To the Editor
"I notice the Oregonian has broken
out again with an editorial 'A Lesson
in River Porta. and to bolster up the
lesson, coes away back to the times
of the Roman Empire, when the Ro
mans in their galleys pulled up the river
Thames to the City of London, and
entrenched themselves in what was
then a trading center and is now the
capital city of England.
"The editor get down his 'Statistics
of Trade,' and gives an account of the
imports and exports of London. Liver
pool, New York, Hamburg, Antwerp,
Marseilles, Calcutta and Bom hay and
because Liverpool has been increasing
in shipping faster than London, there
fore London is planning to provide
accommodation for docking nuxlern
steamers, etc., etc., (all of which, of
course, i very interesting and Inst rue
tive to students of ancient and mod
era history, and suggests to the
thoughtful reader the reasons why, and
how centers of population were former-
"This was evidently not the reason
for writing the editorial, however, as
appears from the concluding few line.
in which he advlei his readers, that
the Columbia river bar. is the only se
rious drawback to Portland, as a sea
port, and makes light of the matter
of dredging the 100 miles of river from
Astoria to Portland.
"Ships are loaded only to the depth
that is safe on the bar, 24 op 25 feet.
Up and down the river, however, be-
tween Astoria and Portland, they could
be loaded deeper than that, ete.. etc.

ago I saw a Teasel loading the lat of
her cargo in Astoria, from a lighter
towed down from Portlandand again.
very shortly aco. a large steamer
bumped so hard on the bottom, coming
down the river from, Portland, thnt the
captain would not go to sea until an
examination by a diver, and report by
experts a to her condition and sea
worthiness were had. I would respect
fully suggest to the Oregonian that
they mHzzle the man who writes thH
class of articles, and that he be given
an assignment on the farmers' col
umn, and tell them to the hop-pickers,
not to old sailors. I fail to see the
benefit all such stuff is likely to do
to Portland, or the Columbia river;
they remind me of the boy, whistling
as he was going through the graveyard,
to keep his courage up. 'Cut it out,'
Mr. Oregonian, and get down to "brass
tucks'; as one of yoiir citizens said
lately, in regard to some such matter.
"You are not doing justice to yourself
nor to the City of Portland, for the
reason, that you know better and a very
large majority of your citizens do not
know, and take what you say as be
ing so, and are thereby lulled into a
false security; while the shipping and
commerce that could, by concentrated
and well directed efforts, be held on the
river, and increased, is slipping away,

had its last presentation in this city
