Another Protest. The Idaho Statesman of
the 28th of October, protests against the pol
icy of the War Department, In reducing the
forces at the posts on the-waters of Snake
river, and says- tbat representations of the
threatening attitude or the Indian bands in
the neighborhood of Boise and Owybee have
repeatedly been., made by the others stationed
at Fort Boise. b4irtirelywithou-t.elrct..Te
shameful conduct of the War Department in
discharging- the volunteer forces could have
been obviated by proper remonstrances,- for
warded at the right time. : It could yet easily
be prevented if the intinerant Congressmen
wJbehave been .through the Infested 'distrit,
wilt lake tbat interest ia the mutter whit
they, profess to fee.1 for the whole, country.
In point of fuct, these- gentlemen saw that in
the mining.camps people, were perfectly se
cure from Indian hostilities ;.:but they do not
appear to understand that a state of war
exists over a considerable tract ot mining
country, on alt the great thoroughfares, and
throughout the partially explored regions
whkibi.fainieh the most inviting field for the
enterprise of prospectors. There is no (fiffir
ctt-lty in whipping the Indians as ofien as .tbey
can be caught, but the vast extent of couqtry
over which tbey roam renders it difficult for a
small force to rind thm with any certainty.
What is needed,, ia a-suSLoient. number of de
tachments, to be sure and find the. savages
somewhere, and. when, found, those. delacb
mcnts. should cftcn 06 strong enough to. de
feat any band of them. As to the blanket and
calico policy, it ia contemptible, in view of
past outrages committed by these red-skinned
and red-handed assassins.
Gen. Hooker on Farming. At the last an

If. Sodom and Gomorrah bad contained ten
jast men, we are told, those cities of the
plain would not have had the filling knocked
Irom under them. If Siin Francisco bas-the.
required number of blameless cbacaeiers, the
terrors of future earthquakes may be safely
defied ; but judging from, Jhe representations
of one of the daily papers of that city, if the
people depend , upon -such a contingency for
impunity, tbey may find that tbey are leaning,
on a slender reed.

Abandoned The project of putting a
steamer on the Pen d'Oreille Lake , to facilitate
the transmission of freights to Montana Ter
rity, has been abandoned, for' the present at
leat. The only remaining -chance to secure
the twde of thai Bection to the Columbia
Rrver, is by having the Mullan road opened In
time for the Spring, trade and travel. The
route to the Coour d Alene Misslonr by the
south side of tbe-Ccour d'Alone Lake, some
times called. the Old Mullan Road, presents
the best chance for a permanent route of any
now engaging public attention. But unless
the overflow ot lands onthe margin of the
lake is obviated by drainage, even this road is
not available during the Spring, mouths and
early-, in , the Summer.. Unless some- very
energetic action ie- taken in the matter, the
business of supplying the Montana mines will
fall into the bands of the St. Louis people,
and we will have lost the trade of at least ten
thousand of our best mining population.
The Illinois Lode and Mill. The Illinois
Lqds of. gpld-bearing quart is located about
five miles above Idaho City, on a gulch run
ning into ilooro's Ceek It is surrounded
by a forest of pine, and is. convenient to
sufficient water for milling' purposes.! The
lode is from six to fifteen feet wide, running
from northwest to southeast, and dips at an
angle of about forty-five degrees to .thv
West. Two tunnels have been run !nior,the
lode, and in Ju'y. last ft ton-stamp-, mill
commenced crushing rock from,, It, and has
Since- been in continuous operation. The
average yield, working all th rock as it was
taken out, has been .between $45 and $50 a
ton. , The gold averages the value of about
$15 an ounce. There is now a new mill of
twenty stamps on the ground, ready to be
pnt in operation.in the Spring. Tb' -improvements
at the Company's mines ard mill
are of a very substantial character, and are
so arranged as to conveniently deliver the
ores to the mill.
' Th ; Washington ! Standard thinks that
Washington Territory will be.glad to get rid
of 'Walla Walla county, as that -Copperhead ;
d'rstrictvwas the cause of a Democrat being
elected to Congress two years ago. This is
certainly a very cogent reason for the segre
gation of Walla Walla from the Territory.
