For Washington and Oregon: Fair weather; slight tem perature changes. The loud and long expenditure of gun powder at Rio Janeiro, and the Bmall show of casualty lists, has caused the Brailllan war to be regarded with a spirit of levity; but the amount of Kill ing and wounding going on has recent ly become highly respectable. General satisfaction Is expressed nt tho result of the appeal In the Hansen murder case. Apart from the fact of Hansen's ullt of a crime seldom paral leled in atrocity, and without a single circumstance which could be urged In mitigation, the county will be saved a considerable sum. The condemned man had a fair and Impartial trial and was ably defended, and It Is but simply Jus tic that his life should be forfeited. Robert Fulford, husband of the late Annie Plxley, objects to the remarks of certain relatives of his wife regarding his treatment of the late Miss Plxley, and also to a New York newspaper, which playfully Intimated thab he had poisoned the popular actress for the sake of her wealth. Being a matter-of-fact-tort of man. with old-fashioned no tions about things, he falls to grasp the Bubtle wit of the remarks of the spor tive rtrrter, and talks about holding somebody responsible. The art of ship building has not been lost la this country by any means. The old Pine Tree state, where so many gal lant n.ercbantnien have been launched In years rone by. Is keeping up Its repu tation. The first steel sailing ship ever built In New England iu launched at Path a few day ago. od4 the event has crvfltevl much Interest. She ha been named the Dlrlgo, ater the motto of the state, and will no doubt do excel lent serrlc.

I TIIE DAILY the oil has hardly gone beyond the people-Of the torpor towns, and 77,000,000 gallons give an average consumption of less than a quarter of a gallon per head of the population annually; but, as far as It has gone, the efteclsUre excellent, and In a few years the trade Is expected to Increase tenfold, especially If the ex periment of importing and transporting the oil In bulk should succeed. Speculation continues In the state press as to the particular honor which will be conferred upon Hon. C. W. Ful ton at) the coming election. The St. Helen's Mist says: "The mention of Hon. C. W. Fulton's name for guberna torial honors is not out of place. Mr. Fulton has served earnestly and effi ciently In the office he waB elected to, and proved himself equal to any office his supporters might see lib to elect him to fill." This Is from the Fossil Journal: "If the 'man at Astoria,' Hon. C, W. Fulton, wants It (congveHnional nomina tion for tho second district) he will very likely get It and be easily elected." The Journal may still claim to be conserva tlve In its utterances. Mr. Fulton will not alone be easily elected, If nomln ated, but he will be given a handsome majority to boot. The natives of Samoa are perturbed because they are to give up their arms. They consider fighting part of their na- tur and have their pride touched by being deprived of tho weapons which evince their possession 3f prowess. As the cliques Into which they are divided under the chiefs are perpetually at strife and pklllng" for supremacy, the powers are acting prudently In Insisting upon disarmament. If they net firmly they will succeed In breaking down the na tive love of the Bpear and skull-crack ing club. Yet it Is not at all likely that the virtues of peace, however sedu loudly cultivated, will Inure to the pres crvatlon of the race. War decimates a people, yet leaves the survivors vigor ous and energetic, and It Is well known that contact with whites and the acqui sition of a veneer of civilization tend to the extermination of savage races. The Samoans are good stock and Intelligent within their province, but very likely they will disappear as the Hawallans are doing and os the Tasmanlans have done. It was found Impossible by any measures of kind treatment to preserve the last remnant of the Tasmanlans. Conflicting reports come from Wash ington as to the shape In which the Wilson bill" will be passed by the sen ate whether the changes will be few and unimportant, or many and radical, Tho fact furnishes a fiesh Illustration of the confusion of the democratic mind on all business questions those relating tu tho tariff most of all. Business men aro urgent that whatever the senate means to do should be done speedily for tilings cannot well be worse than yiey are, and any removal of an uncer tainty would be an advantage. The democrats all regard the legislation by this congress as only one Btep of a movement that they ore pleased to style a reform. There will be nothing settled, therefore, until the democratic party It beaten out of power. However, the dem ocracy will not be able to do much after they get through with the labor they have on hand, and their threats of fur ther ripping proceedings will only In crease the Republican majority In the next house. It Is a clear case already that there will be a republican veto on Mr. Cleveland In the second congress of his second and last term. Therefore the period during which the power of the democracy in tho country I com plete will expire a year from next March, and practically the capacity for tho higher forms of mischief will end with the session of congress now In progress. The reason for this Is that It I only during the long session of a congress that very bitterly contested measures can be carried.

The following will explain itself: Astoria, Feb. 20, 1894. Editor Astorlan: A few days ago I saw a notice in the Astorlan of the In tended departure of several people for the gold fields of Johannesburg, and having visited that part of the world, offer a few brief hints which may be of value to Americans going there: Because the English and Dutch there consume a great quantity of brandy, beer and wine, It Is no reason why any young American who knows better should follow their example. The say ing, "In Rome," etc., does not of neces sity apply to this part of a colonial edu cation. Don't burden yourself with a lot of unnecessary clothing. Let what you take be good and suitable to the cli mate, which resembles to a great de gree southern California. The hard labor will to a great extent be performed by Cafflrs, who will be willing to work for one or two shillings per day and food, which in all prob ability will consiBt of meat, bread und "Cape Smoke," 1. e., brandy. The languages spoken are English and Dutch. In the west It is almost Impera tive that one should acquire a conversa tional knowledge of Capt Dutch. In the east it Is not so necessary. In every-day conversation with the Dutch, talk sheep to the sheep fanner, corn, barley and oats to the man en gaged in general farming, and so on, and don't, If you value your peace of mind, try and mane him believe you are Mr. Edison far better sit like a clam and say nothing. Should you at any time be a guest at a Dutch social gathering anywhere out side of the towns, and providing you have a talent for producing music lrorn the mouth-organ or concertina, blow out or pull out a quick Jerky noUe, keep ing time by stamping your ftet on the Hour, und ou will rise to a hlgn so cial eiexailon, remarkable and everlasting-.

Not even a tune on tue mouth organ could tix this matter. l"roviUlng It so haptens that our voy ageurs to the Cape of Good iiope hnd themselves confronted with the condi tions as dealt with In this note, Uie beauty and truth of these hints will duwn upon their minds with convincing L'nlted States Receiver to Tom As these few remarks might be con sidered sarcastic, I will conclude by palng a Just tribute to the Dutch of oouui Africa, viz.: No beaver, nioie in viubwioua, or mure vinuuua j-eoj.e ex ist.
