A Visitor's Opinion Of Oregon.
Ei qeni Citt, Oct 8th, Itws.
Ehitor El'uene Citt Guard:
One can hardly pick up a .rsr published
an where on this cat that does not have
something to say of the wonderful. In Cali
fornia it is either the climate, soil, fmit, im
mense yield of cereals, or townsites proclaimed
to the world under a double-header "Ho-m."
'I hese excitinif times are fast passing away in
that state, anil hmnoseekers are now hunting
omethiiiK more sulwtiiutial than climate and
dewrt lands at fabulous price. The writer is
a Califorttian who has been sojourning In this
beniitiful city of the upier WillametU for a
time, and is satisfied that Oregon Is fast com
ing to the front for her share of Eastern immi
gration, and feels fiee to express to the public
that home seekers will find the Willamette
valley the uarden it of the Pacifio Coast
The climatic advantages and productive mil of
this valley ara cow attracting a large portion
of the westbound travel, buyer of land for
homes are learning that hrtt they can secure
better lands for to tW per acre than they
can net in California for f 100 to fOO. Here
we have the best soil in the world at a yery
low figure, that cannot be bought five years
hence for less than 75 to 9100 er acre. The
tiniH will come ami that speedily wh.n thwte
lands will lie reganM as a lioiiaiiMi with divi
dend etpial to the palmiest days of the Corn
stock. Never in the history of Oregon hss
there been a briuliter or a more substantial
boom than at at the present time. Tourists
and home e kers are heading for this state,
anil every train brings a Urge delegation to
some point along the litis of the railroad, even
t'sbforiiians, who never let a good thing rscap.
tht-ui, are Iweotning quit numerous, and J idg
ing fnni the large puroh ses some of them
have made lately, they meau business. Esst
urn anil California capital Is being Invested all
ever the state and Lane county is receiving S
large share; she does not expeot a wildcat
Immuu. but healthful and permanent growth.
Lane county has a large area of the beat lands
in the state. Nature has dona a great deal for
her; she has within her borders, sea coast,
mountain ranges, grstimt Wild, grain, fruit anil
hop lauds, fine forests of timber, and excellent
water Mwer. lie'r rivers and hrtsiks ire num
erous with never tailing, clear, cold water, ' fed
from the glaciers of the Cascades and the
(.'oast ratiite. Fish are very plentiful In the
streams and deer, elk and wild fowl abound in
the forest. 1 he cereal crop this year was bt
yond the average and the acreage larger than
tormerly. Grain is all stored either in barns or
warehouses in excellent condition. The hon
crop is large anil mostly sold or contracted at
prices ranvtiiK I mm 12 to 13 cents. The ad
vent of railroads has given OreKon closer Com
mercial liitero-nirse with the markets of the
world. No, the OreKon fanner teals mors
eucouraged than formerly, when the P. S. S.
1 o. took their wheat for freight charge and
failed to return the sacks. Under the iron
heel of former freight moiioHiies the Oregon
farmer retrograded both financially and other
wise, many became bankrupt ami the state at
Uik vegetated altuiir with aeemlng Indiffer
ence. Dut under the r.ew order of the iron
horse a chaim Is tukiux place. The "moss
backs" are fast itiving way to the enervetiu
Yankee. Ere ionir the squatter cabin of ulo-
neer days will Iw replaced with more substan
lial etlihces. ami those who fail to possess
themselves with some of the chean lauds of tie
day, will s -on lose the itoltlen opportunity.
till recently it was but little known East that
other fruits than the aimle itrew to perfection
north of the Slsklvous. Rut since the com
pletion of the N. P. Railroad, Oregon fruits
nave taken tneir place In the oominercial world
at figures over all ot uiimtitors, ami It only re
quires further competition In freights to secure
Hie trim grower hautlsome profits, in quauti
ty, quality, size ami flavor, the Oregon staple
iruiu exuiw me admiration ot an visitors.
Eastern people express astonishment and de
clare them wonderful. I have often heard ex
pressions ef admiration over certain stiecl
meiis men tinned. Such praise falls to do jus
tice. All varieties of cultured fruits reach the
nine perfection nowhere els attained. I find
that all cultivated orchards are overlmnlened
with choice fruit and naturally show the best
results. Fruit raising is destined to be the
leatling Industry of the Willamette valley; It
is the home of the prune, plum, (tear, apple,
cii-rry ami small trills. 1 tie peach ami apri
cot do finely along the foothills both east and
west ol the valley, fruit never fails here; If
cultivated they grow in great profusion. It Is
useless to sMak of single branches or clusters,
when every well cultivated orchard In the val
ley is a mass ot fruit ami every tree bristling
with poles trying to hold up the overburdened
Hinds. Oregon diws not touch the range of
emi'tmpicai fruits, but she offers a very
healthful anil certain home for the products
f 1 he temperate (one, such fruits are not ex
. elled in any clime. Oregon offers better in
ducements to the homes eker than elsewhere
which cannot fail to draw the liest agricultur
al citizens of the East, under whisie manage
ment she will mmu take her place on a more
healthful foundation than from which Califor
nia towers. Eugene, the county seat of I.an
county, I find to be a beautiful little city sit
uated 011 the bank of the Willamette river
with a Hipulatlon of oer 3000 Inhabitants.
The location is excellent, designed by nature
as a site for a city, anil isiexessing superior
natural advantages for health and attractive
ness. She has the State University, ami an
observatory under course of construction by
contract to be completed this Fall. The city
is lighted by electricity, enjoys fine water
worts and water power, lire companies, fine
school and church facilities. The citizens are
mostly G'i serving and enernttlc, Promoting
the educational and moral worth of their chif
dren. In fact, the murals of Eugene are such
that the most select would not hesitate to lo
cate a future home. With the advantage,
every d tv presenting themrelvM, is it not safe
to predict that Oregon has before her a bright

though of th latter the narrator sr not

was raging in that quarter. During th af

A Relic of Pioneer Days.
Jnnetlon City Pilot, Oct 5.1
Messrs. W. G Pickett sud R. P. Caldwell
of this city, who have just returned from
Kitsou's Spring, on the middle folk of the
Willamette, where tbey have been taking an
outing of a tew weeks, report a circumstance
which, we think, will b of interest to all,
and particularly will it be so to those now
old people who were the pioneer of 'C3.
It ia this: About two weeks ago a Mr.
Wm. Hill, by accident, happened to look
iuto a large hollow tree, and to his surprise
saw standing In it a guu. which there is
svery reason to believe wa left tbere by
mistake or otherwise by come of th immi
grants ot those early day; probably bv some
of that train that crossed the Cascades by
tbe middle fork route, sud whose hardships
and privations were most terrible. It may
be that soma of those people still living in
this region will remember something about
it, snd it may be that ths owner is still liv
ing. It was found at tbs sldo of what is said to
b tb old immigrant road, about thirty
miles this side of the summit of the Cascades.
It was of th old flint lock kind and its
mountings were ol brass, snd of the kind the
people of forty years ago so much admired,
when Mr. Hill attempted to lift it the stock
gave way at the grip, having become rotten.
The ramrod had all rotted away except about
three or .'our inches, which still remained in
its po-ition. The stock is supposed to be of
maple or walnut, and the ramrod ol hickory
or whit oak.
There was an Incident occurred at about
tbe time tbe gun must have been lost, that
must still be fresh in the memory of the pio
neers (list cross d tbe cascades by that route,
snd which occurred within one lmudr d feet
of where the gun was found. We refer to
tb drowning of a Mrs, Patty who waa one
of that train that suffered so much in rcacb
ing tbis oonntry.
A traveling man, stopping st tbe Lee
House, Campbellsburg, Iud., on learning
that s Isdy in the village was suffering terri
bly with cramp colic, gave the landlady a
bottle of medicine, which he bad with him
and requested her to take it to the sick woman.
The medicine relieved her promptly and she
believes saved her life. It wss Chamber

Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar
