YESTERDAY'S FOOT RACE.
Considerable interest had been tak
en in the 200 yard foot race between
Pete Grant and Ed. Kea, and consid
erable coin was up on the result. A
large crowd assembled in the vicinity
of the,0. R. & N. dock at three o'clock
yesterday afternoon, the track meas
ured off and all made ready for the
spurt which should decide who wins
the thousand dollars.
By half-past three there were 2,000
people lining the street. E. Z. Fer
guson, the referee, got them off in
good shape, Grant leading, and both
doing their level best to get first to
the outcome. When they got to the
150-yard distance it was evident the
raoo would be very close, and when
they touched the string they were so
close together that tho judges,
L Bergman and Wm. Bock, de
cided the race was a tie. There
was about $3,000 up on the race
altogether; the result was a surprise,
though, under the circumstances,
it wbb the only decision that could be
given. Some wanted the race run
over again last evening, but that was

- Hon. Philo Callender yesterday
celebrated his 85th birthday, and re
ceived the cordial congratulations of
hundreds of his fellow citizens and
many hearty wishes for many happy
returns of the day. Born in New
York state Jnly 18th, 1802, and com
ing here in 1819, he has during these
years been a resident of this vicinity,
and now at the great age of 85 his only
regret is that so many of .his old
friends and former associates have
parted from him on life's pathway.
The span of such a life as that of
Mr. Calender's is surprising when
one reckons all that has been
crowded into the years that he has
he was born, Thos. Jeffer
son, the third president of the United
States, was in office; Napoleon Bona
parte had just been elected consul in
France; Oeorge L was still on his
British throne bewailing the loss of
the American colonies; there were
only sixteen states in the American
Union; whati3 now Ohio and Illinois
and Indiana was "the northwest ter
ritory;" when he was two years old
Lewis & Clark were leaving St. "Louis
for the mouth of the Columbia; the
"Louisiana territory" was formed;
and when he was ten years old came
the war of 1812: in his early youth
there were no matches, gas, railroads,
steamships, street cars, Indian
agents and other improvements, and
many things that seem old and ante
dated to most of ub were hailed with
wonder long after ho attained man
hood. He wa3 35 years of
age when the first attempt was made
to run a little railroad, from Balti
more; he was uearly 4Q years of age
in the "Tippecanoe and Tyler too"
campaign, and 41 years old when the
electric telegraph was invented and
California captured from the Mex-
i the same as previous! sailed over in
races of like nature. The Parole
rounded the upper buov at HJ1: tho
Turk at 5:02; the Turk rounded tho
lower buoy at 5:44: the Parole at 550;
the Turk coming in easy winner at
6:05; time of race, 1 hour and 16 min
utes. Immediately after the race, another
race open to all Whitehall boats was
made up to be sailed over the same
course for the combined entrance
money at three this afternoon. So
far as heard from there are the two
boats that sailed yesterday afternoon
in to-day's race.
A Letter From District Attorney McBrlde.
Oregon City, Or., July 15, 1837.
To the Editor of the Asterian:
I am in receipt of several letters
asking whether the fishing laws would
be enforced, in oase the canneries up
on the Columbia river should con
tinue business into August
For the information of all concerned
I will say that so far as the district
attorney has power to do anything
the law will be strictly enforced, and
all persons fishing or canning salmon
during the close season will be vigor
ously prosecuted; and in this course
I shall expect to receive the assistance
of all good citizens who desire to see
the great fishing interests of the Co
lumbia river preserved and protected.

Give Them a PImnre!
That is to say, your lungs. Also
your breathing machiuery. Very
wonderful machinery it is. Not only
the larger air-passages, but the thous
ands of little tubes and cavities load
ing from them.
When these are clogged and choked
with matter which ought not to be
there, your lungs cannot half do their
work. And what they do, they can
not do well.
Call it cold, cough, oroup, pneu
monia, catarrh, consumption or any of
the family of throat and nose and head
and lung obstructions, all are bad.
All ought to be got rid of. There is
just one sure way to get rid of them,
that is to take Bosohee's German
Syrup, which any druggist will sell
you at 75 cents a bottle. Even if
everything else has failed you, yon
may depend upon this for certain.
