A New York dispatch says Colonel
Lawrence Kip is seriously ill at his
home in that city, sty the Spokes
man-Keview. Presumably this is
the army officer who fought under
General Wiight in the campaign
against the hostile Spokane, Palouse
and Cu-ur tl'AU-ne Indian more than
forty years ago. He was Lieutenant
Lawrence Kid then, and afler the
Indians bad been thoroughly chas
Used, he wrote a "Journal of the
Eipedilion Against the Northern
Indians io the Summer of IS.'iS."
In his preface the author com
plained that "it is the tendency in
this countiy to decry the seivices of
the army and of its officers; and yet
most of the latter spend the greater
part of their lives on the frontiers
and in the Indian country. Weeks
at a lime arc passed in scouting
against the treacherous foes, endur
ing every hardship, and daily risking
life itself to open the way for the
pioneer and settler."
From which it appears that the
army had its troubles in as
well as in lSl'D; that "anti-irr perial
lata" were fearful then, as now, of
the growth of a "military despotism,"
and if they had been given their
way, the settlers wouid have lieen
left to fight unaided the cause ft
civilizition against savage foes. In
that event, the city of Spokane would
not have risen, because telegraph ami
tailroad lines could not have been
built ami operated without the aid of
the army, aud the country north ot
Snake river would have remained an
Kaily in hostile tribes north
of the Snake entered into a confed
eracy to prevent white men in the
Willamette valley and the Waila
Walla country from crossing the
Snnke river. That stream, they said,
must be the dividing line, and war
would be waged against white men
who attempted to cross it. Colonel
Steptoe marched out of Walla Walla
in May, 10 dispute that contention,
but bis force encouuttred, near Step
toe butte in Whitman county, a
hostile force which threatened the
destruction of his little command.
The white soldiers fought a stifT
battle, suffered severe losses, and re
treated under cover of night.
This reverse aroused the war de
partment, troops were rallied fum
all parts if the Pacific coast, and a
large force under General Wright
marched through the hostile country,
sink rig and defeating the red war
riors near Medical Lake, pursuing
ihcm into the Spokane val'ey, strik
ing and defeating ihcm again near
the site of the present Sokane army

Spokane valley to Lake Cu-tir

one pretext and another action wa
deferred. During the receut Ohio
campaign many fact concerning
political ileal were exposed, ami
puhlio indignation baa grown to
emihatic that the mayor and the
police department are apparently in
earnest. A week ago the chief of
police issued the following iustrnc
tiou to his men:
"You must suppres the slot ma
chines in Cincinnati. If you fail to
do o I will hold you pcrsoually
responsible and you must answer be
foie the police commissioner for
your dereliciiou. Kverv proprietor
should bo given ample time to com
ply with the law."
The Times-Star was influential in
bringing about the issuance of the
chief order. It published telegram
from mayor of many other cities, in
which tbey told, without exception,
of the manner in which they bad
suppressed the slot machines io their
cities, and had not much tlitl'iculty
in doing so at that.
Now the iniquitous devices are
closed in Spokane, say the Keview,
no one, apart from the immediate
beneficiaries, desire their restoration.
Not a corporal' guard of business
men could be found to elilion for
their operation. The evil here bad
grown to proportions shockinz to the
moral sense of the community aud
alarming to far-seeing business men.
The council and the mayor performed
a most meritorious action when they
suppressed the abomination.
l'EGKADATWX Of MUSIC.
Europe has been given an impres
sion of American taste for music
which is not at all complimentary to
the refinement and culture of the
nation. Dan Godfrey brought a
brass band across the Atlantic and
played to large audiences. On his
return to London with his pockets
stuffed with American geld be moral
ized in this fasLion :
"We played lot of good music,
but what Americans really want is
some catchy tune with a swing. We
would give 'Georgia Camp Meeting,'
or a Kg Time Cake Walk' and tbey
would nearly tear down the dace."
Dan Godfrey spoke the truth about
the audiences to which he catered,
but be failed to catch the true spirit
of the musical tastes of those, who
really understand that art. To the
uncultured ear the cake walks, rag
lime melodic and cheap waltz tunes
arc a pleasure, occasionally because
they arf simple melodies, easily
learned and whistled on every corner.
More often the words of the song
have caught the fancy of the gallery.
These rag-tin:e melodies and tongs
have begun to degrade, and blunt the
sensibilities of the people, and the
theatrical profession to a large de
gree is responsible for that degrada
tion. First the minstrel men learned
that gallery gods shouted with de
light at the tale, to an orch .stral
accompaniment, of the unsiieakable i
woman who dismissed her masculine
com anion because he ran short of
funds. The farce comedians liegan
to take up the evil anil introduce
specialties like "I'm Sorry, Mr. John
sing, but I've Got to Turn You
Down." Even the light opera or
ganizations make feature of word
set to evanescent ditties in which are
described the tribulations of people

a l.iys given a good an education as
tho children of Germany, France,
Pol tiul, Kussia, Italy and Ktwland,
yet the Old World children imbibe
from infancy love for all that Is good
and pure in musical compositions.
Ic those nation there i veneration
for the masters among the humblest
of the population. The ragged boy
on tho street of Koine, know the
oieia and masses of his famous
musical countiy men; the German
child learn to understand and ap
preciate the beauties of IWcthoven,
Liszt and a score of noted masters.
And so it is with other coples on
the continent. Tbey bear little else
from childhood to the grave, are
never tainted srith the flood of trashy
diities which infest America today.
What would benefit tho foiled
States today is a music censor, with
power to expurgate indecent allusions
from songs, to suppress ballads and
songs full of false notes aud Jarring
chord. Not only - would such a
person elevate the morals of com
munities all over the 'and, lul be
would advance bis country in the
estimation of well-bred people all
over the world.
Dan Godfrey' audiences, how
ever, can not have been composed of
the educated musical peoplo of
America. Among that class, wuich
doe not necessarily iuclude only ihe
wealthy and those favored of higher
secular education, there exists the
same refinement for the rrally good
things in music that one finds io
musical audiences of Germany,
France and England. I bis class is
a power for higher education, for
purer thoughts and deeds, for belter
mar-hood and womanhood. It aids
the vouns man and young woman
with musical aspirations, cheers the
cittlc of artist who aspire to make
America a power in realms of music
and song. If it is once properly
recognized by the now uncultured
ear the flashy song and degrading
ditty will soon pass iuto obscurity.
THIS IS WISE.
Thomas Thompson, deputy state
veterinarian, leceives instructions
from Wm, McLean, stato veterinarian,
to enforce the rules recently adopted
by the slate animal commission with
reference to the importation of hogs
from oiher stales. Mr. Thompson is
instructed to Attend to all shipments
passing through Pendleton, ami make
thorough insection of every nnimal.
Shipment of hogs for propagation
come under the proisions of the
rules, while bogs inlcn led to be
killed at once upon arrival at a pack-

quarantine insticclion. The railroad
companies carrying the hogs are re
quired to notify the deputy veter
inarian when shipments pass through

This is wise. The commission is
