Astoria Awaiens to Arouse Resentment to a Fraud. ' ef PORT OF COLUMBIA SCHEME CORED it is a Very Elegant Idea for Portlands Calculation 8 to 7. LET VS REASON TOGETHER OVER IT t Clatsop, Colantbia and Wasco He Spoken What Hare Gilliam, Hot- - row, et. al., to say? 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 bia river." 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 shameful scheme. OCR SISTER STATE. A Farmers Shipping; Movement- The C. B. & Q. at Seattle. 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 tion in detail for the celebration which Will take place in this city over the com pletion of the Great Northern railway line to salt water. The C. B. & Q. Railway are now in vestigating the shore preparatory to completing their line to the Pacific coast, and have already secured terminal faculties' here. '. . . . A 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 higher wages, leaving the company-in rather a. bad condition. It is thought, however, that the strike, which is parti cipated in by nearly all employes will be amicably adjusted. Long Island Hotel Borncd. Brooklyn, N. Y., Jan. 25.

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 order. Plebiter's ''Progression.' 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 natural 'nc.euse. KucklraM Arnica Salve.

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. Callioinla Earthquake.

In the senate, the committee on naval aflairs reported an amendment to the naval appropria tion bill authorizing a contract for the construction of one battle-ship of 900 tons, two armored coast-defense vessels, ten gunboats of 800 to 1,000 tons, and eight first-class torpedo-'boats.

The captain of the steamer Alsatia reports that he passed the Norwegian bark Star of India, which was dismantled, with no signs of life on board. Evidently she had passed through a buiricane, and from' all ap pearances must have been wrecked early in December. She had a crew of 37 men, all of wjiom were supposed to be lost. . .
