which iirobably haa been ot the widest ;
benefit to Oregon, eiecially Portland j
and the Willamette Va ev. waa the !
building of the lock on the Willamette
in 1872. Prior to that time goods bad
been first tranaferred from one side of
the fall to the other by teams, and later
by mean of a tramway or incline plane,
connecting the lower part of the falls
with-a basin built on the east side ol tbe
river. Both of tt.eaa means were ex
pensive, beside occasioning a great loea
of time. Mr Goldsmith and bis as
sociates, aided by a subsidy of f JOO.OOO
from the State legislature, undertook
the construction of the locks: but the
contractor failed, and they were com
pelled to complete tbe work by t be ni
sei ve. Its final cost wa more than
double the amount appropriated by tbe
"But his troubles did not end there;
the People's Transportation Company
refused to nee the locks. Tbit forced
bim to build boats, and he organized
the Willamette Locks A Transportation
Company, which reduceJ the transpor
tation 50 per cent below previous ratea.
Tbia brought about the consolidation of
the People'a Transportation Company
and the Oregon Navigation Company.
In order to compete with this organisa
tion It was neceeaary to build newer and
better boata and also to establish a line
ol steamers between ' Portland and
Astoria. Ultimately he waa forceJ to
sell out to bit rivals at a great loss. He
waa tbe only loser, however, for in the
