DRY DOCK FOR ASTORIA.
Mr. Hammond and an Eminent En
gineer are Figuring: on a Large
One for Astoria.
Yesterday was "Editor's Day" on
the Bailey Gaiaert, and Manager Sec
ley had his hands full looking after thu
comforts of the pencil pushers. Fol)
lowing -were the papers represented
Oregon Mist, St. Helens, Jno. R. Bee

W. C. Cowglll. Mr. CowgiU was ac
compan-led by his wife. The newspaper,
representatives were the guests of the
Columbia River and Puget Sound Nav
Igation Company, and it was through
Mr. Seeley the trip was planned. The
genial manager of the company to
which belongs the splendid steamet
Bailey Gatzert, wanted Astoria's neigh
bors to know that a railroad was to bs
built, and thought it an excellent Idea
to bring their representatives here,
and by personal observation let them
see what was being done.
Upon the arrival of the party, they
were escorted to the Irving Olub, where
they were met by several gentlemen
of the various committees, and an
hour or so spent In pleartinit conversa
tion. later they were accompanied
by members of the local press a.bout
the city and visited the newspaper of
fices. At 5 o'clock they, together with
representatives of the Astoria press.
were entertained on board the Gatzert
with a eplendld lunch, Manager Seeley
presenting each guest with a copy o,
the War Cry Just before being seated
at the table. Although their stay wa
of but short duration, they expressed:
themselves as departing with a splr.'t
of the enthusiasm that prevails her,
over the rellroad proposition.

go to San Francisco or Puget Sound
because ' Lloyds and Veritas require

Many inquiries are made In Europ
why a seaport receiving as many shipr
as this has no drydock. There is n
other port in the iworld of 'hialf the si t
of this but what has a drydock. A
drydock on the Columbia would pay i

as It would not be necessary to coppe-i
the bottom, there 'being no teredo lr
the Columbia, as Is the case at San
Francisco and the Sound. Young's
Bay would be an Ideal location for
the dock. Captain Lombard is to havf
another meeting with Mr. Hammond
and no doubt some scheme will be
arrived at for the construction of thi
dry dock in connection with the new
road. Mr. Hammond says that this
Is but the beginning of the side issuet,
resulting from the new line for thi
benefit ot Oregon and her business en
The road meeting held at Olny

by parties Hvbig along the road

Wooden and Peterson, wtth C. J. Cur

After a full exptanaftknt and discuaalon

Cross road law. a motion was a-Vstcd
favoring the imrtrnvememt -without a
dissenting folce. The meetlnff devel
oped the fact that people generally
along the line of the road are In favor
of the Improvement and It is doubtful
If there will be any objection Whatever
to commencing work as soon as It
can be done under the necessary Inci
dent of .putting the law In operation.
The following committee was ap.-oknteu
by Commissioner Peterson, chairman
of the meeting, on the preliminary sur

Learned Its name nnd combinations
How to mix It on his palette;
How to mix It up in buckets;
How to put It on with brushes
Put it on and make It stay there
Make It stick and stay there ti"htly,
So the sun's rays would not blister,
nd the foes and damp of winter
Would not fade or change the color.
