THE MORNING ASTORIAN, THURSDAY, MARCH 17, 1901.
Present Harbor Restrictions Work
Serious Hardships on Astor
ia's Shipping Interests.
CHAMBER TAKES UP MATTER
Alteration 1 s Needed Prom Smith
Point to Tongue and Gov
ernment Officials Will HeJ2
, Asked for Belief.
The matter of the alteration of the
harbor lines along the Astoria water
front will doubtless soon again be tak
en up by the Chamber of Commerce.
The existing lines are not at all satis
factvy. and it la felt that the govern
ment officials should agree to a sult
- able change. There Is always more or
less prejudice against change of har
bor lines, but In Astoria's case the
present location of the line is detri
mental to the shipping interests of the
Recently, It will be recalled, the
chamber asked that the harbor lines
In the eastern portion of the city be
altered, and the government officials
finally agreed to a change. However,
the new lines are practically as bad as
the old and the eastern harbor is still
shut oft from deep water. This limits
the mills there to vessels of small draft
and places a serious handicap on these
Institutions, one of which, the Hume
mill, would, If It had access to ample
depth, load many large vessels.
Now complaint is made that the low
er harbor lines are not properly locat
ed, and there is a determination on the
part of wharf owners and others di
rectly interested to have them extend
ed north. At many of the docks there
Is not more than 20 feet of water at
low tide, which is altogether too little
to accommodate the demands of ship
ping. A the last meeting of the cham-t-r
thp n atter was discussed at length,
1 nt i jvt no definite action has been
S-V- n. ftt is likely those-persons most
interest .;J will press the proposal, with
tV 'a view of securing relocation
of ihd , r -sent lines from Tongue point
to K ','!! point
