At a regular meeting of Beaver
Lodge, no. 35, L O. O. F., held on
Thursday evening, November 30th,
1882, the following officers were elected
to serve the ensuing year: William
Bock, tf. G.; John Hahn, V. G.; T.
S. Jewett, R. Sec; L. Wilson, P. Sec;
tf. W. Case, Treasurer.
Perhaps nothing better illus
trates the growth of Astoria than tho
fact that on the steamers which now
arrive twice a week from San Fran
cisco, there is nearly as much freight
and mail matter as formerly when
there was a vessel but every five

this city is something astonishing. A

It is reported that the ship Har
vester, lying at Seattle,is unable to get
a crew on account of the beastly treat
ment of sailors by the officers, and
that the officers of the ship Challen
ger are on trial in Seattle for inhuman
treatment of sailors, the testimony
disclosing a lamentable state of af
fairs. In the good old days of long ago,
says the Vancouver Independent , the
contractor furnished good clothing,
which is attested by the fact that the
Rev. Father Eels still wears a military
overcoat, yet in good condition, which

Tuesday of each month. The change
goes into effect on Tuesday evening
next, consequently there will be no

The Oregon Short Line Railway,
from Granger, Washington Territory,
to Baker City, Oregon, will be five
hundred and fifty-six miles, if the
present surveyed route is used. The
road is completed two hundred and
lixty miles, leaving three hundred and
twenty-six miles to build. The grading
on one hundred miles of this is nearly
completed, and a large force of men
and teams are engaged on the work.
Thanksgiving was celebrated in
Astoria in the usual fashion. The un
toward aspect of the weather made
home delights seem doubly attractive,
the streets were quiet At tho church
as divine service was held. At Grace
Church $23 35 was collected to send
to the Good Samaritan Hospital, at
Portland, and two boxes of fresh fruit
and vegetables were sent by tho same
congregation to St. Mary's Hospital,
t this place.

J Dangerously "Wounded.
j At half-past three yesterday inorn
j ing a man named Pass Smith shot and
dangerously wounded William Rob
ertson in George Hill's saloon. From
j a bystander who was present during
the wholo affair, we learn that the
trouble began by Robertson having
some words with another party in the
saloon, and after considerable jawing
they went up to the bar to tako a
drink. A3 Robertson was passing,
Smith, who is employed in Hill's
bowling alley, mado a remark that he
wouldn't drink with a man that had
insulted him. Robertson took it up,
and both he and Smith commenced
growling at each other, finally propos
ing to fight. Smith struck Robertson,
who at the time was starting to take
off his coat,and who immediately but
toningit around him again,8tarted tow
ard Smith who drew a small seven
shooter and fired, the ball striking
ing Robertson in the side about four
inches to the right of the navel. The
wounded man was at once conveyed
to St. Mary's Hospital and medical
aid summoned. Smith was arrested
by Policeman Hunter and taken to
jail. At a late hour last night Rob
ertson was in a dangerous condition.
It is the opinion of the physicians in
charge that should inflammation su
pervene, he will dio. Robertson had
been employed last as a runner for
A Live Educator.
Prof. McElroy. state superintendent
of public instruction, was in Astoria
on Thanksgiving day. In conversa
tion with him he manifested great
desire to have Clatsop county fittingly
represented in the Oregon City Insti
tute on the 25th, 26th, 27th and 28th
of this month. He is a thorough
going man and seems disposed to im
bue life into the edtication.il interests
of the state. 1 1 is a matter that di
rectly concerns all of us; anything
that can be done to raise tho standard
of education should be fostered, and
there are few things of more practical
help to schools and teachers than ef
ficiently conducted institutes. Wo
shall be glad to see a good representa
tion f "om thi3 county. Prof. McEl
roy needs co-operation in this matter.
Wo aro prone to complain down here
that wo aro neglected; here is a chance
for our teachers to distinguish them
selves. As tho men wet e going to work
in the mines at Carbonado, W. T., on
the 27th, s.iys tho Standard, the
watchman reported gas in mine No. 2,
in one of the gangways iu which
there had been no work for several
days. Befoie the fanning apparatus
could be started a young man named
Sponco entered the mine with an
open lamp and an explosion followed,
instantly killing him. Four hundred
thousand tonB of coal are at theso
mines awaiting transportation.
The Qiieen of the Pacific arrived
in yesterday morning, and after dis
charging one hundred and fifty tons of
freight for Astoria proceeded on her
winding way. The steamers Madras
and Volmer, with Chinese passengers
and freight, left out for the flowery
kingdom. The British ship Eskdale,
eight days from San Francisco, arrived
in. The Oberon and Empire cleared
with $123,500 worth of wheat. The

The Astouian, as well as other
journals, hero and elsewhere, havo
copied and credited to tho Scientific
American, or other sources, a para
graph descriptive of the "Moving
Mountain" at the Cascades of tho
Columbia. The paragraph in ques
tion was in Oregon correspondence of
the New York Times, and tho corres
pondence of tho New York Times is
Mr. Clarke, of the Willamette Far
mer. Willamette Farmer.
The article in question was copied
from an Eastern Oregon exchange
and was credited in that paper to the
Scientific American. Wo aim to givo
credit to all papers, and hold our
selves blameless in this matter.
The 2J. P. surveyors havinjr
surveyed the line for the branch of the

and the boundary line, have returned
to Bismarck, where they await orders.
It iBpresumedJthat they will be ordered
to proceed with the Buford branch of
the Northern PaciGc from Bismarck.
The proposed line has been indicated
on all maps issued of late by tho
Northern PaciGc Company, and there
is no doubt grading will be commenced
early next season. This will open np
a vast tract of land, and prove one of
the main line's best feeders. It is the
intention, ultimately, to continue the
line to Benton, thus cutting off the

Fort Steven's, Dec 2, 1882.
Editou Astouiak :
A few days ago you published a
statement, taken from another paper,
in regard to Jim Bridger, which, I
have no doubt, is an incorrect account.
General Philip St. George Cook, of
the army, was in the country when the
events narrated occurred, in 1832.
He has written an interestim account
of GlaEs, which he learned from tho ,
hunters and trappers, and he tells us
that the man who left the wounded
man was named Fitzgerald. A boy also
was left with Glass, and ho, also,
abandoned him. Glass was found by
the Man dan Indians, and remained
with them until he recovered from his
wounds, when he joined the white
men. The boy was in the camp, but
tho man had gone on a hunt, and was
never seen by Glass again. The boy's
life was spared, as he, was punished
enough, by tho appearance of one
whom ho thought was dead. So I think
that injustice has been done the mem
ory of Jim Bridger, and I have taken
tho liberty to make this statement.
Mr. Applegate is an exceedingly well
informed gentleman, but in this case
ho is wrng.

A Question of Fact.
Some months ago Geo. L. Curry
shot a snipe which weighed eight
ounces, but the weight was disputed,
and was made the subject of
considerable controversy iu a
New York sporting journal, and the
matter was finally dropped for the
time, being considered an Oregon
snipo story. The ordinary weight of
a snipe is 4i ounces, but frequently
heavier ones are shot, and it is the
opinion of sportsmen hero that the
bird is steadity increasing in weight.
Yesterday H. W. Abrams of Eugene,
sent to Geo. L. Curry a snipe weigh
ing 7 ounces, a fact that can bo at
tested by several witnesses. This may
open up the argument jn sporting
journals again, but it will not do to
further dispute the weight of Oregon
wild fowl. Standard.
