doing they are liable to arrest and fine.
Answer the questions promptly and
the work will soon be completed.

At the conclusion of the reading of

est, and that another party had offered

Wrecking Notes From the Port Towa
Puget sound wreckers intend
shortly to commence work upon the
hull of the old steamer Idaho, whioh
came to grief near Race rocks, last
year, and now lies in Port Townsend
bay. It is supposed that her boilers
and something else it is not known
what are till clinging to her, as a
clumsy weight attached to her bottom
prevents her floating in less than ten
fathoms of water.
The steam wrecker Whitleaw now
plies regularly between Race rocks
and tho outer wharf, Victoria, where
a heterogeneous mass of chains and
old anchors, broken masts and frag
ments of deck planking lies piled.
The grappling irons are tearing the
the old Barnard Castle to pieces,
and whatever comes up in their claws.
is at once landed. It is expected that
the wreckers will get to work upon
the more important part of the old
wreck before the end of the week.

A NEW INVENTION.
A Pecaliar Device to Assist FisncrraeR.
The Cape Ann Breeze, of Glouces
ter, Mass., describes a singular inven
tion and says the schooner Pioneer
will carry to Georges -with
her the coming trip something not
before found on a fishing vessel from
this port Its shape is something
similar to a steam boiler. It is about
five feet long. The frame is of iron
and is covered with a net-work of very
strong wire. In one end is a door,
through which it will be filled with
chopped bait It will then be fastened
io the vessel's cable, about 25 fathoms
from the anchor by a pulley. The
motion of the sea will wash bits of the
bait out &Q1 thus fish will be tolled
around die vessel. The machine was
invented by Mr. Silvine Monlsong, of
this city, who has applied for
.a patent on it, ana wno win go
on the vessel to superintend the
working of it He'is perfectly satis
fied that it will do all that is claimed
for it. The;result will be awaited for
with interest'-thy-all engaged in the
fisheries, Tjothiiabermen and owners.
Wkat Makes a City Prosperou?
An exchange indulges iu some good
observations as to the methods that
make a town or city prosperous or re
tards themTi It concludes that the one
thing tbatrmakes 'orcityprosperons is
the stability;-of its- business men.
Where each attempts to forward the
interests of the other he adds to his in
come as TrelL In towns where each
strives to knock the other down there
will be but few prosperous men. So
it is in every community. Where
neighbor is at war with neighbor
there will be poor straw stacks at both
places, but where all are at peace and
good will reigns there is happiness
and prosperity. Meanness never pays.
But we find a great many persons who
go to other towns to buy their goods
and pay more for them than they could
buy the samo of their home mer
chants. Some buy on credit of one
merchant and when they get a little

every effort of enterprise as a scheme

nothing calculated to increase the
interest of a town or county but

been known to carry customers

It has been known for such persons to
carry two or three hundred in their

to the bank and ask them to loan them
twenty-five dollars for a few days to
finish out a payment and allow, the

you who have money to spend with your

whero they struggled long in vain;
they are coming fron the cabin, they
are coming on to Oregon,where there's
plenty for them all. They are coming
from the southland, they are coming
from the north; from the valleys
and the monntains they in
droves are coming forth; they are
coming with their wives, they are com
ing with their hammers, with their
needles and their knives; with their
harrows and their planters, and their
pencils and their guns, they are com
ing with their fathers and their moth
ers and their sons. They are coming,
stout and slender, they are coming
short and tall, they are coming on
to Oregon where there is plenty for
them all, whero you needn't dig pota
toes with the saber or a dirk, where,
when the rain is badly needed, then
tho rain gets in its work; where the
rivers moan and murmur on their
journey to the sea, where the breezes
tackle corn-stalks as big as fences on
the lea. "Where the savage used to
wander, yearning for a crop of hair,
now the farmer takes his porker to the
nearest county fair; and tho corn is
gaily growing where the greasy wig
wam stood; where he burned the wail
ing captive now the poultry search for
food; and the people who are coming
to this pleasantest of all climes, show
a happy knack of keeping up with the
times; they will find a country beam
ing from the spring time to tho fall,
when they land in pleasant Oregon,
where there's plenty for them all.
Sam Jone.s' ELstitnato of Infidel;.
I'd rather be alow-down chain-gang
negro than one of your little infidels.
You won't be in hell two minutes be
fore you'll be hopping around in the
fire and yelling: ""What a mistako I
madeF' I have some respect for Bob
IngersolL because he can get 200 a
night for his lecturing. But some of
these little fellows are infidels for
nothing, pay S2 to hear Ingersoll and
board themselves. If you
don't like what Im saying, just get
up on your hind leg3 and slide out.
