PORTLAND'S LEADING ARGU
MEXT AGAINST ASTORIA.
The principal reason given by Port
last! men Thy Astoria "will not rise to
prosnnence as a reaport, is that the
great wheat dealing houses are now in
Portland, and that these houses -will
buy or receive consignments or wheat
aad wool only for loading on ships at
Portland. Thus, for years, until a re
cent date, the motto of about a dozen
"wealthy firms of Portland has been
We are Pertland: Portland is the
sorthwest." A study of this argument
will quickly show its weakness. It is
said that there is no money at
ria. Tins is a mistake
and trill rapidlv become
untrue. The real estate pales of the last
six months of 1SS9 placed about one
and a quarter millions of dollars in the
hands of Astoria men. by sales to out
siders. The year 1SO0 will bring in
about four millions more, and so for
succeeding years. This money is the
basis on which still more can be
brought in by loans secured. This
has been the record of every young
city of the west where outsiders have
lcgun to buy. There is money enough
in Astoria now to start several whole
sale and shipping houses of the larg
est description. Porllaud has been
hurt by using tliis same argument
against Tncoma and Seattle, but she
is still blind, by wishes and self inter
est, to the certain growth of cities out
side of herself.
Again we find, up both the Will
amette valley and the Columbia val
ley, the greatest eagerness, on the part
or producers, to break away from
Portland and ship elsewhere. The
very money wliich makes these Port
land men feel sure of holding control,
has been forced from these producers
by euormons commissions and rates of
interest: and there is no love lost
among the producers towards those
who have gathered in these profits.
The fact that these Portland men are
wealthy, that they have grown wealthy
from the country sonth and cast of
Portland, is the strongest reason avuv
that country will go to Astoria direct,
as soon as the railroads are completed
J COAST LINE RAILROAD TO CAL
IFORNIA. The day is near when the present
absurdly located "through line'' to
California will be a back country road,
and the main highway between two
great states will not bo by a series of
desperate climbiugs over summit af
ter summit or mountain ranges, but
by a naturally low grade line: and As
toria will be on that main highway,
the leading point on its northern end.
Southern Pacific company, is reported
to have said that the Oregon and Cal
One of the promiucnt officials of the
ifomin line was one of the worst pav
ing through freight lines in existence.
Astndy of the feature of construction
or this line would lead any railroad
man to predict this. The Sacramento
Hoods and washouts, the tremendous
grade and climb at Sissons, the worse
grade and climb at the Siskiyous, the
successive humpiugs over summits
between the Bogue Biver valley
and the Umpqua valley and
between the TJmpqua valley and
the Willamette valley, and especially
the side hill, sliding and slide ridden
locations and curves required to reach
all these sunmiils: the rains on these
side hill slepes: and the heavy snows,
not stationary when once cleared, but
slipping and covering and delaying
the most jwwerful rotary plows, are
all difficulties that could be lessened
or done away with on a coast road.
A coast line would not necessarily be
close along the leaeh, but rather on
an upland bench location, with long
stretches of cheap construction; curv
iug somewhat up the principal streams
crossed to lesn the length of bridges.
There would be no snow to blockade
the road in the winter, just when
tonrWs -and travelers are numerous
and willing to spend monev. to avoid
- . ... .... ..
whiter severities. The question would
be chiefly one of close and able engin
eering study to combine the bo,t
into one cheap whole. The
bridges, crossing the streams at
slack tide water, would not be subject
to washouts. The road would gather
local freight from the bottom of the
valleys, coming down hill to it; wagon
roads could be more numerous and
cbcap in the broader lower valleys; the
local business be greater because of
the greater amount of good land in
ifee widened valleys. A system of
laterals up the valley would be a
soarce of increase and strength. The

coast as likely to tap its business and
leseea its haul. When this coast line
ssbttilt, and Astoria connected with
Sub Francisco, Oregon and Washing-
toft -will no longer le penned off in a
corset, or Astoria feel herself off the
. line of travel and activity.
The Astorian again calls attention
to the fact that the railroad should be
completed, fully equipped and in op
cra&on to the seaside by the 1st of
Mxi June. This is a necessity and
aotbiag less will be satisfactory to
tbeeewbo have put their money in
Ute enterprise. This will bring money
iate the place and be of immediate
hcBo&t. Other railroad matters of
greater value and wider horizon will
ipy our attention, but the homely
of the present should not be
ifMted. It is imperative that that
i road be completed in time for
travel of 1890.

3IARIXE NEWS A3ID NOTES.
Two of the regular passenger boats
were at the wharf yesterday. The
Thompson came down in the morning
bringing passengers, and the lietd
towed the Zampa down. The latter
is now loading with lumber at the
West Shore mills.
The steamer Michigan for the
Sound from Portland came down Yes
terday. She has on board 30000
brick which are to be unloaded at
Fairhaven for a new block there. The
officers reported that there is so little
freight at Portland on account of tho
railway blockades that her general
cargo is small and her hold not well
filled. This condition with the brick
on deck makes a rough sea rather bad
for the steamer. If the wind is favor
able she will go out to-da.
The steamer General Milts, which
was chartered for $1000 per month by
Capt. 11. F. Beechcrand taken around
to the Sound from the Columbia river
last December, was taken away from
the charterer last Saturday evening
by the owners. Capt. 13eecher placed
the steamer on the Port Townsend
"Whatcom route, to take the place of
the steamer Point Arena, and had
failed to pay for the use of the vessel,
which was the cause of the change.
The Point Aram was taken from
Capt. Peechcr for the same reason by
the San Francisco owners. Tho de
ficiency amounted to 3300. The Gen
eral Miles will be retained in the
Sound trade, and her owners have de
cided to fulfil the mail contract with
tho government. Tho Point Arena
will run in opposition between Seattle
and Whatcom via Port Townsend and
the lower Souud islands.

A well known jacrchant who has been
greatly benefitted by Joy's Vegetable Sarsa
parilla, desired to glvo it to his wife, who
was very delicate, but out of caution first
consulted his physician, Dr. IV. 2L Griswold
of 50 Market street. The doctor, who is one
of ourlcadin; practitioners objected, saying
he had never seen a sarsaparilla that did not
contain otash, which thinned tho blood;
that his patient did not have any vitality to
lose, and that what delicate peoplo need is
not decreased vitality, but more blood. Ho
however consented when assured that Joy's
Vegetable Sarsaparilla was opposed to the
blood thinning idea of other sarsaparillas,
and that on the contrary by specific vegeta
ble alteratives it promoted digestion, and re
paired nutrition, hence created new blood
and was the very thins for Iccblc people.
