A TRIP TO THE ALSEA.
THK PROUlniVK AND KKK.TU.K TAM.KY 0
OI K KOITH.
On Monday evening of last week
the writer hereof boarded the west
bound train with a determination to
see the famed Alsea country .ind
get acquainted with its people and
view its resources. Stopping over
night at Newport, we were runted
out next morning bright e.irlv
to catch the mail stage on its reg
ular bi-weekly -trip-to the Alsea.
Crossing over the bay in a small
boat, we were soon buni'ied in the
stage wagon ait.l had our faces set
to southward along the solid sand
beach, which is kept beaten ;is
smooth and hard as a plank toad, by
the tireless waves of the broad Pa
cific. We can picture no finer or
more interesting drive than this
would be in fine weather, and even
with the wind in our faces and a
slight rain falling it was far from
disagreeable. A drive along the
beach of about twelve miles brought
us to the famous Seal Rock. This
iiajk is suualeu aooui a Halt mile
from the beach and is used by the
hair seals, or sea lions to rest and
sun themselves upon. At the time
we viewed the rock there were hun
dreds of these monster sea animals
lying lazily oh the rocks enjoying
themselves above the power of the
mighty waves that were dashing at
the base. At Seal Rock is located
the famous summer resort known
by that name and owned by Hon.
J. W. Brasfield. Here is erected a
fine hotel and numerous cottages
are scattered around for the benefit
of the hosts of summer visitors.
But more of Seal Rock . at another
Leaving the bluffs after about
a mile travel on them we again
strike the beach and proceed on
our way. After about a four mile
drive we round a point and the
famous Alsea Bay and valley bursts
upon our view. The view from
this entrance point'alone is worth
the trip to see. A short drive up
the beach brings us to the
TOWN OF STANFORD.
Here we find a well stocked store
of V, C. Shepard, who caters to the
wants of the people contiguous to
town. Here we had our first meal
on the ALsea, taking the same at
the hospitable house of Mr. and
Mrs. W. C. Monroe.
The town of Stanford consists of
about forty acres platted and is in
a sightly location. W. C. Shepard
is the principal owner of the town-
site. Mr. Shepard also enjoys the
distinction of being the only attor-
ney-at-law in' Lincoln county
There is also a cannery located -at
this point, but we believe, was not
operated last year.
About a half mile up the beach
from Stanford is located the post
office of Lutjens, which distributes
the mail for the north side people.
At this place A. II. Lutjens keeps
a well-stocked country store, and
also is postmaster. The stage,
mail and freight route from Yaqui
na Bay, to Alsea Bay has its head
quarters here, being ojerated by
Holgate & Sons. . At this point is
located the extensive salmon can
nery of Henry Nice. This can
nery is well fitted with all the latest
appliances for canning salmon and
is quite an extensive establishment.
Its output varies with the condition
of the salmon 'ran. The largest
pack ever made in a single season
by Mr.' Nice's cannery was 9,000
eases of foor dozen cans cadi, .and
the smallest pack was 4, coo case-..
This establishment is woitby of a
more exteti'del v.riteiip than our
present space permits.
This comprises all the business
on the north side of the Bay. Cross
ing to the south side we came to
the handsome liti'e
VILLAGE OF WALbl'OKT.
Waldport is the largest business
point on the Bay, It is located on
a point of land 1 dng between the
Bay and a slough branching out
from the same. The ground is low
but sandy and do;a not readily be-
come muddy. It is well sheltered
from the wind by hills and tall tim -

of the harlior tiin.,s about 14 feet
at low ti le. With a reasonable
amount ofexpetv'iture this could
be deepened to -.rj in1 22 feet. Alsea
Bay will make .1 tine land-locked
harbor with a good channel.
The resources of this country
are varied and plentiful. The prin
cipal products are lumber, fruit,
potatoes, bay, live stock and fish.
Of the limber much might be said.

farming and stock-raising find these
sources of industry very remunera
tive. The fishing, interests are ex
tensive anl (Uinn' the season time's"
are made j a i te lively on the Bay
by this industry. As a dairying
and fruit country ttie Alsea country
is hard to excel, and in these lines
of industry will find its t greatest
wealth. In the fruit industry
might be mentioned cranberry rais
ing, which' promises, to be quite
extensive on Alsea Bay. It has al
ready been tested and the product
is of a superior quality and the
In conclusion we would say that
the Alsea country is a magnificent
one in the way of undeveloped re
sources, and that when roads are
opened into its fertile valleys, and
the steel bands to a railway join it
to the highways of the great mar
kets of the world, the wheels of in
dustry will hum and many pleasant
homes will dot the hillsides which
are now covered with lofty firs or
cedars. Then, indeed, will this
country Idossom as a rose. '
The people -of this country are
extremely' hospitable and clever.
