A. T. Brakke, 0. A. Hanson and

the Pacific Union cannery before the

The gardeners at and near Smith's
Point show what indefatigable indus
try can do. They have made what
was a tangled swamp a mot produc
tive piece of ground and are making
money supplying Astoria with vege
tables. A jepreaenative of the Standard
Oil Co., is in the city looking for n
suitable location for a warehouse.
It is thought a site can be found
west of Union town near Smith's
Point, which will be safer thnu one
nearer or in the city.
Two young men on Bear river Pa

but there is no place in the United
States that hard work will give a
mirer return than in this section.

Any man who wants honest work
or an opportunity to safely and prof
itablyinvest a little capital can have
a good chance in this state and north

who want such a chance, but who
don't know where to go to get it

U. W. Jb niton must nave made a
good, ringing speech at The Dalles,
as 'the Dalles correspondent of the
Facifio Express tries to be fanny in
his report of Mr. Fulton's speech,
because he saw fit to talk about the
tariff. Probably had he talked about
prohibition and the Mosaic account
of the flood he would have secured
that correspondent's approbation.
Good climate, pure air, rich soil,
freedom from floods or drought, good
schools and churches, peaceful law
abiding population, are among the
attractions and inducements that
Clatsop county offers to intending
immigrants. But it does't want any
croakers, grumblers, lookers for soft
jobs, or men who think the world,
owes them a living, but who are too
lazy to collect the debt
The committee from the Portland
board of irsde that investigated the
sailor boarding house "outrages"
have done just what The Astobian
prophesied they would do hunted
the trail till it led straight into the
cabin of the shipmaster and then
dropped it If they had just kept on
it would have got so interesting as to
savor of a personal controversy, for
the trail extends inland from the
shipmaster s quarters.
To illustrate what Clatsop county
land can do, the writer will cite one
instance that came under his obser
vation this week. A farmer on John
Dajs cnt 48 (forty-eight) tons of hay
from twelve acres of land last vear.
This hay he sold for S25 a ton. There
is 31,'JOO. from twelve acres, in one
year, 8100 an acre. Here are thou
sands and thousands of acres of -just
snch land in this countv.
Big crops all over the state. Crons
never fail in Oregon, and any man
that owns a bit of land has a sure
thing and need not be sick or fear
climatic trouble. Send this little
chunk of truth back to some poor fel
low that you know way back in the
Mississippi valley whocrawled out
from under the wreck of his barn in
the last cyclone, and who is now
taking quinine every day for the
shakes, and tell him it is the exact
In the United States senate last
Wednesday senator Mitchell's bill
providing for a survey of the lapids
of the Columbia river nt The Dalles
and Celilo, with a view to the con
struction of a boat railway, and np
propriating SoOO.OOO for "the com
mencement of work, passed the sen
ate. In view of the fact that the bill
may not pass the house as a separate
measure, the Oregon senators will en
deavor to get some suitable provision
in tne river and harbor bill for com
mencement of the work.
The Astoriak has no objections
to the Pacific Express publishing
items without -credit from these col
umns, being inclined to compliment
that clever journal on the good taste
shown in its selections. But it mod
estly, and in a spirit of proper humil
ity, asks tuat they be reproduced as
written. For instance; it is stated in
yesterday's Jixpiv that Astoria
spends S2.000 n year for the educa
tion of its children. Please make
that 820,000. brother Express, and
may Heaven's choicest blessings at
tend you and myriads of white robed
angels bo jour guides and guardians
to the shining shores of everlasting
It is thought that the river nnd
harbor bill which has passed the
house of representatives, will be re
ported by tho senate committee next
week. It is thought that the appro
priations for Oregon will be increased
as follows- Coqnille river, from 822,-
000 to 825,000. Ynquina bav. from
8120,000 to S150.000: for improvement
of Tillamook bay and bar. S5.200;
Willamette river, S15.000 to S29.000;
814,000 of which is deemed necessary
to be used for revetment of the Wil
lamette river above Corvallis. to pre
vent n cut off; mouth of the Colum
bia, from 5370,000 to 3500,000; lower
Columbia and Willamette, below and

8100.000; cascades, from S17D.000 to

THE NEW TELEPHONE.
She Will Arrive at Astoria To-Morrow.
The new steamer Telephone that
rounded Tongue point for the first
time one misty March afternoon in
'85 and went up in flame and smoke
at upper Astoria, one Sunday night
last November, will be sneeeeded by
the new Telephone which is hnishea
nnd thoroughly equipped, nnd which
will leave Portland for this city at
seven o'clock to-morrow morning.
There will be a big crowd to meet
nnd welcome her upon her arrival at
her dock. She will return at half
past two to-morrow afternoon.
The day that the Telephone was
burned, the night boat of the O. It k
N. Co. began running, it being a sin
gular coincidence; since the two
night boats began running in addi
tion to the two day boats, one leaving
here every morning except Sunday at
six o'clock, and another every even
ing except Friday at eight o'clock,
the question has been a hundred
times discussed; "Where is Scott
going to get in?n "What will be the
Telephone's trip card?"

What is this "nervous trouble" with
which so many seem now to bo af
flicted? If jon will remember a fow
years ago tho word Malaria was com
paratively unknown, to-da it is ."as
common ns any word in the English
language, yet this word covers onh
the meaning of another word used by 1
our forefathers in times past, bo it
is with nervous diseases, as the and
Malaria are intended to cover "what
our grandfathers called Billiousness,
and all are caused by troubles that
arise from a diseased conditiomof the
Liver which in performing its func
tions finding it cannot disposo of the
bile through the ordinary channel is
compelled to pass it off through the
system, causing nervous troubles,
Malaria, Billions Fever, etc. Yon
who are suffering can well appreciate
a cure. We recommend Green's Au
gust Flower. Its cures are mar
velons. Why The Numbers Are Changed.
The hotel clerk finds innuy curious
people. If at some time there lin
been n sneide in one of tho rooms, the
first dutv of the clerk is to see that
the newspaper reporter does not get
the number of the room. And if he
should, the uumbcr is changed as
quickly as possible. The reason for
this is that tho average arrival who is
posted on the suicido invariably asks
the clerk what room it occurred in,
and follows tho inquiry with tho re
mark that he''doesn't want that room."
There is hardly a first-class hotel in
the country that hasn't had some sort
of a tragedy, and the clerks are never
supposed to know what room they
