PRICE blVE CENTS.
Cash, and One Price.
Having just completed the opening of our useful as well as our ornamental, our plain as well as our
decorated ware, we are now prepared for the trade in all its branches. Buying our goods direct from
the manufacturers, and always paying cash for them, we not only get them at regular trade prices, as
cheap as San Francisco or Portland dealers can buy, but we also get the cash discount; and if any other
dealer thinks he can undersell us. he has only. to start in, and we will agree that "the longest pole shall
knock down the persimmons. We guarantee our patrons that for quality and quantity our prices shall be
than any other house in town. Our sales of Christmas goods have been large, for which we return thanks
to our customers, but we still have a full and varied stock of as unique and beautiful goods as can be
found in town, and as we have said relative to other goods, we will not be undersold.
The expressions of admiration and satisfaction that have been made by those that have examined or
bought from us have been gratifying and assure us that our efforts to please the Astoria public are ap
preciated. We shall continue as in the past to try and merit the generous patronage bestowed upon us.
Call and see our Dinner Sets, Tea Sets, Toilet Sets, in great variety, Crystal Ware of all kinds,
Lamps, either hanging, stand, or hall in large stock, and in short, anything you want to buy.
Remember also that we are still in the grocery and provision trade and are ready to supply you with
anything you want in those lines as cheap as the same quality of goods can be sold by any other dealer.
So remember the place to buy is at

The rivers and harbors of the .state
have icceivcd but little aid from
congress, and the possibilities, of
the tjtate are almost beyond com
putation if their obstructions to
navigation were removed. The
Columbia river, the great channel
of commerce for the northwest, is
rendered unnavigable by obstruc
tions at the Cascades, above The
Dalles, and at Priest rapids. The
removal of these would make this
grand waterway the artery which
would float to the sea the rich
agricultural products of a region
of country unexcelled by any on
the continent and within the last
few years settled by an industrious
class or farmers. The mouth of
the river also needs aid from con
gress, for it is the natural outlet of
Oregon, "Washington and a por
tion of Idaho. The entrances to
our harbors should receive atten
tion, for, in the near future, as the
interior becomes developed, these
will become important as shipping
points for our products. There is
a large surplus in the treasury,
and the money could not be ex
pended in a more desirable manner
than by sending it in circulation
among the citizens of the republic.
This would be the means of quiet
ing the unrest among our labor
ing population, and would greatly
enhance the substantial wealth of
the nation. "We have two compe
tent senators in the upper house,
and no one doubts the ability and
energy of Mr. Hermann in the
lower house. It may be expected
that the east will almost stand sol
id against appropriations in the
river and harbor bill; but this ses
sion is on the eve ol a presidential
contest, and the west and south
may be able to bring considerable
pressure to bear upon their oppo
nents. If corporate influence had
less power at "Washington City,
the present session of congress
might be expected to do some
thing to develop the resources of
the country and relieve the press
ure of hard times; but like the old
East India company of England,
corporations in this era of our his-
