According to a New York dis
patch the Oregon and Transcontinental
officials say Yillard will call a meeting
soon after arriving at Portland,
until which timo no statement of the
affairs of the company will be made.
A squall frcm the south j'ester
day morning tore signs and ripped
canvass: behind it came a burst of
hail and rain that Hooded the streuts
and enforced the suspension of all out
cbor work. ApriLias been a stormy
month so far.
Wm. McCormick opens his anti
Chinese steam laundry to-morrow. It
is an institution that is needed, the
work in it will be done by white peo
ple exclusively, and it is certainly an
en;crpriso that should receive liberal
encouragement and patronage.
Frogs are plenty in Oregon .City.
A few days ago says the Enterprise
Con Tmel dug some post holes in the
Abernethy bottom. Inside of 48
hours they were almost filled with
live frogs that could not get out. One
hole had over 300 in it.
Geo Dixon has 3old his land and
logging outfit on Wcstport slough to
his brother Wm. Dixon, for $3,000.
and will move to his place on the
Clatskanie. He has also rented the
Woodard place, on Westport slough,
and intends to log them next winter.
The increasing importance of As
toria is in no way better exemplified
than by reference to the boats that
find business in carrying passengers
and freight to and from adjacent
points. First on the list come tho
ocean fleet, the State of California,
Queou of tho Pacific, Oregon and Col
umbia, coming and going from here
to San Francisco and back with al
most the same regularity as a river
ferry. They represent a million and
a half of capital and are as efficiently
conducted as any ocean service of the
continent. Next in point of impor
tance is tho increased convenience of
transportation on the river. We have
the Wide West, and Fleetwood, mak
ing flying trips between here and
Portland, bringing passengers 110
miles in less than seven hours for $2,
which is certainly tho cheapest, and
we believe the fastest traveling on the
coast. Besides theso two swift crafts
we have theS. G. Reed, and Mountain
Queen, as daily nnil and passenger
boats officered by courteous and ex
perienced men. Other boats belong
ing to the same company find plenty
of business at Astoria. Among them
are the Ocklahama, Wonder, Ordway,
Cooke, and Alice.
The boats that are owned in Astoria
and vicinity, and represent Astoria
enterprise and capital, so to speak,
are of special interest. These steam
ers arc building up a good trade, a
trade which by right belongs hero
and which Mill gradually in
crease to great proportions. The
Gen. Miles, and Gen. Canby are tho
property of tho I. S. N Co., the Gar
field and Montesano, of the S. B. T.
Co. ;thiRlatter company is iboutto build
a stern w heeler for the Chehalis and
put it on about the 15th of August.
The A. B. Fiold, which sailed from
hero to Tillamook on her first trip
last Tuesday, is another exponent of
progress which shall render tributary
to Astoria that magnificent btretch of
ocean empire lying between the 45th
and 48th parallels of north latitude
and embracing some of the richest and
most attractive portions of the great
northwest. Nor must there be omit
ted mention of that smaller fleet that
almost hourly ruffles the placid bosom
of our great river as they puff busily
toward tho different waterways of tho
county. The Westport, Lilian, Sam,
Magnet, Daisy, Relic, Edith, Argo
naut, Enterprise and others toot their
whistles and are as busy in their way
as though they too had ponderous
breadth of beam and drew twenty
fret of ttater. The latest addition to
Astoria's steamer list is the Moun
taineer, operated bj John A Devlin at
Dr. Aug. C. Kinney has obtained
some Beed of tho sugar-beet which will
be planted in several locations of this
county to test the Bugar producing
quality of our soil. If it is successful
it is thought there will bo no difficulty
in getting the sugar-beet capitalists of
California to put up a branch refinery
Thus touchingly doth tho Oregon
City Enterprise call up the dreamy long
age: "On Tuesday night Jack Trem
bath caught one chinook salmon. Ten
years ago before tho lower Columbia
was a network of seines thousands
Trero caught here. As it is wo expect
to catch forty or fifty moro here be
fore tho season is over."
Archie Clark, who was shot by
Charles Anderson March 29, is steadi
ly declining, at St Yincent's hospital
"where ho has been sinco the affair oc
curred. He is unconscious most of
tho time, and irrational; at long inter
vals he rallies long enough to recog
nize friends. His father is with
him constantly. Standard.
Mrs. Elizabeth Yaughn died at
her residence in this city last evening
after extreme suffering of several day's
duration. The sad news will be read
with sincere regret by a large circle of
friends whom the deceased had
endeared to her by many neighborly
acts of kindness, and who deeply
sympathize with her husband and
children in their bereavement.
On Tuesday evening next tho la
dies interested will give a sociable and
ice cream festival for tho benefit of
the Astoria Y. M. C. A. During tho
ovemng vocal and instrumental music
will bo introduced, and we understand
tho ladies intend to add a novel Jea
turo to the entertainment which will
be of much interest to the prettiest
lady and handsomest gentleman pres
ent on the occasion.
Mr. McCoy was intending to
burn brick on John Hobson's ground
tho present season, but will bo pre
vented from doing so on account of
sickness. There is a good opening for
abrickmaker. It is estimated that
ono million of brick will be needed in
Astoria this season. Some brickmak
ers are preparing to burn brick at the
mouth of tho Walluski on Youngs
river; they have the grounds ready
Keep the Money at Home.
Astoria is flooded with circulars
from San Francisco and Portland
houses, offering to sell goods of alleged
worth at very low prices. It is to
the interest of Astorians to patronize
Astoria merchants. They advertise in
their home paper, they bring trade
here, they keep full and attractive
stocks of merchandise and should bo
given the preference. If, as may
sometimes occur, there happen to be
an article called for that a grocer, or
dry goods merchant, or a hardware
dealer or furnishing store may not
have, the simple fact of mentioning
tho want will result in placing it on
the shelves forthwith. We do not
write in any petty or provincial spirit,
but on tne broad principle tnat you
can't build a place up nor make it
what it should be by sending else
where to get what you want, undor
the mistaken idea that you are going
to "save" a few cents. This matter
of "saving" admits of considerable
latitude in the way of definition. If
we want a coat, we go to someone in
town that makes coats, though wo
might get the same article for six bits
or a dollar less in Portland, yet if we
sent to Portland we would just so far
as that one littlo purchase lies, defer
the day when our merchant tailors
could successfully compete with Port
land. In the broader view of tho
matter it wouldn't bo economy. That
kind of scrimping doesnt build up a
Tho community is a community of
interest, as well as an aggregation of
individuals; it must possess a certain
amount of coherence in order to
amount to anything, and just a3 long
as our people buy cheap John goods
from peddlers and send to Portland or
San Francisco for every little thing
they require, just so much they tend
to keep Astoria from tho growth and
prosperity that awaits her.
If you want to buy a spool of thread,
or dress goods our stores will sell you
a spool of thread, or a web of lace, a
cloak, or a piece of dress goods with a
great deal moro satisfaction to yourself
than tho Portland merchant who
offers meretricious wares; if you want
to build a house, the Astoria carpen
ters and painters will give you good
work and when they get your money
it will be kept here and invested and
taxed and made to yield yon increased
facilities next year; if you want a
dres3 made, our Astoria dressmakers
are turning out as fashionable work
and as stylish fits as Portland; thero
is no actual need to send away, and
any one who has two cents worth of
interest in the place would rather
patronize an Astorian than not, unless
the difference in price aud quality is
I too plainly in favor of other places, a
combination of circumstances that in
nine esses out of ten does not exist.
"That blow yesterday was some
thing heavy" said the man with a
black coat and glazed cap. "Yes,
and it rained heavy while it did rain"
said the heavy man. "Pshaw, that
wasn't rain! that wis just a mist liko.
If you want to see rain you should
have been with me in 75."
"Would you replenish your glass
and tell us the details!" asked the
heavy man, politely.
"It was m tho winter of 75" said
the other, stirring his glass reflectively.
"I'd heed there was n good deal of
timber in them sections, and I was
kfen to get it. So me and my son
took a steamer and went up on
the northern coast, where no white
man had ever been before. As
soon as we landed we knowed we had
struck it rich. Gentlemen, there was
millions of acres, all cut and ready for
"Might I inquire who cut it! inter
rogated the heavy man, solemnly.
"You say no whiteman had ever beeu
"The polar bears had gnawed it off
searching'for honey!" replied he of the
glazed cap, cilinly.
"Go on with your thunder shower."
"Well, as I was telling yon, we
started right in, and in three weeks
we were richer than any eight men in
the states. There was no end to the
luck! Everything went our way from
the start. Wo had all the logs down
on the dock and were only waiting for
the boat to come and tako us off, when
I see clouds making to the south'ard
and I knowed it was going to settle ia
for thick weather. I told my son to
look out, and iu less than half an hour
there broke tho doggondest storm I
ever see. Rain! Why, gentlemen, it
rained so hard into the muzzle of my
gun that it busted the denied thing at
the breech! Yes, sir! And the water
began to rise on -us, too. .Talk about
your floods! Why, gentlemen, the
water rose so rapidly in our house
that it flowed up the chimney and
stroamed 300 feet up in the air! We
got it both wayj that trip, up and
"Do we understand that you are
relating facts within tho scope of your
own experience?" demanded the heavy
man, with his mouth wide open.
"Partially mine and partially my
sonV answered tho unabashed wearer
of the glsized cap. "Ho watched it go
up and I watched it come down! But
you can get some idea of how it rained
when I tell you that wo put out a bar
rel without any heads into it, and it
rained into the bunghole of that bar
rel faster than it could run out at both
"Which of you saw that?" inquired
"We each watched an end, my son
and me. I am telling you about a
storm now, gentlemen. But the
worst of all was the lightning. It
wasn't in streaks, it just stood still in
one flash, and when it got through,
you should have taken a look at that
timber! That timber was chopped in
to tho finest saw-dust yon ever got
your eyes on! Fine as snuff! Wasn't
a stick left half an inch long! You
never saw anything like it! There
was over $12,000,000 gone! Wo
thought wo might save the saw-dust
to mix paints with and save a couple
o' million out of the wreck, but while
wo was thinking that over, tho wind
sprang up, and then thero was music!
I've seen some wind in my time, but
no such wind as that ever blowed be
fore or anywhere else! Well you can
get an imperfect notion of how that
wind blew, when I tell you that it
blowed that saw-dust right back into
its former shape, and when that storm
passed off, thero stood them trees just
where they stood before the bees got
