Some Things Wanted.
The farmer of Oregon gets $40 per ton for his
Wheat, and the carriers get about $23 per ton
for the same. But the ships are not owned in
the State hence Oregon's loss on WHEAT is
$23 per ton.
The furnishers of Stave-bolts receive about
$15 per cord, and the ship $10 per cord. The
ships not being owned in Oregon $10 per cord
on STAVE-BOLTS are lost to the State.
So, also, with FISH and LUMBER, etc., ex
ported from the Columbia river, the transpor
tation of which is lost to the State.
Ship Owners Wanted.
To save thcselargc sums to the State of Ore
gon. Ships are valuable, and this State pro
duces the best of lumber, spars and iron, for
Ship ITai'&s "Wanted.
On the Columbia river, to retain at home the
expenses of ship building. To build vessels
near the mills, where it can be done cheaply.
An Independent Steamboat Co.
Is Wanted on the Columbia river and tribu
taries, to carry the products of Oregon to the
sea board, where deep vessels may load with
J t is reported that tho Columbia and Wal
lamct (river) Steamboat Companies have an
understanding, a mutual agreement, to limit
their routes and preserve a monopoly. The
farmers on the upper Wallamet cannot get
their grain carried to the ship awaiting cargo
in the Columbia river without paying two
or three companies, and having tho grain re
handled before reaching the ships. The boat
loaded at Salem should proceed directly to
the ocean vessel in Astoria harbor, below all
obstructions, but instead of this she stops 12
miles below the Summer mouth, and 30 miles
from the Winter mouth of the Wallamet, and
passes the grain, (wharf charged,) over to an
other boat of different owners to carry to the
Farmers; Citizens of Oregon; we appeal to
yon! Look to this matter of transportation!
See the large sum the State is continuously
deprived of, by the extravagant method of
shipping which benefits only the wharves at
Portland, and cm iches the steamboat compa
nies. It is this kind of business that enables
shippers to give 'California farmers this year
Thirty-one Cents per Bushel
More than tho Oregon farmer receives for his
wheat. Read, reflect, understand the facts,
then act for yourselves.
