The Dalles Chronicle recently pub

Mrs. C. J. Crandall, who is making a
study of the early history of Oregon;
Talk of again dividing Wasco county
causes one to ask how large was the
original old Wasco, veil called the
Mother ot Counties? Fitly tine years
ttgo, the 1 It ti day of January, iN.11. the
territorial legi.-latttm created Wn-co
county, consisting of all the territory
of Oregon east of the Cascade range.

near the South Pas.-, through which
was the old emigrant road ; thence
west on the 4A1 degree to the Cascade :
mountains, having for the southern j
boundary part ot Wyoming. Utah,
Nevada and the Eastern half of Noith-1

county remained this great size, until
the admission of Oregon to the Stale

Not only are the building far ad

quite unlike its predefosror in that
it will combine with its broad scope
the iiiea of compactness, without

tains, will celebiuto the lnuth annher
sury of the exploration of the Oregon
country by an expedition commanded
by Captains Mcrriwothor Louis and
William Clark, and planned by Presi
dent Jellerson. The sentimi nl which
inspires the people of the Pacific
northwest in the preparation of this
exposition is one in which every
American must shine. The result ol
this expedition, the acquisition of
the great Oregon country by right of
of discovery, extended our frontier to
the Pacific ocean, adding a vast and
I rich torriorv to our domain. It was
one of the direct causes of the acqui
sition of California and tho subsequ
ent acquisitions of Alaska, Hawaii,
Guam, and the Philippines are relat
ed to it.
The beauty of the exposition site
and the superb view to bo had from
I it, coupled w ith Ihe artistic grace of
the building m the style ol the Span
ish leiiaissance, will be tin agreeable
surprise to all thuiors. Netting at

est mere ever enclosed within an ex
position fence, which is separated
from the Willamette river by a nar
row strip of laud. The exposition
grounds are made up of hill and dale,
and in one portou a natural park of
trees and snrubs affords an oppor
tunity for landscape work of a most
attractive character. In the arrange
ment of the buildings thorough cou
sideraton has been given to the con
venience of the visitors ami the at
tainment of a rich aud beautiful
architectural effect. The niaiti group
of exhibit palaces consisting of eight

straight line with their short sides fac

state, territorial and other minor pa

in w hich the executive ofticeH of the
fair are located, stands at one end of
the ornate colouade entrance, the
main gateway to the grounds.
On the j ou insula in the center of

an imposing govern tnent building
w ith towers each 260 feet high, is in
course of construction, beside tho
main building there are several minor

fisheries, and irrigation pavilions and
the life saving station.
All the main exposition structure

which is a true Americeu type, being
constructed of hugo legs in their vir

of two wide avenues, between which
are spacious sunken gardens. Lake-

ground leading to the lake and here is
the grand stairway, Hanked ou either

situated upon an ornate bridgo, wdiit h
spans the lake and connects the main
land with the peninsula. With the un
rivaled water facilities thus attorded
much attention will lie directed to
concessions for aquatic features.
Tlie railroads tiave made exception
