THE SUNSET STATE.
Men must move. The spirit of
change is a part of our natures for
further told iti the monstrous stories
about "rain in Oregon." The
whole coast is a battle "round oe
warmed bv the sun in the vallevs
and over the plains, receives and
absorbs the moisture that floats in
from the ocean, we have the most
beautiful of blue skies and the
most delightful of warm days and
cool nights. In winter when the
ocean current, sweeps over the
land, clouds and mists of course
obscure the sun, "and when cold
currents of air frqm the mountains
comes down on this misty air from
ocean condensing it, we have rain.
Then the air clears and the sun
shines. It may be ocean air or
the mountain air which drives the
other back over us any day in
winter. If the Orst it is warm and
misty, if the last it is clear and
cool, rarely cold enough for skat
ing. It must be borne in mind
that the Pacific Northwest is made
up of" vast mountain chains with
wonderfully largo valleys interven-
which we are no more accountable ! tween land and ocean currents,
than forthe love of life. All change I" summer when the land-air,
is progress. The more restless the
individual" the more h-i adds to the
power of the spirit of change
that which sends the world along.
borne call it enterprise. Thous
ands of men are thinking where
they will move next. Let them
come to the Northwest, which has
its headquarters in Portland.
Why? A wonderful civilization
has grown and blossomed across
the west. Each new State, or
community, opened, like new flow
ers on a growing tree, lias risen
higher in the branches of civiliza
tion than the last. Each better
than its predecessor thoughso ever
bad in appearance, because it was
last, and; therefore, that must
further onward toward the ulti
mate destiny of man. States have
slumbered sluggishly through a
score of infant years and then
leaped to fullest station in five
more. Kansas, twenty years after
John Brown and Bill Atchison,
added 400,000 souls to its popula
tion in a year. Nebraska ten
years after the Union Pacific, took
to growing at the rate of 25,000
people per month. Minnesota,
Dakota, Colorado and Texas have
found their greatness and Oregon
is at the door. To be here now, or
soon, is to have au opportunity to
reap great advantage.
The rise of a State from two
hundred thousand people to ono
or two million in the course of ten
years is more wonderful than all
the conquests of crowned and sav
age antiquity, and the wealth cre
ated is greater than the riches
wrested from a conquered king
dom. Oregon and the great North
west, after years of inactive wait
ing and silent preparation, now
trembles with the gathered im
pulse which will send it upward in
its turn the latest and the grandest
spire of progress. -It has grown
the slow growth of the germ and
garnered the strength" needful for
age. It can receive and sei at
work a quarter of a million people
next year and tho year after and
the next. The mountain chains
which, like mighty ligatures on
the arm of earth, shut out the rest
less, blood of the times, will soon
be cut .by railroad grades, and,
bounding through these arteries of
modern world life, will come an
irresistibly tide of men, money
force, to swell this country by ten
twenty times its present station.
Even now, like the guests on
board at the launch of a ship, wp
can hear the blows that are knock
ing away the blocks, and feel the
orating of the keel as it takes
weight on the ways. Every breath
of east wind brings tho swell of
powder smoke from the tunnels
which will soon tap the restless
west and let in the flood. It is
ready to' come people by the
thousands. What will they find
The atmosphere, the sun, the sky.
the soil best adapted to the growth
of the principle of progress and
working of the problem of people.
Here is New Eogland with the
climate of France; but the moun
tains are higher, the valleys
wider, the streams are larger and
more clear; tho soil is richer and
deeper, the sky is brighter, the air
more pure and nature herself al
ways better natured. The climate
of 'the Pacific Northwest is as
varied and beautiful as its prair
ies, valleys, hills and mountains.
No country was ever so unjustly
and persistently slandered in re
spect to its climate as Oregon.

ing, in which aro spread great
prairies, or a succession of small
mountains, hills and vallej's. At
the sea coast the air is humid,
away Irom tne coast it is ary.
The effect of tho air currents be
tween sea and land is not the same
in all places nor m all years. Yet
it averages uniform for each loca

It is jirobable that there is no
place in the world from whence a
choice of climate can be so readily
made or so cheaply obtained as
from this city. In the coast coun
ties, a day's journey away, tho
climate of Nova Scotia prevails,

Every m3n in any degree famil

with anomalies at once absurd anil t

the list are protected by prohibi

millions of dollars annually out of
the pockets of American consum
ers for the sole benefit of favored
monopolies that do not employ, all
told, a hundred workingmen.
By way of example, rice is sub
ject at present to a duty of 8.1 per
cent. Diamonds pay only 10 per
cent. Now, will anybody tell us
how the country would be ruined

reduced to half its present cost

"Writers who have described the
grandeur of our country and the
artists who have painted its peaks
and waterfalls have neglected the
broad sweep of the shoulders of
the mountains as thoy rise, swell
above swell to the very clouds.
In the view of the mountains to
the east of us on our first page
there are three peaks which are
perpetually snow capped. The
wonderful rocks and abrupt, tow
ering heights which have given
their impression to all writings of
our mountains, are in the middle
of the picture where it is seen the
Columbia river comes through
them. There are thousands of
feet of perpendicular rock, but on
their tops there is everywhere a
rich, deep soil. The mountains
are rough and rocky only where
they are seamed and cleft by water
courses. On the tops of the hills,
seen beyond tho Columbia, there
are farms from whence the grand
est sunsets of earth may be seen;
and not beauty alonp but thrift is
there. Beyond those .mountains
are the valleys and prairies of
Eastern Oregon and Eastern Wash
ington, and then more mountains
and valleys again. Who could
sum the climate of such a country
in a few words, or mea'sure it with
statistical figures of temperature
and rainfall? The warm stream
of air brought from the- coast of
Southern Asia and thrown upon
crude article than it is sold for in
Europe after being cnrried from
here across the Atlantic. Of
course, scarcely a pound of eopper
is imported here, and the govern
ment consequently derives no rev
enue from the article.
