A Had Policy.
The following extract from the Walla
Walla Statesman should be carefully read
by our property owners, and especially by
the owners of our magnificent water pow
er, lhat paper, however, is a little "oil
when it says that Oregon C ity "was killed
by the selrish policy." Our "city still has
considerable life, arid a brilliant future is
in store for it if a proper spirit is manifest
ed by the owners of the water power. The
policy of the owners of the water power
has been a great drawback to the place,
and has driven manufactures to other
points, and it is about time they were
opening their eyes to the fact. "We are
informed by a reliable party that several
of our mechanics would make use of the
water power, but that it is held at an ex
orbitant figure. Our city has many ad
vantages over points up the valley in re
gard to transtortation and neariiess to
market, but men starting new industries
which build up a town expect to receive
encouragement and aid from the citizens,
and not to pay fancy prices for water
jiower and building sites. With every
advantage possessed by any place on the
coast, our city is passed by, and manufac
turing industries are locating in places
less favored, simply because they receive
encouragement and substantial aid. The
Statesman says : "When strangers come
here with means 'and propose to engage
in business.eneourage thorn in all possilde
ways. If they desire a lot for building
purposes, sel Tit to them at a reasonable
rate. If they wish to establish a manufac
turing enterprise, and require water pow
or, don't ask them three times as much as
the privilege is worth. If you do, the
chance is that they will seek some other
locality, and leave you with unproductive
property or: your hands. Owing to want
of foresight the woolen mills were driven
to Dayton and in the end have been the
mean's of building up a formidable rival
to Walla Walla. Tho originators of that
enterprise desired to locato here, but find
ing that water power cotiUl only be had at
an enormous outlay, they accepted the
donation of a mill site from Jesse Dav.aud
built their factory at a town that then only
had an existence on paper. The surest
way to build up a town is to deal liberally
with strangers. In the early settlement
of the Northwest Coast, Oregon City had
the lead, and promised to 'be the chief
town in tho country. Holders of town
lots, taking the advantage of this, held
their property at extravagant figures. Tho
result was the location ot a town named
Portland, and Oregon City speculators
were left out in the cold. Like liegets like,
and if a selfish policy killed Oregon C.ty
it may prove injurious to other towns.
'Welcome the stranger within your gate'
is an old injunction, the wisdom of which
is just as apparent now as when first utter
ed. Let us welcome new comers, and in
all suitable ways make them feel that we
are joined with them in the bonds of a
Iv Broad Daylight. East Monday the
residence of Mr. George Marshall, near
Fourth and B streets, Portland, was enter
ed, and $50, which Mrs. Marshall had
placed on the sideboard to pay the mu.-ie
teacher, stolen. Two lino watches and a
lot of silverware, which lav in close prox
imity, were untouched. The women folks
occupied the house at the time, and heard
their visitor in his perambulations through
the various rooms up stairs. Uiey 11 rial ly
became suspicious, and giving the alarin,
frightened the fellow away. He was seen
leaving the house in a hurry, and escaped
before a pursuit wasorganr.ed.-LStandard
