A meeting was held in Mayor Hume's
office yesterday afternoon to take into
consideration the formation of a joint
stock company to build a staamer to jily
between here and Gray's harbor, and
transact a general freight and passenger
business between the two ports.
It was decided to incorporate, the arti
cles of incorporation to be substantially
"We, the undersigned, being desirous of
forming a corporate body for the purpose
hereinafter stated, to be incorporated
under the laws of Oregon governing the
same, do certify: First That the cor
porate name of the company shall be
The Astoria and Coast Transportation
company.' Second The object for which
the company is formed is to build and
complete a steamboat or steamboats or
other vessels, or for the purchase or sale
of any craft the company may desire,
and for the building of docks and ware
houses, or acquiring the same by pur
chase. AIbo for the purpose of carrying
passengers and freight, and for towing or
any other legitimate business usual in
the line of steam boating, on the waters of
the Columbia river from its mouth to
Portland, Oregon, and of the Pacific
ocean from Astoria to San Franoisco, Cal.,
to the south, and from Astoria, Oregon,
to Sitka, Alaska, on the north.
"The amount of the capital stock of
the company shall be $25,003, divided
into 250 shares, of the par value of $100
each, with liberty to increase the same
whenever it may bo deemed necessary or
desirable so to do.
The duration of the company shall bo
fifty years. The number of directors of
said company shall be five, and the prin
cipal place of business shall be Astoria,
Oregon." Messrs. Hume, Hustler, Cooper,
Fisher and tiers are the incorporators.
Yesterday afternoon 14,000 of the re
quired amount was subscribed by those
gentlemen. The Washingtonian Pack
ing Company will take $509, and the
Aberdeen Packing Company $1,030. Mr.
Hume goes to Gray's harbor to-morrow
to give residents there an opportunity to
subscribe, as it is thought but just to
give that end of the route an opporfun
lty to own some of the stock.
"In reference to this enterprise it is but
necessary to append the following from
the Chehalis Vidette of January 3L
Speaking of the project., that paper says:
"Mr. Hume proposes, provided he can be
assured of the carrying trade between
here and Portland, to build a steamer
especially for the route, he hav
ing personal interests in the valley,
to warrant him in doing this, if he can
get the freightage of this section in ad
dition to his own business. Should he
build this vessel she will bo of ample di
mensions, and in every respect quaified
for the wants of the trade, and she would
also be prepared to make trip3 whenever
business - demanded. Mr. Hume is a
business man of known standing,
and if he identifies himself with
this enterprise, all interested in it may
feel assured that it will prove a success.
He will be here in about two weeks for
the purpose of, if possible, closing the
arrangements for putting on the steamer,
and we feel confident that our people will
not fail to favorably meet, and univers
ally enaorse nis proposition, ior it la en
tirely worthy of the most favorable re
ceDtion." The enterprise starts under the most
favorable auspices and will doubtless
prove a success. It is simply a question
who secures the trade, Portland, or As
toria; as usual our seaport city is ahead.

Yesterday's Meeting of Cannerjmen.
Pursuant to call a meeting of the Co
lumbia river cannerymen was held in the
court house yesterday morning. The
meeting was called to order by J. W
Hume, and on motion C.Lsinsnweberwas
elected chairman, and S. D. Adair secre
tary. Twenty-three canneries out of thirty
seven had representatives present, and
after some desultory discussion the meet
ing adjourned to 7 o'clock p. m.
Upon reassembling about the same
number app2ared. The subject of the
meeting was the proposed reduction of
the number of boat3 to ba run on the
river during the coming season. The
di?oxssion took a wide range, and indi
cated a variety of opinion on the part of
those present. It was finally decided
that all the cmnerymen allow their indi
vidual interests to be their guide in de
termining the extent of the proposed re
duction, and the meeting adjourned sine
die. It seems to bo the general under
standing that about two-thirds of the
number run last year will ba pat in the
water this season. This would plaoe the
number at 1000, more or less.

SPEED OF THE OLD CLIPPERS.
fiTn,. T ,
The Quickest Vovage to China,' "The
Contest of the Clippers," "Great Pas
sago from San Francisco," "Bace Around
the Wond." Tbe clipper ship Surprise,
built in East Boston by Mr. Hall, and
owned by A. A. Low & Tiro., having
sailed to San Francisco in Ob" days then
the shortest time on record(W. H. Aspiu
wall's Sea Witch had run the course in
97 days) a San Francis-co journal said:
"Ono'of our most distinguished mer
chants made a bet witn a friend some
weeks since that the Surprise would
make the passage in 9G days just the
time she has consumed to a day. Yes
terday morning, full of confidence, he
mounted his old nag and rode over to
the north beach to get the first glimpse
of the looked-for clipper. The fog, how
ever, was rsther thick outside, and after
looking twhile he turned back to town,
but hud not arrived at his cjuutiug-rojm
bsforehe he.ird that the Surprise had
pas-ou the Golden G.ite,uud by 11 o'clock
dp!. Dumaresq was in his old friend's
counting-room on San.-;ouic street. She
had brou-ht 1,830 tons of cargo, which
may be estimated at a value of 200,0J0.
Her manifest is 25 feet long." Her
greatest run was 231 miles in 21 hours,
and she reefed her topsails but twice dur
ing the voyage of 10,303 miles. She soon
left San Francisco for London, by way of
Canton, and on reaching t'iP English cap
ital her receipts for fre'ghts hd3 entirely
paid her co-t "jii running expanses, ba
.i:u!8 ueiiui;- L-r..iiurri a clear pront of
7.U J. -it Canton her freight for Lon
don .?as engaged at 6 a ton, while the
English ships were taking freight at J2.1
and 1 a ton; and this was tne second
season that the preference had been given
to American snips at advanced rates,
their shorter passages enabling shippers
to receive prompt returns from their in
vestments; to save interest and to secure
n early market. "If ships," said a Cal
ifornia'nowspaper, "can bo built to make
such trips as this, steamers for long.pas
sages wi:l be ut a discount. California
ha.s done much tovird the com
mencement of u new era in ship-building
wnen tne heavy, clumsy models of past
days have givon uway to the new and
beautiful one of the Surprise and others
of the same build." "The Californians, '
said a New York newspaper, "are in
ecstacies over our clipper ships, which
come and depart like so many "winged
Pega&uses. T'nen? aw now on tha way to
the Pacific, and ready to start for that
portion of the world, as splendid vessels
as tho eye ever rested upon, and com
manded by men whose knowledge of
their profession cannot be excelled, and
each .determined to do his utmost to be
first in this clipper contest."
Tho whole country, indeed, was stirred
by the beauty, the spaed and the trumplis
of these American clippers. The Houqua.
Capt. Daniel McKenzie, built by Brown
fc Bell for A. A. Low fc Brov made the
trip from Shanghai to New lork in 18j0
in t8 da3'S, then the shortest ever made
between these ports. The Samuel Hus
sell, Captain N. B. Palmer, owned by the
same firm, sailed in one day in 1851, on
her voyage horns from Whampoa, China,
318 miiei, or 1S miles an hour a speed
then greater than had been obtained by
any ocsan steamer. For thirty days in
succession, from the 8th of November to
the 7th of December, she averaged 22o
mile.j a day, covering in that period G,
72J miles, or one-half the distance be
tween China and New York. On another
occasion, while going to Canton, she
sailed 323 miles in one day "Now sir,"
wrote one of her skippers, 'I humbly sub
mit if that is not a feat to boast of if
that Is not an achievement to entitle a
ship to be classed among clippers?" On
her return voyage she had the honor oi
reporting in New York the news of her
own arrival at Canton. Tho Flying Cloud,
1,782 tons, built by Donald McKay oi
East Boston, commanded by Captain
Josiah P. Creasy, of Marblehead, went in
1851 to San Francisco from New York m
84 days tho fastest trip ever mado by a
sailing vesiel, and 12 days shorter than
that of the Swrprise. Lieut. Maury, of the
United States naval observatory at Wash
ington, reported that the greatest
distance "ever performed from noon to
noon on the ocean was 433 statue miles
by the clipper ship Flying Cloud in her
celebrated passage of 81 days from Ner
xor to San Francisco, which yet stands
unequalled." The Northern Light ot
Boston left San Franciso on the 13th of
M iy, 1853, and reached Boston the 29th
of 5iay following, thus sailing more than
lG.OOJ miles in 77 days, an average of
over 200 miles a day. Splendid is the
record of the Sovereign of the Sjos, com
manded by Capt. L. McKay, and built by
his brother, Donald McKay. Tuis noble
vessel left New York for San Francisco
in August, 1851, with freight, for carry
ing which she would receive $84,000 a
marvelous sum to-day a barrel of flour
on her arrival selling for 44; and when
off Valparaiso in a storm was dismasted,
everything above the mastheads of her
fore and mainmasts being carried awuy.
In fourteen days sue was rigged at sea,
and proceeding on her way to California,
reached her destination in 102 days from
New York, in spite of the aecident and
detention the best passage evor made at.
that season of the year. The picture of
tho Sovereign of Uie bias in her disman
tled condition, which has been engraved
for this article, was sketched at the time
by one of her passengers, a clever boy of
eight years, and afterwards "toccaed up"
bv an artist, and is pronounced by Capt.
MjKay to be an accurate an J faithful
delineation. Seventy feet of her fore
mast and mainmast are gone, and also
four sails on each mast. Having dis
charged her cargo, the clipper sailed for
Honolulu, and loaded with oil for New
York, which she reached in 82 days a
pas3ag3 never equalled, .tor lu.OJO
ui.les she sailed without wearing or tack
ing, and in ten days she made 300
miles. Loading again for Liverpool, she
left on a Saturday, the 13th of June, 1852.
On Sunday, the iCtb, she was becalmed
on the banks of New Foundland; but at
midnight a breeze sprung up, and on the
following Saturday at 5 o'clock v. m. she
dropped anchor in the Mersey another
passage never equalled, bhe had
sailed from the Banks to Liverpool
in five days and a half; and from New
xork to Liverpool in the unprecedented
time of 13 days and 19 hours. One dav
she sailed 340 miles; on the same day the
Cunard steamer Canada, which had left
Boston almost simultaneously with the
Sovereign of the Seas, made only 3J6
miles. To-day, thirty years afterward, it
is enlivening to read in the newspapers of
that time the editorial articles on the
splendid performances of that splendid
ship. But her story is not told yet. On
the 10th of May, 1853, Lieut. M. F.
Maury reported to James C. Dobbin, sec
retary of the navy, that the clinDer shiD
Sovereign of the Seas, 2,421 tons, on a voy
age from San Francisco, had made "the
enormous run of 6,245 miles" in 22 days,
a daily uverage of 283.9 miles, and that
tho greatsst d.stauce traversed from noon
one day to the noon of tho next day was
419 miles. After his illustrious pzrform
ance on the ocean, Capt. McKay is now
a shipping merchant in South street, New
York city. His brother, Donald Mciay,
the builder, died sometime since in Bos
ton, ror tne meritorious wort oi rigging
nraiso, Capt. McKay was presented by
Walter B. Jone3, President of the At

behalf of the underwriters, with a mas

Those Xanghtj Men.
A woman always wants to be a man.
Tho absolute strain of having to keep
pure and respectable is so great on a nipn
that he never dreams of wanting to bo a
woman. There would bo a nico row in
the world if a man had to stand the same
judgment as a woman, and suffer the
same penalties fcr offenses against social
rules. And yet I believe that if women
had all the privileges of men they would
decline to make use of one-half of them.
If their curiosity were satisfied once their
taste would rise against indulgence. I
knew a lady who had a very great curi
osity to Eee a prize-fight. She had an
opportunity once in the country to se& a
little bit from safe cover. She stood ex
actly live inindtes of tho preliminary and
when the first blow was struck sne said
"lake me home. If that is what men
like I don't want to be a :mia.
After all, what Is it all this illicit en
joyment which men talk about? It is
turee-fourths sham. A man goes off to a
littl dinner at a restaurant with some
jovial companions, lie can huvo the
same dinner with his wife or his lady
friends. He dnnks wme and indulges in
conversation that he never reoalis, that
has no pleasure whatever. He sometimes
gets drunk and maKtS an ass of himself.
I'ue sober people have lots of fun with
him. He goes home m a disgraceful con
dition, wakes ap next morning with a
"head" on him, swaars at himself for
having made a beast of himself, Is
haunted for a week with vague fears of
what he may have done, finds that he has
an enormous bill to pay, and having for
gotten everything that occurred after the
soup, loses his conscience and deftnds
himself to his friends by decmring tnut
he had a rood timo. All that he has
really enjoyed, all that he knows any
tuing about, all that he himself believes
creditab.e, he might have had at his own
dinner-table in company with his wife
and his friends. And he kicks because
his wife is a little bud-tempered ovor hav
ing to get up and receive him in a limp
bundle from a hackman, and put him to
bed in the middle of tho nigut.
I saw one evening a company of roys
terers trying to takd one of taeir number,
hopelessly drunk, hoaw.. They started,
six of them, to curry hiui down stairs.
He was wriggiiug and ho finally worked
nimsolf out of his coat. He full on the
atairs, but they went on and carried tho
coat, with enormous effoit, down half u
dozen steps before they had found out
taut they had left the man behind. At
lust they got to the hack that stood at
the door. How to get him in was the
question. A happy tnought struck them.
Une went rouno and opened the door on
tho street side and tried to drag him in.
He would not go. Tnen they closed that
door and two oi them got into the hack,
tainking he would follow on their invita
tion t j enter. He staggered to his feet,
shook hands with tuem, said "Good
night," shut tho door, waved his hand to
the driver with a drunken "All ri," and
then fell down in a heap on the sidewalk.
He said next day he had had a good
time, but he did not remember uuytning
later than 8 o'cloct, and this was 2 o'clock
in the morning. I don't believe any
woman seriously wants to have that kind
of privilege. There is simp.y an awful
lot of humbug in this good-nine business.
in most coses it shows what a low state
a man's self-respect has got into and
gives the woman an opportunity to de
spise men, which they would be oetter to
exerj.se a lit .e mjra frojiy. Temp&r, .a
uij.ii doss not care for. it gives nim a
reasonable excuse for his conduct and is
a kind ot expiation of his sins. But con
tempt few men can endure, and silent
contempt is the most potent power a
woman has. A woman always lets out
ner feelings and the man knows exactly
where he stands. The quiet woman is
always the master of the hous3.
There :s an impression about that the
club is a pmce of wild fun and excite
ment. Women are always crazy to know
.v-iiat men do in the c.uu, e ipaj lally in
thb evenings. I will tell them. A bach
elor makes his club his place for reading,
writing and generally amusing himseif.
He goes up the.-e when he has nothing to
do. Ho nuds four people ph y.ng whist,
tnree at anothei table playing soma other
'i,me. He walks through tLe rooms, sits
down in an oasy-chair, takes up a paper,
throws it down, tries another with no
more enjoyable result, yawns, swears to
mmself, looks out :it the window, wonders
what he will do with himself, looks at hi6
watch, wishes to hsaven he had some
agreeable circle of home life to go into,
and after losing himself for an hour,
goes home to his room and goes to bed.
To tho married man the main use of a
club in the ovenings is to enable him to
bore himself away from his faniLy Wi.en
ho really goes there. Tuero is a fascina
tion to some men in having their drinks
brought to them and in signing cards or
paying for them, and cubs aro full of
that f ascinution. Tnere are other men
who can fill up quietly at tho club, and
no man cares about getting drunk at
home. But although sometimes a man
may meet with a merry party and have
a good deal of fun, tho best fun of a club
can bi indulged in at home by drawing
around you the friends who are congen
ial, and it costs a great deal less money.
