Flowers Were Scarce, But Enough to
go ' Around Splendid Memorial
Services Last Evening With Music,
Drills and Addresses.
Yesterday, despite the chill of the
belated season and the threats of rain
that portended all the day, and
notably observed by the people
of Astoria and Clatsop County
generally. By team and by boat, the
hosts of thoughtful and loving among
the living, sought out the graves of
the cherished dead, in all the ceme
teries in and out of the city; and the
reports that come from Ocean View,
Greenwood, Pioneer, Hillside, and
Granger tell of hundreds of hundreds
that visited them and marked the last
grave in each, until none was neg
lected anywhere.
In spite of the paucity of flowers
they were in evidence on all sides, not
as profuse as in the years of earlier
and more abundant season, but ample
to mark the day and the last resting
place of those to whom they are an
nually dedicated. All day long car
riages and wagons and auto's were
driven in and out of the city and the
river and bay was thick with boats in
public and private service, in this de
voted behalf.
Last night, under the auspices of
the dishing Post of the Grand Army
of the Republic, and the Ladies of the
Grand Army, there was held at the
Astoria Theatre, a splendid memorial
meeting at which a solid thousand of
men, women and children were pres
ent to round out the duties and senti
ment of the sad yet great day of the
year. Charles II. Abercrombie pre
sided at the meeting and was sup
ported on the stage by the following
staff of honored old veterans: B. F.
Allen, Thomas Dealcy. A. D. Craig.
O. F. Morton, Charles S. Wright, A.
Scherneckau, William Dench, C. Tim
mons and Mr. Reed; Howard M.
Brownell holding the post of orator
of the evening.
A fine program had been arranged
for the occasion and it was executed
in detail without a flaw, and with
general and generous satisfaction to
all present. It consisted of songs,
recitations, drills, and instrumental
music, the children being delightfully
conspicuous in many of the features
of the evening, especially in the drills
which were unique and beautiful. It
is impossible to seggrcgatc the clever
people and groups that won distinct
and deserved enconiums during the
progress of the long and appropriate
list fif contributions, and the declara
tion that only the happiest and heart
iest of expressions were heard on all
sides at its close, must suffice for the
The address of the evening was de
livered by Howard M. Hrownell, the
well known young attorney of this
city, who spoke feelingly and elo
quently upon the theme of the hour
and the memories of the day, direct
ing his periods in part to the old
soldiers with tributes of honor for the
part they took in the great of the 60's
and reviewing that conflict in terms
of interest and with clever adherence
to the leading historic facts; and in
part, to the children, admonishing
them to cling to the memories and the
examples and the lessons of the war,
and so bend their lives and characters
as to make them, one and all, fitting
heirs of the tremendous gift of a re
deemed and glorified country, saved
and re-united, and bequeathed to them
by the old Grand Army.
Mrs. C. H. Abercrombie was in
charge of the music and she left noth
ing to be desired from the first to
the last note of it. The meeting was
counted to be among the most suc
cessful ever held in this interest in

About 600 letters arc being sent
throughout the United States cover
ing every soft wood manufacturer in
the country by Manager Whyte of
the Chamber of Commerce, calling
their attention to the fact that there
is probably a larger supply of soft
wood or Douglass fir, spruce and
hemlock in the vicinity of Astoria
than anywhere else in the world and
advising them .to establish their
branch or additional factories in As
toria, as there is enough soft wood
wasted and burned in local sawmills
refuse burners to manufacture all of
the matches and all the soft wood ar
ticles of commerce in the United
States for a considerable number of
years. Mr. Whyte goes on to ex
plain the excellent water and rail
transportation facilities of Astoria
which will be greatly improved in a
few years by the completion of the
Panama Canal; and which will give
the manufacturers an advantage over
the Atlantic markets, and in case they
should want to get well established
here before that time, that could not
be met by any of their eastern com
petitors, Mr. Whyte concludes by
inviting their correspondence into
detail, and assures them of Astoria's
hearty co-operation.
Sheriff M. R. Pomeroy Has Just
Claim on the Renewed Suffrage
of Clatsop.
When an officer has fairly and hon
estly performed the functions of an
important office, entrusted to him by
the people, and no complaint is of
record against him, he is, logically, in
line for re-consideration and re-election
to the trust if he shall want it.
We sell quality groceries at pop
ular prices and guarantee every

Acme Grocery Co.
This is the attitude of Clatsop's pres
ent sheriff. Mr. Pomeroy has done
his unqualified best to till the task
assigned him two years ago, and has
made known his desire to again serve
the people, and there is no reason why
he should be denied the confirmation
and approval such re-election will
There is no adequate reason for
refusing him the office; he has done
the work handled the big money
trust his office imposed with charac
teristic ardor and good faith, and
there will be few to say him nay in
the ballot boothes of Clatsop tomorrow.
