged 89. His wife, Lucinda, known as “Lucy” Endicott, died in Arkansas City, Kansas, July 16, 1881.
An 1881 newspaper item that was printed after the death of Mrs. Henry C. Endicott, Sr., does indicate a tie to “Calvert.”
Arkansas City Traveler, August 3, 1881.
We received a pleasant call on Saturday from Mr. Calvert, of Evansville, Indiana, an uncle of P. F. Endicott. Mr. Calvert is one of the substantial citizens of Evansville, and a genial old gentleman. He is taking a pleasure trip to the best part of sunny Kansas, which we hope he may enjoy and ever retain a pleasing recollection of the same.
The very first newspaper item that I found about the Endicott family refers to various “sons and step sons” of Henry C. Endicott, Sr. MAW
Walnut Valley Times, June 3, 1870. Front Page.
Old Mr. Endicott, familiarly known among us as Uncle H., comes properly upon our list of permanent residents, as he is the first pioneer we found when we came, is a man in every sense of the word, a gentleman—generous, hospitable, solicitous for the welfare of all whose good fortune it is to share his acquain­tance, and the number is truly legion, for his claim on the banks of the Walnut has been the general rendezvous for claim hunters during the past winter; and the old gentleman is still ready to accommodate newcomers to plenty of wood, and has always a kind word of welcome to offer to everyone. He has settled around him several sons and step sons, some of them with their families, and the old adage “a black sheep in every family,” does not apply to them in any respect whatever, for they all seem to be moral, energetic, and intelligent, and well suited to the work of building up and improving a new country.
                                                HENRY C. ENDICOTT, SR.
Henry C. Endicott, Sr., was born in Harrison County, Kentucky, March 7, 1809, and died in Ponca City, Oklahoma, December 5, 1898, aged 89. His wife, Lucinda, known as “Lucy” Endicott, died in Arkansas City, Kansas, July 16, 1881.

When Henry C. Endicott was five years old, he moved from Kentucky with his parents (names unknown) to Indiana. In 1859 Mr. Endicott, then about 50 years of age, moved to Shelby County, Illinois. Henry C. Endicott, Sr., and family (wife Lucinda and a seventeen-year-old son) left Shelby County, Indiana, August 8, 1866, to seek a home in Kansas. The family settled near Fall River in Green­wood County, Kansas, the closest town being Eureka, Kansas. Mr. Endicott was a member of the M. E. Church.
The 1870 census shows that Henry C. Endicott, Sr., was 62 years old; his wife, Lucinda, born in Indiana, was 54; and that their youngest son living with them, Samuel, born in Indiana, was 20 years old.
Henry C. Endicott, Sr., had an extensive family living nearby in Greenwood County: the oldest son, Patrick F., was married and had children; also the next son, named Henry C. Endicott, Jr., had a wife and a number of children. Another son, C. C. Endicott, was unmarried.
Henry C. Endicott, Sr.’s youngest son, was Samuel Endicott. Mrs. Shirley Houston gave the following information on Samuel after searching records in Greenwood County.
“We found Samuel’s marriage license to Mary M. Stewart on May 19, 1872.”
Mrs. Houston obtained more information, which shows that Samuel and Mary Endicott were living with their son, Charles Endicott, in Cowley County at the time of the 1875 census. After giving birth in June 1875 to another son, James B. Endicott, Mrs. Samuel T. Endicott died on September 2, 1875, and the baby, James, died soon thereafter on September 26th. The remaining child, Charles Endicott, died on October 16, 1876. Mrs. Houston was able to determine that Mrs. Samuel Endicott and the two Endicott children were buried at the old Ladd-Barrier Cemetery three or four miles northwest of Eureka, Kansas.
The 1875 census shows that the youngest son of Henry C. Endicott, Sr., Samuel, had married a lady with the initials M. M., and they had one son, C. V., born in 1873. Samuel was 20 when the family moved to Arkansas City so he was unable to claim land at that time. He later claimed a farm west of the city; but had the mortgage foreclosed in 1880.
Patrick F. Endicott, the oldest son of Henry C. Endicott, was the first of the Endicott family to enter Cowley County and secured a claim in the city known eventually as Arkansas City.
                                                  PATRICK F. ENDICOTT.
The eldest son, Patrick F. Endicott, with his second wife, Mary (Polly) Simpson Endicott, and two step-children, Miss Temperance and George F., left Shelby County, Indiana, on August 8, 1866. The family moved to Fall River. They had a son, Edward, who was born in 1867. Mary Simpson Endicott died in Fall River. Patrick Endicott later married a lady by the name of Mary Carder.
                                      Death of Mary (Polly) Simpson Endicott.
On September 26, 1996, Mrs. Shirley Houston, whose husband was a direct descendant of Patrick F. Endicott, sent an account of the death of Patrick F. Endicott’s second wife, Mary (Polly) Simpson Endicott, in Greenwood County, Kansas, in 1868, as told to her by another cousin, Loren Corliss, whose mother was Dencie Endicott Corliss.

It seems that Mary (Polly) Endicott was alone with her two step-children, Temperance and George, and her one-year-old son, Edward, at the Endicott cabin in Greenwood County when she saw a prairie fire approaching. Fearing it would engulf the cabin, she set backfires all around the cabin. She was successful in saving the cabin and the children, but died a few days later herself. Here there is some disagreement with the facts that are documented—the story goes that she died because she had just had a baby and the effort was simply too much for her so soon after giving birth. However, there is no record of a new baby in the family and little Edward was almost a year old at the time of her death.
Mrs. Shirley Houston was unable to verify the story or to find the grave of Mary (Polly) Endicott even though she searched in both Kansas and Shelby Co., Illinois, where Mary married Patrick F. Endicott.
Patrick F. Endicott, the oldest son of Henry C. Endicott, Sr., died in Arkansas City on April 5, 1924, aged 89. He came to Arkansas City when there were Osage Indians camped on the ground that is now the downtown business district. He married four times.
The 1870 census shows that Patrick F. Endicott, born in Indiana, was 34. His third wife, Mary Carder, born in Virginia, was 22. Patrick F. Endicott’s daughter, Temperance, born in Indiana, was 20. His son, George F. Endicott, born in Illinois, was 8. Patrick’s son, Edward G., born in Kansas, was 3. Patrick F. Endicott’s daughter, “Luella.,” born in Kansas, was 1. Records reveal that Patrick F. Endicott had another son, Samuel J., who was born in Kansas in 1873.
The fourth and last marriage of Patrick F. Endicott was reported in the Arkansas City Traveler, December 23, 1901.
“This afternoon Judge Cottingham united in marriage P. F. Endicott and Miss Lydia Finch, both of this city. Mr. Endicott is well known as one of the pioneers and popular citizens of this county and his bride is well and favorably known by a large circle of friends.”
The following were listed in 1901 as the children of Patrick F. Endicott.
George F. Endicott, Newkirk, Oklahoma; Edward G. Endicott of Three Sands, Oklahoma; Samuel J. Endicott, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Mrs. Luella Carder, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and Mrs. Mildred Mahon, Chicago Illinois.
                                  Patrick Endicott Joins Norton’s Party in 1869.
Thanks to a granddaughter of Patrick F. Endicott, Mrs. Dencie Endicott Corliss, the “Endicott Story” was told by Patrick F. Endicott in Volume I, Between the Rivers, which was copyrighted in 1969 by Ruth Norris Berger and Bess Riley Oldroyd.
 “Pad” Endicott met the “Norton party” from Emporia, Kansas, on their way to open up the Osage land. According to Patrick F. Endicott’s reminiscences, he accompanied two of the party on a scouting trip of the future Arkansas City in 1869. He further says, “There were eighteen men and one woman in the party that left Fall River one September morning in 1869, a few were my neighbors, to look for new homes for ourselves. Mr. Norton was our leader.”
His account about two trips circa September 1869 with members of the “Norton party” cannot be correct. Professor Henry Brace Norton’s brother, Capt. Gould Hyde Norton, one of the principal members of the “Norton party,” arrived in the last week of November 1869 in Emporia. Prof. Norton’s article about a two weeks’ camping trip was printed in the Emporia Times January 14, 1870. In 1876 Wirt Walton’s “History of Cowley County,” printed in two different Winfield, Kansas, newspapers, refers to the Norton party arriving at the future town of Winfield during the last week of December, 1869.

Further confusion about dates becomes apparent with the “History of Cowley County” given by Wirt Walton in 1876. The following article appeared in the Thursday, January 6, 1876, edition of the Winfield Courier.
                                                     CENTENNIAL ISSUE.
                                          HISTORY OF COWLEY COUNTY.
In March, April, and May, 1869, H. C. Endicott, Senior, Geo. Harmon, W. Johnson, Ed Chapin, Pad Endicott, Pat Somers, and J. (Z.) K. Rogers took claims along the Walnut in the vicinity of the present town. H. C. Endicott built the first house in that part of the county. In September following Z. K. Rogers died at Endicott’s house: the first death in the county.
On July 13, 1876, the Winfield Courier printed the following item.
Winfield Courier, July 13, 1876.
THROUGH the solicitation of friends we publish on our first page this week our Centennial History of the county. For the facts concerning Cowley’s early history, we are indebted to the “old settlers,” among whom we might mention Col. Manning, C. M. Wood, Jas. Renfro, Judge Ross, Dr. Graham, and others, of this neighborhood; Judge McIntire, H. C. Endicott, and T. A. Wilkinson, of Arkansas City; Capt. Jas. McDermott, of Dexter; S. S. Moore, of Tisdale; and J. W. Tull, through R. C. Story, Esq., of Lazette. For the courtesy of county, township, and city officers in placing at our disposal, books, records, etc., we are particularly grateful.
[Note: The “Centennial History” referred to above was printed in the Cowley County Democrat rather than the Winfield Courier.]
Cowley County Democrat, Winfield, Kansas, Thursday, July 13, 1876.
                                          HISTORY OF COWLEY COUNTY.
                  Read at the Centennial Celebration, July 4th, 1876, at Winfield, Kansas.
                                                    BY WIRT W. WALTON
On January 1, 1870, T. A. Wilkinson, John Brown, G. H. Norton, and John Strain staked out and claimed the four claims upon which Arkansas City now stands, as the location of the new town. H. B. Norton took a claim adjoining the town site on the north. H. B. Kellogg took a claim south of the town site.
[Correction of above item: On January 1, 1870, T. A. Wilkinson, John Brown, Capt. Gould Hyde Norton, John Strain, and Silas A. Moore staked out their claim and laid the rude log foundations of the town they then called “Delphi.” Professor Henry Brace Norton took a claim adjoining the townsite on the north, and Hiram D. Kellogg took a claim south of the townsite. For some reason, the name of “Silas A. Moore” was left out. The item concerning those who took claims on the townsite is next. MAW]
Emporia News, February 25, 1870.
This new town (formerly called Delphi) at the mouth of the Walnut seems to promise good things. The town company consists of Messrs. Plumb, Stotler, Norton, Eskridge, and Kellogg, of Emporia; Judge Brown and H. L. Hunt, of Cottonwood Falls; Kellogg & Bronson, of El Dorado; Baker & Manning, of Augusta; and Messrs. G. H. Norton, Strain, Brown, Moore, and Wilkinson on the site.
                                                     Claims Already Taken.

When this party arrived at the mouth of the Walnut, they found the bottom and timber claims taken by H. Endicott, and his son, Pad, and George Harmon, Ed Chapin, Pat Somers, Mr. Carr, Mr. Hughes, and one or two others.
                                 Settlement of Endicott Family in Arkansas City.
Patrick Endicott liked what he saw better than what the three Endicott families had. On his return to Fall River, recognizing the importance of being an early settler, the Endicott family decided Patrick should immediately return to Arkansas City and establish claims for all of the Endicott families, while they liquidat­ed their holdings at Fall River. The families would remain at Fall River until Pat could build a cabin for them and then join him.
According to the story told by Patrick F. Endicott years later, during the absence of Professor Henry Brace Norton, who had to make a trip to Emporia for necessary supplies, the remaining members of the “Norton party” were advised by the Osage interpreter, William Conner, that Chief Hard Rope had decided that they must leave within “three more suns.” Patrick Endicott relates the threatening movements of the Osage chief, who confronted him one day with a gun, and his quick response in raising an axe, which he was using to chop logs for his cabin. Hard Rope left after they stood eyeing each other for several minutes.
According to Patrick F. Endicott’s story, Professor Norton and Hard Rope met, and Norton was able to convince Hard Rope through maps and papers of the intentions of the “Great White Father in Washington” to buy the Osage land, placing the Osage Indians on a land equally as good and as large as the one they then had. As a result, Hard Rope offered Mr. Norton his pipe and peace prevailed.
Patrick F. Endicott stated that no one in the Norton party understood surveying. Professor Norton had promised the Osage Indians that the party would pay for the land they got. The Osage had no use for money; therefore land was secured via payments of a horse, a gun, blankets, etc., something the Indians could use. The deal was completed by the “white man” signing a paper. Later each owner got a deed from the government.
According to RKW’s research, Patrick F. Endicott’s claim was as follows.
Patrick Endicott took the claim that is bounded by Tyler Avenue on the north, the section line on the west, Lincoln Avenue on the south and the Walnut River on the East. This land had been claimed by John Tull, in April of 1869. Tull aban­doned his claim after the Indians burned his cabin and hay crop. Tull relocated in Octo­ber 1869 on Grouse Creek (Southeast quarter, Section 21, Township 31, Range 4E.).
Patrick F. Endicott built his cabin near the Walnut river about where the ADM flour mill is located in 2002.
The three Endicott families who joined Patrick F. Endicott in staking out claims in the future Arkansas City consisted of Henry C. Endicott, Sr., and his wife, Lucinda; Henry C. Endicott, Jr., and his family; and another son of Henry C. Endicott, Sr., C. C. Endicott, known as “Cass” Endicott.
                                                      Henry C. Endicott, Sr.
The elder Henry Endicott’s claim was bounded by Birch Avenue on the north, Eighth Street on the west, Chestnut Avenue on the south, and First Street on the east.

The April 24, 1992, issue of the Arkansas City Traveler, contained an article and photograph of the “oldest home in Arkansas City.” The house, built by Henry C. Endicott, Sr., at 325 North Sixth Street, still exists in 2002. The present owner is Opal Belt, who stated in the 1992 article that she knew just what she doing when she bought the oldest standing house in Arkansas City in 1967. “All my relatives thought I was crazy but I’ve always liked old things,” she said. The two-story stone house faces Sixth Street, surrounded by a fence with an iron gate. When it was built, however, the entrance was on Spruce Avenue.
Henry C. Endicott, Sr., built the back section of the house about the time that the Arkansas City Town Company was organized on July 13, 1871, ceding three quarters of his land grant in exchange for one-sixteenth interest in the company.

                                      HENRY C. (“HANK”) ENDICOTT, JR.
Henry C. Endicott, Sr.’s second son was Henry C. Endicott, Jr., (often referred to as “Hank” Endicott), who moved with his wife, Lavinia, to Fall River, Greenwood County, Kansas.
The 1870 census shows that Henry C. Endicott, Jr., born in Indiana, was 29; and his wife, Lavinia, born in Illinois, was 26. They had three children, all born in Kansas: Jacob, 4; Larkin, 2, and James, who was born in February 1870.
Henry C. Endicott, Jr., born in Indiana, came from Illinois. His age in 1875 was listed at 33; his wife Lavinia, born in Illinois, was 30. They had three boys, all born in Kansas. They were Jacob C. Endicott, 8; J. C. [James], 7; and L. H. [Larkin], 6.
The younger Henry C. Endicott’s claim was bounded by Madison Avenue on the north, F Street on the west, Tyler Avenue on the south, and Summit Street on the east. Young Henry Endicott established the “City Meat Market” on Summit Street between Fifth Avenue and Central Avenue.
                                                C. C. (“CASS”) ENDICOTT.
A census taken in Creswell Township, Cowley County, March 1, 1875, reflects that C. C. Endicott, who became known as “Cass” Endicott, age 28, born in Indiana, came from Illinois.
[Note: The proper name for C. C. Endicott remains in some doubt. He was at times noted in legal items appearing in the newspapers “Cresswell C. Endicott” and at other times as “Caswell Endicott.”]
                                               Different Census Information.
The February 10, 1870, special census of Cowley County listed C. C., H. C., H. C., and P. F. Endicott.
         The following census covers Henry Endicott, Jr., and C. C. Endicott in 1875.

Tolles and Endicott, of Grouse Creek, built a flatboat, twenty-five feet long by six feet wide, and loading it with 4,000 pounds of flour, started on Sunday morning down the Arkansas to find a market. This is just a trial trip; but if successful, it is their intention to ship all their flour in that direction.

DEPUTY U. S. MARSHAL R. L. WALKER has been for several days engaged in ferreting out the illicit distilling of liquor near this place, and on Sunday last found where the still had been, and arrested Wm. Magee as one of the parties connected with it. Magee was brought to town and confined at the Central Avenue hotel. On Monday morning, about three o’clock, he asked to go out, pretending to be sick. Mr. Walker gave his consent, telling Mr. Magee to leave his boots and hat. Magee left them, and in his shirt and pants, made a run toward the Arkansas bridge, getting so much of a start that the Sheriff did not overtake him. The still, we are informed, was on Cass Endicott’s farm, but had not been there a great while. Not long ago it was on Grouse Creek, and by this time there is no telling where it is. It seems the parties connected with it moved it about from place to place, and located it where they chose, without the knowledge of the owners of the land. It remains to be proven whether even Magee was in any manner connected with it. The efforts of the Sheriff, however, have resulted in stopping its work in Cowley County.

On last Wednesday evening a man rode through this place on his way to Winfield, and gave the startling information that six freighters from this place had been killed by a mourning party of Osages while returning from Fort Sill. But few people gave the matter much thought that night, but the next morning, as the rumor spread and became more widely known, some of our citizens began to think there might be something in it, as it was known that the Chetopa mourning party had left the Agency.
Hank Endicott started for Caldwell in the morning, to learn more about it if possible, but meeting a man from that place who told him they had heard nothing of the rumor there, he returned, satisfied that the whole affair was a canard.
Friday evening A. A. Davis, one of the freighters, came in from the Territory, and relieved everybody by saying that all the boys were together, safe, and sound, and had seen no signs of redskins.
It is now plainly evident that the story was started by someone for a purpose of his own, and it may not be a very difficult matter to guess either the person or the purpose. The time has passed when the people along the border are to be easily frightened by plausible tales of Indian massacres, but the practice of inventing such rumors is one that cannot be too severely condemned. Rest assured the object will never be accomplished in that way.

                         Fort Sill, Wichita, Cheyenne, Kiowa, and Cheyenne Agencies.
Tuesday morning we left Wichita Agency for Fort Sill. After we had traveled about five miles, we met George Shearer, Jerome Hilton, Charles Peters, and E. Worther, and at noon we came to where a number more were camped for dinner, on Killpecker Creek, to wit: Frank Hutchinson, A. W. Patterson, Walt Dolby, H. S. Adams, Hank Nelson, Ross Merrick, Cass Endicott, Sam Endicott, John Tolles, Buck Wintin, Frank Wintin, Jack Martin, Frank Johnson, Wagstaff, Jim Burrell, and Benj. Harberson. Hank Nelson had met with an accident and had his arm in a sling, having been thrown from his wagon while trying to get ahead of someone. We were the invited guests of Ross Merrick, and partook readily of his “sow belly,” biscuit, and what the boys called “bovine” gravy. The rain fell in chunks while we were at dinner, and the meal was stowed away as soon as possible.
We had proceeded but a few miles from our dining place when a fearful storm arose, accompanied by rain. Being anxious to get home, we kept on until our overcoats were soaked with water. A cold north wind with hail and snow then set in, and our faces were beaten blue with hail stones, and coats frozen on our backs, before we reached timber and a good camping place.

In camp we soon had a good fire, dried our clothes, and made our bed in the wagon, and were soon warm and fast asleep, not­withstanding we had been told that the Endicott boys had been murdered and scalped by Indians a few days before, near the same place. We were then in the treacherous Osage country, and used discretion accordingly, although we had no apprehensions of trouble.

                                              PUEBLO, COL., June 7th, 1877.
As we journeyed up the Arkansas River to Dodge City, we saw a great deal of wheat, good as any I ever saw. Dodge City is a lively little town, as well as a hard one. It is in the valley near Fort Dodge. Has near 250 inhabitants, with 17 houses of ill fame and 3 dance houses, where regular soldiers and cow boys, as well as citizens, take their spite out in shooting one another. I was told that there were over 200 persons buried there, and only 5 died of natural death.
Traveling through the eastern portion of Colorado, one can see many towns, which once were lively, but today are dead; Pueblo one among the rest. Pueblo once claimed near 5,000 inhabitants, but the rush to the mining districts hurt her. Property which four years ago could have been sold for $7,000 sold the other day for $2,500. A person can rent a nice brick residence in town for $5 or $6 per month.

Many who come to this country leave their families in Pueblo and vicinity and go on to the mines, as everything is cheap here and they can keep their families for half what they can in the mountains. Goods are as cheap here as they are in Kansas. Best flour, five dollars per hundred; coffee, 3½ pounds per dollar; bacon sells at 13 cents per pound, and everything else in propor­tion. Dry goods are a good deal cheaper here than they are in Kansas.
Now let me say something about the mines. Doubtless, they are rich in all their mineral properties, but on account of their being mostly owned by poor men who are not able to buy a suffi­cient amount of machinery which they should have, they cannot give work to more than half of the people who are immigrating there at the present time. Taking Colorado all over, it is a poor place for a poor man. It is entirely overdone by poor men.
Lake City, among many other towns in the mines, has at present 800 or 1,000 men without money or work. Those who can get work for their board are doing so, while many are stealing. Hundreds are leaving and hundreds are coming in.
Colorado is a poor place for a poor man to come to at present. All those who can stay in Kansas and make their board, had better stay, for they can’t make anything here. I think in the course of a year or two, when the mines get developed, it will be a good place for a laboring man, but it is running over with laboring men now.
I started to Colorado from Cowley County last April, where I had been living since 1870. I had the intention of making Colorado my home and haven’t changed my mind yet. I like the country as well as I expected, and think Colorado is the healthi­est country I was ever in. That is the reason why I expect to make it my home.
Rosy [Rosey] and Cass Endicott are well satisfied with the country, also Coburn and Jay.

A report was industriously circulated one day last week that Cass Endicott and his partners had disposed of their mine in Colorado for the snug sum of $100,000. Upon inquiry we found that there was no foundation for the story other than a letter claimed to have been written by some irresponsible party, and we are inclined to believe with Sam Endicott—that if there had been anything in it, he would have known it as soon as an outsider.

Arkansas City Traveler, May 18, 1881.
A case of snake bite occurred to a man working for Mr. Endicott, who was bitten on the hand by a copperhead. The hand and arm commenced to swell up, but some whiskey and alcohol being procured, further harmful effects were prevented.

Take Turpentine, one pint; Corrosive Sublimate, one ounce; Gum Camphor, one ounce. Mix well in a vial, and when occasion demands its use, apply to the part bitten.

                                              Arrest of the Stevens-Mills Cattle.
Complaint having been made to F. P. Schiffbauer, justice of the peace of Creswell Township, that a herd of fevered cattle were within the state, the justice notified the county attorney, who ordered Deputy Sheriff Rarick to take charge of the same and hold them until they could be inspected as provided by law in article 9, chapter 105, of the general statutes, which relates to Texas cattle.
The justice thereupon appointed C. G. Thompson, C. M. Scott, and Henry Endicott as an investigating committee, who proceeded to the east part of town, where the cattle were held, and after examination submitted the following report.
                                  REPORT OF THE BOARD OF INSPECTORS.

We, the undersigned board of inspectors, appointed to inspect the cattle under charge of Deputy Sheriff Rarick, as fevered cattle, held on complaint of S. C. Murphy, have to say that we proceeded to where the cattle were, and found that they were the property of W. M. Stevens, of Coffeyville, Kansas, and A. Mills, of Chetopa, Kansas, and numbered 1,020 head, that 800 of them were shipped from Mississippi in February, 1884, and 220 head were shipped from the same state in April last; that the 800 were wintered in Labette County, within this state, and all the number, 1,020, held on Russell Creek, Indian Territory, two miles below the state line; that there had been but three deaths, where held, and no cattle had died from fever in their neighborhood; that they had not been in contact with fevered cattle, and that the 25 graded bulls turned in this spring were still living in the herd; that at this time there were but six lame ones, caused, in our judgment, by driving over rough, stony ground; that at this time we could not discover any sign of fever among them, and that we recommend they be released from custody.

Cass Endicott kicked a light out of G. W. Miller & Co.’s show window last Saturday night. Later on in the evening someone threw a large stone, striking the sash and shivering several lights to atoms.

                                                         A Disastrous Deed.

Last Saturday night week, about ten p.m., a party of men were passing in front of Geo. W. Miller & Co.’s Hardware Store on Summit Street when one of them deliberately kicked out one of the lights in the store door. Mr. Miller saw the act, and going out, suggested to Cass Endicott, who did the damage, that he pay 75 cents to replace the glass, which he very unwillingly did, and then went away. About 12 o’clock the same night a stone was thrown by someone, which broke one of the large window lights in the same store, and the night watchman claims he ran the sneaking coward into a house; but omits to give his reason for not following him and making an arrest, although he says he knows the man’s name. The “boss” conundrum of the hour is, “What good is a night watchman anyhow, who dares not or will not make an arrest?”

Several evenings since the alarm of mad dog was sounded near S. F. Endicott’s residence. Some five men gave chase to what they supposed to be a rabid canine. Some went on horseback. Mr. Endicott rode at breakneck speed to Mr. Tyner’s residence to give the alarm and to obtain Charley and his double-barrel shotgun’s assistance. Amid the cries of “Here he is,” “shoot him,” etc., the pursuers chased the dog over “hill and vale, through bramble and briar,” and finally shot him when they arrived at N. Kimmel’s residence. Now the trouble with the pursuers was to satisfy themselves that it was a mad dog. So Mr. Kimmel was made coroner and the pursuers the jury. A verdict was rendered that the dog was a dead one, and, perhaps, a mad one.

His leg received a severe gash about six inches in length and the pony was so badly cut up that it was thought it would die for several days. Jake was unable to walk for several days, but he is now getting better.

Mr. and Mrs. Henry Endicott completed the twentieth year of their married life on Monday, and in the evening a large number of their friends paid a visit to their residence to congratulate them on this anniversary of their wedded bliss. The house was thrown open to the reception of this party of merry makers, and a happy time was enjoyed, the Arkansas City Serenade club discoursing some of their excellent music. Henry Endicott and his estimable wife rank among the old settlers of the Arkansas valley, and have won the esteem of the whole community. This visit from a whole houseful of friends was but a testimonial of the regard in which the pair are held. The party was bountifully entertained, and the most cordial sentiments were expressed on both sides. As a fitting memento an elegant set of china was presented, Rev. Mr. Buckner making a short and fitting address. The TRAVELER joins with the many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Endicott in wishing that these anniversaries may be repeated until they attain the fulfillment of their golden wedding.

                                                            The Exposition.
The above is the title chosen by the ladies of the M. E. Aid Society for their entertainments, which commenced Wednesday, and continued day and evening, concluding last evening. Although the word exposition sounds rather metropolitan, and suggests a New Orleans or a Chicago World’s Fair display; yet, notwithstanding, the REPUBLICAN representative was surprised at the extent and real merit of the display. But before entering the exposition, the gatekeeper must have noticed our famished appearance, and suggested dinner; upon which hint we started in the direction indicated. Being seated, and with the sight and scent of delicacies in all directions, a lady drew near and remarked “ticket.” Bro. Hoffman had anticipated this emergency, for earlier in the day he had placed in our emaciated hand the little paste board inscribed with the word “dinner.” The situation then, was money, ticket, or no dinner; and we then realized how absolutely necessary it was to produce the ticket. We found it, and immediately commenced on Mondamin. Bro. Lockley was not so nearly famished as we, and seemed determined to have nothing to do with Mondamin until he had found out its origin, so plied guests and attendants with questions. When last noticed he was brandishing knife and fork with a dexterity and abandon that betokened destruction to Mondamin. Bob. Hutchison said he could only be spared an hour from the store; but he not only consumed the hour but everything else in his reach. Being near him, we feared the management would blame us also, so while his attention was directed toward a big corn pone, we “glid.” The dinner was excellent. Under the guidance of Mrs. Henry Endicott, we made the tour of the exposition proper. And by the way, Mrs. Endicott can discourse on the relics and curiosities like a museum attendant. The collection consisted of newspapers and books dating back 200 years, old and curiously shaped dishes, ancient coins, revolutionary relics, and all kinds of curiosities with a whole history attached, while others have no other interest than that they have been family heirlooms for hundreds of years. An old wedding dress, Mrs. Ochs’ great-great-grandmother’s, is said to be 233 years old. Mrs. Boudle also has an interesting collection. Mr. Eldridge’s Mexican collection is fine. But space will not permit to notice the many articles of real merit. The concert which was to have come off last evening has been indefinitely postponed on account of sickness of several of the performers. The exposition was a success financially and otherwise.

Henry C. Endicott’s grocery house...
Arkansas City Republican, November 7, 1885.
Wednesday afternoon a team belonging to T. D. Richardson ran away. It started from in front of G. B. Shaw & Co.’s lumber yard, where it was standing, and came south on Summit Street at a break-neck speed until they arrived in front of Henry Endicott’s grocery house, where they collided with A. Bookwalter’s team and wagon. Mr. Richardson’s team was hitched to his well drill apparatus, which is very heavy, and when the team struck the rear end of Mr. Bookwalter’s wagon, both were thrown several feet into the air. Both wagons were considerably damaged, especially Mr. Bookwalter’s. As soon as the collision occurred, Mr. Bookwalter’s team broke loose and went dashing down Summit street. It was stopped before any further damage was done, after running about four blocks. No one was injured. The horses were somewhat scared, and the wagons were smashed to smithereens.

                                                           The Jail Delivery.

Last Monday night at about 9 o’clock, the first successful jail delivery was effected in Cowley County at Winfield. The prisoners, not usually locked in their cells till 9 or 9:30 o’clock, were at large in the jail corridor. Sheriff McIntire and Deputy Joe Church had just gone uptown, when the prisoners rapped on the iron door of the jail and called for water. Jailor Tom H. Herrod and Deputy Henry A. Champlain remained at the jail to attend the prisoners. They went to answer the summons, Champlain guarding with his revolver for any emergency, when Herrod opened the door. It was opened only about one foot when five of the prisoners made the break for liberty. Chas. Swift, the leader of the gang, convicted of forgery last week, grabbed Herrod and pulled him in while Bill Matney, a U. S. prisoner for horse stealing in the Territory, gave him a blow on the top of the head with a bed slat that stunned him and he fell back against the door sill. Before he fell, Champlain couldn’t shoot for fear of hitting Herrod, but as soon as he was knocked down, the guard opened fire with his revolver. Wm. P. Bennett, whose conviction for counterfeiting was scarcely four hours old, grabbed the door low down and was in the act of slamming it wide open when a ball from Champlain’s 45 took him in the groin, ranged upward, severed the main artery, and without uttering a word, he whirled around, sank down by a cell door, and in three minutes had bled to death. The shot was paralyzing. The smoke from the first shot blinded the guard, but he blazed away again; whether the shot took effect or not is unknown. Swift sprang forward, belted Champlain a blow on the head with a bed slat, momentarily stunning him. The final dash was made and before Champlain could gather himself, four of the prisoners were out. Three of them went between the jail and Finch’s house, and the deputy followed them with the remaining bullets in his revolver. Another went around the west side of the jail and jumped the fence southwest of the courthouse. Sheriff McIntire was on the scene in a few minutes, organized a posse, and made hot pursuit though the cloudy darkness gave the criminals every advantage. Marshal Gray and Capt. Rarick were telephoned and they also got out a squad of searchers. None of the fugitives were found until Wednesday when Chas. Swift and David Wiggins were captured in the vicinity of Dexter. Wednesday night Bill Matney was captured. He was caught at the Chilocco Indian Schools in the Territory by Sam Endicott. Marshal Gray took the prisoners to Winfield Thursday morning. Those who escaped were: Chas. Swift, convicted last week of forging the name of J. T. Stinson to a $15 check and passing it on J. B. Lynn. Bill Matney has been in jail for two months awaiting a trial before the U. S. Court, for horse stealing in the Territory. John David Wiggins was convicted last Friday of manufacturing and circulating counterfeit silver dollars. He was arrested at Atlanta two months ago, with his “kit” of tools with him in a “grip.” W. P. Bennett, who was killed, was an assistant of Wiggins in the counterfeiting business. James Whitehead was a horse thief. There were several other prisoners in the corridor, but they made no attempt to get out. The latter has not been captured.

                                                  Meeting of the School Board.

There was a meeting of the school board on Monday, the 19th last, at which a slight breeze was blown up. The president of the board, before that body convened, suggested that a secret session be held, but no such resolution was adopted by the board. In the early part of the session, William Gall, the architect of the proposed schoolhouse, entered the room, but was requested by the president to retire, as the board was in secret session. He made a hasty exit. Others also entered, who on receiving a similar notification, also made themselves scarce. Finally Prof. Weir presented himself, and was requested by Rev. Witt to retire; but that gentleman thought he had a right to be present, so he took his seat and remained there during the meeting. Some delay in the work will be caused by this bluff practice on Mr. Gall, as it is his duty to notify the contractors whose bids have been received of the fact. He naturally feels annoyed, and says the next time he is invited to leave a meeting he has a right to attend, he will know what authority he is dealing with.
The following are the bids that were accepted.
J. E. Beck & Co., basement complete, $595.70.
Baer & Endicott, brick in walls, $2,108.
H. H. Hyatt, carpenter work, $1,100.
G. W. Lacey, lathing and plastering, $650.
George Haysel, cut stone, $413.
G. B. Shaw & Co., lumber, $2,125.
Ferguson & Thomas, painting, $340.
Howard Bros. Hardware, $90.
G. W. Miller, tinwork, $28.42.
Total (exclusive of nails): $7,450.12
Measures will be taken to condemn the site for the building in the second ward.

                                                    THE BUILDING BOOM.
            On South Summit Street—Six Business Rooms to Be Constructed Immediately.

This morning a representative of the DAILY REPUBLICAN caught on to a big building scheme. P. F. Endicott, E. Carder, Thos. Tyner, Thos. Kimmel, W. F. Moore, J. F. Hoffman, and A. A. Newman have entered into an agreement to erect a handsome business block of six rooms, on lots south of the Burroughs’s block. Work is to be commenced in a few days. The block is to be two stories high and 100 feet deep with basements under the entire block. Storerooms are in demand in Arkansas City. As rapidly as they can be built, they are occupied. The building of these six business houses will aid very much in supplying the demand. It will be but a short time until Summit street will be lined all the way to the canal with handsome stone and brick business blocks.
