Tn new poitnire road above Cas

will probably be opened for traffic to
morrow. a ith the aid of the Cascaje
locks vnlnterupted navigation of the
Columbia river wUl be opened up for
500 miles, almost from the head wat
ers of the river to Astoria, This Is th
project Astoria has long worked for In
order that wheat might be shipped
from eastern Oregon and Yaihljig-
tlon direct to Astoria.
It has not yet been determined who
will be In charg of the road. Menv
bers of the commission are now con
ducting correspondence regarding this
matter, but are not yet readyto make
any announcement. As soon as thl
step is taken, final arrangements fo
opening the rond wtll be made nt once.
The road will be operated under
regular schedule. The opinion has been
generally expressed that trains on the
road would run only as the traffic de
manded, but It Is the present Intention
of the Portage Railway commission
to establish a rcsular schedule.
The road Is nine miles In inigth and
Is well constructed. The equipment of
the roaJ consists of one engine, eight
flat cars, four boxcars, six stockcara
and one combination passenger and

It is very probable that a soon si
revised returns are In and reported
officially the population of the city
will pnobably reach 12,250 and the
county over 18,000. This shows an
Increase in the population of 4000, and
In the county of 2000, making a total
Increase in the county of about (000
an increase of 33 per cent in five years.
Astoria has Increased more in popu
lation during the past year than In
the other four since 1900 and at the
present ratio of increase, the popu
lation of Astoria at the time of the
next United States census will approxi
mate 20,000 and the county about 30,-
000. This is certainly a very credit
able showing and one which the pea
pie of Astoria and Clatsop county can
JuRtly feel proud. It must be taken
Into consideration that there are a
large number of Astoria's population
up the river Ashing, which could not
be enumerated, so that It is safe to
pay that the population of Astoria at
the preesent time is about 12,500.
