THE TltUTn SUPPORTED.
The advantage of loading vessels at
Astoria is apparent to anyone who has !
a correct idea of economy, and the
urgent necessity of making arrange
ments that "will admit of vessels dis
charging and loading their entire
cargo at -wharves in this city, is sup
ported by the opinion of honest
owners as well as masters of vessels
that are subjected to the heavy ex
pense entailed by being dragged over
land to Portland where dock room and
facilities for unloading are insufficient.
The Sliete Donard, which arrived
in Portland last Monday, discharged
500 tons of coal for use in this city.
She was still loaded too deep to clear
the bars in the river between here and
Portland, aud 150 tons more was light
ered, and the vessel proceeded to Port
land, drawing but eighteen feet six
inches, and yet she stuck on a sand
bar several hours. She was finally
towed to the gas company's wharf, aud
will discharge the remainder of her
cargo. Here was the extra expense of
discliarging the coal from the ship to
the barge, and handling it again from
the barge to the wharves, involving
the use of machinery and an expensive
class of labor. Then there is the pay
or the deputy inspector to accompany
the lightered cargo, and the extra ex
pense of towage.
The Norfolk Island would have
b?en towed to Portland day before
yesterday, but the Willamette Chief
became disabled and was compelled to
return for repairs, while ihc lionila
comes down for the vessel, which has
discharged nearly 330 tons to enable
her to go overland to the inland me
tropolis. The JSonila was expected
down yesterday to tow the Norfolk
Inland up the creek but was delayed
for some reason. Captain Thomas
w.ismuch annoyed at the delay but
was somewhat resigned when he
learned Uiat the Sliece Donard was
ocenpyiug the dock where he should
discharge, so that he might as well lie
heroin the river as at Portland, so
long as he w;is unable to dis
charge his coal. During this
vexatious delay of several
days the vessel as well as the barge
of lightered coal is under the double
expense of two deputy inspectors, for
Uncle Sam is mighty particular to ,
have foreign imports closely watched !
by his faithful agents. Then will j
come the same expensive towing and
relmudliug of the lightered coal. And
.. " , I
so it goes year after year, and 1
the .people that use the coal and those j
who bnni tho gas lhat'is made from it; !
tho people who raise the grain that j
loads the ship or furnish the Hour that
mnkes her cargo have to pay for all
the cxixmse that lias lecn fooled away
in an endeavor to use a mudhole for a
While Astoria has no railroad this
slate of affairs will probably eontinnc,
and it is -useless to call attention to
the unfortunate facts except to demon
strate the great advantage that a rail
road would bring not only to Astoria,
but to the whole country that fur
nishes grain and produce that natural
ly would come down the valley of the
Columbia river to Astoria, to then he
loaded on large deep-sea ships of twice
the capacity of those now partially
loading in the mudbound iutcrior.
Captain Thomas, of the Norfolk
Island, said to an Astokiax reporter,
' It 1 could gel a cargo of grain here
I would take it at a dollar or a dollar
and a quarter per ton lass Hum I
would take it at Portland." There is
a difference or from Sl,003 to S'2,000 on

. The platform adopted yesterday by
the Democratic state convention of
California at San Jose, is full of the
usual high sounding, patriotic and
catching sentences which characterize
these documents. They always prom
ise everything which might possibly
be desired, but Bomehow the grand
things generally fall short of comple
tion. By the way, it might possibly
be admitted that political parties gen
erally are very much alike in the
preparation and adoption of enticing
platforms, which are frequently more
or less delusive. The old adage might
be slightly altered to read "All is fair
in politics and war."
Railroad articles appear to be on
tho increase, and two more appear on
the local page this morning. One is a
second letter from " Granger," in
which ho criticizes several sentences
in Reid's reply to his former letter.
The other is from Judge Taylor, who
denies that he had anything to do
with "Grangers" letter, and at the
same time makes some plain comments
on the situation of affairs. They are
both very interesting communica
tions, and it this correspondence con
tinues, people will have an oppor
