THE MORNING ASTORIAN, ASTORIA, OHEGON,
(Continued from Page 4.)
In fact, there has already developed
inducements that will guarantee this
extension. The prospects are very
encouraging. The new hotel for As
toria will 'probable be made of home
products. That matter is now under
consideration. This would require
about one-half million brick. Two
tlier four-story brick buildings for
Astoria, under contemplation have
asked for prices. One contracting
firm has made inquiries for a half
million face brick and common build
ers fur export to another city. Solici
tations are in for sample brick for ex
hibit in Portland, San Francisco and
Oakland. The pure white and buff
brick will make the city famous for
artistic and substantial building ma
terial. The buff brick will compare
favorable with the best of its kind
Honest legitimate dividends will
follow as sure as effects follow causes.
Bank balances will be on the side of
Astoria citizens instead of going to
Other cities for high insurances,
building material, and for aiding
them to commercial supremacy.
It should be understood that the
sample that will be exhibited Monday
High were all made by hand, a crude
process. Machine methods would
easily improve upon them at least 40
to 50 per cent in every way.
It is further proposed that at least
five barrels of clay will be sent to
Bucyrns, Ohio, the largest clay ma
chine factory in the world and under
the supervision of experts thoroughly
tested for adjusting machines and
presses to the clays. From thence
the paving brick samples will be taken
to the Ohio State University where
there is equipment for testing by the
rattling process the durability of the
brick for the ware and tare of busy
traffic. All precautions known will
be resorted to make the industry a
Trained men from California and
from the East will be engaged at once
to insure and hasten the production
of good products to meet the imme
diate demands of the market.
The site selected for the industry
is located in the city limits in the
'Alderbrook addition to Astoria, just
a short distance from the end of the
street car line on the main highway,
an ideal situation for city advantages
and its patronizing influence. Options
have been taken on the site and
immense clay beds in and out of the
A. fine gravity system can.be pro
Tided with comparatively little ex
penditure of money. Every time yon
move a ton of clay it is moving to
ward the market. Railroad and water
transportation facilities can easily be
Electric power will be used in pref
erence to mechanical power for the
operation of the plant. The Electric
Power Company has assured the best
of rates for all electric purposes.
The chief fuel for burning kilns,
however, will doubtless be crude oil.
The external appearance of the plant
will be a handsome one. Immense
electric light signs, with letters, sev
eral feet in length, will be placed on
the top of the main building facing
the railroad and parallel with the riv
er and main highway, and the passing
tourist will be greeted with a view by
night as well as day of the "Astoria
Clay Product Company." It will be
a market success in a lively town.
Anyone doubting the practicability
and usefulness of this clay product in
iridustry for Astoria is kindly invited
to be present at the Chamber of Com
merce meeting, Monday night, April

I THINK YES.
I think that it is the duty of every
citizen to thoroughly post himself on
the qualifications of the candidates
for public office, and along that line
(politics aside). James W. Welch for
representative should receive the un
animous vote of Clatsop county. What

For Governor Hughes for Next Pre
NEW YORK, Governor Hughes
was endorsed as new York's republi
can candidate for president by the
party convention held here today and
the four delegates at large with their
alternates were elected to the nation
al convention and were instructed to
use all honorable means to bring
about his nomination. The four dele
gates at large are: Gen, Woodford:
ex mayor Low: F. R. Ilazzard of
Syracuse and E. ,11. Butler of Buf
falo. The convention was a rcpiti
tion in its distinctive features of the
one in 1888, when Roscoc Conkling
sought vainly not only have the dele
gates at large but the congressional
delegates instructed for general Grant.

committee on resolutions to amend

Hughes and to instruct the delegates
at large to work for him and other de
legates to "Persistently labo for his
nomination until a' nomination is
made." Brackett's action caused a
thousand odd delegates and hundreds
of spectators who filled the galleries
with much excitement. When the de

tension, speaker' Wadsworth moved
