Hood River, April 24, 1!)04. Editor
Glacier: My time Is ho much taken up
with home affairs that I seldom go out
to- observe the astonishing improve
ments that are being mde all through
the valley. The fact is I should hard
ly know, if not from the Information I
get from the Glacier, hut what Hood
Kiver was yet a ''howling wilderness"
us it was when I settled here in 1876.
But the Glacier has not told all. Its
Argus eyes have overlooked a spot that
did me more good to see than any spot
I ever gazed at during a two-years'
tramp through North America, Central
America, South America and the Sand
wich Islands. That spot, sacred to
a poet, a lover of the grand
and beautiful, lies about two
miles from Hood Kiver depot, down
the Columbia river. When I came
here it was claimed and occupied by
John Dye, a white man' who with a
squaw held the .place in joint occu
pancy, and among the rocks the squaw'
managed to raise cn mi if h garden veg-
etables to partially subsist on after
washing their "muckaruuck" down
with copious draughts of whisky. As
lonu s the whisky lasted, John and
his squaw were oblivious to all other
eanniy events aim my Buuriug
ing embrace in their blankets, not car
ing a cent how the world wagged out
Hide of t heir little cloth-covered heaven.
John's squaw was once the mistress of
Fhll Sheridan, who immortalized niro
selfinthe civil war. By this squaw
Sheridan had a daughter. Tbisdaugh
ter married a half-breed named Olney,
a relative of Judge Olney, who died at
Astoria in 188, if I remember rightly.
Sheridan's daughter was an exception
ally good looking woman. She was
proud of bei yg the "daughter of a big
chief," andNher mother was equally
proud. After Sheridan left her,
he told me she had -lived with
four or five white men before she fell
In with Iye, who seemed to be just the
affinity she had looked for, as he was
willing to spend all his earnings for
whisky. Dye and Jiis squaw left and

Camphell. He put up a shack and
lived in it till he sold out. The house
is all removed hut the chimney, made
of nieces of rock, which 1 am told Mrs,
Camphell and the children built while
Mr. Campbell was sick I told Bob
Hand to let it stand. Let no impious
band defile a-single stone ia it. Let it
stand for posterity to gaze at it as a
sacred monument of pioneer times. I
still remember when, in 1809, Wendell
Phillips showed me the place where
Daniel Webster's house once stood. I
told Mr. Phillips the man who tote
that house down ought to be hung. I
think Bob Hand has poetry enough in
his soul to let no vandal disturb one of
its stones. Down oomesJ'atton creek,
where we used to go fishing for trout--a
good sized stream, which goes rush
ing and roaring down a perpendicular
rocky precipice a hundred feet or more.
Uncle Bob has built a hotel on its very
verge. One can sit on his porch, see
the waters go roaring over the falls
and feel Its cool, refreshing influence.
He cau look down and see the
railroad cars dragged by the
iron horse and carrying its precious
freight of human life up and down the
river several times a day. He also has
a clear view of the Columbia river for
15 or more miles, where steamers, load
ed with freight and passengers, are
constantly disturbing the waters
