V) Yol. xx. Astoria, Oregon, Tuesday Morning, October 30, 1883 No. 25- y A TRUE EURO. Newspaper readers will remem ber Charles Reade's hero, who saved many lives from drowning1, and in whose behalf the warm hearted novelist addressed the American public nearly ten -ears ago. But in Philadelphia the' have just discovered :i modest young man of 30, who, if his ex ploits arc to be measured simply by the number of lives he has saved, is a greater hero than James Lambert. "Rcddy" Shannon, who is a. hard-working stevedore in Philadelphia, living in a humble frame tenement in the "Crooked alley," near the wharves, is credit ed with an astonishing number of rescues of no less than 1G5 men and boys. He says he never "got a woman" in his life, which is partly to be accounted for by the fact that his life-saving work seems to have been done about the wharves. He began when he was ten years old and has been at it ever since, because, as he said modestly to n. reporter. "It's my nature to drop in if I sees any body in trouble, and I have pulled out a. tidy few." But he remarked deprecatingly, "It looks as though somebody was making a fuss about nothing. They are always tumbling in about here," he said, "and I never get more than 'Thank you' from any of them and sometimes T don't even get that,. The first thing a man does when he's brought ashore, is to shout for Ins hat." He explained that they were usually poor men and he "wanted nothing. It was a strange irony of fortune that Shannon, who has saved so many from the water, lost his six-yoar-old son by drowning. The boy seemed to have inheritod his father's liking for the water, but got beyond his depth and drowned with a hun dred men and boys looking on, who did not realize that he was not in snort. Congressman O'Neil is interesting himself triMain a government medal for Shannon, who is modestly grateful for this and other attentions, but seems disposed to think that the chance to earn more than $12 a week for his wife and four children would be a pleasanter reward than many medals. Globe Democrat. When a Chinaman dies his wel fare devolves upon those whom he leaves behind him. To fail in veneration for him, however dis reputably he may have lived while ornamenting or disfiguring the earthly scene, would be a crime of which no right-minded Chinaman could ever be guilty. So the de funct is started well in the next world as well, indeed, as the means of his friends will permit. Paper efligies of clothes for him to wear m the next state of exist ence are bought and burnt. He will -want traveling boxes in the Chinese heaven small paper boxes covered with tin foil must accordingly be consumed too. It is clear that moncv will be needed for his "chow-chow" and in order to enable him to keep up a re spectable appearauce. Paper money, or rather tin-foil counters stamped like money, must then be burned, or he will be in a sorry plight. Possibly he may require a house; this can be conveyed to him in the shape of a small toy cottage, burnt like the other things. In fact, os there is no end to his wants, so thoro seems to be no limit to the ingenuity displayed in meetiug them. Those persons who facetiously allude to the ocean as "the drink,', will be happy to know that since the completion of the Northern Pacific railroad there is not such a long time between "drinks" as on a certain historical occasion when the governor of North Carolina met the governor of South Caro lina. A lady in Toronto got to laugh ing over some amusing incident and couldn't Rtpp. Finally a doc tor was called in, and he couldn't quiet ue As a last resort some -one kad to tell her that her back ,iir was coining down. Thanksgiving Proclamation. The President of the United States has issued the following: "In furtherance of a custom of this people, at the closing of each year, to engage, upon a day set apart for that purpose, in a special festival of praise to the giver of all, T. Chester A. Arthur, presi dent of the United States, do hereby designate Thursday, the 29th of November next, as a day of national thanksgiving. The year which is drawing to an end has been replete with evidences of divine goodness. The prevalence of health, fullness of harvests, sta bility of peace and order,, growth of fraternal feeling, spread of in telligence, civil and religious lib erty all these, and countless other blessings, are cases for rev erent rejoicing. 1 do, therefore, recommend that on the dav above mentioned the people rest from their accustomed labors, and meet ing in their several places of wor ship, express their devout grati tude to God, that he hath dealt so bountifully with this nation, and praying that his grace and favor abide with it forever." An Atlanta, Ga., dispatch says the conviction of the Kuklux here has created a sensation. The ringleaders are men of consider able property, and are members of a large family in Banks county, named Varborough. Four of the family were tried and all con victed. The charge against them is that they committed outrages on negroes, because the negroes voted for Hon. Emory Speer lor Congress. Speer was defeated, and his appointment as United States district attorney made it his lot to prosecute the Kuklux. The charge of Judge McCoy was so liberal for the defense that acquit tal was considered certain. When the verdict was read convicting the entire gang, several broke down and sobbed audibly. The prisoners were handcuffed and taken to jail. Their counsel will use every effort to secure a new trial. They have not been sn tenced. The penalty is from one to six years. This is the first con viclion of Kuklux in Georgia. Dan Haggerty was shot dead at Prescottj last Saturday, by John Elfus. The latter had been shak ing dice and claimed that one man owed him fifty cents and wouldn't pay. He beeame so abusive that Haggerty told him to keep quiet or he would have him put out. Continuing his talk, he was eject ed, but returned and said he want ed to kill the fellow that owed him fifty cents, and became so boister ous that the barkeeper, by Hag gerl''s orders, again ordered him out. In fifteen minutes he re turned, and standing outside fired a rifle through the window. The ball entered Haggerty's neck, lodging in his jaw and killing him instantly. The murderer escaped and hired a man to bring him to Walla Walla in a wagon, where he was arrested. There having -been some discus sion as to who is the oldest Oregon settler, a friend of this paper off ers, in order to end the dispute, the fact that Mr. G. T. Allen, now living near Cathlamet, came down the Columbia in 1S30, entered the employ of the Hudson Bay Com pany, and, except at short inter vals, has lived in Oregon or Wash ington ever since. Our informant promises to get the exact date. He says that the old gentleman is well preserved, is well informed and is still a constant reader.--Oregoriian. Two-thirds of the cattle raising in Wyoming and Montana is in English hands. It costs $3 to raise a three-year old, and the animal is then worth 40. The more cattle a man owns the smaller the cost of raising and caring for each ani mal. Mostot the grazing is done on public lands. Judge Barrett's order for the examination of President Villard has been practically abrogated by the transfer of the Northern Pa cific railroad case to the United States court. A passenger train bound north on the Pan Handle road and an out-going freight on the Michigan Central collided, thirty minutes southeast of Chicago, last Sunday. Both engines were thrown from the track and wrecked, falling upon and setting lire to the flagman's box. into which flagman Peter Collie retreated upon seeing that a collision was inevitable, and was burned to death. William Morris, of Logansport, engineer of the Pan Handle train, and .lohn Kel logg, of Michigan City, head brakesman of the Michigan Cen tral train, were killed. Denegan engineer of the Michigan Contral train, was severely injured, and, crazed by hurts and fright, ran four miles to Dyer, Indiana, where he arrived a lunatic. John Gor man, the Michigan Central fire man, was also hurt. The passen gers were badly shaken by the shock, but no one was seriously injured. It is impossible to locate the responsibility for the accident. The Paris conference for the protection of submarine cables has concluded. The most important feature of the conference was the English proposal that, in the event of war, any power will be at liber ty to withdraw, with the right of readmission when peace has been concluded. The conference adopt ed this principle. This means that in the case of war any power may cut cables at its own risk, and take chances similar to protect prop erty. P Absolutely Pure.
