There is a feeling in the minds of some
that tho telephone service in this city is
somewhat costly. The fact that some
subscribers have stopped makes it of less
valuo, on tho principle that the fewer

A tariff more in accordance with tho re

THK FUTl'RE M-'IVSI'APKH.
A few hundred years, says a writer in
tho Portland Transcript, makes a future
beyond all comprehension; wo have no
idea of tho possibilities, except by con
trasting with past and present." A news
paper of one hundred years ago is a curi
osity of more value than thousands-of-years-old
pottery and bric-a-brac. "Why?
Because it gives a true history of the time
when published, relates to facts that
would be otherwise unknown, touches
facts beneath the historian's notice, yet
of real interest to the people of to-day.
Take one jear's file of any metropol
itan daily of 18&4 one hundred years
from now, and you will have a history of
tho world beyond comparison. No his
torian would dare compete with tho sin
gle newspaper bought anywhere for 2 or
3 cents, worth to future generations sums
not to be covered by meney: in fact, be
yond value. All this has come about in
a hundred years. Now add a few hun
dred years to tho progress of tho nows
paper. and what will be the ontcome?
1. Every town will have a paper of its
own.
2. Type will bo set by machinery, with
the rapidity of electricity.
3. Every paper will contain a directory
of every soul in town, giving full name,
age, description, weight, business; direct
ly below these facts a spaco will be left,
and daily the varied movements of in
dividuals will be given; no matter how
simple tho fact, it will appear, and mako
a diary every day, such as many privately
keep at present.
4. A list of births, deaths and mar
riages will appear, including tho whole
world.
The paper will bo bulky, but not disa
greeably so; a table of contents will
readily put the reader in the right track,
and book-form of about the size of the
Transcript will make an easily handled
Eaper which will bo sufficiently stiff to
old easily. No event will be too small
to appear; all business, pleasuro, sorrow
will be depicted in concise and appropri
ate form. As a referenco, tho paper of
the futuro will be equal to an encyclo
paedia of to-day.
Oregon Ahead.
Tho New Orleans Times-Democrat of
January 24tb, reports that the claim made
by the Oregouians that their state pro
duces the best fruit grown upon the Pa
cific slope, has been substantiated by
he awards recently made in Horticul
tural hall. The entries for premiums
were small, owing to the fact that a great
portion of the fruit intended for compe
tition was frost-bitten during transit to
this city, and it was only by depriving
the display in tho government building
that tho commission were enabled to
make an entry for the best collection of
five varieties grown in and adapted to
ibe coast climate, and for best collection
of five varieties crown in and adapted to
the mountain climate. In both instances
Oregon captured tho medal and premi
um. Out of practically seven pinto en
tries tho state took five premiums, and
still glories in tho honor of being the
champion of the Pacifiic coast for
fruit.

An Iraportsnt Extension of the Service at
A -.tori.
Mr. J. N. Griflin. in charge of tho gov
ernment meteorological station in this
city, states that tho extension of the ser
vice on this coast has resulted in tho "es
tablishment of an additional office at As
toria, the result of its daily observations
being of prime importance to tho com
merce of the Columbia. "Wherever
throughout the United States "Old Prob
abilities" has established a branch office
the resultant benefit to commerce and
agriculture has amply justified tho outlay.
On the coast lino of the Union com
merce demands an efficient signal service;
it realizes tho value of a weather bureau,
and any measure increasing the efficiency
of that department of public service is
of benefit. The building a telegraph lino
from Astoria to Cape Hancock and the
establishing there a signal station was of
great benefit to the commerce of the
northwest coast, and rue further estab
lishing of an office in this city where
daily weather reports will be sont from
and received will be of proportionate
value.
It has only been by the most persistent
and long continued effort that an appro
priation has been obtained for tho estab
lishment of this branch of the signal
service on this coast. The offices already
established are San Francisco, Astoria anil
Cape Hancock, and the service will, no
doubt, bo extended ns rapidly as circum
stances will permit.
An ingenious code of signals is uovised
for coast stations, which afford means of
instant communication between vessels
and the shore. By day arrangement of )
llags lettered from IS to w, givo such sig
nals as "Want immediate assistance;"'
We are coming;" "Do not attempt to
land;" Damaged rudder, cannot steer;"
"Engine disabled;' "Your arc standing
into danger;" "Heavy weather coming;
look f harp;" "Bar impassable;' "Cast
off;" "Make fast:" "Slack away:" "Hold
on till high water:' "I am on fire:" "I
am sinking:' "Want assistance:" "Want
a steam tug;' etc., etc
Cautionary signals are also to be dis
played: A square red flag with a squaro
black center by day, and a red light by
nieht eives warning of an approaching
storm. A cautionary off shore signal is a
whito flag with a black square in the
center shown abovo a red flag with a
black square in the confer by day, or a
white light shown abovo a red light by
night, is "cautionary with winds expected
to blow from a northern or western di
rection, or off shore, at or near the place
at which the signal may be."
"When tho present condition of affairs
in tho vicinity of the mouth of the river
is contrasted with that of a few years ago
it will be seen how much progress has
been made here in this important branch
of tho public service.
"ttXAMETKY."
"What! yon fit my dress by measur
ing my nock?' said an Atlanta lady of
fashion to her dressmaker.
"That is all I want," was tho reply.
"Dear me," said the lady, "how
strange.'
"Gynametry is the name of tho sci
ence," said the lady with tho measure
"The system of measuring the female
figure was discovered by me after years
of patient study and hard work. Pro
fessors Bartlct and Battle gave the new
science tho name of 'gynametry,' which
is mado up of the Greek words that mean
female measurement. The rules, how
ever, which apply to tho female figure
apply with equal and absolute force to
the male figure.'
"Do you mean to say you can make
my dress fit by simply measuring my
neck?"'
"I do, if I see you."
"And if you don't seo me?"
"Then I must know the measure of
your neck, the measure of your waist,
and which toe is longest.
"Dear me! Vny do vou want to know
which toe is longest?"
"Jf your big too is longest your shoul
ders aro squaro. If your second too is
longest your shoulders aro drooped, and
tho waist is correspondingly shorter.
Drooping shoulders are those that slop?,
from the neck outward, not stooped
shoulders.'
"Hes vour svstem anv connection with
the theory of twice around the wrist is
once around the neck, etc'
"Not at all. This is fallacy. It will not
work out. It is impossible to measuro
the human form with a tapo line. You
simply cannot measure the back to save
your life. But my system does it, and I can
make a lady's dress and never see her, by
simply having the measurements that I
have named." Atlanta Constitution.

AN ENGLISH REVKRSK.
Kbartonra Captnred; Cordon Mining:
Stewart Ai sa&sinated.
Col.
Loxdon, Feb. i. Tho war office has
issued the follewing: "Telegrams from
"Wolsely announco that the fall of Khar
toum took place on January 2G. Ho says
that Colonel "Wilson arrived at Khar
toum January 23, and was greatly sur
prised to find that the enemy wero in
possession of that place. He immediate
ly started on his return down the river,
and proceeded under a heavy fire from
the rebels. When some miles below tho
Shublaka cataract Colonel Wilson's
steamers were wrecked, but he and his
whole party managed to reach an island
safely, where they are secure. A steamer
has gone to bring them back to the Brit
ish camp near.Metemneh. Wolsely says
he has no information regarding the fate
of Gordon, and does not know whether
he is d&ad or alive."
There is no longer any doubt that El
Mahdi holds possession of Khartoum.
Tho excitement in London and every
where throughout the British isles, where
the news is known is rising to fever heat.
Most people take a gloomy view of the
position of tho British troops in the Sou
dan. The jubilant gladness which has
characterized England in regard to
Egypt ever since the welcome news of
Stewart's successful arrival in the neigh
borhood of 31etemneh was recived 13 now
changed to dread.
The war office is besieged with army
officers, tendering their services for ac
tive duty in the Soudan. The capture
of Khartoum has created grave fears,
especially in army circles, for the safety
of General Stewart and his army. A
number of military officers of repute,
even expressed tho opinion that unless
reinforcements are hurried forward to
Korti the fall of Khartoum may lead to
a disaster to the forces under Wolsely
and General Earle. A cabinet council
has been summoned to meet at once.
Gladstone is fearfully disturbed by tho
news, and some peoplo say he will soon
resign. The news of tho downfall of
Khartoum has created grave apprehen
sion in regard to the whole Egyptian
problem among members of the cabinet.
Gladstone and Earl Granville started for
London as soon as tho news reached
them. A cabinet council will be held
this evening.
The first news of the fall of Khartoum
received by Gen. Wolscley was brought
by a messenger, who left the island where
Colonel Wilson is stranded, and came on
foot to Gubat, news of Khartoum's fall
not being then known in the desert. In
telligence of tho disaster, however, has
since spread far and wide, and some
tribes that had hitherto professed friend
ship for England have declared for El
Mahdi.
Natives report that El Mahdi has 60,000
men in the vicinity of Khartoum, and ho
introduced a number of his emissaries
into tho city. These emissaries mingled
freely with native troops under Gordon,
and by bribes, threats and working on
their religions feelings, induced them to
deserted to the robels, leaving Gordon
only 2,500 faithful soldiers. With this
small force he attempted to hold the city
against El Mahdi'a great army, but after
severe fighting, in which large numbers
of rebels were killed, he was compelled
to surrender.
When Sir Charles Wilson reached
Khartoum he found that El Mahdi's forces
occupied both the town and tho citadel.
He tried to land and ascertain the fate of
Gordon, but this step ho found impossi
ble. Tho enemy s guns wero turned upon
him in full force, and he was therefore
compelled to turn his back upon the fallen
city and return to Gulpat without finding
oat whether Gordon is dead or alive.
The stoker of Colonel Stewart's steam
er reports ho left Khartoum on the
steamer Abbass with Stewart, two Eu
ropean consuls, Hassam Bey, twelve
Greeks and several natives. Two other
steamers accompanied them to Berber,
which place they shelled. Four Nuggars
accompanied the expedition to Abu
Hamed, when the Abbass proceeded
alone. She struck a rock two feet under
water when near the island "VTadygarae.
The whole party then landed on the is
land. Stewart subsequently returned to
the steamer, spiked the guns threw the
ammunition overboard and returned to
the island. The eutiro part3 were un
armed with the exception of Stewart
who had a small revolver. The natives
assembled on the right hand of the river,
sheuting: "Givo us peace and grace."
Suleiman Pasha sent a messenger invit
ing Stewart to his house. The whole
party then crossed tho river. Suleiman
then took Stewart, the consuls and Has
sam Bsy to the.housc of a blind man
named Emdor Fnkin to drink coffee.
While insido the house Suleiman
camo out and motioned to the
natives, who formed two parties-
armed with swords and spears. Une par
ty entered the house and killed Stewart
and the two consuls. Hassem Bey es
caped wounded and was afterward taken
to Berber. Tho second party attacked
the rest of Stewart's people, among whom
was the narrator of this story, who swam
to on island and hid until dark. He was
afterward taken a prisoner to Berti.
Stewart had landed stores and provisions
from the steamer, which had mado four
trips to the island. Many of his party
were drowned in trying to escape. Tho
bodies of Stewart and others wero thrown
into tho river. Suleiman's followers di
vided all the money they could find and
sent other spoils in boats to Berbor.

The stato had in its swamp and other
lands a valuable property. But that
property has mostly been squandered.
When Governor Grover "organized tho
offices' he and his associates devised a
scheme to disposo of the swamp lands of
the state. It has been carried out, and
so successfully that tho state neither has
tho lands nor anything to show for them,
except a lot of warrants, amounting to a
very large sum, drawn on the swamp land
fund, but which there is no money to pay.
Oreyonian.
Jno. F. Caples is a slick-tougued, oily
stump speaker, and can do more to make
his Sunday school laugh, or "bring down
the house'' nt a ward meeting than any
man in Oregon. He is also a jolly, whole
souled, good fellow, that has as little
meanness in the way of greed, selfishness
or avarice, as any man that Portland
over elected to public office. According
to Cronin's account, when St. Peter shut
the gates of Hciven against Joe Dolph,
because ho was a lawyer, Caples went in
without a question "because he was not
lawyer enough to hurt anything." The
heart and sympathies of Caples are un
doubtedly with and for the common peo
ple, the toning m&ssus, anu in our osu
niation this should cover a multitude of
sins. Vidflte.
