(2) ASTORIA, OREGON: SATURDAY. SElTEMBEIt 23, 13SB Railroad Rumblings. Theue is not a word from New York regarding the great bear movement on the Tillard stocks. The presumption is, however, that the worst is over, and a rally all along the line will be started next week. The result of the great railroad conference is reported to be satis factory to all who participated, which is a fair indication that the dear public is to be cinched. The N. P. managers say: "The great point is that we can come to San Francisco on the same basis as the Central and Southern Pacific, while they have to pay us for water car riage to and from Portland, which is the only Oregon point to which they are admitted on an equal basis with the Northern Pacific.1' In editorial comment the Jiullctin says the result is regarded as a do feat to the Vdlard interests. Something better was naturally expected. There is now only one course open, and that is for the Northern Pacific to push its route through to San Francisco and thus be in a condition to make its own through tariff between San Fran cisco and New York. Discussing the meeting, the Chronicle thinks, "The meeting can only be considered as a gather ing of robbers of the people for the purpose of amiably discussing the subject of a division of the spoils. The result of the meeting however, has made, one thing quite clear, and that is that the Northern Pacific management is as shame less a violator of its promises, ex pressed and implied, as our own heartless and corrupt monopoly. Tne agreement arrived at by the roads shows that they are not, in a broader sense, competing lines. They are rivals, it is true, but their rivalry is as that of a couple of robber bands who harmoniously determine to parcel among them selves the public highways. The fixing of a common r oute between the terminal points emphasizes the bargain and trumpets to tho peo ple the fact that they need have no hope of relief from the. newly completed transcontinental line, there is one jjinall rifilc in this pool-cloud through which a ray of sunshine may be discerned. A continuation of the extortionate rates now in vogue cannot fail to make plethoric the treasure chest of both corporations, and the sight of their immense earnings will be sure to tempt rival roads into the field. Until they make their de but, the people of the Pacific coast must consent to be gouged by the amiable robbers who have just formed this overland pool." Rucknt developments among the press inventors of the east make it appear probable that in ten years' time, or less, the entire S3stem of newspaper press-work will be completely revolutionized. The new sy'stem seems destined to be based on the lithographic process, but with a zinc plate in stead of a stone to work upon. A clean impression of a page of type taken on a hand-press with litho graphic transfer ink, is transferred to a zinc plate and the printing done direct from that. Two such plates, hooked on to cylinders in juxtaposition print both sides sim ultaneously and without any "off set7' or difficult' in adjustment. The effect will be to reduce the number of cylinders at work, to save wear and tear of type, and to simplify and accelerate every operation about a press-room. Each plate so treated, it is claimed, will be good lor 10,000 impressions, and will be good for repeated use by the mere washing away of the transfer ink. Beer ought to be a good deal cheaper than it is if the Chicago Times is correct in the assertion that hundreds of tons'of tanbark'is being used in its manufacture. It learns, in fact, that "tanbark and soda are the principal sub stances used. A little rice malt gives it body and makes it hold the foam. Hemlock bark is a new discovery in this respect and is useful because it takes the place to a certain extent, of both malt and hops. It is not poisonous but it certainly can not be said to contain any nutriment. It adds the pungent, bitter taste and gives the dark reddish color to the It quid. It is very cheap, aad tho brewers who use it must grow rich very fast. A STATEMENT emnnntitur from Poor's Railroad Manual is to the effect that two-thirds of the fifteen hundred railroad com panies included in that book paj' no dividends. This is the class of investment which it is claimed offers a better prospect of profit for our people than shipping. Give our shipping the same freedom from harsh re staiciions that railways have, man age the property with shrewdness and energy, and there is no doubt that investors will find a safe and profitable investment in shipping. The nse of oil as a preventive of disasters at sea is becoming more frequent. In most of the oases that we have heard of lately the use has been attended .with success, Jsmp-masters should bear this fact in mind, and even if it does not on the first experiment realize their expectations thev should not hesitate to give Tt a second trial. It is th jujjh: that the use of oil at the scene of the Cairmmore disaster, last "Wednes day night might have been of practical benefit. The Inter-Ocean kindly advises Mr. Hoadly to put a Buckeye in his pocket before he encounters the Ohio malaria again. It is said to be a sure-cure. It had better be done now, suggests the Com mercial Telegram, for the judge may be short of Buckeyes in Oc tober. The wire fence war will enarrc an extra session of the Texas leg islature. Some of the pastures are fenced without a break for forty miles or more, aud the only choice left to travelers is either to drive two days' journey out of their way or cut the fence. Gen.
