New Astoria...
located at tbe terminus of the Astoria and
Columbia River Railroad, at the mouth of the
Columbia River.
It fronts on the deep water of the Columbia
River Harbor, and beinj perfectly protected from
wind and seas, affords the very best docks for
ships on this bay: therefore, it is the exact spot
for the seaport of the fmt Northwest.
. These facts were recognized by the Astoria
& Columbia River Railroad Co. when
New Astoria Was Selected as
the Starting Point for their Railroad
and the Location for the Terminals.
New Astoria is platted upon a plane high
enough for perfect drainage, and well protected
by a high ridge behind it.
Its streets and avenues are wide, and, in
fact, it is laid out on modern plans.
Extensive street improvements are now un
der way.

The Uunch Uncle Sam and a Urge
fishing boat, both loaded to their ut
most capacity, delivered fish at the
Cutting cannery yesterday. It was
reported that a party of seventy-five or
one hundred fishermen endeavored to
run out on the dock as the boat ap
proached, but were withheld by the de
tail of mllllla on guard.
It was stated yesterday that early
In the morning a couple of fishermen,
who were delivering fish at one of the
canneries, were Inttnilduted and
threatened by a crowd of strikers. La
ter In the day the matter was said to
have grown out of trouble experienced
by one of Kinney's men when return
ing from fishing. The mimes of the
dggressurs wer taken by the watch
man, and complaint was made, but as
no damage was done, the authorities
took no action In the matter.
A gentleman who came down from
Portland yesterday reported that the
up-rlvrr canneries were literally bnxk
ed Kith salmon, and that a large sur
plus Is being shipped to Astoria every
day. It was reported that Kinney re

which Sheriff Hare pursued, over
taking It near Tansy Point, when tin
property was recovered, and the occu
pants of the boat placed under arrest
and taken to the county Jail. The men
claimed that there must be some mis
und-rstan ling, as they were requested
to remove their property and had ac
cordingly done so with the Intention
of fishing. As there did not appear to
be sufficient evidence to hold the men
they were released, the net being re
tained in possession of the cannery.
The parlor meeting given by the la
dles of the W C. T. U. at the residence
of Mrs. Holmes In L'ppertown yester
day, proved to be a grand success.
About twenty-five ladles were present.
The meeting was opened with devo
tional exercises conducted by the evan
gelistic superintendent, Mrs. Bollinger.
A question box proved to be a source
of much amusement, as well as enlight
enment on a number of points. Tlje
state president Mrs. Kinney, was pres
ent, and helped greatly to solve numer
ous questions of much weight. Music
and social chit-chat Interspersed the ex
ercises pleasantly. Refreshments were
served by the hostess, after which the
ladles took their departure, expressing
themselves as having spent a most de
lightful afternoon. The ladies of the
Union desire to return their most hear

within a few weeks' time. Those who
have ever travelled over the narrow
trail around the face of Necarnle
Mountain, can appreciate the advan

to allow a wagon to go over with per

Mr. Frank Stokes, who returned yes
terday from Puset Sound, told an As
tovlaii reporter that all he heard In
that country was mines, mines and
mines. Washington has gone wild over
the i event rich discoveries male near
I Spokane, and that city as well as He-
attle, Is booming like old Units. The
'whole matter Is a surprise, even to
I some of the old Washington settlers.
The. hotels In Spokane are crowded to
their full capacity, men are seen In the
stieets. drawing maps of their claims
in the dust. Mr. Stokes says that the
wonderful Increase In trade made by
the Seattle mervhants In Alaska Is sure
to make a large city out of Seattle In
the near future. He thinks that As
toria should have a slice of this busi
ness, and that If she had been In touch
with affairs, steamers would have been
put on between the Columbia river and
Alaska which would have brought rich
returns to the Investors. Mr. Stokes
ysterday wrote to the Chamber of
Commerce, l'ortland, to see what ar
rangements. If any, could be made for
the establishment of a line of steamers

Tin- plnno recital given last evening
by Miss Barron's pupils, proved to be
a treat to all who had the good fortune
to hear It. Each and every one of the
performers did most excellent work.
Little Miss Alice Wright won the most
hearty applause In her rendition of the
"Slunihtr Song." by tiurlltt. Master
Toil Carrulhers played Lanyon's "Joy
ous Moments" In a way that showed
he knew something about music. An
nie Hansen's rendition of selection
from "Martha." and Master David
Morgan's playing of "The Hunter's
Horn." won deserved applause. In the
second part of the program Miss Ger
trude Kearney gave a fine rendition of
Leybach's "Fifth Nocturne." and the
Misses Lulu and Pearl Estes won en
cores upon the beautiful Interpreta
tions of "La Camr'anella," by Egghard,
and H iler's "Cradle Hong." The gem
of the evening was perhaps Mendell
sohn's "Rondo Caprlctioso," by Miss
May Morgan. Miss Morgan la one of
the most promising young musicians of
the city, and plays with a feeling and
grace of execution seldom equalled by
one of her age. Others who took part
In the entertainment were Miss
