Tho steamer Idaho came down
yesterday loaded to the guards. Sho
put off a little, took on some lumber
at Kinney's dock for tho Cape Fox
canning company, southern Alaska,
and started north.
It is rumored that the Chehalis
Videttc has suspended. Wo sincerely
hope not. It is a first rate newspaper
and is doing good work for the locality
where it is printed. Stick to it boys;
success eventually awaits you.
In the police court yesterday,
one party who had been drunk,
was fined $2 ; another for

Sho certainly deserves it.

The A. B. Field, Messrs. Leinen
weber & Brown's new steamer, started
yesterday morning on her initial trip
to Tillamook. Sho crossed out at
nine o'clock with a full freight and
passenger list. This is the beginning
of another line of coastwise steamers
that will bring Astoria the trade of a
valuable country, and thus be of
mutual benefit to all.
Cruise of the Corwin.
The rovenue cutter Coricin, Capt.
ficaly commander, is now in San
iFrancisco fitting up ior a long voyage
to the frozen north. It is the inten
tion to start about May 1st, and steer
for the northeast Siberian coast, where
the Indians who assisted the crew of
the Rogers are to bo rewarded by
sundry presents. From thero the
vessel proceeds to Attoo, in the east
ern hemisphere, the farthest east or
west of tho American possessions, and
any stray whaler in need of relief or
sealing vessel driven off by stress
of weather, will be succored. The
trip will last fivo months.
Oregon Short Line.
According to the Salt Lake Tribune
of March 15th the Oregon Short Line
is shipping great numbers of men and
teams to the front, to work on the
grade, haul ties, lay track, etc. The
company aro in earnest about com
pleting the road this season to the
Oregon line, and forming a connec
tion with tho Oregon Navigation and
Railway company's line, thus giving
them a through route to tho Pacific
Materials for the road are fully pro
vided for, we understand, and much
of the grade west of Shoshone has
been completed. Graders are stationed
along the line tor a distance ot over
100 miles, over part of which work
progressed all last winter. The com
pany expect to put through trains on
the road from Granger west within the
next two or three weeks. At present
the Montana and Idaho travel passes
through Ogden instead of diverting
from the Union Pacific at Granger, as
will be the case when the road is once
fully open to passengsr travel.

Items Local and Otherwise.
One of the most important elements
of success among tho many necessary
ingredients that go to make up a well
regulated print shop, is a local re
porter; a personago whose business it
is to present in truthful English an
unbiased, impartial account of every
day transactions in the city. His
methods of getting news are very
plain and devoid of all mystery. They
aro in accordance with the good old
way that has descended to us from
time immemorial, and consist simply
of looking around, "taking notice,"
asking questions and listening to the
answers. This matter of uews is
purely a relative one. To some it is
news that a hod carrier tumbled down
and broke his pipe in New York,
yesterday, or that a bank cashier was
caught playing faro in Chicago; to
others it is news to know what is
going on nearer home; the simple
sending of a lot of truck over a tele
graph wire and making a paper a sort
of waste basket for everything however
trival to be dumped into it, doesn't
make news of tho contents. It simply
brings the gentle or ferocious roader
into a breakfast contact with all man
ner of horrors aud lends unhealthy
condiment to his morning meal. The
events of hu own immediate neigh
borhood, what was done in town, and
what is going to be done, the actions
and transactions ot those whom ho
daily meets, these constitute that of
which the local reporter doth dis
course, and happy is it for him if ho
possesses discretion to keep from vio
lating privste life or wounding pro
priety by sacrificing that sanctity of
personality which every one holds
dear. Some people seem to think
that the fact of seeing a statement in
a newspaper is sufficient evidence that
it is so; "it must bo so, for I saw it in
the paper." Others .take the very op
posite ground, and think that tho
fact of seeing a statement in a public
journal furnishes prima facie grounds
for disbelief. The truth, the golden
mean, lies between. It is to the di
rect interest of a newspaper to tell the
truth, simply as a matter of business
policy if through no higher motive;
and any one who supposes that every
little yarn aud rumor is caught up
and put in type is several de
grees from the facts. Every
statement made in a newspaper, if
avowedly given as news, is in ninety
nine cases out of a hundred, carefully
verified and confirmed beforo publica
tion. From the. time the news first
comes to the ear of the local editor it
undergoes h greater crucial test before
being "written up" than any it can
possibly bo given by the mo3t critical
reader. Let him be told that such a
man caught so many salmon, the night
before, tho first thing is (though to
many it would seem trivial) to see the
man himself; if this is not practicable
to get the story told him by some one
else and see how the two agree.
Should a third confirm tho tale with
out previous understanding, it is
strong presumption, that the state
ment will be written up from that.
Wo have personally known of cases
where the reporter inlervied seven
different individuals relative to an oc
currence and got seven versions of
tho affair and each one wa3 sure that
he was right. All this is, of course
trouble, but it pays tho careful colla
tor of news in as much as his state
ments if conscientiously written are
rarely contradicted. Of course there
are those who find fault and say "it
isn't so; I know different,'" but that is
their prerogative. They'd grumble if it
rained or blow, ur was hot, or was
cold, or neither, or both. Tho point
wo wish to make is that it is manifest
ly to tho interest of the reporter to
get a thing right, to have a correct
version of whatever it is ho is trying
to tell and it might sometimes be just
as well for those who live in large
cities to give him credit for a certain
amount of good intent in that regard.
It is surprising how one may be mis
taken, and yet bo positivo that ho is
Three years ago wo were
walking down the main street of a
pleasant California town with two
other men, all being newspaper repor
ters, when tho sound of fire-arms was
heard, and on turning the corner we
found a man prostrate and saw his as
sailant skipping nimbly toward refuge.
One of us said he heard only one shot,
a moment before, another knew posi
tively that he had heard two, while
the other was as certain as a man
could bo that he heard three. Hero
were three persons supposedly of av
erage intelligence, who had they been
placed on the witness stand would
have sworn each contrary to what tho
others did, and about something that
they were almost eye witnesses of. It
illustrates what may bo styled "tho
personal equation," and exemplifies
that everyone oven a critic is liable
once (or maybe twice) in his life to bo
".VOW WELL AM STKOSi."

The sale of Syrup of Figs is simply
immense. Everyone is takingit, and all
admit that it is the best medicine ever
used. Children crv for it on account of
its pleasant taste, and grown up people
who have used it once never lake any
thing else. Unlike other remedies for
biliousness and constipation it never
loses its power to act, and it always
leaves the organs on which it acts
stronger than before. Besides one feels
