WHAT IT MEANS.
It is too soon after the removal
of obstructions to navigation at the
Cascades to measure the benefits to
be derived therefrom. It is too soon
to yet measure the distance or name
the territory that will be benefited in
greater or less degree by the com
pletion of this great work. The
Dalles will of course,' from its posi
tion at the head of navigation, and
from the fact that it is also the only
Eastern Oregon point on that' part of
the Columbia now open to tide water,
which is also in communication with
any large area of country, receive
more substantial benefits than any
other point. Heretofore the coun
try lying south of us has re
ceived its supplies from this point to
the distance of 200 and 250 miles.
Klickitat county, "Washington, to the
north, Crook, Lake and Grant to the
south, have received a large portion
of their supplies here and shipped
from here a large portion of their
npn iir.ra QKAmn. ,1 if A
counties have dealt with us largely
That the area of our trade is to be
increased cannot be doubted. The
completion of the work at the Cas
cades has made The Dalles a com
petitive point, and hereafter freight
rates from the East will not be great
er to this point than to Portland,
Seattle or Tacoma. What does this
mean ? It means that the wholesale
merchant who desires can locate here
and supply the rich agricultural and
stock country tributary to this point
much more cheaply than from any
other. It means that The Dalles can,
as a commercial centr, give better
rates on merchandise to points east
of us along the O. R. & N. than Port
land or any other place. It means
that the area of country tributary to
The Dalles will be doubled, because
Portland wholesale prices can be
met here. It means the cheapest
possible freight rates on all products
of the country, seeking market, and
on all merchandise imported. It
means unexampled business prosper
ity for The Dalles, and its speedily
taking its place as a new and im
portant business center.
It means more for The Dalles
than for any other place; but it
means a great deal for a great many
other points. Wasco and Klickitat
counties ship yearly 1,500,000 bush
ete of wheat, and for every bushel
the farmer will now receive from 5
to 8 cents more than he otherwise
would. Sherman county ships from
1,000,000 to 1,500,000 bushels of
wheat, and on this vast amount from
3 to 5 cents a bushel will be added
to what would otherwise be the
price. This means that $150,000 to
$200,000 will be left yearly with the
farmers that otherwise they would
not have received. Not only this,
but the enhanced price will cause an
increase in the acreage that will add
considerable to the above sums.
The Dalles has shipped usually
from 5,000,000 to 6,000,000 pounds
of wool yearly, and while the riyer
competition heretofore has done won
ders towards giving us cheap freight
rates; it is safe to say that they will
be yet further reduced. Our sheep
owners will gain at least a cent a
pound, or will at any rate be able to
maintain the present low freight
rates, if indeed, they do not some
what improve on them. This mekns
lk tuis inuusiry aione ou,uuu, and
in the country tributary to The
Dalles nearly double that sum. It
puts us in shape to offer such prices
for wool that Whether it is brought
here or not, the "grower will get the
benefit 'of our prices, since they will
justify him in hauling it here if bet
ter rates are not offered him than be
has heretofore been able to com
mand. All this section will be able to
compete with, down-river points for
the Portland market in vegetables
and small fruits, and this is by no
means a small matter. Our fruit in
dustries will be largely stimulated,
and more than all, as business begets
business, our population will rapidiy
increase, giving our farmers a large
and profitable home market.
With all these advantages it will
soon be apparent that factories are
necessary and will be profitable.
We have near us quantities of hem
lock, the bark of which is first-class
for tanning purposes. We have
6,000,000 pounds of wool to be
scoured, and the same amount to be
put into blankets and woolen goods
for our own people. It will be seen
that it is more profitable, instead of
shipping hides to the East and im
porting shoes and boots, to tan and
make them here.
All in all, the future of The Dalles
appears indeed bright, and we pre
diet for ' hei an increase in popula
tion that will make her second only
to Portland in the cities of this state,
and that will cause her to maintain
her well-earned reputation of being
the best city of size on the coast.
It may truthfully be said of her that
she has never- had a business failure
of any magnitude, and the number
of successful and prosperous men on
the coast who first laid the founda
tion of their foi tunes in the little
city of The Dalles, would almost
equal her present population.
With the coming of spring The
Dalles begin an era of business
prosperity that will extend her busi
ness blocks all over that section be
low the bluff, and cover the gentle
slopes above them with the handsome
residences of a prosperous, happy
and energetic people.
