THE OLDEN TIME.
Hun. W. C. Jones waa Out- of the In-
ttreatlng; Speaker* liihl Week.
On Thursday of last week, which was
grange and pioneer day at Yep-Kanum,
Hon. W. C. Jones of Spokane was an
interesting speaker. Mr. Jones was In
troduced by John Rickey, until recently
president of the Stevens County Pio
neer Association, who has known the
speaker for thirty years and who was
one of the first to become acquainted
with the orator of the day when he
came to this country.
Mr. Jones, In opening his address,
named many of the earlier settlers, in
cluding W. V. Brown and Marcus Op
penhelmer of Mtrcus: John U. Hofstet
ter, Jacob Stltzel, Frances Wolf, An
drew Hughson, C. H. Montgomery and
John Wynne of Colvllle; L. W. Meyers
of Meyers Falls; George Lepray of Wal
ker's Prairie; Thomas Brown and Ja.nes
O'Neil of Chewelah, whose hospitality
he remembered and feelingly referred
*.o the fact that all of them have since
gone to their reward. Among those
living being John Rickey, Louis Perras,
George W. Harvey, Antoine Paradis and
A. R. Noyes.
Mr. Jones came to the state of Wash
ington from Minnesota in 18S3, and by
way of a pleasure trip into the Col
vllle country was joined by two news
paper correspondents, one representing
the Portland Oregonlan, and the other
the Cincinnati Enquirer, and by way of
an outing they left Spokane Falls In
the early part of May and proceeded to
Kettle Falls, exploring the Columbia
river from that point In both directions,
toward the British line and toward Fort
Spokane. The correspondent for the
Portland Oregonlan wrote up the trip
in the very perinent style known to
newspaper reporters In those days. In
reference to Mr. Jones In his story he
called him the "Mlnnesotian" and to the
Cincinnati Inquirer correspondent as
"the baby." The trip was made on
horseback, that being the only conven
ient means of passenger traffic, and Is
Interesting for the reason that It .-ecalls

W. C. JONES.
many familiar pioneer recollections a.nd
gives a vivid idea of what the new
comer to the country thought of it in
Ita really primitive condition.
It i\as the observations made by Mr.
Jones on this trip which decided him to
remain a citizen of Washington, since
which time he has been prosecuting at
torney of Stevens county, attorney gen
eral of the state, and a member of con
gress.
Following is the descriptive wrltj-up
which appeared in the Oregonian on the
28th day of May, 1883, almost thirty
years ago, and long years before a rail
road penetrated this prosperous region:
IN THE SADDLE, May 23, ISS3.
So much has been said in the Spokane
country about the beauties and advan
tages of the Colville valley by persons
who had conversed with residents, that
a party of three v as made up to view
the valley. The shortest route into the
valley is out from Spokane Falls; so
the party, consisting of a gentleman
with newspaper inclinations running
through his make-up, who was a resi
dent of Spokane Falls; a stranger from
Minnesota, doing the country for pleas
ure and the Oregonian's correspondent,
sallied forth from Spokane Falls. As
a matter of course, all the trouble of
preliminary arrangements had to be
gone through with, such as choosing a
good horse out of a herd of $15 cayuses,
filling saddle-bags with canned .foods,
getting the usual amount of snake-bite
cure, etc. After a great deal of dis
cussion, relative to the amount of solid
food and of liquids to be carried, this
* Important question was satisfactorily
settled, and, having donned blue flannel
shirts, suits of brown ducking and
white sombreros, we were ready to
start.
A ride of fifteen miles over a most
uninteresting piece of country, whose
only feature was its fine, gravelly soil,
which made a splendid roaiway,
brought us to Four Mound prilrie.
This piece of land is about one and a
half miles long aml possibly one mile
wide. The soil la very fair and well
watered, but scarcely could be called
first class on account of an outcropping
here and there of gravel and sand pe
culiar to land in the vicinity of Spokane
Falls. There are but two farms mder
cultivation, and those rather primitive,
although the entire prairie is taken up,
~the owners being for the greater part
citizens of Spokane Falls. From there
on to the bridge across the Spokane
river, known as the lower bridge, the
land can scarcely he called tillable, but
Is a splendid stock range. The briige
Is a good, strong affair, made wholly
of wood and owned by an Individual
who modestly taxes each horseman
fifty (fnts for crossing. Immediately
after crossing the river a perceptive
change can be seen in the general fea
tures of the country. The soil ueems
heavier and richer and the timber lnoks
larger and grows dense.
WALKfP.S PRAIRIE.
After a ride of about seven miles
Walker's prairie was brought to view.
This Is a narrow E'.rip of land probably
three miles long. Here can be found
i the best farm in the country, Dwned
by Guy Haynes, who went there In 1861.
A neat two-story frame house adorns
his place and all his out-buildings are
proportionately good. He has about
200 acres fenced and probably < n«
half of that under cultivation. He
states that he can and does raise from
forty to fifty bushels of wheat and
between three and three and a half
tons of timothy hay to the acre. This
valley Is watered by Chlmekane oreek,
on whose banks Father Eels established
a mission in 1838, but abandoned It
at the time of the Whitman mass-icre.
There are several other goods farm*
in the valley, but none near so produc
tive as that of Haynea'. The inhabi
tants have mail connection with Deep
creek falls, but none with the CoifUll
valley or Columbia river country. The
people of thlß little valley are very
hopeful of having a railroad through
their land within a short time. Their
idta is that the Northern Pacific tail
road will run a branch from Spokane
Falls to tap the entire Colvllle valley,
and the roadway in such a case would
necessarily be through Walker's prai
rie. The natural grade for the road
would be down the llig Spokane ilver
on the north side to within about four
miles of the lower bridge, where by a
very easy down grade Rattlesnake
prairie can be crossed, and iroin '.here
Into Walker's prairie would necessi
tate but little work, and Is In fact the
only practicable route. From this
point to the Columbia river would be
plain easy work and the entire distance
would not be more than ninety mllss.
At this place when about to proceed
on our Journey, a discussion arose be
tween the Mlnnesotlan and our Spokane
Falls friend as to the probability of the
Colvllle valley ever having a good sized
business town. The gentleman ,Yom
Spokane Insisted that a town In the
valley could never flourish, because
Spokane Falls would oppose It, while
our companion from the blizzard
plagued country claimed that no town
so far from Minneapolis as we in Col
vllle valley could ever amount to any
thing.
LONG PRAIRIE.
Leaving Walker's prairie we trav
eled In a timber belt about eighteen
miles before entering the next dealing,
known as Long prairie. This opening is
two and a half miles long and about
one-half mile wide, and very fertile.
Almost the entire prairie, however,
is over-flowed at this time of the year
on account of extreme high water In
the Sheep, Cottonwood and Jump-off
creeks, which unite at the head of the
valley, and whose waters are the lower
boundary of what is the Colville val
ley proper. This prairie In early times
was known as the Valley of Daath,
taking that name from the circum
stance of several trappers having died
there from eating poisonous berries.
On both sides of this prairie the moun
tains are very rich with limestone,
which has burned very successfjlly,
but for local use only. There are two
farms under cultivation, but as this
season is the first time the ground has
been broken, it is scarcely possible to
tell how the crop will result.
CHEWELAH VALLEY.
From here on into Chewelah valley
Is hard traveling on account of a mis
erably poor road which lays through
swampy lands to within a mile of the
postofflce, called Chewelah. The tim
ber bf-tween Loi;; Prairie and this p'.ace
is doubtless better than In any other
part of the valley. It grows very
straight and dense, and some of the
trees gain a diameter of between five
and six feet. The name Chewelah was
given to this postofflce by Mr. James
O'Neil, a brother to Dan O'Neil,. the
well-known river man, who took the
name from that given to the prairie
by the Indians. Upon meeting our
party nothing would satisfy Mr. O'Neii
but that we stop at his house; and al
though having to "batch" It, he made
us most comfortable and seems to have
the same knack as his brother in n.a
klng one feel at home by his genial
and pleasing manners. He entertiined
us with a splendid description of the
Colvllle valley of which he speaks in
the highest terms. Small fruits fcrow
here In wildest abundance; two crops
of wild strawberries growing each
season, while the mountains are literal
ly overrun with blackberry and -asp
berry bushes and mulberry and ch-jrry
trees. The average yield per acre in
this part of the valley Is from thirty
to lifty bushels of wheat, fifty to rtfty
flve bushels of oats and about three
tons of timothy hay. The entire valley
Is too frosty for corn to be grown suc
cessfully, the frost arising from the
extreme heavy dews which fall over
the valley. Mr. O'Neil occupies the po
sition of resident Indian farmer and
visits the Cover d' Alene, Okanogan and
Kalispell Indians. He says that they
are all moderately good farmers, with
the exception of the Spokanes, who are
a worthless set and will do nothing. He
speaks in most praising terms of the
Coeur d'Alenes who are In his esti
mation even much more lndustriou
than the whites, among whom trey are
located. Several mines are now being
worked in the mountains rorth of Che
welah, and are said to pay quite well.
A number of men are at work about
two miles north of the postofflce on a
quartz claim owned by Mr. O'Neil, who
expects the mine to pay handsomely
when he can procure proper means to
open It. He says that but four town
ships in the entire valley, viz: 33, 34,
35 and 36, range 39, have ever been
surveyed, and thinks that for this
itason it Is not more fully settled.
There are about one hundred and ."ven
ty-flve families in the valley, most of
whom are French and Indians, the
French having taken up claims after
the dlsbandment of the Hudson Bay
company, of which they were employes.
Most of them married squaws, and Ihelr
children are strong and active and tome
very Intelligent. Before leaving Che
welah the party returned to the en
trance into the valley to Inspect an
Indian burying ground, which we had
passed In coming In, but on account
of a heavy rainfall did not stop. It Is
about fifty feet square, neatly Inclosed
with a picket fence, painted white, and
each grave Is ornamented both after
the Indian and civilized fashions. Over
every grave a little hilt, on whose raf
ters many articles belonging to de
ceased during life, are placed. Each
grave Is finished In a little mound, at
one end of which a nicely painted
hoard gives the inline and date of death
of the deceased, while at the other end
stands a crucifix, which is carved by
a relative or friend of the dead. Di
rectly over the cross Is a little triangu
lar-shaped flag benring a Latin Inscrip
tion; but the education of the under
signed was neglected in this particular
study, and he .s;is satisfied with tak
ing the word of the Mlnnesotlan who
felt confident that the Inscription was
Latin, but could not translate It. Upon
our return to Chewelah, we were ,j neil
The ColviUe Examiner, Saturday, October 5, 1912
by Mr. O'Nell, who accompanied ue
several miles on our lourney. When
about four miles out, at the ranch of
Peter King, side by side, not more
than six feet apart were two large
springs, one highly Impregnated with
iron, while the other was so at "ong
with sulphur as to make it nauseous.
A phial of water from the sulphur
spring has been sent to a chemist in
Portland for analysis, as It In supposed
along with the sulphur. It seams
to contain other mlnaral properties
strange that the springs, while so
along with the sulphur. It seems
not even a strata of rock between them,
should be so differently Impregnated.
ALTOGETHEH EXTHANEOUS.
From this point to our stopping
place at noon was but a short distance,
so that we jogged along at a lazy pace,
and a conversation was started con
cerning our horses and their rel.itlve
merits. I asked the Spokanlan why
he called his horse Henry VUlard, and
he answered because he was always
haunted with a fear that the animal
would stumble and fall before reach
ing his goal, the Columbia river. The
Mlnnesotlan had named his horse 'Vln
dom, in honor of the last unsuccessful
candidate for the senate from lilm na
tive state, and gave for his reasons,
that no difference how poor a lot of
stock (referring to my noble cayuse)
was put against him for a race, he In
variably got left. He also said that he
firmly believed If the ex-senator tried
to gain his desire with nothing entered
against him, he would either drop 'lead,
or stop on the road to interfere In some
petty local affair, but certainly ,v,>uld
never get there. I had dubbed my lit
tle mare Ophelia, because of her gen
tle, confiding disposition and .uvret
ways. At one time on the Journey she
was so affectionate that while on a
rapid gallop she stopped short to turn
her head toward me in the saddle and
he petted. She, however, was sorely
disappointed, for, although she stopped
very suddeuly and with apparent tase,
I seemed to have some business ahead
and sat down in the middle of the road
to transact it.
TOWARDS COLVILLE.
Arriving at our stopping place at
noon we were agreeably surprise 1 to
find a very nicely furnished farm,
owned by Jasper Roberts. He told us
he had been there twenty-two years
and had a hundred acres under culti
vation. His farm Is well stocked with
latest Improved machinery, and Its
general appearance brings an eastern
farm into one's mind. He has quite a
herd of cattle and horses, but only a
few sheep. When asked whether It
did not pay to raise wool, he statod
there ought to be more money In it
than anything else on a farm, but on
account of the great number of coyotes
in the valley, unless the sheep <vere
carefully herded at Jill times they wojld
be carried off—so many as ten In one
night—and that his market was -jo far
from home that it did not pay to hire
herders and go t^ the expense of iiaul
ing. His nearest postofflce Is Che
welah.
OPPENHEIMER'S MILL..
We left this pleasant little stopping
place about 2 o'clock, and, after riding
two hours, arrived at Oppenhelmer's
flouring mill, of which we had heard
everyone in the valley speak, and
■which even the Chicago (?) of the Pa
cific coast, Spokane Falls, gives credit
with turning out better flour than can
be purchased in Walla Walla. It Is
a quaint looking old building, made
principally of logs, and stands in a lit
tle corner against the mountain on the
bank of the Kallspell river. Going in
side, the first thing that attracts one's
attention Is the total absence of that
creaking noise and jarring peculiar to
all other mills. Not a single piece of
Iron shafting, no pulleys, connecting
rods or gearing of any kind can be
seen. Everything is made of wood.
The shaft and pulleys are large, cum
brous looking tilings, but run easily
and without the least notse, and, with
an old turbine water wheel, were all
made by hand, from timber cut on the
hillside. Even one of the millstones
was taken from a bed of granite on
the neighboring hill. It has a capacity
of about thirty barrels per day, al
though It Is seldom called upon to turn
out that amount. D. F. Ferguson &
Co. first built the mill In 1857 and run
it until about two years ago. From the
miller's estimate there was about 20,
--000 bushels of wheat raised In the val
ley last year, and he thinks this year's
crop will be at least double that. Not
only on account of new farms having
been taken up, but all the old farmers
have fenced new land this season and
are cultivating It as rapidly as pos
sible. The Kalispell river, which fur
nishes power tor the mill, takes its ori
gin in Kalispell lake, some times known
as the little Pend Orlelle lake, and emp
ties in the Colvllle river a few miles
below the mill. It has never been
known to fail, and, as a rule, furnishes
too much water, which goes to wasto
over the flood gates. This stream, from
a few miles above the mill up to Its
source, Is a fisherman's perfect para
dise, swarming with both lake and
brook trout.
After leavlntf the mill the road leads
on through a rather pretty country to
the new town jf Colvllle. This reali
zation of the Ideas of a man named
Steel, consists of v brewery, a store
and two or three residences. It is situ
ated on a little plat, and has none but
the old Colville road running into It.
Before entering the town we passed
through some < verHoweJ land oh
which several head of horses were
turned out, and the Minnesotian made
the rather amusing remark that he did
not go on a country where horses had
to dive for graaa. From the new town
to Fort Colvllle proper Is about four
miles, the two placed being divided by
a range of hills. The fort is entirely
deserted by the military, but one luild
lng now being occupied, and that by
Mr. J. Stitzel, clerk of the Stevens
county court, an-1 who, by the way, Is
an old resident of Portland. We spent
the night with him and were treated
very hospitably. He has a flne lanch
a few miles from the fort, and se«ms
perfectly contenUd.
A DIHCII'I^E CF HENKY BKK 111.
At this place ■ little Incident ocr-tired
which Is worth mentioning, and goes
plainly to prove that a cayuae has no
more feeling for a human being than
an Apache Indian. When about to re
tire for the night, our companion from
Spokane Falls, who, by the way, la a
nice, well behaved, Sunday achool fort
of a man, went into the Held where our
)ior*n> were aucurely hobbled, und
grazing In pea^e and quiet. Seeing
their helpless condition, with two feet
tied together, his heart softened
toward them and he took off all the
hobbles. Cumin* in the house where
the Mlnneiotlan was punching us with
a story uliout a billiard which blow an
Iron pump and thirty-live feet of pipe
out „! the ground, the S| okanln i en
tered and bluihlnglly told us of his
generous uctl i' . The MinneHO\lr.n
looked up while his face began to
lengthen, and with a heart-rendering
look of disgust spread all over it, re
mark*,l t-j tlio iookanlan: 'You aro the
beat traveling companion 1 ever saw
In my life, if ] could find another
match for you I would have you made
Into sleeve buitons, and could then
keep you With Ota all the time." The
■pokanlan thinking he had been high
ly complemented, smiled blandly us he
passul Into lila bedroom, remarking
Bonit-Lliliig about dumb brutes and re
ligi"h, which, however, fell Hat. The
poor Mlnneiotlao took his medicine
very haul, and during the entire night
coul.l be beard muttering about come
ttttnpliool, cussed idiot, etc. The fol
lowing morning we sent the Spokan
lan out to drive in the horses and he
dM—along about 7 o'clock that even-
Ing. He looked so weary and dejected
that we took pity on him and told him
how while he was gone, we went fish
ing and played bi-ven-up; had trout for
dinner, und toasted our shins before
the fireplace in the afternoon while It
ralniil »o hard, etc. He did not seem,
however, to take much Interest In our
sport, but afte.- swallowing a hasty
supper land hobbling every cussed one
of the cayusesi he retired to his bed
a sailder and wiser Spokane Falls spec
ulator.
COLVILtiE.
The following morning we proceed
ed on our Journey towards old Fort
Colvllle. which is utiout sixteen nilea
from the military post. We took the
trail across the mountains, which of
course wns rotn.;li, but very plcturewiiie
and lyliiK throUgti the timber, we were
rinded from the scorching sun. Mr.
Stltzel had told ub that the view from
the mountain down on the Colu-ibia
was very pretty, tut we were in no way
prepared for the grand spectacle that
lay before us when we readied the edge
of tlm mountain and looked upon the
beautiful little valley. We were prob
ably 1000 feet above and about three
miles illHtant from the Columbia, and
the picture spread before us requires
for description an abler pen than mine.
From the foot of the mountain to the
river the land was most all under tul
tlvatlnn, and from our elevation each
farm looked like a beautiful >;a''den
spot— all green and growing—while
the lung lines of fence and huts ami
outbuildings with their more esober
hue, with the majestic river moving
alont,' one aide and stately mountain!
nun--urnlinn- it on all others, as if
placeil there to protect It, the little val
ley seemed a fairy land. After de
scending into the valley by a Winding
and rather perilous trail a ride of about
three miles brought us to the river
at the old English boundary commis
sion's furt, where we stopped with Mr.
W. V. Brown, who has a trading post
there. He has been In the valley B'iout
twenty years and has almost the rame
comforts at his place that one would
find In an old an well-settled country.
We crossed the river In a canoe the
same evening to take a look at the old
Colvllle reservation. This is alnost
entirely deserted, the Indians for the
greater part having taken up "arms
among the whites, away fiorn the land
Het out for them by the government,
A SETTLER'S VIHW OF MOSKS.
Upon our return to Mr. Brown's In
the evening, be explained very Intel
ligently the Moses trouble with the
government, and said ills senttmonts
had been echoed by everyone who .spoke
about it In the whole \alley. Mr.
Brown states that In the first olace
Moses misrepresented while In Wash
ington that he had control over 1000
warriors, and got the reservation con
taining 3600 square miles of som-< of
the best land In the territory by prom
ising to prevent them from taking part
iisalnst the whites In the Nez I'erces
war. He has not by actual count fifty
warriors and will not be recognized
by any of the Indians as a chief. He
has never lived on the reservation and
Is acting "the dog in the manger,' and
will allow no noe else to live there.
Two miners who were seeking a claim
on this land which they took up long
before It was set aside for a reserva
tion, have been ordered off by both the
Kovernment and Moses, but refused to
leave. The government then took that
part occupied by the miners away
from Moses, who wants 110,000 for it.
That Is about the story as Mr Brown
told It. To use Ills own expression,
"Mosee cannot raise enough men to
lake a ranch ay.ay from one able
bodied man."
TRANSPORTATION AND EDUCATION.
The same evening we met Cantaln
I'lngson, who was captain of the old
19, which ran from Kettle falls up the
river from 1885 to 187«. He Hays that
the greatest Impediment to navigation
above Kettle falls Is the little dalles,
which are about twenty-five miles dis
tant and navigable nine months if the
year. He thinks the boats will 'igaln
lie put on the river, within a short time,
lo rur in connection with the Canadian
I'aclflc and Kootenal railroads. The
old fort at which Mr. Brown stays, was
built by the Btltlsh boundary commis
sion In 1861 and occupied two winters.
The buildings are still In fair qondl
tlon, and are made exclusively of I OKA
The old Hudson Bay fort Is about a
half a mile down the river, and is al
molt entirely ruined by lime. It was
built In 1118 and occupied In 1870.
nlong side this furl is an old Jesuit mil
lion, which was established 111)835 and
abandoned In IHB9, when a new one was
built farther up the river and midway
between the Hudson Bay and military
fort. It Is conducted under the super
vision of Father Carnan, and Is well
attended. He has about fifty Indian
and half-breed girls under tuition; al
so about half that number of boys, for
whose education the government on
nually donates |SOOO. Several vhlte
children are also In attendance there
.'nil are charged $6 per month, which
Includes board and lodging. A district
NChool Is hue—ton, and has an average
attendance of about sixteen. Almost
the entire mouth of the valley is under
cultivation, and the Tarmors, with those
of the entire valley from Sheep creek
up, are anxiously awaiting the time
when a railroad will run through 'i.idr
country and carry their products to
a seasonable market.
Even Heat Night and
Day Means Health
Cole's Original Air Tight Wood Heater will
give you more home comfort for the money you
spend for fuel than you have ever had beforo.
The floor can be heated perfectly—equal to
to the work done by high priced base flued
heaters. This remarkable quick-heating stove
wonder can be regulated to keep fire and heat
over night, using wood for fuel.
You do not have to get up in the cold to kindle
a new fire every morning as with other stoves.
The two basic principles which make a suc
cessful, economical wood heater—one that will
stand abuse and give lasting satisfaction, are—
First—An absolutely air-tight construction,
giving a perfect control over the fire.
Second —A large, sensitive radiating surface,
which responds quickly to the fire and radiates all
the heat from a slow, perfectly controlled, econ
omical combustion of the fuel.
These basic principles are embodied in Cole's
Original Air Tight Wood Heater and make it the
most economical heater ever produced — for
wood, cobs and trash.
Made in all sizes—seven styles—Price $3.00
and up.
