THE OREGON SENTINEL
Wednesday, : : Juno 4 1879
I The subject of this stretch was born
in .Bedford County, Pennsylvania, in
1819. When nine years of age he ac-
'companied his parents to Ohio, -whither
they removed, and before attaining
his majority he learned the mill-vrights.
trade, to which he devoted himself for
several years. In the spring of 1850
he started for California, where he ar
rived the following Fall. He engaged
in mining in Coloma County, assisting
in damming the middle fort of the
American river. He left GreenTrood
valley in the spring of 1851, and came
to Yreka, then known as Shasta, and
ran one eryfcbe pitman of an 'Arm-
bin saw mui, ueuer kuuhu us u.
whipsaw, and sold lumber at $350 per
thousand. JTrom Yreka he came to
the site where Ashland is nov located,
and in company with Jas. Emery, Jas.
A Cardwell and Dowd Hurley built a
saw mill and sold lumber for 80 per
thousand at the mill. The first lum
ber used in the construction of a build
ing in Jacksonville was sawed at this
mill by Mr. Emery. In 1854 he as
sociated himself with A D. Helnian,
J.- B. Emery and Morris and built
.the Ashland flouring mill. His wife,
whose maiden name was Sophia Hoov
er, and to whom he was married in
Ohio, in 1841, remained in that state
until 1853, when she joined her hus
band in Ashland, and they added to
their other business that of hotel keep
ing. They continued in business at
that place for several years, when they
sold" out and removed to Eagle Point,
and Mr. Emery built and owned the
fine flouring mill at that place till
last August, when he sold
out and engaged in merchan
dising, which business he is now suc
cessfully conducting. It will be seen
that Mr. Emery is a true representa
tive of the American pioneer, a race
who have done more to advance the
best interests of this government than
all the political huxters and shoddy ar
istocrats that have followed in their
track, from the first settlement of
VW"CTppiicics jur. x-mery
is a Republican from principle, and
thotighneither demonstrative nor ambi
tious of prominence, he is at all prop
er times ready to defend his political
tenets and give a reason for the faith
that is in him. He is a consistent
member of the Christian Church, an
honorable gentleman in his dealings
with all whom he is brought in con
tact, and hence universally respected

We arc glad to -learn that the good
people of our neighboring town have
at last decided to re-open the Academy

The management of the institution

A. G. Bockfellow, Clark Taylor, Jacob
Wagner, John Walker, W. H. Atkin

are sufficient to inspire confidence in

and an educator well known in Oregon
and California, to accept the position
of President of the institution which is
styled, "The Ashland College and Nor
mal School," and will confer regular
degrees in each of the courses, classical,
normal and commercial. The Board
nre exceedingly fortunate in being able
to secure for the Presidency of the col
lege a gentleman whose ability, charac
ter and attainments render him so em
inently qualified for the position, and
we feel assured that success in this
promising field for a young college
would bo attained by none more readi
N. ly than by him. A full corps of com
petent assistants will support the
"President, and in due time the regu
lar announcement of the opening of
the college will appear, with such infor
mation as may be desired by those who
may contemplate availing themselves
of its advantages.

gate, is ueing put in fine condition for
BOAB TO CBESCEXT CITr.
From Mr. L. F. Cooper, who has
just been taking the levels of the new
proposed route from Crescent City to
Waldo, we gather some information
that will be of interest to the people
of Jackson and Josephine counties. It
was discovered many years since, when
too late, that the present wagon road
between Waldo and the coast had been
improperly located, and that instead of
laying it in the lowest passes it had been
run over the highest mountain to ac
comodate interested parties who had
secured ranches along the line. The
road, although rough and over very
heavy grade, was used with profit by
our freighters, but on the completion
of the railroad to Roseburg the use of
this road was nearly discontinued. It
has now been ascertained that there is
anatural pass actuallynineteen hundred
feet lower than the highest point on
the old road, and through which a wag
on road or narrow gauge railroad could
be easily constructed. This route is
by way of Gasquet's, up the middle fork
of Smith river, to the divide at the
head of Elk creek, and down Elk creek
to Waldo. Snow at the highest point
on this route rarely falls over a foot in
depth, and It could be as safely trav
eled during the Winter months. The
distance from Crescent city to Jackson
ville is one hundred and twenty-six
miles, and when the immense resources
of Jackson and Josephine counties are
considered we cannont impress too
strongly on our people the absolute ne
cessity of the very shortest route by
tide water. This i3 the only route by
which we can rearh the sea with our
products, and our people will soon re
alize that there is an inflexible law
bringing poverty -to us if we can not
exchange the product of industry for
those necessities which we can noi
produce ourselves. We intend to con
tinue the agitation of this subject, but
those interested must remember that
we only can suggest while it is the du
ty of others to act if they would help
themselves. Should we succeed in
procuring the selection- of Crescent
City as the harbor of refuge there is
not the slightest doubt but that we
will have railroad communication with,
that point within two ypsrs. "If we
do not sucaatfpuly hope is a new

Trjlus It Again.
The managers of the Land Company
now holding the fraudulent grant of
the Oregon Central Military Road Co.
are making another effort in Congress
to obtain a valuable gift of land with
out any consideration whatever. This
infamous swindle on the people will
never be consummated without another
effort on our part to prevent it, and
a e hope the press of Oregon will be
true to popular interests and assist in
its defeat We need not again
write the history of this fraud. It
would .reflect .no credit on certain par
ties in this State, the original projec
tors of the scheme, and it is already
well known as a bare-faced imposition
on Congress, and a piece of shameless
robbery. It is but a short time since
one of the original stock holders con
fessed to us that no road was ever con
structed as required by the terms of
the grant, and he added very plainly
that the original company thought it
cheaper to buy Gov. Woods' certificate
than to build a road. Now the as
signees of the original thieves, for they
are no better, apply to Congress for a
floating grant of one hundred and thir
ty thousand acres to indemnify them
for land absorbed by the Klamath In
dian reservation, located prior to the
survey pf the pretended road. The
public- of course understand that this
scrip may be laid on vacant government
lands in any of the Territories, the
bill now before Congress being the
same as that amended by Senator
x'litchell, -and providing that lieu land
cannot be selected within this State.
It makes no difference who is to be
robbed. The company has no equita
ble claim, and Congress might just as
well rob the people of Oregon as those
of Idaho or Washington Territories to
enrich a company of land grabbers.
We protest again unequivocally against
this steal, and will watch the course of
Senators Grover and Slater and see if
they dare support the measure.

mine, situated on Grave Creek, durin"

A XE1T ADVOCATE.
The California and Oregon military
wagon road land company of capitalists
comprising John Boggs of Colusa, a
noted land speculator, and some nine
teen others, have secured the services
of McGowan, a Michigan Congressman,
in place of Luttrell, whose term has ex
pired, with his prospects certain of nev
er being returned. This company is
working hard to obtain lieu lands for
the Klamath Reservation, without
completing the road as required, and
Congress should never grant scrip to
float their claim on other lands until
the road is completed according to
agreement Tins-land grabbing com
pany purchased the land grant for a
mere song, and only pay taxes on an
assessment of 40 cents an acre for land
equally as good as settlers in the vicin
ity are assessed at 5 to 15 an acre.
The new bill introduced by McGowan
provides that the scrip can bo located
in any of the Territories, in, ylnne of
Oregon, as in the Luttrell bill, which
first allowed the covering of vacant
land in California also, and which was
condemned by our late constitutional
convention. The new bill is now in the
hands of the Committee on Public
Lands, and although it exempts Cali
fornia and Oregon from the clutches of
the John Boggs squad of land grab
bers in this State, who so vigorously
opposed our new constitution, it should
be defeated as a fraud in obtaining
land they are not justly entitled to.
The very fact of backing down from
claiming land in California, and again
in Oregon, is very good evidence that
an examination of their road will show
tbem not entitled to over 300,000 acres
already obtained from the Government
through the misrepresentations of Gov
ernors of Oregon who falsely certified
to the completion of the road, or upon
the say so of men hired by the compa
ny to so report The former bill passed
.both Houses of Congress, but was pock
eted along with several other bills by
the President. We earnestly hope if
it succeds again that Hayes will show
his good sense by vetoing the scheme or
pocketing the bill as before. Yreka
