ASTORIA AND ITS NATURAL WEALTH, A Fresh Water Inland Port of Great Commercial Importance. TIMBER AND FISH LEAD. Headquarters of the - Salmon- Packing Industry of the Northwest. THE BIVER'S ENORMOUS YIELD. Enterprises Giving Employment to Thousands ani Offering Induce ments to Capita!. ASTORIA, Ok., June 22.— Astoria is sit uated at the mouth of the Columbia River, it>:ream discharging nearly or quite as much water as the Mississippi pours into the Gulf of Mexico and draining a section of country greater in extent than the en tire area of the New England States, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West : Virginia and Ohio combined, or about 10 square miles. In a word, it is com puted that the Columbia water-shed covers ; an area equal n> that of one-sixth of the whole of the United States. For hundreds of miles inland from its mouth (with the exception of obstructions at trie Cascades and the Dalles which are already under course of removal by the general Government) this magnificent river affords free navigation for river steamers, by which the diversified products of the imrnens 1 section of country tribu tary to it may cc conveyed either to mar ket for home consumption or to Astoria, at the month of the river for shipment to foreign or domestic ports. From the point where the Columbia j enters into the Pacific Ocean the country it traverses has ail the diversified re sources of an agricultural, pomolo<:ical, pastoral and timber and mineral section. For nearly 200 miles inland along its course the country bordering on either Bide of the river is darK with a heavy growth of the very finest merchantable timber, while its waters are alive with the unexcelled Chinook salmon and numerous other varieties of food fishes, the whole now constituting one of Astoria's staple industries, giving employment to an army of fishermen and necessitating the dis bursement in this one industry alone of more than $1,500,000 annually. A single glance at the geographical posi tion of the city of Astoria, distant only ten miles from the Pacific Ocean, should Map Showing the Location of Astoria and Surrounding Country. be sufficient to convince the most incredu- 1 lous that, if the chief seaport of the prod- j nets of the Columbia River basin must be j at the mouth of the great river of the West, Astoria's location is altogether un approachable. The distance from the sea into the har- • bor limits of Astoria is but ten miles, so j that the cost of bringing a vessel in from sea is necessarily less than at any i other harbor accessible to deep-sea ships : on the North Pacific coast. With a straight channel at the entrance to the river not : less than two miles wide, and with thirty feet of water at mean low tide, subject to a ; rise of from six to ten feet at high water, with a fair wind vessels of iarge tonnage C&B often dispense with the aid of a bar ; tug and sail safely to anchorage in front ol the city. Astoria has a water frontage | of five and a half miles, where ships of , any tonnage can lay at the various wharves or come to anchor in the stream. Though situated so close to the open ocean Astoria has the special, exclusive and decided advantage of being a fresh water harbor, a blessing duly appreciated ■ by every salt-water navigator bringing his ship's barnacled-covered bottom into port. ; That destructive pest, the teredo or pile worm, cannot exist in Astoria harbor, i Piling on the water front of Astoria, ! driven thirty or forty years ago, is to-day sound and in serviceable condition. The ravages of the teredo upen wharves j and logs at salt-water ports can be par- j tially estimated when it is stated that ; Seattle, on Puget Sound has inaugurated j work on a ship canal, which will connect i the water of the sound with Lake Wash ington, a body of fresn water to the east of j that city, the work costing $5,000,000. It js a saving of time and money to ship- I owners to have the vast accumulation of barnacles and other marine growths inci dent to a long voyage, and collected below the water line of their vessels, as 1 effectually cleared off as though they have been scraped in a drydock. This benen"- i cial result accrues to every ship that visits J Astoria, the only fresh-water seaport on ! the I'acitic Coast. The great jetty at the" mouth of the j j Columbia River was commenced by the j Government in 1885. and is now com- | ! pleted. The Board of United States En- j gineers, which devised the plan of its ! construstion, estimated its cost at about 13,000,000, but nature itself has so ably assisted in crowning with success the bril- ; liant conception and design of the engi neers that it will be finished at a cost of ! $500,000 less than the original estimate. The beneficial effect of the construction of this jetty has met the most Banpuine expectations of its promotors. The jetty \ | has been extended more than four miles ; seaward in a northwesterly direction, starting from the south bank, thus virtu- ! ally contracting the immense body of water flowing out of the moutu of the river into a space of le^s than four miles, instead of eight nii!e.> as formerly. The I bar nas virtually ceased to exist. This jetty makes Astoria a seaport of the i first magnitude. There is an open, straight, wide and easy channel, through which j any vessel may enter as easily as into any j harbor in the world. Astoria is the headquarters of the I salmon-packing industry of the Northwest, ' and distributes yearly the entire pack of j the Columbia River, amounting to almost 500,000 easel yearly, valued at $3,000,000, j '. and consuming 00,000 boxes of tin plate, j I Formerly the greater portion of this pack ! w;is shipped foreign, but as the peerless ! qualities of the royal ChinooK became | more generally recognized, the homo de mand increased correspondingly, and now j ; almost tne entire pack finds a ready sale i in the United States. In wages and sup- . i plies the amount paid out by the canners ASTORIA, OREGON, ON THE COLUMBIA RIVER. : in Astoria for each season's operations i foots up about $1,500,000. With the enactment of proper laws for the protection of tish and the establish- j ment and maintenance of hatcheries on an adequate scale, the salmon industry may be made yerpetual and must always occupy a prominent place among the in fractions to competing lines of railroad. Lasi year the total amount of salmon dis tributed from Astoria, including the spring and fall parks on the Colnmbia ana fall packs at other points tributary to As toria, was 658,600 cases, of which 481,600 rases comprised the spring pack of the Co lumbia River. With the completion of the railroad now under construction to transcontinental connection, Astoria will at once become a formidable comri?titor for the handling of : the Alaska salmon pack, averaging ov<jp 750,000 cases yearly. At present the bulk ; of this business is controlled in San Fran ' cisco, but Astoria's advantage geograph ically places her in a position to bid on more than even terms against her Califor nia rival. The establishment of a regular and frequent steamer servic; between As toria and Alaskan points offers to capital indurpment3 which will readily command attention. The city of Astoria has thi- year com pleted a system of water works in which its citizens feel a high degree of justifiable pride. The works are of much more than passing interest, both by reason of their exceptional completeness, which an intel ligent use of the natural advantages has made possible, and by reason of the mag : nitude of the results achieved by a very moderate outlay. The supply is taken from Bear Creek, a i mountain stream 11}^ miles from Astori3. 1 The elevation above tide water of the di i verting point on Bear Creek is 580 feet. It terminates in a reservoir of 6,250,000 gallons capacity. As a result of the com pletion of these works and an abundance- of hydrants connected with the street mains, the city is favored with fire protection not surpassed anywhere. The main line con duit discharges on the new reservoir at an elevation of 420 feet. The total cost of the works amounted to $220,700, which has been raised by the issue of bonds. For many years Astoria has had the reputation of bf ing the largest city in the United States having no railroad connec tion. Many efforts have been exerted by its citizens to induce capital to construct a road to transcontinental connection, and more than once companies have been incorporated and the work commenced, but from a combination of circumstances it failed of completion. During last year, however, the citizens of Astoria raised a magnificent subsidy, which has resulted in the incorporation of the Astoria and Columbia River Railroad by A. B. Hammond, a capitalist of Mon tana, and his associates, who are under contract to build the road in three years, from June 1, 1X95. It is confidently ex pected, however, that two years from that date will see Astoria connected by rail with Portland on the Willamette. The Astoria and Columbia River Railroad, now under construction, comprises sixty two miles of line eastward between Astoria and Goble (where the Northern Pacific Railroad crosses the Columbia) together with fourteen miles of line (Seashore" road) acquired by the Astoria and Columbia River Railroad Company, extending from Youngs River and Bay at the west end of the city of Astoria to Seaside. Also a line three miles in extent (Flavel Extension) will be built from Warrenton on the Sea shore road, to the towosite of Flavel at the mouth of the Columbia River. The line from Flavel to and through Astoria will be built and completed by July 30 of. the present year, and into this THE SAN FKANCISCO CALL, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 24, 1896. city for summer seaside excursions before the 30th of this month. It is a source of great satisfaction to the citizens of Astoria, who have so liberally subsidized the A. and C. Railroad Com pany to build this line, to observe that great care is being exercised that a road as nearly perfect as possible shall be made. Easement curves and grades are to be pro vided for, substantial structures and bridges constructed — first cost in this in stance does not oblige the engineer to sac rifice the good line he has macie out. The best 75-pound steel rails are to be used throughout. These have been purchased in England, and tureecargoes were shipped to Astoria in January and February last and should arrive by the middle of this month. The line follows the left bank of the Co lumbia Iliver from Goble to the mouth of the river, a down grade in the direction of the heavy traffic. The thousands of vis itors who annually flock from the interior to the favorite seaside resorts of Clatsop Beach will be able this summer to take the cars at Astoria, reaching the ocean after a pleasant fifteen-mile ride. There is no finer bathing beach to be found in the world and doubtless this business will grow, as the oeauties of the seashore of Oregon become more generally known. E. C. H olden, Secretary. COMPELLED TO RETREAT. American Filibusters Driven Off by the Spanish After Landing Arms in Cuba. MADRID, Spain, June 23.— A dispatch to the Imparcial from Havana says an ex pedition consisting of 200 Americans, hav ing a quantity of dynamite and a number of Manser rifles, landed a few days ago near Cardenas. They were attacked by a Spanish force and compelled to retreat. The Spaniards captured the munitions of war ami are in pursuit of the filibusters. WASHINGTON, D. C, Juna 23.—Re ports to the surgeon-general of t lie Marine Hospital Service from the United States Sanitary Inspectors in Cuba show terrible increases of death from contagious dis eases in the island. Dr. Caminero, the official at Santiago, writei that "smallpox is raging epidemically and the cases, which can be counted by the hundreds, are in creasing daily." The American Consul at Sagua La Grande reports that yellow fever is on the increase among the troops at that point, and from Cienfuegos the Consul reports forty-nine deaths from smallpox and in creasing yellow fever for the past week. m SALT LAKE HANE MUSUSNDS. The Assets More Than Sufficient to Pay Depositors in Full. SALT LAKE, Utah, June 23. —The Bank of Salt Lake closed its doors this morning and notices were posted that the sole pro prietor, J. H. Bacon, had made an assign ment to Frank W. Ross for the benefit of the creditors of the institution. The lia bilities are placed at $300,000 and the as sets are valued at $400,000. ' The cause of the suspension was the refusal of the New York correspondents of the bank to honor drafts falling due to-day. The liabilities are in great part to local depositors. Mr. Bacon says the assets if properly realized will be more than sufficient to pay every body in full. The bank was established in 1888 as a private banking institution and in 1892 it was converted into a National under the title of the American National Bank. In 1894 it was changed again to a private bank and under its first title, the Bank of Salt Lake. This is the only instance of a bank failure in Salt Lake during the past two years. MISHAP TO THE ROVER. The Taclit Tangled in the Kelp at Wittier* Reach. BANTA CRUZ, Cat,., June 23.— Word was brought here iate this afternoon that I the yacht Rover had gone ashore at Wilders Beach up the coast. It was sup ■ posed that the Rover had gone to Mon terey, as Captain Bruce had announced 1 last niprht before he left for San Francisco j by steamer, and when the word came that I the yacht had run acround at Wilders it ' was "feared she had struck a heavy gale : and been turned from her course. Tom ; ArniHtrong and Mr. Cook, who run the I naval reserve launch, put out at 6 o'clock :to go to her rescue. They returned at 10:30 o'clock and reported that the Rover i had got tangled in the kelp that lines the ; t>each and had a serious struggle, but had ': got off all right. SUSUOA CHURCH BERNED. Inadequate Water Supply Causes a Loss of $10,000. SONOMA, Cal., June 23.— St. Francis Catholic Church on Napa street was burned to the ground this afternoon. All the treasures of the church, including valuable vases, candlesticks, etc., gifts of the late Mrs. Robert Johnson, were lost. The con vent and rectory, though badly scorched, were saved. The loss is estimated at $10 --000, well insured. The fire has demon strated the inadequate water supply, and will probably bring about an improvement in the present system or cause the con struction of new water works. ♦ Taken from Jail and l.t/nrhetl. TRENTON, Term., June 23.— The negro ! who was recently brought here and lodged in jail for safe-keeping, having been charged ! with a criminal assanlt in Weakly County, ; was taken from the jail to-nipht and \ hanged. The people are very indignant, | because a Weakly County negro was | lynched on Gibson County soil. lUr». Fleming Hot Guilty. NEW YORK, N.

SENT TO GATHER DATA. Instructed lo Find Out All He Can Regarding the Herds of Seals. READY TO LEAVE SEATTLE. Englishmen, Canadians and Japanese Go as Guests of the Amer icans. SEATTLE, Wash., June 23.— President David Starr Jordan of Stanford University, who has been placed at the head of the new Seal Commission created by the last Congress, arrived in this city from San Francisco last night, and went to the Rainer-Grand, where he met the British and Canadian commissioners, who will ac company the commission north. Dr. Leonard Stejneger and Frederick A, Lucas of the National Museum, who are of the commission, have not yet arrived in the city, and Dr. Jordon stated to-night that, on account of their delay, the Albatross, on which the party will make the trip, will not leave until next Wednesday morn ing. Dr. Jordan to-night talked to a Call correspondent concerning the trip. The British and Canadian Commissioners re fused to be interviewed. No one of the American Commission knows what in formation the foreign Commissioners will seek or what they will do after they pet there. They are strangers to the Ameri cans and go on the Albatross as guests. They were appointed by their home gov ernments, but their instructions are not known. They stated that it would be difficult for them to reach the desired northern points, and Dr. Jordan and his commission was asked to take them alone; as his guests. The British Commissioners are D'Arcy W. Thompson of the Uni versity of Dundee, Scotland, Chairman of the British Commission, and a Mr. Hamilton of England, who went north by way of Japan, and who will join the Albatross party in Bering Sea. James Macoun is the Canadian Commissioner, Two Japanese Commissioners will join the party when the Albatross reaches Japan seas. "The United States Government," said Dr. Jordan^- is evening, "has created this commission and sends it to the north, in order that it may ascertain everything concerning the habits, life and history of the seals, as well as to learn a3 near as possible the number of seals not only on the American islands, but on all other islands and in all other waters where seals can be found. That is what we go north for, and we will endeavor to the best of our ability to get at the facts. I have been given instructions and have in my pocket thirteen questions, which the Government wants answered. I have given, in sub stance, the object of the trip, without giving out any of the questions or any of the instructions. "There is every reason why the com mission should be successful in its work. We have the Albatross at our command, good men to man her, and our accommo dations will be all that we can desire. "A wora about the commission: No two men are more competent to deal with the scientific aspects of the question than are Dr. Stejneger and Professor Lucas. The former, while in Norway, was recog nized as the most learned student of the anatomy of birds in the world. Because ot that he was asked by Prof ssor Baird to accept a position in the National Mu seum, where he has been for twelve years as curator of reptiles. He has contributed many articles on birds and was in charge of one expedition to the seal islands. I have proof-sheets of his report in my pocket, which the Government of the United States looks upon as a model of its kind. He also had charge of the expe dition to Commander Islands, which looked into all possible relics of the sea cow, which was once found in the north, but which has been extinct for a half century. "Professor Lucas is vrelt known as a stu dent of anatomy, has written extensively on birds and is the author of most of the articles on higher animals in Johnson's Encyclopedia. Joseph Murray is another member of the commission. By reason of his position as Special Treasury Agent on the seal islands he has become familiar with the economic aspects of fisheries in all its details. "Charles H. Murray, the naturalist of the Albatross, has been a member of the United States Fish Commission for twelve years and has been on the Albatross since it was turned over by the Naval Depart ment to the commission. Captain J. F. Moser, commander of the Albatross, is a member of the commission and is re garded as one of the wisest and most ca pable members of the naval staff, and, as it happens, is an old friend of Lieutenant Austin F. Knight, Mrs. Jordan's eldest brother. George F. Clark of Stanford will be secretary of the commission. "We go north by way of Sitka to Una laska, and for the benefit of California people let me say that Unalaska is the only place where we will receive mail during the summer. From Unalaska we go to Prybilof Islands, the most important of the American seal islands because of the discussion as to how far the jurisdic tion of the United States extends about them. Next the Commander Islands of Russia will receive our attention, and we will after that visit all the rookeries in Roten Island and on the Kurile Islands, which belong to Japan. "Of course, the itinerary of the latter part of the summer will depend on the weather and the necessity of going in search of coal. All the details of the trip have been left to me. We will return about October 1, and some or all of tne commis sion may return by way of the Japan steamers." BURGLARS SENTENCED. Garcia and Page Each Given a tear at San Quentin. SAN JOSE, Cal., June 23.— Apolonio Garcia, alias Sanchez, who committed some half-dozen burglaries in this city during the Rose Carnival, was this morn ing sentenced to one year in San Quentin by Judge Lorigan. After his arrest Garcia admitted robbing the residence of Mrs. J. R. Bartruff , on South Seventh street, and pleaded guilty to a charge of burglary in the second degree. Fred Page, who was caught in the act of robbing A. E. Hafely's room in the Russ House, on May 31, and subsequently pleaded guilty to burglary in the first de gree, was also sentenced co one year in San Quentin. Page hails from San Fran cisco and is but 19 years old. SAN JOSE'S WILL CONTEST The Celebrated Parker Case Is Gradually Drawing to a Close. Lady Witnesses Testify as to the Character and Conduct of the Contestant. SAN JOSE, Cal., June 23. -The Parker will case is gradually drawing to a close. The respondents rested their case at noon and contestants began offering testimony in rebuttal this afternoon. Mrs. Delia Binnott of San Francisco told a story of the courtship of George H. Parker and Mrs. Husbands. She said that Parker had offered to settle $5000 and then $10,000 on Mrs. Husbands if she would marry him, but she refused to do so. At the opening of court this morning ' the respondents offered a certified copy of the minutes in the suit of Charles Parker against George H. Parker for slander in I 1386. It was asserted by the contestant, i Emma Parker, that this was a suit for ; $10,000 for alienating a wife's affections. i It appeared that the action in question was for slander. The case was decided in iavor of the defendant, George H. Parker. Mrs. Delia Sinnott of this city was then put on the stand. She testified that she was acquainted with Mrs. Husbands, the lady who claimed that Georee 11. Parker i at the time of his death was engaged to ] marry her. She said Pnrker wanted Mrs. 1 Husbands !o marry nini, and hat offered ; to settle $.^OOO on Mrs Husbands if she ! would marry him. He finally offered to give Mrs. Husbands $10,000. She said Mrs. Husbands subsequently told her that ! she (Mrs. Husbands) was very foolish to , let the opportunity to marry George H. j Parker slip by. She had twice met Mrs. I Emma Parker. The first time was in | July, 1894, at her mother's house in this rity. This was shortly after the death of , George Parker. Mrs. Emma Parker said : that she was in California to break the : will. She wanted Miss Sinnott to help j her in the case, and she would give Miss Sinnott a diamond ring and goiden crest j worn by Geortte Parker. She had seen the : diamond ring in question on George Parker's hand. She had never been en i gaged to marry George H. Parker. Mrs. Emma A. Smith of San Francisco ! was the next witness. She first met George ! H. Parker In IVW.1 V W. Her ln:sband ami ! Parker had been intimate friend?. She never questioned ParKer's sanity, and : knew him to be a generous and liberal pro ; vider for his wife. She knew this, because she had often done the shopping for Mrs. i Parker, her husband always providing lib erally. The witness testified that Parker had | often spoken of the bad woman his >on ' had married, and said he did not want her to have a cent of his money. He knew NEW TO-MAT.

He had told the witness that for his indiscretion in marrying the contestant he had cut off his son without a dollar. The last witness for the respondents was Mrs. G. L. Smitft of San Francisco. She had known George H. Parker for a number of years, and denied that Parker had showed any signs of mental weakness. The contestants began offering testi mony in rebuttal, by reading the deposi tion of Caroline Page of New Haven, Conn. The deponent is a cousin of Emma Parker, and claims to have known her from childhood. She said she had never heard that Emma Parker was in a fast house in Meriden, Conn., or anywhere else. On cross-examination Mrs. Page ad mitted it wm possible Emma Parker might have lived an immoral life without her hearing of it. Mrs. Emma L. Parker, the contestant, was put on the stand in rebuttal this afternoon, and made a general denial of the evidence introduced by the respond ents during the trial. This closed the case for the contestant, and the respondents announced their testimony all in. The issues upon which the case will be submitted will be argued at 9 o'clock to morrow morning. It is intimated that the contestant will abandon the attempt to break the will, except as to the subsidiary legacy to Jane Poraeroy. It is thought a verdict will be reached before the end of the week. HIGH SCHOOL COMMENCEMENT. Numerous friends of Graduates Witneaa the Awarding of Diplomas.
