this railroad rule operates fairly so
far as other towns are concerned, why
should It not prove equally fair In As
toria's casi? The only answer to this
question Is that Portland desires to
handle the grain business that should
be handled at the ocean port.
There Is still another phase of the
situation to be considered. Portland,

THE INJUSTICE OF THB THING.
The Oregonian gleefully parades the
safe passage down the river of the big
carrier Lime Branch with her SOW tons
of dead weight. While the cesser
fine passage, without Injury, is not the
point for consideration at this time.
the Astorlan Joins with the OrestnLin
in congratulating the officers and men
on their safe trip and total escape from
accident of any other kind.
Our Portland friend Is not satisfied
to thus praise Its inland waterway, but
It must dabble Into the question of ter
minal rates with reference to the re
fusal of the railroad company to rut
Astoria on a plane with other seaports
of the Northwest. With remarkable
abandon, considering past settlement
to tbe contrary of this mooted ques
tion, the Oregonian says that ' the
argument sometimes advanced that
the railroad company should put this
w heat through by rail to Astoria at the
same rate as Is charged lor delivery at
Portland Is not sound, and the charge
sometimes made that the rail rate to
Portland is high enough to admit of a
haul from Portland to Astoria for
nothing has no direct bearing on the
ouestion of the haul between Portland
and Astoria." It adds that the qui-s-
tion is simply this: "Is the actual cost
of transportation per ton per mile as
cheap by rail as It is by water?"
Editor Scott is now on the bounding
Atlantic, and he canno be accused of
this very bad break. Presumably,
however, the Oregonian Is still ' the
recognized champion of the anti-As
toria sentiment, and the Astorlaa must
point out the error of its way
cuss the common po nt of question now
Is futile, for the day of Portland s in

The statement that the wheat of the
Inland Empire should .not oe put
through to Astoria for the same rate
charged to Portland is ridiculous from
any po"bIe standpoint except that ot
Portland's stlflshnees. The "common
point' method of extending rates is
purely a railroad creation in ogue
everywhere. It Is, in effect, that nil
points in a given territory shall be ac
corded equal rates fiort other points

Lh(Mr,i. v,. no win tt.nr.,t
t0 vr tor a moment the statement
is better located than
either Seattle or Tacoma. The Colum
bia gorge affords a gravity route to
the sea, wh-Mv.vs mountain range
make operating expenses much greater
to those ixa Is having terminals on the
Sound. Let us ask the Oregonian
whether or not the contention that As-
snoul:J 1x1 '),aoed on an
ing with the Pound is correct. Let us
ask further whether or not the cost
of hauling wheat to Portland from the
Inland Empire points Is less than the
cost of hauling to the Sound. Certain
ly, both 'Portland and Astoria are
more advantageously situated than Se
attie and Tacoma.
Th's beins true, then, why doesn't
the Oregonian demand better rates
than those extended to the Sound
cities? IT Astoria, being farther from
the wheat fields than Portland, isn't
entitled to as low rates as those in
vogue to Portland, vhy should not the
Oregon metropolis, with its better lo
cation and closer proximity to the
grain belt be given lower rates than
those extended to the Sound? The ab
surd Inconsistency of the Oregonian's
contention is painfully apparent.
The statement tint the rate ihargM
to Portland is not great enough to
cover the haul to Astoria is likewise
ridiculous. The present rate is extor
tlon. and with a reduction, of 35 to 40
tr cent would be ample to cover the
100-mile haul down the river.
The Oregonian is quite willing that
Portland should remain on an equal
basis with -.he Sound ports, but It de
mands that Astoria shall be placed at
a still greater aisaavaniage.
As to the cost of carrying the cargo
of the Lime Branch down the river, It
will be found that the rail rate will
be exceeded by the time the 1.200 tons
lighterage is placed aboard. Had th
Lime Branch met with the customary
delay on the way down, the cost wnula
have been far greater

A new and wonderful material has
been invented by an eminent Russian.
It Is known as uralite, after the Ural
mountains, and promises to revolution
ize building. Asbestos forms an Im
portant part of the substance. L'ral
Ite is very light and will not burn.
Doors made of the stun have been sub
jected to more than 2,700 degrees of
heat and have withstood it. The new
material Is twice as durable as Port
land cement, withstanding a pressure
of 18 tons to the square inch. It is
manufactured at small cost, and al
ready is In use In Russia and oth'-r
European countries. An Interesting
story of the process of manufacture ot
urallie appears in the current number
of the Scientific American.
That Clatsop county needs a new
courthouse is beyond dispute. The
present structure is a disgrace to the
community, anJ the disposition rruinl
fested by the r-ounly court to replace
it with a suitable building 's to be com
mended. One public building will fill
the needs of both city and county, and
the sfiggest'on that the courthouse be
likewise a :ity hall Is -a good one.
While roads are needed throughout the
country, there has been much work
along "this line of I ite, and now the
post pressing improvement Is the pro
posed courthouse. It is sincerely to
be hoped that the officials of the rlty
and county governments will find It
practicable to erect suitable quarters
