Schroeder, a man employed there
drove him over to the lauding, the

came over on the boat, and yes

the news that Schroeder was drowned

the ranch. He cannot understand how
the accident could have occurred, as
the water was hourly falling, aud was
of less depth when the team was re
turning in the afternoon, than when
they had crossed coming to the land

Schroeder may have gone out on the
pole of the wagon to fix the harness,

and ho drowned.
The drowned man leaves a wife and
seven children, the youngest being but
a few days old. The funeral will take

effect in keeping people away.
After the usual opening exercises
and business meeting of the club, a
very interesting literary' program was
rendered, interspersed with several
songs by a quartette, composed of Mr.
and Mrs. Boss, Miss Johnson and Sid

faction. There was an address by
Bev. S. M. Campbell, and recitations

Brief Remarks Regarding Ills Career.
Edgar Wilson Nye was born in
Maine in 1850, August 25, but at two
vears of age ho took his parents by
the hand, and telling them that Pis
cataquis county was no place for them,
he boldlv struck out for St Croix
countj, Wisconsin, where the hardy
young pioneer soon made a home for
his parents. The urst year ne arove
the Indians out of the St Croix val
ley, and suggested to the Northwest
ern railroad that it would be a good
idea to build to St Paul as soon as
the company could get a grant which
would pav them two or three tunes
the cost of construction. The follow
ing year ne aaopteu trousers ana
made $175 from the sale of wolf
scalps. He also cleared twenty-seven
acres of land and raised some water
melons. In 1834 ho established
and endowed a district school in
Pleasant Yaliey. It was at this time
that he began to turn his attention to
the abolition of slavery iu the south
and to write articles for the press
signed ''Veritas," in which he advo
cated the war of 1SG0, or as soon as the
government could get around to it
In 18iw he graduated from the farm
aud began the study of the law. He
did not advance very rapidly in this
profession, failing several times in his
examination and giving bonds for his
examination at the next term of court.
He was, however, a close student of
political economy, and studied per
sonal economy at the same time, till
he found that he could live on 10 cents
a day and his relatives easily.
Mr. Nye now began to look about
him for a country to build up and
foster, and as Wisconsin had grown to
be so thickly settled in the northwest
ern part of the state that neighbors
were frequently found a s near as five
miles apart, he broke loose from all
restraint and took emigrant rates for
Cheyenne, Wyo. Here he engaged
board at the Inter-Ocean hotel and be
gan to look about him for a position in
a bank. Not succeeding in this, ho
tried the law and journalism. He did
not succeed in getting a job for some
time, but fin all hired as associate ed
itor and janitor of the Laramie Senti
nel. The salary was small, but his
latitude great and he was permitted
to write anything that he thought
would please people, whether it was j
news or not
By and by he had won every heart
by his gentle, patient poverty, and his
delightfnl parsimony with regard to
facts. With a hectic imagination and an
order on a restaurant which advertised
in the paper, he scarcely cared through
tho livelong day whether school kept
or not
Thus he rose to justice of the peace,
and finally to an income which is re
ported very large to everybody bnt
the assessor.
He is the father of several very
beautiful children by his first wife,
who is still living. She is a Chicago
girl, and loves her husband far more
than he deserves, ne is pleasant to
the outside world, but a perfect brute
at home. He early learned that in
order to win the love of his wife he
should be erratic and kick the stove
over on the children when he came
home. He therefore asserts himself
in his way, and the family love aud
respect him being awed by his great
ness and gentle barbarism. He eats
plain food with both hands, convers
ing all the time pleasantly with any
one who may be visiting at the
house. If his children do not behave,
he kicks them from beneath the table
till they roar with pain, as he chats on
with his guests with a bright and over
flowing stream of bon mots, which
please and delight those who visit him
to that degree that they almost forget
that they have had hardly anything to
In conclusion, Mr. Nye is in every
respect a lovely character. Ho feared
that injustice might be done him, how
ever, in this biographical sketch, and
so he has written it himself.
of the Discovery
of the
On May 11, 1792, Captain Robert
Gray entered the Columbia river in
the ship Columbia, of Boston, aud
gave the name of his ship to tho
"mighty Oregon." In 1S92 a century
will have elapsed and by that time,
two years hence, the states of Oregon
and Washington should celebrate the
event in a manner befitting two power
ful commonwealths which owe to
Captain Gray, the first discoverer of
Gray's harbor and the Columbia river,
the honor of making us members of the
United States of America.
It is not too soon for our legislature
to begin to take some action in this
mailer. Two year's timo is little
enough for Oregon and Washington
to get up a grand centennial celebra
tion aud we hope some of our patriotic
legislators will think of this matter
and take some action. Hon. Elwood
Evans, of Pierce, is especially qualified
to call the attention of the house to
this matter, as he has been so long
identified with the history of the Co
lumbia river and the states of Oregon
and Washington, and knows just the
right suggestions to make.
If Mr. Evans will start the ball he
will find plenty ready to take a hand
in making this centennial a grand suc
cess. Let us look forward to tho 11th
day of May, 1892, for a celebration
that will make the name of the great
discoverer as famous as that of Christo
pher Columbus, whose four hundredth
anniversary is to be celebrated
at Chicago by the whole nation.
Columbus made his discover' of
America in 1492 and Gray discovered
and entered the Columbia river in
1792. A hundred years is a long time
to wait to give a man justice but now
that honors are to be paid to Colum
bus let us honor Robert Grav. the
discoverer of the Columbia river.
The Jiornuifj Leader asks tho en
tire pres? of Washington and Oregon
to take up this matter and urge the
advisabdily of a grand centennial cel
ebration in May, 1892, to commem
orate tho discovery of the Columbia
by Captain Robert Gray. Port Town

Or the Coal And Oil Fields of Clatsop
Astoria, March 22, 1890.
"Rnrrnn Astotitav? Filled with n
desire to know the true condition of
the John Day coal and oil fields I
started out with long legged gum
boots over the most questionable road
ever constructed in a civilized com
munity. Clatsop county is full of
apologies for roads that have cost the
county thousands of dollars, that are
impassable when done. Is it not
time to "look a little outr'
I found Mr. Davis and others in a
sharp, steep ravine, with the simplest
form of appliances, trying to solve the
mysteries of the invisible depths of
They are at present using gas
pipe with drill on the end, and a
springpole, by which means they have
gone 115 feet with a 2-inch hole.
The formation is mostly"an unstrati
fied sandstone, rotten, and not very
hard, with occasional strata of shale.
The same may be seen on Young's
river, near the old mill. It is destitute
of fossils, so far as I have been able
to discover, which is somewhat singu
lar, as it must have been deposited
when lire was very abundant on the
earth. It belongs either to the cre
taceous or lower tertian'.
It is a granite sand containing a
good deal of clay, so much so that
some of it is almost plastic when
worked between the fingers. The first
25 feet of the boring was dug. At
that depth they came suddenly upon
a strong body of water which shot
some feet above the ground when their
tools were removed, and has continued
flowing ever since out of the top. The
water is strongly impregnated with
iron. At various depths small seams
of coal have been struck, and they are
now almost constantly striking these
small seams. At a depth of 100 feet
oil was struck, and they say that now
pockets are being tapped as they go
down. There can be no question as
to its being oiL 1 watched the hole
and saw the small drops of oil come
to tho surface and spread out in pre
cisely the same way that any oil would.
What kind of oil it is I am not pre
pared to say but am inclined to the
opinion that it belongs to tho petrol
eum family. The prospects for coal oil
and gas are I think good.
They will do well if they strike
coal under GOO feet I do not think
they will get any coal to speak of in
thepresent formation. That coal will
be found in paying quantities under
the greater part of Clatsop county, I
have not the slightest doubt I would
suggest that a company be formed
with sufficient money to go down
1,000 or 1,500 feet in good shape.
Nothing could be of greater import
ance to Astoria than to strike good
coal and oil in the immediate
vicinity. The railroad problems would
all be solved. After eating a splendid
home-cooked country dinner, prepared
by Mrs. Davfc, and wishing hotel
cooked grub in Halifax, I toiled up
and down, up and down, through the
grand old forest to old Astoria, look

Ia our forefathers !nys, i!niplcs were at
tributed to diseased blood. But modern
medicine has demonstrated that rich food
docs not create eruption? by fouling tba
blood, but retards digestion, which makes
the stomach torpid, and tho circulation
sluggish, on 1 in turn causes na enfeebled
action of the pores which congest orbecoms
pimply. The modern theory therefore is not
to treat tho blood, but tho stomach and liver,
and itis under this now idea, that Joy's Vege
table Sarsapariila was conceived. It is wip
ing the old " blood disease " idea out of ex
istence. A caso in peint: " I have had for
years spells of indlgostlon and dyspepsia and
tried nearly everything Finally I took one
of the leading sorsaparlllas. It caused pin
pies to break out on my face, which I
was told was caused by the potash . II earing
that Joy's Vesctable Sarsaparilla did not con

such a thing as style, or what
