about M fathoms of it. The Wlscomte

vessel was not damaged.
All features considered detrimental to
the Interests of the city in the orllnnnce
embodying the street railway franchise
were stricken out at a meeting of the
street committee, held at the office of
the city attorney yeseplay. The ordin
ance, whl h h is passed th- second read
ing, was referred to the stret committee
and ithe city attorney at the last
meeting of the council to make such al
terations as wotiM seem irper before
coming to a final vote In the council.
Mayor Bergman. Mr. KeuLtrnr and Coun
rtlmen Brix and Clinton were also pres
ent at the meeting. Each section of the
ordinance was taken up and discussed,
and portions, which were believed too
wide in their scope, were ruled out. This
Included the privilege of building on
alleys and public places. It waa agreed
that work should commence on the ex
tension of the present street railway line
In one year after It hnd passed In'o the
hands of Mr. Kuttner. It Is understood
;he line will be built to the end of the
roadway In East Astoria and extended
around Smith's Point at the lower end.
The restrictions confining the franchise
to certain streets was not definitely set
tled at the meeting, but It Is bellevd
that an agreement satisfactory to Mr.
Keuttner and to the city will tx arrived
at when the ordinance Is taken up again
for discussion. Another meetinsr will be
held by the street committee Saturday
next for that purpose. Mr. Keuttner
made no objection to the changes made
In the ordinance and will assume control
of the street railway as soon as the
franchise Is granted.

"ARTISAN" WRITES OF
OLASOOW IRON PIPING.
Why American Manufacturer Tnderbld
Those of European Countries, and
the Moral to Be Prawn from It.
ASTORIA. Nov. T. (Editor Astortan
There I conslde rahle food for thought
lesiwlally for Scotchmenk In the leading
article of last Sunday' Astortan.
How I tt that American underbid
Scotchmen for Iron piping? How Is It
that American are capxble off perform
Ing more wtk than the Scot In a given
apace of time?
Personally I should nswer these vital
ts.xM. ht question follow:
a a itiM tne American people r
better educated than the European. The
Americans are very ambitious and ex
Pcot In many case much more than they
reillse. tn-rhap. NevertheW. they
are expected to work very- hard, because
hey are fortunate in being paid better
whgt than their European confreres.
The opinion a Svtchmn would arrive
t on seeing an American working Iti a
logging damp, for Instance, would le that
the losver was trying to terminate hi
existence by too ambitious Inbor. In
America men work like machine. When
hey are worn out they are cast aside
a worthless and out of date.
poouanu noes not consider Its men as
machines, aw doe not allow em
ployer to consider thetr m'n ? such.
The manufacturer of Europe compel
compel their men to leave the mill at
1J o'clock on Saturday. This I done In
order that the hand will have time to
forget the'r toll and seek pleasure. They
are uppos-d i observe ibe Sabbath
hence the half holiday on SatubUy.
Which system In th long run will be
come more advantageous to the people
(Europe or America, time will disclose.
Personally I am of the opinion that
American manufactures will penetrat
the utmost parts of the earth against all
obstacle. It must be so. for w Ameri
can work at a hlghr pressure than
Europeans. W are paid more, and It
is my humble opinion that the Amerl.un
wurkingman earns every cent that is
paid him for his Intelligence and hard
The day Is not far distant when we
shall underbid the Scotch, not only on
rpr. but shall shure the Scotish glory
of Mng. with her. the greatest idilp
