A quick run was made across Youngs

found walling several commodious
wagons with tine teams attached ready
to convey the visitors over the new
road. At 10.43, shortly after passing
the tine farms of W. K. lvment. J. V.
Keith and Mr. Ingalls. the upper school
house was reached and her a halt
made for rest and refreshment. Kor
the latter ample provision had been
made, both as to quantity and quality,
by the w ives and daughters of the Set

the bountifully laden tables. After hav

house for the purpose of exchanging

Mr. G. O. Moen returned yesterday
from an extended sojourn in Norway,
having been absent frotn Astoria for
about five months. Mr. Moon's trip was
of a business nature and though con
stantly employed, he availed himself of
many opportunities to thoroughly
see the country of his youth, an ab
sence of twenty. six years having ma
terlally changed the appearance of
things. Iiurlng the stay In Norway a
Journey was made to Sweden, which
opened a new avenue of exploration
"Over In England," Mr. Moen said
"the lirltaln Is smiling at the prospect
of having the upper hand 'when Hry
an Is elected;' but from observations
made on this side of the water It would
seern that he has reckoned without his
host." As Is natural Mr. Moen Is glad
to be at home again and was busy yes
terrjay in renewing his acquaintance
with Astoria generally.

of Judging for themselves whether the
work had been done well or not. Mr.
Ingalls spoke of his determination
years ago that the settlers In that fer
tile section of the county should have a
good road all the way to the county
at ami a market He had never lost
sight of It. And. now, notwithstand
ing all the hindrance and discourage
ments, they had. with very little aid
from the county, less than $r.iu. built
a good road to tide water all ready
for summer travel, and the paramount
question now is will the county com
plete the connection, either by bridge
or ferry. For himself, he favored a
bridge as the moat permanent and the
most economical In the end. The gen
tleman said he would like to get an
expression of opinion from others pres
ent and called upon the Hon. !' J.
Taylor, who respondiM.
Mr. Taylor said he had heard much
about this road, but had never Imcii
over It before and was very much
pleased that he had now done so. lie
was both gratltlrd and surprised to find
such an amount of work had been nc-
!'-'I'llh.M and so well done. No coun-
try can prosper without gixd roads.
Astoria has suffered loss for the want
of them, and notwithstanding lh rail
road you cannot build up Astoria with
tit good roads lo afford easy and di
rect communication with your farming
settlement. This new road was of
mors Importance than might st first
appear. From observation and per
sonal knowledge of this section he
knew that roads could be built on easy
grad.w at comparatively little expense,
