CHESAUS AND PACIPC COUNTIES.
The following from the Orego
man, though in the main descrip
tive of Chehalis Co., will apply al
most equally as well to Pacific
As common elsewhere all over
western Washington, forests, con
taining cedar, white and .yellow
fir, prevail, with the addition to
ward the ocean of spruce and hem
lock, all of immense proportions,
together with a large extent of
cottonwood, equally large in many
localities, while upon the uncleared
surface of the river valleys and
beavcrdam meadows cottonwood
of smaller growth, alder, vine
maple and elder take entire pos
session. As you approach the
sea, beginning twenty miles from
the Sound, the trees assume in
credible denseness and immense
diameter, rising to an astonishing
highL An expert reported re
cently from twentj to forty mil
lion feet of lumber to single
section GiQ acres. Many speci
mens of yellow fir which I saw
would measure ten feet across and
would yield each twenty thousand
feet. The cedar is very abundant
and especially sound and perfect.
The quality of the fir is remark
able for solidity and compactness
of fibre; the usual rings denoting
yearly growth are entirely invisi
ble u. ordinary siffht, which pecu
liarity ' ?id to extend to fir
grown near the ocean- It is im
possible for me to make &iy esti
mate of the value, present auJ
prospective, of these forests, for
centuries must elapse before they
can be removed by ordinary use.
Lfnt little devastation has occurred
by winds or flames. The growth
is primitive and ages tnust elapse
before many of the trees will reach
their full growth. One sawmill of
75,000 feet capacity has been es
tablished at Hoquium, located at
the mouth of the river on low, re
claimed ground, now perfectly
solid and dry by scientific drain
ing and dyking, not only making
an enduring basis for heavy build
ings, but demonstrating how en
tirely lowlands may be fully re
claimed in a short time by judici
ous management. Mr. Emerson
is entitled to much credit for this
successful manifestation of enter
prise and scientific skill.
There is a mill also at Cosmo
polis, and another has recently
been set up by Mr. Goodell, at
Hima, of large capacity, with all
modern equipments and improve
ments. "When we consider how
great distance can be saved by
sending lumber to the matkets of
the world by Grajj harbor, from
these- forests, in preference to the
?ound, from which they are re
mote, but which lias its own im
mense supply,-east and west, it is
reasonable to conclude that more
manufacturing lumber establish
ments will soon be found there
abouts. There is but little rock, the soil
being loamy, largely impregnated
with iron, and when denuded of
trees and underbrush will be
adapted to agricultural purposes.
The grasses, fruits and vegetables
flourish and all is capable of being
made a good farming country.
Prairies are numerous and many
of them in fertile condition. The
great supply of agricultural and
grazing lands are found upon the
river valleys, which good judges
with whom I conversed estimated
at two thousand .lineal miles in the
entire county, having perhaps an
average width of two or three
miles, I oxamined many of these
bottoms, cleared and uncleared,
and it is safe to state that where
they are cleared and in good culti
vation no better can be found
under the sun for grass, wheat,
rye, flax, barley, oats, vegetables,
and all fruits of the locality. I
lid not learn of the success of
tobacco and broom corn, for no
one could answer my inquiry, but
believe that those plants, onions
and all other exhausting crops can
be pxd ace d abundantly "If the
climate is propitious. Dairying is
tie chief industry now, especially
baftti&nalnng, which in the
future, with cheese, will make that
region as famous for those produc
tions as any of the celebrated
places of the country. The
meadows bordering on the salt
waters bear "tide grass," which is
rank of growth, nutritious in
quality and eagerly consumed by
cattle, who browse upon it from the
10th of October until Springtime
when they are returned in good
condition to upland pastures for
convenience to the dairies. The
butter made there is of the best
quality, and always commands
ready market and advance prices.
Upon lands thus cleared red
clover, timothy, alfalfa and white
clover have irrepressible growth.
A. J. Smith informed me that he
had an mclosure of red clover in
full growth, which he seeded
twenty years ago. In eastern
countries this grass heaves out by
frost in two or three years. But
little of these bottoms are cleared,
and that along the Chehalis, the
remainder being covered with a
dense and almost impenetrable
growth of cottonwood, vine maple,
alder, elder and vines, but the soil
is loamy, light, rich, deep and
inexhaustible, as indicated before.
It seems a desperate task to
undertake its clearance, but one
good hand can slash and fall an
acre m two or three weeks.
When dry it can be fired and
cleared of all the remaining stumps
in a very short time. If a setller
can have ten acres cleared he can
support his family easily from its
productions while engaged in
cj- -ring more, and when half or
all of his homestead is cleared, he
is independent. The enterprise
may seem desperate, but thous
ands of energetic people have
done that work in other states of
ten, with not half so good a result
as can be obtained here. A good
selection, labor, energy and fru
gality will make any man a suc
cess there or in ten thousand oth
er places in Washington Territo
ry, but no indolent, short-sighted,
despondent man should undertake
the experiment, for ho will be un
successful and poor anywhere.
Thousands of our best population
are comfortably rich who came
heft penniless but a few years
back. Gold sands abound at
Gray's Harbor, copper is found on
the mountains, magnetic iron of
the finest quality exists with the
gold sands and elsewhere. Bog
iron and hemctite are deposited
near the Black Hills and coal in
large quantities, also soap stone
and sand stone. The live stock,
horses, cattle, sheep and swine all
thrive and are free from disease i
requiring little or no protection or
feed in winter.
In winter the climate is exceed
ingly mild and free from tempests.
Ice never forms thick enough to
be gathered and the snow fall is
light, lasting but a few hours upon
the ground. Summers are cool
and warm in temperature, thunder
showers and other disturbances be
ing unknown. These characteris
tics prevade the entire sound,
produced by the south winds from
the ocean, modified by the cooling
influences of the snow capped
mountain range and the pine
aroma of the forests and the at
mospheric perturbations and clear
ness affected by the incoming and
out going tides of Puget Sound,
the Georgian gulf and the Pacific.
Good health prevails. Churches
and school houses have been erect
ed and a wcekty journal oi much
ability has been established with
remarkable success. The people
propose to found a college by
their own efforts and outside aid.
I addressed a large assemblage
upon this subject, urging its ex
pediency. The contributions are
liberal and the determination fixed
But the chief feature of that
country is tin great water system
which permeates its entire extent
in every direction; advantages
rarely equaled, never exceeded ui
any portion of the word. There
arc many lakes, large and small,
which ornament localities, filled
with trout and other valuable fish.
Chief of the rivers in importance
is Chehalis, which rises at Black
lake and river, near the Sound,
and runs directly westward in all
its courses about 100 miles, suffi
ciently wide and deep for steamer j
navigation seventy miles from the
ocean. Mr. Smith informed me
that he had ascended the river by
steamer for sixty miles from its
entrance to the bay, thirty years
ago. In many places the water is
from thirty to seventy feet, whilst
the average is ample for vessels
of twenty feet draft forty miles from
the sea. It is a beautiful stream,
winding gracefully through the
evergreens which overhang its
shores, moving slowly and noise
lessly to give its ever flowing trib
utes to the ocean. Rising f:r
away, a hundred miles north in the
Olympic range, by innumerable
streames, the Satsop, the Wy
noocha, the Wiska, the Hoquiam
and the Umtulup, and the Sohun
and the Elk from the south, rush
in fierce, rapid torrents, nearly
equi-distant, about ten miles, and
at right angles, into the Chehalis,
their common highway to the Pa
cific. These lateral streams are
navigable for small craft for some
distance, but are chiefly useful for
booming and shooting timber from
the forests which border upon
their banks, At the mouth of the
river arises Gray's harbor, which is
of triangular shape, fourteen miles
long by ten on the ocean, where it
is narrowed down to an outlet one
mile wide by a sandy spit from the
north and a like projection from
the south. Upon the bar, which
is quite immovable and free from
shifting sands, there is a depth at
mean low tide of twenty-four feet,
with forty at high water. From
that point to the harbor proper
there extends a channel, one mile
or more in width, of thirty or forty
feet depth of water, perpetually
bordered by high .walls of surf
breakers, which never fail to give
warning of the shoals beyond. In
various parts of the bay there is
deep sea soundings, good anchor
age and safe havens, increased and
defended by several small islands
inside the southern pit.
Beyond, upon the south side of
Jones' Point, and at other places
are prominent bluffs with deep
water frontages, most eligible lo
calities for villages and towns.
Peterson's Point, which i& the ex
treme end of the southern penin
sula, is one of the most desirable
of all places I have ever seen for a
seaside summer resort, having an
undulating surface matted with
grass to the very beach, covered
with full-grown Scotch pine trees,
which afford perennial shelter and
shade. Many running streams of
fresh water, soil capable of pro
ducing early and in great perfec
tion, fruit and vegetables, the
grand sea beach of compact sand,
the view of the rolling sea and
sounding surf, the prospect of the
Olympia snow-clad mountains in
the distance all combine to make
that place one of the most desira
ble locations for summer residence
and a commercial city. The pres
ence of so much fresh water in the
harbor excludes the teredo, which,
with other palpable advantages
detailed, will contribute to make
Gray's harbor a most desirable
place for the navy yard at some
time to be located in the waters of
the Pacific coast country north.
I regret that my description is so
lengthy, but it is necessary to a
full description of that great re
gion about which there has been
so much inquiry and of which so
little is known.
I omitted to mention that elk,
bear, deer and smaller fur-bearing
animals irequent the forests in
vast numbers, and that the waters
are alive with salmon, trout, crabs,
oysters, clams and many valuable

It is reported that articles of in
corporation have been filed for an
other logging railway, of still
greater capacity than that which
daily brings its hundreds of thou
sands of feet of timber to tide wa
ter at the head of the Sound. The
new venture is to run from the Co
lumbia river to some point on
Buddis Inlet, and to traverse a
dense timber region in Pacific and
Chehalis counties. It will also
compete with the Northern Pa
cific for the carrying traffic. It
is further reported that Mr. J, li.
Montgomery is backing the en
terprise. 4J n
