Mr. Bartlett informed me that -when Pier No. 3 was completed, there would be ample dockage space and equipment to load at the same time, nine steamers of the 9,000 ton class. Think of what this means, 81,000 lonnuge taking on Oregon cargoes at an Oregon port. Is it any wonder that optimistic Astorians have an op timistic picture of the future? The Port of Astoria docks are too big for only Astoria, that is, if they tnd Mr. Bartlett informed me that were intended to handle only Astoria it will cost $1, 200,000 when com-1 products.

The day I vlsiteu the dock, the steamer Eastern Cloud was taking ca 6,000 tons of flour and was to sail for New York for orders which meant that the flour, made lrom Oregon wheat, manufactured in Oregon mills, loaded from an Ore con elevator and slilpptj from an Oregon port, was destined to" a Eu ropean country. I'he As;oria Flouring Mill Co., Mill a'o. 1, has a capacity of 1.200 barrels at flour per day and their Mill No. located on the Port of Astoria l'ier No. 1, a six story concrete mill, .ma a capacity of 4,000 barrels per The Port of Astoria owns and oper ates the 20-iuch suction dredge Na- loma. J. C. Ten brook is superin tendent of dredging, nnd he keep.i ;he dredge working night and day f.il.ug in the tide fluta and the dock sites. The dredgo averages 280, 00i! cubic yards of material each day and costs about $9,000 per month to C orate. The Port commission are now contemplating the purchasing oi an additional dredge. The piers of the Port of Astoria are busy placet, and to keep every thing running smoothly. It requires an experienced man to direct the han dling of cargoes, placing of cargo outfit, etc., and George E. Walters does this work. H. L. Tabke who received his training with transcon tinental railroads, looks out tor all traffic arrangements and has com piled a comprehensive traffic anu tariff book which all shippers can readily understand. W. A. Hans- mm. an nnplnoop n f vaah n t ence, assists Mr. Bartlett in the gen eral supervision and scheme of the big undertaking. The officers of the Port nro B. P. Stone, president, Geo. W. Sanborn, , vice-president, Geo. W. Warren, secretary, Frank Patton, treasurer and Dr. Alfred C. Kinney. commissioner. G. Clyde Fulton pas ses on an legal questions. On account of lt structure and fire fighting facilities, the Port of Astoria has the lowest insurance rate ot cny pier or piers on the Pacific coast. , This fact alone attracts large shippers who storo their merchandise awaiting shipment. Though the Pert ot Astoria piers nave oeen operated for only a few years, and two of them are incom plete, the not earnings of the Port laet years were 5 6-10 per cent after au operating, expenses wars deducted.. In building, Astoria has built for the future anu that future is assured. And while I am v.riting cf auu thinking of port development, tha tnouglit occurs to me that it is not too early to begin to think of the Port oi Si. Helens or the Tort of Colum bia County. We nave miles of valu auie water frontage whicn would nt ford Siites tor luauy industries; at me 'pie&eiu tuna our saipments ibjc'.i a considerable figure and will increase as tho years go by. Of course we want us many steamers to como to St. Helens us we can accomodate ana have business tor, but we want .industries to furnish the cargoes, if we cannot turuish a full cargo, tlio t'ort of Astoria Qocks is a good piuce to assemble the cargo. 1 believe uiui ii we contemplate forming a port district, that it would be auvia uble to join with Clatsop oounty 'llio interests of Columbia and Clat sop are ideutical, lumbering, logging. usiung aud dairying. We bave many tr.eiids in Ast jria and would be as- jurea oi a fair deal. But nt matter with whom we join, it is time for us to begin to think of our port facil- The commerce of the Far East is now jusst beginning to como to the Pacific coast. The Columbia river, with its 40 leet of water at the bur, is safe at all times for navigation for all classes ot vessels. Astoria, with its great harbor improvement and docks, has facilities for the rapid unloading aud loading of cargoes. When a steamer enters the Columbia, there is a chance that it migut como further up the river it adequate ship ping facilities are available and it seems to mo that now is ins time lo.' St. Helens and the entire Columbia county to begin to think of what they had best do iu order to got their share of the business and by co-op-erution with other established river ports, work in the great scheme ot port development. I believe it would be a good idea for the Commercial bodies ot Clals kunlo, Hainier and St. Helens to havo a joint meeting and go into thla mat ter thoroughly, and, if possible, out line plans tor future work.
