KILBURN IS MISSING
San Francisco Liner Has Not
Yet Crossed Bar.
ANXIETY FOR HER SAFETY
She Was Reported Off the Columbia
River Bar Monday Morning,
and Has Not Been
Nothing has been heard or seen of the
steamer F. A. Kllburn since Monday
morning, when she parted company with
the steamer Alliance off the Columbia
JUver bar, and some anxiety Is felt con
cerning her safety. She was expeciea
ln on yesterday's high tide, but
the old ocean came and went and still
not even the smoke of the missing coaster
loomed up on the horizon. The weather
was thick, however, and the lookout
at the cape had difficulty covering a
creat distance with his powerful glasses.
The steamers Jeanle and Czarina, the
former from Los Angeles, via San Fran
cisco, and the latter from San Francisco
direct, are also understood to be ouisiae.
tooth havlnc left the Bay City last Fri
day night, at which time the Kllburn also
started for Portland.
Reports from the mouth of the river
late last night stated that the weather
3iad moderated considerably, ana
smoother bar is looked for today. Yes
terday dawned with a fierce wind sweep
ing along the coast Irom tne soumwesi.
and rain almost obscured the bar. The
breaker continued rolling high all day.
however, and under the circumstances
Captain Merriam. of the Kllburn, prob
ably considered it better policy to remain
at sea another night than to take chances
on the bar in the thick weather.
The Kllburn has a heavy freight and
manv oassenger." on board. She Is oper
ated by the Watsonville Transportation
Comnanr. She Is a staunch vessel, and
Jf not delayed by the thick weather, her
only reason for remaining outside can oe
a breakdown in her machinery or steer-

BIG WHEAT CARGOES.
Two French Bnrks CIcur for the
Two large cargoes of wheat were cleared
for Europe yesterday afternoon, 244,4Sl
"bushels being the actual measurement of
the two cargoes. Their combined value is
estimated at $188,901. Both cargoes will
go to Quccnstown or Falmouth for orders.
The largest portion of this enormous
auantlty of wheat was taken by the
French bark Asle. which was cleared by
Kerr. Glfford & Co., with 132.665 bushels.
valued at $99,498. The remainder. 111.616
"bushels, was taken by the French bark
La Rochejaquelln, whose manifest shows
a value of JS9.49S.
Both vessels dropped in the stream this
morning, and, being fairly well supplied
with sailors, may leave down without de
lay. Tho crew of tho Asle tried to start
trouble, but failed, and it is now ex
pected that they will be willing to take
tho vessel to sea without further remon
strance. Their main alleged cause for
complaint was that the bark had a loose
rivet in her botton. as a result of hav
Ing scraped bottom In one of the ports
at which she touched on her way out. but
tho officers and surveyors hold that the
ship is in perfectly seaworthy condition.
RAFT GOES ADRIFT.
Immense Structure of Piling Gives
Owners Another Scare.
ASTORIA. Jan. 23. (Special:) The
big: log raft went on another rampage
last night and after drifting fully
three miles "came to anchor" on
the north side of the channel near the
Dcsdemona Sands. The raft was
hauled Into deep water yesterday after
being stranded for several weeks and
was supposedly safely anchored with
two 600.0-pound mushroom anchors, one
being placed at either end.
On the ebb tide last night the raft
dragged its anchors and drifted down
until off the Flavel wharf, when It
caught the force of the gale and the
heavy sea and was carried to the north
a distance of about 1500 feet, where the
Three of the Callcnder Navigation
Company's steamers stood by all
day and until after low water tonight
and it still held its position. The
raft is not aground, there being about
21 feet of water around it at low
tide, and as soon as the sea goes down
it will be towed to the dolphins re
cently driven for it near Flavel.

but. on the contrary, every one seems to

of the city without this sewer.

Applications for v franchises, are now

these are granted, the work of building

for the company he represents. "This

It gets under way. In Los Angeles four
ears ago cars were run every hour to
Hollywood, but now It Is necessary to
run cars every five minutes. To Pasa

minute trolley service. The tourist travel
there helps out the trolley business, to
be sure, but there Is no reason why this
should not become a factor here also.
Report Los Angeles Success.
I was one of the first to call attention
to the fact that the Los Angeles country
Is a delightful Summer resort as well as
pleasant place to spend the Winter
months, and only a few years ago South-
ern California was known only as a Win -tcr
resort. Now all that Is changed, and
tourists spend their Summers In Los An

Is every reason to believe this city will
become a favorite place for tourists to

WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU
Few Tfople Iteallre the Importance of Good
Digestion Until It Is Lost.
Many people suffer from dyspepsia
and do not know It. They feel mean,
out of sorts, peevish, do not sleep well,
do not have a good keen appetite, do
not have the Inclination and energy
for physical or mental work they once
had, but at the same time do not feel
any particular pain or distress In the
stomach. Yet all this Is the result of
poor digestion, an Insidious form of
Dyspepsia which can only be cured by
a remedy specially Intended to cure
It and make the digestive organs act
naturally, and properly digest the food
eaten. Bitters, after dinner pills and
nerve tonics will never help the trou
ble; they don't reach It. The new
medical discovery does. It is calletf
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets and Is a-
specific for dyspepsia and Indigestion.
It cures because It thoroughly digests
all wholesome- food taken Into tin
stomach, whether the stomach Is lit
good -working order or not.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, by digesting-
the food. Instead of making
the worn out stomach do all the work,
gives It a much needed rest and a euro
of dyspepsia Is the natural result.
When you are nervous, run down
and sleepless, don't make the common
mistake of supposing your nervous
system needs treatment and fill your
stomach with powerful nerve tonics
which make you feel good for a little
-while only to fall back farther than
Your nerves are all jight, but they
