A thousand dollars is the quoted
price ot timber claims at present; with
the supply fully equal to the demand.
The present tendency is, in selling
realty in the city, to discard the old
fashion of selling lots 50x100 feet and
make the lots 25x100. The system has
A Columbia river salmon-canner
5ays he is going to pack his salmon in
glass, next year: great scheme: none
genuine unless the trade mark is
blown in the bottle.
Don Pedro is out of business in
Brazil. He is pretty well fixed, finan
cially: he i3 credited with being worth
830,000,000. He might come to this
country, and try for the United States
senate. He has all the qualifications.
To make your Thanksgiving dinner
taste better to-morrow, look, around
for some one who would enjoy one
as much as you, yourself, and see that
he or she is not denied the opportu
nity. Your own will be all the sweet-
Alii the motor lines, electric street
railways, cable car systems, and other
proposed devices of that nature de
serve encouragement, and hearty co
operation. Astoria needs rapid trans
portation, and adequate means in
that direction will build the city itp
Ham from Chicago, lard from Kan
sas City, corn beef from Omaha, eggs
from Iowa, butter from Hlinois, bacon
from San Francisco, job printing from
St. Louis, protection to American in
dustries is a great thing, in theery: it
it still greater and even more com
mendable in practice.
A deputation- of British Columbia
fishermen have arrived at Ottawa.
They will ask for the removal of the
entry tax on Chinese. They represent
that Chinese labor is essential to the
salmon packing industry, and that
without it the industry would col
lapse. The visitors will .also ask the
government, to remove the duty of 33
per cent, on mining machinery.
The Astoriax is in receipt of an of
iicial communication from the .gover
nor of North Dakota, and the gover
nor of South Dakota, denying all
published reports of suffering or
starvation in those twin common
wealths. Their excellencies admit
that things are a little rocky in some
parts of those infant states, but assert
their ability to pull through the win
ter all right, "We are glad to hear it,
and shall eat our Thanksgiving turkey
with a lighter heart, in the happy con
sciousness that no one in the fair land
of the Dakotas is destitute.
The Victoria custom house h;is re
ceived positive orders from Ottawa to
strictly enforce the recent order in the
council, prohibiting American ship
ping from carrying "Canadian bonded
freight This knocks out the O. E. &
Si. from all mis trade which come3
over American railroads. The Vic
toria board of trade is vigorously pro
testing against the order, as it is very
detrimental to that city. An endeaver
will be made to have the order re
scinded. It will hurt not only Victo
ria, but the whole province, as it will
give the Canadian Pacific railway a
monopoly of Canadian" trade. The
Union Pacific people last Monday, se
cured a British steamer to carry Can
adian freight in bond from Paget
sound ports to Victoria in the event
of the recent custom order prohibiting
the landing by American bottoms not
Coxokessman Fowleu of New York,
announces his intention to introduce
measures in the next congress to en
able the people to elect in their respec
tive section, postmasters, collectors
of internal revenue, custom house of
ficials and other federal officers.
Fowler says that under the present
system the wishes of the majority are
defeated in a great many case.s. Poli
ties are now everything in federal ap
pointments, when politics should not
be at all considered. The government
should ba only a business machine.
Local self government is the strongest
bulwark of the constitution. He
thinks under his scheme the best avail
able men would be selected for post
masters, without regard to party.
According to the bill, or constitutional-
amendment, which he proposes to in
troduce, the president would have the
ower to remove an officer who failed
to attend to his dnly or who proved
to be corrupt. After the re
moval the people shonld have the
pon er to select a successor, just as
they do in case of elective offices now.
At present the postoffice department
is the greatest of the government Sixty
thousand postmasters are all depend
ent for appointment on the will of
one man or two men. The power of
the postoffice is well nigh almighty
throughout the country. It is a sort
of secret confessional and the party
in power is the confessor. The Presi
dent has a kingly prerogative. He is
more of a king than many who bear
the name. The people should not be
dictated to by the President. Elec
tions such as described are the only
methods of making a government of,
for and by the people. The change
would have the effect of giving the
President more time to consider ques
tions of state, and relieve him from

Portland, Nov. 2C This morning
in the criminal court, district attor
ney McGinn moved for dismissal of
the indictments against L. G. English,
a young Sacramen tan chargedjwithob
taining money under false pretenses
by means of drafts drawn upon ficti
tious firms. Mr. McGinn's course in
una case was not prompted Dy a

DABES'G TRAIN ROBBERY.
St. Louis, Nov. 26. About VI
o'clock last night fifteen masked and
armed men boarded the south bound
Topeka and Santa Fe passenger train
at lierwyn station in the Indian terri
tory and cut the engine, mail and ex
press car loose from the coaches.
They then ran the train south two
miles, and threw the fireman off the
locomotive. Two miles farther the en
gineer was thrown off, and after run
ning four miles farther steam was
turned off and the locomotive '"killed."
Then the robbers began an attack on
the express car. The guard and
messenger fired some twenty
shots, but finally gave in after the
robbers had literally riddled the car.
The money stolen is between 20,000
and $30,000 and came principally
SHIP BURNED. ALL SAVED.
New York, Nov. 20.- The steamer
Energie, which arrived here to-day,
reports that at noon ou the 15th inst.,
off Nantucket, she spoke the ship A.
J. Fuller from Liverpool for New
York, which signalled, '"Have on board
crew and passengers of steamer San

The steamer referred to is possibly
the British steamer Santiago, which
sailed hence Nov. 17 for Hull.
Portland, Nov. 26. Capt. E. W.
Spencer, owner of the steamer City of
Salem, says he has a force of eighteen
men at work rebuilding that steamer
which is lying in the dry dock at
Oregon City. She will have a new
cylinder, timbers, deck guards, new
bow and repairs and alterations to
her house. The old set of machinery
will be completely overhauled and
she will be out and ready for business
in about two weeks. Captain Spen
cer says his Alar i7i route between
here and Maxwell's landing is flourish

SANDY OLD'S CONDITION.
A deputy sheriff who has occasion
to spend considerable time in the
gloomy precincts of the county jail
says: "Sandy Olds, the murderer of
Emil Webber is not as stout-hearted as
he appears on the surface. There are
moments when locked up in his cage,
and believing himself to be unob
served, he sheds tears and quietly be
moans his fate. He ha3 great hopes
of a reversal of judgment sentencing
him to death and thinks that the pun
ishment for the cold blooded crime
will not exceed a few years in the pen
itentiary. His friends still stick
closely, and so far he has not been
compelled to subsist on prison fare.
His usually pale face is paler than
ever, and his eyes are somewhat
sunken, but he his grown heavier
since being confined."
A SERIOUS BLUNDER,
A Lady Nearly Prostrated by & Pat
A kdy well-known In the "Western Addition
has been a great enfferer for years with in
digestion and dyspepsia. Struck with the
testimonial praising Joy's Vegetable Sarsa
parilla, aho cent ior a bottle. Tho druggist,
not bAYing it, talked thorn Into talringanother
mineral blood purifiers, tho effect of tho
emptying ol iodide- of potash into a stomach
already distressingly delicate was disastrous,
almost prostrating her bef oro tho mistake was
rectified. She then called upon Mrs. Fowler,
of S27 Ellis street, whoso namo was among
thoso cured by Joy's Vegetable Sarsaparilla.
Mrs. Fowler said it was true that it had cured
her. Again reassured, tho Tegetablo com
pound was sent for and gotten. Tho gentle

liver, kidneys and dlgestivo organs, and its
warm stomach, tonics, wero tho very things

like fiction, but the names can bo given if
necessary. Son Francisco Examiner.
The Old lYosder and XoTronder.
Captain Turner, of the lato steamer
Wonder, has his new boat that is to
take the old route of the old steamer
mentioned, nearly finished and will be
launched to-morrow. As she now sits
upon the ways, on the other side of
the river, just above the landing of
the Jefferson street ferry, she is one of
the prettiest shaped crafts that one
ever had the pleasure to see. The old
steamer Woiider is still on the way,
between the new boat and the water.
She will be relaunched this morning,
and her repulsive-looking hulk will
probably be sold to some man who is
looking for cheap hrewood, provided
any one can be found that will buy
her. The name of the new boat will
be the "Nowonder" and the Captain
has sent to San Francisco for the
flags and other "pariphanilia," with
the new name embroidered thereon.
It has been said, possibly by malicious
persons, that when the old steamer
was being built every one .was "won
dering" where he got the money, and
now that the new boat is built Cap tain
Turner is being credited with the orig
inal christening of the boat for obvi
ous reasons. Portland Journal, 2o.

"Another wonderful discovery has
been made and that too by a lady' in
this county. Disease fastened its clutch

withstood its severest tests, but her vi
tal organs were undermined and death
seemed imminent For three months
she coughed incessantly and could not
sleep. She bought of us a bottle of Dr,
King's New Discovery for Consump
tion and was so much relieved on tak

and with one bottle has been miracu

And Iuspeetors Edwards and McDermott.
Inspectors Edwards and McDer
mott, being questioned by an Orego
iiian reporter as to having allowed
the tug Fearless to go to sea after
having first forbidden it.
"The statement is entirely without
foundation," said Mr. Edwards. The
Fearless had never been forbidden to
go to sea. She was inspected last
September and found to be all O. K.
She has a Pacific ocean license to go
to sea. That is what she is for. She
is a bar tug. Parties who saw her say
that she had her white lights up, and
the green and red ones also."
"She had on board,"' said Mr. Me-(
Dermott, 'a full equipment of sail, ;
and could keep outside if she wanted
to. Captain Hill was not obliged to
take the chances of commg inside if
there was anything wrong with the
tug. The fact that the boat was fur
nished with life preservers, and that
the life boat, when it drifted ashore,
was just as it had hung on the davits,
with the oars lashed to the bottom of
the boat, shows that there had been
no warning of any trouble, aud that
when the end came it was begun and
all over with in the time you would
take to speak your name."
"Captain Hill had, I suppose, no
peer on the Pacific coast to-day," re
sumed Mr. Edwards, "as a bar pilot
or tug man. We suppose that he was
going in to take a ship out, as it was
his turn. How it happened can never
"One thing I will say, however, and t
that is that range lights should be es
tablished at the place. The bar there
is constantly shifting, and light3
should certainly be established."
Both of the inspectors agreed that
the accident demonstrates the short
sightedness of the policy which has
witliheld bar or range lights from that
dangerous bar. Captain Hill was in
and out of the bay frequently, and
knew as much about the bar as am -1
one could in the dark,
