London, Apt-id 12. A dlipatch to the

urday, and lasted all the afternoon.
The Turk were r"ported to have ca
pitulated. The casualties on both
sidai were under 100. There is no news
regarding the Turkish, prisoners. The
insurgents, according to the dlsiatch,
are without a commissary and are not
supHMrbed by the Creek regulars. Tha
Idea of the insurgents, K appears. Is
to cut rhe Turkish lines botwteen Mac
edonia and the Piraeus. It Is reported
that the Insurgents f-rikrwed the Turks
to within a short distance of Grevano,
and are in a fair way to accomplish
their object. The Arta correspondent

WHAT PORTLAND SAYS.
Mr. R. L. Durham, vice president of
the Commercial National bank, Port
land, who spent Sunday In the city,
with Banker Morris, of Morris &
White4iead, Denver, the Astoria bond-
buyers, said to an Astorlan represent
ative that net antlclated a gvineral
Improvement In business this year
throughout the state, and In Portland
partkiularly. "Business Is bound to re
vive all over the country under the
new tariff law, and we will feel Its
effect here. What Oregon particularly
needs Is dinner pall brigades fac.
tortes. The new schemes for the
growing and manufacture of flax and
sugar beets deserves the heartiest sup'
port of every man, woman and child
in the state, and the proposed new in
dustries at Astoria export saw mills,
dry dock, export flour mills,, tinplate
factory, sliivyards. elevators, etc.
should be fostered by the business
men of bolth Astoria and Portland.
The new railroad will make a change
In affairs, and the Interests of both
cities are lde-ntical, and they should
work together. One will supplement
the work of the other to the common
good of both and there is no room
for jeuiouties and bitter competition.
Portland has money, brains and a
commanding position ; Astoria has
rmuvy natural resources which only-
need development to enrich both clt-
kw. The railroad will enable the es
tablishment of a big foreign shipping
trade which will take care of all the
products of Oregon and a large part
of those of the Northwest, and will
pass through Astoria and Portland a
tremendous traffic from the Orient to
the United States."
