(■MAS miv Neah bay, Clallam coanty. Tbi» come* from the name of a Makah chief whoM name wu Neah.or, rather. Dee-ah. Makah, or Makkah.Clallam couaty, means the people who lire o» a point of land projecting into the ees, or the cape people. K linnet i* another t.ame by other In dian* for the *ame people, and means the same as Ilakah. Clallam is the name of a coanty and comes from the Indian tribe of that name, which was originally written B'Klallam It b said by the Clallam Indians to be a corruption of their own name for themselves, Nu-sklaim, meaning ' strong people. " More prob ably, however, it comes from the Makah name forthem, meaning "clam people." from'• klolnb," a clam, and " abt," a man. Me-quim, Clallam coanty, is a cor ruption of the Indian Aarae for the lame place, which is "Hucbekivaiing." HkokomLsh, Mason coanty, comes from the Indian name for themselves of the Indian- living there, which was fj'kaw kaw-bi-h, which the Ciallams call S'kaw-kawmish. It mean* "river people. 1 ' from kaw, fre»h water, the Bkokomish river being the largest body of fre-h water in that region. The termination "iui»h" or "lush," so common on the Sound, means people, the Hkokomi«h word for people lieing "klowolbish," and that of Use lower Cbehalis Indiaus. alahtni«h Twaua is a corruption from Too-ati bu, the original name of the tribe, of which the Skokomi h Indians were one baud, and is said by Oeorge (iibbs to be reported to mean, "a portage" because a short portage across the head of Hood's canal will »ave a water trip around the (.eninsula by way of Port Gamble; bat I have never been able to verify It. though I have often inquired ef the Indians. Chehalis, n-me of river, county and town, is pronounced by Hie Indians Tse-ha-li*. and bv some early writers wa* written Chickelis. It means "Mind," and wa< given to the Indians about the river's mouth because of tbc sand there, and hence the early settlers gave the river and upper <'be half < Indiana the same name, though originally neither was called by this name bv the Indians. Wishkah, Cbehalis county, is a cor ruption of the Cbehalis name Hwish kalil, and means "stinking water." Skookum Cbuck. Thurston county, is from the Chinook jargon, and means "strong or swift water." Skookura comes originally from the Chehali* word sku-kuui, strong, and chuck, water, from the word Tl-tsuk, in the old Chinook language, which m Nootka is Chauk, and Clatsop, Tlcbukw. Skookum bay. Mason county, has the same origin and was given to the bay because the tides rush througn it with great swiftness. Tumwater. Thurston county, is a Chinook jargon word.meaning "water fall." It originated from the English word 'water," and "turn" by onomatapolia, an the sound of the waterfall reminded people of that sound. Ho "tmi'um tha word In the same language for heart. was given to it because of the noi-e of the treating of the heart, which reminded them of such sounds. Tacoma means in tbe Manually language "the mountainbut it was not given to it by the Indians, as their name for it was I.uwak -hu or Twa whauk. KrattW- was the ii»inc of an Indian chief, who w*i very frieniily to the whites A, a rule the names of In dian* on Pujjel hound have no more meaning than those of America. Kitsap lounty runiM from a chief of that name. Tulalip, county, means a wide hay with a small mouth. Htila«|uamish means "river j>eoplc." Nook sack, Whatcom county, it the name of a tril*\ but has no meaning Snohomish is the name of a tribe and stylo of union. sno*|tuUuiie is not of nr h account, but they are strong Indians. Tcekaiet, the former name of Tort Qamble, Kitsap county, means "the brightness of the noon ay nun," be cause the sun at noon *htnaa with |»e culiar splendor on Port UamMe bay LA Push, Clallam county, is a Chi nook jargon word ami means "mouth," meaning at that place the mo i ill of the river It comes from the Vrench "l>a Tatoiksh.

Cathlamet, Wahkiakum county, is written Cathlamah by Lewis and C.larke. and was the name of a tribe of Indians as weli as a stream It evi dentiy comes from the Indian word •'Calamct," meaning "-tone,' and is believed to have been given to the river because of the fat t that it has a atony bed along its whole course. Kalaina is lieiieved to U* simply a corruption of the above word Calaniet "stone." I.a Camas, Clarke county, is the Chi nook jargon name for an esculent root It comes Iron* the French la" and the Nootka wonl ' « hama» whit h Jewett says means "fruit, saeet. pleasant to taste ."
