Elk City, March 7, 1893.
Editor Lkadur: Perhaps a
line from this place would be of in
terest to the readers of the new pa
per. Elk City is quite an old town
having been located here at the
head of navigation as early as 1S66,
soon after the Yaquina Bay was
opened tip for settlement. At that
time Elk City was the largest town
on the bay, having special advant
ages for a thriving village. The
Big Elk and Yaquina river formed
a junction here the military wagon
road terminated nt this point and
the stage line connected with the
steam boat that conveyed passen
gers' to Newport, the popular sea
side resort of Oregon. These ad
vantages made Elk City a flourish
ing place for a n'tiniber of years.
The town was then composed of
two hotels, two dry goods stores,
blacksmith shop one livery stable,
one cabinet shop, one brick yard,
post office and a good district school.
But owing to a want of public spirit
in building up the town at the
proper time- it -went intft decline
and other points along the4ay took
the lead. Since the railroadAvas
puilt the wagon road has greatly
diminished, but Elk City has again
taken an air of progress ahd pros
perity and will at no distant day be
one of the best towns on the bay.
The town h now composed of one
good hotel, one store, postoffice and
a good public school. Of the old
settlers only one remains and that
is Mr. M. W. Simpson, who owns
a nice firm and passes his leisure
hours fishing for the beautiful trout
