HOW ANDREW JOHNSON BECAME
Perhaps the most disgraceful scene
in our history as a republic was the
day of Lincoln's second inaugura
tion, when Andrew Johnson, the vico
president elect, made a maudlin
drunken speech before the leading
men of this nation and the represen
tatives of nearly every foreign nation
of prominence. An eld senator told
me to-night how this came to be.
Said he: "Andrew Johnson was ac
customed to drinking, but he seldom
tookanore than he could convenient
ly and sensibly carry. "While gov
ernor of Tennessee ho used to keep a
bottle of whisky in a covered wash
stand in his office, and I have taken
several drinks with him there. lie
would raise the cover, take a drink
and offer one to me. Still this was a
common custom in the south, and
Johnson was not looked upon as a
drinking man in Tennessee. I do
not think ha often took more than
enough for himself in "Washington.
As to his drunkenness at his inaugu
ration to which Sumner bo sarcastic
ally alluded on the senate floor, John
"W. Forney told me how it occurred.
Forney was clerk of the senate at the
time. He said Johnson had -been
drinking the night before the inau
guration with a lot of friends at tho
Metropolitan hotel, and as usual in
such cases he arose the next morning
with a bad taste in his month aud no
appetite. The result was that he start
ed up to the capitol without break
fast, and when ho got there he was
very weak and he looked wan and
haggard. He came into the senate
and asked Mr. Forney if he could
get him a drink of whisky. Forney
replied yes, and went and brought in
a bottle of old Kentucky "bourbon.
Johnson took this and poured n gob
let half full, while Forney's eyes
grew large in surprise as he gulped
it down. This alone would have
been enough to have made an ordin
ary man drunk, but it was not
enough for "Vice President Johnson.
He filled the glass half full again and
threw it in upon Tiis empty stomach.
He then walked off across the room,
and he only staggered a little as he
took his place beside President Lin
coln in front of the assemblage of
cabinet secretaries, foreign ministers,
and others. When it came time to
take his oath and tho book was hand
ed him to kiss, ho waved it aside
with his hand and bogan to make a
speeoh. "What he said was never re
ported in tho papers, but it must
havo been very funny. He took each
of the secretaries to task and gave
them instructions. Ho addressed
the foreign ministers, and though
Forney tried to pull him down by
holding to his coat-tails behind, he
would not stop, but went on. Presi
dent Lincoln was, as were all the
Americans present, grieved by tho
occurrence, and Abe Lincoln said:
'I hope this will prove a lesson to
Andy.1 " Ex.

BETTER HAIL FACILITIES NEEDED.
The recent stormy weather and
flood demonstrate the fact that a daily
mail from Montesano to Olympia is a
perfect farce during the winter. It
has been over a month since the mail
has came regularly over that route,
and the majority of the paper mail
that has come that way has been in
bad condition. "While passenger
travel has been almost entirely sus
pended. You ask, How can this be
remedied? Easy enough. Get the
route established through to Astoria,
The plan to work on ia for this county
to build a good road from Laidlaw's
wharf to the ocean beach, then the
transportation company will build a
wharf at North Cove. From there go
direct across Shoalwater bay to Oys
terville, leaving the "Willapah and
Bay Center districts to be served by
another route. Then by having a
through saok for Gray's Harbor and
a f postal clerk on the mail boat on
this harbor the trip could be
made from Montesano to Asto
ria in one day nine months in the
year, while from tho middle of No
vember to the middle of February
tho boat on this end of the route
would probably have to start from
Hoquiam. "With this revision in the
present route we would not only have
a comfortable line o travel over,
but there need not be more than a
day or two's delay in our mails, and
this would not occur more than once
a year. Let the citizens of this coun
ty, of Pacifio county and the citizens
of Astoria take hold of this matter.
let the Vidette, the Pacific Journal
and The Astobian agitate this ques
tion and by another winter we will
have uninterrupted mail connections
with the outside world, there will be
no necessity for our steamers to lay
up for laok of business. We do not
wish to interfere with the route from
Montesano to Olymnia: but there is
a large scopo of country from Monte
sano to Astoria that sorely needs bet
ter mail facilities, and now is the
time to strike for them. Gray's Har-

WHAT DOES IT PROVE?
Believing that you are willing to
give a hearing to both sides of any
question, if to either, I respectfully
ask you to publish the following ex
tracts from the .Lewiston, Ale, IV etHly
Journal of Jan. 2nd, 1S35:
"MAINE'S CRIMINALS AND CRIMINAL
The publication of tho annual re
port of Attorney General Cleaves of
Maino, will renewedly call public at
tention to the question of oapital pun
ishment, to issues of taxation and to
other vital public interests. It seems
that although there have been thir
teen cases of homicide in the Maine
courts in V18S1, that of all sorts of
criminal practices we have had but
one to each 450 of population. In the
1445 criminal prosecutions in all the
state since the last New Year's day,
there are fourteen sorts of crime
and of these more than one-half or
818, have been for the violation of
the liquor law offenses which m
most of the states do not count at all.
Of the other offenses there has been
but one prosecution to every thou
. "The attorney general regards the
detective suits set in operation early
in the year 1834 against druggists
and manufacturers for neglect to con
form to the laws touching each of
these professions, as showing the ne
cessity of so amending these laws
that fines imposed -shall enuro to tho
state or county aud that prosecutions
bo left to the county attorney."
Also the following, from the same
journal of Dec 2G.18S4. The reader
will bear in mind that in Maine only
druggists and manufacturers can get
a license to sell intoxicating liquers:
"liquor dealers in tiie union.
The report of the commisssioner of
internal revenue for tho fiscal year
shows that 190,063 liquor dealers were
taxed m tho United btates, or one to
2S0 inhabitants by tho'census of 18S0.
Tho following showing the liquor
dealers in specimen states in tho va
rious parts of tho Union, with the
dram, shop legislation in each state,
will be of interest:

Maine has a greater number of sea
ports and seafaring people than any
other state in the Union, yet at the
last election, in November 18S4, she
voted, two to one, for a prohibition
amendment to her constitution.

B. S. Green of "Wisconsin, and fa
ther of Beuben Green, who was
drowned in the "Willapa river some
three weeks ago, arrived at this place
lost Tuesday on a visit to the country
and his son. He did not hear of tho
sad news of his son's death until he
arrived in Oysterville, and was great
ly surprised and sorrowed when it
wo3 told to him. He was on board
the snow-bound train this side of the
Dalles, and there got his toes frozen
so severely that when he arrived here
they wore in a horrible condition, and
it will be necessary to amputate the
large toe and also tho second too on
one foot in order to savo his foot. Be
fore he left home in "Wisconsin he
says tho thermometer had got as low
as 60 degrees below zero. Mr. Green
was accompanied by his son-in-law,
S. J, Stringer. Pacific Journal.
"When vessels or timber sink to
great depths in the ocean tho pres
sure is so great that water is forced
into the pores, and the wood becomes
too heavy to rise again. Even when
a ship is broken up the detached por
tions sink like lead, it is this pres
sure that makes it impossible for
divers to descend to any great depths.

There was a great commotion the
other night at a communist meeting,
when an excited orator said, "all
existing social institutions must bo
destroyed, wiped out, and swept
away. Had ho remarked that rheu
matism, dyspepsia, and debility must
be cleared out and swept away, aud
that Brown's Iron Bitters would do
tho cleaning and sweeping, ho would
have been loudly applauded. Brown's
