them ns wltncics of the condition of our
country nt that time. I am glad to refer to
the fact that fiovcrnor I)ouglas and myself
are personal friends. Wc have oltcn con
i ferrcd In personal Interviews and by letter,''
, In relation to the measures rrqulslts to de-'1
lend the sparse populattou of that coast ,
AiidTlt is to me a heartfelt pleasure, on this
floor, that I. ns the executive of one of those
Territories, have his cmhatlc testimony
that the ceursc taken In that Territory was
the only course which could have protected
those settlements, or which rould have pre-'
rantnl lhrlr rlrnnnulatlon And I thank
'!Ood that this bill now before tho committee
'gives mc the opportunity to refer to this
Judcmcnt. eoralnc. as It does, from an en-
tlrely disinterested source
Mr Chairman, I will not trouble the com
mittee by going tack to the eld troubles,
j and trials, and conflicts of judgment that
have taken place in regard to this war. It
is sufficient for me that I stand here on the
rock of truth, and I defy any man to gain
say my statements. I go not now to therc
'ports which speak of outrages of whites
upon tho Indians which rpenk of that war
1 having been forced upon us by the bad cou
duct of our rwople, and which accuse us of
getting up that war for the purpose of spec-
ulation. When I went to that country In
1E53, Mr Chairman, and traveled across the
j'pUln.,1 il.ltcd, on my way to Puget sound.
nearly every Indian trlbo from the mouth
of thu Yellow Stoue to tho Pacific ocean.
When I taw tho relations existing between
the white man and the Indians, I was as
tonished. I was astonished, for I was not a frontiers-J
man. I had, up to that time, seen nothing
of Indians, and but little of our frontier
population. Still I bad a prejudice that
there was much ol wrong in the relations
between the two people ; but I found that
their relatious were those of kludness and of
Hriry I had frequent complaints made by
Indians that white men would not pay their
debts; and the invariable course I pursued
was simply to address a note to the settler,
requesting him to settle the account, and It
was done In every case brought to my no
tice, esccpt In the case of a single person
who went on between two days, and who is
not now in our Territory. We have got rid
of him; nnd his acts, therefore, should not

ington or Oregon
Mr. Chairman, the honorable gentleman
from Oregon, whom I am proud to refer to
here as my friend, has told you the simple
facta in regard to the origin of that war. I
was not In the settlements at the time, but
was upon the head waters of the Missouri.
The war came upon the people of the TerrU
torles like a thunderbolt. In our Territory ,
there were not at that time two hundred
private arms , and we were only able to ob
tain arms for three or four hundred men by
borrowing then from the Decatur, and from
the arsenal at Vancouver. I refer to this j
fact as conclusive proof, showing bow utter
ly unprepared the people were for these In-
I do not intend, sir, to go into any de-
tailed account of this Indian war, but I pro-
pusc to mention one or two striking and
The honorable gentleman

When I beard of the breaking out of the
war, I went otcr to the settlements from the
head waters of the Missouri as fast as bro
ken down animals, and the difficulties of the
road, would enable me to make my way.
Coming through. It became in duly, in re-
curd to the Indian tribes that bad not bro
ken into war, to meet them, and, as tbeirjl
father, being wpcrinteodeut of Indiau af -
fairs, to endeavcr to persuade them to cou-
tlnue peaceful. I met tribe numbering
'one seven mouiana souis, anu navmg'
nearly two thousand warriors, and those!

' hostility of many of the Indian chiefs. When
'' I mettle Oregon volunteers on the field ory
t1 Walla Vraa, you may le sure that there"
was a most cordial and hearty welcome be
twecn us. Sir, to those, volunteers, under
IIcaTcn, 1 probably owc mJ ,ire for ' ,,bJ i
a party ci twenty-nve men wan uie,
I had made up my Bind to attempt to'l
make my way to the settlements. It was
, the action of these Orrgon volunteers, In
protecting the settlements, that opened tho

ilvc' Sir, I learncU nothing of the, tolon I
tecrs till I was making arrangements to fight
the hostile Indians. The volunteers met the
Indians, defeated tlicm In a signal battle
that lasted four days, and drove them across ,
thr Snake rhcr, thus, opening the way for'
my party. I was with them Tor ten days. I
They consisted of tho very flower of the pop-J
ulation of Ortgon, men of family, men of!
substance, who had taken arms in their
bands In order to protect the people of the 1
two territories; anu mere tbey were on
the cold ground, without tents, living on
horsc-flcsb, and without proper clothing, the
thermometer ranging as low as 27 deg. bo
low tero, nnd never, for fire days, getting
above zero. That is what the volunteers of
Oregon did, and I am thankful that I can
say this for them as a witness In tbil high
There aro .one or two older points to'
b'"b I ' '0 allude briefly During the
, wuo' of that war In the Territory of Wash-
ngion, not a iricnuiy jnaian, or an inuisn
prisoner, was ever maltreated in the camp 1
of the voluutccrs of Washlngtcn. I say
this In the presence of all men ; and If any
one will rise and gainsay It, I shall ntk for
the proof. For six months the people of ,
Washington had to live In block houses i
and yet, so obedient w ere the people lo taw, '
so proud of their country, doing such high
homnge to Its spirit of humanity and justice,
that during all that time the life of the In
dian was sacred in the camp of the volun
teers. Why. sir, there were nearly five
thousand disaffected Indians, durlug all this
time, on the reeenatlon Ijlng along the
waters of tbo sound, and not a man ever
went there to do them harm. I rejoice in
being able to give this testimony, here In
tbo pretence of my countrymen, In regard
to the conduct of the people of Washington.
Do you wouder, sir, that it has caused to
grow up In my heart the deepest and most
1 aeTOtej ,uachmrnt to that people, who
have held me up In their sustaining arms In
my efforts to advance the public service,
and who have, by their conduct, illustrated
its dignity and humanity, and thus given a
lesson to the country and to tho world.
Mr Chairman, I have said all that I do
stre to say at this time. I trutt that the
tame measure of justice which the commit
tee propose to deal out to Governor Doug
lass, wll! be dealt out to the people of the :
Territories of Washlngtou and Oregon. The
debt in all the cases rests upon the same
foundation. Our people furnished supplies,
and animals, and shipping, and rendered
their owu servtcts, on the faith of the Gut
ernment Every obligation ,. mad. payable)
wbn an appropriation is made by Congress.
It Is germane to my purxte to give one
or two facts In reply to the grave charges
which have been made agalntt our people (
of furnishing supplies at exorbitant prices.
Now, sir, I have a friend, living near Olym
pia, who told a hone, to be used for the
volunteer service. When asked the price
of his horse, be replied, that bis horse was
worth sixty dollars cash, "but," laid he,
"to be used for the defence of our people,
you shall have the horse for forty Ave del
i " scrip." And the horse was purchased
I for forty-five dollars. And, geucrally, for
a considerable period on the sound, horses
, were furnished tho territorial authorities,
, for scrip, twenty-fire dollars cheaper thau J
' they were told to the garrison at Fort Stell-j
aeoora for catb. At the close of this service
these animals were sold at public sale, and
I' brought from teu to fifty per cent, above the j
original cost. I recollect an lostancoofaj
mule captured, and which was rode by Cap-
tain Uennlts at the battle of Grand Honde.
Captain Uennlts rode tbe mule home to
Olympin, a dtstance of nearly five hundred
miles. He was desirous of owning the mule,
and to be bid for it when it was put up at
auction, nut iua antmai was sirucx on at

further remark, I shall submit the motion
that the committee rite.
Sir raulkucr. I desire to make one or
two remarks before this bill Is dlsposod of.
The justice of this claim has not been con
trovertcd, nor has the propriety of Its prompt
payment been questioned by any gentleman
who has so far addressed the committee
Ilut the gentleman from Oregon (Mr. Lane)
threw out a remark which certainly ought
to be noticed by some member of tho Com-
mttlre on Mliitarr affairs. lie would seem
to place us In the position of having singled
out a claim due to a British subject, and tojj
a man 01 wcaunt wane wo are rvprcrcuicu
as forgetful of the demands of the humbler
, volunteers of Oregon and Washington. This
remark docs gTcat Injustice to the com-
fpontbts state of facts, now tuade out
cUarly to our satisfaction, wc did not hesl
li uu to report the bill for his relief. It was
claim about which there could be no con-
troversy Its justice was universally con-j
ceded. We have not, as yet, had time to
examine into the great mass of these claims
which have been referred to ns, nnd to which
the delegates from Oregon and Washington
have alluded, but design to glvo them a fair
and Impartial Investigation at tho earllett
moment. I have not. so far, expressed any !
oplulon myself in regard to the validity of
these claims against lie Government, ex-!
( cept that which Incidentally fell from me In
the dlicnsslou of the army bill, In which I
I expressed the opinion tbst the report of tho
board might be re'garded as an award made
under the authority and with the full sane-
lion of the Government, and binding upon
IL I Incline to that opinion still; yet this
is a point which I shall reserve for a more
full examination of tbc cases, when taken
up In the committee.
The bill was laid aside to be reported to
the Uouse, with the recommendation that
it do pats.
