THE RAILROAD PROCRESSISC Contractor Driving Work With a Vim, and Other Contract About to Ik Ut. TIME TO START OTHER WORK Dry Dock tbe first Tbiay Needed if the Cosipetitios ol tbe Sound I to 5e Headed Otf -Others Wilt Jois. The Item published In yeaterday's Issue announcing that another large dry dock, at a coat of Ill&.OUO, Is to be constructed at once on Puget Sound, bus set many Astorlans to thinking. With two dry docks on i'uget Sound, which will accommodate larg vessels uf every description, what will Astoria do to meet such competition? It is well known by shipping men that sailing masters In the merchant marine ser vice, other things being equal, will al ways seek that port where ample facil ities are offered for cleansing and re pairing the bottoms of their ihlp. Even though a vessel's bottom Is not In need of extensive repairs, when the means are at band, almost every ship captain will dock his vessel and clean and polish the bottom. This en ables him to make better time on the ocean, and pays good returns to the dock company. During the recent strike difficulties railroad matters have been somewhat lost sight of. Those who are In touch with the situation, however, know that the contractors are driving the work along the water front most vigorously. A number of pile drivers are engaged, thoe under Contractor Goerlg working west from the can factory, and those under Wakefield A Jacobsen working east from Kinney's cannery, have now crossed Ninth atreet. The Young's bay bridge is ready for the rails, i also the grade uf the New Astoria branch. New rails will Immediately replace the old Iron on the Seaside dl vision, where new ties have already been laid, and as soon aa the first ship arrives with the heavy steel, It will be laid across the bridge. It Is contem plated that If there is any great delay In the arrival of the vessel, some of the Iron now on hand will be laid on the bridge temporarily, so as to start the train from Astoria for the Seaside travel. General Land Agent Gosslln who returned yesterday from Helena, Mont., where he went to meet his wife, ays that all matters are progressing rapidly as poaslble, and It Is thought that Mr. Curtis, who Is now tn Port land, will complete the Wolfe contract tor the main line grading before his return to Astoria. Architect Delin Is getting along well with the plana and specifications fur the Scow Bay depot, for which It Is anticipated that bids will soon be called. It Is probable that the bids for the Warrenton. depot will be opened and the contract let in the near future. With all these affairs under way on the railroad, it would seem that the time had certainly arrived for some activity on the part of Astorlans to develop the wonderful resources at their door. First and foremost there must be a dry dock with sufficient ca paclty to accommodate not only the largest sailing vessels, but the largest war vessels In the white navy. That such an enterurlse would be a paying one none have dared to question. That It Is needed on the Columbia river w as demonstrated many years ago. That Aatorla needs It now Is a well known fact That Astoria wilt have such dry dock cannot be doubted. Let the ball be started to rolling by the cltl sens themselves, and foreign capital will soon fall Into the procession. De lays In these matters are dangerous. A well known capitalist of Portland when here the other day, said: "I am thoroughly In sympathy with the movement of affairs In Astoria, and firmly believe In Its future prosperty. But you cannot afford to be always w aiting on someone else. The moment that the main line contract Is let to Goble, a number of us have on the way half a doxen different enterprises which will be commenced at once; but first and foremost you people want to start In for a dry dock. Manufactories and other improvements will follow." Mr. Gosslin said that while In Mon tana he met a number of people who owned timber lands In the Nehalem and who proposed to develop them as soon as matters were In proper shape here. THE MARKETS.

ASTORIA NEEDS THE FETE Buiae Me Ctitrally Is ror ol Itatber Tia s Nirtk ol July Celt britio- former Cvest Shooid Be fliistaiied. A well directed effort I now being made to have the annual regatta this fall after all. The management of af fairs some time ago wan given up by the special committee, and turned back to the Astoria Football Club. The complexion of affairs has so changed In the past few days and the sentiment of the business men is so strongly In fa vor of not letting a season go by with out a regatta, that the original com mittee will In all probability resume Its labors and complete the necessary arrangements for the regatta. The annual boat racing on the river brings together thousands of people In the city, and for a seaport such as this there can be no more fitting form of public entertainment. The events In the past years have won many lau rels for tbe city, and Just on the eve of a larger growth It seems a pity to discontinue these occasions which af ford so much amusement to the masses. The concensus of opinion of a large number of business men consulted yeaterday afternoon, was that as be tween a Fourth of July celebration and the regatta, the latter should by all means be chosen. If tbe state of gen eral finance Is not such as to justify two entertainments. If the regatta Is ! decided upon as the public fair or show- day of the year. It Is certain that the Fourth will not be be forgotten in any event. The firemen' tournament. which will be held at the same time, will furnish sufficient variety to the program on land as will destroy all tediousness. Let there be a regatta by all means, and at any cost By that time the railroad will have been com pleted from Seaside Into the city, and several Important events can be cele brated together. WASHINGTON POPULISTS. Adopt i Money Plank and Elect Dele gates to St. Louis. Tacoma, June 23. "Colonel" Mary E. Hobart, of Whatcom, was today de feated In her candidacy for delegate to the Populist convention at St Louis, receiving 72 votes while 78 were re quired. Eleven out of the fourteen counties in western, Washington were represent ed at the Populist convention held to day to elect nine delegates to the national convention. Wahkiakum. Ska mania and Island were the counties un represented. A total of 154 delegates were present. A spirited fight was waged for two hours over the adoption of the plank reading: "As the question of financial legis lation Is the overshadowing question at Issue, we hereby reaffirm our demands for a currency safe, sound and flexi ble, Issued by the general govemnment without the Intervention of national banks or other private corporations, and that said currency shall consist of gold, silver or paper and that all money so Issued shall be full legal tender and be based upon the govern ment's promise to receive and not upon Its promise to redeem in coin.'' The minority, which characterised this plank as a movement toward fu sion on the silver issue, was finally fought down and the plank adopted by a large majority. The balance of the platform declares for the free coinage of sliver at 16 to 1: reaffirms devotion to the cardinal principles of the Omaha platform touching the questions of finance and transportation. A resolution congratulating Senator Teller and his associates was supported by many speakers, but voted dow n af ter a lively debate. Sixteen nomina tions for delegates to St. Louis were made, and nine elected. ANOTHER SUICIDE. Tacoma, June 23. While temporarily insane, Benjamin F. Thompson, a prominent young business man, aged 2S, committed suicide early this morn ing, at the Lexington house, by bang ing himself.

It was In ses sion only a little over five hours. Near- ly all of the candidates were nominated by acclamation. There was no strife. There were no acrimonious speeches, save those directed against the enemy.

Un til within three weeks the gold stand ard adherents were supposed to be overwhelmingly in the majority In the Wisconsin Democracy, but when the test vote came this afternoon on the adoption of the minority and majority reports from the committee on resolu tions, the silver men were found to have 128 of the 340 delegates In the convention.

Populists Have an Interesting Session In Tacoma. Tacoma, June 23 The Populists' of Western Washington held a district convention here today to elect nine delegates to the national convention to be held at St. Louis, July 22. To save travelling expenses six district conven tions were held in Eastern Washing ton to elect a total of eight delegates, the entire state being entitled to sev enteen delegates. The conventions there were held at Not-th Yakima, Col- ville, Spokane, Sprague, Dayton and Colfax. In opening the Western Wash ington convention this morning, Chair man Bulger, of the state committee, pleaded earnestly with the delegates to stand by the people's party and keep In the middle of the road. He nearly broke down crying during the course of his passionate plea. The convention was against him, the platform adopted paving the way for fusion, at least In Western Washington. Andrew Dalglty was the holder of the lucky number which drew the bi cycle at Crosby's raffle last night. He treated the boys afterwards. Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest TJ. S.

SECOND CHOICE IN BETTING ilner Victory added to tagist Bclnoat's String Tweitjr Tboasastf Teople Skost Tkensclves Roarse it tke rials. New York, June 23. Henry of Na varre is surely himself again, for In the fast time of 1:07 he won the su burban today from some of the best hones in training, and did it with consummate ease. For some unknown reason he was second choice to Clifford In the betting, and from tbe time they left the post until they had finished there wa little doubt as to the result It was a grand victory in a true run race, and August Belmont haa another victory added to his already long string. To win the suburban la one of the alms of every horse-owner. It was a beautiful start, an well plao-. ed, with no possibility for complaint, the top weights being kept standing until they were tired. The bunch wept past the grand stand at a good speed, with Belmar a shade In advance) of the others. Passing the Judges stand for the first time, the furlong being covered In 0:12M. the half mile was reached In 0:50. At the five fur long pole Griffin gave Navarre a bit of the bridle, and he stepped up to the two leaders. Around the turn into tha stretch they flew, and as they passed the mile pole at 1:41 Griffin gave Na varre a little more rein. Commoner was only a head In front, wMla Clif ford had got Into third place,' half m . length behind. As they strtUted, out for the home, Taral beg' as none but Taral can.

The race was his beyond question, for he could feel his horse going easily under him, while his most dangerous rival, Clifford, was blowing like a grampus. The timers' watches stopped at 2:07 aa Navarre passed the post as easily as if be were out for an exercise gallop, a full length In front of Commoner. Navarre cantered back to the post amid the wild hurrahs of 20.000 people, with scarcely a hair turned, one of the best specimens of a race horse seen in many a day. ELECTIONS IN CANADA.

While the return of the Dominion elections are not all in, they are sufficiently near complete to show a decided defeat for the gov ernment The Catholic vote, upon which the ministry relied, has utterly failed to go conservative. Quebec, which In the last election gave the liberals a majority of only five votes, and which, on the strength of the re medial legislation to which the govern ment Is pledged, was expected to go strongly conservative, has wheeled around and given the libertals from twenty to twenty-five majority. By provinces, the returns at midnight show the following: Ontario Conservative, 25; Liberal, 37. Quebec Conservative, 11; Liberal, 34; Independent L Nova Scotia Conservative, 8; Liber al. 10. !
