steamer Tenino and iu eight hours
were landed at Celilo, a point two
miles lielow Des Chutes landing,
where the Oregon Steam Navigation
Company have already formed the
nucleus of a thriving vilhure.
"The freshets of the past season have
strewn tho banks of the Columbia
with cord wood in abundance, which
commands 10 per cord. The Johu
Day's wood yard is the cheif depot
for fuel. Here we saw two steamers
building, one already launched
owned by Captain tiray at Celilo,
t he other of large dimensions. There
is no doubt wo are far in advance iu
the question of river navigation of

The Dalles, which point, too, is show
ing visible signs of healthy improve
ment ami tho increasing trade to the
mines of tho John Day aud Powder
rivers is destined to make it a point
of commercial import. Whether the
idea entertained by Mr. Newell (Ed
itor W. II. Newell, an early proprietor
of tho Mountaineer) aud other men
at the Dalles, of a direct trade from
San Francisco to The Dalles shall
ever be realized is not so easy to be
determined. The railroad company
have resumed the work of grading and
ballasting and it is the desire of tho
company to have tho cars running
by the Ilrst of May next (18011). The
road bed is prepared for some live or
six miles out from the city aud the
iron track laid for half a mile. My
own com lciions are, that the rail
road eventually is to lie more benefi
cial to Walla ttulla than to The Dalles;
but that the latter is also to derive
much benelit no one will doubt.

steamers, vhiih have the tendoucv
to reduco rates of travel and freight,
was a thing that commercial and
travelling public, were too glad to
see. The t assago from The Dalles to
lJotflaiid was but a dollar. That com
petition on this immense line will bo
fraught with healthy results no one
win doubt. The Oregon Steam Navi
gation company, as tho pioneers on
an tin tested river, do certainly merit
much credit for the bold buzzard they
so successfully made, and merit re

investment and which it will alwuvs

commercial past, and I see no reason
why it should not bo the history of
the commercial future. Just so soon
as capitalists find that putting steam

turn his capital into such a channel.
"The portage of the Cascades is
now made in a brief hour on the

Aif xtra dollar is charged, though if
you prefer it you can walk in nearly
the same time free of cost. This
portage is on tho Oregon side and no
traveler passes over this road without
awarding to Colonel Ruckle every
praise for the bold prosecution of his
project, and no one begrudge him
the ample reward which be is today
receiving for his past labors. It is
to bo hoped that the difficulties be

speedily adjsted, so that the stoam
cars now running on a portiou of the

the two termini of tho portage and
thus reduce the time of travel within

A run of several hours brines us

Portland has been banished. The
large crowd that daily assembles on

West expects to remain here several
months, and if tho railroad up the
valley is constructed will stipt rinleud
the engineering work.
It was given out last week from the
head olllce of the company in Ogdeii
that tho board of directors had decid
ed to build the road up the west side
of the valley, but it seems that no
such ilnal decision bits been made.

The Oregon Lumber Co. owns 20, 0H0

railroad will bo built. Other parties
own largo timber interests iu the up

is considered necessary to bring out
the sawlogs. Driving the river has
not lioen found at all satisfactory.
"We could not think of building
the road merely for the passenger

"Neither could anyone else. lSusiness
will not justify It for years to come.
We figure that tho road will cost be

"A number of feasible routes have
been found. The selection of any
one of those w ill depend a great doiil
on tho cost of securing rights of

It was stated to Mr. Kccles that
some people feared the freight charg
es would be exorbitant, and that the
farmers could not all'ord to patronize
the road after it was built.
"No, no," replied Mr. Kccles,
"we couldn't do anything liko that.
Tho farmers would continue to haul
their fruit and cordwood as they do
now. I am certain it w ill be cheaper
by half for the farmers to ship their
fruit aud hay by the railroad than it
costs them now to haul it w ith teams. "
Kngineer West firmly believes the
railroad will be the making of the
upper part of the valley. "It will
give them an easy meaiia uf trans
portation, " saitl he, "anil will open
up a part of tho valley to settlement

is too far to lutil fruit and other
