Sl'KAKINO to the Oregon Writ
ers' lenguo one. nlfiht recently
at Portland on "Tho Newspaper,"
l Ilfc F. Irvine, editor of tho Oregon
v Journal, said: "Too many people
have tho Idea that Jesus came to
oorth In n silk hat and a frock coat.
Ho did not. Ho came clothed as
tho poor ero clothed. Ho was ono
of the poor, and understood nnd
loved them." This, said Irvine,
was ono of the potent reasons for
tho Krentness of Jesus. Ho pointed
nut that tt likewise was the mission
of tho newspaper to take account of
tho Httlo things of life, tho bit, of
human Interest, and $ene them to
the public In a tangible form. He
"Tho great newspaper Is tho one
that carries not only Important
news of national and Internation
al events, but also the news of
men. women, children nnd the l!t
tlo things and tho glorious things
of life. It Is. after all. theso things.
or wbat we newspaper men call
human Interest.' that reach to the
heart of you and mc. and the great
throbbing mass of people."
lrvlno extolled tho newspaper
ns a public servant In times of war,
and offered to challenge and hurl
back the llo to thoao persons who
Kpenk disparagingly of tho newspa
per and tho newspaper profession.
"Thcro are plenty of purrt true,
Joynl and glorious newspaper men
In this country, and the men who
speaks slightingly ot these mon
and their work does not know what
he Is talking about.

will bo several "aniens" uttered to
thot last assertion.
The town, so runs Its legend, wns
founded In a very modest and unpre-
tcntlous manner on the easterly bank
of tho river about tho year 1S6T,
close to the approach of the present
bridge, by Oco. Nurse, who subse
quently laid out and platted what Is
commonly known as tho original
town-site ot l.lnkvllle. Seventeen
years later to be absolutely exact
on July 10th. 1884, the real, honest-to-Ood
"Old" Llnkvllle, was still on
the easterly bank ot tho river, and
not elsewhere. The town had evident
ly prospered for tho buildings, I., e.,
the Drick store, tho Llnkvlllo hotel,
and old Red houso or Frclzo building
were creditable monuments to that
prosperity. Dctwren the old red house
on the corner ot Main street and
Payne alley, and the Drick store were
some smaller buildings occupied by
Baldwin t Forbes hardware. Forbes'
saloon and Peto Henderson's barber
shop. In tho depression Just cast of
the Llnkvllle hotel was tho livery and
teed stables of J. W, Manning. On the
west side of the river resided tho
Moores, Wlthrowsand Ilrcltcnstctns.
I recall but one other resldenco west
of Center street at that time, viz.
that ot J. P. Roberts and family.
Near the corner of Main and Cen
ter was the post office Wm. A.
Wright. father of Dr. Oeo. I. Wright,
postmaster. Up to that time there
was but a'stngle wagon track leading
from Center street Into tho real town
of Llnkvllle. East ot Center street
there were approximately eleven
dwellings. A large barn stood on the
site of the Jacobs' building at Main
and Sixth streets; on the opposite
corner tho blacksmith shop ot A. D.
Carrlck, and on tho opposite side ot
the street the Horton hotel. On tho
site ot the Central school building
was a small 16 x 20 structure with
one or two of the windows knocked
out and two or three benches scatter
ed about on the outside where Rob
Hunsaker and Marlon Hanks had
thrown them when In rebellion on be
ing admonished by tho teacher thai
unless they got that spelling lesson
thcro would be no vacation that sum
mer. It may be conceded that white
attending school In that little old
school house tho young gentlemen
learned how to bust a bronco, and
rope a maverick. As a matter ot fact
my first sight of Dob Hunsaker was
on the hurricane deck of a weaving
bronco coming right square at mo as
I rounded Into Main street on July
10th, 1884. A little later I had the
pleasure of seeing the samo young
gentleman aboard the Conger colt;
when tho klmble slipped off tho horn
of the saddle, my how that boy did
There was a very flno spring of wa
ter In the center t tho Intersection
ot Soventh and Main streets where tho
town cows and horses wero wont to
slake their thirst; but nover man In
those days. Beginning with 1884,
there was considerable building acti
vity, and the old town build up quite
solidly from the brldgo to Center
street In the next two or tbrco years.
It looked as though Llnkvllle was at
last coming Into Its own, but tho tiro
which occurred In September 1889,
wiped out every vestige of tho old
town from the brldgo to Center
street. Tho building activity mani

Center street to Fifth, which created
a division In Llnkvllle, with Cento
street as tho dead line. That portion
west of Center was dubbed '"Bunch"
town and that easterly, "String"
town. Today there Is a now map from
which old names have been dropped,
