THE OREGONIAN'S NEW WHEAT
Discussing the merits of Astoria's
claims to equal railway rates with the
Cities of Puget sound from interior
common points, among other things,
the Astorian recently said: .. ,
The Astorisn's claim is that wheat
delivered by the railroads at the mouth
of the Columbia river, without extra
freight charges to th producers,
through the extension to the seaboard
port of Astoria of the same common
point freight rates charged to the more
distant and inaccessible ports on Pugt
sound, would net the producers at least

national development In the ParltV
ocean demand that Oregon shall take
a prominent stand upon the varioua
questions that will arise in the nation's
councils. Oregon must be In the front

pertains to the development of Pacific

position to an absurdity in the follow
ing language. It said:
From this statement it is easily de
ducible that four-fifths of this money
msy at once be saved to the producers
and the other one-fifth secured for op
eration and profit by the Astoria rail
road. The amount of wheat and flour
shipped from the Columbia river last
yearthe best year and heaviest ship
ments ever known was about 500,000
tens. The saving, then, of two and one
half million dollars would be five dol
lars a ton. Now one dollar a ton from
Portland to Astoria would enable the
Astoria railroad to make a good deal
of money. It is as good a thing as a
railroad would want. Thus, of the
$2.600,000-the Increased value which
606,000 tons of wheat would have at As
toriathere would be $2,000,000 left forj
distribution among the producers.
