A new tug was launched last week
at Seattle, for towing at Gray's har
bor. She is owned by Preston & Mc
Kinnon. Length, 80 feet; breadth,
18 feet; depth, 7 feet She is of very
light draft, but is fitted with iron
tanks which, when filled with water,

about two feet. She will be called the

The question is asked: "Who is
going to provide tickets on election
day? Neither the Eepublican nor
the Democratic committees will do
it." That is so, and yet, somehow, it
is very probable that any one who
wants to vote for or against prohibi
tion on the 8th of next month will
have no difficulty in finding a ticket
for or against the idea.
D. G. Eoss, over on Gray's river,
has a shepherd dog and a hound that
go out occasionally and have great
fun running deer into camp. Last
Saturday they started as usual, the
hound showing up at night, but the
dog was missing. For three days the
poor brute was gone, and a search for
him found him caught by his bushy
tail in a vine and unable to move.
The Loudon Oncers' Gazette of
October 1st, says: "Trade in salmon
is restricted. Orders for absolute re

holders confident in the position,
maintain great firmness. For for
ward delivery 28s for outside packs,
and 30a for Columbia river fish are
quoted, and for flat 33s to 35s; but
these prices meet no response from
buyers. We hear that a spot parcel
of Columbia river changed hands this
week at 30s."
Clatsop Connty's Military List.
County clerk Trenchard has a pleas
ant little duty to make out a list of
the names of all the men in the coun
ty subject to military duty. Yester
day morning he had got pretty well
through the "A's." Of forty-two
whose name begins with "A," there
were twenty-fiveAndersons. If a detail
should be made, and the commanding
officer aBk for "private Anderson," he
would have little difficulty in'getting
answer. The making of such a list is
something of a job, as the names must
be arranged in alphabetical order,
and the postofiice address of each one
must be given. The list embraces
those between the ages of 18 and 45,
and when completed will be sent to
adjutantgeneral Shofner. Clatsop
county's list, when completed, will
foot up about one thousand names.
