While he ships large quantities from that slat1, he also buys heavily In the north- west. Now the situation Is this: Mr. McNearwould buy In Astoria rather than go farther up the coa-st. - he rould buy as cheaply here. But we cannot offer 1 tlm the Inducsroent an.1 there you are. ' Just as soon a Aatorlans can say to the shipping world, 'we can sell you at the same price Portland and Seattle quotes, then the boom Is on, and the city will rise, from her aohes. In so far as the harbor entrance Is supposed to have toem a detriment. I attach but little un. portance to that. That matter should not be a proper one for much discussion, anjiway, as the Jetty has remedied th. trouble. If any ever existed' A. J. MEJLER-As a preliminary answer, let me say, drop all antagonism with Portland. You can't catch Hie with 'w vlmsar. In addition, the people hou:d awaken from the comatose Mat; whfch seems everywhere so apparent. The As- 1 U-rtan Is doing a great work in confront- Ing them with their fallings. I trust it will serve to stir tlvem up to a real las. tlon of the emergency. There is no ques. tlon tout that a marked change Is com- 1 in, and a chance for the better.

There Is 1 no effort made to foa'.er any lo-alty for Astoria's welfare. Why this should be the case one can only conjecture, hut It Is the truth, nevertheless.

This would do away iwKh all lll feellng, and bring the taxpayer, and oth ers together In a way to guarantee a prosperous future. All that Astoria needs Is for her cltltens to pull In unison.

AMERICA AND ENGLISH TEAMS NOW TRAINING. Preparations for the Great Interawtlonal Event Are Progressing Favorably. LONDON. July 11 Both the American ini ths SnsrUss teams In their iracticsj at the queen's county club, are dotntj good work but th records given out on each side are Inaocunvte, as the trainer, prefer to underestimate such perform ance. The Americana did extremely well at the hurdles and In the quarter mil. and tho ErrglMj In the broad jump. The American team is lighter and more agile than the English athletes and are In fine physical condition. The experts now concede b hammer, throw, the . Ugh. jump and the quarter mile to the Amerl cans and the broad jump, mile and thre. miles to the English. The remalnrnsr thre. events are doubtful, with rhe pro, ability that the Americans will take th. half mils and have a flphting chance for either the hurdles or the 100-yard dash. Two or three sporting writers) bars ven tured to refer to Qutnlan and Burke aa proopslonals, who ought not to take part as amateur In those intei-unlverelty sport. There Is no great ground for tha- charge, since both are 'Harvard students and never has ever run for money or against profewlonalt. It may be stated that the Oxford and Cambridge managers are entirely satis. fled with the evidence that these two mn are not In any sense profemtonal. and that there It no ground for suspicion of any sharp practice on the American skie.

She Is Made to Slide Over the Waves by a Peculiar Form of Hull LONDON, July 18.-The Daily Mall, which gives what It calls the "secret of the Shamrock's construction, hitherto carefully guarded to prevent it toeing being utllixed by America," says: "The Shamrock Is designed with swan Ilka lines, rounded In such a way as to hardly cause a ripple In her wake. She displace. the smallest possible amount of water. Her keel is shaped almost like a thick letter T. so that she can turn as If on a pivot. It is claimed and proved that th. Is two seconds tamer than the Columbia in stays. The secret, therefore, was an exten sion of the theory that rhe yacht should endeavor to slide over, instead of cut. ting through the water." DR.
