to attempt to cross the Columbia river
bar in the nisht We, suspend his li
cense as master of steam vessels for six
months from date.
We find that Pilot Thomas Doig acted
imprudently in attempting to bring the
Great Republic over the Columbia
river at night thereby endangering the
lives of so many persons and so much
valuable property. We suspend his
license as pilot on steam vessels for
twelve months from this date.
After a very careful investigation of
the condition of the steamship Great
Republic we find that she was tight,
staunch and in a seaworthy condition
when stranded near Sand Island.

Genial Capt. A. P. Ankeny was
the first person to inform us, at Rose
burg 3'esterday, that the good people
of Astoria had awakened themselves
and partaken of the railroad topic to
the extent of at least incorporating
the "Astoria and Wiimemucca rail
road company." Good ; the move
ment is just such a one as should have

now we know it. This action, on the
part of Astorians will prove to be one
of the most opportune events, in herj
history, if properly carried out. Ex
Senator Mitchell reached Rosehnrg
yesterday pretty well worn out from
the fatigue of an overland journey,
but he is looking remarkably well,
and has not lost an iota of the energet
ic characteristics of his life by having
served a term of six years in the
councils of the nation. lie was per
suaded to come overland by Postal
Agent Steel, on the assurance that the
roads were splendid. Mr. Steel was
slightly mistaken however, as the
roads are perfectly awful, the result
of the prolonged bad weather,,
for which Mr. Steel cannot ho
justly held responsible. The peo
ple all along the line, from south
ern Oregon to Portland, turned out
and gave Mr. Mitchell a very elegant
reception at all points. Jacksonville.
Ashland, Roseburg, Junction, Albany,
Salem, Aurora, Oregon city, Portland,
etc., acted wisely in this matter.
Astoria would have done likewise, had
the gentleman passed that way. At
Roseburg it was our pleasure to be
present. Mr. Mitchell was warmly
welcomed by Hon. L. F. Lane, re
cently a dignified and honored mem
ber of the house of cougress, and
there we heard from the lips of our
senator a brief but interesting address,
cheerful and hopeful. He did not
expect to be received in a public j
manner, and we may as well state
here that previous to his departure
from Washington in writing to Collec
tor Kelly on business he closed his let
ter with these werds: ""Now, friend

preciated from an incident wliich oc
curred at Junction. One of the citi-
zens of Junction, addressing his re
marks to Mr. Mitchell said: "Senator,

same) made by you to the people of J
Lane county upon a certain day (re-
ferring to the occasion)." "I remem-,

sir; we wish to again send you to the j

Mr. Kelly, Mr. Mitchell must now !

tract. Mr. Earhart informs us that
at least $20,000 will be saved by the
using of galvanized iron for the cor
nices, and add just as much to the
appearance and durability of the build
ing as the heavy wood or iron cornices
formerly in use for such purposes.
This galvanized work is the result of
experiences with iron and wood in the
great fires of Boston and Chicago.

observe the affairs of state generally
are in very competent hands. Mr.

Earhart in the secretarys office is a
very able and capable assistant to ours,
the best secretary in any of the states.

have done it sooner, but the advent of
spring having been delayed by winter's
frolicsome freaks there is time
enough to renovate somewhere near
summer. Mr. Fred Howard is still
at the desk.
We shall visit Orient Lodge this
evening with Bro. Young, formerly of
Astoria, now of the Salem Mills,

changes wliich will in ike it the largest,
as it is now one of the finest, in the
state. Before closing this letter we
must impart some joyful news to us,
if not readers- of The Astorian. We've
struck a Bonanzi! A fine large
wheat steamer, commanded by Capt.
Tackelbery; Purser Troup; and shall
sail for Portland at 5:30 a. m. to
morrow. This arrangement will com-'
pel us to breik two engagements to
meet friends about dinner time, at
their homes in Salem, but it. will place
us one day nearer our accustomed
dinner table, and that's just where we
want to be, as soon as jvissible.

According to statistics recently
collected by the governor of St. Peters
burg there are in Bussia 100,000 in
sane persons. The Bussian papers
have been complaining of the bad
condition and management of the in
sane as3Tlums. which in most cases are
in the nature of barracks, rather than
hospitals. The Bussian medical
organs have also taken the ground
that insanity should be legally recog
nized a sufficient cause for divorce,
since it is a transmissable disease.
