ASTORIA, OREGON:
THURSDAY.
..-FEBRUARY 10. 1887
Or fifteen Republican senators
to be sworn in on the 4th of
March, four are ex-confederates.
In" 1852, Daniel Webster, dis
cussing the fisheries question, pre
dicted .that "congress will never do
anything."
, - -
A credulous English paper
graTely asserts that western grass
hoppers are put up in this country
for French sardines.
The much-talked-of letter from
Pius IX to Jefferson . Davis has
been, discovered. It was a plea
for peace more than anything else.
The California legislature, now
in session at Sacramento, pays a
man four dollars a day to wind up
the clock. It is an eight-day
clock too.
There has been an enormous
increase of the German forces en
the French' frontier, the force hiv
ing been?aised from 40,000 to
90,000. This has heen met by a
corresponding increase in the
French frontier forces, and the two
armies are now separated only by
a neutral zone of from twenty to
one hundred miles.
SoilE ingenious if not ingenu
ous defenses have been made by
criminals and pliintiffi in criminal
cases. O'Neill, one qf New
York's convicted boodle aldermen,
comes to the fsont with a good
one of its class. Hesas that he
was elected by bribing voters,
therefore legally, he was not elect
ed at all, therefore he was not a
member of the council at all,
hence the money he took for his
vote shouldn't be laid up against
him. But he'll iron shirts at Sing
Sing all the sime.
A fire broke out near the gov
ernment wharf in Detroit and the
offi-er in charge called a tug,
which put out the fire. The bill
was sent to Washington and pay
ment refused because the officer
did not advertise for sealed pro
posals to put out the fire and have
it done by the lowest bidder.
When another fire breaks out in
government property that officer
will put an advertisement in the
papers asking for the lowest bid
der to put it out. That is red
tape.
The announcement that Bas-
tian Thiessen, a prominent citizen
of Jefferson couuty, Nebraska, has
been arrested in Russia and prob
ably executed, is exciting great
interest in that state, and action
will be taken to ascertain the
truth of the report, and if he is
alive an effort will be made to se
cure his release. Theissen was an
escaped exile from Siberia,
whither he had been sent for ni
hilism. His object in visiting
Russia was to secure some money,
and he expressed confidence in his
ability to elude detection and ar
rest. He went to Nebraska three
years ago, located with the Men
nonite colony and engaged exten
sively in silk enhure. He owns a
large mulberry grove which he
planted and is possessed of con
siderable property in Nebraska.
He was a naturalized Amerioan
citizen.
preparations on a large scale; but
the magnitude of the national debt
the greatest in the memory of
man and the extravagance of
General Boulanger's outlay for
war material are creating grave
uneasiness among sober-minded
financiers. These rival naval na
tions are gradually exhausting
themselves in ceaseless prepara
tions for war during a period of
profound peace.
Few are aware of the enormous
special advantages enjoyed by the
Canadian Pacific railway. From
the Dominion government that
company received as gitts $35,
000,000 worth of completed rail
roads that had been built by the
government; also 25,000,000 in
money; and third, 25.000,000 acres
of good farming lands, being ex
clusive of those covered by water
or otherwise waste and, useless.
This latter is considered the most
valuable of any land grant made
to a railroad, not excepting that of
the Northern Pacific. The total
value of these bonuses .from the
government may reasonably be
estimated at nearly $100,000,000.
It is further favored with, first,
exemptions from cistoms duties
of all material used in construc
tion; second, perpetual exemption
from all species of national, pro
vincial, local and municipal taxa
tion of the railroad, its equipment
and appurtenances, and of the cap
ital stock of the company; third,
twenty years' exemption from all
species of taxation of its granted
lands; fourth, a monopoly for the
period of twenty year of all the
railway business within that part
of the Dominion lying westward of
Lake Huron. Its financial condi
tion is most excellent, having a
railway system embracing soon1
4,500 miles, bearing a total fixed
charge of only $3,300,000 a year.
Dividends at the rate ot o per
cent, per annum upon its capital
stock of 60.000,000 are guarnteed
for the ppriod of ten ears from
July 1, 1883. To meet this guar
anty the company have now on
hand the sum of $12,000,000, snf
ficient to cover about six years'
dividends. Of its land grant it
still has 17,000,000 acres unsold.
Its preparations for business in
clude connections and agencies in
all the great American trade cen
ters. It has arranged to tap the
American business at all central
points. American roads, in un
dertaking to -contend with this
foreign rival, will have to cope
with a most formidable competitor.

France has expended during the

Germany during the same period
