MEMORIAL TO CONGRESS
Urgent Need of a Meeting of AU Citi

Notable Places and Mouments Good
Work Now Afoot.
Tbe City of Astoria and the County
of Clatsop art peculiarly rich "in point
nJ place, of pkndi4 Stt. Victory
indeed, tho recent magnificent Lewi A
"tWk exposition was born ia "this
county one hundred years ago; besides
many other and lesser phase of his
torical interest hare inherent adapta
. two to these fields, and it behoove
every citizen of the city and county to
'jealously guard and render permanent
the particular and prk-eW memento
of the past.
The Oregon Historical Society, with
headquarter at Portland, has taken
Try definite part in helping to preserve
torn of the most valuable of these local
maters, and its membership here num
bers about fifteen people, a sufficient
nucleus, if kept in constant touch with
the important duties devolving upon
them, to make permanent and con
spicuous, the notable place and monu
ment indigenous to the soil.
The Astoria contingent might well
get together and stay together in fairly
constant attendance upon these issuee,
and bo in ready touch with the parent
orgaxiation, so as to amplify its pur
poses, not only in a local sense, but in
the broader concerns of the State.
At its last session in Portland, the
Historical Society appointed a special
committee consisting of Judge J. Q. A.
Bowlby, Hon. Jay Tuttle and President
George H. Himea, to draft a memorial
to Congress praying for an appropria
tion of $10,000 for the erection of a
monument upon the site of old Fort
Clatsop, where the society now owns
three acre of land; and it is no more
than just, and right, that every man,
and woman, in thi county, should lena
an eager and aidful hand in the great
project, either in person, or through the
instrumentality of me friend in posi
tion to ait, either in eongre or out
of it, and whether they belong to the
Historical Society or not. It 4s large
matter and ha no limits fixed when it
wines to measure the aid that may be
It is alway well to do thing in a
consecutive way and at seasonable
time, and therefore, there should be
an early meeting of the local member
ship of the society, along with hundred
of other equally interested citizens.
It may be Congress will grant the
aM asked for np-M th contingency
that the State shall do its share in tht
nttcr, and thi but open another ave
nue for the frcUe of local Jnfluene
and good will toward so imperative and
promising a- veuture, and it is the hope
of many that this meeting will be call
ed very soon and that it will be pro
lific el an activity along these hue
that will result In a splendid volume
of success: to which the Astoriaa will
lend its best and timeliest assistance
whenever it may be invoked. Xow Is

After all the good work done by
Manager C H. Callender, of the Cal
ender Navigation Company, in pulling
the Hammond sea-raff off the Young's
Bay spit, it was peculiarly unfortunate
that the bisr nest of log should go
aground again on the spit on tho early
morning tide or yesterday, mere
something singular in it going aground
on a sevenfoot tide and refusing to
budge on on a nine-foot flood, which
was the case.yesterday afternoon when
