There were about a dozen newspa
per men in tho Republican state con
ventien: some of them helped formu

good repute in eastern Oregon.

Several residents of Gray's river
and elsewhere in Wahkiakum county
are naturally anxious to have passed
the bill introduced by congressman
Hermann, restoring in some cases to
settlers their homestead rights.
Should it pass it will be the means of
Baring $200 to many a man in this
northwest country, and in many cases
that is considerable of an object.
Being interviewed in Portland C. P.
Huntington, Chas. Crocker and A. N.
Towne said that they were merely
looking at the country, andwere non
committal and uncommunicative on
the subject of railroads. They thought
Oregon's climate magnificent, and
that Oregonians had as good reason
to advertise it among our attractions
as Californians had to advertise theirs.
It is only in a party convention or
similar gathering composed of men
from every part of the commonwealth
that one can realize what a grand
commonwealth we have, what solid
foundation for magnificent empire,
what boundless resources, wherein
each county possessing its own in
herent means of wealth is bound in
community tie3 of common prosper-

In his article on "Where to Spend
the Summer," in Scribner's for April,
Gen. Greely, chief signal officer,
makes a prophesy as to tho hottest
days in the year 1833. The Detroit
Journal, taking the matter up, has
ollered a prize of S500 to the person
guessing correctly, before June 1st,
what tho 3 days will be. Gen. Gree
ly immediately telegraphed his guess
to the paper, in accord with his reasons
in Scribner's for April.
The view from Portland's city park
is a grand one, comprising all tho
requisite elements of natural beauty,
and forming a scene that, so far as
the writer knows, cannot bo dupli
cated in the United States. At one's
feet lies the city, with its snires and
lofty buildings: farther on, the river
glistens: then there is a broad ex
panse of emerald forest, then n hazy
blue of foothills, and beyond loom up
three grand mountains. St Helens.

The "Mikado." as eiven by tho Ju
venile Opera company nt Ross' opera
house last evening, was thoroughly
enjoyed by n large audience. The
performers without exception deserve
praise; they each and nil agreeably
performed their respective parts; the
encores were numerous and hearty.
and the sprightly scenes were well
enacted. The music, so far as it
went, was goed: an orcli03tra is needed
to present the music as it should be
presented, and in that regard the out
fit was deficient To-night the fnvor
ite "Child of the Regiment" will be
presented with many attractive spe
cialties. Those who have not yot
seen those clevor young peoplo should
not miss tho opportunity. Reserved
seats at the New York Novelty store.
A talk with a good many b.wness
men and representative men i i Port
land impresses the writer with the
belief that Portland realizes th nood
of bettor commercial facilities in
tho way of water communication
than those now enjoyed, nnd that
Portland people also realize that thoir
interests are identical with tho inter
ests of Astoria, nnd that antagonism
is folly. So far as pbserved, tho gen
eral sentiment there, is: "Astoria
should do tho shipping bnsiness for
tho uoinmbia basin ana Wiluamette
valley; Portland cannot retnin it and
hope to compete with the Sound, and
the O. R. & N. Co.. should put on
such servioe a? would insure no great

All published accounts so far of the
telection of candidates for presiden
tial electors iu tho Republican state
convention last Wednesday night in
Portland, have been necessarily in
complete, and, by reason of haste, not
wholly correct A number of gentle
men bad been placed in nomination
by their friends in different parts of
the state, accompanied by very com
plimentary speeches, and seconded in
remarks equally complimentary. It
was not expected that the first ballot
would bo more than a trial of strength,
as tno several candidates came before
tho convention with good backing.
But when tho result of the first ballot
was announced, it was found that of
the 203 votes cast, Hon. C. W. Fulton,
of this city, had received 1G6. So
large a vote and so handsomo an en
dorsement deserves more than pass
ing notice. It was a substantial and
complimentary recocmition bv tho
convention of Mr. Fulton's fitness for

THE "TELEPHONE" NO. :
Capt U. B. Scott was found hard
at work last Thursday, finishing up
and superintending the operations on
his new boat, Telephone No. 2, now
building near Smith's sawmill, Port
land, and which ho expects to launch
about the let of tho month.
Carrying in memory the dimensions
of the old boat that went up in flame
last November, the first thought on
stepping aboard is: "this is a good
deal larger boat." And it is. The
Telephone was 170 feet long. The
Telephone No. 2 will be 200 feet long.
She is 3 feet wider than the old boat,
at the guards, and from the guards
up, 4 feet wider. Her lines are about
the same; there is an improvement in
the wheel and the arrangement of the
rudder; the hull is built with a Howe
truss all along under the lower deck,
her entire length, with solid bulk
heads, and a separate truss forward
of the boiler, and firmly fastened.
The freight capacity will be 300 tons.
On the upper deck the fittings, dec
orations, cabin and staterooms, (of
which there are 25) are different from
the former arrangement, upon which
they appear to be an improvement.
Every precaution is taken against
fire. In addition to government re
quirements, hose has been laid all
over the boat, with valves handy in a
dozen different plaoes, and the whole
boat can, if necessary, be almost in
stantly flooded with water.
Forward, the most noticeablo fea
ture is the widening of the deck, and
the substitution of two pairs of side
stairs to the upper deck, instead of
a center stairs as before.
"What will her speed be, captain?'
"She'll go twenty miles an hour, I
"Now, oaptain," was the next ques
tion, "Astorians ask very often, 'what
will be Capt. Scott's timo schedulo?'
and no httlo interest is felt in tho
matter. How is that, anyhow?"
"Well," said he, laughing, "you
may bo sure that as soon as I get run
ning on tho routo again I'll fix mat
ters as well as I can to accommodate
the Astoria people."
Messrs. Barnard, Seeley and Mc
Gillas wero also aboard, discussing
the furnishing and appointments of
the craft, and a small army of carpen
ters, machinists, painters and up
holsterers were busy getting hor
ready. She will probably mako her
first "trip about the 10th of next month.
To lie Taken To Alaska.
The tug Quickstep, formerly of As
toria, is being repainted and over
hauled on the beach in tho First
ward. It will leave in a few days for
Alaska, to engago in carrying supplies
to the cannery which will be removed
from the First ward soon. The ma
chinery is now being taken from the
cannery and will bo shipped north on
the next trip of tho Anco7i. Tacoma

The modes of death's approach are
various, and statistics show conclu
sively that more persons die from dis
eases of the Throat and Lungs than
any other. It is probable that every
one, without exception, receives vast
numbers of Tubercle Germs into the
system nnd where these germs fall
upon suitable soil they start into life
and develop, nt first slowly and is
shown by a slight tickling sensntion
in tho throat and if allowed to con
tinue their ravages they extend to tho
lungs producing Consumption nnd to
the head, causing Catarrh. Now all
this is dangerous nnd if allowed to
proceed will in time cause death. At
the onset you must act with prompt
ness; allowing a cold to go without
your attention is dangerous and may
lose you your life. As soon as yon
feel that something is wrong with
your Throat, Lungs or Nostrils, ob

"Another wonderful discovery lias

seemed imminent. For three mouths

I am going to toll you of the extraordinary
chango your Cuticcra Remedies performed
on mo. About tho 1st of April last I noticed
porno rod pimples like coming out ail over my
body, but thought nothing of it until some
time later on, when it began to look like toots
of mortar spotted on. and which came off in
layers, accompanied with itching,. I would
scratch every night until I was raw, then the
next night the scales, being formed mean
while, were scratched off again. In vain did
I consult all tho doctors in the country, but
without aid. After giving up all hopes of re
covery, I happened to coo an advertisement
in tho newspaper about your Ccticuba Rra
edies. and purchased them from my druggist,
and obtained almost immediato relief. I be
gan to notice that the scaly eruptions gradu
ally dropped off and disappeared one by one.
and naro been lolly cured. I had the disease
thirtoen months before I began taking the
Ccticuiu Kemedii-S, and in four or fire weeks
was entirely cured. My disease was eciema
nnd psoriasis. I recommended the Cuticcea
Keueoies to all in my vieinity, and I know of
a groat many who haro taken them, and
thank me for the knowledge of them, especial
ly mothers who hare babes with scaly erup
tions on their heads and bodies. I cannot ex
press in words the thanks to you for what the
CimcVRA Kemedies have been to me. My
body was corored with scales, and I was an
awful spectacle to behold. Now my tkls Is
as nice and clear as a baby's.
