IK the parade:.
Two Wagon Loads of Pyrdteclmte
"Ware Accidentally Set Off Nar
The fireworks on the wa.gon of the
fourth division of the parade exploded
last night on Oak street, near First,
Just before starting, badly burning two
The men burned were H. Newell, who
lives at S55 Alder street, and Harry Cos
grove, who lives on First near Colum
bia. Newell's hands are burned severely,
and his face and arms are also burned.
Cosgrove's face, hands, arms and back
are all burned more or less. His face is
the most seriously hurt, though neither
man is necessarily dangerously Injured.
There were three men in charge of this
wagon G-eorge Lincoln, H. Newell and
H. Cosgrove. Lincoln sent up a rocket.
The sparks from it Ignited the other rock
ets in the wagon, and the entire lot ex
ploded. Lincoln jumped from the wagon,
but the other two men were caught in
the explosion and completely covered
with fire. Both of them jumped from the
wagon as soon as possible, but not before
receiving many painful burns.
The two Injured men were taken to
Pf under s drug store, at Third and Oak,
where they received medical attention.
They were then taken to their homes.
The horses in the wagon were slightly
burned, and the wagon was almost ru
ined. The explosion created great excitement
in the crowd. "Women screamed, men
swore and children cried. One old woman
fell to the tground. but was picked up by
7JL L. Pipes, who happened to be in the
crowd. Just then the horses made a
lunge for the sidewalk, and Judge Pipes
was knocked down himself. Some one
helped him to his feet in time to save
him from being trampled by the crowd.
Several others came near being caught
in the crush, and, had not the curbstone
stopped the wagon, several would no
doubt have been killed.
Just then the fire wagon of the third
division came rushing into Oak street, on
lire. The fireworks on It had exploded,
and the horses had gotten away, but were
stopped on Oak street before doing any
Both the third and fourth divisions
were left without fireworks, and were
obliged to parade in less light than the
REPAIRING WILL NOT DO.
Grand Avenue Must Have an En
tirely Kew Roadway.
A carpenter and builder who is accus
tomed to handling "ttarbers, and who lives
on Grand avenue, (made am examinatfon
of the condition; of the plank roadway on
"tibial sbreet this week, and says that it
w3U be a waste of money and effort "to
undertake to repair generally the present
improvement. He calls attention to the
disintegration "that has been going: on
oonstawtty on the under side of the tim
bers with, which the avenue is planked,
and. says that the decayed portion of the
under sKte extends upward through the
timbers from one to two inches, and this,
with the great wear on ttie surface, leaves
ii&tle exxmd material to count om He
thinks that to put in sound planks where
the oKt ones ane oomp'etely or nearty
gone would) he&p matters but Uttte. Very
soon other portions of the street would
give way, and after the expense there
would be little improvement. This man,
who is a property-owner, thinks there
is but one thing' to do to improve again
wiiHa paanks ixs, or leave the street alone,
t the majority of the property-owners
do not caire to do thle, and wait until
they are driven to do exwnetihlng of their
volition. Another business man said yes
terday that he was paying $75 per snoiutih
rent tfor his storeroom, but could easHy
pay $100 per month if the street in front
of his place of business were improved.
It would cost the owner of this store
between $50 and! $70 to make the imiprove
snent, and he Is w&Hng to do this the
others wilS do the 6ome with their por
tion of the street. It has been suggested
that Grtmd avenue be improved from
Belmont to East Stark street, through the
business section, and let the remainder
of the street go for the present.
At Pleasant Home.
The weather yesterday morning dis
mayed, but dd not discourage, the peo
ple of Pleasant Home, and Quite a number
gathered to have a quiet celebration, in
the G. A. R. grove, under the auspices
of the Christian Endeavor Society. It
was rather daenp in the forenoon, but as
it cleared up In the arternoon the exer
cises were proceeded with and enjoyed.
On the progranmne were the Rev. "W. T.
Scott and Hiss Lena Morrow for ad

patriotic zeal. A table was set near the
speakers' stand, so that all could have a

who wanted a. quiet Fourth.

IN BALLAST FOR BOUNTY
FIVE FRENCH SHIPS AltB SOW
BIT ROUTE TO PORTIiAND.
With the Aid of ine Government
They Are Displacing? British
Ships in Coal Trade.
The French bark Alice, a vessel of 1193
tons net register, sailed from Havre for
this port June 17, making a totar of five
vessels fllng the French flag which are
bound for Portland in ballast Owing to
the generous bounty paid by the French
Government, these vessels are enabled to
make the long trip without carrying car
go, and still pay a profit on the invest
ment. Most of them that are sent out
this way, however, are much larger than
this latest addition to the list, and she
will need to secure a pretty high rate of
freight in order to make much profit out
of the trip, even with the subsidy. Owr
ing to the ridiculous bounty system, the
French vessels are crowding the British
sailers out of some trades, and If the
French Government was rich enough to
stand the pressure. It would not be long
before she would have the carrying trade
of the world, for no other nation is so
foolish as to hire men to engage In any
Somo idea of the extent to which these
bounty earners are displacing British ves
vels in certain trades is gleaned from the
list of coal ships bound to San Fran
cisco. There are 11 ships listed for San
Francisco from Swansea, and seven of
the number are flying the French flag.
Another big fleet of these vessels went
out to Australia In ballast, and loaded
coal for San Francisco,' 13 out of 43 ves
sels listed for San Francisco from New
castle being entitled to the French
WHO REDUCED FARES?
Captain Newiiom States That Small
Steamers Were Jiot to Blame.
Captain W. E. Newsom, owner of the
steamer Iralda, which is known as the
opposition boat, no matter what route she
Is running on, takes exception to the
statement printed in these columns a few
days ago to the effect that It was the
owners of small steamers who Initiated
the practice of rate cutting on the lower
river. In support of his statement, he
displays a large and Interesting assort
ment of hand WHb running back as far

As peace became tiresome there would
be a decline, and at one stage -of the
game. Uncle Joseph Kellogg Issued a
neat little Invitation offering to take all
passengers to Portland to see the ele
phant, with Forepaugh's circus,, at no
cost whatever for the round trip. This
is believed to be the lowest rate that was
made, although there are reports that a
chromo and a steamboat lunch were
thrown in on some occasions. Captain
Newborn asserts that he Is a man of
peace, and he proposes to have It if he
continues fighting for It the rest of his
life. In support of his assertion, he states
that he will Immediately reduce fares on
The Dalles route to 60 cents.

A Q,niet Day for Deep Water Ship
ping but Lively for Steamboats.
It was a quiet" day on the water front
yesterday, exdept for the movement of
the river fleet. All of the ocean vessels
In port were Idle and dressed out In bunt
ing In honor' of the day. The steamer
State of California arrived up from San
Francisco abdut 7 o'clock bringing -a. full
crowd of passengers, who got ashore in
time to participate in the celebration In
the evening. The river steamers all
brought good crowds in, and many of
them delayed their .departure until after
the conclusion of, the evening ceremonies.
There wero also a number of steamboat
excursions to points outside of the city,
and despite the unfavorable weather
most of them scmed to be well patronized.

A GLIMPSE OF NOME CITY
FIRST EXPERIENCE AT THE FAR
NORTHERN GOLD CAMP.
Beach Strewn With Tents and Miles
of Outfits and Miscellaneous
Freight Confusion Is Great.
NOME CITY, June 18. The advpnee
guard of the great armada of gold seek
ers for Nome has now arrived, making a j
neet or aoout 2o large passenger sieameva
-and a dozen smaller craft. The only
big steamer that is still missing Is the
Garonne, which Is reported to have gone
on a rock at the entrance to Dutch Har
bor, where sho went in for the second
time to wait for the Ice to break up.
In the Behring Sea. What will be done
with her passengers or the extent of the
damages Is not definitely known. Of
course the whole fleet is now In full ac
tivity, discharging cargo, but lack of
Hcrhtpr fanlHtfpa and also lack of stor
age roSm on the beach delays the work 1
considerably. The whole beach for many
miles Is so crammed with merchandise, '
machinery and supplies of every con
ceivable kind under the sun, that a per
son has to contest his passage through
by climbing over piles of boxes, Jumping
over barrels and running out In the surf
ankle deep. Although men, teams and
beach boats are taxed to their utmost. It
seems impossible to get the things
freighted away as fast as landed. If
there were a thousand more good teams
on the beach at the present time there
would be plenty for them to do. Horse
teams are paid $10 por. hour, and dog
teams $5, and as . the discharging of
freight Is going on continually day and
night, the enterprising owners of draft
animals are in a position to make pretty
fair wages and most likely will be
through the whole Summer.
Very little prospecting and beach dig.
ging has been done yet by the new comer,
as very fow of them have got all their
freight landed, and until then they are
tied up to their tent on the beach, watch
ing their belongings like the proverbral
dragon guarding the golden fleece. From
now on they will grr dually spread out
In all directions. Some will go prospect
ing, some will go to work for wages in
the big mines, some will try the beach,
and some the tundra. None of the
big mines up Snake River have started
operations yet, but I learned yesterday
that they are going to commence taking
their supplies up there In a few days.
It Is estimated that there must (bo
about 20,000 people In Nome at present,
and there are a good many more to come,
as several sailing vessels are yet to ar
rive. About C00O people have come In
from the Klondike In the last few days,
and about 2000 came down on the Ice
last Winter. The diggings must indeed
be fabulously rich, and the extent of ter
ritory exceptionally great to stand this"
enormous strain without things taking a
tumble inJ. short while. The abnormal
conditions which exist here now can not
last. The place Is too accessible for that.
Things will gradually find their level ac
cording to the law of supply and demand.
It will bo the history of every mining
excitement repeating Itself. After the
first excitement shall have passed, the
true estimate of the stability of a min
ing district can be made. But that there
is gold here, and lots of it, nobody can
dispute. The richness of the best claims
here and the extent of paying ground has
probably never been exceeded In the his
tory of mining excitement. Howevei-.
this Summer's work will tell the tale.
Wages for common labor are now Jl
per hour. Carpenters and other mechan
ics get Jl 50 per hour, and I hear they
are going to pay JS per day and board
in the big mines, but it is hardly to be
expected that such wages as these will
be kept up the whole Summer. Tugboats
towing lighters get J25 per trip, and each
trip takes them about half an hour. A
half a dozen more tugs and a dozen more
lighters could be kept busy during the
present rush. Boatmen carrying passen
gers to and from the steamers get J2
per head each way, without a grumble.
The- steamers are anchored from half a
mile to one ml'c out from the shore. So
far the weather has been fine and the
work of discharging has been carried
on under the most favorable conditions.
Lumber is In great demand, as might
bo expected. All that has been shipped
In so far has been snapped up as fast
as it got ashore at prices ranging be
tween 125 and J175 per 1000 feet. As there
are several million feet on the way. It is
more than likely that this price will soon
como down. Coal is also a hlgh-prlcca
commodity, bringing at present 575 to 5S5
per ton. A lunch of the "hand-out" style
Is 50 cents, "a good square," Jl to J2, ana
the poor man's standby, coffee and
doughnuts, 25 cents.
As the ship comes In past Cape Nome
the most conspicuous object Is a white
bank stretching for miles along the
beach, which, If you are nearsighted, you
will swear Is a big bank of snow. This Is
an error, for it Is a line of tents, thou
sands of them, and back of them you see
big zinc-plate warehouses and stores and
other big buildings looming up. By and
by you come to anchor and a boatman
comes alongside, who la generally a
specimen of the hardy Norseman, and a
stranded Klondlker. If you are in a
great hurry to get ashore you and three
or four more will iumn in aml'be swlft-
yly pulled lh. on the beach. When you ask

all directions. Here Is a man chopping
up a piece of wreckage to make a fire
with, and here another making his bed
on a pile of flour sacks. He seems to bo
sick. Tou push on. climbing over boxe3
and barrels and sacks, dodging team3 and
Finally you get up town to the main
street. Here the crowd Is so dense that
you have to elbow your way through
It. Buildings are springing up every
where, and stores are being fitted up, all
of tho cheap, knock-down style, charac
teristic of mining camps. All Is bustle
and activity. Every blow of the hammer,
every crack of the whip says: "Get there,
get there, geC there"; and they are get
ting there fast. Every day sees a change,
every hour Is pregnant with new enter
prises. Almost evrfiry second business
house in the main street Is a saloon, and
they are big roomy affairs, all crowded
to the doors. I counted In one of them not
less than 16 games surrounded by eager
crowds of fortune hunters. And this goes
on 24 hours every day, for there are no
nights here now.
The most unique sight to the tenderfoot
Is the dog teams. Tou walk along the
street eyes and ears all alert, when sud
denly a big" dog with a tiny bell and har
ness brushes by your teet; then another
and another: and now you realize that
this Is one of those Alaska dog teams
that you have heard so much about. Tou
get out of the way, and Just in time, for
there comes a cart rattling along In a
great hurry. The driver Is coming on
behind on a trot, shouting: "Mushon.
mushon! NIg. gee! hoo! mushon, mush
on." Then they get to a grade, and the
husky little brutes bend to It like good
fellows, shaking their tails and snapping
at each other full of energy and pride
In their profession. All day long they
work untiringly, and when off duty they
either sleep or fight. ED LUND.

SnccesMfnl Experiments With Food.
A gentleman In Oak Park, Cal., Henry
Pockman, took up the question of food,
to see if he could recover from an old
case of dyspepsia, from "which nux vom
ica, pepsin and other remedies gave hlrn
He started In with Grape-Nuts break
fast food, and his dyspepsia quickly dis
appeared. He also left off the use of
coffee and took Postum Food Coffee In
Its place. He writes that he has been put
right, perfectly well, and going to remain
so by continuing the use of the Grape
Nuts food and Postum Coffee.
It Is worth any one's trial, who desires
to be well, to change thd diet, and par
ticularly to leave off coffee. Grape-Nuts
food contains elements that rebuild the
gray matter in the nerve centers and
brain and give one a feeling of reserve
strength, and vigor. This food Is per
fectly cooked at the factory, can be
served Instantly, and. Is on sale at all
first-class grocers. , .. .
