Astoria Has 150
Geo. B. Thomas, of Portland,' act
ing under the Rose Festival Commit
tee, has built a splendid grandstand,
200 feet in length, which will safely
and comfortably hold 2000 people,
from which its occupant can behold
the glories of four fine parades, two
by day and two by night. Reserva
tions for people from this city ISO in
number will be made until Friday
next, at $4 for the full season, or at
$1 for each for the parades. Those
of this city who desire to secure this
advantage will do well to sec Chair
man Lamar of the Chamber of Com
merce committee, who will see that
alt reservations are promptly made.
Must Pass Quarantine
It ha ben held by many people that
United States war vessel are exempt
from quarantine inspection on enter
ing port, but inquiry at the office. of
Dr. Holt, the federal quarantine ofh
cer for this port and district, elccits
the fact that all naval vessels arc re
quired to be boarded and passed,
though there is a provision of law
whereby the certificate of the physi
cian in charge of the vessel may be
accepted by the quarantine officer,
and thus the necessity for muster
and individual examination is obviat
cd, and this is more a matter of de
partmental courtesy than anything
else. But Uncle Sam's ships are
amenable to quarantine just the same
as any other ship if there happens to
be anything wrong on board, and they
instantly pass under the jurisdiction
of the local quarantine station until
they arc "safe to be at large."

occasion. Miss Wise was assisted by
Miss Nona Lawler, a gifted soloist
whose work was received with de
light. The performance which Miss
Wise gave was elaborate and difficult,
as well as beautiful, in numbers and
rendition and confirms her as a de

musician, and embraced seven bril-

space in your columns," this time for a
brief effort to allay the apprehension
of our 40,000 women adherents, who

the syndicate articles now going the
rounds of the state press, sent out by
Rev. Clarence True Wilson of the

said articles being accompanied by
cash at advertising rates, which many
county editors are as able or willing
to refuse as the writer of the follow

publication because it is brief, brave
