Only one Chlo! Opposes the Conaollad
fetOKANE Falls, March 11.— Major
ft. D. Gwjtiir, Indian agent st Colville,
arrived here Sunday. lie expresses
himself well pleased with the result of
the council with the various Indian tribes
nnder his charge, held at Colville ageuey,
Saturday, March 4. Major Gwydir
opened the conference, explaining that
by uniting under one government the
the Indians would become a strong
people once more ; that it was the desire
of Washington and all friends of their
race that they should abandon 'he old
habits of having oach chief the possessor
of almost unlimited power. He ex
plained the composition ol the court to
be submitted for the old form of govern
Moses, Joseph, Whistle, Poo-Som,
Barnaby, 0 Kid Pa Kin and other chiefs
•poke in favor of consolidation. The
only objector was Sholaakin, chief of
the lower San Pnclts, who suid his peo
ple had nothing in common with the
other tribes ; he and his people wanted
no aid from the government, or any
Agent Gwydir informed the council
that Washington would not allow the
obiectious of the man to etaod in the
Way, and that the wish of the majority
'Would be oarried out.
Washington'» Gift to the Nation.
"What gift will the people of Wash
ington make to the nation in roturn ior
the great favor ?
"They will present tho sisterhood of
states a prosperous, enterprising common
wealth with a population considerably
over 200,000. Iu my report to the
interior department I estimated the
population at 185,000. This was in
September, 1888. Our population is
now over 200,000, and bcfoie the end of
tho year immigration will run it up to
-210,000. The people of Washingtoo
will ever remember the year 1889 as one
of the greatest in the history of the
commonwealth, as a year of admission to
statehood, of a mild winter, and of great
progress. The uew state is exeoedingly
prosperous. It has developed with
phenomenal rapidity, and the growth has
been steady and substantial. Last year
onr taxable property looted up about
984,000,000 ; this year it will come
dose to 8100,000,000. The people that
•re coming among us to make homes art
people of means, who have well defined
ideas of what they wnut. Home take up
land and farm fur a living ; others go
into busiuess, and all manage to find
"How large a legislature do you think
-the uew state will need ?"
"One of about ninety members, the
nine number as Orepou has. The terri
torial legislature, which has thirty-six
members, is too small for a state."—
New York, March 10. —The World

A steamer arrived at this port yesterday,
bringing news of a bloody battle between
Legitime's and Hippolyte,! forces, and a
masacre by the victors. Captain Frazer
brought a copy of La Patrie, the
Hippolyte organ, published February 23,
at Gonaircs, containing the following
account ol the battle and of the massacre
•t Grand Baline :
The Hippolyte forces in this city were
commanded by General Mum Point and
Jean Meseraus, Legitime's army betan
the attack on tho outposts euriy iu
February. They were repulsed several
times, but finanly succeeded in canyin
them, aud a few days later were masters
of the city, aud General Meseraus' sword.
Legitime's men were so elated over
tbuir success that they immediately
began to pillago the town. Drucken
soldiers shot ona of the prisoners for
some trilling matter. This was a signal
for a general outbreak on the part of the
soldiers. They rushed at the prisoners
shooting and stabbing them right and
left, ths prisoners begging hard and
piteously for mercy, but their cries were
laughed at and the killing went ou,
quarter being allowed to none. Never
before had such a pitiable sight been
presented. The murdered ntcu lay
huddled about iu scores. Some were
frightfully bached aud mutilated, many
of the blood frenzied soldiers havirg run
amuck even among the corpses, plunging
the swords again and again into the
bodies of the slaiu.
Geoeral Meseraus tried to Btay the
slaughter, but the soldiers laughed at
him aod warned him not to interfere if
he wished to live. When a lack of
victims stayed the botchers they robbed
tho 4<o*d md looted and burned the
town, iïrarly tho whole place, says
La Patrie , is iu ruin*. Captain Frazer
thinks the city mart have been burned
hvtwten Febtuury 28 and March 1.

Fight of ths U. P. and N. P. in Jefle
Helena, March 13, Special —The
Uuion Pacific Railroad Company has
now about 500 men at work in Jefferson
canyon. They are protected by tin
sheriff and arc strong enough to hold
the canyon. Tho opposing forces tire
camped ia sight of each other. The
Union Pacifie has pickets scattered about
over the mountains to give wanting it
the Northern Pacific makes an effort to
surprise their graders and attack them.
There is plenty of room in the canyon
for the tracks of both roads, but tin
Uniou Pacific has the pick of the grad
ing and the Northern Pacific, if it has to
take what is left, will have (if work in
rocky ground. A corps of Union Pa
cifio engineers has gone into Missouri
river canyon to revi.-o the lines already
surveyed, pro paratory to putting a
larger force of graders at work on its
proposed line from Dillon to Helena vie
Rodder aud Jefferson vullejs and
A report has just come in from Boul
der that the forces of the II. P. and N.
P. R. R., have conic into collision am
that s watchman of the (7. P„ was killed
at Jefferson canyon.
A recont circular from the general
land office has instructed the local land
officers that final proof in pre emptioo
and commuted homesteads are to bt
made much fuller by them than hereto
fore, aud new blanks for that purpose
have been furnished. Formerly the
local land offices would make the pre
scribed examination, properly certify
thereto, and the papers would be tor
warded to the commissioner, wl.o mad
examination to see that everything had
been properly red taped, when patent
would be issued. Much of this verifica
tion work, uuder this circular is left to
the local officers, the intention being to
expedite (lie issuance of patents. It
many cases this .will bo ths result ; but.
occasionally, where former proof made
has bceu rejected and the party has been
ordered to make sn other publication
and proof, the lapse of time has removed
the witnesses to o her sections, sometimes
celestial, and it is a difficult matter for
new proof to be properly made. In a
casa like this, about the only way is to
appeal from tho decision of the com
missionrr, when the claimant stands a
good show of getting his patent without
further trouble, the general land office,
apparently, hoing satisfied that it save
trouble to pursue thut course, ignore the
appeal and issue patent on the first
Not content with forbidding the
voraoious but mild eyed town cow the
liberty of the streets and the citizens'
garden, the city fathers of McMinnville
have risen to the necessity of the occa
sion aud passed a "thicken law." Uy
the provisions of this ordinance domestic
fowls turned out to scratch for a living
are deemed a nuisance aud the owners of
such fowls are peremptorily ordered to
shut them up or pay a fine. The people
of that wide awake town are to be c m
gratulated. There is but one thing
more annoying the villagers than the
neighborly cow, and that is the bustlin
busy hen, with a brood of hungry chicks,
that proves, before the owner of the
garden is up in the morning, her ability
