A FEW WORDS OF FAREWELL.
I have sold my interest in The
Daily akd "Weekly Astoriax to my
friend and former partner, Mr. P. W.
Parker, who is now sole proprietor and
owner of this newspaper.
Ho and I have been together eleven
years, and to his integrity, ability and
patient toil, much of the success of
The Astobzax is due.
It will be nine years on the 30th of
next month since I took charge as ed
itor and business manager, and through
these nine busy years it has been my
solo aim and ambition to issue a news
paper that would be a worthy expon
ent of the city of Astoria, imbued sole
ly with a desire to fittingly discharge
the responsibilities of so important a
And now, as I write in this column
for the last time, the memories of those
busy years impel me to extend a fra
ternal farewell to the thousands with
whom I have been brought in daily
contact, and to assure them that not
the least of the pleasant recollections
of my editorial life is the memory of
the aid and co-operation 1 have re
ceived from the Astoria public, and
their generous appreciation of my in
Two years ago I found that the toil
incident to the issuance of a daily
newspaper where the entire office
work devolved upon me, was destruc
tive to my general health, and I felt
that success purchased at such a price
would be too dearly bought
Since then I have gradually eman
cipated myself from much of the work
of the office, and now that I have
completely disposed of my entire in
terest in the paper, I hope to regain
much of my former elasticity of mind
To the faithful workers in other
newspaper offices throughout the
northwest, I also extend a fraternal
For the gentleman who now takes
charge, and whoso friendly aid has
been a source of constant comfort dur
ing our business partnership, I be
speak the same geuerons meed of ap
preciation and support that was so
freely accorded to me.
All my business interests are in As
toria and will remain here. The ten
dercst associations of my existence are
bound up with my life in Astoria
which is my permanenthome, and at the
close of this chapter it is with pleasure
above all price that I feel that during
all this trying period I have by no
word or deed of mine deservedly for
feited the esteem and good will of the
people of Astoria.
During all these years of chron
icling the history of the city I have
never obtruded my personality in The
AsToniAK, and now, for the first time,
I refer to my personal affairs purely
as a matter of news to all with whom
I have talked so long.
Iisss could not be said, more need
not be said, and as Hamlet says, "the
the rest is silence."
J. P. HaIiLORAX.

The plain and truthful words of my
dear friend and former partner need
It is with a full heart I assumo the
responsibility he has carried so long
As to my continued relations with
the people of Astoria, through The
Astoriav, I need only say you are
and for nine years have been my
friends and neighbors. During that
time I believe I have become suffi
ciently acquainted and identified with
the business interests of the city to
enable me to work intelligently for
My business and all other interests
are centered here among you, and it
will be my highest ambition to con
tinue Tiie Astoriax as a truthful.
earnest and able champion of Astoria,
so that it shall merit and retain in the
future, as in the past, the respect and
generous support of the people of this
city and section. P. "V. Parker.
TIIE SEIZED VESSEL.
VitoroRs Attempt Being Made to Settle
Port Towxse?o, Aug. 12. "From a
government officer who arrived on tho
steamer Qxicen from Alaska, the cor
respondent learned that a vigorous
attempt is being made by the author
ities to square the seizure of the seal
ing schooner Mattie U. Dyer. It will
bo remembered when the schooner
was seized captain Mockler, of the
schooner, made the claim that his ves
sel was guilty of no offense against
the government and that deputy col
lector Edmunds far exceeded his au
thority when ho seized tho vessel at
Ounai&ska. His story was verified by
the crew and the only ground Ed
munds had to set up in justification
for the act was that the vessel had
sealsldns aboard. The vessel was
sent from Ounalaska to Sitka and is
tliere now. Collector Pracht and dis
trict attorney Johnson have been in
vestigating the case, and they can find
no tenable grounds upon which to
bold the vessel.-
As the collector is responsible for
tho acts of his deputies, and as his
bofidsraen are responsible in heavy
boods for the collector's acts, Pracht
feels "hrmgolf placed in a very unenvi
able position. Should Captain Mock
ler sue for damages he might win his
case. But the trial could hardly be
reached in any reasonable time, and as
tfee captain is a poor man he cannot
aSbrd to adopt this course. Ho is at
present in Sitka and in a deplorable
Saancial condition. It is reported
that overtures have been made to the
oaptaiafor release of the vessel if he
all promiso not to sue for damages.
However, the vessel has been libeled
ad a hearing is set for August 18.

As Laid Out by H.
ROBB & PARSER, Gener
The following preliminary summary
of the debts of the United States out
standing Juno 1, 1880, and June 1,
1890, or the dates nearest thereto for
which reports are obtainable, is fur
nished by J. K. Upton, special agent of
the census bureau on state finances:
The reported bonded debt repre
sents in each case the amount of nego
tiable securities outstanding at the
time mentioned, and the floating debt,
that of all other obligations of the
states, including those assumed or in
curred for a specific purpose, oven
though no actual bonds or certificates
may have been issued therefor.
The assets embrace the cash and all
productive securities on hand of
which a valuation is reported, whether
they belong to the stato or to any of
its funds, although in some cases they
are not wholly applicable to tho pay
ment of debt, but aro pledged for the
use of schools or charities.
It will bo seen that tho principals of
the debts has changed within tho ten
years as follews:

In most of tho states reducing their
indebtedntss during tho decade tho
reduction has been accomplished by
applying to the extinguishment of
their obligations tho revenues not
needed for current expenses. In a
few states, however, tho apparent de
crease of the debt has arisen from tho
enforced refunding of tho old debt
into a new one at a discount varying
from 20 to 85 per cent
Taking from the amount of decrease
in all the states tho amount thus aris
ing from the discount in refunding
and there is left as paid by cash $29,
497,706.19, and tho geographical sec
tion which includes tho states named

18S0, as published in the reports of
thejtenth census is, to a small extent,
in excess of the amount of bonded debt
herein stated, arising from the classifi-
cation in the reports of certain non
negotiable school bonds as bonded
debt, they being so reported by tho
