Been Portaged Around
Celilo Rapids
Celilo, Or, April 28. The Dalles-Celi-lo
canal, 8 1-2 miles in length and built
by the United Stntes government at a
cost of more than $4,500,000, was open
ad to navigation today.
The steamer Inland Empire, from the
upper Columbia river, and the steum
er J. N. Teal, from the lower river,
traversed the canal and locks, meeting
in the passing basin.
The opening of the canal makes pos
sible the navigation of the Columbia
river from the Pacific ocean to l'ricst
Rapids, a distance of 450 miles, and
the Columbia and Snake rivers to Lew
iston, Idaho, 497 miles.
Heretofore steamer cargoes have been
portaged around Celilo Knpids over a
state-owned railroad.
A series of celebrations to mark the
opening of the canal will begin at Lew

various towns along the Columbia river
