the Salem boys as follows: A Salem boy
at a ball is tho deadest live thing on the

life, the boys aro regular sticks with few
exceptions." It is the scarcity of energy
that causes this stagnation of life. It is
hoped that they will outgrow this terri
ble malady, for if they do not thero will
not be enough life in their frames to ask
a girl to marry them when thev are old
enough to become benedicts. Wake up,
boys, and show moro life and energy.

Lumberman Drowned. James Collins
yesterday received the sad news of tho

drowned in tho Hoquiam river, "W. T., at

He was in the employ of tho Hoquiam
Mill Company, on Gray's harbor, and
while crossing the river in a boat the
nicht being dark and stormy he was up
set. His cries were heard by the men at
the mill, but before they could reach him
ho had sunk. The tide was running out
strong and carried the body out into tho
harbor. Even' effort was made to re
cover it, but, at last accounts, without
success. Mr. Collins was a native of bt,

Foreign Salmon Market. The de
mandfor salmon has slackened some
what during the past week, nevertheless
the inquiry from consumers is active.
Retailers, it would seem, are reducing
their stocks in anticipation of lower
prices when new season's fish arrives, but
tnose aoie to express an opinion uo not
think there is any probability of such a
movement taking place, masmucn as
nresent ..rices are held to be as remuner-
live as might be expected under all tho
circumstances. It is regarded with satis
faction in somo quarters that tho at
tempt to give an impulse to the market
which was recently made by alleged in
terested speculators, has palpably failed
ana tue caution given to reuwens is nuv
intr tbe effect of nreventinc anv unnat

Heayt Blow. All day Sunday the rain
fell in sheets and the wind blew in fitful
gusts from tho west. About ono o'clock
yesterday morning it piped up strong
from tho southwest and over the hill
came a blast that shook many a found
ation, burst open doors, shattered win
dows, tore off gates, prostrated fences
and wakened many from their peaceful
slumbers. Sundry stovepipes and pieces
of tin clanged and clattered as though a
small section of the day of judgment had
struck this part of the nation, but nm
great amount of damage was done. In
the stream the Corsica and Ladstock
dragged their anchors but sustained no
damage. At tho caps the wind blew
with, steady force, and whatever shipping
was in the vicinity stood well off to tho
northwest. It was the severest storm of
tbe season. All day yesterday tho rain
ease steadily down, and the lew hung

A Scrap of HKtarj.
In answering the inquiry of a friend,
John Minto furnishes the following scrap
of unwritten history:
But niv friend. I gather from the tone
of 3'our letter that your interest in the
old pioneers and tlu-ir action, extents
alovt and beyond the driving of the first j
sheep across the plains. 1 therefore take
pleasure in calling your Attention to the
fact of this movement on the pHrt of a
few Americans here in JtSN adventurous
sailors, mountain nu n and missionaries,
together with a ft-w free Canadian, trap
pers, like the Iato Joseph Gervais, to be
independent of the Hudson Bav company
in regard to cattle, was in fact tho begin
ning of the division between the friends
the British and American govern
ments, then in the immense territory of
Oregon. It occasioned tho holding of
the first public meeting at which
the scream of the Jold Ameri
can eagle can be distinguished.
The subsequent ""Wolf Meeting" which
is claimed by Mr. Gray as the initial
point of civil" government here was the
second occasion. The election of Mr.
Geo. Abeniethy, the first provisional gov
ernor by tbe missionaries, mountain
men and tho "Home Builders"' (as Hon.
W. Lair e?lls them) who had crossed tho
plains previous to 1HJ5, was the third.
lbe latter element by tins time outnum
bered tho others, but all joined in the
support of Abeniethy as tho represent
ative of tho American side or against
Mr. Russell, who was an American born
believe but being supported bv the
Hudson Bay Co. people was deemed their
candidate, "and opposed as such, I know,
as on that occasion I first exercised the
oting privilege. John Minto.

the item was a settler itself as far ns sot

statement made was that Mr. J. B. Gaban
came here in 1823, and was thus the old'

"Y.'hat are 'shanty' songs?"'
"Shanty' songs are working songs, and
re sung in the merchant service. The
word "shanty is probably from the
French chanter, to sing. These songs are
in sets, each of which has a different ca
dence adapted for the work to which it is
sung. There are songs for sheeting home-
topsails, for weighing anchor, and for all
that sort of thing. One, which i-5 exceed
ingly popular, goes:

I'm bound for the Rio Grande.
