TO-MHf S MEETIffi.
Tie Proposition to Be Mafle to The
cexsritfijtAitLi: ixtejiest felt.
The most prominent topic of discus
sion during the week has been the
railroad meeting to bo held at the
office of the Astoria and South Coast
railway company this evening.
The meeting, according to the prin
ted notices sent through the mails,
will be held at 7 o'clock this evening,
"for the purpose of considering and
hiking action upon a proposition made
by the Pacihc construction company
and others to purchase the property
of the company; also to receive a gen
eral statement of the affairs of the
company, and to take such action in
relation thereto as may be thought ad
visable." It had been understood that the
"proposition," for the stockholders to
"consider"' and "take action upon,"
was the resolution passed by the board
of directors of the Astoria and South
Coast railway company, on the 17th
of last month.
This resolution agreed to convey by
deed to any person or corporation
named by William Beid, all the com
pany's assets of whatever character or
description, including its terminal
lands and rights at or near Astoria, in
consideration of which Mr. Beid and
others become personally obligated
lo give bonds in the sum of S100,UOO lo
immediately transfer certain real es
tate of Ihe selling value of S100,0J0,
by deed to the various stockholders or
lo a trustee to be named by them in
security for such lxmds, the sum of
$100,000 and real estate security to be
come the property of the Astoria
stockholders and divided among them
pro rata, should Mr. Beid and his as
sociates fail lo carry out anyone of
the following conditions.
First To fmihl tho road from Warren
ton anil lay track to Sirs. Hint's Ocean
house o:i or before the 1st of May next.
Second To lmikl tho road and lay
track from the center of Young's Lay
bridge to the Necanikum river near
Grime's before tho 1st of July next.
Third To build tho trestle work and
grade from the citj' of Astoria and to
construct the easterly portion of the
Iiridco from Smith's Point to the center
of Yomm'a bny, before tho "list of Ocr
Fourth To construct and complete the
Young's ba3' draw bridge and piers, and
to connect the same with tho westerly
portion, now built, on or before (lie I'.lst
of December, 181)0.
Fifth To construct, complete and have
in operation tho Astoria and South
Coast railway as a standard jjuiiyo road;
the greater jwrtion of it to be sixtj'
pound steel rails, and have trains run
ning from the city of Astoria lo the
Southern Pacific's line near Hillsboro,
on or before tho lst of December, ISM
The above has been ihe subject of
It was understood, however, that
Win. Beid had another proposition,
formulated after the above had been
accepted and agreed upon.
Last week the directors of the road
wrote to him, asking that if there were
any changes or modifications in the or
iginal understanding of a mouth ago. to
be submitted to the stockholders at
the meeting of the 15lh hist, that they
wanted lo have him send it down Jive
days before the date of the meeting.
This request was not comjwed with.
Mr, Cummings, one of Mr. Beid's ad
justauts, came down however, and
has been here since making some re
marks that from Mr. Beid's point of
view are appropriate to the occasion.
Several stockholders have expressed
themselves as opposed to taking Mr.
Beid's bond. There is in some quar
ters a feeling that that gentleman is
playing fast and loose, aud an appar
ent lack of harmony in the truth of
his various statements adds color to
His letters and statements do not
agree as to the assertions contained
therein, aud just what to believe Ls at
times a matter of difficulty to many
who want to believe something, but
find too great a variety of contrary
statements emanating from the same
have gone so far :is to object
to taking his bond. They say, "What's
the matter with us giving him our
bond, in place of he giving us his?
We have till that is of value. We arc
the owners; he is simply an interme
diary; the property, the country
through which the road passes, tho
railroad connections, the traffic and
the prospective profits and aid to the
cjty are the elements of value in the
situation. These wo are asked to look
upon as of no value, unless through
and by Mr. Becd's actions."
Some, indeed, go so far as to say
that the enterprise can get along with
out Mr. Beid; that his policy has been
so vacillating and unsteady, so little
calculated to promote confidence and
insure harmony, that they no longer
have any belief in him or ids methods,
and that he is more hindrance than
help to Ihe whole business.
In support of their position they
cite Mr. Bied's statements; his prom
ises as compared with his performan perferman
ces: his connection with the Pacific
Construction cempany: his purchases
of rails and rolling stock for the As
toria and South Coast railway com
pany, of material and at prices unsat
isfactory to some of the directors.
All this is but a little of what is on
the lips aud in the minds of a good
many men here.
The best policy is one of open frank
ness. Covert hostility will defeat the
best plans, and straightforward state
ments made and maintained in good
faith are best, even to compass selfish
ends and personal aggrandizement
If tho making and maintaining of
straightforward statements is some
thing of which Mr. Beid is incapable,
it is bad for himself, and for any en
terprise with which he Ls iu any man
In a matter like this, however un
palatable, plain talk is best There is
a lack of confidence in Astoria iu Mr.
Beid's methods. There is not that be
lief in him that there should be iu a
man so prominently connected Avith so
important an enterprise, ana it is ihe
Astokian's belief that for this he has
no one to blame but himself.
The matter is not irrevocable. De
lays and mistakes, while always dan
gerous, and often disastrous, are
not without value if they illustrate
that openness and sincerity of pur
pose, unity of sentiment and concen
tration of resources are essential ele
ments of success in the building of a
railroad or any other business enter
prise, and that promises should not be
like pie crust made only to be
It is but just to say that Mr. Beid
claims that much of tho delay and
misunderstanding is due to the action
of the board of directors of theAsto
ria and South Coast railway company.
He expresses his desire and intent to
proceed with all possible diligence in
this matter, and give nis per
sonal attention not so much as
a matter of personal gain as a natural
pride ho feels in prosecuting to suc
cessful completion so great a work.
In this, Mr. Beid will meet with the
hearty co-o)eration of ever citizen of
And now after this lengthy preface
we come to consider what it is that
will be placed before the stockholders
at their meeting this evening. Here
is the subject:
THE PROPOSED RESOLUTIONS.
To Be Laid Before the Stockholders For
Their Consideration this Evening.
Whereas. The finance committee
indicated to New York in writing to
president Beid in November last, jkzit
the directors and a majority of the
stockholders, were disposed, as a
bonus in return for the guarantees
and bonds to build the road to a con
nection with ihe Southern Pacific
lines, to transfer this company's assets,
and consequently certain conditions
defined by C. P. Huntiugton for tho
purchase of this company's first
mortgage bonds, have been laid be
fore the board of directors, and among
other conditions he stipulated that in
exchange for his obligation to pur
chase such bonds, prior to or upon the
declaration of either of the options by
him expressed, the various shares of
the block of the Astoria and South
Co:ist rajlnfad company, held by per
sons other than the Pacific Construc
tion company, and all stock or said
railway, other than that issuedorto be
issued to said Construction company
under its construction contract, was
to be surrendered and cancelled
lltsolcetl, That while the majority
of stockholders or this company have
indicated their willingness as a consid
eration only of and lo secure the con
struction of its railway to the Willam
cltevalley, to surrender and cancel,
the stock referred to this meeting,
while approving of same, recommends
for ihe stockholders' protection that
three (3) trustees lie now ap
pointed by the stockholders lo hold
for them such shares of stock in trust,
subject to the conditions, that an
agreement by such trustees be en
tered into and signed with Mr. Hun
tington, whcreb they will, but not
until after the railway has been com
pleted and connected with the Southern
Pacific's lines in Washington county,
immediately thereafter surrender and
and cancel in Mr. Huntington's pres
ence the shares or slock so transferred
to such trustees iu trust for that pur
pose, but not otherwise, and further
more if said railway is not constructed
to and does not reach a connection
with the Southern Pacific line afore
said on or before the 31st day of De
cember IfiOl, then and in that event
the said three trustees be authorized
to return lothe respective holders and
owners of snch shares the shares 6f
stock individually held aud owned by
them, reserving lo the stockholders
who shall transfer their shares to said
trustees, for the purpose aforesaid full
Iowcr and authority to vole and act
at all meetings of stockholders until
such railway has been actually con
structed to 'Hillsboro and said shares
are thereafter canceled.
Further resolved, That as it is the
universal wish of stockholders that
some guarantee be given for the
speedy completion of the road to the
seaside, they recommend that a con
tract be immediately executed with
the sub-contractors, with bonds for
S30,000, signed by William Beid, to
finish the roadbed, thereafter lay the
track and have trains in operation
from Young's bay bridge to the Ne
canicum river before the 1st of July
next, the contract price for such track
and finishing necessary not to exceed
S1,000 per luile, excluding rails.
The results indicated m these reso
lutions would be eminently satisfac
tory, and if the programme as outlined
were carried out in accordance with
the above preamble and resolutions
there need be no dissenting voice.
After all, it is only a conference, and
all that the stockholders cau do, in
case this meets with their approval,
is to recommend the directors to take
affirmative action thereon.
A careful perusal of the proposition
is recommended. It is published that
everyone will have a whole day to
think it over and thus have "time
enough lo form an intelligent opinion

Tlie Water Washing Over Her Deck.
The old tug Portland which has
been lying lo the east of the approach
to ttie U. P. dock, tried tc-McGintyize
itself yesterday morning. It has for
a long time appeared very tired, and
as if it would liko to seek a waterv
grave. Leaks have spruugin the hull
and the sea has been working gradu
ally in. Early yesterday morning
those who have her in care were not
surprised to find that the tide was
ltoatmg over her decks. Some efforts
at low tide were made to raise her,
but were not successful. She is hard
ly worth the trouble and expense of
being put in condition.

it gets to the olher depot how many
miles woidd the man walk and how
many would he ride?
