Letter from C. A. Harp. L&Ugeiie,
Tre following letter from Mr. C. A.
Harp, of Stockton, Cal., is of great in
terest to the people of Junction, and
should be given the considration it de
serves. There is not the least dcubt
but what if this project was pushed to
completion, a saw mill would be imme
diately located here, followed by othr
enterprises, and the town would double
in popa'ation aud amoant of business
transacted in no time, comparatively
Stocktox, Cal., Feb. f, 100 1.
Editor Bclletix, Junction City:
Pear Sik Confirming my verbal
agreement to write for you a eboit ar
ticle regarding tho water ditch from a
point on the Willamette River, near the
mouth of the McKenzia River, through
the chain of lakes to Junction City, I
w ish to state that during my residence
in your city, several of us made up a
sum of money to hire Mr. Collier, of
Eugene, to go over tho proposed ditch
line; which he did, and reported the
project a feasible one in part. How
ever, we were figuring on the ditch as a
power proposition as well as to float
logs or lumber down, while there is,
as I remember, about 23 feet fall from
the jioint where water would bo taktn
from the Willamette River to Junction
City. However, the only fall for power
purjwses that can be figured on is from
the lower end of the last lake, near
Junction City, and tho fall from the
1 ike to the south line of the city is about
eight feet, and, deducting the depth of
your ditch from thin fall, it would leave
not more than five feet, possibly less
Then to secure any fall of avahie the tail
race would have to be several feet deep
Either this, or the lakes would have to
l levied so as to raise water higher in
After several years' reflection on the
matter ana loiiowirg along tun lines
f "iiid to be most practical by others, I
would recommend that the question of
trying to eeCttre power from the ditch
,i eliminated. I do not hesitate to say
that I believe the ditch, if constructed,
simply to be used as a ditch to float logs,
lumber or woo i down to your city, would
be of sufficient bencfmto you tojuotify
the expenditure of five times what the
linen w in cost, i ii'j fiitcii can lie cneat)-
iy constructed if the powej question is
eliminated and a syttein for handling
lo.'s and lumber can be put in that will
yive your city even greater advantages
than you would have ii located in tint
iniilt of the timber? The land slopes
toward the streams, and you can get
logs into a stream when it "would be
very expensive to g:t them out and
hauled to a f-aw mill. As this ditch
would leave the river at n point below
the mouth if the McKcnzio river, your
city would have access to that entire,
timber section for less than $10,000,
while it has cost the Booth-Kelly Lum
ber Company $200,0000 or p)0,000 to
get. into one littlo valley; and therein
no doubt but if you had the ditch con
structed yon could cut logs side by side
and you could get your logs to your mill
one third Wan than Booth-Kelly, even
though their mill is only a short distance
away. Nature has been over-indulgent
to yonr city. She has left a low depres
sion and clearly marked the course of a
u'reat commercial highway into your
citv. She has don more. She has
even formed a number of great storage
basins where millions of feet of los can
he stored in fiafety, land-locked and out
of all danger Could nature do more?
Could you ask more? Wish tho ditch
constructed, lumber can be hard led
cheaper than any place in the Valley,
and this will crfite a demand for mill
locetioits Build the ditch and your
city will Immediately jump to the front
by leaps and bounds.
