A prominent number of the Cham
ber of Commerce yesterday in dis
cussing the dredge Chinook stated
that if it had been kept at work over
the bar continuously from the time "t
was first put in operation there the
State of Oregon would have been
spared the humiliation last year of
having to publish to the world that
the United States fleet could not en
ter the river.
"According to our pilots and to
'those who were best acquainted with
thedetaili at the time," continue J
this member, "a harrow dredge was
put on the bar about 25 years ago
and within a space of 10 weeks had
deepened a channel fully eight feet.
wide enough to permit the passage ot
a vessel, ine cninoon w pm
and operated but a short while and
that immediately after it was repaired
at heavy expense in San Francisco.
then it was taken off and it has not
been operated since.
"There will be a number of battle
ships sent to visit the World's Fair
at Seattle next summer and if this
Chinook could be put to work at the
present time I am confident that by
the first day of July a channel at
least 30 feet deeo at low water could
be made across the bar which is eight
fact deener than the channel in the
river to Portland- Of course it will
never be possible for large ships to
an no the river as far as Portland,
not within the lifetime of any people
iuw livinir. at least, but we will have
here, in Astoria a 40-foot channel
orobablv within a year. The Engi
neers' Department with Major Mc
Indoe at the head is co operating
with Astoria and the Chamber of
Commerce here to the end that the
Chinook may be put to work again
on the'bar within the shortest possi
We time. The $200,000 appropriation
for the repair and operation of that
dredire is now available and Majo.
Mclndoe has said that he would pre
pare the specifications for the repairs
ncssarv within a very snort wniie.
'Portland is to be commended tor
iti efforts to secure a channel from
that citv to Astoria as deep as the
channel from Astoria across the bar
to the sea but I doubt its ability to
accomplish such a commendable re
sult even with all of the taxable prop
erty of that municipality under its
control for tax raising purposes.
It is altogether likely that a tew
months more will see the wheat for
exnort comina down to Astoria to be
loaded on ships to go abroad for the
reason that big ships must be used in
the commerce of the Pacific and
such can't get to Portland. Portland
will always be a good city, however,
regardless of the fact that she is
about to lose her export and import
business. In fact, she has lost most
of it already as a comparison of the
imports and exports of the LoiuniDia
river with those of Puget Sound will
show. This postal card comparison
was recently made by the Astoria
Chamber of Commerce and has caus
ed astonishment throughout the
Northwest. It would seem now that
a great convention will have to be
called in Astoria within the very near
future to right this wrong. Whose
fault it is that the Columbia river has
been allow'ed to lose most of its trade
is very plainly set forth to every
close observer throughout the North
west. It is caused by certain business
influences at Portland, powerful mi
their small way. who are determined
that there shall be no deeper channel
from Portland to Astoria than there
frnm Astoria to the sea. When
Mr. Wheelwright was president of the
Chamber of Commerce a few years
ago he submitted to a public interview
in which he said that it was useless to
have 40 feet of water over the bar
-,a ?ft feet in the channel of
the river down to Astoria. But this
commercial crime against the State of
Orecron is being atoned for and ai
Portland is the biggest city from the
standpoint of trade naturally most ot
the atonement mus be made by her
business men. Such is their short
sightedness. "The Astoria Chamber of Com
merce is to be commended for hav
ing brought this matter before the
business interests of the Northwest
in such a .way that a remedy is be
ing found. The Rivers and Harbors
Committee in Washington and espec
ially Congressman Lorrimer who
made a personal trip here to examine
the jetty and to look into conditions

fully. Chairman Burton of the Rivers
