from a distance often arrives so tainted
as to be unfit for use. By painting the
tainted parts with a strong solution of
iodine, which quickly permeates the soft
tissue, tho game must be very 'high in

have no idea of its over having been
thought 'high.' ' Persons who have no

THE WILLIAM H. ST US BUCK.
The Wm. II. Starbuch is off for New
York. Sho is one of the finest
of the many fine vessels that have
loaded at this port, and is of special in
terest to Astoriaus as being a vessel char
tered by an Astorian A. "W. Berry
loaded wholly here, carrying the first con
signment of lumber from the Columbia
river to New York, and transacting all
her business at an expense that will com
pare favorably with tho experience of
vessels that go father inland. The Wm.
II. Starbuch on her first trip to tho Co
lumbia brought a cargo of railroad iron.
A part of this sho discharged here, the
rest being unloaded at a point on the
Willamette, a hundred miles from the
sea, where she took on a portion of her
return cargo, finishing at Astoria and
sailing for D. K.
This time sho came in ballast from
San Francisco, discharging here, and tak
ing on her entire cargo at this point. To
insure conformity with the Dmgley act
Capt. Ried kept the greater part of his
crew from the time he entered tho
river, and through this entailed consider
able additional expense, tho entire dis
bursements of the vessel amount to but
a trifle over $4,300. This is considered to
be about as practical an argument as can
be put forward regarding the advantage
to ship owners of loading their vessels at

Gen. H. A. Newton, chief of engineers,

where havo made him famous, is on tho
Columbia and will sail for San Frrncisco
Learning of his arrival hero, a com
mittee from tho chamber of commere
consisting of Messrs. Gray, Hodden, Ber
ry and others visited him informally yes
terday evening in reference to the work
soon to bo in progress at the mouth of
Columbia, for tho permanent improve
ment of tho bar. The general received
thevisitors cordially. Ho said that the
entire corps of D. S. engineers recognized
tho great importance as a national mat
ter of improving the bar, that in a work
of such magnitude there was necessarily
a considerable amount of preliminary
work to be done which entailed apparent
delay, but that the plans were all agreed
upon, the specifications all drawn up and
approved, and the work would be begun
and pushed to completion as fast as pos
sible. The fact that tho erosive storms
of winter would tend to render progress
somewhat slow if work was begun at this
season of the year, was cited as one of
the reasons for not beginning immedi
ately, and this, together with the fact
that the present appropriation is insuffi
cient for more than preliminary opera
tions necessitated apparent delay.
ltecognizing tho necessity of giving
the work the attention that its impor
tance demands, the department decided
to send Major W. A. Jonos to take charge
of the government works on the upper
vummuia, uuu give entire cuargo or tne
work in this vicinity to Capt. Chas. F.
Powell, whose able administration of af
fairs is good guaranteo that it will be
Gen. Newton is enthusiastic in relation
to this work, and is wholly in accord
with the idea that tho best interests of
the northwest demands prosecution of
the great work.

SPEECH OF HON. J. 0. A. B0WLBT.
Delivered at the Wigwam Last Erenine.
Judge Bowlby spoke at the Blaine and
Logan headquarters last evening. He
Last night we adjourned in courtesy
to our friends on the other side. To
night it is iu order for us to discuss the
questions that underlie the principles of
our government and see what is necessary
to advance those principles. The Re
publican party is a party of progress.
Not satisfied with its glorious record it
constantly presses forward, meeting new
issues as they come and so adjusting
them as to redound to the best interests
of our country. The Democratic party
always followed at a respectful distance
fighting and growling at the party
ahead of them,opposing its principles and
ridiculing its policy, until both Republi
can principles and Republican policy
were proved to be the correct ideas and
then and not till then did the Democratic
party acknowledge that the Republican
party was right
The only plea that the Democratic par
ty had now was that it was time for a
change. "What did they have to offer as
reason for a change? Take the ques
This Ls a question that is not new, but its
great importance makes it foremost. As
a theory, free trade is a fine idea. If this
was the millenium; if we were all friends
and brothers; if men in England, in Aus
tralia, in Europe and Africa were all
alike, if thov all thought the same way
and wanted tho same thing in the samo
way, then free trade would be good, lint
we must take things as they are; we
didn't have tho making of existing facts;
must deal with circumstances as they
find them. Self preservation Ls the first
law of nature; after self comas family
and friends; a nation is but an aggrega
tion of individuals, and as a matter of
business it is necessary for us to protect
ourselves. We are not ready yet to copo
with the nations a thousand years older
than we. We must so arrange that
labor shall not be as low as in Europe;
we want to have a bettor living than they
have in Europe, and the surest way of
doing that is to have a wise tariff that
will keep Europe from swamping us.
Theory is one thing, practice Ls an
other. The speaker quoted from official
consular reports, and other sources show
ing that without wiso protection we were
left defenceless and at the mercy of the
accumulated capital of Europe. The
speaker contrasted twenty-three years of
Republican administration with an equal
time of preceding Democratic adminis
tration greatly to the dotriment of the
lutter regarding our national protperity.
European manufacturers wore jealous of
our prosperity; they looked with longing
eyes to our shores, and our national
wealth, improvement and tangible in
crease proved to all that our protective
policy was a wholesome public meas
ure. Reduce the tariff and you paralyze ev
ory branch of industry. If a change is
good by all means let us have a change;
if a change is needed, tho Republican
party will advocate it, but let the Demo
cratic party show somo reason for tho
demand beyond asking for "a change."
Wo had a good illustration of what free
trade was right here in Astoria, for be
fore the present "recipiocity treaty" went
into effect a man on the Columbia could
sond by the Jane. A. Falfrinburg to the
Sandwich Islands, lumber and salmon,
and get back sugar. Now that trade is
gone. Cnder tho beautiful "reciprocity
treaty" we havo no trado with tho Is
lands and pay moro for our sugar. Can
our freo trade friends explain this? All
the Democratic speakers had talked on
this question, but none were able to
show how our country would prosper
better under free trado than protective
Col. Effinger gave it as "his own person
al idea" that he didn't believe in taxa
tion except as a means of carrying on the
government. That gentleman didn't
think that that was a party question, but
thought that more Democrats believed as
he did than did Republicans. The speak
er thought that should the Democrats
get into power they would come squarely
out against tho country's best interests
and declare for free trade.
Tho loaders of the Democratio party
had never favored
THE HOMESTEAD LAW.
In the old Blavery days they favored
the acquisttion of territory out of which
to make new states for the perpetuity of
tho slave power. They didn't want set
tlers nor settler's rights. To the Repub
lican party was due the credit of the law
that gave every man the right to tako
up 1C0 acres of soil on which to live a
freeman, independent and prosperous,
enjoying tho benefits of a free govern
ment. Land had been given to the corpora
tions with too lavish a hand, but what
ever the Republican party had done in
that respect was only by following bad
example set them by the Democrats. The
only Democratic plea to-day is "Give us
a change." Change was good sometimes.
It might be well to take the sun out of
the sky, but sunlight was good enough
for most folks audit would be perhaps
just as well to let the sun keep on shin
ing as to try the experiment of getting a
better light. Supposing there was a
change: what would be done? The Dem
ocratic programme Ls silent on that
In regard to tho candidates it was well
known that tho Democrats admitted
Blaine's efficiency, his splendid public
record, his great services as a public serv
ant. Charges had been brought against
Blaine: they had be6n met, conclusively,
and it was conceded that no man in the
nation would fill the presidential chair
with greater propriety.
The "Mulligan letters" were then dis
cussed and explained, as has been dis
cussed and explained a thousand times
before. No man could live in tho fierce
light that beats on the foremost intellect
in the nation without making enemies.
Mr. Cleveland had made few enemies.
Why? He has never had either the abil
ity to make himself distinguished, or the
brains that command prominence. The
E residency of the United States is tho
ighest office on earth. Can we give it
to say to the world that a man of Cleve
land's calibre is the best man that we
can get to set up as our exponent! Com
pare the two men. Leave out of the
question tho fact that England wants to
humble us, to beat us by electing Cleve
land, but look at the two men, as repre
sentative Americans and decide.
Next Tuesday we shall cast our ballots
it is a high privilege, a great responsibil
ity.! Let us vote as intelligent Americans,
fully aware of our high destiny as a peo
ple and with a due sense of the impor
tance of so exercising our sovereignty as
to insure the best results to the nation.

Was Haiinp the Canseor Tonus Strang's
Death! " -
Tho following appears in an Annapolis
special to tho Now York Sun of the 18th:
'A court martial is now in progress at
the Naval Academy for the purpose of
trying several cadets accused of "run
ning," which is a a mild type of hazing
But in spite of the efforts of Superintend
ent Ramsey and the special act of con
gress against hazing, it exists unques
tionably at Anapolis. There is good
reason, in spito of denials, to think that
tho death of young Strang, which occur
red last week, was from tho effects of
horse play on the part of the third class.
This young man, who was a nophew of
Lieut. Schwatka of arctic fame, was ap
pointed from Oregon. He came to Wash
ington and presented himself at the
Navy Department. He is said to have
been a very handsome young fellow, with
bearing and manners equally prepossess
ing. Secretary Chandler was so pleased
with him that'he remarked after the boy
"I am going to give that youngster a
first-class chance on account of his
looks. I want to see if there Ls not
material for a good officer in such a look
Strang went to tho academy, and with
in twelve hours after getting there was in
the hospital. His injuries resulted os
tensibly from falling out of his ham
mock. A surgical operation was neces
sary, and the poor boy died from the ef
fects. Therois, unfortunately, grounds
for supposing tnat no was tatally hurt in
an encounter with the third clas3, by be
ing put in a barrel and rolled around un
til the hazing party chose to let him out
At one time the brutalities of hazing
at Annapolis were frightful, an instance
being known of a fourth class man who
was held out ofa fourth-story window by
third class men, who threatened every
moment to drop him. Since Captain
Ramsey has been at the academy he has
used every means to stop tho hazing, and
has succeeded in breaking it up in a
measure; but it looks as if cadets would
persist in it, in spite of .the certainty of
dismissal. They are found out, and,
what is worse, in violation of the oath
taken on entering the academy to sup
port the laws of tho United States, of
which an act against hazing is one.
As for running the fourth class men,
that is extensively practiced. The fourth
class aro not allowed to drink milk, "by
order of tho first class." They aro put
through a variety of harmless exercises,
such as being turned out of their ham
mocks at night, being forced to sing with
a stick between their teeth, and other
boyish tricks. Superintendent Ramsey is
as much down on this as on actual haz
ing, for tho cadets are apt to forget where
guying ends and brutality begins.
A DENIAL OF C1IAKUES.
I seo by the last issue of the Pacific
Journal certain charges against John
"Wood, charging him with stealing tira
bor from school lands on the south fork
of the Nasel river. These charges I know
to be utterly false, and entirely without
foundation, and I believe made, at this
time, for political effect alone. During
the summer of 1S33, the time alluded to
by the Journal, I was foreman of Mr
Wood's camp at that place, nnd under
strict instructions, from Mr. Wood, to be
very careful and not cross the lino in cut
ting timber, and can state positively that
not a log was cut, as charged by the
Journal, upon section 1G, by any man in
Mr. Wood's employ. I am perfectly fa
miliar with the lines in that vicinity, and
have no hesitation in making affidavit to
this statement. I will aLso state, that
every log cut was scaled upon the bank,
and duly credited to Everett Bumham.
The dam, built upon section 1G, en
hances tho value of that section many
hundred dollars, and has done no mate
rial damage whatever.

Utica, Oct 28. A private meeting of
Conkling stalwarts of this city has been
held, and it has leaked out that the sub
jects under consideration were the issu
ing of an address recounting the griev
ances of the signers on account of Blaine
and his friends here in Conkling's old
homo, and the possibility of getting the
ex-senator to speak against Blaine be
fore the canvass closes. Tho address it
is semi-officially said, is signed by sixty
names. It goes into tho history of Re
publican politics in Onoida county since
about 18m, when the stalwarts claim
Conkling's opponents beat a Mr. Gridly
for tho state senate. The stalwarts claim
900 in Oneida county who will either
