Leom, the Spanish, minister, says Spain
will take part in the next international
monetary convention, as she is interested
in the solution of the bimetallic question,
Spain uses both gold and silver, the lat
ter being coined at k fixed ratio with
gold, and there is also an issue of paper
currency. Two' Pt the anantsh. colonies,
Porto RUco and the PhiHlplne Islands,
use silver almost exclusively. For these
reasons Spain's policy Is definitely fa
vorable towards the use of both metals
and her interests, particularly In the col

The belief is expressed by some of the
beet posted representatives for' foreign
countries that the International agree

features. To assure its power It must

States and of at least one of the three

Spokane, July 5. The report given out
last night that Paul Wtbb, who tried to
go down a chute into the lake In a barret
was dead, was incorrect. Although the
doctors say his back Is broken in two
places, he clings to life with wonderful
tenacity, and the physislans now say he
has a chance for life, Webb is quite
rational, and speaks of recovering as
though death were not to be considered.
To a reporter he said:
"From the time I struck the rocks as
they say I did, I was only semi-conscious
until midnight last night. Since then I
have been able to talk and understand
everything going on. I had a presenti
ment thalt this trip would be disastrous.
One thing Is sure, I must get over this
very quickly, for I have agreed to go
over Post Falls the 14th, and oven Spo
kane Falls the 21st. Then we go to Se

Iterestlng Notes from Clatsop County's
The past week at the beacjus adjacent
to Astorlai bus been one of sunshine, and
many people have taken up their summer
residence at the various resets. Gear
hart, Grimes' and McG Hire's at the Clat
sop beach are now open for the su Timer
visitor and quite a number of people
have patronized them since their opening,
The Seaside hotel ait the Halladay place
has not opened as yet, though it is under
stood thab it will be in readiness for
summer traffic In a few days:
The cottages at Seaside and Gearhart
will alt be occupied this season, and
many people from the Interior who fig
ured on renting a house at either of these
resorts have been disappointed. The sud
den demand for cottages has had a good
effect, however, for now many .new
houses are contemplated, and this fall
will see quite a building boom' Ut those
delightful resorts.
Campers will this year be more num
erous than last, which was considered
a big season. They will come from all
parts of Oregon, and In another week
or two little white tents can be seen
dotted throughout the groves from Gear.

Fire was discovered alt 1 o'clock this
morning In one of the boiler houses of
the Clatsop Mill Company, An alarm
of Are wais immediately turned in but be
fore the department arrived on the scene
the building was a mass of flames. For
awhile it looked as if the surrounding
buildings were in danger, but the good
work of No. 3's and the chemical soon
got the flames under control. The build
ing was used to get up heat for the dry
house and aside from the boilers had a
great deal of machinery In it. The Are
is thought to have originated on top of
the boilers. Mr. Kinney states the loss
to be in the neighborhood of $1000, which
is fully covered by insurance.
At 2 o'clock this morning Manager Kln
ney stated that the proprietors of the
Clatsop Mills would immediately rebuild
the boiler house. The dry house and box
factory wtlll be in operation by Monday,
and all orders will be filled promptly.

Astoria, Ore., July 6, 1805.
A considerable force of men and teams
went to Lyle the early part of the week,
says the Klickitat Republican, to com
mence the work of grading the projected
Lyle and Kllckltut railroad. A num
ber of men and teams were held back
because of the difficulty of procuring hay
for teams. This difficulty has since been
met, and we expect in due time to hear
that a good beginning has been made
on th grading.

The West Side Subsidy Almost
' Completed.
'!;'' '
Astoria the Head and Center of ihe
Columbia Valley Commerce
Seaside Sailroad Deal.
Mr. Hammond Is here and has come to
prosecute matters to a finish. He was
unable yeisterdby to say enough in praise
of the work done by Astoria In securing
the subsidy and right , of way for the
ra'Uioad. The unanimity ot action, and
persistent determination to accomplish
the object in view is worthy of the high-
"est commendation.
Ta complete and round out the entire
scheme It is necessary yet to secure the
subsidy as originally agreed upon and
promised upon the west side ot the bay.
There are three or four laggards, but it
is expected these will come to time at
once. The road to Astoria alone would
not in any sense fully develop the traffic
of the Columbia valley and the business
ot the city of Astoria. Astoria's limits
pnactUcaDy include Warreoton and Fla
vel, Within the present limits ot the
city there is not room enough for the
erection of all the warehouses and ele
vators which, will be needed to carry,
on the business of the future. The prop
erty on the west side ot the bay is almost
entirely owned by Astortans, and cannot
by any means be left out of the enter
prise or be considered a separate un
dertakhig. The acquisition and full de
velopment of the Seaside railroad the
bridging of Young's Bay, the opening
up and development of the Immense coal
fields and, timber resources on the west
side are absolutely necessary to place As
toria in, its rightful position and round
out and complete the scheme as originally
planned and outlined. It is quite certain
that itoday the deal will be consummated
for the purchase of the Seaside road,
but its development and connection with
AstorlW-wUi depend upon tha completion
of the subsldydeeds-to the- West Bide
property which have been promised,
There can be no reasonable doubt but
that the same spirit which has so cred
ttably been displayed in closing matters
on the east side will be shown In the
west side part of the deal, and that the
few who are still In arrears will come to
the front and make It possible for the
carrying out of the entire proposition and
the early starting of the work ot con
Astoria is not like Portland, for she
realizes the fact that her Interests In
clude both sides of the bay equally and
that Astorta, will always be Astoria and
the center of business on ithe lower Col
umbia; . the great port of the Pacific
Northwest and that nothing can take the
business away from her. Portland is, and
Will always be, the metropolis of the
state; her bankers and financiers will
always lead In the business of the state,
and her benefits from the building of the
railroad to Astoria will be commensurate
With her importance and population. But
it is a well known fact that some of her
leading citizens, and even the press," have
been opposed to the road because of lndi
vldual posslbl losses, losing sight of the
general gain to the city and state at large.
It is also well known that persistent and
influential pressure was brought to bear
rn that cfty upon Mr. Hammond to aban
don the Astoria raiti-obd project, but to
no avail. It is a noticeable and pleasing
fact, however, that this sentiment only
prevailed among the few, and that all
will no doubt see the folly of it in a
short time.
Now is the time for -the prevalence of
the Astorta , Idea the length and
broa'Jth , ot . the entire state Ore
gon for Oregonians; the building
up of every enterprise that will
place the state In the front ranks of
commerce and make her the successful
leader to whtch her geographical location
and cllmatltc conditions entitle her. To the
winds With sectional jealousies and fac
tional disputes! Unity of spirit and con
centration of effort will secure grand re
sults and All the state with that class
of immigrants who make desirable clti
ezns and a prosperous and happy society.

now a certainty that the lower river will

of a slight increase In the run of fish,
caused no doubt by the heavy somthwly
weather now prevailing and it is tits
general impression among carmerymeit
that a fair run may, be looked for curly

ties. It is not expected that there will
be any Ashing pa the Columbia after
the loth of August. The blueback run
will be over by the middle ot the present
month. Seiners continue to make better

strong efforts will be made to put up the
