' There has been mora capital In
vested In Astoria ana more improve
ments made during the past year than
In any previous five years of its his
tory. One reason for this is that the
ity and county are better advertised
than either have ever . been before.
Another reason is that a large acces
sion to its population is composed ot
the enterprising and rustling business
element from the east, who have
awakened the lagging Interest mani
fest in some of the old Itmers. There
has not been a dollar Invested in As
toria during the past three years but
what is paying a good interest on the
investment. The people appreciate
newcomers and are willing to aid them
in any legitimate enterprise.
People who have come here within
the past two years and started new
enterprises have been compelled to en
large their plant in order to accommo
date their fast increasing business.
This has created a demand for more
laborers. Many new houses have been
built to accommodate the newcomers.
New stores have been built to meet
the wants and requirements of trade,
and today Astoria is one ot the best
mi most prosperous cities on the Pa
elflc coast. There has bee)n more
aoney invested in the saimon industry
luring the past two years than in any
ten preceding ones. The artificial
propogatlon of salmon has proved a
success and the demand for Colum
bia river salmon far exceeds the sup
5 The timber Industry has nearly
doubled resulting in an increased out
put of logs and an increased amount of
lumber manufactured. Two large saw
anills have been constructed and ,the
three1 mills in 'operation ' in j Astoria
have increased their business during
the past year and the demand for Clat
sop county lumber h constantly in
creasing. New logging camps have
been started in Astoria with sufficient
capital to put It on its feet that has
not proven a paying Investment and
provided; dividends for1 its owner
There has not been a business failure
in Astoria for three years, showing
that business Is good and the city in
a healthy financial condition.
There is only one thing lacking to
make the county the most prosper
ous in the state, and that is more
farmers and dairymen. No other coun
ty affords such a good field for In
vestment, with the richest of soil
making both Industries profitable
There Is a market In Astoria for every
pound of farm produce that can b
raised and everything brings a good
price. There is never a failure of crops
and when the seed Is planted In the
ground all that remains is the har
vest. There is not a state east of the
rocky mountains where farmers and
dairymen can do as well as In Clatsop
county. If people can be Induced to
eome heer and look over the situation
there will be no doubt of their locating
and becoming . permanent residents.
With a large farming community;
with hundreds and thousands of acres
devoted to dairying, the population of
the county will grow and the popula
tion of the city will show a marked
Astoria has a population of at least
14,000 today, an increase of about 4000
In the past two years. There are no
Idle men, work Is plentiful and will
Increase. Strikes and labor troubles
are unknown, for the reason that good
wages are paid and the mechanics and
laboring men are contented and happy
There Is no doubt but there will be
thousands of visitors in Astoria dur
ing the coming summer and efforts
should be made to entertain them and
explain the great possibilities of the
city and county for investment and
residence. This duty devolves to 8
great extent upon the chamber of com
merce and Push Club, and they will
no doubt perform their share of the
work. A copy of a live Astoria paper
should be placed In the hands of every
visitor, for people looking for a loca
tion form their ideas of a community
from the newspapers published. It h,
a mirror reflecting the sentiments and
business of a city, a guide for invest

the advertisements of enterprising

A communication from G. G. Palm-
Fortland, Ore., Feb. 22, 1905.
Editdr Morning Astorian:
Dear Sir I want to put you wise to
a very clever scheme that Is now
hatching that shows the old Portland
hog In its true colors. Portland never
wants Astoria to have anything it can
keep away and the sorest thing it has
ever had to put up with was the elec
tion of an Astoria man to the United
States senate ' two years ago. Now j
there Is a Job on foot to steal the sen
atorshlp away from Astoria. A meet
ing of the Oregon Devleopment' Asso
ciation or league has been called to
be held here In a short time. The al
leged purpose Is to make arrangements
for the representation of counties at
the Lewis and Clark fair. The real
game, the nigger In the woodpile, is
to bring out T. B. Wilcox for senator
to succeed Mitchell next time and
Judge Harry Cake to succeed Fulton
In 1909. Both of these men have the
bee in their bonnet very bad. Both are
leaders In the Commercial Club, which
Is close to the Oregon Delevopment
League and controls Its policy. Cake
is to be promoted by degrees. The
trick of the gang Is to make him mayor
of Portland this year. That would
make him first in line for the repub
lican nomination for governor next
year, and if elected then he would as
pire for .the senatorship in 1909, and
either get It, or defeat Astoria's can
didate. This Is a great proposition
and I hope you wlH put our people onto
it. You can see through It when you
are told that there Is nothing but hog-
gfshness in the Portland makeup.

Nothing can be good for everything,
Doing one thing will bring success.
Doan's Kidney Pills do one thing
only. , i ?' . vv-
They are for sick kidneys.
They cure backache and every kid
Here Is evidence to prove it:
i J. Blake, whose place of residence Is
S25 Market street, Portland, says: . '1
bought several boxes of Doan's Kid
ney Pills, and I scarcely think If the
first had not proved satisfactory that
I would have tried the second or third.
I have used In my time almost every
thing said to be a cure for weakened
or overexcited kidneys and bladder
but nothing ever gave me the satis
faction I revelved from Doan's Kid
ney Pills. They are easy to take, have
no effect upon the stomach or bowels
and act directly on the kidneys, and I
thoroughly believe from the results I
receive"! andl also from observation
that Doan's Kidney Pills are one prep
aration on the market which acts di
rectly as represented."
