THE HUNTINGTON CONFERENCE.
Till: EXACT ST.LTKOF Till: CASK.
i Yesterday's Astokian contained the
only true statement published re
garding the result of the conference
of the committee of directors of the
Astoria and South Coast road with
C. P. Huntington in Portland last
Monday and Tuesday.
The Columbian, winch cannot, ap
parently, tell th? truth about any
thing at home or abroad, says Mr.
Huntington has signed a contract to
build the road. This is false and
leads to wrong impressions.

after the matter had been examined
and understood, as far as practicable,
in so short a space of time, Mr. H.

the hose This has been set at rest
forever by experiments made before
Mayor Pond, ot San Francisco, the
fire committee and many others. The
result is astonishing.
In the first test 100 feet of hose
were used, which threw a stream a
distance ot 200 feet, and showed a
pressure of 90 iounds at the nozzle
In the second test 200 feet ot hose
were used, and a stream of water was
thrown a distance of 174 feet at first
trial, aud at the second trial after
some washers had been put on the
hose to stop leakage, 182 feet, and
showed a pressure at the nozzle of GO

hose were used, and the stream was
thrown 148 feet, showing a pressure of
50 pounds at the nozzle In the
fourth test GOO feet of hose were used,
and the stream was thrown 100 feet
with 30 pounds pressure at the noz
zle In the fifth test 800 feet ot hose
were used, a stream was thrown 85
feet, with ti pressure at the nozzle ot
10 pounds. In the sixth test, with
1,000 feet of hose, a stream was thrown
a distance ot 51 feet, showing a pres
sure of G pounds at the nozzle.
This last test showed that when the
hose was turned straight up, the
stream would barely reach the top of
the second-frame buildings in the

scarcely any pressure at all.

relation to the Astoria project On
this score he was decidedly non-com

given them no definite assurance that
he will build the road. The conver
