ASTORIA. OREGON :
St NDAW, ,
MAY 11. 1690
Citj-aatl County OHclat Paper.
2VORTH OR SOUTH OF THE
Tke recent very extensive movement
I railroad construction westward and
coastwise in Oregon and "Wasliington,
predicted in The Daily Mobxixg As
torian of April 23, 1889, promises even
to exceed that prediction. It is doubt
fml 'wbetber there lias ever been pro
jected in any oue planning so great a
Betwork of lines as that now proposed
lot Ue territory west of. what might be
called the "Willamctte-Pnget sound
awridkn. The projected lines of the
Ortgoa Railway Extension Company,
ti Scmthcm Pacific, Northern Pacific,
Allmay Jfc Astoria and Manitoba com
pares all show this general movement
coastwise. It looks very much as if
the Portland darn" had broken and
wkbout much possibility of repairs.
Tke seccssity of reaching to the sea
coast is recognized by all the com
panies, and the rush to the mouth
of the Columbia has fairly begun.
TUcre remains one question still ap
parently undecided in some minds,
aMuacly, whether the greater concen
tration of activity will be on the north
or soBthof the Columbia at its mouth.
We say "greater," for the two sides of
the river will react favorably on each
other, and a great city on one side
Baeans a large town on the other, in
Each of the various roads, and per
haps it might almost be said, each of
the important officials in each road,
has a favorite location to which special
efforts will be directed in securing the
terminal location. A tract already
purchased, hostile feeling towards this
or that person or corporation, or a
desire to thwart the hopes and expec
tations of present far-seeing posses
sors, are the more apparent, but in
reality the least powerful, of the deter
mining causes at work. "Where so
many roads and interests are concen
trated towards oue point, such causes
as those named become of minor
importance aud efficienc The iu
dmdnal or corporation that permits
them to be otherwise, will find it an
expensive mistake. Simple, cold
blooded busiuess judgment of the
fatare (with hobbies and hostilities
laid aside) is essential if the best
choice is to be made.
la contrasting the north and south
shores near the mouth of the Columbia,
three important differences are noted.
First, the "Willamette Talley (irre
epuctive of Portland) has no counter
part on the north, and this Willamette
Valley inevitably must ship from
Astona, and is every year becoming
ore determined to do so. This of
iteelf is sufficient to turn the scale in
favor of the south shore, aud in making
Astoria so large that the various roads
KHst come there, it will thereby
secare for her the first rank as a termi-
Bal ad seaport. The smaller and in
evitable growth will compel the larger.
Second, as Portland herself lies
semth of the Columbia, her importance
assists in deciding in favor of the
soath shore, by drawing all roads
aearer to Astoria. The Columbia
oace crossed in going to Portland, as
k must bo by all the roads the path to
Astoria is shortened aud simplified.
Sack a crossing en route to Portland
is safer, cheaper and more reliable
than transfer across the broader
Third, there is no place on the
Columbia, or in fact on the continent,
where there is such a concentration
of deep water frontage as along the
Astorian peninsula. The transconti
seals! lines must come to the point
whore great deliveries of ocean and
river freight are possible aud where
the greatest number of vessels can
lie. All other points on the
Colambia are merely "riverside"
potats. There are to-day opposite
Kew York, at "Weehawken and Ho-
bokeo, thousands of feet of such
riverade" property unimproved aud
sot utilised, yet with tracks from such
roads as the Erie, Pennsylvania, and
"West Shore, within a stone's throw of
them. This sort of frontage would be
thefweak point of Portland as a sea
port, even if she had a fifty foot
channel to the sea. The deep water
froatage must turn and wind and con
oeatrate itself. This occurs in a penin
sula; Imt at Astoria, with Smith's
Point and Tongue Point, we have a
doable peninsula. Starting a mile up
Young's river, and thence winding
abeat these two peniusnlas and a mile
ap the John Day, there is seaport
rooaa hardly equalled any where in the
The roads now coming into New
York via Jersey City have for years
beea envying the New York Central

beoaase it had uot such a land entrance
by which to compete with the latter. A

tunnel under the Hudson river is
uuder way at immense expense and a
bridge projected to cost tliirty million
dollars, to place the Jersey City road
in New York. But the Columbia
is four times as wide as the Hudson
and any road planning to terminate
on the north shore at the Columbia's
mouth, may sadly regret it ten years,
hence. What each road must lv re
tain of is that it will surely touch and
reach to the future point of concentra
tion of seaport interests. It is not
sufficient merely that it find an outlet
for itspresent business.
THE LAST G. A. R. POST.
Ox the 30th inst comes Decoration

G. A. R. posts wherever floats the
Time with its fleet wings soon bears
away a generation of men; but repro
duction fills the vacant ranks again
and the human race moves on. Like
a river that is constantly flowing on,
so is the unbroken chain of humanity
coming from the eternitj of the future
and pouring into the eternity of the
past Between these two oceans
we iiave the present a narrow
isthmus where we meet, struggle, die
and are lost from sight. The Grand
Army posts, unlike the great mass of
the human race, cannot recruit, be
cause there is no new material. They
may rally the comrades together, they
may gather in the stragglers, but they
cannot fill up the broken ranks. They
may gather around the camp-fires,
but once familiar faces are missing.
They may Bing the old war songs,
but many voices are silent They
may tell the old army stories over
again, but many who once listened
and laughed are silent now. They
meet in the post room; the old ilag is
draped in mourning. The roll is
called, but some comrade fails to re
spond. They read the resolutions of
condolence, and heads are bowed with
sadness. Before another meeting the
funeral bell tolls out the solemn notes
that another soul has departed, and
with muffled drum and flag at half
mast a procession of veterans is fol
lowing another comrade to his final
resting place. Thus time rolls on
and bears away the fallen members
week after week, mouth after month,
and year after year until a quorum
can no longer be rallied and the char
ter goes into decay; there are no min
utes to read except those kept by the
recording angel, and the Grand Army
post has faded from sight and passed
HOW PROTECTION PROTECTS.
In 1807 foreign plate glass sold for
57 cents a square foot We produced
none. A great demand sprang up for
it in this country, mid the foreigners
gradually increased the price to 98
cents a square foot in 1875. At that
point American competition began.
In 1879 the Depauw works of
New Albany, Iud., began to put plate
glass on the market, after sinking
nearly S700,000 in experiments. Dur
ing the ten years following, Ameri
can competition has reduced to about
35 cents a square foot the price of
plate glass that formerly sold for 98
cents. The cost of works for produc
ing plate glass is enormous, and the
development of that industry is neces
sarily slow. But our news dispatches
within a week have recorded the or
ganization of two new plate glass
companies with an aggregate capital
of 31,000,000, and within a year or two
we shall produce all our plate glass, of
which we imported nearly 5,000,000
square feet in 1889, and the prices
will be lower than ever before. The
foreigners charged us double prices
for plate glass when we produced
none. Home competition has reduced
the price C5 per cent, and will reduce
it still lower. Furthermore, the
Depauw works pays its employes 817
a week as compared with 87 for the
same work in Gret Britain, aud 80.50

A suspicious subscriber, who found
a spider in his paper, wants to know
if it is considered a bad omen. Noth
ing of the kind. The spider was
merely looking over the columns of

its web aoross his store door and be
free from disturbance. Ex.

years old, and gives most of his time
