The big three day celebration of
National Independence held at
Wapinitia July 4, 5 and 6 was on
the same gronnds where about one
dozen white men and 400 Indians
met for this purpose, July 4, 1876.
D. P. Wilson, 0. L. Paquet and
Jery Young who were among the
few white men there fourty years
ago, think they are the only ones
now alive who attended that ce)e
bration. This was prior to the
settlement of the Juniper Flat
country by white men,
Captain Smith was father-in-law
of Wm. MeCorkle, now an
aged citizen of Tygh Valley, and
was stationed with the Indians at
Warm Springs Captain John
Shannon was postmaster at Mt.
Hood which was then located at
Oak Grove. Later Jery Young
was in charge of the office and it
changed to Wapinitia.
Mr. Paquet recalls a speech
made by Captain John Smith in
which he advocated dry land farm
ing and growing of wheat, saying
that the native bunch grass was of
the wheat family and that wheat
would thrive where it would. Mr.
l'uquet says Captain Smith pre
dicted that this would be a wheat
producing territory and expresses
pleasure in pointing out the un-j
provernents dud developments
since that time, and is proud of
the opening address delivered last
Tuesday by F. W. Wilson who is
native son and educated largely in
Whsco county, his father having
died wliilo berting ' in Congress
when F. W. was a boy in The
Every feature of the celebration
was considered a success. J? our
ball games were played as follows:
The Wapinitia Grizzlies played
tho regular Tygb team in the earl
afternoon of tho first day, losing
the game to them. Another game
followed immediately between the
Independent Tygh team and the
Muupiii boys whioh the Maupine
carried by a score of 2 to 8. The
winners 01 these two games con
tested the next day for the cham
pionship of the Benson when Man
pin won by a score of 2 to fi
Yesterday afternoon Hie Fnem
team won the last came of the
season from the Or i2zlies.-
Two of the first day's races were
won respeetively by Jim Brown's
sorrel saddle horse and Headlight
1 lie dances each evening were
Maupin won over Wapinitia in
'tug of war.'
Among other sports was a suv
ji , prise for James Lake when Jolmif
Been out ran him in a mulched
I'tiul Uraro attempted riding a
large Mark horte and was thrown
clear. A purse of $9 wa gotten
up for Geo. Cunningham who road

It has been planned that upon
the arrival of the powder and a
powerful battery to do some blast
ing that will open a new epoc for
the Juniper Flat country, this to
occur ere the presnt week draws to
W. J. Heckey of the Irrigation
project, accompanied by Mr. Mc
Farlone, a power expert is here
from Portland to superintend the
opening up of the big cut through
which away for water to pass must
be made. This has been the ob
stacle before the company for a
couple years and Mr. Heckey says
they are now going to cbmplete
the work, which will be done by
means of powder being placed in
drilled holes aud all set off at once
by means of wires connected to a
batteiy. These powder holes will
be ten feet apart and cover a dis
tance of 600 feet, each hole being
a depth of 19 feet. This If effec
tive as designed will literally throw
the earth open for the given depth
The platform at the celebration
grounds above Wapinitia was dap
ed and the flag lowered to half
lowered to half mast Wednesday at
one o'clock1 in memory of Mrs.
Vanderpool who died there the
evening before, while the Wapini
tia band played a funeral march as
they took their places on the plat
form and rendered Nearer My God
to Thee and prayer was offered by
Mrs. Jess Gray.
The Misses Margaret and Leone
Comiui and Tom Cotniul from The
Dalles are visiting here.
Never in the history' of Juniper
Flat has there been so much rain
fall as of late. The record has
surely been broken. A terrible
hail storm struck in sections of this
Country last Friday afteruoon. It
looked for a while as if crops
would be ruined, but examination
proved tiiey were not. The hail
that fell iu the timber at Walkers
ville was almost as large as wal
nuts, and in some places breaking
window panes. It has seemed
lately like March instead of July.
The unusually heavy precipita.
tiou of last week loosened the earth
and rocks along the Deschutes
and caused several land slides.
The first one was reported Friday
night near Sherar, to avoid which
the morning O. W. train took the "
O. T. track, when its progress was
again obstructed by a slide near
the same point on this road. Five
trains, Including freights wete tied
up this Way, some of them for 26
hours before the ditcher which
a Pasco, Wn. , could arrive
and release them. Traffic was not
resumed on trie O. W. road ufitil
some tithe Mohday. ,
The slide bbilnd trains Were for
tunate to be carrying a considera- ,
ble quanlty of eatable express
shipments which were heartily
taken advantage of.
