Any one who will take (he trouble to
Tiilt White Bulmou and HiiiKeu will
ood diaoover that our neighbois are
far ftou) being aeleep aud that a de
velopment is takiu place iu them
that la at present having uo parallel
aloLg tbe Columbia river.
Three years ago White Salmon cou
aiated of one or two dwelling houses
and a atoie. Todoy it has a popula
tion of 600 oi 800 and bus business es
tablishments that most any town need
not be ashamed of. The greatest de
velopment has taken place iu the past
year and a halt, or since the an
nouncement that the Portland and
Seattle railrload would behuilt. It now
baa stores arnost of every description
one of which last year did a business
of $58,000; three hotels, modern in
every respect, two b inking establish
ments, newspaper, churches, a school
in whiob there aie over 100 pupils en
rolled with four large well equipped
school rooms and four teachers Dur
ing the year just closed many build
logs have been erected, among them
the one by tbe Odd Fellows, which
baa two itrge stores on the ground
floor and a fine lodge hall on the sec
ond and is supplied w'th everything
needed in tbe way of holding lodge
meetings or entertaining, including a
kitchen. Two other busiue-a places
are not in process of erection and
plana for another on the coiner oppo
site the White Salmon Valley bank
are being considered. In the largest
of tbe buildings which in being con
tar otel a Ih. nitre, equipped with all
the adjuncts necosa'jry tor the pro
duction of tbe average play has been
arranged for.
One of the most important events
for White Salmon w-s the fotmation
recently of a Commercial club. Ibis
organization has taken up the work
of advertising the couutiy and ie is
suing attractive literature telling of
tbe advantages ot climate and soil.
Among tbe possibilities at White Sal
mon are an electrio road to Tiout
Lake and a box factory. A company
to build the roaa has been incorpor
ated and a preliminary survey made.
Stock baa been taken in it, ami it i
understood that if the plan is feasible
that capital for its construction can
be seouied.
At a meeting which was held a few
dayi ago a proposition to erect a box
faotory was discussed and favorably
considered, iruit growers are look
ing forward to tbe time when they
will ship their apples aud strawberries
oat by train and are tiguiing on tbe
manufacture of their own boxes.
Al;bough White Sulmon has been
very taccessful in raising fruit with
out irrigation laud ownei a and grow
ers there have come to the conclusion
tbat it can be improved with use of
water and have orgauized a ditch
company for that purpose. An expert
engineer will be employed to go over
the ground and devise the best plan
for constructing the ditoh and it is
expected that work will beoommenced
tbia summer. Bonds will oe issued to
provide the capital uecesary lor the
enterprise and the ncieage to be irri
gated will be close to 2,000.
An important step in the history of
White Salmon will take place shortly
wbeu ita first city election will be
held. A petition asking for the in
corporation of the town as a city has
been forwarded to the secietaiy of
atate and it ie expected that a charter
will be istued granting permission to
incorporate by April 1. At a nieetiDg
held last week to nominate candidates
for office two tickets were placed in
tbe field, both ot wbicb, however,
were republican. (3. M. W.-lfard re
ceived 10 votes as a candidate for
mayor and J. T. Wyers, sr., bIso re
oeived 10. A. II. Jewett, who was not
an aspirant for tbe office, got three
votea and one other vote was cast for
that office. For couucilmen two tick
eta were also nominated as well as lor
tbe city offices, and friends ot the
various candidatea are now gettiug
toay trying to secure their election.
At Bingen, from a dozen to Hfteen
Dew dwellings and busiuees planes
bare been erected and lotsthore range
in prloe from 1225 to UaOO. T. Suks
dorf, who has control of the townsite,
waa reoentiy oftered the latter figure
for a corner lot near where it is ex
pected tbe atatioo will be located but
refused to sell it at that price- A
Portand real estate man was at Bin
gen last week and offered to buy all
that waa left of the entire townsite at
a figure that Is auid to have been
higher on tbe average than the price
tbe iota are now selling for, but the
offer was refused.
The railioad grade r.t Bingen is
about four feet below the level of the
town on the upper aide, making it
necessary t o build a terraoe. On tbe
lower aide of tbe railroad grade to
ward the river Judge Byrkett baa
erected a huge barn wbiob it ia aaid
be will use for bousing stock. It ia
also rumored tbat be will erect a One
house at Bingen and reaide tbei.
Tbe railroad company property ia 30!
teet wide at Bingen, but it la claimed
that tbe station will be built on land
tbat has not yet been purchased tor
it. Among the sites tbat it ia aaid to
have in view ia tbe hotel property be
longing to Mrs. Hansen. Tbe town
baa a moat decided appearance tbat
there ia something doingand presenta
a far different aspeot than it did a
year ago.
New Postofllce Haling.
A new ruling baa been made by tbe
postoffioe department in rtgard to tbe
date tor notifying box rentera when
payment ia due. Tbe old plan waa to
place the notice carda in the roxea on
tbe first of tbe month and if tbe rent
waa not paid by the 10th to declare
tbe box vacant. Tbe new ruling pn
videa tbat cards must be placed iq tbe
boxes on the 20th ot the month and if
the rent is not paid by the 1st, to de
clare tbe box vacant aud rent it. Tbe
next payment ia doe on tbe 1st of
April, so that tbose holding boxes
will be notified on March 20tb.

the snow line. Patties are now cut
