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.

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
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.

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
last year, will receive
tion more quickly than in the old
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.
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
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.
