"There Is no reason why a county
fair should not become one of Astoria's
regularly eatabllshe Institutions, If
th exposition building i puahel to a
success. I don't know that there ar
any so foolish aa to seriously oppos
th plan, but If there are, they should
remember th experience of th people
at Tillamook. When It was proposed
to Inaugurate a county fair at that point
a certain rlaxa of croaker sent up a
howl and prophesied a funeral for It
really before th scheme waa out of
Its swaddling clothes. However, It so
happened that aom gentlemen of en
terprise had th proposition In hand
and they fought It through deaplt th
counteraction. The result waa that th
fair was and has remained a splendid
success. The sain remarks ar equally
applicable to th original movement
for a regatta celebration her. Th two
gentlemen who solicited th funds en
countered hostility, for all that lhy
could refer to waa th crowd that at
tended the Astoria Centennial festivi

wasted several years of Its existence in
not having It a long time before." ,
