At 3:30 Hunday warning two Finns,
John Hanglcr snd Oscar Fetonrr, had
a fight on the cornier of Sixth and As
tor streets and were promptly Jailed
by Officer I'hllllps.j Fetoner was re
leased on ball, which was forfaited by
his non-appearance; for trial yesterday
afternoon. Hangler appeared and tes
tified that It was an unprovoked as
sault upon him by Feloner, stating,
with an air of fnjured Innocence, that
h hud never hud a fight In his life,
and that he was simply throwing up
his hands to ward oft the blows of his
assailant. Officer Phillips testified that
he saw him rtrlke Fetonr but that
he was struck first; furthermore, that
the two had had a slight scrap before
on the same night, and had been ordered
to keep off tho streets, which they had
not done. Cotisjqijently Judge Nelson
Imposed the light fine of $5. A com
mon drunk was also fined $5, but 'bis
flno was remitted because he hal al
ready served two days In jail sobering
up. A sullor from the Harlech Castle
wss also fined $5 for drunkenness.
Yesterdoy afternoon, promptly at 2
o'clock, Receiver C. A. Coolldge began
the reading of the notice of receiver's
sale of the street railway company's
property, In front if the court house
do"r. Many prominent attorneys and a
f"W capitalists were present, and It was
thought by some that there would be
some spirit. -d bidding. After complet
ing the reading of the notice Mr. Cool
Idite stated that ten per cent of the
amount of the bid must be paid down
or the property would be resold. The
first bid was that of G. J. Mltch il, rep
resenting tht General Electrical Com
pany, who offered $29,000. He was
quickly followed by Attorney John M.
Oarln. who offered $25,000. No one
else bidding, the proiTty was knocked
down to him at that price. Mr. Gear
In stated that he wai bidding for
a man numd George C. Holllster, who
('id not live In Portland. He further
stated that new cars tvould be built to
repine the Noah's arks which now per
ambulate our streets. Mr. Mitchell re
ported that the successful bidder was
frum New York, or at least that the
Instructions to bid In that name came
frcm New York. It was reported on
the street last night that the man had
large interests In Seattle.
KERR SCHOTT'3 CONCERT. '
Encorj After Encore at the Opera
House Last Night.
A moderate-sized, but very appre
ciative audi.'n:e greeted Kerr Anton
Schott and Astoria's local musical
celebrities at the opera house last
night. A triglot rendition of famous
musical compositions by muMcIans of
the first rank does not often come to
Astoria -and deserved a packed house.
The German and Scotch songs were a
delight to the musically Inclined, to
which class most of the audience evi
The first piece was encored but did
not respond. Herr Schott was called
out for a second Scotch song. The ap
plause at the conclusion of Miss Hob
son's song was deafening, and though
she held back with.' her usual modesty.
she was finally persuaded to respond.
In fact every selection met with great
applause and an encore was insisted
upon. The memory of Herr Schott's
magnificent voice will, long remain
with those who had the great priv
ilege of hearing him last night. The
feeling and expression manifested In
Mr. Belcher's solo, added to his clear
ringing notes, made his effort one of
the most pleasing of the evening. Many
of the officers of the cruiser Philadel
phia were present.
WHAT OCR FLAG STANDS FOR.
Wherever the Amei lean flag Is raised
In token of sovereignty. It stands for
liberty, Independence and equality.
What our flug Is to the nation, Hostet
ter's Stomach Bitters Is to the Individ
ual, Inasmuch as it not only gives you
freedom from your aliments, but pro
tects your system In such a manner
that they cannot return. When your
stomuch gets out of order, causing
you to belch after eating, or when you
are so nervous that you toss about all
night, unable to sleep, you should cer
tainly try It, because It will strengthen
your stomach, steady your nerves, and
Induce sound, healthy sleep, and for
Indigestion, constipation and biliousness
there Is nothing to equal It. Rheuma
tism Is also counteracted by Its direct
action on the kidneys.
