ASTORIA, OREGON, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1883. PRICE, F1VJS UJBJNTS. A Wheel Within a Wheel. The Lumberman some time since mentioned that a sjudicate, or com pany, had been formed, called the Oregon & Montana Improvement Company,, the apparent object of which was to monopolize the lumber trade of the mountain districts of Montana and Idaho. The Lumber man was the first journal that sur mised and pointed out that the "im proveinent company" was a scheme intimately connected with the North ern Pacific Railway management to control the Eoclcy mountain lumber business along the great northern route, especially in Montana, Idaho and west of the mountains. An item dropped by a Pacific coast newspaper indicates that the Lumberman was right. The statement is made that rates on lumber to private parties have been raised from S1G to $21 from llathdrum to Sprague, "W. T., showing that the Oregon & Montana Improvement Company is geting in its work. ''To private parties" is significant; a corporation like the child of the Northern Pacific, .named an "Improvement Company" can have terms that will eflctually bar out com petition. The nature of this mono poly can best be seen by repeating the conditions by which the Oregon & Montana Improvement Company received its great privilege. The capital of the organization is 32,000,000, and the company isl to control the lumber business for twenty years along the Northern Pa cific road, from Miles City to the Dalles on the Columbia. The com. pany, by the terms of agreement, is required to establish lumber yards, and keep a flock of lumber on hand at eacb of the principal points be tween the places indicated, and as far as possible protect the timber lands of the railroad company from spoliation, The latter is to be paid for the stumpage used, and reserves the right to limit and control the amount to be cut. It also has the option to haul and store at selling points selected, at its own lime and convienience, thus enabling it to uti lize empty cars and light trains with out interfering with regular traffic. It is thus apparent that the Oregon and Montana Improvement Company is la sort of annex to the Northern Pacific railroad to control the manu facture and sale of lumber along its line within the limits designated. The long stretch of country from the mountains to the Dalles includes the vast wheat lands of eastern Washing ton, that will be rapidly settled, now that the eastern outlet by rail has been secured. A monopoly of the lumber trade of this region, by which the forest resources of northern Ida ho and Montana can be developed, is a great accomplishment for any com pany. But the settlers in eastern Washington will be the sufferers for a few years. Some relief may come at length by the opening of railways, and from rival lines that will surely cross the vRockies from the Missouri river. Success in Life. Without unremitting"labor. success in life, whatever our occupation, is impossible. A fortune is not made without toil, and money unearned comes to few. The habitual loiterer never brings anything to pass. The young men whom you see lounging about waiting for the weather to change before thej go to work, break down before they begin get stuck before they start. Ability and will ingness to labor are the two great conditions of success. It is useless to work an electric machine in .1 vac uum; but the air may be full of elec tricity, and still yon can draw no spark until you turn the machine. The beautiful statue may exist in the artist's brain, and it may also be said in a certain sense, to exist in the mar ble block that stands before him, but he must bring both his brain and hands to bear upon the marble, and work hard and long, in order to pro duce any practical result Success also depends in a good measure upon the man's promptness to take advant age of the rise of the tide. A great deal of what we call "luck" is noth ing more nor less than this. It is the man who keeps his eyes open, and his hands out of his pockets, that sue ceeds. "I missed my chance," ex claims the disappointed man, when he sees another catch eagerly at the opportunity. But something more than alertness is needed; we must know how to avail ourselves of the emergency. An elastic temperament which never seems to recognize the fact of defeat, or forgets it at once, and begins the work over again, is very likely to insure success. JManv anerchant loses one fortune only to buildup another and a larger one. Many an inventor fails in his first ef forts, and is at last rewarded with a triumph. Some of the most popular novelists wrote very poor stuff in the beginning. They were learning their hrst trade and could not expect to turnout first-class work until their apprenticeship is over. One great secret of success is not to become dis couraged but always be ready to try againc Jix. It is said that glass is gradually beginning to take the place of wood and iron in the construction of bridges in England. The inventor makes blocks of glass, which he hard ens by a special process. In solidity it is said to leave nothing to be de sired. The experiments already made have given surprising results, and the cost is below that of bridges of wood and iron. Moreover, the glass cannot be injured by insects like wood, nor rusted like iron. An Indianapolis paper thus sums up the divorce market in that locality Brisk competition among our local lawyers has brought down the prices of divorces. We quote: Common sep aration, $15; small alimony, $25; large alimony, 00U to 100, according to cir cumstances. Business good and in creasing. There are at present 120 newspapers in the United States, of which the publishers, editors, and chief contnb ntors are negrroes. A Printer's Dream. A printer sal in his office chair, his boots were patched and his coat threadbare, and his face looked weary and worn with care. While sadly thinking of business debts old Mor pheus slowly aronnd him crept; and sleeping, he dreamed that he was dead, from trouble and toil his spirit had fled, and that not even a cowbell tolled for the peaceful rest of his cow hide sole. As he wandered about among the shades that smoke and scorch in the lower hades, ho slowly observed an iron door, that creaking hung on hinges ajar, but the entrance was closed with a red hot bar, and Satan himself stood peeping out, and watching for travellers thereabout, and thus to the passing printerspoke: "Come in, my dear, it will cost you nothing, and never fear, this is the place where I cook the ones who never pay their subscription sums; for though in life they may escape, they will find when they're dead it is too late; I will show you the place where I melt them in with red hot chains and scraps of tin, and also where I comb their head with broken glass and melted lead, and if of refresh ments they only think, there's boiling water for them to drink, there's the red hot grindstone to grind down his nose, and the red hot rings to wear on his toes, and if they mention they dont like fire, Til sew up their mouths with red hot wire: and then, dear sir, you should sec them squirm, while I roll them over to cook to a mm. With these last words the printer awoke, and thoneht it all a practical joke, but still at times so real did it seem, that lie cannot uciieve it was au a dream, and often he thinks with a chuckle and grin, of the fate of those who save their tin and never pay the printer.

Alaska has a coast line of 23,000 miles, or two and a half times as much as the Atlantic coast Ifne of the remaining portion of the United Stales. The Newcastle coal mines, with the exception of the Bagley vein, have closed down on account of the appear ance of black damp. The Northern Pacific road gives notice that it has decided to allow 150 pounds of first-class baggage with ever first-class ticket, ooth on through and local business. The Un ion Pacific road allows 150 pounds as far as Ogden, but the Central mid Southern roads allow but 100 pounds with each ticket. John C. Davenport, iho Cheney banker, who recently failed, has re turned to that place. Air. JJaven port promises to pay all his debts, dollar for dollar, if only au opportu nity is given him of doing so. William Andrews, au old farmer living in the suburbs of Saco, Me., has in his cellar nearly fifty barrels of wine, He will not drink it, sell it, trive it awaVi or throw it away. As he made it all himself, its sale would not only conflict with the state laws, but with national ones, and the property keeps improving in quality every year, to the exasperation 01 Air.
