The railroad news of the past 48 hour
is pregnant with good for Astoria: Mr.
Harriman is about to avail himself of
the option he has long held on the As
toria A. Columbia River railroad, and
which expires next month, at a price ap
proximating $40,000 per mile, or $4,000,
000 for the line. This is a shrewd hedge
gainst the encroachments of Hill and
the Santa Fe people, and if it shall re
suit as anticipated, the surveys and esti
mates long ago made for dockage fa
cilities at Young's Bay may prove some
thing more than the "stuff that dreams
are made of." One possible and early
faror that should fall to Astoria is the
putting of this port on a basis with Se
attle and Taeouia as to "common point'
rates on wheat and lumber, a concession
that means much and will mean more
very shortly. The differential now
standing against Astoria as between
Portland and the Sound ports named is
a burden, that once lifted, will be lifted
for all time, and if this should prove the
onliy immediate benefit accruing from
the Harriman purchase of the "A. & C,
this city can afford to rejoice in the
f NAVAL FAILURE
It is unpleasant news which comes
from Washington to the effect that the
latest battleship aunched, to wit, the
Mississippi, is not up to date, but be
long to a class that has become obso
let. The ship was built at Cramps'
yard, but the blame for her alleged de
ficiency in modern requirements is laid
at the door of congress, which, it is said,
refused to listen to the protests of the
nary department. The Mississippi's sis
ter ship, the Idaho, which is still on the
ways, is also condemned by the experts,
both, it is declared, being deficient in
speed and not equal to the Connecticut
and the Maine, which represent the ad
vanced type of battleship.
The demand of the naval powers to
day is for ships of larger tonnage and
greater speed, and in these respects the
Mississippi and the Idaho are said to fall
behind the other two named. Speed and
maneuvering ability are considered in
dispensible requisites of a modern bat
tleship in these days of long-range guns,
those qualities pivinjj their commanders
practically the choice of position in a
combat. Seventeen knots is said to be
tiit best speed the Mi-iijipi and the
Idaho can develop.
All this, if true, would seem to point
to the advisability of the national legis
lative body listening to advice from ex
perts, who know what it needed fJil.A 4
and w, respected, in the greatly larger
sense, and so are the people responsible
for it, and those that have its enforce
ment in hand.

Next summer Astoria should lie able
"to point with pride" to her new, mod
ern and beautiful hotel. If she is not,
it will be her fault, and hers alone.
For city that uses as much wood
for its highways a does Astoria, her
street and sidewalk are in splendid
condition, with a few exceptions and the
difference between the repaired and un
repaired will not be long in announcing
itself to the owner of the latter and
suggesting what ought to he done,
It is to be hoped the light-house de
partment of the government will use ex
pedition, with abundant success, in filiat
ing the two vessels recently lot, one by
storm, the other by- collision, the bar
light-ship and the tender Manzanita,
neither of which can be spared from
this port with any comfort or safety.
There is an ominous silence prevalent
in regard to that new Xchalem rail
road. Can it be possible the bottom has
fallen out so quickly! Such ventures
usually exhaust newspaper space and
comment before they lapse to memories.
So Uncle Sam, through his capable

The judicial ermine seems to com

it is arrayed against gambling, for gam
