Editor Ekterpuise: I would era e
th privilege of a little space in die
columns of your valuable paper to an
swer the many inquiries touching
Southern Oregon. This section of
country that is to Bay, that part of
the coast drained by the Umpqua, the
Coot, the Coquille and the Roijue
riven is but little known, and teems
to attra:t the attention at present of
The topography of this country is
diversified by mountains, hills and val
leys. The country is sparcely inhabi
ted, the towns small, and the settle
ments have poor inter communication,
requiring often a change of convey
ance by land or water in going a dis
tance of twenty miles. During the
years that uatitornia ana norwiern
Oregon have moved in the race of
progress with giant strides, Southern
Oregon has crept, infant-like, without
having tried or cared to assume the
firm and erect tearing of manhood.
When wo come to inquire into the
causes of this apparent apathy we
shall see nothing that will surprise, but
on the contrary, it will appear as
natural as placid waters in a still at
mosphere. For, many long years the
settler of the wilderness has been iso
lated from the rest of mankind.
Oceans, inaccessible rivers and im
passable mountain barriers have made
him contemp'ate his situation with
upine indifference, and to consider the
effort to make things otherwise than
they are far greater than the question
able benefits he might reap from a
more advanced state of civilization.
Social, political, educational questions
don't trouble him in the least. They
are thincs that have a name and
their name is vanity. Of far greater
importance to him is whether Satur
day or Sunday should be hallowed,
whelher baptism by sprinkling or im
mersion is the acceptable thing, w he til
er the Code or the Bible shculd be the
- law of the land. In his domestic
conomy he is a patriarch. He loves
Lis wife and hjs children; these are the
world to him; and, when they dip. he
peoples heaven with them. An honest
manj will not contract a debt which
he has reason to believe he cannot pay.
He will not ask for credit with dis
honest intentions. Surrounded as he
is by immense resources for the accu
mulation of wealth, he limits his ex
ertions to the tilling of a few acres;
keeps two or three cows and their in
crease; a dozen hens; some hogs. I
said "keep" no, they run wild in the
woods; ho looks for them with his gun
when they are wanted, and exchanges
the carcass for such commodities as he
may need at -the village store.
But the day is dawning when all
this will be a thing of the past. Al
ready the newly arrived immigrant is
usurping the territory of the earlier
settler. Land is being cleared; saw
mills and shipyards are to be met with
at convenient points; towns are laid
out to accommodate 50,000 inhabitants;
railroads are talked of one is survey
ed; river bars are receiving Govern
Kent appropriations, and San Fran
cisco capitalists are building steamers
of light draught in order to secure the
traffic of this vast region.
The land is of two distinct kinds
the hill land and the river bo" torn.
The hill land bears a growth of the
finest timber in the world. Timber is
inexhaustible. A quarter section will
show many million feet of timber in
the tree. Much of this timber is ac
cessible by waterway to the mill. It is
ot the most valuable kinds. There is
the fir, commonly called "Oregon pine,"
which for ship-building has no equal.
It is strong, fres from knots and dur
able. There is the cedar (white and
red), good for house building; also
pruce. This land, when cleared, is
w6rthless for agricultural purpose.
The stumps nearly cover the ground,
and, where the forest monarchs have
fallen by reason of old age, and tow
ering stature, they have upturned
mouuds of earth that make the surface
bs uneven as the ruins of an ancient
city. The soil, however, can be made
productive by a high state of cultiva
tion, but this is not thought worth the
labor at present.
The river bottoms are well adapted
to general farming. They aro com
paratively easily cleared. Here we
ee a growth of vine maple, ash and
myrtle. "When cleared and ditch
drains cut through it is the most pro
ductive land I have ever seen. It is
not even surpassed by the Missouri
bottoms. For grass it beats the world.
White clover and red top are indigen
ous. It will yield forty bushels and
upwards to the acre. As to potatoes
I dare not name the figure. Beef and
mutton are equal in flavor to that of
England. It is the habitat of poultry
hens, if fid, will lay all the year
round. Ducks and j;eese, of the do
mestic breeds, are right at home here.
As for fruit, iu good aeusnns, it can be
had, the buyer picking it, at a nomi
The climate of this section of Ore
gon resembles that of the whole north
ern coait it is healthful. Epidemics
are unknown. The prevalent moist
ure, however, is not favorable to per
sons subject to rheumatism or paraly
sis. It rains a good deal in Winter,
but not so muck-as is popularly be;
lieved. It is a warm and sti 1 rain,
and the number of sun shiny days in
Winter exceed the number of rainy
days. In my opinion, Summer is
more unpleasant than -Winter. The
sun frum May to October is never seen
in the eastern horizon. It rises jnvari
ably in a fog. which is only dispelled
by the sea breeze four hours after
sunrise. Then the sky assumes a se
rene blue, and the atmosphere is fresh,
cool and invigorating.
To those of mr friends asking the
question, "Shall I go therel-' I can
only answer according to my knowl
edge ot their mean?; their occupation
and their temperament. To the miner,
I would say, if you hare a job, stick to
it, for not everywhere on this mundane
jplicre will you find the wages' for la
bor that you do on the old Comstock
lode. The wages for labor in South
ern Oregon are low compared with the
Comstock standard. Coal miners get
$1 12 per ton extracted most of the
coal mines are shut down at present.
Mill hands get $2 to 2 50 per diem,
and board themselves "board is worth
$15 per month. Loggers at logging
camps get from $50 to 70 per month
and board. Shipwrights get 3 per
day. A mechanic's day is ten hours,
all others eleven hours. For farm
hands their is neither supply nor'de
mand. To the merchant I would say: If
you are doing well enough here bo con
tented with that. Mercantile business
is overdone everywhere. It is a
mania of the period for a man with
$2,000 or 53,000 capital to rush into
merchandising. Better, by far, to go
into stock, wheat, wool or butter mak
ing, for of these commodities one can
never glut the market. The river bot
tom lands alluded to above, unim
proved, can be purchased of second
hands at from 5 to 20 per acre, and
tracts can yet be found subject to
homestead entry. Rising with the
lark and by hard work and hard tack
one can, in a few years, tnakn himself
To the professional man let me say
that he should, in his trigrations, be
governed by the amount of brain he
posseses. Great money centers re
quire brain, and can pay for it. This
part of Oregon has but little money.
Nevertheless, a modicum of talent can
make a living just that and nothing
