the sudden entry of a huge wagon
pole through one of the dining room
windows, and the general crashing of

great tongue coming within an ace
of smashing into a party at one of
the tables, It seems that one of the
big truck of the Prael-Eigner Tran
fir Company, on the corner above the
hotel had been turned loose by some
youngsters, and it took it own delir
ious way down the declivity of Duane
Mrcct, and when it neared the house,
turned in toward it over the sidewalk,
with the threatening result allud
ed to.

It looks as if the saloonkeepers
who have been in fear and trembling
the past week or more over the pos

the session of the grand jury might
just as well begin to cheer up once
again. In the colloquial language of
the street there seems to be "nothing
At the meeting of the Civic Im
provement League at the Presbyter
ian church last night nothing but mat
ters of a routine nature were passed
upon, it was stated at the 'conclusion
of the session. There was nothing
to give out to the public. It is under
stood that the efforts to secure evi
dence against some of the saloon
keepers and gamblers have fallen
through, if any such efforts were
made. Those who may have felt some
trepidation over what might possibly
happen in the grand jury room when
some representatives of the Civic
League arrived there can, apparently,
draw a long breath of relief.
At all events, it is known that the
impression that the League had evi
dence to submit to the grand jury
turns out to be erroneous. The stories
of "detectives" from Seattle or Port
land being' here to catch the poor
unsuspecting publicans -on the Sab
bath day may possibly have had their
origin in the hopes of some or the
fears of others. Anyway, the League
apparently has unwittingly given
some of the saloonkeepers quite a
nervous scare, and the information
that there is "nothing doing" will un
questionably be received with heart
felt relief.

843 Commercial Street
Seventeen residents of Clatsop
county and presumably of the city of
Astoria were admitted as citizen of
the United State before Judge Mc
liride in the circuit court yesterday
afternoon. Their admission means
that they are now citizen of thi
country in each and every sense of
the word and no longer owe or may
extend allegiance to the king or po
tentate of any other country: Many
of these, however, under a peculiar
condition of the Oregon laws, have
already been voters. The list of 17
is a follows: '',..

According to the law of the State
of Oregon, still continued from the
early days when it was deemed highly
desirable to gain citizens upon almost
any terms, a foreigner may come
here and may take out his "first pa
pers" the day he arrive. That is, he
then files his declaration of intention
to become a citizen and then, after
being in the state one year, he may
vote upon all matters in the state,
county and municipality. Hence he
is a citizen in the fullest sense of the
term for most practical purposes by
merely taking out his first papers. He
may not feel any great need or de
sire to actually become a citizen of
the United States, by taking out his
second paper?. 'as did the 17 before
Judge McBride yesterday.
"The condition of the law in this
s.'ate places a premium on this imper
feet citizenship," said Judge McBride
yesterday to a representative of The
Astorian. "After taking out his first
papers the man can vote, can buy,
sell and hold property, and has other
privileges of citizenship. No particu
lar qualifications have been demand
ed of him. He is still exempt from
jury and military duty, and thus the
laws appear to really place a premium
on his imperfect citizenship.
"In addition to this, having all
these privileges, there is not the
same feeling of necessity to prepare
for the qualifications demanded of
him before he can be admitted as a
citizen of the United States. To be
admitted as a citizen of this nation,
instead of merely a citizen of the
State of Oregon, requires that the
applicant should be able to read and
understand the constitution of the
United States, and have certain other
The grand jury remained in session
during the day yesterday, and last
evening it was said that no indict
ments were expected then. Just what
the jury is deliberating over is not
known, of course, though it is pre
sumed to be merely some of the or
dinary criminal matters. The fishery
matters will have to be placed' before
the grand jury before any action can
be taken, as the new Jaw provides that
all prosecutions for felonies, and mis
demeanors of the character that are
tried above the justice courts must
be on indictments first returned by
the grand juries. It is said to be
quite likely, however, that certain
matters of considerable interest in
the community may be brought to
the attention of the jury by citizens.
There were six decrees of divorce
entered yesterday in the circuit court
as follows:

In a short time the city authorities
will enter about 8S0 tax title deeds!
for record in the office of the county
clerk, these deeds being for properties
that havbeen sold by the city of As
toria for delinquent assessments due
for street improvements. While the
number at first glance may seem as
tonishinglyylarge, nevertheless an ex
amination tends to show that it is
not as bad as it looks upon the sur
face. Virtually all of the deeds are for
properties owned by non-residents,
and many of th,e lands involved are
small and unimportant lots off to
one side. The street improvements
are made and the owners residing in
di.tant cities pay little or no atten
tion to the notices they receive of
the proposed street improvements, or
it may be that such notice does not
reach them. The assessments then
become a lien against the properties,
and the city has the right to sell to
enforce its lien almost immediately
after the money is due. Usually,
however, the sales are not made un
til quite a long time after the proper
advertising which is presumably

These 850 sales have taken place
within the past three years. But t
further show that the matter need
not be given the importance that it
at first indicates, these sales may be
compared with some 400 deeds of a
similar tcind that were filled in the
year 1905. These 400 properties theat
sold were, in practically every in
stance redeemed within a fairly short
time. Hence it is probable that most
pi these 850 pieces of property will
also be redeemed sooner or later.
The owners have three years ia
which to redeem, and then the sher
iff sells in what is called the "dead
horse" sale, and there is then another
three years in which to redeem.
