else there will be trouble.

conveys a wrong impression. The salmon

used to command a fancy price in tho

LrsI week, says the AViw of the 11th,
an attempt was made to blackmail J. 35.
Kellogg by a letter stating that his actions
were known, and unless he paid hush
money his proceedings would be pub
lished. By means of n dummy check,
one of the blackmailers was decoyed
to the Occidental hotel and finally he
went to the Metropolitan Saings bank,
where he presented the check, which was
for $20, for payment. The cashier, in
order to gain time, made him indorse the
check, which ho did, ltoldly writing the
name of James Riley aerbsi the back.
Then the cashier said" it would be neces
sary for him to bo identified, and Mr.
Riley went out, but must hae ''smelt a
mouse' for ho did not return until last
evening, when he again made a demand
for tho money. The cashier at once ar
rested him and was hurrying him toward
the station. Riley begged and declared
that he was only a tool in the hands of
others. On promise of being allowed to
go free he made a clean breast of the
whole affair. He stated that the letter
sent to Mr. Kellogg had been written by
nn ex-journalist who is much given to in
toxicants, and that he (RilP3r had been
pulling the chestnuts out of the fire for
tho man who put up the job3. Riley was
allowed to go on this showing. The dis-
tnct attorney will investigate tho matter
and arrests will be made short ly. The
above was tho substance of the story as
related by Mr. Kellogg, the man whom
the ruffians attempted to blackmail.

The fourth iuuimI tournament of the
Oregon state firemen association will be
held in this city on the 10th of next June,
ud it is the intention of the Astoria fire

ploasure to hII who participate. At the
last meetings of the several companies
couiniitt.".-; won appointed to take the
matter in hand; these committees met in
joint sesiiou yesterday afternoon, and
after some preliminary discussion the
question was raise'd as to the
legal htandiug of the committees
regarding their methods of appoint
ment. It was finally decided to
disband and have a meeting of the board
of foremen who should appoint the com
mittees. Accordingly the board offoremen, the
chief engineer and the secretary of the
board ot fire delegates met at the rooms
of Alert H. and L. No. 1, last evening.
Chief Engineer Charters called the
meeting to order and after stating the
purpose for which the meeting was called,
it was moved and carried that the fore
man" of each company name a committee
of three, to constitute a committee of
nine, who would have full charge of all
matters regarding the part that the fire

ernor of Alaska shall, from time to time,

John 1". Miller, late president and now
stockholder of the Alaska commercial
company, whs fully coguijiut when the
Alaska bill was being considered, and on
its na.-sige through the senate last

of Alaska in search of a company that
does not exist, is ludicrously apparent.

congress was rep-trteJ by Senator Harri

where he has acouired u fortune in the

too, must have grimly smiled over his
old friend's joke.
lhe company whose oiteratious the
other unsuspectidg and utijokable l"ni
ted States senators intended should be
annually investigated by the governor of
Alaska is the Alaska commercial com
pany of San Francisco, familiarly known
as the Fur Seal ring, with its offices in
that city, and its paid agents iu this city
to watch and see that the operations of
congress do not interfere with their em

the Hon. Matt Carpenter, in written
opinions, pronounced unconstitutional

New Yobk, March 10. Reports that
President Arthur is worn out aud in ill
health, are entirely without foundation.
He is looking and feeling perfectly well,
and his accustomed serenity does not de
sert him.
St. Louis, March 10. Governor Mar
maduke has called on the malitia to go to
Sedalia, in Missouri, to a'd in suppressing
any trouble likely to arise thero to-day out
of the railroad strike. About ir0 officers
and men left here this morning.
KonTi, March 10. Natives arriving
here to-day report El ilabdi is leaving
Khartoum, as he fears to "be assassinated
by his many enemies, who are-sjealons of
his successes, and may take this mode of
doing away with their rival.
Dallas, Tex, March 10. The railroad
strike here is growing. All the trackmen
struck this afternoon and' not a wheel is
moving except the passenger trains.
Hundreds of cars of perishable goods are
side-tracked. Pablic sympathy is with
the strikers.
Saukim, M irch 10. Native Indian regi
ments have arrived and express contempt
for El Mahdi, and say no Mohammedan
believes iu him. They segm to bo greatly
elated over tho prospects of a Russian
war, nndsay tho Indian regiments will
be trebled in strength.
London, March 10. The Indian gov
ernment has notified tho war office that
in tho event of a war with Russia that
India will ask for 15.000 men from Eng
land. There is a marked display of de
votion to England among the "Moham
medans, and the native press is uniform
ly loyal.
London, March 10. The Times claims
to have information that the Russians
have pushed still further into Afghanis
tan, and that a collision is imminent.
Tho ameer informs Lord Dufferin that he
is prepared to resist the invaders, but re
quests that England fortify Herat.
Washington. March 10. Late this
afternoon Lamont notified Morton, Bol

Judd, the telegraph operator, that their
services would bo dispensed with. These
vacancies will not be filled, Lamont con

This morning he arose refreshed. He

trouble, aud was able to partake of con
siderable nourishment.
Sec Fbancisco, March 10. -Jose Cova.
acting counsel of Guatemala in this city,
to the consolidation of the five Central
American republics, news of which was
telegraphed yesterday, said: ''It is un
questioned that the controlling influence
that rendered thisuuion of republics pos
sible was a universal desire for the speedy
completion of the Nicaraguau canal. It
is considered probable that the capital of
the new republic will be Guatemala, the
present capital of Guatemala and head
quarters of President Barrios.'"
San FitASCiseo, March 10. Tho strik
ing sailors of the coasters continue their
coercive measures to prevent coasting
vessels from obtaining crews at the pres
ent rate of wages. Two hundred and
fifty strikers boarded the schooner -1-fred,
which was ready to go to sea. The
strikers stated they would permit the
vessel to go on its voyage if the captain
would pay them s3." per month. The
captain refused, saying hu would give
$30. Thereupon the strikers induced the
men to leave tho ve3Ul. rue strikers
prevented the ship IUcIrn-d III. aecuring
a crew unless increased wages were paid.
Londov, Mxrch 10. The Pall 3la!l
Gazeffr says it is believed the news re
ceived last eveuiug to the effect that the
Russians had advanced their outposts iu
Zulpkar pass further south, instead of
withdrawing north, as requested by Eng
land is correct. There can be no doubt
great fears are entertained of a collis
sion between Russian and Afghan troops,
as this last advance has placed the op
posing outposts face to face, and taken
tho Russians much nearer Afghan terri
tory. There is no indication, says the
Gazelle, that tho Russians have gone be
yond what they consider the Afghan
boundary line.
W'Ancc-QTON, March 10. A3 tho new
cabinet is now made up, one-half of tho
members will hae to be introduced to
the other half, from the want of any pre
vious acquaintance. The president
never knew personally but two of the ad
visers he has chosen until after his nom
ination at Chicago. It cannot be
charged, therefore, that any peculiar
partiality resulting from association de
termined these selections. They were
evidently made for publio and political
reasons alone. General disappointment
is felt that Mr. Thurman should have
been cast aside after his long and valu
able services to the party, and in view of
his standing before the country. He
would have g'ven character to and in
spired confidence in the ahministration
from the outset, as Governor Marcy did
when he accepted the department of
state under Mr. Pierce. Mr. Lincoln
adopted the policy rt putting his fore
most rivals in the cabinet, who shed
lustre on the administration.

El Mahdi commands experienced Er
peau aid iu his insurrection against the
Egyptian government, iu the parson of a
versatile aud adventurous spirit whoss
favorite clement is the atmoshere of re
volution and bloody strife.
This interesting adventurer is known
as Olivier Pain. He is of mixed French
and Spanish blood, ami was born in
Paris about forty-three year.- ago. After
receding a thorough education at one of
the high schools of the French capital,
while still a youth he employed his con
siderable abilities with the pen against
the gpvernment of Napoleon III. He
married in 1555 or the year after. His
children are believed to be still living.
Whether or not his wife is living is not
The terrib.e reverses of the frali
crmy in 1ST0, and the collipsc of the em
pire" in consequence, wa? succeeded in
Paris by i government which succumbed
to the commune. This brought Pain,
who had been nn agitator for years, into
great prominence as a leader. When, in
the spring of 1871, the forces of M.mliul
MacMahon forced their way into th re
bellious capital, Pain fought in the ranks
of the commune. Previously to the
short-lived supremacy of the communists
he had taken part in the war against
Prussia, as a journalist anil soldier.
He survived the horrors which accom
panied the suppression of the revolution
lie had assisted to bring about but was
taken prisoner and sentenced with
Rochefort, Louise Michel and other no
torious parsons to the penal colony at
NewCaledonia. This was in 137:. He
escaped to Australia in the early part of
187. with Rochefort and four others.
The fugitives then made their way to
this continent, landing in San Francis
co. He and Rochefort crossed the Uni
ted States together, and iu the spring of
187.1 sailed from New York to England.
While residing in London, immediately
subsequent to this time, tho friends en
gaged in journalism for a period. Then
they made their way to Geneva, where
Ufnlramlgeuni was edited for circula
tion in Paris.
Then next heard of M. Pain wa.s act
ing as Osman Pasha's private secretary
at the siega of Plevna, in tho war of
1877-78, between Turkey and Russia, and
which proved so disastrous to the Mo
hamraedau jtower. He wrote the answer
returned io the Russian commander by
Osman Pasha, when tho surrender o'f
PIevnaewas demanded by the besieging
force. His influence over the illustrious
Turkish oflicer who defended the city,
was as remarkable as that he now
wields in the tent of Mahdi. It began
when he was acting as newspaper cor-
responueni luere, nnu resniieu wuu ms

! Paris, from whence he embraced the first
opiiortunity of once more engaging in
feats of broil and battle. This was the
'. insurrection led by HI Mahdi, whom Iu
determined to reach if possible. After he

ho was nearly killed by wnudering
