markable man. He was a native of
Ayer, Scotland, aged 81 years, aud
leaves behind him grand and great
grand-children. 3frs. Dr. Trenchard,
and old and respected resident of As

ria by this route get to Montesauo tho

Plenty of Room.
On the last steamer came the
usual installment of inquiring letters
from people living iu the eastern and
Mississippi valley states, bHt who con
template coming out hero. Some of
them, from tho way they write would
do well, others would not. One
young man who writes from West
Virginia says he wants to make a homo
and amount to something. Another
in Jacksonville, 111., wants to know
what clerk's wages are. For the first
kind there is plenty of room; tho man
who wants to come out here and drop
into a soft job had better stay where
he is. A man who conies here to wurk
and make a home will find plenty to
do, if he be not fastidious, and show
a willingness to pitch in, but he
mnsn't be -afraid of getting his hands
dirty; he can go aa cook to a logging
camp and get $50 a month and his
grub, or if he can stand the work, as a
chopper at $80 or $90 a month, or if
he has tho knowledge, as a teamster at
$10') or $125 a month. Ho can de
velop his chest and appetite and by
keeping a sharp lookout can get 1G0
acres of timber land for $450 or $500
that will bo worth $20,000 in three
year's time. If he bo a mechanic he
will havo no difficulty in getting
plenty of work in tho first town he
strikes. Astoria can furnish employ
ment to-day to overy one here and
plenty more who are willing to earn
money and buy what they need w ith
it. If the young man from West
Virginia is single, wo should advise
him to get his traps together
and 6tart at once. If he is married,
or has anyone depending on him for
support, let him go slow, aud not
think of coming to Oregon unless ho
has some ready money to support
him for some time after getting here.
If he has nothing but his labor tn sell
ho will find a ready market, but should
he be able to look around a little, if
he has money to invest, no section of
fers superior inducements than the
northwest of '83. But after all, it
depends upon himself. Wherever he
goes he will take himself along; if he
is willing and persistent, if he wants
to work aud doesn't got tired too
soon, he will do well and mako money;
if he is temperate and saving he will
accumulate coin, and we will elect him
Mayor or Councilman in 1888, and if
he has any special gift or talent wheth
er of nature or education he can use
it to good advantage, and amount to
something out here. But if he lives
by his wits he must have sharp tools
and even then will be likely to run
against the police fo-ce.
There is room for the young man
from West Virginia unless he be one
of the kind who thinks the world owes
him a living. If that be his motto
let him get the community where he
now is to cancel the debt.
