A large number of fishermen were; In

noticed among them. It was learned up
on Inquiry that Sheriff Hare and Fialt

be patroled between the tvours of ( p.

that ths laws In regard to Sunday Ash

has a number of launches engaged and
will be out on -the river with his dep.

The notice for children's Day exercises
In the M. E. Church in yesterday's paper
was a mistake. The principle parts In
the program were to have been taken by
young misses who are members of the
High School. The Baccalaureate sermon
must necessarily be this evening, and, the
exercises of commencement being so near,
their time is fully occup.ed. There will
be only some responsive readings, a ten
minute talk by Dr. Buehong, appropriate
to the day, and some music by tne church
choir. There has been no Instrumental
music provided for the day. This was
also a mistake. '

The A. F. C..Determlned to Miake Their
Entertainment a Success. '
As the time approaches for the musical
and literary entertainment to be given
under the auspices of the Football Club
on Wednesday evening next, Interest In
the affair increases and many .questions
are daily asked members of the board of
directors as to the numbers on the pro
gram. A reporter called on a member of

The board expect also to be able to
Induce others of Astoria's best Singers to
lend their aid to making' the entertain
ment a grand success from both an artis
tic and financial standpoint, bojh of
which .desirable reeuBts may even now
be co na.de red as absolutely certain. Mr.
Herbert L. Brown, writes from Portland
that he has succeeded in Inducing Miss
L. Beaupre, the charming exponent of
the Terpeiichoreian art who drilled the
members of the Hutoomoh and Seattle
Amateur Athletic Clubs for several of
their public performances before the foot,
lights, for the occasion, and that she will
give an exhibition of grace In dancing,
that has never been excelled. Her skirt,
dance, which is done in long skirts, with
stereoptlcon lights In varied colors, Is en
tirely lucking in anything that would
offend the most fastidious. It is the
poetry of motion and certain to create a
furore. The fact that Miss Beaupre will
perform under tine auspices of the club is,
however, sufficient recommendation for
her and guarantee of the character of the
performance. Of Alias Beaupre the Se.
aittle Post-Intellncer recently had the
following complimentary notice: "Tha

Orders Glvri by the Fire Department for
Repairs to Be Made.
. Orders ware Issued yesterday by the
fire and water committee for the re
pairs to Enguie'No. 3, which Wire found
to be necessary from the test given Fri
day afternoon. This Is quick action and
in the right direction. The energy of
Acting Chief. Stuart is highly commended
and much credit is due for the manner
In which he went about the matter. First
making a practical test of the engine In
the presence of members of the fire com
mittee and ascertaining Just where the
trouble in the machine was, and then
striking while the iron was hot and pro.
curing the necessary orders from 'the
board for tha repairs. This is a business
like method of handling city affairs which
leaves no room for criticism.
Let the good work go on. Engine No.
2 should also be put in proper shape for
duty . at once, to be used as a reserva
force and Mr. Stuart Intends to take the
mattoer in hand at onc. should his term
of oitlce extend further, as the approach
ing dry season calls for prompt action.
SEARCHING FOR THIEVES.
Sheriff Hare Spends the Day on the
Sheriff Hare yesterday was towed up
the river in a row boat by a launch and
visited the various sloughs, Islands, fish
ermen's cabins and ranches along the
rivor near Knappa, where recent thiev
ing has been going on.
A thorough search was had but no
discovery of the thieves was made nor
tha hiding place of their plunder found.
As far as known none of the stolen arti
cles have been offered for sale. It la
an easy matter for .thieves of this class
to operate at night and conceal all traces
of their work.
Sheriff Hare states that he has In the
past had deputies on the river who were
unknown to others, and that there were
parts of his business that It was unneces
sary to adverttee. To thoroughly pa.
trol the lower part of the Columbia river
would require a very large force of men
but of course It could be done tf the
necessary'funds were provided.
Seaside win celebrate the coming 4th
of July with, a good, old-fashioned pic
nic, oration, songs, games, foot races,
house races, etc. We expect a number
of people from Astoria and elsewhere.

CLOSE OF A PURE LIFE
J P. Dickinson Has Gone to
His Long1 Rest.
HOSTS OF FRIENDS TO MOURN
A Consistent Christian During:
Long: Life Death Found Him
Ready for the Call.
Death ended a long and useful life yes
ttrday morning at 4 o'clock. J. P. Dick
inson, well beloved by all who knew him,
has passed Into that long sleep which Is
the common lot of man. In but a few
hours, stricken down by apparently triv
ial causes, It Is difficult to realize that
one so recently seen in the midst of his
fellows Is no more. His end was a quiet
passing away, unconscious from first to
last he knew no pain. The family and
physicians were with him to . the last,
and all that science knew was used in
an effort to prolong life, but to no avail.
Mr. Dickinson was well known and re
spected by a large circle of friends and
acquaintances, and his life record re
mains a clean and unspotted history.
Always kind-hearted and charitable,
never ostentatious, the good he d-d on all
sides during a busy iife will never be
known. For Fifty years a member of
the Chrictlan church, he carried his re
ligion with him to hiB office or field of
labor and its principles dominated his
dally life. His word once given It was
scrupulously kept and no amount of out.
side Influence could make him deviate
from a course he believed to be right
All have lost a good neighbor and many
have lost a kind friend and benefactor.
The citizens of Astoria generally Join
their own sorrow with the bereaved
family in heartfelt mourning for the de
parted friend and brother. .
John Pendleton Dickinson was a native
of Virginia and born in Caroline county
of that State May 2d, 1819, and hence at
the time of his death was 76 years of
age. His parents, SamtKl C. and Eve

a physician, and passed his life in Caro

D.ckinson secured his academic educa

scientific and legal studies In the WJliam
and Mary college, from which he was
subsequently graduated, shortly after,
ward locating In Bowling Green and
commencing the practice of law. In 1848
he removed to King William Courthouse,
Va., and continued in the practice of
law until 1850, when Secretary Stewart
appointed him clerk in the pension office
at Washington, D. C. Removing to that
city he performed thfe duties of that of
flee for four years, afterward being en
gaged in prosecuting ciaims before the
several departments. In 18tl he returned
to Virginia, and locating In Goochland
county, followed agricultural pursuits,
giving his services during the war to the
In 1871 he came to Oregon, remaining
in Portland in the insurance business
until 1880, when he came to Astoria where,
he has since res.ded, being occupied at
first as chief bookkeeper for M. J. Kin
ney, and from 1836 until 1804 as County
Clerk Trenchard's chief deputy.
HT'has occupied many positions of In.
fluence and trust as. a. citizen while hero,
and at the time of his death was a school
director for the dlsitrict. In 1816 he was
marr.ed to Sally T. Woolfofik, who was
his- life's companion, and who died In
this city six years agv.

members of the ChrlsUan Church before
their marriage and lived consistently in

A FIFTY-CENT DOLLAR.
Silver is the poor man's money, re
peats Senator Teller. So It is, but when
poor man toUs for one silver dollar
he demands and has a right to receive,
a dollar that w(U buy as many things
he eats and wears as any other dollar.
The moment a free silver colnnage act
shall become effective every silver dol
lar will lose half Its purchasing power
and the poor man who now receives $12
a week for his labor will under such a
law receive but $6 worth of groceries,
clothing, etc. Meantime the silver mine
owners of Colorado will gather In enor
mous profits by reason of an advanced
price of silver bullion which a free coin
age low would bring to them.
PRICE OF FOOD IN OLD TIMES.
Amid the 'never ending comments on
the price of provisions, it ia difficult for
us to realise the fact that a time 'existed
when wheat, Wi England, as food suffi
cient for one hundred persons was worth
only one shilling, and the average price
of sheep only four pence. In the reign of
Henry I, the price of wine was raised
from three to sixpence quart for red
and erght pence for white. In order that
the selers might be enabled to live by It,
when wheat was at six shillings a quarter
(eight bushels) the farrhng loaf was
to be equal in weight to twenty-four
ounces, if made of the whole grain, and to
