Vancouver Independent OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver. Clarke County, Wash ing-ton Territory. The Heart's Deception. He still, el), yearning heart, be still; I will not to your teachings hark; For when no joy my pulses thrill, You tell me all the world is dark. While reason whispers all is fair As when no sorrow tilled my breast, That summer's fruits are rich and rare, And earth is still In beauty drest. You chill me with your dark forebodings, And tell all is gloom without; Yet when I sit in reason's teachings, I And that you are prone to doubt. Ah. heart, you are an erring preacher; 1 will no more confide in you; Wisdom s'.iall henceforth be my teacher, The life w ill wear a sunnier hue. All joy from earth has never fled, Though youth and summer must depart E'en when the flowers we love are dead. "Pis winter only in the heart. A Danish Legend. Once upon a time a Danish knight was about to be married to the prettiest dam sel in all Denmark, and, according to the custom ...

A correspondent of the Oregonian at Yakima under date of Dee. 5 writes thai "a council waa held at Fort Sim ooe .mi the Ist mat., and three Indians were dispatched to Moses with papers ordering him to come on the reserva tion immediately.

A company of volunteers is being formed here for the purpose of mak ing an attack on Moses at an early day unless he removes to Fort Sim eoe forthwith. They propose to pay their own expenses and operate in dependently. They bave enlisted under Captain Simmons."' The government will hardly sanc tion such methods of dealing with the Indians.

What Came of a Surprise Tarty.

It was one of those sporadic cases of crime Which bailie the theories of students of social science. No less than thirteen persons were concerned in it, and they • lianded themselves together under the leadership of a man who had hitherto borne a good reputation. The affair wus managed with much secrecy, snd but for the timely awakening of the conscience of one of the conspirators, might have 1 proved disastrously successful. This 1 ' . conspirator «as a youth who, though M easily led astray, was not without noble ' impulses.

<*.-.'.-.ihaek* nn.'. Absolute Money. The existing greenback, it may be c'aiiued, is worth as much as a national bank note of corresponding denomina tion, but it is to be answered that the greenback, is it exists, does not pre tend tv he "absolute money."' It is a promise of the United .States to pay money, and there is no sane iinaneial m.in who does not know that it is a promise to pay coin, or something that directly represents coin. A greenback is good, and only good, because the country accepts it as a pledge of gold nr silver. The precious metals have be v accepted, the world over, as the basis of currency, and w hen men talk n! out money they invariably talk about that which has its basis in coined metals. A paper dollar always repre sents n gold or a silver dollar. Through out the long period during which specie payments have been suspended in the United States, the value of bank-notes nn i of greenbacks lias been sustained by the faith that ultimately—looner nr later eve...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY. JANUABY 2, 1879. Attain In Yaklua*. In another column will be found a communication from a citizen in Yak ima City, giving an account of the movements of citizens against the murderers of the Perkins family, and the capture of Moses. The citizens of that locality, as well as Wilbur, think that Moses has been treacher ous, and would not do as he agreed. Thus far he has tilled his promises to Gen. Howard, and kept the peace, not firing a shot. Moses claims that when he was captured he was on an expedition after the Perkins murder ers, and would have brought them in if not thu9 prevented. We have obtained two days later news from there, through military sources, which throws light upon the matter. An officer was sent up to investigate the whole matter not long since, and he obtained from Fa ther Wilbur his side of the story. Wilbur says that a council was held in Yakima; Moses oflered to assist in the capture of the murderers if citi zens would form a c...

[CONTINI El> FUOM KIItST I'AOE.] all half-breed Indians who pay a property tax, are legal voters. At all elections for school officers, women who pay a property tax are legal voters, and are eligible to any office under the school system of the Ter ritory. IXI'IAN AFFAIBS. Within the past two years public opinion in this Territory lias radically changed on the Indian question. There is now a very strong feeling against the reservation system. This, to a great extent, has been created by the Indian outbreak in Idaho last year ami in Oregon during the present year. There is also a feel ing ol' insecurity in the minds of set tlers, especially in Eastern Washing ton. They are surrounded by discon tented Indians, who may any time and with little warning commence hostilities. Many of these Indians were in full sympathy with the hos tiles of Oregon during the recent outbreak in that State, ami some of them actually joined the Bannacks. The opinion very generally prevails that, had the h...
