TfiflrHlf Vol. ix. Astoria, Oregon, Sunday Morning, May 25, 1879. No. 22. Spinner's Strike FACTS AND SCRAPS. WHOLESALE TRADE. xAnSCELLANEOUS. f 1 tefeg fi It appears l'kcly that all the Fall John Augustus Rogers, a Ivcn river cotton mills will be closed by a tncky temperance lecturer, lias s'.rike witHn a week or two.

The manufacturers seply that such a course wou'd destroy the small profits now made. The spinner's union has reso'ved 'o order a snrike in five of the mills, but which those mills are and exact 'y when the strike w-11 begin are the secrets of the executive com mittee. The strikers count on finan cial help rrom employes of the other milk, but the manufacturers say that a general s.oppage will follow the first) de lions ration. Heavy h.osses to both parlies arc anticipated, and much fiuffer'ng to the workers. The Victorious Oarsnmn. yew yrk Sun. Thc.c is oiie special reason for rejoicing over the victory which IIai.la.il, th oarsman, won so easily over-on the Tyne. Haiilun was the man to whom at the Centennial re gatta had beiMi awaided the cham pionship for single sculls, to the jrrcat disgust of his English com petitors and their friends, who had j -'never heard of him. that was the trouble, too, with the Ameri cans, who wrested the four-oared amateur championshp from the astounding and indignant London Rowing Club. This great club whose members had come over here for an e sy victory, had never heard of u er antagonist; that a set of men having such an unheard- f and -almost impossible name. ould fairly beat them, was not to be credited. Ever since then wo have heard about "American foul jalay" in rowing contests. But by ibis time his English friends have heard of Ilanlan, one of the Cen tennial winners. Should he go on to take the championship from England 1 -om Elliott, the thought may occur tht perhaps something else than 3 d plry gave the Cen tennial prizes to other American oarsmen.

Did disciples of the broad axe and adz would open lliei- eyes in as tou'shiiicnt ami pe 'iiaps holy hor ror, if they could see the band saw at Stetson and Post's eating its w&y so rapidly through the huge planks, following the curves an'd lines of the draughtman with per fect certainty. Yrhile an ordinary ship carpenter would be rolling up h;s sleeves and prepai ig to get ready to go to work, the little slender steel band- has shaped, cut clean, exact and smooih, more ribs than he could hew in a week. It is but a few days since we saw the first I02: rolled upon the carriage at the saw mill, but the frame has already assumed a "loeal habita tion and a name" from which the ve iest tyro may get some idea of how the boat will look when ready for launching. In sixty days from the lading of the keel, Mr. Mitchell intends to launch her. Men who can read the sigrs of the times s y that tin's city is destined to become the Bath of "the Pacific coast.
