In Justice Bush wilor's court yesterday, William Kelley was tried for the larceuj' of a dog from Jas. Cook. It appears that Cook sent tho dog to Kelley from Astoria, in tba care of ono Roberts some time ago. with instruc tions to deliver it to one Sophie Smith. Kolley, instead of doing this, however, kept the canine, and about a month afterwards sold it to Jake Brenner for $20. Cook arrived in town a few days ago, and learning what disposition had been made of the animal, had Kelley arrested for stealing it. Kelley claimed that tho dog had been sent to him as a present, but Judge Bushwiler seemed in clined to doubt his statement, and fined him 2Ti. sending him to jail for twelve days in default of payment Cook now signifies his intention of entering suit against Brenner for the recoverv of his terrier. Standard, 27. Police Couet. The benches in the court room yesterday afternoon were filled, and when the judge unrolled a weighty legal volume, F. D. Winton arose and said that in reference to the two prisoners, Munson and Sawmiller-, the city had 110 jurisdiction. Police Officer Steabb had arrested them and they had previously been arraigned on a charge of taking a prisoner away from au officer, but according to the law as laid down by the city attorney such action constitutes a state offense and does not come under the jurisdiction of crim inal procedure. Tho aforesaid gentlemen were told that their road to freedom was . unobstructed, and as tho deputy district attorney did not apprehend them, they arose and went hence. The cases of Robert Wihlgren and John Wiseman, charged with keeping bawdv houses, were continued till to-day. Max Curtis plead not guiltj' to a charge of drunken ness preferred against him, but the ar resting policeman's story was so strongly against the plea that the judge imposed a fine of $10. Heavy Weatheb in El Paso. The wind-turned loose down in El Paso the other day, just the same as in Astoria last Wednesday. The next morning the Herald local turned loose, thusly: 4Friday was devil's day in this city, and tho devil was surely delighted. The winds blow a hurricane and sand filled the air.

With many others The Astoeian's thea trical reporter sat on x cushioned fa tetdl at Liberty hall last evening and saw the clever doings of C. H. and Orilla Read. Without anj particular reference to the performance which was good of the kind, it started a train of thought in the aforesaid reporter's mind. It a grand causeway could bo construc ted between the earth and the far off un known country called "the Better Land," what shoals of peojde would be forever traveling up and down on tours of in spection. Human nature, lacking such a bridge, insists on a fruitless search after means of communication with the super natural. For good or for evil, for selfish or for unselfish reasons, myriads of men and women find an awful fascination in trying to solve the great nystery. One man investigates because he is an unboliever in immortality and wishes to believe. Another that he may become a medium and make monej. A third be cause ho longs to speak with a much loved daughter or wife who has gone be fore. And so it goes on. And so year after year, clairvoyants, fortune, tellers, spiritual mediums, all find clients and followers in all places. That thess peo ple die and suffer misfortunes, poverty and disease themselves which tiioy are totally unable to avert does not discon cert tin peopl- who dock to them, be lieving in their ability to forewarn and forearm others against coming diffi culties and sorrow. There is no estima ting the influence physical, mental and moral, exerted by some of those sooth sayers. Speaking some time ago of one of his patients, a woman of highly sensi tive imaginative organization, a physi cian said: "She is dying by inches, from tho effecLsof a single interview with a clairvoyant."' The individual whom she consulted went into a trance and in the midst of horrible contortions and spasms told her that he saw a snake writh ing and twisting in her stomach. Her ill-health dates from this in tervicw, and from being n healthy person she has become a confirmed invalid. She fancies she feels distinctly the motions of this reptile. She is constantly nauseated and has become dangerously nervous. Neither arguments nor raillery affect her belief in the least. This man succeeded in one interview in making her have faith in him. What many a good man might have failed to command from her after working for yetrs. he compassed in one fatal half hour. The power of such men and his confreres is due in a great meas ure to the influence of a stronger will over a weaker one. Many of them have a certain measure of dramatic talents by the help of which they cm make impossi bilities seem possible. Among these in our memory is a pretty little woman who goes into trances and calls herself a clair voyant, although she admits quite frankly that she does not know what she is. Years ago. when a little child, she recol lects clasping her arms around a swing and looking dreamily into space until it seemed to her as if her soul was dissev ered from her body and she had visions. They were not of her own future, but of the future of others, and when she awakened from this dream or trance oulv the latter part of the closing chapter was remembered. Her father, a stern, old Puritan, was at a loss to know how to eiorcise this devil, for whippings and punDflShutei.ts were of iio avail. She 97. J evvry opportunity to ietf this p-mvr. As'.sJh " w older, however, and won1 to seuo.l. the B'.'i' r .Vfr shamed her out of what th-.-y called '"Vi eh uon acus?." At eightef 11, having a hwirt like other women, she foil in love, inarried and becanip the mother of ti little children. With busy hands and a happy life the old pernicious tendency towards dreams ami virions wits well nigh forgotten. No trance warned her of the approach of that unrt'.enting visitor, death! He came as t- tii most ordinary mortals. unexpect -J il unan nounced. On a'rajatjk,niiit'k- t.o stood on the irch of ber little boast, with fcer baby crowing in her arias, four men ap I proached with a horrible burden, the in animate form of her husband mangled by machinery. Then came sickness, pov erty, debt, and despair. Her children were looking at her with hungry eyes. She grew wild and unlike herself and was beset anew by visions and dreams. She saw visions of the future happiness of her friends and neighbors, until final ly she told a credulous woman one day her fortune. Then another cam e and an other, and presently tho desolate widow became known asaclain03Tant a woman with a power to divine the future. She went to sleep with rigid muscles and star ing eyes and saw people's lives unrolled before hor as an immense panorama. Sho tom ner visitors how mends professing to love them, really were implacable ene mies. Sho told of comins sickness, of good fortune for those who invested money in such and such a manner. And all this was given forth with such burn ing and rapid intensity that she never failed to convince. It is not too much to say that whole lives have been ordered ana altered upon this woman's words. Friends have been separated and brought together; wives and husbands have been rendered happy or miserable; monev made or lost; residences changed; busf-1 ness put aside; joanieys taken from ono part of the country to another. The woman herself, meanwhile, made money, cuuraa-u uei cuuunia, Hft up uer son 111 a lucrative business, and owned her first little home for rest and recreation. Bat while she had been busy averting the mis fortunes of others, had she kept her own sky free from clouds? Ah, no! The light of her life went out. Her beautiful, ac complished, cherished daughter died. Neither trance, nor vision, nor spell, nor dream warned her, and yet it was no ill ness, but an accident which, could it havo been foreseen, might easily have been prevented. Tho girl went to ride, the horse took fright, and sho died of in ternal injuries. If spirits come to her mother and tell hor of the destinv of others, are they not cruel devils which hover around and leave her powerless to protect her own? All there is to it is that sho is r. highly strung, overwrought woman, who needs treatment by a competent specialist in her own case. She calls tho people who come to see her. appropriately enough, "her patients." One lady lias been to see beronce a week for eleven years. She limits herself to three trances" a day and she charges $5 for each trance. 'Then she tells fortunes by cards, and, in one way and another makes from $lf to $20 a da3 Even her own sorrowful experi ences, which she relates quite unre servedly and pathetically, do not deter tho people who consult her from return ing again and again. Reason is not the strong point with those who find it possi ble to believe in divinations. They will believe implicitly a lortune-teller who says: "Unless you take the greatest care a terrible sickness will overtake yon." Any observant person might make the same remark, but without avail. It is the imperious positiveness which com mands their clients and their plausibility. Something is due also to their general cleverness and their occasionally shrewd guesswork. They are students, and suc cessful students too. of the weaknesses of human nature, which are so pitifully revealed to them.' As one said, when misfortunes visited her: "I believe m neither God nor mnn' And ko thev rro on making miserable wrecks of their lives and tho lives of others.

A former largo holder of Oregon Trans continental stock, whom Mr. Villard's friendship is said to have cost $iX),000, says: "When Heinrich Hilgard was a New York reporter he is said to have been al most communistic in his democracy. Nothing pleased him more than to lie able to puncture the epidermis of a mill ionaire. When his salary reached SjOa week he felt himself as good as a prince. Once in a while a board bill would em barrass him. but he did not let iuch mai -ters trouble liim. "Some years after the war he returned to Germany. About the same time the panic occurred, and the bottom fell out of all railroad securities. The foreign holders of Kansas Pacific stocks and bonds wero in despair. Their property had become valueless, and they were helpless. Mr. Hilgard appeared as a de liverer. Ho sought these persons out and told them that ho possessed information and an idea which would restore their property to its former value. To such good effect did he tcik that they appoint ed him their agent. He came" to Amer ica again and succeeded so well that whin he sold tho roud to Jay Gould he made $300,000 out of the operation. This was his start. He then came to Oregon and soon controlled the phenomenal Oregon Railway and Navigation Company. From this a new company was evolved "and the new oiupany had a now president with a new name. He became Henry Villard. This company has stood the most re markable stock-watering on record. "Mr. Villard invented tho blind pool. He called upon all his friends to enter. Having blind confidence, we did. We subscribed 31,000,000. He was our trustee. The Oregon and Transconti nental Company was formed. It has been the receptacle for the loads which Mr. Villard and others accumulated in their speculations. If the deal was profit able it was Villard's, if unprofitable the company's. Into it he emptied his Rail way and Navigation, stock around 1."j0. Of courso the compatry could not stand this. "The heaviest losers are his friends, those who had confidence in him. Mr. Billings has lost hundreds of thousands. D. O. Mills, Geo. M.PulIniau, Horace Por ter, A. H. Barnej-, B. P. Cheney. W. K. VauderbUt, C. B. Wright havo all lost. They are among the worst hurt and can stand it. Somo of the others cannot. "Mr. Villard has scarce an' of the stock of anj" of these companies left. His name appears on the Northern Pacific books for a small amount bought for tho occasion, but most of this has since been sold. He has not lost." "Five years ago he had hard work to pay his office rent in the Continental building. To-day he is worth ten mil lions. He has a 1 wo-million-dollar house, and a two-milliou-dollar claim against tho Oregon and Transcontinental com pany among other things. A little while ago he transferred a half million dollars in government bonds to his wife. I con sider it the most gigantic piece of rail road inflating ever accomplished. It's a masterpiece."' W11EI1E SOMZ OP THK MOSEY IS. Mr. V. on the 17th, moved into his wonderful New York palace. This tri umph of architecture has been described at length in Tnc AsroniAJi. It is mod elled both in its exterior and interior after a Roman palace, and consists really of six houses. Mr. V. himself occupying one entire wing, which is soparated from the other by an enclosed court. In height it is four stories above tho basement. The drawing-room?, occupying the front of t jo house, are furnished jnSght woods richly carved, with an aliuy1uXce of rich tipsstries. Tho diuinr:-,oni TajftKoHfU.- tirely in curved jfood. The Tiall is of yJlow taarble. the floor beinr? in mosrJc Trrthe ceiling in a vaulted arch, or miner ssnra oi arcnes, nil in maroie ana designed by St Gaudiens. It alone will cost $00,000 when completed. Tho music room, at the extremity of tho hall, is tho most costly room in the mansion. It occupies two stories, and is a miniature theatre. The gallery for tho musicians is after a gallery in the Fontainebloau palace. It will probably bo two 3'oars before the finishing touches can be put on this room and the decorations are ex pected to cost $75,000. None of the work has been done by contract, so that the exact expense has been unknown, but it is stated by the architects that the struc ture finished would cost fully a million dollars unfurnished. Over nine hundred thousand dollars had been expended somo time ago. High wages have been paid for the most skilled workmen, the Italian artists some of thorn demanding, it is reported, $10,000 before coming to this country. For three weeks, furniture of tho most sumptuous kind had been arriving. Heinricb. has stated that the interior decorations and furnishing of his house would cost nearly a million dollars. Marcott & Co., of Paris, have manufac tured the furniture. There are sets of chairs which cost $500 apiece, on whoso backs arc oil paintings of real merit. It has cost ;S0,OQ0 to put this furniture in place alone. The main floor of the new house is not 3et completed. Workmen will be em ployed on it all winter. Six artists brought from Italy for the work are decorating the music room and main halt The labor is of the finest nature, and the best of sculptors are employed on the marblo work. Fifteen inferior work men are doingtho less important work. Heretofore Hileard has lived nfc his Dobbs Ferry house, stopping at hotels when remaining in town. The Dobbs Ferry place cost him nearly a half mil lion. The ground alone is worth 5.500 an acre. The decoration of one room, mi. . j 1? f ' aone in gold, cost $50,twu. There he lived in elegant style, keeping a stable of twenty horses, and entertaining in a bo coming manner. There was always a retinue of servants about tho place, but most of them have now been brought to the new palace, the housekeeper being left in charge at Dobbs Ferry. It is un derstood that in the summer, when not at the watering places, he will occupv this country seat. Cakadian Pacific. "Writing of the prospects of the Canadian Pacific, tho Victoria Post gives tho following facts: "The road is to run from Montreal to Port Moody, just above Victoria, in British Columbia. The distance is 2SG9 miles from ship to ship. That is about 425 miles less than the distance by way of the C. P. and U. P. and Chicago from San Francisco to New York. This dis tance is divided into five sections, as fol lows: First from Montreal to Callender, in Ontario, 815 miles; second from Cal lender to Port Arthur. C50 miles: third from Port Arthur to Winnepeg, 435 miles: fourth from "Wianepeg to summit of the Rocky Mountains, 122G miles; fifth from summit of the Kocky Mountains to Port Moodv, 213 miles, which makes up the total of 2SG9 miles of the main trunk from ship to ship.
