..,..) -. -- -- ,
a scboolhouse, a barge or a build
ing, it is always forthcoming. In the
' building of thesp things due re
gard is wisely paid to the pecu
niary success of the "undertaking.
And it is right that such is the
case. In twenty years from now,
when our city has the rank and
prominence that her position en
titles her to, there will bo plenty of
us with money enough to endow
libraries and foster literary insti
tution, and do a great many pleas-
arit things with money that are not
at present to be thought of In a
new country, a growing place, the
requirements o everyday life mut
first be met. and satisGed.. After a
while, all in good time, will come
the others. So it is eminently fit j
and proper that in every enter-1
prie that Astorians take hold of J
thev see something in ir as a re
turn fori he amount invested.
There are several thing we
need; several things that eatnc un
der the head of necessities; we
have a daily paper; .swift and com
modinus transportation in all direc
tions; a good cit government; an
efficient county organization; and
several business enterprises that are
daily growing. There are a good
many things we have not got.yetthat
we should have. We ought to have
fruit and meat canneries here; we
ought to have a sawmill of suffi
cient capacity for foreign ship
ment; we ought to have a flour
mill; we ought to have a new
theater; we.want a road to Skipa
non; we should :il have gas
works. All these things will come.
The laws, of supply and demand
are equal; whenever Astorians
generally see the need of these
things; the good of them; wc will
have them, and as soon as they are
here we will wonder why we
didn't 'get them before. liut a
present need, indeed the'greatcst
need of this city, is increased water
,,T facilities. We want waterworks We
;a'hP'ono faultto find with the nres-
-"-fjrit'systein; we suppose t lie owners
fcffel-the best they can, but. their
-lk'-l is away behind the actual nc-
Otssities, the daily needs of the
phce. L"p t a shoit time ago the
-supply was, in a measure, equal to
fhe demand. As matters are now,
the scarcity of water is a sort of
hardship to some, and a positive
annoyance to every resident of the
city. This is a matter that admits
of no argument; everyone sees
the need of some soutce of suffi
cient water supply. There are but
two questions to discuss where
can we get the water? what will it
cost? Some have suggested
Youngs river; but it must be
taken into consideration that a
height must be seemed suffi
cient to insure pressure. This
cannot be obtained by tap
ping that stream. The expense
would be "too great. The men
that put their money into this
thing want to see a fair return on
the amount invested, at least after
the second- or third year. Other
means ofsupply have been sug
gested, but appear to us to be im
practicable. We arc of the
opinion that Tongue Point is the
place to locate our water works.
Build a reservoir there, pump lite
water up and filter it before carry
ing. it in pipes past upper town and
in the hills south and cast of us.
Build river reservoirs and tanks
above the town. Thus we secure
all the desiderata; wo get an inex
haustible supply, wo insure suf
ficient pressure, wc place the ex
pense comparatively low, and bj'
bringing ft large supply directly
above the town have a grand adjunct-
in case of fire. The one
item of insurance alone in this
city would bo lowered sufficiently
dn ashort time to pay for the in
vestment. K jthe next thing is the expense.
maw i ir r iVmiidiT'yfci
A $75,000 capital is needed. That!
can be raised in a vcrv little time.
The formation of astock company, ,
the incorporation as such, the ob-
tatning of twenty years franchise
lrom tne legislature and all the
jreht of the preliminary- work can
be done this fall: active operations
plenty ol elean, pure water by
next season. If theie is anything
in the above we would be glad to j
see it acted upon.
Time was when the present
water facilities were ample; eveu
now, except in the dry weather
we are at present having we can
get along after a fashion but
the faster the citv grows, the more
people we have here, the greater
need for sufficient water supply.
We are having just the same experi
ence that every city in the coun
try has had. It is for us to pn.fi t
by such experience. To .t::it
building water works just l.trg
enough to supply the present
population would be but little bet
ter than doing nothing in the mat
ter. The work when it is bejrun
should be started on a scale rum
mensurate with the faith of itf.
projectors in the future of Astotia.
Altcatl of Time.
A dispatch says the Bulletin
was published in a contemporary
yesterday morning in remarkable
time. It was dated ''London,
July ICth 7 a. m. lOnust hare
been received in the office (S the
journal in question about 2 a. .m,
of the same day, that is to say five
hours earlier than its date. The
same dispatch was sent to Lon
don from Alexandria at 1:-10 a.
m. of the same date. But as the
day begins in that portion of the
Mediterranean before it does in the
British metropolis, it arrived
there, apparently, -10 minutes be
fore it was forwarded. If theie
was no delay in cable or land line,
a dispatch from London at. 7 a. .r.
could arrive in this e;y at 1 1 :30
j. m. of the preceding day.
These wonders are now looked
upon with a dreamy sort of indif
ference. But if any one twenty
five years ago had said that the
feat could lie performed, he would
have been set down as a madman.
Poger Bacon did have a more or
less distinct notion of locomotives
and balloon? and diving bells.
Upon this point at least, we :ue
upon firm historical ground. That
the celebrated monk was the true
Mother Shiptou. But no one had
imagination enough to pi edict
that messages could be sent under
oceans and over continents with
the rapidity of thought. The dis
patches we are considering travel
under the Mediterranean sea to
Italy or to France, thence over
land to the English channel,
under that channel to London,
and from London, under the At
lantic, to New York, and thence
acrossjhc American continent to
the office of our contemporary.
But this is only a part of the
wonders that arc being performed.
By attaching at Malta a telephone
to the submarine cable from Alex
andria the bombardment of the
12th was distinctly heard at the
island in question. To these, re
sults mankind has worked its way
slowly. We have Frankliu first in
the lines catching lightning with
his kite. Next we have Morse,
another American, inventing the
telegraph. After that came the
cable, and after the cable the tele
phone, the last, American in its
conception likewise. These mat
ters arc accepted as so much a
matter of course now, that thev
do not even excite remark.
