TAKE IT AT THE FLOOD.
Nature has done much for The
Dalles; so much, indeed, that but
little could be asked or granted.
The one piece of carelessness of
whioh she was guilty, that is the
leaving of obstructions to navi
gation in the Columbia, has been
in part corrected by a generous gov
ernment, which promises to complete
the good work by overcoming the
obstructions above here. We cannot
expect either Nature or the govern
ment to do more for us than vhis,
consequently we must, to reach that
height of prosperity and growth to
which our position entitles us, work
out our own salvation.
Never city had better or grander
opportunities, and never one where
so little efforts would return such
magnificent rewards. We cannot
grow and prosper without the ex
penditure of efforts and money, and
when either are required we should
one and all unite to accomplish the
object desired. We need more local
pride, more reliance in and on each
other, more faith in the local patriot
ism of each of our fellow townsmen,
and with this we must cultivate the
disposition to help along each and
every project that will help us all
along. There is net another city in
Oiegon that would rest quietly as
- The Dalles has done for months with
the knowledge that under her busi
ness blocks, down at no great dis
tance, perhaps, is lying a vast store
house of wealth in the shape of coal ;
that on each side of her for miles,
perhaps, extended valuable coal beds,
whose exploiting would make her
jump from a city of 4,000 to one of
40,000 in three or four years. This
we have done, this we are doing, but
this we should no loDger continue to
x Down on Chenoweth creek a few
of our fellow townsmen have expend
ed in the past few years between
$3,000 and $4,000 attempting to
prospect this coal field. They have
, worked under great difficulties, and
have now reached a point where they
do not feel able to go farther. The
work has been in charge of .an ex
perienced coal miner, one who has
the utmost confidence in finding a
fine body of coal, and who has backed
that confidence with both time and
money." Every foot through which
their drill has been sent is of the very
best coal-measures, and where they
are now tied up the drill has pene
trated a body of fine iron ore over
sixty feet. This ore is what has
bothered them, and finally brought
their work to a standstill, where it
must remain, if our citizens do not
' take hold to help them. With their
present appliances it is almost impos
sible to do anything, the drill cutting
into the iron ore just the same as if

it dropped on an anvil, cutting a
mark at each stroke, but removing
nothing. To e;o further will require
a diamond drill; to purchase a dia
mond drill will require $1,000. The
gentleman we have spoken of stands
ready to put up $500 towards this
purchase if the other $500 can be
raised. Here is an opportunity to
test this question of coal or no coal,
and to do it cheaply. With the dia
mond drill purchased it will be oper
ated free of expense to anyone, and
be sent down deep enough to test the
matter thoroughly. Can we afford
to let the rratter slip? Most assured
ly not. we oeiieve n the matter is

be raised, and we suggest to The
Dalles Commercial Club, which has
already shown its williugness and
ability to handle whatever it lakes
hold of, that here is a field for its
energy and enterprise, and a reward
worthy of the most persistent effort
Great as has been the work at the
Cascades, and much as it will assist
in building up our city, it will no
compare, in its benefits to this city,
to the results of opening a good pay
in? vein of coal. The coal measures
here are of the best, and we believe
firmly that a diamond drill sent down
two or three hundred feet further
will demonstrate the fact that we
have as fine a coal field as there is on
the coast. If we have, let us find it
out at once, and if we hive not, let
us satisfy ourselves of that fact.'
Fiva hundred dollars will settle the
question. Can we afford to leave it
