In the death of Chief Joseph of
the Nez Perces, this country lost its
most noted Indian warrior and in
many respects, its strongest Indian
character. The Nez Perces are now
preparing for a big pow wow meet
ing at which a successor to Chief
Joseph is to be chosen.
' It is now a year since the late
chieftain told in his own language
for tbe first time his story of the
Nez Perces war, at the close of
which General Miles declared Chief
Joseph Jo be the greatest Indian
that ever lived.
When Gov. I. I. Stevens called
the great Walla Walla council of
1855, the result ot which was that
all of the Indians in that section
agreed to give up most of their
lands and go on reservations, all of
the tribes were opposed to the
treaty except the Nez Perces. Old
Ka-mi-a-kin, the leader of the war
of 1855, got the Yakimas, the
Cayuses all the tribes, in fact, but
the Nez Perces to agree to mas
sacre the governor's party. Jo
seph's father and the other chiefs of
the Nez Perces pitched their tepees
near to Stevens' and thus saved the
whites from being killed. For this
act of friendship the governor gave
tbe Nez Perces a lareer share of
land than to the other tribes. Sit
ting in his tepee, Chief Joseph said:
We had 2500 people at Walla
Walla powwow," said Chief Josepb
"Yakima, Cayuse, Umatilla, Wal

people keep Stevens from kill

Chief Joseph then described the

T. F. Ryan, county judge of
Clackamas county, returned a few
days ago from California where he
had an opportunity to witness the
effect apd cost of oiling county
" "The Clackamas county court
will next ve&r experiment with
oil in the building of two miles of
road,"said he to the Oregon City
Enterprise. "This crude petroleum
is used on all of tbe country roads
and many of the streets in all Cal
ifornia counties and towns and the
result is most satisfactory. It is
said to make a water-proof road
and if such is the case it is just
what we need in Oregon. At any
rate my observations fully warrant
(he making of an experiment here
since the cost of this road building
that is the cost of oil is only
$150 per mile, and the roads so
treated, will endure from two to
three years hard travel. "But with
all their oil," continued the county
judge, "California roads do not
