THE SUNDAY OKEGONIAtf, PORTLAND. JANUARY- 14, 1900.
ORTCANBYA "HAS BEEN"
THBEC OLD BATTERIES OF
HEAVT GTJKS ARE USELESS.
PIctnrcsane Feature of tbe Old Post
Soon to Be Cnansred to a.
Fort CanUy. as a fighter, .isi a. has been.
Once It was a mlshty fort, vrith three
powerful batteries located upon three
commanding eminences at the jcry mmJ.
ot the Columbia, on the north, or T7osh
incton shore. Theao batteries, called the
eak the center and the est. respectively,
are ranged to a line from the easterly to
the Tvesterly side of the gTeat promontory
at the southerly extremity of Cape Disap
pointment, Korxh Head being the northerly
,-., t rntip. The east battery
has eight 10-inch smooth-bore subs, all
mounted, and frowning over the parapet,
but as harmless as Dundee Heeds bronze
lions on Fourteenth street, Portland. This
battery is about 200 feet above the sea
level. The center battery has three guns
mounted. Of these two are eight-inch
converted rifles and one is a la-Inch
Bmooth-bore. There are four Dismounted
smooth-bores -within the emplacement.
This battery is some COO feet above sta
level and is a most commanding site. The
west bat.ery-with a rOO-foot elevation above
eea level, has five guns mounted; two
eight-Inch converted and three 10-lnch
smooth-bores. Also lour dismounted
smooth-bores. At each one of theee bat
teries is an old-fashioned magazine, and
also huge conical piles of cannon balls
ready to be rammed into the muzzle
loaders of the days of long ago. It is
a melancholy spectacle, this once powerful
-enyf roid and rust and rot; unkempt
grass and broken places; an air of desola
tion everywhere. Upon the archway of
the -wagon entrance to the cen-ter battery
a sign reads, "Shut the Gate," and the
gate itself is sprawled -wide open and In
terlocked with creepers that seem to claim
it to a forgotten era. Over the -wicket
gate entrance is the prohibition: "Posi
tively no admittance"; yet the gate is gone
and the lizards dart around in surprise at
the un-wdnted Intrusion.
The old approach to these batteries is in
like dilapidation. It comes up from the
post on the easterly side of the fort. A
wide graveled way through a romantic
spruce grove that forks near the summit;
one road leading to the east battery and
the other to the center, and thence by a
einuous course to the -west battery. Al
most any day a romantic scene may be
found along this neglected way. A youns
girl with rarely beautiful golden hair
flowing over her statuesque shoulders as
she sits astride the old gray horse and
wanders about the ruin. She is the daugh
ter of the post engineer, an artist and pho
tographer, by the way, of no mean ability,
Of late yeaTs a new wagon way has been
made with a better grade. It leads from
the post past the lighthouse-keeper's home
to the west battery. Intersecting the old
road half way up the hill.
In the emplacement of the west battery,
n its extreme westerly margin, the Cape
Disappointment lighthouse tower is erect
ed. This light, once a first-class sea coast
beacon, is now only a harbor light, a
fourth-class revolvlrg lens. It was a "dis
appointment" to the mariner because it
was really Inside of the seacoast line, as
was also true of Fort Stevens light; both
of these lights have therefore been dis
used as ocean beacons. Hard by the light
house tower is a small caboose, with heat
ing apparatus. The lighthouse department
allows the life-saving crew to use this as
This frowning fortress has Tvlthin It
nothing of danger beyond its frown. Tet
the site Is unapproachable as an ocean de
fense, and it will within two years be
converted Into one of the most powerful
of Uncle Sam's sea coast forts. It has
lately "been turned over to the engineer's
department. All of the garrison except 12
men. including a sergeant and corporal,
hav iaeen transferred to Fort Stevens,
and Fort Canby Is now only a sub-post,
with the commanding officer of Fort
Stevens in charge. It is expected that a
16-gun mortaT battery will soon replace the
center battery- It may not be located
in exactly the same spot. Most likely it
will be further away from the rocky front
which might possibly yield partially, to
the most powerful naval ordnance of pres
ent or future armament. It may be lo
cated with its disappearing guns just over
the brow of this highest point out of all
possible danger. This is Wholly practica
ble, as it is not necessary for the gunner
to see the ship In firing at her. The en
tire sea front, as far out as mortars can
reach, has been surveyed by United States
engineers and laid off into squares. It is
only necessary for the lookout officer to
direct the sunner by telephone to aim at
a given square, the lookout officer having
. his maps and marine glasses and Instru
ments whereby the eract location of the
warship can be determined promptly ana
unerringly. Other modern guns, suitable
for defense, will man the east and west
The most picturesque and Interesting fea
ture of Fort Canby. is its post, where tfro
gairrison have their homes. It Is located
-upon the westerly end of the shore ot
Baker's bay and on the easterly side of the
high promontory on. "which the batteries
are erected. It is in a grand curve ot
that bay and so hemmed in by the high
hills as to shut off all view of the Co
lumbia river except a glimpse to be had
from the officers quarters at the upper
end of th village. It is an ideal elte for
a battery post. It is absolutely land
locked against wind storms, securing not
only protection from high sea -winds and
sea swells, but also a perfectly quiet haven
for bay craft. The contrast in this respect
between it and Hwajco, three miles further
up th bay, is most striking. At the lat
ter place the winds and sea swells of win
ter render it unsafe for bay craft, which
at the same time would lie as still as a
log at Fort Canby -wharf. But the im
portant feature of this -site is its perfect
protection from the attack of warships
on the ocean. As Is well known, the guns
on warships cannot be fired at an eleva
tion exceeding 15 degrees, because of the
fatal rebonnd against the deck. This fact
prevent them from shelling the post. To
gain distance enough to overcome the ele
vation of the protecting promontory, the
ships would have to get entirely out ot
range of the fort.
This sub-post has no flag and fires no
salutes, which features constitute the dis
tinction between it and a full post. Re
cently, on the occasion of Vice-President
Hobart's death, a salute of 17 guns was
fired from Fort Stevens batteries and the
United States flag was lowered to half
mast at that post, but at Fort Canby
nothing of the kind occurred. A United
States flag was at half-mast there, it is
true, but it was the one that flies over the
life-saving station. Junior Sergeant W.
B. McClennahan. batters' M, Thirteenth
United States artillery, the officer a
charge, will soon be promoted to the com
mand of Fort Columbia, sub-port in place
of Sergeant Bodal, whose term of enlist
ment will expire Sergeant McCJennahan
is a Milrcy. Pa., lad, 25 years of age, and
enlisted in 1S97. He was a locomotive en
gineer on the Baltimore & Ohio, but was
suspended during the hard times then
prevailing. He joined the army to avoid
idleness. His alertness and talents secured
him rapid promotion. But he will return
to civjl life as a Baltmore &. Ohio engineer
at the end of his term.
This soldiers' village is a picturesque
saot. It stretches along the shore of the
bay for nearly a half mile, with the usual
barracks and other buildings of a post, to
the eminence at the aristocratic upper
end. where the officers' quarters are located-
It is nicely lawned and has one
street "well macadamized and one plank
sidewalk next to the bay. Beyond the
guordhouse, the fiat or beach land widens
n front of the officers' quarters into a
mer. It Is also the parade ground for the
fort. It likewise serves as the grounds
for target practice by all the artillery
men at the mouth of the river. It is
some 400x1500 feet In area. A splendid tra
ret is created at the upper end of the
lawn with a high hill in the background.
During target practice sentries are posted
at the approaches to warn unwary pass
ers aloes' the highways. This obstruction
necessitates a detour for footmen and
horsemen by way of a trail through
"aiooneyvMe," a most Interesting suburb
of this picturesque post.
Some dispute has existed as to the cor
rect name for thia suburb: "Mooneyville,
"Moodyville" or "Mulyvllle." The post
tailor, an old-time ex-soldler of the gar
rison, says he built the second house there
and that it is "Muleyville"; so named be
cause of the many muley-head cows once
kept there by the soldiers' families. Seven
mules and one spavined cayuse that range
th Tinf-nro tKprp nt this time might add a
new theory to that of the one-eyed tailor
as to the origin of the name. j."o .
"Montfwillfi" hf.R no origin except a mis
take in sound the idem sonans theory.
The artist e the post says tho name is
"MooneyviUe," after Sergeant 31ooney,
who built the first house m this suburb.
With this theory most of the old residents
agree. The sergeant in command searched
the post books for an official designation.
He found the place only referred to as a
cow pasture. On the whole, it Is safe to
say the true name is "MooneyviUe," where
years ago a number of married noncom
missioned officers and soldiers had built
houses for their families on me govern
note that the 22 heavy guns of this fort
win ba an entire loss. They have been
condemned by the government and It is
said they cannot even be given away a3
old iron. Bids will be called for to se
cure their removal. It does look as if
those guns could be let down the slopes
upon barges and hauled away with profit
by some man in the iron business. It
seems not, however, according to good
authority, and the guns at Canby consti
tute an elephant a brown one on the
hands of the ordnance department.
FAVORS SHEEP GRAZING
NO H0CH DER KAISER. "
Captain CogMan Would Xot Recite
fixe Famous Poem.
Captain J. B. Coghlan. the former gal
lant captain of the United States cru'ser
Raleigh, now In charge Qf the Port Or
chard naval station, Is spending two days
in Portland. Captain Coghlan was a guest
at the Commercial Club dinner last night,
and when friends begged him for a rendi
tion of the "Hoch der Kaiser" poem in
the semi-privacy of the smoking-room, he
smiled, sheok his head and said: "No
Hoch der Kaiser.' " The captain said he
was enjoying his two days of absence
very much, as Port Orchard was not a
very lively plaee. While malting no com
plaint whatever for having to do shore
duty, he said he would be rather glad
when his turn again came to take charge
of a ship.
Some one asked the captain what would
be tho final result In the Sampson-Schley

SALEM, Or., Jan. 13. In the opinion
of Captain S B. Ormsby, United Stat
superintendent of forest reserves, the clos
ing of the Cascade reserve as a grazing
ground will, f effected, prdve a terrific
Viirvor rv tho 5hwwi industry. Sneaking of
the matter tonight, Captain Ormeby said:
"That nart of the Cascade reserve lying
south of the White river, and now open
to sheep grazing, will furnish pasture tue
coming season for 2W.C00 sheep. These
sheep are worth on an average 54 per
head at the present time, or in the aggre
gate $SOO,000. Next shearing time these
200,000 sheep will give an average yield
of 7Vs pounds of wool per head, or a total
of 1,500,000 pounds of unwashed wool. Be
fore these sheep are started for the moun
tain ranges in tho spring the v.ool will
be worth 20 cents a pound, and the total
value of the yield will be $300,000. Here is
an Investment of four-fifths of a million
dollars and more than $1,000,000 Is direct
ly concerned in the industry. This com
putation leaves out entirely the handling
time after the opening of tho next term.
In such a large structure there are hun
dreds of small things to do. Yesterday
one of the boilers In the basement was
heated up and found to work very well.
By this boiler two of the rooms in the
old annex on the north side of the ground
will be heated. The other boiler i3 not
yet ready, but will be scon. In the main
building the plastering has been prac
tically completed in the rough. It re
mains to put down the floors tleoughout,
and this will take a long time. Tho
court on the south side Is being partly
covered with concrete. Wide walks will
extena from the two main entrances to
the street, leaving- a space In the center
for a lawn. This arrangement is some
what different from the court of the
Thomoson building, in Central Albino,
which is covered with a solid sheet of
concrete, with nothing in the center to
relieve the monotony. An effort will be
made to get one or two rooms ready at
least for next term, as the shifting of
tho pupils will make it necessary to
provide another room at once for the
Holladay pupils. Some pupils come in
that time, and there are transfers which
will more than crowd the rooms at the
disposal of the school.

the event was highly enjoyable. The

occasion. Over the board were scattered
filmy sprays of soft foliage and ferns
Epergnes were filled with sweetly scented
violets, while there was also a profusion
of superb bride roses. The chief orna
