Following ia an extract taken
from an article in last week's News.
licixirter: "The pioplc of Newport
are to bo congratulated upon thei
prompt and eflictive refused to be
roped into a "wildcat scheme" to
boom sonicbodys sawmill property
at the expense of tlujir own and
their grand childrcns childrens
pocket books. " Will Mr. Matthews
kindly explain what iflictive re
fused" means. This is a new term
to us, also eflictive. is a new word.
We have taken it up with high
juithority and the latest decision to
date, is, that it means to go back
nn your word nr brcik n lr.r"rin
Now we realize the folly of trying
to argue the matter with a ninny
like the editor ofjhe News-Reporter
has proven himself to be, but,
for the benefit of those who do not
know the facts of the matter, we
will outline them in brief. Here
are the facts: Some of the leading
citizens -of Toledo conceived the
idea of forming the county into a
port district and improving the
rivers and bays, thereby opening
them up to navigation. A meeting
was cidled and the matter discuss jd
and it met with unanimous favor.
Another meeting was held at Elk
City and it met with favor there.
They said we will think t he matter
over, come back again in two weeks
and we will give you our decision.
Meetings were held at Eddyville
and Waldport in mean time and
while these people were not enthusi
astic over the matter, yet they said
we ore open to conviction." . But
while Toledo, in gosd faith, is going
ahead and holding these meetings,
what does Newport do? It says
' vp will just block this scheme which
o.1. i i mted at Toledo and which
will give the other parts of the
country a chance to givnv. So they
fc'ct up a petition creating the port
of Newport. And mind you, this
vas done without waiting to meet
with the rest of the county as they
had promised to. do. A majority
of the people of Newport are dis
gusted at the sneaking manner in
which a few of her citizens acted,
also the News-Reporter for uphold
ing such methods. This is shown by
the last week's I,haieu which was
written by one of Newport's leading

indeed. Starting from the wharf
at Toledo the water averaged about
14 feet in depth until the bar mid
way between the mouth of the
slough and Altree's mill, where the
shallowest water was A feet with
a mud bottom. From this bar to '
Frarj '. V40 water is from 14 to 30,
feet e'ecp. Here, on this bar the
water is 8 feet deep, the bar is
short and is composed of mud.
Continuing from here on down the !
bay the water is from 14 to 24 feet
deep until Rocky Print is reached.
On the bar at Rocky Point the
water is again orly 8 feet deep, also
mud bottom. Now, these measure
ments being taken at low tide,
gives a depth of 15 feet of water on
tv o of these Intra on. a half t ide,
and liyi feet on the bar just below
town.. On the large liar supposed
to be situated at Mill Four there
was found to lie 14 feet of water at
low tide. When this one- bar just
bulovv town is removed tiny boat
that can come in over the bar at
the mouth of the bay, can come up
to Toledo. Between here and Elk
City them are only two bars that
need fixing, and then boats can go
onto Elk City to load.
