Many other matters of interest have
teen considered in the last year, detailed
statements of which can be found in
I would suggest to my successor that
be make a careful canvass of the mem
bers and select persons for the various
eommittees that will make a thorough
examination of all matters referred to
them and it-port their findings at an
arly date 'without prejudice. Much de
pends on this.
Growth of Astoria.
Has in my judgment been greater dur
ing the past year than that of any other
city in Oregon, taking size into consid
eration. I call your attention to the new
bank building, the hotel until construc
tion and the many new homes through
out the city.
As a general thing our semi-monthly
meetings have been fairly attended dur
ing the past year and we have never
failed to have a good quorum with much
interest manifested. There has been 27
meetings in 1907 a against 15 in 1906,
which in my mind denotes a greater in
terest in the growth of our city.
In my incumbency if there have been
any errors they were of the head, not
the heart. I have attended every meet
ing during the year when in the city. In
laying down the gavel of this my fourth
term as president I do it with thanks to
the members for the courteous treat
ment that I have always received from
.them during my tenure of office. I have
been a member- of this body for over 30
years ahvays working for what I con
ceived to be the best interest of this
community. Hoping that through the
reorganization new blood may flow into
your ranks freely, with wealth and good
will, that you may always have the
wherewith to promote, I am, yours re
spectfully, JAMES W. WELCH.
We are offering the substantial figures
and business balances, found by Manager
J. II. Whyte, and taken from the an
nual report filed by hint last night, and
will supplement this with the other in
teresting data presented by Mr. Whyte,
in tomorrow's issues. The business ele
ment of his report, referred to, is in
substance, as follows:
I took charge of the work of the
Chamber of Commerce beginning with
the month of April and have now been
in office nine months.
The advertising that has so far been
done has constituted the principal work
I have so far conducted.
There has been expended S21C0, as
per the cash book, for buying of adver
tising space, and $fi82 for pamphlets,
most of which have been used. We have
received 7334 letters up to December
31. from most of the countries of the
world including South Africa, Phillipine
Islands, and nearly all of the European
States. These 'inquiries may be divided
Investments, 138; lands, 1297; fac

agents, 321; promoters, 132; wanting
to better condition, 2128; labor, 43(i;
about other subjects, 2779; total, 7334.
I do not lelieve that any considerable
part of tiie present good the Chamber
of Commerce has accomplished for As
toria can be accomplished unless its
advertising is continued. The Promo
tion Committee for the past year has
demonstrated to the people of Astoria
the best system of municipal advertis
ing that has yet been developed any
invariably been asked for these, in a
few instances by trust companies of the
Central and Eastern States.
As for the colonization of lands about
Astoria for agricultural purposes, I 'am
convinced that what is needed is the
formation of a company that v ill clear
oil the stumps, ami indeed a company
of this kind ha been suggested by one
of our leading business men. I believe
that with $20,000 rash capital, this com
pany would be able to clear off thous
ands of acres of stump lands, dike
thousands of acres of tide lands, settle
them up with thrifty people, and make
a dividend on these transactions for the
stockholders. With a very small ex
penditure a donkey engine can be pur-
liased and stump-pulling appliances
that will clear the stumps from 7 acres
of land without moving. The owners
of stump land, mostly timbermen, would
most likely be glad to cooperate in this
The movement that was started dur
ing the latter part of last year for the
killing of an oil and gas well is now
to be taken up with renewed activity,
and with every prospect for success.
While the drilling of an oil and gas well
cannot be considered in the light of an
investment, vet it is so important an

WHAT THE KIDNEYS DO.
Their Unceasing Work Keeps us Strong
All the blood in the body passes
through the kidneys once every three
minutes. The kidJieya filter the blood
They work niglit and day. When healthy
they remove about 500 grains of impure
matter daily, when unhealthy some part
of this impure matter is left in the
blood. This brings on many diseases
and symptoms pain in the back, head
ache, nervousness, hot, dry skin, rheuma
tism, gout, gravel, disorders of the eye
sight and hearing, dizziness, irregular
heart, debility, drowsiness, dropsy, de
posits in the urine, etc. But if you
keep the filters right you will have no
trouble with your kidneys.
Mrs. E. Nettlcbladc, 133 Astor street,
Astoria, Oregon, says: "For a long time
I felt weak, tired and depressed, suffer
