;f i . At a meeting of the railroad com
mittee last evening at the chamber of
commerce rooms, a comparison and
compilation of the lists made an ag
gregate of about 120,000, this exclu
sive ot Col. Taylor's donation of
$5,000 worth of terminal facilities,
and John West's 32,000, which has a
proviso of location appended. That
is to say the list represents 120,000
cash, and the work for the com
mittee is to raise $30,000. It is ex
pected that some of that will be raised

A young carpenter, Jas. Ellsworth,
is reported by the News in jail at
Vancouver, W. T., awaiting an exam
ination as to,his sanity. Last Satur
day he was put off the regular boat
from this city at the mouth of Lake
river for his queer conduct At Union
he created another disturbance,
frightening several women and at
tacking men who approached him.
Finally he was knocked down with a
club. For two or three years past
Ellsworth has been a resident of Oys
terville. He recently "popped the
question" to a young lady of that
place, and his hand being refused, he
disappeared the next day. This is
believed to have unsettled his mind.
Instantaneous photography has just
been employed by S. W. Gardner to
demonstrate by optical proof the fact
that the upper part of the wheel of a
vehicle in motion travels more quick
ly than its lower part He has taken
an omnibus wheel en route, and in
this photograph, while the lower ends
of the spokes immediately adjacent
to the ground are not perceptibly un
sharpened by the motion, the tops of
the upper spokes show an angular
motion corresponding to about ten
degrees. The photograph also most
successfully expresses the fact that
the wheel it represents is in rapid
motion. Instantaneous photography,
at the rate it is going on, will soon
have no more worlds to conquer.
The break in the Clear creek dam,
says the Oregon City Enterprise, has
caused a dispute between the fish
commissioners and Mr. Paquet From
Mr. Day we 4earn that Mr. Paquet
came away from the work on some
business, intending to return and
spend some time filling in to strength
en the structure. In his absence water
was turned into the dam and the gates
closed to throw it into the race and
raise it to a certain height After
thirty-Bix hours the dam broke. The
commissioners claimed that it was
Mr Paquet's place to fix the break,
while he claimed that their turning
in the water without his permission
was a virtual acceptance as the dam
broke through no fault of his. He of
fered to repair it and warrant it for
six months for 51UUU, or to give nis
time and board himself to oversee the
hands, the commissioners to pay the
hands. As the dam is being repaired
it is likely that the latter proposition
has been accepted.
Eeports from New York seem to in
dicate that the new Northern Pacific
directory is not having such an easy
time of it after all. The bitter fight
which was kept up all summer for the
control of the road was supposed to
ltave come to an end at the annual
meeting on the 15th of last month,
and to have been settled by the com
promise which admitted Villard into
the directory as a sort of mediator
between the two factions. Meetings
of the directors are being held daily
in New York, however, in the endeav
or to arrange matters pertaining to
the lease, of the O. B. & N., and the
proper loan of from $5,000,000 to $12,
000,000, But they do not appear to
be having the smoothest kind of a
time of it, as nothing has been agreed
upon. It has often been stated that
Yillard and Wright could agree no
better than oil and water would mix.
Stories are also floating about New
York about a row between Villard
and Belmont, and the prospect is
that the end of the great fight between
the two opposing factions will con
tinue as long as the discordant ele
ment is in the directory.
The following is given insertion as
the quickest and snrest way of ascer
taining the information sought for.
Any one having any knowledge of the
matter will do the writer of the letter
a favor by writing him regarding his
Moncton-, N. B., Oct. 4th, 1887.
I see in The Weekly Astoician of
Sept. 24th, which came to hand yes
terday, a notice of the death of Lem
on McKay in the hospital. I think
it must be my brother, Lemuel C.
McKay. Ho left home about thirty
three or thirty -four years ago and has
never been home since. He was in
all parts of the world. He went to
the Pacific coast from New Zealand
in October, 1879. He was in the life
saving service at Fort Canby and af
terwards at Shoalwater bay. I have
a ,'great number of his letters. He
was a native of Princetown, Prince
Edward's Island was born there on
August 1st, 1833, which would make
him 54 years of age the 1st of last
August. He subscribed for The
Weekly Astorian soon after going
to Oregon and has had it sent to me
The Astobian is addressed to
"Arch'd McCoy," which is a mistake.
My name should be written Archi
bald McKay, or A, McKay. Howev
er, I have always received the paper
all right I have not received a letter
from my brother Lemuel for some
time, and think that the Lemon Mo
Kay, whose death was noticed in The
Astorian of the 24th Sept., must be
my brother the name Lemon being
a mistake for Lemuel.
Would you be bo kind as to make
enquiries at the Forts and the hos
pital and give me all the information
you can respecting him, and the
injuries he received causing his
death, as stated in your paper. Did
he leave any property, and was his
life insured? All the men here in
the government railroad employ are
insnred against accident by the gov
ernment, and as the Forts are gov
ernment institutions it may bo the
same in your country.
By making enquiries and writing
me all the information you can you
will confer a great favor on me and
all his relations and friends.

a rousing lecture on Phrenology, Hu

Liberty Hall was packed with an audi

the entire lecture, which was one of the
best ever delivered in our city. After
the lecture the Professor examined the
heads of two subjects on the staie and
hit their traits of character with won
derful correctness. He delivers auoth

doubtless, draw a full house, lie re
mains during the day at Liberty Hall,
where he gives phrenological examina

New York, Oct 14. Funeral serv
ices over the remains of the late min
ister Manning were held this morn
ing in Trinity chapel. Bishop
Whipple officiated. The pall bearers
were Gen. Sherman, Gen. Beaure
gard, J. Floyd King, E. D. Viele, R.
W. Gilder, Percy Roberts, J. Peirre
pont Morgan, Henry R. Jackson,
Gov. Green, of New Jersey, Boswell

the services the body was sent by ex

widow accompanied it, and where the
interment will take place.
Paris, Oct. 14. The order reliev
ing Gen. Boulanger from his com
mand and placing him under arrest
directs that he be placed under close
arrest for thirty days: during that
time the ministry will decide whether
he becdeprived of his command or
not. The radical members of the
chamber of deputies to-day decided
to make him a candidate of that body
if he resigned or was removed from
his command. Bumors are persist
ently circulated to-day that Boulan
ger had resigned his commission in
Toronto, Oct. 14. The Mail says
secretary Bayard intends to offer
commercial union with Canada as the
basis of settlement of the fisheries
embroglio. Either commercial union
or nothing. It was this cicumstance,
the Mail intimates, which caused Sir
John McDonald to give way to Sir
Charles Tupper as Canada's repre
sentative on the fishery commission.
Was the idea of commercial union
distasteful to Sir John McDonald?
DENIED A CHARTER.
Austin-, Texas, Oct. 14. The Mata
dor Land and Cattle company, incor-.
porated in bcotland with a capital of
four hundred thousand pounds, has
been refused a charter to do business
in Texas. xVttorney-general Hogg de
cides that to grant a charter would
be clearly repugnant to public inter
ests and declares that even a domes
tic corporation could not get a char
ter for the purpose of purchasing and
owning real estate in Texas, when
such is their main purpose.
LOST AT SEA.
London, Oct 14. The British ship
Monarch, Capt Corbett, from Manil

Drews, Bedford and Crupp, were
drowned. The remainder of tho crew

SIR CHARLES SELECTED.
Ottawa, Oct. 14. Sir Charles Tup
per has been selected as the Canadian
representative on the fishery commis
sion. CASTLE GARDEN AFFAIRS.
Washington', D. C, Oct. 14. The
special report of commissioner Okie
in regard to the emigration commis
sion at New York City is said to rec
ommend a radical change in the meth
ods of conducting immigration affairs
at Castle Garden. Secretary Fair
child has the matter under considera
tion, and will act upon it in a few
days. There is said to be great dis
satisfaction over the present state of
affairs, and that the treasury depart
ment is disposed to abrogate the con
tract with the present commissioner.
ON BEHALF OF THE INDIAN'S.
Washington, D. C, Oct. 14. The
interior department has decided to
adhere to the rule in force not to is
sue permits to persons to enter the
the Indian territory for hunting, fish
ing, eta, and has recently refused to
issue permits on several requests.
The action of the department is influ
enced by the objections of the In
dians. Persons having important
business in the territory can procure
permits as heretofore.
In Brief, and to The Point.
Dyspepsia is dreadful. Disordered
liver is misery. Indigestion is a foe
to good nature.
The human digestive apparatus is
one of the most complicated and
wonderful things in existence. It is
easily put out of order.
Greasy food, tough food, sloppy
food, bad cookery, mental worry, late
hours, irregular habits, and nany
other things which ought not to be,
have made the American people n na
tion of dyspeptics.
But Green's August Flower has
done a wonderful work in reforming
this sad business and making the
American people so healthy that they
can enjoy their meals and be happy.
Remember: Nd happiness without
health. But Green's August Flower
brings health and happiness to the
dyspeptic. Ask your druggist for a
bottle. Seventy-five cents.
This Is Either True or Falsi.
Maine, after thirty-five years of pro
hibition, as statistics furnished by
her own officials prove, shows a larger
proportion of arrests for drunkenness
than Oregon. Portland, Maine, has
just about the same number of inhab
itants as Portland, Oregon, yet the
number of arrests in the eastern city
for drunkenness and disorderly con
duct has averaged for years over
1,600 per annum, while in the western
city the number has been and is far
less. Oregonian, 13.
