TUESDAY May '27, 1S7).
CITIZENS MASS MEETING.
A mass meeting of the citizens of
Astoria will be held in this city on
SATURDAY EVENING 2STEXT,
Hay aist, is;:,
To take into consideration matters
connected with the proposed railroad.
Every citizen of Astoria, and the
country surrounding, are earnestly re
quested to be present at this meeting.
Timely notice of the hall, or place
where the meeting will be held, will
be given through the columns of This
Astoria.
DeatH of Wm. laoyd Garrison.
A telegram was received here last
night announcing the death of Win.
Lloyd Garrison at Boston, Mass., in
the 74th year of his age. It occurred
at eleven o'clock Saturday night, and
the telegram announcing it was re
ceived at ten minutes past eleven.
Mr. Garrison was known as "The
Great Liberator."' He devoted all his
time and talents, up to the time of
the rebellion, in aiding the anti-slavery
movement. He w:is a man of groat
purity of character and of the highest
moral purpose. Mr. Garrison was the
father of Mrs. Henry Yillard, who
waited upon him in his last sickness.
Why Not.
In our Pnget sound exchanges we
read that about 5,000,000 feet of logs,
cut high up on the Snohomish, on
government l.md, has been seized by
over zealous smellers m the service of
Uncle Sam. SVe have nothing to sa:
But one thing we protest. Why allow
the hoardes of barbarous Chinese to
come here and rob our mineral lands
of its treasure, w hen a few white men
are not permitted to fell the tall forests
and convert a barren waste into an
arable region? Ts not an honest Chris
tian toiler in a logging camp as good
as a heathen thief in the gold mines?
If not, why not. We ask that Sen
ators Grover, and Slater, and Repre
sentative Whiteaker inquire into this
matter. It is time for a change.
Astoria to Wixmemucca'
Commenting upon an article in
The Astoriax relating to the
prospects of the Astoria and Yin
nemucca railway company, recent
ly organized in this city, the Al
bany Democrat of the 23d sa3's:
The people of this, the central por
tion of Oregon, are equally interested
in this matter. If the projected road
is built it must of necessity pass
through this region of country (most
probably through our own Albany),
and our citizens should therefore be
alive to its importance. A road from
Winnemucca, on the Central Pacific,
passing through the rich grain pro
ducing section of Oregon and termi
nating on the Pacific seaboard at Asto
ria, would be of more value to this
immediate vicinity than all other
transportation routes combined, and
our people should irive the proposed
enterprise all the aid and eneouotge
ment possible.
Referring to the coming rise in
the Columbia the Dalles Mountaineer
says: "The Columbia river lias com
menced rising again, but has not yet
reached the mark it attained this time
last month. Many of our citizens
especially those doing business on
First street, are fearful that we are
oing to have another high water this
summer, equal to that of three Tears
ago. W e have t-ilked with a party re
cently from the upper Columbia, and
it was his opinion that the river would
not come to the ordmnry high water
mark, for the reason that nearly all
the. sw fell m February and March
and that it all passed off with the
spring freshet, which was the highest j
that was ever Known m that country.
The rher at that point was higher in
April than it was ever before known
in that month. We are inclined to
believe, from all the information we
can gather, that we are not going to
have a flood this summer, at least noth
ing to compare with that of I87G "

A Visitors Impressions.
Uncle David jSTewsome put in a por
tion of his time at the canneries.
during his visit to Astoria. Com-
.. i.i i
menting upon what he saw r, he gives us
the follewing: j
A very large proportion of the labor ,
useu mine canneries is "iicainen iiii-i
nese." Not that tlie proprietors prefer!
bavin" iliem. hut from the lnet f.h:it .:i . I
full supply ofVhite men cannot be had)
to do the work. Again the priee of can- j Special and rerenipf cry
ned salmon is so low thh vear that it re- j iij. !. A itrvfinn Qi fo
quire cheap labor to keep up the bu.si- Underwriters A'JCtlGll bale,
ne.ss at all. Perhaps there is not one instructed by the Fire Insurance Undcr
pronrietor of an cannervontheColiini-! writers I will sell on
liia who would hire Chinamen if they i
could help it. And this is the ease with!
tanners anu outer up uie vauey. it
was only a force that caused the lar.d-i
owners in western Oregon t- hire Clii i
lianien to grub and rlear iin their lands, j
So soon as the evil of their presence in
this state can be remedied, it will be
done, it is to be hoped that the time
may soon come when the Indians and
Chinamen in Oregon will be like angels
visile, "few and far between."
Concerning Astoria as he finds it,
and as he expected to find it, Mr.
2sewsomc says:
I must confess that I was much sur
prised on coming to this city two days
ago. 1 had heard often that Astoria w as
set upon the side of a steep high moun
tain, with no room for a town. 13y ex
tending the city somewhat into the bay,
for two miles tip and down it, and oeeu
pvingall the room on the slopes of the
low hills in the rear: and beyond the
summit to the waters beyond. 1 find that
there is room for a population of one
hundred and fifty thousand peions,
with all the buMiiess hou.ses. wharves,
factories, canneries, mills, and dwellimr
houses, necessary for such a population.
BuiTihjjton. Iowa, and Alton. 111., were
twice as rough and steep and far more
difficult to make towns upon, than i
Astoria. When a breakwater shall ex
tend a!ong the front here for three or
four miles, as will come to pass, then can
filling begin from the risinir grounds in
the rear. If Astoria has nut a large
farming country around, it has a supe
rior harbor and deep water adjoining
the fronts upon the piling. And that
at low tide. The fishing businos ap
pears likely to last until the Pacific
dne up; and the place is in direct com
munication with the upper Columbia
and its affluents. And when river
steamers and barges can arrive here
from the vast wheat districts in eastern
Oregon. Washington tenitory and por
tions of Idaho, laden with millions of
bushels of grain, and hundreds of tons
of Hour, and wool, and load upon the
large ocean vessels here outward bound
to the worlds markets then will Astoria
be heard from. Then will the railroad
from the Union Pacific, via Fort Hall
and Umatilla terminate here, as it surely
will, thereby connecting the Atlantic
and Pacific oceans, ami Astoria will be
the iireat shipping point north of San
Fraiieisco for Oregon. If the harbor of
refuge be located down the bay from
Astoria; and the channel across the bar
be properly improved as itsho tld be, a
ireat mait of trade an business must
center here. It is essentially a sea-port
town. David aewsojie.

Sensible Conclusion.
Astoria, Oregon, May 25. 1S79.
Editor Asteriax:
As a father of a family yourself I
think 3ou will agree with me tluit the
inclosed excerpt is to the point, and
well worthy the serious consideration
of a certain class of young men getting
to be. very numerous in tlys city. By
inserting it in your interesting paper
you will oblige Mater Familus.
This is the way in which a Louisville
girl disposes of a young man, according
to the Courier Journal. She says: You
have asked mo pointedly if 1 can marry
you, and 1 have answered you pointedly
thatl can. I can marry a man who
makes love to a different girl every
month. 1 can marry a man wliqse main
occupation seems to be to join in a
gauntlet in front of churches and thea
tres, and comment audibly on the peo
ple who are compelled to pass through
it. 1 can marry a man whose only
means of suppoitis an aged father. I
can marry a man who boasts that any
girl can fe won with the help of a good
tailor and an expert tongue. I can mar
ry such a man but 1 wont!"
Centennial Souvenir
The Magee Furnace company, of
Boston, Mass., is one of the largest
stove and iron works in the United
States. Their agencies extend all
over the universe. In Astoria they
are represented in the house of Jack
ins & Hawes, who keep and make a
specialty of the Magee standard cook
ing ranges, and as a guarantee their
names are cast upon the plate. At the
centennial in 1S1J6 the Boston house
of Magee was among the most exten
sive exhibitors. They received the
prize medal, and now comes a souvi
nir of that event, in the shape of a
facsimile of the medal, and a true
copy of the Declaration of Indepen
dence, cast in a frame all ready for
hanging. It is one of the finest piec
es of castings we have ever seen. It
is on exhibition at the store of Jackins
& Hawes, on Main street.
On Saturday last as the new
steamship State of California lay at
the dock in Astoria discharging freight
the passengers amused themselves by
visiting various places of interest in
the city. Mr. Wr'mht, Capt. Carroll,
.Martin Bulger, ct at, visited The As-
toriax office. Frank Pixley, benator
Sargent, ct al. went to the canneries.
All were accompanied by ladies. At j
one ot the canneries one oi tne xauiea,
who wore spectacles, was making an
entry in hur memorandum book, when
he boss celestial advanced to the chief
book-keeper and inquired if the
"Missee was a new tallee-m'an V
Meaning time keeper. He w;is nega
itvely answered.
