which event took place on luesday,
May 2, 1843, 52 persons for and 50 per
sons aeainst. There were a lew early
settlers on trench mine, wtio am not,
know that the meeting was being held.
Among them were Antone Pluard, who
has lived in Oregon City for the past
year with his son-in-law and daughter,
Mr. and Mrs. William Baker. In 1842
Mr. Pluard was an individual member
of one of 25 families, who emigrated here
from Manitoba, Canada, and set
tled on French Prairie. Mr. Pluard'a
claim was near where the town of Wood-1
burn now stands. Dr. McLoughlin in
sisted oa the ne immigrants locating at
Oregon City, but the heavy growth of
timber deterred them from the purpose,
and the further fact, that they did not
realize the importance of Oregon City
as being at the head of navigation. The
open prairies further up the valley at
tracted tneir attention, ana tne ricn boh
that could fie cultivated without clear
ing off the timber, was an inducement
that could not be resisted.
Mr. Pluard was not present at the
meeting held at Champoeg to form a
provisional government, for the reason
e states, tnat tie am not Know anytmng
about it until it was over. Had he
known of the event before it came off he
would have been there. In 1850 Mr.
Pluard and his family went to the gold
mines in California, although advised
not to do so by his father, who told him
that California cold was now coming to
this country, and that times would be
prosperous. Mr. Pluard already bad
everything necessary for a comfortable
hving. but thought-be could make nis
fortune by going to California. While
there he and his wife were sick a greater
part of the time, and when they re
turned to woodmirn a new settler naa
taken a donation land claim on their old
olace. Had he left Mrs. Pluard at home
in nossession of the claim, he would have
not lost the land, mi . riuara says tnat
people hvei easy in those days. A
farmer could take zuu Dusneis oi wneat
to l he boat landing at Champoeg, from
where it was shipped to the Hudson
Bav Company's headquarters at Van
couver. In return the settler would re
ceive enough clothing and provisions to
last for a year.
