A visit to Uniontown In the west
end ot the city discloses the tact that
the people residing there have a city
ot their own. The population is com
nosed of Finns who are a frugal, in
dustrious people, horn builders and
with progressive tendencies. From

nearly all established within th past
two years. Almost every business Is
repressed. Two grocery stores, A.
V. Allen and the Suomalalnen Co-ope-
rative Company, one dry good3 store,
one clothing store and general mer
chandise stores. A saw mill, the As
toria Lumber Company, under the
management of Carlton B. Allen, with
a daily capacity of 10.000 to 15.000 feet
of lumber .all of which meet with a
ready sale, giving employment to 11
There are two boat houses, one
owned by Palo Bros., giving employ
ment to five men, and one owned by
Wilson Bros., giving employment to
12 men. Wilson Bros, have built 4
fishing boats since last fall and are
building a gasoline boat for W. T.
Chutter of Seattle. The men em
ployed are experienced boat builders
and the work turned out Is first-class
and meets with a ready sale. Palo
Bros, have built Zi new fishing boat-
this year. There are two blacksmitn
shos, four cigar stores and many other
Industries, but no saloons. The peo
ple of Uniontown are opposed to the
existence of saloons and they took ad
vantage of the) local option law to
close them up. They are d.-termlned
to raise their children without having
to counteract the degrading Influences
of saloons. They are unanimously op
posed to gambling and appreciate th
efforts of the county officials In clos
ing it up In Astoria, and make no hesi
tancy in saying that they will remm
ber their friends In the coming elec
Hanulla Bros, have erected a four-
story hotel 'and lodging house at a
cos: of $6000, facing the river on Tay
lor avenue and is modern in every de
tail. There are SO rooms in the house
all furnished and occupied mostly by
laboring men and fishermen. During
the past five months. 23 new houses
have be n erected and fully as many
more are In contemplation. Since last
fall over 50 new buildings have been
built In this end of the city. The peo
ple have a large hall, built by tn
t?mperanec socie.y, a large new
church which Is crowded eveiy Sun
day, and one of the finest school build
ings in the city, situated on a high
emtn.tice overlooking the Columbia
river. So fast has the population In
creased that the board of school di
rectors are compelled to fit up two
more rooms. They will also improve
the grounds and make other needed
improvements. The Kite for the school
houes was donated to the dlstilct tor
the benefit of the resides of Unton-
own by the Taylor heirs.
Many of the residents of Uniontown
holo in greatful rememberance Col
James Taylor whos kindness and li
berality permitted them to acquire
homes, the lots being sold at low price
and on easy terms, and many times
rented to men for $1 a month. Th'
name Uniontown was given to this
section of the city by the plat of a
town site by A. V. Allen Joining the
Taylor prope:ty on the east, but this
name ought to be eliminated and th
place designated as Taylor's Astoria
as a perpetuation or tne man wno
made It possible for the industrious
people to acquire homes and make th"
west end one of the most prosperous
sections of the city. If the newspapers
of the city In referlng to this locality
will call It "Taylor's Astoria," will be
known and designated as such by
