With tiiis last company canio Joseph
Gale, the subject of our sketch, who
seems to have been 0110 of the very
earliest of tlwso who were neither
missionaries or connected with the
Hudson Eay company, who bocamo
permanent citizens of Oregon.
Mr. Gale was undoubtedly ono of
those who petitioned congress in 1S-10
to establish a territojial government
for Oregon. We find honorable men
tion of him in proceeding of early set
tlers. About 18il the enterprise of
building a schooner of forty tons bur
den was successfully accomplished uu
der great difficulties, and r:as assisted
by Capt. Wilkes of the Exploring Ex
pedition, who furnished materials for
rigging it in part. When completed
the vessel made voyages to San Fran
cisco, or Ycrba Buena then railed
under command of Capt. Gale, which
confirms the belief that he was a sea
faring man, and na such originally vis
ited this coast.
After returning from California with
his vessel, which was traded there for
a large band of cattlo, Mr. Gale was
elected by the settlers in 18-13, with
Alanson Beera and David Hill, an ex
ecutive committee- under a provisional
government, and this fact ha caused
the report that 1ms was one of the
early governors of Oregen: That com
mittee wielded the executive power
and the title was not really misplaced.
