The Jlevi onslrant with 36,773 cases,
has arrived, and those who expected
to buy some cheap parcels out of her
have been disappointed, as there is
very little offering, and that at ad
vanced prices; so the situation practi
cally remains unchanged. We hear
of representatives of London houses
complaining of having nothing to sell
to the grocers, and that in spite of
their reporting their ability to sell at
good prices, their principals refuse
to support them; the grocers are
therefore bound to obtain their sup
plies from our market, and this
therefore explains the good demand
whioh we experience here. London
The feature of the week has been
the arrival of tho Remonstrant with
' 36,773 casee of salmon, tho whole of
which had been sold to arrive, and
is now in process of removal by the
various purchasers. None of this
consignment that wo hear of has
been offered at lower than 2224s
per case, with an excellent country
demand, which,, in the memory of
those most largely engaged in the
trade exceeds in volume and steadi
ness anything ever before experi
enced. This, we are given to under
stand, has been accelerated by the
distribution in the north of England
of the inferior article; but the public
will be masters of the situation in the
long run, and grocers, instead ol
presenting their customers with
sloppy stuff at 16s per case and under,
will, by distributing the magnificent
parcels now arriving, give the utmost
satisfaction everywhere. The further
fact must likewise bo borne in mind
that the present price? are far below
the average of the past few years, and
that the supply, in round numbers,
for the world's consumption, is just
about 1,000 cases per day deficient
upon the previous actual consump
tion; whilst fcr this country the
proportion is even greater, the supply
showing fally two-thirds deficiency
upon the previous three years1 aver
age consumption, or, say, 300,000
against 510,000 cases. Correspond

The municipal olection in this
city was warmly contested yes
terday. It was the first timo in the
city's history that tho officers other
than mayor and councifmen were
e.eotcd by a direct vote, and for the
first time" also party lines were drawn
more closely than on former occa
sions. Twomain tickets were in the
field, tho regular Republican ticket;
the Tegular Democratic ticket; on
the former all the nominees but ono
were Republican; on the latter all
the nominees but one were Demo
cratic The Independent club also
had a full ticket out, and in addition
there were thousands of mongrel
tickets on which names were so
mixed that close scrutiny was re
quired to see just who the voter was
The day was exceptionally fine and
the vioinity of tho polling plaoes
were crowded from the rising of the
sun to the going down of the same.
There was never any more Orderly or
quiet election. Every body was good
natured and jovial, and though, of
course, some votes were challenged
as will sometimes occur, and tho ar
guments for and against candidates
grew somewhat animated, yet it
would bo impossible to find any in
stance where good order and gentle
manly behavior was not the rule.
"Scratched" tickets were the order
of the day: Republican, Democratic,
Independent, "mugwump," flyers, all
wore scratched, scratched mercilessly.
Personal opposition, personal popu
larity, old grudges, desire to get even,
mistaken advice, stubborness in
staying in tho field, and a hundred
other reasons contributed to the de
feat or triumph of the candidates.
The chief fight was on chief of
police. A good many of Clark
Loughrey's friends had been disap
pointed in seeing W. J. Barry get the
Republican nomination, and openly
announced their intention to "knife
him." The three cornered fight on
the police judge was also au interest
ing feature of the day and not the
least in interest was the contest in
relation to the billet of street super
intendent. Everything else seemed
to be secondary and on these three
ofllces it is reported considerable
trading was done.
In the first ward 480 votes were
polled; in the second ward. 303; a
total of 783. This is the largest vote
ever polled in the city. In '81 the
first ward polled 335 votes; the sec
ond ward, 175; a total of 510. In '83
55i votes were polled in the first
ward, and 21-1 in the second; a total
of 768. Compared with '83 the first
ward shows a loss of 74: the second
ward, a gain of 89.
The work of counting the vole3 was
necessarily slow owing to the univer
sal scratching. The count in the
second ward was finished at twelve
o'clock last night: in the first
ward it was finished at one this
morning. Crowds of eager specta
tors stood around till a very late
hour, at last turning away with the
remark "Well, we'll see tho figures in
fur. Astobiax in the morning."
It was the most interesting election
ever held in Astoria. L'he results
are not altogether seen in the returns
of last night. They will bo more mani
fest later on, and if all talea be true
more than one had "his political
goose killed" by his action yesterday.
With this however. The Astobian
has nothing to do. Our province is to
report the day's occurrence fairly and
impartially, and record the vote.
Our thanks are due the judges and
clerks in the various wards. To their
kindly promptitude we are indebted
for the following complete returns.

THE KNIGHTS OF LABOR AND RETAIL
The ordinary difficulties whioh at
tend tho retail business, such as the
competition of unscrupulous and
dishonest rivals, compromise settle
ments and other trado evils, are well
known to most of our readers, many
of whom have doubtless suffered
from them both in pocket and feelings.
These drawbacks to success, -however,
are to be expected, and the
sagacious merchant prepares himself
to meet such contingencies as they
may arise. Of late, retail dealers in
some of the large easternmanufactur
ing cities have had a new obstacle to
contend with in -the prosecution of
their business, which is causing them
no little annoyance and in some
cases, serious loss. This arises from
the policy adopted by the rather mys
terious organization, the Knights of
Labor, now said to number 750,000
men, in "boycotting;" or, in other
words, forbidding its members to
purchase goods produced by any in
dividual or firm that refuses to settle
disputes with employes in regard to
wages or hours of labor on a basis
satisfactory to the order. Not only
is this done, but dealers arc request
ed to cease selling the goods which
have been "boycotted." From a New
York exchange we learn that. the
operation of the "boycott" is as fol fel fol
eows: If an nrticle is boycotted in
New York or elsewhere, "the district
assembly of the order (so-called) in
that city sends notice to all the dis
trict assemblies in tho country, and
tho looal assembly issues the follow
To tho dealers and consumers whom it
may conoaru You aro hereby notified
that tho following-named goods have
been boycotted by the Ganaral Asssmbly
of the Knights of Labor of North Ameri
ca, and you are requested by District
Assembly No. to cease dealing in these
goods on and after 1885.
A list of the forbidden articles is
appended. These have already in
cluded a certain brand of soap, a
brand of baking powder, brands of
cigars made by a factory in which
there was a strike, stoves, the goods
of a watch case company, hats, and
Hour that has been put up in alleged
"scab" barrels made by non-union
coopers. The circular is signed,
"Per order of the Boycotting Com
mittee of District No. ." Copies of
the document are served on every
dealer. It is given to every Knight
of Labor in the distriot, and goes
into their families. In the case of
one article, on which tho boycott is
removed, the distriot assembly pub
licly advertises1 the fact that all per
sons and Knights of Labor may now
purchase it as the boycott has bsen
taken off by the general assembly.
As the Kuights of Labor, who com
prise the bulk cf the customers of re
tail stores in many of the New Eng
land towns, obey these orders to the
letter, it is hardly necessarj to ob
serve that merchants are forced to be
on the alert lest they find their
shelves loaded down with boycotted
good3. It is said that a certain retail
merchant in one of these towns re
centlv was obliged to return 2,500
worth of a boyco'ted brand of baking
powder to tho manufacturer, on pen
alty of losing seventy-five per cent, cf
his trade. So with cigars; the report
er of an eastern journal asked a
dealer for a cigar of a particular
brand. He was informed that if such
a cigar was sold by him, not a work
man in the town would enter his
store. Whether such proceedings
accord with the spirit of justice and
independence, which has always been
the prid o every honest American,
we leave our readers to determine.
If methods of this kind are to prevail,
however, in business and social life,
it ia safe to predict surprising indus
trial and political , changes m in this
country, at a period notfarflistant

ing orders with J. a.D. Gray.
Tho feud between Blaine and
Oonkling originated when they wero
members of the house, and it was
first manifested in May, 1866, when
the representative from Maine ar
raigned the representative fronT'New
York for having received money from
the war department for legal services,
while he was drawing his salary as a
member of congress.
Mr. Conkling said if the member
from Maine J bad the least idea how
profoundly indifferent to him his
opinion was on tho subject he had
been discussing, or on any other sub
ject, he thought ho would hardly
take trouble to express it. He apolo
gized to the house for the length of.
time he had occupied, inconsequence
of being drawn into the matter by an
interruption which he had before de
nounced to be ungentlemanly and
impertinent and having nothing at all
to do with tho matter.
Mr. Blaine said that he knew that
this wa3 what they called down east
"running emptyings." The gentle
man from New York could not get off
on tho technical pretext that he did
uot hold a commission as judge advo
cate. Many an officer had led a bri
gade, a division or a corps, with no
more of a commission than such a
one as the gentleman from New York
held. "As to the gentleman's cruel
sarcasm, (Mr. Blaine continued), I
hope ho will let me escape his dis
dain. His lordb pomposity, grand
iloquent swell, his majestic over-towering,
his turkey-gobbler strutting,
have been so crushing to myself and
to all members of the house, that I
know it was an act of the grossest
temerity on my part to venture on
provoking them. But I knew who
was responsible for it all. I kuew
that for the last five weeks au extra
strut had seized the gentleman. It is
not his fault; it is tho fault of an
other; that gifted and satirical man,
Theodoro Tilton, of tho New York
Independent, was over here spend
ing some weeks, and writing home
letters in which, among some serious
things, he had put some jocose things,
among tho cruelest of which was that
the mantle of tho late Winter Davis
had fallen upon tho member from
New York. He (Conkling) took it as
serious, and has since strutted more
than usual. Well, the resemblance
was great; as striking as Hyperion to
a satyr, Thersyte3 to Hercules, mud
to marble, a dunghill to a diamond,
a singed cat to a Bengal tiger, a
whining puppy to a roaring lion.
