Whether or not Robeson is the
man who did the murderous deed in

he has certainly made some foolish

garded as a dangerous, bad man; who

bility of doing liarm.

SUSPICION.
under
The last man m the world that we
would evor expect to hear of being as
sassinated was J. W. Robb kind
obliging, respected and loved by evory
bodj the perfect type of a true citi.
zen; yet he is killed without a
moment's warning by a desperado.
The circumstance, as near as can be
ascertained, are that the assassin
entered Mr. Robb's ofiice yostenlnj
afternoon between the hours of three
and four o'clock, and deliberately hot
h:s victim. Two gentlemen in the ad
joining room heard the rejmrt of the
pistol, hoard the thud when Mr. Robb
fell, ami mimodkteJy entered his
office, finding him tlaad. The assassin
had then escapeu. There is a train of
circumstances connecting .1. G. Kobe
son with the tnurdr,aid he was prompt,
ly arrested and jriacdd in jail. Th
Coroner, Mr. Bonj. B. Franklin, sum
moned a jury, and the findings of the
inquest arc as follews:
We, the undersigned junn-s, sum
moned before B. B. Franklin, Coroner
of Clatsop county. Oregon, at theallice
of ,1. W. Robb, met at aaid otliee on
the 25th day of Awil. in Clatsop
county, Oregon, to inquire into the
cause of the death of aawlJ. W. Robb,
whose body lay therein. After being
lirat duly sworn as jurors, according to
law. we examined the IkmIv, heard
the evidence of the attending physician
and the witnesses produced, and find
that the body is that of .1. V. Robb,
lawyer, and resident of Astoria, Ore
gon; that he came to his death by a
pistol-shot wound in the breast, in
flicted about C) o'clock i. v. of mid
day, and we believe one .1. G. Robe
son to have inflicted ?aid wound, and
to have committed an act of murder
therein.

Mr. Robb was a most exemplary citi
zen, and his untimely fate has pro
duced a shock upon this community
not easily described. If an earth
quake or a tidal wave had rolled in
upon us the effects could scarcely
have Ihsou more startlintr. and that
such an act could be perpetrated in
one of the most central localities, in
business hours, in a quiet city like this,
is a striking commentary upon the fact
that no man knows when his life is
in jeopard'. It shakos the confidence
of man in man and produces impres
sive foelings of unrest in the whole
community. Mr. Robb will be almost
universally mourned, and to his family
and friends, ho loaves a wife, and a
son and a daughter in this city;
we extend our sincere sympathies.
"What Might Have Been.
Only a short time before his tragic
death yesterday Mr. J. W. Robb left
our sanctum to go to his office on
Chenarnns siroet, and prepare for
moving into The Astot.iax building
to-day. ilis assassin probably rc-
alized that it would be a difficult job
to got out of The Astoriax building
after committing such a bloody deed,
and if it be true that he laid down the
cards where he was engaged in a so
cial game, about that hour, with the
remark that he had a job to perform,
that he was going to kill a man before
night, he had perhaps noticed that the
painters had just finished lettering tho
windows for Mr. Robb in this build
ing, and if he did his villainous work
he "must do it now," when he did.
Thorc is no doubt in the minds of
most people but that the fellow ought
to be hung, but whether he will or
not is another finest ion. Had he
waited until Mr. Robb moved boforo
doing his bloody work he might have
boon killed himsolf before leaving the
building, as the tools to fix such as
hiin were not very far away.
It seems that thore will be plenty of
evidence to convict Robeson of the
murder, but it is all circumstantial.
Ho borrowed the pistol, or bought it,
of A. G. Spexarth, and walked de
liberately back to Spexarth's place
and returned the deadly weapon after
committing the deed. Upon examina
tion one chamber of the pistol was
empty, but one shot was fired.
The word boom is now incorpor
ated in the English language, and
those who have a horror of s!ang can
use the word without fear. Among
the 11,000 new words added to the
last edition of Worcesters dictionary
is boom, which Ls defined as follews:
Boom In business, a sudden and
rapidly increasing demand for a com
modity, with consequent rise in price;
honce, generally, an enthusiastic and
spontaneous popular movement in
favor of a person, thing or cause.
A Portland paper purporting to
be Oregons representative Commercial
Reporter says: "Capt. Hubbard, of
the Jane A. Falkinburg, was compelled
to remain over one trip at Honolulu
on account of his wifes illness." With
a few trilling errors the paragraph is,
in the main cerrect: L Mrs. Hub
bard is not now, nor lias not been in
Honolulu; 2. Capt Hubbard never
yet remained over a trip at Honolulu;
3. He was not compelled to remain
over anywhere on account of Mrs.
Hubbard's illness. If the Reporter
intended to state that Capt. Hubbard
is in command of the barkentine
Jane A. Falkinburg, it stated a fact.
That and nothing mere.
Ferils of Pishing.
The following account of the capsiz
ing of John Bergman's fishing-boat,
and drowning of George Miiler, the
boat puller, was told our reporter by
Henry Warmbolt, the surviver:
Left Elmore's wharf, after reefing
sail, at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon;
drifted a short distance with the tide,
in a porfect calm; noticed squall com
ing round Smith point; then I told
Miller to take in the sprit, which he
did, the remaining sail being very
small. Just then a fearful squall
struck the boat i let go the sheet, on
account cf her having no headway, to
luff her up to the wind. As soon as
the squall struck the boat, she bent
over slowly until the boom struck the
water, when she went over altogether,
myself and Miller going under the
water. When 1 got my bend above
water, I nas about two fathoms from
the boat. 1 swam to the stern of her. J
When I got there I saw Miller strug-, d wm lhen be Sj far advanced that
ghng in the w.tter. A sea came and ,,.-,.. , , , .
knocked me off the boat. 1 then swam to j the line to Astoria may be begun; but
her again and put my two fingers in the ! not till the main overland line is com-eentre-board
hole, and with the other pleted, or nearly so, do we expect to
hand I got hold of Miller, who had al- ' sm anvrork done in this direction,
scratched me "on the hand. He kept for all piactical purposes,
hellering: "Harry, save me." I told j
him te keep quiet or 1 could not hld Major Adams of the Columbian,
him. lie paid no attention to me. A St. Helens, has irone into the stock
big sea then came and washed us both
off the boat, 1 then lost my grip of
Miller, and swam back to the boat,
when I saw Miller drifting away. That
was the last I saw of him. I then
called forhelp.when Marshall Kinney's
boat No. 14, manned by Mr. Stone
and Nicadoni Nelson, and two others
came up. They had boon pulling for
dear life. Thev told me to get in their
boat. 1 said never mind me, go and ha3 eome ju erwpM Utl)x have. Thev

get in their boat, which was my only an overbit on the left, made when
chance for life, as my boat was totally they were calves. They are two-year
underneath the water, the anchor hold-
iiig it. We then searched for Miller j
for about an hour, but could not seo
anything of him. Another boat then
came up, and with their assistance, we
succeeded in saving my boat and net.
Astoria Iron Works.
The first meeting of the stockhold
ers of the Astoria Iron Works was
held at the office of J. G. Hustler, on
Saturday, April 23d, 1881. The fol
lowing named persons were olected
directors for one year: A. D. Wass,
John Fox and J. G. Hustlor, and at
the first meeting of the directors hold
on the same day and at the same
place A. D. Wass was elected presi
dent, John Fox superintendent, J. G.
Hustlor secretary, and I. W. Case
treasurer. It was ordered that the
stock be collected, and that the neces
sary tools and materials be bought so as
to commoncc work immediately.
Portland Union Depot.
The Standard informs us that "it is
rumored that after tho new Oregon
and Central railroad ownors obtain
possession thcro will be great changes
made in the operation of tho road in
Portland. Within a few years a large
depot and shops will be erected on tho
company's land south of the city.
The west side depot will be removed
to the common ocpot buildings, and
the Fourth street track will be aban
doned. Such a change as this will be
a decided advantage, for it is a
nuisance to the company to have
trains watched by policemen with a
view of nipping any unlucky engineer
who could n't keep her back to tho
ordinance rate of speed.
Tin, Silver and Lead Find.
An Ilwaco gentloman informs us
that a party over there havo discov
ered tin silver and lead in paying
quantities. He says: "The3' have
hit just the thing, directly on the
river bank, where a vessel inay lay and
load. These gentlemen, are anxious
to buy the land on which the precious
metal is to be found, but are short of
means. They offer to mortgage for
the purchase price SG.O00, and give a
third interest in the mine to the man
or mon who will furnish the money.
Tho material is very easily worked and
can be smelted in a common black
smiths forge. Anidt and Ferchen Jiavo
tosted it. Two pounds of rock will
produce four ounces of silver, tin and
lead. A furnace costing $500 would
make a lucrative business. The three
claims can be purchased for sir thou,
sand dollars and can be worked imme
diately, being sufficient rock on surface
for months to come. When I speak
of claims I mean to infer they are ful
ly 1C0 acre claims with one-third
rock, and bottom land available for
dairy purposes. Provided you should
see or hear of any persons inclined to
invest, through the request of these
gentlemen please notify me."
W. D. Ogden has been appointed
post-master at Yakima.
The Oregouian informs us that
the remains of Capt. J. A. Pennellj
who was drowned two weeks ago at
Taquina bay, will be brought around
to Astoria and shipped to San Fran
cisco for interment. The body will be
brought to Astoria on the steamer
Wright, now under command of
Capt Denney.
By a recent postal decision men
can actually make money by getting
their bills and statements of accounts
printed. Statements of accounts and
bills of sale when made out on paper
having printed headings, can be sent
by mail for one cent, if tho envelope
is left unsealed; whereas, if it is made
out on unprinted paper, it will cost
three cents. Thus by patronizing The
Astoriax two cents can be saved on
every bill or statement that is sent out
through the mail.

The Railroad to Astoria.
A Portland eveuing paper says that
the labor of making a road bed for
tho Oregon Railway and Navigation
company's track at certain points be
tween the Cascades and The Dalles
will be very great. In some places it
will be necessary to blast out galleries
in the face of solid mountains of rock,
similar to Cape-horn on the Central
Pacific road. About two thousand
men are employed at present, and one
thousand more are wanted. The road
from the- Cascades to The Dalles will
be completed by October, and if a suf
ficient number of men ran be obtained,
the road between Portland and The
Dallas will be completed by the did of
1881." To which we will add, that
the connection with the Union Pacific
railrond division. from Gruuiier to Baker
business. Recently he rescued a
sheep of his, and twin iambs, that
were where they were entirely sur
rounded by water. And he offers
that: "If any one will get up our
heifers so we can get them into our

of a calf. We understand one of them
