he having been at Salem attending con

ia a Pitt River Indian aud must b nearly
forty years of age. He remembers having
been brought to the Klamath oouutry when
quite small, lie said there remained at
this time less tbsn IKK) Indians, including
women and children, on the agency, and
nearly all of these were Klamntbs. There
are a very few Pitt Rivers. Of men, of the
Modocs, less (ban eightoen remain to tell
the story of thisonoe powerful tribe. Of
Snakes (here ate twenty braves. When
asked if it were true (hat the Indiana were
dying off rapidly, Mr. Jaokson replied that
It was only too (rue. llessld their numbers
were growing gradually smaller as tbe years
rolled on. A vary tew years will see tbe
last Uodocs and Snakes lowered into their
graves. There being more of them, there
will be Klanialhs when the others are all
gone. Consumption is the fell destroyer.
The Indians ste nearly all affected with it,
and not ouly the old, out the young as well,
are sncouiubing ever day to it. Mr. Jack

people and gives it as his opinion that it is
