Now York, August tilli, 1897.
Editor Reporter: In compliance witR
your request I will try anti write a few
lines, hoping they may be of interest bi
«orno of my many friends in McMinn
ville and vicinity. . It has been nearly
two monftis since we arrived here, and
during this time we have learned con
siderable of the city and city life, Our
love for Oregon has not diminished with
our experience here, and we will be glad
when the time comes for us tn return.
We suffered considerably from warm
weather during the past few weeks of
our residence here. It was so warm
that a great many deaths occurred every
day from the excessive heat, on ac
count of the narrow streets ami high
buildings which reflect the heat. It is
about 10 degrees warmer in the city
than the weather bureau reports, as they
take the temperature in a tower 300 f >et
high, where they get the benefit of any
breeze there may be, and the raflection
of the sun on the high stone and brick
buildings does not affect them. This is
the reason why there is so much suffer
ing here when the temperature as rei
ported throughout the country does not
appear to Ite so very warm.
It started to rain on July 12th and has
been at it nearly ever since. They call
Oregon the Webfoot state, but it has
rained more here in the past three weeks
than in Oregon in the past six months.
Some of the time it does not rain, but
just pours, ami more water will fall in
one hour than at home in a day. More
over a storm comes.iip very suddenly
and if one is caught out he will soon be
wet through. While a number of people
were in the park a few days ago a
thunderstorm came up very sudden.
There is a large arch in the park, the
floor of which is lower than the surround
ingground. Into this the people went
for protection. The storm was so severe
that they dared uot venture out, and the
arch soon filled with water until it was
waist deep. Some of the people came
near drowning before being rescued by
the park police.
The ono thing which has been im
pressed on my mind more than any-
thing else, is the advantages whiclt tlie
working people in the west have over
those here. The necessaries of life are
double what they are out there, meat
being worth 15 to 25 cents |>er pound,
apples, |>ears and peaches are worth 2 to
3 cents apiece, and other fruits in pro-
portion. The fruit is not good, as it is
picked green to ship and lacks that
sweet juicy flavor that it has when ripen
ing on the trees
l^orything else is
high except clothing and dry goods, and
they are no cheaper, as a rule, than in
the west. Reasonably good board and
lodging costs $7 to $8 per week, and one
can live better in Oregon for one half
that amount. Rents are high and the
laboring people live in tenement houses,
whole families living in two or three
small rooms in buildings from (0 to 20
stories high. More people live in a
single block than there are in McMinn
ville. With the thermometer at ■ ÌW0
degrees and people crowded so thickly irf
these houses, where thè air is foul and
with so little to live on, one can im
agine what they have to endure. A man
can keep a family as well on *1 per day
in Oregon as here on $2 and have more

freedom and pleasure at that. 1 think
if Horace Greeley lived now he would
say to the working man, ‘‘Go weat.”
There are a great many places of
interest where one can go. Among
some that we have taken in, is a ride up
the Hudson river to West Point, where
Uncle Sam trains his soldiers; to Grant’s
monument, also on the Hudson; the
Statue of Liberty, front the top oi which
