In all thoFe chronicles of his career
there is little or no mention made of
tlie first budding of the Renins which
was to raise htm to fame and start him
on the high road to success.
This budding, like. the geniu of
ef hers before and since, was fijst evi

at ill hale anil hearty -who remember

Whole Town N ItapldJt rkMlIni;.
On Sunday. May IS, 1890, an event
of some considerable importance to
Portland took place. Hn event which Is
most aptly linked with the. recent Ce
lilo Canal completion celebration. That
event was the shooting of the rapids
In the Columbia River at the Cascades
by the river steamer Harvest Queen,
then a, worthy old vessel loner promi
nent in Columbia and Willamette River
traffic. The event was a. conspicu
ously important occasion in the life of
The whole town went up the Colum
bia by rail or water. In every availa
ble rraft or vehicle, to witness the
feat, and in proportion to the size of
Portland and tributary country in those
days it was as big an event rs the re
cent Celllo Canal celebration. The func
tion drew Us patrons from men promi
nent in all wajks of life and The Ore
gonian. arising to the occasion of mak
ing the most of a Summer Sunday af
ternoon's inversion, had two men on
band to chronicle the passing events.
Homer C. Davenport was one and ha
had been "picked up'' literally front the
newspaper highways and byways of
Portland from out of the narrow con
fines of a weekly publication, which
has long stn'e passed from its then
rather ambitious management.
K. fj. Jones, of The Oregonian, fairly
dragged Mr. Davenport better known
as "Homer" along with him on the
trip and bade him make a, few sketches
of the spectacular happenings of the
day. Moving pictures were unknown
then and Davenport plied his pencil
with rapidity and turned in his draw
ings In time for them to be reproduced
via the route of crude engraving- In
vogue then in The Oregonian the fol
lOlgbt IralnsH Made In Day.
Kight individual drawings of the
crowd, the water, the rapids and of the
Harvest Queen as she plowed and tum
bled through the rapids were the sum
total of his day's labor. A modest
Ml. C. D." was all he affixed to the
drawings to identify them.
And no doubt there were many who
didn't even discover the "H. C. D." and,
until a few years later, when he began
to find himself, few realized that the
admittedly ordinary drawings in The
Oregonian that morning were the first
budding of the genius of Mr. Daven
port. But in those eight drawings there
was the start; the human touch of the
real artist; the beginning of Homer C.
Davenport's career. The Oregonian
had found him. and for two years
nursed him along, until, like the bird
of fancy and fame, he was swept by
the rising tide of his achievement to
San Francisco, where he took root and
grew until he was transplanted to the
metropolis. New York.
That Homer Davenport's career
should be so linked with an event of
importance in the history of Portland'
excitement in those days is merely in
cidental except that it happened. The
point is. the beginning of the career
of a cartoonist destined to become fa
mous, was an event more auspicious
for him than was realized at the time.
1-rom that memorable May IS 1890 to
the tragic May 2, 1912 a bare 22 years
Davenport grew and prospered, and
while Silverton. Or., aiwavs will be re
membered as his birthplace, so will
Portland be associated with his begin
ning by those who knew.
Three Columns til veil to Story.
On the front page of The Oregonian
Monday. May 19. 1S90. three columns
were given to chronicling the story and
a half column was of necessity carried
over onto page 2. Headlines shrieked
the event as follows: "She Shot the
Rapids The Harvest Queen Makes the
Perilous Run Safely Through the
Polling Waters The Dangerous Pas-sage
Is Made in Just Four Minutes It
Is Witnessed by Thousands A Full
Inscription of the Thrilling Scenes

..J"Ut ,he hoolinS of the rapids by the
Queen was an event which will live
in history and memory also
"This is the fourth time it has been
my lot to do this.- said Captain James
W. Troup, of The Dalles, yesterday
morning as he pulled the whistle cord
of the steamer Harvest Queen in an
swer to the many farewell salutes from
locomotives on the shore and small
craft in the river."
In this way The Oregonian reporter
began his vivid account of the day's
festivities and thrills, continuing:
"The fine steamer D. S. Baker pulled
away from her dock at 8:30, with
about 400 jolly Dalles people, on board,
and had disappeared around a rocky
point away down the Columbia River
by the time the Queen, with flying
colors and tooting whistle, got under
way about 20 minutes later.
"While everything went off smoothly
at The Dalles, the Jam for passenger
accommodation on the Portland steam
ers was great. It seemed that every
boy in the city wanted to see the big
toteamer shoot the perilous rapids."
The reporter took time to tell how
the R. R. Thompson took aboard some
100 persons, and the T. J. Potter took
on her complement of aOo. leaving sev
eral hundred on the dock. The crush,
be recorded, almost proved serious. Of
ficers and policemen could avail noth
ing. Bven half a dozen men jumped from
the dock to the narrow guards of tha
eteamers after they had pulled away.
DAVENPORT'S SKKTCHES ILLI
Trains of first eight, then 13 and then
six coaches left the Union Pacific Depct
in order and were soon speeding to the
Cascades, and Ticket Agent Taylor la
mented that he had not room for some
500 more who fain would go.
The crowd was good-natured and out
for all the thrill there were to garner
from the shooting of the rapids. '
The reporter for The Oregonian at
ome detail gave a pictureful descrip
tion of the arrival of the boats and
trains at the edge of the rapids, which
a short time after the Queen braved.
Whereupon he launched into the fol
lowing description of the day's events,
which herewith is broken only by the
omission of minor details:
"Satisfying himself that the crowd
had all arrived Captain Troup entered
the pilot house, followed by Captain
Miles Bell, of the steamer Modoc, who
stood ready to render assistance if
needed; Captain B. S. Edwards, of the
United States local inspection service;
P. Carsens, Captain Troup's chief
draughtsman, and an, .Oregonian re
porter. J. F. Montgomery, the well
known Portlander, occupied a promi
nent seat on the promenade deck and
Captain W. A. Whitcomb, of the Gov
ernment steamer Cascade, stood on the
extreme point of the hurricane deck.
E. G. Jones, of The Oregonian. shared
a portion of the 'texas' with Mr. Daven
port, tha artist, and Honorable T. A.
Stevens, Republican candidate for Dis
trict Attorney; Captain C. F. Jones, a
well-known steamboat man of Port
land; F. MeDermott, also of the United
States steamer inspection service; Dr.
W. Logan, of The Dalles; Captain J. M.
Smith. Samuel Lotan, William H. Fiske. J
wno was tne iirst purser tne Harvest
Queen ever had; Mr. Cheerry, British
Vice-Consul at Astoria; Harry Baugh
man and Russell C. Sewall, of Portland,
were in prominent places on the decks.
I. W . DeHnff Open Throttle.
"P. W. DeHuff, an engineer known
to every steamboat man. opened the
throttle at the given signal. Z. A.
Moody and Charles Dehm acted as as
sistants and O. Osborn and Al Lafey fed
the firebox. Fred Halfpape and a crew
of four manned the decks. Captain
Troup proved a man of nerve and took
things cool, although some of his as
sociates looked as it they would like
to have gone back on their bargains.
"When, with ar determined 'here-goes-to-the
bottom-or-to-Portland' look on
the face the captain began divesting
himself of his coat, cuffs and vest, tha
reporter prayerfully laid his hand on a
life preserver and. wished he was on
terra firma. A number of prominent
men had provided themselves with
floats in the shape of corilwood.
"A few minutes after 2 o'clock the
large steamer moved away from the
dock toward the swift incline of dark,
seething waves and at exactly 2:06 the
Queen was abreast of the small island
to the port side, and a short distance
above the rapids. The boat swune
gently and readily, head down, mind
ful of the confident touch of her cool
helmsman. Just below the foot of the
island the boat received the first im
pulse of the incline and struck the
'grand final' between the two danger
ous rocks which lie treacherously close
to the surface with the speed of a lo
comotive. "The first plunge was over and the
brave boat trembled and sank to her
guards in the disturbed foam of waters,
but the worst was over and Captain
Bell, grasping the -wheel. Captain Troup
pulled the whistle cord loud and long
in answer to the deafening salute which
came from boats and locomotives on
the sides. The heavy chop was struck
half a minute after the first groat fall
and the noble steamer careened and
groaned and quivered from the seeth
ing, boiling and fierce waters of the
cascades, while the port guard cracked

finish was made, the account says, and

It was this thrilling experience and
sight that inspired the first drawings
by Mr. Davenport the drawings which
went out to the world and eventually
won him place. He had drawn a few
things before but it was these draw
ings the first that appeared in The Ore
gonian and the subsequent ones of the
two years in Portland which followed
that put Davenport under way.
The Harvest Queen, which made the
perilous ride, is not the one which now
runs on the Willamette and Columbia.
The vessel which Davenport put into
black and white was built in 1873, be
ing 12 years old when she made the his
toric shoot. Her launching was a holi
day and many residents of Portland
at this time recall the event. The name
Harvest Queen was suggested by T. B.
Terry, because the vessel was built to
carry the grain from the abundant har
vests in the Columbia and W.illamette
valleys. She was the largest on the
river at the time and queen of the river
The Queen was 200 feet long and 40
feet wide and her passenger accommo
dations were hard to excel.
The Queen had been taken over the
narrows above The Dalles in 18S0 by
Captain Troup, being nearly lost in the
perilous passage at that time.

"BCvery woman's Hoad," the morality
play written by Miss Josephine Ham
mond and to be produced by the
women of Reed College at the Heilig

endless wealth of detail, every part of
which serves to brinsr out the main
theme of the play. The morality Is
highly significant in its teaching of
the essential sisterhood of women of
all countries and of all ages.
The play being in pageant form, the
women pass across the stage costumed
to show the women of the world they
represent. The famous women of his
tory have been called the Flame
Keepers because to them and their
achievements women the world over
have looked for inspiration. Jeptha's
daughter has a name sacred in history
because of her love. for her father.
Ruth Is remembered because of her love
for her mother.
Then we go to another land in an
other age and find Antigone, who dared
the wrath of the King and died be
cause she loved her brother. Alcestis
is on the roll of honor because she
loved her husband, and Brunhild be
cause she loved her sweetheart. St.
