The Clatsop Telegraph.
As soon as work begins on the new
light house at Tillamook rock, the
proposed telegraph from Astoria to
the coat will be greatly needed. As
it can le built from Astoria to Point
Adams for less than $2,000, it seems
a pit' that it is not done. The West
ern Union could not put 2,000 to bet
ter use than to build it themselves,
independent of any aid from thi peo
ple. Such a line would serve Tongue
point cannery, Fort Stevens, Point
Adams, tlie Sea-Side, Summer House,
and other resorts on Ulatsop, besides
performing a very important part in
the service of the IStk Light-lionsc
district during the progress of the
work at Tillamook rock, and after that
light-house is completed vessels can
sail all around the station, and receive
orders from consignees, agents, and
owners, thus materially increasing the
business of the line in tiuie. 3ly all
means let this telegraph be built.

Again, as usual, Mr. Wm. Hume is
first in the m-trket with cased salmon
this year. We want an account of
the product of salmon on the Columbia
river for the Smithsorian institute.

They came Ti-om the Sacramento river

John West started; 1 $70, Warren &
Co. started; 1S70, J. W. Cook S: Co.
started also; JS74, Joseph Hume
started; etc., etc. What we want is
the data of the rise and progress of
this business. Will you please drop

you know about it ? The annual

-JRiht, Bro. Abbott, right.: when
you resolved not 'to speak dispar
agingly of any town in Columbia
count', nor permit others to do so
through your columns. True, you are
not there for such purpose. Your
towns have more or less advantages.
Let them stand or fall on -their own
merits. Certainly., do not aid in team

The "Way to Serve TJtem.
Three burglars entered the house of
Mr. Richards, on East Eighty-sixth
street, 2ew York City, for the pur
pose of robbery. r- Richards shot
one of the number dead with, his re

third fell at his feet, imploring mere-.
The man who was killed proved to
be a state prison convict. On the ex
amination for the killing, Mr. Ricliaids
was discharged, on the ground that it
was justifiable. Of all criminals, next
to the murderer who lies in wait, a
burglar particularly a night-time b.ir
dar is most to be feared, and is de
serving of the least compassion.

The next time the Ocklahama

not be seared into a conniption-fit by
the horrid blowing of that whistle for
half an hour, as was the case at half
past seveK o'clock yesterday morning.
Steam whistles are sounded for fire
alarm in Astoria, sometimes. Perhaps
the man who did the tuning yesterday
was wot aware of the fact.

The Call says: "Wild young
men and criminals, when unknown to
the ixdicc, have, whon arrested, on
several recent occasions, in this city
given the names of prominent citizens
as their own. 4t is an old dodge, and
while it does not help the offender it
is, of course, a little embarrassing to
the upright member of society who
takes up his newspaper and finds he
has been arraigned for stealing or some
other crime." We have observed this
thing in Astoria before now. As a

Judge to "double the dose" in such

Some one has taken to himself
great credit for the discovery that
kerosene, when properly applied, will
make tin and even silver, shine like a
mirror. This is but a feeble attempt
at a right appreciation of that article.
We saw an account the other day of a
young woman who was toying with a
kerosene can which she held in one
hand, and with a lighted match which
she held in the other hand; soon after
which there was an explosion and a
biaze, and not only the"kitchen utensils
shone, but the whole neighborhood,
with n "brilliancy that could be seen
for miles around. The fact is that

chemical products which produces its
