In every lino of development Port

are rapidly giving way to tho demands

In the Good Old Days the Pioneer Hotel of The Dalles Entertained All
Prominent Men Who Traveled Through the Upper River country;
Old Register Has Been Exhumed.
By Leroy Armstrong.
Did you ever stop at the Umatilla
house, in The Dalles, in war tlmes2 If
so, your name is in an old register of
that hotel for the years 1$82, 1863 and
part of 18(4, which recently came into
my - hands.
The hotel has lost some of the glory
of that olden day when transportation
was almost wholly by river, when the
Spray, and the Okanogan, the Nez Percd
Chief and the Oneonta plied between
The Dalles and the Impassable rapids
at the Cascades; but it is a big house
yet. . - .
The clerk doesn't wear diamonds in
his shirt front; as did his predecessor,
in the days when The Dallea waa a
station on the highway to the mines be
yond Boise, Idaho, when there was a
fort at Walla Walla, and when Yamhill
county was a bigger realm than some
states. And there may be lack of splen
dor in the dining room, and some
changes in the appearance of the sleep
ing apartments, but through all the
vein the bisr house his held Its old
name. And, there is a certain dignity in
. . .. .. .
its stoic reserve, its calm contempt of
thd modern, its mute protest against
the thundering trains that have helped
jio vastly In changing First street and
the landings.
Sent to the Borap Heap.
That old register is an interesting
book. And there are not many men of
early Oregon activities whose names
are omitted wholly from Its pages. It
is a scrap book now. ' Messages of pres
idents conceal many an entry.. There
are bits of vagrant poetry--newspaper
verse deserving preservation; and oc
casional directions as to the best meth
od of canning peaches.
Brlgham Young-, in the height of his
glory, was a guest at the Umatilla
House, December 19," 1862; and he wrote
after his name the statement that be
was "bound for Salt Lake."

Sory of two prunes gives striking object lesson in agriculture.
Two prunes from the Willamette val

Willamette Valley Irrigated Land com

tha value of Irrigation. .
The big prune was Irrigated, the small
one was not. The Increased yield repre
sents not more prunes to sell,- but bet
ter' prices, for big prunes sell at 714
cents a pound, : while the smaller ones
bring only b cents a sound, and this
difference in the terms of thousands of
pounds means much to net profits, the
growers say.

Judge William's name appears on
many pages. Oregon's grand old man
seems to have done a lucrative law bus

he became a power in politics. "John
H. Mitchell, Portland," is another name,

sure of a good room; and almost always
with" a supplemental "and guest," prov
ing popularity and the habit of making
friends. He was the same John II.
Mitchell who whatever befell him
became a senator of usefulness In Ore
gon. Once he left the notation, "gone
to Boise," indicating that legal busi
ness may have made some changes In
his plans.
Foreigners as Quests.
"Three Mexicans" is one entry In
the clerk's hand; and the trio was sent
to a room on the top floor. But there
are other foreigners, and of greater
distinction, as: "Contedo Castillotrne,
Major A. de Veccdy, and tw.o servants"
abundantly testifies. The count and
his friend, however, were forced to be"
content with one room though still a
very large room, on the second floor,
while the servant went to a less desir
able apartment at the top of the house.
And "Lord Brlngham, of Edlnburg,"
mingled with the American nobility.
There were many army officers, as
guests, for in that early flay a 16rt was
maintained at The Dalles, one at Walla
Walla, another at Boise, and Vancouver
contributed Its quota. And the sug
gestion of the war in the south is found
In the registry of "Sergeant Co. D,

Where s Bend, Oregon?
That's a question you hear on the streets of EVERY city and

vast area which for 50 years has been waiting the coming of tha
railways, and which tha Hill and Harriman railroad systems spied
out five years, ago, and aince then they have spent over TWENTY
MILLIONS of dollars constructing railroads up the Deschutes
Valley to reach BEND.
BEND is the geographical center of this area, larger than any .
THREE NEW ENGLAND STATES, rich in resources of Timber,
Farming Lands, Water Power, Grazing Lands, and climatic advan
tages, which, if supplied with railway facilities, would attract tba
people, develop the resources and pay dividends on the millions
invested. The railroads are .NOW almost completed, as the first
passenger train will arriwa at BEND within six weeks or less time.
