NEGROES IN CHICAGO STRIKE.
One fact that baa been conclusively
established by the strike of the CM
cago teamitera ta that they wilt not
endure negroes as strike breakers and
competitors In labor. More than s
thousand negroes from the south,
chiefly from Kentucky and Missouri,
were carried to Chicago to take the
places of striking drivers. The negroes

STREET , IMPROVEMENTS.
It Is evident that the common coun
m avooui au in, juaging irom a
statement made by A. M. Smith, Judge
Advocate general of the common coun
cil, last Tuesday night, "when he' stat
ed that the four small street improve
ments now under consideration, would
' be all that the city could make until
swnt of the old stre assessments
were collected in. As It wll ltake near
ly four months, and possibly longer,
to collect tn jthese delinquent assess
ments, it is very doubtful If any more
street improvements will be made In
Astoria this year. This Is to be re
gretted as there are two or three
streets that are almost an absolute
necessity. Exchange from Seventeenth
to the CUitsop mill is one of them.
The people residing along Irving ave
nue wire very anxious to have that
street Improved, but will have to wait
smother year. This will put a stop to
the building of several fine residences
which were in contemplation.
Tke common council is not to blame
for this condition of affairs, so far as
the improvement of streets ls con
cerned It Is to- be admitted that
more economy could be " exercised la
natty of the departments and many
unnecessary bills done away with, but
the fact that there Is not sufficient
money for making street improve
ments is due to the refusal of the
property owners to pay their street
-assessments. Many of them have taken
advantage of the lax methods of the
city officials to enforce prompt pay- j
