alwi have a tendency to eatalillah the
oommeri-liil aupremary of Aatorla. In
the Pacific North went. For many year
paat. II la a w-ll known fact, that the
people of The Pullr and Aatorla Imve
Ihiii anything but friendly toward
IVrtlitiiJ becuuee of the belief tliat the
metroMi)i tui done everything poMl
ble to retaol the proKTin of thoee two
cltlea. Whether thin belief hua been
well founded or not I not within the
cope of thin article to denumalrate. One
thing I certain, however, that the com
pletion of the locka and the building of
the railroad to Aatorla have already
greatly cemented the tlea of friendship
and buaineM relation between all
three of the cltlea. It ha been claimed
tlmt but for the hoatlllty and Interposi
tion of Portland The Dalles would long
ago have had ita lock and Aatorla Ita
railroad. However thl may be, these
are now matter of the ut. The time
tut a arrived when the foremont and
most energetic buMlnca men reullie
thru Oregon must be for Oregon. Its
three or four principal cities ciwmot
longer afford to harlxr petty Jeal
ousies, but must work together for the
geiierti! good. Uooh city haa Ita par
ticular functions to perform, and all
can work harmoniously, neither one nor
the ther gaining any special advan-
take or suffering tnny special loos be
cause of Its sister cities.
The metroiKtlls will always remain the
metropolis, but The Dalles, Salem and
ther Interior olnt have their advan-
tngf and will develop on their Seclal
line. In the very nature of affairs As
toria will lie the great shipping port
not only for the entire state of Oregon,
but of the Pacific Northwest. Theae
facta recognised, and all' working to
Ket tier on broad lines, will bring about
results which will make Oregon one of
the trreojteet state In the Cnlon and
her cities must and will grow on their
Individual merits. Each one will' have
Its peculiar bUHlness, Ottid all will be
dependent uKn each other. The open
ing of the locks will open one of the
finest wheat-growing districts In the
world, and will give to the farmer the
benefit of both water and rail transpor
tation to tide water. If Portland loses
the business of loading shls at her
wharve. she will gain In financial Im
portance and the better control of gen
eral business throughout the state. As
toria will gain as a shipping and com
mercial center, and will of course be
come more or less of a distributing
point for the state on account of her
Hdvuntageous situation at the Juncture
of title water and rail. While the Im
porting of fruit from California will be
greatly decreased, there will be a cor-
resMindlng increase In other lines of
business between San Francisco and
Oregon. Much W the wheat from the
Interior, now shipped at high rate by
rail to San Francisco, will ' hereafter
be shipped entirely by water.
The completion of the Astoria and
Columbia Itiver Ilailroad will greatly
Increase the lumber business of the en
tire state. A large belt of forest con
taining millions of feet of lumber will
be opened by the railroad, and ship
ments on a larger scale will be made by
both land and sea. Astoria will nat
urally be the distributing point for this
product, but Portland capital will large-

tion would relieve her at once of the re-
I sponsiblllty. The Spaniards themselves
however, are prepared to prefer large
claims against the United States for
damage wrought by filibustering ex.
pedtttons, and this loss in a measure,
may be offset.
What the insurgents undoubtedly ex
pect and ardently hope for, in the opin
ion of the state department people. Is
the precipitation of war between the
United States and Spain.
The department of Justice has not
yet received ofllclal information of the
reported enlistment of companies of
men in different parts of the country,
with a view of Joining the Insurgent
forces In Cuba, nor can it be authorita
tively Btated Just what course would
be pursued by the government should
these enlistments be brought officially to
Its notice. The position taken by the
government, however. In the Horsa
case, would seem to govern In these
cases. In the Horsa' case the conten
tion of the government was that, under
Section 5262, the enlistment of men in
this country for service In Cuba, either
In behalf of the Spaniards or the insur
gents, was high misdemeanor, punisha
ble by fine, not exceeding $2000, and im
prisonment not more than three years;
nor is it necessary for a man actually
to enlist, Inasmuch as the law Inhibits
the Cubans, undor penalties named
nboe, from enlisting or hiring or re
taining any person to enlist, or to go
beyond the limits or Jurisdiction of the
United States, with the intent to enlist
as a soldier or marine, or seamen, etc.
This act was held In the Horsa case
to be sufficiently comprehensive to war
rant the arrest and punishment of per
sons offending, and it is believed that
should any of the reported movements
reach the point where proof of the
facts could be obtained. The govern
ment would not hesitate to take imme
