ASTORIA, OREGON:
THURSDAY.
-ATEIL 2. 18S5
Bismarck celebrated his seventieth
birthday 3'esterday.
At present Ireland appears to be
the quietest part of the British do-
The daily bulletins regarding
Grant's health resemble the -voluminous
dispatches that a nation read in
the summer of 1881 regarding the
dying Garfield.
Fkance means business at last The
new French ministry are going to
push the Chinese war with vigor and
will be content with nothing short of
dictating peace in Pekin.
Cleveland has reappointed Pear
son postmaster at New York. Pear
son is a Bepublican who did all he
could to beat Blaine. Now he gets
his reward.
The editor of the San.Leandrot
Cal., Reporter, who was recently fined
S5 by a justice of the peace for con
tempt, offered to pay the fine by can
celing an old bill of $7.50, which his
honor owed the editor.
110,000 is now due in Egypt for
salaries, against which the treasury
possesses 10,000. A complete finan
cial collapse is, however, regarded by
both the official and non-official
world as preferable to the signature
of the Anglo-French compact, imply
ing an international guarantee.
Ik soveral South American coun
tries it is customary to have those
attending the funeral of any promi
nent citizen sign a testimonial to the
worth of the deceased, or pass a
series of resolutions setting forth his
merits and distinguished traits.
These tributes are placed in the cof
fin. RnroRTEns and detectives find
about 1,500 socialists in Pittsburg
and vicinity, of whom not one in a
hundred is a real workingman, or has
an honest means of livelihood. They
are all foreigners and have come to
this country to get somebody else to
support them. Among them were
two incendiary women speakers.
The whole line jof the Central Pa
cific and its branches north of Goshen
have been leased for ninety-nine years
to the Southern Pacific railroad com
pany, tbe lease taking effect on the
1st, at a minimum rental of Sl,200,000
per annum, and so much more as the
surplus earnings may justify up to
S3.000.000. The transfer includes the
Central Pacific leased roads in Oali
forma.
A kew way of selling beef is to be
tried in Boston as soon as the first
shipment of the meat from Chicago
reaches the city. He who bids high
est will have the cut he likes best.
It remains to be seen how fr this
method will check the operations of
the middle men, who now work the
retail food markets to their own ad
vantage. The ninth volume of the tenth cen
sus report, just issued, shows that
the forest product of this country for
the census year amounted to $700,
000,000 in valne; while the wheat
harvest, valuing the product oven at
SI a bushel, amounted to only $150,
000,000; and our iron and steel pro
duction is less than $300,000,000. All
our coal, soft and hard, for the year,
was valued at $100,000,000, -while our
wood, burned for domestic purposes
alone was estimated to be worth
more than three times that sum.
The American Almanac for 1885,
which is edited by Ainsworth B.
Spofford. the librarian of congress, is
out. It computes the popular vole
at the recent presidential election as
follews: Cleveland, 4,911,017; Blaine,
4.848,334; St John, 151,809; Butler,
133,825; scattering and blank, 11,362;
total popular vote, 10,048,061, or 79.9
per cent of the voters indicated by
the census of 18S0. Plurality for
Cleveland, 62.GS3. To arrive at this
result the fusion vote in Iowa and
Nebraska is counted for Cleveland,
and in Michigan only 753 greenback
votes are givci to Butler. In Mis
souri all the fusion vote is counted
for Blaine, and in West Virginia But
ler is only credited with 805 votes.
In arguing against the icfea of a
new state constitution the Oregonian
says: "A constitution should be like
a mighty and spreading tree. If a
limb be unsound or out of just pro
portion, lop it off, but do not to cure
a defect fell the giant oak and plant
an acorn in its place. Prune it, de
velop it, bring it to perfection. Our
constitution provides amply and spe
cifically for its ora development. It
provides for a united legislative and
popular judgment upon every change
as it is proposed, that each variation
from the original plan shall be viewed
unconnected with other measures
and upon its own merits. In this
limitation lies safety from precipitous,
passionate and ill-considered change."
Fbom every direction comes the
sound of conflict In Canada, Cen
tral America, Africa, China, Trance
Russia, England, military action pre
vails. The United States is in pros
perous peace and can feed and clothe
any little half-dozen foreign nations
who want to pay for first-class goods.
The condition of affairs in the food
less counties of "West Virginia is
growing desperate. The frozen streams
and terrible roads render it absolutely
impossible to render aid with any
speed. Still the people of the state
are earnestly at work, and will furnish
abundant relief as soon as the people
can be reached. Mountain fanners
have no seed or money with which to
buy it In many instances the whole
bill of fare consists of parched corn
and sorghum molasses. In "Wirt
county it has been foundnecessary to
issue rations of corn meaL The Park
ersburg Daily Journal recites in
stances of terrible suffering and sick
ness, and says that a traveler counted
in one brief day's journey thirty head
of dead cattle.
The curious fact has come to light
that both Grant and Sherman are re
tired ''upon the rank and full pay" of
generals, the latter draws 15,000 a
year, while the former iB entitled to
but $13,500. The trouble is that no
body thought to insert in the Grant
retirement bill the words "and allow
ances," by which Gen. Sherman gets
$125 a month as commutation of
quarters. But however much the
omission is to be regretted, the
chances are, unhappily, that it will
make little difference to the stricken
warrior now. Possibly he will never
draw any part of the salary the coun
try would so gladly pay him for years
to come; he has not yet accepted the
retirement, which in this instance
takes the form of an appointment
