A Double Wedding. j mm&mamm&iS i i echoed Some Interestittc Reminiscences of Early Days. A Corvallis Genius. "An article replete with interest ing data appeared in Sunday's Oregonian under the caption, "Early Navigation on the Wil lamette." It recounts the his tory of steamboating on Sam Simpson's "lovely river" from the time the diminutive "Hoos ier," built at Salem in 1851, first plied its waters, until the present day. The year 1851 witnessed the advent of three other boats, the Washington, Multnomah and Canemah. The first of these was a side-wheel 'steamer, purchased in San Francisco and brought to the Upper Willamette, where, at Canemah, one lovely June morn ing, she was launched, to run on the Yamhill route for a short sea son. At the close of the season she was taken below the falls and operated there. Two years later she was restored to the upper James Roake, of Oregon City, visited Corvallis last week for the purpose of seeing his son, Chester, who is attending the u A o. It is estimated that at least 125 carloads of hops have been shipped from Oregon so far this season. The price is still fairly firm at 15 cents per pound. It is claimed that in the counties of Benton, Linn and Lane jack- rablifs are becoming quite numer ous and are causing some damage to young orchards. Dr. Altman, physician of Captain G. A. Robinson, who has been ser iously ill since the first of the month with peritonits, reports that his patient is much improved. There is a call for all the Chris tian ladies of Corvallis at the Pres byterian church on Wednesday, November 14th, under the auspices of the M. E. Church, South.

Lincoln county seems about to enjoy a stir shortly in the way of lumber business. She has been visited of late by a number of East- em lumbermen. At preseni two brothers, Messrs. Hendry, of Wis consin are investigating mat seo- tion. A very pleasant reception was tendered Father Jurek, Friday evening at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Nolan in honor of his safe return from Europe. Th evening was spent most pleasantly in various entertaining ways. A number of Albany pecple drove over to attend the function. Some men passed through Cor vallis Saturday with a band of 700 head of sheep. They brought them from some point on the Columbia river and are en route to Lane county with them. It is under stood they are sold and are des tined for a point about 18 or 20 miles west of Eugene. Sheriff Burnett arrived home from Salem, Saturday, having taken H. Kubli to the penitentiary. In going to Salem with his man the sheriff went from here to Al bany by private conveyance Friday in timo to catch the 3 p. m. north bound train. He experienced no trouble :n delivering his prisoner to the authorities at the state prison.

Readers of the Gazette will re- member our item of - a few issues back, concerning tho romantic mar riage of Chas. Green, of Lebanon, Oresron, and Mrs. Ruth Maxham, of Hartford, Conn., which was soon to be solemnized. Mrs. Maxham arrived in Albany, November 6th, and she was 'cined in that city the same evening by Mr. Green. They were married at tho Revere house by Dr. M. C. Wire. Geo. A. Houck, of Monroe, writ ing to the Pacific Homestead gives the following recipe for the de struction of evei green blackberries: "I once had an overrun patch that was entirely beyond control. I fenced it out into pasture, and the goats did the rest, so I recommend coats to the inquirer. They won't kill them in one year nor possibly the second, but if the dose is re peated they will finally come out an top." recorded reason, she was dis patched to the Umpqua, and the Willamette knew her no more. The Multnomah was built in the East and brought out to Ore gon in sections. She was put to gether at Canemah and launched in Tune, the same month and year as the Washington. She was not beautiful at least, her portrait does not - convey the idea of grace but she possessed both power and speed, and was en thusiastically welcomed by the inhabitants of Corvallis and its outlving districts, for she was the first boat to ascend to that point, Albany having previously been considered the head of navi gation on the river. However, her passenger accommodations so far exceeded her capacity as a freight carrier that it was not found profitable to operate her upon the Corvallis route, and so, at the end of the year, she was transferred to Portland and ran for 12 years upon the lower Wil lamette and Columbia. The Canemah, a somewhat larger and slower craft of local construction, took the place of the Multnomah in the traffic of the upper river. The Shoalwater, which navi gated the Willamette for seven years, changed her name four times. Her life was one long chapter of accidents and she ended her career as a floating sawmill. The Walamette, another steam boat of tha same date, was con sidered the most magnificent boat on the inland waters of the North west. She was not for some rea son a success on the upper river from the hills be lt was the craft' s dying protest against her untime ly fate a fate which was shared by he captain and one of her crew. In the steamer's safe was money to the amount of $2,000. The safe with its contents to this day, for aught man knoweth to the contrary, reposes on the bed of the Willamette. Some old streamboatmen, 35-years after the disaster, left Portland to en deayor to get the safe and its precious contents. There seemed little to contend against except the accumulation of silt and debris beneath which the safe lies buried, for the change in the face of the fall has left the basin dead water, without current or cataract. The treasure-hunters took a full and complete outfit to aid them in their work, but their attempts proved futile. In 186o, according to the rec ords, a genius at Corvallis con cluded that steamboats were too expensive to operate, so he rigged a craft with tread mill machinery and cattle and horses for motive power. Coming down the river on her first trip, the vessel ran or rather walked ashore, at McGoo gian's Slough, where she stayed till the motive power had de voured all the oats and hay on board. Then the skipper, unde niably a man of original ideas, was forced to sell his oxen and give up that method of transportation. Thanksgiving Service. The ministers of this city held a meeting last week in the study of Rev. Mark Noble and arranged for the Thanksgiving service. At this meeting it was found that it was now the turn of the Congregational church to have this honor and the hour for the service was set at 10:30 a. m. The pastor whose turn it was to deliver the sermon should be the Christian minister, consequent ly Rev. G. S. O. Humbert was chosen, although he was not pres ent at the meeting. At this time officers were chosen from the pastors for the Ministerial Association of this city for the fol lowing year. Rev. F. L. Moore, of the M. E. church, was elected presi dent; Rev. F. A. Lark, of the M. E. Church, South, viee-president; Rev. L. M. Boozer, of the United Evan gelical church, secretary. The as sociation is to meet one a month and the time of the meeting is set for the first Monday evening of the month . Tho residence of W F Hamlin, in Linn county, two miles from Cor vallis, was on last Ihursday morn ing the scene of a pretty double wedding in which Miss Grace Ham lin and Mr W E Smith, and Miss Clara Lovella Smith and Mr S Eugene Beal were united in mar- riage. At 10:30 o'clock to Men delssohn's Vedding March, played by Miss Winnifred Beal, the bride grooms led ttneir Prides into tna tastefully decorated parlors, where the ceremony was performed in an impressive manner by Rev Geo E Henderson. After the wedding a delicious breakfast was served, to which tho guests did ample justice. The table was beautifully decora ted with violets and roses. The brides were both beauti fully arrayed in white organdie with satin trimmings, and each car ried a boquet of brides roses. The bride-grooms were attired in con ventional blaek. The hall and parlors were richly ornamented with banks of tern and gariana 01 chrysanthemums and roses. Mis3 Hamlin la the lovely and accomplished daughter of Mr and Mrs W F Hamlin.

In 1854 the Gazelle was built at a point on the bank of the river, opposite Oregon City, by a company organized for the pur pose of founding a rival town. Fate apparently frowned upon this ambition. The first boat constructed by the company was burned before she was fairly completed; the second, the ill fated Gazelle, was blown to atoms within 20 days after launch ing:. This disaster involved loss of life, as well as destruction of property, for her crew, together with a score of passengers, shared her sudden fate. The Enterprise, launched in 1855, eventually found her way northward to the Frazer river. The James Clinton, built the fol lowing year, was the first boat to ascend the Willamette as far as Eugene. She was successfully operated upon this route, giving the people of the upper valley efficient and satisfactory service until she was, at last, broken up and her machinery shipped to Coos bay, to become an integral part of a steamer being con structed at that point. The Port land, built the same year as the James Clinton, below the talis, was, when completed, taken up and run for a twelve-month, un der command of Captain Jamie son. The story of the Portland's tragic end is told by those who witnessed her mad leap over the brink of the foaming cataract at Oregon City. It was on the 17th of March, 1857, There had been an acci dent on the trip down the river, which resulted in an injured rud der. The damage had been temporarily repaired by means of rope lashings. At Canemah, just above the falls, the boat landed some freioht and started to cross to the opposite shore. When in midstream the rope lashing part ed, and the craft swung head-on down the river. The current was swift and strong and her en gines were powerless m its re lentless sweep. As she went over the falls, her whistle sounded a wild, wailine shriek, that was Henry Sites-'accompanied by his wife, arrived in Corvallis, Saturday, from Alsea, en route to faalem. b lve weeks ago Sunday Mrs. Sites was so unfortunate as to have one of her eves put out by the explosion 01 a cartridge which had fallen into the fire-place, mention of which was made at the time in the Gazette. Since then she has suffered con stantly and the other eye was seri ously effected and threatened to cause total blindness. It was quite an undertaking to being Mrs. Sites out from Alsea at this time of the year and in her condition on ac count of the condition of the roads. She could not staud much shaking as it would cause great suffering. The road over Alsea mountain be ing in a condition that it could scarcely be crossed on horseback, they came out by way of Dusty, having started Friday. It is sincere ly hoped tnat the specialist in Sa lem will be able to alleviate the nain and save Mrs. Sites the afflic tion of total blindness. S. L.
