Change of Commander In the Co
Brigadier General O. O. How.
ard, who was prominently identified
with ihe Freedmen's Bureau estab
lished during the war of the re
bellion, arrived here last evening,
en route to Portland, Oregon, the
headquarters of the Department of
the Columbia. Gen. Howard re
lieves Rrevet Rrigadier General
Jefferson C. Davis, Colonel of the
Twcnty-third Infantry, who has
been ordered to his regiment in the
Department ot the Platte. Gen.
Davis superseded Gen. Gillem,
Colonel of the First Cavalry, as
commander of the expedition against
the Modoc Indians, a few days after
the massacre of April 26, 1873, and
brought the war to a speedy and
eminently satisfactory termination
in about one month. The Depart,
ment at Washington paid General
Davis the compliment of allowing
him to use his brevet title officially,
and at the close ot the Indian diffi
culties assigned him to the com-,
maed of the Department of the
Columbia. Thus were his services
recognized by the Government,
The command of the Columbia De
partment, at the time ot its assump
tion by General Davis, was oue of
the most important in the gift of
the Government on account of the
unsettled condition of the Indians,
Rut at the present time that depart
ment is hardly heard ot. The De
partraents ofthe Platte and Arizona
are those upon which public inter-
est centers just now. lo the un
initiated it seems somewhat singular
that the Department should relieve
General Davis from the command
of the Columbia Department, but
the tacts ot the ease are not generally
understood. General Davis is the
junior Colouel commanding the Do-.
partment., and, according to the
regulations, when a Brigadier Gen-.
oral came into active service it was
necessary for the junior Department
commander to retire. Hence the
change of General Davis. On the
whi le, however, General Davis has.
cauce for congratulation. The head-,
quarters of the Twenty-third In-.
itry are at Fort D. A. Russell,
From this point scouting expedi
tions start in operating against the
Sioux. General Davis will find
himself in the center of active scenes.
He will have numerous opportuni
ties for the display of bis executive
abilities and dauntless bravery, and
no doubt he wil make tro4i points,
for hii alrea-ly creditable ivcord as
an Indian fighter. General Davis
wil' leave Portland tor his new post,
of duty upon the arrival of Geuera
