of the lamp where they are sealed by

been previously exhausted from the

properly placed, so that when the
neck or stem of the lamp is pushed
into a socket, connection is made with
tho small wires running from the

THE NEHALEX COAL MINESi
What an Expert Thinks of Their Value
Tho following is from the Nehalem
Journal of tho 15th inst,and is of
Last week tho Journal scribe was
pleased to see H. Banfield saunter
into town as though ho iad plenty of
leisure, and in a short time had the
pleasure of listening to a long and
learned discourse on the present mer
its and future prospects or tho JSena
lem coal fields. Mr, Banfield had just
returned from an extended visit to
the coal lands, where ho has been do
ing good work in prospecting and de
veloping some new veins.
Probably Mr. Banfield is better ac
quainted with the Pebble creek fields
than any other expert who visits this
region, and his opinion is of value.
His remarks may be summed up as
The value of Nehalem coal as fuel
is much greater than has been stated
by other parties who have given the
matter some little attention. Com
parison with coals from Washington,
southern Oregon and California, is
decidedly iu favor of Columbia county
The last vein discovered by expert
Banfield is a nine foot seam, of a
flinty texture and contains a still
larger percentage of fixed carbon than
the best specimens shown heretofore.
Coal which has been exposed to the
action of tho atmosphere for an in
definite length of time, still presents a
smooth surface and a hard flint-like
resistance to the hammer. And when
tho endless extent of deposits is taken
into consideration, it is wonderful to
think the coal beds havo so long laid
In response to a question as to when
tho mines would bo opened and
worked Mr. Banfield stated that it
was a question which could not be de
finitely answered. Where there is
such a large amount of money at stake
the matter requires much timo and
thought But that the coal beds
would soon 1)0 thoroughly developed
Mr. Banfield felt assured. A synch
cato of Ohio coal men were figuring
on tho scheme of working tho fields on
an extensive scale, and Mr. Banfield
was coufident that the result of his re
cent trip will havo tho desired effect of
brininnc capital and experience to
bear on the- matter at an early date.
'Don't worry about tho railroad.
That is all right and tho 3,000,000 of
good English or American money will
bo forthcoming in duo season and
will put the road through to a cer
tainty. It is of no use," continued
Mr. Banfield, "to fret and worry over
the railroad aspect: tho road will come.
It is hard to say when, but you may
rest easy on that point Jnst keep on
rustling for the town and get ready
for livelier times than your imagina
tion ever pictured."
Other information of a confidential
nature was conveyed which was more
inspiring than new wine, and more
encouraging than if tho old mill out
fit had all been hung.

AsxoniA, Aug. 15, 1890.
On April 16, 1890, ten- days before
Mr. Huntington's arrival, five of the
directors of the Astoria and South
Coast Bailroad company, acting as the
board, entered into a contract for the
completion of the Seaside division to
the Grimes house. It was a tripar
tite agreement; J. H. Smith, the first
party; the Astoria and South Coast
Bailroad company, the second party;
and the Pacihc Construction company
(really Win. Beid), the third party.
T . nu?tv'rf A cBrtTir a X- H- wnp rf f ft1
that tho directors had 35 days in
which to pay off tho indebtedness, as
the chief engineer had reported the
completion of tho road. A more ac
curate statement would have been that
it was the consummation of a scheme
whereby Wm. Beid scooped over a
half-million dollars out of the road,
and became its virtual owner without
any substantial consideration. Is it
any wonder that Mr. Huntington said
tho Astorians could not carry out their
promise of turning over to him tho
Seaside division free of liens and in
cumbrances, and therefore ho coultL
not undertake to build us a road?
Let us see, then, how this scheme
was laid and carried out I am but a
common granger, but I believe I conld
have done batter mjself. Even old
Farmer Jones, up in Marion, who has
been put under guardianship, didn't do
so badly. He fooled away only 10,000,
while our directors have made a seem
ing gift to Beid of over half a million.
The original agreement with tho Pa
cific Company, dated June 22, 1SS9,
wjis to issue to ic S10.000 in stock per
mile, upon tho completion by that
companyof the first ten miles oa the
road to HiUsboro. and to pay it 822,
500 per mile out of the sale of bonds
for each mile constructed by it on
The agreement of April 16, 1890,
provided that tho A. & S. C. B B. Co.
and the Pacific Construction Co., were
to pay J. H. Smith $31,000 for com
pleting tho road.from Young's bay to
Mrs. Byrds, consisting chiefly of track
laying. To secure that payment tho
A. & S. 0. Co. was to issue to I. W.
Case as trustee, $391,000 worth of its
first mortgage bonds with all interest
coupons thereto attached, which
is at the rate of 622,500 per milo for
the seventeen and one-halt miles be
tween Young's bay and Grimes'
houps; and the A. &. S. C. B. B. Co.
agreed that no other of the first
mortgage bonds should beissued un
til all the money due SmitJi under
the contract was fully paid, (thus
making their's practically a prior
lien); also to transfer to said Case as
trustee all of its unpaid stock sub
scriptions and all the real and per
sonal property standing in the name
of J. W. Conn including tli3t deeded
by G. K. Grimes and G. Bradbury;
also to issue to said Case as trustco its
stock for every milo to Grimes' house
at $10,000 per mile. If the A. & S. C.
B. B. Co. pays the $34,000 in thirty
five days then Case, trustee, shall
convey to the Pacific Construction
company all of said stock and bonds
as its own absolute property to be
credited on their contract of 1889 at
$352,000 cash for so much completed
road; and Case to convey to tho A. &
S. O. B. B. Co. the said land and un
paid stock. If the A. & S. C. Co. fails
to pay tho $34,000 then the Pacific
Construction company may pay it, and
take all of said stock, bonds, lauds
fcc as its own.
The agreement further provides that
for completing the road from Mrs.
Byrd's to Grimes' house the Pacific
Construction Co. shall pay Smith
S12.760 and all of tho said bonds and
stock of that company to be security
for its payment The bonds amount
to $391,000 and tho stock to $175,000,
making a total of $666,000 which Mr.
Beid gets, subject to Smith's lien of
$12,700; for of course the unpaid stock
and lands held by Case, trustee, arc
more than ample to pay off tho $34,
000. Of course, every one knows tho A.
& S. C. B. B. Co. ha3 built most.of tho
'Seaside division. Yet, on the pretext
that it ha3 been built by tho Pacific
Construction Co., Beid gets tho entiro
road; for these first mortgage bonds
and a majority of the issued stock
make him the owner. Ho can thus af
ford to lose the $50,000 he has put
into the'Hillsboro branch and let that
go by the board. He has a handsome
fortune in tho Seaside division,
and the Astorians may whistle
for a through connection. Why
should he jeopardize his half million
by extending tho road further? I do
not wish to stir them "to mutiny and
rage." The law does not put directors
intho pen for a mistake of judgment,
but it shonld bo so that it would re
quire a verdict of lunacy to prevent it
in gross cases of abuse of trust It is
lucky, however, that these directors
are but trustees and an injunction can
prevent the carrying out of this gross
breach of their trust Mark this! Tho
payment by tho A. & S. C. B. B. Co.
of the $34,000 works no benefit to
them except to give back to them their
land and unpaid subscriptions. Mark,
also! This issue of stock and bonds
was expressly on account of tho Sea
sido division work and not for that on
tho Hillsboro line.
P. S. Judge Taylor who was
present at that meeting of April
16, 1890, voted and protested against
the proceeding, and shortly thereafter
resigned from the directory.
