Accordingly, the next day, he
waited on the Secretary of War the
second time and asked him if there
was any chance for him to get an
audience with the President. The
Secretary of War replied that he did
not know tbat it was possible, but
he would do what he could. He
went and saw the President, and
when be came back he said tbat the
President would give him an audi
ence In the afternoon. According
ly in the afternoon, the Secretary of
War introduced him to the Presi
dent. After the doctor had intro
duced the subject of saving Oregon
to the United States, the President
said, "The paper is here ready for
my signature, and I was just about
to sign it, but I will listen to what
you have to sav on the subject be
fore siguing it." "Mr. President,"
said the doctor, "if you sign that caused
treaty you will giveaway one of the
best parts of our land. We are all
loyal citizens of the United States
and have no wish to go under the
British flair. We have a splendid
climate, vast resources, and it is as
fine land as is under the sun."
The President replied that it had
been represented to him that the
country was not worth much and
that it was impossible to get a wag
on there as the mountains were so
rough and rocky, and that it was
impossible to settle the land by sea,
as the United States could not afford
to make colonies like Ivngland is do
ing and keep them up. "But."
said the doctor, we do not have to
settle the country by sea, we can go
by land.'" The President sa d it
was impossible to go by land as a
wagon road could not be made; wag
ons could not cross the Rockv
mountains. The doctor replied
tbat it was possible to make a wa?
on road to the Pacific coast, and
that the matter bad been misrepre
sented to the President bv the
friends of England in order to get
possession ot the country. The
President could hardly believe it.
He bad the idea firmlv fixed on his
mind that the whole western coun
try was a series of mountains with
out a redeeming feature. In order
to convince tbe President, the doct
or finally said. "Mr. President, it
you will not sign that treaty, I will
undertake to take a train of wagons

Th doctor replied that be had oth
er duties that belonged to an Amer-
ican citizen, and as such be was in
WnhinPton at the present time.
The next day the doctor got him
self a change of clothes more in ac
cordance with the prevailing cus
tom, and again presented bimseii 10
the secretary. Kither tbe secretary
haA thought tbe matter over in a
different light or the clothes had
some effect on him, tbe doctor
could not tell, anyway, be treated
him very affably.
This was the substance of what
the doctor told me that night at Mr.
Spaulding's. I have no doubt he
told me the truth for he told me sev
eral times afterward, and he always
related it in the same manner. But
even then he would not tell anyone
outside of us four that I mentioned.
He said that he firmly believed that
if be let it be known the Hudson
Bay Company would find some way
to annoy him.
In September, 1848, the gold ex
citement which broke out in Cali
fornia in the spring, reached up in
to this county. You can hardly re
alize what excitement the news
Every one was ready to
go to the new Eldora and get rich
in a few months. We waited until
we had our crops harvested before
One gentleman named John Way-
mire said to me, "Are you going to
the mines?" I told him that I cer
tainly was. He said that the In
dians would surely break out and
kill all the people tbat were left. I
told him that I thought there was
no danger, that they were pretty
quiet, I added further, "If they
should break out and kill off all the
people in the valley,. it will be done
at the instance of the Cathol ic priests
and I can never see a Catholic
priest in peace again. I shall make
it a business to hunt priests.
Some people did not wait for tbe
harvest but went leaving things as
the news found them. The road
was lined with people. One com
pany got to the canyon near where
Canyonville now is, and waited for
our company to come up. As they
were somewhat afraid of the Indians

to the Columbia river, I will not

it is possible." Dr. Whitman said
earnestly that he would
lane a wagon train through to the
Pacific coast and he would not onlv

be would succeed. "Very well

ise, the doctor advertised that h.
would pilot a train of wagons to Or

The doctor then went to Boston
to see the secretary of the board of
Methodist foreign missions. He
was still dressed in his buskskin
suit, which was not quite in accord
ance with the latest modes of socie
