Some Things Wanted,
Tho farmer of Oregon gets $40 per ton for his
Wheat," and tho carriors get about S2o per ton
for the same. But the ships are not owned in
tho State henco Oregon's loss on WHEAT is
S2o per ton.
The furnishers of Stavo-bolts receive about
So per cord, and tho ship 310 per cord. Tho
ships not being owned in Oregon S10 per cord
on STAVE-BOLTS aro lost to tho State.
So, also, with FISH and LUMBER, otc, ex
ported from the Columbia river, tho transpor
tation of which is lost to the State.
Ship Owners "Wanted.
To save these large gums to tho State of Ore
gon. Ships aro valuable, and this Stato pro
duces tho best of lumber, ppars and iron, for
Ship Yards "Wanted.
On tho Columbia river, to retain at home the
expenses of ship building. To build vessels
near tho mills, where it can bo dono cheaply.
An Independent Steamboat Co.
Is Wanted on the Columbia river and tribu
taries, to carry the products of Oregon to the
sea boai d, whero deep vessels may load with
It is reported that tho Columbia and Wal
lamet (river) Steamboat Companies havo an
understanding, a mutual agreement, to limit
their routes and preserve a monopoly. The
farmers on the upper Wallamet cannot get
their grain carried to tho ship awaiting cargo
in tho Columbia river without paying two
or three companies, and having tho grain re
handled beforo reaching tho ships. Tho boat
loaded at Salem should proceed directly to
tho ocean vessel in Astoria harbor, below all
obstructions, but instead of this she stops 12
miles below tho Summer mouth, and 30 miles
from tho Winter mouth of tho Wallamet, and
passes the grain, (wharf charged,) over to an
other boat of diffcront owners to carry to the
Farmers; Citizens of Oregon; wo appeal to
you! Look to this matter of transportation!
See tho largo sums tho Stato is continuously
deprived of, by tho etrav.agant method of
.shipping which benefits only the wharves at
Portland, and enriches the steaiuboat compa
nies. It is this kind of business that cnablos
shippers to give California farmers this year
Thirty-one Cents per Bushel
More than tho Oregon farmer receives for his
wheat. Read, roflect, understand tho facts,
then act for yourselves.
