The memorial service at the Congrega tional church this ceiling is the only feature of Decoration day thnt nil! be observed in Astoria. The k-rvices will be impressive. Ladies arti asked to Fend flowers to the hall over Caraahr.n A Co.'s from 10 to 3 to-day. Visitors speak with the utmost enthu siasm of tho glorious weather that we of Astoria are enjoying. It it is only when people that live in less-favored localities call attention to the beautiful weather that any notice is taken ot what appears to be a matter of course to residents. The Oregonian advertises an "Albina club" at Astoria. There is an "Albina club" here composed of one momber. He says ho started a papor in Albina to elect a justice of tho peace, and the 'damned thing died." Ho is trying the same game hero with the same probable result. George P. llowell i; Co., tho New York advertising agents say that the circula tion of Am enoan newspapers is rapidly inceasing. The Astobian, published the farthest west of any daily morning new paper in the United States, is happy to say that its increasing circulation cor roborates the statement. One of tho most ridiculous things in Jifeistohear a blowhard talking about .his "influence," when it is dollars to d mes that when election day comes he can't "influence" his own vote. This is more especially the caso when he is a little cur that wears his master's collar and does his master's dirty work and gets his pay in trade. From all parts of the district come the most flattering reports concerning the political prospects of Frank Taylor and Tom McBride. With them it is only a question of majority. It is for Clatsop to help the thing along. They are both talented and deserving young men, have made a good record and deserve a solid vote from Clatsop. Bice's Surprise party drew another crowded house at Occidental hall last night. The principal attractions Kate Castleton and Harry Phillip wero mar ried in San Francisco about two weeks ago, and are now enjoying their bridal trip. The entire troupe has considerable talent and will do good business in Ore gon and "Washington. There is an effort making in certain ?uartera to croato a "boom" for W. "W. 'haver for supremo judge. It is not the intention of The Abtoeuij to rake up . the unsavory things alleged against the ex-governor, but -Rill suggest that Hon. L. Fllhn of Linn deserves and will doubt less receive substantial support in this -section for the position of supreme judge. The Kendall Combination is the next And they say the troupe is "immense." It is no use saying that money is "scarce" in Astoria. A city of its size thai is able to put up $4,000 in one week for amuse ments lhas plenty of money, and now that the Kendalls are coming it is as well to bear in mind that reserved seats can be had at the Hew York Novelty Store. EnlgUts cf. rjthlss. The order of Knights of Pythias Is founded on naught but tho purest and sincerest motives; its aim is to alleviate the sufferings of a brother, succor the unfortunate, zealously watch at the bed side of the sick, soothe the pillow of the dying, perform the last sad rites "at the grave of a brother, offer consolption to the afflicted and care for the widow and orphan. Great disadvantages have been overcome in tho founding ot the order. but beneficial results hae been brought1 forth. Organized during the heat of the lsta civil strife, it has steadily advancod in numbers and in importance and is now in a flourishing condition. The beautiful lesson of friendship between Damon-and Pythias is sought to be prac tically taught by a ritual which, for beauty and clearness of language, can not be surpassed. This young and grow ing order originated in the city of Wash ington, D. C, on the 19th day of Feb ruary, 1864. Next the ordor gained a foothold an Pennsylvania, Maryland, otc in 1867. In a short time tho order made its advent on this const, and it has obtained a fooling and a homo in every fltato and territory of the Union, passed into the British provinces of North Am erica, and made a name and a home in the islands of the sea, crossed tho Atlan tic ocean and fomido J lodges in the king dom of Great Britain. iTo-day it has a membership of over 150,000, and it can hardly bo said it is of ago. Based upon the old story of Damon and Pythias, it seeks to inculcate tho worth and beauty of such a friendship. Its cardinal prin ciples aro friendship, charity and benev olnnofl: its mottoes and teachings arc onerous, brave and true. Tho f unda- raant&l nrincioles of tho order aro before the world; its deeds aro not concealed from puoiic scrutiny, wane iuo cqhijuiu tion and laws of tho society are within the reach of all who wish to examine them. Astoria is the banner citvof the northwest in proportion to its size, ana the members of tho K. of P. iu this city .are among its best citizens. Flower Pots.

To-day tho nation honors the memory of tho honored dead; tho brilliant blos ooms with which tho heroes1 graes are wreathed obliterating tho tcara of war. Eurih'a fairest floral treasures adorn tho resting place of the men who, in tho first glow of early summer in tho dead years that arc past, fought in defeuso of the Union, and though tho fortunes of war fatruck their names from the muster roll of duty, a grateful country inscribes them on the boadroll of immortal fame. The card of lrife are fast becoming but a memory. It is as well. "Tis nineteen years einco North and South laid down tho sword and tho tears of a united country ver blended above tho graves of tne men who had sealed with tneir lives their devotion to what they deemed to be the right. The old bitterness is no longer manifest. A new generation is growing up with new hopes, purposes and ideas. From the past comes a sigh of romem brance over the fate of those who went to battle but did not return. Every re curring 20th of ,May the shutters are opened in the windows of Memory's pw ture callery and the dear dead faces are viewed witn streaming eyes. The-duy is an occasion purely senti mental. It is the only distinctively sen- tnuentRl American Holiday, ino dead ara past all help or need of help; yet from the sunrise peafcfl-of the Atlantic to the desert wastes of arid Arizena: from the sunlit waters of the southern gulf to this far-eff western shortfall gently over the little mounds of earth the graceful bios boms of spring, Jrindly tributes to the nation's dead from the children of the nation thatpassed through the purifica tion of lire. How sleep the brave who sink to rest. Bv all thoir country's wishes blest! When Spring, with dewy fingers cold, Ee turns to deck their hallowed mould; She there shall find a sweeter sod Than Fancy s feet have over trod. By fairy hands their knell is rung, Bv forms unseen their dirge is sung; There Honor comes, a pilgrim gray, To bless the turf" that wraps thoir clay. And Freedom shall awhile repair To dwell a weeping hermit there. Fire la Portland. Portland i3 getting quite a record for fires and failures. This time it is in John Stephens' saloon that tho fire orig inated. Stephana was down here the early pin of the week and left here yes terday morning.

Several other buildings, including Dav idson's photograph establishment and "Uncle Meyers" pawn-brokers' shop are also consumed. Ira F. Powers' furniture, and Olds & Summers nro tho heaviest losers.

The deceased lady was formerly Miss Bnttorfield, and was married at Eureka. Cal., about a year ago to Mr. C. A. Campbell, tho young couple coming to Aslona on their bridal J tour. .ilr. Campbell wuortly afterward accepted the management of tho Horton Hoaso at San Diego, and his wife accom panied him with every assurance of a long and happy lifo before them. Mrs. Campbell made many friends during her stay here, and the sad news of her un timely death will be read witn sincere regret by many who sympathize with the sorrowing husband PERSONAL. Mrs. E.

For tho first time in the history of tho Derby.tho great raco last Wednesday was a dead heat. Tho National Greenback convention is in session at IndianaDolis. Ben Butler has been offered tho presidential nom ination. An amendment was offered in tho sen ate, on the 28th, by Senator Dolph.to the bill to reimburse states for expenditures made in common defense. It provides that the eecretary of tho treasury be au thorized to pay to the state of Oregon 35,140, and to the state of California 95, for expenditures incurred in sup pressing the Modoc Indian hostilities. Great excitement has been caused at Wabash, Indiana, by the discovery of a half pound of dynamite, with a three foot fuse attached, andor tho Journal office.

"Thay B3y tho stand taken by Eindill shows that he is opposed to the passage of anwriTer and harbor bill this session, and wili endeavor to prevent its consideration, and the chances are that congress will adjonrn without making any appropriations for continuing the improvement of. the rivers and harbor? of tho country. Ar-siucrfttlc Presidential Gttstlp. Wahhikqto:., Mat 23. Stories are cur rant here that information bos been re ceived direct from New York that if Til dan Ls tendored the Demoeratio nominc ti?n for President, ha will accept. It Is stated that a prominent member of congress has a le:ter from the sage of Gramercy park, detailing his wishes as to further action by the house, and stat ing in direct terms that if nominated ho will make nnother campaign. This letter is being shown among democratic leaders and has caused an entire change of the congressional programme It is stated that Tilden advises -the speedy passage of the remaining appropriation bills and adjournment about July 1, and meantime all talk of tariff revision shall ceaee. There is now no doubt among Demo cratic congressmen that Tilden will ac cept, and it is stated that intimations havo been received by Hendricks that he will again run for vico president, if Til den accepts. However, there will be a severe straggle for this place, and Hen dricks may not receive muoh encourage ment to cnango his mind. The Demo crats in congress aro earnestly discussing Tdden and tne vice presidential nominee. There is a disposition among them to defer to tho wishes and counsel of the Democrats of doubtful states. liepresentative Nichols of Georgia, says: "I would find out tho man whom tho delegates from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut want and I would tako that man. Thoso .aro states that will elect the presidont, and what we waut is a candidate that can carry them." Democrats who voted against the Mor risson bill all favor this policy of yield ing to tho wish of doubtful states and some who voted for that measure take this view. Some of tho latter think that the tariff quarrel -would better be dropped. Senator George of Mississippi, an earnest tariff reformor. says that now the fight is over, the subject should be let nlono within the party for the present; that the Democrats-in congress ought to ?iuit talking about it, and let the bad eeling the question caused die out. All this talk is believed to be due to inspira tion from New York. The Patent Lamp Filler. The most useful housohold invention of the age.
