INDIANS VS. THE UNION PACIFIC
"A band of Indians, ten or twelve in number, attacked one of Shoemaker, Miller & Co. trains, seventeen miles west of Coyote [in present northern Gove county], at about noon today, and burned three freight cars on a side track, tore down the telegraph poles, and destroyed a portion of the track. They also attempted to throw a construction train from the track, but failed. A number of other Indians were seen at some distance off, but how many was not known." From the Marysville Enterprise, May 16, 1868
