Jllajfir Jaokson'i Lecture.
A large audience filled the Congrega
tional church last evening to listen to
Major Jackson, of the TJ. S. army, de
liver an address upon "The People of
the Pueblos." The inclemency of the
weather did not deter tbe holders of the
tickets to the course, and many others
from attending and spending a most in
teresting and instructive evening. Major
Jackson is a typical army officer, who
shows the benefits of the West Point edu
cation and discipline of the army life. He
had made a profound study of the sub
ject upon which his address was based,
and handled it in a manner most enter
taining. He began by giving a descrip
tion of the Pueblos and the people who
inhabit, then described their quaint
dwelling places and their simple, primi
tive habits. These tribes, which live in
the dry, desert-like country of Arizona,
represent the oldest existing civilization.
It is believed, Major Jackson said, that
these were a prosperous nation, or tribe,
when Abraham was feeding bis flocks in
Mesopotamia. Geologically this conti
nent is the oldest of all lands, and it is
just as true, the scholars say, that the
first beginnings of life were upon the
soil now called American. Before the
great glacial intrusion, which covered
with ice to a great depth, tbe northeast
ern portion of this continent that section
was inhabited by many peoples who re
treated before the icy avalanche till they
took refuge in the high table lands of
the southwestern part of this continent.
Here they remained and here their de
scendants are today. The field for the
theological student is a most interesting
one, and Major Jackson has investigated
it to great length.. The speaker gave a
detailed description of the peculiar snake
dance, which he himself witnessed.
The social customs, marriage ceremonies
and daily life of these peoples were
graphically deecribed. In conclusion,
Major Jackson condemned the practice
of the government taking Indian chil
dren from their parents and transporting
them to the eastern Indian schools and
giving them a smattering of. an educa
tion and trade, and then turning them
loose to re-assume their old habits or
starve. Education should be taken to
the Indian, and tbe Indian not taken to
The address was an able, instructive
one, and every person in the audience
listened intently to the speaker's words
If all the lectues prove as interesting as
Major Jackson's, the course will be a
great success. The next lecture will be
delivered Dec. 31st by. Professor Lloyd
of Pacific University.

better place for settlement can be found
in the state. Tbe efforts being made by
the real estate exchange of this city are
very laudable, and should interest tbe
support of citizens generally. Tbe next
year will be a great one f-r the Pacific
Northwest and The Dalles and the rich
region of country, of which it is the
centre, should be among the places re
ceiving the greatest benefit.
