SUNDAY NOVEMBER 2, 1S90
A sraxbooxtin-ektaii railway con
nection is the nspiraiion and prime
need of Astoria as the great seaport
of the Columbia. "With that it would
sit mistroes o the world's commerce,
lo exchange European with Asiatic
commodities. For when products
reach Vancouver, 33. 0., by rail from
the Est on route for Asia they must
cme down the gulf of Georgia, pass
out by the strait of Fuca and thence
co-nc by cape Flattery and opposite
to the mouth of the Columbia before
lbc reach a point where they can
cross over to Asia.
So too with the commerce from
Puset sound. Astoria has 500 miles
start in the race for this world's com
merce, mid therefore her aspiration is
for n transcontinental connection.
For llmt kind of a railroad she is will
ing to put up liberally. For that
rc.isou she would hail Mr. Hunting
ton as a deliverer it he would build a
railroad through the Nehalem to For
est Grove or Hillsboro whereby to tap
tho crest "Willamette valley, and at the
y?np time directly tap all of the trans
it ntijenUl systems at Portland.
So, too, she would respond with
k a alacrity to a road to Albany via
tho Tillamook coast if it were there
joined by the Great Northern system
or that of the Chicago & Northwest
ern through the Harney valley and
So, too, the response would be
hearty and satisfactory for a road to
Albany to connect there with the
Southern Pacific system if that sys
tem hnd a lino direct to Winnemucca
fror.i Albany, or if Mr. Huntington
would make that connection a con
dition of the subsidy. But without
such a transcontinental connection a
proposition for a subsidy for a road
via Tillamook to Albany would be
very disappointing and would scarcely
meet the response that would be
It might as well be understood fully
at once that, under the present condi
tion of things, the hopes of Astoria for
a railroad connection with the South
ern are in tlie Nehalem route and any
plan that leaves that line out of cal
culation will be defective because the
dominant sentiment of Astoria is for
th:.t line and that sentiment would be
left to the enterprise of some other
Kailboad prospects are quite fa
orablc at present and there is the
bt of reasons for believing that not
many days will elapse before a prop
osition will be presented to our citi
zens which will bo in accord with
their desires, and open up a way for
speedy commencement of work on the
construction of a through railroad.
Even now. there are capitalists in
Portland who have never wanted lo
sec a railroad to this city who have
been, by the logic of events,
forced lo change their views, and are
now willing to invest their money in
the building of a railroad lo Astoria,
kuowing that after it was built nearly
all the deep sea vessels which aro now
taken to Portland to load and unload
would slop at this port Time works
wonders and it Portland cannot have
all the ships come up there they
would much rather have them come
to Aslorin than go to tho Sound.
Orsi: in Washington they are pro
gressive in moro ways than one. Not
ah nc in the matter of building cities
ami railroads, but now they are trying
to secure ouough lodges and members !
of the A. O. TJ. W. lo entitle them to u!
nralo grand lodge of the order, in-
stead of sharing with Oregon in a:
grand lodge for both states. Hurrah;
for the new stale of "Washington, and
all honor to tho people for the wonder
ful energy they manifest in their rapid
march to success.
Port Towxsexd people are happy
over the prospect of tho location of a
steel works plant at their city, as they
Lave had an offer of the erection of
works there which will cost S750,000,
on condition that they raise a bonus ,
of S300,000. They have appointed aj
committee to raiso the sum, and are
already at work with good prospects of

Dr. Prentice "Will Cure tho First Case
Of Cross-Eyes and Epileptic Fits
Free On the Day of His
Arrival in Astoria.
A man well known in this community
writes tho following interesting letter:
"1 was chopping a stnnip four weeks
ago, when a flying chip struck me in
the eye; for a short time 1 was entirely
blind. Then partial sight returned
flnnin. T T11TliroH hnno nnil nnf!.t..n.l
to treat it at home, until ten days ago,
when I began to abandon hope of ever
seeing perfectly again, unless some
thing more than ordinary was done.
1 then counciled two of the loading
Oculists of Portland, who told me one
eye would have to be cut out to save
the other. It did not exactly suit me to
have my eye cut out, and so I sought
other council. I went to Dr. Prentice,
tho Oculist, then at Portland, and he
laughed at the idea of its being neces
sary to cut my eye out; I joined in the
laugh, for it was on my side. 1
have been free from pain since the first
daj''s visit to Dr. Prentice, and im
proved steadily, and am now entirelv
well again. I feel safe in saying that ff
Dr. Prentice cannot cure a case he will
always say so. Tnos. II. Foss,
Gray's River, Wash.
A Touching Scene Witnessed By a Portland
One week ago we received an invita
tion to witness a delicate surgical oper
ation on an eye. 'I he patient was the
17-year-old daughter of Harrison Hay.
For three years she had been blind in
both eyes with a cataract, and was
obliged to grope her way about in total
darkness. The patient, without taking
chloroform, submitted to the following
operation: fchewasnow ready for the
surgical part of the work, and we stood
in breathless anxiety as Dr. Prentice
placed the point of his knife at the
side of the eyeball, carefully touched
the point of the cornea, then the blade
entered the eye; we saw it pass through
the eye in front of the pupil and then
come out at the opposite side. It was
then drawn upward, and a cut made of
about one-third of the circumference of
the ball. Another instrument was then
passed in back of the pupil, and almost
on the instant the girl said: "Oh, Dr.
Prentice 1 can see you." This was
spoken in tones well calculated to bring
tears to one's eyes. From the time
the knife touched the eye until the
patient could see, it was just one min
ute. She was allowed to see those
about her for a moment, then thocj'e
was closed and bandaged.
In just one week after the operation
she came into our office and was able to
read our paper. She also wrote a letter
home, saying; "Dear parents, I can
see and am happy."
Mr. Jerome W. Campbell. General
Superintendent of the Willamette
Bridge Railway Co., saw this operation.
rrom a Tatlent TTbo TTas Cured Br Dr
Portland, Or., Oct. 7, 1890.
To Uie Suffering: For five years 1
have suffered with sleeplessness, ner
vous debility, irritation at the base of
the brain, and a terrible kidney disease.
1 had tried so many remedies that did
me no c;ood that at last 1 gave up all
hope of ever being a well man again. I
tried many prescriptions that were
said to be sure cures, and all failed.
There were many times during tho
past few years that I was obliged to lay
off from work from two weeks to three
months at a time. Lately 1 was run
ning down in health very rapidly, and
was alarmed. I contemplated leaving
thispaitof the country and trying to
see it I could not get relief elsewhere.
I must say that my faith in doctors was
about gone; but something lead me to
visit Dr. Prentice at the Esmond hotel.
I crowded in with the others and
waited my turn. He examined me, told
Mnc where my trouble was, and said he
could cure it without nipdicine. I can't
say that I really believed him, but
something in his manner led me to
trust him. He gave me no medicine at
all, yet from the day of my first visit I
began to improve r.ipidly. I now sleep
as sound as a child. My memory is
greatly improved. My kidney disease
and brain irritation are entirely well,
my appetite spienmu. xindlnowenjov
