Tbe Jttty oi thr Columbia Bur.
From the Astorlau.
A pleaf.int half hour's ride on the
swifuure steamer Gin. Canty brings
one to the Fort Stevens wharf, around
which sand is form in 4 so fast as to r.eo
comitate another rxtension. Piled on
the side of thn railroad track oil which
runs the locomotivs "Tillamook,'1 are
huge bundles of hru.sh, spruco and
homlook poles tied in twenty foot
lengths and bound Jsecurely with withes
thu tops and branvhes being trimmed
in tho woods and hauled to the wharf
by ox'teAiilH. The rail track windn
along tho ln-ach in a southwesterly di
rection and then turns to the went, a
distance of 2,910 feet, past the machine
shops, a double track being laid a dis
tance of 2,910 feist, past thn machine
shops, the office and supply depot, the
track rising on a grade of one foot in
fivo hundred. At highwater mark the
building of the jutty proper be
gin. Four rows of piles are driven
every ten fcef, a space of five feet lie
ing left from the outsiilo to thn second
row, and a space of eight feet in the
middle, making the piling eighteen feet
in width from outside to outside. The
piles are fir, foriy-livo feet long, aver
aging eighteen inches in jiaiueter, and
are driven twenty one feet into thn
B'ind; the piles have been driven by
the hydraulic process, which in this in
stance has been invaluable as it is be
lieved they could not havo been driven
by the ordinary procenn. A three inch
rubber pipe is put down by the side- of
the pile as soon as placed in an upright
position in the frame and a jel of wa
ter forced through it; this cuts away
the sand and the pile sink down in the
sand by its own wtight The simple-
ncss and effectiveness of the operation
is manifest to the most casual observer.
After the pile has been sunk in this
way a few taps on the end from a huge
hammer settles and steadies the pile,
and in J;his wry 1,016 piles have been
driven. The work has gonn rapidly
on without a single accident, break or
mishap of any kind, and the money
expended bus been spent in an intelli
gent manner entirely satisfactory to
those in charge and productive of the
best possible result
Beginning at hih watef mark, 2,0 1 0
feet from the wharf, the work of plao
ing the mattresses commenced. The
bundles of fescines are first swung un
der the stringers of the track, lushed
together and bound and rebound, the
bundles lyiug in a direction transverse
to the jety, and when about four feet
of thickness is attained they are
dropped to the surface of the water.
Then smaller rock is dumped on them
till they sink; the rock is not of the
coarsest, weighing from 100 pounds to
a ton, so as not to pierce the matress,
till it is submerged; then rocks weigh
ing from two to three tons each are
dumped till the matress is covered to a
depth of four or five feet and by this
time another couple of lengths tf mat
tresses are ready to be sunk, and so
the work goes on. Thus far about
6,000 tons of rocks have been used.
On the north hide spurs of outlying
mattresses and masses of rock have
been placed as protection from the con
stant wash of tho water while the work
of putting in placo goes on. In this
way 1,010 feet of thn jetty have been
constructed, tho eno of the track being
now just 401)0 feet from the wharf and
eight feet higher than tho eastern ex
It is a fine Right to stand on the
stringers of the railroad bridge over
1,000 feet out in the ocean beyond
high water mark. Away out on the
spit to the west '.lie incoming tide
breaks in thundi-r and the long wates
curl in crested foam along the beach.
One huge wave beaten back aeain and
again reforms and comes directly tow
ard the piles. It rises and pressing
onward lifts its sparkling head of
crested white foam, in brilliant contrast
to the emerald swell beneath, and with
a mighty heave it hurls itself against
the jetty. A slight tremor is felt as
the wave breaks and rushes hissing
under one's fe-tt the foam rising in
spray and scattering in misty points as
the wave runs in and is lost on the

spit has been rapidly making out on the
north unci washing away on the
south, it now appearing us though the
water of tho ocean would soon reach
the little lake between Ft. Stevens
and Pt, Adams so long a ago made by
the closing up by the sand of the pres
ent line of beach.
With tho ocean heaving and tossing
under ths feet of the workmen, tho
tide coming and going and the great
waves rolling in it requires constant
care and a steady head on tho part of
the workmen, but they po ahead swing
ing the large piles into thn frame, and
when once made upright sinking them
to their homo with very little delay.
Last week a largn platform sixty-five
feet in length and fourteen feet in
width, has been constructed at thn end
of tile track. It swings on a turntable
and overhangs the water twenty-two
feet. Though so huge, it winds as eas
ily as a gate on its hinges, and is of
great convenience in allowing easy
placing of the piles. A stoam ham
mer is in operation at pns
ent. It works direct and is siippliid
from a pipe running from , thn engine
in tho rear. Above tho hammer is a
steam chest which by an ingenious ar
rangement of valves gives force to the
to the thirty five hundred pound ham.
mer to raise it, thn hammer dropping
on the head of the pile at the rato of
sixty blows a minute. After the first
hundred blows the head of the pile be
gins to smoke from tho intense heat
generated by tho impact of the ponder
ous blows and seems as though on fire,
all tho while settling slowly to its place.
The hydraulic process is used in con
nection with tho experimental work of
thn steam hammer.
The jetty is now heading about
northwest, the intention being to ex
tend it about throe and three quarter
miles to a point almost due south of
Cape Hancock. Major Eastwick, who
has had entire charge of the work from
its inoipiency, thinks that active oper
ations for thn season will ceaso about
tho 15th inst. Major Jones and Capt.
Powell have visited the work and ap
pear well jleaed with the swift and
satisfactory' manner in which it has
been prosecuted. Of the $100,000
appropriated by Congress at its last
session $85,000 has been spent. It is
within the limits of conservative state
ment to say that probably no similar
ainoant of government appropriation
has been more judiciously expended or
with better practical results. Work
was begun on April llth, and the six
months since then has Been thn entire
plant placed and the entire wcrk pushed
to a point that begins to show what
can be done and the usefulness of the
project when completed.
This work is one of national import
ance; it is second in magnitude and
the interests affected to no similar work
in the United States. It concerns
every resident of a scope of country
comprising nearly 400,000 square miles
of the fairest portion of our national
donain. It is a work that affects
everyone in Oregon, Washington and
Idaho. It is not of State or local im
portance to tho exclusion of larger in
terests. It is the direct concern of all
and should receive the aid that all can
give. 10 our nauonai legislature inn
people of this Northwest coast look for
continued aid to prosecute the great
work so well begun.
Cure For Piles.
Piles are frequently preceded by a sense of
weiuht in the back, loins and lower part of the
abdomen, causing the patient to suppose he has
some affection of the kidneys or neuhlxinnu
oriians. At times, symptoms of indigestion
are present, fluttileiicn, uneasiiiew of tne stom
