NOTICE IS HEBEBY GIVEN THAT
the tax list of the city of Astoria, Clat

in my hands for SO days.
J. G. HUSTLEtt,
City Treasurer and Tax Collector.
Astoria, Oregon, August 1st, 1S87,
A PEEE EIVER.
The report of the committee oa
progress and necessity, made to
the Waterway convention at its
session in Astoria on the 3rd pre
sents a very gloomy outlook for
the completion of the locks around
the Cascades in any reasonable
time. In fact, we do not know
how it could well be gloomier
than it is. Already 61,142,500
have been expended on the work
done, and to complete the present
plans it will cost a million and a
half more. The committee says
if in ten more years the works are
completed, they will be agreeably
surprised. It must be taken into
consideration that a considerable
portion of former appropriations
have been used in erecting build
ings, in the purchase of the plant,
construction of the steamboat,
blasting out the river below the
locks, and in building the bulk
head, and, whether these have
been necessary or not, they will
not have to be done over again
in the future, and appropriations,
with judicious management, should
be hereafter used toward finishing
the work. If the engineers in
charge do not faithfully fulfill
their trust in the use of the public
money granted by congress for the
furtherance of this project, there
should be some method of ascer
taining the fact, and for this pur
pose a committee of competent
persons should be appointed by
congress or by our state legislature.
If there is a waste in the expen
diture of these appropriations the
people should know it, and de
mand through their representa
tives at "Washington that it be
stopped. We are fully aware of
the fact that any move in this di
rection might incur the lasting
hostility of the secretary of war,
Mr. Endicott, who, in the removal
of major Jones, displayed his arbi
trary tyranny in the matter. It
is to be hoped that his official ca
reer is very short, and that with a
new administration some other
person will be at the head of the
war department than one who is
allied to a family of railroad di
rectors. The committee gives no hope-of
any change to the contract system,
and thinlcs the only feasible plan
is for the state to take charge ii
the improvement of the Coltuii'ii
river. From past experience unh
the general government, this view
of the subject will be endorsed
by the producers and businessmen
of the inland empire. If we were
living under a limited monarchy,
perhaps public opinion would
have some weight upon c6ngres
sional action; but as we exist in a
republic, where office frequently is
the result of chicanery and the
most detestable trickery, the case
is different. After the president
gains his seat in the White House,
he is secure for four years, and he
really pays little or no attention to
the wants or desires of the people.
Public improvements being under
control of the secretary of war,
and he being an appointee of the
executive, he considers himself
not amenable to the wishes of the
people, and acts accordingly. The
state officials arc more accessible
to the voters, and the citizens can
hope for more relief from this
quarter. For years congress has
treated the river and harbor bill
as though it were a robbery, and
in two or three instances after it
passedt congress, it has met with a
presidential veto. Mr. Cleveland
Docketed it, and we never will
know what has become of it, ex
cept that it remains in the same
capacious receptacle. The past is
a criterion by which to judge the
future. The late Democratic ad
ministration came into power with
a flourish of trjimpets, that the
rights ot the people wouai be re
spected. Time has proved the
contrary, and Mr. Cleveland and
his cabinet are more under the
domination of railroads than any
other preceding administration.
The producers of the inland em
pire have been literally robbed by
the extortionate .charges of rail
roads, and the only possible relief
has met with little or no encour
agement front the powers at
Washington. A system equal to
landlordism in Ireland has existed
for long years in Eastern Oregon,
and every petition for relief has
befci -apparently .treated with dis
dain by the powers able to grant
it. The people lire satisfied that
no sdeqtiate remedy can come
from congress, and as a matter of
self-protection let them look to
Salem. -At the next election for
representatives to the legislature,
the producers and business men of
the inland empire should be united
in this one thing, that no men are
elected who are not unequivocally
pledged to this measure of an open
river? The criniring whining of
professional politicians should be
unheeded, and men only who are
directly interested in free naviga
tion of the Columbia should re
ceive votes. Party promises are
as deceptive as they can be, and
can be relied on in no instance.
It is time for Eastern Oregon to
understand the true situation and
use every effort for its develop
ment. Dalles Ti7nes-Mountain-eer,
