An Open River
People of Astoria Urged to In
terest Themselves in Pro-
ject Under Way. ,
Levi W. Meyer, secretary of the
Columbia River Improvement Associa
tion, offer an excellent luggestion In
a letter to The Aitorlan. He believe
a river Improvement convention should
be held for the purpose of urging upon
congress the necessity of opening the
Columbia. Mr. Meyers" letter follows;
"Portland, Sept. 10.-(Edltor The As-torlan)-lt
seems to me that the open
ing of the Columbia river to unobstruct
ed commerce, between The Dalle and
Cellio, i one of the most important of
all the public enterprise now before
the people of our state, and I drop you
a few lines to ascertain how you think
and feet about it, and to ascertain
whether the people of Astoria will take
part In a river Improvement convention
that Is projectel to be held some time
next month at The Dalles. I wll! not
undertake to review the history of this
river question, Its present status or Its
prospect In the future, for you already
know all about these matters. It Is
sufficient to say that nothing will be
accomplished In the way of a pwma
nent improvement at the point of ob
struction designated until there Is a
decidedly popular demand for It. At
present all talk about omethlng about
to be done Is, ubtantially, to kUl time
and stave off the inevitable.
"I have corresponded with editors of
the Inland Empire about thi Improve
ment and a mas convention to help
it along, and all favor it: only cooper
ation at Oil end of the river 1 neces
sary to give It life and force.
"I am a citizen of Portland, but my
interest In public affairs I not tied up
In this city or even In this state. I
know something, about the improve
ment of rivers, navlng lived for a large
part of my life on the banks of the
Mississippi, and I want to see the Co
lumbia opened to the Pacific. It ought
to be done, and it can be done It the
people will press congress vigorously
enough through the delegations fromthe
North western states. I do not believe
it will be done In any other way and so
I favor this proposed convention. What
will Senator Fulton say about it? '
There has been rivalry between this
city and Astoria. It ought not to have
been, but the solution of this matter Is
the opening of the Columbia to Lew
iston and of the Snake Into Idaho.
Open the rivers to safe navigation and
then let the laws vf trade and of trans
portation determine results. The city
that can build most boat and do the
carrying to the best advantage should,
and will, control the trade and make
the shipments to the Orient. Has not
Astoria as vital an interest here as any
other city of the Northwestr
The contents of Mr. Meyers letter
tn senator Fulton yester
fday and the senator was asked for an
expression. He sam.
I belfeve the suggestion for a river
Improvement should be adopted. A
convention of the kind suggested would
show congress the deep interest which
the people of the Columbia basin take
in the matter of the open r ver and
would. I believe, perhaps have Influence
In securing the necessary appropriation;
To my mind, the convention aljould be
held at an early date, and,
people of Eastern Oregon ought to be
most largely represented. It w-ould be
well to have representation from As
toria, as showing that the Improvement
affects the Interests of all alike. I think
the Idea is an excellent one and hope
It will be carried out."
PAY YOUR TAXES. ,
Deputy Sheriff Binder is anxious that
property owners be again cautioned
that taxes will become delinquent on
October 5, the first Monday In the
month. Many tax payers are inclined
to be forgetful and when they see their
t roperty advertised for sale are sudden
ly reminded of their failure to dis
charge a public duty. Property own
ers should remember that they will ex
perience much difficulty In redeeming
their property once Is Is sold, and as the
time for paying taxes is growing short,
lellnquents sshould settle up at once.
NEW ARRANGEMENT FOR LOUVRE.
Charles Wirkkala has assumed man
agement of the Louvre, the well-known
resort, succeeding Victor Llndbeck.who
goes to Portland. Mr. Wirkkala will
probably sever his connection with the
firm of Seafeldt & Wirkkala and give
his entire time to management of the
Louvre. It is his intention to thorough
ly renovate the place and arrange for
attractions of Interest.
