Bell Building
Now retired to his little fruit farm
on the Columbia river highway a short
distance west of the city, U. W. Ken
nedy, an Oregon pioneer of Is53 and an
early Methodist circuit rider of eastern
Washintgon and Oregon, finds no occu
pation more pleasing than that of tell
ing itoriea of the days when Oregon
was being wrested from the wilder
ness. Rev. Kennedy has just written
a book of pioneer stories. "The Pio
neer Campfire," he calls it. The vol
ume contains much of interest to the
casual reader; it is graphic in its de
scription of incidents of the stirring
times of Indian wsrfare; there are
touches of pathos in the telling of
some early day tragedy; and the reader
must smile as the author must have
done when he was telling of some of
the pleasantries and jokes of the fron
tier. To the student of pioneer north
western history the book contains much
of value.
How much greater privilege it is,
however, to hear the stories told by
the. pioneer minister himself. Rev.
Kennedy is as modest as a maiden. He
is proud of bis new book; not so much
because he has written it, but because
in building up its stories he has lived
over again the days of his childhood
and young manhood. With all of his
modessty the aged minister carries
himself very dramatically. In bis con
versation he will pause until he grasps
just the proper word to make bis
meaning more emphatic. He won rec
ognition for the well rounded points
and beauty of his sermons.
"I made my firt speech," he says in
'The Pioneer Campfire,' "when I was
12 years old. The weekly debating so
ciety of those days was a pretentious
and ambitious institution. The partic
ipants were the men and half grown
hoys flf the neighborhood who organ
ized with a ponderous constitution and
set of bylaws, and under these fought
out many a a forensic battle over ques
tions that have puzzled the minds of
sages and that are still unsettled."
Mr. Kennedy was born in Pike Co.,
Illinois, September 5, 1817. On that
date of the past September he was fill
ing the pulpit of the local MethodiBt
church in the absence of the pastor,
Rev. W. B. Young, who was attending
conference at Spokane. "This is a
coincidence," Baid Mr. Kennedy, as a
prelude to his sermon. "Sixty-eight
years ago on a Sunday morning, juBt
as this ia, I first saw the light of day.
It was 10 o'clock, they tell me. I was
early enough for church, and I have
never been late since." Mr. Keenndy
was of a family of five children.
When the author-minister was six
year of age his parents crossed the
MisisBsippi, joined an emigrant train
and set out for the promise land of
Oregon. The journey was begun as
early as possible in the year, and by
September the Kennedys were en
camped on the Molalla in the Willam
ette Valley. Telling of this first camp
Mr. Kennedy pays a tribute to the
oxen that drew his father's wagon
across the plains. "And the tired oxen,
how they did enjoy it!" he says.
"How they did eat that green Willam
ette grass. Those faithful old oxen
there was old Buck and Dick, always
working at the tongue of the wagon
and from Illinois to Oregon were never
out of their places when we were trav
eling. Old Buck, the kind faithful old
friend, how I did love him. He had
kicked me down once on the plains,
away back on Rear river. 1 was
thrown under the wheels and one of
them passed over my thigh. But
thanks to a protecting Providence I
was scarcely bruised. Still I never
held it against old Buck. It seemed
that he couldn't do a mean trick.
Those weary, hungry cattle seemed as
thankful as we were to God that we
had reached the grassy vales of Ore
gon." Mr. Kennedy's father took up a do
nation claim west of Covallis near the
present site of Philomath. An uncle
of Mr. Kennedy purchased a squatter's
right to an adjoining half section, 'lhe
tamily of the former set to work at
once to prepare for the coming winter.
A 20 by 30 foot log cabin was built.
"We called it home with a great deal of
pride when we moved into it," writes
Mr. Kennedy. "The log cabin had no
floor at first but had a large fireplace
at one end. What fires we used to
have !"
"My mother was forted up in that
cabin during the Cayuse war of 1855
!. Nearly all the able bodied men
had to join the volunteer army and go
out to fight the Indians. With my
mother were her five children, the old
est but 14 years of age. But she could
shoot the head off a squirrel at a good
distance, and with her rifle and port
holes between the chinks she felt yiat
she cuold stand off a fair sized party
of Indians.
"The first decade of Oregon history
was this log cabin decade. But it was
grand and beautiful and romantic. Out
of those log cabin homes, log cabin
schoolhouscs and log cabin meeting
houses came the stalwart men and
women of the territory. Those states
men, teachres and preachers have giv
en character to the whole state. We
ought to cherish their memories and
thank God for their environment."
Mr. Kennedy's mother, Mary A.
Kennedy, taught the first school in the
Mary's river country. "We children
all went with mother to school," says
Mr. Kennedy.
"Not long after the opening of that
log cabin school the people desired to
establish a school of college grade.
That call was answered by the selec
tion of Philomath." One of the early
graduates of Philomath, Prof. J. B.
Homer, of the University of Oregon,
is a warm personal friend of Mr. Ken
nedy. In a foreword to "The Pioneer
Campfire," Prof. Horner says: "In
the early morning or Oregon history
the author of 'The Pioneer Campfire'
became a prominent figure. He min
gled with the most active men and
women of the time. He uvea amidst
their activities. He heard them recite
Oreeon stories as tragic as the deeds
of Horatius, Casablanca and James
Fitziames. and he jotted them down in
his memory after he had talked heart
to heart with the Indians, inus tne
early history of Oregon became a part
of his being. Later, when his age
ripened, he recounted the Btories with
the coloring of pioneer days."
In writing of the Oregon Trail, Mr.
Kennedy refers to it as the Old Emi
grant Road. "That was the only name
by which it was known to the pio
neers," he says. "In the city park at
lhe Dalles is a monument marked:
'The end of the Oregon Trail, 1843
1859.' This is misleading. Very few
of the emigrants stopped there. The
Willamette Valley was their destina
tion. Oregon City was the real termi
nus and there the monument should be
placed. "
In 1857 Mr. Kennedy's father pur
chased a farm in Marion county in the
region of Belpassie academy. The
family removed there, and the children
grew to manhood in what Mr. Kennedy
terms "one of the choice communities
of Oregon."
The pioneer minister, however left
home in 1866 and attended Pacific Uni
versity at Forest Grove. He kept
bachelor's hall with Thomas H. Tongue
and Charles Hall. Other schoolmates
of Mr. Kennedy were the late Harvey
W. Scott, J. Q. A. Bowlby. Myron
Eels. Ed. Watson, Elkanah Walker.
George Atkinson, M. O. Lownsdale and
Cyras H. Walker.
While Mr. Kennedy was teaching at
Walla Walla in 1871 the Methodist
church held its quarterly conference
there. Kev. H. K. Hinee was presid
ing elder," he writes, "and Rev. H.
C. Jenkins, preacher in charge. They
called me into the council and said:
'Brother Kennedy, we think you ought
to preach the gospel. Will you accept
a license and go to work?' Of course
I had done much thinking about the
matter before, and 1 accepted immed
iately." Soon afterward he preached
his first sermon at tbe old mission
church at Walla Walla. His first
charge was a circuit embracing the en
tire Yakima Valley, now two counties.
In bis 42 years of ministry Rev.
Kennedy has travelled 80,000 miles in
filling appointments alone. He has re
ceived 300 persona into the church.
One hundred and fitfy couples have
been married by him. He has preached
4,000 sermons and has given 150 lec
tures and addresses. He has crossed
the Blue mountains 40 times and in
every possible way ef travel.
"1 am conscious," he says, "that 1
have laid up treasure in Heaven."
Toward the close of "The Pioneer
Campfire," the aged minister says:
"The highest conception of duty is
to know and obey the law of God: All
law begins and ends in our Lord's first
and great commandment supreme love
to God; and its corollary, the love of
fellow man. On these two hang all
my thology."
(Dispatch from Wenachee to Daily
Produce News, of Seattle.)
The Wenatchee Valley Fruit Grow
ers' Association received a telegram
this morning from Steinhardt & Kelly,
of New York city, complaining of the
auction and consignment system. It
"Many cars of Northwestern apples
are being sold throngh the auction
daily. The consignment men handling
Wenatchee apples, sold two cars of ex
tra and fancy Jonathans today. The
Extra fancy averaged $1.40; fancy,
$1.20. How can you, or any other as
sociation, ask us to buy from you at
the prices quoted, when your Growers'
Council permits this? Of what use is
the Growers Council if it does not im
mediately take steps to stop abuses of
this nature? We suggest that you see
Paulhamus and lay the matter before
him. Referring to the 25 cars of dif
ferent varieties which you want us to
buy, your prices are entirely too high,
according to present auction values.
Daily there is complaint of similar
abuses. While probably a third of the
valley crcp this year was handled on a
cash basis, yet consignment men are
getting some fruit, enough to demoral
ize the market.
The residence of Mr. and Mrs. Geo.
W. Thomson was the scene of a pretty
home wedding Thursday when their
daughter, Miss Wilma, became the
bride of Edgar Franz, a popular young
business man of the city. The nuptial
event was characterized by its quiet
ness and simplicity, only a few friends
and relatives being present. The cere
mony was performed by Rev. W. B
Young, of Asburv Methodist church
The bride was accompanied to the
bower of autumn leaves and flowers by
her father. After a wedding break
fast, served at the lhomsnn home, Mr.
and Mrs. Franz took the Portland and
Puget Sound Express for Portland,
where they have spent their honey
Both Mr. and Mrs. Franz are gradu
ates of the high school. Mr. Franz
was prominent in athletics, having
been a star member of both football
and baseball teams. His bride was a
member of the class of 'J5. Mr. Franz
is associated with his father in the
hardware and furniture business here.
News of the wedding spread quickly
among the younger set of the city, and
a crowd of 50 or more former school
mates assembled at the station to
shower the departing bride and groom
with rice, confetti and old shoes.
Mr. and Mrs. Franz will be at home
in the Duncan house on Cascade avenue.
