The Astobiax guarantees to its adver tisers the largest circulation of any newspa per published on the Columbia river. Rough on rats. Portland appears to lack terminal facilities. The bark Elsinore sailed yesterday from San Francisco for the Columbia river. Darinz last week loaded teams cro33ed the Columbia a-3 far down ns Vancouver. The "stlinf? bloke'' at noon yester day and we are in blissful ignorance ot matters and things to the east of ns. The barkentine UalaMava Palmer master, consigned to Meyer, Wilson & Co., and due at San Fraucisco from London, has now been ont 304 days. The State arrived in at 8:30 yester day morning, bringing papers of San Francisco dates to the 19th, from which JLhe ASTOitiAN makes copious extracts this morning. Friday night's snow turned to sleet that froze as it fell and played havoc with telephone and other wires. A cold drizzle of rain through tho day made walking disagreeable. Rev. Dr. Garner will hold the regu lar service in the Presbyterian church this morning, which will be followed by the celebration of the holy com munion. There will be no service in the evening. The wind changed from the east to the west yesterday at 1 p. a., and presently with a singing, humming, and crackling, the ice began to loosen, and the snow to slip from tho roofs. If it extends in'land and holds steady, it will open the river in short order. The Walla Walla which had been taking a little trip into the interior for the benefit of the health of the crew, fonnd no better place than As toria and returned yesterday after noon. She reports the Columbia hard and fast in the ice at Walker's Island. Mr. Montgomery and two compan ions came down from Skamokawa last evening in a skiff for papers, etc., having been shut in from the receipt of news so long that they couldn't stand it. They say we ought to have a railroad down here, to which all will agree. They return with a good ash breeze to-morrow. Oysters have had a very close call, says the Journal, and no doubt many have been frozen, yet the loss will not be as great as last year. During the cold weather the tides have been neap and have not run out very far nor left the flats much exposed, hence we think that the oysters will not suffer to any great extent When Capt. Debney, of the State, got here yesterdsy he didn't know where the Oregon or the Columbia was. Which is the same is convinc ing proof that Portland has been try ing to suppress the fact that she is corked up. When the Stale left San Francisco last Thursday no one in the company's office knew anything about the whereabouts of the vessels beyond the fact that they had got to Astoria all right According to a record of the weath er kept for the past eleven years in Montesano, the average lowest tem perature in the winter was 39 degrees and in the summer the average was 67 degrees, making an average tem perature for eleven years of 53 de grees. Tho coldest day February 3, 18S1, thermometer 2 degrees; and warmest day, May 29, 1887, thermom eter 93 degrees. In eleven years there were 653 clear days, 2,159 fair days, 1,069 rainy days, and 122 snowy days. PERSONAL MENTION. In San Francisco on the 5th mst, a daughter was born to tho wife of J. Wolf, of this city. A. Chabot. president of tho Pacific Cranberry Co., died recently at his home at Oakland, California. Captain Bennett, late of the steam er Yaquina City, has been appointed to tho command of the steamer .di-A? Major William H. Heuer, of the en gineer corps, is understood to relieve Capt Albert H. Payson, in charge as inspector of the Twelfth lighthouse district of this coast. Frank Byrd, carrying the mail from Chadwell, got in on his eleven mile trip at two yesterday afternoon, and reports rongh traveling, having had to come all the way by land, the river being cnosea with ice to its mouth.

Justice Lamar reached the Capitol a little after eleven o'clock this morning and proceeded to the Justice's rooln of the supreme court, where the ordinary oatli of office was administered to him in private. The Judges in their black ilk ropes then filed into the clrunber in solemn procession at twelve o iilnek. and the as semblage, at the tap of the gavel, arose respeciiuny. ami remained standing tin til the members of the court had taken their seats. Lamar, clad in a well-fitting suit of uiacx. lollowi'il the court ami took Ins seat beside clerk McKennv. at the riirht of the bench. The Chiet Justice an nounced that the first proceedings of uie court wowa ue me reading or tne commission of Lamar and the adminis tration of the oath. The commission was thereupon handed to the clerk, who read it, atter which Lamar read impres sively, from manuscript, the judicial oath, as follews: 1, L. Q.C.Lamar, do solemnly swear that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that 1 will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform nil the duties incumbent on me as Associate Justice of the Supreme court of the United States according to the best of my ability and understand ing, agreeable to the constitution and laws of the United States, so help me God. He t-jol; the liible as he uttered the lat sentence and solemnly kissed it He was then escorted behind a screen, which extends the length of the bench behind the chairs of the Justices, and after a minute's delay reappeared at the ieic ciau in a new nowing roue 01 giosy black silk.

United States customs inspector Day, who has charge of the bonded goods on the steamer Mexico, which arrived here to-day, reports that seventeen China men left Victoria Sunday last in an open boat to go to the San Juan Is lands, whence they intended to make their way to the mainland on board some of the small up-sound steamers. Tho boat was upset and all of them were drowned. The bark Shirley sailed from the Tacoma mill to-day with 890,003 feet of lumber for Oakland, Cal. The first mail from the east or south sinco Sunday night arrived in Tacoma to-night. Tho main line of the Northern Pacific road isnowopen from St Paul to Wallnla Junction, but trains have been unable to cross the Columbia river at Pasco, and had to come to this city by way of the switchback, or to cross at Kalamn, between here and Portland, until to day. Last night a Chinook wind sprang up, and to-day has been clear and balmy. The snow and ice of the recent tail-end of the blizzard which strnck the Puget sound recently has disappeared. Some Legislative Delay. Washington, Jan. 18. Considera ble dissatisfaction is feft among the representatives of both parties in the house at the lagging manner in which public business is transacted. The new members of the house, and there are over 125 of them, came here with the idea of jumping at congressional work as hnngry trout rise to the fly, and doing marvels for their constitu ents in short order. They see the old members managing affairs in a manner altogether too leisurely to suit their tastes, and impatient rnur- murings liave been heard ever since congress assembled after the holi days. The president's message of December 5th led to the expectation that the tariff legislation would be brought sharply and quickly before the house, lint the word "tariff" has not been lisped in tho ways and means committee meetings since it was organized. Reform Club Dinner. New York, Jan. 18 Ihe Reform club will have an inaugural dinner Saturday night at the Metropolitan opera house, and it is intended that the occasion shall be used to mike a dem onstration in favor of Cleveland's tariff reduction policy. A circular has been issued setting forth the pri mary purpose of the club to be effec tive agitation in favor of tariff reform by tbo reduction or abrogation of so called protective taxes, especially of those either so discouraging lmnoits ns to yield to the government but a small revenue when compared with the enormous subsidies merely com pelled to be paid bv the people at large to a favored few among us, or so enhancing the cost to our manu focturers of their raw materials as to bar them from the markets of the world. lie Returned For, It.

Hone) to be Refunded to the States and Territories. Washington, Jan. 18. Tho senate passed a bill this afternoon in which California and Oregon, as well as other states of the Union, are interested. During the civil war a direct tax was levied upon the various states according to population. Many of the states paid this tax and, those that did not were charged with it upon the books in the treasury department All the states in rebellion were charged with their amount of the tax respectively. The amount imposed upon California was 254,533 7, which amount was paid by the state. Oregon was assessed $33,- lnn irr. which amount the Iesislature of Oreaon ordered the state treasurer to pay, but the amount was never covered into tne treasury 01 1110 unueaoiuies. Later, when an appropriation was made to reimburse Oregon for expenses in curred during the Mexican war, the treasury department deducted the amount of the direct tax from the sum allowed by congress to Oregon for the Indian war expenses. The bill which passed the senate this afternoon provides that the secretary of the treasury shall reimburse each state, territory and the District of Columbia for all money found due them under this act; provided that where the sums or anv part thereof credited to any state, territory or the District of Colum bia have been compelled by the United States from the citizens or inhabitants thereof, or any other person, either di rectly or by the sale of property, such sums shall be held in trust by such state, territory or District of Columbia for the benefit of those persons or in habitants froln whom they were col lected, or their legal representatives. All claims under the trust hereby created shall he filed with the Governor of such state or territory and the Com missioners of the District of Columbia, respectively, within six years next after tne passage 01 mis act; anu an claims not so filed shall bo forever debarred and the money attributable theretoshall belong to such state or territory or the District of Columbia respectively, as the case may he. Tiinorcn THE ICE. The Mil Fate of a SVatin? Party In Texas. Kxxis. Texas, Jan. 18. Seven persons were drowned to-day in Sand lake, about ten miles east of here. Two young women, the daughters of William Williams, a farmer, and a voting man named Babbitt, were skat ing on the lake, when the ice gave way and they sunk in four aud a half feet of water. Miss Babbit arid two little girls, aged 8 and 14 years, also daughters of Wil liam Williams, who were on the shore watching the sport, were drowned in attempting to rescue their friends. A very small small child of Mr. Wil liams also fell through the ice, but was saved by one of the drowning young ladies catching it and throwing it out on the ice. Young Williams, a brother of the young ladies drowned, was a quartet of a mile distant, saw the trouble and ran to the assistance of the unfortunates, but was soon overpowered by those who were drowning, and he, too. was drowned. Mrs. WilKams. his mother, made an effort to save them, but she was pulled down, and would have met the late of her children but for the timely aid of her two daughters, aged 10 and 12 years. These children threw her a rope and succeeded in pulling her ashore. , Does It Pay? Three-fourths of our people are troubled with Dyspepsia and liver Complaint in somo form or other, which by nature of the disease has a depressing influence on the mind or body, preventing them from thinking or acting clearly in any matter of im portance. Indigestion, coming up of food after eating, dyspepsia, sick head-ache, acidity of the stomach or any derangement of the stomach 01 liver (upon which the whole action of our system depends) are speedily aud effectually overcome by the use of Green's August Flower. The most stubborn cases have yielded to its in fluence, as thousands of letters re ceived will testify. Tho immense sale of this medicine is another guarantee of its merits, (over a million and a nan Dottles sold last year.) Bo we ask, will it pay you to suffer from any of the above diseases' when yon can have immediate relief in the August flower. Tnree doses will prove its worth. It is sold by all druggists and general dealers in all parts of- the world. The Immigration Outlook. New Youk, Jan. 18. It is consid ered probable here that the war prep, arations in Europe will cause a large immigration to this country this year, and it is reported that Germany will send over more immigrants than ever before, if they can find means to get away. The journals in the agri cultural districts of Germany and Austria print disparaging accounts of tho condition of affairs in this country in an organized attempt to discourage tue people from emigrat ing.

J.J.Potter, vice-president of the Southern Pacific road, wishes it to be understood that he -has not resigned, has no intention of resigning and is not in feeble neaitn. General passenger agent Goodman, of the Southern Pacific savs that about 1,700 excursionists have arrived in southern California during the past three or four days. General superintendent Fillmore, of the Southern Pacific, is credited with the statement that there are 1,500 loaded freight cars on the way from Ogden that are being moved very slowly, both on account of the extreme cold weather and the lack of motivo nower. The Pacific Mail Steamship com pany has issued a new freight tariff, which advances its rates about twen-ty-percen,t- The tariff, however, i3 about twenty-five percent lower than by the all rail lines to New York. This is due to the new Transconti nental association. The Atlantic and Pacific road has been cleared of its snow blackade west of Albuquerque, and the trains are now rnnning on regalar -time. The sale of tickets via Barstow and Mohave has, in consequence, been re sumed. During the three or four days of the blockade the company was compelled to turn over to the Southern Pacific company at El Paso and Deming over one thousand west bound passengers. . Results of Discrimination. Ottawa, Jan. 18. Telegrams from all parts of the Canadian northwest report that wheat is permanently down 10 cents a bushel below the prevailing prices in markets on the American side. The loss is having a serious effect on the Canadian North west and is due almost entirely to the refusal of the dominion authori ties to allow re-entry certificates for wheat sent over American roads to Canadian and eastern points. The restriction of shipments has had the effect of confining the farmers prac tically to tne nome markets. The ruling of the department ricorously shuts off from Canadian territory all cars sent over the rails laid down to connect with the Northern Pacific. Snlllran and Kilraln Accept Dails' Challenge London, Jan. 18. Jake Kilrain and Jem Smith have replied to the sweep ing challenge of Jack Davis to meet Kilrain, Sullivan, Smith or Jack Ash- ton, in a ring, for 500 a side. Each signifies his willingness to accommo date the challenger. Kilrain offers a wager of 1U0 that he will knock Da vis out in six rounds. Kilrain ac cepted Davis' challenge on the fol lowing terms: Hilram wagers 100 he knocks the Englishman out inside of six rounds, Marquis of Queensberry rnies, any time within a month from to-day. He further agrees to fight him two weeks later, under new prize ring rnle3, for 500 to 1,000 aside. The Sorthern Pacific. New York, Jan. 18. At a meeting or the Northern Pacific directors next Thursday the subject of the joint lease of the Oregon Railway and Nav igation company with tho Union Pa cific will be discussed. The Villard party is said not to be over-confident of a final settlement immediately. ProposeJ Forfeiture of the C & O. Gnat. Washington, Jan. 18. Holman, of Indiana, yesterday said that he pro posed to introduce a bill at once to forfeit the land grant upon the re cently completed line of the CaHfoij nia and Oregonroad.
