It Is Held in Honor of F. X.
Matthieu, Sole Survivor
of Champoeg.
One of the Filty-Two Who Helped
to Save the Oregon Country
to the "Union by
His Act.
The turnstiles recorded 18,302 ad
missions to the Fair yesterday.
Pioneers, who realize as no others do
the marvelous transformation that has
taken place in the great Northwest since
more than a half a century ago, when the
immigration from the East began In ear
nest, assembled at the Lewis and Clark
Exposition yesterday. The occasion was
F. X. Matthieu day', which was set aside
In honor of the only living survivor of
tnc forming of the Provisional Govern
ment at Champoeg, May 2, 1843. There
were several. hundred pioneers yesterday
at the Exposition, most of whom have
achieved prominence In the upbuilding and
development of Oregon, in which they
have played such an important and almost
Invaluable part The whole of the Ex
position did honor to the pioneers yester
day, as without them Oregon would not
be sufficiently advanced to have a "World's
In Honor or F. X. arntthicu.
F. X. Matthieu was naturally the center
of Interest, as without him who knows
but that there would be no proud State
of Oregon, but instead a province over
which would wave the iBrltlsh flag. F.
X. Matthieu is one of the 52 men who
voted for the establishment of a Pro
visional Government. If any one of these
52 patriots had wavered, the cause would
have been lost, as there were 50 men in
The exorcises of the day wore hold in
the Auditorium at 2:30 o'clock In the
afternoon. The lower floor of the building
was nearly filled with people, most of
whom were pioneers. There were both
men and women pioneers present. Some
wore old and feeble, and could hardly walk
unattended, while others, although they
showed signs of age. wore apparently In
the very prime of life. F. X. Matthieu
was seated in a ohair. beautifully deco
rated with flowers and wreaths of even
creens and Oregon grape, which was
standing in the center of the platform

but Is still hale and hearty, and appeared
to be In the very best of health. Back of
him were seated many of the most prom
inent men of Oregon, ' all of whom aro
proud to be callod pioneers. On olthor
slue of Mr. Matthieu wore pictures of
Colonel Joe Meek and Dr. John McLough
Joseph Buchtel Presides.
Joseph Buchtel presided as .master of
ceremonies, and Introduced the various
speakers. He first Introduced Mr. Mat
thieu, who arose and bowed In acknowl
edgment of the burst of applause that
greeted his . presentation. Colonel Henry
E. Dosch, director of exhibits, delivered
the address of welcome on behalf of the
Lewis and Clark Exposition, which ollcited
considerable applause at Intervals.
"Enthusiasm and work are absolutely
necessary for the success of every proj

Columbus would never have discovered
this beautiful land of ours. Without them
the Lewis and Clark expedition would
never have been accomplished. Without
thom you, Mr. Matthieu, and Joe Meek
and your confreres would not have saved
this Northwest territory to the United
States, and made possible this Exposition,
which we are now enjoying. It was not

your good self, Mr. Matthieu, to push on
and on, until success was achieved, but
pure, unselfish enthusiasm and hard
Governor Chamberlain was unable to at
tend, having been unavoidably detained
at Salem, but he was ably represented by
J. H. Alberts, who made a very excellent
address of welcome on bohalf of the State
of Oregon. He was followed by ex-Governor
T. T. Geer, who delivered the ora
tion of the day. Ex-Governor Geer has
known Mr. Matthieu for many years, and
the two are very warm personal friends.
Biography of Matthieu.
He gave a brief biography of the life
of Mr. Matthieu, who was born in Mon
treal, Canada, of French parents. At the
age of 12 he began clerking in a dry goods
store, at which occupation he continued
until 1837. when the rebellion against Eng
land on the part of the disaffected French
Canadians engaged his favorable atten
tion to such a marked extent that he was
compelled to leave the country after its
suppression and to seek safety In tho
United States.
Young Matthieu drifted about different
parts of the Middle West, during which
he had experience as trader with the
Indians Anally coming to Oregon In 1842.
His party arrived at Oregon City on Sep
tember 23. In describing the memorable
event at Champoeg, ex-Governor Geer
said, in part:
"During the year Mr. Matthieu was en
gaged in transporting supplies from Van
couver to Champoeg, there was no place
along tho entire waterfront of Portland's
present location where a landing could
be made, so dense was the growth of
tangled brush and trees which overhung
the banks, and unless a landing was
made where these Exposition grounds
now are, the Journey must be continued
until a point above was reached, where
a small stream put Into the river and
formed a gravel bar upon which it was
possible to xnako a camp.
Need of Government.
"And there was then no government in
all this land, but the need of some legal
lzed authority soon became manifest to
the scattering American settlers and mis
slonarles, and the death of Ewlng Young,
a resident or the Nenalem valley In Yam
hill County, who left a snug property but
no heirs, confronted the settlers with the
fact that there was no Probate Court and
no authority anywhere to take charge of
ills estate.
"This fact, coupled with the general
feeling of insecurity as a result of the
anomalous situation, gave -rise to a series
of informal meetings of 'the inhabitants
of the Willamette Valley as the different
calls were worded, until the contest be
tween the British sympathizers, who were
opposed to any civil organization, as be
ing antagonistic to the Interests of the
trappers, represented by the Hudson's
Bay Company, and the American settlers,
who were in favor of an organization.
which, of itself, would be a move toward
ultimate possession of the country by the
United States, should be finally settled.

WAS NAMED. "l " - '
". . .T. . ;
Tuesday, May 2. 142. was for the purpose
of finally determining this momentous
question. The call was issued to all the
Inhabitants of the Willamette Valley, and
when the meeting was called to order it
was found that the store building at
Champoeg was too small for the purpose.
when an adjournment was had to the
little prairie .immediately in front.
A Simple Proposition.
"Although fraught with far-reaching
consequences to the entire Oregon Coun
try, it was a simple proposition, a more
question of a preponderance of votes, a
condition that has frequently confronted
candidates for office in the political con
tests that the succeeding years have seen
come and go. There were 102 men present.
and the first vote seemed to oe in favor
of those who wore opposed to an organ
ization, as the ayes and noes rang out
over the waters of the nearby Willamette
and echoed through the adjoining forest,
but before the decision was given, the
stalwart figure of Joe Meek, who had
come over from the Tualitan Plains,
emerged from the crowd, and In the well-
known voice of that Intrepid mountaineer.
shouted to those who favored an organ
ization to follow him. Immediately the
friends of that movement took their
places by his side, and they numbered
precisely 52 men, leaving but 50 standing
in opposition.
"When the noses wore counted It Is
recorded that never before did 52 men
succeed in sending such a combined shout
into the very heavens as did those fol
lowers of Joe Meek at that, critical mo
ment in the history of the Orogon coun
try. Tribute to Matthieu.
"And among those Immortal 52 patriots,
ladies and gentlemen, was F. X. Mat
thieu, the young subject of Great Britain,
but who was true to the best Interests
of the country to which he had come
in spite of his ancestral connections, and
for several years he has been the sole
survivor of all those who wore present
at that great meeting at Champoeg, now
more than 62 years ago."

were readings of selections from Sam

With this end in view the management

of Dr. McLoughlln. The Historical So

make tills a big day at the Fair, and has
extended Invitations to all the pioneers
and their families to attend the exercises
