A bill which has'passed and been signed
by the governor to prevent carrying con
cealed weapons, prohibits anyone, out
side of an olncer of the law, to carry a
dirk, slungshot, daggor, pistol, knife, or
any instrument by use of which bodily
injury may be done. It provides that if
any one disobeys the provisions of the
act, that they be fined not less than 10
nor more than $200, or imprisoned in the
county jail not less than five nor more
than 100 days. Justices of the peace
have jurisdiction over such cases. The
law is not in force until ninety days after
its passage. It only costs $2.50 to carrv
a revolver. In Astoria the tax is &5. No
credentials are required; just the finan

President Cleveland Inaugurated.
CONGRESS PASES THE BILL RETIR
ING GENERAL GRANT.
l'utdicttldi or Dlspatche SujjpreueJ
Wisnisorox, March 4. One hundred
thousand people were in the vicinity of
the capitol to-day at the hour of Presi
dent Cleveland's inauguration. The
programme of arrangements was carried
oat as nearly as possible. At 10:15 the
doors of the senate wing of the capitol
were opened. Shortly after eleven the
doors of the senate chamber were opened.
President-elect Cleveland and Vice Presi
dent elect Hendricks entered the senate
wing by the bronze doors in the east
front. Here they were formally intro
duced to the committee of arrangements,
after which Mr. Hendricks proceeded to
the senate chamber, where Senator Ed
munds, president of the senate pro term,
administered to him the oath of office.
All the foreign ministers and their at
taches assembled in the marble room and
proceeded from there to the senate cham
ber, where were gathered the supreme
court, the cabinet, Generals Sheridan,
Sherman and Hancock, nava! officers; the
governors of Virginia, Pennsylvania.
Delaware, Maryland and other digni
taries, together with both house3 of con
gress. A procession wis then formed by
tho marshal of tho district of Columbia
through the rotunda to tho platform in
tho central part of the capitol. L'pon
reaching the portico, after a short inter
mission, Chief Justica Morrison R. Waite
administered the oath of office to Presi
dent Cleveland, who read his inaugural,
after which he proceeded to the executive
mansion, where he reviewed live miles of
a procession from tho grand stand.

London, March t. The disjmtches isnt
by Charles Williams, special correspond
ent of the Cable Xcivs, from Abu Klea
last month, and suppressed by General
Wolseley, are published to-day. They
give tho most grajihic and unbiased de
scription of General Stewart's battle at
Auu iviea, on January io, wmcauan yet
found its way to London. ThiB is the
battle in which Colonel Fred Burnaby
was killed, and m which the British
squaro was broken by the Arab3. The!
military explanation hitherto made of
the breaking of the square was that it
was accomplished by the xxabs by sheer
weight of numbers. Tho report of Mr.
Williams throws a now light upon the
occurrence, lie says tho disaster was
caused by an unauthorized order given
by Colonel Burnaby for tho dismounted
cavalry forming part of one side of the
square to advance to meet the charge of
tho Arab spearmen. Colonel Burnaby
gallantly led this advance and was killed.
In the hand to hand fight that ensued,
the cavalrymen were swept back, and the
Arab.s, swarming all around them, forced
their way into the square through the gap
left by the cavalrymen's advance. It
was a plucky movement, and Colonel
uurnaDV expiaieu me qusuiku m juuk
ment which prompted it, but it terribly
imperiled the aafety of the whole force

To the Cleieland and Hendrieks (.'id of
Gestlemjs: In tbeirooedings of your
meeting la-t evening, published in this
morning's Astouixs, 1 find among other
resolutions adopted by the club, the fol fel fol
eowing: "Resolved, That we deprecate to the
claim of Mr. Dickinson for the jics ticn
of postmaster of Astoria."
If 1 understand this resolution cor
recti v, it not only places me in a false
light, but is an implied misrepresentation
of my views in regard to appointments
to office. I deem it proper, therefore, to
say that I am not now nor ever have been
a claimant for auy office whatever. I
have always been the uncompromising
advocate of the democratic principle an
nounced by President Pierce in his iu
augural address, that a claim to office
should never be recognized in n repub
lican government. I am a Democrat
from principle and not for place. If,
however, the president shall be pleased,
in deference to the wishes of the people
of Astoria, both Democrats and Repub
licans, shall be pleased to appoint me to
the position of postmaster, I shall accept
it with proper acknowledgements as an
expression of his confidence, but not as
a recognition of any claim on my part,
nor as a reward for any services rendered.

Mr. C. W. Burrage, the well-known
pioneer surveyor,says the Ouyoniaii, has
made a Fmall but very good collec
tion of Oregon woods in lhe rough,
to be shipped this week to the expo
sition at New Orleans together with
other exhibits. They were spen yester
day at Ash street wharf by -a reporter of
this paper. Following is a partial list of
Five sections of Abies Doujlatii, or
yellow fir. They were cut from a tree 240
feet in height at distances'- of 50 feet.
The first section is from near the ground,
and measures 52 inches in diameter in
side of the bark. The second section, 50
feet from the ground, is 47 inche3 in di
ameter; the third 100 feet, 35 inches;

The first limb was 103 feet from the
ground. Professor G. H. Collier de
scribes this a3 ''our most common fir."
He gives as the maximum altitude 300
feet and the maximum diameter 141 in
ches. This is the principal timber of
western Oregon and Washington. Most
of the lumber shipped from the Colum

th world is of this variety. The timber
is the strongest known in proportion to
There are ten spraco bolts from which
shakes nre made. The tree from which
tho bolts were taken was 5G inches in di
ameter at the stamp. At 100 feet above
the ground tho diameter was 43 inches,
at 200 feet 23 inches, at 210 feet 10 inches.
The portion above that point broke up
so badly when the tree fell that it could
not be measured. There are also two
large spruce bolts, with tho bark on, that
run to the heart of the tree. A hecliou
of the sauio tree, one foot square, with
tho bark on either end, is shown, the di
ameter of the stump being D2 inches.

lilll Xye ill How to JUle IMii-t Enter
t&luln;. There are certain suggestions and notes
relativo to the manner of jlaying tho
modern, scientific game of whist, which
we do not find in the dry rules laid down
by onr best writers. While they tell us
the mechanical ojsfrationsof plttvmgand
how to make the mast oi tho cards held,
they do not tell us what sinail task
should be inserted lotwt-en hands in
ordsr to lighten the sombre rojtiue of
play. For iustance. should the deal

ted such suggestions as these, and 1 have
taken the responsibility of naming a few.
Should you wish to gain the esteem and
admiration of your partner and other
lovers of whist, occasionally ask," What's
trump?'' and yawn, so that the players
may admire the filling in your wisdom
teeth. This shows your intense interest
iu the game and gives your partner per
fect faith and childlikeconfideuccin vour
Tho gams may be greatly enhanced by
tho hesitation of a player when a new
suit is introduced, and his bright, crisji
and original remark that he'll be hanged
if he remembers whether the ace of that
has b3eii played or not.
This will show every one that an all
wise Providence, seeing that you wouldn't
know what to do with an intellect if yoa
had it. saw fit to give yours to a cow.
If your adversaries gain the rubber and
ono of them docs tho scoring, make the
remark that it is half in counting, and
suggest that yon will keep the liooks
yourself hereafter. The joke is still in
good repair, and yon can now get it with
your jMck of cards and counters of any
iirst-class dealer. Tho game of whist is
very much brightened up by these re
marks, and I wonld no sooner think of
getting whist cards, etc., without secur

her that you aro a gentleman and that
you know more about the game of whist
thnn you do about common decency.
Tho blood of but ono human being is
upon my hands. It is the blood of a
man who played whist against me one
evening and scolded his partner until
the tears came into her beautiful eyes.
He claimed that he had right to do so' be

make any difference with the coroner's
jury. She makes a mighty fine widow,

There aro two kinds of brute verte

wears clothes and makes money and in
sists in coming indoors and playing whist
and abusing his partner. One hangs by
his tail to a forest tree and behaves him
self; the other hangs by his nurse-string
to decent society and makes himself ob
noxious. Should vour mind wander while playing
the game of whist, so that you'fooli.shly
throw away a trick, third" hand, take
back your card and substitute another,
laughing merrily all tho time. Your re
