of $-100 to await the action of the cir
cuit court of Columbia county on a
charge of giving away liquor to minors,
George went to Clatskanie to attract
votes for Rainier In the county seat con
test. He was making great headway
In his own suave electioneering manner
whe he was arrested and hauled before
Justice Blackford on a charge of giving
away liquor on election day. This fell
Hat, however, and be was then arrest
ed on the second charge.- He asked for
day's grace In which to secure witness
ex. but the court shook hi head and
said "nay, nay: not with your agent of
th blind goddess." Deputy District
Attorney Powel then submitted the cae
of the prosecutl-m, and George was held
to the circuit court as stated. Attorney
Matt Hughe of' Astoria, representing
him. and together. they put up the ne
cessary bond. Feeling over the county
seat contest ran nigh at Clatskanie. ana

calculate that St. Helens Js not such a
much," . ;

more than four, or five fish while the
sWners abve Tongue point had all they
could do to handle the great catches
made', Thre Is, however, a general
slacking up of the run. There Is some
Indication that another run may be

as very good catches were made on the
Washington aide yesterday. A party of
Chinook fishermen visited Astoria ya
terday and made a call on the canner

derstood that an agreement was reach

not given out.

STEAMER GUT HOWARD TIME
TABLE The time table of the quarter
master' steamer Major Guv Howard
for the month of August was received
yesterday, and is printed below. Busi
ness men and shippers generally will do
well to bear In trtind the fact that the
boat sails according to tides, and It
behooves them to have their freight on
the dock before the hour of sailing in
order that It may be loaded In time.
Often a few minutes make a great
deal of difference, and It does not do to
deviate from the schedule adopted:

JUDGE McBRIDE REVERSED A
Portland paper publishes a dispatch
from Salem stating that the supreme
court has reversed the decision of the
circuit court of Clatsop county, Judge
McBrlde, In the matter of Reid, Mur-
dock ft Co., appellant, vs. Alaska Fish
ermen's Packing Company, respondent.
)plnlon by Justice Bean. The dispatch
says: This waa an action to recover
damages for a breach of contract to
sell and deliver io plaintiff 2500 cases
of canned salmon. It was stipulated
among other things, "that .the salmon
may be packed In Alaska, but shall be
exactly like Puget Sound fancy sock-
eye. One of the defences urged by the
defendant was that the contract was
Impossible of fulfillment and was there
fore void. The lower court gave an In
struction to the Jury covering this
theory of the case, and the supreme
court holds that the Instruction was er
ror because it was inapplicable to the
case. The opinion says "Unless ah
act Is Inherently impossible within, its
sclfa contract to do it ia binding, al
though the pei'fornifince may be Im
probable, or even Impossible, to the
promisor." It is held to be clear, that
salmon of the kind described can te
packed In Alaska, even if they must be
taken there to be packed, but If it were
intended that the salmon should be
found In Alaska It does not appear that
none of the Wnd specified can be found
there." says the court.
