THE SIBERIAX RAILWAY.
Is a few years Siberia "trill be added
to the great granaries of the world.
We are accustomed to think of that
part of Russia's Asiatic possessions as
& country covered with eternal ice and
saow and swept by deadly blasts from
the Arctic ocean. Nothing could be
xaore erroneous. In character, soil,
climate and resources Siberia is
Tery much like our own im
perial northwest. The winter is severe
oa the open plains, but the summer is
warm and genial. That Siberia is not
the dreary desert it is popularly sup
posed to be is shown by the fact that
the projected trans-Siberian railway
"will ran north of the 55th parallel, or
at an average latitude of 700 miles
farther north than Minneapolis, and
about 250 miles beyond the northern
most point touched by the Canadian
The Great Siberian road will be the
largest single line of railway in the
world, or at least the largest line as
yet built or projected. The distance
from the Ural mountains to Yaldi
TOstok, its eastern terminus, is 4,500
Biles, or 1,500 miles more than the
distance between Quebec and Vancou
ver. At the present time the commer
cial importance of this new line of
traffic and travel can only be a mat
ter of conjecture, but that it will be
great and in many respects epoch
making does not admit of the slight
Northern Asia is a remote country,
yet the construction of the trans
Siberian railway is a matter in which
tie northwest is decidedly concerned.
It will open up a vast area peculiarly
adapted to wheat-raising, a country
where a virgin soil and cheap labor
will combine to stimulate an immense
production. Yc are not here dealing
with remote future possibilities. The
Siberian railway will be open for
traffic within four years from
bow, and agricultural immigra
tion will then be attracted by
liberal offers of free laud. Already
Siberian wheat has been exhibited in
European markets in limited quanti
ties. When an outlet for the product
has been provided, the industry will
expand and the surplus available for
export will increase from year to year.
The Siberian railway will connect with
the railroad systems of Russia proper,
Finland, Sweden and Norway. It is
probable that one of the many
excellent harbors in the northern part
of the latter country will be
the western terminus of a
groat trans-European and trans-Asiatic
railway system and the chief empor
ium for the Siberian wheat destined
for the market? of western Europe.
Siberia will become one of the chief
grain exporters of h world, auJ onr
farmers will feel the depressing effect
! Siberian comietition it they con
tinue to depend upon foreign markets
for the sale of their surplus. Ry the
taae the agricultural resources of
Borthem Asia shall have been devel
oped the United States will have gone
oat of the wheat-exporting business.
Frrrr years ago a young country
man from Vermont went to Boston to
try his fortunes. He hit upon the
idea of establishing a parcel earning
business between Boston and New
York, he being responsible for the
safety of the parcels. His patronage
was not large. At first he carried all
the parcels he had between the two
cities in his carpet bag, and there was
aot more than money enough to pay
kk traveling expenses, hardly that
sometimes. The young countrymau's
same was Alvin Adams, and yesterday
the Adams Express company cele
brated its fiftieth anniversary. It has
a capital of 12,000,000, carries par
cels to every state and territory in the
Union, and keeps 2,000 wagons, 3,000
horses and 20,000 men busy the year
The Astoriax yesterday was the
oaly paper in Oregon or Washington
that had the news of the acquisition
by England of the Congo Free States.
Even the Oregonian was scooped.
Tsr Astokiax had a column account
of it This is the biggest piece of
aews sent across the sea in years, and
the first publication of it in Astoria's
Iwrfing paper, shows what a live news
paper can do. It is a great triumph
for Salisbury, the British prime
minister, and a feather in his cap to
be able to do what he has, and is to
bis official tenure of office what the
treaty of San Stefano was to the

bread. It is used in connection with a
patent bread-cutter, and is intended

other reformatory institutions.

Theke should be a full vote to-day.
It is the duty, as well as the privilege
of every legally qualified voter to
assert his opinion at the polls.
The political complexion of the new
immigration to this country is consid
ered an unknown factor in the result
of to-day's contest
Pexnoyer's majority in this county
in 'S8 was 359. To-day's vote will tell
a different story.
It is estimated that 150,000 new
comers will arrive in Oregon this year.
Between Albany and Astoria several
towns are speculating over their pros
pects on account of the Albany and
Astoria road. The Sheridan Courier
"Now that the surveyors of the
Albany and Astoria railroad have set
to work surveying the lino of that road
from Astoria to Tillamook, and as the
line has already been surveyed from
Albany by Sheridan, our prospects of
securing a road to the sea again
brightens up. The graders, it is said,
will begin work at Astoria when the
survey is completed to Tillamook, and
as there is already 2,000,000 in guar
anteed subscriptions behind the
scheme, the road will likely be built
in a short time." And the Monmouth
paper comes to hand with the remark:
"Now let us see where Monmouth
stands regarding this lino. A survey
has been made from Albany and it
passes within a short distance just
far enough to be comfortable of the
central portion of our fair city. It
doesn't make any difference if the lino
is built from Astoria first Albany will
also run her end of the line and the
connection will probably be made at
Sheridan. The road is sure to be
built and Monmouth is sure to become
as good an inland town as there is in
Millions in It.
"There is millions in a gold sand
bank near Peterson's point at the
mouth of Gray's harbor," Samuel
Benn, of Aberdeen, declared last even
ing at The Tacoma. "It's an old story
though," he continued, "and quite a
fortune has been sunk by various
parties in attempting to develop or
work it You see the precious metal
contained in the sand is what is called
flour gold. So far no machine has been
invented which will separate the very
fine particles of gold from the sand.
Some thirty years ago attempts were
made to work the sand, but all efforts
resulted in failure. The gold is found
in black sand, and tons upon tons of it
is in sight Nobody is now paying
much attention to it, but I reckon a
machine will some day be invented
which will separate the gold from the
sand, t have been inspecting a ma
chine which Judge Ruasel invented.
He says it will do the work and I am
inclined to think it will"
Mr. Benn located on Grays Harbor
two score years ago. Speaking of the
probability of a railroad being built
to the harbor by Mr. Hunt he said he
was ready to inew his subsidy,
amounting to several thousand dol
lars, it Hunt or anybody else would
agree to construct a" road direct from
the Northern Pacific to Aberdeen.
