My friend, Oregon was from the first
WARLIKE AND BELLIGERENT
Part of thia coutuirnt. She comes
honestly by her regnrd for Sheridan's
old military quarters. The Indian
wars of California were as nothing com
pired to the wars of Oregon, even
the first. The Orsgnn Indiins were,
with a few exception, the most ter
rible men in battle to be found
amongst all the tribsi. They were of
a much braver and nobler stock than
those of California, and died as a rule
in the field of battle.
Have I not told you before ho
-this Oregon, when neglected by the
United States, met nnder the trees,
formed a government, made laws, del
dared war, coined her own monry
out of her own gold, main
tained her army in the field and
paid her own men out of her own
money coined by her own blacksmith,
out of gold dug from her owa toil!
Well, bear it in mind, and do not for
get it all. for it is all important and
all trus. These gold coins had a sheaf
of-wheat on onejsida and a beaver on
the other.Jthui showing the fertility
, of the scil and the industy of the peo
pie. The coins had no al'oy of either
steel or copper, like the legal coins of
the federal government, and so were
worth more than the legal coins, and
have been mostly melted up, but still
a fbw may be found. Of course, Ore--co-lraBwharmlpr"tbe"conalltunoh
no' stats could coiu"nioney. But Ore
gon was not a slate. She was not
evenvery stoutly claimed byUhe Uni
ted states as a territory. But her
loyalty, as much as anything else, in
raeetiug under the trees aud declaring
herself a part of the United States,
saved to the American people. And
so, with su.h a history behind her,
you must not blame her for her look
ing with a bit of vani y on the old
home of Phil Sheridan, for Oregon
was born on a battle field.
But my present letter is from this
spot, Eugene City, where my father

Take your map and trace stright

much less a vehicle, can cross the dense
ly timbered and sombre sea wall.
Yet one little stream has made its way
io the sea hre through a tangled and
inpenetrable mass of vine, inapl.
g apevines, myrtle, cedar, aud indeed,
ull sorts of jungle, in which the sport
ive bear likes to make entirely his own
habitation. Naturally Kie would
think that the fisherman oi the few
nd teamen driftiug up and down the
ocean would have found this Oregon
seaport era this; und uiiybe they -have
a.ter a fashion. But no one seemed to
tike any interest in it bhfore, and I
never heard of it till now, although I
was raised right here almost in the
sound of the breakers thai roll in aud
awaken the huh of the deusely wood
ed shore. I regret that I have not yet
been able to vi.it this new and eutirely
unknown seaport of Oregon.
The climate of Oregon can have my
hearty endursement; and not entirely
because I spent so many industrious
)-ars here, but partly because this
state stands second on the mortality
list of all states or places on the face
of the earth. And I assert as an ir.dis
putible fact that were it not for the
low an vicious life which has been
imported and planted along the line of
the fisheries and ports and the inoutb
of the great river and other like places,
the hialth of this state would stand
ttio first iu the worlJ and lead the liat
iu tho low rate of mortality.
And thii-, I think, is savin; about
all that need be said about the climate
of Oregon the land of eternal verdure
and roaring rivers. Yes, it does rain

Deer Slaughtering. A gentleman

busines of killing deer for their skins
is still carried on there as extensively
as ever. The settlers in lhat section are
becoming disgusted with the business
but cannot do much to prevent it.
Some are afraid of having their cattle
shot if they make complaint, and
others say: "We have dune the same
thing oursphes," and have no right to
complain ofjothers. In every direction
in Coos, Curry and Jackton counties
thecampsof tliskiu huntees are
