Robb & Parker sold 32 lots, Powell's addition, in bond to various parties on Thursday. Where are all our social parties? The young people should be moving in this line. At half past twelve yesterday morn ing, rain fell in this city from an un clouded skv. The present year -will see more than S2o0.000 expended in improvements and building in Astoria. If any one hears of a chinook -wandering around anywhere, he will please kindly direct it this way. On account of the sickness of Iter. G. C. Hall, Dr. Garner -will preach in the Congregational church to-morrow evening. The resumption of the night boat on the Portland route increases the travel between the two cities one hun dred per cent In the police court yesterday, Chas. McPherson, forfeited S10 on a charge of fighting, and Jno. Baldwin S2 on a charge of d. d. As a result of a little fracas Mike Sullivan had his leg broken early Friday morning at Hill's. He is now in the hospital. A person noticing the now offices being fixedup on the different streets cannot help being impressed that bus iness is increasing. As la grippe decreases, so will at tendance at the public schools in crease. The numbers will soon reach their normal state. No letters were distributed yester day from the California mail. They came in through pouches and go to Portland, from whence they will be distributed. Recorder W. B. Ross, of Seaside lodge. No. 12, A. O. V. W., of this city, paid Mrs. W. W. Belcher 32,000 last evening, a sum of money that comes very handv. Two men were around yesterday trying to sell their checks from the railroad. That is unnecessary, for there is no danger but that the" pay ment of all dues will be made. The real estate market has been a little dull, but with the departure of snow, slush and la grippe, we may look for a rapid movement Many men are iu town wishing to invest If our snow were going to remain, it wouldn't be a bad idea for some of our young people to organize a coast ing party. It is as enjoyable as and more exhilarating than telling fort unes. Astoria, with her plank business streets, has one advantage over most towns. The slush of melting snow has no mud under it, in which the dis gusted pedestrian can lose his rubbers or swamp his boots. If auyuoe wishes to see a skilful tasty piece of drawing, he should take a glance at the book containing all of the various plats, prepared by Mr. Stengle at tbe county clerk's office. It represents a great deal of work well done. Justico of the peace May, had a lively office for a while yesterday af ternoon. It was a grand gathering of paganism. Two Chinamen arrested for misdemeanors of various kinds, were tried and discharged for insuffi cient evidence. From the sunrise forests of Maine to the sandy slopes of South Carolina; from the wave washed shores of Loui siana to the sunset slopes of the Sierras, is heralded the fact that "As toria is to have a $100,000 hotel." It's a good big adv't for the place. The Y. M. C. A. held a debate Thursday evening. They discussed, with the eloquence and force incident to such occasions, "Protection versus Free Trade." Protective was advo cated by Messrs Schuble and Hilder brand. Free Trade was upheld by Messrs Frickie and Sickler. Seaside Lodge No. 12, A. O. TJ. W., the banner lodge of this jurisdiction, has 297 members. Industry, of Port land, is a good second, but Seaside carries the broom. Next July our home lodge expects. to have the larg est representation four delegates, of any lodge in the jurisdiction. Though we have- had considerable sickness in this city recently, wo are no worse off than many other towns. From all points come reports of weary doctors and lively druggests. Most of our sickness comes from carelessness, because there isn't a healthier place naturally in Oregon than Astoria. One of Astoria's loveliest daughters was passing along Third btreet The stranger en route to San Fracnisco was taking a stroll up town from the State. The reporter overheard this remark: uTo tell the truth, I didn't suppose such a subdued town as this looks from the boat could produce so attractive a girl. "Well, Astoria can equal Portland in one respect" Separate proposals will be received at the Washington, D. C, office of the lighthouse board, until the 11th of February, for furnishing the materials and labor of all kinds necessary to construct one first-class composite light-ship, to be delivered at Astoria. Plans, specifications, forms of pro posal, and other information maybe obtained on application to that office. Chief Barry is in receipt of an invi tation to attend a meeting of all the dUeCa of police and marshals of Ore coa and Washington at Taoomaon the 5th o-f February, 1800. A grand ball will be given on the occasion and probably considerable enjoyment as well as considerable business will bo accomplished. "While there Barry can have a little social chat with chief Rainey, of the'fire department A one-legged chap went stumping around town yesterday selling pencils. Last night as the 1L Ji. Thompson was leaving he was assisted onto tbe dock by two kind hearted men. He was as drunk as they make 'em, and when he got as far as the dock said, "Let go now, Pm aboard." A few moments after he wanted to have some one tell him why he was alive, but no one could answer the poor fellow. The following are the passengers up by the .ft. JR. Thompson last night: W. J.

CONTRACTOR Has Not Quit, But Is Going Rlslit Ahead. "That evening paper has made sun dry false assertions about mo," said contractor W. H. Parker yesterday afternoon, "which I would like to have opportunity to deny. "In the first place I have uot re signed, I am going right ahead, and have 4J0 white men and 70 Chinese at work in the vicinity of Sackelt's mill, and have had a force at work all the time. "It also speaks of my feeding men on beans, bread and coffee, with an oc casional piece of bacon. 1 feed my men welL They get plenty good food. I buy six quarters of beef from Thomp son & Ross every day." "I don't see why such lies are pub lished, and am of the opinion that they greatly injure the prospects of the road." Mr. Parker says that from Sackett's mill the work goes right ahead across the forks of Lewis and Clarke's, and then striking the main stream goes on to tbe southeast THE STDRGEON INDUSTRY. A Business That is Almost ns Profitable as Salmon Catching. Yesterday the Examiner's reporter was at the Alder street wharf when the Telephone from Astoria came in. Capt Scott hailed us and wanted to know if we wanted a mes3 of fish. Now, if there is one thing we like bet ter than another it is fish, and visions of the tootlisoine smelt ilitted through our mmd as wo boarded the steamer and went aft in tbe freight room. "There," says the jovial captain, "help yourself," pointing to a pilo of stur geon that contained 411 of these great backboneless fish. These fish were captured at Skmokawa by two men, between the hours of Saturday night and Monday .noon, and were valued at something like S450. In weight, there was twenty-two tons and a half, and will net the men something like 200 apiece. They were taken to tbe cold storage warerooms to be frozen a very small task just now and will bo shipped to New York and Chicago.
