Down the Columbia to tho Sea-
The Natural Outlet ororcgonaiul Idaho
Bugbear of the Columbia Uar.
From Vie Boise Statesman, Hay SWi.
The Colunibia river is the natur
al outlet for all the vast region
drained by its waters, and is des
tined to be the principal channel
of commerce lor the immense trade
which will come as soon as there
is railroad connection between the
great river of the west and the
Union Pacific railroad. The great
advantage which this route presents
; ,'fc tVonrlrmi frnm Hpnn snnwc nnrl ,
IIIUdilbUUU"ul www w.w .. w U...V&
its directness through the country
to be traversed, more than counter
balances all the disadvantages and
difficulties attending the entrance
over the bar at the mouth of the
river. Since the clay Captain Gray
entered the river with the ship Co
lumbia, without a pilot, and with
out any previous knowledge of the
waters he was navigating, thous
ands of vessels of every descrip
tion and capacity have crossed the
bar coming in and going out at all
seasons of the j'ear and all kinds of
weather. That accidents should
sometimes happen to these
fleets of vessels is not surprising, as
the same thing has occurred to the
entrance of every port; but it is re
markable that after all that has
been said about the difficulties and
dangers of tlrs passage, not an in
stance is on record where a vessel,
known to be seaworthy and en
tering the river in the day time,
and with a pilot, has suffered any
serious accident. Even were the
dangers of navigation real instead
of being in great part imaginary,
and the accidents to vessels ten
fold what they have been, the river
would still continue to be naviga
ted and its entrance continue to be
one of the principal harbors on the
Pacific coast. It is very well
known that the loss of the Great
Republic, which, though one of
the largest steamers afloat, had so
often come in and gone out in per
fect safety, was in no way owing
to any real danger existing on the
bar and in the harbor. Accidents
should be of as rare occurrence at
the mouth of the Columbia as at
the entrance to any other port.
The people of the Puget sound
country, and those of the upper
Columbia basin, are naturally in
favor of the route across the Cas
cade mountains from Priest rapids
on the Columbia to Seattle or some
other point on the sound. The ad
vantages and disadvantages of this
route they will have an opportu
nity of testing when the Northern
Pacific is completed, as it is now
pretty well settled that that road
will be built across the Cascade
mountains to the sound.
For the people of southern Idaho
and eastern Oregon the route
do.Tn the Columbia will be pre
ferred for many reasons, while
their interest in the other route to
the sea is confined to whatever of
favorable competition it may
