The following interesting article by
Roy Alexander, of this city, appears
in tho February issue of The Orderly,
the official journal of Hill's Military
Academy, of Portland:
Situated abcut eight miles from
air native town In Eastern Oregon,
there is aa Ideal site for an Indian
camping ground. The reservation
near this town is vcy large an.l many
Indians live there. This tribe of In
dians, the UmatJllas, is the remnant
of a once enterprising nnd
tribe. They are very very peaceful
1 and for years have caused
trouble Many of them :re civilized,
;talk good English, and are engaged
in farming nnd other profitable pur
suits. Their one great drawback
is their unquenchable thirst for
for whiskey. Of course, the state law
la large number of Indians are pres
ent.. Tho tents or wigwams, are
pitched in the form of an oval
around this trnct of land. It is a
very pretty sight when a person sees
tho wigwams placed in such a man
ner. Tills celebration generally lasts
for two weeks or until the Indirns are
On the first of July the visiting In
dians commence nrrlving on the
scone. In two davs the wigwams are
erected and generally they begin with
a grand parade on the Fourth. If the
weather suits the Indians they havo
en up to various diversions. A small
dnnco hnll Is built for the white peo
ple, and some enjoy themselves in
this place. At tho end of two weeks
the visiting tribes begin to leave.
