Untied br Records.
LINCOLN, Neb., June 3.-To the Editor
of The Bee: Prof. Munsterberg and other
psychologists have been at great pains of
late to prove and Illustrate the unrelia
bility of human observation and testi
mony. The Incidents of frontier history
are, for obvious reasons, peculiarly liable
to this Inaccuracy; and because but little
critical examination has been given to the
early history of Nebraska, many of the
most Important events attributed to It are
either wholly apocryphal or materially ap
As a matter of course, then, some mis
statements of this sort crept Into the very
enterprising story of early Nebraska his
tory, which was printed in The Bee. The
approaching centennial anniversary will af
ford a much needed opportunity to give i
corrected version, so far as may be, of
these early events; and the preliminary dls
cusslons of the subject of the celebration
also offer such an opportunity, because
they are read with unusual attention. The
State Historical society has lately been
giving particular attention to the collection
of facts relating to the early history of the
Nebraska country and to their careful au
thentication; and it is in pursuance of this
object that I, representing the society, am
submitting this communication.
"Why the Whites Came.
It Is generally known that the first white
people who came to Nebraska were here
for the purpose of exploring, trapping and
trading with Indians. These operations
were first conducted, so far as we know,
along the lower Missouri river, but grad
ually extended to Its upper aters and to
Its confluents. Probably we shall some
time gain much more accurate Information
about this early occupancy than we now
have. We know, however, that the Lewis
and Clark expedition found all along the
Missouri river various places with French
names which seemed to have been firmly
fixed. In the eighteenth century the
French were very bold and enterprising
explorers 'and colonists In the upper lake
and Mississippi region, and it appears that
they were familiar with the Missouri valley
also, though they apparently had no fixed
posts or settlements there. They had regu
lar trading posts along the lower part of
From the time of the Lewis and Clark ex
pedition our knowledge of this occupancy
of the shores of the Missouri becomes more
definite and accurate. That great expedi
tion naturally gave a fresh Impetus to the
enterprise of the traders and trappers
whose base of operations was at St. Louis,
at this time a French town with a popu
lation of from 1,000 to 2,000. Soon after the
expedition iarge companies were formed to
carry on the fur trade whereas, before this
time, It had been conducted In the main by
Individuals or smaller partnerships. The
two greatest of these companies were John
Jacob Astor's American Fur company and
the Missouri Fur company which for
twelve years was dominated by Manuel
Lisa, a very remarkable cltlcen of St.
Louis. These companies were organised In
the same year, 1&08. As tor had already be
come a great probably the greatest fig
ure in the fur trade in the United States.
In 1810 he formed the Pacific Fur company,
and Intended to operate In the northwest
and particularly to gain control of the
Columbia river country.
Winter of 1810.
In the fall of 1810, the Paclflo Fur com
pany sent out its expedition, composed of
the most notable trappers and traders of
the Mississippi valley. It was stopped by
Ice on Its way up the Mississippi river at
a point a little above the site of the
present city of St. Joseph and spent the
winter In a camp on the Nodaway rivers,
near Its mouth. It made its real start
from this camp April 21, 1811. On April 28,
the party camped on the Iowa side nearly
opposite the site, which afterward came to
be known as Bellevue.
, While Astor s American Fur company
was giving particular attention to tho
Oregon country, Lisa's Missouri Fur com
pany established itself on the Missouri
river above and below the Platte; to that.
while we do not know accurately when the
Missouri Fur company first established it
self along the present Nebraska shore line,
It began its operations there before the
American Fur company. The neighbor
hood of the Council Bluff of Lewis and
Clark was in those earlier years the
favorite place for the posts of the traders,
and in or near the year 1812, Manuel Lisa
established the first post of a permanent
character five miles and a half below the
Bluff and some twelve miles above the
present city of Omaha. We do not know
when the fur traders first established
themselves on the site of Bellevue, but It
is Improbable that there was a post' there
or very near when the Astor expedition
went up In 1811. All we can say is that In
the early part of this century the 19th
traders and trappers established them.
selves quite promiscuously and without
permanency at many points along the
shore line of Nebraska above the mouth of
Settlement at Bellevue.
While It may be fairly said that the first
white settlement In Nebraska was made at
Bellevue, yet It Is Inaccurate to say that
this settlement was established at any par
ticuiar time. Bellevue was a growth, not
a creation. Moreover, It is not known when
It first came to be called by that name.
Substantial and permanent trading posts
were established there by the principal
companies between 1820 and 1830, and the
seat of the Indian agency for the local er
domeatio tribes was moved from Council
Bluffs to Fort Atkinson to Bellevue some
time during that period. These two events
were the main contributors to the founding
of Bellevue and marked Its permanency as
a white settlement The statement has
been many times repeated that the Amerl
can Fur company established a station at
Bellevue In 1810, but no authority has yet
been given for it.
The treaties concluded with the Omaha
and Oto and Missouri Indians In March,
1E64, whereby those tribes ceded their lands
to the United States, were the beginning
o fthe end of Bellevue; for as a result of
the treaties, the Omaha were removed to
the reservation they now occupy, and the
Oto and Missouri to a reservation on the
Big Blue river. As a result of the removal
Bellevue naturally lost the agency of these
tribes and of the Pawnee (In 1SS8 and
ISM) and the choice of Omaha as the capital
of thl territory In the early part of 1S5S,
completed Its undoing. "Bellevuen" was
organised as a municipality by authority
of the first legislature March 15, 154
though the first postofflce In the territory
was established there January IS, 1K55,
under the orthodox sepelling, Bellevue. The
first postofflce at Omaha was established
May I of the same year. It Is frequently
stated that a postofflce was established In
Bellevue In 1849, but this Is Incorrect. An
office called Nebraska was established In
that year at the place commonly known
as Trader's Point, lUuxlcd Juat HSIOM. tbt
river In Iowa, nearly opposite Bellevue. It
was placed on the east side of the river
and at a less Important point than Belevtie
presumably because the territory on the
Nebraska side had not yet been ceded by
the Indians to the United States.
Called Council lllnffs.
This Nehraska-ln-Iowa was really a
proxy of Bellevue or Council Bluffs, and
the greater part of Its business originated
at the busy Nebraska post Both the bor
rowed name and the close proximity of the
Iowa adjunct suggest he Importance of its
Bellevue was always called Council Bluffs
or Council Bluffs Agency In the reports of
the Indian and other federal officers until
the agency of the Omaha, the Otoe and
Missouri, and the Pawnee Indians was re
movedIn 106-67. The name of "Nebraska"
postofflce was changed to Council Bluffs
In 1850; this name was in turn changed to
Trader's Point In 1852. The office was fin
ally discontinued December 15, 1S54, because
the territorial organisation of Nebraska
had made way for a postofflce at Bellevue,
and Kanevllle, which took the name Coun
cil Bluffs when Trader's Point lost It In
1852, had superseded the ferry landing In
Bellevue was never the capital of Ne
braska and no preliminary legal steps were
taken to make It so. Acting Governor Cum
ing took the first step toward establishing
the capital of this commonwealth by calling
the first legislature to convene at Omaha,
and that body took the final step by declar
ing Omaha to be the permanent capital.
The year 1810 was a very Important and
significant one to the Nebraska country.
Astorlans, whose great expedition was or
ganised in that year, discovered and trav
ersed the great part of the Oregon trail
on their return fro mthe Columbia river
In IS12-13. This very remarkable explora
tion stimulated, if it did not cause, the
movement which colonized the Oregon
country with Americans, In antagonism to
the British Invasion, and finally secured It
to the United States.- The story of the ev
olution of the great highway, which trav
ersed Nebraska and discovered Its Interior
to the world, is very fascinating. The
trail was practically opened and used by
the fur traders nearly twenty years before
the great tide of Oregon emmlgratlon,
which gave It its name, set In, In 1842.
The 23d of June, the date of the organi
zation of the aPclflc Fur company, Is there
fore very properly chosen for the centen
nial celebration of the beginning of Ne
braska. No doubt a great deal of very In
teresting and Instructive Information about
that momentous epoch will be heard at the
celebration. ALBERT WATKINS.
Watklns an Authority.
Mr. Watklns Is a recognized authority on
the history of Nebraska, having succeeded
the late J. Sterling Morton as edltor-ln-chlef
of the most exhaustive and authorita
tive work we have on the subject, "Mor
ton's History of Nebraska." It Is there
fore of Interest to compare Mr. Watklns,
as editor of the history mentioned, with
Mr. Watklns, as challenger of the accuracy
of the statements made in the article
printed In The Bee In regard to Bellevue
and the early settlement of Nebraska. The
chief points In The Bee's story which are
questioned by Mr. Watklns are briefly
summed up as follows:
That the Astor station was not estab
llshed at Bellevue In 1810 that the date of
such is a atter of doubt. (See Page 67,
Morton's History of Nebraska, wherein
it Is stated that the Pacific Fur company
(Astor's) was organized in 1810.)
That Manuel de Lisa's appearance at
Bellevnue Is a matter of uncertain date,
and that there is no -definite knowledge
as to theo rigin of the name of Bellevue.
(See page 64, Morton's History of Nebraska,
wherein It is stated that tradition Is to
the effect that Manuel de Lisa reached
Bellevue in 1905 and that he gave the
palce Its present name.)
That Bellevue was never the capital of
Nebraska. (See page 163, Morton's HlBtory
of Nebraska, .which says, quoting a letter
from Armlstead Burt, son of Governor
Burt: "The governor's Intention was to
convene the first legislature at Bellevue.
As to locating the capital I heard him say
that he wanted to choose a place that
would be the permanent seat of govern
ment." Also see page 17$, Morton's History
of Nebraska, where the following para
graph occurs: "When the first governor
arrived In this territory, he found only
one place entitled to the name of village,
even, anywhere north of the Platte river.
The town of Bellevue, the first townslte
north of the Platte, was the place where
It was known he intended to locate the
capital.") This is substantially an extract
from an extended discussion of the capital
question, and while it Is true that the
first session of the legislature was held in
Omaha, as stated not only In Nebraska
histories, but also by The Bee in Its Belle
vue article. Governor Burt, according to
all historical authorities, considered Belle
vue the seat of government during his very
Although other reference works were
used to some extent, the main dependence
of The Bee In its Bellevue story was Mor
ton's History of Nebraska. While, accord'
Ing to history, the Astor fur station may
not have been in actual operation at Belle-
vue in 1810, all histories agree that it was
organized In that year hence the fitness
of holding the Bellevue centennial in 1910.
