PE01I EUEOPE AND THE EAST.
Specials to Eeaders of "The Astorian."
Sax Fkaxcisco, Sept. 1G. The
state funeral of the late governor,
Washington Bartlett, to-day was
probably the most impressive and ro.
markabie one in the hiatorv of the
-state. At an early hour a gieat num
ber 01 people assembled m the vicini
ty of Pioneer Hall, and when the
doors opened hundreds availed them
selves of the last opportunity to look
upon the face of the departed govern
or. The day practically was regarded
as a holiday, and no public business
of importance was transacted. The
banks were closed, as were also the
federal and state courts. The chief
mourners and intimate friends, army
and navy officers and especially in
vited guests assembled in- Pioneer
Hall at 10 o'clock and proceeded to
Trinity church, where the body was
removed and service commenced at
11 o'clock. The ceremonies consisted of
the regular Episcopalian bervices for
burial of the dead, and conducted by
xtev. Dr. Jieers m a very impressive

BURNED TO DEATH.
New Orleans, Sept 10. Karly
this morning an explosion own red in
the grocery store of Dominick JMes
sino, at tlie corner of Eighteenth and
Dauphin streets, and a moment later
the entire building was on lire and
all escape from -the upper stories,
where Messino resided, was en I off.
The fireTnust have been burning for
some time before the explosion,
which caught by ignition of powder
which Messino kept for sale. When
the firomen reached the scene the
voices of the family could be heard
mingling with the roaring and crack
ling of the flames crying for help.
Every effort of the firemen to rescue
the unfortunate persons failed and
the entire famiby, consisting of Mes
sino, his wife and four little children,
were burned to death.
At Tillamook Head.
Under date of Septeini'pr 14th,
Geo. B. McEwau, of Seaside, writes
that he has just returned from a visit
to Tillamook head. "While rambling
along the beach, gazing at the tower
ing cliffs and watching the foaming
brenkers as they spent themselves
among the immense boulders, our en
joyment of this grand scene was disa
greeably marred by coming upon
the body of a Chinaman, where it
had been cast amoug the rocks on
the beach by the high tides, probably
eight or ten days ago. The sea birds
and wild animals had stripped the
flesh from the limbs and part of the
bod'. The "face was but little disfig
ured and some of the black hair yet
remained upon the head. There
were no clothes on the body except a
collar and a small piece of the bosom
of what appeared to have been a
gray flannel shirt. Whether the
clothes had been stripped from the
body by the sea or by some other
means I could not say. Not being
prepared to remove the remains we
left them undisturbed'
Mr. Towiie Gives a Little Adyire.
Mr. A. N. Towne, general manager
of the varions Pacific Coast systems
of the Southern Pacific Railroad Co.,
in conversation with a Ne?cs reporter
last Thursday expressed himself very
freely about Portland and her future.
'This is my first visit to Oregon,''
said he, "and I am well pleased with
it. Portland impresses me as being a
very substantial, prosperous town,
with a great future before it. But
I am informed that the people lack
that spirit of enterprise and progress
and that unity of action which is
characteristic of the westorn cities of
this country. When a worthy project
is presented, the press nud people
should work in harmony for its ac
complishment. If the newspapers
must quarrel, let it be with some of
your outside neighbors. They ought
to work together for the interests of

THE TEMPERANCE BANQUET.
The Last of the Scries of Meetings Con
dncted liy 3'essrs. "Ward and Hashes.
The series of revival meetings
conducted by Messrs. Ward and
Hughes, under the auspices of the
Rescue club, commenced a week ago
last Saturday, and have been attend
ed with an interest and success far
exceeding the most sanguine expecta
tions. Messrs. Ward and Hughes as
moral suasionists seem to be quite ir
resistible, and many who went to
hear them for amusement found
themselves moved to serious consid
eration by an influence as potent as it
was unexpected. The extra
ordinary interest aroused is
shown by the. fact that on no
evening of the series were there
ie33 than twenty - five sign
ers of the pledge, and altogether
about three hundred and sixty have
taken the pledge since the meetings
commenced. The Rescue club now
claims over eleven hundred members,
and is receiving additions to its mem
bership every day. It was decided to
give a farewell meeting and banquet
at Ross' opera house. From the time
the doors were opened until after
eleven o'clock yesterday evening the
floor of the largo hall and the galler
ies were crowded. The tables set in
the hall were spread with a bounteous
and attractive lunch comprising
everything required to suit all tem
perance tastes. As fast as one set of
banqueters rose from the tables
others took their place,- and the fair
waitresses fonud it no light labor to
supply the wants of their numerous
guests. The generous patronage ac
corded them was as high and unmis
takable a compliment as -the ladies
who furnished the banquet could de
sire. After the banquet there was sing
ing and exhortation, Mr. Ward clos
ing with an earnest appeat, to which
several responded by coming for
ward and signing"-the pledge. After
singing "The Sweet Bye nud Bye"
the assemblage dispersed.
The receipts of the evening's enter
tainment netted about S250, which
will be applied to paying the ex
penses inenrred by the series of meet
ings. The entire programme was carried
out to the satisfaction of the projeot
ors.and last evening's farewell meeting
proved a fitting finale to a course of
meetings which have been remark
able in their apparent practical re
sults. Messrs. Hughes aud Ward go to
East Portland today to continue
A Revelation by Yillard.
St. Paul, Sept. 15. Pioneer Press
New York special: All interests were
represented and entire harmony pre
vailed at the Northern Pacific an
nual election to-day. There was but
one ticket and that prearranged.
The stock voted by the Yillard party
was n revelation. Many proxies
given Mr. Wright were subsequently
revoked in favor of Mr. Yillard, and
some of the latter's supporters now
claim that when the vote taken to
day is announced to-morrow it will
show that he held the controlling in
terest It is certain that Yillard will
have much more to sa about the
management than was anticipated.
There is much anxiety apparent on
both sides. It is semi-ofiicially stated
that Oakes will succeed Harris, but
Yillard this evening denies that he
has an agreement with German enp
italists preventing him from taking
the presidency. It now looks as
though the Wright party, while con
fident of controlling the road, realize
that they have a stronger man to
fight than Elijah Smith.
Give Them a Chance!
That is to say, your lungs. Also
your breathing machinery. Yery
wonderful machinery it is. Not only
the larger air-passages, but the thous
ands of little tubes and cavities lead
ing from them.
When these are clogged and choked
with matter which ought not to be
there, your lungs cannot half do then
work. And what they do, they cau
not do well.
Call it cold, cough, croup, pneu
monia, catarrh, consumption or any of
the family of throat and nose and head
and lung obstructions, all aro bad.
All ought to be got rid of. There is
just one sure way to get rid of them,
that is to take Boschee's German
Syrup, which any druggist will sell
you at 75 cents a bottlo. Even if
everything else has failed you, you
may depend upon this for certain.
Ship Libelled for Damages.
The British bark NWt was libeled
yesterday by Thompson & De Hart
for damages in the sum of $3,700.
Libellants had a lot of bar iron and
anvils on board the Nith, and they
claim that a lot of salt and soda was
piled over their goods, and that there
was a leak around tho mainmast, and
the salt water trickled down through
the salt and soda to the great damage
of their iron nnd anvjls. Tho first
