Judge HeWltt Passes Away at the
Age of 82.
His Place in the History of “Insh
lngton—Appolnted Chlet J us
uce bv Lincoln.
Judge 0. C. Hewitt, one of Olympia’s
earliest pioneers, chief justice of the terri
tory and the father oded Fellowship in
Washington, closed his eyes in death last
evening at 7:30 at his home in East Tum—
water, and ended an exemplary career of
eighty—two years as a citizen and a man. 1
He was one of the early pioneers who hold
marked places in the history of Washing
ton,one ofthose who crossed the plains,seek
ing newer lields and newer hopes. He was
a man of sterlingintegrity and honesty and
was in this a peer to any in the state. He
acted always in accordance with his con
victions, regardless of the opinions of any
party or individual, and his many good
traits of character were prominent.
Judge Hewitt was born in Oppingham,
Montgomery county, N. Y., in 1809. He
afterwards moved to Dundee, 111. 1111852
'he crossed the plains and settled at Mil
waukee, Or. In 1852 he came to Olym in,
and later removed to Seattleand Port lVFad
ison. He was a carpenter by trade and be
cause of superior ability in making ox
yokes, which were conceded to be the best
on Puget Sound, received the title of “Ox
Y9K?" Hewitt.
When the Indian war broke out Judge
Hewitt organized a company of volunteers
in Seattle, arming and equip
ping them at his own expense.
He then proceeded to Slaughter and buried
the settlers who were so unmercif‘ully
massacred by the hostile Indians. Here
he built a. Stockade, and left camp to meet
Lieut. Slaughter, who was coming from
Steilaeoom with a company, Hewitt and
Slaughter having Previous y arranged to
meet each other. ’lhe men were tired and
‘footsore, and instead of seeking safety
within the Stockade three miles distant, as
Judge Hewitt urged, they camped for the
night. Slaughter and Hewitt were sitting
opposite each other when the first volley
came, and Slaughter was killed instantly,
falling over into Hewitt’s aron The next
morning the little army returned to Seattle,
upon which Judge Hewitt had been in
formed by two trusty lndian scouts. an at
tack would be made that night. Hetht
informed the Seattle citizens of this, and
also applied to CaFt. (lanswort, of the
sloop Decatur. their ying in Seattleharbor,
who placed his men at Hewitt’s disposal.
At 1 o’clock that morning the hostiies de
scended killing several citizens, but the
preparations already made saveda much
more serious lot-s.
After'the warhe [fracticed law, and con
ducted a case for l\‘ eigs & Gawley against
the Pacific Mail Steamship company,
which concerned the sinking of the tug
Resolute. He carried the case to the
United States supreme court and won it.
Shortly after President Lincoln,‘ in 1861,
appointed him chief justice of the terri
tory, succeeding J. C. McFadden. Judge
McFadden hesitated about turning over the
records of the court. believing that, he was
entitled to serve the four veers for which
he had been appointed. The members of
the bar of the county were calledfwtcgether
and Hewettrand McFadden submitted the,
question as to their ri hts’to fill the ofii’ee‘. ‘
The but decided that Judge Hewitt should
take the bench, and Judge McFadden
gracefully retired. ‘
After retiring from the bench, for a short
time he took an active Ipart in politics, in
0p using the election Se ncius Garlielde as
defegate to congress. Judge Hewett advo
cated the election of Marshal Blinn, an in<
dependent candidate, and the opposition
to Garfield was continued until McFadden
was. elected. ‘_

having passed an act removing the capital
to Vancouver. The supreme court de
cided the act to be invalid, and Olympia
remained the capital. Judge Dennison
was one of the attorneys in the case.
Upon his appointment as chiet 'ustice
he moved to Olympia, and, after hoading a
few terms of court as judge of the second
judicial district. went to Illinois and re«
turned with his family. Lincoln reap
pointed him and he served until 1869,being
succeeded by B. F. Dennison, of this city.
After continuing practice for a few years,

Judge Hewitt.w:ts called the father of
Odd Fellowship in \Vashington, being a
charter member of the first lodge estab
lished in the territory, which was organ
ized April 10, 1851. About 1855 the lodge
surrendered its title. Judge Hewitt was
instrumental in reclaiming it. and estab
lished Olympia lodge No. 1. He was once
senior grand warden of the grand lodge of
Oregon. Helms been an active Odd Fel
low ever since and was in good standing.
He was 82 years of age, ant probably the
oldest Odd Fellow by ten years in the state.
Fornearly three years he has been suf
fering with Bright's disease, and has not
been out of the house for over a year. The
direct cause of death was pneumonia. His
chief regret during his illness was that
he had not moved to Olympia in order
that he could note the improvements. His
daughters and friends kept him constantly
informed, and from his window he
watched the growth of Westside.
The funeral will occur tomorrow from
his late home in East Tumwater. Itev.
Mr. Hoagland will conduct the services,
which will be under the direction of the
Odd Fellows. Ason and two daughters
survive him.

“mat the “Thunder-er” says on
the Subject--'l‘ull Talk From
a Big Newfispaper.
LONDON, Oct. 27.——The Times this morn
ing says Minister Egan’s request for an ex
planation from the Chilean government is
natural and proper, but the expression of
indignation is a little premature. The am 1
count from an American point of view‘
leaves it extremely doubtful whether the
paid servants of the Chilean government
are guilty. Until America is able to prove
this, she has no right to prefer demands in
a. blustering and threatening manner.
Riots are not unknown altogether under
Ithe benignant sway of the Washington
government. Chile might justly recall the
fact that Minister Egan openly enrolled
himself among the partisans of the de
feated president, adding appreciably to the
difficulty of reaching a settlement. She
might also remind America of the New
Or eans affair, for which Italy got little sat
isfaction. The Times concludes bydoubt
ing whether, apart from the Irish, any
large section of Americans approve of
bluster toward acountrgv not too kindly
treated in its trouble, an too weak for a
selfvrespecting adversary to strike without
tliegreatest relugtance.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 27.—-—The cabinet meet
ing today was attended by all the mem
bers except Secretary Foster. It is sup
posed the session was mainly devoted to
the discussion of the Chilean situation and
the reparation demanded of Chile by Min
ister Egan. _
The Woods Full of Refugees Dy—

[Relief for the Famine-Stricken Dis
tricts Declllmdnlmzlnesn and
“mm of Money.
LONDON, Oct. 27.——The Daily News this
morning has a dispatch from' St. Peters
l)urg which says the minister of the in
terior in declining the proposition ofa
‘deputation of rich Moscow merchants to
form a society for the relief of the victims
of the famine stricken districts declared
that anybody attempting to visit the dis
tricts where famine prevailed, for any such
object as that described would be arrested.
The immigration society prohibited the
organization of relief committees at cer
tain points. This is supposed to be due to
the fact that reliance on the .‘government
for relief will have a bad moral effect on
peasants who would decline to work on
the relief railway roads, and spend the
money they received in drink. They are:
too lazy to sow corn. while the ready cash ‘
of a famine fund is procurable.
VIENNA, Oct. 27.—-—A dispatch from Rus
sia tells of anti~jewish riots in various
places; Vln Thernigofi' fifty Jews were
killed and one hundred wounded. The
forests are full of refugees dying of starva
tion. The czar sent a commission to en
quire as to the facts.

Dillon arrived here today. The two noted
members of parliament were met by a dep
utation and an enormous Crowd 01 people.
The procession was headed bya brass band
and escorted by a strong detachment of po
lice. There was no disturbance. O‘Brien
during his speech at the assembly rooms
said he was willing give fair play to his op
ponents, but added that he would not yield ‘
to “brickbats and dynamite bombs.” Con- ;
tinning, O’Brien said they (the I’arnellites) ‘
might blow up the office ofa newspaper
representing the views ofthe McCarthyites.
“but,” he exclaimed, “they cannot destroy
the spirit which animates that party.”
As soon as the convention closed its pro— l

the city, still accompanied by the proces

The Tnal of the Itata—Some
International Law.
Lawyer Stephen M. White’s Ideas
on the Subject—llls Construction:
or :1 Neutral Power.
Los ANGELES. 0111., Oct. 27.—1 n the Itata
case yesterday District Attorney Cole an
nounced the case of the government was ‘
in and Stephen M. White, on behalf of the
three accused persons, rose and moved that
thejury be instructed by the court to re
turn a verdict of not guilty. White quoted
international law and contended that the
United States was a neutral power in the
late Chilean war, and that there were two
belligerent powers .in Chili-the govern
ment and the insurgents. If that be so,
then either power had a perfect right to
trade in the ports of a neutral power, to
purchase provisions or contraband of war,
only that in the purchase of the latter, the
people of the neutral power, who sell them
must take them to sea at their own risk.
If the United States was a neutral power in
i this Chilean war, then the Itata had a per
‘ fect right in San Diego harbor and off San
Clemente. It the insurgents were not bel
ligerents then this vessel was a pirate ship
and should be dealt with under the pirate
laws and the indictment would be dis
missed because it is framed under the
wrong section. Today the counsel for the
government will argue in opposition to the

FRESNO, 0111., Oct. 27.—-oppositinn to the
Chinese in this county which has a penna
nent Chinese population of 3,003 has taken
every serious turn. The railroad com
pany has discharged some white section
men substituting Chinese. Saturday night
the whole of Chinatown at Madera was de
stroyed by fire, evidently incendiary. More
‘than a hundred coolies were made home
less. At Selma Saturday night about
fifty workmen visitedvthe Chinese section}
hands and ordered them to leave by mid
night; but the officers interfered. Asa
matter of precaution they were brought
here and last night the house which they
had vacated was set on fire. Saturday
morning the streets of Selma were found
placarded with posters urging the driving
out the Chinese, reciting the fact that
within a week twenty white men had been
replaced at that point, with Chinese, by
the railroad company, which meant the
loss of $12,030 a year to business and kept
driving white men to enforced idleness.
A Blood Thu-sly Document Circu

Europeans and Americans ‘
to Be Killed. ‘
SHANGHAI, Oct. 2]. The anti-foreign
movement continues in Hunan province
and among the rebel chiefs are many of the
viceroy’s magistrates and generals. The
government seems to be unable to prevent
the spread of the uprising and its propa
ganda against foreigners. The followingis
the substance of an important document
which has been displayed on the walls ev
erywhere: “Inhabitants who are anxious
of preventing a violation of our country,
let us prepare a plan of defense, so that ev
ery district may take up arms and assem
qle its forces. Every great district should
furnish 20,000 men, every lesser district
16,000 and every small district 10,000, Let
us chase from our provinces the devil
mouthed European pigs. Having power,
money and men and being brave, let us
destroy the enemy. It will be much better
to burn their dwellings, churches and mis
sion buildings than to confiscate them for
the purpose increasing our revenue. We
will extinguish fires dangerous to Chinese
dwellinis. Let us stamp on the cattle’ of
Jesus, t e heavenly pigs. Let us punish
the converted Chinese, the traitors, and let
us banish the families of the guilty on the
‘ ships of the American fleet.”
