At a regular meeting of Temple
Lodge No. 7, A. F. and A. M., last ev

elected for the ensuing term: E. A.
Noyes, W. M.; F. W. Newell, S. W.;
Wm. Chance, J. W.; M. 0. Orohby,
treasurer; G. W. Lounsberry, secre
tary. The new liquor law, the full text of
which appeared in Sunday's Asro
bian occasions considerable comment.
The opinion is expressed that it,
together with other legislation not
specified or called for in the gov
ernors message convening the special
session, will be declared unconstitu
tional. It is also thought that as
far as this city is concerned it would
be bad policy to try to upset existing
conditions which appear to be mut
ually satisfactory at present
A comfortably warmed house, a
slim audience and a splendid rendi

characteristics of ""Called Back" as
presented at Boss' opera house last

where all did so well praise would be
invidious. To some present Chas J.
Edmunds' masterly portrayal of the
character of Dr. Ceneri was worthy
of special note. The company is a
fine one and it is-with regre it is not

The following is self explanatery:
Washington, D. C, Nov. 15, 18S5.
John 0. Beltj:
Postmaster general has notified
me of your appointment as post
master, at Astoria, Oregon, to-day.
Nicholas M. Bell.
The new appointee is tho father-in-law
of Capt J. H. D. Gray, and
is "well and favorably known through
out the state. He is a kindly, agreea
ble man, with a pleasant word for
every one, qualities that "will not
come amiss in the position to which
he has been appointed. As the term
of the retiring incumbent expired
yesterday the new official will enter
upon his new duties at once. The
Astobian congratulates Col. Bell tip
on his appointment.
The Dalles Mountaineer says:
The late acts of violence in Umatilla
-county cannot be justified in any
civilized community. The recent
killing of the man near Pilot Book,
by vigilantes, and the hanging of
Keatch near Adams in that county
are evidences of a state of lawless
ness in that section which showe
little respect for courts or the lawful
ly constituted authorities. In the
first instance the man was in the
oustody of officers who were escortiug
him to Pendleton; and in the second,
Keatch was being taken before an
examining magistrate. There was
not clear evidence that either of
these two men had committed any
crime against the laws of the state of
Oregon, and especially crimes of that
nature which are punished by death.
In a community where courts are
established there can be no excuse
for mob rule, and the courts of Uma
tilla county.aro easily accessible for
the punishment of all crimes. Even
in the days of California, when vig
ilantes governed the wild mining
camps, no culprit was punished
without some opportunity given him
of proving his innocence. In neither
of the instances mentioned did the
mob give the men any trial, but kil
led them as they would a mad dog or
a -wild animal.
The public will do well to examine
-our immense stock and get our low
prices before buying elsewhere as it
will be money in your pockets. Ke
member the Crystal Palace will not be

Prof. E. B. McElrov, superintend
ent of public instruction, sends the
biennial report for lbbd and
1SS4, from his office. It is brougnt
down to the beginning of tho present
year and has finally got out of the
hands of the state printer just as the
year is drawing to a close.
To those who take an interest in
educational matters the report i3 val
uable. The number of persons be
tween the ages of four and twenty in
the state in 1873 was 38,670: in 1851
it was 73,867. Clatpop county shows
about as rapid an increase propor
tionally, as any. In 1873 there were
in this county 398 of tho age indicat
ed: in 1SS4, 1,412. In 1874, 203 school
children were enrolled in this county;
in 1884 there were 738 a little more
than half of the aggregate 1,412. The
next Tablo "D," makes a poor show
ing for this county, the "average
daily attendance" being but 565. The
list of those who hold life diplomas,
state diplomas and state certificates
is verv meager and the names of
many are conspicuously absent who
by reason of their positions are pre
sumable holders of high educational
Prof. McElroy gives a full resume
of the educational condition of the
state and makes several timely and
practical suggestions regarding their
improvement Not the least interest
ing part of the report is that which
embodies the reports of tho county
superintendents. Some of these re
ports are amusing. The superintend
ent of Washington county has a level
head on school matt-re. He thinks
that the school superintendent should
bo paid a good salary, that the stand
ard of teachers' examinations should
be raised: that a regular course of
instruction should be adopted and
followed throughout the state. Ho
saye "nine tenths of the teachers are
boys or girls, teaching as a tempora
ry resource." "There is no arrange
ment whereby one teacher can begin
where his predecessor left off." kThe
teacher coming to a new district be
gins nowhere and ends nowhere."

Thf Unique City at tho Moath of the
Sometime ago a youth to fortune
and to fame unknown came canvas
sing for the Northwest, a magazine
edited by a man who has never lost a
chance to Blur or ignore Astoria, and
who has always been useful to his
employers. It was announced that
the December number of tho maga
zine was to be resplendent with the
choicest productions of pen and pen
cil illustrating and describing
Astoria. The skill of the artist was
to vie with tho ability of the writer,
and the number in question was to
be to Astoria the thing we long had
sought and mourned because we
found it not Incidentally tho
youth aforesaid bored every individ
ual member of the council in an at
tempt to have an appropriation made
to "illustrate'' the public buildings,
and, later on the chamber of com
merce listened to the song of the
siren concerning the advantages to
be derived from "a map of the coun
ty." But the city council and the
chamber of commerce both felt that
if any money was to be spent "illus
trating" or advertising the city that
it could and would be done through
some other medium than the publi
cation of the gentleman who two
years ago characterized the city as "a
hamlet" and aneeroct at its pre
teusions. "The article on Astoria is to occupy
the groater part of the December
number:" so we were told, but took
no stock in the statement Oh, lame
and impotent conclusion. . The read
ing matter occupies le33 than three
pages, and is a rehash of old statis
tics and weather beaten statements.
The "illustrations" are an alleged
"view of Astoria, looking toward
Toueue Point, a picture of the Gen.
Milesy the Astor Hone, the Clatsop
Mill, John Hobson, (the best engrav
ing and the best thing in the book)
D. K. Warren's house, Ros3 opera
house," and a "distant view."
The last i3 too worst. There
may be -worse pictures than
that "distant view," but we
have never seen them. The article
says that the Astor House is situated
near the O. B. & N. dock, and is the
largest and best hotel in the city.
Theodore Broemser must have given
free board and lodging to the writer
during the two hours he spent getting
up the article on Astoria, though it
is hard to sec how he put in his time.
Everything in it has a flavor of hav
ing been bought and paid for, and
the only apparent reason that the ar
ticle is not longer is that the patron
age was not forthcoming. Like
Hodge's razors that were made only
to sell, the whole thing seems gotten
up '"for what there is in it" Men
and institutions that have done a
great deal for our little city are not
mentioned at all. The "article,"
"illustrations" and all cost the most
of us nothing, and the whole busi
ness is worth what it cost
In pleasing contrast to the jour
nalistic abortion commented upon
above, is the issue of the West Shore
for June 1883, -which, -without any
flourish of trumpets or beating of
drums gave an excellent description
of our seaside city and many fine
illustrations, copies of which are pre
served in many Astoria homes. That
useful magazine, in tho issue in ques
tion, gavo three splendid views of
Astoria; the public buildings, the
principal business blocks and private
residences, etc., were fully and fairly
illustrated, and the wholo thing was
done with the neatness and thorough
ness that characterizes the enterpris
ing publisher and proprietor of tho
West Shore. Comparing the two but
shows what a caricature is the pro
duction of the Northwest. More
than two years have elapsed. New
buildings have been erected, new
streets built, new residences grace
the hills and business portion; the
finest schoolhouse in the state out
side of Portland, (the best adver
tisement tho town has), Captain Fla
vel's massive residence, Col. Taylor's
fine new house, and fifty others that
might be named, all ignored prob
ably because tho owners declined to

PORTLAND BOARD OF TRADE.
The regular meeting of the board
of trade was held yesterday evening,
Donald Macleay presiding.
A communication was read from
J. N. Duwer, a member of the
"Washington territory legislature,
stating th'at a bill to regulate pilot
age on the Colombia river and its
tributaries had been introduced in
the house, aud asking for informa
tion coucerning the pilotage laws ol
Oregon so that the laws of the
state and territory might not conflict.
Messrs. D. P. Thompson, "Wm. S.
Sibson and James Young thought
that the law did not need clanging,
and the secretary of the board of
trade was instructed to inform Mr.
Duwer to that effect
A statement was read from the
O. B. & N. Co. to the effect that
the entire cost of dredging the Colum
bia river last summer was $11,957.19.
Of this amount the board of trade
had paid S4.000 and the O. E. & N.
For bearing the lion's share of the
expense the O. B. & N. Co., on
motion of James Young, was given
a vote of thanks.
Hon. D. P. Thompson offered a
resolution that the board of trade
endorse the memorial to congress,
adopted by tha water way convention
at the Dalles a few days since, and
Secretary Arnold was instructed to
forward copies of the same to Ore
gon's representatives in congress, with
instructions to use all possible means
to have the rivers improved as set
forth in the document. The measure
was adopted. Mr. Thompson said
the water way convention convinced
him that there was no feeling in the
interior against Portland, concerning
which so much has been said.
A communication -was received
from Christian Leinenweber, of As
toria, inclosing a complaint from
Captain J. E. Campbell, one of the
Columbia river state pilots. The
complaint alleges that the British
ship Abercorn, Captain McCallum,
was obliged to lay off the bar for
several days, owing to the fact that
the tugs of the Columbia Biver Tug
company, managed by Captain
George Flavel, refused to tow her
in. Finally Pilot Campbell took
the Abercorn in as far as Sand is
land and two tugs were secured,
which towed her to Astoria.
Mr. "Wm. S.- Sibson read letters
from Captain Flavel, which revealed
that there was jealousy between the
Oregon state pilots and the tug boat
management The state pilots, it
seems, when they board an incoming
vessel endeavor to induce tho cap
tains to not patronize the tugs. Dur
ing tho ensuing debate which was
participated in by Messrs. Sibson,
Corbett, Macleay and Dodd, it was
shown that the trouble did not exist
until the state pilot boat was put in
On motion of Mr. O. H. Dodd, a
resolution was passed to the effect
that the board had full confidence in
the management of the tug boats
now operating on the bar.
On motion of Mr. Dodd, "Tho im
provement of the Columbia river and
its tributaries, from the bar to the
head of navigation," will be the sub
ject to be discussed by the national
board of trade. Tho secretary was
also directed, on motion of Hon. H.
W. Corbett, to prepare the latest com
mercial statistics concerning trans
portation on the Columbia and its
tributaries, as -would bo useful, and
forward them to the national board of
trade, which meets on January 12th.
