Astoria rostson the loft bank of the
Columbia river, twelve miles from it3
mouth. Originally a trading post
founded by John Jacob Astorinl811,
it has grown to be one of the nost
important of Oregon towns. It now
ranks next to Portland as a commer
cial center and contains a population
numbering about 5,000.
Astoria is acurions city. With tho
exception of tho custom house, the
court house and jail, the Catholic
church and some private residences,
it is a city perched upon piles.
Great structures rest on piles.
Bows and blocks are reared upon
piles. The streets are planked and
the planks rest on piles it is a city
of innumerable piles. Seen from the
deck of an approaching vessel it sug
gests the idea of an abnormally grown
Silurian, with its countless leg3 dan
gling in the water.
Standing as it does above the ses,
resting upon a great wooden plat
form, the city knows nothing of curbs
and crossings, sinks and cesspools,
water mains and manholes, or the
strife and cost of greedy contractors.
The surging sea beneath provides a
sewer system with which no human
agency can compete. All the costly
underground job3 of other cities
must be, in Astoria, up and above
The town contains four distinct sec sec
teons: Upper town, middle town,
lower town and slum town. Many o.f
the great canneries are situated in
upper town while middle town is de
voted to private residences. Both of
theso sections have largely succeeded
in creeping ont of the water.
Lower town is the metropolis the
shipping and bookkeeping portion.
Et is wholly over the water and pre
sents the appearance of having been
pushed out to sea by the mountains
which crowd to the water's edge,
Slum town is all seas over and is just
what its name indicates.
All things in and about the town
bear a naut'cal air and smack of tar
aud tars. Everything is fresh and
vigorous save the drinking wator.
Drinking water, however, i3 but very
feebly patronized. One can never
considoran Astorian ashore. He is
always three sheets in the wind half
seas over or half over the sea.
To a newcomer the real estate bus
iness is a pose., and the purchase of
a town lot works a brand new wrinkle
in the experience of tho averago land
lubber. Loaded aboard a Whitehall
boat he is rowed out seaward and
shown a bald strip of ocean, for which
he is asked from $390 to Sl.OOO. If
ho concludes to purchase he figures
on piles, pile-drivers and a dummy
engine. If satisfied with his figuring,
he goes to work, and when his pine
tree foundations aro firmly imbedded
in the hard-pan beneath the swelling
waves, another section is added to
the wooden Silurian, and ho is ready
to build. The teredo and kindred
pests do not exist in the mouth of
the Columbia, hence the pine and fir
foundations of Astoria are more dura
able than at first appear in the eyes
of a Californian.
Some one has styled Astoria "the
American Venice," but it might bo
more appropriately dubbed, "A Paro
dy on the City of Gondolas.'' It does
not stand in the water like Venice,
but over it, like a Tonga village.
Astoria contains the most polyglot
collection of humanity on the Ameri
can continent Tho linguistic med
ley of Babel was a sweet solo when
compared with the Astorian confu
sion of tongues. Among tho fishers
the Celt is scarce, the German scarc
er and the American is a rara avis.
Natives of the Scandinavian penin
sula predominate. Next follow in
numerical strength, Laps, Finns,
Bothnians, men of the Baltic and
Russians, supplemented by Itallians
Greeks and Sicilians, with a large
sprinkling of men from the countries
bordering upon the Mediterranean
Sea. In addition to the foregoing,
one may find every shade of color and
every click of tongue from Tasmania
to Siberia, from Cork to Cairo and
from Patagonia to the Arctic circle.
The place is not remarkable for
anything resembling a compliance
with statutory law, or the require
ments of the moral code, and yet,
crime real, hardpan, substantial
crime does not pan out as largely as
it does in communities numerically
the same, with greater moral and ed
ucational pretentions. True, the jolly
sons of the sea spend their hard
earned dollars in a constant carnival
of coarse pleasures, but this attracts
no special attention.
Considered as a whole, tho fisher
men of Astoria are brave, hardy,
tractable and good natured. They
seem specially created for their peril
ous calling and count their knowledge
of tho world only so far as it relates
to the sea and its toils. I speak of
the fishermen the labor element of
Astoria, not of its citizenship.
Among the latter may be found men
and women of culture and refinement.
Churches are numerous and well at
tended and the public schools are
ably, managed and well patronized.
The place contains two good hotels
and a sprightly daily paper. Many
of Astoria's best citizens came to the
coast as soldiers, and have won their
way to wealth and prominence
Astoria contains a fishers' guild, of
which a great majority of the fisher
men of the lower Columbia are mem
bers. While the membership of the
guild represent widely separated and
antagonistic nationalities, national
differences and the baseless animosi
ties of race and creed are unknown
or ignored. This may result from
the cosmic character of the commun
ity, or from the brotherhood of hard
ship and danger in whicfi its associ
ated. It is a noticeable fact, howev
er, that men of the sea rarely exhibit
the bickering sectionalism of lands
men, and that among them religious
hatreds are as scarce as religious
Chinese perform all the labor of
canning, but the business of catch
ing salmon is rigorously confined to
the whites. A terrible hatred exists
between the white fishermen and the
Chinese Any attempt to fish on the
part of a Mongol wonld cost him his
There is a law which make3 it a
misdemeanor to fish between sun
down on Saturday and sunrise on
Monday. This Inw was enacted in
tho general interest and was at first
universally observed, but the follow
ing incident brought it into disre
pute: When the law was first proclaimed,
and while it was yet universally
obeyed, one Chung Lung, an astute
Celestial, conceived the idea of steal
ing a march on the ever vigilant and
jealous fishermen. In view of the
wholesale absence of the whites, the
crafty Chung Lung deemed it safe,
and certainly profitable, to make a
raid on the fishing grounds from
which his kind was so rigorously ex
cluded. So, in the darkness of one
Saturday night, the Mongol marauder
stole out with boat and tackle and
spent his time in keelhauling for
salmon. Having the whole field to
himself, he was immensely success
ful, and returned in the dark veil of
the morning with a large and valu
Chung's venture proved too hugely
profitable to be kept secret It leaked
ont it was soon oruited about, and
Slum town foamed with excitement
and boiled in bitterness.
Toward evening of the day upon
which the Mongol raider returned
with the stolen salmon, a band of
irate fishermen burst into the Chinese
quarter and pounced upon the hap
less Chung. He was seized and cast
to the ground by a gigantic descend
and of the Vikings, and bound hand
and foot, and with a sack drawn over
his head and firmly fastened, he was
placed on board the boat of a hump
backed Greek and the boat put ont
Chung Lung has nevar been seen
or heard of since. The fishermen say
he is still on the fishing grounds.
When questioned in regard to him
the CLinese answer with a shrug:
"No sabe," but from that day to this
no Chinaman can be induced to vent
ure upon the fishing grounds.
Viewed from the sea, tho water
front of Astoria presents an animated,
scene n quaint and homely picture.
The waters are dotted with boats flit
ting in and out while the shore is
lined with a wilderness of outfits,
comprising boats, nets, reels, drying
racks and knitting lofts, among
which bovs are gamboling while men
are knitting, mending, drying and ar
ranging their nets.
Abreast of the city, and looking
seaward, the grandest fishing spec
tacle in tho world may be seen. To
see the fishing fleet at work is a sight
to be remembered. The long line of
boats stretches as far as the eye can
see. In whatevor direction you gaze
their number see-ns legion, and you
see them flitting about, singly and in
clusters tossed hither and thither
like chips on the tide darting here,
there, everywhere! in seemingl ec
centric flights. On a b right day the
lateen Bails gleam afar off like glint
ing wings, and the liltle boats appear
like so many butterflies perched on
the back of a measureless monster.
The daring of the fishermen
amounts to recklessness. Their skill,
too, is something as wonderful as
Bar salmon and Chinook aro choice
varieties, and can only be secured in
large numbers by braving tho dangers
of the bar.
While great strong ships and steam
ers of iron will wait for days and
weeks for a favorable opportunity to
attempt the dreaded passage of tho
bar, the fisherman heads his little
cockleshell to sea and spends night
and day in tho storm and tempest
But his daring, betimes, is paid for
with all that the brave may pay. Not
a week passes without its list of casu
alties. Many an empty boat is found,
bottom upward, attesting the talo of
its master's temerity and the price it
cost Correspondence S. '. Jinl

J. J. Winant writes as follows to the
There is a man in this town who
states that he came out from England
to Victoria on one of the torpedo
boats. Two were sent out and are
now at Victoria. Their names are
the S7iore and Serf2 He says that they
carried a crew of eighteen men; that
they made most of the passage under
water at a depth of about six fathoms;
that they made twenty-six miles an
hour, and that only one bucket of
fuel was used in the whole passage;
that they had no use for fire-men or
engineer, but that the motive power
was electricity and hydraulics, and
one man managed the entire busi
ness. He states that none of the crew
were allowed to even look at the ma
chinery by which the boat was pro
pelled. They are both of about 300
tons each and 300 feet length. They
could sink below the surface at will,
and rise to tho surface when the
weather is fine, and could in five
minutes take in air enough to allow
them to remain under water three or
four hours. They cruised in the Bay
of Biscay, and were experimented
with and tested. They then crossed
the Atlantic and down the Straits of
Magellan. Two convoys accompani
ed them the Thunderer and Gala
tea, but the torpedo boats had to
constantly wait for them. In bad
weather they would remain under
water and move along among
the fish as quietly as on a lake and
the crew were as comfortable as
though sitting in a house.
