Talking about C. W.Fnlton's letter
in the Oregonian, last Saturday's
Fortland Journal of Com merce makes
a statement that if true is a surprise
as regards tlic statement and the be
lief that prompted the remarks. The
Journal publishes the names of five
prominent Astorian3 including one
specially deputized official, and says
that each one of those five prominent
Astorians '"have expressed to us their
firm opinion that it would not be pos
sible to Ret a jury of any kind together
in Asfrfria that would convict a man
for a breach of the salmon fifhinglaws.
In other words it would not be possi
ble to secure an honest jury in As
torix" Slurs on Astoria arc common
in Portland papers but this is the
first time that in a respectable Port
land paper appears a direct statement
that the slurs on Astoria arc uttered
and sustained by Astorians themsel
ves. If leading cinnerymen, an ex
mayor, and a btate official tell the ed
itor of a newspaper that twelve men
in the city of their residence cannot
be found to honestly and faithfully
administer their duties as possible
jurymen, it may be time to inquire of
these gentlemen upon what condition
or circumstance they base their belief.
With no more than passing allusion
to the proverb regarding the bird
that dirties its own nest, it is in order
to say that these Astorians in their al
leged statements of the outcome of
imaginary circumstances are mis
taken. No case of the kind referred
to lm been brought before a circuit
court jury in this city but has been
tried on its merits, and decided in a
way that left no room for carpiu g except
with those who used the privilege ac
corded all unsuccessful litigants, viz:
that pf "cussing" the judge, the jury,
and the counsel of the opposing side.
In the mean time the slur imputed
to this city by the residents mention
ed, if true, is on them and not on the
city of their residence.
KaxsisLos more newspapers with
odd names than any other State. Ilere
are a few of them: The Wano Rust
lei; Chcslertille Paralyzer, Chero
kee Cyclone, Cinnamon Sod House,
Like City Praii i Bog, South Center
Bazoo, Valley Falls lAicifer, Gar
den City Irrigator, Fargo Springs
Prarie Owl, Garden City Bundle of
Sticks, Dodge City Cow Boy, Green
field Cap Sheaf, Thomas Cat. In
Iowa is a town called "Woodbine, and
when a paper was started the editor
naturally called it the Woodbine
Tirincth. At Oakland in the same
state, the only journal in the place is
called the A corn. One in Spearville
is called the Spearville Blade. A
j.mong the papers with alliterative
names in Kansas are: T.tba Light,
Lenora Leader, Letado Ledger,
Klnkaid Knuckle and Simpson
A girl in Pittsburg went to work
in a knitting factory, and was aston
ished by the constant change of faces
round her. Becoming suspicious she
asked the foreman for her time at the
close of the second day. Ho gave her
a card, shoeing that she had made
two jackets and one dozen bustles.
When she presented the card at the
office she was told that she owed the
firm 20 ccnte balance for the use of
the machine and steam power. She
was credited with 20 cents apiece for
the jackets, 40 cents, and with 30 cents
for a dozen of bustles, making a total
of 70 cents.. She was charged 45
cents a day for the use of machine
and steam power, 90 cents, leaving a
balanca due the big firm of 20 cents.
Now the real terra incognita is the
under world. Daring navigation and
restless enterprise have ransacked the
odd corners of this great globe's sur
face. The track of discovery is now
downward. As yet the deepest bor
ings cannot be compared to the sting
of a gnat on the body of an elephant
It has been near four hundred years
since Colnmbus. What will one cen
tury do for discovery in the tinder
world? In view of the surprises of
the last half-century and their in
fluences upon modem life, who is bold
enough to predict the results of min
ing surprises in the next?
It is stated that a Kansas City .syn
dicate proposes to clean out the bar
at the mouth of the Brazos river, fifty
miles below Galveston, and make a
channel for the largest ocean vessels.
Jay Gould is said to be interested in
the scheme, intending to make the
mouth of the Brazos the terminal
point for his Southwestern system.

As Heard on the Souiul.
A gentleman who keep3 himself
thoroughly posted on steamboat mat
ters on Pngot sound tells a Post In
telligencer reperter: "I have it from
the best authority that U. B. Scott,
John Gales and Z. J. Hatch, have or
nanized themselves into a transporta
tion company, and have already com
menced making arrangements lor tne
construction of a propellor to run on
the louto between Tacoma and Port
Townsend, making the round trip
each day. Tho new boat i3 guaran
teed to be tho fastest steamer on the
Pacific coast, and must bs able to
outrun either the Olympian or Alas
kan. She i3 to be large and elegant
ly fitted up, and will cost considara-
ble money. You see this man U. B.
Scott has'made a fortune fighting the
Oregon Bailway & Navigation compa
ny on the Columbia and he thinks
the possibilities on tho Sound are
much greater than on the river. John
Gates is a steamboat man from the
ground up, and has had charge of
tho Oregon Railway & Navigation
company's boats on the Columbia
river for years. Mr. Hatch is well
known on the Sound, having brought
the Fleetwood around here last year.
If these men carry out their inten
tion, they will cut into the earnings,
of the Oregon Railway & Navigation
company at a great rate. If the fast
boat comes ovor I shall apply for the
position of running her. The men
engaged in tho enterprise would nev
er think of bringing an inferior boat
to the Soud. They will have the
fastest or none at all."
