Astoria P O
Clatsop County an incorporated city, and county seat, is situated on the south side of the Columbia River, 12 miles from the ocean. It is the oldest town in the State of Oregon, a trading post having been established at this point in 1811, by John Jacob Astor, of New York. The city occupies a site at the base of a mountain ridge, and 18 divided into two sections, known as Upper and Lower Astoria, which are connected by a bridge about a mile in length. The stores and other business places are built principally over the water, on piles, and the residences on the hillsides above.

The population, according to the census of 1880, was 2,753, and at the present time is estimated at 4,000. Salmon canning is the chief industry carried on, and during the fishing season gives employment to from 2,000 to 2,500 men. In 1866 there was but one cannery in operation on the Columbia River, and the number of cases packed was 4,000, the value of which was $16 per case, or $64,000. At the present time there are about thirty-eight canneries in operation on the river, eighteen of which are located at Astoria. During the year 1881 the number of cases packed was 550,000, valued at 85 per case. The town contains several manufactories, including two saw-mills, a box factory, an iron foundry, and machine works, also several boat building establishments.

Three public schools are maintained, but the accommodations are insufficient for the number of scholars. In addition to these are two private schools, which are well attended. Several churches are maintained, including the Baptist, Episcopal, Presbyterian, Methodist, and Roman Catholic. The secret societies organized are the Masons, Odd Fellows, Knights of Pythias, Ancient Order United Workmen, and Good Templars. A well-conducted hospital, the St Mary's, under the supervision of the Sisters of Providence, affords good accommodations for the sick.

The city jail, recently erected at a cost of about $20,000, is a substantial stone building 50 by 80 feet, and two stories high. The custom-house and post office building is a fine, two story stone structure, erected in 1873, at a cost of $80,000. The city has a good fire department, the apparatus consisting of two steam engines and a hook and ladder truck. One of the engines is considered the finest on the coast, being one of the number awarded a prize at the Centennial Exhibition of 1876. There are also four steam tugs, with couplings to fit the fire hose, and three steam pumps on the water front, with a hose cart for each. Water is distributed by two companies, but the supply, which is obtained from a spring and gulch in the mountains overlooking the city, is insufficient, and private tanks are considerably depended upon. The Astorian, published daily and weekly, advocates the interests of the section.

Communication is maintained with San Francisco every four days by the steamers of the Oregon Railway and Navigation Co., daily with Portland, and way points on the Columbia River, Knappton and Skipanon, tri-weekly with Fort Stevens, Fort Canby, and Ilwaco, and weekly with Young's River.
