Yesterday a letter was received by
county clerk Treuchard from the reg

cxplaiuiug why business is often de

cases than his office can well attend

paiers for land claims in this vicinity
are forwarded for publication.
Tiie rails for the completion of the
Astoria t Sonth Coast railroad came
down yesterday morning, and were
taken over to the lauding bv the
VTiltamiUe Chief. The absence of
the locomotive delays the delivery of
the rails, and hinders the completion
or the road, a lack of harmony thus
militating against the desired restdt,
which is to have the road finished by
July 1st to the beach. All that stands
in the way of completion now is the
lack of transportation of the iron a
few miles on the track.

organic law of the city:

provided for in this act, shall vest in the '
city in fee, and shall forever remain opj'n j

That was a good thing that the or
chestra at tho theater did last Tli;v5
dav night, though probably few
noticed it in the usual rush to the i
door at the couchision of the lost act.
They played tho "Shir Spangled Ban- j
ner' It is as it ought to be, begin- i
mug to be the fashion to play that .
national air at the close of JI public
performances. In England the na
tional anthem, "God Save the Queen,"
is played at the termination of a
theatrical, or operatic, or concert en
tertainment, and it is a good thing to
imit'ite The newspapers of the
American nation have succeeded in
having the American ilag lloat over
the American public school while it is
in session; and they are also Irving to
instil a little more patriotism into the
public mind by having the orchestra?
in theaters play the "Star Spangled
Banner,' at the end of the Iiat act in
the theaters throughout the country.
If they can get folks in Astoria and
Xew York and elsewhere to realize
how ridiculous it is to jump up and
shoot out of the building about tho
time the play is being summed up,
aud the actors are all grouped on the
stage at the close of the performance,
and before the curtain is rung down,
they will also add greatly to the com
mon stock of common sense.
Auv one who has been seasick knows
all about it, aud to an' ono who hasn't
description is useless. One oi our
most dignified judges has lately en
joyed his lirbt experience of ocean
travel, and is convinced that all the
stories told of the recklessness engen
dered bv seasickness, of the dimness
of their victims in the very j.iws of
death, and of their grim and ghastly
jokes in the midst of danger, unlike
the generality or travelers tales, can
be implicitly believed. Th" s!ea:n"r
on which this judicial trial trip v.ts
made is first class in eve.ry r v!, vx
cept that it sails on the uudul.it ing
ocean. Our distinguished tiaxeler
was assigned the best room on boa id
the one known in steamer paihnw as
"the bridal chamber." One or the
judge's gifts is a remarkable memory
for poetry, a line or so of which he can
generally call up appropriately jn any
emergency. Keport says that in the
middle watches of the night his honor
("in fine frenzy rolling") wa? heard
melodramatically reciting the invoi
tion, "Come to the bridal chamber,
Death," and then, continuing in wild
improvisation, "and come as quick as
yoncau, you d d old rascal! No
body's afraid of you here." And
the "awe-struck listeners, who had ever
personally diagnosed the disease,
knew that the crisis of its course had
come The convalescent now declares
that the only perfectly justifiable case
of suicide on record is that of lhe
woman who during a paroxysm of
seasickness jumped ovetboaul from
an Atlantic steamer. There are many
so called remedies for this terrible
malady, but the judge says the only
one in which he has any faith is to
stay on shore
Talking about this formal calling
and the conversation there attending.
The writer once knew a little girl of
1 years old who used to do a little
imitation that was full of humor.
She'd sit down with her hands across
her lap,on a foolstool,and pretend to en
tertain her mother, who, she assumed,
had come to call upon her. She
would begin about the weather and
ask after the children, and from there
she'd get on to a variety of subjects,
upon wnicu sue wonio uiscoursu in
the primmest way, and then she'd get
up and show her sister out aud say
how glad she was to have seen her
and how much she had enjoyed the
visit Then she'd toss her head and
say: "Tiresome weman: I wish she
wouldn't come bothering here." Her
mother said it was -very nearly the real
thing, only more amusing.
They were riding on the train. The
small "child was looking out at the
window, wetting her finger and mak
ing marks on the pane, and asking
her father, "What's that, papa?' and
before he could look the train shot
past it and it was gone He had been
fooled this way several times.
"What are "they doing down there
"And what's plowing, papa?'"
"What do they do it for?"'
"Thev put the seed in there,
it and it grows."
"Into grain. The seed is the father
of tho grain, just like what you see
over in the field."
"Papa" after a moment "where
were you buried?"
"Humph!" he growled, as he untied
a small package he had received by
"What is it?"
"It's my old fifteen cent jack knife
I lent it to a Chieago drummer the
other day to sharpen a pencil and he
carried it off."
"But he was honest enough to re

Before a man eon say there is no
God, he must be a great explorer. He
must be such an explorer as to make
himself divine He must possess such
powers as to bring himself up to the
level of Omniscience For if m his
own breast and mind and heart and
moral nature, it in his own intelligence
and will, he cannot find any evidence
of God, he may find it in nature
And, when he has searched with in
finite power and only that, there will
be yet before him the infinite eter
i uitics of time to aid Min in the search;
and thus he must be an omnipotence
in himself before he can stand up and
say, "There is no God."

Why does not the government send
in advance to every citizen a printed
blank containing all the questions to
be answered, with spaces for answers,
so as to give each citizen an opportu
nity to fill out the answers deliber
ately, as far as he can, before the ar
rival of the census officer? In this
way more earcful and correct answers
could be given aud much more time
saved to the census taker. We hope
the government will take these susr-
gfoiions into consideration before the
n"xt census is taken.
Frank Pixley is the authority for
the statement that tho Young Men's
Christian Association has invited him
l address their body on the subject,
"How to Get on in the World." The
idea of Mr. Pixley addressing the
Yottng Men's Christian Association is
sufficiently incongruous to bo a joke;
however, it is possible that the editor
of the Aryonunt is telling the truth.
Th'' invitation ma have been sent;
si ranger things have happened. One
em readily suppose, that the general
'erctnr of the association would be
charitable enough to concede to Mr.
Pilev :m honorable career. Dishon
orable men seldom attain success, and
it is alvns wiser Jo assume that the
aspersions east upon the honor or
men who have gol on in the world,
proceed from envy, malice and un
chnritableness. But to those who
know Mr. Pivley, the idea of his ad
dressing any honorable Iwdy or young
men on the subject or getting on in
the world, is a joke which should be
patented on account of its peculiar
and pungent humor. How embarras
ing for Mr. Pixley to bo asked the
method or his getting on! It is like
asking a man to testify against him
self, in a criminal case, it the young
men of the Christian association should
be really enlightened on the score of
the great journalist's methods. What
charming instruction Mr. Pixley could
give in complete letter-writing; what
hints concerning the proprieties of
life Mr. PKlej's young men get on
very i:isr. lnerc is encouragement m
the very wink of his eye, and that gen
ial newspaper smile which looks and
seems to say. "It's only business, you
know." Pixley is a nice old gentlemau,
with forgetfitlness or the code, which
is at times convenient No wonder
the editor of the Aryonaut does not be
lieve in prayer. How can such a man
confront his Creator when he must de
spite his very shadow when he meets
it under a lamp-light?
Beccnt judicial decisions, we are
glad to know, arc recognizing male
values. It is becoming a very expen
sive luxury for a corporation to Mil
the most ordinary man, and some very
heavy judgments havo been rendered
against railroads for accidents at
tended with loss of life Last week
at Albany, in this state, the S. P.R.B.
was punished to the extent of nine
thousand dollars for tho death of two
men. In another instance only six
teen huudred dollars has been paid
for a seven-year-old boy. An entire
family of cluldren was estimated at
ten thousand dollars. Quite recently,
after an exhaustive and protracted liti
gation, a San Francisco man has been
compelled to pay one thousand dollars
as the value of one of Charles P.
Duane's toes. This would indicate
that Mr. Duaue is a most valuable
citizen. If we multiply this toe by all
the others, and by his ten fingers
and such other limbs for the loss of J
which mayhem will lie we shall
have some idea of what it would cost
to have murdered him outright And
now comes a San Francisco woman
suing-tho North Beach and Mission
llailroad company for damages in the
sum of twenty-five thousand dollars
for tho loss of her husband, Peter,
who, while in a state of intoxication,
fell over the dashboard and ivas killed.
If Peter was worth twenty-five thou
sand dollars drank, what must hare
been his value sober? What Ins value
if he had been a sober man and not in
the habit of getting drank? Railroad
stoclts will decline if drunken and
careless men shall bo rated at these
extreme values. We call the at
tention of the Oregon Bailroad com
missioners to this feature of railroad
liability, and suggest wbetherit -would
not be wise to hx a rate for tho carrv
ing of drunken men and w&nen. If
they are so valuable and so risky of
transportation, they should be com
pelled to pay a corresponding tariff
Perhaps it would not bo amiap to per

Mis3 Minnie C. Hobson. whoso demise
in the very morning of life wo are called
to mourn, was bom and raised in this
vicinity. Previous to tho attack of iho
fell destroyer, consumption, bat a few
months ago, Micnio w&3 tho lifo andsonl
of her home, remarkably bright and act
ive for her ago, aud always a leader of
fan and frolic among her girlish school
mates and playfellows. She was pas
sionately fond of mnsic and bado fair
to becorao in timo an accomplished musi
cian and vocalist. Her last jonrney from
homo was undertaken in weakness in or
der to gratify her lovo for tho beautiful
and grand in her favorito accomplish
ment. In October last sho visited Portland
solely to hoar tho great Tiiberati and his
famous bnnd at tho Industrial Exposi
tion building. It was thu last public
musical entertainment she w.is destined
to attend, but tho sweet memory of tho
lofty and harmonious strains sho then
heard never left hor, and, on her sick
conch, in giving frequent expression to
those, to her, precious remembrances, her
imagination would often range upward
and onward, wondering if tho songs of
tho redeemed and tho harps of the saints
in glory which sho expected soon to hoar
above, would or could very highly
transcend tho songs and strains of gifted
mortals here below.
Minnio Hobson was a baptised child of
tho Presbjterian church, a member of
the choir, nud when in health a con
stant attendant at tho Sunday school.
Daring her protracted illness she man
ifested a marked Christian patience and
resignation to tho will of God, which
considering her naturally quick and high
spirited disposition, almost surprised her
devoted mother as well as tho many
friends who occasionally watched and
waited at her bedside.
Minnio often recited portions of fa
miliar Sabbath hymns on her sick bod,
and but n short tunc beforo death came
and asked tho parting breath, sho recited
from her favorite hymns, "Scatter Seeds
of Kindness," looking calmly in the faco '
of her dear Mother.
"Strange wo never prize tho music,
Till tho sweet voiced bird has flown.
Strange wo should slight tho violotd,
Till all their bloom Iris gone"
Her mind was perhap3 wandering,, hut
evidently sho w.is living over again tho
happy days of childhood. The end cams
calmly, and peacefnlly she passed
"through tho gates."
"Wo saw not the angels who met her
Tho gates of tho city wo could not see,"
hut wo rojoico to know that
"Ero sin could harm, or sorrow fade,
Death camo with friendly care;
Tho opening had to Heaven co
And hado it blossom there."
