At ten o'clock last Thursday night

months sho has made the run daily,

leaving Astoria at 1 P. H., touching at
way landings, and reaching Portland
at 8:30 ?. sr. The Wide West, while
making these quick trips, has been of
great convenience to all persons travel
ing on business or pleasure. Busi-
ne33 men could leave Portland in the
morning, stay an hour and a half at
Astoria, and return to Portland the
same day. Visitors to the sea coast
could mako the trip between Port
land and the different sea side resorts
in from ten to twelve houra. The travel
to the coast this summer has been at
least three times greater than ever
before, principally on account of the
improvement in the facilities of reach
