THE LINN CITY CLAIM.
Reminiscences of this Aspiring Village
Before the Flood of I86V62.
By an Oi.ii Timkii.
'l'lit) west bank of the Willamette
river opposite Olefin City, known as
the Linn Ci'y liiml claim, was taken up
boiiio lime 'in 18-10 by Hubert Moore,
father o( the lato James M. Moore, but
the title to the land was not continued
until the passage of the donation land
law introduced liy Hon . nnmuei u
Thurston, first delegate tocoiiKntss from
Oietfon. some years later. It was
named in honor of Senator Linn, of
MisBouri.who, in 1840- 41, advocated the
extension of the laws ol the United
Stales over all territory west of tli
Rocky Mountains and the wanting of
claims to all who would become settlors
Senator J. in" died shortly after aud the
muter was neglected until later.
Moore built a small lojrliouse where
the lockCjmpany's building now stands.
It did not present a very imposing ap
pearance, iiaving neither windows nor
fireplace. He was very well pleased
with it, however, and called it Uobhin's
Kent. Linn City was laid out in town
lots in 1841, by J . W. Shivoly, w.'iodied
in Astoria a short timn since. All under
the hill from tho mouth of tho locks to
the end of the upper lock was laid out
in lots besides two tiers of blocks on the
bin II. At the upper end of the place
was a lanyard, one of tho first, if nut
the first ever built in Oregon, which
was carried on by Niuevah Ford. A
house stood at the west end of the sus
pension bridge that was built in 1845 by
8. V. Moss, and was occupied by Peter
11 . Bun.e:t, who resided there until the
discovery of auriferous deposits in Cali
fornia, Having lenught the gold lever,
lie emigrated to that state and after
wards became its first govern r.
In 1833, a company consisting of Page,
Ferguson and others built extensively at
Linn City, barns, flouring and suw mills,
and a large warehouse for the transfer
of freight frum the lower to the upper
Willamette, and they did a profitable
business until 1858, when the improve
ments burned down entirely. They were
supposed to have been set on lire by
enemies of the company. The loss was
probably ioO.OOO. Some time previ
ously a steamboat that was being con
structed near there, but had not been
launched, was also destroyed by lire.
Ex-Senator J. K. Kolly and others re
built the warehouse and operated it until
the freshet of lSbl-'O:', which carried it
Linn City at that time was quite a
lively little plane ol 150 or more inhabi
tants. It had a hotel, a portiou of
which was built by Joe Meek, the well
known trapper and Indian tighter. He
sold out 1 1 A. II. Frier, who enlarged
the building and made other improve
ments and then sold out to John It.
Price, father in law to lion. John
H. Mitchell, the free-silver senatoi
from Oregon. Price continued the hotel

(i.j.v upwards of 80) made the shingles

U, A. Harding's residence is located.
Near what la the upper end of the
locks, in l842-'43 dead Indians were
piled here and there almost like eord

General Palmer owned property and
resided at Linn City for some time. He
moved to Dayton and was afterwards
appointed superintendent of Indian
affairs. He died there a few years ago
James At. Moore kept a store there as
did Mr. Baity and John Brisbin. A
large livery stable was kept there at the
time by Wesly Mulkey, and a carpenter
Bhop by James Athey of this city. Mr.
Ward, father of Park Ward, ex-county
treasurer, who was a house-builder, fell
from the top of a building anil was so
badly injured that lie died a short
time afterwards. Dr. Sutl'ains had a
neat cottage in Linn City and practiced
bin profession, and Judge Q. C. Pratt
had the finest residence in the village.
He moved to San Francisco and became
Suite prominent in public affairs. He
ied recently qnile wealthy.
A feiry was rqn between Oregon City

street- Tlie trade to both places came
partly from up the valley, but prim-ipally
from the Tualatin plains anil bo con
tinued until a road was made to Port
land in IMtt-'-W and the trade taken
thither- The entire place was swept
away in the whiter of 18ill-'0-'. except
two houses that stood hack anainst

Gordon, the man who killed Henry
Barringer on the inland iu some trouble
about the right to fish there. Since the
flood the place was neglected until the
building of the locks in 1870-71 and the
improvements of the past few years.

.Mais Stkeet Sidewalks. Teams
hauling dirt from the sidewalks on Main
street have been observed to drive off
with half loads in order to make the bill
ol expense to property owners larger.
If the council had given each property
owner the privilege, under penalty if
neglected, to build bis own sidewalk,
Ihe expense in many cases would have
been lighter. Some o I them could thus
have secured payment of old debts.
Water Soaked Chain. In Spring
water most of the grain has been
tlirenhed wet, because the frequent rains
ha-e not permitted il to dry sufficiently.
Fanners are obliged to spread but their
threshed grain on every available toor

dry it. The grain is not marketable,
and it is puzzling the Spring ater far
