4 JvJyJWl'Jllr Vol. xix. Astoria, Oregon, Wednesday Morning, April 11, 1883 No. 9. SSff .$ wMln ASTORIA. The Second City of Oregon. Portland is not the only city in Oregon to show progress. Asto ria, though not so large nor so rich as the commercial metropolis, is still improving in appearance and increasing in size and import ance in an equal ratio. There are buildings in all stages of progress in all directions. New stores and ncNY residences are equally as numerous as in Portland in pro portion to the size of the city. The Odd Fellows' building asso ciation have nearly completed a fine three-story brick temple, 50 by 100 feet. It is the first brick building in the city, but it will be followed immediately by three or four more, for which contracts are already out. The only limit to building this season will be the capacity of the mills to furnish lumber. Yet all seem to be unconscious or even willing to acknowledge the prophec3T of their own present prosperity. It is rapidly accumu lating capital and power which portend a powerful rival to Port laud's commercial supremacy. "We are boxed up," they say, and can do nothing as against Port land in the trade of the coun try;" yet they are actually in the field and taking a share of it al ready. Their mills supply the lumber and their workshops supply much of the machinery for the canneries along the Columbia river and along the coast. One manufacturer exhibited a tele graphic order for machinery from a Sacramento river cannery. A few years ago the little bunch of buildings standing upon spiles at the edge of the bay looked almost ridiculous in pretending to th e name of city. Now, the hills which rose abruptly behiridth"e 'one' or two streets on bridges are fast coming down to fill the lower land. The city has extended up and down the waterfront till three miles or more of it is occupied with wharves, warehouses, mills and canning establishments. The latter are. the basis of the city's prosperity. The salmon canning business, which centers here, was started some ten years ago, and for several years the whole profit of the industry went to other places. Astoria received comparatively little benefit from the money paid cut for actual labor in the canneries, as much of it was performed by Chinamen, and the fishermen came here for the season, and when it was over took the proceeds of their labor to their homes in other places. Not withstanding this, Astoria rose from a village of a score or so of houses to a city of 2000 or 3000 people. Six years ago some of the fishermen who had homes in Astoria undertook the canning business on their own account, formed a stock company and, with their own capital, erected the necessary buildings. The. venture proved a success, and another was put in operation the following season. That was followed by more the next year, and those by others till there are now twelve canning establishments at or near the city controlled by Astoria capital. The town made great progress, while the bulk of the profit of its greatest industry went to enrich other cities. Now that its people are in position to take and keep fully one-half of this profit at home the city has doubled in population and is still increas ing in a proportionate ratio. Stock in these home canneries is owned chiefly by men who catch the fish, owning their nets and boats. No business can be more safe, and from present indications the bulk of the business must eventually fall into their hands. The canneries controlled by for eign capital must furnish boats and nets to such fishermen as they can get to work on shares. The nets are expensive and must be renew ed for every season at a large cash outlay. A scarcity of fishermen or of fish sad high prices will make tfeeir 'capital unproductive and cripple their business. The local companies, made up as they are of men who can prepare their own nets during the close season, and who have the same real profit in the aggregate, whether the fish are high or low in price for a season, and the further advantage of car ing for and protecting their own property, have an advantage which mere capital can in no way affect. There is, however, another field for enterprise and capital which is much greater than the salmorTruij of the Columbia, to which those now interested in the latter may turn with great advantage, name ly, the sea fisheries of the coast. Cod, hallibut and macherel may be taken and cured for market in vast quantities, and the most natural outcome of the gradual falling off in the quantity of salmon and in crease in the number of fishing establishments will be the exten sion of the business to the deep sea. Nor could anything more desirable happen. It would prob ably prove immediately profitable, and at the same time would give the Columbia river towns a mari time power and imbue them with a spirit of enterprise which would lead to achievements vastly be yond our conception. There has been a wonderful stretching out in length and width of nets since my last trip among the canneries three or four years ago. Then the nets were about 1,000 feet in length and 15 in width. Eighteen hundred feet is now about the average, and I have seen ropes lor new nets tnis vear at least 2,500 feet long. A fisher man whose information is reliable estimated that over GOO- miles of net of an average of 25 feet in width has been prepared for fish ing at the mouth of the Columbia this season enough to make two ,-r- -i , .-r-frMritr""- "T " "" " '' ' ' unared. lences across the river. How a single salmon can escape to reach her spawning bed above is a wonder. Aside from the fishing business, Astoria is becoming the commer cial town for a large area of rapid ly developing country around the coast, bays and along the river. Several small steamboats and nu merous sailing crafts bring produce from the smaller towns and the farms, carrying away supplies and machinery. The llwaco Steam Navigation company have two steamers which make regular trips along the coast as far north as Gray's harbor and occasional trips as far south as Coos bay. The country adjacent to the river and around the bays is putting out large quantities of logs and lum ber. To supply the various log ging camps is a large trade to As toria. The usual seaside travel during the summer months is no small item in its resources. That it is on the eve of far greater pro gress than heretofore is very ap parent. Oregonian Correspon dence. Imparting Information. What is a tinker's dam? "Why should a tinker want a dam, and of what use is a dam to a tinker, in or out of his profession? Graphic. A tinker's dam is a dam of dough or other suitable material, constructed by a tinker to confine his molten solder to the business at hand; and that, inasmuch as when a tinker's dam has once served its purpose it possesses lit tle .or no commercial valu, the phrase has come to be frequently used and almost universally un derstood synonym for worthless ness. Svn. Mr. John Mall is cashier of the famous Schnaider's Brewery and Garden, St. Louis, MoM and he states that for some time he suf fered severely from rheumatism which defied a number of remedies, and was, apparently, becoming chronic. Through advice of a friend he tried St. Jacobs Oil, and after applying it to the affected place found immediate relief. In a short time the alarming symptoms had disappeared, and to-day he considers himself completely free from the painful complaint, with out likelihood of its recurrence. Yet he is never without a supply of this valuable panacea, and has It ready for use. Who Should Come to This Country?! i No one should think of emi- grating without sufficient means for self-support for at least a short t time after reaching this section. Labor is a scarce article here just; now, but not all those who emi grate care to do the rough sort of work required; nor are all who come mechanics, so that suitable employment immediately upon ar-' rival cuuriot always be relied up - rn inl ttinfA te rintliltinr mntn MIC. courairinr to the newcomer than to become a subject of public or! private charity. This caution ap- nlies nartieularlv to heads oi lam-i ilies, who would be cruelly derelict in their duty to expose those de pending upon them to the risk of destitution or hardship on arrival here. Generally speaking, persons ac customed to ordiuary mechanical labor, and who unite frugal habits with persevering industry will run no risk in coming here; but indivi duals unwilling to work, or accus tomed to live by their wits, are not wanted except by the police force of city and country Idlers will only go from bad to worse, and adventurers will not prosper. This is the poorest country in the world for wit-living representa tives. It requires health, labor, courage and persistence to succeed here as elsewhere, and emigrants must expect this. Capitalists ean- not make a mistake by investing their money here, either in real es tate or manufactures. The entire Pacific Northwest is now infused with a new life, and possessed of an activity in excess of anything of the like heretofore seen. Its population is being rapidly aug mented, and its resources are be ing developed in a more than a corresponding manner. For all J.hatJJs(-produceda-thereis-ade- mand, and probably more is pro duced here per capita than by an other equal population in the Uni ted States. The most prudent aud practical men in our midst have never entertained the shadow of a doubt in regard to the capacity of the resources of this countrv to support a population of 3,000,000 people, or of that number of people locating here finally. These re sources offer an unbounded field for enterprise, and the attention they deserve is being attracted steadily. A man with a capital of muscle aud courage need not wait for something to turn up. He can go to work and create opportu nities. West Shore. Absolutely Pure- This powder never varies.
