while at the Capitol, presented
aflidavits and documents to Gov.
Pennoycr, from settlers of Har

Through the courtesy of Mr.
Win. Luce, we have heen present
ed with a copy of the "City

nublished here awav back in 18G9,
edited by R. II. J." Comer, and
published semi-occasionally, and

P.iit with all the changes that
have taken place in the county,
socially and otherwise, there is
a remarkable similarity in the
prices of the necessaries and lux
uries of life of to-day and of that
time. Then everything had to
come bv slow freight and by way
of The Dalles. The following is
a comparison of a few articles:

Greenbacks were worth only

Gold dust was $1-1 and $1(5.75

raise, but most everything else is
just the same tis when freight
from The Dalles was from 0 to 10

Sparks ruled that widows whose
husbands died on their way to ie

that orphans whose parents died i

entitled to a donation.
