Tho Oregonian announces that Astoria
has an abundance of fresh water, and the
only regret here is that the statement is
a little premature. Water Ls about the

every one is in hopes that the blockade

tunate that this delay should occur, but
there doesn't seem to be much use in wor
rying about it; better pat the water com
pany on the back (figuratively speaking)

salmon trout shall get stuck in the pipe

uncertainty. Lateb. The water was
turned on at half-past eight last evening.
A large crowd gathered in front of The
Astobiah office to see the flow occasioned
by the disconnection of the main in
front of the building, and after the first
burst of astonishment was over, some
one proposed three cheers, which were
given with a will. Mr. "Welch says the
water will not be ready to turn on in
private pipes till to-morrow.
The proprietors of the Seattle Post
Intelligencer announce that it costs them
ninety dollars a day to run that news
paper; that they depend upon advertising,
etc., to keep the enternrise iroiug; and re
fuse to do free advertising. This is a
singular -statement for a newspaper to
xaske. A newspaper, as every one knows,
is ran solely x for amusement, everyone
connected with it has ample private
funds, the compositors, 'printers, press
men, etc.,jaever think of such a thing as
asking for money, they set type all night
for the'fun of the thing, and as for type
founders, paper manufacturers, etc.,
wanting money, the idea is absurd. The
Post-Intelligencer doubtless knows that
the men who manufacture tho appliances
that produce a newspaper would havo
their feelings hurt at the bare suggestion
that they reooivo monev for what is to
them a labor of love. That tho Post-Intelligencer
spends ninety dollars a day
shows great laok of business tact. True,
that ninety dollars is circulated in the
community in which the paper is pub
lished, but what of that! The better
plan for the Post-Intelligencer folks is to
go and run a bill at every place of busi
ness that they can get to trust them, get
ahead of the merchants in that way,
and then make them "take it out in ad
vfiTtisinff." Bv doina this thev will ran-
eervo tneir own sou-respect, gam tne
confidence of every one and solve the
problem that puzzles a good many.

of a busy day in Astoria's greatest in

places along the river from Ilwaco to

Willamette arrived; at the same time the

salmon, and took a tug to tow to sea; the
Jorsalfatcr hoisted her Norwegian flag
and went to sea wheat laden. Moored
along tho docks were the Jessie Jamison,

ROAD TO ASTORIA,

new After All.
From tho Northwest News.
The public in 1881 could not then "nn
derstand what prompted Villard to lease
and stop the narrow gauge roads at a
point twenty-eight mile3 from Portland.
The sole reason is now discovered. Vil
lard, tho Suizbacks, and other Germans
owned $11,000,000 bonds of tho O. &, C.
B.R., which were acquired at 13 to 16
cents on tho dollar, as tho testimony in
the Elliot case against tho O. &. C. R. R.
in the supreme court demonstrated. They
purchased frorn,Ben Holladay the stock
of the Oregon Steamship Co., O. fe C.
railroad and Oregon Central railroad and
paid him $800,QJMHn bonds.; The actual
cost of that line1 to Roseburg (193 miles)
was $5,3$9,0G9, although th'e first mort
gage bonds were $10,950,000 over that
portion, issued at'GO cents on the dollar,
realized $6,570,000. Between the issue in
1869 and the 1st of April, 1833, when the
O. & C. railroad' defaulted in paying in
terest on its bonds, that company had
paid from the $6,570,000 of proceeds of
bonds $1,180,931 jas interest; consequently
the actual sums invested 'in the road to
Roseburg was the difference" of $5,339,
069. These items are taken'from the O.
& O. Railroad Co.'s books. Between
September, 1870, when the O. & O. road
was opened to Salem (53 miles) to De
cember 1, 1879, (some years after it was
opened to Roseburg), thenet receipts
were $1,819,718 for nine years and threa
months, or $202,191 per year, equal to 4
percent per ear net earning upon the
actual cost, but only 1 1-5 per cent, per
year upon the first mortgage bondswhich
were then $12,000,000. Now, it is seen
that Villard and his Gerihan friends
owned the bonds for $1,500,000, and had
paid Holladay $300,000 additional to se
cure the other properties. The O. & C.
railroad books show tho average net re
ceipts were $202,191, or about 10 per cent,
per year on the actual cost to Villard and
the Germans of their enterprise. "What
does he do now? Ho proposes after he
had secured the narrow gauge Toads in
18S1, to convert these $12,000,000 of bonds
into 7 per cent, preferred stock, and the
interest which had accumulated on the
bonds to $7,000,000, ho proposes to con
vert into common stock altogether $19,
000,000 and then makes a new issue of
first mortgage bonds of $6,000,000. To
do what? To purchase tho "West Side
road, from tho "Western Oregon Railroad
Company to Corvallis and tho Lebanon
branch and fund tho floating debt, al
leging as his published statement to
March 31, 18S2, shows that the actual cost
of construction, equipment and supplies
of those united roads, then 306J miles,
was $13,119,931.36. These are Villard's
own figures. Beforo the narrow gauge
lines wero constructed it has been shown
above that he and bis German friends
wore earning over 10 per cent, per year
upon the cost oftheir investment in Ore
gon and California railroad as far as
Roseburg. But finding in 1831 that these
KABBOW OA.UOB LIKES
Are to his great competitors when they
reach Portland with their east and west
side divisions between his lines' and the
mountains and thoir river' divisions in
the center, the latter sharing with him
the traffic at towns of Salem, Albany,
Harrisburg, Independence and Corvallis
(the valley wheat centers) and taking
that wheat traffic by steamers to Ray's
landing and narrow gauge to Portland,
thus aving fifty cents per ton lockage
and ten cents per passenger, Villard bo
comes alarmed at these results and forth
with dispatches Vice President Brether
ton of the Oregon and California rail
road and J. B.Montgomery to Dundee,
Scotland, to buy up the Harrow Gauge
and stop it at Dundee, twenty-eight
miles from Portland. The evidence
taken in tho Branson caso before tho
supremo court in 1833, showed clearly
that "William Beid opposed Villard's lease
and warned the Scotch directors that the
result would be to break the lease within
four j-ears and he earnestly beseeched
them to take the road to Portland first
and then lease to Villard, and two and a
half years afterwards tho lessees of the
Oregon Railway and Navigation Com
pany repudiated Villard's lease, declared
it illegal and void and Ieavo the Scotch
Company with its incompleted road, its
traffic on tho east side broken in three
places for want of three bridges two on
the North and South Santiam rivers and
the third on the "Willamette river at
Ray's landing and its traffic on the west
side, and operated by the Oregon and
California Railroad Comoanv lines with
out oven carrying freight and passen
THE WILLAMETTE BIYEB.
"What was the object of Mr. Villard in
all this? As was said before he and his
German friends owned in 1831 $12,000,000
of preferred stock, and $7,000,000 of
common stock of the O. fc 0. railroad.
These were valueless, however, because
the net earnings for the year 18S1, as his
published statement proves, were $317,
'205, and although these yielded over 10
per cent, interest upon the actual cost of
their investment, yet he and they wanted
to make a few millions by the transac
tion, and they did it too. Finding that
the common and preferred .stock wonld
not sell in "Wall street, London, Glasgow
and Germany, unless it had guaranteed
dividends, he leases the O. & 0. railroad
lines to the Oregon Transcontinental, at
a guarantee of 2 per cent, upon the
preferred stock, and borrows $9,000,000
additional from Transcontinental on
first mortgage bonds to extend the 0.&
O. railroad to the Oregon and California
state boundary lines. Now ono can see
tho success of his scheme by pioking up
tho London and Glasgow newspapers and
find O. & C. railroad preferred stock sell
ing in 1883 at $50 to 57 per $100 share
and his common stock at $25 to $30 per
share, and when Villard resigns his
management of the Transcontinental
and Northern Pacific, he and his German
friends aro found to be no longer large
owners of either common stock or pre-
ierrea stock in tne yj. cc u. railroad.
Taking the common stock sold at $25 oer
share would realize $1,750,000, and the
preferred at $50 per share would realize
them $6,000,000, while tho stocks cost
them (as has been shown above) only
VILLABD AKD HIS OEBMAK PBIEVDS
Have thus netted a clear profit of nearly
$6,000,000 upon their investment of 81.-
800,000, all because they had secured a
lease of tho Narrow Gusge lines and
stopped the latter from reaching Port
land, in 1881, beforo they had sold out
their common and preferred stock in O.
& C. railroad. Not only has Villard thus
wrecked tho Narrow Guago lines com
pletely, but wo aro sorry to say bo has
proved unfaithful to tho O. R. & N. Co.,
which first gave him notoriety. The O.
R. fc N. Direotors are now much dis
gusted to find that ho used their com
pany to guaranteo and pay to tho Scotch
company $140,000 per year for the lease,
and yet operated the Narrow Guago lines
as feed era purely to tho O. &. 0. railroad
on the east and west sides. For instance,
the Narrow Guage only received pro rata
rates on freight hauled to O. & C. rail
road, which having flf ty-fivo miles on the
west side and eichtv-seven miles on tha
east side from Lebanon Junction; and
thirty-six miles from "Woodburn Junction
to Portland, thus received over two-thirds
of the gross receipts of the Narrow
Guace lines. Had these freights and
passengers gone to the "Willamette river
and been hauled from thence to Port
land, the O. R. & N. Co., as lessees of tho
Narrow Gauge, would have received at
least fifty cents per ton of lockage at
Oregon City, even although they carried
the Narrow Guago freights ana passen
gers for nothing upon the river steamers
o Portland. It is a clear caso of Villard
using the Narrow Guage Co. and tho O.
R. & N. Co. to pull the chestnuts out "of
the fire, for tho benefit of the O. & G.
railroad and his Garmau friends and
himself, and leaving the Oregon and
Transcontinental stockholders to carry
tho O. & C. railroad's heavy mortgage
debt, and preferred stock, on which the
Transcontinental had guaranteed 6
per cent, and 2 per cent, respect
ively. VILLABD COKFIBMS THB ABOVE FACTS.
In bis printed report to the stockhold
ers of tho Oregon and California railroad
dated New York, May 1st, 1882, Mr. Vil
lard confirms theso facts by saying: "In
other words the termination of tho hurt
ful competition which existed previously
between the lines of this company (O. &
C. R. R.), Ithe steamboats running on
the "Willamette river and the narrow
gauge lines owned by the Oregonian Rail
way Company, limited of Scotland en
abled this company to charge much bet
ter rates on grain than it had received
during the year 1880. The competition
by water was ended by the friendly rela
tions now permanently established, ' it is
hoped, between this company and the
Oregon Railway and Navigation Com'
pany through the personal union, so to
speak, of common management repre
sented by myself, and that by land
through the lease by tho last mentioned
company of the Oregonian Company sys
tem. This lease has not only relieved
this company (O. C. R. B.) from the
great danger of the construction of a
fine down the "Willamette valley into thfc
city of Portland parallel to its own two
lines on the right and left banks of the
river, which construction the other comf.
