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.

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. He was secretary of the
University Land Company and the son
of Geo. W. Thompson. He had never

Denver, June 23. Mayor McMurray

conclusion of one of the most impres

physically unable to lead the fight and
his financial affairs were in bad shape
and needed his attention. No sooner
had he mentioned bis desire to retire
from public life than there came an
impassioned shout of disapproval, not
only from the delegates, but from the
thousands of people who were crowded

It was a strange convention, and will
not soon be forgotten. 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.
The convention, as had been predict
ed, came out strongly for free silver

Milwaukee, June 21 Free silver de
veloped unexpected strength In the
Democratic state convention today. 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. The delegates at large to
the national convention are all gold
standard advocates and are headed by
Senator Vilas and General Edward
Bragg. District delegates chosen to

WESTERN WASHINGTON.
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.

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. Only a ,
icvnr norms mud Navarre bad -imlx a
length the best of It Grlffln looked
' on one side of hlra at Commoner and
saw him laboring, and then on tha
other side at Clifford, with Taral work
ing like a beaver, and smiled. 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.
Toronto, June 23. 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.
! New Brunswick Conservative, 8;
' Liberal, 5.
Prince Edward's Island Conserva

The general result shows most dis
astrously for the government: Conser
vatives, 63; Liberals, 98; Patrons, 2.
LIBERALS LEAD.
Toronto, June 23. The Dominion
government has been defeated. Up to
10 p. m., 150 constituencies out ot 21S
have been heard from, giving the lib
eral party a large majority.
CONSERVATIVES WIN,
Victoria, B. C, June 23. Prior and
Farle, conservatives, were elected over
Milne and Templeton, liberals, the vote
being 1653, 1564; 1261 and 1461 respect

American worklngmen to have the

wants these wages paid in the best
