PORT OF COLUMBIA SCHEME CORED

Astoria, Jan. 26. Special. A epec
ial meeting of the city council has" been
called to consider a bill introduced
into the senate on the 11th by Mr. Wil
lis. This bill is entitled. "A bill to es
tablish and incorporate the Port of Col
umbia, and to provide or the improve
ment of the Columbia river in and ad
joining said port, and to provide a rail
way or canal and locks at and around
turn water and the dalles in said Colum
Never was a more barefaced attempt
made by a representat've of any place to
foist it into prominence at the expense
of other localities, than the real . object
that lies under the surface of this bill.
The document proposes that eight coun
ties of the state shall compose the "Port
of Columbia." Thev aie Clatsop, Col
umbia, Multnomah, Wasco, Sherman,
Gilliam, Morrow and Umatilla. Then,
each county may send to the corporation
one representative, hairing Multnomah,
which is responsible for eight, giving
that enterprising burgh a majority of
one vote over all the other counties put
together. The "cabilistic figures" eight
to seven. . -
The combination is given power in the
bill to issue bonds to the amount of 3,
000,000, and to state how and in what
localities any improvements in the river
shall be made ; to tax all property bor
dering on the river, if necessary ;in
short, to have full and complete control,
so far as can be granted by the state,, of
the whole Columbia river, from The
Dalles to the ocean. And Portland, with
a majority voice in the corporation, will
have the whole waterway between two
of her fingers. It is an elegant idea
for Portland. The brazen effrontery of
the proposition is so apparent that it is
a wonder how its originators could have
been so lacking in their usual cunning
as to have sprung such a raw scheme on
the assembly. The council formulated
and dispatch to our representatives in
Salem ; an earnest protest against the

Seattle, Jan. 26. Special. It is
now settled that the Farmer's Alliance
of Eastern Washington will construct a
grain elevator at this port. It is looked
forward to by the farmers of the eastern
portion" of the slate as being one of the
most advantageous things to them in re
alizing (he greatest price for their wheat.
The chamber of icmmerce appointed
a committee last night to make prepara

Some new developemems have ap
peared in the matter of the eslate of H.
L. Yesler, it having been reported, that
three half-breeds would appear in court
and claim a share of his estate. Mr.
Yesler was one of the earliest settlers of
the State of' Washington and one of the
wealthiest citizens of Seattle. ' A special
administrator has been appointed to
take charge of his eslate for the present.
The employees of the Oregon Improve
ment company have made a etrike for

rather a. bad condition. It is thought,
however, that the strike, which is parti

be amicably adjusted.

AN Ol'AL-ONVX QUARRY.
A. Discovery Made Near 1'omcroy, Is
Claimed to be "valuable.
Recently Mr. J. S. Thomas arrived
in Portland from Pomeroy, Wash.,
having with him a slab of opal
onyx six feet in length and weighing
about 400 pounds. The slab was taken
from a quarry recently discovered near
that place, and he intends to have it
polished in Portland. The quarry Is
situated about 15 miles from Pomeroy.
Small pieces of the stuff have been pick
ed up in the neighborhood from time to
time during the past six years, but no
one had any idea of their .' value until
recently, when specimens were sent to
the Smithsonian Institution in Wash
ington, and several other no'ed scientific
institutions. All opinions agreed- that
the stone is true opa,-onyx and the first
of the kind ever discovered on the con
tinent. A number of well-known-mineralogists
and government experts
have visited the district, and a'l give it
as their opinion that the entire count. y
for some distance around is underlaid
with the onyx. The mineral was formed
by a deposit in old lake bot.oms during
one period of the earth's formation, and
is therefore found in horizontal layers.
In the present instance the material is
found in detached masses, of all colors
and sizes, along the foot of a steep hill.
Tnese pieces have been found scattered
along for a distance of a mille, but thus
far no distinct ledge has been discovered.
The onyx admits of a very high polish
and is valued according to its color and
markings. It is very hard and brittle,
and must be cut and polished with
diamond dust, and by an experienced
hand. A very peculiar method must be
employed in mining the onyx. The size
of the piece wanted is first marked out;
then little holes are bored all around the
edges with a diamond pointed drill. In
these holes are driven little pieces .of
wood, over which water is poured;: The
expansion of the wood ciacks the stone
and then it is easily detached. The
chunks are afterwards sawed into slabs
by means of copper saws, tempered with
a paste made of diamond dust. Some
of the pieces are very finely marked, and
if properlycut and polished would make
beautiful settings for rings and breast
pins. The Pomeroy Opal-Onyx com
pany, have received a requisition from
George P. Merrill, curator of geology in
the national museum of the Smith
sonian Institution, for specimens of
onyx. The company also filled an order
from the Un'on Pacific lailroad company
at Omaha for 1C0 pounds of onyx.. It
will be another great laurel added to the
already extensive list of valuable stores
deposited in the Inland Empire, when
we shall ship American opal-onyx to
Walla Walla statesman. The "politi
cal progress" of P. B. Johnson may be
likened to the old rustier who started
out in search of a stock ranee with two
steers hitched to his wagon, a pewter
eyed cay use and a yellow dog. After
traveling three months he bad two men
hired, 17 head of American horses and 75
head of cattle. And he called it the

Tacoma Ledger. While John B.Allen
is ot Olympia trying to compel his re
election to the senate, where, he has so
far rendered the ' staie no appreciable
service, the Oregon senators are at the:r
posts securing everything their state
wants. Saturday they secured an ap
propriation of $250,000 for a overnment
building at Portland and an enlargement
of the limit of cost to $1,000,000. This is
more than Allen and Squire have se
cured for Washington for all purposes
since thev have-been in the senate.
