Knighton, Harry Stephens and their associates, successors and assignees are hereby created a corporation and body poli tic, for the purpose of constructing, ercctimr, iuttimr in monition and maintaining a railroad from Astoria to Salem and thence to Eugene City or some other point in the Willamette Valley, by the name of the "As toria Sr Willamette Valley Railroad company. A quarter of a century has.elspscd since these men associated themselves together by this act. Many are num bered with tho dead, and all have grown old and silver-haired, and still there is no railroad In Astoria; but the time will come when ifcwill bo built, and many of these old "pioneers" will live to see this enterprise, started by them twenty-five 3'ears ago, carried forward and completed, and Astoria take the place she is entitled to by na ture in the commercial world. Some Pertinent Suggestions. Astokia, .1 tily 21 1 1883. En. Astouiak: Now would be a good time for tho council to have Water street widened ten feet on each side so as to make it eighty feet wide and provide for any further extension of that street, to be of the samo width. Sqticiiioque should be widened also, any ten feel. This should be done at once, before tho burnt district shall be rebuilt. The water front should also be well considered bv tin citizens and the citv fathers. Thore ia talk of the O. R. & N. Co., extending their wharf farther into the stream. It is so far now that vessels cannot anchor in front of it without obstructing tho channel. It makes no difference to what depth of water a wharf shall be carried, it will cause the channel to shoal alongside of The channel in front of the city is now too narrow and no encroach ments should be allowed upon it. The present waterfront line should be strictly preserved and no person al lowed to build beyond. Means should be taken to prevent the sediment from the shore going into the channel. A bulkhead along Chenamus street and Olney to Squemoque, thence east along that street and Water street to West-Sixth thence south to tho shore, would have a great effect in arresting the shoaling of the water front. The expense would be nothiug compara tively. Stout planks spiked onto the piles from tho ground up two or three feet would be sufficient for the present. PrcLicus. A largo party of Asiorians start ed to the Seaside on the Sam yester day. Such weather as this entices one to call for a vacation, and take a season of enjoyment. It must be jolly fun to be well-to-do, to have abundance of this world's goods and not be obligod to work when one does not feel like it. Under date of tho 20th our wide awake Jewell correspondent writes that the surveying party in charge of EL G. Hurlburt, moved camp on the 18lh and are now camped at Mr. CahilFs place in Vesper precinct, about forty-two miles from Astoria. They went up the Nchalem in canoes; it took hve canoes to carry tho party and their outfit. They are makin about a half a mile a day along tho river. It. C. Templeman's expert part' are on tho line between Jewell and OIncy. Don't fail to call at the residence of Mrs. Clomrh. Chenamus street, and set an Electric Belt of Dr. Mitchell. They cure all chronic complaints without the aid of medicine. Office hours, 1 to 5 p.m. The Pacific Electric Pad Truss cures ruuture in 90 days. Call and see it. Dr.Mitchell,Astor Jlouse.9 to 12 a.m Tho Twenty-First Regiment. A portion of tho 21st Infantry came to this coast 18 years ago, and all of it has been hero 4 years. Since the last of tho 21st came to California in May, 1809, regiment after regiment has been here and gone. Tho 12th Infantry came west with the 21st, but tho gallant 12th has been nearly a year disporting itself on tho pleasant shores of Lake Ontario; the 4th Artillery came out three years after J .1... Olct- it 1i n.n nonrlv two 1 years basking in the sunshine and gas-light f eastern civilization. So, you see, regiment cornea and resiment J goes, but the 21st remains. It has been here so long that the time when it came seems like the vanishing point in the perspective of a picture. Since it first saw the "golden shores of; the Pacific" the war department has been ruled over by seven secretaries: and four division, four department, and three regimental commanders have come, commanded and de parted. Tho 21st has out-lived oven the Indian tribes. When the regiment sailed up the Co lumbia the Modoc was tending his herds at the base of Shasta, and the Nez Perce was living quietly in tho peaceful valley of Iranaha. Where are Modoc and Nez Perce now? They have faded from the land liko the snow from the brow of llood. The Indian has gone, but the 21st re mains. It is rooteil to the foil of Oregon and Washington like one of their fir trees. It has longed and waited for the railroad. Tho railroad is here, but even its mighty engines have not power, it seems, to fear us from our ancient habitation. But tho 21st will not complain. If there is no money to move us, thero will be no money to move any other regiment, and wc should hare no right to be dissatisfied. Bat relying on tho eter nal justness and fitness of things, I My the 21st, like the Chinese, "must go." Cnt. ant. Sol Smith Russell. Of Sol Smith Russell, who ap pears at Occidental Hall in "Edge wood Folks" to-morrow night, tho Chicago Tim si says: "Russell puts so much of that gennino, hearty good humor into it, so much of that healthy, pure, but captivating fun of which he is the natural apostle, that all tho sentiment and humor thero is in the play finds its way straight to folks' hearts and stays there. It is of but few leaders on the contemporary stage of whom it Cm he said that they would rather try tho'clear and health ful thing for a comparatively modest success than win a larger reward by lending then" aid to tho perpetuation of the false .ind the equivocal upon tho boards, iut certainly Sol Smith Russell has earned the title to this honorable distinction, and a generous good fortune has followed the choice, too. And taat the fickle dame has smiled on hjjn in this generous way will not be regretted by his host of friends and well-wishers in Chi- A Public Meeting. Astoria, July 21, 18S3. Eo. Antokian: It seems to me that n public meet ing should bo called at an early day to consider the proposition made by the Astoria and Wiunemucca Railroad company, to build a railroad to As toria on a subsidy of two hundred thousand dollars. If that amount is not raised we will see what amount can be raised on condition that the road be begun immediately from the Astoria end, and that no transfer be made to the land-grant company. This should be done at once. Let us try to get such a sum raised as will be acceptable and push the forfeiture of the land grant that now stands in the way of a rai lroad.
