allegation and defied Officer Coffmnn,
the "alligator.'! He said the wind had
changed from the east to sou'west,
end It always had a deleterlou ef
fect on hi mental faculties. The nme
story had been repeated so often that
Judgt) Anderson fined him 15, and, In

He found Hill with an opium pipe In

! mediately arrested Hill and a young

Welch and wife returned homo yes-
i terdny from a two months' visit to the
i east. Mr. Welch was sent os a rep
resentative of the Odd Fellows of
Oregon to represent that organization
In the supreme lodge at Toronto. Mr.
: Welch slated that they enjoyed the
trip, being the first time that either he
or his wife had ever visited In the

was dull In Astoria, he repllod that
he had visited many eastern cities
' where It was more dull than here.
Both Mr. Welch and hs wife enjoyed
excellent health on their trip and were
glad to arrive home again. He says
there are lots of places on earth be
sides Astoria, but that Astoria Is home
and they are both glad to be back here
once more.

ple of the First Presbyterian church
are going to hold a big fair and sale
of dainty and useful articles In the

rlsch, and wife, to William Pltkanen,

Trial by Jury The largest and most
enthusiastic audience ever assembled
In the Star theater greeted tbe "Trial
by Jury" operetta last night To say
that the audience enjoyed the enter
tainment and that It waa well pre
sented would be superfluous. To enu
merate the different characters or eu
logize any one of them, would be to
Include each and every one that par
ticipated. Sufficient to say, It waa
one of the best and most ably pre
sented entertainments ever given by
local talent in Astoria, So well did
each one take their respective roles
tbat to a stranger It would be difficult
to distinguish them from profession
als. Tbe Trial by Jury will be re
peated again tonight and those who
did not witness it last night should
avail themselves of the opportunity.
It Is deservedly worthy of special men
tion and should receive the patronage
of the amusement loving public.
Will Remain in Firm Alfred R.
Johnson, with Johnson Bros., prom
inent grocerymen, on Twelfth street,
has decided to retain an interest in
the new firm of Scholfleld & Mattson,
and will remain with them. This will
be pleasing news to the many friends
of Mr. Johnson, through whose effort
was due the pronounced success of
the old firm of Johnson Bros. The
new firm starts out with a most sub
stantial business and liberal patron
age, which no doubt will be continued
to the new firm, If merit and square
dealing is a criterion.
Road Cleared Roadmaster Frye had
a force of men engaged yesterday In
clearing the dirt from the road lead
ing to the Tongue Point mill and ex
pects to have the oroad free and in
condition for permanent travel today.
