No Terodo at Astoria-
Hon. H. Holbrook, the mayor of
Xew Westminster, who has been so
journing at the Occident for a week
past, and visiting places of interst in
this vicinity,sailed for San Francisco by
the Elder. We have enjoyed his visit
very much, and he informs us that he
has been delighted. He wilJ return
to his home with renewed interest in
Astoria. He feels that the fact that
that pest of sea-ports generally, the
teredo, does not atfect our dock-pilings,
etc., is of itself enough to invite the
investment of millions at Astoria, ttnfi
he thinks that our Chamber of Com
merce should take special pnins to
impress this great fact upon the minds
of all men pursuing -commercial vo
cations. Mr. J. G. Megler arrived down
yesterday y the Elder, and intended
to remain over for the up river boat
to-day, "but in consequence of illness
of Mrs. Megler his steamer Edith was
dispatched from Brook field for him,
and he 'returned home last evening.
The Standard says, Hon. I. W.
Case, Grand Master Workman of the
Ancient Order United Workingmen,
has appointed W. S. White, Esq.. of
East Portland, a Deputy Grand
Master Workman, with full power to
institute Lodges throughout the entire
district. Mr. White is a worker, and
will do much toward building up the
Order in this state.
The Standard says: "Dr. Win.
Pfunder proprietor of the Oregon
Blood purifier has just received letters
patent on his compound and trade
mark. Owing to the rapid increase
ot demand for this mixture his pre
sent labratory will be doubled in size
in a few weeks. The demand is so
great that better and increased facili
ties are imperative."
The effects of the supreme court
decision in the case of Welch v. Tay

Calvin B. McDonald, "thetripple
thunderer,5' has entered the temper
ance field, and is said to be doing ef
fective service. We know of none
better qualified to speak of the evil
effects of intemperance. Jim .Rey
nolds, when editing a Boise paper
some years ago, said to his readers "for
the evils of intemperance see our
inside;" Calvin can produce the
evidences on his outside unmistakably.
A band of hias cullns Indians from
east of the Cascade mountains, are on
the Elder. They have been sum
moned to Washington to have a ica
oa with 'his "accidency." and their
success will develop a new batch
of "Chiefs" to go on a similar
mission perhaps. If a -gang of white
desperadoes were to act as these fel
lows have acted, sit back as 'fiend
ly" red men and set their dogs upon
defenseless settlers, they would pay
the penalty by having their necks
Quite a sensation occurred in
Bergman & Berry's -stable, night be
fore last. In a stall daext to that of
the little mule a .cow is kept. By
some means the mule was placed in
the cow stall, and vice versa. The
man who does the milking unsuspect
ingly tackled the mule, as it was
i nearly dark and the mule is about the
size of the cow. He was saved by the
milk-pail, though he was slightly in
jured by a sudden exite through the
roof. Berry says the d mule has
not got through kicking yet.
Prof. L. J. Powell, superintend
ent of public instruction, in reply to"i
several letters, has stated that accord
ing to a decision of the Supreme .court,
indebtedness may be deducted from
assessments for school purooEes. or
. & j
that taxable property within the mean
ing of the statue which authorizes the
levy of taxes by school districts, is that
property, which persons within the
district own, exclusive of indebtedness
within the state, and that clerks of
school districts, in making assess
ments, must follow the generjfl law
A. False "Witness.
Certain parties in California who
started the rumor that a certain cannery
on the Columbia river was so badly rup
tured by a direct shipment of fisli to
Europe last year, will be chagrined to
hear that the rupture is only a smill
pimple. Why California cannery
men should circulate such rpports is a
mystery to us. They come here; they
make money here; they. splurge on
their "ill-gotten gams;" for' if it is
such an outrageous business they are
equally as guilty as the Web-feet,
whom they so despise. If they do hot
like Oregon, if they believe Orego
nians to be flats all together, we ad
vise them, as sharps, to keep in tune
and confine themselves to apples, and
peaches, and strawberries, in the
An Unexpected Reception.
There is a sparkle of humor
about some of the Mormon girls.
An old reprobate of the sect ad
dressed a note to a young woman
who does housework, asking her
to become his second wife, as his
first was growing old, and had
ceased to be to him an object of
admiration. The woman answered
his note, "informing him that she
had a young lady friend in the
kitehen, who would entertain his
proposition with more favor, and
fixing a time when he should -call,
to prefer his suit in person. He
arrived at the appointed time. The
two girls dressed a young man up
in woman's clothes to receive him.
During the interview the old fel
low became suspicious that he had
been "sold," on hearing a suppres
sed titter. He proceeded to make
a retreat, when this is what hap
pened, as described by the Salt
He proceeded slowly towards the
door; but just then a pan of hot water
fell over his bare head, and before he
could realize the situation, a bucket
of slops was soused into his face; turn
ing in the direction from whence came
the last dose, he received a rotten egg
in the left ear. He now turned to
run, but was met at the door by a pan
of molasses and flour which settled
over his face and neck, trickling down
his back in dirty pale streaks that ate
a passage through his endowment
robes and ran around this toe-nails. At
hist he got the slops and molasses and
ancient eggs and the -bu&cwh'eat batter

Our Nasby (Postmaster Chance),
interviewed Moses and the chiefs on
the Elder yesterday. Old Winap
snoot and Xaeby were "familiar
lfriends" years long gone by, and the
old chief remembered the incidents of
those early days with pleasure.
The card of the Eorton House,
Portland, will be seen in another col

in Portland. We acknowledge a very
pleasant call from Mr. Thos. P. Korton
yesterday. He came down by the
Elder, and will return by the Ancon.
It is something astonishing what
great results follow little causes. An
item a few days age predicting that
Mr. C. SL Wright would himself oc
cupy (not alone), the new residence he
was preparing to iuild, calls forth the
fact that the house is already engaged,
and so is Capt. A. W. Berry, it is pre
sumed that the ihoiise is for him. The

Referring to the remarkable
journey -of Hon. John Whiteaker to
Washington, the Seattle Independent,
(Hon. Beriali Brown,) says: "Mr.
Whiteaker emigrated from Missouri
across the plains more than a quarter of
a-century ago, and never saw a railroad
or .an ocean steamer outside of Oregon
before this trip. He is a man of indomi
table energy, and nothing which
could be overcome by human efforts
would deter him "from meeting a per
sonal obligation or performing a public
duty. If his party had been defeat
ed in the organization of thebouse by
i his neglect he would have regarded
himself as deeply dishonored."

Olympia Daily Experiment.
The ice srore in the Columbia
during the past winter has demon
strates a fact fraught with a crave
considerations. Portland may con
sider herself the entrepot of this
part of the coast; butthinking and
wishing, though bolstered with
buoyant hope, often ends in bitter
disappointment. Heavy shippers
are not going to allow their freight
to be diverted twelve miles from
its direct course to the open sea
for the flimsy pleasure of sustain
ing a monopoly. Astoria is to-day
head and shoulders above Port
land in its situation and facilitiest
