An up-country paper mentions a
remarkable frolic at the house of
young Widow Jones. It comprised a
wood -chopping, rag-cutting and candy
pulling. Young men who hadn't split
a stick for their poor old mothers for
over a yfcar actually chopped a cord
apiece; the girls cut forty-nine pounds
of rag3; and as for candy, the whole
crowd were smeared with concrete
molasses from head to foot.
At a meeting of the Portland JJoavd
of Trade last Wednesday.- evening, to
hear the report of the committee ap
pointed to consider tho matter of rix'er
imurovemcut, considerable interest
was manifested. The report, which
is very extensive, reviews the nature
and formation jf the bars in the Co
lumbia between Astoria and 1'oitlandj
and recommends that a dredge be
built, of the nost approved de
scription and of sufficient power to
remove at least 1000 cubic yards of
deposit per day of ten hours. It is
thought that a dredgfc of that capacity
could be built for .910,000; that three
scows could be supplied for &",100,
and that the cost of operating the out
fit for one year would be 8G,000, the
cost to be borne by the city of Port
land. The report suggests a direct
tax of five mills to raise a fund to be
applied to keeping clear a ship channel
in the Willamette, and that the U. S.
dredge be used exclusively in the &:
lumbia. The report goes en: "Your
committee would net call your atten
tion to the present condition of the
Columbia river bar. Work on t his bar
is quite as necessary and vital as upon
any other obstruction to navigation
that exists between Portland and ihe
sea. This work will pei haps be costly,
and the means to be provided of a
different class, and more extensive
than the simple removal of a river bar.
If a dredge be employed it will require
one of a different character and power
to the rue no hive recommended for
use in the Willamette river. The Co
lumbia bar dredge should be self-propelling
and capable of going to .sea, or
resisting a considerable sea, and
should be of the endless chain variety,
woiking from the side of the ship.
That such a dredge could be'builthere
and suitable machinery procured for
it to insure its success is undoubted
by your committee. But it is quite a
question whether this plan of dredg
ing the Columbia river bar is the best
one or not. The lestoratimi of the
shore line at or near Fort Stevens
might be accomplished and this cer
tainly would be siicces-sHil in the
establi.shmeui of ship channel to give
a greater depth of water than twenty
five feet. In cither case, however, it
is quite evident that funds will be re
quiredand a considerable amount--whether
to build a sea-going divdge,
or to build permanent improvements
n the old shore line of Clatsop."
The committee further recommends
"that some suitable person conversant
with the needs of our growing commerce
and the present condition of the ob
structions to navigation on the Colum
bia and Willamette livens be sent to
the city of Washington at an early day
to represent this board of trade, and
if possible the city council and the
board of trade of Astoria and its city
council; one whoe energy would be
directed to the one end in view, to as
sist our congressman, Air. Oeorge,
and our senators, .Messrs. C! rover and
Slater, to procure a sufficient appro
priation to secure work of a character
to remove the obstructions and deepen
the channels of these rivers. And we
would further recommend that 1000
be. raised as soon as practicable for
this purpose by subscriptions from our
citizens and members of this boaid."
Congressman (Jcorge xaid in reference
to the bar, that the (Jovernnient sur
vey in ISol showed a channel .similar
to the present, while in intermediate
years there were at times one and at
others two well defined channels.
This was accounicd for by the action
of the currents and tides on Clatsop
spit, which would extend north io a
certain poiui. When it had reached
its greatest dimensions it would
"slough" off, .so to speak, ami allow a
considerable poitimi of the volume of
the Cdlumbia to escape through a
south channel, it seems that Clatsop
spit has now reached it3 greatest di
mensions, and he favored the con
struction of jetties to prevent it again
"sloughing' off. At the close of the
remarks the secretary was instructed
to ask the co-operation of our Cham
ber of Commerce in the work of
securing necessary appropriations.
The report itself and the comments
thereon are very sensible and impar
tial. Wo are glad to note such action
on the part of Port landers, and are
certain from conversation with mem
bers of the board bore, that hearty
co-operation may be counted on from

when mechanical trades provided our

chincn, 'patent fools and steam have
robbed the trade of the future It offered
to onr boys in the days of the indentured

composed largely of tradesmen and

a failure, if the number of bankrupt
merchants who had to .succumb to the
pressure of the times can be taken as a
criterion. Whatthc country needs Is pro
