land C'hlnea. Among the aecuaad are
many Kapublleana prunilnrnt In political
clrvlva, and the affair ha oauaed con'
atrrnatlon In the party. During tha paat
thrre year there have bern almoat four
hundred Chinee landed In thle city, and
aa many aa one hundred have been land
ed In one week. Th Utter corwlgnment
ariu made al the time when roe .team-
ship lalander vlelted tble pert. In thl
city there are about twenty-lour Chlneee
llrma and aom of which, according to
the Importation, have aa many a eighty
mnmlKira. During the paat year It hai
brn generally believed that much rot'
tvnneee ealeled In the Chlneaa Importa
tion bualneaa, and the expo today wa
not altogether unexpected. Mr. P. B.
Chappclle, Ih traaaury agent, wnoa In-
vrallgatlona have culminated In Indict-
mrnta. Hrat vlalted thla city about two
werka ago, and he ha bean actively en

Ing coollra have denied to Mr. Chappclle
any knowledg of the partlr Illegally
landed, or that they have any connection
with their flrma.
Soma lime ago It waa deemed advtauble
by tha pan I particularly Interested to
have aom of the men admitted through
the fort Townaend cuatom houae evl
drntly for th reaaon that euaplclon waa
likely to fall upon them because of the
regularity with whlrh Die (teamrr Signal
arrived her with balche Of twenty to
thirty coolie. Since that time It wa
understood that many men had succeed
ed In effecting landlnga by th Port
Townaend route and II la probable that
Mr Chappelle will prosecute hla good
work ao aa to ascertain Just how many
arrivals there were by way of Port
Townaend, and whether the men had a
legal right to land.
Mr. Chappelle consider that he haa
sufficient evidence to secure conviction
In tha cases of all those Indicted. It la
understood that thl evidence consist
In part of the testimony of accompllcea
both white and Chinese, who have been
promised Immunity from punishment In
consideration ot their service In testify

Portlands May II. -A number of per
aona were Indicted by the United State
grand Jury today and It I understood
among them are several residents of A
turln, who era charged with consplru'ry
to land Chinese. United Btntes Marshal
Clrndy refused to give out the name or
partlea Indicted or state what chargea
were contained In'the Indictments.-
lie wa very wrathy when he learned
that th fact ot the Indictments having
been returned had leaked out. It la stat
ed that a number of. prominent men ot
Astoria are among the accused. United
Stales Mitrahttl Grady will go to Astoria
tomorrow to make arrests, but until the
warrants have been served tne name
of the accused will not be known.
Clrucly 1 apprehensive lest the prema
ture publication of tho new of the In
dictment will cause those who believe
they are euapectod to leave Astoria, thu
causing hint annoyunce In making the ar
Construction Along Waterfront to
Begin nt Once.
It I a ploaaure to announce that the
oontracta for the construction ot a por
tion ot the railroad have been awarded.
The principal portion o( the line within
the city limit will be built at once.
The bids ot two different firm have been
accepted, and tha work will be divided.
The successful contractors state that
they will be able to commence work with
in four or five days.
President Curtis, of th Northwest
Construction .Company, says that the
contract for the UCO feet ot trestllng
and WO feet of grading, from the end ot
the old Goas trestle, along the road where
the old motor line ran, up to Seventh
street, has been awarded to A. C. Uoerlg,
of Kverott, Washington. From 8eventh
atreot to Eighteenth street, or the east
end of the O. R. and N. dock, and from
Twenty-ninth street to a point 1000 feet
cast thereof, the contract for construc
tion has been given to Mcssra Wakefield
and Jauolwen. The depot building and
depot grounds . and switch yards, etc.,
will be let under sepnrate contracts. It
CHnnot yet bo decided Just who will have
the contract for the earth work from

that the machinery for handling tha

the city. Should there be any great de
lay, however. It I likely that old rails

Noon lane gang of men will be at

Astoria will be a busy city. Without a

ed In regard to hi Impressions of Asto
ria and Ih general business situation.
"In my Judgment Astoria haa the best
prospect of any town on th Paclffc
eosat. Hr geographical situation 1 one
of unparallelled excellence, and she 1
bound to b th greatest shipping port ot
the Northwest. I am simply delighted
with the prospects here. There I a great
future before your city. Everything In
nature and commerce ha combined for
th building of a solid business center.
Anything that aids your Interests her
redounds to our Interests In Portland and
to the whole atate of Oregon. Wa all
ought to stand by you, for It means Uis
advancement of the most vital Interest
of Oregon In every branch of trade.
Iluslneea generally la dull, but w are
looking for bolter thing In th near fu
ture. A bit of aunshln Ilk w have
today makes a vast difference In a man'
feeling, tils hope are buoyed up and
hi ambition stirred to greater deeds.
There hi one thing your property owners
should exercise car about, and tbat I
to see that there Is no quibbling about
a small piece or dirt when a capitalist
ants a location for a factory tbat will
hare piy rolls, Trein what your people
ha already done. I am satisfied that
better Judgment will prevail than ha
been exhibited In other place, and that
no oiportunli!e will be lost to secure
factories of all kind. These are the life
of every community and should be rare
full) fostered. Don't let the world think
thit you are going to have a "boom,' or
that you are booming your town. Don't
blow up your town like a bladder that
ran be pricked with pin and let the
whole thing col lapse. There have been
too many such experiences on the west
ern coast. You have everything here to
warrant a steady and sure, growth on a
sife basis and under healthy conditions.
If you do not depart from these lines
there la no power on earth which can
prevent the oulldlng of a populous and
prosperous commercial center at the
mouth of the Columbia"
Investigation Made of Eligible Bite by
Testerday afternoon s party of railroad
officials and capitalists made an excur
sion about th bag with the object In
view of Inspecting suitable aites for
sawmills. Among those in tbe parly were
U B. Seeley, J. M. Turney, Robert Wake
field, D. H. Hanson, of San KrancUco,
agent for the Allla-Ulack Mill Machinery
Company, Milwaukee. Hon. H. H. Par

ger, C C. VanKtlen, W. G. Howell, A.
H. Hammond. Col. John Adair, S. H.
Brown, Jr., K. J. Ford.
A run was nrst made to Tongue Point,
and here Messrs. Hammond and Hanson
disembarked and walked across the
Tongue to the buoy depot, where they
were picked up again by the steamer.
From th buoy depot the party proceeded
to the draw brliUe at Young's bay, and
from thence to Flavel. A careful exami
nation waa made of tbe different promi
nent alts on the route. The day waa
especlully propitious for the occasion,
and everyone was In the best of spirits.
Mr. Hanson represent one or the larg
est manufacturing establishments of saw
mill machinery In the United States, and
upon hla representation will largely de
pend the placing by that house of ma
chinery at this point That the erection
of a first-class modern sawmill to manu
facture export lumber and timber. Is one
of the ffrst requisite of the new Astoria,
s conceded by all. It would appear that
the hopes of Astorlans are soon to be
realised. When questioned upon the sub
ject Mr. Hanson said that he considered
Astoria the Ideal location for a sawmill
not only for the manufacture of export
lumber, but for the manufacture ot
goods for domestic and transcontinental
shipments. The gentleman left with a
most favorable Impression ot thl port
and It coming Importance.

New Tork, May 21 Stephen Little has
finished his Investigation of the Baltimore
and Ohio Railroad books, with the ex
ception of those of the West Virginia
and Pittsburg and Staten Island Rapid
Transit companies, both of which are
said to be In good condition.
The main facts have been communi
cated to the reorganisation committee,
and while no money appears to have
been misappropriated, It Is understood
that they show that vast amounts ot
money have been unwisely spent on some
of the branch lines, which have proved a
drain on Ih parent company ever since
Among these lines, ss already pointed
out, are the Akren and Chicago Junction
line, Pittsburg and Baltimore Belt Line.
The establishment of a trunk line, by
wsy of Pittsburg, resulted, according to
the examination. In a diversion of traffic
from th old main lln at Cumberland.

aa hour of much xcltemeat, with a re

hour today. At ( o'clock Butler moved ta
take op his bin prohibiting the further
Issue of interest-bearing bonds. Hill Im
mediately moved an adjournment, secur

with a motion for an execntlve ses'lon.
Pettlgrew asked leave to offer a supple
mentary conference report on the Indian '

ately demanded a full reading of tha
report This was aa unexpected mow
for delay, as th report wss very voiu

ruled that Hill's demand was regular and,
directed tbe clerk to proceed with tha
reading of th report Butler, Stewart,
and Allen Interposed a chorus of pro testa
Allen said he hoped the senate would
aot vlolata every decency and propriety
Dy mere obstructive tactics.
"What right hav you to the floor V
asked Hilt, aharply, addressing Allen per
sonally. Then, stressing the chair. Ultra
added: "Ho has no riant to tha floor.'
'I have, too," declared Allen. I haw
a right to speak, and I propose to do so.
"Others have rights ss well as you,""
responded HUL Tbe tone of the speaker
showed feeling. ,
Allen proceeded and said that th ob
struction was manifestly aimed at tb
"I am glad It Is admitted to be a Pop

At this point a very heated conorjiiy
occurred between Hill and Allen Th
latter had continued to hold the floor.
H spok with much feeling, saying he
bad never known tbe cpirit of the unao
1 hwous agreement of the senate to be
violated, sad 4h senator won commltteel
such a violation would regret It
"I would like to know If the senator
refer to me. said Hill, rising. There
was a momentary silence, owing to tha
suggestive tone of Hill's Inquiry.
"What does the senstor want to know
fort" asked Allen, with equal signifi
cance. "I want to know If reference Is mad) -to
me." replied Hill.
"I referred to the senator," said Allen.
"Then I desire to say here," answered
Hill, savagely, "that the statement la
false, absolutely false. I have vtotcatea
no agreement and my course was sus
tained by th chslr."
"The senator will never be able to -eon-vlnce
me." said Allen. In somewhat sub

"I care nothing about convincing you;
I stand on my rights here," Hill ssM.
A vote was about to be taken when
the snarl of parliamentary obstruction
was Interposed. For an hour roll cans
