water under the new regulations and
it required just 7000 gallons to satisfy
her thirst for drink. This amount
satisfies for one trip aud she will drink
here each dav a total of 14,000 gallons,
at a cost of $2.10 daily or SG3 per
month. Under the old arrangement
by which water was obtained at this
port, this same amount of water was
furnished at S5.00 per month.

Ieople are intlneuced to any great
degree by windy boom articles of
western townsites appearing in eastern
papers. The so-much-a-liuo story,
nearly always gushingly told in a
stereotyped, manner, does not carry
much weight with it People are be
ginniug to realize that after all tho
local newspaper is the best medium
through which to make known tho
advantages of their town. It is not
the singlo article that accomplishes
the most, but tho regular and persis
tent placing before the public the
record of facts as they occur that con
vinces people, it is tlio local paper
that does this most effectually.

To tin Members of the City O'n.cil:
GhNiLKMKS: Ordinance 2w. en
titled an ordinance providing for the is
suing of bonds for the purpose of meet
ing outstanding indebtedness and to
runk i needed improvements in the city
of Astoria, is herewith returned without
as these bonds could have been nego
tiated l a premium double that which
was accepted from N. W. Harris & Oo..
saving to the city the sum of $:!.', I
deem it my dutv to disapprove tin1
Another loss to the cit3' occurs in ihis
wise: tho ordinance specifloa that the
bonds shall be dated "June 1st, 1K0.
which hi' the approval of the same the
city would have to pay one mouth's
interest, amounting to $llf, without
valuo received, as it would havo been
impossible to havo had the money de
livered to tho treasurer short of the first
day of Julj or even later. This would be
saddling upon the city on all outstanding
warrants interest equal to the rate of
fourteen per cent per annum for the
Magnus G. Cbosky. Mayor.
The ordinance was then placed on
its third reading and final passage and
was lost, by a vote of three to two.
The mayor's veto regarding an or
dinance granting Messrs. Henderson,
Urquhart and Blakcny, a franchise for
erecting poles and stringing wire.?,
was then read.
Begarding this, he said:
Tho city being well supplied with tele
phono facilities and a firo alarm .v.siui.
which amply supply the reqnirouunt.s in ,
their respective spheres, and which are ;
akin in their naturo to tho franchise i
asked for, it seems to mo unnecessary to
grant any moro franchises of the char
acter at present. !
The mayor's veto was sustained by a '
unanimous vote. i
A third veto was read from the j
mayor, shutting down on the ordi-!
uauce granting N. J. Levinson ,v. Co.. i
a franchise for the American district
teclgraph service, for the same reason '
as given in the case ol xicimerson, vi
al. This veto was sustained by a
unanimous vote or the five council
men. The committee on fire and water
made a report recommending the
purchase or a team or horses for As
toria Engine company No. one, as soon
as the engine house of that company
was ready for occupancy in its new
situation." The report of the commit
tee was adopted.
The city attorney made a report re
garding the ownership of streets run
ning north and south, to the effect
that the city owned them clear to the
ship channel. It was recommended
that all buildings now on those streets
be ordered removed. Councilman
Welch made a motion to that effect
It w.'is adopted by a unanimous vote.
The city attorney's report was adopted.
The claim of AV. 11. Smith lor laying
sewer pipe in the street in front of
the enstom house was returned with
for further advico and submitting
plans for the inspection of the council.
Auditor Jewett suggested that the legal
limit of the city's indebtedness was
now about reached.
On motion, the committee was au
thorized to go ahead and adverli.se for
bids for the construction of the house.

It takes but a short time for bogus
newspapers lo come to the end of their
tether. For a few days or a few weeks
they can manufacture startling items
in their back offices, and as no other
papers, not even the great metroiol
itan dailies, have any thing like it, the
bogus paper enjoys a brief reputation
for energy and enterprise. But time
straightens that all out Bogus news
never amounts to anything in the long
ran, and in a little while the genuine
newspapers print some real news about
the same matter that the iKigus paper
had previoasly dealt with in a sensa

Astoria is lo lie congratulated, iu
that its railroad dream of years is
likely to meet fulfillment. The de
mand for transportation facilities iu
addition to those furnished by its
waterway service, is a part of that
city's record for the past decade, and
capitalists have at length decided that
there is suilicient inducement in the
way ot business, present anil immedi
ately prospective, to justify a response.
Hence, railway connection between
Oregon's seaport and other points in
the state and Washington is now a
matter ot a very few months. The
people of Portland and the Willam
ette valley generally, since they will
share the great convenience and in a
degree the prosperity resulting from
the building of the projected roads,
may well congratulate Astoria upon
the realization or its hopes in this
direction. Greyon ian.

A St Louis gentleman whose affliction

euro by Joy's Vegetable Sarsaparilla, that he
called it to the attention of a relative, who
happened to be Dr. P. A. Barrett, the well
known St. Louis physician of 2352 Shenan
doah Street. The doctor saw at oucc that it
difltred from the potash preparations in that
it was purely vegetable, and becoming inter
ested, began a scries of investigations, and
in n. subsequent letter candidly admitted its
curative properties, aud says:
Vishiug to test its virtues further, I used
it in my own family, and prescribed it for
patients who required a general system
regulator. As a result, I can say it is an
almost absolute cure for constipation, bil
iousness, dyspepsia, indigestion, aud sick
headaches. These troubles usually come
from a disturbed condition of the stomach.
aud bowels, and Joy's Vegetable Sarsaparilla
is tho best laxative and stomach regulator I

THE CHRONICLE'S" WRITE UP.
What It Said About the City of Astoria.
The San Francisco Chronicle of the
22nd ult, was a sixty page issne of which
tens ot thousands were printed. It
gave a resume of the progress of the
coast, its cities, etc, and the notice of
Astoria was as extended as any city in
the northwest received. This is what
Astoria is a name familiar to every
reader of Washington Irving as having
been the site of tho first settlement of
Americans on the northwest coast fifty
years or more ago. The growth of the
place has been slow until recently.
In 1SG5 the population was only 600,
but within a few years it has jumped
to 10,000, and now this is one of the
most prominent ports on the northern
coast All the buildings twenty-five
years ago were small frame structures,
but they have given way to substan
tial brick and stone blocks, many of
them being three stories in height
Among the more prominent of these
are the Astor house aud po3toflice,
Odd Fellows hall, Flavel block, Pyth
ian Castle, pnblic school and others.
In 18G5 the principal business was
piloting and Indian trading. Now
there are twenty-five salmon canneries
in or near Astoria, with a capital of
$1,125,000. The city has three banks,
three sawmills and box factories, two
boiler and machine shops, two foun
dries, five boat-builders, three daily and
four weekly papers, aud numer
ous other busiuess establishments,
together with water, gas and electric
light works, horse and steam street
railways, telegraph, telephone system,
express ofiices, chamber ot commerce,
athletic club, eight churches, three
schoolhonscs, Masonic hall, Odd Fel
lows' temple. Pythian castle, Ancient
Order of United Workmen, Scandina
vian Benevolent Society, etc It has
the largest ocean steamship docks
north of San Francisco. In addition
to branches or industry enumerated
above, five or six lines of steamboats
owned in Astoria ply daily to ports on
the rivers aud bays in its vicinity.
Astoria is supplied with pure moun
tain spring Avater, brought at an ex
pense of $100,000 from Bear creek, a
distance of 12 miles; 2 steam lire engine
companies and ono hook and ladder
company. The means of communi
cation iu S8o was by river navigation
aud is so largely at the present time.
Bailroad liucs counect the seasido re
sorts in all directions with Astoria,
while a road is being built through to
the Willamette valley to connect with
the Southern Pacific system, ior the
year 1SSS -S9 there were exerted
through the Astoria enstom house
$0,215,3G2 worth of products -wheat
Hour, lumber and salmon. In the
same period the imports were $117,
591. In the foreign trade twenty-five
steamers and 102 sailing vessels were
cleared. Of domestic vessels, 21-1
entered and 232 cleared. This
does not embrace any ot the
cargoes taken from the river by ocean
steamers to San Francisco, Cat, or
salmon shipped overland from Astoria,
nor the large quantity of lumber
shipped coastwise in coasting vessels.
Good lignite coal is known to exist
within twenty-five miles of Astoria
and will be developed when a railroad
is built Good prospects ot iron are
found. The agricultural feature is
principally gnusses, vegetables and
small fruit, and excellent dairy lands.
Lumbering is extensively carried on.
Three saw mills, with a capacity ot
150,000 feet a day, in Astoria supply
the domestic demand and two export,
foreign and coastwise. Clatsop
county is pre-eminently a timlier
comity. The large sawmills in the
city of Portland are supplied chiefly
from logging camps in the vicinity of
Astoria, and tliongh many billions of
feet ot tiuib&r have been taken out, it
Ls so small compared lo the supply
that it may truly be said that up to
this time scarcely a mark has been
made on the timber area. Fir, spruce
and cedar are the prevailing timbers,
with a good deal of hemlock and some
maple. The future of Astoria is
bright In less than two years the
Astoria and South Co:ist Bailroad will
connect with the Southern Pacific
system and be its ocean terminus in
the northwest The Union Pacific
and other transcontinental lines will
follow, if indeed they do not precede.
There is room and bright prospects for
manufactories or all kinds 111 this city.
The completion of tiie Columbia river
jetlv bv the United States govern
ment at a cost of $0,000,000 will so
deepen the bar channel that deep craft
ocean steamers and the largest class of
sailing vessels will visit and discharge
their cargoes at Astoria, from whence
it will bo taken by railroad to the in
terior and foreign imports to all parts
of the world. The beantifnl and
healthful seaside resorts in tlu3 vicini
