Washington, Oet. 1 7 The annual re
port of Govt ruor West, of Utah territory
estimates the population at neatly 00.
000 and the assessed taxibl-j property at
$ 3j,5-(;.),S05. Commercial affairs are in
a prosperous condition, agricultural pro
ducts abuudant and of oxeelent grade,
the stock interests flourishing and the
mining outlook promising. The govern
or recommends the repeal of that part of
the alien land law that relates to mines.
To the discussion of the subject of state
hood for Utah the governor devotes con
siderable space. He says the movement
was inaugurated by the leaders of the
Mormon people and their representatives
alone took part in the convention. He
reviews past ex; rtssions
a very recent date in opposition to the
federal law and says: "Before clothing
them with sovereignty should not con
gress wait until tluir laudible professions
hive had time to ripen into praisewoi thy
works; until the conduct of the ptop'c
and the legislation of the territory in con
sonance with their profession, are
brought into harmony with the general
views or the country, and the territory
placed in the advanced position it would
have attuned bat for the past attitude
of those whii arc now asking the boon of
stetehood? It is more than probable
that the question of Utah as a practical
factor in national affairs will be con
sidered in connection with her npoliea

political parties, so far as the past hi.-t.Ty
of the people is concerned, can lay claim,

A Modest Millionaire.
In his former days of prosperity tho per
sonal habits of Mr. Henry Vi;ird and his
family wero of th most modest character.
A friend who ebw the family at the opera
describes tho scene as foliovrs: "In looking
about me at the new opera houne the other
evening it is the thinj to look about you up
there; the boxe3 would be awfully cut up if
you did not rake them all over I noticed
across tho aisle from where I sat (mine was
only a poor $5 orchestra chair) a family of
three father, mother and daughter. I was
particularly struck by the plainness of their
appearance, contrasted with the glint and
glitter of the rest of the house. They were
well enough dressed, the father in evening
suit, the mother in a white orepo shawl and
bonnet; the daughter, a fresh looking girl in
her teens, wore a brown silk dress and a black
folt hat, trimmed with feathers, set square
upon her head. She evidently felt the cold
winds that rushed through the lower part of
tbe Louse, and had pulled across her shoul
ders a white worsted breakfast shawl. J
don't think that tharo is anything in the way
of a wrap much uglier than one of theso
crocheted breakfast shawls; but I liked the
girl's independence in wearing it. I will
wager a ?10 bill that there was not another
in tbe house, and, what is more, not another
young lady in the house who would have
dared to wear ono.
"In chatting with a friend between the acts
I said, for want of something better to say,
I wonder if that girl wears u breakfast shawl
to tho opera because she likes it, or becausa
she can't afCord a cloak.' He looked and
laughed. '7 hat girl could afford to wear
twenty opera cloaks if she wanted to. Don't
3'ou know who she is?' 'No,' said I. 'Is she
anybody?' 'Well, her father is; that big,
Gdrman looking maa sitting by her side is
her father, and hi5 name is Henry Villard,
and his business tiie Northern Pacific rail
road, as you nra probably aware.' For once
I saw a millionaire who did not flaunt Lis
millions, who sat iu au orchestra seat rather
than in a box, whose wife was not sown with
diamonds, and whose daughter couid wear a
worsted breakfast shawl to the opera." A
millionaire who, together with his family,
could be as modest as this in the days of his
prosperity will find few who will not wish
him the vc ry host success in these days of Lis

THE CROW RESERVATION AND THE

Nothing so ni'ilds a savage into a civilized

The blanket is hisi-purublo from tlio idea of
the wild Indian. It is tho emblem of snv
agery. Indueo him to lay e.-iiio tbe blanket
and rejjlaeo it with cont r.r.d pantaloons and
ho is eiviiiiivl. This u co li no that thoyare

blanket iu tbe loft hand and usi.s tho ax or

This is tho explanation tho Indian gives of

A Cane: cf Murderers Wiped Out.V3
CiiaULKStox. W. Va., Oet. 17. A
courier this moniitttr brought in the news
that a mob of citizens and officers who i
are after the murderers of lie v. Thomas
P. Iiyau, who was shot near Walton,
Roane county, this state last Thursday,
killed George 31. Duff, jr., Friday, and
took Robert Ford, together with Jack
Tho Salmon II eM in Arersloa.
The fishermen in Scotland declare that the
salmon's tail is pointed "sineo Loki became a
salmon, and ites caught by that appendage
while Slipping through a net sit for him by
t the gods." Curious to say, in some parrs of
Scotland the sa:aion is held in great aversion,
its name not even being mentioned. Thus in
certain districts it is known as the "so-and-so's
C-di," and in others as "the beast." Chi
ttr.is ci h::::ger has iinv n him to work.
.-cry famiiy of tho A'iBaraons or Crows,
am- ng whom the writer sojourns, during tho
pn; t yeitr has lived at its own hour) and cul-
vutrd its own crop. Tho lands are now bc::.g
allotted, but tho system of separation ui.d
family ownership is already in operation under
lh efficient managoment of tho agent, a dis
tinguished Mississipp-an. Iiach family pos
sesses a cabin, a roothouso for winter pro
visions, a corral for horses, and a wire
inelceure for cultivatim, nr.d in this tln.-y
vc rmsed corn, potatoes, gram, melons and
vegetables, tho government furnishing ail
seed and tools.
It waa unkind to call them Crows. There
is little enough poetry In tho real Indian,
how noblo soever his red brother of romance
may ba, and .".urely it is unkind to take from
iim that little he has. The Absaraea, tlieir
own name for themselves, is quite dili'orent
from the ill famed bird wa call a crow. It is
a small blue hawk, of graceful poiso and swift
flight, common upon the prairie.
The Crow reservation is perhaps the largest
and most valuable possessed by any tribe.
Lying 200 miles along the Northern Pacific
railroad in Montana, and extending south
ward to tho Wyoming line, k is traversed by
many clear mountain streams with fertile
bottoms, and bordered on the south and west,
by mountains rich in minerals. The Crows
have ever been friends of tho whitos, abetting
them iu their long wars with the Sjioux, thj
Nez Perees and other northwestern tribes.
They are rieh in land, ponies and cattle.
The pony and dog .are part of tbe Indian
family. The pony is tho properly of tho
buck; he never walks. The dog is the sequi
tur of tho squaw. I have seen as many as
eleven at the heels of one Indian woman.
They are mongrels of every breed, domestic
and wild, are poor and worthless, but eat at
the same table aud sleep in tho same bed with
their erect kinsmen. Uotii men and women
are expert riders. I have seen children 3 and
4 years old furiously racing the half broken
Though there are many aged people in tho
Ab.saraca tribe, I have never seen one -whoso
hair was perfectly white. It is often streaked
with gray und sometimes quite grizzly in the
very old. When it becomes gray it is often
a fancy with them to paint it rd. The hair
grows long upon the heads of the men as
well as the women, and is neve v cut save as
an evidence of mourning. They wear no
beard, plucking out each hair as it comes
upon tiie face. They carry suspended from
the neck by a string a pair of broad tweezers
of their own construction for this purpose,
and the young buck in arranging his toilet
examines his chin carefully iu thj mirror to
be sure no offending cap-ilia is there. I 'rob
ably from generations of such rough usage
tho beard grows sparsely when undisturbed.
There is mi imbecile in the tribe who has
lacked cither vanity or brains to pluck his,
and after a growth of forty j-ears it is but a
sparse stubble of still black hair.
But here is a marvel to run and troubles
our theory of heredity. Tho children of this
tribe, among whose ancestors no song was
ever sung, aro easily taught to sing. Thelittla
girls in tho agency or mission schools sing the
Gospel.hymns its sweetly aud correctly as the
Sunday school children of the south. As their
clear, sweet voices ring out on tho twilight
air iu the familiar melodies of "Sweet Iiy
and By," or "What llust It ba Thc-rel" tho
writer easily imagines himself ti,000 miles
array, listening to children among whom are
blue eyed uiul golden haired fairits, instead
of theso little Absaraca maiden-, with coal
black eyes and hair of jet. Crow Agency
