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 time. 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 Astoria. QUAKE AT MARYSVILLE. MARYSVILLE, CaL May 30.-A slight earthquake occurred at noon to day.

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.
