The Astorian has always contended
tliat Astoria could never .be developed
against the opposition of Portland. It
has always ben the Astorian's en
deavor to obtain the cooperation of
Portland in the utilisation of Astoria's
undoubted advantages as the seaport
of the Pacific Northwest as against
any port on Puget sound. It has been
repeatedly asserted by the Astorian
that the people of Portland were like
any other people, and that their preju
dices against Astoria were born of fan
cied self-interest and out due to feel
ings of malice or sentimental concern
over Astoria's possible rivalry us the
metropolis of Oregon. Once convince
Portland people that commerce cannot
be held at Portland. Once convince
them that the Columbia river is losing
- trade and commerce in consequence of
th. ...pmn. t maintain th. apnnort of :

Southern Pacific Company Trying to
Hnv? Chlpmnn Appointed on Inter
state Commerce iVminisatan.
The Southern Paelrto Company Is try.
Ing hard to get Oen-nil N. P. Chlpman
Into the Intel-state Commerce Commis
sion. Within the past two or three
days the activity of the hired men of
the big corporation has Ixvn partlru
laxly in evidence, says the San Fran
Cisco Call. The newspaper orgiu cm
trolled by It In the Interior, following
out the tactics of ofTU-iol dwellers In
the yellow "knockery." have begun a
campaign of abuse against William R.
Wheeler, who Is the candidate of all the
commercial bodies on the Pacific coast
from Puget sound to San Diego.
The purpose of this Is to affect the
minds of those wh are friendly to
Wheeler, and also to get the idea
abroad that the people of the slate of
California are opposed to Mr. Wheeler,
and especially to make an Impression
of that sort in the national capital.
Marked copies of papers containing at
tacks and reflections upon Mr. Wheel
er are going out to senators and mem
bers of congress representing' the Pa
ciflc coast states.
Still another scheme has ben put
Into operation, which Is to have rumors
published that President McKinley has
expressed his intention to name one or
another man from the Middle West to
All the vacancy upon the Interstate
Commerce Commission and to ignore
the Pacific coast, which has never had
a member of the commission, and is
now united for one candidate prartlc
ally, the exception being the Southern
Pacific Con-pany. Within the past three
days friends of Mr. Wheeler Have been
quietly Informed that President Mc
Kinley had decided to name S. H. Flfer
0f IIlinolS' ImUlry ha invariably led
j to the knowledge that the rumor start-
from thf yeow ..knockery .
An Ingenious form of the story wait
given out in a morning paper yester-
day nd ft ran thU: "Chlpmtn
not be appointed. The Southern
, .
Pacific Company has evidently lost the
flght to secure the position for him."
Then the following was published
' Word was received from Washington
yesterday that seems to Indicate that
President McKinley has no Intention
of selecting any from this coast.
