that N. P. Anderson, one of the best
known and most respected farmers of
that live community,' while going
home after d.vk, from the town, lost
his footing at a point In the rood
where It overhangs the ilongh and

Bridge Waa Down
Contractor W. A. Goodin, who
started out with a four-horse team
yesterday morning for the Bain mills
near Gearbvt, had to" turn back after
going about half way. While going
along "Ihe" LcwTs'and Clark near the
ifudd place one of the small bridges
there was found to be down, and
there was no way to get across. Mr.
Goodin therefore turned back and
came Into the city, but immediately
started out again by another direc
tion. He will go by way of OIney
and Tucker Creek, and while it is a
very roundabout means of getting to
Gearhart he hopes to win through.
Mr. Goodin has taken the contract of
placing spur track in at the Bain
mills., '. ' " , "
Debate In Few Days
Superintendent of Schools Clark
stated last evening that the time for
the debate between the Astoria and
Tillamook high schools has jtot yet
been definitely settled, but will prob
ably be the middle of this week. The
Astoria theatre has been secured for
the contest, ai(d much Interest is be
ing manifested In the matter. The
local debaters, feel that , they are
lightly handicapped by lack of time
for due preparation, but the three lo
cal debaters will endeavor to make up
for this in the next few days. They
are Mary Kelly, Axel Slguardson and
Lawrence Dineen. It is understood
that the Astoria debaters have studied
the subject thoroughly enough but
have not had an opportunity to or
ganize and prepare the finer details
of the very wide subject.

Telephone Rates '
At the regular meeting of the
Chamber of Commerce tomorrow
night at 7:30 o'clock a discussion will
tnke place concerning the advance in
rates which the local telephone com
pnny is seeking to bring out. A
number of the members of the Cham'

and it has been decided that the mat

meeting of the organisation. , Mayor
Smith, City Attorney Abcrcrombie
and Manager Brunold of the tele
phone company have been invited to
be present to participate. A showing
will be made how the Import and ex
port business that was formerly done
from the Columbia river is now be?
ing most largely done through Puget
Sound. This Is because of the studied
plans of Portland people to prevent
the water over tile bar at the mouth
of the river being deepened any more
rapidly than in the channel all the
way up Jo Portland. The state good
roads' association has asked the
Chamber to endorse the bill now be

for financing good roads and this
matter is also to come up for consid
He Has The Runners
Clatsop's genial assessor, T. S.
Cornelius, has very definite interest in
the present snowfall and may get
even with the weather for the trick it
lately played on him. When the big
snow was here, Mr. Cornelius Invar
iably comes into the city from the
Young's River country each day, in
his buggy, and he stuck to the wheels
until his friends chaffed him into get
ting a set of runners for the rig. This
he finally did, and the very night he
made the purchase and took them
home, the thaw set In; but next morn
ing he saw enough snow in patched
on the road to hearten him up some,
and he took off the wheels and got
the rig on the runners. When he got
a mile from home the snow had disap
peared entirely and when he struck
the court house he was leading the
horse out of sheer sympathy, and the
"boys" did not do a thing to him.
Ilis little daughter, who had started
with him, forsook him on the road,
as it was too slow and laborious for
her, and besides, she had some eggs
which she desired to get rid of before
the market fell. If the present spell
keeps up, he may get square with the
situation. 1 ' 1 1
Business Administration ..
Councflman Leinenweber, who re
turned to the city from Salem to re
main over Sunday, said yesterday that
upon his appointment as chairman of
the committee on fire and water of
the common council, he called the
committee together and it was ar
ranged that nothing should be done
except with the full knowledge and
approval of a majority of the commit
tee. That Is, the one-man system is
to be done away with, and it waa the
chairman, Mr. Leinenweber, who was
the one to insist on this. The other
members of this important committee
are Messrs. Wilson and Stangeland.
It was also arranged that on the Sat
urday preceding the fixst meeting of
each month the committee ahall meet
and talk over all matters pertaining to
the fire and water departments. All
bills and all requisitions must be be
fore the committee by this time, and
otherwise they will not be reported
on by the committee for that meeting.
The committee notified Chief Foster
of the fire department of its new and
business like plans. While this com
mittee is starting out with a big
handicap facing it, due to the fact
that the fire department spent over
$5000 beyond its appropriations last
year, nevertheless rt is hoped by
economy and strict business methods
to come out at the end of the year in
fairly good shape.

PARTY 8TANDS READY TO PUT
UP $75,000 HOUSE IF AS
TORIA SHOWS INTEREST.
A well known and responsible gen
tleman who makes Astoria with
regular frequency, but whose name is
withheld at his special request until a
bit later, wat in the city yesterday,
and paid the office of the Morning
Astorian s pleasant call, during which
he made the deliberate statement that
"Astoria might have a first-class ho
tel at an early day if she chose to
take a hand in the negotiations,"
Asked to be a little more explicit,
this gentleman went on to say that
he had been directed by a monied
friends, who waa conversant with the
real need for a first-class, modern ho
tel in this city, to make some inquiries
a to the humor of this people toward
a project of the aort; to ascertain if
they were disposed to carry a rea
sonable per centage of the stock in an
enterprise of the sort, and about bow
much they would stand for In a deal
involving, say, $75,000, and report his
conclusions when they met again.
To this end he had talks with sev
eral leading people yesterday and
found all of them amenable to the
proposition, the substance of bis in
ferences in the matter being that if
these people would take over $25,000
of $30,000 of the stock, the deal might
be readily consumated; and that if it
was ever started by his friend, the
people of Astoria might bank on the
certainty of the project going through
with commendable celerity and in the
completest fashion such a sum should
guarantee. This gentleman intends to
pursue the matter further and has im
plicit, faith in the. business-like out
come of the venture, as well as in
his friend's object and ability to
launch and perfect the enterprise, and
more will be heard of it shortly. The
constant delay and apparent indiffer
ence of ,. the . Weinhard people are
largely at the bottom of this man's
inquiries and his friends interest in
the new proposition.
' From one of these sources Astoria
should receive some assurance very
shortly, and of a decisive sort

MILITARY DRAMA COMING.
"The Lieutenant and the Cowboy,"
the new western military drama,
which comes to the Astoria Theatre
next Sunday night, should not be con
founded with the ordinary clap-trap
melo-drama, for this is a play of
sterling worth and is presented by
an extremely capable company. No
better play can possibly be offered to
Astoria, theatre-goers this season, for
the simple reason that nothing super
ior has been written. "The Lieuten
ant and the Cowboy" is a tense, heart
thrilling drama, but so sanely blended
that the complete story clings in
one's mind long after the performers
are forgotten. It is by no means a
"gun" play, but two shots being fired
during the four acts, and neither of
them in view of the audience. It is,
on the cotrary. strictly high-grade
production well worth the attention
of the most critical theatre-goers.

NEW YORK,. Jan. 23.-"Woman's

has been tried, Idaho, Colorado, Utah,
and Wyoming," declared President
Wood in an address before the Natioi-
al League for the civic education of
women, here last night.
"Based nuon my personal observa
tions of the workings of equal suff
rage in the four states where it exists,
its results indicate the liability of the
'corrupt political machine to induce
the female voters rather than any
ability on the part of the women to
purify politics." ' ,

Just What You Have
Have you been having trouble to get a butter that you could depend
upon always being good? "FERNDALE" is a brand that yem can reb
upon at all seasons of the year and every day in the year. '
The reasons for this are: in the first place we use nothing but the very
best quality of cream, no two. or three weeks old cream in our goods, then
it is made up in a scientific manner by one of the best butter-makers in
the world, a man who is not only a graduate of 'he best dairy school in the
United, States but one who has had over 20 years of experience in butter
making. Then, too, our butter is clean, from the time the cows are
milked until it is made into butter and packed in our dirt proof cases, we
watch every stage of the handling and making in the most careful manner.
Now which kind of butter had you rather use, the kind that is made
of any kind of cream that can be bought, in rather an indifferent way by a
butter-maker that does not understand the hygienic principals of butter
making? Or would you rather have a butter that you know is right from
start to finish? Remember "FERNDALE" costs no more than the otJier
kind. Talk it over with your Grocer and see what he says about it.
