DELIVERED IX THE CONGREGATION-
cALCHUECH, ON TUESDAY,
At Mr. Boberts' request the publi
cation o his address before the Pio
neerand Historical Society was
delayed to give him an opportunity
to placeit in shape for the immortal
ity of type. It is now presented as
Below, and forms an important chap
ter, in ihe history of the state.
-IVIti President, lellow citizens, pio
wwwsnd fellow workers in Oregen:
JuiPa-citizen of this state, and pioneer
or l&i, l am invited to speak to you
on this fourteenth anniversary of the
society. I congratulate you on your
residence m this rising empire of the
northwest a country of vast extent,
healthful climate, fertile soil, mild
and equable seasons, a land of plenty,
unyisitedby dearth, o tornado or
pflfitllence, wnope rivers' and coasts
abound in fish, vast forests are filled
with timber of great value and almost
fabulous dimensions, whose broad
acres grow the "finest wheat known on
earth, and whose resources, if prop
erly developed, are, sufficient for the
wants of the entire continent to-day.
As I look over this gathering, and
think of the commonwealth you are
building up, I am reminded of what
tharanerable George 3ancroft said
a few weeks age: "Certainly our
great united commonwealth is the
child of Christianity. It may with
equal truth be asserted that modern
civilization sprung into life with our
religion and faith in its principles
is the life boat on which humanity
has at divers times escaped the most
threatening perils." This venerable
man was once in the cabinet of Pres
ident Polk as secretary of f he navy,
and gave the order, as acting secre
tary of war, for the occupation of
California, and in 1816 became minis
ter to Great Britain. It was after a
Tery large experience' as a man of the
wprld tnat be gives the testimony I
hare quoted above, more appropriate,
it seems to me, to this northwest
coast than to any other part of the
Union. The addresses of those who
have, preceded me remind me of what
J&mos-IL said of Isaao Barrew: "He
is a most unfair preacher; he leaves
nothing for anyone else to say."
These men being the first in the
mine, helped themselves to the big
gest nuggets of historic -gold, and I
must content myself to give you some
little gleanings along the line of per
sonal observation for the last thirty
sevea years. No one eye witness can
etk' whole of an extended field of
battle. In moral and social conflicts
the smoke of battle may not hinder
;1hyjQ'qing, but the wide extent, the
length of time, and the multiplicity
of means may allow no one eye to see
the whole conflict
I have been perfectly cognizant of
jttttwofk going on on this Pacific
attor-a-fall generation of men, and
yataio ?doubt many important events
kslre escaped-my notice. One fact I
witot to "recognize, just now. "We are
?hjie from all points of the compass
and represent all shades of opinion
-fcftn&d&together in society for a com
- Lot us see some points of agree-
'First We agree as to the priceless
value of good citizenship.
Hence we welcome any and every
good man and true woman, come they
from whence they may.
We "don't want people as immi
grants who would not be missed at
-,&oaie, aaS-.contentod when they get
here, and tree, as'De Quinoy puts it,
froja-the vices of lying exaggeration
Seeond We agree that the manu
facture of. this article (good citizen
ship) is worthy of -all encouragement
The more good, thoroughly trained
.ohUdren a man and a woman bring
to ua.snoLraise among us the better
fltlowFbey are-the more we like
tfom; the -fewer hoodlums and street
arabs we .manufacture, the batter and
safer for" our purses, our lives, our
w-dajwhtera and our homes.
TlaSA-We agree that this histori
ail society is a bond of peace and
fraternity, not an arena of strife,
where old grudges are fought out
and where rods are kept in soak for
people we don't like. Iror the orators
of suoh a society to take occasion to
akow trp-.the shortcomings of -their
fellows is not in good taste. We are
a unit on that question.
Fourth We agree there are clearly
marked distinctions in human con
duct . A drunkard is not as good as
a-eber.-unan;-a thief is not as good
tieeifss-aii -honestanan; an idler,
who insists the world owes him a
living, is not so good a man as the
honest sozt-ot toil, who pays his debts
and ear6 His liviug before God and
man. Whatever, therefore, helps us
to understand this clear distinction
is a help to good citizenship, and
whatever obliterates these distinc
tions blunts the moral sensibilities,
hardens-the heart, encourages the
dangerous elements in society, and
puts in -peril our safety. We are a
unit on this also, once more.
Fifth The conscience power of so
ciety is the safeguard -of the nation.
It is not'your army, nor your police,
nor your const tution, nor your
courts, but something back of all
this underneath all this lie-tho very
foundations of our social system, in
tbejdeep conscientious principles and
Btote-bfiright iThese -we shall
ibver surrender, and in these deep
institutions of our. nature lie the
safety of Bociety.. Hence follows the
t.corroiary, tnat ne wno neips-io

"For six weeks I explored California
and then under instructions came up
the coast to the Columbia river, stop
ping at this place a few hours and
reaching Portland on the 29th of June,
215 days from New York. Such a voy
age once in a man's life is a valuable
experience, l am glad to nave passed
over it once, and could not wish to re
peat it Then were the days of the
Mexican war. Palo Alto, Resaca do la
Palma. Buena Vista, Cerro Gordo and
Chapultepec claimed the public atten
tion, while the vessels that carried B.
S. Maclav to China and J. H. Wilbur
and others to Oregon were unnoticed
except by a few plain peoplo who had
faith enough in God and goodness to
see how civilization springs into life
with Teligion, and how wisely the Polk
administration acted when it cher
ished and encouraged our missionary
societies to Fend laborers to this north
west coast. It may not be known to
some of you that our mission stations
were located by written permission of
the United States government, signed
by the Secretary of War. I was not
one of the original missionaries, and
lam entitled to no credit tor tneir
heroic virtues and no blame for their
mistakes. I presume they made some
mistakes. It is alleged thoy did. I
need not defend them, and certainly
shall not retaliate on their accusers.
But the rather let us look up the vir
tues of our predecessors and ooiera
poraries, and cherish the precious
fact that we live and are associated
with some of the best men and women
on the face of the earth. I shall be J
reminded perhaps that the bible
speaks freely of the faults, and sins
oven, of many of its characters, but
then I answer God, the infinitely wise
Jehovah, is the speaker, and I remem
ber he has no grudge against us, but
is our steadfast and unchangeable

crossing the Kocky mountains to ob
tain rengious information. Some
trader had told them their worship

which told them how to worship the ,vhhe- confesscd that they enticed T'sp'cl-u .ttenifon Hen to sunnhine

had explored their country and was
now superintendent of Indian aDmra.
Twoof these same Indians died m St.
Louis, the others sot out for home,
but nothing further is laiown of their
history. The story created a pro-.
found sensation among the churches.
A strong appeal, written by tho late
Dr. Wdbar Fisk, president of the
. V.,. ! nln
Wesleyan university, resulted in the
selection of Eev. Jason Lee and also
Daniel Lee, who, together with Cyrus
Shepherd and T. L. Edward, consti
tuting tho nrst missionary party,
crossed the Eocky mountains in 1834, 1
under the escort of Captain E. Kveth.

Esiuforcements wore promplly sent.
In May, 1837, Dr. E. White and A.

came in September of that year. In
June, 1810, the great reinforcement,
consisting of fifty-one persons, ar

which chanced the complexion of af-!
Tifof 'TMin wiacinTiotMAa loliririnfr
among the Indians found tho death
rate among the children rnost fearful.
It seemed the whole race was doomed
to extinction. And
Second American settlers began to j
come into the country, and instead of
labor being demauded among tho In
dians, who were dying off so rapidly,
special attention must be given to ihe
emigrants coming from aJL the states
in the Union.
This state of things rendered it no
longer necessary to maintain a mis
sion colon with farms and cattlo and
tradesmen, and accordingly in 113
Bev. George Gary, a man of large ex
perience was sent out by the mission
board to carefully ascertain the exact
condition of the several stations, sell
off cattle, horses, etc., now no longer
needed in the changed condition of
affairs, and thus make the most of the
mission property, dismissing ihe secu
larmembars thereof, adapted the la
bors of the missionaries to tho altered
condition of sooiety. When ZMr.
Gary had completed the business ar
rangements for which he came to tho
coast, William Roberts, accompanied
by James H. Wilbur, was sent to take
his place, to carry forward the work
among all classes, and make tho most
of the labors already performed.
Tho Dalles mission was then trans
ferred into the hands of Dr. Whit
man, representing the A. B. O. F. M..
who it was believed could more ef
fectually carry on missionary work
among the Indians, while the Metho

Scarcely three months had elapsed
when the'terrible massaore of Wal
latpu took place, and was followed by
the horrors of the Oayuse war. Thus
missionary labors among the Indians
were tendered largely impossible by
circumstances utterly beyond their
It has become quite fashionable on
these occasions to speak of the mis-

'While I agree with the generally ac
cepted opinion that the primary ob
ject for which the missionaries were
sent to this land was an entire failure,

rather to vindicate tne missionaries.
But v.t admit no sur'i entire failure
and do not chos to adopt the opinion.
The following fact3 appear:

readily than their virtues. j
Jt has been a great misfortune that
we have had five or bis Indian wars
