Till noon auditor and police judge Jewett will receive bids for raisiug No. One's engine bouse to tin; established grade. Here is a good chance to find out where''the estab- lished grade'' is. Governor Ross, formerly of Kansas, and one of theUnited States senators who stoodbyAudrewJohnson in the impeachment proceedings, is now em- ployed as a printer inthe officeof the Santa Fe New Mexican.

Aud now it is said thatBebring sea, besides being filled witb seals, abounds with all sorts of fish, the mostimportant of which is the genu-- me mackerel, of tbe same quality that isfound in the Bay of Fundy and on the eastern coast If this be true, mackerel fishing in the north will be amostimportant industry. Thesteamer Undine came down on an excursion of the 1st Reg't, O.N. G., bandyesterday, bringing a very slim crowd. J. J. Hauser engineered tbe excursion and is out about S150 on the day, though be can stand it, as be madeabout $200 on tbe Multnomah's excursion on the Fourth. Yesterday wasn't a good day for excursions, anyhow, there being five boats from Portland. On the county clerk's desk, amid dry documents and legal rolls, liesa dainty whito kid glove. White kid gloves speak of orange blossoms, brides, aud tbeetcetras, and seem out of place among warrauty deed's and mortgages. Inquiry elicited the fact that oue day last week ayoung gen- tleman camein to get apermitto com- mit matrimony and in tbe hurry and excitement incident to tbe occasion forgot biswliitekid glove. Capt Bell, of the steamer .4. B. Field, who arrived from Tillamook Thursday, reports that a Columbia river fishing net marked J. 0.

Mr. Jackson, who has charge of the party of surveyors and civil engineers who arelayingout, and platting the new building property at Smith's Point, desires toobject to tbe custom of indiscriminate shooting. Three times last week his books and field notes were perforated with shot, and twice the hats of his men were plugged full ofholes by shot, thebats beingontbe beads of the men at the time. Thesemenhave'nt their lives insured, and respectfully ask that par- ties going out to Smith's Point to shootwill please not shoot towards where they are. Otherwise they may take a band themselves, and accident-l- y plug two or threeshootists so tbat a doctor would make good day wages pickingtbe shot out of them. THE KOUTK OF THE KlnD. A Pleasing Bit ofhens Fur Autorians. R. A. Habersham returned to the cityyesterday and went to Portland last evening. He has been, with his two parties of surveyors, making apreliminary ob- servation of tbe best route for the rail- road from the Willamette valley to Astoria, andwent as far as tbesummit.

As Reported in the Portland Telegram. "Yes," said Mr. Dorsey, "we had a glorioustime. I never enjoyed my- self better than while going down on tbesteamer Pot Pot oh, yes, Pot- ter. Lots of pretty girls went down with us, and sir, do you know I think you have some of the prettiest women in the whole, wide world. We reached Astoria about three o'clock yesterday afternoon, and our recep- tion there was most flattering. Al- mostimmediatelyupon reaching the city, we were takenaboard the United States government tug Geo. H. Men-dal-l, down to Fort Stevens. A mag- nificentspot is that! We then took the tramway, a delightful ride, and reachedtheend of the bigjetty which isnow being built We were taken up, one by one, just as if we were big blocks of stone,and lifted high in the air, andswung out by tbe huge con- struction derrick. Doyou know that while I was out at the end of the tramway I felt nearer to China than ever before? "Not only myself, but the whole party, every mother's son of us, was completely surprised at what we saw, and thewords of Congressman Binger Hermann were to us a revelation. While we were out on the jetty, the congressman told us that if the next two congresses would only make as generous appropriations as tbe last congress djij, the jetty and all other improvements alongthe river and at the mouth of it would be completed, and tbe expense would be done witb forever. I have heard a great deal about coastimprovements for Qrogou, but all tbe speeches that have over been uttered on the subject neverbad a semblance-o- f the effect upon me that Mr. Hermanu's short recital, and a view of thesituation, produced yes- terday. I said tothe party: ' 'Gentlemen, this work of improve- ment must not be allowed to stop for the want ofmoney. I nm in favor of working for such an appropriation as will complete the wfiolp tiling, mul make quick work of it. Vote the money in a lump.' Every member of our party who has a voice in congress concurred witb me. I will tell you what my formerimpressions were re- garding this matter. During my service in congress, I induced myself to believe, alongwith scores of others, that the present generation would never live to see the work completed. We actually thought that it was such a stupendous operation that twenty years' time would be required, to fin- ishit, Now I know that two or three years at tbe farthest will find every- thing done and everybody satisfied. "Yourdelegation in congress, con- sisting of senators MitchellandDolph and congressman Hermann, cannot be discounted for bard work. They haveearned a reputation for being energetic, andhavedonemorefor Or- egon thanany of their fellow congress- men ever believed anyone could do. No one but those who were present all the time knows what ahard pull they have had, to get the appropria- tions already made."" 1 "don't think they will ever lie so badly crowded tbat way again. When the matter of appropriations comes up again, I and my fellow visitorshere now will come up with it; and we will shout over congressman Hermann's shoulder, 'He's allright!' " "We left the government works at 530. just at the hour whenthe sun is passing down to the horizon,andcast ingbeautiful multi-colore- d tints over tbe ocean, and flooding everything in aglorious light. At Q;R1 we reached, storla again, and here we weremet by th.e Astoria board of trade, who escorted us up to amost enjoyable dinner, where nothing but facts aud truths prevailed. We did but little joking. Burrows pouldn't joke. Efe was too full of salmon; wp all were. Salmon is fjrst class eating; in faqt, tbe memory of tbe sample we got at that dinner is richer than the genuine pastern article. Afterour dinner was over, we went through apacking es- tablishment, Thesalmondidn't taste so good after that; still it was rich too rich, in fact We were shown Um modus operandi in every partipulari aud then departed for Portland, on lAirline, at 8:15 in the evening."

The Firemen's Tournament to BeHeld In September. Chief ltainoy went out yesterday after- noon among tho business menwitha sub- scription paper toraise the funds tomake up purses for tho firemen's tournament in September. The firstmanmet wasD. P. Lewis whomade it $f0. Chnrles T. Uhlman subscribed 100. This the chief considered verygood for a starter, as ho had onlybeen out about ten minutes. Twoof the boyswerealso out with pa- pers, and there isnodoubt but funds for handsome purses will bo easily raised. A veryenthusiastic meeting of "tho volun- teer firedepartment washeld, at which it wasdecided that tho tournament must bemade agreat success. Companies in the Northwestern firemen's association willcompete for tho prizes, which willbe $3,000 in purses, beside liberal prizes which willbemade upbybusiness houses aud enterprising citizens of Tacoma in addition thereto. Two tournaments have already been held in this city in its more adolescent days, which were considered asgreat events in their day,chiefKainey, being then asnowamoving spirit in fire circles. The tournament will last three or four days and willbeheld about the middle ofSeptember. Tacoma Qlohe, 2G. That sounds like business. Tbe constitution and s say that there must be first a" meeting of tbe board and that the tournament can't be held till ninety days after such meeting, etc., butthis provision cau be ignored owing to tbe exigencies of the occasion. Thesecretary of the associ- ation resides here, aud the president in Walla Walla,and it has been diff- icult to have a busiuessmeeting. The Astoria fire department will Iig qn dool:, us usual, but will have no picnic A little drilling, however, is all that will be needed to got there in great shape. It is none too soon, to bfgin, right now, 'satternoon. The Albany and Astoria Kailroad. A prominent citizen of Astoria, who is connected with the Astoria and South Coast railway, has written to a gentleman in this city for information concerning the movements of tbe Al- bany and Astoria. Railway company, asking if thoy mean business, and what thoy aro doing. The people of Astoria are determined to have rail- roadconnection with the Willamette valley and they are naturally inter- ested in the Albany and Astoria road. Tbe latter company, which is duly incorporated with a capital stock of 1,000,000, has a party of en- gineers aud surveyors in tbe fields who have surveyed tbe mute from Albany as far a Independence, The company has got apart sufficient money to complete tho survey, aud lopatp the road to Astoria The stockholders of the company are some of the city's wealthy citizens and a well founded rumor is abroad that railroad men with ample capital are backing the enterprise, and will take hold of it as soon as such survey is completed and the right of d, 2G.

Through the archives of the University of Oregon Library, this column revisits and celebrates some of those stories of our profession. Don’t Shoot The Surveyor! By Pat Gaylord, PLS The Daily Astorian Astoria, Oregon June 28, 1889 The Daily Astorian of July 28, 1889, carried three stories of surveyors. Two of the stories covered the sur- vey of railroad grades from Astoria to the Willamette Valley. The third story may echo the experiences some of us have had or have come close to while surveying land devel- opments in the modern day! “Mr. Jackson, who has charge of the party of surveyors and civil engineers who are laying out and platting the new building property at Smith’s Point, desires to object to the custom of indiscriminate shooting. Three times last week his books and field notes were perforat- ed with shot, and twice the hats of men were plugged full of holes by shot, the hats being on the heads of the men at the time. These men haven’t their lives insured, and re- spectfully ask that parties going out to Smith’s Point to shoot will please not shoot towards where they are. Otherwise they may take a hand themselves, and accidentally plug two or three shootists so that a doctor would make good day wag- es picking shot out of them.” Author’s Note: Based on a 1949 USGS Quadrangle map, Smith Point is located at the western edge of Astoria where Young’s Bay meets the Columbia River.  x
