Additional Details:
Wah-Hoo-let (Yelm Jim) lived for many years my nearby neighbor. He fought fearlessly in the Indian war of 1855-6. and went down to defeat under the leadership of Leschi. He submitted, but never relented. I always felt it was better to look him in the eye like I would a threatening watch dog. He, with four companions, at the breakup left Leschi, killed tow settlers a few miles from Olympia, spread consternation throughout the land, and changed the whole plan of Governor ?Stevens campaign; afterwards arrested, tried and sentenced for murder, but pardoned at midnight of day set for execution. His countenance, position and surroundings illustrates his character.
