Summary

Neither in number nor in intensity has Oregon suffered from earthquakes, and so far the subject is one of scientific interest only. The number of earthquakes on record to date is thirty, and these appear all to be of tectonic origin. There is not an actual, but only an apparent seismic hiatus between California and the state of Washington.

Oregon needs at least one complete seismograph, and an accurate study of this important and interesting subject should be begun at once.
