He was accom panied by two lazy tribesmen, named George Peopeo and Philip Andrews, lie sides James McLaugTilin, Indian In spector, and a half-breed named Edward Reboin, the official interpreter. The party arrived by private conveyance from Nezperce, Idaho. The object of Chief Joseph's visit at this time was to see what show he and his tribe had of regaining a foothold in this beautiful valley. This action is also the result of a visit which the wiley old chief paid to Washington about two months ago, when he asked permission to leave the Colville reserva tion and take up his residence again in the Wallowa valley. He made a strong plea to the government officials stating that it was the determination of his tribes men to settle down to farming as well as grazing. On the strength of this flimsy plea the secretary of the interior directed Indian Inspector McLaughlin to accom pany Chief Joseph to this valley and there inspect the land to which the chief and his tribesmen desired to return, and the officials also instructed Mr. Mc Laughlin that great care should be taken to select land adaptable to agriculture rather than grazing. There are about 130 in the band, which includes men, women and childreu. Old Joseph wants about 20,800 acres of land. He claims that the climate at the Colville reservation, iu Washington, is too cold, and furthermore, he is desirous of living again near the scene of his childhood days, and also to be near the remains of his father, who is buried at the forks of the river about three miles above the town of Wallowa. After remaining here all day Saturday the party went on to Joseph and while there also visited the lake which the chief is desirous of having included in the large tract of land which he asks the government to purchase for him. From what information we could obtain from the old chief, while conversing with him it seems that he has misinformed the of ficials at Washington jn regards to the progress made by the settlers in the cul tivation of the land of this valley, he having informed them that the valley was sparsley settled and very few im provements, when in fact it is thickly settled, and has as highly cultivated farms, and handsome residences as can be found anywhere in the Willamette valley. It is preposterous to even dream of turning the results of so much labor over to a band of lazy, shiftless Indians. Petitions have been circulated and signed by all the citizens protesting against this contemplated outrage and we trust the government will act for the best interests of the citizens.—Enterprise (Ore.) Bulle tin. if a . j Big Libel Suit That the literary pathway is not all one of roses has been demonstrated again by the filing of a suit Thursday by Angus Sutherland against Mr. and Mrs. L. W. Hntton for $25,000 damages for defama tion of character. The trouble arose over the publication of Mra. Hutton's book, "The Coeur d' Alenes, or A Tale of the Modern Inquisi tion iu Idaho," wherein that gifted authoress has taken occasion to express opinions and make assertions regarding a number of well known citizens of this county. The particular language to which Mr. Sutherland objects, and which he asserts is false and libelous, is the fol lowing: "This man Sutherland has a past record that may account for his being chosen as an officer of the law and order league. In 1884 Sutherland had a brother living in the southern part of the state, who re fused to pay a man his wages who had worked for him. The man shot Suther land's brother dead, and this Angus Sutherland, the great law and order dem agogue of the Cour ^ Alenes, led a mob and lynched the man who had shot his brother for refusing to pay him his hon estly earned wages." As n rule libel suits do not result in aiding the plaintiff financially, and we know noth' ng of the merits of this one. We will risk the assertion however, that if Sheriff Sutherland has as strong a case as he would .have had in charging Mrs. Hutton with murdering the English language in the extract quoted lie will have no trouble iu securing a judgment for the full amount claimed.—Wallace press.
