Yesterday morning while. Car
rother's milk wagon was being re
paired at Stinson's blacksmith shop,
the horses which were attached to it,
took fright and fled fast and far down
Cass street. When they got to the
corner of Chenamus the wagon turned
a sommersault to the north and the
horses who saw a shower of milk cans
in the sky wheeled to the west and
made tho best time on record out that
boulevard. Thero was very little
damage to either wagon or team.
To-day is the appointed time for
that fearful storm to strike us. Wig

aclysm of nature to occur in

of folks wo would be.

More Brick Buildings.
Among the many improvements
that the present season will witness in
Astoria the improved style of build
ing will bo manifest. The era of
building brick structures may now be
considered as fairly inaugurated. Tho
Odd Fellows' building, now approach
ing completion i3 a good specimen of
what the future will produce. Great
difficulty, however, is sustained m
getting labor and material. Contrac
tors, architects, masons, carpenters,
and bricklaj'ers are alike busy, and
unless agreements are made away in
advance 'tis hard to count on getting
anything done. Capt. Flavel contem
plated building last season, but found
it well-nigh impossible to get material,
and when the Yaquina was burned
with all the lime aboard, the idea was
abandoned for the season. He intends
putting up at least one brick building
this season on the property on the
southwest corner Main and Chenamus
street. It will bo a three story build
ing, 50x100, fronting on 3rain street,
and running back 100 feet on Che
namus street, and when finished will
doubtless bo in as good demand for
stores and offices as is the present
structure across the street from our
office. In addition he intends to
build this summer two structures,
each 50x75 on the site adjacent to the
There will bo an adjourned school
meeting in the Main street school
house to-morrow evening. It would
be a good idea for every one interested
(which includes every parent and tax
payer in the community) to be pres
ent. In the matter of a new school
house it has been suggested by several
that the foundations of a building be
laid that will eventually fill all futuro
demands, enclosed under one roof,
present provision being made for pres
ent wants and the structuro finished
without any extraordinary demands
upon taxpayers for the coming year.
On tho other hand is the idea of put
ting up a building that while not
ready for immediate occupancy will,
when finished, be of a nature to meot
all possible demauds for some time to
come. The several views will doubt
less bo advanced and advocated to
morrow evening and some definite
conclusion arrived at.

On Wednesday last three persons
made an attempt to escape from the
Seatco, W. T., penitentiary, which
ended with disastrous results. Jake
Freeman was shot dead, Abe Reeves
was dangerously wounded and Riley
Field recaptured. It appears that
there had been a preconcerted plan
among a certain number of prisoners
to escape. At the opportune moment
they broke from the guard, but a shot
brought down one. Freeman was af
terwards overhauled and killed, while
the third was taken without a shot at
him. Freeman was serving two and
a half years for burglary, since Dec.
1, 1882, and was a negro. Standard.

Alert No, 1.
There will be a meeting of Alert Hook
& Ladder Co. at half-past seven, to-morrow
evening. A full attendance is re
quested. By order of the President
C. Bp.owx, Secretary,
There are a good many questions in
this fleeting show that come up every
little while. Somo arc persistently
held above tho General surface; among
them are woman suffrage, tariff legis
lation, social privileges, prohibition,
education and Sunday laws. At
present the questions of this kind that
occupy the greatest attention aro
woman suffrage and temperance. As
to the first, wo believe women should
be given the right to voto if they want
it. Probably if they had it they
wouldn't value it any more than the
men do, but it would dispose of one
vexed problem anyhow, and make
room for some other form of kindred
The matter of temperance embraces
a wide area, and is often discussed in
an intemperate way. Advocates of
prohibition, high license, and so on
often injure the cause they uphold by ig
noring tho difference between facts and
opinions, and assuming that they have
the absolute truth. It is natural for
tho average human to ''kick." If he
Bcei his fellow-man having what he
considers too much pergonal liberty
ho "kicks." If that fellow-man is
cinched by the men who aro in tho
majority at tho time, he "kicks," In
Portland and Astoria at tho present
timo the question is up for discussion.
It is neither our province nor our
purposo to usurp judicial, legislative
or legal functions, but simply to Btate
the case as it appears to us.
Our definition of liberty is, that wo
have a perfect right to do just what
we feel like doing, provided that wo
do not interfere with any ono else's
right to do the same. This it will be
seen, affords considerable latitude to
the individual, but yet makes him
subservient to circumstances. Society
is only an aggregation of individuals,
and what would be admissible in the
desert becomes a' punishable offence in
tho city. Tho question is one that has
boen discussed ever sinco Noah went
on a high old time after his alleged
adventure in tho ark. Somo men
want to drink, other don't want to
driuk, and don't want their fellow
creatures to have that privilege.
Happiness is what wo all seek:
Temperance men and women enjoy
happiness in spreading their doctrines
and witnessing their success probably
more than their adversaries do, in ob
taining state recognition by means of
licenso and safo guards that "regu
But narrowiug this thing down to a
smaller area it amounts to this. The
state assumes certain rights; these
rights are conceded; among them are
laws regulating education; the state
hero takes away a certain amount
of parental control and assumes
partial charge of the children;
few deny the right of tho state to do
this; the state also says, to- tho indi
vidual "if you commit crime you will
bo punished; if you steal you will bo
confined; if you murder, you will be
hanged" maybe; no one denies tho
right of the state to do this; these and
other statutes are in accordance with
tho direct law of self-protection. In
like manner the state reserves legisla
tive right concerning the sale of li
quors. It is conceded by ail that ex
cessive indulgence in alcoholic stimu
lant produces misery and shortens
life. Here the stato stcp3 in and
seeks to regulate the traffic. A man
may eat too much, or sleep too much,
or talk too much, or drink too much
coffee or tea, and thereby violate the
laws of health, yet injure no one par
ticularly beside himself, but should
he indulge to excess iu moro potent
stimulant he becomes eventually a
public nuisance and a source of ex
pense to the community. -It makes
no difference whether the individual
wants this thing regulated or not; tho
state wills it, aud tho majority com
mand it shall be done. But it should
not be overdone. In Kansas and
Iowa, fanatics and extremists got hold
of the thing and imagined that their
ideas must prevail. The mistake
they made was in appealing to the
feelings and the sentiment instead of
influencing the judgment. Tho high
est tribunal on earth is public opinion;
its decisions must prevail; it has de
clared emphatically and repeatedly
that the liquor traffic must be regu
lated and controlled; it is correct and
proper that that should bo done, but
though it has often been tried no at
tempt has ever yet been successful
where a man was taken by the collar
and made be good in spite of himself.
. Human nature is one of those things
that can not bo legislated against:
certain phases of it may and should bo
restrained, but in all well meant
euoru to guiue tuo puolic to
a realization of" what is best, care
should be taken not to over do the
thing by creating a feeling of resist
ance to sumptuary enactments.
