WM. BARLOW IS DEAD
ANOTHER FOUNDER OF CLACKAMAS
Croited the Plains to Oregon In 185.
Funeral Occurred at Oregon City
On Wednesday Morning.
Wlllam Barlow, another of Clackamas
county's pioneers, died Monday morning
at hla home at Barlow. Death resulted
from Injuries and complications attend
ing an accident In this city one day last
week, by which he suffered tha fracture
of his hip.
Mr. Barlow waa a pioneer of 154, and
a man who waa prominently connected
with the growth and development of
this section of Western Oregon. lie waa
born In Marlon county, Indiana October
2. 1122, his ancestor coming from Scot
land to American previous to tha Revolu
tion and settling In Virginia..
In 1H6. with hla parents, he started
for Oregon. Mr. Barlow, Sr., had been a
frontiersman and never lacked for cour
age. When the Immigrant train reached
The Dalles, which marked - tha end of
team and wagon travel at that time,
the greater number of the company re
fused to proceed further. But Mr. Bar
low mounted one of his wagons and said:
"I have ataru-d for Oregon, and I am
going on. Let all follow who want to."
He liH'l six wuaons In charge and was
Jolnt-il by nine others. Oregon City was
reached Chrlxtma Eve.
Aft-r n-aclilng On-gnn City, the subject
of this sketch engaged In land operations
and became the owner of aeveral farms,
and was the founder of the town of
Caiu-muh, being the partner of Sir.
Hegs at that time. In liG2 he married
Sirs. Mititlm Ann Allen, widow of Dr.
Allen, who came t Oregon In 150 and
died shortly after hla arrival here. Fol
lowing his marrl?e he removed to the
fine farm at Barlow where he remained
until when he again returned to
Oregon City and auccessfullly engaged in
the general merchandise business for nine
years, retiring to his farm at Barlow In
1870, where he has spent his declining
The deceased waa one of the repre
sentative citizens of the state, and did
his part towards founding the state
of Oregon. He was a man of large busl
nesa dealings, hiving In his life time
done more than 1100.000 In contract work
for the railroad company. In 1891, he
platted the town of Barlow.
Mr. Barlow was a staunch Republican.
Socially he was for many years an hon
ored member of the Masonic fraternity,
undvr whose, auspices the funeral was
conducted In this city Wednesday morn
ing at the First Baptist church.
The deceased la survived by a wife and
two children Mary 8- Barlow, of Barlow,
and Casslus V. Barlow, of Oakland. Cul.
'NOTIFY THE CORONER."
Body of Young Portland Suicide Recov
ered at Oregon City.
The body of a young man was dis
covered floating In the Willamette river
at the O. W. P. Ry. dock at Canemah
8unUy morning. The remains proved
to be those of Frank Fulton, of Portland,
whose Identity waa disclosed by a diary
In his pocket, in which was Inscribed
his name and other data pertaining to
himself, with Instructions that in case of
death or serious Illness to notify the cor
The notebook gave the residence of de
ceased as Room 2i. Raleigh building.
Portland. Oregon. From the diary It was
evident that the young man, who waa
aged about 30 years, waa employed as
solicitor. The body had evidently been
in the river about ten days.
Ten days ago a young man answering
the description of the recovered body
was seen near where the body waa found
at a late hour at night, seated on the
edge of the wharf. Coroner Holman
Jook charge of the remains, over which
an Inquest waa held, the Jury finding
that deceased came to hla death from
causes unknown, presumably from
drowning with suicidal Intent.
The remains of young Fulton were
given burial Monday afternoon at the
expenae of the county, none of tha rel
atives or friends of the young man mak
ing request for the body.
LAND OFFICE MAY BE MOVED.
May Be Installed In New Federal Build
ing at Portland.
A special from Washington, D. C, to
the Portland Oregonlan, waa published
8unday as follows:
"If there Is sufficient room In the new
Federal building at Portland, It Is prob
able that the local land office will be re
moved from Oregon City to Portland,
Such a move as this has been recom
mended by Special Agent Linnen, and la
approved by Surveyor General Daly and
"There are various reasons for desir
ing the change. Portland la now the
central point In the Oregon land district,
and a vast majority of tha persona having
business In the local land office have to
pass through Portland on their way to
Oregon City. More than that, the gov
ernment now paya 1360 a year rent for
the building occupied by the Oregon City
land office. Its owner, Henry Wetnhard,
of Portland, refuaea to reduce the price.
In Porland tha Item of rental would be
"It Is believed by land office officials
that sufficient room can be found In tha
Federal building at Portland, If the En
gineers' office will surrender some of the
space It now occupies bur apparently does
not require. It appears that an Import
ant reason for urging the removal of this
office to Portland la that It would be
removed from the eaay reach of attor
neys, timber locators and others, who
now have offices adjoining the land office,
and who make a business of keeping tab
on every person who transacts business
therein In order to solicit their work,
etc., which Is not considered In the best
Interests of the service. Moreover, It la
deemed desirable to have the land office
under the same roof as the surveyor
general's office. In the Interest of econ
omy nl time and convenience. The gen
eral land office will look Into the facta,
with a view to determining whether the
change shall be made."
Register A. 8. Dresser, of Oregon City
land office, was seen and In reply to In
quiry concerning proposed removal of
local land office from Oregon City to
Portland, said he had received nothing
of an official nature from Washington as
to the proposed change. People of Ore
gon City are surprised at proposed change
In location of land office and will strive
to retain office here.
