THE SCOW HAY UKIVT.
The work now iu progress on the
Scow Hay depot has failed forth imifh
favorable comment. The observations
made yesterday afternoon by Mr. al
ter Kobb fully substantiate the report
ed plan of construction not only of
the depot, but the other portions of the
railroad. Sufficient work has been done
to guarantee that every os3ible ac
commodation will be afforded the pub
lic and the citizens of Astoria in the
way of city, passenger, express, bag
gage and freight facilities. The pas
senger waiting rooms and ticket office
are now nearly completed, and as s,ton
as the piles arrive for the foundation
the baggage and express rooms will be
erected. As soon as these buildings
are well under way, the work of con
tinuing the track will be resumed.
From where the trestle ends at present,
near the east end of the O. H. and N.
dock, besides the main line, there wiil
be two or three other long tracks
through the depot grounds which could
not be located until the buildings were
in place. Along the water front will
also be constructed a large freight shed
somewhat similar to the U. K. and N.
shed. All of this work speaks for itself
and it is safe to say that the facilities
for the transaction of the business of
Astorians, to be furnished by the rail
road company, will be ample for ail
classes of business men. The substan
tial nature of the foundations and
structures furnishes every evidence
that the company anticipates doing a
Before some of our cltiiens realiie it,
we will have a full-fledged railroad, do
ing business In our midst and making
daily connection by rail with the rest
of the state of Oregon and the rest
of the outside world generally. While
some people are still sitting behind clos
ed doors and growling about hard
times, the slowness on the part of the
railroad company and others in start
ing new business, manufacturing en
terprises, etc., the very things which
they have complained of will have been
accomplished before they are ready to
meet the situation. This is the time
when every property owner and active
business man should be laying definite
plans for the conduct of affairs under
the changed conditions which will have
to be met in 1W7. Any other course
on their part will mean the loss of time
worth thousands of dollars. It is evi
dent that the thinking men of the com
munity do not intend to have their inter
ests Jeopardized by further delays and
lack of harmony, and that they Intend
to be ready for business when the rail
road shall be ready to transact their
business. This is a most encouraging
and hopeful sign, that upperciation
has awakened, and that efforts are
being made even in the face of ad
verse circumstances to push forward
Astoria, and develop her great shipping
and commercial interests.
UOOD NEWS OF THE CHOI'S.
The enormous movement of grain 10
the East and the great demand for it
a I road constitute the most c he.-rful
news that has come to the ears of the
American public for many a day.
There Is no doubt that Europe will
draw more heavily on the American
wheat surplus this full than at any
time since the palmy days before the
American farmer was forced to meet
the bitter competition of Argentina,
ltussia and India. In those days he
was master of fate and his granaries
were the real gold coffers that controll
ed the destinies of the world.
The cause of the present ib-inand is
manifest. Russia, which has le-. n one
of the most active rivals of the I'nited
States In wheat production, has suf
fered a sever-- crop loss. nauthi.ri
tatlve statement from Odessa niahcs it
plain that the crop in the vicinity ol
Odessa is all but a failure. The Hun
garian minister of agriculture, whose
reports are accepted all over the world,
estimates that the total world's crop of
wheat is 137,"i'JO,'eJO bushels und.-r that
of lM:j. The Liverpool Coin Trade
News estimates that Europe will re
quire 3,1'od.OO'i bushels a we-k from
America until the end of c'-i.einb-r.
The hated Jiriiis.li gold is pouring in to
pay for our products, ami even tlie
most distrustful of lirntmrd strcvt can
not object to this result.
Good crops and good pricey are a
blessing which would fall with etpiul
favor upon all parts of the country
and on all classes of people. The crop
news of the day is a great burst of
sunlight in a most dreary year.

their claims to the matchless aclilete

themselves to the awakened Intelli

their countrymen In the follow lug dec

For the llrst lime since the fit II

It has prcflpltatcd panic, blighted In

and dishonor abroad, mid shall be re

We renew and emphasize our allei;!
mice to the policy of protection aa the
bulwark of American Industrial hide
p.-ndenc and the foundation of Amer
lean development and prosperity. This
true American pollrv taxes foreign pro

it puts the burden of revenue on for

upholds the American standard of

It puts the factory by the aide of the

founds the strength of all on the
strength of tach. In Its reasonable ap
plication It Is Just. fair, ami Impartial,
equally opposed to foreign control ami
domestic monopoly, to sectional dis
crimination and Individual favoritism.
We denounce the present IVmocralle

enterprise. We demand such etultable
tariff on foreign Imports which pome
Into competition with American pro
