himself and senator Regan of Texas.
It is nuderstood that he traces the

of a diflicnlty among the correspon

rumored that Stewart and his col

Special by California Associated Pkess.
Chicago, June 22. The Great
Northern railroad will soon be ex
tended to the Pacific coast. The
only thing that delays the beginning
of the work is a definite selection of
the route. The money necessary for
the completion of the work has been
raised in London, where in two days
after the books were opened, SlfJ.OOO,
000 was subscribed.
Work will certainly begin on the
line to the coast before the first of
July. Surveying parties have been in
the field for a month, and have at least
three passes through the mountains;
and as many different routes. As soon
as it is decided what is most feasible,
the work of construction will begin,
which will give the Great Northern

WHAT A 3CAN COSTS.
Diary of a Householder Who SpeBt $40,000
la Twenty-Six Years.
What does it cost to bring up a fam
ily? A gentleman, whose experience will
bo recognized as having points in com
mon with other householders, has pre
served an account of the expense to
which ho has been put in rearing a
family of four children. The follow
ing statement recently entered in his
diary, is copied by tho Indianapolis
"To-day I close my diary. Twenty
six years ago I undertook to keep an
accurate statement of all ray earnings
and expenses, so that I might know
actually how much it costs to live in
the married state. Then all was an
ticipation. I and my young wife
counted our resources and our ex
pectations. I was receiving $15 a
week, with a promise of more. I
owned, a house comfortable enough
for frngal young people to begin life
in. We were spared house rent,
therefore, and our expenses have
never included this item. Betrospect
ively, I see that we have brought up
four children in comparatively easy
circumstances. My health has been
good and my earnings have been con
stantly received. -I now raceive $30 a
week and we still own the homestead
without any great addition lo
its wealth, except in an in
creased amount of furniture. I have'
little more money than I had when .H
rst married. Perhaps, all told,Tliavo
$3,d00 now of assets; then I had, per
haps, $2,500. We have never wanted
for bread. Sometimes we havo felt the
need of more money. Three of the
children are now making their own,
way. next ween me lonrtu graduates
at high school, having received the
same schooling that the others have
had, and will begin to look out for
"1 snail not necessarily be at any
more expense on account of my
children, and this diary properly ends
now. Would I be willing to go
through the same experience again of
rearing a family r 1 asked my com
panion, who has borno the greater
part, this same question, and I know
she spoke with a heart full of love,
but was compelled to Bay : 'Not for all
that money could buy would I go
through again what has been neces
sary to rear our family.'
''Expressed in dollars, the totals are
these! In twenty six years we have
received from my wages and inciden
tal moneys that came through my
wife and the children .$40,900 or say
$40,000 besides the amount of in
crease in the permanent assets. Given
a plant of about $3,000 and two em
ployes, man and wife, it has taken,
therefore, about $10,000 to each
man produced. This, of course
includes all employes expenses.
The plant is slightly en
hanced in value, but the employes
have seen their best days. The qual
ity of the goods is yet to be demon
strated. Prospects, happily, point to
cessation of labor and an increase of
receipts, but there is no certainty
about this. The employes are proud
or tneir work, but don t want another
"Some of the items of expense have
been these: Doctors' bills (twenty
six years), $2,100 (and all paid prob
ably the only instance on record);
groceries, average per week, first five
years, $7; next three, $9; remainder of
tho twenty-six years, $13 a week. For
ten years it has taken on an average
one pair of shoes per week for the fam
ily, including myself and wife. The
most annoying thingl have ever known
is the rapidity with which children
wear out shoes. Only ine thing ap
proaches it the high price of ch5
dren's shoes. I never could under
stand how, with all the civilization of
the age and the demand for cheaper
results, children' shoes have not'"ben.
reduced in price. The human -ahoe is
a failure. No man not rich can afford
to buy shoes for a family, and if I had
to do it I would go to Timbuctoo,
where neither horses, mules, camels
nor men are shod."

Berlin, June 22. Prince Bis

and when asked to give" his impres

Russia, he said:
"No concessions can be made to Ni
hilists who will be murderers one and

is to strengthen and sharpen the law,
to bring it to bear upon them with in
creased stringency. There can be no
question of yielding to those wretches.

"As for Egypt and Germany," said
Bismarck, emphatically, "I regard it as
an impossibility that these countries
should be at war. It is singularly un
likely that they should ever quarrel
seriously. Were that to happen it
might lead to a continental conmct,
even if Egypt should abstain from
taking active part against the United
States by sea or land. But this con
tingency is as widely improbable as
that we should draw swords against
Egypt. We are both fair dealing peo
ple, who know one another welL and
we respect one another sincerely."
Bismarck spoke favorably of Caprivi
as "a fine soldier, a man of remarkable
intelligence, and varied information,
and above all a thorough gentleman.
Caprivi's appointment a3 reichskang
ler, was an absolute surprise. He
accepted it from a lofty and loyal
sense of duty, free from any charge of
overweighing personal ambition. Mo
has a clear head, a good heart gener
ous nature, great working powers, and
is altogether a nrst class man."

ACROSS THE COLUMBIA.
Knannton anil Frankfort,
ASTORIA SEEXFIiOH TXEItirElt.
Though yesterday was not as fine
a day for an excursion as might have
been, in consequence of the rain and
the hazy atmosphere, yet a representa
tive of The Astorian improved the
opportunity of taking a view of
Astoria from the river and visiting the
Washington shore. Under tho guid
ance of Capt. J. BT. Lamley, the steamer
1Ve7i07ia was only twenty-five minutes
in going across toKnappton, six miles
over the broad Columbia river, where
several passengers were landed.
At the wharf of tho Columbia mills,
owned by the Northwestern lumber
company, were two vessels. One was
the barkentine North Bend, which is
nearly loaded with lumber, and the
other was the handsome four-masted
schooner Novelty, which had just ar
rived m ballast, from ban Jb rancisco.
Making but a short stop at Knapp-
ton, the steamer went up the river
about two miles to the new town of
Frankfort A substantial imrovement
is a long wharf which has just been
erected and reaches to tho channel, so
that large vessels can make fast at the
end and load or unload cargoes.
A tract of 203 acres was sold for
$7,030 somo time ago, but it has been
laid out in blocks and lots, with broad
streets, and lots are selling rapidly,
some of them bringing several hun
dred, dollars each. Three large two
story building3 are up, one not yet
completed, though tho lower floor was
used on Saturday night for a ball.
Tho front or store windows had not arrived,-
but the end was temporarily
boarded up, so the room could be used
for a dance.
Difficulty is experiencediu procuring
lumber, for though in the very midst
of timber, and surrounded on three
sides with heavy forests, there is so
much lumber shipped away, that it is
difficult to procure enough for home
use. ne original owner ot the tract,
after selling 203 acres as above stated,
reserved four acres for a homestead,
and now refuses $7,000 for it
Owners of Frankfort property feel
