W She gaity stomtt. ASTORIA, OREGON: SUNDAY- FEBRUARY 1. 1685 PrESIDENT-ELECT ClirVELAM) IS learning to dance. Twelve thousand invitations "will be sent out for the presidential inau guration ball. Amoxo tbe Arabs tbe belief is preva lent tbat washing tbe face is simply an indirect form of suicide. Gov. Squire of "Washington territory,- ill bis report to tbe secretary of tbe interior, urges strongly tbe rigbt and necessity of tbat territory's ad mission as a slate. A mopebti'-owker in Campbell count3 Ga., is said to have recently walked a distance of one hunderd miles to pay a las of four cents on a lot of "wild land." The Forty-eighth congress closes on tbe -1th of next month. Like all con gressional sessions just after a presi dential election all business has been controlled by politics. AJDemoorat in Plymouth, N. H., has a barrel of cider made in 18G0, which he has said should not be tap ped until there shall bo a Democratic president His friends will sample it on the 4th of March. Hirscii is gradually gaining. Yes terday's dispatches indicate that if he get seven voles more to-morrow he will be in tbe direct lino of election; twenty-sevon votes would be a major ity of tbe Republican members. Ox account of the want of interest thus far iu the New Orleans exposi tion, it is suggested that Ben Butler be sent there, and after receiving tbe freedom of the city and a gold snuff box, be placed on exhibition as a pres idential curiosity. The remains of workmen who died and were buried along tbe line of tbe Northern Pacific railway while it was building are now being exhumed, placed in coffins and buried in a finely laid out cemetary at Missoula, M. T., at tbe railway company's ex pense. A KEWsrArER correspondent at 2Jew Orleans writes tbat at one of the hotels, a rear room, four flights up, is invoiced at $3.50 per day, a life-preserving breakfast for S1.50, a dinner of moderate proportions $2.50. And yet it was announced that the hotels would not advance their rates. New York dudes wear colored shirts and cufis with white collars, and it is said that tho fashion began with British snobbishness. Tbe Prince of "Wales wore tbat kind of rig one day because his baggage miscarried and ho had no other, and tho nobility and gentry promptly and innocently followed suit. The London Army and Navy Ga zette , commenting upon tbe outbreak in Corea, refers to two strong reasons which Russia has for designing to extend southward her frontier to Corea, and urges England and Ameri ca, which both have large interests in Corea, to join with Japan in an en d aror lo frustralo the designs of Russia. John R. McLean runs the Cincin nati Inquirer. This is his idea of jeurnalism: "My business is to buy white paper at tho lowest market prico and manufacture it into an arti cle tbat will sell for five cents per sheet. If I make what tho people want, they buy and my profit is great. If I don't make what they want I get left "Well, I don't get left that's all." Shrewd observers believe tbat tbe ultimatum of Bismarck's policy is the demolition of the British Empire with a division of the spoils, which would give lo Russia, India; to France, Egypt and Hongkong, and to Germany, South Africa. There are others who see only a strategetic plan to pit tbe various powers against each other, and prevent combinations which might menace Germany. The San Francisco newspapers contain long accounts of the infa mous traffic going on there of selling white babies to Chinese. It is shown that.the business ib mainly carried on through the agency of private es tablishments termed "lying-in hospi tals and homes for foundlings. ' The matrons of these places charge $50, if tbe mother desires to keep the baby, -but only from $20 to $30 if the mother gives up all claim to it. In the latter case it becomes the proper ty of the .matron, who sells tbe baby over again to whoever she can find that will pay the most for it In this way many of these unfortunates have been sold to the Chinese. The latter payjnore for female babies than male ones. The Evening Post,' referring to the iniquitous practice of white mothers selling their illegitimate off spring to the Chinese says: "Wo are informed, upon tho very best author ity, that these children are pnrcbased in many cases by Chinese speculators, and sent to China, where they are raised until they are twelve years of age, and then sold to wealthy China men for large sums of momey, to be placed by them in their harems. One of the most dreadful phases of slave trading is going on in our midst, and if strong measures are not taken to stop it at once it will be a disgraco to our city and our civilization."
