As a highway of commerce it Joea not rank very hih. light draught stern wheel boau carry th local product out to Portland from somewhat like a hundred miles from the city, and the etreaiu is an important outlet to a large lumber district. The country through which it runa is food agricultural and fruit growing region. Oregon City ia like a block of New England transplanted. At thi place tba lira has a fdl of about a hundred feet in mile or thereabouts, and navigation has been made possible by means of a aeries of locks. The banks here are Trend hundred feet high, and along the treats on either hand are residences and orchards. The backs of the river hare been covered over with extensive manu factories of vsrioos kinds, which include woolen nulls, canneries, saw mills and wood pulp and paper mills. The locks vers constructed eighteen years ago by private company, and the state gave a boons of t.MW.OOO. with a conditional proviso by which it can acquire the title to the locks at the end of twenty years. The probability is that this will not b one, however, as it has become so valuable a property that it would require a big sum of money to buy it The locks have enabled the company te develop the uvwt extensive water power in the world. Sluiceways or races have been constructed from the canal above the lock, and they afford an un toiling power equal to the most exten sire manufactures. ' I made a trip from Portland to Oregon City as a guest cf the Oregon Press asso ciation, and the board of trade of the latter place had laid an elegant luncheon a the bluff overlooking the rapids below the falls, and after the feasting and speech making were ended the party was exported through the various works and boa given a chance to judge of the ex tent of the industries of the plitce. If Oregon City is not known as the greatest manufacturing city of Oregon in the ' future I nuas my guess. W. Q. Bkntom. Kn-tero- 1j-- m mrJA Philo Penfield. of Shelby, N.
