It is safe to say that The Black Range newspaper did not like General Crook (photo left), to date it has never published anything positive about him, and in this issue they said more.  Crook was not in the “eliminate the Indians camp” - as was The Black Range newspaper editor.

A fuller and more accurate account of Crook and the “Indian Wars” can be found in “On the Border With Crook” by John G. Bourke.
