Jkweli., Jan. :. I wish to call
attention to the subject of wagon
roads. What is the best policy to
pursue to speedily insure a road
from Astoria to Nehalem? Our
most substantial settlers have come
to the conclusion that if A&toria
will complete a good road to the
Klaskanine, they will open the
oaiance to tins valley. J, lor one,
would guarantee to not ask As-
torians for one dollar to be put
upon our part of the road. We
think it best for the following
reasens: Each party would not
feel under so uiiieh obligations;
Astoria should have for her own
benefit a road to Klaskanine if no
farther; her emigrants would stop
in your city and go to the end of;
the toad, if n. farther: it would

Col. G. L. Gillespie un Thursday,

sounding of the fog signal soon.
- In the year 1880 not a single
passenger on a steam veseel naviga

When a lady wants to purchase
a piece of silk fringe she should ask

her that French is better he either

is telling a willful untruth. The best

best black dress goods and the best

American made, and the French

Gov. Pel kins of California has
seat a special message on the debris
question to the legislature of that
state. Hydraulic mining is putting in
peril the very existence of one of the
most fertile portions of the state.
The governor estimutes the destruc
tion bj agricultural property at six
million dollars already, and the deb
ris is making further encroachments
with increasing rapidity. He recom
mends a general tax for carrying out
the plans of engiueers to arrest it.

The same with merchandise. We
pay too much tariff on our "-oods
when we trade with those who
have given up our road. 1
make no complaint we are very
thankful for such favors. We
know Astorians have been lib-'
eral, hut we cannot follow such
policy long. If Astorius twelve
miles of road was open we could
soon make enough (above a liviug-)
to open our, u e could reason
ably expect more help oon from
new ettlers to build our rematuiiio
road to MisJuuuka, eleven miles,
and the branch road to Jewell, live
miles making sixteen miles for
our part. .Some of our stock men
propose cutting a trail up the Xe
halem river, aTthe juuetion of the
Westport trail, eleven miles and
so drive beeves through 'to either
St. Helen or by way of Dairy
creek to Poitland, which I had
rather do than depend upon driv-
ugauu snipping together. J f that
route is opened I am satisfied it
would be traveled the most, and as
you are well aware one thing al
ways calls for another. 1 f the im
provements go on between these
points a road, then in case of a
freeze up our mail would come
through that way also; and furth
er 1 believe from what J know of
the county, that if ever a railroad
is built to Astoria it will come
from Portland via St. Helen then
across to the Nehalem thirty miles
lollowing it down twenty miles
and continuing; on the Hurlbut
survey to Astoria. I wish you to
understand the matter as we do.
I wan't you to whisper to Astoria
like a Dutch Uncle. If a city
sixty-nine years of age has got no
road leading out into the country
what chance is there to ?e.t into it
with a railroad?
