Gage County Nebraska Biographical 346

 

William Mahloch has proved himself the possessor of a large amount of that excellent quality of

manhood and self-reliance, which, untied with perseverance and industry, had enabled him to become

one of the useful young farmer of Blakely Township, in which he owns a fine farm of 240 acres on

section 5. When he started out in life he was comparatively poor, and what he now owns had been

obtained by his own manly efforts, he being indebted to no man for the help of so much as a penny.

He was born in Sheboygan County Wis., on the 14th of December 1852, and is a son of Phillip and

Sophia (Vest) Mahloch. Who had come to the United Stated from one of the Rhine Provinces in Germany

after their marriage. The mother died in 1854 in Wisconsin, but the father is still living in that

state and has reached the age of seventy-two years. The parents were Lutherans in their religious

belief.

 

Our subject was twenty years old when be began working for himself, and first hired out as a farm

laborer in his native State, then he went to Henry Co Ill., where he worked for two years, after

which, when he was twenty-three years old, he came to Nebraska. He was married in the township on

June 28th 1880, to Miss Lizzie Riddle, who was born in Maryland in 1862. Her father was a German

farmer who had come to the United States and settled in Maryland. The mother died in that State,

and the father afterward married again and came to Nebraska, now making his home on a farm in

Jefferson County. Mrs. Mahloch was sixteen years old when she came with her father to the great

undeveloped West, and a little later was married here.

 

Our subject and his wife have had six children in their family, one whom , named Minnie died when

she was eleven months old, and the remaining four children bear the names of Louis, Hannah, Peter

and Carrie; an infant is unnamed. Mr. Mahloch purchased his fist land her in 1879, when he secured

160 acres, after which he added eighty acres to it from a adjoining farm, and he now has one of the

very good farms of this county. The land was wild and unbroken prairie when it came into his hands,

and all of its improvements are due to his own industry, it being now in a condition to produce fie

crops of grain. Our subject also gives considerable attention to the raising of stock of a superior

grade. He was one of the first settlers in this neighborhood, and has been a resident of the county

since 1875. He and his wife are highly esteemed members of the German Lutheran Church, and rank well

among the best families of the township. Mr. Mahloch affiliated with the Republican party in politics,

and is a first-class, honorable man.

A personal letter from William E. Walton, who established a trading post at Genoa in 1870, states

he sold the business to Stacy Matlock in 1873 and was appointed to take a census of the Pawnees

and found there were 2,400 of them. Walton's letter also says Nels Skooge had worked for him in

his business and when pay day came, Skooge supposed he would get all his wages. Walton, however,

declared, "Any man who worked for me must live on 90-cent dollars." Skooge disliked the idea at

first, but by following that practice consistently, he accumulated a fortune. In November, 1874,

approximately two thirds of the Pawnees left for their new reservation in the Indian Territory,

and the remainder of the tribe joined them in 1875. The Indians were permitted to stay for

nineteen years in their Nebraska reservation, according to the treaty.

The ceremony of Painting the Buffalo Skull is held every spring by the Chaui Band of Pawnee and is

in charge of Mr. Stacy Matlock, a prominent member of that band.  The closing events of the ceremony

are the Buffalo and Lance dances, which were witnessed by the writer through the courtesy of Mr.

Matlock, no other white personbeing present. The ceremony and dances were held in a large earth lodge,

several miles south of the town of Pawnee. The opening of the lodge was toward the east.  At some

distance was a framework, probably that of a sweat lodge. Only members of the Buffalo Society were

admitted to the painting of the skull, but during the Buffalo dance the skull painted a few days

previously, lay on a folded blanket in front of the "altar" which was opposite the entrance. This

occasion and the Lance dance held a few days later afforded exceptional opportunities to listen to

Pawnee songs, but the semidarkness of the lodge and the solemnity of the occasion precluded the

taking of notes upon either the music or the details of the ceremonial dances.

SIOUX AND PAWNEES SIGN PEACE TREATY
        ___________________

Western Indians Make Terms of Their Own Accord After Centuries
        ___________________  

Trenton, Nebraska, Sept. 6 - The Sioux Indians of South Dakota, and the Pawnee tribe of Oklahoma,

signed a peace treaty here last week which settled a warfare which has existed between them for

centuries and centuries. For the first time in the traditions of the tribes they are at peace with

each other. The peace council was held in Massacre Canyon, where, in 1873, the two tribes fought a

great battle which ended in the almost annihilation of the Pawnees, and made them wanderers until

they settled on a reservation in Oklahoma, where they have since lived.

The meeting of the two tribes was not a staged affair worked up by white men. It was arranged by

the Indians themselves. More than 100 prominent Pawnees came up from Oklahoma and as many Sioux

came down from South Dakota. Some of the representatives of both tribes were survivors of the

great battle.

Chiefs Bring Women A Long
     ___________

Leading the Pawnees at the peace meeting were Walking Sun, Ruling His Son, Leading Fox, John Haymound,

STACY MEDLOCK, Julius Caesar, Riding In, and St. Elmo Jim. For the Sioux, there were Frank Goings,

White Eyes, Long Dog, Flys Above, and Spotted Weasel. Added to the Sioux delegation and showing that

the feminist movement is gaining, even among the Indians, were Mrs. Frank Goings and Mrs. Weasel.

In an earlier day the Pawnees occupied central Nebraska and the Sioux were north in the Dakotas.

The Sioux were the "cut-throats" of the Indians. They were always at war with every other tribe.

On the other hand, the Pawnees were peaceful but they were the best fighters on the plains whenever

they went to war. Incidentally, the Pawnees were the enigma of naturalists. Their language, habits

and homes differed from those of all other Indians in the Americas.

Pawnees Last To Smoke Peace Pipe
       _______________

In 1873, the Pawnees went on their annual buffalo hunt. The Sioux came down and ambushed them and

almost wiped them off the face of the earth. After the massacre, the few remaining Pawnees fled

southward, absolutely deserting the country in which they had lived for so many centuries. When

Coronado came up from Mexico in 1541, he found Pawnees living in well built houses and towns along

the Platte and Loop rivers. The government placed the remnant of their tribe on a reservation in

Oklahoma.

Though other tribes signed peace treaties years ago, the Pawnee steadily refused to make peace

with their ancient enemies until last week. At the meeting here they admitted that the smoking

of the peace pipe with the Sioux was a difficult thing for them after the massacre in which many

of their tribe were killed.

Boy, 8, Hid Under Meat Pile
        _________

Riding In told of the manner in which he had escaped the massacre. He was then a boy of eight. He said

he had hidden under a pile of buffalo meat until after the Sioux had departed, when he crawled out,

caught a stray pony and followed the remnant of the tribe 250 miles before overtaking them.

Ruling His Son told the peace meeting he had fought in the battle and that his wife and 2 children

were killed in the battle. He is 105 years old now. He had never taken another wife. He said he had

always been very bitter against the Sioux but he was now ready to make peace with them. He formally

shook hands with Chief Flies Above of the Sioux.

The final act of the peace making ceremony was a ceremonial pow-wow dinner to which the Sioux invited

the Pawnees. Ordinarily this dinner would consist of beef ribs roasted over coals but this time

potatoes and bread and other foods were added.

Oil Makes Pawnees Rich
     _________

When the few remaining Pawnees fled south, they were as poor as church mice. The Sioux on their

return trip to their own country were loaded down with the property captured from the Pawnees.

That which could not be carried was burned. When the Pawnee reached Oklahoma they were paupers.
