"A party of Osage Indians from the Indian Territory arrived here Tuesday evenng from Washington. Eleven persons composed the delegation, consisting of Striking Axe, Alvin Wood. Ne-kah-ke-pah-nah, Tall Chief, Ne-kah-ko-lab, Saucy Chief, James Bigheart; Paul Aiden, interpreter; E.M.Matthews, clerk; R.E. Bird, agent and guide. They have children here whom they stopped to visit on their way home. Their business in Washington was to adjust the title of certain lands bought by them from the Cherokees, who can convey the special title reposed in them by the government consenting to join in a free simple conveyance. They were an intelligent looking lot of Indians. - 1891 Sentinel."
