City aud County Official Paper.
It seems there is something of a
hitch about the appropriation in con
gress for immediate prosecution of
work on the jetty at the month of the
river. Congressman Hermann in the
house succeeded in getting a special
emergency appropriation of -$75,000,
passed by the house of representative6
last Tuesday. This went to the sen
ate and ras not concurred in. Then
Senator Dolph introduced a resolution
into the senate, making an appropri
ation of S500,000. This passed the
senate last Thursday and now
goes back to the house for concur
rence. It is not likely that the house
will agree to it To our way of think
ing it would have been better to have
had the senate pass a bill concurring
with the one already passed by the
house; that is, appropriating S7o,000.
Then all that would be required
would be the president's signature to
make it a law, and the $73,000 would
be immediately available.
Half a loaf is better than no bread.
As it is now, there is no money for
present needs. Senator Dolph says
that $75,000 would not be an adequate
sum to even justify the resumption of
the work at the mouth of the river, as
it would be entirely inadequate for the
continuation of the work until the
passage of the river and harbor bill,
and he will contend in the conference
committee for a sufficiently increased
appropriation to enable the work to
be continued until the passage of the
general bill. If the conference com
mittee will agree, and the houso of
representatives would pass the half
million appropriation bill it would be
a grand thing, but it will be difficult
to get 103 members to agree to the
It looks as if one of the two bills
now before congress for the transfer
of the revenue marine service from the
treasury department to the navy would
become a law. Secretary "Windom
has written a letter to the house com
mittee having one of these bills in
charge, indicating that ho favored the
plan. It is also understood that sec
retary Tracy has assented to the trans
fer, and that opinions obtained from
some of the higher officers of the ser
vice show that they favor the change.
This unanimity of opinion is the sur
est influence in behalf of the proposi
tion, as heretofore the antagonistic at
titude of various secretaries of the
cabinet has been the only obstacle.
Some day in tho future Astoria will
want a new public building. This
suggests this consideratien: The ex
treme west will be obliged to make a
hard fight for congressional appropri
ation. Tho growth of largo towns has
been phenomenal. As yet our repre
sentation at Washington is small in
numbers. Only the combined pur
poses of the whole section can ac
complish the end. Counting tho two
Dakotas, Montana, Washington and
Oregon, there are fifteen growing
cities that want public buildings. Tho
cast must be impressed with the fact
that our needs are great and that it is
time wo had more of Uncle Sam's pie.
At a recent ball at St. Petersburg,
a lady iersonaled Miss Gnppe. Hcr
toilet on this occasion is described as
an Oriental costume, whose high head
dress bore upon it the names of the
physicians who have written on the
sickness and the chemists who have
largely profited by it Her dress was
a map of Europe, with the infected
districts marked and colored in vari
ous tints, so as to show the progress
of the malady. One of the most
prominent club3 in St Petersburg,
it is said, composed of nobles entirely,
voted the lady a substantial prize as
having designed an original and

admittance to the barn and sucking
the calfs blood. In this he was cor
