rF cxj ASTOBIA. OKEQON: SUNDAY... THE PROPHECY FULFILLED. Tke state pilot scliooner Gov. Moody is a total -wreck on the rugged rocks ot North Head. The Portland Board o Trade aud the TJ. P. Co. are relieved o the charge wkkh iras unwelcome to them as an fflSpHmale child. They -wanted the pilotage but not the .schooner. The original program of carrying the pilots on" the tugs can now be car tied out without opposition. The last vestige of the pilotage serv ice which was instituted to protect the commerce of the Columbia is de stroyed. During January and February, 1S89, while the notorious "pilot bill'' was before the Oregon legislature, Tnn Astokiax opposed the passage ot that bill with what ability it possessed on the ground that it was fatal to the ef fioienoy of the pilot service at the mouth of the Columbia, and against every principle of public policy. The scheme to cut down the wages of the experienced pilots who bad earned their invaluable Knowledge of the winds and currents aud coast in thia locality by the hardship aud ex perience of years, was denounced as au unwise move and one that would drive the old and tried bar pilots out of business here. The Portland papers referred to the bar pilots as a ring of thieves and ex tortionists that it was necessary io break up before pilot charges could be reduced to a reasonable figure. It was agreed by all parties that Qq pilot schooner should be maintained. Yet the history of the Gov. ZIoody since the passage of the "pilot bill," on, February 15th, '89, has been one of rapid decline and continued idleness until this last scene in which the pilot schooner is sent out to destruction, mastered by a man who had no knowl edge of the currents and coasts of this locality. The loss of the schooner is a trhial matter compared with the injury which this port will suffer by reason ot the wreck. Those who are not fully informed as to the facts will look with suspicion on a port where is wrecked a vessel which was maintained to insure the safety of shipping and which was sup posed to be manned and officered by the most experienced and trusty mariners on the coast. Shippers will reason that a port which is unsafe for the pilot schooner k not safe for commercial shipping. The injury done to the reputation of this port by this unfortunate cir cumstance far exceeds the insignificant gain from false economy demanded end obtained by Portland and O. E. fc N. influence. The evidence of the master of the pilot schooner is that he was not ac quainted with the currents about the mouth of the Columbia. The question is, why was a stranger to these waters given charge of the pilot schooner ? Were there no tried and competent pilots at this port? Perhaps there has been a saviug of wages. The Bvrvice has been injured and The Astoriak's prophecy has been fulfilled. Co-orrsATioK with CoL Taylor by the owners of large tracts of land on Young's bay and river would go a long way towards extending a railroad towards the "Willamette valley. The Bay Kailway Company have a standard gauge hue built into this city, and a franchise from the city which is very valuable. It is a comparatively easy matter to extend that road around the bay, across Young's river, thence across the Lewis aad Clarke and on towards Hillsboro. Halted effort would push it ahead rapidly, and inside of two years Asto ria would have a thorough railway. Tke year 1892 maybe an unusual one for celebration of anniversaries. la 1492 Columbus discovered Amer ica; in 1592 was discovered Pugot Bound; in 1792 for the first time came a Teasel, the Columbia, into our noble river. So that the year 1892 will be the rounding to completion of the century and centuries of three great events in the world's history. NliUt all the raUroad-buildiug on this coast at present is through a new and comparatively unsettled country, where the railroad companies had previously secured the ownership of large tracts of land. The inference is plain, and the lesson should be needed. SssrozxTS of Astoria are beginning to realixe the fact stated in these col um yesterday, that in order to se cure the construction of a railroad to -this city they must make powerful ef forts 8nd give largely in the way of lend before a road will come here.
