Twenty tickets for fifty cents is the result of steamboat competition be tween Portland and Albina. The R. R. Thompson brought down 4,700 sacks of flour for the Itraemer yesterday morning. A seizure of 160 fivo-tael cans of opium was made in Portland last Tuesday, at a Chinese launday of that city. The new cable is expected this week. It will be loaded on to a scow at Portland, brought down here, and immediately put in placo. The Clatsop Koad & Construction company has levied a 85 assessment. The intention is to go right ahead with the work. That's business. Regular meeting of uniform rank, a., ol r., mis evening, Uasinesa of importance. Every member is re quested to bo present. J. N.

The Astoria Gaslight Co., is push ing work on its new buildiugs and plant. Nearly all the reauisite ma terial is on the ground; the putting in of the new holder is next in order. H.JLuch had an examination be fore jnstice May yesterday afternoon for larceny of a boat and net from C. Leinenweber. He was bound over to appear before the grand jury in the sum of S250. "Behind The Scenes, or, What I know about Blackmail;" is now run ning to a full house in Portland. It will be followed by "The Journalist's Revenge; or, The Loathsome Con temporary f' with all the scenic effects and accessories. Several estimates are made of the spring pack on the river for the sea son that closed yesterday, the esti mates differing somewhat in the ag gregate. Some claim that the entire pack will not vary much from the ag gregate of last season, when about 355,000 cases were put up. A basis of operations in Coos bay fall salmon packing has been agreed upon. The Gen. Miles will leave here next Wednesday carrying a com plete outfit of men and material for the Coos bay packing company, the English Flag packing company, and the Mt. Hood packing company. The river and harbor bill having become a law without the prcsideut's signature, ten days having elapsed since its passage by tuo senate, the appropriations, it is believed, will be come almost immediately available. This will make it possiable to -extend thelimifof operations at tho Fort Stevens jetty. The Electric has been engaged, for tho picnic oxenrsion to be given by the ladies of tho Congregational church to-morrow, and tho boat will leave Wilson & Fisher's dock for Bear creek at 10 a. si. Ice cream, lemonade, coffee, cake and sandwiches will be served. Fare, fifty cents round trip. Children under twelve half. The Astouian doesn't go n cent on the propositions of St. Paul and Chicago newspapers to publish a "write up" of this or any other place for so much or so little a column. ThA nrnnnqitinn sounds fair enOUzll. but the advertising matter is always rnn on the 22nd page of a 24 page Saturday mammoth edition, in Bup nloment fnrm. nnd is rarelv looked at by the most casual reader, being readily recognized as paia matter. Mrs. Dr. Murray, who figures prominently in Portland at present, was a resident of White Pine, Ne vada, many years ago, where she will be remembered by a good many old Ne vadans as the wife of Harvey Carpen ter. She got a divorce from Carpen ter in Salt Lake and married Murray, a subsequent divorce leaving her free to marry" L. Blumaer of Portland. She is a clever woman and ha3 dis played a good deal of nerve during the last week. M. Weiss, of Beaumont, Texas, was in the office yesterday. He repre sents a Texas lumber company that ships railroad material to Denver, Colorado at a 35 cent rate, and finds Astoria lumber there in competition. He expressed surprise at the figures given bim, as to the yield of timber tracts in this vicinity, and was fur nished with pamphlets and printed matter containing facts and figures that ho says trill open the eyes of the Texans when they read them. The Pacific Pine Lumber company. otjaan Francisco, lias reduced its prices for lumber an average of 32.50 per thousand feet, commencing to day. The reduction covers all lines of pine, fir and spruco lumber apuiimoer, ana is followed also by a similar reduction in redwood. The reasons given are that the demand from southern California is on the decrease; also that the price of logs at the mill has come down, and the necessity for fewer vessels has re duced charters. Chief of police Parrish of Portland, and chief of police Barry of this city, are having a sort of a game of foot ball at present, the ball being the vags that infest all rivers and coast towns. The Portland man fires them down this way and Barry fires them back again. He has a persuading way about him, and those who don't accept a polite invitation to absquatulate, have subsequent reason to regret their re fusal. It helps to make bnsiness lively for the river boats, some of the do nothing brigade spending some, of their wealth in riding up and down between Portland and this city. The press speaks well of Mclntyre & Heath's minstrels every where they have appeared. Talking of the per formance in Denver, the Republican says: "The walls, the passage ways, the windows, were lined and filled with people standing. In the gallery the crush was quito as great. Peo ple were packed there thick as sar dines in a box. As to the perform ance it was the hnest minstrel one we have ever seen. There was nothincr commonplace about it. The whole programme was rendered with a spar klo of humor, a brilliancy of repartee and a rollicking fun, which we have not as yet seen equaled by any other minstrel troupe. The mo3t chronic dyspeptic, if yet possessed of suffi cient strengtu to laugh, would be cured by a single attendance at such a care-killing exhibition of brilliant fun as that of last night." Reserved seats at New York Novelty Store. PERSONAL MENTION. P. B. Johnson, editor and proprie tor of tho Walla Walla Daily Union, is in tho city. A Wamins. The modes of death's approach are various, and statistics show conclu sively that more persons die from dis eases of Mie Throat and Lungs than any other. It i3 probablo that every one, without exception, receives vast numbers of Tuberolo Germs into the system and where these germs fall upon suitable soil they start into life and develop, at first slowly and is shown by a slight tickling sensation in the throat and it allowed to con tinue their ravages they extend to the lungs producing Consumption and to tho head, cansing Catarrh. Now all this is dangerous and if allowed to proceed will in time cause death. At the onset you must act with prompt ness; allowing a cold to go without your attention is dangerous and may lose you your life. As soon as you feel that something is wrong with your Throat, Lungs or Nostrils, ob tain a bottle of Boschee's German Syrnp. It will give you immediate relief. In The Police Court. In tho polioe court yesterday, L. Melen, L. Mitchell and L. Brown forfeited 810 apiece for vagrancy; Clarence Young forfeited 820 on a similar charge. Capt. Phil. Johnson plead guilty to a charge of interfering with the pound master, and was fined 85. In Capt. Johnson's case there are oxtenuating circumstances. James Gardiner had rounded up a band of fourteen cows that he was going to impound nnder the recently passed ordinance, and Capt. Johnson's cow being among them; he drove it home. Ho stated that having never seen the ordinance he didn't know its n re vision?, and what he did was in want of. knowing what it required. Judge Jowett, taking this into con sideration, placed tho fino low. but stated that any further interference with the pound-master in the per formance of his duties would, upon conviction, bo more severely dealt with. It might be a good idea to publish the ordinance and thus give people a chance to know what they have to comply with. Is Consumption Incurable. Read the follewing: Mr. C. II. Morris, Newark, Ark., says: "Was down with Abscess of Lungs, and friends and phy sieians pronounced me an Incurable Consumptive. Began takingDr. King's New Discovery for Consumption, am now on my third bottle, and able to oversee the work on my farm. It Is the finest medicine eer made."

To the Editor of The Oregenian: In the Sunday issue of the Oregon ian I read an extract from tho letter of manager Holcomb, of tho O. B. & N. Co., to the "businesss men of Wes ton" in which ho declares that having purchased two steam tugs, etc., they proposed to see to it that wheat goes as cheaply to the ocean via the Co lumbia as by Paget sound. Inquiring among the ship brokers this morning I find that ships are yet opeu for charter at 2s. 6d., per ton cheaper from Tacoma than from Port land. The reason given for it is that the charges are greater against the ship from Portland. Wouldn't it therefore be better for Mr. Holcomb to impress ship owners with his good intentions rather than the farmers of Umatilla county? When we can oharter as cheaply from Portland as from Tacoma it will be significant that ship owners have been apprised of tho proposition stated by manager Holcomb, and not before. C. P. O. Some Quick Passages. The American ship Henry It. Hyde arrived at New York yesterdoy, eighty eight day from the Golden Gate. A very good passage, "though not to be compared with some made by Ameri can clippers in the early 'fifties. The year 1853 was notable for quick east ward trips. The Trade Wind made it in seventy-five days and the Contest in seventy-nine. In 1857 the Flying Dutchman got inside of Sandy Hook in eighty days, but was wrecked be fore completing tho voyage. In 1870, the Young America scored in eighty days and twenty hours. From New York to San Francisco the passage of tne Jriytng uioua in lool, stands un rivaled eighty-nine days. The Swordfish came near beating it in 18KJ, getting inside the Farallones in eighty-seven days, but the weather prevented making, port. The Flying Cloud added only nineteen honrs ia 1854 to her performance of three years before. The quicker time on eastward trips is due to the strong westerly winds which prevail in the Sonth ocean. Now-a-days steam is the chief dependence for speed, and the day of the extreme clipper is past. Modern sailing ships are large carriers, while obtaining a good deal of the clipper speed, as shown by the quick pass ages frequently made. IS. F. Bui. letin, 2o. Electric Bitters.

Ml PREPARED WATERMELON. How to Add Flavor to The Popular . Fruit. Now that the watermelon season is on in its full glory, and the story that a strike had stopped the impor tation has turned out untrue, a word may be in season as to how to pre pare a melon for eating. There are many ways ot eating the splendid fruit, and tho recipes generally given aro long and intricate. There is one method so easy that almost any one may follow it. Get a good melon, and if you can't tell for yourself by that intuition which is the best guide in such matters, then trust to your green goods grocer's'jndgement. Have the melon put on ice over night, and in -tho morning see that its surface is wiped dry. Then out a elit with a long knifo straight from one side into the very heart of the melon. Lot the slit be an inch and a half wide. Cut three other slits so that you can lift out the plug thus made. Pour into tho holo somo good claret Let it spread through the red spongy fruit, and pour some more wino iu until you have suc ceeded iu getting. iu at least a pint of the grape juice. The plug up the melon and put it backiu the refriger ator. After an hour or so you can put in tho rest of a quart of claret. The melon will drink up the wine and every part of the sponge will be come saturated if from' honr to hour tho position of the big egg-shaped fruit be changed from sido to side and from end to end. Tho wino should bo put in from six to eight honrs before dinner time. An hour or an hour and a half before dinner take out tho plug and taste the fruit. You wilt find it surprisingly delicious. and yet perhaps the flavor will bo not ?uite so pronounced as you like it. n this event pour in from half a pint to a wnoie pint ot brandy, bee thftt that the melon is closely plugged and wrapped up, and .have it turned at least twice andxept on tho ico for the next hour. It will then be ready for serving. Sometimes it is pleasant to sur prise guests with a plugged melon. Say nothing about wine having been put in tne fruit, and when it is brought on the table take care that if in the cutting any extra mice comes from the fruit that 'somo of it shall go with each piece of melon. There is an odd little Italian restaurant in a place in this city where its existence would never be suspected, whero one night not long ago a plugged water melon was served. No ono except one ot tne diners Know about it. When it was brought on and the party began tasting what ap pearcd to be an ordinary watermelon, there was instantly noticed a change in the demeanor of every one. They sniffed in the air and looked at each other, and then sniffed again. There was no suspicion then that the water melon was of more than ordinary kind. But after two or three mouthf ulssomo one remarked the peculiarly rich taste and tho exquisite aroma, and then tho secret was out. There woren't many people in tue party, and tne melon was a fairly big one, but it was nil oaten, every bit of it. Notwithstanding tho splendid offer ing to tho palate that plugged water melon makes, it is remarkable that not many people have eaten it, and that you can't get it readily at the hotels "and restaurants. Once in n while somo chef puts forth water melon fritters or freezes the fruit, but oven if theso forms wero not costly aud difficult to obtain they would soon tire tho appetite. With water melon soaked iu wine it is different. If you like tho fruit in its plain state, you will probably like it better with claret or brandy, and if you like to eat lots, of it plain you will want still more of it 'plugged." New York Sun.
