Astoria, Oregon, Saturday Morning, April 7, 1883
THE NORTHERN PACIFIC.
To the inquiry, when will the
missing link of the Northern
Pacific disappear, Agent Clark
says, in the first part of August
probably, before that month closes
certainly. The gap at present is
280 miles. Track laying is pro
gressing from each end. On the
westward division two miles per
day is going down, on the eastern
end a mile and a half. As soon as,
the work is a little more advanced
greater strides on each end will be
made. The switch back around
Bozeman tunnel will be ready
when the road is, and the tunnel
itself will be open in November.
Clark said fervently, "I'm through
with Chinese, heaven be praised."
He has now about 2,000 men at
work laying track, building bridg
es and surfacing. They left the
couutry over which they worked
Sahara like in appearance, a per
fect desert, without settlement and
scarcely a shanty. Where Scan
dinavians had worked, on the con
trary, little hamlets sprang into
existence, and the marks of human
habitations were plenty. The
Scandinavian wanted a job, and
when he got it worked like a Tro
jan, while Johnny Chinaman
worked for Johnny Chinaman, and
the ever present hope of a speedy
return with lots of "Melican
dollee" to the land of his birth.
Clark said Dagos did well enough
but the Scandinavian was the best
of all foreigners. Gen. Anderson,
chief engineer of the Northern
Pacific, who is with Clark, affirms
all that is said by fcthe latter as
to the time of connection, and
says settlements are springing up
like mushrooms. He is confident
that the bulk of the East India
trade will come via the Northern
Pacific when it is completed. At
present ships from the East Indies
traveling on what is called the
great circle, reach the Pacific
coast about in the latitude of
Puget Sound, and have to go GOO
miles south to market.
Another famous name is now
added to the remarkable death list
of distinguished men furnished by
the year 1883. Its earliest hours
brought tidings that Gambetta
was no more; the death of Chanzy,
one of the most illustrious of the
French generals, soon followed;
presently came that of Prince
Charles, the biother of Emperor
"William; the following day died
Gustave Dore, and three days later
Flotow. The next noted name to
be added to the catalogue was
that of Sir Salar Jung; upon his
followed that of Wagner; Lord
Selbourne's death occured only
last week, and this was succeeded
by that of the old Greek states
man Coumounduros, and this in
turn by that of the Russian Gort
schakofF. During the same period
many men of national celebrity,
and one, at least, of wider fame,
havo died on this side of the At
lantic. The first to go was Judge
Allen, Hawaiian minister to the
United States, then followed Sen
ator Lot M". Merrill; and then in
rapid succession, the sculptor
Clark Mills, Dr. Beard, William
E. Dodge, Marshall Jewell, the
actor Thome, Edwin D. Morgan,
George Dawson, Alexander H.
Stephens and Peter Cooper.
Other names, nearly or quite as
well known could be added to this
list, which is already long for so
small a fraction of the year.
A woman was the only passen
ger in a Montana stage except her
baby, whom she wrapped in her
fur clo&k, leaving herself unpro
tected from the zero temperature.
The driver saw that she was be
numbed and would freeze to death
unless roused to violent exercise.
He dragged her from the coach
and left her by the roadside. "Oh
my baby!" she cried. The driver
cracked his whip. The stage flew
-over the snow with the woman
running after. The race was
-kept up for nearly two miles, when
the driver took the mother in
-again and wrapped his coat around
her. He bad warmed her blood
.-and's&ved Tier life.
To Protect Timber Against Fire.
The following notice is being
extensively circulated throughout
Oregon, Washington and Idaho,
and is of interest to all cencerned:
Department of tue Interior, )
General Land Office,
Washington, D. C. Mch. 8,1SS3 )
The attention of the public is
called to the fact that large quan
tities of public timber is annually
destroyed by forest fires which, in
many cases, originate through the
carelessness of hunting, prospect
ing and other camping parties;
while in some instances they occur
through design, I take this meth
od of warning all persons that,
hereafter, the cause and origin of
all forest fires will be closely in
vestigated, and where the fire is
ascertained to have originated
through either carelessness or de
sign, the parties implicated will be
prosecuted to (fie fall extent oj the
Special timber agents are here
by directed to proceed against all
offenders under the local laws of
the state or territory, relating to
unlawful setting out of fires, in
which the same may occur. The
public, generally, are requested to
aid the officers of the government
in its efforts to check the evil re
ferred to, and in the punishment
of all offenders.
N. C. McFaklaxd,
Tho "Way a Swede Sees it.
Pervading all classes of the
Swedish people and controlling
them in their plans and ideas is
that strong vein of practical com
mon sense which insures a conser
vatism of conduct and action that
proves of singular benefit to them
in their daily dealings with men.
If one knows a good thing they
are all sure to know it sooner or
later. These were our impressions
while persuing a few lines from
Mr. B. C. Sandberg, of Ogden,
Weber county, Utah, wherein he
says: I have used St. Jacobs Oi
and I wish to tell my countrymen
that it is the very best remedy I
have ever tried for rheumatism.
It is with pleasure that "ve also
present the name of a well-known
citizen who can speak intelligently
dy. Everybody living on the South
side knows Mr. J. D. L. Harvey,
a gentleman who has been a resi
dent of Chicago for twenty years.
His establishment, "the Palace
market," Nos. 10, 100, 10S Twenty-second
street, is probably the
finest of its kind in the city, and
numbers among its customers most
of the aristocratic families of that
section of Chicago. Mr. Harvey
expressed himself upon the "oil
subject" as follews: "I have
spent over 2,000 to cure my wife
of rheumatism. Two bottles of
St. Jacobs Oil accomplished what
all the medical treatment failed to
Drinjr about, l resara it as a
greater discovery than electricity.
It is a boon to the human race,
and I am glad to have this op
portunity of testifying to its re
markable efficiency. I cannot
speak too highly of it, and would
be recreant to my duty to those
afflicted did I not lift my voice in
To render tho writing perfectly
legiblo on all books, records,
parchments, etc., tho following
process will prove valuable:
First moisten the paper or parch
ment with water, then pass over the
written lines a brush which has
been dipped 3into a solution of
sulphide of ammonia. The writ
ing will appear quite dark in color,
and this color, in the case of parch
ment, it will preserve. On paper,
however, the color gradually fades
away, but it may be restored at
pleasure by the application of the
sulphide. The explanation of the
action of this substance is very
simple: the iron which enters into
the composition of the ink is trans
formed by the reaction into the

convict from Seatco, returned to
his old home near Kalama, and

Very elaborate preparations are
making for the coronation of the
Czar. Many hundred horses are
being transferred from the impe-j
rial stables at St. Petersburg to I
Moscow to be used in the grand 1
pageant. Forty stable carriages'
are -to be in line on that occasion.!
Some of these are historic vehicles j
and many of them are ancient.
Among them is the magnificent'
gilded carriage which was present
ed to the Empress Elizabeth of
Russia by Frederick the Great in
174G. Among the horses appoint
ed to draw these carriages are
fifty-nine imported from Hanover
expressly for this purpose. Mos
cow is alrea-ly preparing to enter
tain royally the numerous guests.
None of the persons invited by thej
monarch are to be lodged in hotels;
the houses of the notables, the no
bilit' and the dignitaries of the
church are open to them. The
entertainment will he no cheap af
fair. Fifteen thousand roubles
are to be expended on ball-room
decorations, and altogether one
fete to be had at the charge of the
nobility of the ancient capital is
likely to costnot less than 100,000
roubles, or $80,000.
"White, sunny picturesque,"
writes a Mexican correspondent,
"the ancient city of Chihuahua is
worth a long journey to see and
study, especially in the dawn of
the strange and new reawakening
that treads just now on the fleeting
heels of time. What a study for a
painter was the church plaza when
1 looked upon it in the earlier
hours of the dar, framed against
the dark lines of distant Sierras,
so brown and gray in color and
tone and arched over by the mar
velous blue sky. The wonderful
purity of the air touches the lungs
as fine wine spurs the blood and
stimulates the nerves. To breathe
in it is quaffing of unbottled
ozone, and makes the sluggish
veins of autumn age burn and
thrill with the fire of spring days."
A Bridgeport, Conn., man has
inside of a week forced blossoms
on a branch cut from a cherry
tree. He kept it in water and
mixed with, the water the first day
five grains oi nitrate of soda and
increased the dose one grain every

ble. Before long the buds began
to swell and finally burst, continu
ing in their growth until bunches
of blossoms appeared. He declares
that he will have full developed
cherries in two or three weeks.
A kite was made near Roches
ter, N. Y., recently of lumber two
inches wide by half an inch in
thickness. It was covered with
Manila paper and the surface con
tained nearly 250 square feet.
The string by which the kite was
flown was of three-eight-inch rope
and 5,000 feet in length. It shot
into the air like a balloon,and after
floating a mile high for two hours
was brought down by means of a
pulley and team.

company transported 29,U4S emi
grants into central Dakota. Emi
grant movables to the amount of
138,340 tons also passed over the

abouttwo carloads per day.
Some prospectors went over to
Gray's river not long since, after
being exposed'to the scarlet fever,
and gave the disease to several

where the prospectors stayed.
Great indignation exists in that
neighborhood in consequence.
