THE MORNING OREGON! AN, TUESDAY, JVl 21,, 1903,
THE GROWTH OF ONTARIO:
Fine Town on Snake River in Eastern Oregon Valuable Resources,
Early in the '80s, In 18S4. the Oregon
Short line was built Into Eastern Oregon,
and within half a mile of where the road
crosses Snake River, a short dlstarico
above the points where the .Malheur and
Payette Rivers Join that large stream,- a
little station was established. It was named
Ontario, in honor o the great lake by
People who were paraengers on the first
trains run over the road may remember
the little sidetrack, the Ted station build
ing, and the two or three primitive houses
that stood near it. They looked very
lonely in that great waste of sagebrush,
and there was nothing about the place to
impress the traveler except its notable
lack of trees and other domestic vegeta
tion. It would be hard for one to have
guessed at that time that the town would
grow into one of the most Important ship
ping points in that part of the state, and
that It would, too, become attractive with
Shady trees and pretty homes.
And, yet, that 'is exactly the change
that has taken place in Ontario. And
though there are large areas of sagebrush
in every direction, they are becoming
smaller year by year and orchards and
farms, some of the most profitable to be
found In the Lower Snake River Basin,
are changing the former wilderness Into a
picture of modern civilization and prog
ress. Ontario has several resources, each of
which might cause a less-favored town
to feel that it had a bright future before
It. Among them are its commercial ad
vantages, it being a trading point for a
territory extending far back almost to the
center of Oregon; Its central location for
a large and rich agricultural district and
the advantages it will probably some day
realize from mining when paying methods
are discovered for the gathering of the
unlimited amount of gold that is now
lying untouched in the sands of Snake
Ontario is the only shipping point of
importance in Malheur County, which is
the second largest county in area In the
state. As everyone who Is familiar with
the geography and conditions that exist
In Central Oregon knows, Ontario is one
of the jnaln outlets by rail for that vast
During the Fall and Spring seasons the
roads from Ontario to "the Interior coun
try are lined with freight wagons, which
are burdened with supplies for various
towns, large stock ranches and smaller
homes scattered far away among the hills
and volleys of a jrreat country so little
known to the outside world. These large
wagons, often two and three trailed to
gether, drawn by teams of six to a dozen
horses, form interesting scenes as they
slowly move westward with their heavy
loads. The driver usually rides one of
the "wheel" horses, and the jingling of
many bells on the harness hames warns
those who are coming from the opposite
dlrectipn to avoid blocking narrow and
In the Spring the wagons come loaded
with wool and return from Ontario to
the Interior with their large supplies of
merchandise. The wool Is generally stored
in large warehouses till such time as the
owners see fit to ship It by rail to Uls
This season's shipment of wool to On
tario has been In excess of any previous
year, and the large warehouses have been
unable to contain all of it. At present
there are large quantities of It piled out in
the open air. The amount of wool that
has been brought to Ontario this Spring
is about 2,500,000 pounds, and it has ah
been sold at a good figure. The price of
wool varies according to Quality, and at
present It Is selling at 12 toVlt cents ptr
Supposing the wool to have been sold at
an average of 13 cents per -pound, the
amount of wool that has been brought to
Ontario this year has brought its owners
The shipment of sheep from Ontario
last year was not so much as would nat
urally be expected from the amount of
wool that is annually sent from the same
station. The reason for this is that they
are changed from one range to another for
the Summer season and the shipments; are
largely made from other points.
But the ranee tributary to Ontario is
not used only for sheep, but pastures,
large proportion of other livestock. For
Instance, durlnir 1902 there were Z7o cars
of range horses shipped from Ontario, and
in the same period there were 425 carloads
of cattle shipped from there also.
Where there Is sagebrush the fertility
of the soil may be determined by Its
size, that is, taking into consideration the
natural moisture of the land. In almost
all of the country included In the Snake
River Basin the sagebrush Is of a kind
that shows a superior quality of land, and
the country adjacent to Ontario is partic
ularly well-marked In this way.
And there are other things that give
proof of the excellent quality of land about
Ontario. One thing is Its appearance,
which is that of a superior sandy loam,
and another is its products.
Various fairs have awarded medals for
fruit raised in the vicinity of Ontario,
and samples sent to Eastern dealers have
brought many compliments to their grow
ers. And yet there have been but few ef
forts made for the production of fruit;
people having been meeting with so much
success In raising other kinds of crops.
By far the most profitable crop that
Is produced on that land is alfalfa hay.
This kind of hay is only fitted for a dry
climate where the land Is Irrigated. It be
gins growing with the earliest Introduc
tion of Spring, and no matter how much It
is pastured or cut to the ground it will in
sist on growing, if irrigated, until the
frosts of early Winter put a check to it.
Another great advantage of this hay la
Its long life. It will live for 20 years if
properly cared for, but it is best to reseed
it every few years, or rest the land with
another kind of crop occasionally. Its
roots will penetrate the ground to a depth
often of more than 20 feet, thus obtaining
its food from the deep subsoil also. "When
there Is plenty of water for it. as much as
three crops may be cut on the same
ground during one season, and after the
last cutting it will grow high enough, as
a rule, to afford good pasturage In the
Alfalfa will produce during a season
from six to ten tons per acre, and this
can be sold at home for from S3 to $15 per
ton, varying with supply and demand.
Stockowners will reaally buy it for cash
in the Fall and will bring their herds to
the ranch to be fed.
This season, it is said, hay is being
contracted at $2 to $7 per ton in the stack.
Last Winter it brought as much as $15
per ton. After seeding there is no ex
pense in producing It, except to irrigate
it and harvest It.
The amount o'f land under cultivation in
the vicinity of Ontario is about 10,000
acres, according to an estimate of a
gentleman indirectly connected with the
United States Land Office at Burns, Or.
The land in the same locality which is
not Improved amounts to about 12,880
acres. The latter figures are for land that
is located below irrigating ditches, and to
which water Is accessible.
Some people may wonder at the great
per oent of ground still Idle, out there are
several reasons for It.
Almost half of the land of this vicinity
long ago passed Into the hands of The
Dalles Military Road Company and the
"Willamette Valley Military Road Com
pany. The. Government agreed to give
the companies a certain amount of land
for building roads through to the coast
In the early times. For a long time the
lands were tied up with litigation, but
this Is ended and the companies have been
given their final deeds to it.
For some time the land of The Dalles
Military Road Company have been on the
market, but the other company is not as
yet selling It Thus some rich land has
been unattainable, but it is probable that
In the near future it will all be settled.
Ar other reason for the slowness in
settling up the country was the lack, until
recently, of canals for water. Now, how
ever, the land Is practically all under
ditch and Is rapidly being Improved.
One destructive feature of which On
tario can boast is its great fi3h hatchery,
which the Government is establishing
there. About a year ago the racks were
put In the stream for the capture of
salmon, and In October of last year the
first hatching of salmon was done
The equipment and room was not suf
ficient at first for the capacity that was
iieslred, and now a large hatchery will
soon be erected that will afford room4for
tne nanaung or 20.000,000 young nsn. j.t win
be 217 feet by 62 feet, and will contain 320
racko. It will be possible to hatch In it
as much as 40.000,000 eggs. It will be the
largest hatchery In the Northwest,
Mining; in Snake River.
Some cay a method whl probably be
found for the successful mining of gold
In Snake River. Just where the gold
originally came from Is a matter of spec
ulation, but, be that as It may, the gold
In the sands of Snake River would be
worth millions If there were only some
way of obtaining It at a profit.
On most of the sandy bars of the river a
mining man can wash out the sand and
story corrugated warehouse, which is the
supply department for the entire system
of the company. Crews with supplies are
sent out from this depot to extend tele
phone lines throughout the country, or to
make repairs. In the establishment of
this station the company has expended
about $75,000. Some Idea of the growth of
the city may be gathered from the Im
mense telephdne business done in the way
of putting up new Instruments.
MRS. CLARA FITCH DIES.
Deceanccl Had Been In Falling
Health for Many Month.
Mrs. Clara M. Fitch, wife of George A.
Fitch, the well-known railway engineer,
died yesterday afternoon at her home, 27
Grand avenue, after having been In fall
ing health for the past nine months. It
is now four years since her daughter.
Miss Clara Fitch, was murdered. In Cyclo
Park under most distressing circum
stances. It was a terrible shock to the
family, and to Mrs. Fitch in particular.
Mrs. Fitch was 49 years old. She was
born In Lancaster, Pa., and came direct
to Portland with her husband 20 years
ago, and had made her home here ever
since. She Is survived by her husband
and three children, who are as follows:

Work on the new steamer Telephone,
at the foot of Clay street, is progressing

It will still be a month before she is

COAL FROM AUSTRALIA.

Many Cargoes Coming Because
The strike at the Vancouver Island
collieries, as well as causing a great loss
to the miners and the merchants of Van
couver Island, has given the Australian
and Japanese collieries a chance to make
sales of many cargoes of coal, which
would have otherwise come from the is
land mines. When the strike took place
Robert Dunsmuir & Sons at once char
tered a large number of sailing vessels and
steamers, bringing cargoes both from the
Japanese collieries and from Australia,
and there is now a larger fleet of coal
carriers en route to San Francisco than at
any time previous. In this connection
the San Francisco Chronicle says:
"From now on the vessels listed as on
the way from Newcastle, Aus., with coal,
will be arriving almost dally with their
welcome cargoes. The forerunners of
the great fleet, representing a tonnage
passing the 150.000 mark, have been listed
for many weeks past, or almost since the
duty was removed from coal, and should
now be putting In an appearance. Their
cargoes, as a result of the strike In the
British Columbia mines, have been great
ly needed. Never In the history of ship
ping here have so many coal-laden ships
been on way from Newcastle, and It Is not
unlikely that three or four arrivals from
that port will soon be a common occurrence."
Germ Infected Air.
Malaria is not confined exclusively to the swamps
and marshy regions of the country, "but wherever there is
bad air this insidious foe to health is found. Poisonous
vapors and gases from sewers, and the musty air of damp
cellars are laden with the germs of this miserable disease,
which are breathed into the lungs and taken up by the
Wood and transmitted to every part of the body. Then
you begin to feel out of sorts without ever suspecting the
cause. No energy or appetite, dull headaches, sleepy and
tired and completely fagged out from the slightest exer
tion, are some of the deplorable effects of this enfeebling
malady. As the disease progresses and the blood becomes
more deeply poisoned boils and abscesses and dark or
yellow spots appear upon the skin. When the poison is
