"We do not consider whisky drink
ing a crime. If it was, licenses to
retail liquors would not be granted.
Drunkenness is not a vice it is a
disease, just so assuredly as consump
tion is A disease. Sb man should
ever be fined and imprisoned, accord
ing to our turn ium, for drinking, so
long as licenses are granted 'for the
sale of liquors. The case of a poor
demented, and drunken woman in
Portland, and that of S. P. Haslett,
are cited to prove that there are ways
of obtaining-drink which are bej'ond
the dep;hs of humanitarians to fath
om but we venture to sa- that for a
town of this size, where so much
liquor is daily consumed there cannot
be found so few drunken persons, nor
a corresponding number of saloon
keepers who will not sell liquors to
confirmed inebriates, if they know it.
Men who would do so should have
their licenses revoked.

At a meeting of Astoria Lodge

We were in error in stating" that
the officers elect of Astoria Lodge of
Good Templars were installed last
Saturday evening. Officers were
elected Saturday evening, and we
are reliably informed will be pub
licty installed next Saturday even
ing the ceremony to take place at
the Congregational church.
The installation will take place
at Spiritual Hall, Saturday evening,
We believe the last statement to
be correct. If it is not; will proper
information be furnished, under seal
of the lodge?
AVe propose to get this matter up
correctly; if it takes-us all summer
or somewhere near it.
Australian Travel and Trade.
A veteran among the wharves esti
mates the number of first class passen
gers yearly traveling from Australia to
England at between sixty andseventy
thousand. The Trans-Pacific route is
a favorite with the Australians for
many reasons, chief of which is, per
haps, that more of the world can be
seen for about the same money by
crossing the American continent rather
than by making the long ocean voyage.
Their experience hitherto has been
somewhat calculated to dampen the
ardor of the Australians in coming ri
San Francisco, however, as parties of
them have been made the victims of
breaches of trust, which, to say the
least, seriously discommoded them.
Eveiy one remembers a that upon one
occasion, at least, a party of Austra
lians, who had through tickets to
England, found them invalid upon
their arrival in San Francisco, and
were obliged to pay an extra fare to get
across the continent. Such instances
"are apt to give bad odor. Put ihe tide
of travel has once more set in. and

bound for a good market, so that it is
really of more advantage to California
than to the Australians to lend a help
ing hand to the project. The inter
course between the two countries has
hitherto been so spasmodic and uncer
tain that it is positively a relief to feel
that the present State of aflau's is per
manent. It is unfortunate that the
Pacific Mail Company should be labor
ing under such a cloud at this stage,
just when the line has got under pros
perous, headway ; but this will prob
ably be the helping hand to start it
once more on its old-time career of
success. The Alta thinks that it is a
reproach to the American people that
it has been appreciated only abroad, as
the subsidy which enables it to keep this
Australian line in operation comes
wholly Jfrom the Australians them
selves. Yet the establishment i ill have
the tendency to make of San Francisco
a great commercial centre ; therefore,
for the g)od it may do San Francisco,
if for nothing better, we should wish
that the course of the Pacific Mail
Company will soon be all fair sailing.

The Pritish government has in
formed thfc American legation that it
will release "Winslow to-morrow,
Wednesday, and that two other pris
oners, Gray, of Xew York, and Brent,
of Louisville, whose extradition is
also claimed, will be released when
their terms have expired. Although
this notification has been given, the
government has not' formally replied
to America's argument, owing to the
absence of Loid Derby, caused by
the recent death of his mother.
In addition to the arguments al
ready made public touching the .in
terpretation .of the act of 1S70.
America has adduced a precedent.,
occurring in 2S71, wherein Chief Jus
tice Cock burn ordered n surrender
to Prance under similar circumstan
ces, upon tho opinion of the French
consul that the prisoner would only
be tried for the offense' for which he
was extradited, the Chief Justice re
marking that without the consul's
assurance, he should have decided
against the prisoners.
The Salem Woofen Mills were
totally destroyed by fire on Wednes
day morning at 10 o'clock. . It is
thought the fire originated from
spontaneous combustion. The loss is
estimated at about 8122,000, includ
ing stock and fixtures, on which
there was about SGI, 000 insurance,
divided among a number of Eastern
companies, none of which were will
ing to insure to any great amount,
owing to the risk, the buildings being
of wooden structure. One hundred
operatives are thrown out of employ-,
ment in consequence of this loss.
In reply to Admiral Rodgers re
quest to be allowed to release Pay
master Spalding from confinement,
Secretary Pobeson has directed Ad
miral Pogers to use his discretion in
the matter. AdmirarPodgers' there
fore informed Spalding that be was
at liberty to go at all times from his
residence until the conclusion of tho
trial, being understood he would re
port at every meeting of the court.
A Jladrid dispatch of the 3d says:
In Congress to-day, the debate on the
new constitution was continued.
Alvarez opposed the tolerance clause
and declared the monarch was lost if
the religious unit was not maintained.
Corbello in reply, pointed out that
Spain possessed colonies in America,
Africa and Asia, and. had relations
with the whole world. It would be
impossible for her to keep these colo
nies and maintain their relations, if
the government adopted the irrecon
cilable ultramontane attitude.
