Int-wlewa will be followed In due time by others, JUDGE F. J. TAYI.OR-"In my opinion there are two factor, which hav opt a ted lo retard Astoria", advancement. First, the shallow d'pth at the river en. trance bofr the government completed Its grMt Jetiy. This, quite naturally, wa. eaten.lvely noised abroad to the dotr!ment of Columbia shipping at that tune. Second, the vindictive opposition of Portland, and t might add, Tacomo and 8.attlr as well, to any local cffVt we might make to a.scnt our cUlms. The oliWr residents will remember that year. ako tAstnrln began to assume an air of impiwtonc. and that the larger class of viwspIs lwran seeking admlstlon to our wharfage. Unfortunately the bar at the rhvr muth wa. then more or le an ImiHMllmont. Of course the Jetty now makes this city a perfect hrbor, and vwscta of any drnft can P'rt In her, but the old tWne Impression I. still f'K tn tnnlne circles, and It will take time M wlf to remedy tbe ca. The .econd ! question b a difficult onetto an.wer. It Is a well known fact, howev.r, that se. artle merchants hav. asserted mat it Portland will keep her thumb on Astoria Ion enough they will tk care of Portland, As Portland refuse, to con template harmony, and Seattle Is rar Idlv closing the gap m population as against Portland. H would seem that B- attile Is keeping her word. But on. fact la certntn. Th. location ot Astoria give, the assurance that In the general re organisation plan nnw In process among 1t railroads throtignout tn country, i she will beyond peradvantwe, assent her Importance and assume leadership aa th. seaport of the entire northwest." ITERMAN VT8E-"Th absence of 8 altle spirit; a lack of enmwy and unity: Insufficient selfwellance; a hope that someimdy else will do our work and by so doing mak ua rich. In short, my ex perience satisfied me that Just a. soon as a man displays a mile energy ana me possibility of success In Astoria he en genders the jealousies of the element known aa the 'stil'tless.1 I am told that If a man In Seattle beg.ns to prosper ha Is enoauraged patted on the back, as It were, am) given a pull.

Astoria nas never shown any concerted action to prop, i erly baffle tbe opposition of Portland, j mere nas oeen a onaraeter ot oissensun n-snifv.ted here that wouhl .tide any town. Replying to question two, I would say that a meeting of taxpayers and others Interested should be called, and resolution passed tendering encourage. mem and assistance to th present dis cussion. Such resolutions should mean something and be given proper publicity. It should also be explained that the rail road doesn't, by any mean., own all of Astoria', waterfront. As a matter of fact, the people own the best part of H. There Is plenty of room for other Invest ors. The O. R. N. Is now dredging in front of Its doc, which) proves that It got an Inforlor locaion. There is an abundance of deep wtvfrjntag, and the right sort of push should ereot on It the warehouses and elevators which the city must have." JOHN ADAIR "I have two reasons to account for the slow growth of Astoria. First, for years, and until the Jetty was constructed, the world knew that vessel, of only 18 feet draught could enter tbe river. This information was sent out by Portland. Second, Astoria needed a rati" road. To your other query I would say that W9 hav an Inviting city, and. with a neighborly spirit evinced, and some Chlena hustle to ke.p It company, the future is not douh'ful. The proposition Is nol ons for mere discussion, however. Action' should be the word." j C. W. FUVTON There are a number of reasons Which might be logically ad. j vnnced In answerlmt your first question. Off-hand. It would b quit wnposstble to enumerate them. On Important factor that has dogged Astoria's advancement ha. been fhe denial to her of common pomt rates. This refer, to wheat for ex port, as M I. understood sbe la commoa on east-bound products. CouM ,we hav common point privileges. It would mean the construction of large elevators and flouring mills, and In their train would naturally follow a large number of kin. dred Industrie. Question two Is rather a .broid on. To think of harmonising Ith PortUnd Is folly, If the harmony purposes relief frotr the railroad altua. on. Portland Isnt giving anytblng away, whether approached with taffy cj abuse.- WTwt lever we get we will haw to contend for. In my opinion there are three things w ought to do to secure our share of foreign commerce. The first, of course. Is to force common point rates for the export of wheat.
