Fine Piece of Work. -Messrs. R, ti.
Klvers, the lessor of the new opera
house, and Karle Fisher, have jointly
produced wry handsome marble

With a view of authenticating the re
cent Portland despatch In relation to
the proposed extension of the Astoria k
Columbia River Railroad from Seaside
to Tillamook City, a reporter of the
Mornintr Aatorlan yesterday, railed upon
General Manager O.-W. Tallwt, of that
road, at his office In this city, and eskel
for as full a statement as was In his
power to give, in order that all ambigui
ties and misconceptions might be laid
aside and the people of this city and sec

With ready courtesy Mr. Talbot com
plied with a declaration to the follow
"As a newspaper man you will under
stand what I mean when I say that it
frequently happens that the people and
the paper of a given section are dis
posed to make much more of a mooted
railway project than is contemplated at
headquarters, from a desire to make the
most of something that has a large
meaning for the comr"nlty interested:
and while this has been the rase In this
Instance, to a certain extent, there has
not been an unduly wide departure from
the fact, as might have occurred; and
I am glad to be able to Inforss the peo

Ie determined. The lines to be covered
embrace a course along the coast, and
another in the interior, and I may say
that if an operative grade, feasible in
all the details demanded in behalf of
such a project is attained to, there can
be no reason for doubt ins that the ex
tension will follow immediately and the
work pushed to the earliest possible con
clusion. In default of such favorable
returns from the field, it is needless to
ay that the construction will be aban
doned; and as to whether the probabil
ities lie with either conclusion suggest

can sny, there is nothing to disparage
the idea of obtaining a serviceable route

Asked about the significance of the
grade-stakes dotting the country imme
diately south of Seaside, Mr. Talbot said
the company wag in need of additional
terminal facilities at Seaside, which
place was growing very perceptibly and
that In this behalf, suburban lines had
been run there in the interest of such
improvements as the company finds it
necessary to install, and that they have
nothing: to do with the larger matter of
the southern survey.
Had Hia Picture Taken. "Squidge,"
Will Hume's ideal little bull-pup has had
his picture taken. . To guard against the
specific and abounding ugliness of the
doir. it was necessary for the photo
graphic artist to secure a piece of two-
inch plate glass and sensitize it, for the
delicate and danscrous transference of
Squidge's protruberant little mug, with
safety to the plate, and it was success
fullv accomplished much to his owner's
satisfaction, Squidge was, from the look
on his expressive face, perfectly indif
ferent to the whole proceeding.
Another Slip. The Cnllender Naviga

Champion Gosse Here. Edward O.
Gosse the amateur champion single
sculler of the Northwest, was la the
city yesterday, having come up from
Seaside to confer with the regatta com
mittee about his appearance here in the
forthcoming water festival He called
at the Aatorlan office for a few minutes,
and while here made the specific an
nouncement that Al Pape had treated
him with silence and indifference, despite
the fact that he, Gosse, had sent him
four separate " and distinct challenges
since April last, to-wit: In March last,
for the San Diego contest on June 1st,
for the trophy put up by the Coronado
Hotel t Beach Company; for the same
event; In May, through the columns of
the Portland Telegram; last month,
through the same columns, for the As
toria regatta season; and by telegraphic
despatch, on Friday last, for the Astoria
event, or on any other course that
Pape might elect. To none of these open
challenges has the challenged man
deigned to reply. Mr. Gosse is still
willing to meet and race him at any
point on the coast, not later than No
vember 1st. It is conclusively settled
that Mr. Gosse will appear in the re
gatta, in friendly contest with several
expert oarsmen from Portland, and It is
needless to aoy will make a fine and in
All Ate Watermelon. The entire force
of the Morning Astorian was yesterday
treated to a feast in the shape of a
huge watermelon, thoughtfully contri
buted by Ross, Higgins & Company.
To ay that the melon was appreciated,
would be stating it far too lightly. It
reminded the editor of the time he bad
charge of a newspaper in the wilds of
Nebraska, and the offer of a years
subscription, to the paper which he made
to the farmer who should bring the larg
est melon. Early in the season large
and luscious products of the vine began
to come into the office for exhibition
and weighing. As the Beason advanced.
the contributions became larger, and the
keener in what farmers could raise the
largest watermelon. It was a poor day
when less than 60 melons arrived at
the office for judgment, and finally an
extra man had to be hired to attend to
the weighing part. It was seldom that
farmer would keep his melon, and by
this means, the force all grew fat on the
best melons that the best watermelon
country in the world could produce. The
largest melon which was brought to
the office, weighed 83 pounds and meas
ured three feet in thickness.
Another Citiien. A nine-pound baby
son was bom to Mrs. E. B. Gunzler
yesterday, in this city, at the home of
her sister,, Mrs. John Frye, on Jerome
avenue. Mother and child are doing
Fully Naturalized. Two natives of
Sweden yesterday completed the legal

by taking out full naturalization papers,
before County Clerk Clinton; their
