The UIiIcnI luhubiinnt.
The nowspapern have U'cu having ilito
a controversy over tho question as to who is
the ohhst white settler in Oregon. Wo had
always supposed that Mr. Allan, of the old
Hun of Allan, Mckiulay ,V Co., antedated all
olb.rs, but they have found it out that Jean
Ha tisto Garni, r, now residing on tho Sins.
law river in Lane comity, is the. man. Mr.
(.iirnier was boin iu at a place on the
St.Lavrcnc river about nine miles from
Montreal. In he was one of a party of
sixty-four daring young voyageura who left
Canada for the Pacific Northwest, having
eic,ht bark Canoes. Thev were out on the
plains all that winter and so reduced by hun
ker s to be obliged to cat tho pailbche
from their moccasins, In August of the
year following they arrived at the Willamette
Falls, having lost twenty -two of their num
ber by death. Mr. Gamier was in the em
ploy of the Hu.Imiu Hay company twctity
four years, eight of which he resided al Fort
I'liipijua, which was about live miles below
the, present town of Gardiuer. Tho old
man is still strong aud hearty and has never
seen a railroad track nor s traiu of cars; aud
the Pioneers should not (ail to pay his ex
penses to this city to this city to aiteud their
next annual reunion. His sou Johu is an
intelligent half-breed rIkiuI forty-eight or
fifty years of ago, and wholly without fear,
as the following iucidcut will show, The
coastwise travel bvtweeu Coos Lay and the
l'uipitia is usually made on hors. back or by
stage to a place called Barrett's Lauding,
about three miles from Empire City, across
the bay, where they take the Hleamer for
Empire or Marshlield ns best suits them.
John Gamier reached there just ten minutes
loo late for the boat aud could find no skill
with which to cross. Ho went to llarrett'.
house only to find it locked tight. About
an hour later, ho walked into tho oflico of
tho Coos Lay News aud asked us for the loan
of an old pair of trowsers to wear while his
own were drying. Ho had swam his horse
across the bay that dark uud stormy night
because ho had promised a man to pay him
money ho owed him, on that very day. How
many iu. it are thero in our midst whose
punctuality ever would have troubled them
to such an extent? Wo were fairly dumb
founded at the exploit and asked him:
"John, wasn't it a fearfully dangerous un
dertaking?" "No, the tide was ebbing and that was iu
my favor. Aud tho wind down stream made
the bay very smooth no sea at all."
"Hut 1 should havo thought you would
have been afraid of sharks catching you by
the Kg and dragging you out of the saddle,"
said tho writer."
"No danger of that," said Gamier, "at
this season tho sharks never come into the
bay. The creeks aro all too high, and Ihere
is too much fresh water iu the bav for that."
Of all the Iliillalo Dills and' Texas Jacks
that have gone to ustoiiish I.on.luii with
their exploits about the "Wild tVesi" there
is not one of them that we would sooner
trust ou a dangerous errand, requiring an
equal mixture of courage and caution, than
that saiuo good-natured and pleasant-faced
John Gamier. Wo hopo to meet him 'and
his father, too, nt the next reunion of the
Oregon pioneers, lhe society should ad
vance tho old mail's expenses from Siuslaw
to Portland and back, al least, --Mercury.
