ASTOETA Sept. 28, 1577
From tho Oregon Statesman.
Every indication now points to im
proved times in Oregon. Crop Bros
pects were never better and the
promise of good prices is very flat
tering. From Hon. G. "VV. Colby,
the champion Granger of Northern
California, we learn that the tide of
emigration, from the Southern partis
simply immense, all headed towards
Uregon. uuc it is noc aione trom
Calilorma tnat immigrants are com
ing; they are coming by the hundreds
fron Eastern States.
uregon is no longer Known as a
county in California, but as a State
possessing vast natural resources and
offering better inducements to set
tlers than any other, of the States or
Territories, of the United States.
Sympathizing with California in her
unfavorable prospects for crops for
the coming harvest, yet her misfor
tunehas had the effect to turn the
tide of emigration towards Oregon
where the crops never fail. Here
tofore California has been enabled to
hold out inducements to settle in that
State; but now things have changed,
not only the Eastern emigration, but
also great numbers of Californiansare
leaving their sun-parched homes for
the land of occasional mists." Ore
gon has natural resources for a rich
and populous state, and all that is
now required is development; to ac
complish this it will take capital and
muscle. One of the first things that
should command attention, in such
a way as to insure success, is railroad
communication with the rest of the
world. Thousands of emigrants are
kept from coming to our state by rea
son ol lhe hardships and expense of
getting here. It is not for this pur
pose alone that railroads are needed
but for the general impulse the' will
give business generally as well. Our
state can never become permanently
prosperous while sparsely settled.
Our commerce at present is to
small to command any considerable
attention; hence we are food for mo
nopolies. With increased population
comes increased business and this in
vites competition, all combined pro
duces a market at remunerative
prices. Now is Oregon's opportunity
to move in such enterprises as will
tend to develope her resourses. The
tide of immigration is pouring in up
on us the season has been favorable,
and every indication points to better
times. Then, while in the flood tide
of prosperity, let enteprise and skill
direct all things in the proper chan
nels of continued growth and pros
perity. Railroads cannot be built in
a day, it takes time and means, the
means are not easily obttained; com
bined efforts alone can secure the
necessary aid; therefore, in order to
accomplish anything in that direc
tion, under our present condition,
it is necessary to concentrate. Se
lect some one of the many needed
routes and concentrate all efforts to
accomplish the end then, with in
creased powers, we may be able to
take another, and so on till all that
are needed have bocome accom
Encourage Strangers. The fol
lowing excerpt from the Statesman is
worthy of reproduction. The word.-, ap
ply to Abtorin, as well as Walla Walla.
The Statesman says: " When strangers
come here with means and propose to en
gage in business, encourage them in all
poible ways. If they desire a lot for
building purposes, self it to them at a
reasonable rate. If they wish to e?tablish
a manufacturing enterprise, and require
water power, don't nsfc them three times
as much as the privilege is worth. If you
do the chance is that they will sock some
other locality, and leave you with unpro
ductive property on your hands. Owing
to want of foresight the woolen mills were
driven to Dayton, and in the end have
been the means of building up a formida
ble rival to "Walla Walla. The origina
tors of that enterprise desired to locate
here, but finding that water power could
only be had at an enormous outlay, they
accepted the donation ol a mill site from
Jesse Day, and 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 ol the northwest
coast, Oregon-city had the lead and
promised to be the chief town in the
country. Holders oJ town lots taking
advantage of this, held their property at
oxtravagant figures. The result was the
location of a town named Portland, and
Oiegon-city speculators were left, out in
the cold. Like begets like, and if a selfish
policy killed Oregon-city, it may prove
injurious to other, towns. "Welcome the
stranger within your gate," is an o!d in
junction, the wisdom of which is just as
apparent now as when first uttered. Let
Us welcome new comers, aid them in se
curing locations, and in all suitable ways
make them feel that we are joined with
tnem in the bonds of a commo'i hu
manity." The inhabitants of northwest and
western Oregon, incluriinj; twelve coun
