INDIAN NAM !:-. AND INTERPRETATIONS.
Tliu Cbipewa word for the
Mississippi can be better appreciated after
viewing the river at its highest stage.
The word Mississippi is derived from
"Me-ye-way," meaning everywhere, ami
"See-Bee," and literally means, "a river
that runs everywhere." It lms been rend
ered to me, both as the uncontrolable, and
the endless river, but never aa the Fatter of
Before ita settlement by white men,
Winona was the scene of many a hard
fought battle. Tho Hanks claimed this
territory and made a number of raids up
on Wa-pa-sha's bands, but were finally
repulsed with such loss, inflicted by Wah-con-de-o-tah,
the great war chief, that
they gave up the contest. Not so with
the Chippewa's, they continued their in
cursions long after tho white settlers of
the pineries had established themselves
among them, and until the stoppage of
their annuities by the government. "Ke-che-gum-me,"
"The Great Water" Lake
Superior was their headquarters, but
they also occupied the territory tributary
to Rum, St. Croix, Chippewa, Black and
Wisconsin rivers, and by means of light
birch bark canoes, made portages into
and down these rivers, creating a panic
wherever their war-whoop was heard.
"Ke-che-kah-be-gong,-' "The Great Water
Fall'' St. Anthony's was most accessible
to them and was therefore most avoided
by the Dacotahs, who rejoiced when Cols.
Snelling and Leavenworth were Anally es
tablished among them as peacemakers.
Wa-pa-sha, the tirst Dacotah chief of
the name, was so called because on re
turning from a trip to Canada he brought
with him a red flag and a scarlet uniform,
given him by command of the British gov
ernment. The names for a red flag and a
red cap appear to differ only in accent,
and hence Wah-pa-sliu was known lioth
as the chief of the red flag and of tho red
cap. Tho sister and nephew of tho first

M. ('., AT THE CHIFPUWA COUNTY FAIR.
When I heard that you had purchased
grounds and were to have a fair, I said to
myself if I live and can get away from
the wranglinga of congress, I will surely
attend Chippewa county's first fair. Mem
ories of other and more primitive days
came to me ; days when thero were no
farmers proper, but a few venturesome
jobbers, between logging eeasons, made
faithless and fruitless attempts to caress
what was thought to he a cold and barren
soil. I remembered the McCann farm,
and how Uncle Steve was derided for his
(as it was characterized) foolhardy effort,
and how the bold Trepannia, Merning,
Mclntyre, Hoover, Maloney, Woodruff,
Richardson, and others, to be counted on
your fingerB, alternated doubtingly be
tween the logging sled and tho plow. I
remembered when, as book-keeper for a
logging firm twenty-three year ago, I
had entered up to the debit of these same
parties, as jobbers, corn at $2 per cwt.,
pork at $T0 to $60 per bbl., and flour at
$20 per bbl., which -articles were pur
chased in Galena and brought up the
Chippewa river in keel boats; and there
was another commodity which older set
tlers will remember was brought up in
somewhat larger quantities than either
pork or flour, tho leakage of which, it is
said, cheered the sturdy crew. It has
not altogether gone out of use at the
present time. I remember that later, in
the winter of 1899-60, when, by reason of
reverses in lumbering, the demand for
logging supplies was nearly suspended, of
being associated in the purchase, for
speculation, of the surplus oats and wheat
marketed here ; that they amounted to
but a few hundred bushels, were stored
in a barn, and sold at a loss two years
One year ago, when traveling up into
Barren county, I was startled by the
marvelous improvements which I saw for
forty continuous miles north of this city,
territory upon which I hod sported for
game a few years lefore, and which was
thought to be suited only for the support
of prairie chickens, grouse, and scanty
deer, I found, as by magic, converted in
to fine farms, fairly fenced, cultivated,
anfl otherwise improved.
HON. PETER PARKINSON AT OLD SETTLERS'
We were strangers in a strange
land, promiscuously thrown together
from all Mwts of the United States, and
many other portions of the habitable
glolx?, and a more noble, a more generous,
whole-souled, kindlier, obliging, deter
mined, persevering, and go-ahead set of
men were never in any country, or under
any circumstances thrown together, than
were the noble pioneers of the northwest.
We come together as a band of broth
er, extending the right hand of friend
ship and fellowship to each other, and
pledging mutual assistance in times of
danger and in times of need, and it affords
mo unspeakablo pleasure to state (and I .
know that every old settler will War me
witness when I do make the statement)
that no promises or pledges that were
ever made by mortal man, have ever
been more promptly or more faithfully
The generous and liberal hand of the
pioneer has always been open to assist
the needy, and his strong arm has ever I
been ready to defend the defenceless. Wo ,
were an isolated people, shut out from all
the rest of mankind to some extent, near-
ly one thousand miles from the nearest
points from which supplies of any kind,
either in times of peace or times of dan
ger, could be obtained; in a cold and
rigid climate, without money, without j
provisions, and without any of the muni
tions and equipments of war, surrounded
by savage and hostile Indians, who were
liable at any moment to wago war upon
us, and who did. upon two occasions, wago
war, and notwithstanding the destitute
and defenceless condition of the country,
; and notwithstanding the terror which this
kind of foe generally inspired, the little
band of pioneers were neither dismayed
1 or daunted, but bdldly stood their ground,
and under the leadership of tho bold and
gallant Dodge, tho Indians wero met, re
pulsed, and driven out of the country,
and in a short time tho country was re
stored to peace and prosperity. To
the wise counsels, industry, and enter
prise of our pioneers knd old settlers
generally, who stand to-day as perpetual
DM iMUMBtl of the triumphs of honesty, in
. tegrity, and industry we are indebted for
our present prosperity.
WISCONSIN HISTORY BY CiBO. B. SMITH.
Wisconsin has had an eventful history.
It is claimed that as early as 1631), only
; nineteen years later than the landing of
tho Pilgrims at Plymouth Rock, and long
before the settlement of William Penn at
Philadelphia, the French Jesuits had via
j ited what is now Green Bay with a view
! to a permanent settlement at that place.
It is certain that as early as 1665 a set
i tlement commenced at La Pointe, on Lake
I Superior, which it is claimed continues to
; this time. It is also certain that about
this time, and not later than 1669, a con
siderable settlement of French Jesuits
Iwgan in the vicinity of Green Bay, traces
of which early occupation and settlement
are still visible at both places. Wisconsin
was also the great highway over which
! the Jesuit explorers passed in search of
' the Mississippi river and the unknown
sea. In the year 1673, Fathers Marquette
J and Joliet passed up the Fox river from
1 Green Bay, and down the Wisconsin
i river, in search of the Father of Waters,
j On the 17th of June, of that year, they
I discovered it at the mouth of the Wiscon
sin river, near where now stands Prairie
These men and many others came to
i this wild and lonely region, mainly to
; bring religion and civilization to tho In
i dians; incidentally they came on a voy
age of discovery.
There was another, and in many re
Bpects a greater than these, who came to
1 explore purely in tho interests of con
quest and commerce. 1 refer to La Salle,
; who, in 16S0, with his little party and his
faithful and famous friend, Tonti, discov
ered the Mississippi river Ptill further
south, in what was then called the Illinois
country, now the state of Illinois. After
ward he followed the river to the Gulf of
Mexico. This man of wonderful enter
prise, wondrous foresight, and iron ener
gy, even then dreamed that the Valley of
the Mississippi might, even in his time,
become what it is now the garden and
glory of the world. Still later, and all
the way down to the time when it was
finally owned and occupied by the United
States, Wisconsin continued to have a re
markable and eventful history, until it
was finally organized into a separate ter
ritory in lS3ti, when the people then here
were invested with the great American
boon of self government.
PranlffTOtO lTM, a period of ninety
three years. Wisconsin was owned by and
was under the government of France.
From 1763 to 1794, a period of thirty-one
years, it was owned and governed by j
Great Britain. For six years, from 1704
to 1800 it was governed by Virginia "d ,
Ohio. For nine years, from 1800 to 13)7,
it was under the goveVnment of Indiana.
From 1800 to 1818 it was governed by Ill
inois, and from 1818 to 1836 was under tho
government of Michigan. Thus it will le
seen that for a period of one hundred and
sixty years, fh territory which now com
prises this inairniticent state was the mere
foot ball of nations, states and territories.
Since this territory came under tho gov
ernment of Illinois it has had a somewhat
curious, as it had before a remarkable
With regard to tho loundary of Wis
consin there have been almost as many
changes as in its government. The ter
ritorial charter contained this article:
"That if congress shall hereafter find it
expedient, they shall have authority to
form one or two states in that part of said
territory which lies north of an east and
west lino drawn through the southerly
bend or extreme of Lake Michigan." By
the express terms of the ordinance it was
forever to remain unalterable, unless by
common consent. Such continued to be
the north lino of Illinois and the southern
boundary of Wisconsin, until 1818, when
Illinois was admitted into the Union as a
state. Then congress, in establishing the
boundaries of this state, extended its
north line nearly sixty miles north of the
line established by the ordinance of 1787,
and this was done without the consent of
Wisconsin. Indeed, it was dono at a time
when there wero but few hereto object,
and it was done in such haste that those
few had no opportunity to object. Tho
part thus taken from Wisconsin embraces
the fourteen northern counties of Illinois,
the richest and most populous part of that
state, including, of course, tho city of
The ordinance of 1787, although mado
unalterable, was changed in this particu
lar, but time and circumstances havo
sanctioned the change, and it is now, in
deed, unalterable. The solemn compact
of the ordinance of 1787 was disregarded,
nd Wisconsin deprived of a very im
portant and immensely valuable part of
Its territory, in order that Illinois, just
then to bo admit ted as a state, might be
more firmly bound to the Union fcy identi
fying her, through tho great lakes, with
the eastern states and northern interests.
Wisconsin was thus early sacrificed and
dismembered in the interest of the Union
and of peace.
On two other memorable occasions Wis
consin has leen shorn of its proportions
in the interest of peace, but yet she now
stands, and must always stand, foremost
among the states of the Union.
Wisconsin was destined to suffer and
socrifico still more in the interest of peace,
If not in the interest of the Union. After
Michigan and Ohio had quarreled and
fairly come to blows over their bound
aries, the matter was finally settled and
the parties appeased, if not satisfied, by
congress giving to Michigan, as a com
pensation in part for the strip of her ter
ritory given to Ohio, that portion of the
country on Lake Superior In twoen the
Straits of Mackinaw and Montreal river,
directly north of us, and which by every
consideration justly belongs to the state
of Wisconsin. , ,
Again, when the Webster treaty was
made in 184'J with Great Britain more of
our territory, lying to the extreme north,
was taken from us and given to England,
in the interest of peace, and again we
submitted without a murmur.
In the year 173 settlements first bfgan
at Prairie du Chein, Wisconsin, and after
wards, perhaps as early as 1800 or 1805,
some few settlements were made in the
southwestern part of the state by persona
attracted by the lead mines in that sec
tion. But it is said that the Sauk or Black
1 lawk war of 1832, did more than any
thing else to turn the attention of emi
grants and others to this country. It
broaght it into general notice throughout
tho whole United States and abroad.
From this time it began to settle rapidly,
so that in 1836 enough people from the
states settled here to justify its organiza
tion into a territorial government, which
was done by act of congress, approved
April 26, 1836. On the 3d of July follow
ing the people then in Wisconsin began to
Under the territorial system of govern
ment the people were in some sense sub
oi d ma ted to the congress of the United
States. Although their career had been
one of i hi paralleled aucceaa, it ia indiaputa
ble that by this time they had become
restive and uneaay, under the, seeming
vassalage of the situation, so that every
body expressed the wish to form for them
selves a constitution, and be admitted in
to the Union as an independent state, or,
as we expressed it at that time, "a sov
ereign, independent state." The legisla
ture, therefore, heeding this general pub
lic sentiment, passed a law on the 31st of
January, 1846, providing for a convention
and for the election of delegates to form a
constitution. Delegates were elected,
and on the 5th day of October of tho same
year, they asfembled at the capitol in
Madison and proceeded at once to the dis
charge of that duty. This brings us to a
very remakablo period in the history of
Wisconsin. It is proper to say that this
convention of 1840 was composed of some
of tho oldest settlers of tho territory, and
some of the ablest men that, have ever
taken a part in the public affairs of Wis
consin. Many of our associates who met with

The state, as we have seen, has had a
varied fortune and a singular history, but
ever since its organization into a territory,
in 1836, it has advanced in rapid strides,
with uninterrupted and unparalleled pros
perity, to its present acknowledged high
position among the states of the Union.
All of its duties to the general govern
ment in every emergency have been hon
orably and faithfully performed. The
rights of its citizens have been scrupu
lously protected by a fair and able admin
istration of justice.
DAVID ATWOOD AND H. A. TENNEY ON PIO
It is probable that tho population west
of Lake Michigan in 1820 numbered about
two hundred families; in 1830 they had
increased to about five hundred; in 1840
to about nine thousand, and in 1848 to
about forty thousand. These may bo
properly classed as the pioneers, although
many thousands speedily following in a
few years may not inappropriately Im
classed in the same category, so far aa
such a record is concerned. Of all these
years survivors may still bo found. The
territorial era was marked by no pro
vision to preserve genealogical evidence
ifor futuro use. It required no birth
record; its marriages wero in the main
unrecorded, and as for deaths, even tho
cemeteries have for tho most part been
obliterated. But little remains except
what each family has recorded for its own
use, or tho press, in a casual manner.
Concentrated, this would bo of value; dif
fused, it is unavailable for use.
Of the foreign immigration it is con
ceived that the early-comers generally
have some record of their ancestry be
yond tho sea; they know the ship that
brought them over, the date, place of
settlement, and incidents that havo fol
lowed. It has occurred to us to urge up
on our editorial brethren, and perhaps tho
clergy of all denominations would assist,
to awaken attention to tho subject; to
adviso pioneer families, either as persons
or by neighljorhoods, to compile and print
the family record, so that each member
may have copies, and that one be sent to
the historical society for preservation.
The cost of printing would be very small,
and the product, if generally adopted, in
valuable in the future. When the north
west has reached its centennial year,
about tho year 1948, family records of
pioneer times, so little thought of now,
will be esteemed of great and permanent
value. The ancestry of a new nation is
ever a matter of high interest to suc
ceeding generations. The error most like
ly to be committed is that too little and
not too much will be saved.
GOV. WM. H. SMITH
in speaking of the bright side of pioneer
life said that but few would shrink from
living the old life over again. The pio
neers had a mission to found new states,
and their work is unexcelled. While
nono expected the glorious results at
tained, all labored arduously, as though
an early fruition of their works were pos
sible. In the name of the 1,500,000 peo
ple who had grown up in this common
wealth founded by them, the governor
gave them honor.
at a pioneer meeting said, that if the
meeting was a failure it would be the
first one tho pioneers had ever made.
They were not men given to failure.
Broadcloth was at a discount in
early days. A man who woro a black
coat was generally supposed to be a
gambler. His own first reception in this
country was at a house where the woman
turned him and Judge Flint out because
they wore broadcloth, and sho was certain
tbey must be gamblers. He remembered
many pleasant pioneer days, and would
not object to living them over again.
came to the northwest in 1834, and would
like to tell how they lived in those days
when all was freedom and hospitality.
Ladies were scire.- in those days, but
they appeared more charming in their
calicos and ginghams than they do to-day
'in satin and sill;. Men would risk their
lives to protect them. While there wero
more hardships in early days, men were

though the country had greatly improved
the people were not any more warm

and a dance would draw people sixty

had been in the west thirty-five years,
and was glad to say that they had been
years of peace and prosperity. He spoke
of an article written by Franklin, saying
that before tho end of the eighteenth cen
tury white men would have settled west
of Lake Erie. He alluded to the first
time he had ever heard of Chicago, when
a fort was being built there and several
families had moved in. He considered
that the happiest stage of society waa
during the pioneer period. Mr. Morton
drew a contrast between the liberal laws
of the western states and those of Massa
chusetts and other eastern states, and
said that it was due to the pioneers.

I recall to mind MM of the hardest and
most blustering cold winters that it has
ever been my lot to experience. But in
spite of the inclemency of tho weather,
the bitter cold, scarcity in those days of

started at nearly sunset, one New Years'

In a short time night came on, with no
moon, and only a few twinkling ftars to
guide us on our uncertain way. Fences
in those days were tew, while lanes were
never once thought of. We soon reached
a broad prairie where the snow lay piled
in great drifts, if not mountain high, at
least so high as to be well nigh impasssa
ble. The road track, if there had been
one, was obliterated, and wo were wan
dering aimlessly about. Our horses soon
became tired and confused, as well as
their drivers. After a number of hours'
rambling over that treeless, trackless
plain we succeeded in reaching the other
side of the valley, when our team became
too exhausted to go another rod.
