THE NEW LEWIS AND CLARK ROAD formal 0icnlng Will Take Hate To morrow Kith a Grand ' Excursion. 6v YEA KS LABOR REWARDED An Important Event In the History of Clatsop County The Ferry Need ed to Get the Full Benjflt of the Improved Itoada. The Lewi and Clarke road haa been completed. It now extend from the nest shore of Young's river, opposite the city, throurh the Lewi and Clark country nr. 1 to Clatsop Plain. Tomor row there will be a celebration of the event. T.'ie Le.vl and Clarke people have courteously Invited a large cum ber of the citizen of Astoria to view the new work. The steamer Mayflower will leave Hume' dock at t o'clock In the morning, and will land the excur sionists at the end of the road on Young bay near the Hess place. Here teams will convey the party over the line of the road, landing them at Clat sop City In time to take the evening train from Seaside to Astoria. Lunch will be served en route, and It Is ex pected that a jolly good time will be had. In the party will be the mayor aand member of the city council, the county court, and In all probability Judge McRiide will adjourn the ses sion of the grand Jury In order that they may also make the trip. Other tax layers Interested In the property will Join the excursion. For five years the ranchers of the Lewis and Clarke have had a hard struggle to secure good road and quick communication wiih the city. Within the past few months their efforts have bevn redoubled, and the most telling work haa been done. They have real ized that In this age of competition, quick and easy access to market means no small profit to their buslnes. Heavy tranaportatkiQ expenses, caused by bad roads, mean an absolute loss on many product to the grower. Astoria has Ion; been paying high prices on but ter, egg, fruit and vegetables, all of which are raised In Clatsop county, but which, because of bad roads, have een Imported from California or other parts of Oregon, cheaper than the Clatsop county man could get his stuff to market. Great Improvements have been made In the Walluskl road, and some time In the future that route may be expected to become flrst-class. All that Is now needed to make the new Lewis and Clarke road of the utmost service la the completion of the ferry across Young' river to the city. The road Is in good condition, and with a small amount of oik eacn year can not only be kept In good condition, but will be gradually Improved. The opening of the Lewis and Clarke road Is an important event In the his tory of Clatsop county, and will be ap preciated by citizens and farmers alike. Mr. W. J. Ingalls. who has been one of the prime movers and Indefatigable workers on the project, says that As torians cannot begin to realize the im iHirtance of this road, and the Immense relief iuid saving that it will be to the Lewis and Clarke and Clatsop Plains people. Loth city and country will jfain positive linanclal benefits. LATEST CHINA NEWS. LI Hung Chans To He Ilestot-ed to Full Toner. Vancouver, B. C, Sept. 23. The steamer Empress of India arrived to day from the Orient. It la rumored that LI Huns Chang on his return to China will be reinstated In all his for mer positions, including the vice-royalty of China, and that the vice-royalty of Chin Wang, the present holder of the post, ls rapidly losing credit in Pe king. At a meeting of the grand coun cil at Peking to discuss a memorial to his excellency LI Hung Chang sent from Europe, the emperor is credited with the remark that his excellency was the best man after all, for the Important post of viceroy of China and the imperial high commissioner of Pe yantr administration, and that Wang, the present Incumbent, was more fit to be a court minister than provincial viceroy," or words to that effect. Per haps this may have been "a feeler" at the Instigation of the empress dowager, his excellency Li's staunchest support er, put out by the emperor to test the temper of his advisers. BRYAN IN BROOKLYN. New York, Sept. 2". There has per haps never been such a significant demonstration for W. J. Bryan In the East as that given tonight ln Brook lyn by the combined labor Interests. It has been a mooted question whether the labor people of the East would re spond to a call for a mass meeting in favor of Bryan but there was no mis take about the demonstration at Cler mont Kink. The building would con tain S.OOO, and every available corner was filled with a good natured crowd of humanity, while thousands besieged the doors and were refused admission. It was a typical labor gathering and even the women and children were fill- ed with enthusiasm. It waa also a meeting far out of the ordinary In It method of proceedure. Hhortly before S o'clock the presiding officer said; "Will the audience please take from tb.'lr teats a song that Is there and J'iiii in alnging It." And they responded o heartily that the refrain, "You Shall Not Pre a Crown of Thorns I'pon the Toller' Urow," rang against the unpalnted raf ter and re-echoed again and again and when It wa finished a mighty cheer went up. and so It was throughout the meeting and while they were waiting the arrival of Bryan, who w-as speaking at another place, they listened to sev eral other speaker.
