Notice To Advertisers. The Astoriax guarantees to its ad vertisers the largest circulation of any newspaper published on the Columbia river. Astoria and "Vicinity. The county court meets to-morrow. School begins in District No. 1 to-morrow. Squemoqua and Main streets are being elevated. The Miles goes on her regular excur sion to the cape this morning. Mr. C. W. Shively, clerk school district No. 18, gives notice concerning school taxes. The marriage license department of the comity clerk's office finds almost steady employment. Rev. J. M. C. Bouchard, S. J. will lec ture at the Roman Catholic church at eight o'clock this evening. The Oregon state university will next October open n law school, and thus is tilled another "long felt want." The regular monthly meeting of the vestry of Grace church will be held to morrow evening at 8 o'clock sharp. That must have been a gay old ''teach er's institute" lately held at lvalama. There was one teacher present, and no more. Harrv Buckley, agent for the Fay Templeton troupe, is in the city. His company will be here on Monday, the 8th pros. St. John still hopes that somebody will start a story about him. He is anxious to let the country know that he is running for president. Probably no city on the coast of its size can show such an amount of im proving property going on as is now in progress in Astoria. The "Willamette Iron "Works at Port land narrowly escaped total destruction by fire last Friday afternoon. As it was the loss reached $5,000. A telegram from Minneapolis says that there is no market there for Oregon wheat. It is about a stand off with the depressed salmon market. The Oregonian reports that the Walla Walla, has completed the sluicing at Walker's island and there is now 19 feet depth at extreme low water. The Kirkwood and Belle of Oregon will fimch this week, which, with the excep tion of the W. H. Starbuck, will about close the shipments of salmon by sail for '8L The News says that ' the links of friendship between the Astoria and Salem fire companies were welded in Salem after the tournament at Albany.' Correct. The Idaho left out for Alaska at two o'clock yesterday afternoen: the tugs Astoria and Novelty arrived in from Coos bay: The Tarn O'Shanter crossed eut: the Columbia sailed for San Fran cisco. Goldendale, "W. T., must be having a feverish season of prosperity. A sub scription was started there the other day to build a bridge, and every newspaper man in the place "headed the list" with $20. "Where in the world they got so much wealth excites inquiry. Beoker, the Portland fire bug, who burned John Stephana1 saloon last May, has been held in the sum of $5,000 to an swer to the charge of arson. Between the man. that murders in passion and the man that sets fire- coolly and deliberately, our sympathies are with the former. H. B. Thielson, chief engineer of the O. H. & N. Co., reports that only eight miles of grading remain to bo done to enable the company's tracks and those of the Oregon Short Line to be connected. There are 2,003 Chinamen at work, and with the aid of electric light, they work night and day. He expects to complete the connection of the rails by Nov. 1st. The board of directors of the Mechan ics' fair has issued invitations to the state militia for a competitive drill. A gold medal will be given for the best drilled companv, and silver one for the second best. Certain evenings during the fair will bo set apart for the drill, to be known as military evenings. Here's an opportunity for Astoria to win another trophy. Don't work to-day. Take it easy. Lay cares and campaigns aside for the day. "When the waves!)augh into foam at your feet or the waters dash around you, or the leaves smile in the breeze, answer their joy with a joy of your own. "Where the jocund spirits of youth make the air merry with laughter, there is a good place to be. "Worry will do on the week days, and there are six or them. The Albany Democrat says that the Astoria firemen kicked ''because they didn't have things free." The Demo crat is misinformed. The Astoria fire men "kicked" because some of the Al bany people tried to cinch them on prices. As long as the Democrat has started it, it may as well be known that some of Al bany's citizens seemed to consider the tournament as a good chance to get whatever prices they demanded and acted accordingly. The Astoria boys ex pected nothing "free." They went there with plenty money in their pockets, but didn't propose to pay more than first class prices for less than second-class accomodations. There is crape on the lintels of the navy" department. Our dearly beloved and tenderly nurtured navy is no more. The Tallapoosa, famed in song and story has gone down in ten fathoms of water. The stanch old ship that has borne presi dents and secretaries and their beautiful ladies now lies on Squash Meadow Flat, with her smoke-stack pointing upwards. The good old salt had taken a schooner too much, and her hull could not stand the press. So passes away the glory of our once magnificent navy. "What is to become of our admirals heaven only knows. In the meantime all we can do is to man a few rafts and keep the flag floating. Something which must strike a good many people in this campaign is the amount of reading of the back files of newspapers that is going on. Almost every newspaper that now supportsCleve lancf, particularly1 the converts, has on record in its immutable past something derogatory to the Buffalo man's abilities, his affiliations or hiB act?. It is afflicting to the man who now writes that "Cleve lon ia fhfi son! of star-eved probitv" to have.throst under his nose nis former opinion that "Cleveland is a stub-tailed slave of corporate monopoly." On the other hand, the editor who now takes the soul-white country into his confidence and says: "The Republican candidate, James G. Blaine, will be elected beyond peradventure" must hate tho wretch who revives the fact that the same editor was Shouting not long since that "the candi dacy or the black-winged bird Blaine will .mean irreparable disaster." Nobody seems to care a rap what he has said about Butler, for Butler does not look over his editorial supporters with any his toric squeamishness. At the Empire Store a splendid assort ment of Gentlemen's Neckwear. ROILED DOWX A bi gold striko is reported at Itockv Point, Montana. A negro girl wasld at Saratoga, N.Y., for $1,'JC0 on the 2iUh. Two thousand Piegan Indians are starving near Helena, Montana. Gen. Butler addressed 5,000 people at Williams Grove, Penn., last Friday. A southern Indiana hurricane destroyed $.T0.CO0 worth of property last Friday. A sleeping car filled with circus em- Pioyes was destrovoJ by fire near Denver last Thursday. Ton men perished in the flames. The Chinese are preparing to invade Touquin. Frenchmen have been ordered to leave Canton. It is thought that there will be a cessation of hostilities this week. An Indianapolis dispatch of the 29th says: In the Blaine libel suit against the Sentinel fifteen days was allowed the defense in which to answer. The time expired to-day and Mr. Shoemaker en tered an appearance. This action was necessary to escape default. The defense will now have its own time unless plain tiffs attorney secure a rule requiring an immediate answer. In the latter case it is customary to grant ten days further time. LOW PRICKS. The price of wheat is way down all over the world. It would be difficult to sell "Walla Walla wheat for export in Portland, which is our present shipping point, for much, if anything, above one dollar per hundred or l) cents per bushel. To get the wheat to Portland the shipper has to pay over one-third of tho price in that place, or 21 cents a bushel to the railroad coiupiny. To that cost must bo added the -price of sacks, the expanse of drayage, insurance interest, coiumissions and wastage, which cotnbimd increase the total about eight c?uts a bushel. It costs over T1 cents a bushel to mis wheal in tho Walla .Walla country when the av erage yield is 2." bushels per acre. Theso figures make it evident lhit the present market price of wheat is less than the average cost of production. When the cost of production is greater than the market value, distress follows, production ceases, and the producers seek other modes of making a living. Of course they can do little in any new line of pro duction for many months to come, and in the meantime tho product of their wheat fields is not available for any pur pose. II '. Jl'. Union. TlieJTew Tuir. Considerable interest was manifested yesterday when it was telegraphed that the new tugs Astoria and Norelly were crossing in, and quite a crowd went down to the wharf to sec the Astoria. On her arrival in she took a party aboard and steamed down to Ft. Stevens and back in an hour and three minutes, carrying about 70 pounds of steam at the time. She is substantially built, is 114 feet 2 in ches in length, 22 feet G inches beam, 12 feet 8 inches depth of hold; has com pound engines, steel boilers, and is well fitted throughout. The Novelty is 70 feet long, 18 feet beam, 7 feet depth oi hold. and. it is thought, will ply at Knappton. 30TICK.

F.. at the session of the grand ! lodge of that jurisdiction last week, called especial attention to the extraordi nary and useless funeral expenses some times incurred at the burial of the members of the order, and suggested that measures be taken to prevent such a wasteful expenditure of money. This is a subject that has often been alluded to in the past by eminent writers, not connected with fraternal societies, and in some cases, without doubt, their sensible arguments have been heeded, but there is still room for improvement. Honor, respect and merited tributes to the worthy dead are not symbolized by rose wood, silver ornaments, or long proces sions of carriages, but by the sincere emotions of the heart. Fraternal societies, nnmberiug as they do many hundreds of thousands of our best citizens, can exert a powerfnl influ ence in this direction, and it is full in keeping with their principles tliat they should so. Their laws require "that the remains of a brother be given decent sepulture," and that he shall be laid to rest with kindly hands and sympathetic hearts, but nowhere will be found either requirement or authority for tho vainglo rious pomp that is now and then seen, so inappropriate and useless, so inconsistent with solemn occasion. The large majority of fraternal society membeis are mtn of family, men who work for a living, who have'uo bank ac counts, or but small ones at best. When death calls them hence, they leave, per chance, a little home of their own, with widow and orphans, but rarely much money. In their hours of distress the bereaved families must depend entirety on the good offices of others, and it is just here that the lodge officials, m duty to tho dead, should take charge of and ar range the details of the funeral, and see that they arc within proper limits, ami that no useless or extravagant expenses are incurred to draw upon the slender means of the family. Expenses for carriages, crape, gloves, mourning apparel, casket, etc., are some times seen for the funeral of men in most moderate circumstances, that would have sufficed for the burial of a statesman or millionaire. It is simply wrong, more than wrong, wicked and unjust to de pendent families, and a practice that cannot too soon bo abolished. And for lodges themselves, when they take entire charge of a funeral, let every thing be douo decently and in order, but let the tribute of respect be in tho at tendance of the brethren, not in costly outside shew: let the money that some times goes to ornament, go where is is most needed to tho familv. The views of the Grand blaster of New York are correct, and should be most heartily indorsed. Don't He Hani On the car drivers and conductors. Don't order them about, or speak harshly to them.
