Writing, upon the presumption that

Harvest Queen and the derelict
steamer Minnie Kelton, on Saturday
night this paper announced that the
tow was on its way to Portland, but
it appears this did not transpire. The
Queen made a good haul on the
stranded vessel and moved her from
s mud bottom to a clean and sandy
shallow near by, but did not succeed
in getting her off; for the more she
was hauled toward deep channel
water the more her stern sank, and
it was deemed inexpedient to do any
further work at this time. It is said,
now, that Captain Genereaux thinks
it will be necessary to erect a coffer
dam around the elton, line it, and
pump out the water in and around
her, in order to accurately ascertain
the damage she has sustained; but
this is mere guess-work and is yet to

Is such that the heat is thrown directly upward against the kettle
or pan upon the stove top, without affecting: the atmosphere of
the room to an appreciable degree.
You can at once see the advantage of this stove over a great

ideal summer stove.

Captain George Pope and wife were
visiting friends in this city yestcryay:
thev were crcatlv surprised at the
progress made here since their last
visit six years ago. Captain Pope is
a pioneer snip masier ami marine
surveyor of Oregon, having com
manded one of the Hawaiian packets
in the early 70s; afterwards serving
Lloyd's Register of British and for
eign shipping as ship and engineer
surveyor for Oregon and Washing
ton, retiring from the service at the
;ige of 62. six years ago. The cap
tain carries his o years well; naie
and hearty, he looks the typical ship
master still, and one would imagine
him readv to take command of either
sailer around Cape Horn or an
ocean liner across me racmc ai a
few hours' notice. However said the
captain when questioned on tins
point, "I have no desire to again
cross out over the Columbia bar. i
have not been on a ship's deck nor in
an engine room for the past seven
years. 1 think I am entitled to a
rest. Still I should like to see the
bar improved so that the next gen
eration may see vessels ot w teci
draft and over cross out of Astoria;
but it will never be done with the
present jetty work. 1 have known
the bar for SO years, and practically
the depth has net increased to any
appreciable extent. I am of the opin
ion that, at no distant date, the United
States engineers will grasp the prob
lem. If a breakwater could be created
outside, 20 fathoms line of sounding
in the shape of a diamond and of suf
ficient length, north and south, to pre
vent the tremendous 7000-mile fetch
blows, that are now hammering on
the bar, from rolling in the sand, then
the volume of water debouching every
24 hours from our river would cut
the bar away in one month, entirely.
You would then have a north and a
south channel; no lightship would
then be needed and you would be on
a parity with Puget Sound as a har
bor of refuge. You would also be able
to have the entire Atlantic squad
ron of battleships in your harbor and
which no prudent administration un
der present conditions, is permitted
to allow now."

Statement to Voters.
The office of County Coroner is not
a political but a judiciary ottice as
much so as the Circuit Judge or Jus
tice of the Peace. In aspiring to that
office I would just as soon ask a Re
publican, as a Democrat, Socialist or
nonpartisan for his support, as the
office should be and during my in
cumbency always has been conducted
without regard to politics.
I have resided in Clatsop County
for 34 years, my whole interests are
here, and I expect to remain here.
I have tried to conduct the office
with impartiality and fairness and
with a due regard to the interest of
the taxpayers. The annual appropria
tions of the County Court for the
Coroner's office which includes, physi
cians, jurors ana witness lees ana
other necessary expenses such as
boat hire have been $600.00 and the
actual expense has often been much
below this figure. I have always
deemed it an honor to be Coroner and
am willing to submit the matter of
my re-election to the voters on my
record during my long tenure in the
office. W. C. A. POHL.

Among the many important mat
ters touched upon in Secretary
Whyte's report, were the following:
Hood River County.
We have received a letter from the
Hood River Commercial Club signed
by A. A. Jaync, president of that or
ganization; P. S. Davidson, secretary;
K. O. Blanchar, Charles Hall, Tru

"We wish to call your attention
briefly to the initiative bill for the
creation of Hood River County.
"The assessed valuation in the pro
posed Hood River County for 1907
was $2,762,250, the area is about 500
square miles' and the population
"This will leave in Wasco County
an assessed valuation of $5,475,720,
and area of about 1646 square miles
and a population of about 11,500, thus
leaving it among the largest and
strongest counties in the State.
"The tax levy in Wasco County for
1907 is 14 mills, which would raise in
the proposed Hood River County $38,
671.50 which would be ample to pay
the expenses of operating the new
County and leave a substantial bal
ance. "Our reason for bringing the mat
ter before the people by the initiative,
is that under the constitution as
amended, counties can only be creat
ed by the legislature by a general
law, and we believe the interests of
this community would suffer greatly

til such a measure could be passed by

carried that the matter be placed be

was discussed, for a length of time,
but nothing of importance was decid
ed on Mr. 1". h. Evans the promoter,
was expected to attend the meeting

In connection to the promotion
bill, a motion was made and carried
to place same before a judiciary com

one suggested that the Chamber of
Commerce meetings hereafter be held
in the Odd Fellows' hall, as the
Chamber of Commerce rooms' were
sometimes overcrowded, but after con-1

not to, and hereafter the meeting
will always be held as usual in the
Chamber of Commerce rooms.
