At the Villard meeting in Port
land last Saturday, Capt. II. C.
Gorringe, who has accompanied
that- gentleman in his tour of in
spection, addressed those present
on the subject of river obstruc
tions. He thought that a channel
100 feet wide and 25 feet deep
could be opened and maintained
between here and Portland by
dredging, at a first cost of $200,
000 and an annual expenditure of
$50,000. He -would apply the
same contrivance dredger to
improve, the bar at the mouth of
.. 'the river. Upon this- point he
says: "I do not believe in con cen
tracting: river channels in ofder to
deepen them by the scouring of
the current. This system has been
iried repeatedly and has always
failed in the end to attain the re
sults aimed at. Every river brings
down a certain amount of silt and
deposits it somewhere. Tf you
I prevent the" deposit by artificial
" ' means where natural conditions
invite it, the silt will accumulate
elsewhere, generally where it is
not; o easily disposed of, and thus
make matters worse. The inevit
able result is the demand for more
contraction of the natural water-
way at an ultimate cost out of all
, proportion to results, and gener
' ja.llywi.th disastrous consequences.
'Many European rivers have been
so contracted, and we xead of dis
astrous floods recurring at frequent
. intervals: These floods never oc-"cur-in
rivers that have not had the
-natural .water-ways artificially con
tracted. Notable instances of the
" failure of this system are the
mouths of the Rhone and the Mis
sissippi.' Our exporience of the
Rhone is of a very limited nature;
' but in reference to the Mississippi,
Capt. Gorringe, in his statement,
makes two mistakes. Floods do
v occur in rivers that "have not had
the natural water-ways artificially
; contracted" notably the one he
instances the Mississippi, and
man' of its tributaries; again he
speaks of the "failure" at the
mouth- of the Mississippi, which
will be news to every ene: to none
more than the Government enm-
- i- -neers stationed there, who, though
antagonistic to Eads and his pro
ject, and on the look out for any
..failure -of contract, certify weekly
Ftgf the Government that from
(actual soundings he keeps a chan
nel "200 feet wide and 2C feet !
3
deep, and Eads himself states, un
contradicted, that since its com
pletion no vessel has been detained
ne hour. However these are
. lienor considerations and some
what foreign to the matter that
' directly concerns Astoria and the
Northwest; the improvement of
the bar. Speaking of a style of
i .dredger used, at the Sniez canal,
Capt. Gorringe says: "The ca
pacity; of these dredgers is three
hundred tons a day, and T have
seen them werking: while the sea
cSvas very 'rough, and frequently
. , breaking all around them. One of
the.se dredgers on the Columbia
' -iyEp would maintain a channel
thirty feet in depth, and if French
, men can make them and use them
T am sure Americans can. There
j. are many other dredgers designed
expressly for work in the open sea
"' and capable of making a voyage
around the world. The. question
l- i?iiot.can a suitable dredger be
had to work on the Columbia bar
: ' 'in-moderate weather, but is it bet
ter to deepen the bar by dredging
i J ? or by contracting the channel?
Contracting a channel to deepen a
:fe5,r.s?.ines'tnat tue difficulty to
he overcome will adapt itself to
;jdfcyjmroonvenience. ; .Providing ade
quate dredge-power for any emer
gency means that vou propose to
..A
,pursue.the difficulty to whatever
- it develops." The results are of
eteeratfc consequence. How
efej53it?8 to -be done is or burner im-
. portance. Each project has its
-i supporters. There never was a
more favorable titp.c than the pres
ent to agitato 'his matter. The
Portland prcs and the Portland
people arc Apparently of the opin
ion that they must deepen the
river lwtween here and there
themsr'.ves. It certainly looks
that, ray.
The point for Astoria to make is
'this: that whatever the means by
which the Columbia river is to be
improved, the bar at its mouth
should, of necessity, be the initial
point. The bar as it seems to us
is iormed mainly by deposits of
sediment brought down by the
current from the interier: were it
composed of sand thrown up by
the action of the sea, its general
appearance and characteristics
would be very different from what
it is. T, he fact of not being able
to drive piles there shows this.
"Were it quicksand they would
soon sink out of sight if left to
themselves: as it is, the heaviest
hammer is unable to drive a pile.
Now, if a dredger ot the greatest
capacity were put at work at any
or every bar between here and
Portland to-morrow morning, what
effect would it have on the bar at
the river's mouth? Simply aug
ment its difficulties. All the work
that Portland purposes is to make
it easier for ships to get to that
place. At which end of the toute
should the work be begun? The
ships must get to Portland before
they can go out. So that if Port
land wants to hold her position she
must make common cause with
Astoria and unite in an effort to
have the bar improved in the man
ner that the magnitude of the
interests involved demands.
The "Polaris."
Tue first number of the Polaris,
a new Portland weekly, is upon
our table. It is a clean, well
printed journal, and if it does half
what it promises, will be a power.
The opening chorus is a little too
lofty; probably after a mouth or
so the machinery will run smoother.
It classes ignorance among sereral
alleged "crimes against God," and
avows its determination to light
against that and kindred evils. It
might, en 2(iss(nit, be not wholly
out of place to suggest that the
editor bend his intellect to the
preliminary consideration ol a
spelling book; but then as orthog
raphy is getting to be bimpiy a
matter of private judgment, per
haps that is of minor consequence.
