five years, and fully and with concise

"Great Words," but Too Late.
The Bulletin sterreotypes the following
words, uttered by President Grant, on
the 18th : " The Modocs must be ex
terminated, not as a passionate revenge
for their treacherous murders, but as an
act of justice, as well as of .protection
to peaceful settlers in that part of the
conntrv." 1 f this Dolicv . had been
- adopted three months ago, many a pre
cious life would have been saved.

THE XlCEJfSE QUESTION! ;
As this is the subject that is now agi
tating the people oi Corvallis, we pro
pose tJ give: our views, fearlessly, and
at the risk of becoming" a target for
the harmless, though ' bitter thrusts of
the professedly religious and total absti
nence Javelins, 7 There is a project on
foot to abolish licenses for the sale of
spirituous liquors. If the' matter of
prohibition had not repeatedly been
shown a- moral, physical and ' political
impossibility, we would not hesitate to
give our aid toward the consummation
of such a project. - But, as far as mor
ality is concerned, the withdrawal of
licenses from the saloons, while other
establishments in the city are allowed
to sell, as now, without license, will not,
in our opinion, effect one jot or tittle of
improvement. Those who, from habit
or inclination, now frequent saloons tor
the purpose of drinking, will have the
same facilities for obtaining liquor as
they now possess. No less whisky will
be drank, and experience teaches that
more drunkenness will be occasioned by
the ''quirt" system. - The morals of
our city will not ho made one whit bet
ter, by the suppression of. retail traffic,
while our: City Treasury will, we fear,
seriously feel the depletion . caused by
the withdrawal of $1,000 to $1,200 per
annum from its coffers. ' Here our tem
perance friends will exclaim : "Would
you tolerate vice, in order to fill the
tresury with gold ? " No ; but in ethics
there are " imperfect rights " as well as
perfect ones, and the' ' same law which
gives the gunsmith the right to manu
facture deadly weapons j the druggist,
to compound poisons ; and the oilman,
to manufacture nitro-glycerine,". under
certain leBtrictions, permits the distiller
to convert his grain and fruit into bev
erages, and expose them for sale. He
has no right to' force one to buy, but the
law cf the land gives him the right to
offer them Tor sale, after paying certain
taxes. The city authorities can pro
hibit the vending of intoxicating drinks
within certain prescribed limits ; but
will this stop drinking ? Can they say
to A or B, ' you shall drink no more,"
or take any action that will lessen the
quaatity drank, while the law of Con
gress gives C the light to sell, and that
of God to A and B the right to buy and
drink', if they so desire ? Most assur
edly not. Then what" advantages will
arise from a withdrawal of city licenses?
Here they are : Some half dozen bus
iness stands on Main" street will be
closed, and their owners deprived of
their rentals ; the City Treasury will be
robbed of $1,200 revenue ; streets and
siaewaiKs win go unimproved ; a gen
eral stagnation of business in the cor
poration will follow, and places of re
sort, for drinking, gaming and amuse
ment will be erected on the confines of
the town, where the restraint of public
gaze "will be unfelt, and excesses in
dulged in that never would occur on our
public thoroughfares. '. Let temper
ance shriekers " howl at us, as they
have and will, with their intemperate
utterances ; we propose to look ait the
subject in its true light, and. treat' it
from a logical standpoint. No such op
probrious epithets as " whisky organ,'
flung at us by a canting hypocrite, whose
zeal is equaled only by his lack oi hon
or and brains, shall deter us from ex
pressing our views upon the matter at
isstre.' We are no apologist for drunk
enness, and would gladly witness every
drop of alcoholic stimulants , banished
from the land. But, let us be iust.- If
we would restrain the traffic, let us not
stop at the saloons; but go into the
drug, grocery and dry goods houses,
where, we are informed by gentlemen
who- stand ready to substantiate the
fact by scores of affidavits, whisky is
daily sold in less quantities than one
quart, and. compel them to pay license.
There is no justice in this specious war
fare against one or two individuals who
happen to be poor. Let us treat ' all
alike. We heard a member of the com
mitee which reported to the Council
last Friday night, while- trying to sell a
certain saloon keeper some casks of
whislty, whieb the saloon man refused
to buy on account of the unsettled state
of the license "question", say that, with
the license at $600 or $1,000, he thought
one respectable saloon might, be made
profitable. Then is it the object not to
stop the traffic, but to elevate the busi
ness, and freeze out the small fry ? If
it be necessary to have one retail saloon
in Corvallis, let the license be put at a
reasonable figure, and let those who see
fit engage in the traffic, and the city au
thorities se to it that . every man who
sells liquor in less quantities than one
quart, be forced, to pay the' regular re
tail license. As this . matter will come
squarely before the people at the next
city election, we devoted tbis much of
our. space to present it correctly.
W. B. Carter, the ostensible editor of
the Gazette, last week descended to the
lowest type of newspaper pettifogging
in order to make capital against us, by
wilfully misquoting ' and torturing an
article which appeared iu .bur issue of
the 12th. The matter is scarcely worth
a passing notice, as the items. in the Ga
zette are most puerile effusions, utterly
devoid of logic, reason, sense, good Eng
lish, or correct orthography. But as he
drags gentlemen before the public, we
deem a Bimple explanation' necessary.
We said the " white-robed minister of
God descended from, the " pulpit, and
took a position on the floor of a Church,
saying to bis auditors that be would
come down and talk to- them on the
level of a. citizen, and " expressing a
wish that the day was other than the
Sabbath, and the place other than the
house of God, that he might " speak
with more freedom. Here is the extent
of our " cowardly and malicious attack
on Rev. Joseph Emery and Dr. John
Boswell,",as our'Bickly cotemporary is
pleased to denominate it.. We made the
statement on the autb&rity of a gentle
man who was present, aud whose ver
acity we have no reason to doubt. If
it were not true, why did not our co
temporary deny it 1 ', If it were " cow
ardly," we repeat it, . and respectfully
ask Rev. Joseph Emery or Dr. John
Boswell if we have been misinformed.
We say again, that it is a sad commen
tary on the holy office of the ministry,
when he who wears ecclesiastical robes
admits that he is full of a sentiment that
he cannot preach with freedom in the
building dedicated to the worship of his
Maker, on the " Sabbath Day." Our
Bible tells us that we shall be held ac
countable for every idle word. If the
minister felt that he was right, why
need he fear to preach his convictions
from the. very sanctuary of the Most
High 1 - Good works and good words
are always " acceptable in the sight of
the Lord," and should be proclaimed
not only iu the sacred sanctuary, but
from every house-top through the land,
The Gazette calls us an " infidel." To
those who have known us for any length
of time this charge will come and go
as an idle wind. Our belief in the Di
vinity of God and . His Son, Jesus
Christ, and in the religion of the New
Testament is as firm and abiding1 as the
" Rock of ages.". When thus assailed,
we gather consolation from the reflection
that the. Prophets were toned, the
Apostles persecuted, and the Son of
Man crucified, on account of their be
lief,, and can complacently " smile at
satan's rage." The several writers for
the Gaz eite, last week, were certainly
hard up for language, as, in every point
they wished to make, they copied the
words of the Democrat, and then made
painfully abortive attempts to torture
them into an application to their own
ideas. .Not one evinced any extended
acquaintance with either Webster, Blair
or .Bullion, and the way they crucify
the Holy Scriptures is enough to cause
bt. Peter a bones to come out or their
grave. Our friends' knowledge of
Latin is so limited that they all use a
quotation of ours, without the slightest
regard to its applicability. One of them
makes us use the quotation ."Mortuo
leoni eflepor.es insultant" in regard to
the two ministers, when no contortion
of the English language will warrant
such an application. . . It the writer can
read his own vernacular, he will find
that John Murray is the " lion," and
W. B. Carter the insignificant " hare.
Couldn't Think of It. "Observ
er," in the Gazette, wants us to recant
what we said in one case, condemn what
was done by some one iu another case,
or be ''branded as a tool id tbe hands
of evil men, to do their dirty work;
Now, we don't know who " Observer "
is, and, like Josh Billings, we're darned
if we care. But, with all due deference
to the individual, we can't do either of
those things he proposes. We : won'
recant,- -and - we -won't be branded
That's flat." Let him - bring out those

FROI THE RTiODOG i WAR!
THE ESDIASS STILL AT LARGE 1
THE SETTLERS BECOMING ALAR" CO I
Since the publication of our extra of
Monday, but little of importance has
Iranspired. - Some little skirmishing in
the vicinity of the lava beds has 'been
bad. Eighteen Indians are reported
killed. A pack train and a courier were
fired on, on the - 21st, when leaving the
lava beds, but " the Indians were soon
driven off. ' The Indians are bold and
defiant. ' These are doubtless but small
bands, whom Captain Jack has left be
hind to engage the attention of the
troops while he and his band escape to
a more favorable locality. Last night's
mail brought nothing trom the Modoc
country, and it is painfully evident that
the Indians have given- the soldiers the
slip. . Settlers along the Treka road,
and throughout Southern and South
eastern Oregon are becoming seriously
alarmed.' Indians along. Klamath creek
and . Scott a V alley are dancing war
dances, and beeominjr insolent. ;
- MORE SPECKS OF WAR!
Dispatches received last night state
that the Indians in the vicinity of .Ya
kima City, W. T., had run off a band
of cattle. It is reported that they had
murdered Miller,- the owner of the cat
tle, near Cock's Ferry. Families are
moving into that town, from "Klikital
Valley, feariug an outbreak.
The Indians on Umatilla agd binicoe
Reservations are sullen, insolent and de
fiant, and trouble is apprehended.
All the savages living around Uamp
Harney have disappeared, and it is sup

THE LQUISANA TROUBLE.
Details from the Grant Parish riot
show that the troubles arose but of the
destruction of ' parish officers. The
Lynch " Returning Board ignored all
officers elected by the parish, and Gov,
Kellogg filled the places with his ap
pomtees. These tailed to quality, and
the Governor then ordered the parties
originally elected to assume omce. A
large force- of negroes instigated, it is
said, by Several white men', members of
the lvelloggLegislature armed them
selves and took possession of the Court
house at Colfax. They erected barri
cades, from which they issued, plunder
ing plantations, stopping steamboats for
supply ot provisions, etc. Meantime
the whites of the parish had begun to
gather at Colfax to consider what to do.
They were joined by the whites of the
surrounding parishes," and- m a tew
days 150 whites encamped . around the
Court-house at Colfax, in which were
several hundred negroes, most of them
armed with Enfield rifles. The white
leaders of the negroes stepped on board
a passing steamer on Ji riday evening,
and went to New, Orleans, out of reach
of daiTger. The first fight occurred on
Saturday the 12th.- The wliiteB, com
manded by Hadnot, a member of the
Fusionist Legislature, were defeated,
but there was no loss of life. On Sun
day noon the final battle took place,
The barricades were stormed and the
negtoes driven into ' the Court-house,
and the assailants, being unable to oust
them, set fire to the Court-house, and
as soon as the negroes ran out shot, them
ddwn one by one, to the number oi -100
Many were wounded, and the rest es
caped. The' whites lost only two
killed, including Hadnot, their leader.
Several were wounded,

To which the Governor made the fol

To the New York World :
The feeling of Oregon in regard to
the Modoc assassination is that of the
deepest sorrow, and of intense thirst for
swift retribution, lne cotd-Diooded
