grew the large institution now located at Mount Angel The
suggestion comes that this event should be properly celebrated
in October on the completion of half a century of sen-ice;
and no doubt the Benedictine fathers will do appropriate
honor to the occasion Certainly: the buildings and the activ
ities at Mount Angel bear testimony to the performance of
the foundation that was laid five decades ago.
It was in 1881 that Fathe Adelhem toured the Pacific
coast seeking a location for a monastery. He became pastor
of the parishes of Fillmore and Gervai3 and decided that
Gervais was the place for his institution. So he returned to
bwitzerland, secured necessary aid and then founded his
monastery at Gervais. A few (years later however he de

Comcomly was a polygamist and
slaveholder. A similar atatement

customs of his people. That this
Chinook chieftain had strict no
tions concerning" propriety, tha
louovnng quotation Indicates:
"Before the founding of Astoria,
tha Chlnooks, under tb)e stern
governance of Comcomly, wera
sober Indians. It is even recorded
that tha old chief ones stronyly
reprimanded his son-in-law, L.c
Dougal, for giving rum to Com
comly's son, causing him to re
turn drunken to tha Chinook vU
laga and to make a shameful spec
tacle of himself before his trlbea
men." Comcomly expressed dis
pleasure, also, with McDougal
when Astoria was surrendered ta
tha British during our second war
with England. Tha Chlnooks were
m iavor or resistance to the
"King George men," but McDou
gal thought otherwise. Comcomly

be carefully distinguished from
