The law provides for everything else but that. Cohl storage men say they are going to double their salmon shipment this season, and that as high as 7 cents per pound will bo paid for fish.

Conyers was up from Clatskanie Tuesday on professional business. Mr. Conyers has been ap pointed by the state land board as their attorney for this county. All applica tions for loans on land and any other business to be transacted for or with the state board will hereafter be attended to by Mr. Conyers. Someone with fair knowledge of the ways of the world has embodied a whole volume of good advice iu the following few words: "Drink less, breathe more; eat less, chew more, ride less, walk more; clotne less, bathe more; worry less, work more ; waste lees, give more ; write less, read more; preach less, prac tice more. The time in the justice court of this precinct was occupied last Saturday in a re-hearing of the ejection suit of Merrill vs. Knyart. The case was tried in the same court on Monday before, but the jury disagreed. At the latter trial the lurv brought in a verdict in favor of the defendant, and now the plaintiff will appeal to uie circuit court. The qualified voters of the Houlton school district held a school meeting last Saturday and voted a 10 mill tux for the purpose of improving the school building and maintaining the school for tiie next year.

Simmons, who was sent from here two or three months ago, to the hospital for the insane at Salem, for treatment, has returned to St. Helens, and is now occupying apartments in the county jail ; not. however, as a criminal, but because he is awaiting the disposi tion of his case by the authorities. Ue should lie sent to Borne institution where treatment could be had, and required to remain there. It is reported that an effort has been made to compromise the rate war be tween the railroad and the 0. B. & N. Company. The hitter company made a proposition to the railroad people to put the fare at $2.50 singlo trip and $4.00 round trip between Astoria and Port land and the O, K. & Ij. Company to charge $1.50 singlo trip and $2.50 for the round trip. The railroad company re fused to accept the compromise and the indications are that the rata war will lust all summer. Some time since there were thirty-two mineral claims lited on before the county clerk. The lands are in the vicinity of Bunker hill, and since the chances for a railroad aoins out through that section are very good, someone with an eye to business has exhibited the fore thought of taking time by the forelock. There never has been any question of ine extent anu wealth ol the mineral deposits in that vicinity, which, taken in connection with the timber resources of that part of the country, offers good inducements to capital to provide means for transporting both the hidden and unhidden wealth to the markets of the world. ,-.."..

Frank Smith, Al Thomas, and others were over from the Nehalem valley the first of the week. We noticed Adam Barr. 8r.. on the streets one day last week. He has been rather an invalid recently and we were glad to see him around again. Mr. Geortro Bniue is here in the inter est of the Modern Woodmen and seems to be getting quite a number of new neighbors into the camp here. John Palm's machinery for mill re pairs arrived this week and will allow operations to be resumed at the mill of the Clatskanie Lumber Company. Rev.

Alex and Duncan Chisholm came over from Oak Point recently to see their brother. Will, who is Bicx nt the Cluts kanie hotel. They returned this week alter seeing that Will was getting better. Notices are uoated calling a meeting of the voters of our school district, No. o, to discuss the question ol voting a tax for school purposes. Some eloquence will, no doubt, be poured forth on that occasion. Jack Stacy, of Rainier, haa been stoo ping with the family of John Quigley and wife the past week, taking care of Edgar during his illness. Jack has proved himself an excellent nurse and taxes pleasure in seeing bis charge re covering. The late rains have raised the water in the Clatskanie enough to lot another lot of logs Come down. This winter has been a fortunate one for our loggers in that respect. A number of logs passed by tow n on Tuesday to be caught and rafted about the mouth of the Clats kanie. Isaac Bumgardner took passage on the steamer Monday evening for himself and family, intending to spend Borne time on the Washington side of the river. He thinks he has a better log ging chance there for the coming season, but says he does not expect to sever his relations with our community only temporarily. JtKUBEN ITEMS.

After many weeks of anxious waiting, a few days since Mrs. Nellio Waud re ceived a letter from Fred Copies, a cousin of the late Captain Waud, who was with him at the time of his death, giving particulars concerning the sad affair, lie said that while the captain seemed perfectly well up to 2 o'clock on the afternoon of the llith of November, at that hour he was taken with a terrific headache and extreme nausea, vomiting terribly, and finally became unconscious, dying at 4:46. At that time he was at his claims near Dawson. The writer said he had no idea that the captain re alized he was going to die, so suddenly did the illness come upon him. The remain were buried there temporarily, and as soon as it is deemed advisable and the weather moderates, the body will be brought to this city .--The Dalles Chronicle, DO TOU KNOW? That Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln Decker left on Saturday of last week for Cor nelias, Washington county, where they will reside in future. That the steamer Mascot was raised from tiie bottom ol Lewis river on Thurs day of last week, and towed to Portland between two barges. She wiil be re paired and again placed in commission as soon as it is possible to complete the work. That Interest along the skirmish line among the .politicians is increasing, and unfortunate as is the case, the bud will soon burst into a full-blown campaign. There are dozens of good men who are willing to be sacrificed upon the polit ical altar. That the sheriff sold a piece of mort gaged land under foreclosure proceed ings last Saturday. The parties to the suit were James H. Dcardorff. plaintiff, vs. Sarah Button et al, and the piece of land was the southeast 14 ol section 28, township 7 north, range 2 west. Clee ton and Anderson were the attorney for the plaintiff. That the county court did not decide upon the tax levy lor the iam assess ment at its last sitting, but adjourned until January 25th. The state officials i i . . .i if -1 1 : i nau noi, at iue nine ol .ujouruiueiii, made the state levy, and in order to act intelligently in the premises an adjourn ment was taken until such time aa the state levy bad been made.- That the reason why 1000 will not be a leap year, although it is divjsable by system, on which our calendar is based. the closing year of a century is never a leap year unless it is exoctly.divisible by 400. The next leap year will be 1904, the last having been lttirtS. Ever since 1600 the leap years at the end of a cen tury have been separated by a gap of eight years, but the year 2000 will in terrupt the series. . That there are some people who al ways prefer to cross a stream before they get to it; in other words, they boi row trouble, and make their associates and themselves miserable by croaking out their gloomy forebodings of impend ing evil. Just now there is such a class in Columbia county. They can see ail sorts of dire calamity for the future, but upon what grounds they base their reasoning is an obscure quantity. Pre vent evil if possible is a magnificent way of conducting business ; but borrow ing trouble is as useless as the former suggestion ia commendable. Just give yourselves less concern about matter which are being ably taken care of. That the following item appeared in last Saturday's Oregonian, the same having some reference to one of our local infant industries in age. only, however: "St. Helens is now the cen ter of quite a wood-chopping industry, according to Harry Chne, a resident, who was in Portland recently. William Slaughter has between ninety and 100 men in the woods, and there is work for all who offer themselves. Choppers cannot be obtained in the summer time, as men prefer to follow other occupa tions, so firewood must now be piled up for next winter's use. Men are paid 80 cents to $1.25 per cord, according to the kind of land the wood grows on. If level and convenient, the smaller price is paid, while if hillv and difficult of access, choppers are obliged to have the top price in order to make wages. The late wet weather has interfered with the work, and it is during these damp spells the men like to make flying trips to town. Chopping and splitting is not considered desirable while the rain is failing, but the crosscut saws can be run in nearly all kinds of weather, if the workmen havs good luck in selecting locations.'' DEEH ISLAND NOTES. Travis Bros, loaded two cars of wood the last week. Miss May Enyart has recovered from her recent illness. Norman Merrill, of Clatskanie, was seen on our streets Sunday. Walter George is cutting ash wood for A. A. Merrill this winter. E. J. Barnes' new beard is the princi pal topic of discussion here. Mrs. Merrill was the guest of her daughter, Mrs. J. Wanty, Monday night. Miss Rhoda Mvers, who is at the Bum garder home, will return to Clatskanie soon. On examination it developed that the sealiona killed by J. M. Payne some time ago were nothing more than otters. The two young gents who walked up the railroad track have nothing to brag about but the fact that they did not have to go home alone, nor ride on the corner of a wagon box, either. Some party or parties without the fear of the Lord in their soul, and with the powder of the devil in their being, wrote several Deer Island items to Tub Mist two or three weeks ago, leaving the im pression that the regular correspondent wrote them, and which seemed to cause no end of criticism. The one mostly criticised was the item which spoke of the Christmas tree. No doubt the arti cle was written for a good purpose, but the regular correspondent does not claiui the credit. The next week, however, the item was properly and duly answered, although we noticed some misstatements in the answer, especially as to the sum of money realized as a result of the con tribution. We do not know the exact amount raised, but we do know of sev eral persons who contributed one dollar each, and we were at the hall in time to see two collections token up, the pro ceeds of which was put to excellent use by paying for the music. One would presume oy the article "Not Hunting a Row," that the complaint included tiie supper ; but it did not, as we understood it. The supper and programme to which we were treated' were all that could be asked for, and could not be excelled any where. Of the collection there was over $5 spent for candy and nuts. We are not acquainted with the gentleman who got his candy and went home, but it is a stubborn fact that some persons who contributed as much as one dollar got a sack of candy which was not of a first class quality. For the regular corres pondent he can say he is well satisfied and that he never enjoyed himself bet ter at any public demonstration; the dance also being a success. We hope our citizens will permit the dead to bury ita dead, and all heartily join hands for another good time next Christmas. Card of Thank. We wish to thank our friends and neighbors for their kind assistance to our family during the sickness and death of our father. i Mrs. Graoq and Family.

County Officer, are tha Target of Curse and Abase, Some people seem to imagine that as soon as a man is installed iii a county office he at once becomes a football to be kicked and knocked, and a target for the aim of ail torts of abuse, and the amount of the whimsical and imaginary abuses for which those gentlemen are responsible seems to have no bounds in the minds of many people. But for bearance on the part of the public servant is at all times a forced virtue, realizing, as he does, that he is a ser vant, and must meekly submit to all complaints and thumps which are hurled at him by many 'know-it-alls." tie nas noi recovered irom one druD- l.i nn Br Kan nrtm,.- m wi.l !,. 1.1. . . n. lashing from somebody else with a grievance. Our experience has tanght us that a county official will do more to accommodate the public than nine- tenths of the people, not office-holders, would do to accommodate a neigh bor. A case in point occurred this week when a person appeared at the clerk's office, and desired to make the purchase of the tax title of certain lots in Clats kanie, when Clerk Watts, acting in a kindly spirit, notified the owner that there was probability of additional costs being imposed upon him if the back taxes were not forthwith paid. Imagine the chagrin of the clerk, when he re ceived a missive from the we were going to call him gentleman stating that the clerk might do well to mind bis own Dusmess. i.'e letter concluded with the statement that "I do hope the time will soon come when honest men will be elected to office in Columbia county. We are not apprised of the name of the person who ia author of this letter. neither do we care who he may be; but ... rm. a i lui- ub bbv bins ; lust wucu you near a person utter such sentiment it is safe to conclude that the individual has at tempted repeatedly to beat the county out of tax money, and because he has been headed off, he accuses dis honesty on the part of the officers, hop ing to shield their own dishonest meth ods. To this same class of people belongs. to a very great extent, the existence of a public debt, through their refusal to pay their tax, and so soon as it is no longer possible to escape the law, which aims to force the payment of just debts, everything and everybody are accused of dishonesty except the one who is directly dishonest. Mark it down, that in these statements there is more truth than sentiment. CREDIT FOR OUR SCHOOL. A Display of Talent; An Occasion of Pleasure and Profit. The rehearsals which have been going on among the school children for some time for a public entertainment, came to a climax last Saturday evening, when a programme, which for display of talent ana progress, nas never Deiore been equaled in our city on such an oc casion. Each number of the programme was an entertainment within itself, which not only merits commendatory remarks on behalf of the children, but reflects credit upon the teachers for tbeir diligence and care in training the young mind to be abre to render their several parts so creditably. The enter tainment was given for the purpose of raising iuuus wiiu wuicu w purcuase a flag for the schoolhouse. a commendable undertaking, and all friends of the school, pupils, citizens and everybody will be pleased to Know that in this particular the effort was handsomely rewarded. No admission fee to the en tertainment was charged, but all who wished bo to do were invited to take a box or basket of lunch, which was dis posed of by auction after the pro gramme had been rendered. From the sale of the baskets there was $26.65 realized, with expenses not exceeding $3; hence a sufficient sum of cash was realized to purchase a large and service able national emblem, which soon will be hoisted over our public institution)! learning. Not only the teachers and pupils, but the entire population of our city feel a mutual interest and satisfac tion over the good returns from the eflorts of those to whom much credit is due. To go into detail and speak of each part of the programme is not nec essary, it was a success, and was well received by a very large audience. While Mr. Cleveland and Mrs. Way feel grateful to the public for the interest niannesieu anu miauciai aiu renuereu, it is but feeble acknowledgement of the kindly feelings of an interested public to say that the interest in our school, taken by the teachers, is universally commended and duly appreciated. ABOUT REOISTERINQ. Naturalisation Papers Host Be Ex hibited by the Voter.. Although the new law requiring the registration of voters has been in effect but about two weeks, enough confusion has developed to render life a burden to county clerks, and in a number of cases voters have declared tney would forego the privilege of voting before they would undergo the trouble necessary to secure the right of franchise. Thedffi- culty lies in the matter of naturaliza tion, those acquiring citizenship in that manner being forced to produce legal evidence of the fact that tney are natur alized. Legal evidence in this case means their original papers or certified conies of them, and to many of the old timers this is no easy task. In many cases men who have voted for twenty years and more in Clackamas county will be shut out unless they can secure copies of their papers issued in eastern courts long years ago. Another class who will suiter are they who were under age at me time their father took the oath of allegiance. In order to make their title clear they must present a copy of their father's papers or take out papers in their own name. As one year must elapse from tne time ot mak ing the declaration of intention before the final papers can be issued, it looks as though many votes would be lost from that cause. Taking it nil around, tiie naturalized voter has troubles of his own, and if he succeeds in securing his rights in most canes it will be at an ex pense of from $1 to $3 for certified copies. But there is one thing to be kept in mind, do cot blame the county clerk if he refuses to register you. llis duties are defined very clearly and he has no option but to adhere strictly to the letter of the law. He may know you are entitled to register bnt nave to refuse you unless you produce the "legal evidence," not to convince the clerk, but to satisiy the law. And above all, keep in mind the democratic slogan of "vote early and often" and register early. Oregon City Enterprise. Having; a Great Kan on Chamber lain's Cough Remedy.
