deserves well at the hands of tho dispen

struck by a squall and partially dismast

to Astoria, but the captain concluded to
make San Francisco and proceeded on
his course. The Pioneer sued for salvage.
The suit has been compromised by the
owners of tho Nebo paying the owners of
tho Pioneer $3500, each party paying its
own legal costs. This doesn't leave
much for the servioo of the tug.
Everyone that has been around much,
has, sometime in his life, met someone
who had long beard or long hair, or both,

have been some hero and there who neg
lected their personal appearance in tho
same way until the election of a Demo

from various quarters of men whose mil
lenium has at last arrived and who are
now submitting their hair to the barber
after years of patient waiting.

Democrats and Bepublicans alike show
considerable interest in "tho matter of
presidential appointments and though
the offices in this state are very few, and
those that aro to be filled not very remu
nerative, still there is enough in them to
mako the matter one of interest to a good
many. Hero in Astoria there is the col
lector of the port, an offico that is worth
$3,000 a year: two deputies, an inspector,
a postmaster, etc., all the Federal patron
age being not worth over $12,000 a year.
It is to bo hoped that whoover are ap
pointed shall be Astorians, men that are
our fellow citizens, and not importations,
though it is not likely that such will be
the case. One who is well posted on this
matter of political appointments says:
"Cleveland can unquestionably make
just such changes as he wishes in the per
sonnel of the civil service. In what are
known as presidential appointments in
other words, those that must be con-
nrmed by the United States Senate; the
commissions read as though they would
hold good for a certain number of years;
but tho fact is that as the law now stands,
these commissions may be revoked at
the president's pleasure. So long as the
senate is in session, he cannot remove
one man from office, without cause, until
tho senate confirms tho successor. But
between tho sessions of congress the pres
ident may remove anv man and asnoint
his successor, subject to subsequent con
firmation by the 6enate. Should the lat
ter body refuso to confirm, or take no
action in me matter, m tne lirst case tho
president would report a now candidate
to them, and in the latter case, as soon
as tho senate had adjourned ho would
have to appoint another temporary in
cumbent. In no ovunt, however, would
the originally displaced man bo entitled
to resume tho office. As to tho small fry,
who aro directly appointed by tho chiefs
of their branches of the service, tho ten
ure of office depends nominally upon
their good conduct and intelligent per
formance of duty, but, as tho question
of thoir efficiency and behavior is subject
to tho judgment of tbeiftimmediate supe
riors, you can readilv imagine that va
cancies can be created as rapidly as need
ed. Tho natural result must be that
there will be an entire change in all tho
departments of tho government. Almost
all the principal offices, and a vast num
ber of the smaller ones, will bo immedi
ately filled by Democrats; but the exi
gencies oi governmont will prevent
anything like a total change during the
first year of tho new administration, as
in every branch of the service a certain
number of skilled clerks must bo retain
ed in order to keep the work running
smooiuiy. uv uegrees these men can be
replaced, and they will all bo replaced
long before the closo of tho administra
Oregon occupies a unique position in
regard to Federal appointments. It is
customary for souio senator or represen
tative who is of the same political faith
as tho president to have a good deal to
say about who should receive tho ap
pointments in his state, but Oregon will
navo no congressman to mako any such
suggestions. uieTeianu win do inaugu
rated the day after Senator Slater's term
expires. Just at present it is not exact
ly settled whether the next Oregon legis
lature will elect Sol Hirsch or Henry
railing 10 tne uniteu states senate, but
it -will certainly be some Republican who
with Senator DoIdU and Congressman
Herrman will represent Oregon at Wash
ington. Then again there are a good
many New York and New Jersey men
ana oiuers rrom eisowneae to be provid
ed for. Theso two reasons, coupled with
the fact that Orecon went 2.300 Beirab-
lican and Clatsop county went 200 Be-
puMican, are why we think that in the
coming distribution of cakes and' ale,
resident Democrats will be made to
stand aside, though it is one of tho occa
sions when we would be pleased to be
Ditmned at Uanthora's Dock.
Louis Lckert, a German, aged 25, fell
from a scow at Hanthorn's cannery at
holf-past three yesterday morning and
was drowned. He was employed by An
drew Schnriug to unload wood, and had
but lately come down from the Cceur
d'Alene mines. He and his partner had
been employed unloading wood for Han
thorn at flood tide, after which Eckert
lay down to rest. At half-past three ho
was awakened to hold a ladder, while his
comrade went up on tho dock for a lan
tern. While looking for tho lantern a
splash and a groan was heard, and noth
ing more was seen of the unfortunate
young man. A strong ebb tide was run
ning, and the only hope of recovering
tho body is that it may drift shore
ward. Ho was a member of Castle Lodge

lots, in Upper Astoria, will bo sold by E.
C. Holden at public auction. Each lot is
75 x 150 feet, and on the corner lot is a
very desirable family residence, with con
venient outhouses. Perhaps it is not a
good time to sell valuable real estate at
auction, but as this property is to be sold
on account of the owner changing resi
dence to another state, some one will
have a chance to make a good bargain.

Tho beginnings of organization in so
ciety are always interesting. There is no
more attractive period in Bhode Island
history than when, in 1678 '79, tho prin
ciple of individual sovereignty in town-
meetings began to be carried out, and by
pioneer methods startlingly similar to
thoso used almost exactly two centuries
later in the heart of Oregon. From
Portsmouth and Newport to tho valley of
the Willamette is a long jeurney: and
yet, it is not withont reason that tho
comparison has boon made, for in the life
of tho early Bhodo Island settlements we
can clearly discern tendencies equally
manifest in the early life of .the Pacific
Coast. When the Portsmouth settlers,
in 1S40, adopted the principle of compul
sory arbitration, they resorted to a plan
familiar two hundred and ten years later
to the miners of the free mining camps
of central California and southern Ore
gon. The town of Providence, Bhodo
Island, had no nucleus of government.
Equality and individuality prevailed;
men lived together withont law, as they
did in tho mining camp3 of T3t8. Con
trol of affairs by tho voice of f raemen in
town-meetings (whose typo is the ancient
Folk-moot), then local officers elected,
and representative governmont were tho
natural step3 of progress in Oregon of
tho nineteenth century as in Bhode Inland
of tho seventeenth.
One can hardly speak of Oregon with
out somo allusion to the history of Mr.
Barrows (second volume of Common
wealth Series), whioh. although a re
markable generalization of the great na
tional issues involved in tho struggle for
tho northwest, is in some respects disap
pointing. It lacks just tho ono chapter
upon the earliest attempts at political
organization that every student of Amer
ican institutions must desire. Tho fol
lowing notes are not so much an attempt
to supply that lack as to call attention to
the fact that local government in Oregon
antedated the famous "Wolf Meeting,"
of which Mr. Barrows makes brief men
In 1838, eleven years beforo Oregon
was created a territory, and twenty-one
years before sho was admitted into the
Union, the few American settlers in tho
beautiful Willamette valley began to or
ganize. They numbered less than fifty
men, but they elected a justice of the
peace, and agreed to support his decis
ions. In 1840 they petitioned congress
for a territorial government. They then
numbered about ono hundred persons.
Tho next year tho settlers again met to
draft a code of laws. They elected Dr
Babcock, the missionary, as supreme
judge. Several justices were elected,
half American, half Canadian. Some of
tho English settlers helped. The Hudson
bay fur company was bitterly hostile.
The settlers' movement did not dare to
attempt to elect any legislative assembly,
nor governor or executive officer. They
called their organization a "temporary
civil compact." All this took place be
fore 1843, in which year, Mr. Barrows
says that civil government began.
In 1843, the settlers, still numbering
about ono hundred, formed a debating
olub, and discussed this questien: "Shall
Oregon become a free and independent
state, neither British nor American?"
Tho same year they started a circulating
library, and sent to Boston for three
hundred volumes of history and litera
ture no novels.
But tho political feature of this year
was the settlers' "Wolf Organization."
They sent around notices and assembled
to pass local laws to raise taxes, so that
bounties might bo paid for destroying
wolves, bears, and catamounts, then fall
ing their cattle and sheep Americans
called the meeting, but many Canadians
attended. Tho only object of tho meet
ing was as stated. 'Suddenly an Ameri
can spoke np: "If we can protect our
herds by common action, why can't we
protect ourselves?" and ho offered a res
olution which was immediately carried
that a committee of twelve bo appointed
to take into consideration the civil and
military condition of the colony. The
Canadians retired; the Americans went
ahead. Tho "Wolf Committee" met in
March and again May 2d, , at Willamette
Falls, and their plan of government,
when offered to the people was adopted
by a voto of fifty-two to hf ty. The Amer
icans had but two majority over the Ca
nadians, all of whom voted. They then
withdrew again, and the Americans chose
a supreme judge, giving him probate
Siwers, a sheriff and minor officers,
ost important, they elected a legislative
committee of nino men, three of them
missionaries, and all Americans; and tho
executive power was vested in a superior
committee of three persons equal in
power. Tho justices of tho peace, con
stables, etc., were partly Canadians; the
military officers, three captains and a
major, were Americans. Jjy this time
the number of settlers had greatly in
creased; late in 1843 the rash began and
by the close of 1844 tli6re were 3,000
Americans in Oregon.
Immediately after the election of chief
council nnd legislature, these bodies met
to provide a code. It had been ordained
by the people, acting in their original
capacity, that the session should not ex
coed six days. In point of fact only four
days were taken; thoy fixed their own
salaries at $1.25 per day, an interesting
contrast to the first constitutional con
vention of California, which, in 1849,
fixed the salaries of its members at $23
The Uregon settlers code of laws was
adopted by the people in legislative com
mittee of tho whole, in grand "Folk-
moot," on tho 4th of July, 1843, after
loud and long verbal discussions. There
were ten districts made. The various
articles related to liberty of conscience,
civil rights, establishment of schools,
protection of Indians, land laws, weights
ana measures, no slavery, etc. The sov
ereign people then appointed a commit
tee to draw up a full report and send it
to congress, urging a territorial erant.
But it was five long years before the set
tlement of the Uregon question enabled
congress to come to the settlers' aid.
Not till August, 1848, did tho bill pass,
ana not tiu juarcn, lmy, were the nio-
neors of Oregon relieved from the burden
oi maintaining, singie-nanaea ana aione,
their own civil and judicial government.
In 1844 an Indian war broke out and
troop3 were raised. That year, too, the
people at an election called by the legis
lature abolished tho council of three,
choso a single executive, and made some
changes in the codo and in tho minor
offices of the quasi-territory. Tho treas
urer's report for 1844 shows that the re
ceipts of government were $358.31, while
the expenditures were $342.S3 an exam
ple of pioneer economy of which tho old
Web-foot state may well be proud. They
spend a little more than that on a west

Emanuel gave him $31.75 change nnd the
man skipped off. The check was cashed
by L W. Case yesterday, who on learning
that it was a forgery, sent the check back
to Emanuel who refunded the money.
The signature is entirely unlike Mr.
Berry's handwriting, and is a clumsy at
tept at forgery. Telegrams wero sent to
Portland and Kalama, and a dispatch
was received from the latter point last
evening, stating that a man had been ar
rested there and asking for further de
scription. So far Emanuel is out the
