"William Mathewson who was on the site oi Wichita beiore any other white man of which there is liny record, died at his home, 1047 North Market Street, at 1:10 o'clock this afternoon in his eighty-seventh year. With him at the time was the brother of the late Mrs. Mathew son, who died on the twenty-ninth of January of this year Otha Johnson, a student. The extreme heat of the day probably aided death. It had case of asthma in the cause of aggravated the from which Mr. Mathewson has been suffering for some years and which had grown worse about ten days ago. Death Came in His Chair. Mr. Mathewson was sitting in his easy c hair when he died. Mr. Johnson had been sitting near him, and so calm was the end of this pioneer's life that Mr. Johnson scarcely observed it. That Mr. Mathewson had a premoni (ion f his approaching death, there is no doubt. Sunday he called Airs. Rosa Mathewson, his daughter-in-law, to his fcid and said: "Kosa, I am not long for this w"orld I feel that death is near." And the daughter-in-law said to him: "Daddy, don't talk that way; don't give up." "Ab, Kosa," he said, "I am not giving up; but you know that the old must die." Called the Relatives. When Otha Johnson realized that Mr. Mathewson was dead he telephoned for the daughter, Mrs. George Murray, and for tire daughter-in-law Mrs. Rosa Mathewson. They immediately has tened to the home. I. W. Gill has taken charge of the body and the funeral will be under the direction of the Odd Fellows of which Col. Mathewson was a member for great many years Rnd of which he was the founder In this valley. William A. Mathewson, commonly failed Fred, the only son of Colonel ilathewson, is away irom home and the family Is trying to reach him by telegraph at Kansas City. The other child Is Lucy E. Murray, jirife of George Murray of 324 Indiana l venue. The latter has two children frrho are the only grandchildren of the deceased. He Wn a Pioneer. William Mathewson, who was known far and wide as Buffalo Bill, was a tvatlve of Boone county, N. Y his birthplace being located In the town of Triangle. He was of Scottish parent-ge, his grandfather being one of three brothers who came to this country In the Eighteenth century and settled in Connecticut. William Mathewson Was born January 21, 1880, being the seventh of e'ght children. When a child his Inclinations were for the wild, roving life cf a hunter. Remaining at home after Ms father's death and his mother's second marriage, he attended country schools until he was 10 years old. At the age of 13 he went into the lumber regions of Steuben county, X. Y and there and In western Pennsylvania was employed In the lumber and mill 1 uslnoss a part of each year until l-.e was 18 years old. In the fall of each year, in company with other hunters, he went on long hunting expeditions in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Canada. He Became a Fur Hunter. In 1 s 4 , he embraced the opportunity offered him by the .Northwestern Fur Company, with headquarters at Fort Kenton, Mont., and went west with a patty of men. The party passed through Montana. Dakota, Nebraska and Wyoming, trading with the Indians, finding them friendly .nid associating with thorn lor two y,rs. It was in this expedition that Mathewson acquired his first knowledge of Indian warfare. After nearly two years. .Mr. Mathewson loin, d a party under the leader-ship of the fatuous Kit Carson.

Mr .Mathewson entered the employ of the St. Drain Trading Post Ht the foot of the Rocky Mountains This post furnished supplies foi all of the settlements in Kastern Co. crad .

K-atan'a. with a small l and of warriors, entered the pot and announced his Inter tcon to t.iK the life of Mr. Math- i:ii because of the death of one of ji his braves killed while stealing a horse from the post. Mr. Mathewson floored the chief and gave him a severe beating. Satanta's followers, who had been driven from the house at the point of a revolver, were then forced to carry their defeated chief back to camp. For this humiliating defeat, Satanta swore revenge. Hearing of this and deeming it better to settle the matter once for all, Mr. Mathewson rode out alone on the prairie in search of his enemy. Satanta, learing of the pursuit, and deeming discretion the better part of valor, fled and did not return for more than a year. When he returned he entered into a treaty with Mr. Mathewson, giving him a number of his best horses. From that time on Mr. Mathewson was known in every Indian camp on the plains as Sinpah Ziblah, "The Long-Bearded Dangerous White Man." It was about this time that William Mathewson earned his title of Buffalo Bill by killing buffalo for the settlers and leading hunting parties all over the country In the chase of the buffalo. He Earned Hie Title. On the morning of July 2u. 1.SC4, a band of 1,500 Indians, gaudy in war paint and feathers, surrounded the Mathewson post. There was no delay in the first attack and less in the re-' treat. The new fangled guns in the hands of skilled marksmen dealt out death to the Indians and their horses. For three days, the Indians skulked about the post but they were always forced to retreat quickly when coming within range of the deadly and certain fire of the breach-loading rifles. Long after this fight had become history and peace reigned between the Indians and Mr. Mathewson, the Indian chiefs tried to learn from iilm how many men he had in his post during the fight. Mr. Mathewson smiled and said that he (Continued on Page Thirteen.) LOVE FEAST FOR THE REPUBLICANS Elrick Cole Made Chairman and Earl Ritcher Is Assistant Secretary. 'We Have Come to Our Senses Gladly," Says Mr. Cole. Topeka, Kan., March 21. 'With every county in the state represented by delegates, Kansas, Republicans in their state convention here today spoke and acted harmony.
