The Modoc War.
The Modoc war promises to
be a repitition of the Seminolo
war in Florida thirty years ago.
Then, as now, the purpose of
the Federal Government was to
force the Indians to remove.
The best officers of the army of
that day were, one after anoth
er, sent with troops to dislodge
the small band of Seminoles,
who were headed by Oceola
and Billy Bowlegs. The war
was a protracted one. Occa
sionally an Indian was killed
or a squaw captured. The
main body of the Indians, tak
ing refuge in the everglades,
could not be got at. Finally,
after a heavy expenditure of
money, and the loss of many
troops, negotiations were re
operied, and the Indians in
duced to remove. The San
francisco Bulletin says: "About
forty Modocs, having at the
last accounts, nineteen guns,
several squaws, and a tolerable
supply of whisky, have defied
the Federal Government for
over two months to 'gather
them in.' An old hunter up in
the mountains offered to deliver
the scalps of the whole lot, at
the nearest express office, 'G.

LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT.
May 15, 1873.
J. W. Bowen, Esq.,
Editor Enquirer :
Dear Sir: Your favor of the 13,
to hand this morning as noted.
Our work is steadily but slowly pro
gressing. Wo have at work from
seventy to eighty men. Have had
a small force at work through the
winter, and thus far this spring,
with from forty to seventy horses
and mules. Have worked through
the winter principally on heavy
and rock cuts. We expect to in
crease the work materially in about
two weeks. We have had no
estimate of the work done since
January 1st made, but will send
you herewith the Engineers' report
to that date.
It would be impossible, under
present state of matters, to tell
when the work will be commenced
in ypur County; but I believe if
the Board would make arrange
ments to commence there at an
early day, that most of your sub
scriptions would bo paid promptly.
But you are aware that there has
been a strong disposition to hold
back, to ee what the Supreme
Court would do with the Boesel B,
R, law that foot having now been
ascertained, and said law been de
clared unconstltuioual. Our citi
zens will see that if we are to have
a railroad that we must go to work
and build it. That has always
boon my opinion, and I have worked
steadily auead, witu tnat qojeci in
view; and must believe, that if my
efforts had been supported by the
stoek'holders of the Company, as
they should have been by tho pay
ment of the installments on their
subscriptions as they matured, our
road would have been graded to
your town before this. Rut instead
of encouraging the enterprise, every
effort within the reach of a few
disappointed, selfish and envious
aspirants, has been resorted to for
the purpose of defeating it, or fail
in that, of delaying the enterprise,
Finding that their inisrepresenta
tions and abuses of the officers of
the Company had not the desired
effect of stopping the work, as a fi
nal resort, they determined to with
hold the payment of their subscrip
tions; finding the work still pro
gressed, whether they paid their in
stallments or not, this opposition
found that they must adopt
some other plan, or the road would
be built in the face of all their op
position; and to effect their object,
every effort was resorted to that
tricky minds could bring to bear,
by misrepresentations, to carry the
election in January. Failine in
that, the next move was under
writ of quo warranto, which was to
have been tried in April, but ha?'
ing failed to give legal notice, they
could not have it tried, and the Dis
trict Court adjourned to July 8th,
when it is said, the opposition will
have the case tried ; if so.you will find
it will end in smoke or gas. But
to some extent, it is having the ef
fect desired by them, viz: giv
ing lawyers, (some of them have
sued on their stock,) fees,
and discouraging some of the
friends of the road.
I have tho samo opinion I have
always had in regard to building
the road, but it cannot be done so
rapidly by a part of the stock-hold
ers trying to pull it down, as it
could bo by all working together.
I have intendod, for some weeks
past, to visit your town, but I have
had my hands full, and the roads
have been too bad for anything but
slow traveling. I cannot say w hen
the road will bo finally located to
your town, but that is a Job that will
require but a few days, and can be
done almost any time. When desi
rable, I may bo ablo to give you
some further items, and should
often have written to you, but much
of the time homo matters have
kept me closoly engaged in the of
fice, when not out on the line.
I will send you herewith, the
prospectus of tho Berlin and Pom-
eroy railroad, by which you will
see that other parties ai-o moving
to reach the immense beds of mine
ral that line our route. This road
will cross our line about twenty-two
or twenty -three miles from here,
and some of the parties interested
in it, assume that it will be built,
and I think many of the discon
ttcd people here would be willing
to connect with t))Cm ftt that point,
and go no further,
A few months ago this opposition
were all up for the Ohio Val
ley road, which Appeared to be al
most exclusively dependent upon
the action of tax-payers under the
Bcosel railroad law. Jf pur road
was completed to Logan, we would
have the cheapest most valuable,
and best dividend paying road In
the State for its length. It would
be tho main trunk mineral railroad
through the best portion of the min
eral portion of tho. State. It would
be but a short time ubtll In addi
tion to the Berlin road, referred to
above, we would have a connection
by rail with Circleville, at or near
your town, and very probably, also,
with a -road from Washington, Fay
As an investment, I do not believe
there is an enterprise in the State
of Ohio, to-day, that presents as
good a prospect for a large profit, as
there Is in the stock of our railroad.
True, it progresses slowly, but
every week is adding something to
the work, and if all interested
parties would do their duty, (we
ask no more,) we would soon have
a railroad; but if you hire a man
to publish your paper, then tell him
you will not furnish him with paper
and ink and type, as you agreed to,
you cannot expect him to print
your paper, neither should you ex
pect a railroad to be built by your
directors when you refuse them the
means to build the road that you
have contracted to furnish them
simply because all the stock-holders
cannot be directors. Yet the
most of the work thus far done on
our road, has been done without
any money in the treasury of the
company; but those doing the work
have had confidence enough in the
company to continue the work Un
der the asauranoe that their pay
was sure, though they might have
to wait for it longer than they
should. And you wtfl notice, by
tho report for January, that I send
you herewith, that the company was
between twelve and fourteen thous
and dollars in debt, on January 1st,
1873. The annual election was
held on the 15th of January, arid
before the discontented stock-hold,-
ers could vote themselves Into of
fice, they were required to pay up
their delinquencies, and some of
them done so, to the amount of fif
teen to eighteen thousand dollars,
(not being half as. much, as, we ex
pected, from their boasts, would be
paid,) which enabled the directors
to pay off the indebtedness of the
company; and, on the first of April,
the company was entirely put of
debt, unless there may have been
some small amounts back on pay
rolls, unaccounted for. I don't
know of any. Since January, pay
ments have been again almost en
tirely with held.
Yet our people have faith, and.
are working steady ahead many
of them workjng tq pay up their
subscriptions; and if we had the
money that is due, and now paya
ble, on hand, or if it was due from
men that we could rely upon pay
ing it, when needed, we could have
the road ready for the cross-ties to
McArthur, except one tunnel and
some heavy treble, work, ftfld PQssi
bly the whole of it, by the first of
October, and no doubt much of the
iron on it by that time. But under
the present state of things, we must
do as we can, antj nflt as we would,
if we had the tools to work with,
I hold that to get the greatest
benefit from this road, our citizens
should own and control it, to de-
velepe the resources of the route;
and to induce capital to come among
us, we need cheap transportation
Of the ability of our people to
own and control the ralrpad,
with but little inconvenience
to them, I have not a doubt,
neither have I a doubt, but it will
prove the best investment th.ey ever
made if the affairs of the company
nre properly conducted, and I have
no doubt but what they will be,
With the road graded, there will be
no trouble whatever to command
all the money necefsary for the
iron and rolling stock on favorable
terms. The merit of the route it
self would insure that result' I am
told that a learned member ftf the
legislature, from our county, stated
here a few days since, that if our
people would grade our road, a
company could, be formed that
would finish and operate it. How
knowing he must bet Get this
road graded and ready for the su
perstructure, and you have a basis
that upon first-mortgage bonds, will
bring all tho money you need at
fair rates; and you will not need
much aid to find customers, abroad
or customers on the line for the
bonds. If we have to go abroad
for aid, my theory always has been
to do all you can at home first, put
every dollar ii)p work on the road
that you can; show all that have
interest enough in the enterprise
to enquire, that you have confidence
in it yourselves i thus whon you go
to seek aid go with something tan
gible in your hands.
I promised my friends in the out
set that I would do my best to
buijd this road, withouC regard to
the backbiting! and mtlloe of any
one that might oppose the work.
So far I have done, paying but lit
tle attention to any napping' or
snarling that was outside of my du
ty to the company. The grumblers
and falsifiers at home are generally
well-known, and have hut 1 If tie in:
fluence on the work.
This Is two or three times as long
as I Intended it, and has not been
written ff,r publication: fottf I leave
it to your own discretion. If jou
think any of it will Interest your
readers, give it to them.

NATURE'S GREAT REMEDY
THROAT AND LVNGSt
It Is gratifying to us to inform the public
tat Dr. L. O. C. Wlshart's Pine Tree Tr
Cordial, for Throat and Lung Diseases, lias
valued an unviable reiiiitHtion from the At
luntie to the Pucillo coast, and from thence to
some of the first families of Europe, not thro'
the press alone, but by persons throughout the
states actually benefitted and cured at his
ofUce. While lie publishes loss, so say our re
porters, he is unable to supply the demand It
gains and holds its reputation
First. Not by stopping cough, but by loos
ening and assisting nature to throw on the
unhealthy matter collected about the throat
and bronchial tubes, which nim Irritation.
Second. It removes the cause of Irritation
(which produces cough) of the mucous mem
brane and bronchial tubes, (insists the lungs
to act and throw off the unhealthy secretions,
and purlllcs the blood.
Third. It Is free from squills, lobelia, ipecac
and opium, of which most throat and lung
remedies aro composed, which allay cough
only, and disorganize the stomach. It has a
soothing effect on the stomach, acts on the
liver and kidneys, and lymphatic and nervous
rugiuus, urns reacmng to every pari or tne
system, ami in its invigorating and purifying
effects it bus gained a reputation which ft
must hold alKivu all others in the market.
