The Chronicle is the Only Paper in
The Dalles that Receives the Associated
LITTLE INSIDJi HISTORY.
Today for the first time in her history,
"lie Dulles haa connection with Portland,
for freight and passenger traffic by a
portage railway and an independent line
of steamers. While a few visionaries in
Portland and elsewhere bave been figur
ing on giant schemes for opening the
Columbia river that involve an expendi
ture of from two to five million dollars
the little town at the head of navigation
on the middle river has gone quietly to
-work and practically solved the question
of an open river for hereelf. It is only
another illustration of the adage, Heaven
helps those who help themselves.
Henceforth let no man dare to say there
is no enterprise in The Dalles. The very
men who have been denounced a hund
red times, by a disgruntled local sheet,
as most-backs and Silurians, are the very
men to whom we owe the fact that we
have an open river and the highest honor
that can be given them is the attestation
that they have put $50,000 in an enter
prise from which they never expect to
receive a dollar of direct benefit.
The initiative in this movement, as
the Telegram of last Monday says was
taken by The Dalles merchants when
they, through Senator George Watkins,
introduced a bill to provide for a portage
way at the Cascades. The bill made an
appropriation of $60,000 to be used in
constructing and maintaining a portage
rond from the upper to the lower land
ing. At the previous session of the leg
islature a similar bill was introduced and
promptly killed; but two years had
made u wondrous change in the senti
ment of members and the well known
favor with which Governor Pennoyer
regarded it had much to do in influenc
ing members of his own party in sup
porting it. The result was an agreeable
surprise to the friends and advocates of
the measure, as the bill passed both
houses, by a handsome majority. The
navigation company was soon organized
; with a capital stock of f 50,000. Port
land was asked to subscribe $10,000, but
she contented herself with the paltry
sum of $2,400. All the rest has been
raised at home. As the Telegram truth
fully remarks, "The manner in which
Portland dealt with this company forms
chapter in her history which will in
time be read with shame. The gentle
men at the head of the company were
told by Portland merchants that this
city (Portland) would attend to the river
between Portland and the Cascades.
That The Dalles should put on a boat
from there to the Cascades, and Portland
would attend to the rest .With this as
surance they went ahead and let con
tracts for the steamer Regulator, to cost
$30,000. Portland was to put at least as
much into a boat at this end. Time was
was flying and The Dalles people wanted
to know what this city was going to do.
About this time the $5,000,000 scheme
was on hand. They, were staved off.
Portland would open up the entire river.
'The scheme came to naught and is a
dead issue today." , The Dalles then
raised $40,000 and 'wanted Portland to
raise $10,000 more. A committee was
appointed by the chamber . of commerce
to make up this amount. Mr. .A. S.
McAIister, who was pushing the matter
on the part of The Balles, undertook,
while in town, to raise some of the
money. In a few days be had $2,400r
The chamber of commerce committee
did not raise a cent. This $2,400 is all
Portland has in The Dalles, Portland A
Astoria Navigation company.5' These
facts are not new to the Chronicle,
though we have hot, hitherto, supposed
that any benefit would arise from parad
ing them before the public. The $2,400
was headed by W. S, Ladd who, gener
ously, as The Dalles directors , then
thought and still think, put down his
name for $500. Nineteen persons sub-
scribing $100 each, made up the remain-
der. -These are, the cold facts and our
readers may draw what conclusions they
please. But in view of what has been
accomplished, at a time- when there was
a remarkable stringency in the money
market, we can only say that the coun
try $ributary to The Dalle owes a debt
of gratitude to the stock-holders of The
Dalliia, Portland and Astoria Navigation
company that can only be repaid by n
. hearty support of the new line of trans

when a woman listens with patience to
a man's talk .. 7 about 'himself. " Woman
flatters man on 'the 'qualities by which
she enslaves him. A- woman never tells
a man that his will is of iron, save when
she is bending it to her own uses. Some
are attracted by the simplicity of a char
acter; out to many the difficulty of un
derstanding a character constitutes its
greatest, perhaps its only, charm, so

they throw it aside as of no more inter

incidentally the fact that . he had that
