Pay and office. By an act of Congress approved 30th of May 1852, the salaries of the registers and receivers of our land of Ces were reduced from two thou Sand five Hundred dollars to be Hundred dollars and fees per annul which together i am in formed will not make their compensation under said Law More than about six Hundred and Fly dollars per year. The great distance Between a Large portion of our people. And the location of the land of Ces of the territory causes a Large amount of written applications for various info motion respecting their donation and Preemption claims for All of which useful and unavoidable correspondence no fees whatever Are allowed such services on the part of the officers Are entirely extra oficial and constitute no part of theirl respective duties. The legitimate duties of registers and receivers Are Well known to be Burden some and laborious these Are positions of weighty responsibility evidenced by the fact that. The receiver at Olympia gives approved Bonds to the Large amount of one Hundred and thirty five thousand dollars. It May readily be perceived that the Small compensation of six Hundred and Fly dollars per annul is entirely inadequate and disproportionate to the amount of services and responsibilities required of them. To the people it is of vital in Ernst that our land of Ces should be continued in charge of. Competent and responsible persons whose Payl should be suf client to reasonably compensate them for their services. I respectfully ask your attention to this subject for the purpose of memorializing Congress to provide such suitable Relief As the Case re quires. I Indian titles. It is highly important to the people of the Eastern and South Eastern portion of our territory that the Indian title to All lands Between South pass and the Columbia River should be extinguished. A treaty with the indians effecting this very desirable object would be the Best Means of averting the terrible calamity of an organized Indian insurrection if once brought about would Ibe far More Terri a in its consequences than the late sudden an unexpected uprising of the indians in Minnesota where it appears about eight Hun dred White people were cruelly slaughtered and a Large amount of pro cry was destroyed. Were Ian Indian War to breast out in the Valley of the Snake River or in any other part of our mining Region where the land is yet owned by the indians it would operate As a signal fire that would i Rouse to arms Ether indians and neighbor King territories. Our thinly settled population would be As suddenly surprised and As entirely unprepared to resist a general outbreak As were i the unsuspecting people of Minnesota. Should i such an unfortunate War of the races be again forced upon the people of our territory and in i All probability the con it would assume that of a bloody character resulting Nally in the extermination of the Savages. The news is daily coming to us that our exploring miners Are penetrating further and further searching for Gold in these hitherto unfree l Quested places. The occupancy of these lands the Indian title to which has not been extinguished induces them i to consider our miners and Farmers As intruders. L there is great danger that such reasoning upon the part of the Indian May at any Day be consid ered suf client cause for the commencement of hostilities. Protection to our miners develop ing the Mineral wealth of this Region requires the immediate attention of the National govern ment. The passage of an act by Congress pro Viding for the extinction of the Indian title to these lands will be the Best course to preserve the blessings of peace to our territory. I have i no doubt your application to Congress on this subject will meet with Success. 4 agricultural College. L the establishment of an agricultural College would secure permanent benefits to the people of the territory the importance of which must be apparent to All. I would therefore urge the 3 adoption of a memorial praying for Congress for j a Grant of land in Aid of such an institution. 3 military school. L the current history of the mighty events now. Transpiring teach us the importance of providing l our people with Mih tary education to preparer them for exigencies which May arise from inva Sion without or civil War within. The formation l at this time of a suitable school for military in i Striction would be of material advantage to the territory and the future state to Aid in such an 1 object Congress would undoubtedly be willing to i make a Grant of land. I i commend the subject to your favourable no i ties As eminently entitled to a Strong memorial l to that body. Railroad. The act of Congress approved july is 1862, i providing the necessary Means to secure the construction of a Pacic Railroad and Telegraph. Line merits the warmest congratulations of the people of the United states and More especially is it a matter of vital importance to the future convenience Prosperity and general welfare of the population the states and territories Vest of the a Blocky mountains. 1 will also be necessary for a line from Vancouver through Walla Walla to the Eastern part of the territory. The convenience and interests of the people would be greatly promoted by telegraphic lines being extended through the territory. And i have no doubt your favourable action on this sub Jeet will be duly appreciated by your cons Titu eats. insane Hospital. The last session of our territorial legislature very Wisel and humanely passed an act to pro vide for the Safe keeping of insane and idiotic per is wherein it is made the duty of the governor and auditor of the territory to provide by contract for the clothing care medical attendance and Safe keeping of All such persons in our territory. A i Ling the duties in accordance with the requirements of said act it a ords me great pleasure to be Able to inform you that with the co operation and Praia worthy assistance of r. M. Walker tha territorial auditor a favor Sable Cou tract in Mae wit the is of Charing let uncover for the info going 2? All such unfortunate persons. The Short distance Between the most Westerly Bend of the North Fork of the Columbia River i and the navigable Waters of puget sound is so Well known that it needs Only alluding to in order to secure your attention to the propriety of ask ing Congress for a reasonable appropriation to construct a military Road on the shortest practicable line connecting said water courses. The most important subject that claims your attention is the necessity of adopting the Best method of stopping at once and forever the atrocious murders robberies and plundering that have been committed annually by the Snake and other Triles of indians upon our valuable and in ter prising miners their pack trans conveying 1 goods and provisions to them while engaged i their Carduc us labors at a great distance from our Frontier settlements. More particularly has it become a positive necessity to protect the vast numbers of men women and children of our Over land emigrants from the Savage brutality of indians along the Road from South pass Down the Valley of the Snake to the Columbia River. It is a standing disgrace to ourselves and our country that for the last twelve years the Snake and other tribes of indians with their wicked associates and accomplices of while men have every year committed the most outrageous robber ies and murders upon our Overland emigrants. W Hite females have been carried into Indian Cap 1 Tirita and Are yet held in bondage by these Sav 1 Ages. For the Honor and credit race those White women ought to be immediately res cued. If a Correct list. Of the names could be obtained of All the White men women and children that have been murdered and those carried into Captivity during the last twelve years with a list of the thousands of horses mules cattle Money and other valuable property consisting in Many instances of everything the emigrants owned such a frightful statement of crimes would Star. The every Good Man in our country All would promptly enquire when Are All these wrongs and i cruelties to be Nally stopped when is our a travelled Road to be made free from molestation when Are these murderers and robbers to be punished for their past crimes when Are the Large herds of stolen horses. Mules and cattle with All other valuable property. To be rescued from the thieves and restored to their rightful j owners few of these murderers have yet been i punished and none of the property has yet been i recovered. The great question now is How Are i the lives of future emigrants and their property to be protected during the next ensuing years and for All time to come from the most Reli Able information it seems generally believed that the surest remedy will be found in the govern ment of the United states to establish a line of military posts along the Road leading from the South pass of the Rocky mountains near the South East Corner of this territory Down the Snake River Valley to the Columbia. To secure the establishment of said line of Mil itary stations i Hope your honorable body will unanimously memorable Congress for this Pur pose. While on this subject it is proper i should state that during the ant season general George Wright the commanding of cer of the Pacic department very considerate-1y issued an order directing All the military forces that could be spared to be sent up the Snake River Road to meet and protect the Overland emigrants. Gen. B. Alvord with col. Justin Steinberger of Walla Wall promptly executed the said orders by for warding Lieut. Col. Maury with a portion of Oregon cavalry who vigilant in and successfully guided said emigrants past the Salmon Falls and other dangerous places. It is highly Gratifying that these of cers have harmoniously and vigorously acted in concert and by their United exertions Large numbers of emigrants with their property have been protected. Notwithstanding the Diligence used by the of cers and men of the escorts it is to be lamented that several emigrants whose great hurry to get to the Salmon River and other Gold mines induced them to Rush Onward at a distance from these military escorts some of whom were Mur dered and robbed by the indians. Gold mines. The operations in the Gold districts of our territory during the Yea just closed have resulted in a manner most Gratifying. Experienced and skillful miners Are convinced that our Gold bearing Region is Rich with treasure. A Large number of those engaged in the mines did not arrive until late in the season Many of them Only in time to begin to Prospect. In the preparations necessary to a proper commencement of the work in some digging Many obstacles of Seri Ous hindrances were met with. Frequently Causim vexatious delays notwithstanding these and other disadvantages incident to the opening of new mines the yield of Gold has been astonishingly Large. The amount taken this year from the mines on the tributaries of the Columbia River is estimated Between eight and ten millions of dollars. Many promising mines were discovered late in the sea son some of which Are of the richest character. A Large number of persons Are wintering in the mines where new and thriving towns Are Spring ing up. These facts in connection with the fruits of this years labor furnish the strongest evidence of the great value of our mines. It is fair to presume that As eight or ten Mil Lions Hare been gathered in this years operations under such unfavourable circumstances More than double that amount will be collected next season and the annual yield hereafter will continue to increase at that ratio for years to come. What Eider action your honorable body May think proper to take in memorializing Congress to provide similar Aid for the construction of a Branch Railroad to the Columbia River or in favor of a Northern Road from Minnesota to puget sound will doubtless meet with the approbation of the people you represent. Fortifications. Land Forti cations together with an Iron Clad Monitor so necessary to the Protection of our fast increasing commercial business shipping towns lumber manufacturing and Coa mining establishments on puget sound and the Colum Bia River requires the immediate attention of the United states government therefore a proper sub act for your Early consideration for a me Morial to Congress. Telegraph. The advantages arising from the transmission of information across this continent by the Means of a Telegraph is duly appreciated by the people West of the Rocky mountains who take a Lively interest in the mighty contest going on in the Eastern states As Well As in commercial inter course. A Branch Telegraph line will in a few months be in practical operation from Sacramento Vancouver on the Columbia River. Thus the Southern Border of our territory will soon be placed in direct connection with our National Cap ital and All parts of the United states. The convenience and commercial advantages to be derived from direct telegraphic communication with All parts of our country May be easily secured to the people of this territory by the Pas Sage of an act granting a charter for the Exten Sion of said line from Vancouver to our Northern Boundary there to connect with a line from Brit ish Columbia and Victoria. Another charter fellow citizens i leave these views with you. It willbe my duty As Well As pleasure to co operate with you in in furthering t e interests of the people of this territory. Let us unite to elevate their moral social and political virtue. Let us teach the youth to Revere him whose name she hears that they May Ever be Loyal to that government which he contributed so largely to establish. Let us frown Down treason. 0r sym Pathy with it by our steady adherence to the government in its every Effort to suppress this rebellion. Let each one of us stand by the Constitution and Union As the Only Harbor of National safety. Thanking god we Are yet exem t from the ravages of War but feeling none the less the pangs of woe at our country is fiction she will yet ride successfully through the storm of rebel lion and survive the great crisis now being undergone. Out of this War America must emerge brighter More powerful and dearer to every Lover of human rights than Ever. God Grant that our most anxious Hopes May be realized.

Gentlemen of the Council and House of repro resent Tives of Washington territory. It is Well known to your honorable body that by the organic act the governor exercises no part of the Law making Power of this territory therefore there is not the same reason for t e executive to give his views of policy to the As Sembly As would seem to be Justi de in those states and territories in which that department has the duty to perform of assenting to or Dis approving legislative enactments notwithstanding it is expected the executive will give his views annually to the legislative Assembly upon mat ters pertaining to the Prosperity and general Wel fare of the people. The St subject of Public interest to which i desire to Call your attention will be the Codi Ca Tion and republication of our territorial Laws. This is the tenth session of the legislature of this territory and its statutes Are spread through As Many pamphlets As there have been sessions. Of the Laws passed shortly after the organization of the territorial government few copies were printed because at that Early period such was the sparseness of our population a greater num ber were not needed. Since then emigration has greatly increased our population and widely extended our settlements where several new counties have of late years been organized thus greatly increasing the number of Public of cers hence the copies of the Early session Laws have Long since been exhausted. In the Large area of country comprising the counties of Valla Walla Shoshone Nez Perce and Idaho there Are very few Complete sets of the Laws to be found. Prac timing attorneys Are a supplied and Are unable to procure them at any Price. Even the copy l now in the executive of be from necessity Wasi recently purchased from a private Library. In deed the Scarcity is such As to Render it impossible to procure copies for the use of members of the legislature courts Federal territorial and county of cers especially should All the of cers elected in the newly created counties be immediately provided with the Laws to guide them in the performance of their respective duties. The people should not be kept ignorant of the Law Sunder which they live. Should you think it be Pessary to direct a republication it will also be advisable to provide for a proper Codi cation or i revision 01 All of said acts in order to Render l them less complicated. The various alterations which have at various times been made in our statutes have increased the Dif culty of Ascer Taining what Laws remain unimpaired by subsequent enactments. The presence of a Large mass of printed matter contained in these several pamphlets Many of which have been so changed and amended that great confusion has been thereby produced. In revising and reprinting these Lassall obsolete and repealed acts or parts of acts 1 should be carefully excluded that the new Compi lation of the statutes May consist of such Laws i Only As remain in Force. Decisions 0f supreme court. 1 appended to the said new code or in a Sepa rate volume the decisions of the supreme court should also be published thus would our Public of cers the courts and the people be afforded the Opportunity of becoming acquainted with the l Law and its construction without which inform Tion Many Good and worthy citizens May inno gently become the violators of statutory enact ments the existence of which they Are not in formed. Convenience necessity and Justice to the people require proper legislative action at this time and i Trust your honorable bodies Willi not close your labors without adopting suitable measures upon this subject. L divorces. I should be Recreant to the duties i owe to society if i failed to Call your serious attention to the sad and immoral effects growing out of the readiness with which our legislative assemblies have heretofore annulled that most solemn con tract of marriage. Let me. Earnestly invoke you to stay the evils which result from the legislature \ granting divorces thereby destroying the sacred l responsibilities and duties of husband and wife merely upon the request or petition of one of the 1 parties. L without intending to trespass upon your Law making province permit me to suggest for your consideration the fact that the present Laws de Clare marriage to he a civil contract therefore All breaches or violation of its conditions Are proper subjects for the judiciary alone and not for legislative enactment upon one sided or cd Parte statements. The Low As it stands upon the \ statute books of the territory has conferred full jurisdiction upon the courts in All cases belonging to divorces which is the Only tribunal that can deliberately hear and examine All the witnesses on both sides of those unfortunate Domestic Dif l cuties of the parties applying for a dissolution of the marriage contract. The legislature Sel l Dom has the Opportunity of hearing any witnesses i even on the Side of the complaining party and never can have before them All the witnesses con l Nec cd with both parties especially so necessary l to the proper adjudication of these cases. It will also be necessary to remember that in divorces the legislature cannot decree or enter judgment for Alimony division of property belonging to the married parties nor legally decide whether the separated husband or wife shall lawfully continue the Possession care and control of their children. L the courts alone have full Power to Render ? Nal judgment and decree for Alimony division of family property and direct who shall have the care and control of the minor children. Many of the Legislatures of the states for several years past have positively refused to Grant any Divor Ces. Eminent lawyers Are agreed in the opinion that All divorces granted by Legislatures Are entirely unconstitutional and therefore null and void for the reason that no act of a legislature can destroy annul violate or set aside the said civil contract nor the sacred and religious obligations and Bonds mutually entered into by Man and wife at the solemnization of their marriage. It is at All times a very serious and delicate mat ter for any person or persons to interfere in any manner in the unhappy quarrels and family Dif cuties of Man and wife. There Are but few subjects brought before the courts of our country requiring to be treated with More deliberate care and caution than divorces. Whenever a. Legisla Tive body takes any action in cases of divorces it is not Imp Perly regarded As an infringement upon the legitimate province of the courts. For these reasons. I Trust your honorable body will rely refuse to interfere with the rights of bus band and wife. Applicants seeking separation should be directed to the courts of our territory where they can receive All the Relief and remedy for their grievances which the Laws of our coun try afford. Mail nouns. Our territory is rapidly lying up with Popula Tion the number of settlements Are constantly increasing and extending Over localities but a Short time ago familiar Only to the red Man.

Surveys.
