Tl e address was one of Mr. lAreys

Notliing that I eon id say would add to
or detract In the least from the grand

4-aily pioneers in this section of the

"As an instance of what tin pi.oners

to call your atwntion to the following:

ti II reiiHioberi'd. tveii to this d.iy. by
Tin's 4:irly settlors who were living in
this section "of tlie state at 4 hat time.
"As ih mothers f men have in the
past ' ltorne liiort than their shar of
tin trials in the advancement of the
world, so the pioimer women of Sou th
ei n' Oregon have contributed a great
deal lo bring a 1 tout the state of affairs
which exists 'today. Would like to
mt-iitl.m each one of them and give the
meitl of praise, to which each one is
i iitilleil. It is iin'toMsihle for me to do
so. It was 4the women who tended
those who from sickness or other
caisi were un.aMe to do their part. It
was the jiiAuiiT women who waited in
rain for .the. .home coming of those
wlio had lx-en aiiiliuslM-d and slain or
kilid in battle by the Indians. It fell
to their lot to ' keep ' the lone night
watches, minister to Jlw sick and dy
ing and stand watch and ward ovit
the homes that the mi-n were compell
ed to leave in their ".carfare with tho
Indians. I wish I liad tlw power to
priijusrly extol their virtnis. My words
.are hiad'-quate to express in appropri
ate language what the people of South
ern Oregon owe to the women for liiejr
gentleness, patience, sympathy and
