This county is a part of old Klamath county, and is bounded on the north by the State of Oregon, on the east by Siskiyou, on the south by Siskiyou and Humboldt counties, and on the west by the Pacific Ocean.As its name signifies, it is the northern extremity of the State.It has been said that Del Norte county is years behind Humboldt, its immediate neighbor on the south, notwithstanding that its natural resources are far greater.Humboldt we believe, possesses more arable and grazing land than Del Norte, but this advantage is outweighed by the latter county's more extensive timber lands and mining prospects.The backwardness of this county is variously accounted for.Some say that outside capital, willing to assist the development of the county, has been discouraged, and with its customary shyness has sought other channels, accompanied by the enterprise and new blood which is so beneficial when engrafted upon old communities or infused in any business system.We hardly think that any spirit at variance with the characteristic Californian hospitality is to be attributed to our northern sister, and that the foregoing allegation cannot be true; but would prefer to believe that the old Del Norte life and energy, taxed as it has been by its necessities for many years, is not now able to display its old ambitious enterprise.Del nortans are, however, beginning to awake to the fact that their county has been for years failing to attract any material portion of the army of immigrants which has been pouring into the State for the past few years, if indeed she has received any share, and a more concerted spirit has been aroused not only to present her opportunities to this class, but to act upon the government at Washington in the interest of the harbor improvements at Crescent City, and the securing of an appropriation for the opening and perfecting of the navigation of Smith River.These improvements effected, and a comprehensive system of public roads inaugurated and prosecuted to keep pace with, or rather in advance of the coming of immigration, will give the county an opportunity of recovering from the languor under which she has so long suffered.The past two years have witnessed an immigration into California, which, with the increased stream of the next few years, will traverse and inspect every portion of the country.This immigration is the most desirable of any that settles in the Union.It comes with money, business ability and energy, and makes its presence felt instantaneously.It is the element that is trebling the population of the southern country and making even the arid lands blossom and become fruitful. Attracted by our climate it comes with its varied experiences in lumbering, milling, farming, fishing, dairying, mining and prospecting, and it only remains for the opportunities and possibilities of this county to be fairly presented to them to insure a fair and proportionate consideration at their hands.Railroad connection will follow regulated by the healthy competition of ocean carriers, and in ten years we expect to see Crescent City a town of the second class, or as large as the Eureka of to-day, and also quite a large manufacturing and business center at Smith river.
At present statistics show lumber manufacturing to be the principal industry of Del Norte County.Mining formerly took the lead, but that pursuit has diminished.The mining of early days was principally at Myrtle Creek, on the South Fork of Smith River, at Happy Camp (where the industry is still carried on), and in the vicinity of Crescent City.The statistics of the express companies show large shipments of gold dust from the few claims worked and fabulous in proportion to the number of men engaged in mining.There was an exodus of miners from Del Norte at the time of the Fraser River excitement, and again at the time of the discovery of the Comstock, so that the mountains have not been prospected with the assiduity of other localities.Wherever time, experience and money have been invested in prospecting and mining here, good results have followed.
The possibilities of the stockraising and dairying businesses are also very great.A surplus of the present production remains for shipment, even after the mining, lumbering, and milling elements of the county are supplied.It is a very fertile dairying country, and the product might be increased a hundred fold.Wherever the cereals have been cultivated very satisfactory results have followed.The number of bushels to the acre has frequently been surprising.The soil is generally of a rich color and very deep, and a humid atmosphere prevails, particularly in the neighborhood of the coast.
The difficulty of road making has always been a serious one in this county, the nature of the country preventing construction except at great expense.Years ago this difficulty was partially combatted by the organization of a joint-stock company, which built the Crescent City and Yreka turnpike road.There are no roads up and down the Coast, only trails, and scarcely defined at that.

The Indian population exists by fishing, hunting, and working for the whites.Out of three hundred and fifty-three in the county eighty-two live on the Klamath reservation.About fifty-seven of them live in the neighborhood of Happy Camp-the balance near Crescent City.Their habits and superstitions are an interesting study.They have their own laws, currency (a rare shell), and preserve many of their aboriginal customs.With this tribe, as with most of our Indian populations, contact with the whites only had the effect of merging into their character most of the vices and none of the virtues of the dominant Caucasian race.A mere fragment of the tribe still exists; it is decreasing rapidly, and a few years more will see their extinction as a tribe.

The following statistics will be of interest:-

Population (census of 1880)- Whites, 1700; Indians, 353; Negroes, 7; Chinese, 409- total, 2669.Number of school children, 478; teachers, 11.Number of voters, 690.In area the county has 1,024,000 acres, of which only 74,749 are carried on the assessment rolls.In available timber lands there are 258,700 acres, which, at the most conservative estimate, will furnish material for hundreds of years to come.At present there are six saw mills, with an average capacity of 130,000 feet per day.The amount of manufactured lumber shipped from Del Norte is estimated at 18,000,000 feet per annum.The value of real estate other than the city and town lots was $378,823; improvements on same $163,842; city and town lots, $36,700; improvements, $137,860.Total value of all property assessed, $1,067,093.


The Land Office for this district is located at Eureka, Humboldt County, Cal.

The government of the county, as at present constituted, is as follows:

SUPERIOR JUDGE - James E. Murphy.


SHERIFF - Charles E. Hughes

TREASURER - George W. Tack

ASSESSOR - William H. Woodbury

SURVEYOR - Albert H. Cleveland




SUPERVISORS - First District, Ewald Vorlander; Second District, Samuel Crandell; Third District, John N. Mc Vay; Fourth District, John R. Nickel; Fifth District, Horace Gasquet

JUSTICES OF THE PEACE - Crescent Township, Dougald S. Sartwell and Thomas Duffey; Smith River Township, James Brooking and Peter Costello; Happy Camp Township, Cornelius Gordon and Stephen S. Colby

CONSTABLES - Crescent Township, Fred. A. Freund and Robert J. Jenkins (Deputy Sheriff); Smith River Township, Silas A. Moore and Frank Frame (Deputy Sheriff); Happy Camp Township, De Witt C. Barney and Isaac E. Cade (Deputy Sheriff).

In the present undeveloped condition of the county a large majority of its business interest are centered in Crescent City, the county seat, which is situated on an open bay, just south of Point St. George, tow hundred and eighty miles north of San Francisco, by sea.Connected by trail with Trinidad - distance, sixty miles southeast, and by wagon road with Jacksonville, Oregon, with which place it has tri-weekly stage connection - distance, one hundred and twenty-eight miles.The steamers Crescent City and Mary D. Hume are regularly engaged in the trade between this port and San Francisco - the latter touching at several way ports, and making the trip about every twelve days in good weather, and the former going direct, and making the round trip in from seven to eight the summer time, when northerly winds prevail, this harbor affords fair shelter, but during the southerly winds of winter it gives hardly any protection to vessels, and a great deal of time is wasted waiting for opportunities, between storms, to land and receive cargoes.A very good harbor for all seasons might be made out of this by constructing a breakwater or seawall from Battery Point to a large rock lying south of it.Attempts have been made to secure an appropriation for this purpose from the Government, but they have resulted in nothing more than a survey.An estimate has been made that the cost would be about $3,000,000.The advantage to the coast, besides its value to this productive county, would be very great.A harbor of refuge would be created, where very much needed, in a long line of shelterless ocean front.The underwriters are well aware of the importance of this improvement, and have figures to show that the work should be seriously considered in Congress.While a much less amount would render the harbor comparatively safe, the above mentioned sum would secure a permanent and perfect haven of large capacity.The population of the town in about one thousand.It possesses two churches - Roman Catholic and Methodist Episcopal - a new Court House, costing $12,000; a large school house, with an average attendance of one hundred and forty children, four hotels, a weekly newspaper - Del Norte Record, edited by Mr. J. E. Eldredge - a saw mill of 50,000 feet per day capacity, owned by Messrs, Hobbs, Wall & Co., and one of 40,000 feet, owned by the Lake Earl Mill Co., a tannery, brewery, shipwright's shop, a wagon shop and several extensive general business houses.

The business of Messrs, Hobbs, Wall & Co. employ two hundred men.Their property embraces the mill, a shingle and box factory, four and a half miles of substantial railroad to the woods, a large general store and a controlling interest in the principal wharf and steamship business.In 1883 their mill turned out 8,250,000 feet of lumber and 8,000,000 is about the average output.

The mill of the Lake Earl Mill Co. produced about 6,000,000 feet of lumber in the past year.

The hotels are the Del Norte, American, Bay and the Crescent City.The Del Norte Hotel is conducted by Mr. Ed. Yates, a gentleman of long experience as a caterer, and ever alive to the requirements of his guests.The Del Norte contains a large number of rooms well furnished and comfortable, and its table fare is really good.

Crescent City was first settled in the spring of 1853, and was incorporated as a city in 1854.In a year it grew from a place of one house to a city of three hundred houses, and over one thousand inhabitants.Through decline in the mining industry Crescent City wasted steadily from about 1859 until the manufacture of lumber commenced, some years later.That industry with what little mining is still carried on, and the dairying, agricultural and stockraising interests, sustain a solid and steady business in the town - not fluctuating much, but steadily enriching that portion of the community which is thrifty, intelligent and alive.The old spirit that prevailed in 1853 still exists, and the trade of a great county of immense resources will always be attracted to Crescent City by the element that represents it.

A trip to Del Norte includes much experience that is enjoyable and healthful, and can be made in the season in twelve days, giving the visitor about nine days in the county.The sea trip by the steamer Crescent City is just about of the right duration for those who are not expert sailors, and then the steamship people are very solicitous about the comfort of passengers.The nine days is amply sufficient time to "square" one self at Crescent City and see all that is interesting in the county.There is much that is beautiful among the towering redwood forests along the rock-bound coast and in the mountains.the climate is all that could be desired, and the delights of a camping trip can be imagined.The spoils of the average hunting party is very large, while the prolific streams afford a substantial reward to the gentle fisherman.But best of all comes the glow of health from recreation in the mountain wilds, and the recuperation which a sojourn in wooded solitudes brings to the active worker.

A post office, situated ninety miles east of Crescent City, on Indian Creek, near the Klamath River.Happy Camp is the oldest settlement in the county, having been established in 1852 by a roving party of characteristic "Forty-niners", who, although much annoyed by Indians, developed the most important gold mines of the county.Between sixty and eighty miners are at present engaged in the neighborhood and steadily earn reasonably good wages.The several business houses of the Camp do a thriving trade.All goods for the Camp are packed from Crescent City on mules, at a good round rate for freight, which only high "pay dirt" would stand.

LINCOLN POINT (See Crescent City)


PINE GROVE (See Crescent City)

REQUA (See Crescent City)


A post office town situated on Smith River, three miles from its estuary and twelve miles by wagon road, through a densely wooded belt, from Crescent City.The Jacksonville Stage Line's route passes through this place.The town has a bright and bustling appearance, without the incomplete air of many new places.All the residences and business houses are tastily finished and of solid construction.The town depends upon the extensive farming, dairying, stockraising, lumber manufacturing and salmon fishing pursuits of the neighborhood, and has a large, active and well to do population contributory to it.This valley, in fact, is the only important pastoral region of the county, and from it comes all of the surplus farm and dairy produce.As the several industries of the valley are developed Smith River may be expected to grow in population and wealth.The Del Norte Commercial Co. (R. D. Hume, President) operate the largest lumber manufacturing business of this section.Their mill on the river is of large capacity and is connected with the lumber camps by a railroad three and a half miles in length, over which runs a locomotive and substantial rolling stock.Ocean vessels, schooners and small steamers make landings at the mill's wharf and carry lumber to various ports.The improvement of the Smith River entrance is being urged, that vessels may come in at all seasons.Two smaller mills are operated by Bailey Brothers and Wicktor Ohlson, respectively, and the town also boasts a shingle and flouring mill.The business houses of Smith River consist of two hotels, a livery stable, two general stores, a drug store, a blacksmith and machine shop, a barber shop, a watchmaker's shop, jewelry store and a complete millinery establishment.These, with three saloons and several cooper's shops in the neighborhood, make up the list.Business seems to be brisk and finances appear easy with all the branches of trade, and some extensions and improvements are under way and in contemplation.Besides the Jacksonville Stage which touches at Smith River, going each way three times a week, there is a daily stage connection with Crescent City.A stay at "The Corners" - another name for Smith River - is agreeably provided for by the conveniences of the Valley House, conducted by Mr. McVay.
