THE MASS MEETING.
The Subsidy is Still Incomplete
The mass meeting at Liberty hr.n yes
terday was not as well attended as was
expected, those present being for the
mast part property owners who had al
ready subscribed to the subsidy. Few
of the men who have been holding off
appeared, and only a few deeds wer
received, among them being ono from
Howell Lewis, who made a trip into
town for tho purpose of putting up
deed to fifteen acres of fine property on
the John Day, and Charles Rogers, the
druggist, who presented a deed to 2i
per cent of his real property.
Mayor Kinney made a short address,
stating what was expected and what
was absolutely needed to complete the
subsidy In the way of inside lots.
stirring speech was also made by C.
R. Thomson, who appealed strongly to
the audience to lend their moral and
financial support to tho undertaking,
which meant so much for all.
Judge Taylor and O. Wlngate also
urged upon those present the import
ance of completing the subsidy as rap-
Idly as possible.
Martin Dillon also made a few point
ed and timely remarks.
Blank notes were then handed round
and a call made upon owners of two or
more lots to guarantee the payment of
as much as their means would permit
the money to bo collected when the first
engine rolls Into Astoria from the tracks
of a transcontinental road. A number
of these were signed, tho - various
amounts promised aggregating some
thing less than $2,000.
After the mass meeting adjourned the
subsidy committee met, and after ascer
taining the number of Inside lots sub
scribed, concluded to keep the subsidy
open Indefinitely. It was the opinion
that many more lots must be raised be
fore anything could bo done.
All owners of small parcels of land will
be asked to execute promissory notes In
lieu of land subscriptions, and further
efforts will be made to raise additional
