Hon. A. J. 'Dufur made the Ciikoxiclk

effort, as it is confined to sbu a few per
sons, to secure funds "for a decent repre
sentation at the Chicago World's Fair.
The history of his efforts in 1876 should
be read again now, showing what ought
to stimulate Oregonians to duty.

J. Hudsaker of White Salmon, has in
cultivation forty acres or less. He has
made 4000 pounds of bacon which will
bring $500 ; 500 .pounds .of lard, will
bring $62.50 ; has sold fresh pork amount
ing to $75 ; $210 worth of beef ; 300
worth of dried fruit ; $250 worth of green
fruit, and other little odds and ends,
amounting to $135 making a total of
$1532.50 from a cultivation of forts'
acres; and the orchard is dnlv in its
infancy. When all of our bench land is
in fruit, as it should be, a nice little town
at this point will be. the result.--(oWen-d&le

The cutting into the bow of the steam
er Astorian, a few nights -since, is con
strued by some as showing that the U.
P. R. "system" are determined to con
trol the Columbia if they have to sink
their opponents steamers. -Hon. H. B.
Parker, owner of the Astorian, is a hard
hitter iu a contest like this, and is able
to hold his own in the courts ' or else
where. It is said that this collision with
the R. R. Thompson cannot be shown
as at all "purely accidental," when it
comes to an investigation.-The Astorian
may not be so easily got rid of as was
her predecessor, the Clara Parker.
The eccentricities of Vic. Trivett may
never die out. Every "once in a while"
something springs up to remind us of
him and them. The latest is the China
man's dream. Vic. in bis day, held that
story as a club over the head of many an
anti-Chinese. He advocated the coming
of the Chinese, for, said he: ' "They
come here to work, and there are now
too many iellows here loafing about do
ing nothing, trying to live off their wits ;
they conje into competition with me ;
and I tell you I am better pleased with
the Chinese than with . them." Vic.
always asserted, that if a white man or
boy wilfully abused ; a Chinese, some
awful punishment would come upon
them for their action, and the fate of
the packers who killed their Chinese
passengers in 1860, was related with - a
favorite relish on all occasions. Poor
Vic. "With all thy faults" there are yet
many who tenderly regard a me.nory
for you. ...':' '. '. . v
"There is an effort being made by the
U. P. Company to get our merchants to
sign a freight contract for the coming
year, and thereby prevent all competi
tion and opposition on the river. A
number of merchants were talking the
matter over this morning, and all were
pronounced in their determination to
sign no agreement to give all freight to
any one company, especially the U. P.
The experience of the past with that
company is. no incentive to further ar
rangements of. an exclusive character,
and the scheme now . is to form a mer
chants' protective' union and handle
freight matters as a unit with an v car
rier. It is a good scheme and should
be attended to at once. Astoria Talk.
