ROBINSON CRUSOE SAVED.
A Way to Get Out of Astoria Without
the Aid of Boats.

Iionoir.s Pioneering; :i
Cou ul v Kent!.
THE BEGINNING OF THE END.
From time immemorial the denizens
of Astoria have lived upon this Peninsu
la shooting out from between Young's
bay and the Columbia river without any
possible chance of getting off except in
boats, without the risk of losing life, or
breaking necks. Hundreds of times at
least we have in the past four years en
deavored to awaken an interest looking
to the construction of a wagon road out
of the town in some direction. At first
we favored this way. then thai! alo at
last in our despair prayed the authori
ties to go to work and get us a wagon
road in any direction, no matter where,
only do get us a wagon road. We cross
ed the plains in a prairie schooner in
18("2, ami were losing all idea of how the
thing looked, and while we felt anxious
to preserve the recollections of the craft'
we could not bear the expenses of a trip
to Portland and back just for the pur
pose of reviving our recollection as to
what sort of a thing a wagon was. We
may have been a little selfish, but
wanted to see a wagon drive into
Astoria from some place, and at
last our wishes are about to be
gratified. Messrs. F. Ferrell, Jos. Ilig
gins. and A.D. Byers, viewers appointed
by the County court, succeeded last week
in finding a narrow strip of opening
from the intersection of Summit avenue
which was not entirely closed up when
the land-slide (or something else) oc
curred to disjoint the connection of
streets between Olney's and Shively's
Astoria, and through this opening, which
is wide enough to admit of the pa-wage a
wagon, they got out of the city, and into
the suburbs, passing along the boundary
line across West-ninth and West-eighth
streets easterly thence south ami on to
the Walluska bridge. The route is a
good one, comparatively level, and is
near the head of Olney -street. The
county authorities have accepted the re
port, and thus we find the beginning
which is to end in Washington county, as
it passes through the Nehalem valley,
and our Robinson Crusoes may be saved
Our Salem Letter.
Sai.km, October lTtli, 1S77.
Editor Astoria x :
The seventeenth annual State fair just
passed into history, was in many res
pects less satisfactory than any preceed
mg one; extensive preparation had been
made by the Agricultural society in ex
pectation ot the largest attendance ever
before on the grounds. New booths,
cottages and a building for dramatic en
tertainments had been built since last
year, also a large stand lor the lookers
on at the races besides the fitting up of
a building for the Young Men's Chris
tian Association, where daily services
could beheld for the edification of the
sober minded. Water arrangements
had been completed, for laying the dust,
but nature provided that element all too
bountifully for the comfort of fair-goers,
for on Wednesday, the most important
day it stormed very hard, preventing the
attendance usually so large on that and
the succeeding day. The exhibit in the
lloral department was larger and finer
than any previous year, and the same is
true of pictures. In the latter Miss
Dowd of Fast Portland, Miss Nellie
Meacham, Clyde Cook and Mr. Parrott
took the highest premiums. The
flowers and plants exhibited by Henrv
Miller of Portland. Mrs. George Cook
and Mrs. Dr. Chase of this place were
the finest. Multnomah county made the
best showing in fruits, and premium
squashes weighing respectively 14. and
177 pounds were raised 111 or nearSalem.
The wheat ami oats on exhibition were
an honor even in this world-renowned
wheat growing State. The Pluininer
dryer, ami the fruit dried by that pro
cess took nremiums over all others. The
competition between the txhibitors of
pianos aim organs, was verj spnucu,
both amateur and professional musi
cians entertaining charmed audiences
throughout the week: but Kranach and
Bach piano and the Prince organ carried
off the blue ribbons. Of sewing ma
chines, the Wilson took highest honors.
Hundreds of articles in embroidery and
needle-work graced the center pavilion,
but the cases of rare beetles ami butter
flies arranged bv Prof. Johnson, and case
of minerals exhibited by Dr. Chase and
.Mrs. J. D. .Ionian, were a far more at
tractive feature. l'.J) specimens cf wood
from our own native fore&ts jewelry
made of therainbow-huedAbalone snell
found in southern California, aviaries
filled with canaries, and some curiors
ami original patents, formed a display
impossible to particularize, or give you
even an idea of in one connnunieaiipn.
After going about here, there and every
where in search of items, we would al-
ways return to and linger longest in the
center pavilion, lyhich was forthetiniea
lloral bewer: the aquariums, hanging
baskets, fountains sending 1 tiny jets
of spray, floral designs, tables massed
with cut flowers, "com Dined to make the
spot a place of heautvl"and a joy ' during
tjie whole wee Ti&' poultry was re-
markable for variety and size, especially
that entered by Luther Myers of tins
place; such brahmas, cochins, gold ami
silver spangled haniburgs and polands
were never exhibited before, and cer
tainly could not be excelled. The cattle
and liorses were said to exceed in num
bersespecially the latter and in qual
ity, the entries of any previous year;
but I cannot tell you as much about
them, as concerning the machinery, and
a tour of inspection through machinery
hall gave wonderful insight into the ex
tent and variety of the agricultural im- '
elements. Ha'wley, Dodd & Co., and
Knipp, Bun ell & Co., have the most ex
tensive showing in this line, and all
through the exhibit we were pleased to
see articles used in farming, of Oregon
manufacture, and in many cases of "na
tive invention, a machine for putting a
fence together, a self-closing gate (mod
el), a clod-crusher and harrow combined,,
and a hay-presser, were the results of
Oiegon genius: but you would not have
space for mention of the many things
that were exhibited in this department
Financial ly the Fair was not a success
as the agricultural society was obliged
to borrow money to pay up the premium
1 ist : it took place just one week too early,,
lor now we are having the loveliest of
Indian summer days, the niostchaiming;
moonlight evenings, in contrast with
last week's storms and dark nights. It
is thought the Fair will hold two weeks
Mr." Jack's troupe, so long favorites
with Astorians, had a very popular and
successful engagement of two weeks at
the Opera House, closing on Saturday
night with Arrah 11a Pcgue. The most
interesting thing in the show line on the
Fair grounds, was Saniwell's trained
dogs, everybody went, were highly en
tertained and came away wondering
at the almost human intelligence of tire
eight or nine canines.
From your vicinity were Mr. llully
Van Dusen of your city, Mrs. Carnahah
ami Mr. Morrison of Skipanon, and Mr
and Mrs. Wadhams of upper town.
Improvement. The Lewiston Tell
er strongly advocates the improvement
of Clearwater river from its mouth tothe
forks, a distance of 80 miles. It says:.
'For at least four months in each
year, there is water enough in the
Clearwater river for light draft stea
mers to ascend as far as the mouth of
the middle fork, about five miles abover
Kamia, and for several more months
enough to tloat barges capable of
carrying 100 tons each, downthe cur
rent, to any point below. Buf there
a few rocks and rapids in the rivei
which require removing and improving;
to make this navigation safe and sure.
The sum of 25,000, .and some say the
smn of $15,000, judiciously expended,,
can make this improvement." By
making this improvement the settlers
of Camas Prairie would be afforded an
outlet for their surplus products.
The imirovement should be made.
Adulteration of Milk. The Chi
cago papers, after exhausting the sub
ject of the impurities of the Lake
water, have gone into the diagram
business of swill milk. A whole
page of the Inter Ocean is illuminated
with cuts of magnified impurities con
tained in the lacteal fluid peddled by
the dairyman in that city, and the
images are fearful to contemplate in
i eir magnified form. One of the
prolific cause of disease in children is
attributed to the poisons used in milk
adulteration; and the efforts being
made in Chicago and New York to
punish the venders of the obnoxious
article are to be commended if they will
put a stop to the evil in those cities,
and serve to deter milk dealers from
indulging in similar practice.
Gen. Sherman, when in Walla
Walla, informed Gov. Potts, of Mon
tana, that he made the trip through
from Missoula inlo days by the JMul
lan wagon road all in good order. But
says the General, "the road was on y
passable by hard work on the part of
our escort. It is the best road be
tween Montana and this part of our
country, and I will endeavor to have
troops pass over it annually so as to
renew travel. To facilitate this end I
shall endeavor to have a good military
post, like Missoula, established where
the Cceur d'Alene lake discharges its
surplus water by the Spokane river,
or thereabouts. The road thence to
AValla Walla is good, and the country
is settling up. I believe a valuable
trade may grow up between Montana
and Washington territory. " The Walla
Walla Union says: "The location of
the proposed post is said to be on the
shore of a beautiful lake, and near
the Cceur d'Alene reservation. The
plan qf Gen. Sherman, if carried out,
will proye of gie.it benefit to the te:
ritones of Vasnington and Montana,
as it will open up a road for passage!
of immmcants and freights in advance
of the completion of tjio Northern PaT
