THE MORNING ASTORIAW, ASTORIA, OREGON.
Indications Point to a Successful
Year in Astoria.
eastern People coming in
While Mny Improvement Ouohl to
Be Mde, the City It Prosperous and
Show Steady, Healthy Growth in
Both Business and Building.
Indications point to a busy season
in Astoria this summer and fall. A
Iarg8 rUn of salmon will distribute
thousands of dollars In the city and
ounty and give employment to a
large number of men. The building of
the railroad, while, at first did not
create any preemptible boom aj was
anticipated, is now reoognlted as an
Important factor In the development j
and building up of the city and coun
ty. - Merchants report business of all
kinds good; there is an unusual
amount of building going on, both In
business and residences, and there
has never been such a demand for
houses as th's spring.
At one time it was considered that
Astoria" future lay in the develop
ments to be promulgated by Mr. Ham
mond. He has done all he promised
to do and would have done more had
he been given the opportunity, but
people are beginning to rely more upon
their own exertions. They are adapt
ing themselves to circumstances; are
satisfied with their lot and the bright
condition of affairs and have Implicit
faith in the future. Astoria has not
been built up by a boom, it has in
creased In population and walth on
jt merits and location and grand na.
lural resources. True, there are a
umber of wealthy men in Astoria,
but many of them are interested in tha
Ashing industry and distribute thou
sands of dollars annually in the city
and vicinf y. The only ones that are
suffering for the want of a boom are
those having large landed interests.
They have given of their lands liber
ally and donated money to establish
and take sWk In new enterprises, and
they are not in a position to inaugu
rate a boom.
Nature has done wonders for Asto
ita. It has given It one of the bes.t
aatural harbors on the coast; It has
filled Its mountains with coal, Iron,
timber; filled its rivers with an abund
ance of the finest salmon in the world,
providing employment for thousands
f honest fishermen. Clatsop count
las some of the finest dairying and
agricultural lands on the coast, and all
that Is lacking to provide for the lmt
jratlon of eastern farmers, is good

Astoria, while an old city In point
f years, is comparatively new in de
relopment. There Is not a more
iealthy climate In the world than at
tile mouth of the Columbia. It has the
finest summer resort on the north Pa,
aific coast . visited by thousands of
people every year who come to en.
joy the health invigoratlnfe sea
breeaes. Game and fish in endiess va
riety are found in its mountains and
The people of Astoria have won the
reputation of being the most hospit
able and best entertainers In the Unit
ed States and its reputation; ha9
spread all over the entire land. A
large majority of the merchants ar
enterprising, wide-awake men who
have shared the profits of their busi
ness with enterprises calculated to
benefit the' city and bring people hero.
True, there are some drawbacks that
materially interfere with the prosper
ity and growth of Atsoria, but It is
only a matter of time when there will
be swept away. It may be a year, it
may be two years, or it may be five
years, before the advantages of As
toria are fully appreciated, but a city
with so many opportunities for Inven
Kent and making money cannot be
But Astoria must learn not to de-
Bend too much upon its salmon In
dustry. Astoria can be made one of
the most prosperous cities on the
roast, and that will be when there are
good county roads, the agricultural
!ands are occupied by thrifty farmers
and when from ten to a hundred farm
wagons come to Astoria every week;
when we produce farm products sufll
lent to supply our own people and
do not have to send out of our own
city for everything we consume and
pay exhorbltant prices for them
