; A Fodu-Masteb. Preparations are go

construction of another new vessel there,
which it is thought will be a four-master,
schooner rigged. It will be the first four-
master vessel built on the coast. Her ca

Lighting Gas "With the Finqeb.
Lighting gas with the ringer is a feat any
body may perform. Let a person, in his
slippers, walk briskly over a woolen car
pet, scuffling his feet thereon, or stand
upon a chair, with its legs upon four
tumblers to insulate it, and there be
nibbed up and down on the body a few
times with a muff by a second individual,
nd ho will light his gas by simply plac
ing his finger to the tube. It is only nec
essary to take the precaution not to
touch anything or be touched by anybody
during the trial of the experiment. The
shock of electricity required by the pro
cess we have described is discharged by
contact with another object. One person
mast turn on tho gas while the other

"old home" to be visited was in Pike
county, Missouri, and the pioneer hero is
an old unreconstructed Democrat. On
arriving at the station of his old home
the pioneer asked of some bystanders
wjao was the oldest inhabitant of the

A TALK OF TWO CITIES.
rrorrm of the 'TlKllftnte" Trial In Port

getting any word of tho trial, and the
following is collated from tho Portland
The case was called in the United States
District Court before Judge Deady, last j
Tuesday. About seventy spectators were

Boyle testified that in Astoria he was
working in a saloon. After the fire he
was notified to leave town, but failed to
go. He was arrested and lodged in joil,
where he was visited by the vigilantes.
They took him to their committee room,
handcuffed and blindfolded him, put a
stick gag in his mouth and marched him
up a hill. They gave him his choice of
leaving town or receiving twenty-flvo
lashes on his bareback. He refused to
go, and they advised him to write to his
Earents, and asked him the address of
is parents. They then ordered him to
halt, took off the 'handcuffs and warned
him that if he attempted to move they
would kill him. They then gave him
twenty-five lashes on tlie back.
On cross-examination he testified that
when he was in Socorro, New Mexico, a
party of vigilantes ordered liim out of
town, and he declined to go, when ho was
allowed to remain unmolested. He told
this circumstance to the Astoria vigi
lantes, but not to intimate that they
could not drive him out. While drunk
one night he accidentally discharged a
Sistol in "Russian Bob's' saloon. He
ad played poker and faro, and was about
gambling houses a good deal, but denied
trying to open a gambling-house about
Astoria. He was known as John Jones,
because when some strangers asked him
his name he thought it was none of their
business, and replied "Jones.' He had
never told anybody that he was a bad
man. He had a 'dispute, but no fight,
with "Russian Bob,' lxut a woman.
Witness could not po.-itively identity the
man who had handcuffed him. He left
Cannda in 1873; went back, and left
again in 1882 for Arizona, where he had
been before. On the second visit he re
mained about eight months. He got ac
quainted with a good many cow-boys
there; did not claim to be an expert shot,
and had never made that claim in Asto
ria; had been accustomed to carrying a
pistol; never had any trouble with the
Arizona cow-boys, in Astoria he had
worked for three days tending bar, but
during tho balance of his residence thero
was spending money he had brought
there; had never voted in this country;
he had a room in the Parker house in As
toria and slept there sometime at night;
he was in the saloons of "Swilltown," and
occasionally jriaj'ed cards there. On re
direct examination ho stated that he
knew a man in Astoria called "Arizona
Jack," but hethe witness) was not that
man. It was customnry tor saioon-keep-ers
to keep a six-shooter or some other
weaixm under the bar, and when he was
tending bar he kept one for use m case
anyone attempted to molest him.
In the afternoon Jo. buprenant testm-
ed that he was present at the citizens'
committee meeting when Boyle was ex
amined. About six members of the com
mittee left on special business during the
meeting. Witness went on the hill
where iioyle was whipped, and there
were thirty-five or forty other citizens.
There was one light in the party. Wit
ness did not know whether the vigilantes
were armed or not. Arriving at the hill,
there was some talk among the com
mittee about scaring Boyle with the idea
that he was to be hanged. There was
some talk of a rope. He was asked if he
would prefer to Ikj lashed or hanged, and
ho replied that ho didn't want to bo
hanged. He was asked if he had anv let
ter or trinkets he wished to send to his
mother. He asked that his parents re
ceive no information that he was hanged.
After he was whipped he was made to
kneel and swear that ho would attempt
to injure no one present, and that he
would leave Astona, never to return.
The night was verv dark, with no moon.
The whipiing, twenty-five lashes, was
done by Capt. Johnson, with a cat-o-
nme-tails. borne of the blows were light
and others heavy. Bo vie was bare to tho
waist. Capt. Johnson was selected to do
the whipping- because he was a seaman
and supposed to be able to do the work
in good shape. Witness was acting as
special policeman while the committee
was in session, lie uearu jjovio say oe
fore the committee that he was a gam
bier by profession. Many of Johnson's
blows struck Boyle below the belt, where
he was protected by his clothing. The
committee was composed of about 200 of
the best citizens of the town merchants
and business men.
An evening session of the court was
held, during which tho testimony ot a
large number of witnesses in behalf of the
defense was taken. At the defense
rested and the plaintiff commenced in
troducing testimony in rebuttal.
"What Time Ik It."
Tho lack of unanimity among the
clocks and watches of Astoria has long
been the subject of painful knowledge to
niairy worthy citizens whose respective
chronometers fail to agree in indicating
tho current hour, lo had two watches
anywhere within three minutes of each
other is very rare and the keeping of ap
poinlments'is rendered uncertain there-
bv. A new element lias now entered in
to the calculation which may mend mat
ters as far as wo of Astoria are concern
ed. Tho railroads of tho country havo
adopted a new standard of time, the ope
ration of which auccts tho local time
very differently. According to tho new
svstem which has recently gone into use.
it is three minutes and fifty-eight seconds
past twelve at New lork city by the old
standard when the clocks strike twelve.
Farther tho time changes Jess and
less from the old standard until tho me
ridians-of this coast are reached, when
the change is the other way, and railroad
time is faster than the old time used to
be, until by the time one gets to the
longitude of The Abtobian office he
wouiannaii uiswaicuTverexaariang rail
road time that he would be nine minutes
and fifty-two seconds faster than what
might be considered standard time in the
same locality. Muhicipalty after muni-
cipany uub umciuuy rccugmzc-u me new
time, and although Astoria is not what
might be styled a railroad city, yet a due
regard for the eternal fitness of things
will impel us to keep up with the proces
sion by pushing tne nanus of our respect
ive clocks and watches about ten mm
The clocks of a continent are being
changed to correspond to the new time
ana sixty minions oi people are euuui"
their meals, and going to work and gut
ting by a different system of tune than
they were a short time ago. The princi
ple arrived at is uniformity. When tho
clock at the Western Union Telegraph
office at New York is striking 12, the
ciocK in me uxiicago ouice in Kiniuug n,
in tho Denver office tho clock strikes 10,
the San Francisco office tho clock
strikes 9. The matter has been under
discussion among railroad men for sever
al years, and it was finally decided to
make the seventy-fifth meridian of west
longitude from Greenwich the base of
thp new svKtpm. If the result to us of
Astoria shall bo to give a set standard on
time to which all tickers shall acknowl
edge sway, then those eastern railroad
men will have contributed something of
rood to our civilization, and aided all in
the observance of that punctuality which
is said to be ''the politeness of kings.

The d'randnt Hnellinp in America.
Among tho marvelous stories told of
American millionaires, none is nioro
wonderful than that relative to the career
of Henry Villard. In boyhood's days we
read stories of men who from poverty
rose to dazzling affluence, and sprang
from low estate to princely splendor, but
no stranger tale was ever told than that
of the poor newspaper man at 20 a week
ho is now building the hnest residence
on the American continent.
It is situated on Murray Hill, tho 'ob
Hill" of New York City; was begun last
summer and eclipses anything in that
luxurious metropolis that has yet been
designed for private residence. It occu
pies an entire olock, having a frontage of
200 feet. That part which he will occupy
is on the comer of Fifty-first street. It's
frontage is GO feet and its depth 100 feet.
The other wing will be similar, except
that it is divided into tnree parts, and
between the wings is a "court 89 feet in
width and 73 feet in depth. The portion
of the building behind the court extend?
back 40 feet beyond the wings aud is a
double house of itself. In the center of
the court will be placed a magnificent
fountain, around which will be a broad
drive and in each corner a grass-plot. It
ill be inclosed by a massive fence of
iron with stone posts. E3ch house com
municates directly with the court.
The extension of the great building is
more grand than beautiful. It Is the
result of a combination of Roman and
Florentine architecture, the plans of the
Cancelleria Palace at Rome and the Par
nese Palace being copied by the archi
tects. Lue material is sandstone, tne
light-gravish amber-stone of which Trin
ity Church was built. Everything is
massive and there is little attempt at
ornament. Huge blocks of stone are
piled one upon another and overtopped
by a heavy cornice of the same material.
"Tho wings are three Btories in height
besides the basement and attic stones.
From tho sidewalk to the top of tho
cornice the measurement is 68 feet The
basement and first story are rusticated
and others plain stone ashler with the
angles strengthened by rustication. The
front of the two center houses is sup
ported by five arcades with heavy col
umns of polished granite. Dutch tiles
cover the roof. The whole effect is severe
.Entering the spacious portal ot the
illard residence the visitor finds himself
in a magnificent reception room, fourteen

in inlaid wood floor, ceiling, walls and

in mahogany, inlaid with light woods,

The music room, however, is the chef

diminutive theater, 48 bv 24 feet in di
mension and 32 feet from floor to ceiling,
extending to the third story. It is in the
style of tho Francis I room of Fontaino
bleau Palace. The colors are white and
gold. A wainscoting, eight feet in hight,
in carved pino, surrounds the room. At
one end is a gallery for the musicians.
The ceiling is an elliptical vault, and ev
ery detail shows the skill of the artist.
Between tho music room and vestibule
marble stairs twelve feet broad lead to
the upper stories. Again the tone is yel

spans the stairs. The elevator-way occu
pies iue remaining space.
Across the hall are the mam dining'
room and breakfast room, which can be
thrown into one apartment, 2J by GO feet
in size. Carved woods again replace the
marble. The room is executed in English
oak inlaid with white mahogany. Tho
ceiling is divided by beams cased with
English oak and the carved Inezes, three
feet in width, are inlaid with floral de
signs and inscriptions. The two mantels
are of red Verona marble. The upper
stones are m keeping with tho splendor

The furniture will be especially mag
nificent. That of the drawing-rooms
will be upholstered nnd of colors har
monizing with the decorations, all the
designs being original, and the ht
tings throughout, locks, gas fixtures, car
pets, etc., will be made specially for tho
purpose. Tho cost ot the building un
furnished will bo an even million dollars.
Ui this tho decorating of the drawing
rooms cost S50.000: the dining room?.
20,000; the hall, $30,000; and tho music
room, S20.000. As much more will be
expended on other work in the latter
room a year hence. To finish the interi
or of Mr. viuard's house necessitates the
expenditure of 250,000. The upper
floors are now about completed and tho
furniture is arming.
Tne structure when completed will be
the most magnificent residence building
in the country, far surpassing tho Van

to recognize and mention any attempt at
home manufactures. We have long held
the opinion, and we have freely expressed
it, both in these columns in our capacity
as journalist and in private among our
acquaintances, that Whangdoodle needs
manufactures to build her up. It will not
be until men of money outside the town
recognize our willingness to help our
selves that capital will come to take ad
vantage of the unexampled facilities for
investment of which whangdoodle is
full. It is, therefore, with peculiar pleas

Bill Pritchard (who in our advertising
columns calls the attention of our readers
to his place of business) has been built
by McKee & Furdv, the popular black

know that the business of one of our ad
