Insusange. Thp boaijl and non-board
fire insurance comimniet doing busi
ness on this coast hava -n lat buried the
hatchet (with the handle left convenient
ly sticking out of the ground) an are
just at present smoking the pipe of jmco
or words to hat effect. Sometime ap
the local agents in some city far, far
away, concluded that they might as well
stop giving away their legitimate profits
and so "pooled thoir issues." Tna idea
worked so well that it was rapidly
adopted in other cities, and finally the
magnates of the several companies did
jointly agree npon a "uniform" system
of rates tiat shall henceforth be charged.
A mana, er has been arpo.nted for Ore
gon and Washington, iur. Alfred bull
man, wHose headquarters are and shall
be in Portland. A compact has been
prepared and signed by the accredited rep
resentatives of the several companies in
San Francisco and elsewhere, which im
poses divers pains and penalties for its
violation. No agent of any insurance
company so bound can take any risks not
in strict accordance with the let
ter and spirit of the aforesaid
compact. An exact record of all insur
ance business transacted in Astoria shall
be promptly transmitted to Air. Still-
man in Portland and not to San Fran
cisco as heretofore. Our city has been
rated and ruled and districted in sun
dry pleasant looking volumes, with the
rate to be charged on each building in
the city and upon the contents in such
building. These rates bear some resem
blance to rates heretofore charged, and
are apparently of a character suliiciently
steep to afford a handsome profit on the
business. At all events it is allowed to
the insured to suppose that whatever ad
ditional expense may be incurred bjT the
salary, etc., of the manager will not
come out of the exchequer of the com
panies. The rates run trom 1 to 12 per
cent. While recognizing the usual per
centage in favor of the game, it is mani
fest that insuring property in Astoria is
very profitable to the companies. Were
the city to have a big fire to-morrow the
companies could and doubtless would
draw out considerably ahead of the
game and play on velvet elsewhere with
Quick Time. Attention is directed to
the new ad. of the Fktticood on thi3
page. Her quick time between the chief
cities of Oregon is in itself a splendid
advertisement, and since her late im-
Erovement and renovation that popular

who appreciate speedy transit and cour

A Letter frost Congressman George.
Tbo following letter from Hon. M. C.
George was read at the last meeting of
the Astoria chamber of commerce.
E. C. Holden, Esq., Secretary of Astoria
Chamber of Cemmerce:
I have the honor to acknowledge the
receipt of memorial for a special appro
priation to improve the mouth of the
Columbia river, and take pleasure in
stating that I presented the same to-day
and had it referred to the appropriate
committee, and shall do all in my power
to secure nn appropriation therefor.
As vou are probably aware I have
already introduced a bill appropriating
TOJ,uOO for the commencement of the
permanent improvement of tho mouth of
the Columbia river. And while upon this
subject I take occasion to return my
thanks to your honorable chamber of
commerce for the kind request to the
speaker of th6 house of representatives
asking my reappointment to the commit
tee on commerce. After the preparation
of tne petition, and before it was pre
sented to the speaker, the house had di
vided the jurisdiction of the old commit
ter on commerce, constituting a- new
committee, haiug special authority over
rivers aud uarh'.rd. It was signified to
the speaker that it undoubtedly was your
intention that I should be assigned to
that particular branch of the work of the
committee on commerce. It was urged
that as the former speaker had given to
the Pacific coast two members and the
chairman of the committee oncotnmerce
composed of fifteen members, the new
speaker could do no, less than to allow us
at least two members of theuew commit
tee one from California, as before, and
tne other from Orecon. Of courao, I Was
the only one from our northwest section
that could possibly go upon that commit
tee, and having been upon it, my claim
was all the greater.
While the speaker has personally treat
ed me with regard, by assigning me to
the important committee on Indian
affaire, and to the committee on the re
rival of American ship-building and ship
owning interests, it does not seem that he
has given our section of the country
proper representation upon this important
I no longer occupy the position which
enabled m to more effectually represent
the interests of our common state.
It will be remembered that while I was
a member of the committee on commerce
during the first session of the 47th con
gress, the initiatory steps were taken by
our "Committee that originated the river
and harbor bill, looking toward the com
mencement of a permanent improvement
at the mouth of the Columbia. In the
bill reported was a-clausa appropriating
tne sum of $7,500 for the expenses of an
examination by a competent board of
engineers, of the whole subject matter,
and calling for a report as to the feasibil
ity of the scheme and the cost of the
same. The result, I am happy to state,
was mo3t acceptable. The board of en
gineers was composed of some of the
most skilled and eminent men of that
profession, and the report was indeed
most satisfactory. The foundation hav
ing been laid.the succeeding winter there
was reported from our committee room
in the house, an appropriation of $75,U)J
for the commencement of this great
work, the only work in the whole
of the United States proposed to
be commenced under the provisions of
the river and harbor act of that year.
This bill as reported by our committee
passed the house of representatives and
went to the senate, where it was not act
ed upon for lack of time.
In view of the foregoing, and the great
advantage it gave me as your representa
tive to effectually speak in your behalf,
I regret exceedingly that the speaker of
the bouse of representatives has not des
ignated mo to remain on the committee
having those matters in charge'.
I shall however, do the best I can to
cam- out your wish and purposo, believ
ing as I do, that vthe interests of the
whole of the Pacific northwest will be
promoted by the commencement and suc
cassful completion of the imjrovement
of the moutn of our great water highway.
With highest regards, I have the honor
Yours very respectfully,

tion Father Cesari must occupy. The in
ference from tho above would be that
Gionini was innocent, and that the
reverend father had become so convinced
through the confession of nother. The
laws of the church prohibit the priest
from giving publicity to that which he
has learned through the confessional,
and for him to see a fellow being hanged
when he holds the conclusive proof of
the prisoner's innocence and mother's
guilt, is indeed an unenviable lot."
