Centralia Chronicle (Newspaper) - October 14, 1889, Centralia, Washington VOL. 1. CENTRALIA, LEWIS COUNTY, WASHINGTON, THURSDAY, OCTOBER NO. 17. WHAT WE WANT. A Good Foundry and Machine Shops. w u, SUCH SHOP. A Good Opportunity for Making a Modest Fortune. The manufacturing institution which Centralia at the present time needs more than any other is a foundry, with machine shops connected, suitable to the size of the city -and the amount of man- ufacturing machinery, of which there is K great deal here. Tiviilv-fivi! mills. Incated in and i i: to this city, mountains. Ships from the Philippine or tiie Sandwich Islands, or from Cali- fornia, Australia, South America or Eng- land will save 700 miles and in towage by taking their wheat or lumber or coal supplies from Gray's Harbor in- stead of from the Sound. Steamers will at least save three or four days in time, and that means much. San Francisco will get Washington coal for less from Gray's Harbcr than from Tacoma, and she will buy in the cheapest market. There can be no question, therefore, of the great possibilities of the new city, and of the rapid growth the moment railroad communication is opened to the coal fields. The entrance to the harbor is about a mile wide. Thousands of ships can find for the machiue and repair shops. The numerous delays now caused by break- age cost a good deal of money. It is to the interest of everybody to have such an institution here, and it ought not to be difficult to raise a bonus for the erection of such an institution. We are now fairly well supplied with retail stores, and we are anxious to add to our manufacturing facilities. Let us begin the work of improvement with a large iron foundry and extensive ma- chine shops. Beyond a certain limit the only solid basis for the prosperity of an inland city is manufacturing. We believe that Centralia is destined to become a great manufacturing center. But in the early stages of her growth every little tug at the wheel by her own citizens helps the wagon along.

The woodsof this country still abound in hear, deer and pheasants, which constitute it a favorite summer resort for sportsman. Of the climate I need not write, for I have done that already in speaking of oilier parts ol AVashington. I see roses, marigolds and pansies in full bloom in the gardens here, and I am told that flowers bloom in January and Febuary. It rains for a day or so in summer; in winter and spring it rains plentifully, but it seldom snows or freezes. The people all speak highly of ite climate and I am inclined tc think it could hardly be better. The now settlers are mostly Swedes, many of whom conuot s.peak a word of English. Very few Irishmen arc here: in fact, I did not meet with a single one, but on Sunday evening I heard the strains of "Come Back to as I passed by a lonely callage by the seashore.

From the hills, on which the residence portion of the city will be built, a glorious prospect can be had of wooded shores and slately rivers, cewell as a clear view out through the heads to the heaving billows of the great ocean. The railroads, coal bunkers, lumber mills, factories and wholesale ware- houses will probably extend back till alone, would anchorage together, and that anchorage amount ot business is as good :is can be had. On entering the harbor one is instantly struck by the magnificiently wooded shores so char- acteristic of Western Washington.
