Irrigation projects, dredging nnd placer mining operations, and devel opment along other Hues based upon tho iiso of water from tho Iloguc, Hint bnvo filled the peoplo or the up per rlvor districts with Joy and hopo, spoil another story for the rcnldonts of Gold Deacb. Hero is ie way the Gold Doach Reporter, undur the cap tion 'Will tho Roguo Go Dry?' sums up the situation: " 'Old residents of this section will remember the times In enrly dnys when small trading schooners coinlni: Into Roguo Rlvor could nnvlgnto to Dagnell's iorry, four miles up Roguo rlvor, with permanent channels and good wnter in tbo lower river. Later tlio lnrge nmount of plncer mining In the Illinois rlvor nnd nlong uppo" Rogue river plnced largo amounts or gravel In tbo beds of llieco streams which tho high wntor of each suc ceeding winter kept working further and further down tho stream until when thio big flood of February, 1S90. had subsided nothing of n portnnnont channel was left In Rogue River from tho Illinois down to tho mouth. Flats and fnrms woro wnsbed cwny, the rlvor, formerly confined In chnnnols. spread from hillside to hillside, leav ing bars of grnvol; oven Islands In tbo lower rlvor woro washed nwny lonvlng only fields of gravel, which shifted more or less with changlnp winter floods. All tho tailings of the uppor mines camo down, and the rlvor bed has boon filled, leaving only gravel bars, small stretches of deep wntor, nnd stoop riffles to confront tbo navigators of today along tbo up per river. This condition has been especially apparent when tho low wator or lato summor mado naviga tion or tbo numerous riffles difficult. Tlio houtmon of tho, .river havo art- ' Justed thomsolvcs to th'o clrcum- stances iib well as possible, construct ing boats especially suitable to ovor co mo tho obstacles, and for years past navigation by gnsollno boats ha? boon stcndlly conducted for 40 miles up, tbo mall to tho mouth of tho Illin ois, 30 miles up, bolng regularly car ried Hint way. " 'Two Bummers ngo, bowovor, n now difficulty confronted tho liontmen In tbo Rumor time. Tito river sud denly fell sovornl Inches, sometimes nearly a foot, and would again swell, only to no down again, keeping this up each day. This was a puzzler for a wlillo, but was soon traced to Its Bourco irrigation system In the Roguo Rlvor valley tnklng out the wator. Last mmimer this condition was especially notlceahlo, and the mall Carrier had good occasions to oral miles thin side of tho Illinois and take tho mall through by other means. " 'This summer the conditions promlso to bo oven more severe on tho boatmen, owing to the fact that Irrigation systems of largo size are contemplated that will take most ot the water from the Roguo River.' "And then the fears of tho lower river peoplo aro fexl upon tho stories of tho plans of Irrigation and for dredging nB recounted previously hi tho columns of tbo Courier, nnd the Roporter nightmare closes with the following paragraph: " 'The facts auger 111 for naviga tion facilities on lower Rogue rlvor. And as though tho menace wns not sufficient from this source large dredging operations nro carried on at various points along the rlvor, put tug more tailings in the stream, to bo brought down by each successive wlntor flood. Ono such enterprise about to bo Inaugurated wo mention ed In Inst week's Reporter, wherein ono tract of 2S0 acres Is to ho torn looso and washed down. Tho time hns conio when sonio steps should be taken to protect tho Industries of the lower Roguo river section and the numerous Bottlers nlong tbo rlvor who dopond upon navigation of the river for securing their supplies nnd mar kotlug their products.'
