Fort Harney, April 16th, 1880.
Editor News: Considerable ex
citement prevails in the southern
part of this county over a reported
outbreak of the Piutes who have
been roaming between "Whitehorse
and Fort McDermit
The reports and cause of the ex
citement which have reached here
are so varied and contradictory that
I do not care to "father" any of
them. But from all accounts the
devil is getting into the Piutes again
and doubtless they will resume their
old business when fine weather sets in
"The troops must go." An offi
cial communication to the Ass't. Ad
jutant General, Dep't. of the Colum
bia requesting authority to burn de
cayed lumber which had been lying
around the Post here was returned
with the endorsement that it had not
been decided yet whether the Post
i would be abandoned, but the ink
was hardly dry on the endorsement
j when the following official telegraph
ic despatch was received which ex
plains itself :
To Com'dg. officer, Fort Harney,
Oregon : The Secretary of "War has
authorized the abandonment of your
Post as soon as condition of roads
permit. Detailed orders and in
structions will be sent later.
A. A. Or. Dep't. Col.
Happy Valley was the scene of a
stabbing affray a few days ago
which came near ending the career
of one of the participants.
Albert Edward Bolenbauh and
Edward Evert Kyger, two young
bucks who "Winter" in Happy Val
ley, were compelled by stress of
weather to "go outJUafter a load of
wood at that place recently. It
seems that Albert Edward had been
boasting of his conquests among the
fair sex over in the John Day coun
try, fromawhieh!place he had recent
ly returned. 'Upon their return with
the wood young Iuger, in presence
of a largecrowd, "pitied the poor
girl that would" have to depend on
Al. to get wood for hur." This
made Albert "hot" and he forth
with commenced to maul the stuff
ing out of Kyger, whereupon the lat
ter drew a knife and stabbed his ad
versary threGwtimes infiicting pain
fulthough nodangerous wounds.
General verdict of Happy Valley
peorne: "Hope they will have sharp
er knives next time. T.

Five-Cent's Worth of Opinion.
I have been asked several times, my
view in regard tocittl, what I thought
they would do a a business, profitable
or otherwise; while I havo been asked
th,se questions cattlo hare ben at
their lowest prices and that was the
reason. Why Because man in any
kind of bu-dno-js unprofitable i like Ihe
dying man grasping at itraw. Any
relief they may net is benefit. The
pinion can do no harm. I havo al
ways answered that citda baing ona of
the necessaries of life md the ciihi
vatir2 ol the land on western frontier
drives the free access of jirazitig beforn
it. and having some knowledge of th
vast amount of emigration that is set
tling up this coast (and the only coun
try that will support tha bovino rrbh
out, I might say, any eare whatevcrr,
Summer r Winter) it is easy to .iee
that there wdl be a corner and with ho
prospect of railroad enviro s that now
surrounds us I think the gap is nearly
ch'scd and the cornor not far off.
One. of tho reat troubles 'ii profi s
of cattle is in selling be f. In. the first

cattle at the sell-r's pr;ce. V'y be
cause he gets them on tin ?ind f an
he C'mm nccs to sell on tinv. because
he thinks he can 'tun! it if the other
tVllows can, and so it goes. Ifndtr
this system it ia a detriment to the
whole commuiii'y. E tablisb a price
