He told something of how he him
self came to Oregon with his father
and mother, and of the difficulties
they encountered, and declared that the
real credit for the settlement and de
velopment of the state belongs, not to
men and women like himself, who were
brought here by their parents, but to
their elders, who did the real work and
Buffered the real privations.
Judge Oeorge AU Right as Boy
In his response, President Carter
vouched for the fact that "Father"
Fllnn's sermons must have had some
good effect upon Judge Oeorge, "fox,
as a boy, he was all right."
"But I can't say so much for some
of the things he did in after life," he
continued. "Ho was elected to Con
gress, you know."
"Now. you be careful. Joe, or I'll tell
a few things on you," interrupted
Judge P. H. D'Arcy, of Salem, spoke

Stewart McGuire, with a Tich bari
tone voice, sang "Marguerite" and "Ben
Bolt" as an encore.
Ezra Meeker spoke briefly at the af
ternoon meeting. . His principal share
of the entertainment was furnished at
the Baker Theater, between 6 and 7
o'clock, when he gave a lecture. Illus
trated with moving pictures. He told
in an Interesting manner ol nis nrsi

What doubtless was one of the most
enjoyable events of the day was the
"picnic" lunch at the Armory, pro
vided by nhe Women's Auxiliary. The
big drill floor was filled with long
tables and the veteran "boys" and
"girls" did ample Justice to the meal.
Following the lecture by Ezra
Meeker, the entire party returned to
the Masonic Temple, where the "camp,
lire" was conducted.
This was the occasion for story tell
ing and numerous real happy reunions.
It wa8 late when the gathering broke
One Aged 98 Talks.
One or mo owxest pioneers In at
tendance was J. A Paulsell, aged 98,
who came to Oregon In 1851.
"I was a little too old to serve in
the Civil War." he explained yester
day," as he shoved his hat back at a
rakish angle, "but I was a pretty ac
tive duck and got by all right. They
pretty nearly knocked me out at Char
lottesville, but I am here to tell the
Previous to his Civil War experience
Mr. Paulsell, who lives in Portland, had
served in the Mexican War and in the
Indian uprisings. He carries 27 bullet
wounds and the scar of a saber thrust
on his body.
An Interesting old couple was Mr.
and Mrs. O. J. McCoy. He came here
in 1845 and she in 1852. His father,
John McCoy, was the first judge of
Linn County. The family on coming
to the state settled first in the Tuala
tin Valley and later near the present
town of Albany.
Early Portland Recalled.
"They make quite a fuss about this
burg," said I M. Hall, In speaking of
Portland, "but they should have seen
it when I first came. Tou could have
bought the whole town for a song.
Oregon City then was the place."
Captain J. M. Turner, a veteran of
many Indian battles, came over from
Washougal, Wash., to attend his first
reunion. On July 6 he will be 78 years

and was one of the first carpenters

Indian battle at Lost Creek and in
various other Bklrmlshes.
Good Story-Teller Present.
One of the best story-tellers In the
crowd was Fred A. Lewis, 1844. He
was the center of an interested group
nearly all day. One of his particular
delights was to tell about his wedding
"A lot of neighbors and relations
were coming," he explained, "and I
knew that they wanted a square meal,
so I went out with ir gun. I found
a flock of ducks huddled together in
an opening on a nearby lake. I shot
into the bunch once. As they arose
I let go again. It rained ducks for a
few minutes. When I got through
gathering them up I had 25 birds. There
was enough duck meat to feed every
body." "I came from Missouri." said Charles
Bolds, "in 1845, but I waa bred In Old

An appeal to Congress to grant
pensions to Indian war veterans on
the same basis as those paid to sol
diers of the Civil War was contained
In the resolutions adopted at the meet
ing of the pioneers last night.
Further resolutions were passed ex
nrKBslnsr svmoathy with the family of
the late F. X. Matthieu, an honored'
pioneer of 1842 and the first president
of the association. Sympathy also was
extended to the families of other pio
neers who have passed away within
the last year. (
The State Legislature was petitioned
to care for pioneer cemeteries, a vote
of thanks was extended to the people
of Foruand. and particularly . to the
Women's Auxiliary of the Pioneer As
sociation, for tnelr bountiful hospital
ity In entertaining the annual reunion.
Approval was expressed of the plan

Ezra Meeker was commended for his
sturdy efforts in promoting the '"Ore
gon trail" as a National highway, from
the Mississippi River to the Pacific
The committee on resolutions was
Judge M. C. George, P. H. D'Arcy and
T. T. Geer.
Robert A. Miller, ex-president of the
association, presided last night. It
wasn't much of a place for those of
the younger generation.
Everything- la In Chinook.
Nearly all the speaking, moat of the
singing and every bit of the laughing
was in the Chinook language.
And it wasn't the kind of Chinook
that is learned from books. It had
been taught the "old-Miners"4 by the
Indians themselves. They prorrounced
the words with the proper accent and
used the correct Chinook idioms.
Probably the most entertaining talk
was that of E. B. McFarland, repre
senting the "Unimproved Order of Red
Men." With elaborate manual gestures,
comical facial contortions and much
elocutionary emphasis, he protested. In
Chinook fashion, against the habit of
the "Boston men" in poaching upon
aboriginal reserves. Laughter fre
quently interrupted his monologue.
Mrs. Abigail Scott Duniway gave a
brief address and was loudly applaud
ed before, during and after.
Other speakers were ex-Governor T.
T. Geer, Ezra Meeker and half a score
of pioneer men and women, who ex
temporaneously expressed their pleas
ure at being present.
Music was provided by Mrs. Mabel
Baker Layfield, contralto, with Mrs.
Hallie Baker Allen as accompanist.

those, more nimble than the others, got
up and danced in the aisles.
Ex-Geveraor Geer la President.
In addition to adopting, the resolu
tions, the only business of the night
meeting was the election of officers.
Ex-Governor Geer, who served the past
year as vice-president, was unani
