East Portland P O
Multnomah County an incorporated city, is pleasantly situated on the east side of the Willamette River, directly opposite the city of Portland. On the water front considerable of the land is low, subject to overflow, and a portion intersected with sloughs. Thence gradually rising and rolling for a short distance, it merges into an alternately level and undulating country, affording excellent advantages for building purposes. The city presents a thriving aspect, and its advantageous location, together with the fertility of the surrounding country, insures its future prosperity. It is nicely laid out with streets of good width, and contains some substantial brick buildings and fine residences.

The population, according to the census of 1880, was 3918, and is now estimated at 5,000. It is the terminus of the east side division of the Oregon and California Railroad, and upon completion of the Oregon Railway and Navigation Co.'s road from Walla Walla to this point, will be virtually, for a time at least, a terminus of the Northern Pacific. Two excellent public schools are maintained, having an attendance of six hundred and eighty scholars. The churches organized are the Baptist, Methodist Episcopal, Congregational, Episcopal, Scandinavian, German Lutheran, Catholic, and United Brethren. Of secret and benevolent societies there are Masons, Odd Fellows, Ancient Order United Workmen, Chosen Friends, and Patriotic Order Sons of America. A hook and ladder company constitutes the full force of the fire department. An excellent supply of water is distributed through the city, from a spring which is said to be the largest in the State, pouring forth a volume of about 400,000 gallons in twenty-four hours.

The Hospital for the Insane, located here, is a well-conducted institution, and contains at the present time three hundred and forty patients. Upon the completion of the new State Asylum at Salem, it is to be changed into a Reform School. The East Portland Vindicator, a well-conducted paper, published weekly, advocates the interests of the section. Communication is maintained daily by rail with Roseburg, Lebanon, and Brownsville, and twice a day with Albany. Three steam ferries connect it with Portland.
