FRIDAY. AUGUST 8, 1881
A NEW MARKET.
Washington officials think that
the government exhibit at the New
OrleanB exposition will surpass in in
terest as well as extent that made at
the centennial Experience at the
centennial showed that the public
only take an interest in the catchy or
showy displays, and that the more
theatrical they are, the more likely
they are to attract attention. The
display to be made by the fish com
mission will be larger than that sent
to Paris last year, or Vienna two
years ago. The Smithsonian will, be
sides, exhibit n fall collection of the
mammals of North America. Alarge
force of taxidermists is now at work
getting these specimens in order.
Every branoh of the government will
be represented. The life-saving ser
vice will have wrecks and go through
the form of saving life every day.
The exhibits will not be shipped un
til November next, so that they can
be properly arranged and packed. A
large temporary frame building is
now being built on the ground east
of the national museum, the rooms
of the museum not being sufficiently
large for the purpose.
Our Columbia canners will have a
splendid opportunity to make a dis
play. The directors have written to
The Astobian, and desire a display
from the great fish river of the north
west There is a great deal in a name,
after all, especially during a politioal
campaign. This conclusion is proved
by the fact that there are now 125
Blaine and Logan songs and only 60
for Cleveland and Hendricks. The
number of songs composed in honor
of any pair of presidential candidates
is no oriterion of their popularity.
On the contrary, too much of a good
thing is sometimes an aggravating
superfluity. It is safe to say that had
the names of the Democratic candi
dates been Jones and Brown there
would have been written more songs
than there are voters. A campaign
poet is to be pitied. Only once in
four years he gets a chance to mount
his fiery Pegasus, and when he is
firmly seated he forge3 ahead until
the gentle muse is converted into a
hobby, which he incontinently rides
to death. Spavined stanzas, reckless
rhymes and foundered feet are all
grist to him, and he grinds with a
determination that recks not of re
morse. The present campaign promises to
be full of good eating and drinking.
Kentucky has already opened the
banquet with a grand barbecue, at
which were roasted, whole, eighty
five beeves, sheep and hogs, and a
thousand gallons of soup, with other
fixings, served. The head of the de
mocracy of Kentucky is level. Noth
ing so so deeply impresses the ability
and patriotism of a candidate upon
the mind of a voter as "a good feed."
If the Plumed Knight desires to
hold his own against the beeves of
.Kentucky lie will supply pies. Sev
eral thousands of pumpkin pies will
be needed to fill the bilL To each
pie should be added cheese. Voters
must be fed first and talked to after
ward. "Cubses, like chickens, come home
to roost." It was very funny to call
Blaine "the tattooed man," and try to
malign him, but it is not near so fun
ny to explain Mr. Cleveland's record.
Those things are always funny till
they come home.
The Northern Pacific railroad com
pany has bought the logs that were
to have been jised by the Terminal
company in the construction of the
Albina elevator, and will build them
It takes a -vast deal of "time and

It made Beecher sick when lie
