Now, It seems certain, that all of these disquieting elements ere about tn be renioved and responsive to the encour agement In sight, already Astoria prop erty Is beginning to change hands, and Investors are preparing for active transactions. The times have been dark enough and none will more truly welcome the change In affairs than Astoria prop erty owners and business men. They have hod a long wait but now their hopes are In a fair way to be realised at no distant day. Many of the diverg ing Interests In the city hove been unit ed In the common cause. Personal feelings and animosities have been dropped that the good of the commu nity might be advanced. Bitter les sons have been learned In the past but It seems to be a certainty that with the coming revival and the beginning of prosperity there will be no return to old-fashioned methods. A strong pull all together certainly cannot fall to soon develop at this port at least the beginnings of a great commercial and shipping center. Pay rolls can and will be established, employment furnished for thousands, and with a system of free towage between Asto ria and the se the number of ships now loaded In the Columbia will be doubled In another season. The rail road, together with the elevator, ware house, drydock and flouting mill fa cilities to be established, to say nothing of the manufacturing lumber mills, will load the deep sea vessels here Instead of at other points on the river. This change for the better cannot come too soon. And that It has com menced Is one of the encouraging signs of the times. The Chamber of Com merce and Its auxiliary committees are doing good work all along the lines, the railroad la quietly but steadily progressing, and when the spring dawns, under a sound money and pro tective administration, who can doubt the great stride which wilt be taken In this community toward the ends so long held In view and which now seem to be within the grasp of Its people.

There the robbers commanded the messenger to open the door of the car, threatening to break In the door should he refuse. After some delay the rob bers were admitted to the express car. They compelled the messenger to open the safe and took from It several pack age. The express messenger, however, had sunnls.il what the trouble was.

Samuel Elmore Thinks There la No Doubt of Bryan's Defeat Portland, October 21. Samuel El more, of Astoria, a well known Colum bia river canneryman, arrived In Fort- land today on his return from an ex tended Eastern trip. Mr. Elmore ex pressed great confidence In the election of McKlnley at the coming election. "Of course, there Is not a shadow of doubt that McKlnley will carry all the Eastern states by heavy votes," said Mr. Elmore tonight. "That Is conced ed. Why, in New York, the streets and buildings are plastered with Mc Klnley flags, banners and streamers and Republican sentiment pervades all things. I was th New England and found the same thing there. I made careful Inquiry Into the situation while In Maryland and I feet pretty sure the state will go Republican. "Coming out West I found the Re publicans everywhere confident I was In St. Louis, where I saw Mr. Neldrlng haus, the famous manufacturer. He told me that the Republicans had a very excellent chance of carrying Mis souri. "Illinois Is absolutely safe for Mc Klnley by a big majority. Indiana can be counted on with absolute certainty. "The vote of Minnesota Is assured for McKlnley. It was by no means certain eight weeks since, but It Is not on the doubtful list now. Iowa la all right. I heard more Populist talk In Nebraska than anywhere In the Middle West Bryan may carry his own state." Mr. Elmore went to Astoria tonight. TO THE SHRINE AT CANTON. Believers In Good Government Flock to the Standard Bearer. Special to the Astorlan. Canton, October 23. Kansas came smilingly Ipto Canton today several hundred strong. The employes of the Santa Fe Railroad Co., and others, made one of the most enthusiastic del egations that has ever visited Canton. Some of the party were two days on the road. The singular party of the day was a party of poor supervisors of Pennsyl vania, who came from Pittsburg, where they were In convention. Armstrong county, Pa., was repre sented by several thousand people. From 10 o'clock this morning until, late this evening, the streets were again crowded with visitors. Major McKln ley was visited by Ave delegations to day. They were from four states. Pennsylvania sent two, Indiana one, Ohio one, and Kansas the other.

It Is wor thy of note that the Western roads are complaining of a car famine, the demand for movement to markets be ing so great. The most striking feature of the In dustrial returns is the number of con tracts conditioned upon the election. There already are enough to make bus iness rather lively for a time, and many others are pending which will probably be held back until Nov. 1. The failures for the week have been 204 in the United States, against 231 last year, and 36 In Canada against 38 last year. GOLD WITHDRAWALS. New York, October 23. The specula tive equilibrium In Wall street was dls disturbed In the afternoon today by the announcement that Laldlaw & Co., on influential banking house, acting as agents for the Bank of California, had withdrawn from the sub-treasury 31, 5u0,0X In gold tn exchange for green backs. This, being the first substan tial withdrawal since the termination of the gold export movement created a decidedly unfavorable Impression on the present traders, and stocks reacted all along the line. In the absence of definite news on the subject It was suggested that the withdrawal was for the purpose of strengthening the gold reserve of the Bank of California; also that the gold was for the account of a large California capitalist WOOL GOES UP. Boston, October 23. The Commercial Bulletin will say tomorrow of the wool market: Dealers are refusing orders for wool at current quotations. Wool generally has advanced from 3 to 6 cents since the Maine and Vermont elections. Whether it rises farther depends tdno small extent on trie Australian market Fortunately, wool there la quite firm. Lofts In Boston are crammed with wool withdrawn from the market In antici pation of a further rise. The present advance Is pretty sure to be felt In the event of McKlnley's election, but It Is noticeable that some of the keenest operators In the trade are free sellers on the rise. THE MARKETS.

CARLISLE DENIES That LI Hung Chang Said China, Would Change Her Money System. Cincinnati, October 23. A statement from Washington to the effect that Li Hung Chang whl'e here had told Sec retary Carlisle that China was to be placed on a gold basis was repeated to the secretary today by a representative of the Associated Press, who found him at the home of Mr. Frank P. Helm, in Covington, and he was asked about the matter. Carlisle at once said the statemeat was wrong. While he could not be ex pected to make public matters confided to him by the Chinese premier during his visit at Washington, there was no Impropriety In saying that LI Hung Chang's conversation about the affairs In China was all based on the assump tion that the present financial system should not be changed. re-elected to the 64th congress from the Third Georgia Congressional Dis trict After a protracted and exciting contest he was elected speaker of the house In the 5?d congress.
