Very Small Business. For years pat
it has been the custom of the senior
class of the Astoria High School to hoi-t
it class flag on the staff of the build
ing. and keep It afloat during the exam
and graduation period, and thi they
did a few day ago, in conformity with
the time-honored practice; but someone,
with a poor sense of fun, or a witless
idea of "doing something," ha delib
erately purluined the banner and con
waled it. Such an act. is neither gen
nine skylarking, nnr a manly case of re
piinl. It would W well to restore the
las emblem, even if it ha to be done,
surreptitiously, and be apnred the con
fusion of discovery.

There is no change in the situation on
the waterfront nt San Francisco and
the strike among the coasting bailors is
t ill maintained. Yesterday the steam
schooner Sea Fount succeeded in getting
onie men to take the place of the
union sailors who left and the vessel
sailed for Mendocino. The I'mnUlU

probable they will be shifted to the

Pacific Coast Steamship Company is
bringing from Alaska about 100 Chil
kat. Indians to take the place of the
