MOVEMENT TO RATIONALIZE.
The Publication of United Statu Gto
logical Rcportt Commended.
During tho score or more years
in which tho government Iiiih under
taken to carry on systematic, and
scientific, geological work tho policy
as to publication of tho reports
anilroHiiltH of tho auiiuitl work Iiiih
changed several times. Until tho
last change at no tlino Iiiih It lieen
generally accepted that, tho change
wiih for tho U'tter. Now, however,
a rational policy scorns to have
prevailed. In conformity with lawn
enacted liy tho hint conges, under
tho inspection of Director Charles
I). Walcott, of course, tho United
StatoH geological nnrvey hill disoon
tinuoH tho ontomlimont of report h
mid rt'HiiltH in tho ponderous anil
dreary annual reportH anil instead
will give out promptly ami in current
form as liulletiiiH ami professional
papers tho results of tho work ami
tho annual report will lie reserved
for ailmlniHtratlvo and general data.
Tho ImlletliiH wore published
heretofore, although Homewhat
tardily, hut tho economic roper's
which formerly accompanied tho
annual report will now U published
promptly iih "Professional Papers, "
quarto in size hiii! Including maps.
These and the liulletltiH are listri
buted froo of charge.
These professloiml papers will lie
a real advauco ami a distinct
economy for tho survey also.
Persons Interested in sccial
subjects can thus secure tho data
relating t Hereto witnout an accom
panying liurden of dry admlnlstrHtive
reports or an armful of reportH on
subjects unrelated or uninteresting.
These MKrM onn U gotten twfore
tho public with llttlo delay and at
a comparatively siiihII cost.
Hut tho real advance has lieen iu
a distinct recognition of the utility
to tho public of tho data col looted
by tho survey. Under tho now
policy tho press is given iu advauco
Kouonil notices of forthcoming
publications of tho survey and where
possible tho survey sends out a
popular summary of tho work in tho
several districts for publication in
tho l(Hal ami technical press. Tilt-
advertises me wurK or wic survey as
nothiiiK 'lso could and gives fair
notice to all of the availability of
tho survey's results. In addition
to this heralding of the publications
of tho survey there has been a distinct
recognition of the economic bearings
of the work. Hulk-tin No. 21.1,
prepared under the direction of
Messrs. S. F. Emmons and C. W.
Hayes, geogloists iu charge, Is
devoted to contributions to economic
geology in 1002. This bulletin
summarizes all of the work of tho
survey for the year past and gives,
stripped of all long winded discus
sions of theories and nice adjust
ments of scientific points, the actual
conditions and results under ex
amination. The book is iu con
venient form and this ami its prompt
appearance are to bo commended.
It is cooucisu fyot full on essential
points. The hihlography accompany
ing each subject is of great value.
TIiIh whole movement to rationalize
the publications of the United
States geological survey is to bo
commended. Mining World.
POPLUAR NORTH BEACH.
Excurilon Steamer T. J. Potter Goet Into
Service June 27.
Those who are planning thoir
vacation this year will bo interested
iu knowing that the popular ex
cursion steamer, tho T. J. Potter-
queen of river boats goes Into
service June 27, and that she will
leave Portland, duriug the season,
every day Tuesday until Saturday
inclusive. To see tho beauties of
the picturesque and mighty Columbia
from the decks of the Potter Ih a
treat never to be forgotten. For
speed and grace nothing iu river
or lake service in the entire west
equals this side-wheeled beauty.
Five hours from Portland and one
from Astoria, through the famous
llshiug waters of tho Columbia, past
scores of salmon traps and nets and
as many white-winged tlsh bouts, hinds
tho passenger at llwaco, where close
connection is made for beach points
with trains of tho llwaco Hallway &
Navigation company, whose cars
stand ou the wharf awaiting the
steamer. The beach Ih twenty-sovou
miles long, two hundred yards wide
at low tide, and so hard that carriage
wheels scarcely leave a mark. It is
an ideal place for driving, riding,
wheeling, or walking, and tho surf
bathing is unsurpassable. The ex
cellent hotels and hoarding houses
provide good accommodations at
prices ranging from one dollar to
three dollars per day.
The rouud trip rate from Portlaud
to Astoria is 12. IH); to Ocean Beach
points 11.00, good until October
loth. On Saturdays, during July
and August, rouud trip tickets are
sold to beach points at 12.50, good
for return leaving tho beach tho
following Sunday evening.
The Oregon Hailroad & Navigation
company has just Issued a new
summer book, (free for the ask lug)
which tells all about the delightful
resorts of the Valley of the Columbia
Hlver. This can be obtalued from
