Said of the Strawberry, "God doubtless might have made
a better berry but it was doubtful if he ever had." So we
say of our Easter Cards and novelties, "somebody might
possibly have better, but it was very doubtful if any body
about here ever has. If they have, the stock has never put
in an appearance in Astoria and the people who have ex
amined ours know this to be a fact'' Added to this facjf
comes the further beauty of it, there is none sold for so
little money, talk or no talk. ". '

HI THE FIRST TIME
Governor Waite Finally Listens
TAKING THE ADVICE OF COUNSlL.
The Secretary of War Notified That
Waite is the Only Disturber
of the Peaee.
Denver, March 10. At 9 o'clock this
morning everything was quiet, await
ing a conference between Gen. McCook,
commanding the federal troops, and
Gov. Waite. Five companies of the Sev
enth United States Infantry are camped
at Union depot. The police force has
heen greatly Increased since yesterday,
and still holds the city hall. It is un
derstood the force numbers 330, and will
under no circumstances surrender. It is
expected Gov. Waite will order the
state troops from, other points, now un
der arms at the armories, to come here.
They number 750 enlisted men.
Gov. Waite has addressed a letter to
Gen. McCook, asking that the govern
ment troops be withdrawn from the city
because the latter refuse to assist In
carrying out the governor's purposes,
but will simply confine himself to main
taining the peace.
WAITE WANTS MILITARY AID.
Washington, March 10. Gen. McCook
telegraphed to army headquarters from
Denver this morning that Gov. Waite
had applied for the use of United States
THE WAR IS OVER.
Waite Decides to Leave the Question to
Denver, Col., March 16. The war is
over. At last It is announced by At
torney I. N. Stevens, who has been in
consultation with the governor a large
part of the afternoon, that his excel
lency has accepted the advice of his at
torneys and consented . to submit the
fire and police board question to the su
nreme court on its merits. The gov
ernor says he Is still considering the
matMr, but It Is generally believed Mr.
Stevens speaks by the book. So the na
tional guard, which was ordered to be
ready to take the field on short notice,
will not be called Into action. The state
troops at Durango, Lake City, Pueblo,
rv,ir.rniln Snrincs. Grand Junction and
other centres have been uniformed and
under arms all day, ready to take spe
cial trains to Denver, and .the state
troops in this city have been on call.
Many people regard the governors
mllltarv demonstration as a big bluff
to show his contempt for Judge Gra
ham's Injunction and to compel the
Judge, If possible, to arrest him.
Gen. McCook's ordering the unltea
sta ted trooDS to this city has been ap
proved at Washington, and he has or
dered them from the Union depot to
tho npttvsbure building on Champa
street, where they will remain till fur
ther orders. Prominent attorneys anu
other distinguished citizens have been
laboring much of the day with Gov.
Waite to submit the matter to the su
preme court, which has power to call
upon the counsel for both the old and
new police boards to settle their cases.
Interogatorles to the court are based on
the police forces being In, existence, the
right of the governor to remove from
power and to appoint others to fill the
vacancies, and his right to call upon
the militia to seat the appolritees In
Sheriff Rurchlnell sent the following
telegram this afternoon:
Denver, Col., March 10, 1894.
Daniel S. Lamont, Secretary of War,
Washington, D. C: I am quite able to
muintaln the peace here unless the mili
tia of the stats are used against me.
Nobody but the governor Is socking to
disturb the peace, and he is acting in
contempt of the district court of this
BLOODTHIRSTY MRS. WAITE.
Denver, March 10. The cause of Gov.
Walte's obduracy, It Is learned on ex
cellent, authority, is his wife. She at
tended last night's conference In an
angry mood, and declared, with clench
ed fist, that the fight should go on un
til the last national guardsman In the
state lay dead on the pavement. Many
populists do not uphold Gov. Waite.
Reports of Increased Sales From Many
New York, March 16. BraJstreefs
review of the state of trade tomorrow
will ray: The unusual prolongation of
the mild spring-like weather during the
early portion of March has greatly
stimulated the consumptive demand in
almost all staple linen. Corroboration of
this l found In the almost unanimous
reports of Increased sales from six of
the larger distributing points In New
England and the Middle states, where
the general trade has heretofore been
reported barely steady. Chicago reports
a oontlnuance of last week's very favor
able statement regarding trade this
week, having been the best thus far In
the season, with many buyers in the
city and some dry goods houses work
ing nights to keep up with the orders.

the sundry civil bill, taking up the
amendment relating to' the transfer of
the coast and geodetic survey to the
navy department. The amendment was
defeated 81 to 104.
Mr. Wilson, of Washington, made a
vigorous speech on the discrimination
against the -western coast In the matter
of river and harbor improvements. He
protested against this Injustice. His
people were weak and powerless now,
but he warned the house that the time
would come when they would be strong
Mr. Cogswell, republican, of Massa
chusetts, characterized Mr. Wilson's re
marks as unjust. He pointed out the
fact that from 1885 to 1893, of the $1,500,-
000 appropriated for public lands in 20
states, Washington had obtained $250,
000. The house at 6 oclock took a recess
until 8 o'clock.

The Organization Is a Grotesque
WITHOUT FUNDS OR RATIONS
The Leaders Looted the Treasury
The Vagrant Law to Be
Los Angeles, March 16. "Gen." Fry's
army of unemployed, organized to
march on Washington, is a grotesque
failure. The city council and board of
supervisors and officers of the associ
ated charities met this morning and de
cided to relieve all meritorious cases of
destitution, but to recognize no organi
zation of unemployed. Five hundred
dollars was subscribed for Immediate
use. Work will be supplied on the
streets, and the vagrant law will be en
forced. The authorities will disperse
any army or like organization. The
army, numbering about 300, on learning
the result of the meeting, abandoned
Its barracks and marched out of the
city, apparently . beginning its. great
march. They had no organization, and
no leadership. Their leaders are said
to have looted the treasury, and the
main body was without funds or ra
tions. A large majority was without
blankets. Before they reached Alham
bra, five miles distant, many had
dropped out and retreated to the rail
roads In hopes of catching the trains.
Deputy sheriffs and constables along
the line of march have been notified
and will vag all members of the dis
persed army as fast as opportunity

mation this afternoon that members of

deputies, who will' proceed to the locali
ty on a special train. Brig. Gen. John
son and the sheriff are In communica
tion with Gov. Markham, who will or
der out the national guard. Trouble of
a serious nature Is apprehended. It Is
possible that an encounter will occur
ENDED IN BLOODSHED.
Tacoma, March 16. William Cush
man and W. W. Russell, farmers, were
shot this morning at Lake Tapps, near
this city, by John Arcott and his son.
Cushman was killed and Russell badly
wounded. Both the Arcotts surrendered
to the sheriff this afternoon. The crime
grew out of a fight over a county road
at Lake Tapps, which has kept the en
tire settlement In that section at war
for many months. On Wednesday last
one of the Russell family vUlted the
office of County Commissioner Barthel
mew over the matter and was thrown
out of the commissioner's office. This
morning Russell, Cushman, the Arcotts
and other nelghborr renewed the quar
rel, which resulted In the murder.
OUT OF DIFFICULTIES.
Tacoma, March 16. The Union Sav
ings Bank and Trust Co. today bought
at par $275,000 worth of Pierce county
refunding bonds. This takes the county

preme court decided a few days ago
that owing to certain technicalities on
Issue of bonds was not valid, and left
the county without sufficient funds to
carry It through until next spring.
THE CONFERENCE INTERRUPTED.

inary meeting, furnished the head ol

ment to the effect that the receivers did
not recognize that any agreement with
