City Now ;-

Report Here . ; -
Strong indication that
freighting on the -Willamette
river between Salem and
Portland by means of barge, v
a dream of river navigators ,
as well as manufacturers, ca
ners, agriculturists and otb-.
ere, will soon be an actuality. '
is contained in dispatches wt t
ceived here Monday. .
These . dispatches b r l b ar ;
word that by Thursday of this
week, a contract . for barga!
navigation in the Willamette
river will be announced, thia
navigation to extend "to '
point above Oregon City, -which
has been the head' f ,
heavy freight traffic on the river,
neretorore. They add that the
point above Oregon City" Is ho
lered to be Salem. ,
Inquiry among persons at pt
ent engaged in river navlgatie.
discloses that the project in ques
tion is a new one and that the
parties thereto are saying nothtear
until the matter Is settled. It wae
stated that one party had signed
the contract and that It is in tfce
hands of a second.
Will Make Salem
Practically Seaport
Barge navigation has long been
sought here as a means of estab
lishing Salent virtually as a --
port city from the standpoint ef
manufacturing- and fruit produc
tion advantages. Barge transner-
tatlon from Salem to Porjlaad
win mean that freight charges '
from here to. world markets will
be practically on a par with sea'!
port charges, with only the added
cost of transferring freight from
the barges to steamers at Pert- .
Realisation of this dream hae
been held up due to the shallow
portions of the river which have
precluded year-around navigation.
During a large portion of the year ;
freighting on the river is possible
and the Salem Navigation com
pany has operated two steamer'
I with heavy patronage in the last
year. , . , , w
Last year after more than the
usual amount of work had been
done toward Improving the river,
it was hoped that the steamr
eould travel all summer and fall,
but an .unprecedented dry period
spoiled- these plans. - However,
still more work is being done this v
year and appropriations are la
sight for a greater program In fu
ture. Paper, lumber and all of the
land crops of the middle Willam
ette valley wlU be aided by tale
project, and the Inauguration et '
barge traffic now will also hasten
the time when the. government,
will authorize permanent lu-
provements on the river 'toe
"still water" of which much ha
been said and written. ,
Present plans call for construc
tion of wing dams to raise the
water to needed levels at the few
shallow, places below Salem. Word -also
came Monday that Pmideaa.
Hoover bed told Senator McKary.
he was whole heartedly In faver
of improving this river to permit -large
scale freighting.
