fhe Principality iMakes a Remarkable
Passage Between this Port aiul
The average time taken by a vest-el
n the passage from Astoria to Liver
pool the past season has been a.luut
Jj days, which seems a very long vlme
is compared with th-e voyage of tiic
Jrltlsh ship Principality, which hah
,ust arrived at Liverpool, making th
passage In 97 days, and belii? ti.e
astest time sailed In the past twt
ears. The continued absence of thi
Juplca, which is now out 191 days, i
n strange contrast to this re-niai-kabii
voyage Just finished.
The Principality sailed from Asloiif

town March 25. Htr cargo co-nslst!

iiown here, having made half a doz
en voyages to this port. She was
generally rated as a very fair vessel,
.hough In 1S94 she waB 153 days In
making the run to Dunkirk. The Prin
cipality was built In Sunderland in
1SS5, and she halls from Liverpool.
She Is a four-masted iron vessel, reg
istered at 1699 tons. Captain E. Jones
has been her master for several years.
The best passage made since las!

shire, which ran from Astoria to Fal
mouth In 100 days. In 1S93 the .Mach.

In 93 days, having made a decidedly
long passege In coming this way. She

Mr. A. B. Hammond and Party
HfcMfcT THE SUBSIDY COMMITTEE
Told them What He Would do, and
StaUs His Proposition
Mr. Hammond Is here. He has the
money to build the Astorla-Goble rail
road ,and will build It providing the
people of this city get In and do their
share of the work. In other words,
the good people of Astoria must carry
out their part of the contract as faith
fully as has Mr. Hammond, and thfs
they will doubtless do.
Mr. A. B. Hammond, C. H-. McLeod,
of Montana, and X71wln Stone, of
Portland, arrived In the city on yes
terday morning's boat. They went dl
rectly to the Occident Hotel, where
shortly afterward the party were Join
ed by Mayor Kinney and other mem
bers of the subsidy committee. The
arrival of Mr. Hammond seemed to
awaken a new' life, not only In mem
bers of the subsidy committee, but In
the whole population of the city, foi
all day long little knots of men could
be Been standing on the street comers
discussing the situation, and without
exception their faces beamed with ex
peotancy and good humor.
A meelng of the subsidy committee
had been called for 11 o'clock, and
many citizens and members of the
press were Invited to be present. The
Chamber of Commerce hall was well
filled, when shortly after 11 o'clock,
Mr. Hammond 'and his associates en
tered. They were heartily received by
the assemblage. Upon invitation vi
Chairman Kinney, Mr. Hammond
briefly stated what he had returned to
Astoria for, what he could do, and
what he expected the people of Asto
ria to do before the work would go on.
He spoke of his tireless and fruitless
efforts to bring the Astorla-Goble rail
road proposition before the financial
men of the world's money centers, and
now the road would be built with indi
vidual money. It would be several
years before western railroads would
receive favorable consideration in New
York and London. He assured the
gentlemen present that he had the
money to go ahead with the work and
complete It, and from all appearances
there was no one In the room who
ioubted the statement. But there were
.ertaln changes in the existing ron
tract that Mr. Hammond wanted
.ihanged, as well as other matters at
tended to, which he had supposed were
.n proper shape, but whieh he finds
upon Investigation to be incomplete.
Jrlelly stated, Mr. Hammond's de
dres as stated to the committee, art,
The right of way from Astoria to
Joule; a modification of that part of
.he contract where he was required
io expend $50,000 per month; new deeds
to the subsidy whl.h would enable
him to handle the property -without
He gave as his reasons for wanting
a reduction In the amount of money to
be expended monthly, that It was an
Impossibility at certain seasons of the
year for one to expend the sum of
;50,000 per month on the work and do
It In an economical manner. The re
cent changes In the city charter was a
sulHclent cause, according to certain
legal opinions, for wanting the deedj
to date after the amendmed chartei
wont Into effect. If the -people of As
toria would igrant these changes then
work would go ahead and continue
until the road Is finished. He consid
er. 1 the Seashore road a nlde issue,
an-.l .would llrst aim to get transconti
nental connection before ta. Ing that
proposition up In a serious way. No
one In Astoria was more anxious to see
the railroad completed than he, and
every cent that was expended on the
enterprise was so muen dead money
until the road was In operation. By
wishing the sum to be expend cut
down from the original amount agreed
upon, did not necessarily mean that
less than that sum would be paid out
each month, for there would be times
When several times $50,000 would be I
expended In a month. He thanked his
hearers for their careful attention, and
When Mr. Hammond had finished
there was a moment of silence, and
then Chairman Kinney requested the
reflections of the various gentlemen
present. Several made brief remarka,
and to the point. They considered Mr.
Hammond'a proposition as being alto
gether reasonable, and one that should
meet with the prompt acceptance of
the committee. If there had ever been
any delay, it should atop now and for
ever. Messrs. !H. 'B. Parker, J. Q. A.
Bowlby, G. Wlngate, James W. Welch
Samuel Elmore. F. J. Taylor, C. R,
Thomson, Jno. A. Devlin, and Charles
Shlvely. were among the speakers. Af
ter this brief discussion, the meeting
adjourned -until 2:30 p. m., when It was
expected a committee appointed to
meet with Air. Hammond's attorneys,
Messrs. Strong and Fulton, for the
purpose of arranging for a moJitlca.
tlon of the contract, as proposed b
Mr. Hammond, would report.
The committee came in about 3
o'clock and announced that the attor
neys were busy ntaking the necessary
changes, but It would be late tie-fore
the work was completed. Thereupon
Mr. Kinney stated that It would be in
order from those present to express
their views regarding the manner In
which the right cf way could most
readily be secured and placed In such
shape that Mr. Hammond coukl go
ahead with the work. Mr. C. R Thom
son thought that a guarantee company
oould be iacorporated with, sufficient
capital to indemnify 3tfr. Hammond
in Bocurlife the right of way. He
! thought the capital stock should b
J $75,000, which would cover any outlay
j necessary In securing the right of way
from the terminus or the Seaahort
road to Gable. Messrs. F. J. Taylor,
II. C. Thompson, B. Vantusen and
others talked In the eame strain. Mr.
V. K. Warren, when asked by Chair
man Kinney Ito express his views on
the subject, sal'd he had not had time
to give the matter serious thought,
but it seemed to him some such plan
as suggested by Mr. Thomson would
be the most feasible. He thought that
through a corporation with the pro
posed capital, backed by men of suffi
cient standing, the desired end could
be reached more rapidly than In any
other way. Stock could be Issued, and
if the aubscrlbers did not bave tht
actual cash, they could deed to the
guarantee company a sufficient amount
of land to cover their subscription
Bald land to be redeemable up to a
certain date. He advised the commit
tee to act carefully but without delay.
Mr. Thomson jeugglesited that the
various attorneys of the city be asked
to co-operate with Mr. Hammond In
securing the right of way, and .that
they volunteer their services to that
end without pay, and that they pledge
themselves not to accept employment
in the Interest of any person or cor.
poratlon .resisting the condemnation,
proceedings for any portion of the
right of way. Mr. Taylor made a
motion that Mr. Thomson be appoint
ed a committee of one to draw up such
an agreement, and seaure the signa
tures of the attorneys. Mr. Welch
seconded the motion and upon being
put to a vote It was unanimously car
ried. Tht meeting adjourned directly
afterward until 10 o'clock this morn
ing. Mr. Thomson lost no time in
getting his agreement realdy, and up tc
a late hour last night had received the

Mr. Hammond was seen last even
ing by an Astorlan reporter. He had
little to say, other than what has al
ready been published regarding his in
tentions. He is still the same enthu
siastic gentleman regarding Astoria's
future who left here four months ago
for the East with the subsidy con
tract in his pocket, and regarding the
future of the city he talked freely to
"The citizens of Astoria can rest
assured," he said, "that their seaport
is not unheard of in the East; in fact,
It seems as familiar a name to the
people of the Atlantic coast cities as
is any other place on the coast. Tht
liulldlng of a railroad to transconti
nental connection Is going to attract
a large number of people this way,
ai.d many of them will be men who
will invest money in real estate, if they
will not in railroads. Personally, 1
cannot think of a city with brighter
prospects before it than has Astoria,
and if the people here will pull oft
their coats and put their shoulders to
the Wheel, the place Is sure to go
ahead. Owing I tV (the . unparalleled
financial depression It has been a hard
struggle to even get the attention
of Eastern financiers on the Astorla-
Goble project, and I can assure you
I met with but little encouragement
Predictions of fallura were more of
ten expressed by men who are known
throughout the land as shrewd finan
ciers, but in the face of all this Asto
ria shall see her railroad completed.
The money that will build th? line

Mr. Hammond has a very warm s. 01
in his heart for Astoria and her po pic
He says there is good metal h:iv, am
ine now activity will develop it Inu
usefulness. He believes tho rfe -pl
hero will join hands -with hl:n and galr
for Astoria the proud position In the
commercial world to which siie right
fully belongs. With the citizens unit
ed, he thinks there can be nothing turn
up that will give Oregon's only seaport
a 1-ackset. Industries must be lndu ea
to come here and give employment tc
the laboring classes and this will be
brought about largely by the efforts
of the citizens. In speaking of Mr. J
C. Stanton, Mr. Hammond paid that
the ieople of Astoria should feel gi-ale
ful to him for the manner In which he
has worked for the success of the rail
road. For two years he has done noth
ing 'but talk of Astoria and try ana
bring the raiiiroad scheme before cap
Itallsts ,who might be Induced to Invest
their money In the enterprise. His
whole existence seemed to dwell In this
project, and it has been the one am
bition of the declining years of thlf
man that Astoria should have, rail
road connection with fhe outside world.
Mr. Hammond will probably spend
a greater part of the time In Astoria
with his family during the construe,
t'.on of the railroad, and later may
make this city his permanent resi
dence. Today the committee will meet at
10 o'clock, at which time it is expected
some plan will be adopted for securing
the right of way. Mr. Hammond Is
prepared to meet ail options and was
ready yesterday to take up the Go-ble
survey, which called for a payment of
514.00J, only that the rights haa Dy the
Joule Company had expired over a
ydr ag-o by limitation, hence there re
mained nothing to transfer. There
need be but little de'ay if the commit
tee get down to work and this It Is
expected they will do.

There Is a great deal of speculation
here as to the cause of the Cuplca's
long voyage from Liverpool, but peo
ple who know the vessel and her mas
ter do not doubt that she will arrive.
The statement made at Astoria, anil
printed in the papers yesterday morn
ing, to the effect that Ihe vessel Is
surely lost, Is certainly uncalled for,
as neither the man who gave the re
port nor. his firm have any connection
with the ship, except tWat they are In
Ihe same line of business as the con.
slgn9?s of the Cuplca. Captain J. A.
Brown says 'he will not give up the
vesssl until she has been out at lea3t
210 days, and she is only out 190 days
today. The Cupicti Is a slow sailer,
and may have been delayed off the
Horn or caught In the doldrums. Cap
tain Evans, of the Gantoc't Rock, had
such an experience coming up the
ci.ast, and got In a calm, when for 42
days he only made GO miles. The Cu
plca made a bad beginning, for she
