Later on the Treaty with the tribes of Middle Oregon, 1855, was established. The consideration, their payment, was that the United States agreed to pay the bands and tribes of Indians claiming territory and residing in said country, the several sums of money following, to: Eight thousand dollars per annum for the first five years, commencing on the first day of September, 1856, or as soon thereafter as practicable and six thousand dollars per year for the term of five years.
