LAND QUARREL IS BLAMED
Stabbing Victim's Brother Joins in
Plea That White People Believe
Their Race Is Xot Bloodthirsty
and Record of Crime Cited.
KLAMATH FALLS, Or, Aug. 2.
(To the Editor.) We, whose names are
signed to this paper, are Klamath In
dians. We have Just witnessed an ex
amination before Justice Gowen which
has resulted in binding Joseph Brown,
an Umpqua Molalla Indian, over to the
Federal Court in Portland for stabbing
to death our fellow tribesman, Eugene
The cause of this homicide was a
quarrel over the right of way through
the said Joseph Brown's allotment and
was not the result of intoxicating
liquor, which has been the cause of
several homicides during the past few
We know that under the law, which
we all wish to see enforced, we can
say nothing that would influence pub
lic opinion, for this case must come
to trial and be decided on the evidence
then produced, but we wish to let the
people know what our attitude is in
such matters, and that we are not a
people that are murderous In charac
ter, but that our desire is to obey the
law and live as becomes honorable
American people, loving peace and
quiet, and who wish to be respected
as the loyal subjects of a Government
we are proud to honor and obey.
Early Attention to Troubles Asked.
In this case we do not wish to re
reflect on anyone, nor assert that
the authorities should have acted
promptly in settling this question of
the right of way, if the case had been
presented to them before this occur
rence, but when there are reasons for
difference in such cases they should
be promptly reported for adjustment to
the superintendent, and he should, of
course, act with promptness, so as to
prevent as far as possible troubles that
may result seriously between individ
uals. One signer of this paper Is a brother
of the man lately killed. Their father.
Isaao Nekobux, was a law-abiding man
and a Christian one who taught his
children to respect the law and never
to resort to the old bloody methods of
settling disputes that were common in
the days before the white man's law
and the Christian religion became our
This signer, Simon Isaacs, now feels
no spirit of revenge against the man
who took his brother's life, and his
only wish is to see the true facts
brought forth in the trial and the law
Bloodtblrstlness Is Denied.
We believe the record will show that
we are not a bloody people. The great
treaty which was made In October,
1S64. which gave us the Klamath Res
ervation as our heritage, bound us to
the observance of the vhite man's law.
Since then about 12 homicides have oc
curred on the reservation. Is this a
bad record for more than 1000 people
for more than 61 years? Half of these
murders were Indirectly due to the in
fluence of alcoholic drinks, something
which was introduced Into the country
by white people, along with the great
advantages they brought to the red
Two of the homicides were by a mad
man: one the result of Indian super
stition; two premeditated assassina
tions, and one the killing or an Indian
by an angry white man who was graz
ing stock on Indian land and who re
sented the Indian's defense of his own
property. Five men who were guilty
of these murders were not by blood
Klamath Indians. s
In conclusion, we only wish to say
to the white people and to our own
people as well. let us live in peace and
observe the law; treat all men hon
estly; be slow to anger, but quick to do

SOAP AND OINTMENT
"About ten years ago my husband had a
breaking out on his arms and hand.
It would itch and burn so badly
that he would scratch it
and that would cause It
to spread, and it was
not long before it had
spread all over his chest
and arms and neck. Be
could not sleep nights for
the discomfort of It.
"I found my daughter had
the same trouble breaking
out on the corner of her mouth. I
saw Cuticura Soap and Ointment adver

time her face was well. My husband
then tried the Cuticura Soap and Olnt- ,
