JUKE 4. 1
A PATENT FALSEHOOD.
Astoria, if she bad railroad facilities,
rnuld be the chief seaport of the north.

for many years, if not always from be
cominfi a railroad point, by reason of in
aoceBsability. The mountains present

miina lievublican. May 31.
ErrHEB malice or ignorance prompts
the above. The statement is exactly-
opposite to the facts. There is no
difficulty in securing an easy grade
toward Astoria, from any direction.
Her natural location proves this. There
have been three surveys made, and
the latest shows that even were the road
run as straight as that from St, Peters
burg to Moscow, regardless of the
conformation of the country, that the
steepest elevation would be but 745
There are no "mountains," no '"bar
riers," and easy grades have been sur
veyed both directly to the. south and
up the river.
A newspaper claiming to be respect'
M should be careful. If the Repub
lican doesn't belong to that class of
journals that is beneath contempt and
unworthy of .notice, it will retract the
above statement clipped from an ex-
tended article in ita last issue to hand.
EltOTIC NO VELISTS.
TnE new style of feminine writers is
enough to make the old style turn
over in their graves. In that dear old
romance. '"The Children of the Ab
bey." Amanda, the fair heroine, con
cealed her love and pined away, and
the doctor recommended for her goat's
whey and gentle exercise. The new
school heroine would have had green
eyes, and would have held up her pal
pitating lips to a man to be kissed in
the most unblushing manner.
The new school of women novelists
have quite taken the breath away from
fiction readers of the good old time
It is even questioned whether
it is quite proper to allow
these stories to be read by well
brought up young men. Cer
tainly there are passages in some of
them calculated to bring a blush to
the cheek of delicate and modest man
hood. We must guard our young men
in these days when the world is
jo strangely turned upside down.
The literature of the fleshly school
l young women novelists may be
iaracterized as blood red .and sizzling
1st. It is furious. It is fast Itout-
Byron. It was left for young lady
writers to finally approach the verge
of indecency and step over.
These novels are a flower of this
age. The original writer of the
school is said to be "Ouida." But
if this English woman founded
the school it has shot so far
ahead of her as to practically flock by
itself. The only way to account for
it3 existence is to class it as an out
break on the part of young women,
after having been repressed and kept
within bounds of lady-like propriety
for so many centuries' The additional
incentive that the books sell may be
Few of these novels have any liter
ary "merit. , They are mostly a heap of
festering, blistering indecency. They
are simply nauseating.
The leaders of the school arc Am
ericans. One man is in the group,
Edgar Saltus, of New York. He is
perhaps not so fleshly wicked nj the
ladies are, but he is more profanely
wicked. He wrote ''The Philosophy
of Disenchantment." a quite unneces
sary proceeding, since, after reading
the novels of himself and his literary
s&ter3, there is nothing more left
in the universe to be disenchanted
It is said that Sir Charles Russell
has been offered SIO.OOO to deliver
fifty lectures in the United States next
season. When it is remembered that
Sir Charles receives 810,000 for his one
great lecture to the English Tories
andtheParnell commission, the offer
of the United States lecture bureau
seems rather indifferent

Portland, June a The steamer
Multnomah is lying in the dry dock
at Oregon City, being overhauled. The
O. R. & N. Co.'s lease of her expired

as she is put in first-class condition
again she will be turned over to her
owners, the W. S. Co. In her place
the O. R. & N. Co. will mit on the
steamer S. ff. Reed. This boat has

THE STEAMER "ALICE" SUNK.
Yesterday the little steamer Alice
sank at the boneyard, the water reach
ing a little over her decks. The boat
has been out of service about three
years and had been used as pump to
take a little water out of the barges
and other hulls that have been leak
ing. She ia a very old boat but her
machinery is still good and m fair
order. She has not been lin censed
for some time owing to needed re
pairs. To-morrow she will be raised
and perhaps a new hull will bo built
over her. The Alice was a private
boat of Ben Holladay.

Holladay, vice Joe Holladay removed

TUBE VS. KELLY.
Jas. Turk was arraigned in jus

charged with committing an assault
on Bunko Kelly. Ho was defended
by 0. H. Hewitt, who made an elo

occurred last Saturday afternoon.
Jas Turk and son Frank were walk

B street they met Jtelly: irank in

they clashed: old Turk stood by and
urged the kid to go for him. The boy
obeyed his parent's injunction. A
warrant was sworn out for Frank, but
he skipped out The old man was
then taken into custody. The counsel
thought the father should not be pun
ished for "following the dictates of
nature." The court fined the defend
