CVMULdTI VE l.YFL UESCE
The influence of the country press is not
confined to its own county or readers, for
if it be located in a community posM-s-ing
natural advantages which are being
developed as are those ol Oregon City,
its influence is as widespread as its exchange
list and their numerous readers. This is
especially true if the rural pajier is a wide
awake newsy journal from which its ex
changes, and escially the city paers, can
clip interesting news items. The good ac-!
complished by the Enterprise is not con-1
lined to Clackamas county; but to give our j
readers some idea of the way its efforts to j
buiid up this community are made more i
than doubly valuable we will illustrate:
Under the title of "The Genius ol the
Falls," the Astoria Budget recently made an
item taken from the Enterprise the text
for the following article which w ent to all
of its numerous readers. It said:
" For ages the Falls of the Willamette at
Oregon City have been swinging their va
pory censer in mystic worship of an un
known God. The utilitarian purposes of
their existence were little understood. The
rude frontiersman and the painted Indian
recognized the basaltic wall over which the
water thunders as a special providence in
aid of a salmon fishery. More enlightened
men saw a vast volume ol water iower that
would some day turn the wheels of hum- j
ining factories in the shadows of the frown
ing bluffs. But electricity in its more mod
ern uses was then an unknown ijtiantity
and no one dreamed that a day would come
when, by the aid ot the switt and potent
fire, the falls at Oregon City would be light
ing cities, driving cars and impelling a
thousand forms of machinery miles and
miles away !
" But it is an ordinary and accepted fact.
Only the other day P. F. Morey, president
of the Portland General Electric company,
accompanied by W. C. Cheney, electrician
ol the company, and Geo. C. Urownell, its
attorney, left for the East to close contracts
for the electrical and mechanical plant re
quired fur the immense power station to be
built on the west side of the river at Oregon
City, for supplying electricity for lighting
and power purposes in Portland. The com
pany will exeud on this station about $1,
51X1,000, and it will be the most extensive af
fair of the kind in the United States.
" it is chronicled as the simplest of events
and yet it has a significance beyond words
to express. It means the opening of a new
world, as strange and inscrutable in its way
as the supreme mysteries of life and death.
The words ' natural' and 'supernal' have
ceased to have a distinct significance in this
flying, Haining age, and wonderment is al
most lost in helpless stupor as we behold the
prodigies of the ojiening ages.''
This is but one case. Here is another il
lustration taken from the Newburg Graphic
of the same week:
" Electricity will soon be carrying passen
gers between Portland and Oregon City, An
electric line ia being built to be completed
by Christmas. There is no reason why the 1
l!lMifilii Willamette iiy not 1h utilised
to p'ner.-ite power lor vhvtrio lines all
tliromrh the lower valley, ami Mimll

The soil and climate of t'lackamai county
are admirably adapted to iliversitied fruit
interests. Its location is such as to give it
every advantage of a good and convenient
m trket. This being the condition of affairs
why is it Uialapplesare today being shipped
into the county and sold at over two dollars
per Nil? There can he but one answer to
this iiuestion. The fruit interest have been
i neglected : the orchanls have been ttefflecUHi.

The Sew York Press takes an encouraging
view of the political situation and concludes
I an exhaustive article on the party's future
w ith this conclusion :
" Why should a single conscientious re-
publican go seeking after new political atlil
! iatiens? The swing of the pendulum is ab
I solutely certain to reinstate the party in

as was the democracy in lWB and succeed

and to the party whose policy has stood the
test of political exierience."
