    More Information:

    A contemporary New York Tribune article concerning the event wrote in part: "Of noise there was a plenty. Warwhoops [sic] and the shrill of the cowman of on a rampage with his four months' pay in his belt floated off into the "Great White Way," while Mr. Hornaday pleaded in vain for quiet. Finally, when everyone was exhausted...Mr. Hornaday told of the passing of the oldtime [sic] West: "There isn't any more West...the Indians are good and you can't possibly stir up a fight."
