Take The Reporter and Get the News
On the 20th of September Mrs. Hun
saker and I left Portland for a ishort stay
east of the Rocky mountains. After four
days run we arrived at Omaha, where
we remained five days , taking in the
city and the international exposition,
which well compensated ub for the time
and expense. All the exhibits are fine.
Each state made excellent showings of
some one product particular to its cli
mate and soil. Texas and other south
ern states gave unmistakable evidence
that “cotton is king,” while Kansas,
Nebraska and other northwestern states
exhibited corn as the ruling power in
their localities. Colorado's chief exhibit
was the ores, while other states also had
fine specimens of ores. Oregon is well
represented by a fair exhibit of our ce
reals, minerals, timbers, lumber and
vegetables, but our fruits are not doing
us justice. The greater portion of our
fruits were stale, having been too long
on exhibition, and fresh fruits were great
ly needed to take the place of the old.
This done, we can boast of our exhibit
all along the line. While at £>maha we
visited the stock yards, where they claim
to feed daily 10,060 head of cattle, and
as many sheep and hogs. These yards
are well worth a visit by anyone who has
never witnessed such an exhibition of
stock as they have here.
From Omaha we visited Hamburg, la,
where I met four cousins, two of w hom I
had met in my childhood, 54 years since,
We spent pleasantly t ight days in this
vicinity, preaching several days in a re
vival meeting that was in progress when
we arrived. Before leaving here we were
fully convinced that they are subject to
more frequent and sudden changes in
climate and temperature than we are in
Oregon—one da}’ hot enough to fry the
oil out of a man in the shade, the next
day have to wear hie overcoat. We left
Hamburg on the 7th for this place, com
ing by way of St. Joseph. There we spent
six hours in lookingover thecity, a place 1
passed through in ’44, when it was but a
very small village; now it numbers 75,-
000. It is beautiful for situation, and a
lovely city, in-fact, the most lovely we
have seen this side of the Rocky moun
tains. Since coming to this place we
have enjoyed the privilege of a visit to
the home of my childhood, and a drink
of water from the old spring, and also to
see the old “graveyard,” where some of
the family were buried 53 years since, all
of which scenery was, to some extent, fa
miliar. The creek, the directions, etc,,
were perfectly familiar, but we found but
one person in the community who was re
siding there when we went away. She
then was a young lady of 20, now an
aged woman of 72, the very picture of
her mother when I was a boy of 13 sun -
The Yamhill Locke.
Congressman Thos. H. Tongue came
up to McMinnville Tuesday evening, and
Wednesday morning, accompanied by a
number of citizens from here, who were
joined by others from Lafayette, visited
the Yamhill locks. Mr. Tongue has ta
ken a live interest in the accomplish
ment of this improvement, as indeed he
has in every public enterprise in his dis
trict and state, and in order to lie thor
oughly informed in regard to the progress
of the work, made it a point to visit the
locks in person. A person cannot fully
appreciate the magnitude of this enter
prise until he has seen it with his own
eyes. Having witnessed it, he can com
prehend the necessity for its apparently
slow progress. The work accomplished
up to this date involved the deepening of
the channel of the river to carry the wa
ter to one side; the erection of a coffer
dam about the space occupied by the
locks, the driving of piling for a founda
tion, upon which rests a superstructure
of wood and concrete 21 inches in thick
ness. All this has been done, and the
workmen are now engaged u[>on the
side walls, which are also of concrete.
These walls will be 270 feet long, and 26
feet high, with an intervening channel
40 feet wide and gates at the upper and
lower ends. The wall against the left
bank will be 12 feet wide at the base, ta
pering to 8 feet at the top; the one fac
ing the river will be uniformly 12 feet.
At the rate of progress now being made
it is estimated by the civil engineer in
charge that 30 days will be required to
complete the side walls and twice that
time to finish the locks. About 1(M) men
are employed, and two steamers are en
gaged in towing gravel barges from the
Willamette. The magnitude of the con
crete work can be judged from the state
ment that 7000 barrels of cement are re

•‘When you are sick, what you like
best is to be chosen for a medicine in the
first place; what experience tells you is
best, to be chosen in the second place;
what reason (i. e., theory) says is best,
to be chosen in the last place. But if
you can get Dr. Inclination, Dr. Experi
ence and Dr. Reason to bold a consulta
tion together, they will give you the best
advice that can be taken.”

Oregon is.uow connected by telephone
with California. The work of stretching
the wires was completed Friday, and
several test messages were sent, showing
the wiresfto be perfect. Yesterday a cir
cuit was established between Spokane
and San Francisco, a distance of 1300
miles, and conversation was carried on
as distinctly as though the distance was
a mile. Continuous circuits will be es
tablished this week between Spokane
and San Diego, a distance of 2000 miles.
In the construction of the new line,
there has been employed copper wires
weighing 810 pounds to the mile—the
same weight and carrying capacity as
the line between New York and Chicago,
which haB been considered the best tele
phone line ever built in the world. In
some respects the new Pacific coast line
will be even superior to it.
Tueeday the line was open for regular
business. The minimum rate between
Portland and San Francisco will be 75
cents. The minimum rate between
Chicago and New York is $10, but this
is for five minutes’ conversation. It will
be the policy of the Sunset Company to
eucourage short conversations, hence the
low rate. The tariff for one minute’s
conversation is $2.25, and 5 cents for
every two seconds thereafter.
Our spelling match will come off a
week from Friday.
