It is among the many other rumors
flying around that the next breeze that

"What was almost a drowning accident
occurred near the Columbia Canning
company's net racks last Tuesday night,
a man having walked oTerboard. Lin
guist, his companion, tried to save him
but had it not been for the prompt assist
ance of the watchman both men would
probably have been drowned, they for
tunately escaped with no worse hurt than
a thorough soaking.
WHY SOT I
Thero is a little proposition to raise the
salary of the police judge to $90 0
month. It came before the council last
Tuesday and will appear again next
Tuesday. Why stop at $03? Why not
make it the oven hundred? It takes at
least an hour every week day, and time
is-money. The salary of the cily attor
ney has" been raised; the salary of the
auditor and clerk lias been raised; the
treasury is bursting with money, so are
the rotten planks and cess-pools along
the streets with filth; raise all the sala
ries. It is manifest injustice that the
street superintendent's salary has not
been raised, and everyone knows that the
position of councilman i exceedingly
onerous and deserving of liberal com
pensation. Raise tho salary of m-cry
salaried officer in tho city and let those
who have no salary be granted a good
round sum forthwith. If the citizens or
their children sicken or die from inatten
tion to the most necessary demands of
common decency or municipal health,
what of il? What i tho city treasury
for anyway? A spasm of economy may
actuate other departments, but let the
good work of raising salaries continue.
The city taxes are not half high enough
now. An extra one per cent judiciously
levied may result in enough additional
ooming in to enable every one that scrubs
Bpittoon to draw a pood fat wage. If
fever comes and visitors from tho inte
rior hasten away with their handker
chiefs to their noses, what of it? "Tho
earth belongs to the saints of the Lord;
wa are the saints of tho Lord."

DB0W.NI3G OF JOHX nOWLETT.
A Terdlct of Accidental Death KemWred
the Cnroner'fc Jorj.
Last Sundwy John Howlett, a well
known mechanic, came down from Port
land on the Fleetwood to superintend the
construction of tho now Gray's harbor
steamer to be built by the Astoria and
Coast Transportation company. Ho was
around town on Monday and Tuesday
and about ten o'clock Tuo.duy night
came down from his room in the Parker
house and said that lit was to affected
by asthma, from which he has long been
a sufferer, that he couldn't breathe. He
went out, and about half-past ono a
glash and a cry for help was heard by
ulcer Steabb, apparently coming from
the piling in the rear "of the I. X. L.
Every attempt was made to render assist
ance but upon reaching the spot he could
not be seen.
About half-past nine yesterday morn
ing his Iifele33 remains were found on
the beach under the Olympic saloon.
He was conveyed to the morgue and on
inquest held, the jury finding "that the
deceased was named John Mowlett and
was a native of Maine, and aged about
45; that he came to his death on the 23d
day of April in this county, by drowning,
havins been found in the Columbia
river, city of Astoria, at or near Hustler's
dock, and that we, the jury, nnd that the
deceased came to his death by accidental
Deceased was unmarried, and, besidb
his mother, who lives in Marshfleld, Coos
county, and who was immediately ap
prised by telegraph 01 tho sad event, he
is not known to have had any other rela
tives on this coast. Th remains will be
sent to Portland this morning for inter
ment. .NW fork. Fire Department.
Fow persons know to whut physical
perfection the men of tho New Vork fire
department havo attained by constant
exercise; their drill and even their games
tend to that end. In each engine house
of the city the men never use the Btairs
to go down from one flight to another.
A shining brass rod runs through a hatch
way from the third, or dormitory, floor
ty the ground, and the men always slide
down this rod in order to gain u second
or two in getting off to a fire. There is a
standing reward of $100 offered for any
improvement which shall lessen the nec
essary time in getting off to a iiro by one
second; the man who can devise u plan
to save five seconds in the maneuver gets
$500. Until recently there were improve
ments made every few months, but now
the system is so perfect that tho depart
ment feels that it has done all that can
be done to get to fires in a hurry and
work efficiently when there. The stale
authorities must forbid the erection of
tinder boxes and then the city will be
pretty safe. The devices for saving frac
tions of socouds iu our crack engine
houses are little short of magical. In
the John street Btuliou the same electric
current which gives the abirra of u tire
sets the Wholo establishment iu motion
automatically. Tho current of electricity
which causes the gong to strike also re
leases a weight which starts n remarkable
series of movements. It strikes u brass
lever that removes another catch, and
tlfon the- arm of a long brass lover is
pulled down by a heavy weight. When
tho long lever goes down it pulls three
wires which run into thieo horse stalls,
two on 0110 side of the room and ono on
the ot!u.r. It opens a circuit through
numerous incandescent " lamps, lighting
up the rvhole buildiug from lop to bot
tom like day. It turns oyer n little piece
of wood that instantly stops th& ticking
of little wooden -ead clock. The cur
rent of electricity tlirt fim Marts tho
little weight corae's from some fire-alarm
box in the fire alarm district to which
this engiuo is assigned. The same
cunent then pastn through an
other magnet in the big case
above tha gong, und releases for short
intervals u heavy weight, which throws
the hammer against the gong once for
each pulsation, and thus cjimls out the
numler of strokes indicating the box
from which the alarm was sent. The
pulling of the three wiros leading to the
three stalls, removes three pins that
fastened three halters. Whoii these
pins are withdrawn tho halters unreove
through tho rings on the bits of the threo
horhes. and the animals are at liberty.
Two of them are trained to run to their
places before the engine nnd under the
hanging harness, and tho other stops
when ho is beneath the humess of the
tender, which is in the rear of tho room.
Some flgmes as to the time taken in.
getting to a fire may be of interest in
this connection as showing how the time
has been gradually decreased. Accord
ing to tho official reports of the firo de
partment, the average time taken in all
the engine houses to get reedy, counting
from the second the clock was stopped
by the alarm till the engiuq dashed clear
of the door, was as follews: In 1877 it re
quired 13.0J seconds, or about one-fifth
of a minute; in 1878 it was 10.26 seconds;
in 1879 it was 9.54 seconds; in 1880 it was
8.21 seconds, and for the last year the
John-street engine, perhaps the swiftest
of all, has never exceeded five seconds,
and has done the work in 3.25 seconds. It
is by such spaed that six engines reached
the St. George's flats on Monday within
seven minutes of the time the alarm was
sent out, the first one getting there in
side of four minutes. A1 Y. Letter.
