THE FASTEST BOAT 05 THK COLUMBIA.
To be Beadjr for Use December lit, ISSt.
Thero is nothing succeeds like success.
Whether a man runs a bootblack stand,
a newspaper, a steamboat, or a quartz
mill, if he runs it well and gives satisfac
tion, he, is bound to win. Two years ago
Capt. Scott put the little steamer Fleet
wood on the river between Portland and
Astoria, and immediately scoured 0 lib
eral patronage from the traveling public
on the lower Columbia, who appreciated
fast time. He run his boat in the
interest of U. B. Scott, primarilj, but
in such on accommodating way that
every one felt that it was a convenience,
and the success, of the enterprise has
been unparalleled. Last year the O. R.
& N. company put on the Wide West, and
again this season, running the same days
as the Fleetwood, and giving Astorians tne
best river service of any community in the
northwest. That company has been en
terprising in all its dealings with this
community, and Astoria appreciates it;
but it is not forgotten that the Fleetwood
runs right along, summer and winter,
seaside or no seaside, and whether it be
January or July, gives a man a chance to
go to Portland, transact his business and
return the next day.
Add now Capt. Scott and his con
freres design building a new boat,
which, they propose to outrun any craft
on the Columbia and make the 110 miles
between hero and Portland in five hours.
The plans show that she is built for
speed: Sbo will bo 170 feet in length, 23
feet beam, and is calculated to draw only
8K feet. She will be a stern-wheeler; her
wheel will be 24 feet in diameter (the
ijurline's is l3h and It is intended that
the wheel Bhall make SO revolutions a
minute. The boilers will have 280 tubes,
the intention being to make steam ranid
ly. The engine will have two 2 inch
cylinders, and an 8-foot stroke. The main
hall will bo 119 feet in length; there will
De twenty nneiy ntted stateroom q, and
the building and appointments of the
vessel are intended to be first-clas3 in
every -respect. The contract was signed
yesterday for the building of the entire
vessel. Her hull will be built at East
Portland; the Willamette Iron Works
will build her machinery, and it is calcu
lated that on December 1 she will make
her first trip from Portland to Astoria.
The estimated coat of the vewel is $35,

TLe Venerable Wlttlclims Without Which
the Funny Mia Would Suffer.
The same ancient and venerable witti
cisms appear at regular seasons of the
year with a punctuality only equalled by
the visit of the bill collector or the return
of the July salmon. We have been in
formed for years that the taste of the
average young woman for theater tickets
and oyster suppers is tho cause of that
financial ruin that of ttimes overtakes the
young man in the morning of life. We
have read of the deep-laid schemes of the
young husband to escape from the do
minion of his mother-in-law, and of the
dire failure of his plans. This seemed
funny for a few thousand times or so,
but at last it began to seem as if we had
heard that joke bofore, and upon reflec
tion all its effect was lost when sober
second thought forced us to the convic
tion that the son-in-law is as often a nui
sance to the mother-in-law as the mother-in-law
to the son-in-law and probably
Then there is that hugo joke about
Chioago girlB having large feet, and that
other one about the love of girls for pie.
"Why should they not love pie? Looked
at from -an economic point of view pie is
very filling for the money. If pio is eat
en, however, as it is made in some locali
ties the matter is by no means a joke,
and the eating of that luxury is a very
At present the two standard jokes are
the ice-cream joke and the charming and
most exquisitely funny story about the
husband trying to get his wife to go to
the country for her health, while he re
mains at home and paints the town red.
These witticisms have seen long service,
but yet hold their own well. For all that
we know, the ice-cream joke came over
with the Pilgrim Fathers, and its an
tiquity may be traced back as far as that
of the Masonic order, whose fondness for
cream explains the butter myth in regard
For Parent! to Bead.
This is an age of many and cheap
