that sturdy and well-known pioneer. In his
commendable undertaking to create wide
spread interest in the establishment of a
great National highway along the line of
the "Oregon trail," to be known as "-Pioneer
"Way," and urge our representatives in Con
gress to support the enterprise by assisting
to secure a National appropriation therefor.
"Resolved, That we, as members of this
association, being citizen of the entire "Ore

lines, do insist that It Is the duty of every
member of Congress from the States of the
Pacific Northwest to use every effort pos
sible to secure an amendment to the pen
sion laws to the end that the Indian War
veterans of the North Pacific Coast may be
pensioned upon the same basis as the sol
diers of the Civil War of 1861-60. Anything
less than this is. in our opinion, rank in
justice and savors of class legislation.
