Sunday morning an excellent commu

a leading and intelligent citizen of
Salem. " We hope ' thoJeTiodlTot

But there is another side to tlii
question, to winch we desire to call
attention. The liome manufacturers
themselves, liave much to do in de
ciding whether tlieir enterprises shall
succeed or not ; much more, perhaps
tlian they liave generally supposed.
Oregon lias always paid a high price
lor labor too high, for the general
good of the people. Oregonians liave
never been content to come down to
the scale ot prices prevailing elsewhere,
but liave followed the habit of think
ing they must obtain the old prices,
or tliey will not w ork. Manufacturers
used to make large margins of profit,
ana titey tuiuk they cannot come
down. The man who makes cloth
asks nearly tlie price of ten or twelve
years ago. The wagon-maker, the
plow-maker, the shoemaker, tlie work
er in wood, etc., etc., all ask pretty
near the old prices. This lias tlie ef
fect to let into tlie market eastern
manufactures, made by lower-priced
labor, to undersell all home products.
Oregonians' are just like other peo
ple they will buy the goods they can
get cheapest, or rather, lor the leas

tendent found that be could not Induce
tlie Modoc band to go peaceably upon
tlie Reservation, be turned the matter
wer to tlic military authorities, with a
fruition to avoid bloodshed if posrible.
He did not expect, of course, that tlie
soldiers would be dispatched after tlie
Modocs, so soon as to prevent sufficient
notice to all tlie settlers. As soon as
lie learned tliat Capt. Jackson's compa

public demand by bringing as many
and as gotxt an assortment of goods to
this market as win meet the demands
of tlie community. Our prices are as
low as the prevailing prices in Port

and persons who wish better goods at
lower prices can nanny iait to go fur

As fine furniture as is made any

now its it Is made here, we ought to
show our appreciation of It, by not

inducing all otliers on this coast to do

General Spinner. Colonel Alonzo
Bell, of the Seeond Auditor's Olllce ;
JxJckwood ALay, ot the Census JSurcau:
Mr. Church, ot the Congressional Globe
and Robert W. C. Mitchell, of the
Treasury, all Xew Yorkers, returned
to their respective duties on Monday,
after preforming good service in the
Empire State. Mr, Mitcliell was the
.bearer of a cordial letter of tlianks from
tlie Republican Congressional Com
mittee to his friend Thomas Nast, ot"
Harper's for his effective and stirring
work during the recent campaign.
It was at Mr. Mitchell's suggestion
that the Committee determined to
introduce Mast's masterly cartoons in
to the documents of the camnaicii.
and the manner in which they were
called for was a sure evidence of their
Ykeka. Dee. 13. Two gentlemen
arrived this evening from Hot Spring
Valley, iu Kastern Siskiyou, via Kort
Crook. Shasta county, as it was -on-sldcred
dangerous to cross the Siski

There was some little excitement In
Eastern SUklyou on hearing of tlie
Modoc outbreak, lest the Pitt river
tribe in Kastern and Central Siskivou.
which number nearly as many as tlic
Modocs. might take a part, but the
Indian there arc lietween two tires,
The Modocs liave threatened to kill
them if they don t help, and they are
afraid ot the white settlers. It' the
Modocs liad any sliow of success the
Pittrlver Indians would certainly join
them, but they say that in' less that
two moons tlie Modocs will lie
all killed off. The following is a
description of the lava-bed country, bv
C. Y. Doleu. who has liecu tliere. and
which Is likely to lie tlie scene of ihe
Modoc operations : It is located on
the southern shore of Tule lake, and
is situated wholly in California, just
south of the Oregon boundary line,
containing an area of ten miles
square, all cut up with fissures deep
gulelics and abounding with large
caves, tla largest being that known as
Ben N right s cave, said to contain lir
teen acres of op'ii space underground,
in which there is a good spring and
many openings which a man can crawl
through, tlie mam entrance neing
about the size of a common window.
Tlie gulclies and crevices rango from a
lew leet to a hundred feet in width.
a hundred leet
ileen. The Indians can travel all
through tbi lava country by trails
known only to them, and stand on
the bluffs over persons one hundred
feet beneath, where it would require a
long journey to go to them, in tins
lava-bed are also small flats luxuriant
with bunch grass which cattle find
great trouble in reaching by long cir
cuitous tracts over rough lava rocks
while on tlie outskirts of the lava-bed
may continually be found a large
amount of stock, the cattle range be
ing unsurpassed. The Indians -an
see men coming at a distance of five
miles without their being s-en. Thev
can also let their pursuers come with
in a few feet of the blurt ami snoot
down, retiring it necessary to other
similar bluffs. As to food the Iudians
can find all tliey want of cattle Iu ami
around the lava-bed, and can also go
out on tlic lake in canoes to n-n or
shoot game; tlie only thing the Indian
lack for a long seige will be ammuni
tion for their gnus, but they will make
arrows instead. Those pursuing will
have to follow tlie Indians on foot, and
in journeying through those gulches
and crevices to hunt them must expect
to find the Modocs on the high bluffs
above them on every point or making
tlieir way through concealed passages
to secure hiding-places. It will re
quire tlie greatest cunning and strate
gy to capture or exterminate tli Mo
docs In this lava section, iiotwithstand
ing their insignificant number. The
snow never falls deep in this section,
and melts off in twenty-four houiv
Jim's band is undoubtedly near tlie
lava-bed, and if not with Captain .lack
soon will be. as it is evident, from
Jack's men burning Monroe's house
tliat his band had as much to do with
committing depredations on tlie set
tlers as Black Jim's band. AH tlie
families from the vicinity of Hot Creek
liave arrived in town or in Shasta val

Tliere is nut any noticeable change in the
money market from last week. Money is
very scarce and owners are very eliarvof
letting it go even on best securities.
The financial speculations at the east re
fer the general tightness of tlie Ameruan
market largely to the drain of gold to Ger
niiny and European money centers, to pay
interest on tlie vast amounts of American
government and railroad Ixmds held by cap
italist there. This drain will of necessity
continue foraloiiK rime to come: and we
see mi hope of material relief accent
through adventitious cimimstances. the oc
currence of which is not easy to foretell.
