THE DALLES FERRY NEW WESTERN QUEEN MAKING A CROSSING We are accustomed, in the context of a maritime museum, to thinking of the Columbia River primarily as a great artery of transportation. But it is also, of course, an obstacle to travel by land. Our modern highway bridges are a comparatively recent development; before their advent, the river was crossed by privately operated ferries in a wide range of sizes and types. The ferry on an important route could be quite a lucrative business and there was often intense rivalry among competing ferrymen. J.B. Condon and R.F. Gibbons organized The Dalles Ferry Company, licensed by Wasco County, Oregon, after they learned that a railroad along the Columbia's Oregon bank (the Oregon Railway and Navigation Company's line between

Portland and the Union Pacific's tracks) would soon reach The Dalles. They rightly expected to attract a large volume of freight and passengers bound for the Yakima country and other northern points. Their ferry, the Western Queen, was built at The Dalles in 1879. She was a side-wheel, wood-burning steamer of 95 gross tons, 71 feet long and 25 feet broad. The need for a helmsman was eliminated by picking up an underwater cable over a drum to hold her on course. This arrangement did not present an obstacle to other river vessels, as an overhead cable would. George Roland and James Foster were already operating a ferry between The Dalles and Rockland, Washington, under (continued on page 2/





FROM THE QUARTERDECK "Welcome aboard!" That time-honored expression of nautical hospitality greets everyone who signs on as a new member of the Museum. I write the words, sometimes barely legibly, on the new members' cards, but I write them on behalf of all of us- staff, Trustees, and other members- who believe in and support the Museum. No matter how often I write them, the words are sincere. It truly is a pleasure to welcome new interest and participation in the Museum's endeavors. During September, nearly three hundred individuals and businesses signed on as members, most in response to a oneday local drive. With their numbers, the Museum's roster of active members now exceeds two thousand names. In the coming months and years there will be continued membership gains, as indeed there must be if the Museum is to grow and improve. Inevitably, a point will be reached at which it becomes impossible for the director to personally review every new membership and membership renewal. But, automation and computers notwithstanding, we'll go on saying, "Thanks," and, "Welcome aboard!" And we'll mean it. Michael Naab, Director

MUSEUM RECEIVES FRED MEYER GRANT A grant of $55,000 from the Fred Meyer Charitable Trust, to be used to construct and equip an 1,800-square-foot workshop building adjacent to the Museum, was announced by Museum President John McGowan at the annual meeting on October 6th. Work on the new structure, which will be sided with cedar shingles and landscaped to complement the Museum building, will begin this winter. The completed project will provide more space for exhibit preparation and production, etc.; remove dirty and potentially hazardous activities from the Museum building; and increase available space in the Museum for artifact storage and conservation.

The New Western Queen at The Dalles landing

license from Klickitat County, Washington, but many of the Western Queen's investors lived in that county and they pressured the County Commission into granting their own vessel a license and depriving Roland of his. Under Washington law, owners of land adjacent to ferry crossings were to receive preference in licensing, so Roland regained his after demonstrating to the County Commission, on November 13, 1882, that he owned the Rockland landing. His opponents were determined, however, and Roland's license was permanently revoked when they advanced evidence that he had "failed to keep sufficient number of skillful and discreet ferrymen." Henceforth, the Western Queen would provide the only ferry service al The Dalles. Meauwhile, Lhe cuuflicl uver ferry rights had, on some occasions, erupted into fistfights . In 1898 the original vessel was replaced by the larger New Western Queen, a side-wheeler of 120 gross tons, 75½ feet long and 38 feet broad. Ferry rates approved by the Klickitat County Commission in 1907 ranged from 25¢ (one way) for a person on foot to 75¢ for a horse and vehicle or a ton of freight . Ferry traffic at The Dalles decreased after James J. Hill's Great Northern and Northern Pacific Railroads completed the "North Bank Road" along the Washington side of the Columbia in 1908. The New Western Queen was sold that same year for $8,000.00. She continued to operate, but changed hands frequently until finally acquired by Charley T. Smith, a well known veteran ferryman. She was stripped of her boilers and metal fittings and then discarded (sometime after 1920) after her replacement by a tug and scow. The engine room bell is now in this museum's collection. Other ferries provided service at The Dalles until the highway bridge opened on December 18, 1953.

"FRONTIERS IN OCEANOGRAPHY" Recent discoveries during oceanographic research conducted off the Northwest coast will be the subject of a series of slide lectures presented in the Museum's Kern Room, January 21-24 (Monday through Thursday) from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. each evening. The lectures will be open to the general public and no registration is required. Each session will feature a different speaker and there will be question and answer periods. The lectures are jointly sponsored by the Oregon State University Extension Office, the Museum, Clatsop Community College, and the Astoria Chamber of Commerce. The co-ordinator is Jim Bergeron (503) 325-8625.
