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
The art of ship building has not been

the state, and will no doubt do excel

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.

SDCCtfulIy. LAURITZ NISSEN,
A Few Hints Concerning the People and
Climate of That Country.
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
