ORIGIN OF NAME
WALLOWA GIVEN
WRITER IN LA GRANDE STAR
TELLS OF SURVEY MADE 43 ,
YEARS AGO.
Now that there are. many nartlei
fishing on Wallowa river, and on the
Minam, It is interesting to note thai
the word "Wallowa" means "fish
trap" in the Indian tongue, says
the La Grande Star. Years ago,
during the time of the Josephs
In Wallowa county, the Indians were
accustomed to catchtn many fishes
in Wallowa river with traps. These
traps were left from one season to
the next on the banks of the river,
and the old timers aay that thea
traps looked like crosses standing
out In the distance.
The present spe ling of the worj
"Wallowa" was adopted In 1866.
A party of surveyors under Willia-n

"Wnat ,s tha nam of thla river?-"
asked one o: the surveyors, paint

Ing be!ow them.
"Wal-lo-wa," replied a brave ir
gutteral voice, making three dlj
tlnct syllables of th word.
"Take out your pencils and wrl
that down, b3ys," said William H
ODflU.
Almost every member of the sj
veylng plirty did as requested, an
banded his word to O'Dell. Two men
had spelled the name "Wallowa
and this orthography was according
ly adopted. One of those who spel -ed
the name "Wallowa" was L.J.
Rouse, one of Enterprise's most e
teemed citizens, who died in Port
land two years ago last spring. Hi
memory is honored and reverence
as one who gave the better part o
his life to. the development of the
county whose name he first transfe:
rea rrom the Indian to the EnglUl
language.
