STORY OF THE FAMOUS
OLD OREGON TRAIL
A Narrative of the Wilson Price ifunt Expedition
in 1811-12 and the "Great Migratipn" Into
Oregon Country, in 1852-3
"By Walter E. Meachen, Pros, of Old Oregon Trail Aasoc.
(Contlnuod from Inst weok.)
Tho route now lod up tho Durnt
rivor from tho present slto of Hunt
ington to whoro Durkuo now stnndB
and on across tho hills to tho Pow
dor rlvor valtoy at tho prosont site
of Dakor which was reached by tho
party on Docomber 28. Tho party
continued on across tho valley, pass
ing tho prcsont silo of Haines and
North Powdor. Mount Hunt, ono
ot tho highest peaks in tho Balsloy-
Blkhoru rango was namod attor Mr.
It was In tho vicinity ot North
Powder that tho wlfo of Plorro Dor-
Ion gavo birth to her baby. Tho
main party kept on whllo Dorlon
remained with his wlfo nnd children
In tholr crudo camp and attondod
her in hor sickness.
On Docomber 30, tno party ar
rived in tho Grnndo Rondo valley
and found six lodges ot Shoshonos
camped In tho vicinity ot tho pros
ont town ot Union. On Dccombor
31st, Dorlon and his family caught
up with tho main party. It Is fit
ting nt this tlmo to pay trlbuto to
tho Indian wlfo ot Dorlon, who had
shared tho hardships of tho droary
march with as great fortltudo as tho
niou, though sho was far advancod
In hor pregnancy. Sho oxhlbltod a
forco of charactor In many of tho
trying situations faced by tho party,
worthy of ono In a much hlghor
walk of llfo.
Tho pralsos ot Sacajawoa, tho In
dian woman, who accompanlod
Lowls nnd Clark on tholr Journoy
across tho, continent aro horaldod In

of Sacajawoa. Tho party spoilt Now
Yoar's day with tho Indians toasting
on horso and dog meat and celebrat
ing tho day lit tho host manner pos
slblo undor tho circumstances.
Tho following day tho party
struck out across tho Jlluo Moun
tains passing noar tho prosont lo
cation ot Iarando. Tho Journoy
across tho mountains was very dif
ficult and todlous, tho snow being
waist doop and tho weather vory
Tho child ot Plorro Dorlon died on
tho trip across tho mountain. On
January 8, tho camp ot Sclatogas
on tho Eu-O-tal-la of Umatilla was
roachod, which was noar tho prosont
slto ot Pondletou.
Thoso Indians had brass kottlos,
axos, tea kottlos nnd other irnplo-
monts showing that thoy had com
munications with whllo tradors.
Tholr horses and dogs wore bought
for food. A blanket, a knlfo or a
halt pound ot blue beads bought a
horso. Thoso Indians did not oat
horso flesh, but foastod on oik and
door moat, but thoy astcod such a
high prlco for it that tho whlto raon
woro forced to content thomsolvcs
with a bit ot horso and dog meat.
Tho Umatilla abounded with boa-
vor and tho Indians wero Induced to
trap this animal, as its skin could
bo easily sold to tho white traders.
Tho party prossed on and reached
tho Columbia on January 21, at a
point between the mouth ot tho
Umatilla and tho mouth ot tho
Hero flsh and dogs wero secured
from the Indians found thero. Stray
bits ot Information from tho In
dians gavo tho party hopes that Mc
Kenzlo and McLennan and party
had passod down tho rlvor soma
time boforo. Proceeding down tho
rlvor, tho party arrived at tho In
dian village of Wlshra'm on January
Wlshram-was located near what
is now tho town of Spodls, Washing
ton, a few miles up tho river from
This village must have been near
what we now call Celllo Falls as It
Is spoken ot as the fishing mart ot
the Indians and where tho salmon
were speared as they tried to leap
This tribe was called tho Tlak-
Lult and are described as being very
sly and thievish.
Continuing on down tho river
Mr. Hunt nnd his party reached
what Is now called Cascade Locks
where a thieving band ot Indians
wero encountered and the utmost
vigilance was needed to protect the
property of tho party. After consid
erable dickering, Mr. Hunt procured
the necessary number ot-boata with
which to make the trip down the
river to Astoria.
Tho trip from hero down tho rlvor
was unovoutful and finally on the
16th day ot Fobruary, 1813, swept
down tho stroam and enmo In sight
Tho feelings of tho party can bo
lmaglnod whon wo Btop to consider
that It had boon over a year on tho
way from St. Louis, most of tho tlmo

Among tho first to greet them
was Reed, McLennan nnd McKonzle
from whom thoy had bcon separated
at tho Caldron Linn, near what is
now Twin Falls. Thoso mon had
started out from tho Caldron Linn
to find a routo and bad coino to

country. Thoy followed tho Snako
on down to tho Columbia and thence
down to Astoria whoro thoy arrlvod
a month ahead ot Mr. Hunt. Tho
distance travollod by tho Hunt party
was about 3600 inllos, though tho
actual dlstanco from St. Louis to As
toria Is only 1800 miles.
Tho following day was given ovor
to rojolclng ovor tho safo arrival ot
tho party. Tho colors woro holstod,
guns woro flrod and thoro was a
feast of boavor, fish and venison
which was a wolcomo diversion from
horso and. dog flesh Which tho party
had subsisted on for so long. Tho

On March 32, 1812, John Reed,
Dou Jonos, McLennan, and two
Canadians started back to St Louis
with dispatches for Mr. Astor toll

tho safo arrival ot Mr. Hunt and
most of his party. Mr. Reed hud tho
dispatches In a tin liox which ho
strappod oocuroly on his back.
Thoy woro rolnforcod by n party
of twolvo mon carrying supplies to
tho post on tho Oaklnagan.
At Wlshram, thoy had to portage
tholr supplies around tho rapids and
woro sot upon by the Indians and
Mr. Reed badly wounded and his tin
box of dlspatthos stolen, tho In
dians thinking that It contained
"Dig Modlclno." Ono Indian was
killed and ono wounded. Tho In
dians demanded that Mr. Reed be
glvon up as a sacrifice to tho dead
warrior, hut tho domand was refused
and tho matter sottlod by tho whlto
mon giving tho Indians matorlal to
covor tho dead warrior and tobacco
for tho living.
Tho object ot Reed's Journoy now

box, tho wholo party repaired with
Robert 8tuart to tho establishment
on tho Oaklnagan. Attor a few
days thoro, thoy atartod back for

Journoy came upon Mr. Crooks and
