The ohjw.t i to issue bonds to the a
tnoimt of 73.(WO or f 100,000 and in
Test thtl money In roads and bruises
'This is a niatter thai Columbia county
rhoiild consider seriously at an early
iiute. Without good roads auJ bridges
we cannot expect to increase llw pop
iil.uion at a very rapid rate. Kven
ifiose people who have already come
to our comity and stdtknl a few miles
buck from the riter have no means of
teaching nia'rketonly on foot, conse
quently thcro is very little encounge
inent for others to go still further into
the interior of the county to lake up
land until Our road system is better.
The bond tftieetlon is being thoroughly
iiecused in Washington, and is, in
our opinion, the most profitable road
to prosperity. Ou this subject the
Willapa Republican hits the nail
squarely on the head, in the following :
'If Taci'ic county shows the same sp rit as
Wahkiakani and Lewis, she ill nut let the
present autumn pass without rating bonds
for road purposes, The present valuation
of the county is about four million dollars,
which, if there is no increase, would be a
Mufficient warranty for bonds to thoan.ount
of f 123 .000. The law passed by the last
legislature empowers the commissioners to
rail a special election during the year 1801
TO this purpose. We take the position
fhat Tacitic county, cannot afford te delay
this matter unt.l the general election of
1H. for one rca-on if fio other, to wit:
theexpeuuiture of this amount of money
in the next year in this county, will increase
the Tultie of real estate not less than one
million tt least; again, at the next election
there will be great political excitement, in
which so important a matter as tlds should
not be mixed. With the presidential cam
paign on hand and fill the state and county
officials, and a ronstitutioual amendment
or two, the voter will have enough to con
aider without county bond projects.
This matter is one of careful consideration
and the por rancher whopactcs food.stoves.
clothing, etc., for from one to ten miles
over an almost impassable trail, should
talk this matter over calmly and without
excitement, and see if it is not better to vote
ttnon himself a small tax. that will diminish
each year with an increased valuation, than
it is to make a pack mule of himself.
, , The above is a fair sample of bow
tbe people of western Washington
feel Ofi tbe county bond question. Pa
cific, Lewis, Cowlitz and Wahkiakum
counties, whose area is timbered and
more or less hilly, all want better
highways, and afe almost cnited to a
man on the issuing of county bonds
tor the building of roads. This is a
preposition of no little importance
and sltould be thoroughly sifted by the
people of Coluinbia eotihty.
" THE COLUMBIA BIVER BAR.
trom Majof Handbury's animal
report of tbe improvement of the
month of the Columbia river, we repro
duce the following: "The effect of the
jetty already constructed U very
marked in the building up of Clat p
spit and in concentrating the waters
as they flow over tbe bar so as to pro
duce the desired scouring effect. There
is Row a straight out and in channel
having a width tf one-half mile, with
a depth nowhere le s than twenty-seven
feet) and for a Width of one and one
half miles a depth of twenty-five feet,
the plane of reference being the means
of lowest low waters. With the view
of developing tbe present location of
the best water over the bar and ascer
taining what had taken place since
tbe survey of October, 1889, it was,
partially surveyed during June 10, 11
13 of this year. A suffcient extent of
the bar was. covered for the object in
. view. All conditions were exception
ally favorable for this work, and the re
ts ults obtained are very satisfactory.
The soundings were reduced to tbe
plane of the mean of lowest low waters
and are shown upon the sheet herewith.
If the results obtained by the jetty, as
shown by the survey of 1889, were
then gratifying, those shown by this
Survey are much more so. The thirty
foot curve on the two elopes of the
bar are now only 3,000 feel apart
where they appoach nearest to each
bther. There is every reason to be
lieve that this distance will be reduced
to nothing before the end of the year,
arid that eventually the thirty-foot
channel will be fully one milo wide.
The results hero shown; are indeed
very gratifying? and would seem to in
dicate bayond a doubt that a thirty
foot channel over this bar will soon be
ari accomplished fact, and the first
part of the problem to be solved by
the project finished. The next part is
to maintain this channel. This in my
judgment can best be done by piling
rock liberally along the line of the
jetty and strengthening by every
meant the vertebra that we have given
to Clatsop spiti So long as these sands
have something permanent to hold on
to and build up against, a good chan
nel can be maintained over the bar."
One of the substantial manttfactui
Ing enterprise of Columbia county is
the shingle mill of A. L. Ashman lo
cated a short distance below Cedar
Landing. In face of the fact that the
hingle market has been stagnant for
ome time this mill has been running
knost of the time. Its cutting capacity
is PO.OOO per day and employs twenty'
hue men constantly in the mill. If all
tho mill of the county were running
they would furnish employment for
about 600 men in the mills alone to
Say uolhing of the getting nut 'if logs,
making shingle bolts, rafting, etc. It is
actually noccessary that something be
inaugurated in ('iilumbia county to
bring business to our rescue. We
should advertise our natural resources
throughout the length and breadth of
the Cnited .States; thow to the people
of the Kast that thoro in other places
on the l'aciiic coast besides Washing
ton; When tho right stop is taken the
result will be inslantlv apparent.
If you want to assist in the npbuih'
ing of your county subscribe fid" the
county paper, advertise in it and in
every way assist the publisher to issue
a first elites newspaper, so that the
world may know that there is such a
place as Columbia county, slid that
tliere is real live people in the county.
Tho prosperity of a community de
pends largely Upon the newspaper
scut out, and for the paper to make a
respectable showing it must have the
help of all.

The following is the report for te
weekending, Saturday, September 2(5,
Weather The fore art of tho week
was cloudy and rainy the latter part, cool
generally cloudless, wi;h fog in the morn
lugs. Light frost was quite general on the
morning of the 23. no damage is reported
from it, this was the first frost of the season.
Smoke has entirely diasapeared from the
Crops HSrvSsti 'g of cereals is over.
Tliere is a few smalt amounts of wheat and
oats to thresh. There was no appreciable
damage done by the rains. The buckwheat
crop of Clackamas county is very good,
small portions of it were damaged by rain.
Hops are about all haled. Kxperimems
show that sugar beets and sorghum do
yery well in Washington county. The rains
softened the earth sufficient to allow of
plowing in many counties. In portion of
Linn county the corn is not r'pening well.
In Douglas county the wheat was not over
an average In quantity per acre and quality,
oats are, however, above the average. In
Jackson county grapes are ripening and
wiue making will begin next week. In
Curry cotiitty a 200-acre fli-ld of barley, oats
and wheat averaged SO, 51 and S3 bushels
per acre, respectively. Reports indicate
hit every on is well satisfied with the re
salt of the harvest.
Weather The fore part of the week
was cloudy and occasional showers fell, the
latter part was generally cloudless and coo'i
With frosts on the 20 and 23, the first gener
al frosts of the season.
Crops Harvesting and threshing is
generally over, except in Jnion, Wallowa
and Baker connties. where threshisg is
being finished np. Crops have been secured
without any damage from ciimatic condi
tions, as is tbe role. Large yields are re
ported from every county, varying from
10 to CO bushels per acrej the average yield
varies from 15 bushels per acre in some lo
calittes to 30 ant 40 bushels per acre in
other?. In Union county, for example, one
field of 0U0 acres averaged a fraction over 4u
bushels per acre. The corn in Tmatilla
county is unusually good. The fruit along
the Snake river was never so good aud
plentiful. In Wasco, Tmatilla and Union
counties the orchards are filled with fruit,
and tbe smaller orchards of the other
counties have done remarkably well. Tbe
harvest has been one of plenty, and the
quality of cereals and fruit a sood average.

Mrs. Mary H. Cunningham, wife of Dr.

Mrs. Cunningham was the eldest

host of friends in. his hour of sorrow.
Speaking ot Mrs. Dr. Cunningham
the Brunswick News has the following :

but with warm heart and a free hand
for all that Was des-itVing. She was

Editor Mist: Dear Sir : Again in
your issue of September 23, I notice
that your correspondent, "Query,"
complains that I did not try to give
him the light on the sub-treasury plan
that he desired.
No, I did not try, but I referred him
to the source of as much light on that
subject as its authors saw lit to give to
any cf us. Cut from his last article, I
judge that he did not get the tract 1
red red him toi Perhaps he "did not
try" to get it.
I thought, on reading his firrt orti
cle, and his last confirms that opinion,
that his chief desire aud atfn was to
get a chance to set tho "fool farmers"
ri;lit on the money question.
Well, if The MtsToau find space for
that laudable work, I think that be
fore it accomplishment "uery" will
find that hiore than one farmer hns
given the question as much thought
as some of their would-be teachers
The sub treasury plah, as submitted
by the alliance committee, may not
be entirely what some of us would
term perfect, but I assume that to be
of service to the industrial class, it
don't need much of a plan to ha as
good as that now in use. When farm
ers and ranchmen iu this county, com
pelled to taise 500, are, by our sys
tem, also compelled to give an amply
secured note fur $000, payable in thirty
days, at 10 per cent.; another iu au
adjoining county gives 300 and in
terest at 10 per cent, for the use of
200 for ninety days, such fellows, at
least, conclude that it will not taken
very nicely adjusted sub treasury plan
to improve the present system.
The big newspapers of this conntry
and other paid agencies of the exist
ing system, may continue to peddle
spook stories in its defense, but there
is an increasing numlier who don I feed
on such yarns as much as they once
The statement made by "Query" in
his last that the greenback was "fiat
money," and on that account depre-1
ciated to 40 per cent, of its faceduriug
the war, shows that some modem in-1
ventor has been thinking again; for so
far from its being fiat money, was be
cause of the exceptions written on it,
that Thad. Stevensand other congress
men told us then when the bill author
izing the greenback wason its passage,
that having curtailed its lopul tender
qnality by such excepliou, that it Was
for that very reason bonnd to depre
ciate. So please note, it depreciated
not because it was "iiat money," but
because it was not. I. C. Q.
