OREGON: (lKllIIinillUIIIIHIHHHH nilllllllllinilHIHIIIIHHIM SATURDAY. ..-AUGUST 10. 1890 S&Pf'XJlvihi0: Sr-:j,ifwi-3 "lym Ty Tiiiuei: hundred and ninety-six tons of dressed beef have lately been shipped by the cold storage system adopted on the steamships, and the success of the first experiment insures a continuance of the shipments. TnrnE has just been incorporated at Oakland, the "Washington Coal and lumber company, with a capital stoek of a million dollars. The object is to lease and purchase coal lands in Ore Roa and "Washington. It may be -well for people on the Nehalem coal fields to correspond with the company, if they need any help in developing their mines. Dame Ruiion has it, (but she is an unreliable jade generally), that the Northern Pacific railway has pur chased the line from Ilwaco and Nah cotta, owned by the Ilwaco Railway and Navigation company, and will ex tend it to a point opposite Astoria. It may possibly be true, but it is not necessary to become over-excited in reference to the matter, as time will soon show the facts in the case. The expectation that the spread of electric lighting would seriously di minish the consumption of gas is not boing realized, says JJradstreets. On the contrary, the use of gas is steadily increasing, even where electricity is gaining the most popularity. Output figures from, forty different points for the first five months of the year show an average increase in the consump tion of gas over that for the first five months of 1SS9 of 13.2 per cent., and it js expected that the gain for the j ear will be even larger, owing to the in crease in the use of gas stoves. This tells most, of course, in the summer months. Among the dispatches on the first page will be found a telegram from St. Paul, Minnesota, in reference to railroad matters, which may possibly be indicative of important railroad moves in this direction. The Great Northern is reaching across the con tinent, and will ere long be firmly established with several outlets or seaports on this coast, and it is not at all unlikely that Astoria may be one of its objective points to strike ocean connection. In the light of past moves of that gigantic corporation, it would not be surprising if the Great Northern should prove to be the dark horse in the railroad race, so far as wo are concerned. Ok the third page of this issue is a communication from "Granger," in which the writer gives his views on the situation of affairs in regard to the Astoria and South Coast railroad. Tne directors claim to understand the matter thoroughly, and have no fear that they will lose control of the road. From information they have given The Astokiax, and which can not bo divulged at present, it would seem that they are all right, and that everything will come out as desired. It is very likely that "Granger" is un necessarily alarmed, and that the directors arc fully aware of the exact situation, aud as they have a large amount of money invested, and feel confident of the result, it hardly seems as if others need bo uneasy. Soirn results, at once curious and interesting, respecting food adulter ation are disclosed in the report of the analysts of tho Dominion of Can ada for the year ending Juno 30. It appears that butter, cheese, canned lobster and chewing-gum were among the articles found to be wholly free from adulteration. Baking powder was found to be extensively adulter ated, 105 out of 150 samples being found to be adulterated with alum and other substances. Cream of tar tar was also extensively adulterated, C3 out of 145 samples examined being impure. Lard also is a frequent sub ject of adulteration, only about half the samples examined by the Domin ion analysts being genuine. Cotton seed oil is apparently the principal substance used as an adulterant of or substitute for lard. During 1SS9, in tho seven states of Illinois, "Wisconsin, Minnesota, the Dakotas, Nebraska and Iowa, the to tal new railroad hues completed amounted to only G18 miles, while in the neighboring province of Manitoba, where railroad progress is free from some of the restrictions and disadvan tages imposed upon our own roads, tho new mileage for tho year was no less than 3G2 miles. Similarly in the first halt of 1S90, according to the rec ord presented by tho Engineering licics, the seven states named show a further addition of 2S9 miles. Leav ing the activity which prevails in tho Canadian northwest out of account, the largest amount of railroad build ing during ihe eighteen months in question was in Nebraska, where 278 miles, principally in the northern and western portions of the state, were constructed. Illinois comes next with 209 miles, and Minnesota is ext with 13G miles, though it is to be oted in this case that no new track kasljeenyetlaidin tho state during 1890, The same remark is to be ap plied to "Wisconsin, which state shows an increase of 109 miles, and to North Dakota, in which state only 18 miles of track wero laid in 18S9. South Dakota Jmb iacreasod its railway lino in tho yor and a half by 99 miles and Iowa toySfixriles. According to tho figures presented by tfee same authority, there are under eeekact or construction in the seven states in question 579 miles of new EMti, while tho new linos located or WMkr- mxyey aggregate over 2,000 53. As Laid Out by H. ROBB & PARSER, General Agents, RAILROAD BUILDING IN THE NORTE1VEST. It is, of course, well known that the railroad construction during the year 1889 showed a great decrease from the record of the year which immediately preceded it, says Bradstreets. In fact, a considerable portion of tho addi tional mileage which was constructed last year was, as also seems to have been tho case in 18S8, merely tho com pletion of lines commenced or pro vided for during the railroad building mania of 1886-87. The drop from 12, 000 miles of new road in 1887 to 5,000 miles last year is a large one. But even the explanation already referred to, that of tho completion of unfin ished lines, does not fully account for the entire amount of new building. It is to be noted, too, that tho greatest activity in this respect prevailed in a comparatively new field. Tho largest proportion of new lines built in 1889 was in the south Atlantic and gulf states, and consisted rather of feeders to old existing systems of road than of new and distinct railroad enter prises. The feature of the record of the railroad building of last year, as well as of the activity in that connection now in progress, is the falling off which is shown in the northwestern states. In fact, the avoidance of pro jects for extensions or additions to their present mileage is just as much in fashion on tho part of tho manage ment of the great western railroad system as "strategic" railroad building was three years ago. In the annual report of one of the leading western systems for 1889, issued not long ago, a prominent and emphatic position was given to tho statement: "No mileage was added to tho company's lines during the year, and it has no extensions, additional mileage, in progress." Not only are the effects of the ill-advised and excessive competi tive building of the last five years in the northwest still felt, but tho hostil ity of state legislatures and railway commissions, tho interference of tho national interstate commerce law with railroad charges and tho continuance of rate wars have united in checking any disposition to build new railroads or to add to tho mileage of tho exist ing systems throughout the section in question. The enormous consumption of to bacco in the United Statesis shown by the fact that taxes have been paid dur ing the past two years on 4,000,000,000 cigars, and the revenue from tobacco this year has been over 33,000,000, an increase of 2,000,000 over last year.
