Uncle Sam's Sew Children.
Hood River, March 26, 1902. Editor
Glacier: Within the last ten years near
ly fnnr million rjenrde have come from
across the seas t America, seeking to
better their condition. Many of these
imvfi crown to be some ot the Dest cit
izens in Uncle Sam's domain; while
others have required much schooling to
bring them up to the American level of
intelligence and - ideas. Some of the
best young people with whom we asso
ciate are children of those who sought
a new home with us. and Uncle Sam
extends a welcome hand to all who
mean well. H is quite likely the year
1902 will witness the largest influx of
foreigners our country has ever known,
notwithstanding past records. Among
all the new children none will be more
welcome than the Finns. Finland is
comparatively a new source from which
to draw our people, and the circum
stances which are sending these people
here are, from their point of view at
least, mournful if not pathetic. In all
probability before many years nearly all
the Finns who can conveniently leave
their old homes will be with us. They
feel that their old land is no longer their
own. The Czar of Russia has taken the
reins of -government from the hands of
the Finns, and their native country is
no longer desirable to them. Not long
ago the last native Finn was made to
resign his office in the department to
make room for the Russians, and every
ship that leaves Finland is laden with
people bound for Canada and the United
States. In 1809 Finland became a de-
- pendency ot Russia, but for many years
a fair measure of personal and political
independence was allowed the Finns.
They were permitted for a time to pre
serve, at least in part, their ancient con
stitution. The leading officers were ap
pointed by the Czar, and the acts of the
legislature were subject to his veto.
This the Finns endured without com
plaint. The Czar at length made up his
mind that a more complete rule on his
part was necessary, and the Finns were
subjected to military rule, by which the
old liberty was effectually swept away
and the country put on about the same
footing as that of old Poland. Thus the
people feel that their individuality is
gone and their country is no more theirs.
The Finns are a good race. Some trav
elers say they resemble the Scotch peo
ple. They are usually considered stub
born, at least by the Russians, but let
me tell what makes them so. The Czar's
' laws. Then again, the stubbornness
generally takes the form of truthfulness
and unswerving honesty. They endure
privation with patience and are kindly,
law-abiding citizens and peaceful. As a
rule they are pretty well educated, for
education has been general in Finland
for more than 60 years. Under the com
pulsory school system every child, be
ginning at the age of six years, has been
obliged to go to school. There are
thoughtful people in Europe who believe
that in a few years Finland will be de
populated of its old inhabitants, and it

A Noteworthy Rock.
Bingen, Wash., March 21, 1901.
Editor Glacier: Iu the mountains
of Skamania county, Washington,
there is at one place a large
rock, on the face of which may be
seen four figures representing impres
sions of the hands and feet of a human
being. These were evidently made with
tools ot stone or some other hard ma
teritu, but by whom, and for what pur
pose is not known. The marks of the
hands and fingers, although clearly de
fined, are not very neatly worked out.
The foot prints are better and smoother,
and, as if made bv feet covered with
moccasins, their toe marks are confluent
and cannot be distinguished. I found these
marks 11 or 12 years ago. It would be
interesting to learn whether or not any
one else has noticed these or similar ng
ures in the same region.

A Wonderful Transformation.
Klondike School District, March 25.
Editor Glacier: Since the snow left us,
and Mr. Bone got the water from the
south, our weather got so warm that
people on and below the w ater line are
going to raise sweet potatoes, peanuts
and beans. Water from the south
brought alligators four feet long into
Dukes canyon. It may be one I saw
once in ISahiha, South America, years
ago. Just think what a change water
has made. It works wonders on all
sides. But, candidly, the East Fork ir
rigating ditch will revolutionize things
in this neck of the woods. Where now
we raise coyotes and market only cord-
wood, will soon be growing the finest
apple orchards lu Hood Kiver valley.

Through the kindness of Wm. G. Steel
of Portland the Glacier is in receipt of a
pamphlet descriptive of Crater Lake, by
J. S. Diller, the whole taken from the
Smithsonian Report of 1897. There are
sixteen superb illustrations. The writer
closes with the following paragraph:
. "Aside from its attractive scenic feat
ures, Crater Lake affords one of the
most interesting and instructive fields
for the study of volcanic geology to be
found an v here in the world. Consid
ered in ail its aspects, it ranks with the
Grand Canyon of the Colorado, the Yo
semite valley and the falls of Niagara,
and it is interesting to note that a bill
has been introduced in congress to make
it a national park for the pleasure aud
instruction of the people."
The Shaniko Leader intimates that
Hood River wants the earth and says
"they can't get that, as The Dalles is

The Case of B. F. Snider.
The case of B. F. Snider, or R. M.
Hunt, es he is better known, the Hood
River farmer who was arrested last De
cember charged with impersonating an
other in order to obtain a pension fraud
nlently from the United States, and
with committing perjury, was allowed
to go yesterday morning, having depos
ited $1,000 bail.
The arrest was made by the United
States officers after a thorough examina
tion of the facts in the case. Hunt, as he
has always given his name, applied for a
pension, stating the company in which
he served and where he had formerly
lived. In the course of the investiga
tion it was learned that R.M. Hunt, who
lived in Missouri, was dead, and that
his widow was still living. The Port
land Hunt maintained there was a mis
take, and gave so much information
concerning the Hunt family that thfcre
was some doubt, although, as has turned
out to be the case, it was believed that
he was a deserter, who formerly knew
Hunt and assumed his name.
The Hood River man was held before
a commissioner and brought to the county
jail, where he has been under arrest un
til his release now on bail. Some weeks
ago, Hunt, or Snider, detailed the story
of his desertion to the Telegram, but
asked that it be not published until his
release on bond. lie admits that he
took the name of Hunt and that he de
serted from the army, but declares he
had no intention of defrauding the gov
ernment. He is able, however, to give
no clear reason for his efforts to se
cure a pension. His statement is an in
teresting one, however. It is as follows :
"My name is Benjamin F. Snider. I
was bom in Springfield, Ills.; went with
my parents to Missouri when an infant
and was raised near Ridgely, Piatt
county. . I bad an older brother, Elijah
Snider who enlisted in Price's army
and never returned. My mother died
in March, 18(34, and soon after I enlist
ed in company K, 18th Missouri infant
ry, and served to the end of the war and
was honorably discharged in 1805. I re
enlisted In company E, 18th United
States infantry, and served in that com
pany until 1866, and deserted near Den
ver, Colo., and went over to the
teaniBters' camp. I put on citizens'
clothes and went with that command
np North to Fort Phil Kearney, and
served as teamster until 1869 or 1870.
Then I drifted up the Union Pacific,
that was in course of construction, as a
teamster, hunter and scout, until the
road was completed. During this time
I was known as Richard M. Hunt, the
name of a man who served in company
K, 18th Missouri, as a comrade of mine.
I took his name because I was well ac
quainted with his family and could an
swer questions but had no idea of ap
plying for a pension. I have been known
by that name up to the present time,
and my record under that name is good.
I served in the Nez Perces war and as a
scout, under Captain Rube Robens,from
Boise City in the Chief Joseph war, af
ter which I drifted back through the
Idaho mountains and Nevada as a team
ster and miner. In 1877 I married my
present wife, and have lived with her
and raised four children of my own and
five stepchildren. I have never done
anything to disgrace my name except to
desert, and that is no charge now. I
made application for a pension under
the name of Richard M. Hunt, and was
arrested December 13, 1901. When , I
finally have this matter cleared up, I
will live as a good man and a citizen and
soldier. I am not afraid to face any
thing I have done. I have been a good
citizen all my life, and taught my child
ren to fear and respect the law. There
is no place I ever lived but that I can
go back and meet my old friends and
neighbors. This is my whole history.
from the time I enlisted to the present
aay, ana l tninK mere is nothing in it
that any man need be ashamed of. with
the exception of desertion, and under the
circumstances any other man would
have done the same. I was nothing but
a Doy, and had seen service only in the
volunteers. Service with the regulars
was so different that it made many men,
Older and stronger than myself, desert.
1 had incurred the dislike of our First
Sergeant, and every chance he had he
inflicted undeserved punishment. A
lew oays Detore l deserted, for some
breach of discipline, he placed me under
arrest and tied me up by the thumbs
for two hours out of every 24, and then
I was made a spread eagle for two hours.
I made up my mind to emit, and having
a friend who was wagon master, I went
to mm. He told me he would furnish
me with citizens' clothes, aud I went
with the command as a teamster, and
rendered as good service as if I had beeu
a regular soldier. I was a favorite with
an tne soldiers, and they all knew me
by the name of Hunt, so that I could
not drop that name.
W lien 1 was married, I could not
change my name. We have lived to
gether 15 years, through all kinds of
trouble, and she has been a true and
loving wife to me. If I have done wrong
it was through ignorance of the law. I
would never have sinned the naners
knowing, as I do now, that I could have
made application under my own name.
I will now have to lose my pension from
1891 to the present time.

A Biff Family a Blessing.
Wilkes-Barre, March 20. The largest

Mountain Top, near this city, and still

Mrs. Smartwood naturally has advice
to give to mothers. In the first place
she advises marriage when young, biie
married when she was 14. Here are
some of her maxims for mothers:
