Sftte gaita stQxintu ASTORIA, OREGON: SATURDAY- APRIL 7, 18ES Heavy Financiering . The New York Sunday Mercu ry of the 2d says: The news that Endicott of Boston was about to run an Oregon transcontinental reached the ears of D. O. Mil's on Thursday, and he marketed 5.000 shares while Endicott was writing his orders. This Northern Pacific system embraces $350,000,000 in stocks and bonds, and could John Law or the Duke of Orleans wake up they would appreciate the in significance of their financiering compared to that of Mr. Villard. Fifty years from now this capitali zation may be warranted by the increased value of their lands, but we are told by those who know that the sale announced of $10, 000,000 worth of land to an Eng lish syndicate has no foundation in fact. C. P. Huntington during the week has sold all the Central Pacific he could without utterly demoralizing the -stock. The Southern Pacific will soon be a powerful rival of this road, and the owners are selling out and investing in Southern Pa cific. There is quite a scare among the holders of Central Pa cific stock, as in case the Govern ment should compel the payment of the security, each holder ol 100 shares of stock will be liable to an assessment of $25 a share, as only ?5 per cent, has been paid in, and "will also be personally liable to the par value of the stock. The consequence is that a large number, of certificates have, during the last fortnight been transferred to straw names. Union Pacific was also sickly during the week, owing to a prospect of a cut in tariff rates by the Denver road, which will soon be completed to Ogden, and with it the Baltimore and Ohio will thus cut off a large portion of the Union Pacific traffic. Going Ahead. AWashington special says that the Nicaragua canal company, tired of waiting for action by con gress, and alarmed by the activity manifested by the Panama compa ny, is taking active steps for be ginning work on the proposed canal. The financial managers have been working quietly in New York and other money cen ters, and have made sucli favora ble progress that they will be able to begin operations in Nicaragua as soon as the season is over. Menocal, the engineer who sur veyed the routes for both canals, and who represented the American government at the canal confer ence at Paris is now at the Wash ington navy yard. His views on the subject have not changed, and he is earnestly favoring the Nic aragua route, so much so that he is an active member of the com pany which is preparing to under take the work, and is to take per sonal supervision of operations there, when begun. He confirms the report that the managers of the company are determined to go on; $45,000,000 is his estimate of the cost. Pointers. The New Orleans Picayune de- fines a complimentary vote as something that is thrown at a man to make him feel bad because he is not quite popular enough to be elected. Of the 140 members retired from the last congress, 100 are ap plicants for a Federal appointment. One of the '-lame-duck" members, in eloquently pleading for a place, said: "I must have a place; I cannot earn my living without one. There is great competition for the location of the new capital city for Dakota, and the talk is that the commissioners will come out of the contest with money enough to enable them to retire from political life and calmly "face the storm of mankind." A dispatch from Moscow states that a large mine has been dis covered, connecting with the Kremlin, where the coronation of the czar is t o take place. The telegrams also state that a request has been wired to St. Petersburg for 100 men to be sent at once to Moscow for the purpose of de stroying the mine. England is excited over the ar rest at London and Birmingham last Thursday, of men who had in their possession enough dynamite and other explosives to blow the kingdom to atoms, and who evi dently intended to use it if they got a chance, A Chicago journal' says that a printer has been cured by piayer, which leads a Texas paper to sa3r "if he was cured of extracting the word in a paragraph on which a joke hinges and substituting a word of his own 'to make sense,' as he puts it, we will indorse the prayer cure and give it a five-inch electro ad. free, one year5 top column, j next to reading matter." Chief-Justice Carter, of the supreme court of the District of Columbia, the other day inter rupted a lawyer who was saying thatctbe making of his will is one of the most noble acts of a man's life." Mr. .Carter spoke up in dissent, urging that will-making is a disagreeable job to most men- lie concluded in this way: '-If a man could take his possessions with him, j all the property of the earth would now be either in heaven or hell." As evidence of what a .deter mined woman can do, it is related that the daughter of a once wealthv Bostonian being reduced to the necessity of providing for herself, conceived the idea of putting up pickles and preserves for the market. She made her intention known to intimate friends, and they promised to become her cus tomers. There was no difficulty in selling all that she could pre pare with her own hands. The business increased, and grew to magnificent proportions with the third year. Now she is reaping a net profit of $10, 000 a year. Consul Francis, of Victoria, B. C, reports to the state department that the twenty salmon canneries of that province aggregated, for the season of 1SS2, 235,000 cases, valued at $1,175,000. Over 9000 cases were sent to Canada and Australia, via San Francisco. Francis says the salmon business on the coast of British Columbia and Alaska territory can be prose cuted with profit to almost an un limited extent. It is established beyond a doubt that the coast of Alaska, should canned or packed salmon meet in the future a con siderable demand in the states, could supply the same from this one of its inexhaustible resources NEW TO-DAY For Sale. fXSE HPNDRED CORDS OF DRY FIR Vf wood at lowest lates in lots to suit in ood at lowest lates m lots to suit nur- chascr.
