been signalized during the past week by

a most terrible tragedy., the advent of

according to dispatches, may be-accompanied
by an attempted Invasion from

Prospect of Another Railroad
Enlivens Interest in City
and Farm Property Near
Pacific Shore.
(Special h The Journal.)
Astoria, Or., Aug 10 With the lm
mediate prospect of another railroad
extending from Astoria, south along the
ocean front to below Seaside., and south
east to the Tillamook country, Clatsop
county Is apparently On the eve of a
development that will far exceed tn
magnitude that which followed the an
nouncement or tlift doming of theT'As
toria and Columbia River Railroad in
the late '90's. - This county, naturally
one of the richest sections of Oregon, In
resources capable of easy development,
has long been one of the most back
ward counties In the state, and Its back
wardness and latk of progress has been
ascribed chiefly to the fact that It is
a one-railroad .community.
Corps of surveyors have been In the
field, south of this city, for the past
trttsrsTsnff-rtittrTr-w imtnnrthgt TBsy
nre surveying for a prospective line, it
has been impossible to ascertain, who,
or. what system - was responsible tot
their activity, although It was generally
believed U wae a Southern Paolflo move.
The line as aurveyed will parallel the
beach. Jine of the Hill system, but will
run closer to the ocean, passing through
Gonrhart and Seaside. As to the di
rection of the Una beyond Seaside no
thing definite is known, but it is be
lieved that It will strike southeast for
tho rich Nehalem valley.
The possibilities of the development
of this county as the result of the com
ing of another railroad are enormous.
The value of Clatsop Reach as a sum
mer playground for the entire Pacific
northwest Is Just beginning to be ap
preciated. There has been more de
velopment on this beach during the past
two or three years than during the
whole quarter of a century prior to threa
years ago.
But the-blgAvelopment that will
coma with the building of a railroad,
north and south, across the county, will
ho the opening up of the Immense tracts
of fertile coastal plain and valley lands
extending from Young's Hay south to
Tillamook. The projected road will run
through as rich an agricultural terri
tory as can be found In Oregon and will
develop one of the finest dairying sec
tions In the western part of the state.
Whether Clatsop county reapa the
full benefit of having another railroad,
deponda to a large extent upon the en
erprls trfthe city of Astoria.
