PI & $ '&&S ? i Ll "'J" Vol. xix. Astoria, Oregon, Wednesday Morning, May 16, 1883 No. 40. BY MAIL AND TEIiEGRAFH. Dublin, May 14. Joe Brady was hanged at 8 o'clock tbis morn ing. A vast concourse gathered? outside the prison yard in which Brady was executed, this morning. A strong force of cavalry, infantry and police were present to pre serve order, and there was no at tempt at disturbance. However, a wreath of flowers was received by Brady, to which was attached a card bearing an expression of grief at his fate, from Irishmen living in Liverpool. Brady made no statement to the jail chaplain or to the governor of the prison. One of the last things he did was to write a letter to his mother. He carried a prayer book in his hand to the scaffold, and was thoroughly resigned and firm. His body fell nine feet, and his death was instantaneous. The number of persons in the crowd outside of the jail is estimated to reach 100,000. The throng is said to have been even greater than any of those which collected when executions were public. At the moment the black flag was seen over the jail the cry was raised uHats off!" and every head was uncovered. The crowd shortly afterwards dispersed quietly. Sullivan Victorious. New York, May 14. Fully 10,000 people witnessed the Sullivan-Mitchell sparring match this evening. In the first round Sulli van knocked Mitchell down twice, and was himself knocked down once. In the second round Mitchell was knocked down twice, fifoing off the platform once and hurting his leg. In the third round Mitchell went down in Sullivan's corner for the second time, and was knocked down on the ropes. He failed to come to time, and the battle was awarded to Sullivan. Mitchell was entirely over-matched. TTkat ScBRlor Sillier Thinks. Sax Francisco, May M. Sena tor Miller was interviewed this evening and said: "Though the Democrats affect to believe their chance of success certain, I differ from them. The election last fall cannot be considered a criterion in national politics, and the tariff issue is apt to contravene their calculations. Every one who knows anything about politics in New York, knows that she is as apt to give a large majority the other way as she gave the Demo cratic ticket last fall. It is manu facturing issues which decide elections, and I shall be surprised if the tariff issue does not play an important role in the results. I do not by any means consider the result as a foregone conclusion, On the contrary, it all rests on the next session of Congress and its acts. Until that is ended all opinions as to the chances of various candidates is but guess work. The yellow fir of Oregon and Washington Territory, cut in win ter, the proper season, when the. sap is down, is very far superior to the white oak of the Eastern Coast. It will more than double outlast it. Oregon fir planking being also so much longer than that of white oak, it makes a far stronger vessel. It combines, therefore, the two great advantages of superior strength and durabili ty. There are vessels afloat at the present time constructed of this kind of timber, which have been near thirty 3'ears in service, and are still rated as seaworthy. The Willamette valley and all Oregon is interested in building up a commercial city in our own state either at Portland or As toria. Every interest of state economy and state pride demands that we favor our own state rather than Puget Sound. For that rea son we are all interested in the effects which Villards bridge will have on wheat and other foreign ships coming into our own state. Vidette.

Amos Markel, a well-known and reliable gentleman, writes us from Mount Baker, Samish river, What com county, W. T., under date of May 7th, 18S3, as follews: "You are at liberty to publish the fol lowing facts in your paper: A fir tree was cut and hauled at Moan & Monroe's logging camp on Joe Leary slough, last Satur day, containing four logs. The first measured 24 feet in length and 80 inches m diameter, and contained 5424 feet of lumber, board measure. The second was 24 feet long and 71 inches in diameter, and contained 4749 feet of lumber. The third, 24 feet long and GC inches in diame ter, contained 4,214 feet of lum ber. The fourth was 32 feet long and 01 inches in diameter, and sealed 3779 feet, making a grand total of lumber in this one treo of 19,1GG feet. This is one of the largest trees cut in this section during the present season, and I took pains to get its accurate di mensions, thinking it might be of interest to some of your readers." Post InteUigencer. Returning home from a party in St. Petersburg once, Prince Gorts chakoff missed from the pocket of his overcoat his pocketbook con taining 30,000 roubles. He at once informed the chief of police, who assured him that the thief would be quickly hunted down. Surely enough, before a week had passed the chief returned to the prince the entire sum of mone3r intact, but without the pocketbook, which, he said, the thief had thrown away to avoid identifica tion. This was very well, but a day or two later, Gortschakoff, putting on the same overcoat, was surprised to find in a pocket, overlooked before, the missing pocketbook containing untouched the 30,000 roubles, which he really had never lost at all. The idea of restoring the supposed stolen money to the prince from the pub lic funds, in the hope of thus win ning faver for zeal and efficiency, speaks worlds for the police offi cer's ingenuity, but presents a curious phase ,of Russian official ethics. A citizen of Paducah, Ky., re cently became possessed o a lit ter of pups of an utterly worthless breed, but, being a humane man, was averse to slaughtering them. So he proposed to the Captain of a steamer that he should take them up the Tennessee and try to give them away to the denizens of that region. The Captain as sented and told the owner to put them in the basket, cover the same with mosquito-netting and invoice them to some person in Florence, Ala., at a value of $25 each. This was done, and the bas ket of pups placed at the foot of the cabin stairway, where they were surrounded bjr an admiring throng, the Captain occasionally speaking a good word for them. Before the boat reached Johns ville erery pup in the basket had been stolen or spirited away by the admirers of choice dog-flesh on board. It has done more for the rheu matic sufferers throughout the land than any remedy ever known. We refer to the Great German Remedy, St. Jacobs Oil. I. L. Tobias, the well known and popu lar cigar manufacturer of 447 Third avenue, New York, informs the writer that both himself and his wife have been great sufferers from rheumatism, and St. Jacobs Oil is the only thing that did either of them anv good. "The fact is," said Mr. Tobias, "It has cured us entirely and in a very short time, and we used only a couplo of bottles the whole cost two dollars. Much less expensive than a long doctor's bill, with the apothecary's charge for putting up his prescription added. You can tell the world what I know of St. Jacobs Oil, and what my wife knows about it. I want every body with rheumatism to know as much of it as we do, and to feel as good as we did wheu we found ourselves as well as ever." The Jiev. Geo. 11. Thayer, of Uour bon, Ind., says: "Both myself and wife oweouriiyesTOSmi.oH's Consumption Cure." 'Sold by W. E.-Dementi Down in the State of Cauca in the Republic of Colombia there are many deposits of auriferous gravel. Most of the small gulches and ravines have been worked out a hundred years ago, though more or less mining is still going on. Many large streams have aurifer ous beds and the natives are not up to turning the course of the river, so they mine in a peculiar way. The women take a batea in their hands and dive down in ten or fifteen feet of water, scrape the loose sand and gravel into it and bring it to the surface. They then climb on the bank and "pan" it out. The get all the way from a few cents to four bits a batea. Sometimes the men engago in this work, but it is mainly done by the women. After a dive they sit down on the bank and smoke awhile before going down again. They teach the children of twelve to dive down for gold also. Some times rich pockets cr deposits are struck. Arrangements are rapidlj' pro ceeding for the opening of the universal fisheries exhibition in London. The American depart ment has obtafned 1200 feet ad ditional space from Denmark, and goods from America will thus be exhibited to better advantage. A prominent feature of the Ameri can department will be 500 crayon drawings, illustrating the whole process of fish culture. It is said that the Nihilist lead ers have spread a report through their agents in all parts of Russia that the czar has promised to make large grants of land to the peas antry immediately after his coro nation, hoping that their disap pointment at what they will sup pose to be a violation of his prom ise will provoke them to disloyalty and insurrection.
