TELLS OF PRESIDENT STATE HISTORICAL SOCIETY HAS ARTICLE IN PORTLAND JOURNAL. The PortJand Jtninn&l has been run ning a eertos of articles on "Origin of Orogoa Coun Ues," by F. V. Hoi man, pi-eskleut vt the Oreg'oo Histoa-i-cai Society. The following ldecrlpt of this county appeared in Frl day's paper. WALLOWA COUNTY. Walfowa coroiity was created Feb ruary ll, iss7f by the state legis lature, itieaeral- laws of 1887, pt U2. U. comprise a pan of tiie eas ern portJan of the original Union county. U la the northeastern count v of Oregon. The name Is that of the beautiful Wallowa luke and its outlet the tVallowa river. The part, of Oregon which compris 3s Wallowa county in eanly days was Isolated, it was far from the asually travelled rWe of early -rave.lers, fur tra-e.8 and imiinlgraaus. k iies Booth and southwest of Lewla umi, Idaho, near which, to the east, southeast and south of the ClearwaM river is Lapwal, Uia reservation of the upper Nez Terce tribe. In October, 1S0:, and in May, 180C, .he Lewis anA Clark expeditibn was M the mouth of the Clearwater river, which Lewis and Clark called the .Cooikooskee. LewLston is situated lit the junctlUi of the Clearwater ith the Snake jiver. Wallowa coim y is a short distance SMth of Lewis uii. Lewis and Clark's expedition lid not go into what is now AVal ovva county. i In the .winter of 1811-12, AViljn j .rke Hunt and his party en route, jvcrland, to As o.-a, attempted to lescend the Sciake river. They start ad to tdeseend the Snake river In sanoes, but they were compelled f abandon, their canoes and proceed lown the bank of t3io river, some of he party being on the east side, the Khers on the west side of the Snuke .'iver. The who:e party nearly perish- d from hiuiger and other hardshlpb. iecambar 21, 1811, the party left the Snake river and proceed!l west-J ward -l!o the Columbia river, which -hey reached Jarcuary 21, 1812, at a poisnt not far south of the WaiJa Valla river. On the way from the Snake river to the Columbia, the ex iet route of the party is not descrfb id nor con it definitely be ascertaiu sd, but undoubtedly it was through vhat is now Walibwa county, probaJb y south of Wallowa lake. The only her or stream between the Snake iver and ttie Columbia which is wen Uoned by name, except Walla Walla river, It is said, "was called by the jatives Eu-o-tal-la, or Umatilla." dr ying's AstJoria, vol. 2, page 65), In 1833 and 1834, Captain Botine viUe and his patty were in what Is now Wallowa county. He does not mention, the name Wallowa. He Idoeu .nentlon the Imnaha river, wlilch he :alils the Immaliah, -end the Way-leeway, which is the Nez Perce name it the Grande IWmde river. The eastern and southern part, of Wallowa county were the habitat of ihe lower Nez Perce Indians, at the time of the beginning of the noted war with them, which began June, 1877, and ended in October of the ame year. Their chief was the fam ous Indian knWn atf Chief Joseph. To be certain of the meaning or origin of the name, I wroe A. C. Smith, now living at Enterprise, In Wallowa county. For many years he lived! with the Indians in that vicinity and speiUs one or more of the trUiai languages. He hai kindly written roe, sayinig that he hail learned frWi he Umatilla and the Nez Pence In 'llatis that 'the Wallowa river was named by the fact that, many gene rations ago, the Nez Perce Indians placad the first f ieh, trap ln that rive-; and the salmon failed, from some ovise unknown Ko them, to go into the trap and, after leaving the trap set in the river un'ii time to go into thpir winder ouor'er!, Ihey arrived et. viperstitiowii notion that some charnr hal intervened to prevent the fish from going in. And so, when they ent away, they left the trap stand ing ion .the rkver to be destroyed by HDL M A N WALLOWA COUNTY tiie floods, although In other rivers it had been the.r constant practice to haul the ui'ot valuable timber out of the river for the neat summer and to save them from destruction from the next spring's fToods. Thereafter the river was always called by them "tiiti trap," aa Indian word for which is W allowa. Wallowa county Is now bounded: On the north by the state of Wash ingtou on the east by the Snake river the boundary between the state of Oregon and IdatPo; on the south by lUiker county, and on the west by Union counity. Its county seat Is Siitorprlsa. Its legal ll2scrtitlon is as follows: "Commencing at the northeast cor ner ut the s' ate of Oregon on Snake liver and thence west on the Btate .jte to whjre It iivtersecta the Grande ttonde rivor; thence in a BOuthwesU fly diieotiVm up the center of aald (Continued on last page.)
