suo of tho Oregon Historical Quarter
ly, tho official Journal of the Oregon
Pioneers' Association, nnd gives sonio
of Mr. Davenport's Ideas and impres
8ons of Oregon Indians. Tho letter
1 says:
, "Tho differences observable In tho
I various tribes and races of mankind
aro not, as many suppose, radical
variations, that is, something of
different kind, but merely degrees of
. uaiuiui:u uiutii. . Ino same Kind, l no negro in ins nn

tune, tho Idolntors towing down to
blocks of wood or stone to appease
tho wrath of their gods, as they read
It In the earthquake, tornado, pestll
ence or famine, seem to strike us at
first as Indlcativo of another kind of
creature, but upon more mature re
flection wo see in all such n different
though a ruder manifestation of tho
same human faculties, veneration and
fear as modified by Intelligence, or
rather by ignorance. '
Perhaps tho educated Christian
wearing his crucifix nuspended by n
golden necklace would protest against
being linked with the savage, whose
desire for immunity from disease or
other calamity causes him to wear
charm; and as respects the beautiful
work of art worn by the former and
the bag of stink worn by the latter, I
would think the protest well taken
but tho actuating and basic sentiment
finding expression in one by enllglit
ened nnd In tho other by barbaric
means Is evidently the same quality
of human nature.
"The Indians of the West Coast
were given 'amulets or charms, and
generally kept them secreted. They
believed, too, In a multiplicity of spir
its distributed among tho objects of
nature, such as the spirits of tho
mountain, the stream, and smaller
things. That Is, tho mountain had a
"ta-mau-a-was:" that was the name
given by many. They also believed In
a Great Spirit, but whether that Idea
was obtained from the missionaries,
I cannot tell. When I nrrlved In Or
egon in 1851, the Indians everywhere
I met them talked about the Sohlt
Tyee, or God, though thoy still spoko
of the spirit of things.
"In either case he is not so fnr re
moved from civilized man and his re
ligious habits as some suppose, and
If logical perception Is not sufficient
proof of this, tho conversion of tho
savage to Christianity and the adop
tion by him of the Christian symbols
with entire satisfaction of his Inherit
ed trats ought to be conclusve.
"Through such manifestations it fs
not hard to discover that the Indian
Is a religious being and given to wor
ship. He and his whlto brother aro
ullko In seeing God In the clouds and
hearing him In tho wind; tho only
difference Is, tho red man's "soul was
never tnught to stray far as the solar
walk or milky way." In some respects,
however, I have been Inclined to think
him equally esthetic and moro in
practical conformity with Christian
teaching than his moro progressed
white brother.
"In the eastern part of Marlon coun
ty. Oregon, there stands an isolated
and most strikingly regular and beau
tiful bulto some 300 feet In height
and covering nearly a section or land.

Springfield, 111., July 1. The law
