Aotsks step -towards a railroad
for Astoria trae taken yesterday when
Scsator Mitchell, inbe senate of the
United States, Introdsoed a bill to
perait the Albany fcJMona railroad
to baild a bridge across the Willam
ette and bare n right of way through
an Indian reservation. If the bill
passes, wonder if the road will ever go
ahead? It is earnestly heped the
work may continue to a successful
People of intelligence, education
aad refinement, who last evening
patronised the highly creditable en"
tertainment giving by the young
ladies for the establishment of a pub
lio library, are to be congratulated on
the liberal response they made to the
invitation to do some good for such a
worthy cause. The splendid audience
last night shows that when Astorians
are really interested in a good move
ment they will aid it liberally, and it
also demonstrates the fact that we

fine entertainment without Slaving to

Nevek again in 1890 will The As
tokiax make its appearance, for this
k the last day in the year. The last
day! The old year is passing away to
take its place amid the long line of its
departed ancestors and whatever mis
takes any of us may have made in its
progress it is now too late to rectify,
for the record is just closing and by it
we must be jndgod, and either stand
or fall. Thisis an individual matter,
and every person must think for him
self and decide whether in the past
year his efforts have been more for
good than evil. Into the grave of
eternity where time will soon consign
the year 1890, let us cast the unpleas
ant memories it may have caused us,
and remember only the joyous events
connected with it, and with these in
the storehouse of memory start with
sew resolves for the year so soon to
dawn "upon us.

GoxssKDABitE consistency is shown
by the Oregonian in its earnest stand
or its own state, as manifested in
Maenmi articles of late, as to the
importance of building tip cities on
tius side of the Colombia, and by
urging the extension of a railroad
down the south bank instead of the
botUi. Htiu the same earnest stand
fcaen taken a few years ago, a railroad
would Jong ago have been built to
Astoria aad scores of foreign ships
whwh not-discharge cargoes of mer
cajindiso nt the Sound ports and take
oa crain there, would have done it at
thia port, nnd the city of Portland
would also have been greatly bene
fitted. Now that our friends at the
Wc oitj oa the "Wlllamettee see that
they cannot force deep draught Teasels
to come up there with half their
