English Salmon Market.
Th demand this week hag run princi
pally on salmon, of which the first cargo
of the new season's pack from Astoria is
clo3e at hand, though it will of course
be some days before any sales of moment
will be effected in this shipment. In
landed parcels of Columbia river, how
ever, a pretty good business has been
done, partly for export to Australia, and
favorite marks have brought satisfactory
prices, say 27s to 28s per case, other and
inferior qualities selling less readily at
24s to 26s. "We hear of samples of "machine-filled"
tins of salmon being offered
from Liverpool for examination and ap-
Sroval in the London market, but they
o not answer the requirements of the
trade, the fibre of the fish being soft and
pulpy, instead of coming apart in un
broken flakes, and distinctly proves the
superiority of the hand-packed process
to that performed by machine. London

Chadwell, Feb. 9, 18S4.
It was my good fortune to be present
last night at a party given by Mr. and
Mrs. D. J. Ingalls, at their residence on
the Lewis and Clark river it being the
occasion of the closing of the winter
term of school. Quite a numerous 00m
.pany was present, considering the in
ctemanoy of the weather, and dancing
was kept up until the early morning
hours. Good rcusc was furnished by
,Krs. Ingalls and Miss Mary Harder at
the organ, by Mr. Ingalls upon the banjo,
by "Messrs. Miller and Bartell upon the
acoordeon and by Mr. Davidson upon the
flute. The supper was the chief feature
of the occasion, and showed Mrs. In
galls to be complete mistreas of the art
of. New England pastry cooking. Fun
presided at the bead of the table. Frolic
at 'the foot, and midway between sat
Yorick, who "kept the table in a roar."
The company regretted the absence of
Mrs. Anderson and Mrs. Hartill, who
would have contributed so much to the
"inioyment of the evening the one de
tained at home by sickness in the fam
ily, and the other by the storm. "When

The cold which circled down upon us
from the east after tho unusual snow fall
of Thursday and Fridav. reached its low
est degree yesterday morning. Men who'
are orainaruy gooa naturea were out of
all humor upon arising and finding every
thing frozen up. Discomfort of all kinds
was occasioned and the forenoon was oc
cupied mainly in thawing out. In many
localities the water pipes burst, and the
consequent annoyance is considerable.
The usual weather that we all so much
enjoy renders us poorly prepared for
such an arctic wave as that which has
rolled down upon us from the frosty
regions to the east. At davbreak vaster-
day morning the thermometer registered
n aegrees, the lowest temperature in
Astoria for 3 oars, the dry snow filled
with frost creaked beneath the tread, the
sidewalks were a glare of ice, long icicles
hung pendent from the eves of tho
houses, and no one was really happy ex
cept plumbers, tinners and men with
leisure to enjoy the sleigh ridine. No
city in the United States affords better
facilities in the way of thoroughfares on
which to enjoy sleigh riding, for the
slightest covering of snow suffices to
make a smooth track.
The S. O. Heed encountered broken ice
on her upward way from Tongue Point
to Knappa, and upon reaching Ealama
had to lie to for repairs to her sheath

get through yesterday evening, shows on
her bow and keel signs of the rough
pounding she got on her way down. As
there will be no ocean steamers to break
a track to day it is doubtful if tho Heed
will .get down this evening. The Colum
bia got in yesterday morning and re
ports a frigid trip all the way from San
Francisco. "Water froze in tha state

of passengers were heartily glad to get

We hear of a yonng man, or at least
one just in life's prime, who by hard
work in his profession made a good start,
say $10,00J or $12,000, and having made
a really shrewd investment in Albina he
sold out in the nick of time and realized
nearly $50,030, which he put into Oregon
and Transcontinental and lost, not only
all his speculative gains but his profes
sional earnings, the result of a dozen
years of hard labor. The man who
found himself on the road to fortune
suddenly saw his lucky speculation dis
appear in thin air. He grieved over it
until his mind gave away and he is
watched now by keepers. Here is a strik
ing illustration of the unhealthiness of
making money too easy. Money made
or earned in the regular way gives more
satisfaction and is more apt to last Wil
Jay Gould is the master-spirit of the
Short Line. As soon as it became ap
parent that there was a probability of
the completion of the Northern Pacific,
he commenced throwing out lines to pro
tect the northwest traffic of the Union
Pacific He gained control of the Mor
mon lines and extended the Utah and
Northern into Montana, thus heading off
the Northern Pacific into that territory.
In 1881 he conceived the idea of the
Oregon Short Line, which is almost on a
bee-line from Granger to the Pacific
coast. When the Short Line was started
Viilard pushed out the Baker City branch
to meet it, and gaining possession of a
narrow pass in Burnt river canyon he
attempted to, and actually did, check
mate Gould. Jay Gould's intention was,
and is, to get to tide water, and he will
not stop until he accomplishes this ob
ject. Nez Perce News.
The present cold snap has brought out
a multitude of beggars, large and small.
They look so cold and hungry, and gen
erally miserable, that it is not easy for
one with a spark of pity in his breast to
resist their appeals. The little girl
whose mother is sick, has no fire or medi
cine, appeals very piteously these cold
mornings. The boy who begs just a
nickle to get something to eat, or the
man who needs just two bits to pay for a
lodging, may be passed by when the
night is warm, but now, when the wind
cuts like a razor, as one muffled to the
throat takes the walk, at the end of
which he discerns a warm glow of fire
and attending comforts, he does not ask
in vain. Sometimes we give him tho two
bits, with the thought that maybe the
whisky will do him no harm on such a
night, after all. All of them have "hard
times" and cold weather to back up their
appeals, and, they do not leave empty
We have all tho natural resources of a
rich country, and by means of labor and
economy any one can make a livelihood
and, in time' acquire a competence. But
there is a certain class of men who hold
as their gospel that the world owes them
a living, and to be orthodox they never
consider themselves indebted to society
for anything they receive. To such, tho
Pacific Northwest is not a desirable loca
tion. It will be better for them and for
us that they do not come to Oregon. We
hpve room only for workers who expect
by habits of industry to help themselves,
and in so doing aid in developing the
country. We have rich, unoccupied lands
for the agriculurist, and opportunities for
mechanics and artisans. To men of cap
ital, no place offers better inducements
than the Pacific Northwest. Wo have
the resources of an empire, and only need
development to take the rank that na
ture has destined we should occupy.
Among our population wo number some
of the .sturdiest toilors, and we desire no
commingling with a worthless element.
