NEW YORK THIXKS SO, TOO.
The remarks of The Astorian the
ether day concerning the ridiculous
claim of Puget sound, based on the
,h h ntrtr In that inlet I
deep, are so strikingly echoed in the j
last number of the New York Tribune i
that the article in that paper is here
- Quoted: ' ' '
"Cable reports say that Bourke Cock
ran in some of his eloquent addresses
in Erin has been predicting that Ire-
' land will achieve marvelous gains in
; future generations, because the huge
transatlantic steamships of later years
bigger vessels than any , known in
- these timesmust perforce use har
bors on the western coast of Ireland.
If Mr. Cockran's supposed utterances
have been correctly reported, is this
not a somewhat airy and unsubstantial
vision? Great vessels ply to and from
great centers of commerce not else-
What lends additional force to the
Tribune's contention is that it is made
' Incidentally, as one might use any oth
er axiom to enforce a statement.
"AFFECTS ENGINEERS AND PILOTS
' Many Astorians will be Interested to
learn that a recent decision of the New
Tork board of steamboat Inspectors is
So the effect that "masters, pilots and
1 marine engineers - holding United
- State's licenses, may not by concerted
action, force a readjustment of their
wages or hours of work.". .
. The decision was rendered in the case
of Joseph Cornell, who left his engine
on the tug VigDant because the de
mauds of the Marine Engineers Bene
ficial association regarding wages were
, not compiled with by the employers.
Cornell's license was withdrawn by the
board. Commenting on the case the
New. York Tribune says:
"In effect, the 'inspectors declare that
a master-pilot or marine engineer may
not use the exclusive, privileges given
him by his license to enforce the pay
ment of certain wages and a change of
hours; whether the demands be rea
sonable or unreasonable. In this in
stance the members of the association
were not permitted to treat with their
employers as individuals. It Is under
stood that the pilots of this port and
the pilots and engineers of the other
carts of the Atlantic seaboard were
watching the effect of the strike here j
with the view of carrying out the same
tactics elsewhere if they proved suc
cessful." .s. . ..

The buildings at Fort Columbia were
tested yesterday by the firing of the
guns, preparatory to the troops being
moved in from Fort Canby. Captuin
Goodale went over from Astoria to at

found to be satisfactory. It wa
thought possible that the firing of tlw
guns might affect the buildings so that
they would be unsuitable places for
