The steamer State of California did
cot reach the Astoria dock yesterday
morning until nearly T o'clock, although
she lett Portland on schedule time. On
account of low water the steamer was
u able to round the Tongue so she cast
anchor for a few hours and waited for
the t!d to rise. She bad a fair paseen-
gr list and cargo and took on a quan-
tfiy of freight nere. She went out at
10 0 clock.

Dr. Styner, the electric doctor, re
turned on last night's express from
Portland, where he was called Thurs
day evening by a telegram of pressing
importance. During Dr. Stjner's ab
sence nearly M persons called on him.
The doctor regrets that he was compell-
ed to disappoint his callers, but his ab-
sence in Portland could not be avoided.
Owing to the many persons now recelv-
lug Dr. Styner's treatment, he win re-

Two Astorians were disputing yes
terday, one claiming that this year
closed the 19th century and the other
insisting that the century does not end

Portland Move for a Thirty Foot Chan,
nol Proves That lrt Inadvquate
Positive friends of Portland
been fond of saying that a channel t
the sea 12 feet deep waa enough. They
haw pointed out that other ports are
shallow too, that ships that visit them
can oo-ne to Portland, and hence there
Is no need of more water when It can
not be used.
But recently when It Is seen that big
ships, sail Portland announced that
55-foot channel would at once be dredg
ed out to the sea, and now later It
stated that a SO-foot channel Is requir
ed. This latter statement concedes the
contention of Astoria, that the sea
port ot Oregon must be able to ac
commodate, the heavy commerce of the
It seems like a great undertaking to
remove seven and a half feet from
the bottom of the Willamette and Co
lumbia rivers for a distance of liW
miles, though It Is possible that JO feet
of water already exists evcept at
f v points. The expense of dredging
the New York channel from !S to 35
feet for a distance of only seven miles
roni up Into the millions and It is no.
Just plain to see where the money Is
coming from to undertake a greater
work In Oregon. Would It not be U-tter
to take the money that will be required
for dredging and put It Into gTaln ele
vators at Astoria and Flavel? If Port
land will send the wheat of the Wil
lamette and Columbia valleys tr the
mouth of the Columbia, there will be
nothing to fear from Seattle or San
Francisco. There will be no need of
sending wheat fron Oregon to San
Francisco for reshlpment. The tea In
spector will be brought back to Ore
gon and that, too, without the Interven
tion of the congressional delegation.
Besides our railroad will have full
cats eastward. Portland will be the
distributing point Instead ot Seattle and
Tacoma. London Is a big town, though
Liverpool Is the shipping port.

wldffelt Interest In Its treatment. It Is
tn-atid In the simplest way possible al
