The tables are turned on the people
of Astoria. In place of the stereotyped
question "What Is Hammond going to
do?" the Inquiry now Is, "What will
Astoria do? No man who heard Mr.
Hammond' plain anlfl buslnees-llke
statement at the subsidy committee
meeting yesterday can entertain any
shadow of dou'bt as to his Intention
and ample ability to place Astoria on
tk more than even footing with her
envious rivals on the Sound and else
where. The responsibility of determin
ing when and how It sha'l be done is
now shifted from Mr. Hammond's
shoulders onto those of the property
owners and business men of Astoria.
The problem of whether they can get
the. railroad this year, or when they
can get tt. Or whether they shall get
It at all, depends for Its solution sole
ly on the enterprise and action of the
people of Astoria. The piteous plea
that Portland obstructs the building
o the road; that the men connected
with It are mere go-betweens, without
financial ability themselves or relia
ble backing, or that they are seeking
only to get a foot-hold In order to
tie up operations in the Interest of
other roads, can no longer be urged.
Mr. Hammond has succeeded In rais
ing every dollar of money necessary
to complete the road. He Is his own
principal, and It Is largely his own
money that he proposes to spend In
the enterprise. In other words, he is
fully authorized, thoroughly squlpped,
and entirely ready to begin and finish
the construction of a railroad from
Astoria to Ooble, and now only awaits
the assurance of Astoria's ability to
perform her part of the contract to
go ahead. But how long he can b
thus kept on waiting orders Is a ser
ious and Impressive question. He pro
poses to do business and Insists that
the people of Astoria shall also do
likewise. It will be their fault, not
his, if the large sum of money he has
accumulated Is allowed to lie Idle for
any length of time, Instead of 'being at
once actively employed in giving As
toria an outlet to the world. There Is,
however, no oocasion for any consider
able delay. With the confluence and
enthusiasm now manifested on all
sides, the subsidy committee has only
to strike while the Iron Is hot, and
wonders can be accomplished In a
week, ten days, or thirty days. If the
citizens of Astoria bestir themselves,
and each Individual makes It a point
to lend whatever of aid and encourage
ment Ilea In his power to the efforts
of the subsidy committee, the great
Columbia grain fleet of the year 1895-6
will load Its cargoes at Astoria's
Bomo Idea of the prosperity that
Astoria may reasonably expect to en.
Joy Immediately following the com
pletion of our transcontinental connec
tion Is to be obtained from a reading
of the following portion of an able ed
itorial In yesterday's Oregonlan: "Dur
ing the wheat season now drawing to
a close, the superiority of the Colum
bla river and the city of Portland ai
the export center of the raclflo North
weat has fceun fully maintained. In
fact, the -proportion of the crops of
Oregon, Washington, and Idaho ex
ported front this city shows a gratify
ing increase over former years. He
twei-n $0 and 10$ ships of large average
rvglster have been chartered or loaded
at this port, as against 30 to 35 sim
ilar vessels from Puget Bound."

ss to the right of
way, It should foe rneiribred ttiat the
jn-ople of Astoria must bear the ex
pmife of procuring the right of way,
and It Is safe to say that the first
shovelful of dirt thrown, with the ex
oitrncnt following Mr. Hammond's
J 'live preparations for the work,
n i;ll add moo per cent to the sup
i ..Til value of every piece of tand re
