Hasten to See Honey as Tbey Pear
Hoge Will Try .to Escape
Prosecution Rests Ita
' Caw. .
A despatch from Portland says that
Martin U. iloge. on trial for land fraud,
had o far recovered this morning as to
walk into court and take the witness
tsnd. Special Prosecutor Ifeney's threat
to forfeit his bond if he did not appear
today seemed to have an elixir effect,
and the man whose counsel said yester
day probably would be dead today seem
ed to lie hlmelf this morning. ', His eyes,
which yesterday were luterles, were
bright when he came into court leaning
on the ami of Deputy Marshal Glenn
Bushy, V . . . t ...
That Hoge's alleged shamming of Ill
ness came near getting him into troubfc,
aide from any measures the government
might take, is evident from the fact that
VV, H, Bradsbawr Washington JUwling.
and L L Hamilton, bis bomifrnen, of
Medford, came to Portland this morning
for the express purpose of surrendering
him to the United States Marshal Tbey
had become auspicious that he might flee
certain that they got word of Mr.
lleney's threat to declare the bond for
feited, for last night they boarded the
Portland-bound train In a body and call
ed on Mr. nney. It Is probable, how
ever, that they will not surrender him
while the trial is in progress.
Today witnessed the resting of the
government's and the beginning of the
defense's case. Mr. Heney rested for the
prosecution with the tettimony of sev
eral additional witnesses, and Judge
O'Day began the defence with the tes
timony of Mrs. Ida M. Hoge, wife of
the defendant, and Hoge blmself. The
burden of Hoge's story wss that be had
been buncoed and "played for a aucker"
by Miller in common with the several
"batche" victimized from Placer and
Medford. , .. ,

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE OF THIS
CITY TAKES THE MATTER UP
AND WILL TRY TO HAVE THE
DREDGE PUT ON.
For some time it has been mooted
among many leading citizens, that the
old city channel extending Immediately
along the harbor line inshore and direct
to, and from. Tongue Point, was still
available and if cleared out in certain
shoal spots, a much better waterway,
and a shorter one. than the cross-bay
channel from Taylor's Sands, now used
by all the river pilots in the Portland
and up-river service.
Yesterday morning the Navigation
Committee of the Astoria Chamber of
Commerce. Messrs. J. Q. A. Bowlby,
B. Van Dusen and 0. W. Lounsberry,
aconimpanied by Captains Granville Reid
and J. W, Babbidge, went over the old
course on the steamer Volga.
Sounding were taken that demon
strate the channel to be in fine shape for
use, except at one or5 two points, where
some lijjht dredging will be necessary,
and it is the purpose of the Chamber of
Commerce to communicate with the
proper authorities with a view of re
establishing the old steamer course, as
the most advantageous in points of time
and directness, and the better facility it
offers for cleaning itself and carrying
the sands to sea instead of deflecting
them Into Young's Bay, which is the
ease with the newer trans-bay cliannel
in use now.
AH citizens interested in holding a
Regatta for the year 1906, are requested
to meet at the Police Court Room of the
Cityi Hall, Wednesday e"j'cning, July
28, 1900, at 8 o'clock P. M. Subscrip
tions up to date amount to $1306.00,
which amount could probably be Increas
ed to $2500, The committee considering
this amount insufficient to defray ex
penses, urgently requests .all interested
to attend and express their views on the
The meeting called by the Regatta
Committee for tonight, t the city bait,
to finally and, fully determine the moot
ed question of the 1906 Regatta, should
I well attended, If only to lend emphasis
to the decision whatever it may be.
The committee ha had a hard task In
securing subscriptions, and baa bad mora
or less cause to doubt the public desire
for the festival, but are not willing to
relinquish the work utiles it Is mad
evident that the people do not want it.
They have secured subscriptions to
the amount of $1300, and this with the
$700 on hand from the last Regatta,' and
the $000 left from the Fourth of July
Celebration, makes a possible $2500, to
operate on, and it is not at all improb
sble the necessary $1500 can be readily
raised at the hands of those who have
not yet subscribed, and those who may
increase sums they have already given
in thla behalf.
However, the whole city will have a
chance to declare Itself, singly, and en
masse, tonight, and the issue ought to be
settled. It will be well if Astoria can
contrive to give her popular and own
peculiar entertainment and if the decis
ion falls that way, the Astoria n will ba
squarely behind it until it is closed in
its usual blaze of glory and success.
"TRY AGAIN" ADVICE.
You say you have tried a dozen time,
and failed. Well, what of it! Try
again. Nothing worth while is won with
out effort "Keeping everlasting at if
brings success but be sure you go at
it In tbe right way. It isn't so much the
doing, as the manner of doing.
Suppose conditions are adverse to
success. Are you going to let that handi
cap you. or are you going to rise above
iet and make things essier for eomeone
else J The world wants your smiles, your
hopes, your aspiration. She already has
too many frowns and tear. , ,
Open mind and heart. Be awake to
possibilities of the moment. Opportun
ity, like a will-o' the-wisp. flits before bim
who has no time or is too indolent stretch
forth his hand and makes her his own.
Lovingly she comrades with him whose
wish is will; whose will is to dare;
whose daring' is to achieve.
Remember energy, ambition, and tire
less effort alone spell the great secret
of success. Be surw your vision is clear,
your purpose right, then push on with
might and main. "Let nothing you dis
He Likes Astoria. W. L. Gould, repre
senting the American De Forest Wireless
Telegraph Company, one of the biggest
commercial institutions In the country
moner its newer enterprises, arrived in
the city yesterday, in the interest of bis
principals, and will spend some time
here, ne is delighted with the city and
its cool, bracing airs, and says it bea's
anything he has seen on the coast for
summer comfort. He is an interesting
man with an interesting business, and
will meet a good many people before he
leaves the city. Astoria is to be the first
point in Oregon to have a station, on ac
count of its situation on the coast.
Operation will shortly be commenced on
this station. The company have just
finished the stations at San Francisco
and Eureka, Astoria is to be the next
point. With this station completed and
in operation, Astoria will be in direct
communication wth Alaska, as well as
having a direct connection with Hono
lulu, the Philippines, and the Orient.
BIG CROWDS AT STAR.
Usual Crowded House Greets Willard
Company Last Night
Asain last night the Star theatre was
crowded with a most fashionable au
dience. In fact, it seemed that all the
elite were there showing that the peo
ple of Astoria appreciates the most beau
tiful of all plays, "Kathleen Mavour
neen,'' most Justly so too, for it is ex
ceedingly well produced by the Willard
Company. Mr. Williard a Terranee
O'Moor, has the most beautiful interpre
tation of the part. The various meniDcrs
of the company are all most excellent
in their parts.
Thursday nijrht the chance of program
