Portland, May tt.To tha Editor of
Tha Journal. On page 11 it your Issue
of yesterday, aUualon Is made to bullets,
shot and slugs being taken out by tha
dredge Columbia In tha last two or threa
days from tha bad of 'tha river back
of Swan island, and an attempt was
made to account 'or tha presence of the
missiles at tha place where they were
found. Tha theory advanoed la no doubt
partially correct that Is, that part re
lating to tha target range and tha shoot
ing of ducka and geese on tha island.
There never waa an Indian battle, how
ever, at the point named or anywhere near
there, at any (tlme slnca tha country
waa settled by wblta people, and before
that date there were no guna of any
kind In this country. Tha first runs In
Oregon were brought by tha ewls and
Clark party In 1105, and whan they
atarted on their return trip from Fort
Clatsop, In March, 1101, they took all
their guns along. The next guna of
which anything la known were those
brought by the Aator party In April,
1111. Kith tha advent of tha North
west company at Astoria In the fall of
1111, but fair " additional guna ware
added aa almost all of the employes) of
the latter company had bean In the ear-
vlca of tha former company. Almost all
tha run la use by those fur trapping
oom Denies and their suooessor. tha Hud
son'a Bay company.' In lilt, which ra
moved Ita headquarters to what la now
known aa Fort Vancouver In 1114. were
smooth-bore flint-locks, and carried an
ounce ball. Shot o. all alaea were uaed
In these guna aa wall aa aluga of lead
of Irregular shape; and It waa not at all
uncommon for Indiana and sometimes
tha trappers to us small pebbiea. Aalde
from the rlflea brought to Oregon by tha
oooaalona! Amarloan trapper, beginning
about 1114. tha Wyeth party in lilt, and
the early pioneers up to 1141, for tha
most part knewa aa "Kentucky rifles"
ao called because they had full atooka
there were no United States guna In
Oregon until May, 1141, for tha reason
that there were no United Stafea troopa
here until then.
Regarding Captain O roves' statement
that mlnle balla weighing aa ounce war
used In the old type of muskets. It
only necessary to aay that ha la mis
taken, because the rifle of that name,
Invented In Franca by Claude Etlenne
Mlnle, In 1141, and adopted by ' tha
French government a little later, waa
not Introduced Into tha United States
before 1114. And further, this bullet
could not bo used la a musket with any
degreo of aocuraey. It was hollow at
tha baae and when dlschargsd It ex
panded and fitted snugly Into tha grooves
of the rifle, thus receiving tha fall
strength of tha ammunition behind It.
Thla "find" of leaden missiles of all
alsea and forma can ba easily accounted
for by tha fact that during tha occu
pancy of tha old Hudson's Bay company's
Fort Vancouver, from 1114 to tha data
wbea Ita offloea ware removed to Vic
toria. B. C, about lilt. It la believed,
tona of lead were dlaoharged Into Swan
Island and the river oa all sides. This
