HISTORY OF. THE WORK.
The Telegram gives the following
trief history of the building of the
locks at the Cascades. The state
ments are in the main correct, though
Governor Moody, in his statement
yesterday evening gives the credit
of the first suggestion of the locks to
General Grant :
The proposition to build a canal
- around the obstructions in the Col
umbia river at the Cascades was first
proposed by Colonel Michier in 1875.
The following year the government
made the first appropiiation of $90,
000 for the commencement of work
on that important undertaking. The
first plans of the engineers contem
plated the construction of a timber
crib breakwater structure, 7200 feet
long, to, extend from the lower en
trance of the canal for a distance of
5000 feet. The lift to the upper
river through the canal was to be
overcome by two locks each 250 feet
by 46 feet in size and the guard
gates of each to be 54 feet high.
At the lime the first appropriation
was made by congress, Colonel, then
V. Major Wilson, of the United States
engineers, was in charge of govern-
' inent works in this district, With
h adquarters at Portland. Colonel
Wilson proposed that the locks be
placed on the Oregon side of the
river, and after a careful examina
tion by a board of engineers in 1877
Colonel Wilson's proposition -was ap
proved, the boaid recommending,
however, that the locks be increased
to 300 feet in length by 50 feet in
This board estimated the total
cost of overcoming the obstructions
at the Cascades to be $2,554,000.
The same year on the recommenda
tion of Colonel Wilson the width of
the locks was increased from 50 to
70 feet. . .
In the fall of 1878 Colonel Wilson
was succeeded by Colonel Gillespie,
and the active work of constructing
the canal at the cascades was begun,
the first contractors being Messrs.
Ball fc Piatt of New York, who or
$340,000 undertook to excavate. both
for the locks and a certain part of
In 1879 another board of engi-
neers was convened, which 'recom
mended an appropriation of $100,000
' be made for improving .the river
channel below the locks, which was
In October, 1881, Captain C.'F.
Powell was assigned as superintend
ing engineer in charge ot the work,
he being succeeded in 1888Nby Major
Handbury. In his first, annual re
port Major Handbury invited atten
tion to the meager appropriations
that had been made for the work
since its inceptionthe entire sum for
the twelve years being but $1,142,-
500, or an average -of $95,000 per
ye4r. During this year Major Hand
bury succeeded iu having the con
struction of the gates changed from
- wood to steel. By 1890 there had
been appropriated to the construction
of the Cascade locks $1,880,000, and
. it was estimated by- Major Hand
bury that an additional $1,745,000
would be necessary to complete the
In 1 892 the river and harbor act
appropriated $326,250 for the locks
and canal and a provision was made
for the awarding of a contract for the
completion of the enlire work. In
the Jatter part of the year this con
tract was awarded to Messrs. J. G.
and I. N. Day oCSan Franciscy, they
agreeing to complete the canal and
locks according to 'specifications for
$1,521,265. - . -
Since that time Contractor Day,
although perforce having their time
occupied at (he Cascades in the
greater measure, have proved them
selves valuable adjuncts to Portland's
prosperity and ' staunch citizens of
Oregon. Both in publicvand private
life, aside from the great work they
are now bringing to completion,
Messrs. Day have achieved promin
ence in this , state, and, in fact,
through the immensity of the work
undertaken by them, throughout the
Their contract provides for fur
nishmg all the material of every kind
and description required in the con
struction of the canal and all the
labor necessary for carrying the work
to a successful completion as per the
plans submitted by the engineer.
November 15, 1893, Major James
C. Post was ordered to the Pacific
coast to succeed Major Handbury as
engineer in charge of the, locks con
struction, arriving barely in time to
familiarize .himself with the work
and save the lesult of twenty j'ears'
labor with its attendant expenditures
of money from destruction through
