fcftc gnUy gstoriutt. ASTOBIA. OREGON: SUNDAY .FEBRUARY 21. 1S89. All, THERE! SuuEDrroniALLT, yesterday's Oreqo nian says that Astoria is twenty-five miles from the ocean. Now that the legislature Las ad journed it is difficult to see why the Oregonian should continue making those statements. As usual, in its assertions regarding Astoria, that geographical statement is at right angles to the truth. Paee 73, of an official work pub lished by the government at "Wash ington, D. C, states the longitude of Astoria to be 123" 50': and that of Cape Hancock to be 124 03'. That is, 13 minutes farther west As sixty minutes make one degree, the 13 min. is thirteen-sixtieths of a degree. This would be thirteen nau tical miles. But the Oregoniun may cavil and say it meant statute miles. All right. A nautical mile is 1.15 statute miles, so the thirteen nautical miles would be 1-L93 statute miles. That is the distance of Astoria from the ocean. Had the Oregonian given tho fig ures "25," in its assertion, it would paw around and grow funny in Tues day's issue, and say that it was the fault of the compositor; that "15" was written, and tho compositor made a mistake and set it up "25." But the number of miles is written out "twenty-five," and so again tho Oregonian is convicted of willful perversion of facts and the utterance of a deliber ate untruth. Why? Probably it can't help it when writing about Astoria. True to its instincts the legislature in its closing hours, defeated ono of the most necessary and meritorious bills of the session, speaker Smith's bill providing for the construction of a portage railway around the Cascades, and between The Dalles and Celilo. This bill was the embodiment of tho work of the Columbia waterway con vention for the last two years, but though a confessedly necessary meas ure it was defeated. It would free tho river from the grasp of the monopoly that now controls it, and that would never do. In this case of tho people vs. tho corporations, tho legislature stood in for tho latter. President Cleveland last Friday signed tho bill for tho admission of the four territories of "Washington, Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota and on the Fourth of next July the flag will have 42 stars on it. Not since Colorado tho centennial state, was admitted in 187C, has a territory been admitted into the American Un ion, and for tho first time in the his tory of the government four great di visions of our country come in simul taneously as sovereign states. The new states will send eight senators and about an equal number of repre' sentatives to congress. . Another Railroad Scheme. A great many people speak loudly against railroads as monopolies, and in many instances it is only too true. Yet just at this time, in the language of Hon. Nat Langel of Jacksonville, concerning Ben Holladay's railroad, he said "give us a big slice of tho monopoly to Jackson county, rather than the stage monoply of fifteen cents per mile and passenger walks half the way and carries a rail to keep the stage out or the muduoles. We say give us a monoply from here to Coos bay and wo will promise not to "kick" much. Mr. Pengra and others with whom we have talked recently have a proposition of this sort. Start at Ocden. thence on the Central Pacific ronle to Winnemucca, thence in a moro westerly direction to (Joos bay via of Itoseburg or Dram, which ever is the most accessible, thence to Euceno City and by way of Salem. thence via Tillamook, and the final point being Astoria. The gentlemen wno have this project under consider ation are not impractical men, but men who Enow what they are doinsr. A part of this great coast system will be built at an early day we believe. From Coos bay, opposite Empire City or Marshueld, to the oiuslaw and thence to Eugene City will be built before you imagine. "We got a peep under the curtain. The iugeno peo ple are neither dead nor asleep. Now what is Boseburg going to do about a road to connect with the same: "We had better look to our interests somewhat it seems to us. From New Orleans to Portland the great system of the S. P. was only built by piece meal, uive us n railroid to Coos bay Roseb'urg lleview. ADVICETO 31 OTHERS.

The cir culars from tho Johnson-Locke Mer cantile company, of February 18, re port heavy transactions " in the salmon pack of the coast for 1889. The movement began in British Co lumbia with tho sale of 75,000 cases, followed by other sales, amounting in all to 190,000 cases, of which 95,000 cases are for the English account, and 95,000 cases for San Francisco buyers on the English and Australian account. Operations were then commenced on the future pack of the Columbia river, resulting in sales of 100,000 cases. Alaska salmon then received atten tion. The Johnson-Locke Mercantile company reports sales last week of 158,000 cases of Alaska salmon of the pack of 1889; other local brokers, 30,000 cases, and the Chicago oper ators, for eastern account, o.uuu. The sales for the pack of 1889 up to February 18, are reported at 553,000 cases, or about one-half of the antici pated catch. It is estimated that other negotiations have been closed. The preparations for the Alaska can neries are the most extensive yet known and it is hoped that there will be no disappointment in these enter prises, though grave fears aro freely expressed.
