ship in Portland, under tho name of
Mitchell & Dement. Tho ex-senator's
friends (and they are legion) in this part

as an item of news, and will doubtless
bear it in mind. The junior member is
known as a rising star in his profession,
and the senior partner's experience and
ability make the combination a strong
one. They have a $5,000 law library on

loaded by Balfour. Guthrie & Co., who
sold the cargo on the other side. She
was built at Dumbarton in 1877, register
ed 1242 tons, and owned by Gracie, Beaz

made many friends when here, and it
will bo remembered that he named his
infant boy Sydney Oregon. As only

There "was considerable talk around
town yesterday about tho expense of fix
ing up the enqino and hose apparatus,
etc., which wore so badly stove up run
ning to the upper Astoria fire yesterday
morning. Business is business, and it
does look kind of one-sided to make us
in tho city pay tho taxes and keep up a
costly fire department, and then bo at
the service of our upper Astoria friends
in need. Of course, it wouldn't bo
Christian-liko to refuse, and our neigh
bors are entitled to the fullest measure
of Christian charity, but charity begins
at home, and The Astoiuan only voices
public opinion when it sayp that if our
upper Astoria neighbors want protection
to their property from fire, it is in order
to stand in and share the expense. "Sal
vation is free, but it costs like to run
The clang of the fire bell at 9:33 last
night sent everyone bounding into tho
streets. A brisk wind was blowing from
the south and off toward tho gas works
great sheets of flanio were leaping into
the sky. " Tho gas works fire on fire"
was on hundreds of tongues and as quick
as men and horses could get tho engine
there assistance went, Tho fire proved
to be in a detached houso on "West Fifth
street south of the gas works and close
to the new Russian church. Tho house
which was as dry as tinder burned fierce
ly and tho wind fanned it into a furnace.
In four minutes from the time tho alarm
first sounded a well directed stream of
water was playing on tho burning build
ing and the lumber surrounding it and
all danger was passed. Nothing, but the
promptest action saved that part of the
city from a destructive fire and tho As
toria fire department though sorely crip
pled by yesterday morning's disastrous
experience at upper town showed what
skill and training can do in promptly
reaching tho ground and getting to work.
The building was owned by C. W.
Shively and occupied by 3Ir. Pennell.
He was busy on one of theuet racks at
tho water front, and his wife and chil
dren wera sitting on tho front porch of
the house when the fire suddenly blazed
up in the rear and'made it impossible to
save anything. As there had been no fire
in that part of tho houso all day the
. origin of the fire is a mystery.

STATE TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION.'
The silken hangings of tho Odd Fel
lows' heavily Graced walls were rustling
in tho morning breezo from tho Pacific
yesterday morning when tho indefat
igable Prof. ilcEIroy pronounced the
morning benediction and outlined tho
programme for tho day. Thero wa.1 not
a very large attendance, for the atmos
phere of Astoria is not conducive to early
rising, but by the time the regular busi
ness of the day wa3 taken up the hall
The first thing taken up was a general
discussion on "Language: methods; how
much technical grammar?" which was
started by Prof. Lane of Salem, who con
cisely made a strong case against that
system of alleged grammar where the ex
ceptions are of more apparent importance
than the rules. Tho gentleman was
heartily seconded by several progressive
teachers, who readily ceo the folly of at
tempting to bind down a growing young
language by the ancient forms and cast
iron rules that were more app'.icablo to
Greek and Latin. Mrs. McDanicls of
Yamhill, Miss Tapper of "Wisconsin, and
others took part in illustrating how lan
guage uiaj' be taught without throwing
tho popil on tho Procrustean bed of that
dreadful "English grammar," whether it
be Smith's, or Kirkwood's, or Peunio's,or
Towne's, or Brown's, or any other ante
diluvian attempt to fetter our clastic
Anglo-Saxon speech. Mrs. Martin, prin
cipal of tho Court-street school, ltev. M.
L. ltagg of Salem, Professors Davis
of Washington county, Wetzel of East
Portland, riawthorno of Eugene, John
sou, Miller, Baird and others gave testi
mony as the spirit moved them, and the
discussion was an animated one.
A fine solo by Professor Parvin furnish
ed an agreeable interlude, after which
Mrs. Juli: F. McDaniel read an essay on
"Parents in the school room." She took
tho ground that parents can advance
greatlj- the cause of true education by
visiting the schools, bv seeing the teach
ers at work, and by cultivating social re
lations -with the school. After a fifteen
miuuto recess, Prof. C. E. Moore, super
intendent of the asylum for the blind at
Salem, read an essay on "Education
through the senses." Judging from his
display of knowledge on the subject.
Prof. Moore would seem to be the right
X THE EIGHT PL ICE.
His statistics were instructive and in
teresting and his listeners knew more
about matters and things in connection
wiih tho education of the blind when he
finished than before.
The afternoon session was opened by
Prof. Z. M. Parvin. who spoke on "Pro
gressive Music," giving practical illus
trations on tho biacu-boara. 1'rof. N.
Davis of Forest Grove, followed with
"Events in onr Common School System."
His remarks struck a responsivo chord in
mo minub ui iu:iuy prescui .iuu uis illus
tration of many existing defects in oar
common scnool system was .orciuie.
Prof. J. Emery, of the State Agricultural
College, at Corvallis next lectured on
"Tho Importanco of Moral Culture in
our Schools." His ideas were practical,
and if put in practice universally, there
would not bo every year so many thous-
mus or boys and girls goiug oat of tbe
public schools with crammed heads and
empty hands, whoa a few bright, clear
ideas are needed for use in daily life.
After a song and solo accompaniment
by Miss Hohnan and Miss Cora Wells,
Prof. JUilIer of 1'nilomatu uollcgo ottered
"Whereas, It is within the province
of tho teachers in tho public schools to

memory of her auditors. Prof. B. J.
Hawthorne, of the stato university, fol
lowed in somo happily chou remarks,
in which Prof Bailey joined. Prof. Mc

of morals to be taught in our schools

audience that is so substantial an
evidence of appreciation, and after tho
delicate rendition of somo instrumental
music, Prof. McElroy introduced tho lec

proceeded to give his views on
His purpose, ho said, was not to at
tempt tho history nor tho vindication of
American literature, but to adventure
such remarks upon it as may have been
suggested by reading and reflection.
Unquestionably the truest distinction
and glory of nations must bo sought in
their literature. In it they survive tho
longest and by mean3 of it they achieve
tho most enduring victories. Tho vic
tory of armies is evanescent; the conflict
dies away like the throes of tho volcano
or the rage of tho storm, but the chroni
cles of tho ago aro enduring. Aristotle
outlives Alexander and Shakespeare is
more famous than the monarchs of his
Oratory is powerful, it sways the minds
of men as docs tho wind tho trees of tho
forest; there is magic in the voice, but
persuasion passes away with tho sound
of the speaker's utterance. In death tho
voice loses its music, tho eye its fire.
Nothing is left of tho eloquence of Peri
cles, or Bolingbroko or Patrick Henry,
which onco roused mon like a clarion and
reigned supremo in tho senate hall of
nations. The eloquence of
DEMOSTHENES, CICZUO, CLAY, WESSTEE,
Survives only in their recorded speeches.
Literature has been called the immor
tality of speech. To it belongs the task
of embalming thoughts, sentiments, and
speech of those regal intellects who
though dead still rule our spirits from
their urns. Books havo proved them
selves monuments more enduring than
bras3 or marble. The Parthenon is in
ruins, but time has proved the Biad; the
statutes of Praxiteles and Phidias are
but mutilated torsos, while the tragedies
of JEschylGS and the odes of Pindar are
still admired. Borne and its glory sur
vive, not in tho golden palace of Nero,
nor in temples nnd theaters but in the
works of Virgil, Horace and Tacitus.
Have we, in tki3 country a national
literature? The American revolution
effected only a political divorce. Tho
United States never lifted the standard
of revolt in tho realms of thoughtnor
renounced their inheritance in British
literature. They still dwell with prido
upon its great names as of one blood
with themselves. Shakespeare, Milton,
Bacon, Locke, are not foreign authors;
thev are moro liko patron saints, and tho
old" English Biblo ranks among tho
classics; its influenco on our literature is
transcended only by its influence on our
religion. It is a wonderful specimen of
tho strength and music of the Anglo
Saxon language: it is a rich inheritance
bequeathed to this and successive genera
tions. If we look for the productions o
American literature, for nower and fruit
indigenous to the soil, we must ba con
vinced that our labor is rewarded. The
first stages of American national life
were not favorable for literary growth,
but the notion secm3 to be among Eu
ropeans that a commercial and demo
cratic stato was unfitted to foster arts
and literature. Great poets and great
thinners appear oniy nc distant intervals
to mark the epochs of history. They aro
as the flowering of tho national mind,
once in a century. Their mission is to
disclose new facts in nature, to carry the
human mind a step forward in its pro
gress. American literature is not poer: in
theology may be mentioned Edwards,
Hopkins, D wight, Davies; in history, Ban
croft and Prescott; in eloquence and or
atory, Clay and Webster; hction is repre
sented by "Irving, Cooper, Holmes, Haw
thorne; poetry, by Bryant, Percival,
Willis, Wbittier, Longfellow.
Foreign critics have long been looking
for our representative man: for him who
shall be the best exponent of our liter
ature, thought, stylo and spirit. In some
quarters Emerson is regarded as tho
nearest appreach: a thoroughly indepen
dent nnd original man, ho derived his in
spiration from our own woods and hills
and streams. His genius is thoroughly
democratic. He aims to translate tho
spirit of tho new world nnd its free insti
tutions into tho language of an ideal
philosophy. We can appreciate Emer
son, butfew of us can follow where he
leads. His genius is too eccentric nnd
peculiar, his temper too cynical, his tone
Dr. Garner hero entered upon an elab
orate disquisition that is worthy of re
production, but to which time and space
forbid mor? thnu passing reference. Ho
held as false the idea that the race of
Titans is extinct; or should one appear
thero remains no work for him to do.
All tho themes of interest for great his
tories, great iems, are not appropriated I
nor exhausted. Tho earth and life aro !
not tamo nor barren. Materials for song j
aud story can never bo wanting, so long
as nature and the unfathomable heart of
man remain. Not tho materials but the ,
genius to employ them that is wanting. I

from across tho Atlantic: our own land,
it L? said, is the native homo of the mock

oiros, out, nas none oi its own. xiieso
complaints are wearying and are not
worth answering. We can only ask the
discerning reader, the unprejudiced crit
ic to examine our American literature
and decide fairly.
Tho futuro of our literaturo must be
determined by the character and destiny
of our nation. If the magnificent dreams
of those who cast tho horoscopo of its
future shall be realized, thero will soon
ba on this continent a nation of a hun
dred millions of freemen, recognizing
the samo government and speaking the
same language. With resources that
mock at tho world's wealth; with capa
bilities of power pnd progress that oat
strip all calculation and with a position
of unequaled grandeur our fondest hopes
must be realized. Tho speaker's ideal of
what our literaturo should be is that it
should possess Hcbrow simplicity and
strength, aud Greeksymmetryandgrr.ee.
It should bo a joint product of Anglo-Saxon
practicalness and Oriental searing:
its noblest tributes should bo paid the
cross of Christ and around that sym
bol of inan'd redemption its greenest gar
lands should bo ever hung.
Dr. Garner spoke with great energy
nnd force of manner. At tho conclusion
of his address Mrs. J. B. Wyatt, Mrs. C. S
W. Fulton. Mr. V. A. ilclntosh and Jlr.
J. N. Griffin sang " My own native land"
in a manner that elicited enthusiastic
applause. The essayist of the evening
was Mrs. Florence E. Martin, principal
of tho school in district No. Ono. Her
essay was on "Tho Aims and Ends of
Education." It treated of tho education
of tho body, tho necessity of a sound,
healthy body, of a physical ground
work, of muscular stamina; then
the education of the mind, the
educing, tho drawing out of the mental
powers of the individual. Tho third div
ision of tho essay, the education of the
heart, had just been reached when tho
clang of the fire bell- caused a stampede
of thoso nearest tho stairs and tho hasty
exit of most of the malo members of tho
audience, Mrs. Martin's essay remaining

A FATHER'S FOOLISH PROMISE.
A cent seems of little value, but if it is
only doubled a few times it grows to a
marvelous sum. A young lady in Port
land caught her father in a rash promise
by a knowledge of this fait on her part.
She modestly proposed that if her father
would only give her 1 cent 'on ono day
and double that amount on each succes
sive day for just ono month, sho would
pledge herself never to ask of him an
other cent of money as long as she livod.
Not stopping to run over the figures in
his head, and not supposing it would
amount to a largo sum, he was glad to
accept the offer at once, thinking it also
a favorable opportunity to includo a pos
sible marriage dowry in tlie future. On
the twenty-fifth day ho became greatly
alarmed lest if he complied with his own
acceptance he might bo obliged to bo
"declared a bankrupt on his own peti
tion." But on the thirtieth day this
young lady demanded only tho pretty
little sum of $5,3G8,70G.12. Tho aston
ished merchant was only too happy.to
cancel tho claim by advancing a hand
some cash payment for his folly in allow
ing himself to give a bond for his word
he considered as good as his bond with
out noticing tho consideration therein
expressed, and by promising to return to
tho old custom of advancing smaller
sums daily until otherwise ordered.

would lead to a general resumption of
