A good many in Astoria are familiar
with the venerable form of judge S. 0.
Hastings, the California millionaire
and founder of the Hastings Law
College in San Francisco, as he comes
to Astoria very often, and is fond of
getting newspaper reporters to inter
view him. When ever he can get a

fill about ' going to" build an
observatory on Smith's Point, and
The judge is a frisky old fellow,
aged seventy-two, and his pretty
young wife accompanies him iu all his
travels. That is, she did, for she is
no longer an old man's darling ; she
has a divorce from her gray hubby.
She secured the divorce in Lake
port, Cat, last Monday, on the ground
of desertion. She is reported to get
S25.000, in cash, aud $300 a mouth so
long as she remains unmarried. Her
maiden name was Miss Lizzie Kunst
They were married in 18S5. Shortly
, after the wedding a woman named

Water and Iiand Pet.
The steam schooner Louis Ohen.
Capt F. A. Johnson, arrived last
evening from Tillamook. Dr. W. W.
Green and family, of Portland, were
passengers. They have leen at Tilla
mook and vicinity for two or three
weeks and are homeward bound. Fri
day morning while in a small boat at
Tillamook, Dr. Green saw a young
sea lion who had apparently lost its
mother, and was making piteous
cries. The boat was headed
towards the little fellow and as
soon as he saw them he swam for
them at once, and was picked up and
taken on board. He is evidently not
more than three or four days old, but
has a thick, soft fur of a silver gray
color, has no teeth, but will suck and
try to chew fresh fish, and takes milk
from a nursing bottle like any well
regulated baby. The doctor will try
and raise him, as tho little fellow
seems fond of people, likes being pet
ted, will lie down with children and
follow them around.
On the vessel are two more pets,
which belong to the captain. They
are two young black bears or cubs,
one of which was found afloat on a
log, and the other, which is younger,
was captured when his mother was
killed a few days ago near Tillamook.
During the day the cubs play on the
deck, seemingly perfectly contented
and at night they are confined in a
coop where they quarrel and iight in
regnlar bear fashion.

AN OPEN LETTER.
Astoria, Oregon, April 2G, 1890.-
Mr Dnut Sister: In your last you
say Astoria has a fine climate and
great natural advantages, and ask
"what are its social advantages?"
Let me see! Some one has said:
"Tho voice of the people is the voice
of God." Some one else has said:
"The newspaper is the voice of tho
people." Therefore, tho newspaper is
tho voice of God. Ls that argument
Now let us consult the voice of the
people. Two of them fresh from the
press lie before us.
In the first wo find among the
specials, "Sullivan will meet Jackson,"

glorious victory? It is true poor Tur

see how we are progressing! The
colored people are having their rights
properly recognized at last
Oh, I've overlooked a glove contest
It did not come off, as the police inter
fered. Horrid of the police, wasn't it?
Now, let's look at the home uows!
Ah! "Last evening the first exercises
of the Astoria Atldetic Association
were held in their rooms. Nearly 200
men were present and much interest
"The event of the evening was a fight
to a finish between Larry Sullivan and
William Scott for a purse of S250."
It is true, when the club was started
we were to have no prize fights, but
we must keep up with the times.
Never mind the details of the fight;
the other paper has two columns about
it, and both give full particulars. I
wonder where the police were while
they were fighting an hour and thirty
nine minuted, and Scott had to be
lifted up, being unable to help him
self? But, say; the authorities don't
allow anv prize fighting in Victoria, do
Why ! Are you not afraid you will
get so far behind in the march of
civilization that you will lose sight of
tho procession altogether ?
I know you have athletic games, and
lxiat racing, eta, but no prize fights !
Dear, dear !
Let me see ! Archie is eighteen. Old
enough ! How he would enjoy seeing
a first-class prize fight, that is, if he
could overlook such tilings as broken
jaws, eta, eta
Not that I expect he wonld ever
arrive at such distinction as to be
a participant ; but who knows ?
Wouldn't you bo proud to be pointed
out as the mother of such a boy ?
Our other social agents are several
churches with earnest pastors; but
200 men never find time to put in an
appearance there. As the papers
have very little to say about them wo
need not consider hem any great
factor in the social progress.
We have also a Y. M. C. A, and a
lyceum connected with it As the
"voice of the people" (newspapers)

of its debates, they can't amount to

We measured the riotous baby
Acainst the cottage wall;
A lily grew near tho threshold,
And tho boy was just as tall
A royal ticer lily,
With snots of purple and gold.
And the heart of a jewelled chalice
luo fragrant uew to hold.
Without tho bluebirds whistled
High up in the old roof trees,
And to and fro in the window
The red rose rocked her bees:
And tho wee pink fists of tho baby
Were never a moment still,
Reaching at shine and shadow

His eyes were wide as bluebells,
Mis mouth like a flower unblown;
Two little bare feet like funny white mice,
Peeped out from his snowy gown;
And wo thought with a thrill of rapture,
That yet had a touch of pain,
When Juno rolls round with her roses,
We'll measure the boyngain.
Ah. me! In a darkened chamber,
With the sunshine shut away,
Thronfih tears thot fell like a bitter rain,
we measured tuo boy to-day:
And the littlebare feet that wore dimpled,
And sweet as a budding rose,
Lay side by side together
In the hush of a long repose.
Up from the dainty pillow,
white as tho risen dawn,
The fair little face lay smiling.
With the light of heaven thereon;
And the dear ljttlo hands liko rose leaves
Dropped from a rose, lay still.
Never to catch at the sunshine
That crept to the shrouded sill.
We measured the sleeping baby.
With ribbons white as snow,

A DESTltUCTiYK SLUG.
In many gardens in this citv, the
owners are greatly annoyed by a small
slug which is very destructive to
plauts and flowers. These little things
are from three quarters of an inch to
au inch and a quarter in length. They
are sometimes called snails, which ls
not entirely inaccurate as a slug is a
naked snail, or a snail without a shell.
In some gardens they appear by
hundreds, and Judge Jewett told a
representative of Tun Astokiax that
most of Ids plants aud flowers had been
eaten offor the stems cut into bv these '
slugs, and that ho frequently killed
two hundred or more in a day.
An investigation shows that they are
of tho genus Limax, of the family
Jlelicidai, and are really a Prophy
saon, but smaller and "of a lighter
color than the L'rophysaon HempUlli,
which are described iu the most au
thentic books extant It is therefore
possible that this is a distiuct species
which are as yet iinkubwn to natural
ists and scientists.
Whatever may be the scientific or
accurate name for them it is safe to
call them slugs, and a fact that they
are doing much damage in numerous
gardens in this city. A similar ono is
said to be in the vicinity of Shoal
water Bay, and in such large quanti
ties as to do great damage to plants
They are covered with moisture aud
leave a wet and slimy trail behind
them. Various kinds of washes and
powders have been tried upon them,
but they aro unharmed, and can
apparently be killed only by mashing
A SIISr.lKEN SKIPPEK
Who Greatly Mistook UU Doarings.
Lost Friday evening the two-masted
schooner Gotmar crossed in and sailed
up the Washington chaunol to a few
miles above Chinook ioint, when she
found she was getting into shoal water
and let go her anchor. Yesterday
morning the tug Astoria went over to
her and asked the captain it he wanted
any assistance. He said: "Yes.
tow me into South Bend."
Captain McVicar asked him if he
knew where he was; he answered yes,
he was in Shoalwater bay. McYicar
told him, uYbu are crazy, man; you are
in tho Columbia river," when "ho re
plied, "The hell I am." After being
thoroughly convinced that he was in
the Columbia river he requested to be
towed to sea again, the Astoria towing
him out over the bar and well
out to seo.
The New United Shows.
Now that the huge pictorials des
criptive of the many wonders to be
seen in McMahon's Circus adorn the
bulletin boards and dead walls and
the small bills scattered everywhere
around and about announcing" its ap
pearance at Astoria on Tuesday April
29, quite an interest is Toeing mani
fested from the fact that it is generally
understood that among the many in
teresting features of this new show
will be found the largest animal in
the world, Queeri Jumbo, an elephant,
the consort and constant companion
of the late lamented Jumbo, at the
Zoological Gardens, London, for a
number of years, and now weighing
many tons more than Jumbo ever
weighed, and n much taller elephant.
The new arenic features will no doubt
attract the multitude where there is
so much to bo seen and that so un
usual and interesting cannot fail to
create intense interest.

don't think I could like any other town as well anyhow, and I know I
would not have any warmer friends anywhere.
That is, Til consider the motion of ray friends carried, and try in
the future, as in the past, to merit the support of my fellow townsmen.
Yours Anxious to Please,
Reliable Clothier and Hatter
