The vacant lot at the northwest comer
of Fourteenth and Exchange streets is
used as the dumping ground for all the
garbage in that portion of the city. The
hole is an eyesore to a civllixed commun
ity and a disgrace to the city, and should
be filled up. Old mattresses, tin cans ant
broken glass are piled high oo the prop
erty, and the notice posted by the o"f
warning the public that the dumping of
garbage Is strictly prohibited, seems to
e Ineffectual. It is a disease-breeding
hole and should receive the attention ot
the health officers.

FINAL PLAN FOR THK
Fanmrs Wtll Meet M th Association
Rooms Today to Deeld Fpon th
Site for the Building.
At I o'clock this afternoon the farmers
interested In the proposed cooperative
creamery will mevt at the rooms of th"
I'Mn-r slv Commercial Axltloti f.r
the pune of perfecting organisation.
All the farmers interested will be In at
tendance, and the plan of operation will
N laid cut.
The meeting will be addressed by Mr
K. J. Seely. manager of the Albany
Creamery Association, who Is one of the
brl posted dairymen In Oregon. He will
explain to the farmer the results derived
irm practical experiments made tn Al
bany, and will offer many valuable sug
gestions. The creamery under his direc
tion Is a most successful Institution, and
the oMe. t of Ms visit to Astoria It to
make the local creamery a success, rlls
address promises to be of great Interest
At today' meeting th committee ap
pointed for th purpose of determining
upon a site and the cost of a building ami
plant will submit their reports, as will al
so the committee selected to determine
upon th number of co which can be
secured to supply th creamery. Nothing
definite I known aa to what ha been
accomplished by tti several committees,
although they are ld to have met with
much success In formulating tne plana
Th site selected is within the city limits,
probably along the waterfront, thu en
abling dairymen to brliw milk her eitner
by boat or rail without Inconvenient', It
1 said the building wtll be erected on
the site of th old Hum cannery, at the
corner of Bond and Fourteenth street.
Th tarmer. It 1 thought, hav srcurcd
between l,Sv and 1 cow. Th. insures
the success ot the Industry.
Recently, when Professor Kent al
drcssed the Farmers' Congress In tnl
city, he spoke at length on the danuge
of Clatsop county as a dairying country,
and predicted unqualified suces for the
proposed co-operative, creamery". H laid
special stress on the point that every
attention should be given to cleanliness,
saying thai upon this would depend to
a gnat extent the success of th cream
ery. Ha suggested that patrons be In
vited to visit the creamery and view the
operations, and. he said. If efery thlng U
neat and clean, the demand for home
made butter and checs would always
exceed the supply.
The excellence of the pasturage In this
vicinity is another condition which will
go tar toward making the creamery a b it
financial suecrs. When Botanist Covllle.
line government expcH. a nere I gSV'
h had tWver before seed such a line
growth of grasses and clover. Th pas
turage here, untlk that In other sections
of the country. Is good the year around,
enabling farmer to feed thetr stock at
the very lowest figure. Where other
dairymen are compelled to pend thous
ands of dollars for hay, those of Clatsop
county can feed their stock on much bet
ter fodder, and that. too. without the ex
penditure of a dollar. Of course some
bran must be fed to stock, but the big
hay Item will not appear on the expense
account of the Clatsop county dairyman.
, V Indeed have bevn favored by nature.
FALL FISHING SEASON OPENS.
The fall fishing season opened at U
o'clock la.it night. A large number of fish
ermen went out. Indications point to
an exceptionally good season, and It Is
thought the river is full of fish. Th
several canneries have offered IS cents
a pound for steelhead and sllversldet.
and this ha caused much dissatisfaction
among the fishermen, who claim the can
neries had formerly agreed to pay i cents.
As to the Justice uf this complaint noth
ing is known, except that the fishermen
are not at all salitled. saying they
cannot afford to fish for that price. How
ever. In the hope of a rise In the price
many are now fishing. The cold storage
company. It Is said, will pay half a c tit
more than the canneries for all the fish
that may be delivered at U docks, an')
this. If true, will doubtless have the
effect of citus ng a rise In the price. The
quantity of salmon taken will also have
much to do with the price paid. If the
run is good the price may not go above
2 cents, but If th fish are. scarce 1 rents
may be offered before a month. With
three exception all the lower river can
ner.es will run. The Elmore. Hume and
Cutting Packing Company' cannerle will
