More of Promije Than Any Pro
ject Now Discussed Feasible,
Easy and Profitable.
In a quest for something cheerful in
relation to Astoru'- near, or even re
mote future, a reporter of this paptt
yesterday called upon a prominent citi
zen who has given year of time and
thousands of dolluis to the various
schemes that have all, more, or leas,
materially contributed to her progre,
and asked him, point-blank, to say whit
it was the city needed more than any
thing else, to promote its welfare and
accelerate its commence; the answer
was prompt and derisive. Kaid he:
We must have a railway, steam, or
electric, into this city, direct from the
Xehalem country. Ye should build it
on our ow-n initiative, if we can find
out-ide capital ready for such invest
ment; and waste no time in paltry cal
culation about it. It is absolutely es
sential and cannot help but be wholly
satisfactory as a money-earner for its
promoters, as well as a constant and
geneiou- feeder for the local activities
''There are immense resources in that
section that aix? actually suffering for
an open and quick market; there is
lumber in inconceivable quantities;
dairy products of the finest qualities
in extraordinary abundance; and stone
quarries that have never been phased
by drill and hammer, and fisheries that
are as immense as they are various:
thene is population enough along the
line to warrant ample returns upon the
investment alone, and the fact that
these would all expand immeasurably,
upon the mere fact of the road being
available, puts the issue very squarely
before us for consideration and achieve
ment. "I am satisfied that a line could be
constructed around Tillamook Head and
over Xecarnie Point, with, not to ex
ceed an elevation of 100 fe t, or a tun
nel not longer than 200 feet, and the
whole system, on either side of these
points, would be upon a sea-level and
could be built quickly and upon a safe
"Of course, wo can sit still for year
to come, and wait for these things to
conic to us; they may come, too, but ii
is not is though wo turned to and did
it ourselves; showimr the world that we
know our own good things and how -o
make the most of them. That is what
counts tor a community in the scmi-i-olated
condition that Astoria is in.

into practical realities and make the
world around us feel that we are alive,
that we mean business, and do it, anl

and would bless the enterprise that

"Xo matter who docs this thing (and
you need not doubt it will lie done soon
by someone) there is one prime neces
sity that must be provided for. and that
fa, that the rates, passenger and freight

prohibitive nor burdensome; they must

for Astoria. I have told you. Build a
