LANE COUNTY'S SKA PORT.
Abetter Right to the Point in San
The following letter taken from
Sun Francisco Hullctin. written
bv C. E. Harwood a well known
educator of Oregon who resides a
few miles from Florence, is di -
rectly to the point, and is sure to
attract the attention of people in-
terested in the resources of the
Willamette and Siuslaw valleys.

matter, I wish to submit, tlirougli
the Bulletin, a few facts which will
probably be of interest to the busi-
ness men of San Francisco.
Shippers and others interested in
this trade realize that vessels of
sufficient draft to handle the freight
to and from the Willamette valley
cannot and never can safely cross
the Yaquina bar. This fact is also
well known to the engineers who

Build'ng jetties will not deepen a .
, , , r r i
channel through a reef of rocks.
This is, without doubt, the reason
the Yaquina bay item was rejected
in the last congress. The Yaquina
bar is as good today as it will ever
be, besides a plentiful lack of water
inside the bay makes it a very
poor harbor. The sooner these
- . ..,ii i I
facts aie generally known the
better it will be for all those who
want to share in the trade with the
The object of this article is to
correct a seemingly general im
pression that the Yaquina route is
the only short route to the valley.
The real gateway through which
all that commerce will eventually
pass is forty miles nearer to San
Francisco, through the Siuslaw
bay. This is a sand bar with five
fathoms of water inside. There
has been $100,000 expended upon
the Siuslaw bar, and it now has a
better channel than Yaquina.
When the present appropriation of
$30,000 is added it will be safe for
vessels of twelve to fifteen feet
The entire estimated cost of the
work on the Siuslaw is $750,000,
and when completed it will be the
best harbor from San Francisco to
Yaquina has the present ad
vantage of having a railroad already
built. But this difficulty can and
probably will be soon overcome, as
there is a scheme on foot to build
an electric road from Eugene to
Siuslaw bay, a proposition which
would pay immense dividends.
The export shipments of Doug
las county for 1898, as given by C.
H. Markham, general freight agent
for the Southern Pacific Company,
was 17,640 tons. Take this as an
average, the exports from thejeight
counties which would find an out
let through the Siuslaw would be
The shipping interests and
.boards of trade of San Francisco
might also do well to note the fact
that there are unlimited resources
immediately tributary to Siuslaw.
That there is the finest body ol
spruce and fir timber on the Pa
cific coast, that there are mountains
'of good building rock on tide
water, and that there is the best
facilities for shipbuilding, asshown
in the fine steam schooner Luellu,
which San Francisco was only too
willing to claim as her own pro
duct arc all worthy of note,
With a railroad from Eugene to
Siuslaw bay, n distance of sixty
miles, all the freight of the Will-
amctte valley would go direct to
'San Francisco instead of going
through Portland and thereby
doubling the distance and the cost.

Considerable petition work has been

endeavored to maintain the crusade

securing sermons and union

Creswell has secured many siu'iiatures

The tobacco habit is so prevalent nnd
its influence on the body as shown in
the late examinations oi candidates for
admission to the army, hint aroused
more than usual interest on the subject
of narcotics. During the last ten vcars
Italy lias lowered the physical standard
of her army and France in the same
period has cut her standard twice.
These are wine drinking and smoking
nations, and evidently the natural
efTect of these poisons, after generations 1
of use, is being shown by a deterivated ,

A model mother meeting conducted
by Mrs. L. II. Johnson of Eugene was
tho closing feature of the nfternoon
session. Tho subject was "Obedience
in the Homo" and tho papers and dis
cussions were of great interest The
thought emphasized was "Early obedi
ence in tho home secures tho highest
welfare of the child and is the basis of
obedience to, and reverence for all law."
On the evening of tho 18th n suffbrago
contestwas held in tho Christian church.
A largo audience greeted the ladies and
close attention was given the papers
presented. Tho question is a very live
one and tho year before us will bo full of
tho diflcusion of this topic. It is sub
mitted that an experienced mother in
tho war department would havo known
better than to handicap our soldiers in
Cuba with heavy flannels and canned
roast beef !
