the view. They sell on sight to people of
refined natures, and Mrs. Derby, who is
the general agent for Oregon and Wash

praises, Tin: Astokian took a (lis-
like.to him, and castiug about us for
a better man we accepted Hon. Ros
coe Conkling, and as consistently as
possible worked to influence his
"ribhii nation. The contest was a bitter
one, almost equal to the fierceness of
strive between straight Democrats
and straight Republicans, after part'
nominees were placed in the field
but now that it is all over with one
brief incident will illustrate a the
situation m Uresron. Blaine mniu
meets Conking man :
11 Well, you didn't get your man
did yon ?"
Answer: "lse: nor did you set
Blaine; did you?"
11 No; but how do you like Hayes?"
'Very well; he will do first rate ;
how do you like Hayes ?"
" Very well ; he will do first rate ;
Summing the contest1 down to a
nice point between Blaine and Conk-lingfhe-situttttofins
by a story that Jim Kavanaugh used
to tell. Jim formerly lived in St.
Paul, Minnesota, went to Montana
and " became identified with Con
gressmen" by holding a commission
as delegate. On one occasion there
were seven men standing on empty
boxes and with ropes around their
necks, under the limb of a tree, just
ready to be hanged. One of them,
a German, began to cry bitterly as he
thought that he was about to die.
Ihe man next to him was an Irish
man, who was much bothered by the
German's weeping. So hitching his
foot to one side, gave the German's
box a push, leaving him swinging in
the air, and said: "Stop, you big
sucker, won't you?" But the same
act toppled over his own box; he
could not regain his footing, and,
with a laugh at the' trick he was play
ing on the German, he, too, swung
into eternity. Exactly so with Blaine
and Conkling. In trying to kill one
another off both were soon swinging
into political eternity bf the toppling
of their empty boxes in the Cincinnati
Convention. As an individual we
are satisfied with the result, as a
party no doubt the Republicans of
the country are better pleased as they
will be more strongly united, and can
make an aggressive campaign of it,
instead of being on the defensive, with
men like Blaine.
Opposition to a good cause is cer
tain to define the character of the op
poser. The avaricious man sees it as a
money making scheme. The sensual
ist searches for, and in his imagination
finds lasciviousness to lay to tke charge
of whatever he opposes. What a man
has been searching for may be known
by what he professes to have found.
To know the general tenor of a man's
character, observe the form taken by
his opposition. This is true, because
men learn to regard their fellows with
the distrust the are conscious of de
serving. The Daily and Weekly Astorian

Ve are in receipt of a private
letter from Sydney, Australia, May
Gth, a house that deal largely in Co
lumbia river salmon. The letter is
one of thanks for information fur
nished respecting business of the
Columbia river and contains sugges
tions relative to shipments, etc., valu
able to factors. Shipments by direct
vessels is strongly urged. The price
at the above date was 85 9s to 9s 3d
per dozen, according to brand, duty
paid Is dozen. Barrel salmon was
in good demand, with a firm market,
0 3 7s Gd per bbl duty Id per lb
paid. The right proposition of ship
ments would be about three half bar
rels of 100 lbs each to one barrel of
200 lbs. The house to which we re
fer are very largely interested in
various English lines of vessels, in
cluding the "Geo.' Smith &. Soil's city
line of Glasgow, so many of which
visited this port last year, besides
being large owners themselves, and
when opportunities are presented
will influence business in this direc
tion. The newspapers of the valley
are beginning to growl like fury be
cause the late combination in steam
boatings have put up a big job on the
producers.. We deeply sympathize
with the farmer, but it would be a
very fine point to discriminate which
party sinches the farmers most, the
middle-man and speculators in food
stuffs, or the transportation compan
ies. The farmer can get along verr
well, if he tries, without one of them.
Speaking of the late rise in
freights on the Wallamet river the Sa
lem Farmer says: "It puts to blush
the genius of Ben Holladay. " Old
Ben wasn't so very bad, after all; was
he Sam? The Farmer confesses that
it did not expect, so soon, to see any
contingency arise that would make the
memory of Ben Holladay smell sweet
to the people of Oregon.
The Hwaco Steam Navigation
Company's steamer Varuna has been
chartered by the Fisherton and Glen
Ella factories to tow the fishing boats
belonging there from this bay, on
mornings when they are too heavily
loaded to sail up, or are otherwise
prevented from going homeward.
The Oregon City Enterprise con
gratulates the school district of that
city on securing the services or Prof.
"W. L. "Wbrthington as principal. We
can assure our friends at Oregon City
that Prof. W. is a first class teacher,
and their gain is Astoria's loss.
The insane man picked up on
Smiths Point in a starving condition,
recruited and sent to the Asylum
from whence he escaped, it was sup
posed, had not been there before.

come from, and vf ho, is he.? '
Another Relic Gone.
From tho Oregon City Enterprise
Por a few da3rs past we have ob
served the old three-story building
near the city Seminary was being
dismantled and torn down. Upon
inquiry we learn that this building,
known as the Oregon City College,
was erected in 1850 or '51. A char
ter was obtained for it as the Oregon
City College through the efforts of
elders Hezekiah Johnson and Ezra
Fisher, the first Baptist missionaries
sent to Oregon, with the idea of hav
ing the school for Oregon Baptists at
this place. During the mining ex
citement several thousand dollars
were raised for this purpose, these
ministers giving about all they were
worth, and this building was erected.
Dr. Chandler who now lies paralized
at Forest Grove, was sent out to take
charge of this school, after it had been
temporarily conducted by Elder
Fisher. Some books were sent out
from the East, with a small philo
sophical apparatus, and the school
was started with fine prospects, con
sidering the distance from ciailiza
tion and the condition of this now
prosperous State at that time. The
school was afterward in charge of"
Prof. J. D. Post for a few years, but
no endowment being prvided, tho
efforts to keep up the school abated.
Prof. C. H. Mattoon taught a while,
and perhaps one or two others, bu t
the building finally fell into disuse
for school purposes. It was then
rented for a number of years as a
dwelling, but no repairs being mat' e
it became unfit for this. After that
it became a resort for idle bovs who
played " hooky" from school, or
went there on Sundays to have a sly
game 01 cards awav irom tne om
folks. To prevent this misuse of tne
building, W. C. Johnson, Esq., of the
Board of Trustees, sold the remains
for a small sum, and provided for
having it torn down. In the early
days a number of boys and girls, who
now are strong men and women in
this community, secured a portion
of their education in this buildi ng,
and the influences set to work there
have not seen their end, though the
building is torn down and destroyed.
Fisher and Johnson are in their
graves, and Chandler's working days
are past, but the impulse they ga ve to
education in Oregon will not cease
with their lives, and we woul d be
glad if their desire to have a Co'ilege
here might vet be realized.

that our sister city has "good citizen"

who is acting in ihe capacity of fire
bus. It was heralded all over the Uni
ted States, a few weeks ago, that Dr.
Mudd, who gained such unenviable
notoriety in, and was sent to the Dry
Tortugas, for supposed coi nplicity in
the assassination of President Liincoln,
has been elected to the: Maryland
legislature. It was a case of mistaken
identity. The man elected was named
Geo. D. Mudd, and has always been
known as an ardent Union man.

Macken read a prayer, and a large
concourse of citizens joined in proces

Thompson. The funeral will take
place in Portland to-morrow.
Ten hardy pioneers in the settle
ment of N ehaleni valley, tired of the
dilatory action of the authorities, and
dispairing of all outside assistance, five
veeks ago took off their coats and went
to work to open a road to the valley.
From the end. o the State road grade
they have worked, 011 towards their
koines, and it is- said, have accomplish
ed more in five weeks- than was ac
complished wiili. the entire State ap
propriation o 20,000 made in 1872.
God speed them, hi, the work. Eack
man of this working party contributed
$14 for provisions, and the good women
of the valley helped them aleng: by
contributions from the dairy, until
there is a kope in tliek breasts of ulti
mate and complete success.

fastened with the usual cords and cop-
