HISTORY OF OREGON.
Mrs. Eva Emery Dye Writes Chapter
Descriptive of Oregon City.
A Cleveland, Ohio, firm Is preparing
for publication a history of Oregon.
This firm has Issued similar histories
for a score of the Eastern States and
have now In press several from the
Western States. Mra. Dye waa asked
to prepare a chapter on Oregon City,
which she has done.
The proofe have been submitted to
her for correction and ahe Is very en
thusiastic as to what the book la to
contain. In preparing the data for the
article In question Mrs. Dye" became
more than usually Interested In the
work at hand and she says there was
much more of Interest to write con
cerning our picturesque little city than
one would think at casual glance. The
book will soon be on sale In Portland
and this city.
WHAT REDUCED FARE
WILL DO EOR US HERE
EXPRESSIONS AS TO HOW THE O.
W. P. MAY AID THE CITY AND
The reduced fare controversy on
the O. W. P. between this elty and
Portland has brought out many ex
pressions as to how the railway peo
ple may win popularity among the
citizens of this city. But chief among
the expressions was this: "The com
pany can do nothing that will win for
It more popularity than to double
track Its line to Portlanu and put on
an express train run between the two
"If the company would do that,"
tald the citizen quoted, "It would be
possible for the express run to make
the distance In 30 minutes. Only two
stops, at Milwaukie and Gladstone,
would be made necessary, and such a
run would please present residents
and bring many people1 from Portland.
"With Buch a service the rich Port
land merchants would many of them
like to comeiLere to live. That would
mean many nice homes, giving the
tax duplicate a big boost and make it
nnaalble to continue street Imnrove-
ment, Un we had one of the prettiest
ctle8 th8 Northwest country. And
that would mean a bigger and better
city, which all are striving for."
We know of no other spot in the
State where It is more picturesque
than here In Oregon City at least no
snot .more picturesque where It Is pos
sible to build a city. And with a ser
vice such as asked for above It la cor
ce sucn as asKea tor aoove i. cer -
in many people from Portland would
be pleased to come here to live,
One of the things that has pulled
this city down tn the past has been
: ,he movng am ty of people who had
i gg ROod ag thpy Bnoui,i be. And it is
certain the railway people will grant
the service when shown that it la to
be profitable, which it will be once
people begin to come here to build
Oregon City has the making of a
very prettv piace and the railway
can j0 m0re to hasten its com-
lnfE which will prove profitable to
lttnan any other agency tn the city.
..n,on of effort 0j an interests is
what Oregon City needs at thla time,
and one or two organization that are
working for the clty'a good are ac
complishing much towards that end.
