SATURDAY MAY 10. 1885
The voters of tho country are no
longer iu favor of long campaigns,
and the movement now on foot in
several of tlio eastern states to have
the state conventions this fall held
late in the season, meets with no ob
jection. The idea is an excellent one
and should be generally adopted, not
only this year, but -every year here
after. The Chicago Herald well
says: "Our political campaigns are
of unconscionable length. They be
gin iu the spring and extend all
through the summer and fall. In
presidential years there is nothing
but politics. A national campaign
need not occupy more than six or
eight weeks, and an ordinary state
canvass might bo made in two or three
weeks just as well as in the same
number of months. It is tho interest
of tho workers, of course, that cam
paigns should be long and expensive,
but the people can do away with this
infliction if they will. Should the
disposition now manifested in several
states to have less politics and more
business be heeded by the managers
a sensible reform will have begun.
It will then only be necessary to
transfer the new departure to uation
al politics as well in order to make
these oft recurring 'elections much
less than trying to the average citi
zen whose chief desire is to vote and
be done with it"
The basis of tho Anglo-Kussian
agreement appears to consist in the
abolition of the neutral zone in favor
of a direct boundary between Russia
and Afghanistan. Russian govern
ment circles think this will secure a
lasting peace, the neutral zone having
been a constant cause of discussion.
Tho London Times of tho 14th, de
clares that men of all parties are
agreed in thinking "something is
wrong." Iu other words that a peace
able arrangement with Russia is even
now not certain. This warning by
the 2'imes probably signifies that
a hint has got out of the contents of
the dispatches brought by Stephens
and that they charge the Russians
with aggression and with perversion
of letters and telegrams of .corre
spondents of daily papers. The es
pecially inspired Daily News strong
ly asserts this.
A a meeting of the military ser
vice institute of the United States at
Governor's island on the 14th, Lieut
Eugene Griffin, of the engineers'
corps, U. S. A., read a paper on "Our
Sea Coast Defenses," wherein he
showed that the coasts of this govern
ment were almost without protection,
and urged tho necessity for prompt
action by the federal powers in this
respect. Senator J. N. Dolph, chair
man of the senate committee on sea
coast defenses, was present and prom
ised to aid all legitimate schemes in
congress, whereby the utmost pro
tection could be afforded United
States coasts and harbors.
TheS. F. Chronicle reiterates tho
charge that Congressman Henley of
California was a Mexican citizen.
The worst of it, for Henley, is that
the Chronicle proves it
Owiko to ill health, John Kelly
says he will refuse to accept any fed
eral appointment at home or abroad.
Good manners, John, demand that
you wait until you are asked.

The atern-wheel steamer City of Salem
broke her shaft while coming down the
"Willamette Wednesday, from Salem.
Yesterday she was taken in tow by the
steamboat Isabel, for this city. In pass
ing Rock island rocks, the passago being
narrow, tho Isabel drew ahead, keeping a
lino out to the City of Salem. Tho Isabel
had about passed throngh the narrow
channel, but too ranch 6wing was given
the City of Salem and she utrnck a sub
merged reef above Dove rock, tearing a
hole abont eight feet long in her port
side about amidships. This stopped her,
and she now lies with her starboard side
under water above her main deck and
port side held up by the rock. Captain
Rabbe, of the sunken boat, immediately
attempted to stop the inflow of the water,
but with no success, as the boat soon list
ed over to the position described. He
arrivea nere yesterday evening on the
Isabel, to arrance for raisin? his boat.
He thinks this can be done, as she is not
in a bad condition, bbe had on board
seventy-seven tons of flour from the
Capitol mills, about twenty tons of which
is damaged. The rest was brought down
by the Isabel.
The City of Salem is owned jointly by
the Capitol Mills company of Salem, and
William Reid of this city. She was built
in this city in 1875, was 45G tons register,
gross, and could carry about 200 tons.
Her value was from $15,000 to $18,000;
whether insured could not be learned.
She has been engaged in carrying wheat
from upper Willamette points to the
Capitol mills, and flour from the mills to
this city. Oregonian, 13.
Everybody is complaining of the de
pression prevailing in all the avenues
of commerce and industry.

mentioned as the chief factor, but the
QUESTION OF THE HOUR
is, how can we avert a general bast up ?
It is evident that something must be
done, and done soon. Simple talk wont
help. We must not indulge in luxuries,
we mas economise and be careful.
If you arc in need of anything, inquire
for prices; d6n't trade in a certain store
because Mr. Jones or Mrs. Brown do,
think for your self. Now, for instance
If we offer

a certain article we know that no other
store In Astoria can afford to sell the

Having opened a general Dry Goods
and Clothing store only recently, we
bought our stock at greatly reduced fig
ures, and we bought for cash besides,
which means a further reductiou of G
per cent, so that we are ahead alto
gether as far as prices are concerned.
At any rate we invite the reasoning
public to call and compare prices and if
anybody can do better we will not claim
