i'llS hsilft STXXViJUk I .- . I ASTORIA, OREGON: TUESDAY.- SEPTEMBER 23, 1S53 C. It. Thompson has opened a law oflice in tko White House, room G. Ordinance No. 195 would bo a good ordinance to enforce in one or two instances. H. B. Parker Returned yosterday on the Columbia from California after savoral weeks absence. A. J. Megler and party arrived home yesterday from a three weeks sojourn at Foley Springs. It i3 estimated that there are 300,000 cases of salmon on the river, of which 100,000 are still un cased. There is considerable sicknes3 in the city, aud doubtless will be till the natural weather returns, and the sun looks white again. The Northern Pacific Railroad runs acros3 the greatest country in the world from the greatest lake in the world to the groatest ocean in the world. It is a common occurrence to have a group of four to five compare watches aud find no two agreeing as to time. A standard for Astoria time is needed. What do tho people of Astoria think of Villard's answeW - Oregonian. Complete answer not yet recaived. By the way, what do the people of Portland think of the stock market? John Swinton saj's that there are 25,000 newspaper men in New York, and that they earn from $2,500 to 8000,000 a year. Swinny has some inflated ideas since he struck Gotham. E. C. Clayton lias finished a new map of the city of Astoria which is about as complete a thing of the kind as wo have yet been shown. He will send it to San Francisco where it will bp lithographed. Twenty years ago Frank Buck land was ridiculed for predicting that the dav would come when salmon would be cheaper than meat in Eng land, but the day has come and his foresight is confirmed. Tho Idaho brought down 500 cases salmon from Chilkat to M. J. Kinney. The catch at Capo Fox and Chilkat is reported good; a far greatar number of salmon, however, being caught at the former station. The aged mother of Capt. J. C. Ainsworth died at her home in Oak land, Cal., last Saturday. During a residence of thirty years in Oregon she was a valued member of society and had a wido circle of acquaintances many of whom she survived. Tho Portland Commercial Repor ter, which dearly loves a joke, talks of the enterprising city where it is pub lished, as being "the Northern Pacific terminal city of the historic Colum bia.' "Historic Columbia" is good, An exchange contains nn adver tisemont of a man who will reseat old chairs. The writer will gladly re ceipt some old bills if tendered fitting reasons therefor. This is about tho gentlest form of a dun that we c devise. The little girl of Mr. Burke, on Main street, died of scarlot fever yes terday morning; the other children of the iaimiy are recovering, and in the other families whero it has broken out the little sufferers are reported out of danger. The Twenty-first infantry sta tioned at Vancouver barracks will re mam there, and not exchange posts with the Tenth infantry, stationed on the lakes. The expense of the trans; fer would be too great to justify tho proposed change. On Salmon river in Northern Idaho, cotton has been grown to per- iection tins season. dome sugar cane and tobacco will be grown next T .it f 11 season, anu too year loiiowmg some darkies will be imported and bananas produced for export to Astoria. it is tnougnt tnat siiouid no un loreseen accident occur, tno now schoolhouse in distnet No. 1 will be ready for occupancy about November 1st. It is being well -constructed throughout, everything in it being put together by days' work, and when finished will be one of the best built houses in the4statc. Yesterday a change came o'er the spirit of our dream by the dying away of the horrid cast wind and the float rog in of a gray log, tnrougn tno rays of which the sun looked red as blood. Tho air was sultry and the perfumes from tho sinks and, cess pools through the city were in active aud successful competition with the oil works across the peninsula. A now dress is announced, and those who are posted say it will soon be fashionable. If it won't, then there is no merit in anything being "unique." It is described as being mado mostly of silk, of balloon infla' tion, beginning at the lungs and end ing at the knees, and will be known jm the Fedora puff, but for goodness 9ko don't say we told you. Among recent transfers of real estate may be mentioned the sale of the Alderbrook properly owned by Messrs. Bergman and Berry, and comprising about 150 acres of most desirable property, to Messrs. Bo zorth, Johns and Hanthurn. The price paid was in the neighborhood of 820,000. The enterprising Pomeroy paper after saying all the pretty things that it could Gnd unsaid in reference to the Yillard party, took a fresh hold and announced the important discovery that the brandy they brought along was fifty-one years old, was French and 'fine " Thov must liava rnven that editor an extra drink. Col. Parker, of the Walla Walla Statesman, offers to pay ten girls $30 per month to watt. Girls are scarce in Walla Wallaas elsewhere. Here they could get 830 a mouth "to wait' and wouldn't have to wait very long, cither. Such begging and praying and coaxing to got a girl for a month! They nro sometimes got for life with less trouble. The Pacific Liberal Association held their annual election at the schoolhouse at Woodard's Lauding, Pacific Co., W. T., on the IGth inst.. electing following officers for the en suing year: rresident ,lol. iiullard; vice president G. Faber; secretary, J. Dressier; treasurer, M. Louderback: librarian, J. urcssler; committee on books, G. Faber, Mm. Sevinson and H. Hanson. The Orcgonian throws a bomb shell into the municipal camp by pub lishing an alleged agreement whereby Dr. Chanman in consideration of solid support and gold coin did on the IGth of May 1882, agree wero he elected mayor, to nominate Tom Connoll for chief of police and L. Besscr for street superintendent .of the city of Port land. The next thing will be some' thing else. Special Treasury Agent Evans has returned to San Francisco from Washington Territory, where he has been investigating the reports as to the smuggling of Chinese from British Columbia. He states that he has given much time to the investigation, and that he has failed to find evidence that such smuggling is going on. The employers of labor in tho territory, he states, characterize tho story as a joke. Sometime ago we had a little item in reference to Itobt. Cnrruther's houso being tho first brick residence in Astoria, aud being on tho site of the first settlement on the northwest coast, i he item lias been copied in such an extensive manner that the house m question bids fair to be cele- brated. The last paper we saw it m as the Boston Herald, and it ih pre Eumably still on its travels. Mr. Carruthors will have his house ready for occupancy about November l3t The demand for Columbia-river salmon haslieen fairly active, without auy special features boing exhibited, except in tho country districts, where at the present season of the yoar there is a largo consumption, me conse quence has been that stocks art pretty well run out s.) much so that a ques tion may arise as to whether they will be sufficient to cope with the demand pending tne new arrivals, which are now on the way and may I e expected in the course of a week or two.

A Town Clock, From the tower of tho new public school building, over which on gala days floats tho stars and stripes, can bo had one of the finest views in this section of country. Few places can offer a greater variety of scene, aud among the possibilities of futurs seasons will be a good glass to be placed there. There ia, however, something else that should be in the new schoolhouse tower, and that is a large clock, with four dial faces and a bell to strike the hours. A town clock is something that Astoria needs, if for nothing else than as a matter of convenience, and now that there is a largo building, prominently located and with a proper receptacle for it a large clock with illuminated dials by night would be in order. Let us havo a town clock, its utility is plain. -Astoria merchants aro already, it is said, ordering goods in large quan tities from eastern dealers and manu facturers. Already, also, several new enterprises are in contemplation, aud Astona expects a large addition to her business interests, resulting in a com petition which, it is to be hoped, will redound to the general welfare of that live littlo community. S. F. Califor nia Grocer am Canner. Reports are still adverse to any lively or heavy operations on the Sacramento river, and it is generally said that the falling off in the pack will amount to fully 50 per cent. Thirty cents is still the ruling price for raw fish to fishermen. Two canneries at Martinez remain closed, as does Bradford's cannery at Chipp's island. The Central Pacific Railroad is now taking the canned salmon from tho cannery wharves on the Sacramento river for castem shipment at $1.25. Formerly cauners were forced to send their products to San Francisco or Sacramento at extra expense, tho above rate being charged by the rail road company from those points. This results in a saving to canneries from $10 to 811 per carload. A report was mado at the recent meeting of tho Fish Commissioners at Sacramento, setting forth the results of that body to enforce the law prohibiting fishing during the month of August. The arrest of twenty-seven offenders was reported, of whom twenty-hve were convicted, while two were still under bonds. Six moro arrests wero report ed, of whom three were convicted. Tho patrol instituted proved very efficient, and the convictions fol lowing theso arrests will probably prove a salutary influence.-Ca".
