Ej&"Tit way to build op Oregon
City is to rlT Oregon City people your
of the Coast is attracting the attention ot
prospective investors from a distance.
Every visitor compliments the town upon
its evident prosperity and the flattering pos
sibilities it has for future growth. All this
indicates that now is the time lor the board
of trade to still further push its work of ad
vertising the advantages of Oregon City and
ot bringing the town up to the position it
should occupy as an industrial center. To
keep the interest from flagging, each mem
ber should be punctual in attending all
meetings ot the board and prompt in paying
their dues. By so doing a lire, working lu
te test in the board can be kept up. Let
there be a full attendance at the board of
trade meeting next Monday evening.
THE STATE'S DUTY.
Okkook's hop crop for l&O was 38,000
bales, and for ISM the crop amounted to
71,000 bales. The yield for this year is ex
pected to exceed 100,00 bales. By these
figures it will be seen that the hop business
has grown to be one of the great industries
of the state and the excellent quality of
hops produced will enable Oregon to re
main one of the great hop producing sec
tions of the world. The crop of this year
so far as cured is of extra flue quality and
wiih a large yield per acre will enable the
growers to realize a fair return even with
low prices that now prevail
Even during the hard financial strain of
the past two years the great majority of
those who have suffered have been those
who have never been taught to do anything
or at least never been taught with a thor
oughness that makes instruction convertible
into terms of dollars and cents, bread and
The generic problem of the race is to keep
aoul and body together, and the school
problem is first of all to pat the rising gen
eration in the way of making the junction
of the two possible. So long as the state
assumes the care of paupers it is the duty of j
the state to use its best means to prevent
the existence of panpers, and one of the
most direct means to that end is to see to it
that all the children in the state are thor
oughly instructed in reading, writing and
arithmetic, and are substantially trained in
the practice of some form of remunerative
handiwork, writes the Rev. Charles II. I'ark
hurst, D. D., in a vigorous article on "Com
pulsion in Child Training," in the Septem
ber Ladies' Home Journal. There is work
enough to be done in this big world by peo
ple who are willing to work and who know
bow. The idea of immense wealth secured
by some process of financial legerdemain
has so pervaded the general atmosphere that
a sufficiency has ceased to satisfy, and a
young man resolves either to speculate his
way to fortune, or to steal some one's else
fortune, or if both these expedients fail, to
turn professional idier and subsist on
charity. The incentive to substantial equip
ment for the struggle of life is thus with
drawn. If I were the state I would com
pel every child to acquire the means of an
honest livelihood, even at the risk of the
whip, and then if, having acquired that
means, he failed to avail of it to bis own
maintenance, I would commit him to the
workhouse and keep him at bard labor there
till he experienced a change of heart. There
is no respectable consistency between state's
care of the poor and state's neglect of strin
gent means for preventing the existence of
, the poor. If a government ought to be
"paternal" to the extent of feeding paupers
it ought to be "paternal" to the extent of
obliging possible or intending paupers to be
able to feed themselves. The root difficulty
in all this matter is the indisposition of
parents and other constituted authorities to
make serious business of laying substantial
foundations in the early years of our young
people, boys and girls. One of the chief
sources of misery among the working classes
is the wife's ignorance of the duties that be
long to her. She is ignorant of them because
she has never been compelled to learn them.
If we could split half our pianos into kind
ling wood and pluck the strings out of three
quarters of our harps and banjos, and set
our young girls to the practical task of be
coming proficient in a self-sustaining way
upon some line or other of remunerative in
dustry, it would be a great benison to society
in general. In whatever direction we look
and whatever improvement we seek to effect,
we come back to it again and again that the
eml is determined by the beginning, and
that the foundations of all public betterment
bave to be laid in the children.

This Is "American Year" in the Chautan
qua course of study, for in addition to the
other studies American history, civil gov
ernment, literature, etc., will be taken up.
This course will be of more than usual inter
est, for there has come to be a desire among
Americans to learn more of their country
and to busy people this Cnautauqua course
offers an excellent opportunity to acquiie
a knowledge of America sufficient to
enable them to read and converse intelli
gently regarding the great country of their
birth, of whose history, physical geography,
literature, art and educational growth so few
fully comprehend. The course is not ex
oensire and is easily within the reach of the
poorest boy and girl and such is the interest
there should be little difficulty in securing
the formation of a circle in each school dis
trict of this county. By taking opthe course
now one will be better able to participate in
and to understand the work of the clashes
at the Chautauqua assembly next summer.
There is a question as to whether the
school board of Oregon City can purchase
with public funds all the supplies that the
board his heretofore furnished the schools
and for which they now have asked bids for
from Oregon City and Portland stationers
Row Salmon Ar Batched.
To the Editor: We wish to thank you
for sending the Extirfrisi to us, and in
return will give you a short article for pub
lication to let the people know what is
being done here in the way of batching
salmon by the Columbia River Packers
Salmon Propagating company. We came
here about the first of June, into the heart
of the forest and we might say, hewed our
way here, and since then bave cleared away
the forests and erected two buildings, each
20x80 feet, and each containing nine troughs
sixty-four feet long, so that the two have a
capacity of 8,000,000 salmon eggs. Besides
clearing the ground and erecting these
buildings, we put a rack across the Oak
Grove, a stream four miles below where we
are located, to prevent the salmon from
going up that and have also built a rack
across the Clackamas here at the hatchery.
The first salmon were seen here on June
20th and we took the first eggs on July 22d.
These are the first salmon that come into
the Columbia river in the spring ahd are in
the Clackamas as early as the first ol Febru
ary. They are the finest of the Chinook
salmon, nearly all large, weighing from
twenty to forty pounds and that after tbey
bave made the journey from Cape Hancock
to the Cascade mountains without any visi
ble food. Many may think it strange that
these fish are so long in getting up here but
they travel verv slow after they have passed
the fishing grounds on the lower river ami
some of them were seen a few miles below
as for two or three weeks before they made
their appearance here. We have taken the
eggs from about 400 salmon and they have
averaged about C000 eggs each, so we have
nearly 2,500,000 eggs in the hatching house.
Our largest days work was 254,000 eugs from
forty-four salmon; but it looks now as
though the run was about over for this year
as we will riot wait for the late run for it
would bring us into the cold weather before
they would hatch and get large enough to
turn loose and as the the weather and water
gets colder, it will take them longer to
hatch, so if we should Btop taking the
eggs now, it will be as late as the middle of
November or later before we will have all
the young fry turned out and by that time
we will have snow and cold weather up
here in the mountains. We are however
taking about 50,000 eggs a day and shall con
tinue to do so, If the iish last, until the first
of September, when we shall stop.
As most of us are citizens of Clackamas
county and residents of Clackamas, it may
be well to say that we have all been blessed
with good health and mountain appetites
and cot one of us will go out of here weigh
ing less than when we came in, and what
is more, not an accident has happened In
our camp. There has been much said in
the Oregonlan abont us having trouble
with the Indians here, and at one time they
had us about murdered, but we still live
and have fifteen families of the redskins
camped within a few hundred yards of us.
They take the fish after we have spawned
them, pack to their camp and dry them for
their winter food and not any part of the
fish is wasted, as they use the head, tail,
fin and all there is inside of them, they
even come to the hatchery and take the
dead eggs, and dry them, and at no time
have we been in any danger of being mur
dered except now, as they came to our
camp the other day and borrowed all our
guns to go hunting with, so we are nearly
defenseless but not badly scared, as we ex-
iugton about two years where he had liiken
up a ranch. It Is supposed he committed
suicide as his gun was found beide him.
