HE Port of Astoria, tho body
having Jurisdiction on tho low-
or Columbia rlvor, Is puttinu
Its powors to good uso. Tho port 1ms
passed n good resolution favoring tho
bonding of tho port Tor $200,000. Tho
purposo Is to build and opornto boats
to run from Astoria to Lowlston and
for tho Installation of coal handling
equipment on tho municipal dock.
Two boats will bo loused and put in
operation Immediately and two others
will ho built. It Is probable when tho
now bouts aro completed that all four
will bo mnlutulued on tho run. 'mo
object or tho lino 1h to bring grain
nnd other products to tho mouth of
tho rlvor for export, thereby greatly
holplng tho port district nud tho com
munity. This action Indicates tho im
portance of tho power of tho port
commission. Tlio Port of Cons lliiy has
already bonded to Improve tho harbor
nud spend $000,000 In making a
deeper nud wider clinnnol and hns
mado other Improvements on tho hay.
Tho nort can somotlmo build n boat
bore. It can bo dono tho mime as It
was in AHtorla. A vossol owned by tho
port could ho operated to ndvnntago
nml profit and It is Just possible that
tho port may, In tho futuro, find It to
nu advantage to own a vessel.
WILL PROVIDE l'Olt HOYS
THE suggestion mado In an edi
torial lu Tho TlmoH recontly
that the boys should bo look
ed after and provisions mado for
their umusomont, attracted muoli
attention. Some of tho Eastslde
people acted promptly du the sug
gestion. In that city across the
bay the pooplo havo Just voted to
have tho school house used as n pub
lic gathering place and now It Is
suggested that tho basement of tho
school could bo used to very good
advantage If couvortod into a meet
ing placo for the boys, Tho base
mont Is not used for any other
purpose and It would make a fluo
(iub room for tho Eastsldo hoys.
Homo of tho ladles of that city who
aro Interested lu the work of the
school and young pooplo state that
tho suggestion lu Tho Times Is one
which they will tako up. The
Times congratulates tho pcoplo of
Eastslde on their pitbllo spirit and
especially tho ladles on their civic
prldo and progress.

well to select und cut trees which nro

Tho gypsy moth occurs hi tho egg
