bay also arrived on the same day.
The social party given at Liberty

Ex-Governor Downey and vtife,
of California, were passengers by the
incoming steamer State of California
jeslerday. Governor Downey is firm
and earnest in his belief that Oregon
is fast becoming one of the greatest
commercial states of the union. He
will visit the Cascades and upper Co
lumbia before his return to California.
A notice was issued yesterday by
the board of foremen stating that, on
account of the lack of interest shown
by the firemen, there would be no de
partment ball last evening; hence the
result. Astoria has a department
which for efticieucy cannot be excelled
n this coast, and we regret that such
difnssion ensued. However, we think
the boys have always done their duty,
as lias been attested by the prompt
and efficient manner in which they
have rendered services to the city,
and at the risk of their own lives and
property have saved the city from
disastrous conflagrations. There is
but a 6mall portion of the department
who have anything to lose by Sre, and
we do not think they should be per
sonalty taxed for any repairs to appa
ratus or other property.
Mr. Prank Keelar, for whom E.
C. Holdcn has been selling goods
lately, was yesterday uied before Po
lice Judge Rnney on a complaint for
violating a city ordinance in eelliug
goods at auction without a license.
Defendant claimed a juiy trial, and
the defence set up was that the ' n.ids
were sold at auction by E. C. Holden,
a duly licensed auctioneer and at
his auction rooms, for which consider
ation he received jis per arrangement
five per cent, on the gross sales, and
that after Mr. H. had opened the sale
and been selling for about two hours he
requested the defendant to sell for him.
f The prosecution contended that the
ordinance prohibited any such author
it' from a licensed auctioneer to an
other, and hence this suit. The jury
did not so construct the ordinance in
this case, and after a short absence
found a verdict for the defendant.
Mr. J. W. Robb conducted the case
for the city, and Mr. F. D. Wmton
for the defendant. Immediately after
the rendering of the verdict Mr.
Keelar paid twenty dollars into the
city treasury and took out a years
license as auctioneer in this city.
The amateur performance given by
the ladies And gentlemen forming the
Astoria Dramatic association for the
benefit Grace church parish school,
was mst eminently successful. By
the time the curtain rose noarij every
seat in the dress circle as well as in the
spacious gallery was tilled. The first
piece presented was the nautical drama
of Down by the Sua. If space per
mitted we would like u particularize
each individual part sustaiuded in this
interesting drama, but whore all
did so well it is periiapa unnecessary.
We mu.t, however, make mention of
the natural and thoroughly artistic
ability displayed by tlie young ladies.
Miss L. L. Allen, as the rogufeh little
coquette, Kitty Gale, and Mif C. L.
Uewett, as the dignified and accom
plished city belle, Kate Raymond,
were simply perfect in their clever
characterizatiens: while Miss Nellie
Pluiiitner, as Mother Gale, displayed
a conception of the part so natural
as to bring down the house in fre
quont applause. The laughable farce
of Thirty Minutes for Refresh
ments closed the pleasant evening's
entertainment, in which Miss Laura
Worsley cleverly personated the char
acter of Holly, and Mr. "A. B. Adair
sustained the leading part of John
Downby with much ability. We
migh justly offer a meed of praise to
Messrs. Thomas, Parker, Ferguson
and Allen, and especially to Mr. A.
P. Anderson for his really clever per
sonation of the dandy English Captain,
did space permit. The first perform
ance of the Astoria Dramatic asstcia
tion can be chronicled as successful,
artistically and financially.
The O. R. & N. Co's New Colliers.
A correspondent of the Nautical
Gazette w rites from Chester, Pennsyl
vania, under date of January 2Cth:
To-morrow morning at 10 'clock the
new steamer Willamette, which was
built for C. H. Mftllory & Co., but
which wa, when nearly completed,
purchased by the Oregon Railway and
Navigation company, and altered into
a collier, will be launched from the
shipyard of John Roach A: Sou. r?he
is known as "No. HKS," and is of the
following dimensiens: Length be
tween perpendiculars, olti.2 feot:" iver
all, :..!) feet; beam, IJO.l feet; depth
of hold, '24 feet: three decks; depth of
floors, 24 inches: frames, 4ix3 inches.
She is schooner rigged, with a stand
ing square sail yard. She has a com
pound engine 38x70x54 inches, six
boilers 1 1 feet in diameter. Her deck
houses are all of iron and contain ac
commodations for the officers and crew
and a limited number of passengers.
She is a collier and has a capacity of
from 2,200 to 2,500 tons of freight
coal, and is the first one built for the
Pacific coast. Mr. Roach is also
building for the Oregon Railway and
Navigation company two more steam
colliers--N3. 201 and 202-both of
the following dimensiens: Length
between perpendiculars, 010 feet;
over all, 332 feet; beam, 40.C feet:
depth, 24 feot; compound engine,
40x74x54 iuches; each to have six
boilers 11 feet in diameter.
The British bark Badura is due at
this port. She arrived off San Fran
cisco on Wednesday last and was
ordered to Portland.
The board of supervising inspec
tors of steam vessels, at a recent
meeting in Washington, had under
consideration the practicability of issu
ing day-light licenses to pilots who
inay be color-blind. These licenses
would permit the pilot to exercise his
duties during the daytime, when his
color-blindness would interfere little
if at all with his work. The scheme
is of doubtful value. It is likely to
lead to evils, and greater safety would
be attained by not grantiug such
licenses. The rule had better be made
once and for all, that no one who is
color-blind shall be granted a pilot's
The loss incurred by this state
during this winter's storms and lloods
is so enormous that to give the prob
able aggregate would seem to those
who have not attempted a careful esti
mate somewhat exaggerated. The
destruction of farm lands, houses,
fences, furniture, live stock, growing
crops, etc., throughout the Wiliamot
valley, the upper Columbia, and in
fact throughout the entire state would
foot up a loss that would be surpris
ing. The benefits from abundant
winter's rains are novor all profit, and
in this season tlere are large deduc
tions to be made before we count the

A New Steamship Line.
A new company is now beiii
organized for the purpose of fonn
Itiof mi opposition Hue of steam
ships to ply between. San
Francisco and ports south. This
trade has been carried on for main'
years by the Pacific Coast Steam
ship company, who. owning much
of the wharf property at the land
insrs alens: the line, have been able
to ward off competition thus far
with success At the head of this
new company is .Mr. D. J. Mehcrin,
a 'merchant of San Francisco, hav
ing extensive business relations in
the southern part of California, and
who has interested the leading
farmers and business men of that
section in the new enterprise.
Many of theae gentlemen are own
ers of, or have an interest in wharf
property at the ports where the
new steamers will touch so that
what has been the great obstacle
to forming au opposition line is
done away with in the present in
stance. The company will incor
porate as speedily as possible, and
with ample capital pledged, at no
distant date two new steamers with
all modern improvements for hand

not equalled b3' any study lamp in use.
It gives a steady, brilliant light; is
free from unpleasant odor;does not drip
either when burning or not burning;
easily lighted :tnd trimmed, and is
without exception, the most conveni
ent lamp to fill ever made. Directions
accompanying each lamp. Call upon
Mr. Case and buy one. He sells them
at remarkable low rate?.

me one hundred dollars. Yours truly,
