The only office that seeks the man is the sheriff's office. The tug Sea Foam has been Idle for a couple of days, having her piston rod trued up. Astoria could stand quite a building boom before she would run short of contractors. It Is said that there is a tombstone in the City Cemetery marking the grave of a man who died In 1814. D. J. Ingolls, of Melville, is In the city, and Is as cheerful as though "those good old times" were not with us again. Some of the candidates will be spread out so thin after the June election they will havo to be taken up with a blotting pad. , Minneapolis, Minn., runs three cook ing schools In connection with the high schools of that city, and tha result Is Very satisfactory. This being the lust week that Herman Wise will work In the store, customers will be given a special benefit In the way of low prices. Capt. Wm. Whltoomb, of the steamer Cascade, has been erecting a new resi dence at Ilwaco, which will soon be ready for occupancy. A $2J coin dropped on Commerce strjet yesterday sounded so strange to the merchants that they all rushed to t,he store fronts to see what it could bo. It Ih said that there Is not a cent of money made In running a steamboat between Astoria and Portland nt the present rates fur the amount cf freight carried. Election notices were posted yesterday, but an error was made In leaving out the office of assessor. Corrected notices will be put up at once, and no legal complications need be feared. .

The many friends of George McLean will be pained to learn that he was not benefited by the medical treatment he received in Portland. He is now falling very rapidly, and Is liable to pass away at any time. SAWMILL ACCIDENT. A Chinaman working In a sawmill near Ilwaco had his hand caught by a circular saw yesterday morning, and was brought over to this city for treat ment. Dr. Bates amputated three en tire fingers and the first Joint of an other on hla right hand. AT ST. MARY'S. There will be but one celebration at St. Mary's church today, and that will be high mass at 9 o'clock, without sermon. . . '. This will be the first mass celebrated by Rev. Dlelman since his first Illness, three weeks ago, and the members of his parish will rejoice to see him at the altar again. A QUIET PLACE. Nothing makes more noise than planing mill In a community, so the bustle and jaw-Jaw of the bits on the planers out at Trulllnger's mill was missed yesterday by the neighbors in that vicinity, for the mill was shut down, and not a soul stirring about the place. Evidently the boss and all hands had gone visiting. PASSED UNNOTICED. Eight or ten years ago last Thursday would not have came and gone with so little attention as it received this year in Astoria. Tho 17th of May Is the nn tlonal holiday of Norway, and tha Nor weglans at one time celebrated It on the Coast as our Americans do the Fourth of July, but this year It seemed to be forgotten. WON'T WORK. The naptha launch Vigilant don' seem to be a success, so fur as the Slntz gasoline engine which was placed upon her is concerned. It works well until the propeller Is attached, and then the engineer lories the combination. The owner expects an expert from the en glne factory here soon, who will show them how to pick up the thread where it was lost. A SURPRISE. Dr. Kates prepared an unexpected sur prise for his wife yesterday. He left on tho steamer Telephone Friday night and met Miss Clara Hutton ait Portland, who wan eomlng out from St. Joseph Mo., to visit her Bister, Mrs. Estes, whom she had not seen for six years, To say that Mrs. Estes wus not happy when both her husband and sister ar rived home last night would be drawing It mild. She was not expecting a visit from her sister, but had long hoped for one. RAILROAD RUMBLINGS. There was a meeting of the subsidy committee yesterday, and as Mr. Heeloy Is In town and Messrs. Stanton and Campbell are yet In Portland, It Is pre. sunied that the Stanton people have modified their proposition so as to con form as near as possible to the views of the committee, and they are at preg. ent going ove," them carefully. Nothing hos been heard from Messrs. Baxter and Dickinson, only that they did not make the expected connection with the contractor, Do Reamer, at Cheyenne. A QUICK SETTLEMENT. Fred. Nelson and John Jones were rid' ing on the street cars towards Upper- town Friday afternoon discussing poll tics until the Inside of the car got bo healed that tho varnish peeled from the Bides and they could hold themselves no longer. With one accord they quit the car, and before the motorman could get It started again they had settled it with their flats in the Btreet and were aboard again. It was so quickly done It could not he called exactly a breach of tho peace, ond as both tho parties seemed to be satisfied, the public ought to be. WHAT THEY COST. The costs assessed by the county court against the estate of John Hansen, no shown by the county recorder's books, amounts to $t,9:9.50, but Is Is doubtful If It will ever lie eolLvlcd out of the es tate. Tho cost' to the county of the triads and carrying out of the sentences of Hunsen and Relter footed up to no less than $3,000, ond yet these two cases are supposed to cost loss than similar ones have cost any county on the Coast. It Is estimated that the coitW In the Rose trials over In Pacific county, Was ington, cost the taxpayers no loss than :3,ooo. TO THE PUBLIC.

It has changed the prices of clothing that the people begin to purchase at home, and don't go to Portland for them as before. The merchants are now afraid that It a railroad should come to town It would bring more people here, and among them there Is liable to come men that will engage in the clothing, hats and dry goods business. Therefore It puts them to the necessity of getting another ordinance through so as to prohibit any railroad company from bringing any persons here that will sell clothing, dry goods, and hats, and they will ask the council to enact an ordinance to pro hibit cars coming here with goods such as they sell, and all railroad cars that may hereafter bring here new goods shall pay a license to the city of $400 j for each car load, and $400 for each pas- Isenger who Intends locating In Astorlu and engaging In the clothing or dry goods trade. And be It further enacted, that the city of Astoria be fenced In against all intruders, such that would dare come here and bring a nice stock of clothing or dry goods, and offer the same for sae here for less than the old mer chants who havo kept their old stocks on their shelves for years and have h;;d the trouble of dusting and r-rushlni; them so long, and they will pray to have the ordinance passed In i.nt.- night and become a law Immediately cflur its passage.
