The prairie is coming quite thickly dotted with new ouses, and there seems to be a firm pur. ose to utilize these lands fur agricultural urposes which bave so long been left erely as a range for stock. Having found hat water can be obtained for domestic urposes these lands loom up in value. urposes loom up in value. S. M.

Stewait on the Potlatch whs blown upon Tuesday morning, and that Joseph Brnnty was instantiv killed. As we learn the man naning the engine, fired tip and raised team to 170 lbs. nod went with nth er hands n breakfast, during which time Rronty who ad gone to the mill to get a load of lumber ant into the engine room to wa-m bin.self nd was near the fire box at the time of the xplosion. His body was thrown many 't, and the boiler had both beads blown Since the above we have been told at it was not the boiler that gave way ut the cylindar. If the above are the facts, ere must have been great carelessness on he part of the man who run the engine. It s of the utmost importance that safe and killed men as engineers should alone be nlrusted sjith such responsibilities, where human lift is exposed. PiKRca Çity. —L ast week we were called tn Pierce flity aod made the trip there in a buggy in l*sa than two days. The roads were splendid save a few bad ruts made by heavy wagons and about eight miles of tht distance through the timber near Pierce Citv which was very mnddy. We arrived at Pierce City on Tuesday noon Nov. 5lh, just as they were voting aud there cast our vote for the Constitution. About five-sixths of the voters ofthat precinct were at the polis. But little interest was manifested in Ihe election, as but one ticket wae in the field, save for two or three of the officers. While there the case of the People va Chas. ttrewn was up for examination on a charge ■of maesdaeghtfr. Defendant waived an ex* ■amination and the magiitrate ordered that he give hail fn the sum of $3,000 for bis ap pearanee at the next term of the District Court, in default ef which bail that be should stand eomaaftted to the jail till said court or t(11 said bail be given. We noted considerable improvements in the'plaee since we were there laet year, among theee were some tbrge or four new buildings, and substantial timber fort as a defence against hostile Ibdfans. We visited the mining ground of Gulling« k Bro. and their ditch and examined their "Little Giant'' and 8 Inch iron pipe for hydraulic purposes. The amount of good ground under their ditch is sufficient to last them ten years, and the elevation of their ditch above it is such as to furnish all needed hydraulic pressure for rapid and extensire work. They eetimnle that their ground will pay to the hand with their present appliances from ten to twenty dollars per day. We hope they may not be disappointed. Their ditch it 22 miles in length and takes water from Oro Fino creek. I. B. Cowen, Esq., takes water from the same creek by a good ditch to, good min ing ground on the north aide aome distance above Pierce City. We did not visit bis works, but learu that he bag good pros pects. Several other American mineis in the vicinity of the town are reported as do iog well. Several claims near Bald moun tain are still good. From a piominent Chinaman we learn that about 275 of hi; people find profitable employment in that section. Several of the men of the camp hare tested the soil for oats, vegetables and timothy bay. We were shown cabbage produced there weighing from 20 to 25 lbs each, and as large and good va:iety of po tatoes, turnips, beets, carrots and parsnips as we raise anywhere in this section. Ruta baga turnipa weighing from ten to fifteen pounds each are not uncommon. One man raised on five-eigtbs of an acre sown in timothy 5,500 pounds from the first cutting and 1,800 pounds Lora the second cutting the same year. Out on the open lands sev eral persons have produced from 35 to 40 bushels of wheat per acre. These facts clearly demonstrate that a greater portion of the land on the eiat side of the south fork of Clearwater from the summit near the ferry as fa'- back as the mining camps are j suscepiibie of tillage with certainty of good results, and all this land should be survey ed. We are specially Indebted to Mr. and Mrs, Frazer for their hospitality while we were in camp, snd the general attention and good will shown us while there was marked with gratitude. Leiter from Geneasee Valley. Gzskssks Valley, Nov. 11th, 1878. Ed. Teller:— Hurrah! for the ban ner precinct, Geneasee is Republican to tbe backbone and two inches into the mat row. Bonner being the only demo crat reciving a majority. Election at this place passed off in a quiet manner, very little conversation, nothing but water was drank by either parties, can didate cigars were smoked freely und tbe menus of each commented upon, especially those from a b"X labeled ' vote for J. J. Bonner." I would here re- j mark that B's. majority was not due to ; bis cigars, but to his many good qu tli ties, and his untiring eff>r:s in trying to bring about, a revolution in onr county politics. lie has worked hard for the formation of a riiittn party, in order that the people might pick from among themselves intelligent and honest men to fill our county offices. \V T e are sorry that we had not a better turnout, fullv one third of our voters were at the mill, or at home attending to their farms, not being ab'e to »pare so much valuable time for their country's good. Our little town is growing rapidly, R. II. Beeman is building a large store Main street. Mr. Spencer has a sash, blind and general job factory on Gcuessee street. Austin & Jones are coming here with a full line of agricul tural impliments and have made arrange monts for a building 30xG0 feet. Mr. Wilson is about to open a cooper shop, and there is some talk of J. P. Vol'mer coming out here, we hope he will, ''the more the merrier." There will be trade enough for all and more too. Yours &e„ E. F. W. E. F. W. Letter From Mouut Idaho. Mount Idaho I. T. Nov. 7th 1878 Editor Teller :— To-day we had to let the man go that shot and killed Gal lagher, as the evidence that waa given at the coronor'8 inquest would not allow U9 to do otherwise ; but we gave him 12 hours to leave the country. It is expected that be will go to Lewiston. 1 would advise the people to make him move on, as he ia a dangerous charac ter in any quiet community and onght not to be allowed to remain. He ia about 5 feet 8 inches high, dark com plected, ia a blacksmith by profession, he was discharged at Fort Lapwai last June out of the 2d Infantry and baa been employed aa blacksmith at Camp Howard. Hia name ia John White. Please notify your exchanges in Wash ington Territory in regard to him; by doing ao you will confer an everlasting favor on the people of this community, aud on all that he may come amongst. Yours truly, F. Oliver. I at re- j to ; j to the Letter From Genessee Valley. Genessee Valley, Not. 10th, 1878. Editor Teller. Dear Sir: In my last Teller I see a very good letter from our valley, 1 am highly in favor ot any improvement connected with the general welfare of this or any part of our country. It is not long since it was nearly impossible to get down the hill, not !■> g since the ferry was looked upon as a great iavor, even at the immense cost of $2, but our country is advancing, end to-day lie people on this Bide of Clearwater look at Lewiston and the ferry with a different eye, and from a differ ent view, than they did two years ago. Lewiston is situated between two kinds ot trade and also two kiods of interests, the mining and agricultural, and the agricultural interests will soon prove to be the greatest, and demand the atten tion of business, if the merchants neglect this side of Clearwater other men will not neglect it, and warehouses will be built on this side and a much easier road made down the hill, and Lewiston will then have to depend on tbe other side. Snd if Clearwater is made navigable for steamers the best interests of Lewiston is forever gone. Some of the merchants proposed to lend several thousand dol lars to this county (o build a free bridge, at ten per cent., and I understand even that proposal is withdrawn by one firm. Well, if there is no other way to get over tbe river then to throw our county in debt for from $25,000 to $50,000 be sides repairs and annual expenses, then I think we may ss well go to Almota and Colfax, for we have to go to Colfax for our flour now, and the road pays well, aod it appears to me that do one is particularly anxious to secure the loose change at Lewiston and bind our selves to Lewiston like a dog to a post. It is better for us to club together nn 1 make a new road down to tbe mouth o* II atWiii, and if no one will help to build a warehouse, why we will turn a help ing hand to thn merchants in Genessee City and build our owu warehouses, we will soon have u flour mill here on the Potlatch watet power, aod then we can get along, let us patronize homo institu tions and keep out of the rich mans clutches, better far be a little boss than ;t big man's servant. We must work and wait and pay as we go along, and if Lewiston wants our trade they must do all they can to make it for our interest and the the the ly to go there. T. E. M. to is ia by CAPT. IIAUGIIMAN'»« THIAL. He Comes Clear.—The Jury Bring In a Verdict of Not Guilty. The t- 'al of Capt. Baughman for the k'llingot'Pat Whalen is over. It has been ihe nrincinal topic of conversation on our s rects since the commencement of the cour;. 8ome ill informed people had concluded that ho. Baughman was guilty, as charged in the indictment, never stopped to think that only one side of a case is ever presented to a grand juiy. The jury impaneled in the case was among the most prominent citizens of Umatilla countv. ihe State exhausted all their challenges in the case, while Baughman challenged very few, leaving a margin of five or six if he had wanted to avail himself of techni calities. We are satisfied that the wit nesses gave their testimony fairly. Sometimes it seemed as though soute Would like to convict for vengeance in stead that the rights and liberties of de fendant should be respected. Though we are, as we said before satisfied that wbat they swore to was the truth as they understood it. Capt. Baughman after having passed through the ordeal of a trial comes out unscathed; the jury declared he did his duly, nothing more. In tho discharge of his duty Whalen was killed. Ho is exonerated from all blame by a jury of his country men. and we cannot help but congratulate him in having been tried by a good honest sen aille jury.— East Oregonian. Indian Matters —Prominent Chief)« Ad vise for Peace. Chicago, Nov 7.— The Times says: A Camp Ilobioson, Nebraska, courier just arrived from the seventh cavalry command on Ash creek states that Lit tle Wolf's trail was discovered yesterday going south from the bead of Ash creek, in the direction of Running Water. The hostiles are endeavoring to cross the road between Fort Laramie and this post. Four companies of tbe third and seventh cavalry, Capt. J. F. Simpson command ing, are in full puisuit and will doubt less capture them, not. however, with out loss of life. Red Cloud, Red Dog, Little Wound and other chiefs arrived at this post to-day and requested per mission to see the Cheyenne prisoners, and were admitted to the prison room under niiMtarv discipline and police reg ulations. They held their council in the presenco of Lieut G. F. Chase, of the 3d cavalry, commanding officer of the Indian guard. Many of the Sioux chieftains' friends and relatives were among the Cheyenne prisoners. The scene at the meeting was very effecting. Tears trickled down the cheeks of the most savage of Indian Warriors. Red Cloud made a speech and most eloquent ly urged all to accept the inevitable peace, as he and his bad done, for the sake of their posterity. In the same strain Red Dog said: "Red Cloud aud I have come to see you. We have been north a long time, and then we came here. The whites gave us good advice; we took it. You, young men, look to your fathers, mothers aud your little ones. They look very hard uave pity on them aud do right." Attention Everybody. PHOTOGRAPHS. J. H.
