A Geneiution Aoo. Yesterday morn
ing the feet of a human skeleton were
noticed extending out from a bank of
earth on the south ."ide of the roadway
near Leinenweber's tannery, where some
excavations have recently been mode for
road repair. While the bones were being
carefuliv nicu&d un and collected, it was
learned by an Astobiak reporter thPt they
were the only remains or an Italian sailor
who came here in an Aincncau bark
commanded by a Capt. Mitchell in 1&3.
Tne vessel anchored opposite "Warner
mill, which was then standing about on
the present siie of the Point Adams
Packing Co.'s premises. He was a Maaon,
and was given as decent sepulture by tho
then residents of the city as was possible
at the time to give. By a curious coin
cidence, Mr. Thomas Goodwin, of Clat
sop, happened along just as the bones
were being exhumed. He was one of the
party who buried the sailor thirty-one
years ago and remembered the circum
stances very well. There were with him,
Capt. Alfred Crosby, Capt. George
Staples, William Spratt, Win. Harrington
and others. Dr. Tuttle took charge of the
As You Please. The Astobiah is re
sponsible for the assertion that there are
newspapers in the United States pub
lished in nineteen languages; few in real
good English. Among that numbc-r are
English, German, French, Spanish,
Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Finnish,
Hollandish (low Dutch), Italian, Welsh,
Irish, Bohemian, Portuguese, Polish, He
brew, Chinese, Cherokee and Icelandic.

Geand Abmv Challenge. The Win
field Scott Post, G. A. It., of Tonawanda,
N. Y., ha8 challenged all posts and sub
posts to a grand chsmpion bcan-eatiug
tournament, to be held there on the 13th
of April. The general plan will be to
have several heats of ten minutes each,
with an intermission between each to
allow the knives and forks to cool off.
The beans will be furnished by yeight.
Besides the badge, a number of otuer
prizes will be awarded as follews: To
the most graceful eater, a box of cigars;
the most awkwjrd, u handsome pipe; the
smallest eater, a cigar-holder; the fast
est, a handsome drmking-cup; tho slow
est, a leather medal.
She Kkew. A teacher in one of the
district schools proved that it may be
embarrassing to use one's own self as an
illustration. She was hearing a class in
spelling and defining words. The word
"orphan" had been correctly spelled, but
none of the class seemed to know its
meaning. After asking oiieor two of them
fihe said, enceuragingly: "Now, try again.
I am an orphan. Now, can't some of you
guesa what it means?' Tho look
upon their faces remained, until one of
the duller scholars raised his hand, and
said, with no intention of being saucy:
"It's same one who wants to get married
and can't.''
Telephone. At 5:15 p. m., yesterday
the telephone rang in The Astobiak
office for the first time in Astoria and
messages were transmitted to and from
the central office in Kinney's building.
On to-day's steamer a man arrives who
will take'eharge of the office and attend to
its demands. The service is rather costly,
but will be of great convenience to all who
ose it. Mr. Lawrence, the efficient super
intendent, has taken considerable trouble
in seouring absolute accuracy in all the
details and intends to put the lines in
exact and satisfactory working order be
fore taking his departure.
Emebson's Minstbels. On several oc
casions there has been an effort to in
duce Emerson's MinBtrels to come to
Oregon, but the continued success they
have achieved at their Standard Theater
in San Francisoo has occasioned the de
ferring of their trip. However, they will
appear at Occidental Hall tips evening
in all their mirthful strength and pris
tine beauty and will give the best min
strel performance of any company in the
School Dibectob3. Considerable com
ment is made in Eastern Oregon upon
the fact that at a recent school election
In Union county a woman was elected
school director. That's nothing there
are three women in Clatsop oounty who
have been elected as school directors and
make good officers too. Two of them
are married, and one is a single lady.
Lose3 Its Appobtioxment. From Mr.
H. Sloop, county superintendent of pub
lic instruction, it is learned that district
No. 6, comprising Ft. Stevens and vicin
ity, will lose its apportionment of school
mony for this year by reason of the neg
last or refusal of the proper officer to
make report as required bylaw.

ChUdn-7u Him Dlmmltt's Cough
I It So SondnaU-d In the Bend."
By last evtning'H mail Sheriff Twom-
j bly received Mime formidable documents
1 and a subycuur. in the cane wherein The
' Dundee Moitgage and Trust Investment
Cmipany, limited." is ihe plaintiff, and
School District N. 1. et al., are'defend-
j ants. The case is now ponding in the
Circuit Court, and comes up for nd-
judication next May. The complaint nl-
i lege, that the plaintiff is a foreign cor
poration with its office at Dundee, Scot Scet
land: Hint its business is loaning money
on real estate security in the comities of
Oregen: that for tho use of tnch money
loaned it takes notes secured by mort
gages, and that such notes and mort
gages are promptly sent to Dundee where
they are held till paid. That further the
Dundee company has borrowed a large
sum of money in'Great Britain and that
theao Oregon" securities are held as col
lateral for such loan, and that the mort
gage tax law tends to depreciate the alue
of the nforesaid collaterals. The com
plaint $o alleges that sixteen sheriffs of
the commonwealth of Oregon are now
rmed with warrants to collect taxes
flora the Dundee company, and the
aforesaid sheriffs do threaten to sell the
mortgages in question for taxes unless
tne taxes be paid, and that they don't
want to pay them, because they don't
tniuk they ought to, and for came allege
that the mortgage tax law is void, in
valid, of no effect, and altogether cultus,
because it was never legally passed by
tho Webfoot legislature, inasmuch as
the bill should have originated in the
house instead of the senate, ac
cording to section 18, of article 4, of
the state constitution for such cases
made and provided. And for further
cause tho complainant's do aver that the
bill was not read by sections on three
several days, and that the bill chauge-
the conditions under which tho Dundee
capitalists had made previous loans, and
that it thereby impairs their contracts,
and that it tries to tax mortgages anu
notes that are held in Scotland, and that
it is unconstitutional and inn't right, and
hurts their business and oughtn't to be,
and they want an injunction against
Mack Twombly, or anyone else named in
tho cjmplaint, collecting any taxes in
Oregon from the aforesaid Dundee cap
italists, and that all these sixteen sheriffs
be forever enjoined and prohibited and
prevented and estopped and stayed, and
all the rest of it, from collecting or pro
ceeding to collect the taxes that are
assessed upon the mortgages they hold in
the various counties of our beloved state.
A perusal of their bill of complaint
shows that the Dundee people are loaning
a good deal of money to Oregonians. In
Multnomah oounty they are taxed upon
mortgagos representing 209,000.00; in
Marion county, $109,1) 19.00; in Polk
county, $3o,20.i.OO; in Lane county, S55,
237.00, and so on through tho list.

A Jurj Census.
Tho Oregon City Courier, writing of a
cow case, in which the jury failed to
agree, adds: The heifer has become a
minor matter. To keep their eyes open
during the night's siege, the jurymen
amused themselves with inquiring into
each other's family relations, etc. They
furnish the following quaint census re
port on the cow case. The ten jurymen
are all farmers and unanimous in opposi
tion to woman suffrage:

The steamer Clatsop Chief has been
meeting with rather bad lucK lately. A
week ago last Thursday, while towing a
barge up the Lewis river, she ran upon a
snag and sunk. She was raised and pro
ceeded on her journey. Last Wednesday,
however, on her return from Portland,
she ran upon the same snag and again
sunk, where she still remains.
When the bark Lizzie Marshall was
wrecked on the Vancouver shore a few
weeks since, the steamer Ooliah was in
Neah bay. On hearing of the danger oi
the vessel and crew, Capt. Dnscoll, of
that steamer, ordered the engineer, wuost
name is Hoyle, to get up steam on tut
vessel so that lie could go to the bark'
assistance. The engineer, however, in u
very cowardly manner refusad to obe
orders, claiming that the weather was too
rougL aud that he "thought more of his
little ufe than all the whole world." The
Times thinks that if the Goliah had gone
to tue Marshall's aid, that vessel woulu
havo been saved. The distance from the
scene of the wrtok was short, and the
stesincr could have goue there inside ol
two hours. An investigation of the action
of the cowardly engineer is now going on
in Seattle before thu board of steamboat
inspectors, and it is thought his license
will be taken from him. It is hoped
samething of that kind will be done, as
th6 loss of the essel and tho drowning ot
one of her crew may be blamed to his
