Indianapolis, Intl., Feb. 13, 18S8
To tho Editor of tlio Orcgonliin.
A copy of your paper of tho 8th Inst.
lias lieun received. It was sent to 1110 1
Htimioso bv soma onu for tho tmriioso of
having 1110 read tlio arliclu in it beaded 11
"Curious Complaint." As to tnu mode
usually pursued in answering such mat
tors us ti woman I claim Ignorance, and
, if this is not in tho usually prescribed
way I bono vott will pat don 1110. It mav
lie that tho article needs no answer, vet.
in my way. I feel it a duty to answer it,
Thu writer of the article proves to mo
thu fact casually referred to in tlie sen
timents quoted as being mine, (hat thu
republicans aro very much more ready to
protect their friends than are democrats.
The manner in which this writer springs
with Hticii alacrity to tieiemi iiistiany ami
party friends bears out the truth of what
was said, Hut I wish here to say that I
never at any time felt or expressed my
self as complaining that tho widows of
(Jen. IjQgun and (Jen. lllalr should receive
ienstons, io sucii sentiment was ever
expressed by me. Indeed I am rejoiced
to know that those ladles are likely to re
ceive pensions. It is 11 great mistake
that I ever alluded to 11 (tension for my
self. I liavo thought ami so expressed
myself, that the government should give
1110 tlie salary that would have been due
mine, it is in tlio abundant I'nlted
States treasury and, as I am told is drawn
by no one. Tlio active vice-president
gets his own pay as senator. Tho reasons
given by my discreet (tarty friends for not
granting 1110 this pay is that it would set
a precedent. lint I suppose that tho
sumo would apply to thu itenslons, only
that Unit there aro a very low vico-preef-dents
to como in and very many generals.
Although wollvo in an ago when women
are much honored, tho wiiter seems to
mo to le very pronounced, and almost
unjust to mo; ho seems to forget Ihut I
may have my views, as many others
have, of tho fact that there aro during
seasons of war, battles to light at homo
that need eistl heads to command thu
forces of a well-managed government to
furnish supplies and Income to keep tho
necessary army paid, fed and clothed. I
consider in this tho one that tho writer in
that article so roughly tries to dispurugo
Is on record as having voted for all war
supplies during tho time that he was in
the Semite. And all that lie (this writer)
needs to do is to look at the government
records and know that his assertions
made cannot lw verlllcd by icconls and
dates that do not err. vl concerning
this, list imiuv in this land have homo
testimony to the truth of his loyalty to
render it necessary for mo to contradict
tho assertions of vour wr ier inado ovi
ileutly without knowledge of facts, In the
heat of passion rattier than fiom 11 deshe
to be unjust to ono who wassolteautifully
kind uud considerate of all those who in

Tlio division convention held at Milton
to-day was attended by some forty solid
men of tills end. and they wero a milt for
division, Tho lino proposed last session
by Mr. Ciockett, witli perhaps somo
slight vailations, will be tlio 0110 asked
for next whiter. .V great ileal of unsound
censure has been heujied iqion our wor
thy joint senator, for his elloits in defeat
ing tho "Ia'o" county hill. 1 am no apol
ogist for Mr. Wager, or anyone else, but
I'm of opinion tiiat ho did just exactly
tho light thing hi defeating such a
"scheme" for it was nothing less, gotten
ii(t with two unjust and impure motives
0110 to iiiako thu new county Kuituhli
can, and thu other to secure to Weston
thu county seat. It was lit no who tho
just partition thu peoplu are clamoring
for, ami they should feel grateful to Mr.
Wager, or anyone else, who lent a hand
in defeating it. Now, if we go to work
like rational men, ami draw lines with
due regard for other people's rights and
equities, wo may icasonably hoito to ac
complish thu desired result. Wo don't
want to act in a manner calculated to an
tagonize this section or that, but try to
piill toother as a unit.
Notice of Mr. Heaglo's return from thu
"HuHido" initio in the Granite' creek
country, reminds me of a sample of ore
shown mo tho other day by Mr. 0. S.jn
drus, of Hussu creek. The s(ieclmen
shown mu was from a ledge discovered by
Mr. Ambus, near the head of Hussel
creek, some twelve or fourteen miles ftoiu
Walla Walla, and was thhtcen feet wide,
very rich in galena, a rough assay plac
ing its viduu at f'tUO to the ton, Tho
ledge has Iteen otcncd only a few feet.

Territory are in a very unsound state I
was going to say, nut it's not a Mate et,
so I'll say comiuioii. 1110 last Legisla

great many attempts to duvlso means to

than to turn thu Washington Territory
Legislature loose in there lor a few days;
then wo need borrow no fuither trouble.
