DUTCHY, an Apache Indian. He was a member of Geronimo's band, and one of the most vindictire of his race. When the band submitted to General Crook in 1885, Dutchy showed the sincerity of his peacemaking by entering the U. S. cavalry as a scout. He turned the knowledge, skill, and daring that had made him a formidable foe into such use that he soon became famous. He was unerring in the use of the rifle, and claimed that he never missed his mark. He became especially attached to Captain Emmet Crawford, of the 3d cavalry, and attended him in the treacherous attack when Crawford was killed. Dutchy sprang forward, laid his dead master on the ground, and killed not only the Mexican who had shot him, but the commanding officer of the Mexican detachment to which the slayer belonged. He is ranked as one of the most faithful as well as dangerous scouts in the western service.
