THE CONDITION OF THE COUNTRY
AND SURROUNDINGS. ‘
Examiners of Government Surveys
—A Rich Agricultural Sec
tionnl'lodel Hotel Ac
J. R. Dewitt, the government examiner
of surveys, accompanied by T. B. Smith
and H. P. Bush, returned on Sunday from
Chehalis county where they have been ex
amining surveys just made, in order team
that the lines are properly run. They
were out just a week, and traversed much
of the country along the Humptulips river.
All surveys contracted for by the gov
ernment are examined before they are ac
cepted at the land ofﬁce in Washington,
and opened for ﬁling.
When the three men arrived in the city
on Sunday evening they looked as if they
had been traveling a pretty rough road,
and verily they had- They were hungry
too, for ﬂapjacks and 17th century corn
beef were not so inviting at the dinner to
which they sat down at the Carlton house.
They each agreed that they felt a hundred
per cent better after having devoured a
After reaching Hoquiam, they had to
travel 32 miles over a. rough road that
wouldn’t accommodate anything with
wheels. On their backs they packed their
grub, instruments and blankets. Their
progress was slow, but slower still when
they reached the end of the road at Hump
tnlips city and had to make their way
from there over a trail that was almost
hidden with brush and fallen logs. It was
gilﬁcult to cover more than two miles an
our. » .
At Humptulips Cii‘y there is a general
store and a hotel. “’ he landlord ought to
be arrested for obtaining money under
false pretence,” said one of their number,
“and if a piece of the bread were to strike
you, you would imagine that somebody
had assaulted you with a, deadly weapon.
It needed a salmon spear to tackle the
meat, but we managed to get through
with it.” 7 ,
While this country is almost inaccessi
ble, it is as rich for cultivation as any in
the state. How man§ thousand years it
has been enriched y falling leaves isa
puzzle, but such a thing as a stone is out
of the question. Immense ﬁr logs from
six to twelve feet in diameter cover the
ground so that it is impossible to see the
chainman 100 feet distant.
When the corner stakes to a section or
township are driven they are placed in
the ground diagonally. with the corners
facing due north, south, east and west.
Notes are made of the angles, size and de
scription of the tree nearest to each corner
of the stake, and other data. is made to
mark the corner. The party was out one
week, during which time it rained con
