The charter commission met last night
In the city ftta.II with twelve member
present. In the absence of the chairman.
W. T. Kcolficld presided, A communi
cation wa read and referred to the
Jndiolury committee from John Nord;
strom, relative to the matter of atreet
Judge Taylor aubmitted an amend
ment for consideration providing that no
fiMiiehlse lie granted by the city for
moie than thirty year, instead of
seventy-five year a now provided in
tlto charter. The amendment also dealt
with the manner of street Improvements,
with especial reference to those atreet
wliercon carline were operated. It
piovlde that the atreet car company
hIimII pay fur the improvement and also
the repair of that part of the etreet
occupied by the track, and that where
two track are laid on the same treet
siilc by side, the company shall pay for
the improvement and repair of the space
between the track. There wa con
siderable di:uion upon . the point,
whether the street car company should
not lie required to pay for driving the
piliryj supporting tym street, and it
seemed, to be the general sentiment that
the company should bear the expense.
An amendment adopted last niglit di
vide the city into four ward, a fol
low! First ward, extending a far as
Sixth atheeti 2nd ward, from Sixth
to 18th j 3rd ward, from 18th to 3th
street, and the fourth ward from 3Sth
street east to city limit. The amend
ment also provide for two councilmen
from each ward, and a councilman-at-large,
making nine councilmen in all.
The councilmen will hold office four
year each, excepting thee ouncllman-at-large,
who will be elected every two
yeara. A the plan I,, five councilmen
will go out every two year, thu in
suring a majority of new councilmen
every two year.
After a discission of a number of
other matter the commission adjourned.
Nearly .Half Subscribed The- Men's
League of the First Presbyterian
church are working steadfastly in the
matter of securing the necessary sub
scriptions to make certain the fine
course of four lectures promised by the
Lyceum Bureau, if they shall get the
required quota of 300 subscriber at
2 each. At sundown yesterday they
had received neay one half of the
number and all who subscribed did it
so cheerfully and with such apparent
satisfaction with the good thing In
store for them, that the representatives
of the League do not fear failure in the
pleasant project. It is rare good for
tune to know that one is to have the
opportunity of hearing such people a

Meagre Fish Reports The reason to
date ha not yielded any startling access
at any of the canneries hereabout. The
up-river traps are doing but very little;
the Chinook have dropped off very
perceptibly and there are but few steel
heads reported yesterday, with silver
side in the same scant category. Gill
netters are doing but little, the run of
large fish being practically over.
J. E. Bradley Probably Drowned
That John E. Bradley, a passenger on
the steamer Lurline, was drowned in the
Columbia river the other day while the
bont was bound for Portland, is held
to be certain. When the steamer was
between Cathlamet and Stella, Engi
neer Sundley says he heard a splash in
the water, but at the time thought
nothing of it.

This Wis Luck Night before last as
Mis Leinenweber, sister of Hiram
Idnenweber, got off the A. & C. R.
R. train and boarded the electric car
to Tide down town, she missed a val
uable gold watch. Search was imme
diately made through the train and
along the depot platform, but the
watch was no where to be found. Af
ter an hour's search Mr. Leinenweber
gave up the hunt and stood waiting for
a car, having concluded that someone
had picked up the watch. When the
car in charge of Motorman Miller
stopped at the depot, Mr. Miller noted
Leinenweber' worried look, and in
quiring the cause, wag informed of the
loss. At the time he we standing on
the ground at the head of hU car, and
almost without hesitation, he said,
"Why, here's the watch," and coolly
stooped down and picked it up, .lying
not two inches from the rail. The
watch had evidently fallen to the
ground, as Mjss Leinenweber stepped on
the ear. To say that the owner was
rejoiced at the recovery of her property
would be stating it lightly.
' F. L. Nelson, deputy county assessor
of Clackamaa county, was in the city
yesterday on a business trip.
Mr. and Mr. E. A. Thatcher of Sa
lem, arrived in the city yesterday, via
the steamer Telegraph, on s visit to

whither he went almost immediately
upon hi arrival from Alaska, to recu

newed and robust as usual.
Mr. and Mrs. W. D. Rogers of Hood

home of Mrs. Rogers' brother, Oak Sut
ton, on Exchange street. Mr. Rogers
is one of the noted photographic artists
of the state.
H. J. Schulderman. general manager
of the Merchants' Express, at Portland,
was in the city yesterday, on business,
the guest of Sheriff M. R. Pomeroy.
A Thoroughly Surprised Preacher
Pastor Trumbull of the Baptist church,
was not a little surprised last evening
by the unusually large attendance at
the prayer-meeting. He was still more
surprised when at the close of the
meeting, Mr. O. B. Estes came forward
and on behalf of the members of the
church and friends, in a very neat lit
tle speech, expressed their love and
respect for their retiring pastor and
presented him with a modest looking
little purse. The climax of surprise
came when, on opening it, he found
therein five twenty-dollar gold pieces,
as a parting token of their appreciation.
Mr. and Mrs. Trumbull feel that in
leaving Astoria they are parting from
many dear friends and from much that
has made life worth living for and hope
and pray that their places may be filled
by those who shall attain to like fa
vor with the people.
DAVID HASUM TONIGHT.
The Brandon Players presented "The
Deserter" again last night to a most
appreciative audience and tonight they

sation, of Westcott's famous novel and
the atory la followed very closely, every
scene and character being introduced.
Darid Harum as a novel had the larg
est sale of any book of it time and
the play has slwaya been equally pop
ular. Mr. Carl CaldwelL who impersonates
Harum, is said to make an ideal one,
having recently come from the East,
where he was playing the part with a
oe night stand attraction.
