Corner D. Sanborn, of Oregon His
torical Society, Completes Plan
to Perpetuate Only Visible
Evidence of Explorers.
On the broad beach facing; the Pa
Jlflc Ocean, not far from Tillamook
Head, on the Oregon Coast, is a spot
that was made historic years ago by
a little band of rugged explorers who
ramped there for the sole purpose of
making; salt. These men were the
members of the Lewis and Clark expe
dition, who, while their brother trail
blazers remained further inland, were
ordered to the edge of the ocean to
secure that staple of life salt with
out which they were practically un
able to subsist.
After reaching; the Pacific, the men
found that they would be unable to
camp at any place other than where
there was a sufficiency of fresh water.
So they followed the coast line to the
mouth of Necanicum River, up which
they went for 20 miles before making;
camp. Their stopping; place was near
the present site of the town of Seaside.
It was at this spot that the little
band of men remained for about two
months, manufacturing; salt from sea
water. Cairns were built, in which
the kettles used for the purpose of boil
ing: the water were placed. The kettles
were of graduating sizes, made to lit one
Inside of the other, so they could be
carried more easily.
Cairns Almost Intact.
The cairns which were built are now
standing; almost intact, and are the only
tangible relics of the Lewis and Clark
trail to the Pacific. It is now proposed
that a monument be constructed at this
place.
Toward this end. Homer D. Sanborn,
an Oregon pioneer, has been working for
many years. After going over the greater
part of the Lewis and Clark trail, Mr.
JSanborn became convinced that there was
no place more fitting to commemorate in
stone the deeds of these brave white
men who first surveyed this Western
country.
On July 4, this year, the cornerstone
of the monument, a picture of which is
'here shown, will be laid, if present plans
do not fail. The monument will be 64
feet high, 16 feet square at the bottom,
and will enclose the old salt cairns of
Lewis and Clark. The monument is to
be built under the auspices of the Ore
iron Historical -Society, and will be con
structed of a stone that is peculiar to
that section of the country.
There will be four bronze grills looking
on the interior, above which, on the out
ride, will be tablets with the names of
the original party which camped on the
spot. One interesting feature of the place
Is the fact that, standing near the site
of the cairns and looking toward the
mountains in the distance, one may see
a perfect profile of George Washington
outlined against the sky. The silhouette
Df the "Father of His Country"" is formed
by the tops "of the mountains, and can
be seen In the drawing here shown.
Long Search. Rewarded.
It was only after much research and
labor on the part of Mr. Sanborn and
members of the Oregon Historical So
ciety that- the location of the exact site
where stood the salt cairns was dis
covered. Old Indian, men and women
ivere called to give testimony on the
subject.
About 10 years ago Mr. Sanborn and
the Historical Society had a wooden fence
built around the cairns to protect them,
but it was not long before this was torn
away. Mr. Sanborn has worked unceas
ingly on the project to mark the spot in
such a manner that later generations
would be able to gaze on the historic
Dairns as they were in the olden days.
The monument, when built, will preserve
the cairns and keep them practically in
tact for many years.
Interesting indeed is the brief story
Df the salt-making told by Captain
Clark in his diary, and doubly so be
cause In this recital does the bold ex
plorer allow himself to write' the only
bit of sentiment that occurs in his
prosaic tale of the entire trip. Cap
tain Clark accompaniej the salt-making
party on its first trip to the ocean,
but returned soon to Fort Clatsop,
where the main body of the party was
stationed.
Relating to the work of those dele
gated to make salt, the following ex
cerpt from Captain Clark's diary is
taken:
FORT CLATSOP, Sunday.' 5th of January,
3806. At 5 P. M. Wlllard and Wiser re
turned. . . . They inform m that It was
not until the Sth day after leaving the fort
that they could find a convenient place for
leaking salt; that they had at length estab
lished themselves on the sea coast about
15 miles southwest from this, near the
houses of some Clatsop., and Kilamox fam
ilies; that the Indians were very friendly.
These men also 'nformed us that
the saltmakers. with their assistance, had
erected a suitable camp, had killed an elk
and several deer and secured a good stock
of meat. They commenced the making of
salt and found that they could make from
three quarts to a gallon a day.
Salt Proves Great Treat.
We found it excellent, white and fine, but
not so strong as the rock salt, or that made
in Kentucky or the western part of the
United States. This salt was a great treat
to most of the party, having not had any
siince the L'Oth ult. As to myself, I care but
Jlttle whether I have any with my meat or
not. provided the meat Is fat, having from
habit become entirely careless about my diet,
and I have learned to think that if the cord
he sufficiently strong which binds soul and
body together, it does not so much matter
about the materials which compose it.
On June 8, 1900, L. B. Cox and Wil
liam Galloway, members of a research
committee of the Oregon Historical So
ciety, in company with Carlos W. Shane,
Preston W. Gillette, Silas B. Smith and
other persons, visited the site of Port
Clatsop, where Lewis and Clark were
encamped in 1806. On the following
day the committee visited the place
where the old salt cairns were built,
and reported to the Historical Society
is follows:
On June 9 your committee visited Clatsop
Beach for the purpose of identifying the re
mains of the salt cairns there erected by
l.ewla and Clark. They secured the attend
ance of Tsinlstum. a full-blood Clatuop squaw
who is said to be 86 years of age, and to be
one of the three full-blood Clatsop Indiana
now living. She visited the remains of these
salt works as they are now to be seen upon
the ground, and in an unqualified manner
stated that she had frequently been on the
pot with her mother and other Indians who
were living In that lacallty at the time of
Lewis and Clark's expedition, and that they
had told her this was the place where Lewis
ind Clark's men had made salt
Judge Thomas A. Mc Bride, of Oregon
City, has since visited the same spot and
Identified it as the place pointed out to him
by the mother of Silas B. Smith, who was
the daughter of Chief Coboway, as the place
where Lewis and Clark's men had made salt.
This, then, is the place where it is

FULL FORCE NOT AT WORK
Willamette Iron Works Much Ham
pered by Strike.
PORTLAND," June 17. (To the Editor.)
Referring to the notice in The Oregonlan
today headed "Full Force at Work," and
naming the "elements of serenity" which
are alleged to prevail around the Willamette
Iron A Steel Works. I would say that since
this information is stated to have emanated
from Mr. Ball, there must have been some
mistake in its transmission, or else Mr. Ball
must have had an extremely optimistic feel
ing when he gave out this interview.
It is true that we have about 40 men
employed in our machine shops, and it is
also true that in the other departments of
our work there are about 200 men employed,
none of whom seem to be suffering right
now with the strike microbe, and to that
extent everything is serene and harmonious,
but of the 0 men employed in our machine
shop, only about eight are full-fledged ma
chinists, the balance being made up of ap
prentices, handy men and helpers.
As a result, we are greatly hampered in
this department in the fulfillment of present
and prospective business, as It is practically
Impossible to round out the completion of
such specialties as we manufacture with
out the services of a large number of com
petent machinists. '
In fact, we are not only suffering loss
of a large amount of business and receiv
ing cancellations of orders already in hand,
but have also found ft necessary to refrain
from submitting a bid on the work" of
transforming the transport Thomas. This
Is a contract amounting to something In
the neighborhood of $300,000. which we
would have been very glad to have figured
on had there been any stability in local
labor conditions; but with the" uncertainty
of these conditions which is in force last
now, we can hardly take the risk of figuring
on any large contracts carrying penalty
clauses, etc
With such handicaps, it is useless to pre-i
tend that we are satisfied with the pro
duction of our plant, and if the various
labor agitators from San Francisco and
other union strongholds, who have insti
gated this present absurd strike, gather
comfort from the thought that they have
seriously upset our business, they are no
doubt enjoying an ecstasy of delight at the
present moment.
On the other hand, they -have more than
ever demonstrated the general "cussedness"
of modern labor unionism, by depriving a
lot of honest mechanics, of the pursuit of
their legltimte industries, and the fruit of
such industries, in the way of liberal wages.
As a consequence, the real object of these
agitators, which is the breaking down of
the industrial independence of Portland, Is
rather farther from attainment than ever,
and when these "angels of peace" finally
decamp from this community, the songs
of their punctured triumph will not be of
a character which will rouse the enthusiasm
of their deluded followers.

TACOMA, Wash., June 18. (Special.)
John W. Corson, of Malheur County,
Oregon, filed suit in the United States
Court today against E. W. Johnson and
his wife, Maud 1. Johnson, seeking to
recover a fifteen thirty-seconds' inter-
est in unpatented placer claims known
as the Wonder and Snake River prop
erties In the Cape Nome recording dis
trict. To the end that all tne titles might
rest in one person, it is alleged that in
1907 the properties were deeded to Mrs.
Johnson as trustee. The Oregon man
alleges that since then the defendants
have taken out more than 1,000,000 at a
cost of not exceeding f 100,000. Corson al
leges that for a time he was treated
as a partner by the Johnsons, and that
he received payments out of the earn
ings of the mines aggregating $40,000.
Corson asserts that he has asked a
settlement, but that it was refused. He
asks that the defendants be required
to answer under oath 87 questions, and
that a receiver be -appointed to take
charge of the mine.

Democrat Announces His Can
didacy for Governor.
POSITION IS MADE PLAIN
Ex-President of State Lewis and
Clark Commission Defines His'
Policies and Prophesies Suc
cess of Minor Party.
Jefferson Myers, a prominent Port
land citizen, and ex-presldent of the
State Lewis and Clark Exposition
Commission, yesterday announced his
candidacy for the Democratic primary
nomination for Governor. Mr. Myers
had received several hundred letters
from Democrats in various sectipns of
the state urging him to be a candidate.
Mr. Myers" announcement is ad
dressed to the Democratic voters of
the state and is as follows: ,
I have decided to become a candidate
for the Democratic nomination for Gov
ernor at the coming state primary elec
tion. If nominated. I propose and promise
to make an aggressive campaign tor the
success of the entire state ticket, as well
as for the success of the Democratic can
didates in the different counties of th
state. If nominated, my campaign will
be upon the Issue of an honest, economical,
business administration, and, if c-leetad, I
will enter upon the duties of the office in
the full knowledge that I was selected
directly by the people as their representa
tive and servant to administer the laws,
and I would be absolutely untrammelled by
pre-election or political promlseis.
Being heartily in favor of the direct
primary, the recall, corrupt practices act
and statement number one. which is vir
tually permission to the people to choose
for themselves their United States Sen
ators, I would most vigorously opose all
movements tending to their annulment.
Political conditions in our state are such
that the prospects for Democratic ascen
dency are brighter than for years l ast- Not
only is there prevalent In the entire coun
try, as well as In Oregon, a feeilng of un
rest and dissatisfaction among the people
as regards the extravagant official conduct
of the party in power, but anions the
avowed leaders of the dominant party groat
and apparently irreconcilable differences ex
ist, one with another, and with all of them,
the people appear to be more or lass, dis
gusted. Whenever a political organization
remains dominant so long as to become in
toxicated with power and reckless regard
ing the people's rights, the people, us a
whole, are prone to throw off the shackles
of petty bosslsm and establish a new era
in governmental affairs.
Within the Democratic organization In
Oregon are many men eminently capable
of discharging with credit and honor to
their party, themselves and the state, the
duties of the exalted office of Governor
At this time personalities. If there are any
should be buried and all unite for the god
of the party and of the people of the state.
In case a majority of the party members
declare by their votes at the nrtmwrv
they desire some man other l nan myself
as their candidate, I will be found laboring
for the success of any man oar party
chooses.

Reasons Why Lak
Its Beauty
It is a well-established fact that people are
healthier and happier in harmonious surround
ings than where the reverse is true. Lake
Lytle is beautiful in every sense of the word.
A sparkling little fresh-water lake lies like a
jewel at the base of the stern, wooded moun
tains, while to the west is a wonderful stretch
of white, sandy beach, with the murmuring
sea just beyond. Io more beautiful spot can
be found in all the wonderful West. (,
Its Climate
Where will you find its equal? Temperate
the year around. Eighty-five is about as high
as the mercury ever climbs, and it rarely drops
to bejow freezing point, The ocean and moun
tain breezes are bracing and invigorating,
while the peculiar location prevents the raw
ocean winds sweeping the place and rendering
life unpleasant, as at many ocean resorts.
Healthfullness
A perpetual health resort. Its equable cli
mate makes it as desirable a Winter as a Sum
mer home. No dust, no insect pests, no unsani
tary conditions menace the health at Lake
Lytle. Quiet, it is a veritable retreat where
those who desire may live close to Nature's
heart and yet enjoy the comforts of a city
home.
Location .
Tillamook County is readily conceded to be
among the most favored counties in the State
If you knew that an investment of $25 now would buy you a $100 lot, which in one year say next Summer with the
railroad carrying thousands of tourists into Lake Lytle, would command a price of $300, would you buy? That's what
you may expect at Lake Lytle.- Call upon us for a plat, a price list and particulars.

30,000,000,000 feet. There are large unde

OF INDIAN TONGUES.
Dr. Frachtenbnrg Here for Smith

Sam Broke Treaty.
To prepare a grammar of the lan
guage spoken by each tribe of Indians
in the Pacific Northwest, and which
will be deposited in the archives of the
Smithsonian Institution at Washing
ton, Dr. Leo J. Frachtenburg arrived
in Portland yesterday on his second
journey to the wigwams of the original
Americans. Dr. Frachtenburg conducts
his studies while living among the In
dians, if he finds it impossible to In
duce them to come to him, and has be
come an expert in a number of the
tongues used by the red men.
. He spent last year among the Coos
tribe of Indians, and made the discov
ery that those Indians have a large
claim against both the State of Ore
gon and the Government of the United
States, which would enrich the living
members of the tribe beyond their
grandest dreams of wealth if it could
be collected. "
When seen at the Hotel Portland,
Dr. Frachtenburg said:
"The Smithsonian Institution has
deemed it wise to gather and preserve
the languages of the American Indians,
and has detailed a number of men to
that work. This is my second trip to
Oregon, as 1 spent last year with the
Coos Indians. '
"We have been engaged In the work
for a number of years and probably
will complete the Pacific Northwest

"This year I will begin with the
Molalla tribe, which is practically ex
tinct. I have information of only three
living members. They are Molalla Kate
Williams, who lives on the Slletz Res
ervation; Molalla Henry, at Oregon City,
and Stevens Savage, residing some
where on North River. I will endeavor
to get one or more of these Indians,
who speak good English, to translate
for me and will prepare a report after
carefully checking the information
with other Indians of the same tribe.
After finishing with the Molalla tribe
I will take up the Alsea Indians, of
which there are about 15 scattered
over the Slletz Reservation, and there
may be others in the state.
"It is a curious fact that there are
more than 100 distlnt languages spoken
by the American Indians, derived from
E4 linguistic stocks. And it is true
that different tribes of Indians resid
ing in the same neighborhood are un
able to communicate with one another
except by the use of English.
"We always accumulate all the tra
ditional information which can be se

Indian tongue and a literal translation
given in English. In that way we have
acquired a great deal of interesting in

known that the Coos tribe has a claim
against the State of Oregon and the
Government for , forcibly removing
them from their lands and failure to
keep treaty agreements.
"I was told about it by some of the
old men of the tribe, who assert that
they are now wanderers for that rea
son. That tribe formerly lived around
Coos Bay. In 1852 they ceded one-half
of their territory to the United States,
the consideration being that each In
dian was to receive a wagon and two
cows. The Government agreed, also,
to build them houses and schools. It
was never done, they claim, and when
the Rogue River Indian War broke out
in 1872 they were removed to Fort

Guaranteed Improvements
With every lot sold at Lake Lytle, the company
will give a guarantee to improve the principal
streets ; purest mountain water will be piped to
the lots bordering on the principal streets;
will build a first-class depot on the premises.
When the new railroad is complete, Lake
Lytle will be the nearest beach to Portland.
A Desirable Investment
All these advantages make Lake Lytle a place
where a little money is sure to make you more.
If not desired for a home, a lot here is a good
investment, for there is every reason to be

year or two will see the lots which may now
be bought at a very low cost selling for a good
advance.
Reasonable Price and
Easy Terms
With all its natural advantages and proximity
to Portland, one would naturally expect land
to be held far in advance of what it is. How
ever, prices are low and terms easy excep
tionally so, considering the actual value of
fered and the certainty of the rush for lots as
soon as the public becomes aware of the de
sirability of acquiring a lot at Lake Lytle.
wanted the Coos to remove to the Slletz
Reservation, and the last council the
Coos ever held pertained to that propo
sition. They decided that they would
no longer be subservient to Indian
agents and would return to their own
country around Coos Bay. When they
arrived there they found that the
whites had come in and they were not
allowed to occupy their lands. Since
then they have been a nomadic tribe.
"I will be at the Hotel Portland for
three months, and I would be glad to
receive Information of the whereabouts
of any member of the Molalla or Alsea
tribes which may be possessed by Ore

people can be of assistance regarding
these and other Indians."

TALKS ON TEETH
By THE REX DENTAL CO, DENTISTS
We Aim to Save Teeth
We rarely have to extract teeth.
The indiscriminate "pulling" of nat
ural teeth is a barbarous practice and
the dentist who resorts to such methods
so as to make room for a partial plate
or ordinary bridge work deserves to be
drummed out of the profession.
But you will see many an "ad" which
tells of this or that dentist's skill In
pulling teeth "without pain."
He might be able to do what he
claims, and more or less painlessly, but
he has done an injury to his patient
that can never be cured.
There is nothing to equal Nature's
teeth. We aim to save all we can.
Where teeth have been lost through
disease or ignorant dentistry and there
are "holes In the line" we are the logi
cal dentists to come and talk to, for
we can restore the missing teeth, put
those that are left in good condition and
yet not ask you to fill up your mouth
with a partial plate. This Is what it
means to restore teeth by the ALVE
OLAR METHOD, and we are the origi
nators and sole owners of this wonder
ful plan. It is a piece of work that
calls for no cutting or boring Into the
gums.
The average dentist known nothing
better than plate or bridge work be
tween teeth.
If you have only a few teeth left,
say some front teeth upper and lower,
he is up against it and can only sug
gest a plate.
With the ALVEOLAR SYSTEM wa
can use these front teeth to build
around and replaoe the entire set, up
per or lower, so they will be as solid
as though they grew In your gums.
We restore teeth between and on
either side of Nature's teeth; the rest
of the dental fraternity can only re
store between teeth, using a sort of
cantilever bridge structure that is high
in the center and fastened to "pier"
teeth at each end. You dare not bite
on such a bridge. It is not practical
and will soon destroy the pier teeth.
With Alveolar Teeth we say, go and
eat with them; that's what they re for.
They are real teeth in looks and action.
The others are "false" teeth.
Ours beautify the face; the others
disfigure it. Pyorrhea loose teeth) we
guarantee to cure and the cure will be
permanent.
Will you come to one of our offices
and allow us to make a careful exami
nation of your teeth?
In no other way can we tell you what
we can do for you. No two caaes of
teeth restoration are alike. Each one
calls for individual treatment.
The visit will cost you nothing, but
your time, and it will be worth the
time.
Come as soon as you can. If it is
not convenient to call at once, send for
our free booklet, "The Alveolar System
of Dentistry." When you read the book .
you will surely call on us.
