Odd Fellows Z.aHd and Building?
We are pleased to see that the fra
ternity of Odd Fellows in Astoria have
taken steps to secure ground and erect
a hall. The books for subscription to
the stock of the association are now
open at the office of Hon. I. W. Case,
and we understand that the prospects
are favorable to a speedy taking of
stock sufficient to insure the success of
the movement. At a recent meeting
of stockholders, to perfect the organi
zation, directors were elected as fol fel fol
eows: Capt. G. Reed, Hon. I. W.
Case, Judge J. Q. A. Bowlby, Capt.
J. H. D. Gray, C. H. Bain, A. J.
Meglcr, C. S. Wright. These names
ouht to be considered sufficient guar
antee of wise and judicious manage
ment in the association. They are all
careful, competent, and successful
men of business. We kne7: from past
experience, and it is the experience of
others, that money invested in enter
prises of this character are alirays safe
and reliable investments. It may not
pay largely at first; indeed, it may be
some time before bona fide dividends
are received, bat we need only to
point to Portland, to Oregon city, and
elsewhore, to show that in such cases
the money has proven to be not only
saved by the investment, but has in a
brief period of time paid much more
liberal interest than when invested in
almost any other way. We hope to
see uvcry man who has an interest
in the order, every brother who lias
$25 or more to spare from their earn
ings, putting their surplus balances
into this stock.
ITho.se Business 3 it?
The Paul Pry style of news gossips
are all agog now concerning the Walla
Walla railroad. One says:
It is rumored on the street that Br.
Baker and Messrs. Ainsworth, Ladd
& Co. have been unable to conclude
the transfer of the Walla Walla and
Columbia river railroad. Which par
tr fails io come to the scratch has not
transpired. If the sale is not complet
ed we do not think our people will
feel very sorry. No matter how much
they may and do feel like condemning
the way Dr. Baker has managed asid
charged for the use of his road, they
cannot help feeling very grateful to
him for building it, and giving them
the advantages of ample and speedy
communication with navigation. They
also feel that if the proposed sale is
not concluded that the result will be
a war between capitalists for the con
trol of the transportation of this
rapidly growing country. Among the
possibilities are the construction of a
rival road from this place to the river
and the placing of an opposition line
of steamers on the Columbia. In fact
one or both of these events muet soon
follow the failure to sell. Neither
Dr. Baker nor the proposed purchas
ers, who are the heavy men of the
Oregon Steam Navigation company,
can afford to longer continue the re
lations hitherto existing. The -Oregon
Steam Navigation company must
strive to control the approaches of
the Columbia, and Dr. Baker raid as
sociates must have boats on the river,
or they must unite. They cannot af
ford to be at cross purposes. As long
as they occupy their present Dositions

Another, which made it itedmsiness
tosift the matter says:
We cannot find, upon inquiry at
headquarters, any truth in 'the report
that any hitch has occurred in the
sale of the Walla Walla and Columbia
river railroad from Dr. Bitker to the
j Oregon Steam Navigation company.
