The case of the Herald Publishing
Company vs. J. H. D. Oray and oth
ers, which yas settled by Circuit Judge
MeBrlde on Monday, makes the Week
ly Herald one of tho two o clal organs
of thg county. Tho law xovernfng
the matter of awarding county print
ing contracts Specifies that papers
submitting bids shall Ale lists of their
wbsorlbers. The Herald complied with
this feature of the law tarty In the
year, but the county court awarded
the contract Jointly to the Budget and
Dailly News, Thereupon the Herald
commenced injunction proceedings, but
lost out on the Injunction because It
had not taken the proper legal pro
cedure. The matter had to go before
the circuit court, on appeal from the
order of the county court making the
two dally paper mentioned the or
gans of the county. The decree hand
ed down by Judge MeBrlde gives the
Herald Judgment tor $23.73 for print
ing the proceedings during the months
of April, May and June; costs and
disbursements, taxed at IS; l.nd denig
nnites that, paiwr as one of ths official
organs of the county. Ths Budget Al
ed a list of Its subscribers, in accord
ance with the law, but the Dally News
neglected to do so, and It Is probable
that, In accordance with" the circuit
court order, the Budget and Herald
will lie awarded the Joint contract.
The case Is of Interest to Oregon pub
lishers because It demonstrates that
papers mut Ale circulation lists te-
fore securing printing controls.
At almost every meeting of local
cornmorclal bodies considerable dis
cussion takes place regarding Clat
sop's resource. Monday night's meet
ing of the Chamber of Commerce was
no exception. Mr. Delllnger, w ho re
cently returned from a vWR to Hum
toidt county, Cal,, said thai the !o.nd
valued at $20 an acre here would
bring 1400 in Humboldt. G. W, Louis-
berry said he had made S trip over
the .pipe line road four years ago, snd
that he made a second trip over the
road on Sunday last. On his first vis-
It he had stopped t the farm now
owned by B. 8. Woreley. Then It was,
figuratively speaking, a barren waste.
Mr. Worsley was laughed at by the
settlers of the neighborhood when he
bought the place and was told that he
would rtarve If he depended on the
farm for a livelihood. However, start
ins; with absolutely no experience, but
Intelligent energy, Mr. Worsley has
converted hi farm 4nto a veritable
Garden of Eden, and Is raising the fin
est, berries that grow In, this part of
the country. He has a farm now that
would be a credit to any community,
and ft has proved a good bunineas In
ventment. There are hundreds of Just
Kuob tracts wa!tic development,
and the commercial bodies will ad
vTt1e the situation over the country.
WANTS TO BUY POME SEALS. -
Oakland Water Company 'Need Them
In Its Business.
Pish Warden Van Dunen is in re
ceipt of the following letter from Ar
thur L. Adams, who was the engineer
in charge of the waterworks construc
tion In thls-cliy.
" Oakland. Cal., July . H. O. Van
Dunen, Aatoria Dear Sir. On behalf
of the Contra Costa Wader Company,
I am anxious to secure a number of
en la for , the purpose of , placing in
one of our large reservoirs, vhwe we
are troubled with a too rapid propa
gation of Af.- Remembering that
these animals are frequently caught
by the fluhermen si Astoria, and re
membering your connection with the
fishing tnduxtry In Oregon, I write
you to see If an arrangement could
be made whereby seals could be se
cured there and shipped to us here.
Could you secure a number rut ex
ceeding, say, a dot hi, ait'., If so, at
what price?" .
Mr. Van Dueen n a quanrt.-y as to
what to do 'for Me. A .1a ma and th
Contra Costa Water Company, i.i, J he
Is anxious for the fishermen to take up
the proposal. Seals are caught a'.r.ont
dally by tlie fiahermm of Astor'a, and
if some idea of what a seal is wtrHi
can be secured the fish warden will
a((UHlnt the engineer with ! Inlor
mation. Unfortunately for Mr. Adaim
and his plan, seals are not a
stable article of trade here, and Just
what one would be worth Is a ques
tion. However, the fisherman would
probably know what It would be wj.th
to. deliver one of "(he arJnvils at the
local cannery for which ; he Ahes.
Any fisherman who has tlw mlsfo: tune
to catch a seal is requested to 1 ring
it to his cannery and acquaint the
fish warden with the fact. He can
then place a price upon it, and the eth
er eleven can be anuiied for.

rO HOLD THE REGATTA
COM.MITTEi; TO JIK XAMfcl)
(iciicmr Demand Tlmt the Cur
nival Kliull Take iln ; as
In ForiiH'r Yfars. ;
The regular meeting of the Push
Club will be held this evening. Among
the matters to be brought before the
meeting -will be the report of the com
mittee appointed for ihe purpose rf
canvassing the regatta situation.-The
committee will submit the names of
ths gentlemen who win have charge
of the regatta, and will also make Its
report with reference to the sentiment
that exists tn the city and elsewhere
as to the holding of the (arnlval.
The committee has been nard ' at
work for several days and has Inter
viewed nearly all the business men of
Astoria. In every case the hope was
exprened that the regatta would be
held this year, and several merchants
voluntarily offered ' to dmt!" their
subscriptions. Some of toe business
men called on were very much opposed
to a program that would take the
crowd to A. F, C. Park, while oth
ers thought it would be advlxable to
provide as much amusement as pos
sible for the visitors, no matter where
they were "taken. The general senti
ment was summed up yesterday after
noon by". H. Cooper, who said;
" The return a, apart from being a
good buainen investment, should be
encouraged because it brings large
crowds to Astoria and results In
splendid advertisement. It usually
mean $40,000 or $50,000 to the city.
snd this Is an Item that Is worth while
looking after. If the regatta is not
held 8hl year. It will probably r.ever
again be held, and for this reason we
should alt lend our efforts to make It
a socceKs. It is not difficult to under
stand that It Is Impossible to please
everyone, but he committee tan do
its beat and give satisfaction to the
majority of the people. ' Some of ihe
merchants are not directly benefited
by the regatta, but anything that
brings mo tey Into the city must be a
good thing for everybody, directly or
The Push Club committee yesterday
called on, those gentlemen who had
been selected to manage the regatta,
and there was not a single refusal.
Some of the gentlemen said they would
be unable to devote as much time to
the. carnival as they would wish to
give it, but all promised to assist In
every possible manner. As hast? is
eseentlal the regatta committee wUl
have not time to beg subscriptions
from anyone, and the people of the
city should definitely decide on their
subscritplons before the committee
calls. Almost every committee that
ever took hold of a public enterprise
has met with the request, " Call again;
I have not yet decided how much I
shall give." This year Were will be
no time for a second call, and mer
chants and others will be expected to
subscribe without parley.
