i iii i i i ll i ii i IINm I III I|1 I I SAGUACHE CRESCENT. Oecker's Letter. No other American city that I know gives such an impression of boundless activity, such a stir of enterprise and noise, such a determination to grow and be big as Seattle. As a busioess city, it is the boa ing business heart of an em- pire, a great railroad center, " with that greatness but half achieved. Tile fact Is, every city on the coast has made up its mind, firmly if not quietly, to bec,,ma the metropolis of the west. Here in the northwest o,e encounters the living rep- resentaOon of the strenuous life. Hero men work together, iu a way unknown anywbere else. Here the chamber-f commerce is seen i, its True glory, it en- gages itse}f in gathering plums. A plum in the western sense, is a new railroad, a new coaling station, a uew manufacturing plant. It falls to the most energetic shaking, and then there are numberless lesser organizations to advance orieutal trade, to secure wheat shipments, to boom the mines of a cer- tain couuty, or to kill jack rabbits. An eastern village may continue a century Without b~iug stirred, with a moment of crowd enthusiasm, but the people of tbe northwest tow,s are constantly ricing and doimz things, sometimes amusing, sometimes serio,~a, always interesting. No western city of importauce is now without its Elks' home, often sue of the finest buildings iu town, where the Elks resort for flair mystic and hilarious rites. Your neighbor in the ear or ie the ho- tel lobby, is much more likely to speak to ~ou than he would be in the east, "Ri,]e anywhere iiJ the eoantry and every ~au you meet will salute you, and if you give him half a chance, he will stop, "throw one.lag over the pommel of his saddle and swap lies. Iu the northwest everythiug seems to have happened with- in the last ten years. Events which would be of epoell making importance in may well be appliet to them--a sort of brisk, actiw, youthfulness. A western town of five (,r ten thousand, not t)nly makes more noise, but does more bunt- heSS than an easlern city of several times the size. One i~ liable t- over estimate western populati,m, but when one g-ts aeq~miuted with these smaller cities, lhere seems a sort of conspiracy to keep him so busy lhat he will bane no o|,|~r tunity oP correcting bin early impres- sinns. Two things the visitor is sure of, immense basic resources and a superb activity of growth. ~That he soes today will be different and better tomorrow~ and he can only faintly forshadow the ullimate greatness of the country• In no part of the entire United States Ass the federal government such large interests as iu the northwest, for it con- trols, not only the area of the forest re- serve, but vast tracts of laud as yet un- claimed by settlers, and immense Indian and military reservations• The United States still owns or controls three- fourths of the entire territory of the five northwestern states, the habitable parts of which are larg,~ and fertile enough to support an immense population, the de- velopment thus far having barely begun. At noon, April the fifteenth, the sal- mon fishing season opened ou the Colu m- bia river. At this hour two thousand netamadooftwine from the finest of Irish flax, aud costing from $300 to $400 each, were lowered by four thousand sturdy fishermen. The salmon season is of three months duration. During this time two men will average twenty fish weighing three hundred pounds each day, for which the canneries pay them about $'20. The great salmon fishing fleet of the Columbia river carries nearly five thousand souls. The deeds of these sturdy Scandinavian fishermen, the acts which they are daily called upon to per. form, are as brave as the bravest. Yet what bird sings of the romance of the gillnet? What poet would thick of glorifying the story of canned salmon? A. DEGKER.
