LIFE IN THE REVENUE SERVICE,
A Pleasant Visit to the
"Tbos. Corwlii ."
corjtTiiors .v.tr.i. orricEits.
In response io a kind invitation pre
viously extended, a representative of
Tn.E AsTontAN, in company with three
ladies, on Sunday afternoon paid a
visit to the revenue cutter, Thos. Cor
win. Signaling to the vessel from
the dock, for she lay at anchor in the
stream, a-boat was at once sent to the
shore and soon the visitors were borne
over the rocking waves and swiftly
ebbing tide to the stairway on the
starboard side of the staunch craft.
Lieutenant Ainsworth was on deck,
extended a cordial cresting and
led the way to the social
hall where Lieutenant Dennett
endorsed most heartily the greeting
alreadv extended and introduced the
parly to Capt. Hooper, in whose ele
gantly funiisbcd and comfortable
cabman hour or more was passed de
lightfully, lie has long been in the
service, has cruised extensively in dis
tant waters, more especially in the
norlhorn seas amid the icebergs of
that cold and sterile clime, and has
collected a great number of relics aud
curiosities. He in a remarkably conr
tcous gentleman, Avith a splendid edu
cation and cultivated mind, thorough
ly conversant with the history, peculiarities-,
manners and customs or the
inhabitants of all Use northern lands,
and communicates in a very entertain
ing manner all tho pouits of interest
in reference to the ninny curios he so
A long time was spent iu looking nl
the many eculiar articles and relics
in Capt. Hooper's elegant stateroom,
some of which are a3 follews: Indian
drum from Alaska, miniature canoe
from the Aleutian Lslandssmall canoe
from Cape Flattery made by an In
dian boy and ornamented with pic
tures of mermaids; miniature sledge,
spears, bows and arrows; Indian pad
dles of various designs, snow shoes,
singular looking Indian pipes, trimmed
with bead chaius of line work; straw
shoe3 for children, from the Corean
islands; pictures of various vessels and
of towns and villages in northern
lands; bead chains, head-dress, little
ornaments of bone and ivory, feathers,
plumes and hosts of other articles.
In the cabin, seats were taken and
on the large table were displayed ele
gant and valuable furs, including sable
skins, white fo, blue fox and red fox,
of numerous varieties, some of which
were beautiful in color and texture.
These had been brought from the vi
cinity of the Arctic wvan and from the
extreme northern chores of Asia,
America and Europe. There were
reindeer loots with 'sealskin soles,
which are said to be remarkably warm
as well as very durable.
One of the most valuable as well as
interesting articles was a large over
coat made of reindeer hide and lined
with fur. The top is trimmed
with gray wolf skin and the
bottom itl: woherino. Around
the lhiltoni are row.-, of rein
deer skin, ret1, aud white, oer 1,300
pieces in all, cut out '.villi a knife,
alxmt two inches long and one-eight
of an inch in width, all of which are
neatly -euod together and form a very
attracthe ti naming. This coat was
the work of Indians in Kamschatka,
and is very hcavj and warm.
Numerous hinall articles were then
hhown, among which were flint spear
heads, jade stone-?, a cane head made
of a Avhale'-s tooth, miniature dogs,
bears, seals and various animals carved
out of Ixmc and ivory, baskets of
unique design and workmanship,a bono
thimble bought from a woman
in the north ot .Asia, who
was using it while sewing,
a Hint spear head which was found im
bedded in a live whale, bone and ivory
beads aud ornaments, and other
strange things too munerous to men
tion. There was a large piece of ivory
which was a iortion of the tusk of a
hain' mommoth found on the Siberian
coast, 3 et some scientists claim such
animals do not live in cold countries.
Three singular bone articles wero
shown one of which was a curved
bone about a foot long Avith images
and animals carved all over its
surface, aud came from the north coast
of America. Another was a needle
case and a curious eeedle, with fine
intestines for thread, and came from
the north of Europe. Tho tliird
was about an inch wide
aud was ornamented and carved on
both sides, one side with animals of the
land and the other side with whales
and various fishes. All threo of theso
were found far apart, made by people
who had never seen those of the other
races, yet on each of them were rein
deers and other animals similarly
drawn and carved.
One valuable article was a Christ
mas present to Capt Hooper
from friends in San Francisco iu 1887,
and was made in Paris at a great ex
pense. It is about the size of a cubit
foot, and is a model of the stern of the
2704. Corwin, showing the screw
propeller. It contains a clock, barom
eter, thermometer and compass, orna
mented with gold and silver Inm
mings, aud bears a gold plate appro
priately inscribed with the names of

collection of photographs of vessels
and scenery in distant lands, Indian
baskets and beadwork, bone and ivory
ornaments, fish-hooks, silver braceleta,
quaintly carved, a stone cbopping
knife, Indian head basket and band,
and numerous small curios, as well as
a very ancient and valuable violin,
which he handled with considerable
skill, bringing forth good music
The party were escorted all over the
vessel, including the galley, where the
cooks are, a Chinaman, a Japanese and
a negro; the pilot house, where the
iire signals, charts, signal flags, trump
ets and compasses were examined with
interest; the armory, bristling with
muskets, rifles, revolvers, swords, cut
lasses, handcuffs and leg irons; and the
engine room, with its bright steel,
polished brass and glistening copper,
the very models of neatness and per
fection. On deck just forward of the pilot
house, one on the port and one on
the starboard side are two brass rifled
cannon, 20-pounder Dahlgreen guns.
The usual complement of small boats
are carried, while lead lines,
patent log, sounding apparatus, etc.,
are all on board and well cared for.
The officers of the ship are as fol
lews: L. C. Hooper, captain; John
Dennett, first lieutenant; J. C. Cant
well, second leutenant; D. J. Ains
worth, third lieutenant; J. E. Jeffers,
chief engineer; S. B. McLenegan,
and F. 11. Falkensteiu, second assist
ant engineers. Tho crew consists of
tliirty men, all of whom aro familiar
with the use of cannon, cutlass and re
volver. An excellent dinner was served, and
after that there was violin andbanjo
playing by two of the lady visitors,
who are also compositors on Tub As
touian, violin music by Lieut. Den
nett, and fine banjo music by Lieut
Cantwell, as well as a recitation by
the scribe. A full boat's crew, with
Lieutenant Dennett in com
mand, safely landed the party
on the dock. The pleasant
hours spent on the Corwin, tho
courtesy and hospitality of its gentle
manly officers shown to The Astoriak
representatives is gratefully appre
ciated, and the happy recollections oE
the occasion will long linger in mem
ory's casket as among the brightest
jewels of its joyous participants.
The Arlington Entertainment.
There was nioro hearty laughing
last night in the opera house, on the
part of the people, and more genuine
wit and humor by Billy Arlington,
than was manifested in the same place
on the evening when Bill Nye ap
peared. The bass solo, "Bocked in the
Cradle of the Deep," by V. Harris was
excellently rondered; the recitation,
"The Old'Actor's Story," by Miss Kate
Shivery, was highly creditable; the
guitar solo by Prof. Francis pleased
all, and the piano duett by Mrs. K.
Osborn and Miss Edith Conn was an
artistic effort. These were the local
Billy Arlington and wife as the
'Two Doves" wero very amusing and
were threo times recalled. Little
Baby Arlington gave two pleasing rec
ollections. Billy Arlington in his stump speech,
and again with banjo in song and joke
kept the audience in an almost con
tinuous roar, and mado everybody
happy. The Arlington's appear at II
wnco this evening, and will soon give
another entertainment here.
A Surprise Party.
Some of the many friends of Miss
Winnie McKean mado all the nec
essary arrangements, and last
evening gave her an agreeable
surpriso at the residence of her
father, T. S. McKean. Games,
social converso and dancing made the
time pass very delightfully, and all
were happy and joyous. Intermission
was given, during which choice refresh
ments were served, of which it is need
les to say that all were partakers.
Those present were as follews:

FEAES FOR FINLAND,
Tie RassiJcation of the Finnlsl
THE CHINESE TEAH RUSSIA.
London, April 5. The scheme to
convert Finland from a free
state, with the czar as constitu
tional sovereign, into a Russian prov
ince, with the czar as autocrat, excites
considerable comment in Europe
People generally have their eyes fixed
upon the Russian operations in the
Danubian provinces and on the Dard
anelles, to tho neglect of encroach
ments of the vast and restless power
in other directions. Russia is feared
by Sweden not less than by Turkey,
and Sweden looks to England, just as
the sultan does, for protection from
the grasp of Muscovite despot. The
Scandinavians are not united in feel
ing, for reasons apparent to a
student of their history. Be
tween Russia and Denmark thero has
for ages existed strong sympathy,
while Russia and Denmark regard
Sweden with unfriendly and the
former with covetous eyes. The Rusai
fication of the Finns, therefore, means
one more step in Russia's advance
toward an attack upon Norway and
Sweded. Finland was part of Sweden
for centuries. Russia first annexed
one half, and in 1808 seized the other
half, but not until after a heroic
struggle, which is commemorated
in tho grandest Scandinavian epic
of tho age. The eyes of Eu
rope were bent at that time
upon Napoleon; otherwise the Russian
conquest of Finland would have
held a place in history with the
throttling of freedom in Poland.
Some ot the incidents, as when one
Finnish soldier held a narrow bridge
for many minutes against a large
force of Russians, falling just as a
Swedish army camo up to the post
which his valor had saved for them,
compare with the noblest achieve
ments on record. People of this kind
will not yield their liberties without a
struggle. Tho western shore of Fin
land is chiefly settled by the Swedish
race, and most of these would either
fight or emigrate. As stated in a pre
vious dispatch, many thousands have
From Shanghai comes a statement
that Chinese are strengthening them
selves on their northern frontier
against an apprehended attack by
Rnssia China for several years has
been increasing her military force in
tho provinces adjoining the Amoor,
and stout forts have jbeen erected at
the points most likely to be threat
ened by Russian invasion. China
could throw about 300,000 of the best
troops of the empire into immediate
action in tho event of war with Russia,
while tho population to be drawn
upon for reinforcements is
practically unlimited. No word
comes from St. Petersburg as to
whether there is ground for Chinese
fears, but this silenco indicates noth
ing. Russia is not in the habit of pub
lishing to the world either her foreign
or domestic policy. Besides, others
have usually allowed rather than per
mitted their generals to undertake
movements that meant or led to war,
and especially has this been the case
iu Russia, where districts have been
absorbed and extensive hostilities car
ried on at various times within this
century without any declaration
of war against anybody. The
enemies, however, have been
half savage tribes, and khans with
little authority beyond the views from
their mud-built towers. Dealing with
China would bo a different matter, for
the Chinese army is vastly improved
in discipline and equipment since the
affair with Franco a few years ago.
But even in making war upon China
it woidd be entirely in accord with the
duplicity that characterizes the cabi
net of the czar to begin hostilities
throuch some commander whoso
course, it successful, might be
repudiated. On the other hand,
there is tho fact that tho dispatch
announcing Chinese military move
ments in the direction of the northern
frontier relates nothing new, being
simply a confirmation of the report
that China is keeping vigilant guard
ianship over the provinces in which,
more than a year ago, she had already
stationed the flower of her army.
Huntington Will Succeed Stanford.
San Francisco, April G. The
Chronicle to-morrow prints an inter
view with Senator Stanford. In
course of a discursive conversation he
say: "I shall tender my resignation as
president of the Southern Pacific com
pany at the annual session of the board
of directors to-morrow of next day.
It will bo accepted and unless he de
clines, my successor will be C. P.
Huntington. My only motive in re
signing is to relieve myself of the
active cares of the office. While I
have no organic disease I am troubled
at times with nervous derangement,
and consequently desire greater lib
erty of action. I shall remain in the
directorate and may probably accept
some authoritative appointment"

Discovered by Stanley.
Stanley says that during his recent
African expedition he came across a
new and interesting race of blacks, the
Wahoumas, who were absolutely Eu
ropean in type and very intelligent.
They appeared to be descendants of
the ancient Ethiopians, who settled in
some way not known to him in Equa
torial Africa. These people never
mingled with the aboriginal races, but"
kept their blood intact, considering the
ordinary negro beneath them.
