    Montana Newspaper Extra: Indians on the Warpath. 5.25" x 14" single sheet "New North-West Extra", Deer Lodge, Montana Territory, August 3, 1877. It contains reports and dispatches concerning the presence of Indians in the vicinity (led by Looking Glass and White Bird), their intentions, a possible threat to settlers in Bitter Root, the strength of troops to combat the threat, the Governor's Proclamation and the War Department's refusal to send additional troops, deferring to General Sheridan. One report, not confirmed, claims that Indians killed "six men on Wood River". The Nez Perce Indians are massed in the region, but "Their numbers indicate they can be met and whipped on any route they undertake to pass through this country, but there seems an indisposition in exposed localities to first open the fight on them." Normal folds, one 1.5" tear near top, a few teensy holes.
