THURSDAY APRIL 3, 18S3
The bustle ai.d stir tbat marks
this season's operations give rise to
countless speculations and enter
prises, some tangible and likely,
others vague and indeterminate.
Just at present the air is filled with
rumors concerning railroads. If
half what is said comes to pass,
Astoria will have more railroads
than she can dispose of. It may
be as well to briefly state that no
railroad will come to Astoria this
season. It is within the limits of
probability that work will be be
gun next season. This may be in
opposition to general belief, but it
is the fact nevertheless. The O.
& G. seems the most lively; its
stockholders hold a meeting next
Tuesday in Portland where sup
plemental articles of incorporation
will bo submitted, and no doubt
adopted, such supplementary pro
visions looking with other things
to the building 'of a road from
Forest Grove to Astori a. This is
done for effect, and to show con
gress that they really want to pre
vent the forfeiture of the Astoria
land grant by complying with the
original provisions of the condi
tional grant. The O. & C. has
been leased by the Oregon and
Transcontinental, and no part of
the present programme of that
corporation contemplates the build
ing of the road.
Then comes the Kalama branch
from Portland; that will be built
to the stated point, but no farther
down the Golumbia this season.
The contemplated transfer of all
the O. R.'& N. Co's interests to
the Northern Pacific R. R. Co., to
be made this season is sufficient
evidence of that.
The Oregon Short Lint, accord
ing to Sidney Dillon "will go to
tidewater." There is no intentien
to stop at Baker City and the
recent agreement with the O. R.
& N. Co., does not prevent extend
ing the road; there are now parties
of survevors on Snake and Burnt
rivers, and this force will be aug
mented as the season advances.
Coming nearer home there is
talk of the revival of local railroad
interest, and making such arrange
ments as will insure the building
of a railroad to Astoria; this has
..assumed taugible form and will be
productive of results in the near
future. It is not deemed best to
give undue publicity to plans ta
Senatei: Vest arrived in St.
Louis last Tuesday, on his way
home to Kansas City. In an
interview he said the next presi
dent certainly would be a Demo
crat. He believed McDonald, of
In diana,the most available man. He
is popular in his own state, and to
Vest's surprise, is strong in the
eastern states. In regard to
Tilden's probable candidacy he
said: "Tilden is a strong man
and would make a good candidate
if his health would permit. I
understand his health is much im
proved at present. I am inclined
to think the race will be " between
Arthur and McDonald. Arthur is
working for-the next nomination.
It is a mistake that he and Conk
line have fallen out. Logan may
give Arthur trouble."

Tin: St. Louis Globe Democrat
iays that there is :i significance in
tho present tour of President Diaz
through the United States which
has not hitherto been made public.
International courtesies and im
provement of commercial relations
are well enough, but it is not believ
ed the hospitality and enthusiasm
have an influence prompting it all.
Diaz is in the hands of a syndicate
of Ameiicans interested in Mexi
can railroad development. His
present position in Mexico makes
him extremely valuable, and their
plans contemplate thoy will be
still more available in the future.
After his return to Mexico he is
expected to be still more widely
recognized than ever as the lead
ing man of that Republic.
His re-election to the presidency
is the object the syndicate
have in view, and then their hopes
of controlling the valuable conces
sions Mexico has bestowed on
railroad companies "will be fulfilled.
How lar Diaz is a passive instru
ment of his party, and how far he
enters actively into the grand
plan of controlling the politics and
railroads of Mexico, it is impossi
ble to tell, but enough has been
developed during tho sta' of the
general and companions in St.
Louis to show something of the
organization. As the matter now
istands, the alliance is a powerful
one, but if the plan of re-electing
Diaz to the presidency succeeds,
the syndicate will be one of im
mense strength in the railroad
intetests of Mexico. It has rep
resentatives and influences in
Denver, New Orleans, St. Louis,
Kansas City or Mexico and Chihuahua.
