He said it was also desired to get an expression of opinion as to what disposition to make of the property ot the associa tion, should the association desire to discontinue active existence.

A special telegram from delegates Wiuton. Granuiss and May at Eugene, was received by Tun Astoiuan last evening, conveying tho important fact that the state encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic has voted to hold the tenth annual session at Astoria, which will be in February of next vear. This will bring a large American institutions. do that by reading newspapers printed in a foreign tongue. With all its faults the American newspaper is the great educator of tho American peo pie. This is the big year iu Oregon politics. Everything is in sight for the men who can be coaxed into running for office, aud who gracefully yield to the bland entreaties of admiring friends and al low their names to appear. Here and there is heard of one or two who open ly sav thev want certain nominations, bnt in general the practiced politician stands coyly, considering tuat it is manners to wait to be asked. From governor down to justice of the peace, the list is to be filled. The legislature will elect senator Mitchell's successor, which adds interest to the situation. For governor on the Democratic side there is but one candidate, but one possible nominee, and his name is Pennoyer. On the Republican side there are several men to choose from. Whether for president or governor or anything else, the Republican party always has a large and eligible list The Democratic party is necessarily more circumscribed in this respect and I always has a smaller number o avail- ables to choose from. The Republicans have for governor, I v tj rni i ir ti ,.i....ii. J. A. J-llUIlipbUll ilUU Villi XCJUiiaillUIUl; of Portland. Z. F. Moodv of Wasco, S. W. Blaisdell of Baker, and C. C.

Trenchard is being urged to accept the nomination on the Dem ocratic ticket for secretary of state, but it is doubtful under the circum stances, if ho will accept. Clatsop county is, however, entitled to repre sentation on the state tickets. For state treasurer, an office the salary of which is only $00 a year, I there are several gentlemen talked of. L W. Case, of our own county, is a probabl candidate on the Republican side: from eastern Oregon three men will come demanding recognition for their claims to the nomination for the stale Ireasnryship: Messrs. Wright, Meacham, aud Snodgrass. A good many think Wright's chances are bright. Tho Democrats will doubtless nominate Geo. W.

Gray endorsed Mr. Hobson's idea and suggested the reading of the resolution that had been adopted at a previous meeting anil which this meeting had been called to pass upon, either accepting or rejecting the idea. S. B. Smith moved that the resolution which had been read by secretary Holden, pass. J. H. D. Gray seconded the motion. The question having lwen put, Mr. Holden thought that while it would have been gralifving to the venerable originator of the Whitman monument fund, the late V. iL Gray, to have seen a 820,000 monument on the exact spot where the martyred Whitman fell, yet he saw no possibility ot such laud able idea being accomplished. He therefore favored tho ratification of the resolution. Colonel Jas. Taylor thought it was not proper to thus transfer the funds. With equal propriety they could be transferred to an institution at Port land, or Astoria, or any other place in Oregon or "Washington. At the time of the massacre this whole couutry w;is comprised in the territory of Oregon. Ho thought that the monu ment fund should be used in exact ac cordance with the original intention and made to commemorate not only the name and fame of Whitman, bnt of all those who perished at the hands of the Indians al the time of the massa cre. As to the Powers' bequest he thought that should le kept, aud the proceeds devoted to the establishment or a library at Astoria. ' Mr. John Hobson said that he had i gone to the scene of the massacre, in company with W. H. Gray, alxnit a J year ago. Tho grave aud mound were j The chair appointed J. W. Hume, John Fox, dos.

The Alaska salmon catch of 1889 is the largest yet known, says the Alas kan. Six hundred and thirty-five thousand two hundred and sixty cases, representing fully 6,000,000 fish, were shipped to San "Francisco, and the number of barrels of salted salmon was G,930, containing 200 pounds cfjeh. The total number of salmon, therefore, was not less than 0,250,000, taking five pounds as the average freight of the fish in the marketable cofiditioa. The value of this catoji ex ceeds $3,000,000.

Thursday afternoon, the following res olution was unanimously passed. Resolved, That the ladies of this union read with pleasure tho manly and excellent letters of Mr. W. B. Adair in reference to the exclusion of prize-fighting or any form of pugilism from the proposed athletic club of Astoria, and they desire to publicly thank this gentleman and all others who courageously uphold the right in this community in the face of the overwhelming tide of evil which sets against it so discouragingly in our be loved city.

Brenham 'A'an Dusen said that among lus deceased rather ; and accounts were book i balance in the Pioneer fund, and in the Whitman fund AV. AV. Parker suggested that when the Walla AValla society had pro gressed far cnongh it would b? well to trausfer the fund on certain conditions, as, for instnuce, when tint association had expended $00, then this associa tion expend or transfer an equal I amount. J. AV. Welch favored the transfer because the graves would then be pre served and taken care or. He sug gested that a committee of five be ap pointed to draft a resolution relative to the matter. S. B. Smith said he had moved the original motion to get it before the meeting. Ho thought it would be anomalous to have the monument re moved from the scene of the events that it was intended to commemorate. There was one of the historic scenes of the Northwest; there had been enacted a bloody drama, and what place was more fitting for the monument in re membrance of those tragic events than on the very spot where they had been enacted? He favored the ratification of the resolution. After further desul tory discussion Judge Taylor drafted the following resolution, which was nnanimonsly adepted: Rcsolci'J, That a committee of two consisting of the vice-president of this association and another member to be selected by him, be appointed to con fer with n like comraitteo from tho Whit man Historical Society, and that Buch committee bo authorized to negotiate with said Whitman monument society, through its committee, for tho trausfer of the funds held by this society, for the erection of a monument to tho memory of Marcus AVhitman, and his associates, when said Whitman Historical Society shall have secured proper grounds there for and raised the additional sum of five hundred dollars, to bo used exclu sively for tho erection of such a monu ment. Previded: That in transferrins such fund, it shall be done in such a manner as to give full credit therefor through this society, to the pioneers who have been instrumental in Taising the funds now in the hands of the society for that purpose. Capt Gray moved that a committee ot three, consisting of F." J. Taylor, S. B. Smith, and W. B. Adnir lv nnnninfvl to take action regarding the associa-1 tion's property in upper Astoria, and make report at the annual meeting of the association. B. Tan Dusen was elected treasurer of the association. Capt Gray moved that tho money now iu the AVhitman fund bo transferred to AV. S. Ladd, the treasurer of that fund, to draw in terest; carried. He then spoke re garding the perpetuation ofthehis- lime and place of meeting be desig naled by the president, a voto of thanks wai tendered Messrs.
