OPEN THE LOCKS.
We published yesterday a communica
tion from the Washington special cor
respondent of the Oregouian in which
the writer scores Eaetern Oregon people
in general and Governor Pennover in
particular for writing letters to' the
members of the house committee on
rivers and harbors and the senate com
mittee on commerce anent the im
provements of the Columbia river. The
lalto atafoo fKjf wlton tlta fVkln iiiliia
river improvements were under consid
eration last Thursday, the chairman of
rivers ana harbors sprung a letter trom
Gov. Pennoyer which insinuated that
the people of Eastern Oregon would be
satisfied to have the work 6 top at the
Cascades and the government give its
entire attention to the portage around
the dalles and added that so tar aa the
delegation then could see it was
apparent that Pennoyer and his friends
' were attempting to influence the demo
cratic (hou8e not to do anything for
Oregon improvements, that political
capital may be made in the coming
election in this state. The Chbosiclk is
in no way concerned to defend Governor
Pennoyer, but a sense of justice com
pels us to say, the opinion of the delega
tion to the contrary notwithstanding,
that Eastern Oregon and an open river
have no truer or better friend than Gov
ernor Pennoyer. He has proved this in a
hundred ways from the time the move
ment for the Cascade portage was first
mooted in the legislature of 1891, till the
present hour. Men praise the bridge
that carried them over, and Eastern Ore
gon' owes this tribute to Governor Pen
noyer. Laying aside, however, all ques
believe the wishes of the people of this
section may be summed up as follows
We want, as the main thing, an early
completion of the .locks.- We feel as Mr,
Herman does when lie savs, "If the gov
ernment should now cease work upon
the improvements which have already
cost $1,500,000, and allow the masonry
and other work to crumble under the
fierce freshets of the Columbia river, it
would be nothing less than an outrage."
But if appropriations are to be doled out
and the work prolonged as they have
been in the past, them we want, as the
main thing for temporary relief, a port
age .railway around the dalles. If we
can only obtain a small appropriation
we would prefer that it be devoted to a
portage, but if a liberal appropriation
can be had, let it by all means be for the
Jocks and the state of Oregon can build
'the dalles portage itself. The opening
-of the locks alone would effect the whole
traffic of the country tributary to the
-'Columbia from Idaho to the sea. Even
the little portage at the Cascades effects
freights as far east as Baker City ; much
more if boats were able to sail up the
river without the cost of transfer of
freight at the Cascades. With an open
river to Portland there is no reason why
freight that now costs by rail from f 6
to 49 a ton, laid down in The Dalles,
should not be. carried, by water for a
dollar to a dollar and a half a ton. This
would be an important reduction even
if the goods had to be shipped from here
to eastern points by the Union Pacific,
but thia laj,ter ' contingency will never
arise, for just as sura as the general gov
ernment refuses to give a portage at the
dalles, and refuse ' it will beyond a
i uawnauie uuuik, tne State Will . Set
about the work and have it in operation
before the work at the locks cau be com
pleted, even at the utmost government
speed. Taking everything, therefore in
to consideration we believe that the ef
forts of the Oregon delegation should be
concentrated on securing an appropria
tion to complete the locks with all possi
ble speed. There is imminent danger
that if contentions arise over conflicting
opinions as to methods and measures
the session will pass and a congress
none to liberal at best will thereby find
a convenient excuse for giving ns noth
ing at all. . Let the government open the
Cascade locks and we can solve the boat
railway and portage, problem ourselves.
The city of Chicago has a mortgage in
debtedness on its buildings and town
lots greater by $16,000,000 than there is
on all the farms of Kansas. It exceeds
the mortgage indebtedness of the state
of Iowa by $41,000,000; yet there is not
a more prosperous city on' the American
continent than Chicago. It is plain
therefore that any attempt to prove the
bad condition of a community . or state
from the number or amount' of its
mortgage indebtedness -4s deceptive.
To draw any correct conclusion from
such data we must know the purpose for
which the debts were contracted. A
man without adequate means who goes
in debt for a farm or city lot, if he. has
acted wisely, is in a better condition
than he was before he contracted the
debt. Mortgages are evidences of ' ad
versity only when they . are contracted
and the money spent to repair a waning
It is proposed to change the name of
the state of Washington for some other
that would be less liable to be con
founded with the seat of government,
and the Seattle Telegraph protests, . that
if the name must be changed, instead
of going back to the heathen divinities
for a title, tribute should be levied on
the Chinook. What a resonant mouth
full "SkookamHlahee" would be, for ex
ample. "This might be translated 'the
boss state' " says the Telegraph, or if a
shorter name were wanted how would
"Saukalee" (Way Up) fill the bill? Let
us stick to our own classics."
