The Alliance arrived Gray's harbor yesterday. in from Eastern apples find ready sale in Portland at S4.50 a barrel. That terrible north coast begins to get in its work early this season. The W. C. T.

The funeral will take place to morrow. The members of tho Western Ama teur band are requested to meet at the band room for rehearsal at 7:30 this evening. Messrs Reed, Thompson and Camp bell have had issued unto them their commissions as state fishjeommisaion ers. Tho pilot commissioners have not yet received their appointments, Is it a coincidence that the passage of the pilot bill, the combination with the Telephone and the attempt to cut tho employes wages down ten per cent, all came together in the coun cils of the O. It. & N. Co? What a thing habit is! "Lots" of folks went to the post office yesterday to get their morning mail, only to "drop" on the fact that there was niiey mail, about the time they got to postmaster Bell's headquarters. Bear and elk stories have been very scarce this season, no 3-clawed toed bear has showed up and no elk with another prong entwined in his horns. The hen with 28 cents in gold in her gizzard is still unheard from, the southern Oregon cougar and the eastern Oregon catamount are also still to hear from. Every year we have to do without mail for a day or so. If it isn't one thing it's another. We had supposed that this "winter," when the coldest day was as a day late in the spring would be back in the Mississippi val ley, that there would be no trouble in getting mail right along, but hadn't counted on the strike. Says the Kelso Ceurier: The shipment of smelt is very lively just now. Wednesday there were shipped by express from Kelso, 23,725 pounds, and by the steamer Kellogg 12,000 pounds. Yesterday the shipments were still heavier. The price has fallen considerably, and sales are now slow at half a cent a pound. The smelt business is a bonanza for the express companies. On the morning of April 30, 18S9, at 9 o'clock, it has been suggested that the church bells all over the country shall ring to celebrate the event of one hundred years ago, when the church bells thronghout the thir teen states rang out to call the peo ple to pray for the success and pros perity of the country under General Washington, that day inaugurated president of the United States. The river pilots passed a bill of tLeir own last Monday and it wasn't in the legislature either. The O. R. k N. Co. hasn't got everything their own way yet. The Portland board of trade is busy drafting a bill to be presented at the next legislative ses sion, transferring Portland to the mouth of the river. Just whether it will be vetoed or not depends upon who happen- to bo governor at the time. 'Rescue" and "Mollio", the two kangaroo hounds at Rescne No. 2's engine bouse, are a never foiling source of amusement to the boy3. "Mollie," however, appears to be de veloping objectionable traits. Though well fed she is constantly on the look out for food and of ttimes is not over ly scrupulous as to how she procures it. lira oiuer uay a citizen was qui etly proceeding homeward with a nice beef rib roast for his better half to. roast for the family dinner. "Mollie" smelt the meat and jump ing up knocked the roast out of the man's arms, and picking it up started at full speed for her favorite corner. The man took it in good part, and going back to the butcher shop bought him another roast. On Washington's birthday Presi dent Cleveland by n stroke of his pen added numerous shekels to the pock et of his arch enemy, General Ben Butler. The signing of the territory billhas made it necessary for the government to replace its 8000 national flags with new ones having in four additional stars, and the United States Bunting company at Lowell, Mass., of which Butler is the principal stock holder, enjoys the monopoly of its manufacture in this country, Jand is now hard at work making tho necessary 'material to meet the enormous demand shortly to be made upon it The average size flags used by the government is thirty by fifteen, and forty by twenty feet, varying in price from 827 This alone insured the bunting cor- poration an order of nearlv S200.000. and besides this there will be a large puuuc uemanu ior new nags. This demand tinder ordinary circum stances is over 2000 of the largest size flags n year. This year, due to the novelty of the additional stars the order will bo larger. The United States Bunting company is sure of half a million dollars out of the thing, and as Ben owns two-thirds of the stock of the company, his profit will be corresponding. The mill em ploys 700 hands, who from to day will work night and day. Captain Boyton's dres3 has been described thousands of times, but in connection with this another descrip tion is admissible. The dress is man- ufacturedfrom the finest vulcanized rubber, divided into two parts, the junction being at the waist. The pantaloons terminate iu a steel band over which the tunic fits with a strap over all. making a perfectly water tight joint On each thigh, on the breast, on the back and at the back oi tne nead, there ore five internal compartments, each having a sep arate tube for the purpose of inflat ing from the mouth. When incased in thisjsuit the only part of the body exposed is the face. A double blade paddle, which he uses at will, driving himself feet foremost, and his little iron Doar, modeled after the hull of an ironciad, named "Baby Mine," com pletes his sea-going outfit. This boat alone is a wonder. Sho is thirty inches long, twelve inches wide with a depth of hold of about ten inches, completely decked over with the ex ception of a hatch which is protected by a water tight cover. In her hold are stored signal rockets, thermom eter, barometer, chronometer, maps, charts, revolver, shotgun, ammuni tion, hatchet, rubber cement and patch cloth, bowie knife, small spirit stove, note book, pen and ink, cup, knife, fork, spoon, copper kettle, frying pan, quinine, cigars, brandy and ten days provisions. On her deck are fastened headlight, compass and watch, making this as complete an outnt as a transatlantic gray- nound. PERSONAL MENTION'. E. P. Thompson is in the city. Chns. Rohr goes to Brookfield. Mrs. and Mis3 Rappleyca have re turned from California. Councilman Fox and street super intendent Clinton returned from Portland yesterday afternoon. S. Wylie from the Nasel reports every prospect of a prosperous sea son in that section, which is rapidly filling up. A Ten Years' Sentence. Prof. Livingstone, recently convict ed of an attempt to commit rape, was brought into court yesterday morn ing to receive sentence. Ho had a chance to make a speech, and im proved the occasion. He commented freely upon the witnesses, the prose cuting attorney, the judge and the jury. Talking of the latter he ex pressed bis belief that one of the jury was all brain and no heart, another all heart and no brain. He went on quite a while, and at last stopped, being out of breath. Judge Taylor then started to make a few remarks, when Livingstone interrupt ed him, but the judge promptly stopped him. "You've made your speech," said he, "now let me make mine." He then sentenced him to ten years in the penitentiary. "All right. judge, all right," said Livingstone, "it is quite immaterial to me whether it is ten years or ten minutes.' He asserted his innocence of the crime of which he had been convicted, and at the conclusion of his remarks was led back to his cell from which he will shortly be taken for ten years confinement at the Salem peniten tiary.

The Telephone arrived at four o'clock yesterday afternoon with 154 passengers and a quantity of detained mail. She left for Portland at eight o'clock last evening, carrying a big lot of people, and all tho mail posted to the moment of departure. She will be down this afternoon, as usual, but will have no mail, nor will she take up any mail to-night Capt Scott's agreement is to bring the mails down on Mondays, Wed nesdays and Fridays. This he will do but Tuesdays, Thursdays and Satur days don't go. So that there will be no mail till to-morrow afternoon when the Telephone will bring down Fri day morning's xnaiL With the O. B. & N. boats the situ ation is unchanged. They are tied no at the Ash street dock in Portland and will stay tied up till the question is settled. Following is from yesterday's Ore genian: Banna the afternoon a delegation from the csDtains and engineers had a conference with assistant manager Cook ingham and superintendent Johnson, of the u. it. e N. uo., out no agreement could be arrived at. Mr. Cookingham wished the men to return to their duties till he could make some arrangement with his superiors east, but they refused to go to work till their demands were acceded to, and even fncreased them by advancing the wages of second engineers from $G0 to $75 per month. The officers and crews of all the boats were accordingly paid off and lost even ing there was no one about the boats ex cept the parsers and watchmen. The strikers feel confident that the company will be obliged to accede to their terms as nearly every captain and engineer on the rivers belongs to their association, and it will bo impossible to secure new men, as they must take out li censes and to do so must be recommended by at least three licensed captains or en gineers, whichever the case may require. The strikers have no ill feelings against the officers of the company here, as they know that the orders to reduce their pay came from the east and if the officers from whom it emanated had been fully ac quainted with the condition of things here it would probably not have been is sued. The order reducing wages did not reach the Snake river boats till yesterday and nothing has been heard from them nor from the bar tugs in regard to the matter. The whole thing comes from an ef fort to run things at long range. The order for reduction came from Omaha; it was a sort of snap judg ment; nobody was prepared for it; the employes were not told that after such a date so and so would be the case, but were notified of an instant reduction. This doesn't go with in telligent American citizens, and while it is a matter of serious inconven ience to this city, the sympathy of the majority of Astorians is with the employes in the stand they have tak en. If they hold firm the company will have to accede to their terms. Just What He Was There For. As fonny a thing as ever occurred in a court happened at Nanoleon. O.. before Judge Potter nnd a jury. A case was on trial, and an outsider seated himself on one of the punch eons at the far end of the Danel of jurats, there being no other available seat. When the defendant's counsel arose to address the jury he scanned tne race of each closely, and naturally his gaze was directed to the furthest man from him. who didn't haDnen to be a juror at all. Glaring at him, he began: "Gentleman of the jury. I want to know what this man (referring to the piainim in tne case; nas come into court for? What is his business? What right has he here? What is he seeking for? Again I repeat, gentle men of the jury, why is ho here?" The countryman imagined that the question had direct reference to him self, and when the lawyer paused to give duo weight and emphasis to the question, he jumped to his feet and hewled: "What am I here for, you cross eyed cock of the walk? What am I seeking for in this here court? I'll tell yon in short order, you weazen faced old sun of n gun. I've been here three days awaitin for my fees, and nary a red kin I git Pay me my witness fees, nnd I'll git out of here immegiately." This unexpected oration brnnalit down the house, and the lawyer never finished his able argument Cincin nati Enquirer. How Men Die. If we know all the methods of nn pronch adopted by an enemy we are the better enabled to ward off the danger and pospone the moment when surrender becomes inevitable. In many instances the inherent strength or. me Doay sumces to enable it to op pose the tendency toward death. Many however have lost these forces to such an extent that there is little or no help. In other cases a littlo aid to the weakened Lungs will make an me aiuorence between sudden death and manv veara of useful lif. Upon the first symptoms of a Cough, Cold or any trouble of the Throat or Lungs, give that old and wellknown remedy Boschee's Germau Syrup, a oarful trial. It will prove what thousands say of it to be, the "bene- acior oi any uome. The Lease Not Valid.
