VOL,. XIII. PORTLAND, OREGON, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 1G, 1881. NO. 81. CRATER LAKE AND ROGUE RIVER FALLS. Among Southern Oregen Scenery. A Few of tke Pleasing Sights Portrayed Cross lag the Cascades Twice Indian Curiosities, LinkriUe,Etc , This Summer a number of us made up a party in Jacksonville, Oregon, for the pur pose of visiting Crater Lake and Roue River Falls, and some of the vondera of Southern Oregon scenery. There vv ere two routes av ml .able, one South of Jacksonville by way of Linkville and Fort Klamath, and the other up the Rogue Ki-er to the East. Not wishing to be partial, and finding it to be quite feasi ble, we went out by the Rogue river, ciossing the Cascade range, thence to Fort Klamath, by Linkville, and again crossing back over the Cascade mountains, and in this w ay util izing both routes. We were barely out of sight of Jacksonville befote we fiist came iu contract with Rogue river (properly called Gold river;) up the rier our route lay for a dist ince of 83 miles; all the time a continuous .ascent. Just here I will state' that our outfit con sisted of a two-seated thorough-brace hack and two horses add necessary supplies of pro visions and blankets. In our party were three young ladies and two young gentlemen. The young ladies would prepare our meals, whilst we brought wood, built fires, fetched water, etc. The trouble of pitching a tent was over come by improvising a sleeping apartment in the hack for the girls; we boys just made the best of a hard bed on the ground alongside the wagon. All the way we weio continually passing through and amongst magnificent scenery, which can hardly be surpassed in the known world. The second day out we reached Dustin's mill, where is situated the KOGCK RirtK FALLS. The river at this point makes a fall of prob ably 400 or 500 feet iu a distance of not over one mile by a series of cascades; cascades over which' fish are unable to pass at any season of the year. The county had just completed a bridge at the head of the rapids, so that we eould see and admire the works of nature Following the river ilovv n probably one mile we came to a canyon over 300 feet deep, through which the lapids could bo seen, although not so swiftly running as they were at the bridge. Just across this canyon is Seen what is improperly called Rogue Kiver Falls. It consists of a large creek that comes pouring and thundering over the perpendicular walls, and falls a distance of 182 feet without strik ing an obstacle. The water, when it reaches the bottom, is nothing but a cloud of mist, and is carried by the winds in every direction. It seems as though nature did not intend robbing tourists of a nearer view or approach to this grand sight, as, after a few moments, we found the natural pass to the water's edge. The bed of the river was covered with a heavy vegetation of mOBs, and as we sprang from bow lder to rock w c w ould sink knee deep in the moss, which was not the pleasant est feeling, when one took into account how damp it was kept by the continual clouds of spray that swept over it. While we stood looking and admiring this grand spectacle the wind suddenly changed, ami we were iinnicili ately wet to the skin. This was the nearest wecune to getting untrr the fall. Scarcely a step further away was another fall, although sm tiler in size and distance of fall, jet none the less attractive. Over the l!uIT in one solid sheet it came, increasing in motion, until by a projocting rock it is divided in twain; thus divided, it continued on until it fell rippling over the rocks into the river be low. As it came over it was of milk white ness, and as it descended a blueish tint was imparted that made it really beautiful. This is properly and truthfully called the Bridal Vail. The forenoon quickly passed away in admiring these natural phenomena, and the day was well spent both as regards enjoyment and time; and as a consequence we were obliged to travel until 10 o'clock at night to make op for lost time. Another sight is rVllAMIII CAM ON. The rier passes through a can) on composed of a light soil, and as iime and the water have washed away the loose soil, or rather a species of pumice formation, it has left stand ing picturesque, tall and spiral columns of sandstone formation, of grotesque and weird shapes. A number of the largest liave crum bled awy and lay prostrated. As tins is about the beginning of the canyon, we can only liken them to sentinels keeping watch over the entrance of that nver, yet in its in fancy, and seeing that it takes the straight and narrow way; although we must say that it deviates considerably in after scenes and gets tumbled about in a decidedly careless manner One hajf ilaj drive and we are at CtW.r Like, one of the highest points in the Ca. a .ic range; and Mount McLaughlin, which loomed up and looks to bi,; from Jacksonville, is alongside and ilw indies into an insignificant ly small mountain and instead of being in the l'ast is in the West, for we have complet ed the task of ciicuiiyveiiting Mt. McLaughlin Striking camp on a mall stieam that aiose in a snow bank near by, and w liii.li can almost lie called one ot the heads of Rogue liver, we prepared to do the lake. A half hour's walk and the task was completed. A giand sight met us; the air was hushed to a solemn soil ness that was appallim.'; not a living thing was "seen; beloie us lay the quiet wute'sof I RATLH I.IKE, Not a ripple could be seen; the fuither banks stood boldly and abruptly be fore us; the stillness was onl) broken by our voices; and now we stood before the goal of our ambition Ciater Lake. Below us, al most a thousand feet, the waters could be seen', but no banks. While beneath our very feet was green grass an! blooming Mowers, showing that Spring had just aimed, and cveiy thing becmed fresh. Wo never saw such a beiutiful arraj of flora befoie. Flow ers of every description and color enlivened and beautified the scene Surely the super stitious Indians had cause to fear this place. For, as the Indians claim, an evil spirit dwells here, and all their belief is founded upon the lict that years ago a party of In dians attempted to pass over the lake and thai when near the center their friends upon shore saw the evil spirit reach up and drag them down, boat and all. And as a conse quence it is impossible t get an Indian to venture near there under any circumstances. The only clue we can give to this legend is that thero probably exists at or near the cen ter of the lake a whiilpool or suck hole, and that the boat and its occupants were drawn down into it end first. It is not known that the lake has any visible outlet, but it is sup posed that Annie's creek, Wood river and Williamson river all head here; and if such is the case, and the location of these sticams be in ir on that side of the lake, the probable evi dence of a whirlpool is quite well established. This we know: That a stick thrown in on tne West side by us immediately begau floating toward the South alal . tie, lovl. -A- great many would like to hear it we will give a few figures. The lake is feemiugly lound, and in the center is an island which rises to a sharp point and which is pionouneed by tho,o who have visited it, as beingan extinct ciater. There aie steep and seemingly unacceisible blulh on all sides, especially on the North, Bast and South sides, wheie these bin lis range in height fronifWOto 2,000 feet, several points being over 1,200 feet high. On the West sde, on which we stand, is the only place easy of descent and ascent, which we accom plished in one hour and a half, and is SM feet to the water's edge. The other gentleman of the party and I went to the water's edge. Thero was hardly a ripple, and the w ater w as quite cold. Wild flowers grew abundantly at the very waters edge. After getting down we found a very short stretch of shallow water, and we do not doubt but that 20 feet from shore its depth is thousands of feet. At a point between the island and the Wtst banks a measurement of "."0 feet was gotten, while to the South a short distance uo meas urement could be obtained. Tjiie lake is vari ously estimated at from 1,1 to 20 miles atonnd. The evidence goes to show that this Has once the home of a volcano, and tlut through some unknown agency it telescoped and funned as it has Crater lake, and is so called. VVUt.N TO VI-ilT Till LAKh. The best time of the year to visit Crater lake is undoubtedly August or September, as at that time the snow has disappcaied, or quite near bo. We only encountered several small patches of snow, and these were not in the way. The treeii grass and Spring Mowers showed but too plainly that the Winter's snow had but recently gone oil. The Mora around the lake and on the neighboring hills was very beautiful and we came across many rare plants, During our journey to the lake we had delightful days of weather, anil it was neither too cold or too -sarin. Iu the even ings wo had a full moon. So altogether our time of going was a very favorable one. Dur ing our stay in the vicinity of the lake we twice visited this charming scene. There is a good road so that one can drive to the lake's very edge m a carnage. Leaving Cnter lake camp at 5 o'clock we drove on over the mountain, down Annie's creek canyon into Kastern Oregon, and accom plished a distance of 28 miles before 12 o'clock. All this distance was driven after dark and by moonlight. The head of Annie's creek comes out of the ground iu a s-ot not four feet n-uare, ami is strong inough to run a Mour mill. The water is lie cold. After ituiu' from the mountain side, It Halts almost immediately into a can j on which prows largei, and is encased by high perpendicular Hull's of solid basalt rock. Our route lay alung the caujoa's edge, and we could distinctly hear the murmur of the water hundreds of feet below, and seen by moonlight as we saw it, the rocks anl'crevices too ghostly and unnatuial shapes, and was a constant source of pleasiue, and constant sur prises to us, benighted trav elers. While spin ning thiough the heavy forest that bolder tho canyon we suddenly straddled a logr and we were then and .there obliged to chop it out. But the event was enjoyed, as it spiced of roughing it and backwood's life. That night we camped within a mile of Foit Klamath, and, next morning, visited the same. We are now in tho Klamath Lake country. After ltav nig tho Fort, we next came to the Agency. Klamath Indian Agency is situated in quite a favorable locality. The Government has erect ed school houses, giist mills, etc., for the In dians as they aie now self-sustaining. Leaving the Agency, we stiike over to Williamson liv er, where we make an caily camp for the pur pose ot fishing. This is, without a doubt, one of the finest flaliinc grounds in the State. 8uf' lice to say that w e caught enough for supper and breakfast, without having to go out of sieht of camp, ard in an hour at that. While fishing, we met an Indian who had been fish ing, and who had half a dc-en that were fully three feet in length and weighed not less than fifteen on t a cutv pounds. The next point of interest is Modoc Point a large and abrupt piomontory that abuts into the waters of Big Klamath Lake. A roadway has been ttiade around this bluif, and although thousand's of dollars have been spent on it, yet it is now a rough rocky load. The distance around this point is five miles. Above the boulders look ilow n upon us, and below us flashes the tem pestuous wateis of Big Klamath Lake. Thou sands of snakes, many of the lattlesnakes of the most poisonous nature, abound. We coi neied one big fellow who was tiyiug to swaK low a rat, and killed him. There were eleven rattles, showing the-ieptile to be eleven years old. The rattles are still preset ved by oife of onr party as a trophy of Modoc I'omt. The Modoc Indians used to infest this particular locality; so it was named Modoc l'ointyvftcr them. The toll gate passed, we gojou tq Mr. rjr-smy'cFs lancinciTil 116011" ""Avcrlian sprnit of Mr. D.'s plafc iu a separate article.) We then drove that evening to Linkville, where we tan led over night. Our party met riany tiiends. Our tup from lieic was of minor detail, anil was a very pleasant drive ov er the Cascade mountains, and then home again. This was undoubtedly one of the quickest, jolhest and pleasantcst trips ever made from Jackson county to Crater Lake and return and was duly christened by the party as "the Comfortable Crowd." Those composing the party were Mr. Henry 1'ape, Jr., and Miss Emma I'ape, Miss Fannie Dow ell, Wm. J. Clarke and Miss Sallie Clarke. Mr. illiam Shook met tho party at Williamson river, w here w e had a pleasant eveuiug party of half a dozen young people from the Agency, and accompanied us to Linkville. There is at present a small steamer on the lake, ouued by Mr. II. M. Thatcher, but while we weie theie it was away up thy lake logving; so we muld not accept the owner's hospitablo invitation to takeuiide. M. J. Clakm. GENERAL NOTES 1'euilLtoii Tiihunt: l)r hall lufmius us that the Iudiius on the Luutilla le eiv.ition have raised, this ar, ab' ut l.",000 oi 20.000 bushels of wheat, besides othei grain La Grande ('uiit'j'Oinltiiit As fai s we know, crops in the valley are yielding well -over average. We hear of on fanner who threshed 400 bushels of oats from four acres of ground. Can jou beat that on "jour Hide!" Ku,ene Journal' This is a reiuaikably good season for a heavy oat yield. Never wire they more plentiful and cheap. On the faun of R, It. Cochran, near Coburg, 170 Jmsluls were cut and thtcshed from three acrei of nt w ground.

Such pel sons hive no sense of shame, and should be prosecuted and lined heavil) . Kugeue (luard- During last svccl the sa. lem Flouring Mills purchased 100,000 bushels of wheat. The price paid was 7.1 cents net for wheat the nthcr side of Junction City, and i ' cents net this side of that place, Of the above amount, 70,000 bushels cmie from Lane I county. I Coos county, says the A'tiv, doen almut uli ! the ship building in Oregon. The marine structures hero represent about $100,000 per annum; with our facilities ind the new ship yards in contemplation of Uiug staitol, the industry should incressc to hulf a million a year in a short time. f Joldendale (luutle; 0.i Geo.

And vet some people say that the Klickitat climate is miserable, and that its soil is w orthless. Goldendale Oazrttr: W. 11. Noblew writes us, fiom the Alder Creek country, that he list a turnip 30J inches in circumference, and that he has other vegetables of proportionate sire. We know of sev eral farmers w ho have mon ster vegetables of one kind or another that will most likely be on exhibition at our Fair. Union County Itnoiil: The cattle plague in the Wallowa is yet a great grievance to the stock o unci s in that section. Numbers aie dying dill), and no lemcdy has yet been found. Tho disease fust shows itself by lame ness in the legs of the animal allected. Morti fication sets in immedistely, and death ensues iu a shoit time. I'endleton Tribune- Blue Mountain is the name of the station at the terminus of the nai row gauge branch that leaves the main line at Whitman. It is a place of no great importance excepting as a shipping point for wheat. There aie laid "down daily at Blue Mountain over two bundled tons of wheat, while only about seenty tons are taken away by the trains. Wcton l.rmltr William Kdwards had 40 acres of Spring wheat that give 2.1 bushels to the acie, and 50 acies of Fall wheat that pro duccd 40 bushels to the acre. 25 acres of oats belonging to A. 1. Kirkland yielded 1,500 bushels, an uveiage of 00 bushels to the acie; 20 acies of barley averaged 40 bushels to the acie, and 225 acies of wheat brought 7,300 bushels. State Join mil: Gicat quantities of wheat ai e being hauled into town and stoicd at the different warehouses. .Kveiy day this week long lines of wagons could be seen standing at the nulls, each man patiently waiting until his turn at unloading came. Threshing has been almost completed ncioss the river, but in the Spen;er Creek and Long Tom country is not neaily finished. All report fair yields. Jacksonville Senliutl: Mr. Joseph Sitter field, of 1TIie Meadows," has' Indught us some fine white turnips fiom seed that was raised this Mihimor. That is: the tuiuip was planted in the hpnng; the seed inatnied and sown, and a large ciop of loots raised fiom it. Mr. S. has also a ciop of potatoes giouiig from seed idUtd this year, the second ciop promising as well as tho fiist. This is good evidence of the pi olific soil and favorublo cli mate of Jackson county. Walla Walla Unioir A very icliable fann er, who lives a short distance South of this city, has given the following: Walla Walla, August 30th, 1881. "I hereby certify that I harvested and threshed, from thirty acres of land upon iny farm, threo and a half miles South of Walla Walla, 2, 108 bushels of wheat, of the variety known as the 'Little Club.' This grnm was put in about the last of Octo ber, I8i0, anil hat vested in August, 1881. Simuel Kdwurds." The statement of Mr, Kdwaids is vouched for us true by those who helped haivcst the ciop. Where else in the world do they obtain over 70 bushels of whiat to the a' re?
