Save the Trees TVF what value will the "scenic" roads of Oregon be a few J years hence when the timber is cut down? Imagine the thrill to-Californians and easterners as they drive on a rib bon of paved road bordered on both sides by logged off land, dotted with stumps and charred or blanched snags. We have millions for roads, and not one cent to save the forest bor ders. We are busy exploiting our scenic resources; but let ting' the slaughter of the virgin forest lining these roads proceed. . r Private interests owning the timber cannot be expected to donate their valuable property for the public interest. Taxation is forcing them to go ahead .with cutting. Mean time there- is no money to secure the tracts and set them aside for park purposes.' The highway commission is short of funds.

The Safety Valve - - Letters from Statesman Readers To the Editor: May I say something through your paper as to what many people are doing? I find the temperance people are cutting out the firms who are -selling beer. The slogan "buy dry" is gaining ground very fast, and if Oregon goes wet the 21st I fear some who are now wet will find after the 21st that they are riding on the wrong wagon. I have been reading the States man for 40 years and it Is O. K. Robert Loeb Salem you have your home free of mortgage how would you like to have some one else clap a mortgage On it? Pub lic bonds are mortgages clapped on by the voters, many of whom may not) have to pay taxes to retire the bonds. For public improvements it is often justifiable to issue bonds on the vote of the people. But the rejcord is so full of easy voting of bonds and placing of mortgages on homes and businesses that conser vatism is always needed lest when payday arrives the money is not there to retire the bonds. Hitherto the state has required only a majority vote; and it does not except in school elections restrict the privi lege of voting i in bond elections to taxpayers. So painful has been the experience of Oregon communities over debt service during this depression that it is generally recognized that! some brake is needed to prevent excessive issues in easy) money days. Accordingly proposition 308-09 would amend the constitution to require a two-thirds favorable vote! before bonds may be issued. jThere mayf be occasions when this restriction may seem too confining. On the whole however it should act as a re tarding influence; and help to keep other people from slap- the department ot recreation with ping unwanted mortgages in the form of 'bonds on your Edwin Hughey, chairman property, in tne interest or souna pudiic creau we recora mend the adoption of No. 308. 1 SOCIETY TO SEND WJHNOIIP MIDDLE GROVE, July 18. Friday night at the home of Dav id and Roberta Bartruff the Chris tian Endeavor society met tor a social and business meeting. Ten tative plans were made for a group of the young people to at tend the summer encampment of the Evangelical church at Jenn- ins lodge, July 2f to August t The social hour was la charge of PROI pit State Power Bonds ROPOSAL 310-311 is over the authorization of $103,000 lus in bonds to be used in providing the state power fund. Since the law putting into effect the grange power act is held up by referendum there is no machinery to spend the money if it is voted. It will be November, 1934, before the legislative power bill is voted on. Then it may be No vember, 1936, before commissioners could be elected to get the work started. There is therefore no necessity at the I present trifle for voting this bond issue. Things are changing fast in the power situation. The entrance of thd federal government by building a dam across the Columbia may force the issue and plunge the state into public ownership. The developments should be closely watched and guided. Until this matter is clarified there is ! no need for spending money on power surveys. There is one further objection. .Why use bond money for operating expense of an administrative board? Better levy a fraction of a mill tax for the purpose and save the bond issue f or construction purposes. Our recommendation is to vote 311 X no. A family reunion was held at the William McCormack home. Sunday, though plans bad been made to meet with a daughter in Oregon City.

" Salem men at the . death, ot Peopeomoxmoxi: - S H (Continuing from yesterday:) "On the 8th the march was re newed, and after about nine miles the Indians were discovered driv ing all their stock into the moun tains instead of surrendering as was required. "A skirmish followed. In which the dragoons (mounted soldiers) captured 800 horses, the foot troops assisting In driving them to Wright's camp 18 miles above Spokane falls. At this camp' an Indian detained . with Polatkin, and who was suspected of certain murders, was tried, convicted and hanged. "It being Impracticable to take the large herd of captured horses, most ot which were unbroken, on a long mareh, Wright determined to have them killed, except such as could be made immediately useful- The order, was carried out on the 9th and 10th, and the Spo kane nation was, In a large meas ure, dismounted. This humiliating policy had Its effect, and Big Star, another- Spokane chief, surren dered, with his village. In due form. His example was followed by the Couer d Alenes, who were told. to make their submission at the ' Catholic mission on Couer d'Alene lake. W "On the 17th of September a conncil was held at this place. Fa ther Joset and Chief Vincent be ing present. Wright sat In judgment in an arbor of green boughs in front ot hl tent, surrounded by officers. Vincent opened the council by acknowledging that he had com mitted a great crime, regretting it, and hoping for forgiveness. To this Wright replied that he had spoken traly that a great crime had been committed; but since he had asked for peace his request would be granted on certain con ditions, these being the delivery to him of the men who struck the first blow in the attack on Step toe, to be sent to General Clarke (Gen. Newman S. Clarke); the delivery of one chief and four warriors, with their families, to be sent to Walla Walla; the return of the property taken from Step- toe s command; consent that troops and ether white men should pass through their coun try; the exclusion of the turbu lent hostile - Indians from their country, and a promise to engage in no hostilities themselves against white men. "They wefe also required to be at peace with the Nez Perces, to which they cheerfully agreed, the whole treaty being written out and formally signed; Polatkin, for the Spokanes, signing and smok ing the peace pipe. "On the 23d, a council was held with the Spokanes, to which Kam lakin was invited: but he de clined, fearing he might be select ed to be sent to walla Walla. The same terms were offered and ac cepted as had been accepted by the Couer d' Alenes. After its con clusion, Owhl of the Yakimas came into camp, when Wright had nun arrested lor breaking his agreement made with him in 1856, and ordered him to send for his son, Qualchln. telling him he would bo hanged if Qualchln did not appear. Unexpectedly, the young chief rode into camp without being summoned, and was hanged with out trial. 'Owhl, attempting to escape on the return march when Wright wag at Snake river, was shot by Lieut. Morgan and died in an hour or two. 'Only Kamiakin and Skloom of the Yakima chiefs of any note were now left. Their Influence was greatly lessened by the re sults of their previous acts. Kam iakin abandoned his country and people, going to British Columbia, whence he returned no more, and Skloom sank into ocurIty. (As torn recently in thL column, a great grandson of old Chief Kam iakin has been a student at the Sa lem U. 8. Indian training school at Chemawa, a bright, upstanding. likable boy, with good mind and retentive memory.) S "As tor the Palouses, Colonel Wright refused to treat with them, but Instead had several ot them hanged. . . . On the 6th (Oc tober) the. whole command re turned to Fort Walla Walla. Is "On the 9 th, Wright summoned the Walla Wallas into his pres ence. When they were assembled he ordered all those who had tak- a part in tne recent catties to en stand up; SS standing up at once. he selected four who were deliv ered to the guard to be hanged, making In all 16 Indians by him hanged as examples to their peo ple." S Written at Salem July 30, 1893, these are the concluding words in Mr. Victor's book; "The country east of the moun tains was closed to settlement by military order, much to the dis comfiture of persons who had en tered into stock raising on its grassy plains. But General Harney succeeding General Clarke in command ot the department of the Columbia opened the conntry to settlement In 1859, since which time, with the exception of raids by Snakes and Utes, and Joseph's war of recent date, there has been peace and prosperity for both the white and red inhabitant." .The reader who . has followed this column knows that, from 1865 on. the covered wagon Im migration across tne plains over the old Oregon trail was almost entirely discontinued, on account of Indian troubles nearly all the way across, and was not resumed until 1863, when the U, S. was ready to protect the caravans with dragoons. Mrs. Victor copied in her book the old muster rolls of Oregon for the period beginning with .the Cayuse war under the provision al government, brought on by the Whitman massacre of Nov. 29, 1847, and continuing to the time when she wrote. These old muster rolls make Interesting reading Interesting to Oregon pioneers and their descendants, and in crea singly so, and valuable, to careful students of history. In this column appeared, a few days ago, the names shown on the company roll ot Capt. Charles Bennett, noted early day Salem- ite, giving the names of the men who served under him until he was killed in the so-called Yak ima war in 1855. The writer also promised to copy the names ot the two Salem companies who served In the Cayuse war Co. G under Capt. James W. Nesmith, and the one In which Morgan Lewis ("Lute") Savage, his great iriend, served. The last named was Co. F. They were the 9 th and 8th companies respectively. No- 9.

Here In the balmy open air, amu Babylonian columns with the starry skv overhead and marble mosaics underfoot, mineled the moss beau- ttfol women and the best-fed men on earth. The rabble too far back to smell the expensive perfumes- was held in check by ropes and policemen who wore white gloves for the unttsuaieeaaMn. Whenever a polished motor car brought up another atar, or even an established featured player, the multitudes on the sidewalk cheered and clapped hands. The announcers excited voice began to fall over it self. "Just a minute folks! Here comes Sybil HalL the screen start She's wearing a ha I hat--good evening. Miss HalL Miss HaB Miss Hall ha! hat would you say a few words la the microphone, please, to the folks out there on the air. . . Miss Hall consented In a voice warm and living. A silvery evening dress glistened on her body. The announcer's eyes worshipped her loveliness, for a moment before he turned to worship the next glitter ing arrival. - Before the evening was over the whole galaxy of Hollywood passed before the microphone and said ap proximately the same thing. All confessed themselves to be In high state of excited anticipation and professed the keenest affection for the absent Lena Luneska. The announcer, who was not go ing to see the picture at alL de clared repeatedly that motion pic ture history was being made to night and his words grew increas ingly electrical. At home, his wife listened In shuddering fear that his tongue would slip and he would say what he really thought about the whole affair. It had never happened but Mrs. Announcer lived in terror un til all was safely over. A stocky gentleman arrived and spoke a few words into the ether. He was the mayor of the city. A domestic-looking man in gray suit Tom Mulrooney, chief of detectives was ignored by the announcer and passed -inconsptcu ousry into the theater. The announcer craned his neck hopefully toward the curb as a tall young man wearing a negligent top coat over his dinner Jacket ap proached. Several women turned their heads to look at him. This was Lucky Cavanaugh gambler with his athlete's body and step elastic as a cat's. His skin was clear and tanned over high cheekbones, a bold Roman nose, ana a solid cnin. Tne eyes were gray, steady, unconsciously arro gant. No one mistook him for an actor. The bony structure of his coun tenance belonged to a generation antedating Hollywood; to the peri od of frontier and plain and sun baked cattle towns. This heritage was in his face yet his voice vibrated musically and his manners bore the unmistakable stamp of a cultured superiority. "And here comes Lucky Cava naugh!" cried the announcer into his contraption. There's a rumor around he broke, the bank at Cali ent last week. Maybe hell give us his system." The young man smiled faintly and addressed the microphone. "Dont you believe a word of It, Leni! Leni! It is I Karl! Karl Enger!" citizens," he said easily. "There's only on wsy to beat roulette and that Is to own the wheel.' I didn't" There was a burst of cheering from the street and -Leni Luneska arrived triumphantly on the arm of a middle-aged gentleman in a silk hat She was small and slim in an evening wrap of platinum material wrapped tightly across her figure. The searchlights gave her a metal lic sheen; around her blonde head there was, almost an aura, Her voice when she spoke for the radio audience was slightly agi tated and had the quality of golden wine with bubbles rising. The scarcely perceptible accent carried the flavor of Europe. This night" she said, "is the climax ox au that I nave ever dreamed for and hoped for and worked for. If I am happy, I' am also a little frightened. Give me, please, your good thoughts. . . ." Lucky Cavanaugh took off his dark felt hat and stood quite near, watching her. As she left the mi crophone it was necessary for him to stand aside. She passed so near that he sensed magnetic radiations from her body Her face had the fresh young vital ity of a flower, but the violet- colored eyes were slightly shad owed as from fatigue, Lucky Cavanaugh's admiration suddenly was complicated by twinge of pity. He had caught with his gambler's sixth sense, the be wilderment the lonely and troubled uncertainty of the lovely Leni Lun eska as she stood balanced pre cariously on too very pinnacle of tame. This knowledge was purely in stinctive with him. He was, by pro fession, a gambler and endowed with some strange quality of hu man understanding akin to tel epathy. Frequently this semee de ceived him, but more often it was amazingly accurate. Up until this moment the matter had been only Idle speculation with, him when a man's guttural voice broke out from the crowd held back by the cordon of ropes and police men. "Leni! Leni! It U I Karl! Karl Kruger!" The voice, apparently, struck the girl like a bullet She stopped and even before she turned her head, the color began to recede from her face. Before the nearest policeman could stop him, he had stooped and dashed under the rope like an ani mal. With rapid steps he crossed the forecourt and was beside her. Lucky Cavanaugh, no more than five feet from Leni Luneska, saw and heard. The man was a foreig ner, shabby, emaciated. His ees protruded and burned with excite ment The lips were thin and slightly twisted. "I am starving, Leni!" he rattled in his throat "Do you want me to tell everybody the whole world to shout it from the housetops" He began to fling bis hand and change color as policemen came rushing - up.

Her escort's face was blank with lack of understanding, but Karl Kruger's step was jaunty as he walked behind the girL There was no trouble at the door.
