Josiuh Howell, of Canemah,
Tells of Incidents of
the Long Ago
Josiuh Howell, one of the prominent
early settlers of Oregon City, and
whose residence Is nt Cnnomah, where
he and his wife have resided for the
past -tli years, is among the few of
this state who well remembers the
appearance of tho llalley comet many
years ngo. At that time he was only
a boy of about six years of age, with
his home nt Columbus, Ohio. He states
that the comet wns unusual In size
and bright, and resembled n rain
bow, but having a long tail, and seem
ed close to the earth. At the time
It made lis appearance the ground
wns covered with a coat of snow, and
I he reflection from tills great heaven-,
ly body ou tho white mantel wns mar
velous, to behold. Tho women in the
town, whero Mr. Howell's parents re
sided, thought that the end of the
world had come, and had prepared
to make tho best of 'their situation.
They expected the snow to turn to
oil and Hint tho tall of tho comet to
decend to the earth and set It ntlre,
and were greatly wrought up over
their fancied idea. Mr. Howell says
that the comet npenrod every night
for some time, nnd everyone looked
for It night after night. '.He thinks
that this great comet will appear In
tho southwest. Mr. Howell also re
members tho time of the "fall of tho
stars," when the heavens were Ilium
Inated by thousands of meteors, and
which was witnessed by hundreds of
Mr. Howell, wns born at Little
Rock, Pennsylvania, on Jnnuary 5,
182!), and nfter living at Columbus,
Ohlii, where ho had accompanied his
parents, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Howell,
went to Cincinnati!, Ohio, and from
there started for the West first go
ing to New York, nnd coming by way
of the Isthmus of Panama. After the
reaching tho Isthmus they found that
they had Just missed their steamer,
and were compelled to remnln for ten
days, embarking at' the end of the
ten dayB on a snlllng vessel. They
were five in the party nt the time they
left New York, but before they had
reached San Francisco, California, two
of the pnrty had died of the Panama
fever, which was raging at that time.
Mr. Howell waa also taken down with
the fever, nnd his life wna despaired
of. but being of a wonderful constitu
tion he recovered. The men were (C5
dnya In coming from New York to
California, and the food wna poor and
scarce at the time. They were
charged $200 for their tickets by steam-'
er from New York to California, but
as they found they had missed their
steamer at Panama, they diapqsed of
them for $1(10 more than they had
paid. The men were glad to again'

tho time Mr. Howell came. He ar
rived in California In August, 1S49.
where lie worked at his trade as ship
builder and contractor, and came here
Mr. Howell erected a building for
Dr. John McLoughlln, the father of
Oregon, 'where now stand the Oregon
City Woolen Mills. This building was
used as a drug store and was In charge
of Dr. Steele, also as a singing school,
one room of the building being used
for this purpose, nnd wus at
tended by many of the women, Mrs.
Howell being a member of the class.
This afforded the early settler one
place of amusement. Mr. Howell
states thnt the wages paid bv Dr.
McUmghlln were $11.25 for one day's
work, out as provisions were high tn
those days, nnd board at $12 per
week, necessitated the high wages.
Mr. Howell, in speaking of this ven
erable old gentleman, says that he
was a friend to all. and was always
in readiness to give a helping hand
to the settler who had arrived here
wilh his family, and whose scanty
means had been exhausted while
coming across the plains to seek
their fortunes In the West. His wife,
although of Indian blood, was edu
cated and refined, nnd treated the
women with great kindness. Many
of the women used to visit with Mrs.
McLoughlln and watch her make
beautiful beadwork. Mrs. Howell,
who camo across the plains with her
parents, also speaks in the highest
terms of Dr. John McLoughlln and
his wife. She, with her family, nar
rowly escaped the Whitmans mas

they accompanied was in the midst
of the fight, as they had not enimgh

Mr. Howell, who is an Indian Wur
Veteran, was in the midst of . the
fight at The Dalles, when there was
four days' steady fighting with the
red skins, and tells many thrilling ex
periences he had during thnt time,
among them being of the capture of
the Indian warrior, P. P. Mox Mox,"
who was a terror to the white people.
Mr. Howell was a member of Com
pany I, volunteers from Benton
County, and during the battle four
of his comrades were killed while
standing close to his Ride. He, him
self, had many hair breadth scapeB.
As his company passed through Port
land on its way to battle, some of
the good women of that city present
ed the members with a beaulirul
American dag. which was carried
throughout the fight.
This Indian war veteran, who will
be 81 yenrs of age on January 5. is
still hale and hearty, and has a re
markable memory. His stories of his
