cite considerable interest. If what is
said is so, and if a road can bo got
into that country, the existence of
coal there is better for Astoria than
any gold mine or railroad that ever
was talked of. It the coal is there
the road will go there fast enough.
Another party is organizing in this

Gen. Minty, a distinguished rail

than that entailed by the building of

A police officer whose beat takes
him into the confines of Chinatown
in Portland, said to a News reperter:
"The Chinamen are actuallystarving.
They Lave no money and there is no
work for them. The Canadian Pa

large number of them will be thrown
out of employment. If they have no
money the companies will not keep
them, and of course, they are thrown
on their own resources."
It is the pleasant experience of The
Astobiax to receive numerous friend

the amount of the bill comes, in sev

to place it to the subscriber's credit

bottom is being rapidly cleared. The

cord wood, which is hauled to a wharf
on a tide-slough running back into

U. Hassell, living near Grange Hall
on Young's river is engaged in the
poultry business, the chickens raised
being mostly of the mongrel varieties;
but there are a number of full-blood
Brown Leghorns in the yards. Until
the present season the hatching has
been done after the old way of set
tincr hens, when this nlanwas suonle-
meuted bv the use of a common-sense
incubator made on the place. Thi
being his first experience with an in
cubator, Mr. II. did not succeed with
the first two clutches of eggs, but
profiting by tho experience in hand
ling the inenbator managed to get
about 80 per cent, of the third
clutch to hatch out. For feeding
young chicks he uses wheat partly
parched and then rather coarsely
ground, and also bran and short
mixed and then moistened with boil
ing water, and after the chicks are a
few days old occasionally adding a
small pinch of black popper to the
food. When chicks are raised with
out the brood hen they are kept, for
the most part, a few in a place.
rather shallow boxes, with a layer of
coarse sacking (old gunny sacks may
be used) placed on the bottom, and a
covering of the same material loosely
placed, but in such way as to allow
vontilation. Thus placed the chickens
will keep warm aud comfortable
during cool weather. When the
weather is sunshiny and warm it is
well to have a small run of several
yards in extent for the chicks to
exercise. Air-slaked lime is frequent
ly used in dusting the chicken roost
and inside parts of the hen house,
with good effect in keeping vermin
away from the fowls, and the absorp
tion of unwolesome odors.
Mrs. J. Rowan, of Astoria, is
breeding fine poultry. In her yards
there are a fine lot of pure-bred birds,
consisting of a trio of Buff Cochins
from the poultry yards of C. H.
Babcock, Exeter, Neb.; a trio of
Brown Leghorns bought of R, L.
Porter, Mukwanago. Wis.; and three
hens and a cockerel from tho poultry
yards of G. B. Bailey, Oakland. Cal.
In addition to these birds Mrs. R, has
in poultry pens thirteen pure-bred
Brown Leghorn pullets. AH of these
fowls are in fine condition. North

Suddrn Death of Mr. Alley Fox.
Mr. Alsey Fox, an esteemed resi

that city at ten o clock yesterday
morning from the rupture of a blood
vessel. One of his sons, Charlton
Fox, was with his father at the time
of his death. Two more of his sons,
John and Alsey, are well known-residents
of this city. The funeral will
tako place in Portland, for which
place they leave this morning. They
have the sympathy of tho community
in their bereavement.
J. J. Burns, general storekeep
er for the Union Pacific railroad, has
been in Portland to inspect a largo
lot of lumber purchased by the com
pany. The lumber will be used for
general construction purposes.
About $75,000 worth has already
been bought, and the company will
hereafter purchase 50,000,000 annu
ally in that city. The lumber is Or
egon pine and" has been found the
best. No more cat lumber will be
used in the construction of cars for
the Union Pacific railroad, except for
brake beams. Oregon fir will besub

PETROLEUM AND COAL.
The substitution of petroleum for
coal on the Terry steamers of the
Central Pacific railroad company was
noticed at length in this journal
some davs ago. The experiment was
first tried on the Solano, which
crosses the strait of Carquinez daily
with freight and passenger trains.
The Solano is tho largest ferry boat
in the world. It was not until the
use of petroleum on that boat had for
months been demonstrated to be a
complete success that other ferry
boats were adapted to tho use of the
same fuel. One largo passenger ferry
boat and a large freight ferry boat
may now be seen daily crossing and
recrossing tho bay without so much
as a faint color of smoke issuing from
the smokestacks. The saving in the
consumption of fuel has already bsen
The great iron steamship which for
more than a year last past has made
an average of three trips a month be
tween this port and Tacoma, on Pu
get eonnd, bringing down on each
trip 4,000 tons of coal from tho Car
bon Hill mine, is laid up at tho rail
road wharf on the Oakland side.
Her smokestack is capped, and it
looks as if she would not enter the
coal trade again for many a day. It
is niven ont that the sailing vessels
can bring down coal at cheaper rates

What Huntington Says.
New York, Oct. 22. A well known
Wall street man said to-day that
Huntington held the whip hand ov
er all the overland business. Being
asked what he thought of leasing the
Oregon Bail way and Navigation by
the Northern and Union Pacific, he
said it was almost certain. He argued
the former was almost entirely de
pendent on the latter. If tho Oregon
Navigation company mado a deal
with the Southern Pacific, it would
only be opening the gate for the Un
ion and Northern to parallel their
lines to Portland.
