A well known business man of As
toria yesterday suggested that "it
was high time Axtoria was getting in
line for a genuine celebration of the
4th of July, before all the minor
towns about the coast country set up
their individual claims and allure
ment in that behalf," Thil idea was
projected on the assumption that the
order cancelling the regatta will be
adhered to.
Busiest Place In City
The Astoria Iron-Works is about
the busiest place in the city these
days, as there arc 42 men now at
work there Idling orders of all kind

The force is, for the most part, en

Troyer I'ox gas engines, which are in
great demand this season. All the

constant use all the time.

advantage will do well to see Chair

Why la Thia Thus?
Yesterday's Oregouian (newspa
per) contains the following item of
news: "Assistant General Passenger
Agent Jenkins, of the Spokane, Port-
and & Seattle Railway, is issuing a
new passenger tariff covering the
stations reached .by the North Bank
Road. Commutation rates will be
put in from Vancouver to points as
far east as Bingen. These books will
be on sale within a short time.
Which reads to the ordinary Astorian
as though the company was playing
favorites with its new stations and
patrons to the disparagement of its
older friends down this way. It was
only last spring that the commuta
tion tickets between this city and
Seaside were called off and the com
pany went out of the special-rate
business on this end of the line al
together, only to resume it, or inau
gurate it, at the other end. Such is
life, when a railroad gets in the habit
of "throwing it in" to a city or town
that does not scrap it.
To the Astoria Public.
At our regular meeting of this date
(May 27th), it was the universal ex

should hold this day sacred.

No Reduced Rates
The Astoria & Columbia River
Railroad Company will issue no re
duced rates for the Rose Festival at
Portland this year. It is claimed tha
the "two-cent fare now in force on
that line, brings the cost of travel
hence to the metropolis, on a level
with all other roads who are sharing
"three cents" per mile and make a
reduction of one-third in their normal
rates. R. H. Jenkins, A. G. F. & P

armor is 12 inches thick, and thor
oughly face-hardened by the Krupp
process. Another point upon the
naval constructors expect to be in
formed by the shooting at the turret
is the effect upon the turning me
chanism upon that great mass of
steel and the various electrical and
other devices inside of a low of the
12-inch shot on the outside. Much of
this mechanism is fastened to the
wall of the tourret by belts and other
means and it is apprehended that a
smashing shot delivered outside the
turret wall and opposite one of these
instruments will Send that apparatus
flying across the turret, putting that
part of out of action.
The experimenters will also test a
new design of miiltary mast which
has been erected on the stern of the
Florida. The mast has a base of 24
feet in diameter, tapering to. the base
of a 12-foot platform at the top. The
purpose of the mast is to furnish aa
observation point for officers. The
construction of these masts of steel is
regarded as defective. Should this
steel be puntured by a shell and the
shell exolode on the inside of the
tona is
in the bis scheme of supply. Leander
Lebeck is also among the bidders for
a large section of the pilednving es
sential to the project.
Fine Fire Quarters i
It would be a hard matter to find
in all the State of Oregon, any com
munitv that can honestly boast a
nicer, cosier, and better kept set of
fire building than Astoria owns and
maintains. From the handsome head
quarters on Commercial street, all
down the line through the three other
stations, every house and room is in
perfect order and clean and fresh as a
rigidly kept sanitarium. The boys
have all taken abundant interest in
the work, under the suggestions of
