HOME AGAIN FROM THE WILLAMETTE
San Francisco's Great
TO REGAIN LOST TRADE. ;
How the Excursionists Were
WELCOMES AND BANQUETS, j
The Oppression of the Southern Pa- j
cific Felt in Oregon-Relief
The wholesale merchants of San Fran- :
cisco can regain the trade of the Willamette ,
Valley, Oregon, if they want it— that is the \
unanimous verdict of those who have been !
spending the last ten days in that part of
the country. •
At 9 o'clock yesterday morning the mem- ,
bers of the Board of Trade who have been
paying a friendly visit to the merchants of
Oregon returned on the Oregon Pacific
steamer Willamette Valley, and every one I
of the party was full of enthusiasm over
the cordial reception they had received
and the prospects fcr a renewal of profita- :
Ole trade relations between this city and :
the merchants of the Willamette Valley.
The delegation left here on July 27 as the !
guests of the Oregon Pacific Railroad and
Steamship line, and the officials of that
corporation did everything in their power
to provide comfort and pleasure for their ;
. Upon » arrival at Yaquina Bay on Sat- :
urday, July 29, the visitors were conveyed |
to Newport upon a tug where upon ar
rival they were given a cordial reception
by the people of that beautiful and thriv
ing town. In the evening an elegant ban
quet was served, followed by a grand ball.
The next morning a drive was taken about
the vicinity, followed by a banquet at
ilonterey, a summer resort on the coast a
few miles distant from Newport.
Sunday evening the citizens of Newport
gave their visitors a farewell banquet and
in every manner possible made it an occa
sion of pleasure to all.
The following morning the excursionists
took the train for the valley. Upon rival
at Toledo the train stopped for a few min
utes for an exchange of friendly greetings.
The depot had beeu beautifully decorated,
and each member of the party was pre
sented with a bouquet of flowers.
The merchants of Corvallis boarded the
train at Philomath and accompanied the
delegates to Corvallis, where upon arrival
another banquet was given and trie visit
ors afforded an opportunity to visit the
places of interest and become acquainted
with the merchants.
At Albany tbe same evening the excur
sionists were met by a delegation of Al
bany merchants and citizens, with bands
of music and kind words of welcome.
After a short rest at the hotel they were
shown about the city in carriages and
given an opportunity to greet the business
men of the city.
In the evening an elegant banquet was
given at the St. Charles Hotel. The court
of the hotel was illuminated with Japanese
lanterns, and afforded a very pleasaut
open-air promenade owing to ttie exces
sive heat of the evening.
From Albany the party went to Salem
by the Southern Pacific -road owing to the
non-arrival of the Oregon Pacific boat that
was expected to be ready for use. At
Salem the same kind greetings were
tendered by the citizens and in the even
ing another banquet was given to the
From Salem the party went to Eugene
where they were given a drive over the
city and vicinity and a public reception
and ball in the evening.
The excursionists returned to Albany
from Eugene where they took the Oregon
Pacific train for Idanah Park, the new
mountain resort of that section of the
country and the present east terminus of
the railroad. At that place the party en
joyed fishing for trout, aud to some extent
rested from the roiiLii of pleasure which
had been prepared for their enjoyment.
On Friday they returned to Yaquina and
took the steamer for home.
Although there was a ceaseless round of
banquets and other pleasure the business
men of San Francisco and of the valley
did not neglect to thoroughly present the
advantages that would accrue to both
sections through a union of trade interests.
Eloquent speakers presented the ad
vantages to be derived by placing orders
for merchandise In this city, and they
were received with favor and encourage
ment by the Oregon ians.
The present managers of the Oregon
Pacific Kailroad. who brought about the
pleasant excursion, believe that the vast
trade of the Willamette Valley and West
ern Oregon, which for years came to San
Francisco, can be recovered from Port
land, where it was diverted by the dis
criminative methods of the Southern
The Willamette is the principal valley in
the State and constitutes tho wealthiest
portion of Oregon. It is drained by the
river of the same name, which is naviga
ble for a distance of 125 miles from its
mouth. The valley has an average width
of about sixty miles, and contains 5,000,000
acres of highly fertile land. Throughout
its entire length there are numerous small
streams draining a considerable country
in the foothills valuable for agriculture,
fruit, stock and timber.
Tbe slopes of all the mountain ranges
are covered with forests 'of fir, cedar and
oak, immensely valuable for lumber. Out
side of the level prairies there is a belt of
rolling land verging into hills and moun
tains in the higher portions which extends
almost entirely around the valley, and
constitutes a very valuable part of the
country. The soil is mainly basaltic and
sandstone and of great fertility. I
.This grand valley affords not only a vast
area of farming lands and the best condi
tions to warrant the production of heavy
crops, but a climate that enables the hus
bandman to work outdoors at something
every month in the year. In soil or cli
mate, or in any other condition affecting
crops, it will compare well with countries
of similar extent.
In fact there is but little land in the val
ley that is not good for something, being
adapted to either wheat, barley, oats, hay,
hops, pasture, vegetables, fruit, timber or
Wheat is the staple agricultural product.
Its superior quality has ? made it well
known in the <rain markets of the world.
The berry is full and heavy and averages
about twenty-four bushels to tho acre.
Oats yield heavily (from forty to seventy
five bushels per acre), and rye and barley I
are likewise profitably raised. Hops are J
the most important product, and the
source of great revenue. They are grown
on the river-bottom lands, and a large
yield of superior quality is obtained, run- j
ning from one to three thousand pounds j
Only a brief mention has been made of j
the vast products of the Willamette Val- ;
ley, but it is sufficient to show the advan- ;
tage that will come to San Francisco from
a renewal of trade relations. The Oregon
Pacific has announced that its rates shall j
be placed at desirable figures, and it now
only requires a little effort upon the part
of the merchants of this city to hold the
opening that has been made for them.
Oregon wheat, flour, wool, hides, lum
ber, salmon and all her products can be
more readily and cheaply handled in San i
Francisco than elsewhere, and this city is
certainly in a position to supply the peo
ple of Oregon with such goods as they de
sire much cheaper thau any other great
Oregon with all its natural advantages
has suffered greatly and been much re
tarded by the Southern Pacific Railroad.
It operates a road from Portland to the
Southern Oregon boundary, .'558 miles
through the Willamette Valley and the
southern part of the State. There is a
branch line of the same comnany on the
west side of the Willamette River to Cor
vallis from Portland, ninety-seven miles ;
and on the east side of the main line ir m
Wood burn to Springfield, 100 miles. The
company has a few other branch limes —
and all are supported by a rich territory.
The same methods employed by the
Southern Pacific in California are in vogue
in Oregon, and in many instances more
apprehensive. Like the people of this
State, however, the Oreennians have be
come fully aroused, aud if possible they
will obtain relief.
Whenever and wherever It is possible
they have placed boats upon their rivers,
and in that way forced the railroad to
lower its rates. Between local points
where the roads are passible they are
running freight teams. That action upon
the part of the shippers has not in all
cases secured a lowering of rates, but it
has given the people some relief by afford
ing an opportunity for profit at least dur
ing a portion ot the year.
A few days before the arrival of the San
Francisco excursionists at Fucene, the
Southern Pacific undertook to force the
merchants and producers ot that place to
YAQUINA CITY AND BAY.
; ship their goods over its lines to Portland. !
Prior to that time they had been paying '
the Southern Pacific's local rale to Cor
vallis and then transferring them to the !
Oregon Pacific for San Francisco.
The distance between the two towns is
only about forty miles, and rather than
nay the increased rates of the Southern
Pacific a number of freight teams were
| secured and the goods taken to Corvallis. j
, The teams have proven a paving invest
ment, the teamsters realizing SlOatrip
each wav for hauling two t--n«, while the!
. merchants obtain the advantage of the !
Oregon Pacific's low rates.
The merchants of Eugene say that they
propose to stand off the Southern Pacific ;
I as long as the roads remain good, at least, ,
; and hope to obtain relief by their river i
route at other times.
The raise made by the Southern Pacific
I was upon goods from Albany to all points
south, and added 10 cents ncr 100 pounds
on first class; 11 cents on second class; 12
cents on third class; 9 cents on fourth
class. Tnis increase made the rate 35 i
cents to Eugene.
Some months ago a Government snag
boat did some excellent work on the
Willamette River and when the roads be
come impassable the river will be navi
gable and the merchants of Eugene will
; then give the Southern Pacific only such
business as they are compelled 10.
The merchants of Albany want to trade
with San Francisco, hut a difference of 6 '
j cents per hundred in freight rates causes I
them to send their orders to Portland. :
: The first-class rate of the Oregan -Pacific
from Sau Francisco to Albany, a distance
of 550 miles, is 33 cents per hundred !
pounds. From Portland to Albany, a dis- ;
tance of about eighty miles by the south
ern Pacific, the rate is 27 cents. •
Wherever Portland is apt to be placed
1 in competition with San Francisco the *
Southern Pacific gives the former city the
benefit of a lower rate. But when that is
not necessary the local rates are all that i
the goods will stand. For example, it |
i csts Sl more per hundred pounds to send
i goods to a station on the Southern Pacific
! half way between Portland and San Fran
cisco than for the entire distance.
The rule or ruin policy of the Southern
j Pacific has caused it to make a vigorous
: warfare on the Oregon Pacific, but if. has
found a competitor that is full of determi
nation to win, and, as it lias the sympathy
and support of the people of the territory
through which it passes, it will succeed.
The Oregon Pacific connects with its
! own line of steamers at Yaquina, running
from San Francisco. From Yaquina it
' runs to the foot of the Cascade Mountain*,
[ a distance of 163 miles. It is well built
and possesses first-class equipment.
At the present time the company is in
: the hands of Receiver E. W. Had ley, and
I will be sold to satisfy its obligations on
1 October 23. It is known that arrange
ments have been completed for its pur
chase by some of its present owners, and
i it will be continued under the management
j of the officials now conducting it.
The road has always enjoyed a lucrative
i traffic, but owing fo bad management it
| became so involved that the holders of its
I securities were compelled to take it in
; charge. When that occurred and the pres
| ent officials took charge of its affairs the
: road began to increase Its earnings. They
] have used their best energies to improve
, the roadbed and train service and to
j benefit the people who nave given them
! such an earnest support.
Through the efforts of the railroad
Yaquina Bay has been enlarged and im
: proved until it is one of the nest harbors
on the Pacific Coast. They have con-
I structed docks, warehouses, machine-shops
! and in many ways increased the value of
i the road.'JßaHl
Trade between the Willamette Valley
: and San Francisco is necessary* for the .
success of the Oregon Pacific Company.
f At this time the company's ships come
i heavily loaded with grain and other Oregon
j products, but they are compelled to return
almost empty. To remedy this the com
, pany is offering rates that will enable San
Francisco to compete with Portland and
j in time they expect to derive a fair profit
! from the increased traffic.
-In addition to securing a further im
i provement to Yaquina Bay the Oregon
i Pacific expects to extend its line into East
j crn Oregon. They are now within forty
'miles of the eastern side of the Cascade
Mountains, r.nd the right of may is secured

occupies in touch with the rest of the
Years ago* this- city had a fair share of
the trade of Middle and Southern Oregon,
the goods being shipped by the way of
Portland. But there came a change when
the Northern Pacific was completed to
Portland. The western terminals were
established, and San Francisco made but
a slight effort to retain its trade against its
Eastern rivals that came with the new
order of things. ~W&83-W___\
Since that time the Oregon Pacific was
constructed over the Coast Range ■ and
down through the, Willamette Valley and
when it was in operation .San Francisco
began to look about to regain its business,
and they began giving the new linn their
patronage. They had fairly started when
they were set back by tho discriminations
of the Southern Pacific in favor of Port
land. This has retarded the growth of
their trade, but it will now receive another
advancement by reason of the Oregon
Pacific's now rates.
The Oregon Pacific put into effect on
July 25 a rate of 23 cents per 100 rounds
from San Francisco to Corvallis and Al
bany on ail classes of merchandise except
articles coming under special commodity
rates. That rate includes State wharf toll
and transfer charges at the Oregon points.
This gives a very low rate to all points in
The commodity, rates going into effect
at the same time are shipments of 4000
pounds and over, as follows:
To Corvallis and Albany— Canned goods,
17 cents; coal and coke, 16 cents; grain
bags, 15 cents; horseshoes, 17 cents; lime
and cement, Hi cents; malt, 18 cents; nails,
cents; gas. and water pipe, 17 cents;
rice, salt and sugar, 15 cents; wire, 17
cents. These rates also include State
wharf tolls and transfer charges.
While these rates are remarkably low
ana ought to secure the trade of the Wil
lamette Valley, if such does not prove to
be the case the Oregon Pacific managers
have stated that they will make them
lower. They propose to bring about an
exchange of commodities if they have to
carry goods at the cost of transportation.
In a number of instances the Southern
Pacific has undertaken to discourage per
sons who were patronizing the Oregon
Pacific by delaying the shipments of goods
transferred to them destined to points on
their line. General Superintendent Mul
cahy of -he Oregon Pacific, when ques
tioned about the matter, --aid:
"We are now experiencing no delay in
hp.ndling San Francisco business for
points in Southern Oregon. It is difficult
to understand why the Southern Pacific
pursues the policy of .delaying shipments
delivered them by the Oregon Pacific
Railroad Company. On dry goods, cloth
ing, boots .and shoes— in fact, all goods
that are classified as first class— they re
ceive $126 per 100 pounds for hauling
them from Albany to Ashland, a distance
of 262 miles, while the Oregon Pacific re
ceives 23 cents per 100 pounds for trans
porting the same class, of ,good 3 from San
Francisco to Albany, a distance of 528
miles. Besides, every pound of freight de
livered to them at Albany for Portland
and points beyond is absolutely clear gain
to them, not a pound of which would they
receive was it not for the Oregon Pacific."

Railroad is not complete without a men
tion of its ocean terminus, Yaquina Bay,
and the towns of Newport and Yaouiua
Yaquina Bay indents the western shore
lof Oregon about midway between its
northern and southern boundaries. It is
an enlargement of a river bearing the same
name and extends Inland a distance of
about four miles. This portion of the
coast was formerly part of an Indian
reservation and was opened by Congress
1 in 1865. For several years previous to that
j time a San Francisco company had the
oyster-beds in the bay and prosecuted a
The bay is said by scientists to be one of
I the richest places in archaeological and
zoological specimens on the Pacific Coast,
, and is much frequented by those who
make a study of these branches. There Is
; a generous expanse of sand beach, extend
ing many miles north and south of the
I moutii of the bay, and at intervals are
| found rocky points, some of which possess
-fantastic and weird scenery.
The most important element is in the
j commercial growth or- the bay, and this
I depends upon the Government work to
i deepen the entrance to the harbor. The
work was commenced in 1881, and nearly
$400,000 has thus far been expended. The
: improvements already made have made it
; an excellent harbor, and when the jetties
i and their enrockaient are finished there
will be an entrance channel one thousand
feet wide. '
When the work was commenced there
I was only about seventeen feet of water

ENFORCE THE ACT.
A Pastor Who Approves
of Geary's Law.
Rev. W. D. Williams Tells His Con
gregation That the Chinese Are
/ Undesirable Residents.
Plymouth Congregational Church has a
pastor whose views on the Chinese ques
tion are influenced by no maudlin senti
ment. lie believes in the spirit and the
letter of the Geary act and demands that
its provisions shall be enforced.
Key. Vv. I). Willi D.D., preached to
a large congregation last nisilt on "Chris
tianity, and the Chinese." "What lias
Christianity done for China?" asked Dr.
Williams. "It lias done something in our
own city for that part where the resi
dents of San Francisco are lying huddled
together in darkness and degradation. It
is doing something in China. Enlighten
ment is gaining on superstition and the
fear of God is superseding the cruel
tyranny of sin.
"What has America done for the
Chinese? Much. It has given him labor
when he wanted it and has paid him wages
for his work. It has given liim a chance
to rise from his sensual, ignorant self to a
better life and a nobler manhood. If a
man cannot acquire a greater education
and a broader knowledge than simply that
required to gain dollars and cents he is not
improving his opportunities. The China
man has indicated a remarkable leek of
desire to learn more thau is required for the
purposes of barter.
"It is said he has grasped the plan of
salvation. If converted he does not stay
converted. The percentage of Christians
who backslide in our churches is small,
but among the Chinese wo fully large.
The Chinaman's lack of knowledge and our
length of frontier are two good reasons
why the Geary act should stay. The
Chinese is conscienceless In a prevailing
degree. He has the characteristic of not
telling the truth.
"The requirements of the Geary act are
reasonable and simple, not difficult nor
tyrannical. It requires the Chinese to
Register his name and photograph. He is
Sam Sing in San Francisco and Sing Sam
in Portland— changing his name with hi
residence as a matter of custom. Any
amount of advice about the Geary act Is
being given in places where a Chinese is
never seen. Advice would be less liberal
if facts and experience were more prolific
"The penalty provided by the act is not
severe. The offenders are to be deported
at the expense of the Government, not put
in stocks or prison. The purpose of the
law is exclusion, not deportation. A cob
web is a small thing, and a spicier Is weak.
But by spinning a web across a window in
time even the. sun will be excluded. If
this little brown man is allowed to spin
his web in every city he might in time
even shut out the gospel.
"The Geary act is simply lifting the
door and putting it on binges so ttie door
may be under management. We have a
treasure in this country, but It is in an
earthen vessel which may be broken if
care is not taken. People say it is God's
will that Chinese should come hither; but
they interpret God's will to suit their own
interests and desires. Every resident of
this country should obey its laws and
honor the Government. This is a result
which the Geary act will help to obtain.
Let the act be upheld and see that it is
rigidly enforced." I^Wl
