T"J IT ,c- ' Tg :T .- ;v &-.- 0) . jDEInil Vol. XVIII. Astoria, Oregon, Tuesday Morning, November 14, 1882 No. 38i !A0t0tiim fu V A SLIDING MOUNTAIN IN OREGON. The jyovermnent engineers on gaged upon the ship canal mound the rapids where the Columbia river cuts through the Cascade mountain', and the engineers of the ( Jregon Railway and Naviga tion company, whose railroad luns beside the government canal, have discovered that a point of the mountains of tremendous height and three miles in extent, is mov ing -down an incline into tho-jivcr. The fact of a moving mountain is strange, but not incomprehensible. J t seems, says an intelligent cor respondent of the New York Times, that the gicat river and the r.ivines that point to it have cut their way through a superincum bent mass of basalt into a sub stratum of sandstone. This sand stone, we will suppose, presents a smooth surface, with an incline toward the river; the river outs tinder the basalt into the sand stone and the natural effect is for the superincumbent basalt, acting like a similar foimation of ice in a glacier, to slide down hill. The same gentleman says, on the authority of Mr. Thielsen,engi neer in-chief of the western di vision of the Northern Pacific railroad, that when an examination was made a year ago of n disused portage tramway past that point, the track was fonnd to be twisted as much as seven or eight feet out of the "true line in some places, caused beyond doubt by a move ment of the mountain. It seemed certain to Mr. Thielsen that there was a movement of a tremendous mountain spur opposite this piece of road. The correspondent goes on to say: "It is a fact well known to all river men that above the Cascades where the river is tranquil the waters cover a submerged forest, -z whose trunks still stand with their projecting limbs to attest some wonderful phenomenon. It has been a query in the minds of all as to what convulsion of nature or process of time caused this over flow of waters. Over thirty years ago I saw the dead trunks stand ing beneath the waves, and the interest in this connection was in creased byj learning from the In dians that among their traditions was one that ages since the moun tains rose precipitously at the -river's side, and a great arch of stone spanned the river from shore to shore, and that their canoes passed under it. Tradition further says that in course of time a great earthquake threw down the arch and blocked the river, causing the cascades as we see them now. It is not often that Indian tradition is so specific in detail. As the rec ords of the aborigines of this re gion are very transient, it is pos sible that this story rests on some fact of natural history of not very remote occurence. Joining tradi tion and speculations with the dis coveries and deductions of science, we must conclude that some con vulsion of nature has thrown great masses of rock into the stream sufficient to deaden its flow for eight miles above and to sub merge the forests just above tho rapids. Mr. Brazee, who has been engineer of the navigation company that owned the portage road around the falls, informs me that he has watched the movements of the mountain for twenty years, and that it is no myth." Scientific American. American Ship-Owing on the Sly The American Ship, a journal devoted to the shipping interests, says that the terms "foreign fleet," applied to steamers plying between American and European ports, is to a certain extent a misnomer, American capital being embarked in British tonnage more largely than is generally known, adding: "Americans, especially New York ers, often have a vote in the man agement and share in the divi dends, for they have a way of dodging the disabilities to which our national bunting subjects thin at home and in foreign parts."'" There is much that is hu wttMtfinf in these pieces of infor mation, which, 13 the way, are no news to bhippcis and underwriters generally. It being appaient that American investors have confi dence that shipping enterprises may be piofitable, it reflects any thing but credit upon a tariff sys tem which prevents the use cif all this money at home. It has gone to enrich .shipbuilders on the Clyde, or to be used to pay British shipmaster and j-eamen. So much of the money as has been employed as working capital wage, fuel, renewals of rigging and fittings, aiid so forth might at least have gone into the pockets of our own sailors and mechanics, but for the" law which prevents a foreign-built ship from obtaining an American registry. And is it not demoral izing to continue in force a sys tem which piovokes contempt for the flag among thoc who should be the first to maintain it in honor. Our fathers, in fact, succeeded years ago in making the stars and stripes respected all over the world as an emblem of commercial enter prise and probity. We have changed all that, and thanks to our perfect system of protection, Brit annia's supremacy of the waves is a more stubborn fact than ever. Boston Transcript. General Prosperity. Hops are a dollar a pound in this market, and arc quoted at Sl.Gu in the New York market, with an upward tendency in price. A. Chinese laborer walked into a commission store the other day and drew about seven thousand dollars in a lump. The proceeds on his fyop crop on a few acres this 3ear. An American farmer in one of the interior valleys sold his hop crop the other day for $10,000; he had that number of pounds. The hop men have "struck it rich" this year, according to a current phrase. Some of the rich warm valleys will produce hops to per fection. But there is a great deal of hard labor to the business. In Washington territory and some parts of Oregon, Indians are em ployed. They earn a great deal of money at the business of pick ing hops, and game most of it away. They are cheap laborers, however, and quite as satisfactory as Chinese, who prefer to grow hops for themselves rather than pick them for others. 1 1 is not all likely that the present prices will be maintained. If half the present prices be realized, one year with another, on the hop crop, it would be one of the most lucrative pro ducts in this state. The tide sets in favor of hops. The lumbermen have been coining money on this coast. This is true of the lumber interests from Monterey Bay to Puget Sound. It has been true with some qualifications for about three years. The present year has been a rematkably prosperous one for the lumbermen. The prevailing rates have been from three to four dollars per thousand feet above the price which prevailed during the late depression. Besides the advance in price there has been the great advantage of quick sales. No waiting for purchasers. Car goes have been sold to arrive, and others as soon as they came into port. No hunting for purchasers. There is a great deal of money in the country, and a great deal of building is going on in the interior. The export demand has also been greatly quickened. It looks as though the demand would not fall off for some time to come. The next season promises to be a good one for lumber interests. The tide is in for the lumber men. Just now the whalers are com ing into port from the Arctic. The tenor of the news, so far as it has been received, is favorable. Tho steam whaler which was built here and sent into the Arctic early in the season, will probably return full that is, with a cargo of oil and bone, worth nearly as much as the cost of the vessel. One whaler, a sailing vessel, owned at this port, "a little old square rigger," returned the other day full of oil and bone, the cargo; being worth ten times as much as, the vessel. It i true that there aie great hazards in the business,! and one steam whaler has been crushed in the ice. But the fleet ' will come down fiom the Arctic with a pretty good report at least that is the prospect now. In looking over the whole field i of industries, it is hard to find any' " prominent interests which has ' been in a languishing condition. Here and there crops fail on ac count ol the drouth. A ship now and then has been crushed by ice or lost in a gale. But the tide! this year has set in favor of nearly all legitimate pursuits on the! Pacific coast. . J'T. Jhdktin. Marriage in Genoa. Marriage brokers are quite important business men in Genoa. They have pocket-books filled with the names of the marriageable girls of the different classes, with notes of their figuies, personal attraction, fortunes, etc. These brokers go about endeavoring to arrange connectiens: and when thej succeed, they get a commis sion of 2 or 3 per cent upon the portion. Marriage at Genoa is quite a matter of calculation, generally settled by the parents or I relatives, who often draw up the ( contracts before the parties have seen one another, and it is only when everything is arranged, and a few days previously to the marriage ceremony, that the future husband is introduced to his in tended partner for life. Should he find fault with her manners or appearance, he may break off the match on condition of defraying the brokerage and any other ex penses incurred. There are about thirty news papers published in Washington territory at present, nearly all of which are. received regularly at this office. A careful examination of these says the Olympia Courier develops the fact that there is scarcely a poorly pi in ted journal in the whole number, while a large majority of them are models of typographical neatness. We do not believe the same number of papers in any one section of the United States, outside of the large cities, can be found that will com pare with them at all favorably in the neatness of the composition and "make up," or the clearness of the prcsswork. Most of them are owned anh edited by practical printers, who have engaged in publishing as a permanent busi ness, and combining no small amount of ability with thorough practical knowledge they are making their influence felt in building up local interests and securing respect from the press at large. Lately adverted to by the Indian apolis (Ind.) Neics, is the fact that Mr. Frank Patten, one of the edit ors of the Indiana Iarmerpi In dianapolis), strongly indorses St. Jacobs Oil. It cured his wife of a very severe attack of rheumatism and so quickly. Heartily Recommended. Don't condemn a good tiling because you have been deceived by worthless nostrunia. Parker's Ginger Tonic has cured many in this section of nerv ous disorders, and we recommend it honatily to such sufferers. JVeirs. A CARD.
