ASTOBIA. OREGON:
C. IRELAND Ertxtor.
FRIDAY May 30, 1870.
CITIZENS MASS MEETING.
A mass meeting of the citizens of
Astoria will be held in this city, at the
Court-house, on
SATURDAY EVENING NEXT,
May 3I1, 18T9,
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.
Shoiild be "Considered."
The very modest request of the
Jacksonville Sentinel, couched in the
annexed clipping, certainly should be
"considered.'' By all means the
Board of Engineers for the Pacific
coast should "consider" the feasibility
of assuring that "railway and cheap
transportation" for Jacksonville which
the selection of Crescent city as the
point for the harbor of refuge would
assure, even though the $18,000,000
annually exported from the country
through Astoria be ignored. Grass
may be short in Jacksonville, and our
worthy neighbor of the Sentinel should
sins those words to the tune the old
cow died ef:
"This is not the time for grass to grow.
Consider, good cow, consider."
The Sentinel says:
It is really wonderful how many
harbors of refuge the congressional ap
propriation of one hundred and fifty
thousand dollars has developed. Each
indentation in the coast is considered
extremely eligible by the people in its
immediate vicinity, and it is surprising
how much engineering skill is to be
found in Oregon. It seems that even
the mouth of the Columbia is thought
to be the proper point. And the peo
ple of Linn and Benton have 'res
oluted." Eoulweather into a safe and
commodious harbor, capable of shelter
ing any amount of shipping, always
provided that it is to be the point
where the money is to be spent. We
believe that every point on the coast
has been carefully examined by the
coast survey and our opinion is that if
the mouth of the Columbia had been
considered susceptible of improvement
or regarded jis the proper point for a
harbor of refuge, it would have receiv
ed especial attention, as it is the desti
nation of nearly half of all the ship
ping sailing to points north of Hum
boldt. It is to protect shipping
caught in heavy weather, when
the most intrepid sailor would not
dare to approach the mouth of the
Columbia, that a harbor of refuge is to
he created, and if that point is as free
from danger and accessible as the
Portland and Astoria press would
have us believe, then there is not the
slightest necessity for the expenditure
of a dollar. Speaking for the interests
of southern Oregon and without claim
ing the slightest engineering skill we
will continue to hope that when the
board decide this important question
they will see tit to select Crescent City,
as such a decision will assure us a rail
road and cheap transportation to the
sea. We express this hope without
feeling that it will have the very
slightest effect on the board of
engineers who have control of the
whole matter.
With all due deference to the sub
ject .we may as well state that the
mouth of the Columbia is "susceptible
of improvement," and the only reason
that can possibly be assigned for its
not having "received especial atten
tion" heretofore, lays in the fact that
the "influences" at Washington and
elsewhere, even in the offices of the
boards of underwriters, has been over
no the other sides against us from
the too common error that Astoria
might rival San Francisco on the
south, and Portland in the interior,
for commercial supremacy, but as we
have before stated, this error has been
dissipated by a more intelligent view
of the surroundings, and these two
leading citiea now see that the
proper development of the country
tributary to the Columbia river will
not detract in the leasL from the up
rising of either city mentioned, but
add materially to the growth and
prosperity of all, and as one of the
most material aids to that develop
ment the wisest thing that can be
done -will be the location of the harbor
of refuge at the mouth of the Columbia.
Base and Cowardly Lie.
"Wo hope our readers will pardon
the "ragged edge" of this caption; but
forcible words seem to be necessary
sometimes to carry truth "home."
The Petaluma Times of the 2d, con
tains a letter from "a sufferer" by the
Great Republic disaster who, in the
course of his remarks, savs the pot
"vas to blame, "because he was drunk,"
etc. We have hurled this slander
back into the teeth of men making it
in several different places. Now, for!
the benefit of the press generally, we '
can say this much, and ask the press ,
to copy it: 1. That the assertion is
wholly and totally false; Mr. Doig
never drinks liquor of any kind; he is
a sober, temperate man. 2. There is
not a pilot employed on the Columbia
river bar that does drink Pilots Sta
ples, Malcolm, Hanson, Eric Johnson,
Geo. Flavel. can testify for themselves.
3. If anybody was to blame; if people
persist in attaching responsibility upon
some one for this loss, blame the A1
mightyl He did it. Will you dare
take upon yourselves tat shire of the
responsibility? Up to two o'clock p.
M. of Saturday (the ship struck on
Saturday a. r. at one o'clock), the
weather was delightr.il. It was a clear
starlight night, and as calm ai a mill
pond, and every prospect of getting
the ship off without damage. At six
o'clock Saturday evening, seventeen
hours alter she struck, the barometer
stypd a'- 29: and that night at 11:30
o'clock, when everybody expected to
see her come off, the wind wa-. blowing
a living gale, and none of the tugs
coald reach her. That was what
caused the loss of the stcmship Great
Republic. "Now don't let us hear any
more of this sickly sentimentalism,
and twaddle about Pilot this, and
Captain that, it is all a d d lie, and
we don't care who it is that says it.
