ASTORIA, OREGON, SUNDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1883. PRICE, FIYE CENTS. EARLY DAYS IN OREGON. Policy r the Hudson liny Company. The second volume ol the series of American Comraou'vrealths is 'Ore gon: the Struggle for Possession," by William Barrows. It is not a dry and juiceless chronicle of events, as too many of our Pacific coast histo ries have been, but it is a remarkably interesting sketch of the American genius for colonizing and its success in overcoming the formidable natural obstacles on the Oregon trail and the still greater obstruction placed in its path by that jealous British mon opoly, the Hudson Bay company. "We have had some good mouograplis on single episodes in Oregon history, such, for example, as "Whitman's ride and his murder by the Indians to whom he had devoted his life, but it remained for this author to give the first clear and connected historv of a struggle which had an important bearing on the development of the great northwest territory. After de tailing the efforts in exploration on this coast by Spain, France, Russia and England, he devotes a chapter to the remarkable features of the Hud Bson ay company, a corporation which played so conspicuous a part in the subsequent history of Oregon. He shows that it was formed prima rily "for the discovery of a new pas sage into the South Sea and for the finding of some trade for furs, miner als and other commodities." The first purpose was mythical, as the company in its long existence never made any material contributions to geography. The second was practical, and in a Tew years the great region from. Hud sou buy on the cast to Alaska on the west was dotted with trading posts, each presided over by one of the com pany's agents. They carried their trading expeditions as far down as the southern part of California, and they had many posts in what are now Ore gon and Washington Territory. The system of the company was to dis courage marriage of employes to European women and the result was that the agents took native women and reared a race of half-breeds. There was no such thing sis settle ment of the country on the loug line of trading posts that stretched across the continent The company was very jealous of its commercial supremacy, and the chief aim of its managers was to preserve the country as a great wildorness, since this meant no de crease in the amount of valuable furs. Any encroachment by American emi grants was quickly resented, and to discourage settlement after the Astor experiment, the fiction of the great American desert, winch was said to cover the fairest portions of the west ern prairies, was widely circulated. The connection with the Old "World then was not so close as it is with Central Africa to-day. "The goods of the company, packed aud shipped in Fenchurcli street, leave London, and at the end of the third year they are delivered at Fort Confidence on Great Bear lake, or at any other extreme factory of the company, and at the end of three years more the return furs go up the Thames and into Fenchurcli street again. So in cycles of six years, from age to age, like a planet, the shares in the Hudson Bay com pany made their orbit and dividends." Furs were the only object in life to the servants of the company and the same view prevailed at the main office in London. In 1719 rich copper discoveries were reported at the mouth of a river in the Arctic, but the company refused to send a vessel up to verify the report, and when, nearly thirty years after, an expedi tion was really sent to the northward of Churcbill. the company placed so many impediments in its way that Sir John Barrow said: "They not only discouraged all attempts at norlhorn discovery, but withheld what little in formation came to their knowledge.' They were consistent in this to the end 'and every obstacle was thrown by their agents in the path of "Whit man and other pioneers to Oregon. The struggle after the Revolution was between this great fur monopoly with its jealousy of all colonizing, and the hunters and trappers who were the advance guard of the great emigrant army which m a few years began to set its face toward the west ern shore. The company held its monopoly in the British possessions until 1S70, when it merged in the crown; its control of trade in lands outside, oommonly called Indian countries, which was granted in 1821, came to an end in 1S5D. Of the fruits of this gigantic monopoly, conducted in the meanest and narrowest trade interests, the author says: Perhaps never in history has there been a better illustration of the dan ger and damage to the public of a chartered monopoly. "When a cor- Ioration becomes too powerful for a government, the design or end of that government is a failure. In this case a private interest was enabled to shut off from the crown the settlement and commerce and profits of millions of square miles. It shut off the king dom of Great Britain from efficient growth in North America. If the possession of the Hudson Bay Com pany had reverted to the crown at tho end of a 159 years, it would have been returned as received, a wilder ness. To know in comparison what might have been, one needs only to cross the boundary lino and notice the northern tier of states lying just south of that line. The great Encr lish mistake, therefore, was double. It was a mistake in attempting to take and hold Oregon by trapping as against colonizing, and it was a mis take to sacrifie so largely the English interests in America to a corporate monopoly. Tho tide of emigration Tvas first turned m the direction of Oreron bv four Flathead Indians, who made Iheir way across the continent to St Louis, in 1832, in search of some one wh would put the Bible into their tongue. They failed to find -what .they came for, but they gave such ac counts of the wealth of the far-dist ant land that the imagination of more than one pioneer was iired with the idea of founding a home in tho nn settled territory. Their visit also led to the dispatching of several clerev- men to Oregon by the Methodist Board of Missions. Among these was Marcus Whitman, who, with the Rev. H. H. Spalding.both taking their young brides with them, made the adventurous trip across the plains. Whitman was the first man who car ried a wagon over the Oregon trail and demonstrated that the way was op3ii for the families of emigrants. The slory of his efforts to check mate British plots to keep Oregon among the possessions of the crown, and of his long and perilous ride across the country in the dead of winter to carry news or Hie im portance of making a fight for the - i i -i r A- 11 i ncn territory oi me mr .oriiivcM all this is familiar to the reader, for it is one of the most pic turesque episolles of the history of the coast; but the story in related here with great fullness, and full just ice is done to the efforts made by Daniel Webster, then, seercJjjry of shite, to save Oregon to the Union. But W hitman did more than rouse the patriotism of the secretary of state, which led to the revision of the treaty. He organized in the bor der lands'of Kansas and Missouri a train of 200 wagons, and the next spring saw them headed for the West. The doctor had convinced all doubt ers that there was a good wagon trail to Oregon and that no danger was to be feared from the Indians along the line. All the stories of peril and hardship were manufactured by the agents of the Hudson Bay Company in order to discourage that immigra tion of which they stood in so much dread. So in 1S13 the first wagon parly started the pioneer in the long procession winch was soon to follow. The only serious I trouble encount ered was at Fort Hill, a Hudson Bay Companv post about 100 miles north of the site of Salt Lake City. The agent tried to compel the emigrants to leave behind their wagons and farming tools, but the persistence of the doctor conquered once more, and without the promised escort from Fremont the caravan reached the Columbia in safely. Four members of Lieut Ray's meteorological party are stranded in San Francisco through the blunder ing mananemenl of the signal olhce. These men were civilians who accom panied the party to Point Barrow. The government owed them for two years' pay. amounting for the four to $2,500. When the men were landed in San 1' rancisco a few weeks ago thev had no money, but expected to be paid off there: but there was no money for them. Gen. Hazen was telegraphed to. He replied bluntly: "Discharge the men; there is no money to pay them.' As the men were pennilessomc of the officers gave them money enough to keep them along for a while. The ques tion is, where is the money that these men have earned gone? It was ap propriated uy congress. Gen. Hazen knew that money would be needed to pay the men when they came away from Point Barrow, but it appears that tho appropriation is used up, and men who need their monev are deprived of it by the careless man agement that is so characteristic of much that is done at the signal office. Yes, there is no doubt about it- the use of slang is greatly to be de preciated. It is utterly -without war, rant. If you speak plain English people will catch on to your mean ing- -beg pardon, will understand you just as readily, and your chin- music- that is to say, your conversa tion--will be far more toney - beg pardon again -elegant. It is now de clared, by the way, that the phrase, "It goes without saying' is slang; therefore no self-respecting person will use it hereafter, This goes with out s There we go again! Slang is horrid; but it is so convenient, es pecially when you don't know how to express your thoughts, or when you have no thoughts to express. The Oregon City Courier savs: Eight miles above the mouth or the Sandy river, where the river describes a curve, may be found what is clear ly the works of an ancient race. Here, at intervals of fifty feet, and in a straight line, are a series of shafts or holes, each of which covers an area of, say six by twenty feet, and jndging from the embankments form ed on the sides, must have been a dozen feet in depth. That these ex cavations existed prior to the great- tornado which swept- over this valley about 200 years ago and has left its footprints everywhere, is evident. In three weeks tune all the wheat iu this couutry that is to be shipped at present will have wended its way sea ward, says the Walla Walla States- man. A great deal is held for belter prices by those who are not pressed for money. Never before in the his tory of this country has such speed been known. Lumbermen are preparing to go in to the woods of Maine Xor- the winter. On the Penobscot thev will get from $20 to $30 per month and board. Tho pay last year was from $18 to $23. Within the past eighteen years they have cut, on the Penobscot, 3,142,902, 124 feet of lumber, mostly spruce. Holland, in the la t three centuries, hag recoverd from tho sea at least 90,000 acres. The lake of Harlem be came terra firma between 1810 and 1852, and tho Zuyder Zee is in pro cess of transformation into 500,000 valuable acres. The bill for the consolidation of the towns of Tacoma and New Ta coma has become a law, and the town of New Tacoma. has been done away with as far as legal enactment can effect it. Eastern Washington cattle buyers are paying $12 for calves, $18 for yearlings, $25 for two-year olds and $40 for cows. Church property to the amount of SoOOO is exempt from taxation across the river.
