Portland, July 12, ISSO.
] f For two weeks the flood of water down
the Columbia, caused by the melting snows
that Snake river from the south and
that fill the . Columbia ' from : the mountain
ranges of .' Montana, . has held : the Willam
ette in check and backed up its flow until
the lower .business portions of this city
have been submerged and the streets more
navigable for boats than for wagons. 'Peo
ple ; have traversed f the \ thoroughfares on
raised ; temporary walks, and' the wharves
being ' submerged \ has .caused ' a great sus
pension *of trade, and business has conse
quently I suffered. yf. Transportation . to * the
upper Columbia has been limited, and part
of the time i actually suspended,'? but I the
partial subsidence of the flood ' has enabled
the O. R. and N. Co'/ to commence freight
ing again, and the ! rush \ of . merchandise is
temporarily greater than can; be accommo
dated. The j lower business if streets look
fearfully dilapidated"; water still stands in i
them as the lowering of . the flood has gone I
only very slowly and cannot have subsided I
more than fifteen er eighteen inches. The
supply from above must be immense,' for the
Columbia can hold and carry a great quan
tity, and .; all this while, for two V weeks
past, has , been ; pouring a : broad ' torrent
with vast power into the </' ocean. I
The damage caused in this city, though not I
great ; in \ any particular instance," will ag
gregate heavily,' besides the loss by deten
tion of f business ; but "along the Columbia I
rivtr there are j many farmers whose ] hopes I
are ruined for 18S0. * One of the most 'pro- I
ductive spots is Sawyer's Island," ten miles I
long,' reaching from j the Columbia -. up the ,
Willamette/ that f has j been I entirely sub- I ',
merged. The % Cowlitz s region fis V heavy
loser,' and all along the : river j the ' devasta
tion ; has _ been lamentable, and J at the "ex- j
pense of hard-working people,' who cannot
spare what i they lose. The flood I lacked |
about ten inches of being as high as in 1876," I
and the people have had the experience so I
lately encountered to guide (them; in, their
treatment of it/ft The j two I greatest [ floods
known in the history of j the | country hap- 1
pen with only three intervening years, and I
the question arises if it is' not possible and
probable that the rivers are filling up with
mining debris J and 5 silt | from jj cultivated
lands, as has been the case with the Sacra- I
men to, and if such is the case iit j may ! be
come necessary for the city of J Portland', to
i ass tie grade of its lower streets small !
job that will prove costly at anytime/and I
more : so (after, a while," when they; are j all I
built up with ■ permanent i business ■ blocks. I
These are the questions that ri.»e and f de- J
mand consideration/ as : the I country grows i

"f.ff/f THE CFMSrs. ,*;
'.-' From present appearances the population
of Oregon will approximate about 170,000,
so thinks the Superintendents the Census.
Our Soloes who met in legislative conclave
in 1878 were confident (they said) that the.
population { was* then 200,000? and fon f the
strength of that claim/ stoutly made, they
claimed the benefit of a constitutional pro
vision which gave permueion for the organ
ization of a separate Supreme Court ]] when
the State should have that | many; people-
Before that time j the five Circuit Judges j
met as a Supreme Court once or twice a j
year.* The new Supreme Court has gone into j
operation, and waa ! at first J appointed] by
the Governor,' but the people have recently I
elected an entirely new bench; no member I
of . which! was » ever Va T Judge j before/ and
when the 'Legislature " guessed " that the
State had 200,000 ; population * it probably '
had not more - than 1 140,000/ which J shows !
that the Yankee gift jof guessing has not !
extended to the northwest ■ coast?? The I
census may develop interesting: facts rela
tive to | Oregon/ and probably will do so ; *.
but after the summary will be meager I
and show but » little | growth of manufac
turing. We : have 5 considerable j trade, re
tail and wholesale here in Portland, and a
reliable | future, % but J otherwise '£ we are
a people who graze herds and grow wheat
for . the ; English t market. "? I*i landed here
thirty years ago/ when the population of Ore
gon was between 6,000 and ; 7,000, and the
territory '_ included '":. all c that _ how,' makes
Washington and Idaho , Territory, if 3 not
more than; that. During that thirty years
Kansas, Nebraska and Colorado have grown
from | nothing, |; and f. .. we, with .*= distance
against us, are : still j comparatively few .in
numbers. • .*. When "4 railroad v connection $ is
made, and emigrant rates fixed low enough
to permit of people coming here in num
bers, we shall have an influx of population
to amount to something. There is so much
room up * here :* that ] the ' passengers who
come ;by steamer," and ' those who ; come,
as * many, -.' do, by ..-land? travel f from I
the ", Eastern 7 States : . and f from California,
are f swallowed ]| up f: by/ the ;]j all-pervad- 1
ing empty space ; and jievcr heard of; more.'
Not exactly that, but they - : do'. little to
wards filling up the "i vacant lands. They
don't come to this valley, which makes but I
slow . progress/l for, since the •« world has I
found out that the upper Columbia region J
offers plenty of j homesteads { of good j soil, j
they give us the go-by and push on up the I
great river to/get one of Uncle Sam's do- 1
nations ror.- to s buy 3of § the } North Pacific
Railroad f Company's granted . lands. The [
census report of 1890 may tell a* different [
story and \ give something to boast of/ but I
that [of i 18801 will f merely; tell f the , world
that wo have been ; tool far off to make the
same progress as newer Eastern States.
'.' "THE STATE FAlß.????'? ■;' yf
f Overcome ; and impoverished rby succes- 1
sive October rains' that had plunged it into
a' debt of over 120,000, the State Agricult
ural Society concluded last year to make a
radical {change of ! programme and meet
this year in July, instead of October. .' The
experiment i has been .tried/a nd proved 5 a
success 'f for the I society, and £ that, too,
against many obstacles. First was the
flood that { demoralized j Portland j ami | pre
vented a large attendance from here ; next
was f. the \ impoverished i condition of £ the
country people generally, that made thou
sands stay at home who would have gone if
able ; last was! the -fact; that the gorgeous
display of fall squashes and vegetables was
to be foregone/ and | only "/replaced with J a
few r'.y stuff of no practical account ; the
wealth of g red I apples, peaches, grapes, l
pears, plums and all that were poorly off
set by a few strawberries and cherries, and
the i grain * exhibit 1 bore :ho comparison to
a % fall \ display.*!? A s. a \ consequence f. the
Pavilion wa3 ) poorly] filled, but there was
a good show of stock of all kinds that was
very creditable to 1 the State. The sheep
men were out in force with merinos, Cots
wolds, Leicestere, Ox ford-hires '. and ' good
grades, and though we don't 'pay the at
tention to hog product* we ought, there
were ! good I animals { of the various j breeds
of swino. .§ The ; furore after ]" Angora '^goat
has rather died out. ; This is a country
especially designed; for those animals, but
it is not apparent that there .is any ! great
profit in them, except to the shrewd breed
ers who bring. them here for sale. Sheep
husbandry if proves !| sure lp enough, with j
ordinary facilities and "good; care, and] the |
good price for wool] encourages breeders to
; pay : attention *to their flocks. 'if. The Cots
wolds } arc | not- popular, as . they | grade
bad ly, with the j merino, but \ the necessity
is felt for some long wool to breed [to • tie
high I grade s merinos § and Bf produce the
medium wool . so 'desirable "\ for : the uses of
commerce. For this purpose the Leicester
or. Oxfordshire are preferred. -
JPjj!_j£ . F TATTLE 'AND * HORSES. ■ *"-'....
-;y Oaf. fancy breeders i. were • hardly , in | the
market with their short-horns; partly.be-"
cause they have f never : found profit to any
great extent in their efforts, and partly be-'
cause l too much expense ;is - involved in
taking them to the fair. There were many
good short-horn bulls and cows | there, lut
not of the pampered kind — quite a 1 number
of good grades. ; Some Jerseys and Ayre
shires, and a fine show of first -class stock
was i made {by Coleman i Younger of | Cali
fornia, who sent up 13 1 head, including his
famous prize bull, p This lot of short-horns
were fancy .bred; 7 and kept up in style, six!
everybody pronounced them the best lot of
cattle ever shown in Oregon, as no : : doubt/
The prize bull was not offered ■ for sale,
but ;■ all '*, the f other animals, '; I ; believe,*
found '-f sale f at '{ '.' remunerative f prices.
The exhibit of horses was good and varied/
'Ay gentleman | from "i. Colorado, ls himself a
great stock f man] in 1 that • State, 'expressed
surprise \toJmc sat i the ■ display of draft
horses," and said j Colorado! could not equal
it. We show the best * of ; Clydesdale and
I'ercheron horses, '■ imported [ especially for -1
Oregon/and their progeny that . has grown
up become good working stock and: brood
animals. ':;- 1 ; have often | told | you that we
run ato J horses, and are growing fa 1 lot of
draft animals ; and i roadsters ' that are ' im
proving ' each year. We :, have the usual !
grades of * Englialrcoach horses. y Normans,'
good stock,' that .includes work animals of I
every, description, \ was _ on 1 exhibit, and
some fine families of colts/ The genuine
horse-men, par. excellence, who sustain the
credit of the State en the race-track,' were
out in .fall'] force, and* the races were the
great feature jof attraction. : j The trotters
didn't beat | St... Julien V-. time /by ■ about
twenty seconds/ but made j as much fuss as
if ; they did ; the running was the most in
teresting, and one ■ two-mile race . was de
clared the '.-*;'.*.'.,-.---"'- ;■'* ..;...'
f .The horse-men are a queer lot, with some
good material among them. General John
F. Miller of Salem,' the well-known Demo
cratic politician,' has a line stud and takes
a . leading interest fin • the ] management
of f the ; State ' Fair, :as : well as :' in / the j
racing. '. His animals | are } rftdly ■ a choice
10t.'?:.-* Another i< excellent . man f and jj good
citizen is John Redmond of Yamhill, who is
doing his full share towards improving the
horse stock of Oregon and has a fine trot
ting stallion named Kisber. Much has to I
be conceded to the horse-men, as it is mat-'
ter of doubt if the "crowd. would attend a
fair that did not furnish' amusement or. the
race course. The receipts of I the | Society
a,^regate about 819,000, affording one-third
of { that amount : for,: the reduction of , the
debt,": and with this j gain in j finances the
Society finds grr'at encouragement. > I do not
consider the holding of I the fair in July as
a satisfactory, success, '■ for October, is ;' the
natural % season i for/ displaying % this § btst
products of i the i earth/ but [as the J rainy
season j seems to interfere .with I the I pro
gramme too much; in that month," the next
fair will no doubt be held again in July,
and we may, l.oV; for .'a* better Exposition
another year. The most satisfactory fairs
were held sin; old j times, before i there was
any railroad, when from far and near peo
ple j came * in . . their,,' carriages. '.Then ; the
drives around: the grounds and , the race
course were alive with line turn-outs, while
now they comb in the cars and leave 'their
fine teams at home. The celebration of the
fifth of July on the grounds was the saving
feature of the late fair, as it drew together i
a greater" crowd than was ever gathered in
our State before. f
The latest excitement here is caused by
the claim set up by the Oregonian Railway
Company . (limited) to .a . certain • piece of
property donated to ■ the : city "of Portland
by the ancient proprietor ' for : public ; uses,
being a part of -the; levee on the south of
the city. / This property; is -very valuable,
and so thought the Narrow-gauge Railroad
Company when ; in want |6f! a place for a
railway , terminus [ and \ also ] for ] a : steamer
landing ; whereupon ; they set up claim to
it under the incorporation Act, to be con
demned for such use. Without asking leave
of the city/and not waiting for the decision
of. the Courts, they put \ a gang of men to
work grading the land. These men were ar
rested |by order of the city ] on I charges of
trespass, and on habeas corpus brought for
their release I by the railroad company/ the
Circuit Court has ;' granted their release on
the ground that \ under the \ Constitution
the city ordinance under which they were
arrested is invalid. This leaves the claim
for appropriation of the property to be de
cided _by the \ Courts. */. The laws ', are very
liberal } with [ regard \to I railroad corpora
tions, granting them such property as they
require for actual use on fair appraisement.'
The corporation seems very sanguine about
holding the property, but the City Council
is very indignant; at the attempt and will _
no doubt make every effort possible to pre
vent the appropriation. The narrow-gauge
is pushing work on its roads and claims to
intend to build from Portland next year.
fk No fear j need) be entertained ' that : Gar
field will not carry t Oregon. The : political
complexion of J2 the i State ; is ; fixed. No
sensible | Democrat expects that | Hancock
can succeed here. The fixed character of
our | State ' politics makes lit V lively times
among Senatorial aspirants. The rumor is
renewed v that George H. .Williams will
soon come back I from Washington, and jit
is further said that he depends on the Ore
gonian: to j support T his | claims, having re
ceived assurances to that effect. S^^C/pl^
