Ordinance No. 531.
Considerable comment was occa
sioned yesterday by the arrest about
two a. m., of the proprietors of the
Astoria Iron Works, the Occident
Hotel and the Parker House, for al
leged violation of ordinance 531.
The offense of the Astoria Iron
Works was in repairing the rudder of
a boat so that the owner could attend
to his business; the night clerk at the
Occident had taken money for a
night's lodging from some belated
traveler, who naturally wanted to go j
to sleep, and the night clerk at the !
Poi-i.r Hnnco -n. uniiK' nf imiinp i
breach of the peace, fn all three
cases the amount deposited was re
turned and the city attorney very
properly refused to make any com
plaint. The officers making the ar
rest exhibited more zeal than discre
tion in their action. If the ordi
nance is to be observed in
the strict letter rather than
with a view to its spirit and plain in
tent it will prove a fruitful source of
annoyance to worthy and respectable
citizens who don't caro to be harassed
nor annoyed in such manner. People
get hungry and sleepy and machinery
will break just the same whether the
ordinance doe3 or does not exist, and
to arrest a machinist, or hotel keeper,
argues very poor judgment to say the
Railroad for Pacific County.
The latest enterprise that wo have
to note is the incorporation of tho
Washington railroad company. The
company is incorporated unuer tne
laws of Washington Territory, and
articles were filed in tho Auditor's
office August Gth, with the names of
Benjamin Hutton, John Wood and
Robert Chabat as incorporators. Tho
object of said company is to "build,
equip and operate a railway across the
portage from llwaco to tho head of
navigation on Shoalvvater bay; also to
build wharves, depots, warehouses and
other necessary structures, and to
purchase, sell or lease real estate, or
any otner property tnat may
be required for the building aud
operating of said railroad. The capi
tal stock of said company shall be
810,000, divided into 200 shares of
$50 each; duration of said company
to be fifty years." The above named
gentlemen as incorporators are to act
as trustees for the first six months.
The place of business will be llwaco.
It will be some Utile time beforo
active operations will begin, as tho
company will have to hold meetings
for the election of officers, issue stock
and have surveys made across tho
portage. It will probably require
until some time in the fall before the
construction of the road will be com
Henry Ward Beeclier.
Next Wednesday evening Astorian3
will have an opportunity of hearing
the world's greatest preacher. This
is high praise, but it is tho verdict of
two continents and the simple an
nouncement that Henry Ward Beecher
will lecture here is sufficient without
a word of eulogy or comment. An
early procuring of seats at Strauss'
will obviate trouble m the rush us tho
time draws nigh.
-It was Franklin who advised a
young man to empty his purse into
his head, for no man could steal
knowledge, and no investment of
money could be better. In the same

tion to go to tho long established Co

state that in conversation with Capt.
Parker cf the Kate F. Troop last Fri

that the entire expenses of all port
charges on his vessel would not exceed
$3,000. This statement like all oth
ers of its class is susceptible of careful
proof, and is sufficient answer to our
