What They Decided,
The fish commissioners have de
cided that no salmon of any kind or
description shall be caught during
the close season. It has been the
custom hitherto to fish for, salmon
at Oregon City during March and it
was learned yesterday, says Friday's
News, that parties were catching
fish there at present. To-day Mr.
Thompson will leave for Oregon
City to investigate the matter, and
if on inquiry it is,, found that the
law-has been violated the parties
will be arrested And prosecuted.
Governor Pe'nnoyetfs attention has
been called to the Oregon City
matter and it is probable that he,
too, will look into it and give it his
The fish commissioners think that
express companies and their agents
are as much interested In enforcing
the fish law as any other portion of
the community Is, for the reason
that if the salmon become extinct
through ceaseless fishing, it means
loss to the express companies. The
fish commissioners, therefore, think
that the express peoplo should
refuse to carry salmon during the
present month. It is against the
law to catch the fish, and the ex
press companies should, therefore,
refuse to transport them for this
rpnsrm nlone. if no other existed. If
this was done It would go a long way
towards preventing illegal fishing.
Mr. Thompson stated that the law
is generally being well observed.
A few complaints were made about
parties fishing on the lower Colum
bia but those who "filed them M'ero
in no case willing to swear out
complaints for the reason that the
information came to them second
handed. Subscribe for the Journal.
LANDS AND HOMES.
In the Garden Spot of the
Fertility of Soil, Salubrity of Climate, Whole
some Water, Excellent Timber and
Marlpn county is situated in the
heart of the magnificent "Willamette
valley, the central gem in the clus
ter of rich counties that form that
princely domain, aud Is the banner
commonwealth of the great north
west In all the essentials that go to
wards making it a profitable abiding
place, and a home for the thrifty
farmer, the cunning artisan and the
Rich in Its agricultural resources,
in Its cultivated and uncultivated
lands, in its water powers, and
minerals; rich in its colleges and
schools of learning, and with a
climate unsurpassed for Its salubrity,
it presents to the Immigrant from
the overcrowded btates, whore cold
winters and hot summon, with
terrible cyclones, prevail, who
comes to the coast with some
means, advantages that no other
county In Oregon possesses.
Much has been written of this
western country that requires a
stretch of the imagination to com
prehend, and numerous complaints
are heard from the class who have
been misled by them, so in this
brief sketcli the writer desires to
avoid exageration as to its present
and prospective advantages, asking
those in the east into whose hands
this may fall particularly those
who have their eyes directed towards
this coast to peruse It carefully,
feeling that It is not written to lure
immigrants within Its borders, but
onlv as a truthful discretion of a
land which, if it does not "How
milk and honey," contains within
its bosom wealth and resources equal
to any other country on the Pacific
side of the Rocky mountains.
Marlon county is bounded on the
north by the Willamette river and
Butte creek which separates It from
Clackamas county; on the east by
Clackamas county and the Cascade
mountains, which separate It from
Wnsno eeuntv: on the south by the
Santiam river and the north fork of
the Santiam, separating it irom
liinn couuty.andoil the west by the
The county contains, including
valley, prairie and mountain lands,
about 000,000 acres.
There are two main divisions, the
mountain and the valley. The
latter extends from the Willamette
rivfr to the foot of the Cascade
mountains, a distance of about fif
The mountainous portion contains
some fourteen townships of mostly
unsurveyed land; lying in a strip
twelve miles north aud south by
forty miles east and west, and com
prises all classes of land, from rich
narrow valleys in the passes, up
through all the grades of rolling,
hilly and broken, to that of rock
bound canyons and inaccessible
craggy peaks. It is generally heavily
timbered, and In the near future
will be valuable for its lumber sup-'
nlies. These hills and mountains
afford a wonderful summer range
for stock, and many ot tne more en
terprising farmers are availing them
selves of this opportunity, and when
the cold frosts of autumn approach,
thi srnek are broucrht out to fresh
pastures, thus enabling them to sur
vive the winter storms with little
A decided advantage Marion coun
ty has over many others Is the di
versified farming interest thafc-.can
be carried on throught 'the entire
year; notwithstanding this Isiiwet
climate during the winter months,
the uplands are seldom too wet to
work, and long before the prairie
farmers are through with their seed
ing, the hill farmer Is preparing for
his summer work. And yet the
low lands are much preferred by
many; the yield per acre is generally
greater, and perhaps less labor is re
quired to place the soil in proper
condition for crops; and then should
the season prove dry, the bottom
lands are sure to bring the best
crops. No better farming land can
be found In the United States than
that on the noted Howell prairie,
French prairie, Santiam prairie and
Salem prairie. The soil of these are
wonderfully productive. With good
cultivation, forty bushels of wheat
and sixty of oats per acre can be
FACILITIES FOR MARKET.
The Willamette river, with two
lines of railroad running the entire
length of the county from north to
south, with the Oregon Pacific road
crossing the southeast corner of the
county, affords ample facilities to
reach a market in any direction.
Is the capital of the state and
county seat of Marion county, situ
ated on the Willamette river and
on the O. & C. railroad. Costly
buildings have been erected, among
which the state capitol building,
county courthouse, Cnemeketchotel,
opera house, new public school
building, Catholic school building,
Methodist church, Willamette Uni
versity, and many private residences
and business blocks, which will
compare favorably with older and
All things considered, the Wlllam
ottp vallov has tho best country in
the world, and Marlon county Is
about centerally located therein.
To those seeking homes in the west,
no better opportunities can be
offered, than are found here. Persons
desiring 'information regarding
Marion county or the Willamette
valley, those wanting farming
lands, stock farms, business property
or city residences, will be promptly
and reliably informed by addressing
