Sftc gmUj Jovian. ASTORIA. OKEGON: SUNDAY. JAXUAllY 22, 1SSS "Wood is 523 a cord and coal is S25 a ton at Los Angeles. The latest thing in "trusts' in the east is the formation of a "lard trnst'' in New York. It includes fivo of the seven lard manufacturers in that city. Smail-pox h still epidemic ia San Francaseo and Oakland, ana Has ex tended eastward along the lines of travel as far as Nevada, where the dis cas3 is new reported to exist at Car son. In the precious metab Eussia comes first as to gold, with S51.217, G00;thc United States second, with 330,500,000; Australia third, with S21, 003,033. Ia silver the United States lead?, S53,S03,030;3rexico second, S2G 000,000; Russia third, 820,420,000, Slaveholder in Brazil are saying that it will bo impossible to carry on coffee-planting on a large scale, when slavery is abolished in the Sonth Amer ican empire. Let them look at the South's experience with cotton before and after the war and be comforted. The telegraph lino went down nt noon yesterday and Tnn Astoeian is this morning without its usual specials. We have supplied the de ficiency as far as possible by giving our readew delayed telegrams of in terest received yesterday from Sau Francisco. 51. Godix, founder of tho Familis lere at Guise, France, is dead. He was married eighteen months ago to Mile. Merto, his indefatigable fellow worker and philanthropist. He leaves the great labor problem behind him. If the Familistero lives without him the problem will have been solved. The three ocean steamers plying be tween here and San Francisco are at present in the river, by reason of an effort to continue an ocean terminus at an inland station. To and from here by c-cr. the steamers experience no moro difficulty in January than in July, but of course in winter the inte rior is occasionally frozen up to an extent that precludes possibility of water travel. General Cresset:, prefect of St Petersburg, on tho night of January 12th ordered that numerous houses in the city bo searched. Tho result was the arrest of SS7 persons. One house wag set on fire by the occupants and several nihilist printing machines and a large number of revolutionary pam phlets wore burned. Tho occupants themselves were unable to escape and were arrested. Foreigners aro getting particular about how and what they buy nov,. They are economizing on their bread, but they want almost as much light as usual from our great republic. Tho total exports of breadstuff's tor November were valued at S9,503,703, against S12,59S,811 same month a year ajo. The total exports of illuminat ing oils for November wero 07,325,808 gallons, against 33,589,320, gallons same month last vcar. The ignorance of Sau Franciscans and steamship officials there regard ing the freezing up of tho Willamette and Columbia and tho consequent de tention of steamers cast of here, ap pears to bo evidence that tho Portland correspondents of San Francisco jour nals are not so spry as is their usual wont It is to be hoped that during Portland's present painful position theso aro no flies upon tho aforesaid correspondents. Tun orratic l,war cload," which lias successively shaded Afghanistan, Bul garia, Alsace and Poland, has now suddenly shifted to Italj. The Flor entine authorities wish to make use or some papers which aro in tho care of tho French consul; the consul re fuses Jo permit them to bo touched, and the French government warns Italy that unless tho proceedings ba abandoned "with an apology there will ho consequences too shocking for contemplation. "Whether war will spring from this incident or not it is impossible to say, but this much is certain that when war does come it will come from just such a trivial pro vocation a3 this. Tho peace of Eu ropo is hung on a hair-trigger, and nobody can tell nt what moment somo unimportant accident may set it off. Of Jleiical Interest. "Can I ask iust one more Question. pa, it it ain't foolish?" inquired Bob- uy, wuo uau been badgering tho old man all the ovening. "Ya'as. va'as." "Why is it, pa, that the moro a little boy's nose is stopped up the moro he talks through it?" That proved tho final question of the evening. Every mother is iiitrrrstert in know ing that a special preparation for chil- .ireii, cancu - i ne umid's touch Hvrun is now for sale only at Dcment's drug store. OCn COXGKESSIOX1L DELEGITIOX.

Gkeen, Dear sir: I am fre quently troubled with severe colds, and the only remedy that will relieve me of them is jour Jsoschees uennan Siirun. I have used it for more than 12 years. It is a constant household companion with me. Our merchant hero procured it first at mv solicita tion, and says he has sold a great many bottles. It ii a very popular remedy in this section, iwery per son who has used it speaks in the highest terms of its merits. I do not know of a single case it has not cured. I first used it in Vermont, where I lived before coming here. I ndvise everyone to use it, as it is cer tainly tho be3t cough medicine I have ever known. I have tried nearly all of them at different times. Yours respectfully, MOSES GRAY, Proprietor Grist Mill. Coraniunicateil. Porti.and, Nov. 2G, 1S87.

California was represented at the meoting of the Na tional Board of Trade this morning by Senator Hearst and Representative Mor row, and Oregon bv Senator" Dolph and B. Hermann of Portland. Frederick Fraley of Philadelphia presided. Mr. Fraley was re-elected and Hamilton Hill of Boston was chosen secretary. Tho Board reaffirmed its action regarding the necessity of a judicions national anti adalteration law. The question of spurious lard, submitted bj tho Chicago Board of Trade, was" discussed, and a resolution was adopted petitioning Con cress to enact a law Drovidini that pack ages containing impure or spurious lari shall be so plainly labeled' as to avoiff deception. Eesolutions favoring coast defenses and the improvement of rivers and harbors wero adopted. He Didn't Know His Strength. There is an old soldier employed ia the government office in this city, who has had some queer experiences with an artificial limb, his having been taken off at tho knee. Among the most amusing was one with a sleeping-car porter. On one train he struck an uppish sort of a porter, who stood around with a languid dignity that would make a street corner dude sick at heart. This man with tho wooden leg made up his mind that he would "wake that nigger up" before he chipped in his quarter. He told a couple of men in the car his purpose, and they joined in with him. He wears his shoe firmly fastened to tho wooden leg, having no need to remove it, and having fallen once from a loose shoe. After his berth had been made up, he went to the dressing-room ana unstrapped his leg, keeping hold of the strap, and thon got into his berth. Then he called the porter. "I've got rheumatism and can't bend over," he said, "and I wish you'd pull off that shoe." The porter untied the shoe and tried to pull it off, but it wouldn't come. "Pull hard," said the passenger. The darkey gave another pull. "Oh, brace against the berth and pull," said the passenger. The porter had blood in his eye. He put his foot against the berth and pulled like a dentist Tho passenger let go tho strap, and the darkey fell back with the shoe and the leg. "My God! you've pulled off my lee," shrieked the passenger. The porter dropped it, and with his eyes bulging out and his teeth chattering, ho broke from the car. He concealed himself in a corner of the baggage-car, and pretty soon the two other conspirators camo in, pretended they didn't know where he was, sat down on a trunk, and talked over the awful condition of the man whose leg had been pulled off, and about the penalty the darkey would have to suffer if caught. The porter was of no service to anybody that night. Milwaukeo Sentinel. Talrins Pity on the Boarders.
