In the police court yesterday Fnnk Hall forfeited $i on a charge of drunken ors: Jas. Jefferson forfeited on a charge of vagraucv-. Workmen were busy yesterda- laying water pije from Court street northward to the wharf. The mud and- wet make the present job a disagreeable one. Carl Adler has a splendid display of goods in his two stores corner Genevieve and Squemoqua streets, and every atten tion is paid to the wants of customers. General Spragae was elected ma3'or of Tacoma last Monday. Ho was the only candidate. The ladies cast 170 votes for him. Nino aldermen were elected also. So says the Standard. A floral "wish-bone' is the appropriata gambol at weddings this season, the parties to the coremouey standing be neath it, as heretofore beneath the lloral Itell. Tho significance of the wish-bone racket is that one of the two is bound to get the better of the other in some way. The schooner Jicda. Capt. Gage com manding, arrived in from San Francisco yesterday, hay-laden for Astoria. Capt. Gage reports making tho trip in C7 hours, which is most excellent time. He left S. F.. the same time as the Areata for Coos Bay and the Emjrirc for the Souud. The Areata got ahead of him, though he held her in sight quite a while; ho left tho Empire astern. Coal Find Reported. The latest re port of a coal find comes from the place of Mr. A. A. Anderson, on the north side of the Nehalem, near Riverside, three miles from tho railroad line in Sec. 32, T. G, N. II. ". "W. The find is a good one, tho vein being ten feet thick. FonooT tiu: Rust. "If jou will let me take your stick of candy Fll show you how I can swallow it and make it come out of my ear.' Tho candy was delivered; the young magician deliberately ate it. Then for a space of two minutes he threw himself into violent contortions. The candy failing to appear, he said to the expectant spectator, with an air of great disappointment: 'I believe I've forgotten the rest of it.' Assorted Cvuao The Geo. S. Homer cleared for New York yesterday. She is the first auxiliary steam vessel that ever cleared from the Columbia river, one of the few vessels that clear from this port for New York, takes the first shipment of copper ore that ever went aross the Co lumbia river bar, has a very valuable car go, carries more than tho usual assort ment, and in various other waj-s is dis similar to the ordinary clearances. Her entire cargo is worth about Ju.uuu. Poet Obford Rocks. In answer to a question as to the whereabouts of tho Victoria, Captain Gage of the Bcdu, said yesterday afternoon, I passed where she struck at nine yesterday morning. but couldn't make her out from where I was. The rock on which she struck, is as near as I could judge,about two miles from the southernmost point of Port Orford reef, and bears S W by "W from that reef. It seoms to me as though it was only in heavy weather that the sea breaks over it.1 "That may be one reason why it was not observed before, as in stormy weather a vessel would naturally keep well out m the oaing. Oreook TiuxscoKTrxENTAL. A special dispatch from New York to the Pioneer Press says: It is stated on excellent au thority that, although the matter has not been officially announced by the direc tors, the report that the next Oregon Transcontinental dividend will be passed is probably true. If not passed the divi dend will be reduced. The officers of the company refuse to talk on the subject, which lends weight to th& assertion. It is accepted as a feet on the street, and is in great part tho cause of tuo heavy decline m the Villard proper ties. This has been used by the shorts to extricate themselves from a tight pinch. Tho mystery surrounding the Villard properties is as great as ever, and must do removed, to some extent, at least, be fore any degree of confidence can be re stored. Uregonian. Tho Astoria Social Club. Pursuant to a call in yesterday morn ing's Astoriak, there was a meeting of the Astoria Social Club for the purpose of perfecting organization and appoint ing further officers and committees. Alert Hook and Ladder hall was well filled. A complete constitution and by-laws was submitted to the meetine. and after an interesting debate, was adopted.

WHAT! do you think that JEFF OF THE CHOP HOUSE gives you a meal for nothing and a glass of something to drink? tSot much I" but he gives a better meal and more of it than any place in town for 25 cents. He buys by the wholesale and pays cash. "That settles it." The best Mmce and Pumpkin pies at Astoria Bakery, A Model Itnlldlnc in Every Kenjiwt. Alout i year ago it became manifest to the citizens and taxpayers of district No, 1, that the school facilities of the dis trict were totally inadequate io its grow ing wants. The Astoriak took the ground that the present needs no less than the future demands of the district made necessary a building that would be fully up to the necessities of that portion of our growing city. This iden prevailed, and when the preliminary steps were taken it was with the uudeistanding that the proposed building would le in every way a credit to the city, and in keeping with the educational wants of those who are some dnv to take our places. Plans and specihcations were submit ted to the board ot directors, but owinc to the great difficulty experienced in pro curing material, it was decided that the season was too far advanced to nttempt anything till March or April. According- iy,iasi spring piaus were again cuneu ior, and it was finally decided to have the bnildinc done bv dav s work, that being. on the whole, a sure guarantee that the work would be done m n manner that m sured its permanence. Tho spacious premises on the southwest corner Court and lieiiton streets were selected as me site of the building, and after the nec- essarv !radiu(i had bean done the brick walls of the foundation were laid to a height of eleven feet. To Mr. J. S. V ms- iow was civen xue suiwniiieiiueiice oi construction, and how well and faith fully he has discharged the trust a visit to the building will abundantly prove. As it now stands awaiting the finishing touches, it is the mo.t conspicuous build ing in the city, or in fact, on the Colum bia river, as of right it should be and i3 Tin: liXEST school norsE in the Northwest. Built on one of the hill side terraces among many private resi dences that overlook the business por tion of the city it is the first object on which the eye rests as one approaches the city. It has a frontage of S7 feet 8 inches on Uourt street, and J ieet on Benton street. Entering the building one notices the solidity with which cvery- tbmc is constructed, and the care evinc ed in procuring the newest contrivances for comfort as well as the skill demon strated in putting those appliances in place. The brick basement is divided in two parts. That portion lacing on lyourt street is furthersubdivided by a hall into two well-lighted school rooms, suitable for primary pupils, for recitation rooms, or for an indoor play ground as the needs of the pupils iun- require. The rear half of tho basement is devoted to heating and ventilation. Two large brick furnaces supplied by H. B. Chase furnish by, means of huge tin pipes hot air to the rooms above, and by an ingenious arrangement of registers on the first floor hall, the cold air is carried down into the furnaces, there to be heated and ascend to the different rooms, where further con trivance combines to make the foul air pass out of the rooms through a venti lator, the final passage of the air being through a well constructed ventilator in tho tower. Pnssine to the first floor the architectural beauty of tho stairs, built by h,. and J. A. Martin, is noticeable, and traversing a spacious hall lour well light ed rooms are presented to view. Each room is provided with registers, speaking tubes, ventilators, patent single desks, patent blackboards built mio me wans, spacious anu weu-warmeu closets for lunch baskets, coats, shawls, hats, etc., and has six large windows from which a magnificent view is observ able. The basement rooms arc "55 feet square, the other looms are 23 feet 4 inches by .11 feet, and have nigh and finely finished ceilings. On tho next floor above are four rooms similar in size and finish to those below, furnished m accord ance with tho requirements of tho larger pupils. The northeast room on this floor is intended for the use of the principal and is connected by a row of speaking tube annunciators with even' part ol the building. A GENERAL AIR OI" COMFORT pervades the whole building and it seems tho design ot tho constructors that as lar as surroundings go tho remembrance of the days of study passed therein shall always bo a pleasant one to the rising generation. Ascending from the principal s room the library is the next point of attrac tion. The rear portion of this floor is devoted to Hues and to two iron tanks, The complete system of water pipes that run through the buildincr. nlaced therein bv Rnd dock &. Wheeler, and now ready to be connected with the city mains are here connected with . additional safeguard against fire, as in that event those tanks could Hood the particular locality where the nre might be discovered at extremely short notice. Above this room is the tower, from which floats the American flag, fit emblem of our country's hope and pride as it waves abov6 an American schoolhouse, wherein are taught Amen can ideas. The frame of the building Ls of Oregon fir, furnished by Mr. J. C. Trullinger. the finish and mouldings are of cedar from Hansen Bros, factory, the tin work was done bv E. R. Hawes, the masonry and plastering by Wm. Tarrant, painting bv u. n. btockton. and the work m all its departments reflects credit upon its de signers. Mr. "Wiuslow thinks that he will be able to hand the keys to the directors about New Years; it is tho intention to legin school there next Monday, tho work re maining to be done being little more than finishing up and removing the de bris. To-I)a)V Election. In accordance with section 11 of the city charter, there will be an election in this city to-day for the purpose of elect ing a mayor for the term of two years, and a councilman from the first and one from the second ward for a term of three years each.

At a recent meeting of the Astoria chamber of commerce the following me morial was ordered sent to Congressman George to be laid before the house of rep resentatives ; To the Honorable the Senate and House of Representatives of tlie United States of America in Congress assembled: Your memorialists, the Astoria cham ber ol commerce of Astoria, Oregon, re spectfully represent to your honorable body: That tho very large and rapidly increas ing liusiness oi doiu passenger anu ireigut traffic, by steamships and sailing vessels. between the Columbia river and other ports of the world, demands that the life saving service at the mouth of the Co lumbia river and along the Pacific coast be increased to meet the requirement? of the increasing commerce, and that lull crews bo maintained throughout the en tire year at the more important stations. including the mouth of said Columbia river. That the life-saving station now at the mouth of the Columbia river is manned by a crew during a portion of said j'ear onl3 for the reason that the appropria tions heretofore made by congress for the support and maintenance of the life-saving service have been insufficient to allow of a crew being kept more than six months of each year. Therefore-, vonr memorialists wav thnt your honorable body will make addi tional and adequate appropriations for increasing the number of life-saving sta tions on the Pacific coast, and for the keeping of crews at the more important stations; and as in duty bound your me morialists will ever pray. etc. AUG. C. KINNEY, Attest: Chairman of Committee. E. C. Hold en, Sec'v Astoria Chamber of Commerce. Something for Astoria to Think Or. The secretary read a letter from R. Peterson of Gray's harbor, calling atten tion to the lack of transportation facili ties between Portland and that section, and suggesting that the trade of Pacific and Chenalis counties is well worth tho attempt of merchants. In this connec tion it was stated that a recent incorpor ation proposed to build a narrow gauge railroad from Ilwaco, and to place steam ers on Shoalwater bay and Gray's harbor. Now that steam connection by sea is sus pended for tho winter, the necessity of land service is keenly felt. Members of the board exhibited much interest, and expressed their willingness to assist the corporation by taking stock. Portland Board of Trade.
