"The situation la a serious one. and
demand Immediate adjustment. I am
not only speaking for our Individual In
terests, aa w hav warehouse room
enough at preaent, and can get along
without the railroad If other can: but.
If the verbal agreement made by coun
cilman J. W. Welch on behalf of the
right of way committee of the railroad
at tho time he solicited the deeds for
this property are to b arrled out, we
are entitled to. and In protection of our
business of necessity must, build our
wharves out to th harbor line In order to
have sufficient accommodation for our

stances a large money loss In addition
to the loss of property, will be entailed
upon us. Thla w hav ufrred In si
lence, but do not propose to be hampered
In the conduct of our legitimate buslne.
Mr. Hammond I expected here hourly,
the depot site will be closed up, and con

with Fisher Brothers, when asked for
his views upon the wharf question, snld
that he of course thorousrhly coincided
with Mr. D. K. Warren and Mr. Fisher.
"It seems to me that the prosperity of

Capetown. April a. Th situation grow
darker every day, In spite of the.very ef

Fully 9UU person have been killed by the
Mulala-lea since the uprising began, and
men of experience In South African war
fare claim to see In the tactic of the
native the guiding hand of th leader
of the Transvaal burgher. They Insist
that the Boers are arming for a struggle
with the llrltlsh for maatery In South
Africa, and that they are actually en
couraged and aaatsted by Germany.
The boera hav mustered about ISO
men and several gun, according to
report, at a convenient distance from
Mafeklng, and It la believed that they are
more than willing to make a common
cauae with the Matabele and strike a
blow at IlrtUsn supremacy. Indeed, ev

Executive Committee of the A. F. C
Take Action In the Matter.
The executive committee of tha Astoria
Football Club met last evening, and,
after the disposal of routine business,
took up the matter ot bicycle road race.
This subject haa been occupying the at
tention of bicyclists for some time past,
and the Idea met with much fnvor.
There are many bikes In Astoria, and tha
lack ot place for racing waa a Mg
deficiency. It waa suggested, and wisely,
that the level streets extending to Fast
Astoria would make excellent g'ound for
road races, and the matter was taken
up by the Astoria Football Club.
At tha meeting of the executive com
mittee last evening a delegation, consist
true of Meaars. Uunn, Qlbson and Hfvcr
Idge, wo appointed to arrange for a
series of race, which will occur shortly.
Mr. Ounu suggest an excellent Idea, and
one which will undoubtedly he put into
execution. He recommend that three
races be arranged, the person receiving
the greatest number of points to be de
clared th winner. F'rst place would be
ay ten points: second eight; and so on.
This scheme would give everyone a
chance for a prise. The race will be a
handicap one, and I open to all member
of th Astoria Football Club. Mr. Gunn
I of the opinion that It would be well to
handicap the racers after each race, so
as to give all a fair chance.
The committee will offer trophies for
the persona getting places, and that there
will be an abundance of contestants got
without aylng. The racers will probably
tart from the corner of Sixth and Du
ane. and run to Fortieth and liond and
return, the dltaanc being about five
miles. Duane street will be followed to
the Clatsop Mills, where riders will turn
and take Franklin avenue to the resi
dence of Mrs. Lelnenweber. Then they
will go down a block to Commercial and
down still another block to Bond. From
Bond they will rid probably to Fortieth
street, and perhaps further.
Th rood from McGregor' Mill up Is In
splendid condition, and will make a pret
ty race. Th finish will also be fine, a
Duane street has been reoently rebuilt.
There are several hills on the course.
which will necessitate training. Ladle
are barred. It' too bad, but such I tho
case. But What' the matter with ar
ranging a road race for ladle? There
are many expert In Astoria, and the
rare would be more interesting than the
gentlemen' run. Altogether the season
promlsts to be an enjoyable one for bl
cyclist, for the summer season will soon
be here and Bunday trips to the beauh
will be in vogue.
Next Tuesday evening the member of
the Astoria Football Club will meet and
elect captain for th several team
football, baseball, and tennis. A full at
tendance ta requested. At last night'
J meeting Messrs. Chjnrle Green and Har
1 ry won were eojrauaa to meoMrsaip.

Cel.. Shot sad Killed.
Montgomery, Ala., April a Five hun
dred Democrats here today, attending the
Democratic state convention, wer borrl
fled by a tragedy at the depot. The
platform wo crowded at 7:30 o'clock this
morning when Bob Kennedy, sheriff ot
Dallas county, Alabama, stepped uut with
a double-barrelled shot gun and cpened
Are upon two brothers. Percy and Mardta
Wood, both cltixena of Selma. When
th brother saw Kennedy they ran for
a place ot safety, but before this could
be reached, Kennedy shot Percy tore ugh
th back. Inflicting a fatal wound.
Manila Wood drew his pistol and fired
at Kennedy five times, without hitting
him. Kennedy re-loaded bis gun twice,
firing in all five shots at Mardta Wood,
shattering his right shoulder und break
ing his left arm.
Tha trouble grew out of the relations
said to exist between Mardta Wood and
the wife of Kennedy, all parties being
residents of Selma. Ala. Wood came
here to attend the meeting of the Dem
ocratic executive state committee, ot
which he la a member. Kennedy. It la
sold, learned that Wood was her and
came over from Selma to kill him.
Mardls Wood ha for forty years been
a prominent figure In politics and two
years ago was the nominee of the Demo
cratic party In the Fourth District for
congress, but withdrew before the elec
tion and Uoston Robhlns, recently un
seated, took his place. Kennedy Is In
Jail here.

from Columbia, In this county today, by
hi mining partner, J. T. Newcomer, over
a dispute that ensued upon Dorsey
charging Newcomer with cleaning up
and misappropriating amalgam without
the colonel's knowledge.
The defendant will claim justifiable
homoclde. He alleges that, during the
wrangle. Col. Dorsey attempted to draw
his gun, with the usual result of being
too slow. The matter haa created a moat
profound sensation owing to the age and
standing of both parties In thla commu
nity. Both gentlemen were between 60
and TO. Newcomer left the scene ot th
killing before his victim expired and cam
to Sonora and surrendered himself to
the sheriff.
