Since it bas been fully ascer- |V »med that the Washington Constitution as been hdopted by the people, the press f Oregon are wonderfully silent upon the object. Had it been defeated, a howl of triumph would have been strongly mani sited through the Portland papers. 101 ani JuDoa Clark left for Boise City on Tues •y morning. He informed ne that be in ended to ftelegrapb from Walla Walla to the department at Washington for leave of absence of 20 days in which to visit Nevada. He will probably not return home till after tbs meeting of the Supreme Coart in Janu ary next, Snak* Rivstt Road.—M r. Pearcy informs as that his road up Snake river from bis ftrrj to the month of the Assotin is now so (far completed that it is passable for wagons. Also that the road down the caoyon to the fGrand Sonde river is being progressed .steadily. So much Chagrined are our Portland and Valla Walla exchanges about the result of tbs vote on the Constitution, that they do Dot take pains to report the vote fully, vhiie they are prompt to give the vote from every county oa the Delegate. Let them throw off a little bile from the stomach and they will feel better. Pat Up.— Quite a number of our patrons on a promise of early payment of their money for subscriptions to the Teller, were furnished the paper on such promise. Some of them have faithfully kept their promise, but several are still behind and to relieve their conscience they had better pay np. Stramrr Jobs Oates is reported to draw about 38 inches of water when loaded. Hardly the boat for the Snake river trade at low water. Her speed is excellent. Death or News.—T he mails of last night failed to furnish us with our usunl ex changes, and bence wo have a death of news from nbrond. Yodno Men had better start a singing scdool or some other place of profitable amusement, thhn to spend all their time and money in and about drinking and gambling saloons. The latter course is a great waste of moral character and energy. " * Capt. Stump proposes to run the North west np Clearwater river as far as the mouth of the middle fork on the first good stage of the water in the Spring. When he goes the people of Lewiston will go with him on an excursion and meet the people of Mt. Idaho and Grangeville and have a pic nic. The Northwest is competent to make the trip. G. A. Frost, Esq., and several others connected as operatives with the steam milli have built themselves neat dwellings on lots bought of S. C. Thompson opposite the mill site. The east part of the town ex hibits great improvement within the past few months. School. -^-The Fall term of the Lewiston city school will terminate Friday, Decem ber 20th, 1878. A two weeks vacation dar ing the holidays will follow, and the Win ter term will begin on Monday, January 6th, 1879. There are at present over one hundred scholars in altendancr, and others have given notice of their coming at the opening of the Winter term. South and East. —The lands south and east of Lewiston between this place and the reservation on the east and Craig's moun tain on the south is becoming absorbed at a rapid rate by first class settlers. So that in a few years the prospects now is fair that the whole area of open land will be fenced up into good wheat farms. These lands if not quite so productive as Genessee valley, will have a much more ready mar ket for their surplus. ket for their surplus. Mt. Idaho Returns. —After three days delay of the commissioners in waiting for them, came to hand last OTening. But their method of authentication is entirely different from the instructions of the com missioners in their notice, altho' the cor rectness of the result of the vote is cot questioned. If the officers managing the returns at Mt. Idaho will refer to the Consti tutional election notice issued by the com missioners, they will readily see wherein they were irregular. W«, II. Newell, late editor of the Walla Walla Statesman, died on Wednesday even ing of last week. Mr. Newell has been prominent as a local journalist for many years, and ns such exhibited much ability. But his asperity of temper often soured his writings to such an extent that be was al ways more feared than loved, lie was alive to the general developement of this north west coast and biding all his peculiarties of temper he has been instrumental in bring ing the advantages of this country before the public. Politically he was for Wm. H. Newell. His labors have ceased and with his death should die all his faults. Walla Walla has herself to thank for the position in which she has placed her self, by bucking against the ballance of the Territory, on the question of the Constitu tion. Had she stood io with other portions of the Territory, '.the capital of the new State would have been conceded to her. |V Dut now good by tQ ^ bope The , rcat . tipi /he ment of the members of the convention by the press of that city, backed by the late vote, has fixed her doom beyond redemp tion, and yet with ail her 6elf righteousness ghe cannot defeat the State. The Sun shines a part of the day at Walla Walla, but it rises and sets outside her limits. White Birds. —The East Oregonian says that eight of White Bird's band, six war riors and one woman and one child, have recently been captured by Capt. Miles among the Umatillas, and they will be sent below, and probably to the Indian country. Also that White Owl and Qnit-a-tumps, Umatilla murderers of Coggan, have been found guilty of murder in the first degree by a jury of that county. Sentence will be pronounced on the 2d of December. The East Oregonian says: "Probably in January we will all celebrate the New Year at the neck-tie party of White Owl and Quit-a tumps.'' Gone to Washington. —Hon. S. S. Fenn, Delegate in Congress, came down from Mt. Idado last week and tarried two or three days, and left for Washington on Tuesday morning. He is resolute in the determina tion to perfect, if possible, such legislation in behalf of Idaho as be has inaugurated before bis term expires. He is a worker and may he be successfnl. He Bays that in case of Ainslie's election, he has promis ed to take up such'legistation as may chance to remain unfinished by Mr. Eenn, and press it during his term. We wonld hope for something in bebnlf of this part of the Ter ritory from Aioslie, were he not under the control of the Boise City junta. Ri-abrebted.—A fter, the examination, fining and discharge of Mr. Cline the other day on a charge of assault, be became mach incensed against a witness, Mr, Reese, who swore ngainst him, and made some ex pressions of having revenge. But those who heard him advised him to cool down and go about his business and did ont really think any farther demonstration would be made. Before his former exsml. nation a pistol bad been taken from him and was in possession ot one of his neigh bors. In riding home with said neighbor he expressed revenge towagds Reese, and when be came to bis neighbor'« bouse be " -demanded his pistol. His neighbor teeing * bis state of mind refused to let him have it. His neighbor rode with him to near Reese's place, and Reese and another man ap proaebed in sight. Cline then desired to get out of this wagon. His neighbor ad vised him not to do so, but Cline insisted saying that he had some private business ^ uh 'Reese, and his neighbor supposing at be for But cor cot the that as he had Cline's pistol at his own house, he was unarmed, so made no farth er objections. Cline got ont and walked towards Reese, who seeing him took alarm and placed 'himself behind the msn who was with him. Cline then drew another pistol from his coat and told the man be fore Reese to get out of the way or he wonld put a ball through him. Reese still kept his man between himself and Cline, who then reaching aronnd the man fired at Reese. Both the man and Reese ran, and Cline fired 3other shots at Reese. One of the balls grazed him across the back. The man in the wagon then thinking he had dis charged all his loads went towards him to arrest him, and be fired a fifth Bhot at him and made movements to re-load. But the men were too quick for him. They seized him and bound him with ropes and brough him to town. He expressed the wish on the way in that he had killed the two men who had sworn against him, and then "hé would have killed himself. At times ke exhibited symptoms of derangement, other times be seemed perfectly cool and rational. He was brought before Judge Warner yesterday morning on a charge of an assault with intent to commit murder, to which charge he plead guilty and said that he did not wish to live longer. It seems that before leaving town the other day he bought another pistol, a five shooter of boavy caliber, and bad'fully prepared hifti self for the attack on Reese, and had adroitly concealed the weapon from his neighbor who rode ont with him. The whole case shows one of either insanity or great malignity of heart. He is reported to have several hundred dollars about his person. But of this we know not. The is the safest for him presentT*™ Letter lrom üayton, W. T. Dayton, W. T., Nov. 12tb, '78. Editor Teller:— The Constitution being ratified in this Territory, we can now look forward, with certainty, to the acquisition of North Idaho in conforuiL ty with the almost unanimous desire of your people. Iu the adjustment of the much discussed Indian question your interest are identical with those ot this Territory, even at the present time. There seems to bo great misapprehen sions in regard to the proceedings of the council held by Gen. Howard with the Indians at Priest's rapids. The Geucral has had the best interests of the govern fbent, the people of eastern Oregon, Washington aud Idaho, and the Indians at heart in solving the Indian problem surrounded with so many difficulties to contend with, with which the public arc not generally conversant. The proposition for one general reservation as designated in the proceedings ot the council emanated from the Indians them selves and contemplates the congregation of all the Indians there, and the aban. donment of tho Yakima, Umatilla and Nez Perce reservations, excepting the few Indians on these reservations who have, or would, elect to abandon all tri bal relations and take up homesteads in their own right. With the speedy ex piration of the treaties, the rights of the Indians to occupy the reservations, do not cease. Congressional action is the just step (towards a satisfactory adjust ment of matters. To prevent a conflict \pf races, some immediate legislation of a aefinite character must be bad. The more intelligent of the Indians compre hend the situation and ask that some definite action be taken by the govern ment defining their rights and security, not being over tenacious about terms Tho only practical solution of the In dian question is the abandonment of the reservation system altogether, l'ut can this be done immediately in furtherin the wants of our white population, with out some immediate steps being taken, to at least, temporarily provide for the . ... Urge majority of the Indiaus, uot. pre pared to immediately adopt the plan of taking lands in severalty. Without some abiding place they wonld roam at large, feeling themselves outlawed, re quiring an unnecessary expenditure of blood and treasure to bring them into final subjection to the laws. Can we af ford to take this risk? A few hundred Indians set loose in this way, could re tard the prosperity of the country for an indefinite period. Washington,Ter» ritory wonld be largely the gainer in obtaining the Nes Perco and Yakima reservations in lieu of the lands (or a portion of them) asked for by the In dians for a general reservation. Very respectfully, A. J. Cain. Indian Spoliations. The third Auditor of the Treasury has decided, with reference to the prop erty of persons who have lostspch prop ertv while in the service of the United States, that "all claims for compensation of loss of property while in the military service of the United States, by contract are adjusted and settled under Section 3,483 of tho Revised Statutes, by the Ac counting officers of the U. S. Treasury/" Claimants are requested to prepare their claims in the usual way, supported by affidavits ot the losses and tho certifi cates of officers cognizant of the same and forward them through Lieut. Fred H. E. Ebstein, at Fort Vancouver, for the action of tho Accounting officers of the Treasury. In this way those who lost their property by Indian spoliations ill receive their compensa way last year, will receive >mpi tion more quickly than in the old Inland Empire. Increase ot Votes. Iu 1876 the total vote of Ne* Perce county for Delegate to Congress was only 291, at the late election the total vote for Delegate was 618, more than doable the vote of 1876. It was thought that in 1876 nearly the whole vote of the county was polled, while at the recent election it is claimed that full 200 voters in the county did not go to the polls, and this statement tallies with the re turn of voters by the assessor. Hence it is apparent that our county has more than doubled in population during the past two years. Delegate Election. Election returns come in very slowly. A private dispatch received by one of Mr, Ainslie's friends in this city, claims that Oneida and Bear Lake counties gave Ainslie between 500 and 600 ma jority. This of course settles all doubts of his election, even if the north should pivo a large majority against him Idahoan. Ainslie's majority in the three north ern counties is 58. If the above report be true he is elected by nearly 1,000 majority in the Territory. NOTICE To Call and Settle.
