Exciianuing Signals. It appears
that on the morning of September 5th,
the German bark Almy from Hamburg
for San Francisco, was off false Tilla
mook Head, where she exchanged sig
nals with the steamship Geo. W. Elder.
The Elder reported her bound for Asto
ria, but the master of the Almy knew
better, and putting about, followed the
Elder and ran into San Francisco with
the steamer, on the same day, arriving
there on the 7th, 156 days from Ham
burg. If there are. tricks in all trades,
this must be a trick of the sea.

A CointECT Conclusion. Here is a
warning for men too mean to advertise:
One of this description wanted o sell
some land, and so he put a written
notice in one of the hotels the other day.
A man who was inquiring for a small
farm was referred to the written notice,
when lie replied: "I can't buy land at a
fair price of any man who does his ad
vertising in this way. JleM steal the
fence, the pump-handle and the barn
doors before hel give up posession.''
JIUCKILTEO affairs. Uur man
about town got on board the Zephyr yes
terday, says the Seattle Intelligencer
and in company with jolly Capt. Wright
and the affable Barlow, three hours pas
sed oft very pleasantly till he landed at
Muckilteo. Here he found the cannery
closed down for the day. but Mr. Myers
said, '"wait till to-night and you will see
some boats come in withsome fish worth
having.' So he strolled about the beach
for an hour and went up on the hill to
look over the broad and glassy Sound
dotted with trolling canoes in every di
rection. About four o'clock in the
afternoon, the canoes began to flock
towards the cannery. One canoehad -M,
another 48. a third had 52 and a fourth
4(5, all caught by trolling. But at last
came in a large whaling canoe with six
Indians fromTort Madison, where they
had been hauling a seine. This boat
had 408 fine large salmon, all "silver
sides,' making altogether a total of 3U7
for the day.
The Can Can and the Jubilee
Singers. We are sorry to see two res
pectable citizens like the Advocate and
the Bee, step aside to throw mud at each
other because of strangers such as the
Can Can and the Tennessee Jubilee
Sinners. It seems that the Bee is favor
all to the Can Can, and from one of the
"gobs" which it flung at the Advocate
came words like these : "In the first place
the Turners did not know the nature ot
the performance until after they had let
I the hall under written contract, and. in
the second place, the letting of a public
Imll fnr i vrtii nn' rMrfnnnniiPP fwliiph
1 more than one leading church member
( attended) is not more inappropriate than
having a lot of minstrels sing sacnhgi
ous songs in the very pulpit altar of
the costliest church in the city." This
whole difficulty has arisen from a weak
ness in human nature, "the love of the
glittering generalities'' and it may be "a
dollar or so," which sometimes take the
place of common sense in secular as
well as in other places, and admits the
"strangest kind' of strangers taking in
and doing the most sensible metropoli
tan writers. Perhaps if our brother of
the Advocate had known the nature of
the JiibiUe Singers as well before, as
after the performance in "the costliest
church in the eitv,' they would not have
been allowed to do so. But the Bee
ought to be ashamed Of itself for making
any such comparisons.

The London correspondent of the
Liverpool daily Post states thac the
homceopathists have discovered a cer

apomorpha. A very small dose of
it taken once an hour in water will
remove the qualms. They are so cer

to procure a gratuitous circulation of
it among vessels that carry passengers.
It is also useful for beasts whose suf

then summoned. Oxidized zinc,
which is found in numberless houses,
should therefore be handled as care
fully as Woorara arrows or poisoned

the rotunda of the national capitol at
"Washington, but one of the high art
critics who occasionally find their way
into our state legislature thought he
discovered a defect in the work of the
artist and objected to the state paying
for it. It was paid for, however,
when delivered, and remains just
where it was dumped.

when he gets a few dollars ahead,

cently from San Francisco sa-s that
the stock market in that city is over

a little rise in prices leaves them a
small margin of profit, dump their

The aggregate of stocks thus offered is
large, and in the present sensitive
state of the stock market the stocks
thus thrown upon it break it like the
last feather broke the back of the fa

the gentleman attributes the sudden

Hale's Piano Factory
Referring to the terrible and fatal
fire at Hale's friano factory, New York,
recently the Sun says: "Whether the
value of the property destroyed bj-
the burning was a million dollars, or
more or less, is a matter of small ac
count; but the loss of life is deplora
ble, and the circumstances under
which that loss occurred were such as
to establish the certainty of guilty
ncgligence in some quarter. The
huge piano factory, eight stones high,
in which the distressing scenes took
place, and in which hundreds of work
men were employed, was a mere shell,
a mere rickerty sham of a building,
put up in such a way as to imite sud
den destruction by lire, or by a squall;
it might, indeed, have been expected
to tumble to the ground at any time
tlirongh its own weakness. A similar
building, owned by the same proprie
tor, and standing on the same spot,
actually tumbled some years ago, kill
ing eight people; and the poor bricks
gathered up in that wreck, bricks
which had been run up with mud in
stead of mortar between them, were
again used in the construction of the
concern which is now destroyed. This
concern, moreover, was everywhere
full of the most combustible material,
dry lumber, shavings, varnish, pianos,
and so forth. "What might have been
expected In a few moments the
small blaze burst into a blinding, roar
ing, uncontrollable sea of flame, sweep
ing in all directions, before wluch the
building appeared to melt away, and
from which many of the panic struck
workmen were unable to escape. Such
a building shobl 1 never have been al
lowed to be put up, or to stand, or to
be used as a factory, or in any other
way. There are scores and hundreds
of other sham buildings in ether cities
that perpetually threaten the lives of
those who occupy them.
Local and Domestic.
The Seattle Intelligencer is in
formed that an expedition is about tu
explore the streams flowing from
Mount Rainier. It has very often
been thought that gold could be
found on the headwaters of the Puy
allup or some of its tributaries, but no
explorations haye as yet been made.
We shall look with some anxiety for
the result of their researches'. It has
always been our idea that this coun
try has never been half prospected and
that when experienced miners give the
Olympic range a good overhauling,
they will find good recompense for
their toil. That argentiferous galena
exists in the Cascade mountains, is
already beyond dispute.
H. L. Sutton of Port Townsend
has been found guilty of murder in the
first degree. He has been taking
some desperate chances to escape from
jail but is still secure. Whisky and
politics have brought him to ruin.
