(Jets Rata mi Early Oregon History.
George II. Himes, assistant secretary
of the Oregon Historical society, spent
Friday night in Hood River, on his
return from a two weeks' trip to Baker
City and other points in Eastern Ore
gon, where ho gathered much data
relating to the early immigrations to
the Oregon country. Mr. Himes says
since leaving on his trip he has inter
viewed at least 00 peoplo who came to
Oregon lietween the years 1843 and
1853. This includes about 80 who came
over the Meek's cutoff, the time the
whole immigrant train came near per
ishing. The old Immigrant trail through
Oregon, after leaving Vale in Malheur
county went north past Baker City, and
followed near the present line of the
railroad to the Umatilla river and down
the Columbia to the Barlow pass and
onto Oregon City. Meek and his party
sought to shorten the route and struck
off through the John Day country
where his party became lost and after
weeks of wandering floundered through
tho sago brush into the Tygh valley and
down to the Columbia river.
Gold was discovered by the Meek's
party along tho John hay river, at
what has since la-en named the Blue
Bucket diggings, from the blue buckets
left there by the immigrant train. The
story is told that gold was used by mem
bers of the party as sinkers on their
fish lines. Mr. llimes was telling this
story one day in Southern Oregon, when
the listener remarked, "Yes, that's so;
I was there myself and saw the man
flatten the nugget against the wagon
tire, ami then wrap it about the string
he used for a fish line."
At Bauer City, Air. Himes Bays a
10,000-acre tract of sagebrush land has
been recently reclaimed from the jack
rabbits. This land is now a paradise,
but 40 years it lay untouched, within
a few miles of liaker City, having been
considered nothing but a barren waste,
until three years ago water was turned
onto the land, and the prolific .qualities
of the soil discovered. At a compara
tively small cost, says Mr. Himes, it
has been figured out that the winter
floods in the Power river can be con
served and used to irrigate 40,000 acres
near Baker City.
