Alout i year ago it became manifest to
the citizens and taxpayers of district No,
1, that the school facilities of the dis
trict were totally inadequate io its grow
ing wants. The Astoriak took the
ground that the present needs no less
than the future demands of the district
made necessary a building that would be
fully up to the necessities of that portion
of our growing city. This iden prevailed,
and when the preliminary steps were
taken it was with the uudeistanding that
the proposed building would le in every
way a credit to the city, and in keeping
with the educational wants of those who
are some dnv to take our places.
Plans and specihcations were submit
ted to the board ot directors, but owinc
to the great difficulty experienced in pro
curing material, it was decided that the
season was too far advanced to nttempt
anything till March or April. According-
iy,iasi spring piaus were again cuneu ior,
and it was finally decided to have the
bnildinc done bv dav s work, that being.
on the whole, a sure guarantee that the
work would be done m n manner that m
sured its permanence. Tho spacious
premises on the southwest corner Court
and lieiiton streets were selected as me
site of the building, and after the nec-
essarv !radiu(i had bean done the brick
walls of the foundation were laid to a
height of eleven feet. To Mr. J. S. V ms-
iow was civen xue suiwniiieiiueiice oi
construction, and how well and faith
fully he has discharged the trust a visit
to the building will abundantly prove.
As it now stands awaiting the finishing
touches, it is the mo.t conspicuous build
ing in the city, or in fact, on the Colum
bia river, as of right it should be and i3

in the Northwest. Built on one of the hill
side terraces among many private resi
dences that overlook the business por
tion of the city it is the first object on
which the eye rests as one approaches the
city. It has a frontage of S7 feet 8
inches on Uourt street, and J ieet on
Benton street. Entering the building
one notices the solidity with which cvery-
tbmc is constructed, and the care evinc
ed in procuring the newest contrivances
for comfort as well as the skill demon
strated in putting those appliances in
place. The brick basement is divided in
two parts. That portion lacing on lyourt
street is furthersubdivided by a hall into
two well-lighted school rooms, suitable
for primary pupils, for recitation rooms,
or for an indoor play ground as the needs
of the pupils iun- require. The rear half
of tho basement is devoted to heating
and ventilation. Two large brick furnaces
supplied by H. B. Chase furnish by,
means of huge tin pipes hot air to the
rooms above, and by an ingenious
arrangement of registers on the first floor
hall, the cold air is carried down into the
furnaces, there to be heated and ascend
to the different rooms, where further con
trivance combines to make the foul air
pass out of the rooms through a venti
lator, the final passage of the air being
through a well constructed ventilator in
tho tower. Pnssine to the first floor the
architectural beauty of tho stairs, built
by h,. and J. A. Martin, is noticeable, and
traversing a spacious hall lour well light
ed rooms are presented to view. Each
room is provided with registers,
speaking tubes, ventilators, patent
single desks, patent blackboards built
mio me wans, spacious anu weu-warmeu
closets for lunch baskets, coats, shawls,
hats, etc., and has six large windows
from which a magnificent view is observ
able. The basement rooms arc "55 feet
square, the other looms are 23 feet 4
inches by .11 feet, and have nigh and
finely finished ceilings. On tho next floor
above are four rooms similar in size and
finish to those below, furnished m accord
ance with tho requirements of tho larger
pupils. The northeast room on this floor
is intended for the use of the principal

Something for Astoria to Think Or.
The secretary read a letter from R.
Peterson of Gray's harbor, calling atten
tion to the lack of transportation facili
ties between Portland and that section,
and suggesting that the trade of Pacific
and Chenalis counties is well worth tho
attempt of merchants. In this connec
tion it was stated that a recent incorpor
ation proposed to build a narrow gauge
railroad from Ilwaco, and to place steam
ers on Shoalwater bay and Gray's harbor.
Now that steam connection by sea is sus
pended for tho winter, the necessity of
land service is keenly felt. Members of
the board exhibited much interest, and
expressed their willingness to assist the
corporation by taking stock. Portland
