The opening: of the Celilo ca nal not only impresses one with the wonderful developments along the Columbia East, bnt a trip down th'j river brings to mind very forciably thewonder "'il developments in the part twe years and the great projects now underway. Leaving Portland one is im pressed with the Columbia high way with its beautiful scenery pverlooking the mighty Colum bia as it slowly winds its way parrying on its waters the larg est ocean steamers, laden with the products of forest, river and farm of the great northwest. The sea wall and municipal docks at Astoria, the hill docks at Flayell and the north and south jetties at the mouth of the Columbia river, all of which are now completed or under con struction at a cost of $11,300,000. While thinking of the wonder ful developments along the Col umbia, one must not lose sight pf the playgrounds of the nprth- west. Three and one-half hours' ride from Portland brings us to Seaside and Gearhart with their miles of paved streets and fine buildings and sewer system, and surrounded by the rivers Wa honna and Necanican, where fishing may be indulged in and the timber to the south affords good hunting. While we have these brilliant views near the ocean, the possibilities and ad vantages are not less brilliant in Central Oregon. Nine months ago when this present European war commenc ed, the very inhabitants of the combating nations themselves were shocked to know that in our present supposedly high state of civilization, the assasina tion of a ruler would in any way involve more than the guilty parties or at most, be brought into the arbitration court, but it seems that civilization has van ished altogether when a combat ant will deliberately prey upon and sink a possenger vessel car rying hundreds of non-uniformed citizens and people of non-combatant powers. Such was the fate of the Lusitania, sounding the death toll nearly equal to that of the Titanic pf two years ago.
