which? he has no 3outt will be done
when 'tee ees them. , He and his new
assoctateai will then put in their lndi'
vidual money and faulild the road, as
no bonds can be eoild on any new rail
road project now. Mr, Hammond and
party go to Aatorla Thursday night.
As to Oregon Pacific matters, tht

Mr. Haimmond Talks Freely of the A-toria-Gohle
Portland, March 27. A. B. Ham-
mond, the (Montana capitalist interest
ed In the Astoria-Coble railroad, ar.
rived in this city tonight.' Mr. Ham
mond will leave for Astoria tomorrow
night to meet the railroad committee
of twenty-one of that city, and, wfth
J. C. Stanton, he .will confer with Its
members regarding the construction
of the Astorta-Gtyble road.
When seen by an Oregonian represen
tative, Mr. Hammond, outlined the pur
pose of his visit, and also said that he
expected to tjecome a citizen of Oregon,
an'd would bring 'his family ihere to re
side. As to the 'building of the pro
posed Aatoria-Goble road, he said:
"The option "given to Mr. Bonner and
myself, in which Mr. Stanton and I,
W. Kimball, of Atlanta, Qa., were also
associated, could not 'be financed. This
was partly due to restrictions contain
ed in the agreement, tut more partic.
ularly on account of the present con.
d.lon of Che money market, and the
'Impossibility of now placing any kind
of new securities. In consequence of
this, parties who were associated with
me In the enterprise iave withdrawn,
I have great faith in the project of
building the road,' and am prepared
to carry out the work myself, provid
ing the Astoria people will make some
concessions that are now imperative.
"The proposed road will be 66 miles
In length, and will require the expendi
ture of about $2,000,000 to construct It.
It will have to be toullt by men putting
up their own money, engaging In the
project on their own individual respon
sibility, and under suoh changed con
ditions the people of Astoria must take
that under contrfderatlon. The require.
menta as to time of construction anxl
personal guarantees that Astoria will
carry out Its part of the contract muxt
also be considered.
''Mr. Stanton, who is now in Astoria,
will be Identified with me in any fu
ture operations I may undertake In
the construction of the road."
Regarding the Oregon Pacific road
which Hammond and his buslnesa asso
ciate, Bonner, purchased some weeks
ago for 1100.000, Mr. Hammond aaid:
"Until the supreme court decides up-
not In a jxsitlon to do anything.
the action of Judge iFullerton In con.
firming the sale to us Is upheld, the
road will be put In first-class physical
condjuoin, the bridge aii thoroughly
repaired, and then the extension of
the road .will be taken under considera
tion. The extension of that road would
develop a great lumber Interest and
would make it a valuable piece of prop-
erty, if properly handled and needed
"The first extension will be to Inde
pendence Prairie, twelve miles east ct
the present terminal, where it would
connect with a wagon road from Prlne-1
vllle and command the trade of East.
em Oregon. Valley connections will
also be made In due time, if the decis
ion of the supreme court is favorable."
MR 6TANTON HERE.
He Says That Work on the ltoad Will
It has been a long time since a hap-
pier lot of people have roamed the
streets of Astoria than were Ho be seen
yesterday. Mr. J. C. Stanton, repre-
aonfclnir Mr. Hammond, arrived on yes-
terday mornlnig's boat and soon the in.
formation was given out that actual
work on tfhe construction of the road
would commence on Saturday next. Of
course this was cheerful newB for every
ne. and was the chief topic of conver?
sation during the whole day.
Mr. Stanton is accompanied hy his
wife, and they have apartments at th
Occident. He looks as hale and hearty
as when here four monldhs ego, and is
as enthusiastic over the future of As.
torla as he was on the day he left foi
the East In company with Mr. Ham
mond Immediately after signing the
contract with the subsidy committee.
In conversation with an Astorian re
porter Mr. Stanton said:
"I am glad to get back to Astoria
and announce that the long-talked-of
and equally lorag-ihoped-for railroad will
be built. Since leaving here In Novem
ber, I have spent the greater part of
the time In New York In company with
Mr. Hammond, who, by the way, Is
the greatest and most determined
worker it has ever been my pleasure to
meet. He is one man in ten thousand,
and l doubt If another could have been
found Who would have accomplished
wihat he has in connection with this
project, . He will! probably.be herein-
Saturday or Monday, and therf can tell
you more about his f iture plans. I can
positively state, .however, that actual
work on the construction of the road
will commence on Saturday at Tongue
Point, and thence east. One thing is
certain: Work once started, and there
will be no Stop until the road Is fin
tohxd. As soon as Mr. Hammond ar
rives then the details of the work will
be gone over and he will decide what
will be done."
"Is It a fact, Mr. Stanton," asked the
reporter, 'tlhat you were not Interview
ed by a newspaper man at Portland,
as stated in an evening paper of thli
"Weill, I must say I have not seen
any of your evening papers, but can
say positively tiha't I was Interviewed
by a reporter for the Oregonian, and
the manner In which I was quoted in
that paper, also in your own dispatch
from Portland, is correct. The report-
er made a mistake, Hhough, In what he
paid outstde of the Interview: that Mr.
Hammond would ask for some changes,
In speaking further on the subject
of the railroad construction, Mr. Stan,
ton eitated tfhat a corps of engineers
would start out today and cross-sec-
on the appeal brought before ft we
tion the line near Tongue Point, where prisoners, and return the lands appro
the work will commence. It was at prlated for the natives under he name
first intended to commence the work
with a pile driver, but on account of
being unable to secure a sufficient num.
ber of piles in time for the work, It
was decided to start through the meek
of Tongue Point.
As soon as Mr. Hammond arrives
he Seashore road matter iwfll be taken
up and the first payment of 130,000
will probably be made. It Is under
stood that Mr. Hammond (has associat
ed himself with some very substantial
New Tork men, anj Is prepared to
meet all options.
Mr. Jamleson, a civil engineer of
Portland, accompanied Mr. Stanton
ytsterday and will take charge of the
preliminary survey. It is understood
that Chief Engineer Kennedy, of the
O. R. and N will be chief engineer of
the new road.

It Is Thought in Official Circles that
His Wound Is Very Serious.
Washington, March 27. Although
notfhlng Is said at either the Japanese

tion of LI Hung Chang, it Is known
that advices have been received In of
ficlal circles that serious results are
apprehended from the wound. In fact
Information has been such as to cau
some discussion as to the effect his
death mkgbt have on the situation. It
Is believed it will prevent Japan frorr

it was dltscoveml that the reluctanc

power upon an amDassaaor was caus.
ed by his dread that the Japanese con'
dillons of peace would be overwhelm.
ingly oppressive, and that It would
therefore be unsafe to authorize any
delegate to discuss them on his ow
responsibility. "With genuine desire to
facilitate progress, the Japanese gov'
ernmenlt decided shortly after the de
ptwture of Ithe unacceyuable messen
gers, Chang and Bkao, to waive a point
which they had' previously maintained
with firmness, and to relieve their ad
vsnmry of the worst of his apprehen

POET OF THE SIERRAS.
Joaquin Mliller Returns Suddenly From
' . ; the Hawaiian Islands.
San Francisco, March 27. Joaquin
Miller, the poet of the Sierras, arrived
from Honolulu today, where he hat
been for several months preparing, a
history of Hawaii for an Eastern pub
lishing bouse. The poet left Honolulu
suddenly with no otlher baggage than
a copy of hils poems. His Intended de
parture was kept secret as he says hs
was afraid the officers of the govern
ment would put him in prison. Miller
Is very bitter against the men in con
trol In Hawaii He denounces the
treatment accorded to political prison
ers as barbarous in the extreme, and
says that men are dying In prison foi
want of air and proper food. He pre
diets that a filibustering expedition will
be organized 'to Honolulu and rescu
the political prisoners. When asked If
he was done wt)h Hawaii, the poet
"I 'have not beaun. I am going to
wait and see who goes down there to
liberate those men. PosBllily they may
be set alt liberty wben their captors

cowards. But If they do not liberate

authoritatively that Governor McKin

'. Prices 25 per cent.
Chicago, March 27. The Post says:
Prices of all kinds of tnat w!H be
higher this summer than they have
been for ten years past. Even the high
prices which iwere made by some deal,
ers during the World's iFalr period will
be exceeded by tbe figures asked fur

It Is not probable that much relief
will come before fall. Prices have
already advanced about 25 per cent bji.1
an additional advance of about I'm

cause of this is the Bhort supply of
