HOOD RIVER GLACIER, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1904.
The following article tn written by
Wallw Nash for th annus) fair edition
of the Northwest Rural Spirit:
"We Oregonians are to well satisfied
with our own state, ita charms in fin
ery, climate, sail, opportunities and so
ciety, taoiat anntge are so laminar
to ua that we forget to think what im
pressions Oregon makes on a newcomer.
And vet we are all set on giving invita
tions, and when we meet, after weeks
of preparation and advice from ail the
tperts we mi ft get hold of, to form an
Urefon' uevewpmeru tMgne, ne "rm
we can do is to Induce all our fellow
citizens to join the circle and invite, in
vite, and still more widely invite.
"But general invitation don't go verv
far in this world. In private life we al
ways disregard aa a mere polite form of
words the common expressions, 'We
shall be glad to see you,' 'I hope you
will cal , and to on. But if you have a
vacant bit of land near you in country
or city , and if it it a matter of consequence
to you to get neighbors, and good ones,
too, how different yon set about it. No
feneral -invkatioM to Dick, Tom and
tarry now You rtop to think, and
take counsel together, what the induce
ment! are to the people you want to
come and settle by you.
"Let ua apply simitar rules to our
selves at agents for all of Oregon, out
side of the little, so little, bit of it we
may one of mown, rtrst, our descrip
tion ibm be- absolutely truthful not
overdrawn. It is not the exceptional
yield of HO bushels, or evea U3 bnshel
of wheat to the acre en some favored
spot (such aa we heard of from one of
our Eastern Oregon friends at that same
Development league meeting), but the
general average of 25 bushels to the acre
on the ordinary farm, rising to 45 bush- j
els on the selected high priced hind, j
which it is both honctt and safe to cir
culate about those northeabtcrn Oregon
counties. The strict truth is good
enough for our vleiters who euine from
150 to 75 land, yielding up to 20 bush
els of wheat per acre in good years. If
our newcomer can double his acreage
and corni within a little of doubling hia
product (or the price of each acre he
sells in the state he Is leaving, he will
not find fault.
And when you add to (he strictly
bueineas attraction that he will leave
behind him thft hllzfcard, the tornado,
the early frosta, the mouths of stock
housing arid feeding, the poor ami scanty
water, your invitation begins to count
People in the East have got a notion
hard to get rid of that the market prices
for our product are so far below theirs.
Let ua not forgot, then, to tell what we
get for our wheat. I think it is a telling
point that, after allowing a liberal cost,
Including plowing, harrowing, seeding,
harvesting, sacking and taking to mar
ket and depot, and after including in
this cost an allowance for interest on a
reasonable pu rebate price (say $17.50
per acre for the farm and about $800 for
plant, outfit and implements), we ex
pect to net about 25 cents bushel.
"Let It be known alto that in these
wheat regions we are generally still in
bondage to the summer-fallowing sys
tem which keepa half the wheat land
out of crop every year. liut forget not
to say (hat field peas and leguminous
plants generally thrive well, and that

"Bomary of our newcomers are used to
clear skiea and wide horizons that the
hilla aad woodlands of Westera Oregon
seem to confine and shut them in,
"But most of these newcomers have
bought them through tickets on which
they em travel up to the northeast cor
ner ol Oregon, and then along its north
ern edge to Portland, before tlmy turn
south through the Willamette and
Kogue River valleys to our southern
boundary. They have to pass through
the fruit regions, though, and in Hood
River we have a record of how a district

already ventured the move to the North
west, been well used, have voritled what

friends and neighbors to join them.
The beat advertisement is to see sold in
distant states, even across continent

"When our visitors reach Portland,
we know what impression they each
and all receive. The trouble with the
Portlanders Ib that they don't see them
selves and their city aa others see them.
It takes a visitor to open up about the
beautiful location of the city, its solid
and prosperous look, the traltlo in its
streets, the costly buildings, the quickly
passing and ever-crowded street cars,
the lovely parka, the exposition ground
only now beginning to show their beau
ties, the broad river courses, above
bridge, with the bustling steainlxiats,
and the tall masti and rigging of the big
ships cutting the skyline below. The
visitor takes his car ridea north, south
and east The l'ortlander generally
confines his travel to the one route by
which he comes to and from his daily
work. So we are hardly alive to the
growth and attractiveness of our own
city, in every direction.
"Of course, business chances abound,
with so great a territory to draw on.
with the hitherto unoccupied portion! of
me staie lining rapidly irom so many

with the enormous forests occupying so
large a proportion of the state being en
tered by railroad, logging road and
water transportation, with the dairy in
dustry spreading over our western coun
ties, with the Slock industries offering
0 well nigh unrivaled chances, with the
largest attera Oregon wheat crop that
hat eve been harvested, how can it be
that the eity on which ttiese various
streams of industry converge should not
grow and prosper?
"Krom Portland our visitor, if he is
wite and has time for it, goes by the
fast Side or main line of the Honthern
Pacific past Oregon City and Hnlem to

million acres, 100,000 people in the
towns ami 11X1,000 more on the farms,
and room enough for four times that

acres that will not support a family in

river from end to end, a system of elec
tric roads begun, colleges, schools,
churches, rural free delivery, telephones

which live stock and its products uretlie
main sources of levenue. Here are a
few condensed fact which never fail to
appeal to the newcomer.

"The newcomer must have n few
words on Oregon hops. Through the
Willamette valley, and indeed all over
Southern Oreg hops are an important
and very lucrative crop. Ui'til recently
the river bottom lands were chosen, but
now the hop yard has spread on to the
uplands, and it is a mutter of challenge
and dispu'e under what conditions the
best hops are raised. The cost of rais
ing hops and putting them on the mar
ket ia stated at H cents a pound. For
the last year or two the prices have
ranged between 20 and 26 cents pur
pound. The yield per acre varies be
tween lOiH) and 2000 pounds. Ample
room, you see, for the maxim of striving
for the best to have full play.
Southern Oregon disputes with Hood
River the supremacy in fruit. The ap
ples from Medford district are quoted at
parallel prices in the world's market
with ttie flood River product. Peaches,
melons and grapes are ulso raised there
in great beauty and abundance.
"Hpace is filled, but the attractions of
Oregon to the newcomer barely sketched.
"Although prices of Oregon lands are
on the up grade, yet good farms a few
miles from town and railroad can still
tie had at about $20 per acre for the
larger sort and at prices at from $:I0 to
$10 per acre for farms from 40 to 100
acres. Of course, fancy places closer to
town and railroad are higher priced
very exceptionally good ones rising to
$00 per acre."
In Hie Yakima Hop Fields.
Miss Olive I'helps writes to the ('la
cier from the hop fields at Tampico,
Wash., inclosing a sample hop three
inches in length, and says of the trip to
the Yakima valley :
"Monday morning we crossed the Co
lumbia on Mr. Dean's scow. We passed
through White Salmon anil on to the
falls, where we ate dinner. The tiist
night we camped one milo from Gilmer.
We slept with the heavens for a roof
and the stars for lights.
"Next day we ate dinner about two
miles from Ulonwood. There were about
50 in the crowd, and when wecanipid
it looked like our strawberry fields.
"We Maul all night at the bridge that
spans the Klickitat river. The next
night we camped at Goldcndalc ami
took in the town by moonlight. Next
day by noon we were on the border of
the Indian reservation. After eating
dinner we started down what is called
the Sottas canyon. That night we camp
ed on the "red man's" territory. After
crossing what was once known as the
Desert, but is now farming land, we
came to a little town called Wapato,
where we remained all night.
"The next day we drove to Mr. Kg-
lin's hop fields, where we intend to go
to work. The next day being Minday

Road matters and the payment of

allowed for Hood River and two for
Mosicr, savs Commissioner llibhard.
The Mails granted to the Hood River
petitioners are the Winnns road, which
ib to begin at Jasper Wickluim's and
continue up the west hunk of Hood

from the Wood place in the Udell dist

The following description of the Co
lumbia river appeared in the Chicago
Record-Herald from the pen of 8. Glen
Aridriis, the railroad editor of that pa
per, who visited Hood River last July,
in company with Rinaldo M. Hall of
theO. R. & N:
If the Columbia River were nearer the
center of population it would nndoutably
become the annual Mecca of a countless
hoard of tourists, and its banka for more
than 100 miles would lie dotted with the
homes of pleasure seeking millionairs
and with fashionable resorts.
Cradled, asits most picturesque portion
is, among the grandest mountains of the
Pacific Northwest, tucked away in a lit
tle corner of a world of magnificent dis
tances, the Columbia, like the Yellow
stone National Park, is neglected by all
but a very few Americans. Kver since
Captain Jtobert Gray, standing on the
deck of his brig Columbia on a beautiful
May morning in 1792, discovered fl great
stream pouring more than 1,500,000
cubic feet of water jwr second into the
PaciHc,the praises of the Columbia have
been sung by poet and depicted by artist.
Famous in many worlds for its matchless
scenery, it bus been somewhat neglected
An adequate description of the beau
ties of the Columbia from Celilo Fulls
to the C'ty of Portland is Impossible,
fur language cannot reproduce the pic
tures there painted by the hand of
mil lire, This highw ay of nature, which
has seared its way completely through
an apparently impassible mountain
range; greater st its mouth than the
Mississippi or the St. Lawrence; second
in size only to the Father of Waters, has
become a dominant factor in the social
economy of the Pacific Northwest. No
commercialism, however.eau ever efface
its not m a 1 beauties nor the magnificence
of the endless panoramas it discloses.
Comparisons are odious, so I shall
not say the Hudson does not compare
w ith the Columbia, which hat a beauty
and charm all its own. The beauty of
the Columbia is so distinctive as to be
wholly sui generis To See the Columbia
properly it is necessary to take the
train from Portland to The DbIIcs and
muke the return Hp by boat or reverse
the order. For more than 200 miles the
railroad follows closely the bank of the
river, and there is scarcely a foot of
the way which is not full of interest.
For miles the railroad is a triumph of
engineering skill, for it clings to the
sides of precipitous cliffs, burrows
through basalt rocks,conqners the wind
driven mountains of sand and defies the
encroachments of raging torrents of
From The Dalles to Portland is 88
miles an entire day's journey by boat,
a day during every moment of which
the eye is filled with Nature's best scen
ic gifts. At The Dalles the river was
unable to carve a respectable opening,
and is jammed between walls not more
than (10 yards apart at the narrrowest
place and extending sheer down to un
known but great dopth. The mighty
force causing the eroion must have
been beyond conception to have cut a
pathway perhaps hundreds, mayhap
thousands, of feet deep into the flinty
basalt rock of the mountains. Except
ing at flood time Celilo fulls, 12 miles
aliove.are of great beauty. When, how
ever, the snows of winter licgin to suc
cump to the effect of a summer sun and
the water comes tumbling and roaring
down the mountain sides, leaving deep
welts and scars, the scene at The Dalles
changes. In fact the enormous volume
of water, causing a rise of from 40 to 00
feet in the river, totally obliterates the
fulls, and transforms them into seethim'
and lioiliiig rapids. Then it is that the
waters of the Columbia seek the reserve
channels, which during other flood limes
have been worn through the rocks, and
mountains of water go tumbling and
roaring through a great expanse of rocky
gorges. The scene at The Dallesduring
the Hood time is tremendous in its
grandeur, and is awe-inspiring. A
thousand whirlpools, swirling mael
stroms of seething, foaming waters,
writhe plunge and dash themselves
against the great fields of volcanic rocks
unt il they are beaten back only to plunge
anew against other harrers and then
finally to find their way to the peaceful
F'roin The Dalles to the Pacific every
mile of the Columbia is rich in history
and legend, the latter throwing its glam
our around almost every peak anil crag.
Hood River, 20 miles west of The DhIIch,
is the gateway to a succession of Colum
bia panoramas. From this point on the
Isiat winds back and forth from side to
sidu seeking the little towns pictnr
esquoly nestled in the canyons along the
river's banks. The few combination
freight bouts on the tipper Columbia are
of scarcely more than 500 tons capacity,
and one of them glories in the name
"Regulator," given because it was
planned to be a regulator of railroad
From Hood River to Portland the
the traveler is never lieyond the view of
some snowcapped peak, unless it be
when the bout glides along between
huge precipices which arise on either
side from a few hundred to more than
4000 fd't, and which are as a rule cov
ered with the noble larch or sweet
scented pine. The formations on either
side come into view almost faster than
the eye can comprehend them. On the
Oregon side tliere is the Shell Rock
mountain, opposite to which is Wind
River mountain, rising nearly 1200 feet
alsive the river's edge, ami about which
the winds fr m the four quarters con
stantly hold high revel. The liend in
the river on the Washington side is the
site of the old block house where Phil
Sheridan fought his first battle with the
Passing through Cascade Ixieks, there
comes five miles of excitement, while
the bout shoots the rapids many times,
barely escaping impalement upon the
jagged rocks which poke their noses
above the swirling waters, lielow the
rapids stand the abutmentsof the Bridge
of the Gods. Once upon a time, so
goes the Indian legend, the abutments
supported a natural bridge. One dav a
lira vo from tke Washington side, while
hunting on the Oregon side, fell in love
with und married a maiden. As they
were returning thev were pursued, but
the brave was much favored of the gods,
who caused tho bridge to fall, precipi
tating the pursuers into the river, there
by creating the rapids, which obstructed
navigation until the construction of the
locks. Castle Itock, a circular formation
nearly M) feet high, was formerly a
lookout' station for the Indians, and was
but recently scaled by a white man. St.

trip is the view one gets on a clear dayi
as the boat turns into the broad Wil

stern come in full view eight peaks
which poke their eternally snowy noses
into the clouds from 11,000 to nearly
15,000 feet. First Rainier master senti
