Notice To Advertisers.
Titk Astop.tax Runrantees to its ad
vertisers the largest circulation of any
newspaper published on the Columbia
river.
Last day of tho legislature.
The Columbia arrives to-dpy.
The Orisedale haa arrived out.
Samuel Elmore and family are on the
incoming steamer.
A popular vote in Astoria would elect
Mitchell senator by a large majority.
The choir of the Congregation church
"will hold their regular rehearsal this
evening.
A substantial addition has been made
to Wilson & Fisher's dock at which the
Telephone will land.
The O. R. & J. Co. announces the low
rate of one dollar a ton on wheat from
all points on tho Willamette to Portland.
This knocks the backbone out of the op
position but temporarily benefits the
raisers of tho valley.
Frank Surprenant started from Fort
Stevens last Wednesday afternoon in a
row boat, but one of his oars breaking,
he went drifting toward the bar. The
crew of tho Geo. S. Homer rescued him.
It was a narrow escape.
No word was received, yesterday from
Salem regarding the election of pilot
commissioners, but it is very probable
that Capt. Allan Noyes and Louis Wilson
of this city and J. A. Brown, of Portland
were elected.
N. Johansen. of upper Astoria, was one
of a picked bodyguard of thirty-five men,
who accompanied General Gordon in his
operations against the Tai-pings in China
in 18C3. Mr. Johansen says that he was
tho bravest and coolest man he ever saw.
A bill to give the Columbia bridge com
pany the right to build across the Wil
lamette river between Portland and East
Portland has been passed by tho senate.
The structure will cost in the neighbor
hood of 100,000, and will have a 100-foot
draw.
According to to the now city directory
the population of the city of Portland
proper is 33,000. This not including the
Chinese who number 2,000, nor doe3 it
take into consideration East Portland
or Albina, which would swell the total
to 43,000.
Henry Failing: John H. Mitchell: Sol
Hirsch one of these three will bo elected
I nited States senator at Salem to-day,
w th their chances in tho order named.
Party majority entitles Hirsch to the elec
tion; a popular vote would give it to
Mitchell, but Henry Failing will bo likely
t j capture the prize.
The Oregon is advertised to sail for
San Francisco to-day. Among other
things she takes 15,000 sacks of potatoes
to California, tho largest shipment ever
made. Oregonians are getting half a
oent a pound, and tho shippers figure
that at San Francisco prices they can
clear 1 cents n bushel. This is close
figuring.
A dispatch received from Salem lost
evening says: "Hirsch, 29; R. 13. Cochran,
31; Williams, 1C; Watson, 2; Boise, C;
George, 1; Carson, 1. Tho contest is get
ting interesting. Salem is crowded with
poople from ail parts of the state. The
tug of war begins in earnest at noon to
morrow." Owing to the unceasing rain the pro
posed parade of Astoria Division No.
One. Uniform Rank, K, of P., did not
take place yesterday afternoon. The
lodge met, initiated some new members
and elected the following efficers: A. E.
Shaw, C: J. W. Hume, L. C: F. L. Par
ker, H.; S. Bozorth, R.; H. F. Prael, T.;
G. W. Woods, G.; J. A. Davidson. S.; Jay

A stage was upsot in Applegate oreek
in southern Oregon the other day by a
rush of salmon. The horses were cut
loose and the driver escaped on their
backs, Tho salmon crowded the river
from bank to bank and the school was
over a mile long. Hundreds of them
jumped out upon the banks and wriggled
around until they died. The farmers of
Applegate are feeding their hogs upon
the fish, and dozens of the farmers' boys
are spearing the salmon for fun.
Yosterday, "says th6 Tacomn Netcsot
the 13th, a term of tho district oourt,
Judge Greene presiding, was held on
board the stoamer Wilmington while
that vessel was on the way from La Con
nor to Seattle. It appears that just after
the oourt had adjourned for the term,
two men accused of murder were taken
to La Connor. The sheriff was direoted
to put the prisoners on board the Wil
mington, where court was opened in due
form and an examination took place.
Thomon were acquitted. This is the
first instance within our knowledge of a
term of court being held on a steamboat
at sea.

THK TTOMAS SUFFRAGE BILL LOST.
In tho state senate last Wednesday,
Siglin's woman suffrage bill came up un
der special order. Davenport did not be
lieve in the constitution taking away the
rights of hnlf of its citizens; did not be
lieve in vested rights; believed all power
was inherent in tbe people, and as part
of the poople women should have the
right of suffrage.
Lee felt in honor bound to heed the
voice of his constituents, who had de
clared their will at the last election upon
this question.
Siglin should vote for this bill, because
it was just and right. There was no
constitutional inhibition against such
measure. He believed men were cowards
who would not honestly face this subject.
He thought his daughter had as much
right to vote as the man who blacked his
boots; believed in keeping paco with hu
man progress, and though others, might,
he would not anchor his faith to the
dead past.
Haines explained that his constituents
had voiced their sentiments upon this
question, and ho would not change by
his vote their verdict.
Hare believed women could vote under
the constitution but they should go to
the courts for redress. He voted against
the bill, against the earnest appeal of his
wife and daughter.
The vote of the bill stoed: Ayes Bil
yeu, Carson, Cartwright, Davenport,
Hall, Hirsch, Hoult, Miller, Siglin, and
Voorhees 10. Nays Allen, Burch, Cau
thorn, Coleman, Dorris, Emmitt, Haines,
Hare, Lee, Myers, Pennington, Prim,
Reed, Riuehart, Shupe, Simon, Weather
ford and Waldo 18. Warren and Wil
liams were absent.

Another Jftn "Behind the Tlae."
"Anti-monopoly legislation" reached
high water mark in the new pilot bill de
vised to "free the Columbia river bar''
from monopoly. It takes $10,000 out of
the treasary to keep up a little sail boat
that will be of no use whatever, and will
cost tho wheat growers of the state many
times this sum in increased rates of pi
lotage. The sail pilot boat can't bring
a vessel in, and both her pilot and the
tug pilot will have to be paid by the ship.
This will come out of the wheat crop, of
course. Your anti-monopoly legislator,
when he gets right down to his work,
can do fearful and wonderful things.

WHERE IS THE MOSEY
The balance of trade has been in favor
of the United states for sight years past,
during which we as a nation have lived
within our means and have saved twelve
hundred million dollars. During the
same eight years not less than six hun
dred million dollars of gold and silver
have been dug out of the ground, and
been added to all the other hundreds of
millions in the country prior to 1877.
Including these three sources, it may be
reasonably stated that the United States
ought to be ahead now at least $5,500,
000,000 in coin, and would be were it not
for tho payment of debts owed by our
people in Europe. It is hard to believe,
though, that anything like the amount
above named has gone for that purpose,
or the half of it, and the supposition is
probably a good one that there is now in
the country not far from $1,500,000,000
in gold and silver. This is a sum beyond
comprehension, but it is no more so than
it is beyond comprehension where all the
money has gone. 'With a record like the
foregoing one would think that all the
channels of trade should be gorged with
money, and that the people under such
circumstances would have entered upon
a career of enterprise and speculation,
or of extravagance, unparalleled in his
torv. Such is not the case, however.
On'tae contrary it has been a long time
since such caution in business and such
general economy has been witnessed as
as boeu the rule of the American people
during the past twelve months, and, we
may say, taking the people as a whole,
during the past twelve years. Tho result
has been the formation of a national
habit of economy, rigid almost to a fault,
which cannot be shaken off or hanged
for years to come, and which must end
in the accumulation of wealth beyond
all past report or conception.

Dynamite is prepared by simply knead
iug with the Baked hand3 twenty-five per
cent of infusorial earth and soventy-five
of nitro-glycerine until the mixture as
sumes a putty condition, not unlike
moist brown sugar. Before mixing the
infusorial earth is calcined in a furnace
in order to burn out all organic matter,
and it is also sifted to free it of large
grains. "While still moist it is squeezed
into cartridges, which are prepared of
parchment paper, and the firing i3 done
by fulminate of silver in copper capsules
provided with patent exploders.
Nitro-glycerino is made of nitric acid
one part and sulphuric acid two parts, to
which is added ordinary glycerine, and
the mixture is well washed with pure
water. The infusion is composed of
small, microscopic silicious shells which
have lost their living creatures. The
cellular parts receive the nitro-glycerine
and hold it by capillary attraction, both
inside and out. The eirth is very light.
Water is expelled from it by means of a
furnace, and then in the form of a ikw
der it is mixed with nitro-glycerie. Nitro
glycerine has a sweet, aromatic, pungent
taste and tli6 peculiar property of caus
ing a violent heudache when placed in a
small quantity on the tongue or wrist.
It freezes at forty degrees Fahrenheit,
becoming a white, half-crystalized mass,
which must bo melted by the application
of water at a temperature of about 100
degrees Fahrenheit.

A case of interest to wholesale mer
chants was decided by the supreme court
Tuesday. It was the case of Atwood
against Martin, sheriff of Umatilla coun
ty, and others, appealed from Umatilla
county. Briefly told it is a3 follews:
Tho stock of one Donaca, a general mer
chandise dealer at Contcrville, Umatilla
county, was attached by Portland cred
itors in January, 1834, for sums aggregat
ing about $10,000. Donaca confessed
judgment, and in due course of timo the
sheriff took possession of the property
and began making preparations to sell
it to satisfy the judgments. Donaca
owed about $8,000 in San Francisco, and
these creditors asked for an injunction
to prevent tho sheriff from selling the
property, on tho ground of alleged fraud
between Donaca and the Portland cred
itors. When tho case came up for trial
in the state circuit court the plaintiff did
not establish tho charge of fraud and
tho injunction was dissolved. Tho su
preme court affirmed the desision of the
lower court, and tho San Francisco cred
itors are "out and injured.' It was a
case of speed in securing claims, in which
Portland outran San Francisco and had
the law to protect them. Orejonian, 19.
In It IVot True?
There can be no argument as to the
qualities essential to a perfect remedy
for tho ills arising from a disordered or
inactive condition of the Liver, Stomach
and Bowels. Everyone will admit that it
should be perfectly safe for -old and
young of both sexes, at any and all
times; that it should be acceptable both
to the taste and the stomach; that it
should never fail to act promptly and
thoroughly, yet painlessly, and ttshould
give strength to those organs. It is now
well known that Syrup of Figs jx.sses
