If everything was reported it would
make funny reading, wouldn't it?
The funniest part of it is that those

The Christmas tree at the Method

awaits the bestowment of presents
during all of to-day. The tree is a

of the church. The church itself has
already been quite profusely deco

sharp, this evening. Singing,

by old Santa Clans, who presides
over the occasion, and disrobing the

happy hours. All are cordially in

There was a pleasant gathering at

leaves for Tacoma this morning.
About forty of his friends arranged
to give him a "send-off as a
mark of their appreciation and
esteem, and amid toasts and songs
and humorous speeches passed a very
Dleasant evening. About 1130 C. J.
Trenchard in-a few words of presen

gold-headed cane, which he accepted
and made a response in his usual
happy manner. It was late, or rather
-early when the party separated, with

FOUR MEN MISSING.
Fear Kxprewd as to Their Safety.
Last Monday four men started
from hero to go to the Wallicut river
Andrew Barry, Oscar Petersen, and
two others, Ericson and Johnson.
About 1150 they were abreast of Kin

river. Since that time they have not
been seen and it is feared they have
been drowned. The mate of the
Carmaethen Castle, which went to
sea last Tuesday, reported that

Aa Interesting Letter From n Former As-torlan.
Tho Victoria Colonist of last Fri

Judge Dawne matter. It says: For
ten days past Mr. Justice Dawne, of
Alaska, has boarded at Mr Monk's
restaurant on Government street
He is a tall, well made man. in good
clothes, top-boots, full whiskers and
gold spectacles. His identity was
not suspected until after the appear
ance of tho Cotonwt article on
Wednesday, .vhich tho judge read
while eating breakfast at one of the
tables. His actions then attracted
attention and he was afterwards rec
ognized as the fugitive. Yesterday
the wretched man changed a $20
piece to pay his bill, rolled up his
blankets and went out The last seen
of him he was standing over the rocks
that lead down to the harbor oppo
site tho Telegraph hotel. A requisi
tion will probably arrive,

cret Before leaving Wrangel for
Tongas, the judge's borrowing pro
pensity was again called into play,
and he succeeded in getting, as a tem
porary accommodation, the sum of
$250 from a gentleman in business at
that place. He represented that he
might want to use some cash in the
business he was going on to Tongas,
and the confiding friend readily
obliged him with the loan.
Poet Moody, B. C.,Dec. 15. Much
excitement prevails over the discov
ery of gold on the Coquitlam river,
three or four miles from here and only
a couple of miles off the Canadian Pa
cific railroad. Two brothers named
Hume, of new Westminster, it appears,
have been working there all summer,
and so secret were their operations
that nothing was known of it until last
week. They were discovered by par
ties from here, and even their own
brother, the foreman of the Qxiardian
office, wa3 not told of the find. Their
appliances were very deficient and not
at all suitable for catching much of
tho mineral. If under these circum
stances men who are favorably known
and could command the best wages
found it paid better to -work for -what
they could pan out with their insuf
ficient outfit, it is considered by prac
tical men that thero is enough dust to
pav well if proper sluices, etc, were
erected. For the past few da s large
numbers from here and New West
minster have visited the scene and
many are preparing to thoroughly
prospect the stream and smaller
streams emptying into the head wa
ters of Coquitlam lake, whence it is
believed the gold comes. A party of
gentlemen here have to-day started
two or three of the best miners in the
countrv. to thoroughly investigate
the matter, and the general belief is
that the diggings will pan out well, as
it has long been believed by many
that there was gold there. Corr. Or

A unique genius, that of Charles

The following is from a gentleman
who wa3 for many years an honored
citizen of this place, but who has for
sometime been a resident of New
New York, 14th Dec, 1885.
To the Edttob of The Asteriax:
I hare promised myself a hundred
times or less that I -would write a let
ter to The Astoeiak. But promising
to do a thing is not doing it. This I
realize, and so set to work. At the
outset let me say, that Oregonians
need not think that they have a mo
nopoly of wet weather. We in the
east have had a pretty good slice of
late. The ram here wets, and very
often does worse. Eain weather is
very unpleasant here, and we have a
good share of it. From now on for
the next three months when it is not
raining it will be freezing hard, so
hard that it keeps one busy running
after the plumber, heaping on coals
and trying to keep warm. But
enough about the weather, suffice it
to say all the bad weather is not in
Oregon. . .
"We .have had a delightful visit
from Mr. and Mrs. Mcintosh, who
are still here, and living within a
block of us. We were glad to see
them on many accounts, but especial
ly as we had from them an account
of all our Inenas now mey looKea
and -what they did. Mr. Mcintosh
has been busy with his patent Bkate,
and during his leisure hours, has
been doing up the city. Yon know
he is fond of music, and so he has not
failed to go where good music is to
be found. The Casino and the Star
and other theaters opened their doors
to him on week evenings, and on
Sundays, morning and evening, he
wended his way to church, where he
heard musio that was equal to any.
They are both in good health and
have stood the ordeal of travel and
sight seeing very well, and intend
this week to continue their travels
into the British provinces.
I am glad to be able to state that
business in the east is reviving very
fast Times now are very lively. Of
course it is the holiday season and
that accounts for it partly, but not
altogether. Large failures now are
nlmost unknown, and monied men
are regaining confidence. There is
nlentv of menev: all men want to
know is where to put it, so that it
will bring a moderate rate oi interest,
say four or five per cent This leads
me to say that if capitalists could be
shown that a railroad from Forest
Grove to Astoria would pay such a
rate of interest they would gladly
build it. But they must be shown
this; this must be brought to their
attention, and perhaps tho best way
to do this is through the columns of
TheAstoriav. This matter should
be agitated, should bo "written up and
talked about. Thi3 is one of the
chief ways of gaining public atten
tion. I had hoped that in the last
session of tho legislature your repre
sentatives would have brought in a
bill exempting such a railroad from
taxation ior twenty years, or some
bill granting state aid, but the Asto
ria railroad project seoraed to be en
tirely forgotten. Well, it Astorians
forget their own interests, others will
forget them too. I hear that Dr.
Kinney ha3 been trying to interest
San Francisco capitalists to take hold
of the coal fields in the Nehalem val
lev. I hope he may be successful,
and I believe he will be if Astorians
properly second his efforts. The coal
is there", aud good coal. Make cap
italists see this and they will get it
I wa3 glad to read an account of
The Dalles waterway convention. It
will do good. Congress is influenced
by such meetings, and the represen
tatives and senators are greatly
strengthened in their efforts by them.
People talk about your small repre
sentation in congress, and tell us that
the appropriations and influence are
in proportion to yonr representation.
It is not so. One smart man in con
gress can do moro and get more for
his state than hnlf a dozen -who lack
Ensh and tact. You know I am a
itchell man and advised your rep
resentatives to vote for him more
than avearago. I believe Mitchell
can do more ior uregon iuuu uuy
man I know. He has the energy,
and he has the tact Tell him your
wants: give him the facts and figures
and if anything can ue done m wasu
ington he will do it. He is an Ore
gon man not the man of a party or
a faction. I don't say he is an angel.
If he were, I fear his influence in
Washington would be small.
Evervbodv here is now busy get
ting readv for Christmas. Santa
Claus is galloping along at a furious
rate. Tho stores are thronged, and
are doing a rushing business. What
the people do with all the things they
purchase, and where they get the
money, is n mystery and a wonder.
The annual Christmas scene in Macy's
window always draw3 a large orowd

Doll boys and girls rush down the
