"On with the dance, let joy be nncon

merry motto of the Olympic Gymnasium
club on the occasion of their first annual
ball at Liberty hall last evening. .Every
one present had a good time, and the
Astoria Ladies' Coffee club furnished a
fine supper. The club comprises some of
the best young men of the city, and has
won its way to popular favor, as was
abundantly manifested last evening.
The Clatsop Bod and Gun club held a
meeting at the office of T. S. Jewett last
evening, at which it was decided to start
on the annual hunt this evening. ' A

Supplies are to be brought along, and the

membership, and we expect to hear of
Thero is a pack of itinerant peddlers
that infest this city, greatly to the dam
age of our merchants. They sell all sorts
of truck, from a hairpin to a roll of car
pet. Their favorite dodge is to go to a
private residence and get the folks to be
lieve that what they've got is "smuggled."
If they can onoe get the inmates to be
lieve that what they offer for sale is
"smuggled," they can work off almost
any kind of rubbish. The fact that they
continue to annoy people shows that they
must meet with encouragement, or else
they would quit and go away. They are
a nuisance, and ought to bo severely let
alone, if nothing else.

Tho Fleetwood arrivod down yesterday
afternoon with the Astoria delegation
that had participated in tho Democratic
celebration at Portland last Wednesday
evening. They report that such a pro
cession was never seen in Portland be
fore. Something less than 4,000 men
marched in the procession which was
over a mile long. Thero were ten brass
bands, loud sounding cannon, trans
parencies, torchlights, red fire, rockets
and the greatest enthusiasm. Tho Asto
ria delegation was cheered the loudest of
any and marched 102 in number in the
place of honor. Everybody had a first
rate time, and no unpleasantness of any
kind resnlted. The streets wore full of
neople and after the procession there
were speeches and congratulations over
the returns from New York.

The case of Wells, Fargo & Co. vs the
Northern Pacific Railroad Company
was decided in the United States Circuit
court, yesterday, in favor of the express
company. Wells-Fargo sued tho North
ern Pacific, some time since,to compel the
latter to allow it equal privileges on its
main and branch lines with other ex
press companies. Judge Deady, in de
ciding the case, ordered that the defend
ant bB required to furnish ordinary
iaciimes to wens, rargo uo. on its
line between Oregon and St. Paul, nnd
also on its connecting lines and links,
wherever they may be. Tho order also
directs that Wells, Fargo & Co. be giveu
the same facilities to transact its busi
ness as is furnished to any other express
company. Wells, Fargo & Co. will have
to give a bond for 2T,C00, which will
have to be approved by -one of the officers
of tho Northern Pacific as a guarantee
for all costs, charges and dampges which

Tho matter of federal appointments
is ono of considerable interest all over
the Union at present. Hero in Astoria
the crumbs aro few and the idea in the
minds of many is that whatever little
official pickings there aro will be given
to some importation. The name of John
Hobson has among others, been mention
ed in connection with the position of
collector of tho port. Ho is a man that
always "stood in" in the days of defeat,
has put up his coin and run for office
when he had no moro show of success
than a cat in hades without claws, and
deserves recognition. C. H. Page is al
so mentioned as a man who would de
servedly fill the bill. As for postmaster
tho list of names mentioned in connec
tion with the office is so long that pres
ent mention would b9 invidious. There
is more probability of tho postmaster
using an Astonan than any other federal
appointment in the place.

POLITICS A5D POLITICIANS.
A great political campaign liko tho ono
just closed is a distinct and important
chapter added to history. There aro in
fluences in such a contest that touch tho
fundamental facts of government, and
that reach forward to times nnd problems
of which people now living can have no
conception. "When wo elect a president
wo do something of world-wide and per
manent interest, and contributo to the
story of civilization and of tho progress
of nations certain material that is in the
nature of things gravely and continuously
valuable. It would seem to follow that
the men Engaged prominently in this sort
of history-making should bo securo
against forgetfulness and retain a defi
nite and denoting relation always to tho
record of events which they were largely
instrumental in bringing about. Bat in
reality such is not the case. Personal
fame fades and disappears, while general
facts and results are carefully preserved;
and he is an uncommonly fortunate man
in politics whose name survives after
him for a single generation.
There havo been not a few men of su
perior ability and effectiveness in Ameri
can politics at every period of our nation
al existence men whose leadership was
absolute and whose popularity was un
questioned and complete; and yet how
many of them aro to-day remembered in
any truo nnd sound sense? Wo doubt if
the average citizen can give the names
of tho prominent politicians of any dec
ade back of his personal experience nnd
observation, to say nothing of whatthey
did and in what manner they impressed
themselves upon the affairs of the time.
Very few of us could tell on tho spur of
tho moment who have been candidates
forjpresident and vice-president in tho
various elections since tho foundation of
tho government; and certainly it would
puzzlo tho best posted to name the prin
cipal cabinet ohicers or ministers to for
eign countries undor tho different admin
istrations. Besides Webster, Clay, Cal
houn and Benton, how many statesmen
of tho first half of the present century
can be said to havo gained enduring rep
utations? And how many of the latter
half of tho century are likely to ba uum
be ed with the great, fifty years from
Ono of the most unmistakable lessons
of history is that political distinction is n
possession of singular uncertainty, nnd
that political success costs more and
counts for less than any other in tho
world. So much depends on circumstan
ces, upon fluctuations of popular senti
ment and accidents of time and place,
that tho man who follows such a career
can never be sure of his footing and nev
er safe as to his calculations. One day
he is carried on the shoulders of an ad
miring constituency, and the next day
perhaps he is scourged with curses and
burned in effigy. However able and pru
dent he may be, he is bound to make
mistekes, and mistakes in 'politics are
promptly and sharply visited with pun
ishment. When he triumphs he invites
envy, and when he is beaten he provokes
derision. The power that comes to him
when he gets into office is just as apt to
prove a detriment as an advantage; and
yet without power he can command no
touowing, anu unless ue Keeps nimseu in
office he loses his connection with the
practical side of affairs and passes out of
The man who has made a business of
politics for any considerable length of
time will readily admit that he has not
found it satisfactory, nnd that it would
have been better for him if he had chos
en some other occupation. At best, the
profit is so unequally proportioned to the
effort that it does not pay in any respect.
The same amount of labor, care and per
severance applied to ordinary profession
al pursuits or business enterprises could
not fail to yield abundant and gratifying
returns. No one knows this better than
the man who seeks office and wears him
self out in soliciting votes and manipu
lating caucuses and conventions; but it
rarely occurs to him to make personal
use of the lesson. Once a politician al
ways a politician is the rule. Thero
seems to be a fascination in tho matter
which tho victim is powerless to resist or
breakaway from. Tho number of in
stances where men have voluntarily quit
politics iz very small; and in every com
munity can be found those who insist up
on following that kind of life long after
there has ceased to be the vaguest chance
for them to derive any benefit from it.
It is every man's right and privilege to
accept an official trust; it may indeed be
come his duty to do so. The caso is very
different, however, when a man sets out
to make a trade of office-seeking, or when
he acquires such a taste for that sort of
thing that he is unfitted for anything
else. Thero are men in plenty all over
the country who make themselves felt in
politics, and render good service to their
parties, without becoming so infatuated
with the turmoil, excitement and maneu
vering that it turns their heads and dis
qualifies them for legitimate pursuits.
Such men are politicians of a proper and
desirable kind, and their example is wor
thy of imitation. Every citizen is under
obligation to assert himself in behalf of
what ho believes to be correct and whole
some political principles, and to give
practical and earnest aid to the party
which ho thinks should be intrusted with
the control of the government. No fault
is to be found with the man who stands
up for his convictions; and no harm can
come to him by reason of so doing.
It is only when he makes politics a regu
lar trade, nd not merely an incident of
his life, that he is in danger of being de
moralized and undone and against that
danger every citizen should carefully
guard who does not wish to fill his days
with endless anxiety and tribulation, for
which he can not possibly obtain a suffi
cient and satisfactory reward.
