There is a statute in the state ordin

A party of ladies and gentlemen had a
?leasant excursion on the Tom Morris to

There is considerable old web reported
in the river, and it is thought that by
July 1st new nets will be at a premium.
Captain J. M. Olsen, formerly bar pilot,
will run the steamer union on her regu
lar Deep river and Grayrs river trips this
season.
The usual denials regarding "Knights
of the Sun" and P. O. S. A. are already
being made. Religion and politic? don't
mix very well.
A large number of Astoria's citizens
went to Fort Canby yesterday to render
the last sad tribute of respect to the late
Mrs. Woodruff.
The Dependent announced sixty days
ago that grass would grow in the streets
of Astoria. It is certainly doing all it
can to bring about suoh a result.
The ladies of the M. E. church will
give an ice cream sociaole in tne parlors
of the 11. E. church on Thursday evening,
May 15, 18W. All are cordially invited
to attend.
What has the second cil lit the state
done that it should be afflicted with such
jk concern as the Dependent, that is doing
"its little best and worst to give the place
a black eye?
"I wonder if theso Astoriuns think I
am damphool enough to pay out money
for labor when I can get stereotypes in
San Francisco for one-twentieth of what
honest composition would cost me?"
Mr. J. C. Trullinger, proprietor of tha
West Shore Lumber Mills, advertises the
prices at which ho will supply lumber,
bozfs, mouldings, etc., after this date.
On every side are buildings in all stages
of completion and trucks and wagons are
busy hauling lumber for waiting carpen
ters. The dullness that affects our sister
cities touches lightly on this community.
Every man has a right to earn a living
.the best way he can, but he is expeoted
to give something in return for the
monev he takes. This is a business
prinoiple universally recognized the
world over.
- The State Grange will meet at Salem
on the 27th inst. Arrangements have
been made with transportation lines for
reduced fare. Full fare will bo paid in
earning, and reduotion on return of 40
per -cent, oa round trip.
To cave $ 80 or $109 a week in wages
tha Dependent tacitly proolaim3 that As
toria is so poverty-stricken that a regular
newspaper conducted on business princi
' pies cannot live. Business men of As
toria, how do you like it?
' The furniture Arm of Ed. D. Curtis &
Co. yesterday made an assignment for
cue purpose oi seining up tuo DusineBs.
The liabilities are reported to be $14,000:
the asset will probably be equal to that
axaouat. Mr. C. F. McCormao is the
assignee.
At a meeting of the directors of the
, Hwaoo, Shoalwater bay and Gray's har
bor railroad; held at Ilwaco yesterday
afternoon, it was decided to levy an
assessment on the capital stock and im
mediately begin preliminary operations
oa the proposed line of road.
Astoria is unfortunate in being
the only eity in Oregon or Washington
territory cursed by a creature who at
tempts to collect money from the public
. without giving some return. But if
Astorians can stand it, no doubt other
communities will not object.
It is ascertained that the dead body
which came ashore at Scarborough head
-on Monday, and whioh was described in
, yesterday's issue, is the body of Olaf
Furre,who was lost from one of the boats
of the Pacific Onion Packing company,
on the 4th inst. Some of liia friends
west over after the body yesterday after
noon and will give it deoent burial.
Through the oourtesy of Senator Dolph
a copy of the population returns and sta
tistics of the last federal census has been
received. It is a huge volume, admirably
, ooBpiled and gives an exhaustive com
papain m of our country's growth. Oar
f little ooraer of the Union receives dub
-space and every precinct in Clatsop
county is noted carefully and correctly.
The book is embellished by numerous
v fine' maps.
How enterprising it seems to a stranger
'. who visits our city for the purpose of m-
vesting, to piok up a copy of the Depend
tut, whioh virtually says that Astoria is
go foot that an alleged "newspaper' has
to have the matter that appears in its
columns cast in San Francisco to save
paying men honest wages for h'onest
werk, He is very likely to put his money
ameng people who encourage such a
thing by their support !
tlbout llrtO last night two reports of
a revolver and the sound of flying foot
steps on 'Jefferson street filled the street
with men. Officer Vaughn had arrested
s nan for being drunk and when
at the jail door he broke away,
pursued by the officer who finally
- fired two shots a -ross his bow as a
signal for him to heave to. He was final-
X" overhauled and run in, and will be
ily penitent when his name is called by
the city attorney this afternoon.

riOXEEB A5D HISTORICAL SOCIETI".
ldJre- of Rt. Wb. Bhrt.
The annual meeting of tho Pioneer and
Historical Society of Oregon was held
last evening at the Congregntionpl
church. After a sdectioaibt the choir,
"Oh, How Lovely is Zion;" an impressive
prayer was uttered by Rov. Samuel Wood,
the pastor, after which tho choir sang,
"Hail, Festal Day."
Rev. William Roberts then delivered
tho twelfth annual address of the society.
Ho spoke as a pioneer of '47, as one of the
men who first saw this country "where
rolled the Oregon and heard no sound
save its own dashings.' He congratu
lated ?11 dwellers on this northwest coast
on their immunity from disaster, on their
possession of so many natural advan
tages, on their occupancy of so great a
country and hoped that their progress
would be commensurate with their oppor
tunity. He thought, as did the venerable
historian. George Bancroft, ''The com
monwealth is thechild cf Christianity."
Bancroft wc secretary of the navy under
Polk, and as acting secretary of war had
ordered the occupancy of California. On
looking over former addresses the speaker
thought that the rich mine of contem
poraneous history had been gleaned, and
nothing was left for him but tbp garner
ing of the little left un,:i. He Monght
that liis hearers "t7.::ld U egree on a few
peints:
1st. That the members of the society
were banded togethor for a common ob
ject. 2nd. That good citizenship was of par
amount value. That all good ieople,
wcli-meauing, industrious people were
welcome to this state; that people who
wouldn't be niissed at home were net
wanted; (hat the manufacture of good
citizens was worthy of encouragement.
3rd. That this society is a bond of
peace and brotherly love; there are no
rods in soak, that Christian charity per
vades and the good of all the sole object.
-tth. That there is a maiked distinc
tion in human conduct; that there ure
relative degraos of citizenship; that tbe
world owes no man a living; that what
ever tends to make that understood tends
to make good citizens.
5th That tbe conscious power of soci
ety is the safeguard of tbe nation; that
he who rightly helps to shape society is
the friend of humanity.
On the 21th of April, 1847, he landed
in San Francisco; six weeks after he
came to Oregon, and pr rived at Astoria
on the 29th of June, 215 days from New
York.
Polk's administration had uided and
fostered missionary work; it was the
season of great achievements; the Mex
ican war filled the popular ear with
glory, but tho Prince of Peace did not
allow negleot of his work, and mission
ary btations were located by the Ameri
can government. The efforts of the
church ante-dated the history of gov
ernment colonization, for in 1831 mis
sionaries were in the field, and not (ill
March, 1848, wea a territorial government
organized.
Dr. Wilbur Fiske, Janm Lee, Daniol
Lee, C. Shepherd, were in the vanguard
of progress; in May, 1837, came E White,
E. Beers, and others; in June 1840, came
still more. In June, 1847, camo Mr. Ger
ry, and the spenker arrived and transfer
red The Dalles mission to Dr. Marcus
Whitman. Three months after came the
dreadful massacre of Whitman and his
party, to which Mr, Roberts gave fitting
notice. These missionaries labored for
material and moral good. The speaker
narrated scenes of frontier warfare, of
hardship, of unremitting toil, and told of
the Indian wars, their causes, progress
and results.
The lenislative assembly of 181S called
on him for $1509 to help send Jesse Ap-
plegate as a commissioner to Washing
ton, and the money was supplied.
He spoke at length of the trials and trib
ulations of a generation ago, all of which
ho saw and part of which he was, and bo
stowed fitting euloffv on his compaions,
some of whom continue tbe work or
dained for thorn by tho Master while
others rest from their labors.
He closed in a peroration of great beau
ty and was warmly thanked by the soci
ety for his valuable and interesting
address. A vote of thanks was also
tendered the pastor and choir of the
Congregational church.
The following preamble and resolutions
were passed:
To the preset, and tttcmbers, i. and Hs:
Whebbas. In the providence of God,
the president of the P. and H. S. of Ore
gon, T P. Powers, has since the last
meeting of thi3 society been called by
death from his earthly labors, and
Whereas, President T. P. Powers was
in life preeminent as a true friend and
honorod member of this society since its
first organization, and
Whkbeib, One of the last acts of his
life was on endeavor to maintain and
perpetuate the existence of the society
through all time by donating to it two
valuable building lots in the suburbs of
the city of Asteria: Therefore be it
Resolved. That in the death of Tru
man P. Powers, tho Pioneer and Histori
cal Society of Oregon has sustained the
loss of an efficient presiding officer, and
one of its most energetic and valuable
members.
Resolved, That in the character of the
late. T. P. Powers, we reoognizo all tho
elements that make a great and good
man. In his death the state deplores the
loss of a pioneer whose efforts and exam
ple have done much in advancing her to
the exalted position she now occupies in
the sisterhood of states.
Resolved, That this sooiety extends its
warmest sympathies to the surviving re
lations of the deceased, and that a copy
of these minutes be spread upon the
records of the association.

The ToBffae.
It Li u pity that the world cauuot hold
its tongue until it knows what it is talk
ing about; but if it did this, what a silent
world it would bel Speculation, surmise
and guessing take tho place of knowledge
and facts relating to a great extent both
to persons and things.
Thero is a belief expressed by some
one, that ji sound once uttered, never
dies, but continues its circles through
space nnd all oternity, just 'aR a stone
caBt into tho water causes ripple after
ripple upon the surface, until they touch
the shore at all points. There being no
bounds to space, is it unreasonable to
suppose that sound waves may not repeat
themselves on through the ages into in
finity? This being trae, the words of
each will come back to each Hind words,
hard words, fair promises, lying words,
nrofano words, cure. Gentle words, flat
tering, hypocritical words, and all man
ner of words that come trom ail manner
of lins.
What music of the spheres are many
idle tongues oroating for themselves in
filling tbe hours with gossip and idle
talk! It would be well if some such be
lief could take n hold strong enough on
some people to cause them to think three
or four times before uttering ail they
would say. Harsh rumors, false reports,
and Dure falsehoods, would soon crow
"beautifully less;" many lives would be
come happier, many better and nil more
useful.
Tho tongue is the greatest offender of
our lives. It makes and mars, creates
and destroys; and has doomed many a
life to sorrow that it once raised to the
pinnacle of joy. San Jose, Cat., Mer

Would you call your wife a "bcreamlet"

Though a little hen's a pullet,
