Astoria. The Saucelito was built in
New York, and ran for a time on the

San Francisco several years ago. Wo

rumor of opposition.

Believing that the cars would not
be running into Dayton from "Walla
walla, by the 15th of 2Iay as promised,
a citizen of Dayton lias backed his
opinion to the tune of $500. His
taker is a "Walla-walla man who claims
to be posted. Some men change their
opinions, the Chronicle suggests, for
less than five hundred dollars, some
times. Any one able to give any inform
ation of Mr. Conmd Keody, who left
Pennsylvania long ago, and who is
said to liave been engaged in the cat
tle butane or in tanning, or in both,
somewhere in this country, would con
fer a favor on his friends by commu
nicating with the editor f the Pacific
Christian Advocate, Portland, Oregon.

Mr. Ackerson, of Tacoma, will
sail by the steamor State of Califor

Oregonian yeatorda' noticing the trip
of the Canada from Portland to As
toria in tow of the Tacoma in ten hours,
classes it as the best ton-time ever
made on the rivor. The Canada was
taken to sea by the Tacoma in twelve
hours from Portland. 31 r. Ackerson,
as owner of these vessels, refers to the
matter with pride.
What a pleasure to enjoy the
climate with which wo of Astoria are
blessed. The flood of spring .sunshine
lures us over the water of the bay.
riplmg with a metallic gleam in the
mild wind, covered, as it wore at dawn
of day with the myrid of Ashing boats,
giving it that appearance of Ytsiiitian
surroundings which entitle Astoria to
the appellation ''Venice of America."'
The poet Wilson aptly describes our
pleasant April days:
Now o'er the earth poling April comes
iiei apron inn in liuntrrs;
And oft her fingers sprinkle them
With soft ana dewy showers;
She brings the birds to sweetly sing,
The bees to hum areund:
She fills the air with balminess.
And carpets the dark ground.
Business in Astoria is reviving.
The fishermen's condolas can be seen
on the so called "Sea of Venice" of
Oregon every afternoon with white
wings spread to the breeze. The
whole city has an air of energy and
thrift. Many additions have been
made to our population during the
past month. Mr. Case, who former'y
attended to the banking business him
self entirely, has called to his assist
ance Mr. R. X. Carnahan, a worthy
and competent accountant, necessita
ting the last named gentleman to resign
his position as book keeper of the
Occident hotel, which position is now
satisfactorily filled by Mr. F. C.
Norris of The Astokian office.
Upon the subject of harmony in
church work, Rev. H. K. Hines utters
the following forcible truth: "Hitting
people, exalting self, and personal ex
perience and work, over others; is
sure to widen the breaches of con
fidence, and put barriers of ice be
tween hearts that should be united by
the melting glow of Christian love.
This once done, and pride of opinion,
and shame of confession both come in
to render increasingly difficult that
future unity of feeling which must be
had, yet is so difficult to secure. On
the first class book we ever saw, now
nearly forty years ago, was this signifi
cant motto, United we stand divided
we fall. It is worthy of memory."
The boat stoves made by M. C.
Crosby, with fire-brick bottoms, are
superior to all others in this market.

The Revised Word.
The revisers of the New Testa
ment have substituted the word
hades for hell, wherever the iatter
objectionable term , occurs. The
Virginia Chronicle thinks this is
intended as a delicate compliment
to Bob Jngersoll and Henry Ward
Beecher. But even Beeclier risked
nothing as & clergyman by de de
eouncing: the doctrine of a
material hell as false, for the
Dean of "Westminster had, tome,
years before, openly preached
and in his published works
asserted thai the biblical descrip
tion of lieli must be accepted
figuratively. And the Dean, in
this bold denial of tlie material
lake of fire rait no risk of losing
his benefice o( 30,000 a year as
Dean of Westminster ad its
Abbey, for twenty years ago,
after a protracted trial which had
run through all the lower courts,
the Lord Chancellor "of England,
from the bench of the highest
court of the British Empire, had,
in the wittv language of Punch,
"abolished hell and taken away the
christian" last hope of eternal

Fit AN K 1J. LOVKM., Clerk.
- Defaulting clerks are turning up
in numerous instances recently. Dis
patches inform us of the work of one
of the Northern Pacific raiiroud com
pany's land agents in Minnesota. Thi"s
is the way James Orr got SiJ,(KM of
the property of a leading New York
leather firm. His plan was to ship a
car-load or trnck-load of Jiides to some
outside confederate, "who would tell
them and place the money in the
hands of a third part. Being trusted
as he was, it was an easy thiug for
Orr, in the rush of business, to get rid
of say SGOO or 700 worth ef hides
at any time. In February and other
periods when the books were balanced,
he would turn in his accounts all
corrected and balanced, though
of course, the quantity of hides
that he represented to be on store
in the loft would be short just the
amount of his stealings. In this way
he managed to elude suspicion. The
manner in which the discovery came
abuut w:is this: Tast February a
gentleman called to purchase several
thousand hides of a particular quality.
Orr overheard him conversing, and
knowing that when the hides came to
be delivered the next day the quan
tity on hand would be found short,
made up his mind to flee immediately.
The next day he did not come down,
and, on sending to his wife in Wil
liamsburg, found that he was not at
home and that his wife was becoming
alarmed at his absence. He was
arrested in Denver.

Says a prominent horseman in
giving his opinion of Vanderbilts
mare, Maud S., whose great feat at
Chicago put her at the head; and
'dubbed' her queen of the turf; in my
opinion the time is not far distant
when a two minute gait will be rec
orded, it will certainly be the case if
horsemen continue to use Kendall's
Spavin Cure as it limbers up the joints,
removes all blemishes and in fact has
made a complete revolution in the
horse business See advertisement.

To this day. after a Japse of two hun
dred and fifty years, science has given
tis nothing to take its place. It effectu
ally cures a morbid apietlte for stimu

of liquor as it does a fever, and dotroys
iKith alike. The powerful tonic virtue
of the Cinchona is preserved in the
