ASTORIA'S LEADING HOUSEKUUNISHKIIS ,
A large yellow smallpox sign adorned
the door of the county court room yes
terday. "Smallpox," It read; "no one
allowed to enter these premises with
out the consent of the attending physi
cian, under penalty of arrest or im
prisonment." It appears that C. J.
Curtis came up from Seaside to attend
to his duties as secretary of the repub
lican county committee, and that the
meeting of the committee was held In
the county court room. Curtis posted
the notice, which was the first Intima
tion any of hin friends had that he was
afflicted with the disease. When he
left the court house he forgot to take
down the sign, and during the entire
day it stared visitors in the face.
Doubtless Mr. Curtis will be quaran
tined, although residence at Seaside Is
regarded as practically the same thing.
things will select 10 delegate to. rep
resent Clatsop county at the state con
vention and an equal number of repre
sent the county at the congressional
convention. ' The Astoria, member of
the county committee wOl assemble
again March 22 for the purpose of e
lectlng a list of delegate to th county
convention from the three city ward
Thl list will be published Immediately,
so that all voter may know Just what
ha been done. Thla will be an inno
vation on the part of the committee
At yesterday's meeting the county com
mittee declared Itself for the renomlna-
tlon of F. A. Moore for supreme judge,
Thomas A. McBrlde for circuit Judge
and Harrison Allen for district attor
ney, and it Is probable the congression
al and state delegation will .be In
vtructed for those gentlemen.
Astoria must hsv a sea wall.
The committee of ten ha organised
by electing R. li. Dyer chairman and
R. E. Carruther secretary, The com
mlttee la now formulating plana for
carrying on Its work and expects to
start at once. Every property owner
In the dstrlct wilt be interviewed and
an expression obtained from biro.. At
a later meeting of taxpayer the opin
ion thus secured will be submitted
and upon the report of tpe committee
will depend what action will be taken
towards building the sea wall. It Is
not generally understood that. In & cer
tain sense, the sea wall will really cost
property owners nothing. The propos
al Informally aubmltted by Mr. Semplo
wa that the company should be se
cured for Us work with mortgages on
the land reclaimed. This land will be
made of great value by filling, and the
property owner will have the additional
benefit of 10 years' time in which to
make payment. The increase in the
value of the property will be much
greater than the cost of the improve
ment. James W. Welch said yester
day he- believed the tide land should
be filled from the hills, instead of from
the channel, as the government will
make provision for river improvement,
but not for Improvement of any city
property. k There 1 much sentiment tot
the improvement, and the belief is ex
pressed that the present undertaking
will be carried out.
Property owner, build the sea wall.

County Judge Trenchard yesterday
shipped to Architect Lazarus a sample
of the native stone which is to be used
In the construction of the new court
house. Judge Trenchard said yester
day the architect was now working on
the plana decided upon at the recent
conference, and he expressed the be
lief work on the new structure would
be commenced In May, if all goes well.
Mr. Lazarus seems to think the court
house can be completed in a year, al
though, of course, the length of time
required for the work Is problemati
cal. However, no time is to be lost by
the county court either in getting the
work under way or In pushing It once
the start lis made. It has been fovmA
Impracticable to get along with a single
vault, and two vaults will be installed.
Each vault will be accessible from two
offices. The building te to be of 120
feet frontage and 100 feet depth and
the arrangement will be the same as
wa recently stated in The Astorlan.
The county clerk's office Is to be in the
northeast corner of the court house and
the sheriff's office in the southeast cor
ner. The county court room and coun
ty Judge's office are . to occupy the
northwest corner, and the assessor's and
treasurer's offices the southwest cor-
. The circuit court room, circuit
judge's office, district attorney omce,
school superintendent's office, jury
rooms, etc., are to be located on the
reoond oor. There will be a main en
trance on Commerclul street and a Bide
entrance on Seventh street. The sec
ond floor will be 12 feet above the level
of the street and 17 steps wiH l"ad
from the pavement to the main en
trance. The distance from the ground
to the base of the dome wilt be 60 feet

The fraud for which Seymour was
convicted has, on several occasions,
been practiced on the Brooklyn transit
companies. Aided by colleagues, whose

mour, hearing of trolley and "V acci
dents in the city, it is alleged, would
collect damages from the companies
for alleged injuriea to hi "wife" or
other member of his family, Some
times, it is alleged, he would go out of
commission himself, and lay up for re
pairs until his "Injuriea" were settled
for by the company he chose to nego
tiate with. The victimized companies
would usually settle In lieu of threat
ened damage suits, .
Seymour wa apprehended in Phila
delphia through an Investigation into
a damage complaint after a recent car
collision in that city. Reading of the
accident he went from New York to
Philadelphia, after seeing to It that th
woman assumed her usual appciirance
of being an accident victim, and thera
attempted to collect money for his wife;
claiming 5000 damages. ' Detective It
O. EiJcox investigated the case and
found the gang, and testified against
