THE DAILY ASTORIAN. ASTORIA, FRIDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 29, 1893.
Mills Burned Out! About 3 o'clook this morning a Are- broke out In the Clatsop mill in Upper-town.- As a result the box factory is burned out, the dry kiln is burning, nnd a great effort is being made to prevent tho fire from extending into the old 1 X L cannery, where a lot of lumber la stored. A great deal of val uable lumber is destroyed, and it was only by hr-rd work of the firemen that the buildings adjacent and across the street were saved. The main structure of the mill Ih saved, though badly d..m ntfed. It Is Impossible to estlma J '.he loss at (Ms stage of the fire, though it will reach many thousands of dol lars. It Is not known how the fire origin ated, though it appears to have started In the sawdUBt in the box factory. It was first noticed by the fireman of the dry house, but was too far along to be checked. All the fire engines were out, doing effective work. A large crowd thronged the street, and there came W i being some fatal accidents by wires getting tangled with the street c;.r line trolley wire. AUOUT THE NEHALEM. School Work Improvement in Schools A Graded Course - Nahalem in Gen- eral Things that Grow There -Road ' Connection. (By H. S. Lyman.) (i......imed from yesterday.) Glancing, from matters educational, however, let it be observed that the Nehalem Is a grand country, and As toria is negligent in not annexing it to herself, or uniting it with herself. Crops over there are prodigious so far as landowners have any Incentive to raise crops. Grass, clover, hay, oats, wheat, barley, roots of all kinds, vegetables, even sweet corn and tomatoes, berries to an extravagant quantity, hops, or chard fruit, such as cherries, plums, prunes, and apples, are prolific, even this very late and extreme season. Ne bulem apples are the best in the world; big, fair, and of the highest and rlch- bt flavor of any grown anywhere. They ore solid and late keepers and free from uny insiict pest. Apple orchards flour ish best on the uplands, with south ex posure. A twenty acre apple orchard in the Nehalem would Just about keep one family in work and in money, and afford the chance for making the most desirable of homes. AstoVia bhouid not sleep, at least not more than eight hours a day, until she puts a family upon every forty acres of pro ductive land In the county. There cught to be wit enough in this town to iwpulata the surrounding country, and then by supplying herself the means of sustenonca without sending abroad for produce, and also make some market for our merchandise!. So far the policy of Astoria toward the surrounding country lias been that of indifference! or oen opposition, or contempt. The country has been re Kordod as of too trifling importance to merit notice, even less existence. Tho JuhI demands of the sellers, who have been left to rough it alone for easy communication with Astoria, have too often been treated as the importunity of mendicancy, or the suggestion to "divide" with thong more successful than themselves. Hut this policy of Imitation Is already recoiling upon As toria. The trade of the Nehalem val !'y, which even now Is not inconsid erable, Is mostly done with Portland through tin (,'latskanle route, by Mist In Columbia county. Astoria, ns a bus lneus center, Is almost ceasing to ex ist, even in her own county, and, one might say, within her own corporate limits. The unenlightened course of the punt, which Is now bringing us such liumill.UIng results, Is due both to nar rowness of mind and lack of informa tion. It Bhouid bo broken up somehow. Tho suggestion, which Bet-ma to be regarded earnestly by some, at least, thai Astoria consolidate her railroads and railroad subsidies and build the roud herself, would ba In this line. Sub sidies in land could be raised all along the route, from Astoria to lllllsboro. Willi such backing all that Is needed l.t energy and Intelligence and Unity f ..i-tlon things which the town ought to furnish. Even ihe sun-kissed skies, resting down upon forest-robed moun tains, and the salmon swarming Col umbia debouching upon the ocean, whoso farther shore laps the Orient, or extravagant descriptions of rain, will not Induce capitalists to spend money for us. A HUH hard sense and hard work of our own, and such union of action as recognises oil parts of the county, may accomplish what we need. Despite the difficulties of making a homo In a timber country, where pro viHtons have had to bo "packed" or floated In bateaux down the swift ktivam; and lumlxr must be gotten from a dlstanea of twenty to forty miles, or split out of the logs, there are uany handsome places in the Nehalem valley. One is surprised to come uixn ruth places as Mr. Johnson's at Ves per. There la scarcely a neater, more homelike or better kept place In the stule. Tho form la mainly cleared and in production. Mr. IJndoll'a farm, near by. Is another well-improved place. Mr. I.lndell haa soma fancy for bees, and baa this season about ton of honey, which cannot be excelled. Bees do well all over the villey, the vine nuv. ple, white clover, blackberry and rasp berry, and the fire-weeds, or plloblum, that growa on the burnt ridges, all hav ing the best or honey flower. Nearly Clatsop all thi termers in the. valley have bees, find take as much as fifty. andsome' times' a hundred, pounds of honey from a swarm in a season. At Jewell are many handsome places, each one having its own attraction, either in natural peculiarity or some fancy of the owner. Mr. Wooden, our county commissioner, among other things, has followed the plan of top ping the wild crab-apple and cherry trees with grafted fruit. Consequently, through the fields and along the streams on his farm, one sees appar ently old orchard trees, bending under the finest of fruit Mr. W. A. Foster has a group of four apple trees, among the first planted in the valley, now 25 years old, of enormous size and per fectly thrifty. Two of them are of on unknown variety, but go Jn the neigh borhood as "Foster's Best." It is a umarkably fine late fall apple, and 1ms been scattered extensively by budding and grafting. Indeed, Nehalem seems to be a good place for originating new kinds of fruits, Mr. Johnson having obtained a number of fine new varie ties of plums and apples by seedlings. and Mr. Blrchard, at Vine Maple, hav Ing some excellent feedllng cherries. Mr. J. W. Walker has cherries that ripen at his place on the bank of the river. ' There is one peculiarity of this coun try; wherever you happen to be in It it strikes you as about the "natural center," and the best place, whether on the wide meadows nt Vesper, or along the waters of the Fishhawk. or the extensive fiats at Vine Maple to Mishawaka, or in the truly enchanting vail?'- -f the Humbug. Hence it is, everybody Is contented and thinks his farm is in the best locality. Hence, also, so fast as they get ahead, the people are building new homes, some of which are very good, as Mr. Mil ler's Mr. Birchard's, Mr. Stephen Gragg's, and others. Wagon road improvements are great ly desired. Mr. J. W. Foster, who brings every week a ton or more of provisions, groceries, etc., down the Nehalem by boat from Mist, considers this trade Important, and that It might te turned to Astoria if good roads were built. Some improvements have been made this summer, in bridging. The preservation of the bridge at Olney, by sheer boom'B to protect the piers from drift, is a piece of work that seems to be generally approved. ' Something is due the Nehalem. peo ple, also, on the mere score of neigh- borllness. There are nowhere more kindly and cordial and warm-hearted men and women. They are working under many disadvantages to make a desirable community. By easy connec tion with the principal town in the county their difficulty might be lessen ed, their work better rewarded, aud their, help also secured in hastening for Astoria the position due her as a principal city in. the Northwest. LATEST FROM HONOLULU. Honolulu, Sept. 21.-Reports which arrived by tho last steamer to the ef fect that the United States would es tablish a protectorate over Hawaii and that nn election would be held, "have created great excitement there. The American cojony have announced that they would not bo coerced Into a farce of an election which would give the native element control over the for eigners. The public here are pleased llh the appointment of Minister Wells with the appointment of Minister Wil lis, but the annexationists criticize the pppolntinent of Ellis Mills as consul- general of the provisional government. He Is objected to on account of the preference for tha royalist cause he displayed while here as Mr. Blount's secretary. TIME OF CLOSING THE MAIL AT THE ASTORIA POSTOFFICE.
