the game as before. "Trial by Jury" was

THE GBA5D 10D6E OF 0BEG0JC.
.The Twfntj-alath Annual Session of the
i. u. u. r.
Three woekH ago tho Independent Order
of Odd Fellows throughout the union
celebrated tne sixty-fifth anniversary of
the founding of the order. Tho occasion
was niado tho means of eliciting consid
erable information regarding the order,
which has grown from six members to over
500,030; which has a yearly revenue of
$0,000,000, and which expends over $2,000
000 nyoar in the relief of its members and
their families.
Since that date there have been differ
ent sessions of grand lodges throughout
the country, the most notable on this
coast being the session of the grand lodge
of California, which met at San Fran
cisco last Wednesday, when the corner
stone of a new Odd Fellows' building to
cost $300,000 was laid with all due .cere
mony.
It is but a short time ago that the cor
ner stone of the finest building in Astoria,
and the largest Odd Fellows' hall in the
northwest was laid, and in that hall meets
to-day the twenty-ninth annual session of
the grand lodge of Oregon, represented

Money is getting easier in Seattle. A

fotiated for at the same rate. It is San

There is at present eighty-six saloons

monthly revenue of a fraction over
$2,503. Thero nro 103 licensed teams

butions to the city coffers equals $150 per

Ezra Meeker the veteran hop grower,
informs the Seattle Chronicle that the
Eield of the White river valley would, in
is opinion, reach 1,500,000 pounds, and
the Puyallup as much more, making a
total of 3,000,003 for King and Pierce
counties. Eegardin'g the prices likely to
rule during the present year Mr. Meeker
thought it unlikely that n rate higher
than 20 cents per ponnd would be ob
tained. Some contracts for fifteen cents
had been made, both on Puyallup and
White rivers, a figure which would make
fair margins for careful, 'experienced
producers. It cost3 3o per pound to
ship his hops from the yards Jo London,
he having seoured most favorable rates
for through transit. The farmera of
King county should receive for their hops
$250,000, and of this there should be at
least $45,000 clear money. Mr. Meeker
Is also becoming a producer of potatoes
to a considerable extent, expecting to
market some 7,000 bushels the present
year. His hop crop will yield 160 tons.
He cultivates 160 acre3.
Lsuek of the Iron BIlroJ Ftrrr.
The monster iron transfer boat for the
Northern Pacific Railroad company,
which was brought out here from New
York in sections And put together at the
yard of Smith Bros & Watson, was
launched yesterday forenoon. No public
announcement wan made of the event,
and so only about 200 persons, friends of
tho builders and workmen, were present.
The keel of the huge boat was laid only
two months ago, and the most sanguine
had no idea that she would be, ready for
launching in so short a time, but the con
tinuous line weather has enabled the work
to be continued almost without intermis
sion. All preliminaries having been arranged
at a few minute3 past 10 o'clock the work
men commenced knocking away the
sheaves and blocks beneath the boat.
This work ocoupiod half an hour, when
word was passed, "all clear nft," "nil
clear forward," and tho long hull waB
held in place only by the rope lashings
around the ways." 'Anianwa stationed
at each of these armed with a keen axe,
and at tho word of command the lash
ings were sovored and the huge structuro
weighing over 1,003 tons glided quietly
and pmootbly into the water. She was
wolcomed by a chorus of whiBtles from
several steamers which lay off in the
river, and in response sent a mighty wave
rolling to them which tossed them
around like corks. Two tugs made fast
to her nnd she was towed to Albina where
her machinery will bo put in.
She was originally intended to transfer
tho trains of tho Northern across the Co
lumbia at Kalama, but as the Kajama
section of that road is not in uso, it is not
certain where she will be employed. She
may bo used to transfer trains here, and
may transfer trains from here
to Kalama, and thus savo unloading and
loading cars. She is 338 feet in length,
40 feet breadth of beam, 73 feet 6 inches
breadth over all, and 13 feet 6 inches
depth of hold. She will have three- tracks
on her decks and is capable of trans
ferring twenty seven cars at onco. Ore

THE ODD FELLOWS' XABCH.
I saw in a distant city,
Far over the pathless sea,
A scone in tho days of my boyhood,
That will always seem grand to me.
I beheld a vast column approaching,
Their banners half clouded in dust,
And I read in the pure folds when sighted,
Our motto, "In God we Trust."
I beheld, as tho column moved onward.
In tho ranks both tho voung and the
old,
Arrayed in their garments of splendor,
Their regalia of crimson and gold.
Thero marched the Prince and the Peas
ant; Methinks I can seo them now,
As they marched to the soul stirring
music
With the knights of the anvil and plow.
There came an old man bearing hard on
his staff,
He must have passed threenscore and
ten.
His withered limbs and his wrinkled
brow,
How I wish I could see him again;
He bowed to the throng, to the right and
the left,
He was pleased with his chosen lot,
And beseemed to say. as he passed .me by
"Forget it not,' "forget it not."
Theywore on their breasts strange de
vices,
Crossed gavels, crossed axes and keys,
The pen, the sword and the hourglass,
And a fresh blossomed rose from the
tree,
And one carried the bow and quiver,
Another the serpent-twined rod,
And one in the usual regalia . .
Carried proudly the volume of God.
A beautiful banner waved high. in the
ranks,
Decked with emblems both brilliant
and bright,
Near the top were three golden links,
And the heart and tho hand to the
right,
Near the top of the staff three arrows
were twined -
Above them a young turtle dove,
Below the links m letters of gold
Was the motto, Truth, Friendship
and Love.
For forty years, tho old man said,"
Has my lot with tlm brotherhood
twined,
In days of affliction they buried my dead,
In their midst will my life be resigned.
They cared for my son with heart and
hand
Where friendless and lonely hta trou
bles were onded,
In n distant city and a foreign land,
Whero his grave with true friendship is
tended.
In overy city and in every clime,
Throughout this wholes land' broad
domain,
Told with tho power of proso and rhymo,
Is heard tho old man's refrain.
And thousands of banners aro waving
high
With twining arrows and beautiful
doves,
And thousand of hearts with oach other
vie,
To bless tho order of Truth, Friend
ship and Love.

Who wero inclined to take on trust
A vow, no matter how sincere,
Of. friendship, sympathy qr-loye;
Since that would all to us appear
. The sentiments which weakness prove.
Nay wo Should count ths first sweet blush
That overspreads the maiden's face
When first she notes the vivid flush
Her lover wears a keen disgrace.
We should prate ever of control,
And theorize on "new ideas"
Designed tp cramp tho human.soul,
And all its best emotions freeze. -
No smiles our sanction would receive
' Save such as aro to order made';
In policy -a e should believe,
And actions which plain truth evade.
All natural impulse must be checked,
Else Wfi had not oor dnfcv rtonn?
And hence produced the "fine effect"
ut seinsu aims ana tutored tongas.
A wise aristocrptio world,
Our hobbv it would ha trt kv
From whose proud -heights ba swiftly
nunca,
Each vestige of simplicity.
Andif-all this cpuld be achieved,
tin flnnlifc rrront -ortif vra oVinnliS- f al-o
For what our "sound minds" h"ad con-
ceiveu;
Ah sage reformers-wo should make.
If nature hnd not well disposed
Within each heart a cunning spring,
Which sometime touched at once dis
closed A tiny enpid on tho wing.
Or elbe, perchance, a hidden weU,
Of kindly foeling deep and pure:
Sufficient quite to truth impel,
Pure noble charity insure.
Ear better that wo should have known,
The uttermost of poignant grief;
Than that we eyer should disown,
Tho sympathy that lends, relief.
Thank God we cannot have our way.
But must submit to higher plan;
Thus reaping blessings day by day,
Through "Man's humanity to man."
