A visitor along the wharves yes
terday, who was curious tf' lind out
what that new building 7o by 100
feet in size was intended for was told
by the builder, Capt. kludge, that it
was designed to inclose Capt. Flavel's
coal-heap. A comparison of the
grassy covered coal heap, (about 300
tons all told), with the larger propor
tions of the building was enough to
excite the admiration of the stranger,
who endorsed Capt. M. as one of the
easiest jokers he had met with for
many a long day. His joke of the
wind mill pump, pumping the river
dry below the suction-pipe, a fact in
the eyes of an interior man who
knew nothing of the rise and fall of
tides, will do to go with this one.
The public school exhibiton, giv
en at Spiritual hall last evening, was a
decided success in every particular.
The pupils all, singly and colect
ively, acquitted themselves in a very
creditable manner. The programme
was large and varied, consisting of
music, vocal and instrumental; recita
tions, dialogues, etc. etc. To partic
ularize where each, one acted his or
lier part so acceptably would seem in
vidious, and for want of space and
time to give each pupil the prox)er
share of credit due, must close
with the simple remark "well done."
The large hall was densely crowded
showing an appreciation on the part
of the public, at once gratifying to
the school, to the 'parents of pupils,
and. particularly so to the teachers.

A Card from Mr. W. W. Parker.
Astoria, June 3d 1S76.
To the readers of the Daily Asterian:
In a few words I wish to review the
little squable between myself and the
Grays, who I am aware are supposed
to be pushed on by other and more in
In my communication of the 29th
and 31st of May I pronounced every
one of the insinuations wliicli lie calls
"nuts" to be false, wholly so. I also
I pronounced as wholly false all the in
sinuations and charges contained ii
jis luu -y g;. Gray's subsequen
cards or communications. x now
again pronounce them all, all the
charges and insinuations mentioned
or referred to above, to be wholly
false as far as they have any applica
tion to me. And in regard to any
new matter coutamediii Gray's card of
the 2d inst. , 1 pronounce that wholly
false when charged against me; and I
now, as I have done before, chal
lenge Gray or any one else, to prove
any single one, or more, if liis charges
I am aware that most of his state
ments are simply insinuations,
chaitrinir anvthinir pesitively: but
whatever they are, I clndlenge liim to
On the other hand, how has he got
out of the charge of cheating "W. H.
Smith out of a $35 subscription on
the road from Ft. Clatsop to Clatsoj)
Plains, wliicli would open a new
steamboat route for him? He confesses
to having promised Mi's. JobHoss 828
dollars for supper for a party which
they all received and ate, and then he
refused to pay her more than $4, leav
ing her out 24, fr more than three
fourths of the contracted price.
I have been told of more than
twenty instances of Gray's quibling,
prevaricating and backing out of con
tracts and agreements with the officers
and men on iiis steamer the xst five
or six years, and refusing to pay them
after they had jicrform'cd their -pari of
the contract. But what is the use of
publishing tilings so notorious as arc
his acts in such matters.
He feels rather sore because I did not
go to Tillamook in his steamer, so that
he could charge the whoie expense to
my account. I had no use for the
steamer, or the ride, for I could send
all I wanted to by messenger overland.
I compelled him to adojt my course,
and send an overland messenger, which
he did next day after .he got home
from Tillamook. He accuses me of
being stingy because I did not charter
his boat to Tillamook ; and the other
evening, in a public meeting, after
having invited me to ride in his boat
four miles on my way home from one of
his meetings, when I could just as well
have sailed in my own boat, he ac
cuses ine of not having paid for such
four miles ride, to the utter disgust,
chagrin and shame for him, or his com
panions, Mendleson and others, who
heard him invite inc. "Why does he
not ask me to pay for the " sandwich"
wlricli after pressing invitations I
accex)ted from his company's lunch
basket upon that occasion ! What is
the use of noticing such a man. One
more item and I am done with him.
A gentleman of worth and probity
from Portland well known to Mr.
Chance, our city P. 1M., stated in town
yesterday, that J. H. D. Gray is em
ployed by some wealthy men in Port
land to do his utmost to defeat "W.
W. Parker, whom they think if elected
will be in the way of the accomplish
ment of some of their schemes, in
which they expect to ask the assistance
of the ensuing Legislature.
The above statement are facts, Mr.
Chance is well acquainted with the
man who made the statement, and
knows him to be a man of veracity.
Of course the people of Astoria and
Clatop county have an interest in those

A Trip to Tillamook Bay.
Astoria, Oregon, June 2, lS7t.
The excursion to Tillamook bay from
Astoria, May 31t, left hern on board the
steamer General Canbv at 9 o'clock a. m.,
and arrived in the bay at 4 o'clock p. :m.
every one pleased and happy. Crossed
Tillamook bar at about half tide, finding
from two- and a halt' to three fathom of
water. Anchored at the highest point in
tho bay ever reached by steamer, and by
small "boat proceeded to Hoquarton, the
county seat of Tillamook county, a beauti
ful little inland village, about ten miles
from the bay. "We received a warm re
ception from the people, and at S.30 p. jr.
all met together at the town hall ti discuss
political ines. Capt. J. II. D. Gray the
Independent candidate for Joint Repre
sentative, and Mr. "Wilson of Tillamook.
Democratic candidate, were present and
addressed the meeting. Capt. Gray spoke
at con-iderable length on corruption, and
fraud ii rings, and was well applauded.
Mr. "Wilson followed him on the bull and
ram stories, and as he is in the ram busi
ness I think he got a little the beat of it.
He acquitted himself well, and made some
wry fair promises. A Parker man was
called for, but as he was absent (taking a
little Independent whisky), and could hot
be found for some time, did not receive
much encouiagement, as his. remarks were
not well entet tamed.
"We left the bay the next morning, June
1st, at 5.-J0 a. m., accompanied by thirty
or forty friends to the steamer, to bid us
good by, and p!ede themselves independ
ent voters. "We left the bay at 10.25 A. M.
and. arrived at Astoria at 4.45 p. m. all
favorably impressed w.th the commercial
advantages, and agricultural rosources of
Tillamook county. The party consisted
of seveiai pryminent citizens of Astoria,
among whom were, Messrs. H. D. Hume,
Dean Blanchard, Col. John Adair Jr., Pi.
Mendelson, arl others. Capt. Gray was
looking out for the future interests of tho
people in that direction and will enter the
trade there this year to a limited extent;
but will greatly extend it another vear.
