N0II? DOWN TO WORK
The Contract Has Been Accept
ed by the Committee.
THEY WILL SIGbl IT MONDAY.
Great Things in Stoic for Astoria
Says Mr. Hannnoiid-Work to
Bepin at Once.
The railroad question la virtually set
tled, at least in so far as ejy differ
ences there might have been between
Mr. Hammond and the subsidy com
mittee of twenty-one. Three meetings
were held yesberday and at the after
noon meeting Mr. Hammond present
ed his amended contract, and It was
read to the committee nd afberwards
thoroughly discussed by them. Before
the contract was signed the subsidy
committee members seemed at sea re.
pardlng just what air. Hammond re
quired of them in the matter of guar,
anteelng the right of way and subsidy.
They discussed the plan, as suggested
ytsterday, of incorporating a guaran
tee subsidy and right of way company,
with a capital stock of $100,000, said
company to receive sutecrlpitlons from
every responsible man In town if pos
sible. The Idea was for this company
to guarantee Mr. Hammond the right
of way as requested, and furnish a
clear title to the sufbsldy deeds. When
Mr. Hammond presented Wimself at the
meeting this plan wa-s made known to
him. He thought 'the guarantee com
pany was a good thing, and that the
right of way could perhaps be pur
chased for half the amount of th
capital stock proposed; yet he would
prefer to take the names of a few
of Astoria's best business men and
property holders, and they could take
the guarantee company.
When the committee read the con
tract over and saw that dts provisions
It they Btgned, really bound them to
guarantee Just wh;it Mr. Hammond
had been talking rcu, 4 was smooth
sailing and It did not take them long
to decide to sign. it. It was agreed
that a meeting would be held on Mon
day, at wihlch time the contract would
be signed. Several members who are
going out of town itoday will sign It
before they go. The changes from the
original contract are really slight. Mr.
Hammond is not required to spend
any specified amount per month; he
has three years to complete the con
tract; the subsidy, or at least 95 per
cent Is guaranteed to be clear and wl'th
perfect title; he Is to have a clear
right of way from the west end of a
draw bridge to be built on Young's
bay, thence to Goble. Tnere are a few
other minor changes tout not Import
ant. Mr. Hammond agrees to com
mence work at once, and to keep it
up without stop, until tne welcome
itjund of the locomotive whistle Is
hoard in Astoriia. He will start en
gineers out at once over the line, who
will work In conjunction with the com
mittee to tie appointed to secure the
right of way. This It Is thought, will
take about six weeks, and then dirt
will fly. In the meantime a great deal
of work remains to be done in the
way of securing new deeds, abstracts,
Mr. Hammond was feeling In the
best of spirits last night, and a great
strain hail been removed from his
mind. He promises the people of As
toria a surprise "before ithey are many
months older, and Is here to work with
them for the upbuilding of the city.
He goes to Portland tomorrow night
and frm there to Corvallis to look
after Oregon Paciilc affairs. He will
return here In about a week.

The accident was the worst In the
history of trolley car roads In this vl
clnity, and was due In part to a panic
among the plaasengers, who crowded
about the conductor and grlpman on
the unmanageable car.' As it passed
on to the grade leading down the
mountain, Grlpman Kelts applied the
brakes, but the dhaln snapped. He then

His shouts caused a panic and the
passengers made a rush for the plat

mountain at a mile a minute. The
conductor shouted to the passengers to
go back, so he might apply the brake,
but was not heeded. The passengers
then Jumped for their lives.
A BIG DEFTCIT.
Watfhlngiton, March 30. Contrary to
the expectations of the officials of tha
treasury, the receipts for the month of
March will again fall below the ex
penditures. The amount, however, Is
crtly about $234,000. The exiess of ex
penditures for nine months of the pres
ent fiscal year are $3ti,500,UOO, and this
amount will almost certainly be In
creased by $5,000,000 during April,
which will leave a deficit of about $42,
000,000 on May 1st. During May and
June, however, great things are ex
pected from the income tax, btu the
most conservative estimate now places
the deficit for the fiscal year at $25,000,
000. The outlook for heavy receipts
froia two great sources of Income,
the customs and Internal revenue, are
not encouraging, particularly from tne
