THE FOUETII IN ASTORIA.
A Very Pleasant Celebration Iu This
The morning of the Fourth was
cloudy and threatening rain. Rain
had fallen heavily on the previous
day and every other day for about
four weeks, and the prospect for a
fine Fourth looked very dubious. For
this reason everything was provis
ional. No one madeelaborate prepar
ations, fearing it would be of little
use. Arrangements were all made
"subject to the weather," and as the
cioua3 rouea away evervone was
astir. By ten o'clock it w;n evident
that we would have a fine day, and at
once the whole town seemed to wake
to life. Banners and festoons were
hung oat, decorations went up, and
in an hour there was a vast transfor
mation scene, tho place taking on a
holiday appearance. The Western
Amateur band came marching down
from thejr room flinging martial
music on every sidennd setting every
one to keeping step as they went. A
parade was hastily formsd and in its
size and management showed what
would have been it the clouds had
only rolled by a few hours previously.
Tho procession as it was formed a
fine one, and its disposition and make
up reflects credit on those composing
' First came the band, preceded by
a mounted force of police and Alex.
Campbell who was grand marshal of
tho day, and who carriod his honors
with military precision. Co. 'H," 1st
Regiment O. N. G., whoso members
had been dancing at their party till
daylight, came next, presenting a fine
appearance, Capt. A. E. Shaw nnd
Lieut's Sherman and Wherity; and
after them walked Cushing Post No.
14 G. A. H.. and tha Womin's iMicf
Corps. Then came the Libeitycar,
with about 45 pretty littlo girN, taste
fully dressed representing the differ
ent states, and territories, surround
ing the Goddess ot Liberty. Those
who took part in this feature of the
parade were Mamie Clinton, Goddess

appearance. Tvo Ones engine which

and the hose cart of the tender team,
were covered with flags and flowers;

Tho procession, which was a long
one, yassed over tho route. Thous
ands of people lined tho sidowalks
and tho air was sulph'uron? with the
fire crackors and bombs. Never be
fore in any ono day wcro there so
many firecrackers, bombs, etc, set
off as yesterday, and never before
was the din so infernal. No ono
mindod the ordinance. The contin
ual rain had made everything out of
doors so wet that it couldn't burn
nnd tho usual precautions wore dis
regarded. The Chinese caught the
fever about noon, and burned about
2.500,000 crackers from that to sun
set. THE LITERARY EXEECISES.
Arrived at the armory, which was
auicklv filled by a standing but pa
tient crowd. Rev. E. W. Garner, LL.
D., uttered a fervent and eloquent
invocation to ti.e xtirono or Urace.
He was followed by Rov. G. O. Hall,
who in a clear nnd impressive voice
read the Declaration of Independence.
Col. L. F. Copeland, tho silver
tongned orator of tho Ke3'stone State,
was next introduced as tho orator of
the day, nnd for an hour held his
audience spell bound, with his wit,
eloquence and patriotism in au ad
dress which all who heard it say has
uover been equaled in this city.
By this time tho visitors nnd citi
zens generally felt like dinner, nnd
after tho inner man had been re
freshed the sport of the afternoon
IN THE AFTERNOON.
Tho day was a perfect one, the air
that was still was warm, and tho air
that moved was cool; there was a
srentie wmd from the northwest, and
a fleecy lace of clouds obscured the
direct rays of tho sun. The streets
were alive with people, the music of
the band being tho principal center
First on the list was a hub and hub
race betweon tho tender teams ot No.
2's and No. l's; won in 2G 2-5 seconds,
No. 2's winuing first money, S15, and
No. l's, second money, S10. Next
was run a wet test hose drill, against
time, by No.-l's teams running 200
yards to the hydrant, lay -300 feet of
hose and get water, tho actual time
consumed being 3G seconds. This
wa3 followed by a 150-yard foot race
on Chenamus street, between Nace
Grant and R. Eberman, which was
won by the latter by about the width
of his body, in 16 4-5 seconds, Eber
man winning S20, and Grant S10.
The New York championship race
was then run by No. l's, who having
remained at homo from the Seattle
tournament, contributed two spirited
runs as their contribution to the day's
exercises. This was to run 200 yards
to hydrant, lay 300 feet of hose, take
out second section from hydrant, and
replace same with ono section from
cart; the time was one minnte and
forty seconds. A match game of base
ball, H. G. Smith, umpire, in the
court house yard, for 810 was won by
the Columbias, by a score of 9 to 8,
and then camo the Dnphunnies, a
motley crowd. O. Riohardson, J. N.
Laws and Leo Noe, tho judges,
awarded tho prizes as follews: J.
A. Kinnoy, Irishman, S25; Wm. Til
den, Undo Sam, S15; F. Osgood,
drnm major. 810.
All over tho city flags wero flutter
ing, and the shipping in tho stream
aud along the docks wero equally
decorated, tho 2Ianzanita and the V.
G. White being particularly lavish aud
tasteful in tho matter of decorations.
At sunset Capt. Shaw and a detail
officiated as at sunset "nnd noon in
firing a salute, and by tho time the sun
had disappeared behind the western
hills tho electric lights aud gas lights
in the streets wero rendered unneces
sary by tho glare from tho .rockets
and Roman candles which wero going
up in an nlmo3t continuous stream
from all parts of the city..
A largo and handsome lot of fire
works had been procured and placed
in position on the hill sonth of Gen
evieve street, and abont nine o'clock
the work ot touching them off began.
When they did go it was manifest
that tho usual programme was to ba
slightly changed, for to expedite
matters they all went off together,
and "while it lasted it was very
pretty." There was some lively
dodging on the part of those in the
immediate neighborhood, for when
117 pieces of fireworks aro going off
in 147 different ways, it is hard to tell
where it is safe to be, but fortunately'
no serious damago was sustained
beyond the I033 of a mustache and a
piece of an ear. Till midnight "tho
rocket's red glare, the bombs burst
ing in air gave nroof thronsh tho
night that the boys woro still there,
nun not till daybreak this morning
did tho city resiimo its usual qiiiet.
(SPECIAL TO THE ASTORIA.)
Iiavaco, July 5. Yesterday after
noon Mrs. J. W. Dunlap, two young
ladies aud Geo. Day wero walking on
weather beach. Dimlnp, the hus
band, well known up your way, came
up from behnd within 40 feet unno
ticed and fired thrco shots at Day
with a heavy revolver. Onp shot
struck Day's coat; the second passed
through Day's hat. Dunlap fled.
There is a warrant out for him and
it's believed ho sailed for Astoria in
his fishing boat.

Only "a Matter of Sentiment." .
Tho morning and evening gun will
probably again bo heard at military
posts, for tho army appropriation
bill in the house has been amended
to include an appropriation of S30.000
for that purpose. Tho order pro
viding for tho firing of these guns
upon tho rising of the flag at sunrise,
and upon its taking down at sunset,
was issued in HJuly, 18G7, but since
then no appropriation has been re
quired to continno the observanco of
this time honored custom, becanso at
the end of the war a largo supply of
powder was left on band. This sup
ply became exhausted, however, in
March last, aud since that time tho
United States have not been able to
tiro a gun as a salnte to the stars aud
stripes at tho different posts and res
ervations, with tho exception of forts
Monroe, Va., and .Leavenworth, Ivns ,
and at the military academy at West
Point, The only objection mado to
tho appropriation was that it was
altogether "a matter of sentiment;''
but Mr. Ford, who moved tho amend
ment, replied that "tho Washington
monument was erected a3 'ft matter
of sentiment1; the annual celebration
of the Fonrth of Jnly i.-T'a,iuatter of
sentiment.' Why, if wq tiro -to draw
the line iipon matters -,of sentiment
the flag itself is 'a matter of senti-1
ment.' " -Call.

Tho modes of death's approach are
