THE YAQUINA INDIAN TROUBLES.
The Two "Bens." In the Characters of
Mrs. Kistler's Statement of California
i : The following communication comes
to ns from Elk City, under date Janu
ary 28, 1873 :
Editos Democeat : "
i Permit me through . the columns of
your paper to lay before the people a
few. facts in regard to the recent Indian
troubles on Yaquina Bay , It is unne
cessary to say that the mysterious danc
ing, and strange conduct, of the Indi
ans, followed by the burning of EN.
Sawtelle's house," caused great alarm
among the settlers. ' I shall, therefore,
pak uore- paiticolarly of the efforts
made, by our citizens to have the mat
ter investigated "By the proper authori
ties. 'The people finding it impossible to
discover the intent of the Indians, or
...... - r
the canse of their strange conduct, ap-
pealed to the State or Federal authori
ties, with what4 effect the secjuel will
show. The United States officers ame,
and I propose to follow; them, in the
discharge of their duties, and show the
people how obedient they are to the
law and their duty. ". In the first place,
I am informed that they armed them
selves, at Corvallis, with five .bottles of
whisky and two boxes of cigars, and
started for the seat of war. But, oh
account of lightning whisky, a slow
team and eagerness for" the fray, or a
low dashboard the world may possi
bly never know which one' of ' these
gentlemen fell astride the buggy pole,
between the' horses, lodging early in
the day. The next morning, "however,
they were ready for duty, and proceed
ed on their way rejoicing... But, instead
of going to where the trouble was, and
there making: strict inquiry into the
matter, that they might hear the facts,
in the case,, they went direct to the Si
letz, and got the Indian story, and then
to Newport, where they could replenish
their whisky. bottles," arid thence, to the
seat of war, to tell the peoplo that the
affair was all a hoax, and that the Indi
ans said they did "hot : burn1 Sawtelle's
house, and they did not think the Indi
ans " would lie about it ! The Super
intendent expressed a wish to" see Mrs.
Kistler about it, and her husband pro
posed to bring her up to Elk City ; but
Mr. Odeneal said he would save her
that inconvenience,, by calling' at her
house. "This, however, he failed to do.
Did Mr. Odeneal come, over to ascertain
facts in regard to the cause of the late
alarm; or to tell the Indians that it was
all right for them, whenever any white
man did not, submit to their dictation,
to burn his house, and then say : " We
did not do it t " " We leave his conduct
in the premises to answer the query. If
Mr. Odeneal had desired to know the
conversation that occurred between the
Indian California Jack and Mrs. Kist
ler,, -why did he not .call on Mrs. K.,
as he agreed to do ? Let that gentle
man answer, r -A ' OpsEBYEB,
. '. MR8. KISTLEB'S STATEMENT.
' Following is. the - conversation be
tween Mrs.: Kistler and California Jack,
in relation to the . threatened outbreak
on Yaquina Bay, just as jt (occurred, as
nearly as it can be remembered by that
lady. : We give it, as . the lady gives it
to us, in the form of a dialogue, : that
our readers may see the full . scope of
the conversation: .., . . . " , .
Jack.- I suppose you would like to
know why I did not come on to work
this morning I,.7. r, ,,., ... , : .....
Mrs. Kisder Yes ; I would like to
know. As the weather is- good, you
ought to have been to work early;?
Jack--I am very sick at heart.
Mrs.6 IL Why so? What ja the
matter? " ; ; ' ; . 1 - '
Jack I have not slept any all night
I have been talking to the Indians all
night They wanted to break jnto one
house and steal lots of things, and get
one one man and cockshet (hnrt or beat)
hun. ....... . , ;.; U:"'r
; Mrs. K. Who is it that wants to do
this ? " : ' . r
i Jack MytiUicufn(peofle or friends)
i Mrs. K. Who is the man they want
tokfflf.V.- : :' r':'
I Jack I dare not tell, or they will
kill me. . - ... ;
, Mrs. K I would like to know who
it is they wauled to kill last niht.,
1 Jack Do you think the white folks
would protect me, if I made a revela-
tion 1 ; ..: '. ; " '
Mrs K Certainly thev would, if
you told on the Indians, and helped the
whites,- ;' :' l-'y .. ly- . .-
Jack If I knew that to a certainty,
I would tell. , . . V..-''r-;r:... .
Mrs. K. Who is it ? Is it Sawtelle
Jack Yes; but don't let the Indi
ans know I have told, or they will kill
me. '.. , ;. -, . - '
Mrs. K, Why do they want to in
jure Sawtelle i . : . -1
Jack Because they are all mad at
him. They wanted to go last night,
but I would not give " my consent I
told them that I did not want the whites
to be mad with me. : I wanted -to "work
for my flour, meat, sugar; and coffee; aud
I wanted to work all spring and sum
mer, for Kistler,; cutting wood for the
steamboat, and in the fall I would have
lots of; provisions and mone'.-. But
they said what is", the odds ? . It will
not be long until all the whites will be
mad at us, anyhow, and we might just
as well commence now. ; I told them to
wait until Harney come, and if he said
go ahead, I wonld have no more to say.
But they wanted to know why 1 would
not give my consent, and repeated the
question a .number of ; times " kata
mika tealce tickey nesika clatwa mamook
cockshet yaka ? " (why don't you want
us to go and injure him 1) . I told them,
as before, I wanted to work and earn
my grub, and if they wonld go to work
they could have plenty, too.. But they
said no ; one more night, and all weuld
be mad. -Nika tcawa. mika, close nan

Mrs. Kistler is prepared to qualify to
the occurrence of the above statement,
whenever caIled"upon by Mr. Qdeneal,
or anybody else, to. do so.
I ; The Lava Beds.
Jesse , A.pplegats writing to the
Bulletin, thus graphically describes the
lava, beds in the Modoc country : The
stronghold of the Modoe Indians :s a
pedregal " of the most extensive and
elaborate description ; it occupies, with
but few intervals, nearly. 100 square
miles. If you can imagine a smooth',
solid sheet of granite, ten miles square,
and 500 feet thick, ' covering resistless
mines of gunpowder, scattered at irreg
ular intervals under it ; that these mines
are exploded simultaneously, lend
ing the whole .field into rectangular
masses, from' the size of 'a match-box
to that of a church, heaping' these
masses h;gh in some places, and leaving
deep chasm in others. Following the
explosion, the whole' thing is placed in
one of Vulcan's ' crucibles and heated
up to a point, when the whole begins
to . fuse and run together, and then suf
fered to cool. The roughness of the
remains as the explosion left it, while
all below is honey -combed by the
cracks and creviees caused by the eool
ing of the melted rock. : : An Indian
can, from the top' of one of these stone
pyramids, shoot a man without exposing
even so much as an inch square of him
self. He can, without undue haste, load
and shoot a common muzzle-loading
rifle ten times before a man can scramble
over the rocks and chasms between the
slain and the slayer. If, at this terrible
expense of life, a force dislodges bun
from cover, he has only to drop into and
follow some subterranean passage with
which he is : familiar, to - gain another
ambush from' whence it will cost ten
more' lives to dislodge him; and so on
ad infinitum. . i , .; . : :. . vu V
The Danbury News gives an account
of the vicissitudes of life as experienced
by a young man in that place. He
went to see a young- lady, previously
just having been U) ah oyster supper.
As he neared the house he saw her father
standing on the steps and hailed him
'JU.elI6, old- 'Jfatpole. -Where' isn my
lovely gazelle ? j Where is my love now
dreamin IT .The father looked at him,
thinking- i that he wanted something,
placed his hand sadly upon his shoulder,
turned him round, and filled the space
