Every American citizen can only feel
proud of his country when he realizes the
flct that the greatest aid is given to all sci

The members of the grand lodge, K. of

the resident Knights. J. bey succeeded in
iying visitors a chivalnc welcome to their

feelings toward Astoria and Astorians.
Rev. William Morrison, who married two
couples before 10,000 people at the Portland
exposition last Wednescay evening, has sent
the association a bill for $30. "You may
think my bill extravagant" be wrote, "but
you cannot expect a minister of God to
make a holy show of himself for nothing."
Astorian: The railway track through the
swamp near Skipanon is about half laid.
The tracklayers are out of rails this morn
ing. The intention is to lay the rails the
entire distance to the ocevn this season, but
delay in delivering the material retards the
work. More rails are expected on a barge
or something to-day or to-morrow.
Astorian: Last Sunday afternoon while
Otto, the eldest son of J. R. Hall, was rid
ing a horse in Ilwaco, it suddenly reared np
and threw the young man over its head. He
was pipked np in an insensible condition,
and iound to have suffered a severe concus

The human form divine has been the
study of artists through all ages; but when
a person attempts to improve the contour of

the benefit of all. For furtbrr particulars

whom he sold the modern aODliiuces. .
it jo uot generally Known that "Dick"
.Nolan is a "mighty hunter." But ysster
day, with his own little guc, he hunted the
feastive duck and goose, and returned from
the sloughs near the river laden with three
specimens of the latter species. They were
dead and "Dick" killed them. It is diffi
cult to determine from his version of the
encounter whether there were only two
geese, of which he killed three, firing only
one shot, or three geese of which he killed
two, firing tiye shots.
The negro Gibbs, who shot the McDav
itts, it has been definitely ascertained was
en route to The Dalles until warned that the
officei s at this point were on the lookout
for him, when he turned back. It is be
lieved this murderous villain has confeder
ate in members of bis race in different
towns, and that the colored employes on
the Pullman cars are rendering him aid in
every possible way. It is believed he is
hiding somewhere in the woods between
this city and the Cascades.
Democrat: From a privatej letter received
in this city yesterday from a party in Hunt
ington we learn that on Friday, October 4,
about noon, between PocateUo and Mont
pelier, an extra baggage car on the O. S. L.
caught fire and was totally destroyed with
its contents. There were about 50 pieces of
baggage on the car. A good many of the
losers by the fire stopped off at Huntington
and all losses were promptly settled by the
superintendent at that place. The sum of
$4800 was paid out by the railroad com
pany to the losers.
Oregon's fame as an apple growing region
is spreading far and wide. Saturday, says
the Salem Statesman, a gentleman here re
ceived orders from Colorado Springs, Col
orado, for a car load of Oregon apples. The
Colorado man offered such prices that the
shipper can afford to pay $1 per bushel for
apples delivered on the cars in bulk. This
certainly offers much to producers here, for
by a little care the orchards will yield
abundantly each year. Apple growing has
been neglected to a great degree and no
effort has been made to kill the insects.
But a change is not far ahead and hereafter
Oregon orchads will be given the attention
The jetties at the the mouth of the Col
ombia, which we visited last Wednesday,
accompanied by Dr. Tuttle and Mr. Griffin,
of Astoria, Messrs. Hockstetter of Albany,
Borg of Portlahd, C L. Phillips of this city
and a gentleman of Heppner, were found
to be progressing equal to expection. These
consist of piles driven out on the ocean for
distance of two and a half miles. On
these a narrow gauge railroad runs for the
purpose of transporting ties and other ma
terial, and visitors are accommodated who
desire to examine the work. The spaces
between the piles will be filled with rock
and brush, and these, with the drifting
sand, will form a solid embankment. The
j :tty as far as completed, has definitely
fixed the channel of the river, and changed
the current to the center of the stream.
Major Haudbury, as at the Locks, is doing

Eugene EenUter: A couple of weeks ago
we mentioned in these col urns that a de

looking lor a tlieif who had stolen Dr.
Giesy's horse and buggy from Portland.
He succeeded in capturing him last week
at Kecltling, California, haying followed
him to that place. On his way through
the country the thiet also stole a horse
from Mr. liawlcy, who resides near Cres-
well, and that, too, was recovered.
Teller: Win. Caldwell received news
this week from his stock ranch which is
about 25 miles south of here on Snake
river, that upwards of 130 of his finest
horses were missing and could not be
fouud and are supposed to have been
stolen and driven out of the country. He
has ottered a reward of 750 for the re
covery of the horses and thieves. Stock
men both here and on Salmon aud Snake
rivers should use every possible means to
ascertain who the guilty parties are
and bring them to justice.
From a gentleman who arrived from

sheriff's office and searched, but nothing
was found to furnish evidence that he
committed the deed, so he wa3 released

Eugene Begisxer: The following account
of the drowning accident in the Siuslaw
river is furnished us by special corre
spondence: A sad accident occurred
about a mile above Acme at daylight last
Wednesday morning resulting in the
drowning of Alfred Liodgrecn, a native
of Norway and about 25 years of age.
Liindgreen and jfout. cooper were in a
fish boat sailing up river and Liudgrccn,
who was sitting on a pile of netting in the
stern of the boat steering, was struck on
the head by theboom as the sail jibbed
over to the other side and knocked over
board, He came to the surface but once
saying to his partner "I am going down,"
and before Cooper could rescue the
drowning man he sank out of sight. Mr.
Liindgreen was married about two months
ago to Miss Laura Young and they have
since been residing at Acme. The young
widow is almost prostrate with grief over
the untimely loss of her husband. Mr.
Lindgrccn has relatives at Astoria. The
body has not yet been recovered.

There is no more historical spot in Ore
gon than Astoria. Named after Astor,
who, in 1810, established a trading station
at this point, and brought into prominence
by Washington Irying's celebrated work,
"Astoria." it has been known to the read
ing public for many decades. When the
Columbia river became known as the great
commercial highway of the west, this boint
at the mouth of the stream was considered
cf the utmost Hmpcrtance. It was the
natural seaport of the new empire, and as
such attracted the attention of the Hudson
Bay and other commercial companies which
were battling for the trade of this portion
of the country. It is many years ago since
we landed at its wharf on an ocean steamer,
and first beheld Oregon, with all its prom
ises of agricultural and mineral wealth.
Situated as it is at the mouth of the great
river, with anchorage for the fleets of
empire, we were assured of its future great
ness, and haye seen no occasion to change
this opinion. With the shipping of the
Columbia river under the control of Port
land capitalists, and no connection with the
interior except by means of the Columbia
riyer it is not at all surprising that Astoria
has not developed her resources or displayed
enterprise commensurate with her advan
tages. But a new era has dawned for this,
the seaport of Oregon, and we firmly believe
that in the next decade more advancement
will be made than iu all the years since the
establishment of the place. Tho great fac
tor of growth, the railroad, has been called
into requisition, and already real estate has
advanced, and new life appears to be infused
into the community. The terminus of the
proposed road will be near Albany, and this
will connect the rich Willamette valley
with Astoria. It is not reasonable to be
lieve that, after railroad connection is made
with the interior, producers will send
their grain by any tortuous route to sea'
board when they can chip direct.
Further than this, in many instance, large
sea-going ships are forced to be loaded at
Astoria by means of barges, and this plan
will not be pursued when the iron-horse
brings the producers ot Eastern, Western
and Southern Oregon in close communica
tion witn ocean tramc. it will be only a
few years before this railroad will be com
pitted, and then we expect to see a revolu
tion iu trade centers in Oregon. Astoria
has waited long and patiently for her rights
to be acknowledged, and the time is at hand
when she will rise or fall by her own merits,
There are very many evidences of thrift
and enterprise in Astoria, aud the present
era is one of substantial progress. New
building have been erected in many places,
and three live, daily papers Astorian, Pio
neer and Transcript well supported by the
business men, are infusing life and activity
into all business industries. These are the
criteria by which the growth and prosperity
of any city can bo judged, and when news
papers maintain a sickly existence, the city
is doomed and the handwriting on the wall
can be easily discerned. Another project
that will help Aaioria in her development
is an open river, ar.d she has equal interest
with the inland empire in the construction
of the locks at the Cascades. With ob
structions to navigation in this great river
removed, the wheat output of the inland
empire would seek tide-water at the wharves
cf this city. The citizens understand this,
and are in sympathy with any movement
which The Dalles may undertake to utilize
the river as a channel of commerce. They are
anxious to see all improvements in the riyer
pushed to aa early completion, knowing
that they will eventually solve the freight
problem in their favor.
Astoria is the Venice of the northwest.
It is built in the river on piling, and docks
can be constructed almost around the
city. Travel is not done by vehicles, but
by boats, and these can be seen on the bay
coursing in every direction. One runs to
Ft. Can by, another to the jetty and Ft.
Stevens, still another to Ilwaco and Skipa
non. Astoria needs no roads. The river is
her highway, and this will always be util
ized lor commerce and pleasure. Iu a few
years we expect to see wharves along the
whole shore line of the peninsula, where
any deep-sea going vessel can load or un
load her cargo.
There is no doubt that the future of this
city by the sounding sea is bright, and
her growth and prosperity are almost un
limited. Her salmon exports now reach
about 2,500,000 annually, and a brisk
trade is carried on in lumber to every part
of the coast. The Cutting Co. has a brunch
establishment here, and other industries
may be expected as soon as the commercial
facilities are fully developed. Astoria now
boasts of TOCO population; but this -will
double in the next two or three years, and
the seaport of Oregon will be the second
city in the state.
Kotcs from Abroad .
Stockholm, Oct. 9, 18S9.
In a recent letter from the pen of "Re
porter" he remarks "it is said that Supt.
Reed is trying to force men to board in the
mess house. I do not believe it." There
is no room for doubt. Talk with the work
men here for balf an hour, and you will ob
tain ample proof that my assertions are not
without foundation. It is a well known
fact that our boss laborer has a preference
for Russian Fins, and so forth, because, as
has been written before, tbey being so un
sophisticated are the more easily run in. It
is the current report here that he receives
so much for eyery one, end in face of tho
interest he takes in the matter, we cannot
but belieye that there is more truth than
fiction in the statement. I can produce
proof that he told a certain Swede that he
would have to quit keeping boarders, or he
would be dismissed from the works. He
also approached another, an American, but
not in such a forcible manner. He said. "I
cannot make you board at the mess house,
but it will be better for you if you do so."
Now, I will leave you to draw your own
conclusion as to what was implied by the
latter half of the remark.
The fellow referred to in "Granite's" let
ter as having to send his child home, and
being forced to go into the mess house, has
been making quite a bluster, vowing he
would write to you about it. The story is
true, however, because be told bis trouble
to me at the time, and 1 borrowed money
for him to go home on. The only trouble
is that "Granite" did not giye the story in
all its details. Twice he had his family here
and twice he sent them to the homestead,
keeping the little girl here. The final in
terview came one day. Capt. Young took
him to the further end of the blacksmith
shop, where he plead to keep the child with
him. But the captain replied, he would
rather let him go than break the rules.
Break what rules I would like to know?
Did the U. S. government establish a rule
that workmen employed on the locks must
board at a certain house, run by one S. O.
Hersey? Such a rule never had birth out
side of the Cascade Locks, but was created
by men placed in power by aocideut, the
pubhc charity, or from the fact of their hav

The marriage of Mr. George A. Hamilton
and Miss Jessie C. Washburnn, of Portland,
Or., took place at tho residence of the
bride's parents, near Grass Valley, Oct.
10th, this date being also the twenty-ninth
anniversary ot the parents ot the bride.
About twenty-five persons were invited to
witness the happy event. As the wedding
cards announced that the ceremony would
take place at nine o'clock in the evening the
guests arrived at an early hour. The resi
dence was beautifully illuminated, and the
spacious parlors decorated with artistic
skill. The company - was agreeably enter
tained during the early part of the evening
with recitations, vocal and instrumental
music, when at 9 o'clock the happy conple.
accompaied by parents and Rev, John Run

wedding march. After a short but very im
pressiye ceremony followed by prayer they
were presented as Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton,
Congratulations then followed, after which
the dining loom was opened and a real wed

W. W. Union.
J. M. Hill and W. W. Baker, who re
turned late Wednesday .night from a visit
to the scene of the boiler explosion on Mon
day, state that after an examination of the
circumstances surrounding the accident,
they believe that the cause is destined to
always remain a mystery. After a careful
examination of the torn boiler tbey could
find no evidence of the metal having been
burned. The crown sheet, which was fitted
with a soft metal plug, to prevent accident
should the water run low, was examined
and the plug was found intact. The boiler
and engine are reported to have been a to
tal wreck. Mr. Hill has written to the
brother and sister of Isaac Harding, the
victim of the accident, at Darwin, Minn.,
detailing the manner of bis death. The
body has been brought to the city and
buried, and the coroner is expected here in
a day or two to hold an inquest. A portion
of Harding's head only could be found,
that member having been badly shattered
by the explosion. The men at the mill
regard the accident as almost a stroke of
providence, and relate the following story:
On Suuday, Harding, in conversation,
stated that on several occasions he had con
templated suicide, stating that within the
past five years he had run through $12,000
by driuking and fast living, aud closing
with the remark : "I would be glad if Billy
God were to take me out of the world
where I am of no use to myself or anyone
At the time of the accident the engineer
was standing by the pony pump, which fed
the boiler, while another man was on a lad

A Bloody Bull.
Sunday evening a young man known as
John Calvin Sons, well known in this city,
was severely gored by a bull, on the farm
of Thos. Davidson, about one mile south of
the depot. Sons has only been employ
ed on the farm for the past two weeks.
He was formerly employed at the Chemeketa
hotel, and was a young man who was well
liked. It seems that on yesterday eyening
Mr. Davidson was .unwell and for the first
time sent young Sons out to care for this
furious beast, that has come near causing
the death of three persons. Mr. Davidson
warned him to use precaution aud to not
get in the eame lot witb the "critter," but
feous had not been gone but a short time until
Mr. Davidson's little boy came running in
and told bis father that the beast was after
the hired man. Mr. Davidson went at once
to the poor victim's rescue and soon beat the
man-killing beast off. It was then dis
covered'that Sons had received several very
bad wounds, one in the lower part of the
bowels, one over the shoulder and also two
severe wounds near the base of the spinal
column. Dr. J. N. Smith was immediately
summonsed and dressed the wounds and
this evening the young man is resting easy,
yet is in a bad condition, although the doc
tor does not consider them dangerous.
This same animal has came near killing
three diflerent persons, and this morning an
end was put to his career by taking him out
and killing him. Only about three weeks
ago an accident similar to the above occurred
at the same place.
A Sad Accident.
Last eyening about 6:30 the eight year old
child of G. W. Johnson's met with a dan
gerous and painful accident. The little son
was playing on the floor an.1 a sewing
needle with a small piece of thread attached
was lying on the floor and in moving around
the nedle was thrust into the childs' knen.
Drs. Richardson and Cusick were at once
called and at first no trace of the needle
could be found. The physicians were com
pelled to administer chloroform to the little
fellow and make a deep inclusion to the
bone. The needle was found. It bad en
tered with the head inward and had pene
trated almost to the bone. The little fellow
bore the operation with great fortitude and
is resting quite easy to-day. The operation
was a delecate one as the needle had entered
the knee close to the kneecap and if an in
cusion had' penetrated in the wrong direc
tion the little boy would have beeu crippled
for life. The doctors hope that no serious
consequences will terminate from the acci

Cascade Locks, Oct. 1G, 1S60.
The usual run of affairs are about the
same as ever.
The work on the locks is closing
aown and times are getting dull.
The last letter of V eritas created quite
an excitement here. Ihe bosses on the
government works dislike very much to hear
the truth. By what can be learned one
cannot blame them for covering facts as far
as possible. I think there will.be a "new
deal" here a f ter the next appropriation. If
Uncle Sam cannot send us better bosses
than those they have he better giye up the
job. I do not blame the mess house so
much as many do, as the contractor has to
furnish the officers food free. One thing
is certain, none of the bosses had any pro
visions when they came to this place, and
rumor says Hersey furnishes them gratis for
fayors received, and the laborers pay the
bill. It seems our government should have
some honest men to take charge of their
I want to ask a question, and that is, are
foreigners who are not citizens allowed to
work on government works? Two years ago,
just before the closing down time, they
went around and found out all who were
citizens and discharged them. Now I hear
they are doing the same thing again, while
good American citizens have beeen refused
work and Swedes and Norwegians, who
have not been in the country ten days are
employed. I hose who have families, and
who do not board at the mess bouse, are the
nrst to be discharged. I hear that one man
who boarded at the mess house was dis
charged. But I think this is a mistake, as
1 can get nothing definite about the matter,
Y our correspondent saw a new Norwegian
or Swede being led to the office by a coun
tryman who could speak English, and I
hear he got a job, although twenty or thirty
citizens had been discharged the day before.
It is reported the bosses get $4 or $5 per
month for each Swede or Norwegian thus
employed. If so it is something of an ob
ject. I do not know that this is true, but
eyery one here believes it.
Dr. Candana has not gone to Norway.
Messrs. A. G. Hall and Z. M. Day have
returned from their visit east.
Mr. A. O'Toole is as foxy as ever, and his
good-natured smile would wm favor from
the heart of any maiden.
Old Doc. is still howling.
Agent Clark is now shut off.
J. A. Hamilton's team ran away to-day
and threw him out ot the wagon, but for
tunately he lit on a soft part of his body
and sustained no injury.
Mr. Cooper a horse a few days ago ran
away with his boy, and threw him, result
ing in a broken leg. Dr. Candana reduced
the fracture, and the boy is doing well.

A Reduced 1evy.
Tue Dalles, Oct. 18, 1889.
A good deal of discussion is being carried
on about the results that would flow from
the making of a ten mill levy by the next
county court, instead of one sufficient to
meet all the expenses of tbe county for the
current tax year; and some have an idea
that instead of the proposed measure work
ing a benefit to those it is intended to re
lieve, it would work the other way, be a
benefit to the rich and those who are in no
need, and that finally and in the long run
the full proportion with interest of the in
curred connty indebtedness would fall upon
those who have suffered most from the
drouth of the past season. A very simple
illustration ought, 1 think, to place this
matter in its true light. Suppose the case
of a taxpayer, in the burnt out district,
who, at the time the assessor called on him
last summer, returned an indebtedness of
say $aC0. With nothing whatever to sell
from the proceeds of this year s crop it is
safe to say, that the same person's indebted
ness will be doubled the next time the as
sessor calls on him. And this means less
taxable property and, as a consequence,
smaller taxes. And it is safe to say that
the increased indebtedness consequent on
this year's failure of crops, will wipe from
the assessment roll many small taxpayers
while it reduces the taxable property of
every man who has suffered. Thus, iu the
end, a small levy for this year will benefit
the farmers while they have little or noth
ing with which to pay taxes, and it will
benefit them next year, when they can take
advantage of the law that allows deduction
of indebtedness. As a corollary, it is not
denied that, the measure contemplated
would throw a little of tbe burden on those
who are best able to bear it; bnt if the rich
and well-to-do are seeking channels for pra -
tical benevolence, it seems to me there is an
excellent opportunity afforded them of en
couraging a measure that would cause tbe
whole generation of farmers in blighted
parts of this county to rise up and call them
blessed. Hugh Gou&lay.
A Boat Bailway at The Dalles.
Mr. Hollon Parker, of Walla Walla,
who is in Ihe city, is just in receipt of a
delayed letter from Senator Dolph, which
was to have been read at the recent water
way convention. Speaking ot govern
ment improvement the senator says:
I called yesterday at the office of the
chief of engineers to learn, if possible, if
the report of the commission, appointed
under the provisions of the last river and
harbor bill to examine The Dalles rapids
and report a plan of improvement, hud
been made. 1 learned that the commis
sion had returned from Europe after ex-
aming what is known as the hydraulic
lifts for vessel in France and England,
and that their report would be received in
time for action by congress.
From several conversations 1 have had
with members of the commission, the
chief ot engineers and others, I am con
fident that there will be a strong favorable
report for the improvement, and that the
project recommended wi.l be a boat rail
way. I have strong hopes that with such
a report our delegation, acting in unison,
as we will, will be able to secure a large
appropriation for the commencement of
In regard to other improvements, the
large estimates made in previous years
for the work at the mouth of the Colum
bia and at the Cascades have aided greatly
in securing large appropriations. This
year the estimate for the amount which
can be economically used at the mouth of
the river is not so large as heretofore, ana
1 fear as a consequence that there will be
more difficulty in securing as lrrge ap
propriations. As J have said to you be
fore, the appropriations are based, to a
large extent, upon the recommendations
of the engineers in charge, the first thing
done being to determine about how large
tbe bill will be and then to divide the
amount to be appropriated among the sev
