" I consider Ayer's Cherry Pectoral a
most important remedy
For Home Use.
I have tested its curative power, in my
family, many times during the past
thirty years, and have never known it
to fail. It will relieve the most serious
affections of the throat and lungs,
whether in children or adults." Mrs.
E. G. Edgerly, Council Blufls, Iowa.
"Twenty years ago I was troubled
with a disease of the lungs. Doctors
afforded me no relief and considered
my case hopeless. I then began to use
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, and, before I
had finished nnp lmttl fnT,l ,-Ai;..f r
continued to take this medicine until a
cure was effected. I believe that Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral saved my life."

A LOGGER'S NARROW ESCAPE.
Victoria, March 7. At a lumber
camp on Cortez island a logger
named Birdsell, while carrying a

A DISHONEST PROSPECTOR.
Youngstown, O., Mar. 7. In the
case of Peter Tj. Kimberly against
Charles D. Arms and others residing
here the United Statessupreme court
has rendered a dcoision in favor of
plaintiff. The amount involved in
the suit is Sl.200,000. Kimberly
claimed in substance that he had
sent Arms as his agent to Arizona on
a prospecting tour and furnished the
necessary funds; that Arms located a
number of valuable claims which
have since paid heavy dividends, and,
refused to make any accounting to
him for any of the transactions.
Arms denied that he was the agent
of Kimberly and claimed that what
ever investments he made were with
his own funds and that Kimberly had
no interest in them. Arms is in af
fluent oircumstances and recently
completed the finest residence in the
city, costing over 3100,000.
THE CANADIAN TARIFF.
Ottawa, Mar. 7. There are to be
no changes in the tariff. Scores of
deputations have been visiting Ot
tawa for weeks past, seeking every
chance imaginable. The flour men
wanted the government to increase
the duty on American flour from 50
cents to 1 per barrel, and Canadian
lumbermen, in view of the hostile ac
tion of congress, sought a reduction
in or abolition of the export duty on
pine sawlogs. Scrap iron and steel
nnd iron deputations also visited the
capital in vain.
DAKOTA WANTS A NEW GOVERNOB.
Bismarck, Dak., Mar. 7. Forty
five members of the legislature have
telegraphed president Harrison, ask
ing him to remove Gov. Church, at
once and to appoint secretary Mo
Cormack acting governor, the object
being to shut off more vetoes on the
part of Church.
RUMORS OF A FIGHT NOT CREDITED.
Washington, March 7. The dis
patches from Europe concerning a
rumored conflict at Samoa between
the German and American vessels of
war are not believed in official circles
here to have any foundation what
ever. The reports have, however,
created considerable talk, and com
parisons of the naval powers are fre
quently heard. It is contended that
the American vessels at Samoa are
amply able to hold their own against
the Germans. The German vessels,
while fitted with the latest improved
ordnance, are smaller than the Amer
ican ships and do not carry as many
men. Old naval officers are emphatic
in their declarations that in a conflict
the wooden walls of America would
be more than a match for the Ger
mans. BRITISH SPV SYSTEM.
Philadelphia, March 7. The Par
nell branch of the Irish national
league will submit toPresident Harri
son and Secretary Blaine a resolution
adopted by it and which will be sent
to every branch in the United States,
urging joint action by congress, re
questing the state department to de
mand of the English government a
statement of how it has carried ou its
spy system, military and otherwise, in
this country. This action i based
on the testimony of Dr. LeCaron be
fore the Parnell commission. The
resolution alleges that spies paid by
Great Britain are now employed in
the government departments and in
the United States army, which is
equivalent to a declaration of war. It
advises a demand upon England for
the names and aliases of all its spies
in this country.

Astoria, March, 7. 1889.
Editor of The Daily Asteriax:
Mr. Villard, Oakes, Elijah Smith
and the stock 'manipulators in
Northern Pacific and O. R. & N.
stocks and owners of city property
in Tacoma and Seattle W. T., are
playing their game to keep Oregon
bottled up, and tributary to their
own personal ends. The present
strike of the company to reduce
tneir employes' wages ten per cent
appears to a casual observer a lo
cal matter. But the final result I
think will show the financial inge
nuity anu generalship ot Henry
Villard who has laid and carried
out his first move to get control of
the U. It. A: JN. Uo.'s stocK, by us
ing eastern directors, who, in the
apparent interest of economy and
their exorbitant avarice, have or
dered the reduction of 10 per cent
on the salaries of their em
ployes. A strike was a
foreseen conclusion in the fertile
brain of this financial genius, who
has no doubt laid all his plans to
buy up the controlling interest in
the O. R. & N. Co., and at the
coming June election of- new di
rectors Henry Villard will desig
nate who they sball be, taking
good care that they shall be friends
of and work in the interest of the
Northern Pacific Railroad Co.,
who knew full well that it would
knock the bottom out of the stocks
of the O. R. & N. Co., which is no
doubt, in my mind, the object of
the manipulators of this gigantic
deal, to get control of the trans
portation of Oregon and "Washing
ton. Mr. Editor, my fear and pre
dictions in this matter may be
groundless. If so, no harm is
done; but these few words of
warning may fall into the hands
of some friends of Oregon, who
will use their best endeavors to
check this financial anaconda be
fore the commerce of our noblo
state is strangled and annihilated.
