except on the most direct and feasible
route bv which it can make a junction

reauired by ' law. The Central road
wants to deflect the route to Klamath

Young has resigned the Presidencies of

affairs in order to go to Arizona, with

THE , MODOC ASSASSINATION." '
The killing of -Gen. Canby and Rev.
Eleazer Thomas, of the Peace Cominis
sion, by Captain Jack and his band, is
the all-absorbing topic, and has aroused
a feeling of deepest indignation from
one end of the country " to the other.
Meetings of indignation and condolence
have been held ; extermination is de
manded on all sides;' military com'
manders have ordered a vigorous move'
ment against the Modocs, proclaiming
that "nothing short of their prompt
and sure destruction wilt satisfy the de
mands of justice or the expectations of
the Government." The peace-loving
President, who so lately was deterinin
ed to make peace with these red devils
" no matter on what terms," has, the
telegraph informs us, " unreservedly
expressed his sanction of the severest
measures now necessary to properly
punish the Modocs, and his views on
the subject have been fully stated to
the War Department." When we read
the words of Mr. Dyar, uttered but a
short tjme before the , massacre of the
Commission, but after the cold-blooded
and unprovoked murder of the settlers
on Lost river, we can but look upon the
whole movement with execration.
letter written from the Peace Cominis
sion headquarters, a few days before
the assassination, by J. M. Sutton, rep
resents Mr. Dyar as saying : It makes
no difference what the people of Ore
gon say or do ; the Government is de
-termined that peace shall be made, and
peace will be made, no matter on what
terms!" Dr. TbomaPvi who was mur
dered, was said to have strong sympa
thies for the ppor,down-trod,deo, Mo
docs," and would accept the testimony
of a "Digger Indian, rather than that
of the most respected citizen of Oregon."
He felt, and so expressed himself,' that
the Modocs, if not justifiable, were at
least excusable for their outbreak. -The
Commission, when Captain Jack sent
word that he was out of tobacco, issued
a requisition, and forwarded all in the
sutler's quarters, the soldiers being com
pelled to do without.. Indians repeat
edly rode into the Commissioners' camp
mounted upon fine horses which they
boasted of having stolen from Boddy
and Brotherton, whom they murdered,
and whose ' widows and orphans are
even now in' want ! Blankets were fur
nished the . Indians, when the poor sol
dier was suffering with a single one.
Mr. Sutton says scarcely a day passed,
while he remained in the camp, that one
or more of these Modoc braves'" were
not feasted by the Peace Commission.
Here was a party of men, appointed
and seconded by the Administration,
insisting upon peace, at any price, after
seventeen innocent settlers had been
ruthlessly slaughtered. Their murder
could be overlooked ; but now, how
changed! Gen. Canby and the Peace
Commission have fallen victims to an
overweening confidence in Meacham's
" honorable man." The war must go
on: no peace; no quarter. While we
deeply deplore the loss of a gallant com
mander and Christian gentleman, and
sympathize with those whose grief is
so poignant, we cannot but-feel that
the lives of those murdered pioneers
were as sweet to them, as valuable in
the sight of God, and as worthy sub
jects of redress as if their possessors had
been kings, generals, or holy men of
God, instead of honest tillers of the
soil, t We opposed the appointment of
a Peace Commission from the beginning,
and its awful and tragic end has shown
its futility, and the correctness of the po
sition assumed by the majority of the
Oregon press. Yes, in God's name, let
the war go .on, and may another con
ference not be held, except it be by the
light of the burning wigwam of the last
murdering Modoc " tbat . mocks , the

A battle with the Modocs -all day
yesterday.-.Little loss to the troops,
who stood their ground, with their lines
entirely surrounding the Indians. The
battle was ' renewed to-day, the troops
steadily working in upon Captain Jack.
On Tuesday night a severe battle
was fought, the mortars opening at 5:30
p. m., and completely sweeping the
lava beds. Cols. Mason and Green,
working from opposite sides of the lava
beds, formed a junction between the
mouth of the cave and Tule Lake, en
tirely cutting the Indians off from water.
Five white men are killed, and 10 re
ported wounded. A number of Indians
were killed and wounded.-

The Indians made a desperate at
tempt, on the morning ot the 16th,' to
break through our lines to the water.
At one time, a cross fire compelled Col.
Miller's men to fall back ; but Aliller
fortified himself and held his position
until the mortars opened. He lost two j
men,' and dne wounded. At 7:45 Col.
Mason, signaled : " Modocs on the rear
and right flank, trying to get out." Ma
son's" men advancing, the Indians were
seen on the bluff. Heavy firing at 8
o'clock on Col. Green's line. A strong
effort was made to unite Mason's left
and Green's right. At 9 Green's whole
line was moving. At 9:45 Mason sig
ualed : "Modocs leaving --the lava
beds," and cavalry were ordered to"
pursue them. At 11:30 all was quiet,
and half an hour later heavy firing was
heard in the Modoc stronghold. At
o'clock the Warm Spring Indians re
ported three more Modocs lulled. It is
the intention to keep them cut off from
water. The Indian allies fight well. -It
is almost impossible to see an Indian
