POINTS ABOUT THE NYES
WITH CASUAL REMARKS REGARDING
THE ASTOR FAMILY AND ASTORIA. "

(Copyright, 1800,'t.y E. W. Kye.
Astoria sits enthroned at the mouth of
the mighty Columbia. She in a good
town and reminds me some of Heidel
berg. We played there against the Sal
vation Army and Smith's Bile Beans.
The Salvation Army on the coast this
spring is doing rather a rocky business.
They are mostly carrying on a guerrilla
warfare in their business. They seem to
be on neutral ground, giving most of
their attention to supplies. Instead of
doing a general, devil defying street act
and trying to scare old Satan by means
of a tambourine and two homely women,
why don't they take in washing occasion
ally, including their own?
PLAYING AGAINST SALVATIONISTS.
When they know the great adversary
of souls as well as I do they will not try
to scare him with cross eyed women or
hive him and his hosts by beating the
tambourine, the sackbnt and the land
lord. Humanity, charity, soft soap and
unselfishness will do more toward triv.
ing Satan "that tired feeling" than all
the loud and onion flavored hosannas of
misguided men and bleating women,
who seek to harass tho hosts of hell with
a bass drum while their own children
with empty stomachs and rmlnundried
noses, weep at home.
But 1 was speaking of Astoria. I
bought U perpendicular lot there, with
pockets in it and brackets for holding
farm implements. Astoria was settled
in 1811 by Mr. Astor, whose family are
said to Ikj people of means. His descend
ants live in New York and are among
onr best people. The Astors and tho
Nyes are quite thick. They often bur
row uisucs or us wuen tuey nave com
pany come in suddenly on them. While
our ancestors were catching whales, the
Astors were catching "mnshrats." The
elder Astor was prospered, however.
more than the elder Nyes, for when je
troleum liegnn to squirt through the
gronnd onr folks had to hire out to Capt.
Kidil, while tlio Astors did well iu the
fur, pelt and green hide business.
Astoria is really a good city and shows
much thrift and enterprise. The Astor
family would do a very commendable
act by establishing a library or some jier
maneut institution there worthy of them
selves and the thriving town. There are
9,000 people in Astoria. The canned sal
mon is caught all along here, and the low
sob of the steamer echoes back from the
rich green velvety moss which uphol
sters tho high 6teep banks, while ever
and anon the wail of the sawmill calls
forth the sympathetic tears of the highly
saturated sky, and the beautiful hills in
their fir trimmed garments give back an
While I was there the president is
sued his annual message, warning the
seal poachers to go right away from there.
By law he has to do this every year or
lose his iy. I wish I could get a chance
to write a message for the president one
year, or, still letter, prepare the seech
of the queen for parliament. Just one
would do mo. I presume it would also
do everybody else. But it would possess
ita merits. I would write a speech for
the queen which, if she could memorize
it and get some good elocutionist to tix
some suitable gestures for if, would at
tract and draw forth comment anyhow.
Instead of giving tho long whiskered
and rather trite facts about bemg at
peace with the various foreign dynasties
that I had married into, I would give a
whole lot of bright family gossip such
as must come to the ear of an old lady
in such a position of trust and confi
dence as she occupies, and I would wurk
in little stciety notes and a department
called "The Man About Town." The
annual message of the president, too, is
open to criticism. Local hits nbnnt
Washington would make the document
far more juicy and generally read. In
stead of going on with six or seven col
- 1 1 1
urn us oi nonpareil mivice ami sugges
tions to congress as to what to do during
the coming session, I would boil it down
to five lines by saying: "Gentlemen, you
may go home and do your electioneering
if you please, instead of coming to Wash
ington to do it. Leave your address
with me and I will see that your salaries
are sent to you."

to the cannery, so it is a question with
them whether they can can or not. Yet
I suppose that after a certain cinnnir, a
Man might do well in a salmon cannery.
All styles of business, however, on the
river and Sound seem to be doing well.
If we do not mention the canneries, there
are the pineries, tanneries, fisheries, eat

do not know how the real estate men in
Astoria are, but certainly their lots,
many of them at least, lead an upright
I just heard of a young man in Port
land who came up with ns on the steam
er California along with other things.
He bragged a good deal In social circles
after ho gothome about how good a
sailor he was, and made quite a hero of
himself. Ho made fun of Ids fellow pas
sengers a great deal, and proceeded to be
the life of the party. After awhile a
young lady in the group legan to look
oyer some photographs and stereoscopic
views. Gradually she artlessly got the
attention of the rest, and then she pro
duced one which showed the young man
on board ship, exchanging his views
with -Mm iu lihi Tlifl . . ...... 1 m
ttseir with no uncertain sound.
He had forirotten ulwint ther Imino- a.
Kodak on hoard.
I sometimes think that science will
eventually make prevarication utterly
impossible, but while there is still an op
portunity I beg leave to submit the
above, which was told to me by a man
in whom I had formerly the utmost con
fidence. A curiona feature of tho Bhore along
the banks of the Columbia is the wood
flume. It is a long trough cut V shape
and supported by high poles, making a
long achute. aometimes extending for
miles up the' inaccessible hills and top
ping the almost inexhaustible pine woods
which cover the bluffs. Eight or ten
inches of water will do the work of a
hundred teams in scooting the fire wood
down these hills, and in fact in meet
places wagons could not be used at alL
It is a beautiful eight to the tenderfoot.
Cords and cords of two and four foot
wood come down these flumes to the
steamloat landing, wet and surprised,
but otherwise in good order.
In Portland I met an actor who had
just returned from Alaska. He says
that Alaska as yet is not a good show
place. He saw the country, however. I
asked him how the scenery was and other
works of creation. He Baid they were
"very clever." I had never hoard the
works of God indorsed so heartily by an
actor before, and so I speak of it here. I
do it in order to prove that many of the
unkind criticisms we hear relative to the
creation are really unjust, and arise
from a feeling of envy and jealousy
worthy only of smaller minds. A truly
great man will not try to belittle others.
No matter whether we are trying to con
struct solar systems or elevate the Amer
ican stage, nothing can be gained by the
exhibition of a small jealousy.
Do not order broiled oysters in Port
land, Oregon. Other victuals are reasona
ble in price and well prepared, but there is
no economy in buying broiled oysters.
I paid sixty cents for six broiled oysters,
and each one was smaller than a collar
button. On the coast the clam is the
Ward McAllister of nautical circles. He
grows to an enormous size, and is arro
gant to a degree. I saw in San Fran
cisco a clam shell which had been used
for years as a horse block that is, I saw
a manwho said he saw it. His name
was Samuel Post Davis, and a letter ad
dressed to him at Carson, Nevada, will
call forth a pleased and happy response.
At Tacoma I saw several of the Si wash
tribe of Indians. I paused to scrutinize
them more caref nlly. Especially a bright
young Alfarita sqnaw with white teet'i
and black eyes. They had l)een blacked
by her husband, I presume. But she
was quite pretty, and therefore a great
curiosity among the Siwashes, who are a
low, trifling set.
I looked at her earuestlv until she
came timidly toward me with a large,
wet mackerel in one hand and a blood
curdling oath in the other. Then I said
to Mr. Lacy: "We will now go and look
at those lots nf yours, if you are not too
busy." Keloid perhaps that would be
the better plan, so we trudged away.
The Chinooks are a more eaceable
people, fond of out door sports and Hoi
land gin. Their lives are spent mostly
in their canoes, which gives them won
derfnl depth of chest and a paucity of
lgs which is quite remarkable. One of
them looks very robust as he rows, as he
rows, but when on land lie goes, with his
ten converging toes, it would make von
sure to grin at the way his toes turn iu
( n the shore.
And his string halt style of walk, and
his Waterhnry talk make yon smile. For
his knees are out of plumb, even when
he's out of rum. an 1 his language knocks

that there was already scandal enough in

I saw her briefly ono day not long
ffr ,Sh wore a slightly soiled, white
woolen toboggan cap and an air of chas
tened melancholy. Also a red and white
ingrain rug with fringe on it. Her teeth
have fallen by the way side, but she is
still vigorous, and as a charmer has few
equals on the Sound. The Chinooks are
not a warlike people, but they still retain
their true nobility of Indian character
which In -stows ujMjn the women the in
alienable right to Itear the children and
Jo the light housework, such as killing
hogs, digging wells, cutting cordwowl
and breaking steers.
Some of theso Indians are quite inge
nious. Yesterday I saw one whose
Michael Angclo trousers were retained
in place by means of a bright, new elas
tic truss. It was all ho could do to keep
from betraying his pride and leing of
fensively haughty, but he did. His
daughter Multnomah was selling soft
shell crabs on a f idling market; also
shrimjw and other curios. It is custom
ary for bright young tourists to converse
with these red brothers and sisters.
Most always, however, tlu-y are led to

a conversationalist, but for powerful
word painting, strength of diction and
general scope of fishmonger syntax he
easily gets the best of the ajguuiant. I
rarely argue with an Indian. Even

Sioux I was the same way. I believe in

The Siwash is also a plain spoken per
son, and knowing that he can never be
elected president anyway, he is not afraid
to express himself. It must be a pleasant
life to lead. You just get up in the

your bed quilt provided you haven't
got it on already and then yon go cheer

The AMwnred Snrress of the Hennepin
Aronnes) llival Projectsi---''t. Tay
Co). Isaac Tajlur, formerly stale canal
commissioner, has written another letter
to the Teoria Journal on the probable
success of the Hennepin canal at the
present session of Congress. C1. Tay
I am informed that il is alio at settled
in Washington that Oen. Henderson's
appropriation of $5011.000 for the Hen
nepin canal and 1200.000 to continue
work on the lock and dam at Columbia
na on the lower Illinois, will lie sup
ported generally by Illinois ctinnressmtr.
and I am also told that it is thou ght best,
to support his measure to secure the sup
port of the general and friendf- of the
Hennepin canal when the greal water
way project comes before ron;re8. In
answer to this proposition I d.-sire to
say that both appropriations if passed
without provision for the great water
way art antagonistic to it. When the
waterway improvement is made all of
the locks and dams from Henry to the
Mississippi will lie; taken out. Ittertaia-
ly would be sound policy so to do, and if
Ihe waterway is to be passvd in t tie near
future why take S2tKI,t)tm out of ti e pub
lic treasury to be thrown away on this
improvement. The friends of tl e Hen
nepin canul are willing aud anxious to put
money on the lower Illinois improvement.
The friends of the river improvement
should not ask one dollar for the lower
Illinois. The Hennepin canal pilicy is
noxrand alwas tas been to reach Chi
caco vi the llennt t in and Iili loia &
Michigan canals. It is not a policy in
harmony with the preat waterway meas
ure. I 'artful estimates have been made aud
it is found that goods can lie shipped
from Hock Island down the Mississippi
and up the Illinois to Hennepin, after the
river is improved, at about the sane cost
that would be incurred in lockint; over
the divide between the same points via
the Hennepin canal.
If the friends of the meritorious im
provement connecting the lakes with the
Mississippi, by a great waterway via the
Desplaines and Illinois rivers, desire sub
stantia! assistance from the friends of the
Hennepin, they should demand it before
the Hennepin appropriation is rassed.
Let the friends of river improvement say
to General Henderson, we do not desire
your Sr'-.'OO.OOO foavthe lower IllinoU, but
we will submit this proposition: V'e will
give you f 350,000 for your entt rprise
with but small merit, to help you get
your project on "the government b oks,"
and we will be satisfied with $.150,0 K) ap
propriation in the same bill, for our great
improvement of vast benefit to th.; peo
ple in tlie west, and will go on the
"books" at the same time. If the friends
of Hennepin will not submit to this fair
proposition, in my judgment, the true
policy of Illinois river friends to y ursuc
is, to antagonize the bill. If this policy is
not pursued, it will be a long time liefore
we have the desired improvement be . ween
the lakes and the Mississippi. Respect
fully, Isaac Tayi or.
Col. Taj lor is apparently som ;what
envious of the favorable disprsition
that the present congress is dif posed
to show toward the Hennepin, but
he need give himself no anxiety s
to the treatment other water pro
jects may receive at the hands of the
great canal's friends. They realizo the
advantage and the necessity of water way
improvements and will always be found
aiding thein whenever they promise ben
eficial results to commerce, but Hennepin
champions are not of that manner o' men
who wilfoverlook any enmity tht is
shown them as the outgrowth of spite in
the struggles of the past or envy in the
present hour of triumph.
