Tin: Indians and some crson, name
not ment'ou'd, had a pow-wowat Win
IlCIzi ucca, on the 1th in?t, in which a
munser of Indians, natives of Califor
nia, NovaJa ami other places, took part
tJUid expressed a a desire not to to
Malheur Reservation. Msfc of the
Piute?, including old AYinnemuccji,
seemed to be willing to return provided
Lectins and 3 ee were snt back fn.m
the Yakima. Now, va are of the opin
ion, judging from the tonco! the report
of the povv-wow, that the people of
Nevada, arc very anxious to retain the
Indians in that section, as roving citi
izens for per.-onal gain or otherwise,
and that the Indians arc misinformed
in regard to many things. We know
nothing about how they fared while at
the Agency except what we hear from
parties who prctecd to know, and they
say that, the Indians were well fed and
well cared for. One thing certain sup
plies were plenty and they got them.
It is a well known fact that there is now
an abundance of provision, Hour, blank
et, etc , etc., at the Agency and thou
sands of pounds on the road there.
Now, if the Government does not in
tent! to put the Indians on the Reserve
why in the name of all that is good do
they continually send supplies here.
To tell the truth there is a "nigger in
the wood pile" some place and the Gov
ernment officials know how he got there,
and what he is there for. It is a dose
secret. It appears bad to be parleying
with a band of rovinii red devils the
way these Piutes have been dealt with
for the last year and the sooner the
authorities put them on the Reserva
tion, or throw the land open for settle
ment, the better it will be for all par
ties concerned. We believe it is the
intention of the government to make
the Malheur a very large Reservation,
else they would surely shut oil supplies
Mi. A. Ntdtner, of the Portland
Standard, gives a glowing deseiiption
of his visit to Eastern Orcsron. Rut
we hope ho will be able to get to Grant
County next time and see the finest
county in thi part of the State. The
Oregon ian should send a man up into
the John Day valley t seethe people
and country, as the weekly has a very
large list of subscribers here. Come
up, Rro. Scott !
We take the following from the
"A Ghkat Emimiu: No one can re
alize the magnitude and extent of the
agricultural rescourecs of Eastern
Oregon and Washinnton Territory
from the reports published in the
papers. In fact, the imagination can
hardly conceive the fact that a section
of country, which, four or five years ago
was regarded as only lit for stock rais
ing, to-day with less than a population
of fifty thousand souls, exports from
sixty to seventy thousand tons of wheat.
This section of the great Northwest has
developed much faster than any part of
the Pacific Coast, and the extent of its
productive capacity is scarcely known.
There is sufficient territory to support a
population of live millions- There is
aii empire belonging to Oregon and
Washington Territory, east of the
mountains, which, -within five 3'ears will
furnish more wheat for export than to
day goes out of the Golden Gate in
California. Another year will do more
to develop Eastern Oregon and Wash
ington than the past ten, and shippers
will keep up -with the demands of the
FM. W. ChiUls & Co., of Happy Camp,
Jackson county, cleaned up 68,000 last
week after a run of H days.
A man named Dodson has been ar
rested by Sheriff Hall, of Polk county,
on a charge of horse stealing.
Mr. Cha. Mosher has returned to
Poseburg and will hereafter be engaged
