. NEW YORK. Sept. 27. W. J. PIrrle,
fot the Harlan & Wolff Shipbuilding Com
pany, of Belfast, Ireland, has confirmed
the reports that the details of the great
trans-Atlantic ship combination have been
completed, and that announcement would
ie made next week, says the Herald.
"It Is quite true," he said, "that the
steamship combination Is now practically
completed. I sail for Europe on the Celtic
on October 3, and I believe by that tlmo
every arrangement will be perfected."
"Will the Harlan. & Wolff Shipbuilding
Company be included?" he was asked.
"No; It will not be Interested In the
combination further than it will have
specified contracts to build boats for the
English part of the company. The Eng
lish companies will remain Intact and
their boats will continue to fly the Eng
lish flag. Our company will build ships
for that part of the, combination. Pos
sibly we may build for the American lines,
but that will depend upon the exigencies
of our trade."
NEW YORK, Sept. 27. The Commer
cial Advertiser prints the following to
day: "It was learned today on the highest
authority that all the details of the At
lantic steamship combination, which had
been arranged by J. P. Morgan, are now
practically completed and the deal will
be consummated and the full particulars
be made public early next "week."
STEAMER. HARRISON DAMAGED.
Returns to Astoria, After Ineffectual
Attempt to Reach Yaqnlna.
ASTORIA, Sept. 27. (Special.) The
steamer W. H. Harrison returned to port
this morning in a leaking condition, after
an ineffectual attempt to reach Yaqulna
with a cargo of cannery supplies. She
left out from here at noon on Thursday
and got well down tho coast before the
storm struck her. Tho gale was of un
usual severity, but Captain Latham kept
the steamer's head into it until within U
miles of his destination, when it was
found that she was leaking so badly that
all her pumps could just keep her clear.
He then decided to turn and run before
the storm to Astoria again, which was
reached in safety.
The Harrison Is an excellent sea boat,
and with a good jib to steady her Is per
fectly safe, but the one she had was old
and could not be used when the gale was
at its height, for fear that It would be
blown away. Tho cause of the leakage Is
not yet known, but It is believed that her
seams opened, or some of her keel or
rudder bolts worked loose. As soon as her
cargo is discharged she will be placed or?
tho beach and examined.
SMOOTH ESCAPE OF SAILORS.

(Waken, his two mates and two United
States deputy Marshals went on board
(and lined tho men up on deck, six of
them slipped over the stern of the steamer
onto the dock and disappeared. The re
malnlng 11 were taken on board the Rick
oners, and the town is being searched to
night for the missing men.
Several sailor boarding-house men from
tboth Portland and Astoria met the steam

BAY WINDOW ENCROACHES
Protest Ajrainst Allowing It to Pro
ject Far Over Sldeiralk.
PORTLAND, Sept. 27. (To the Editor.)
I observed in Friday's Oregonlan an ar
ticle in reference to a so-called bay win
dow extending over the sidewalk at the
nortneasL tunicx uj. nuurauu unu
Salmon streets. This Is really an exten
sion of the full upper story and Is 25 feet
In length. It projects three feet, and this,
with the eaves, "makes a projection of 4
feet beyond the line of the street. Any
person passing within the overhang limit
of 4 feet would be struck In the event
of anything falling from the eavea
Our own Supreme Court has passed on
thia question in the case of Savage vs.
the City of Salem, 23 Or. 2S1, where it Is
held by Justice Bean, for the court,
that the streets and highways belong
entirely to the public, and cannot be en
croached upon nor impeded by private
persons for private use; municipal cor
porations having control of the streets
may permit erections or obstructions
therein when these are intended to sup
ply a public demand.
Now the extension of this building over
the street is in no sense for the public
use nor for the good of the public, -but Is
for purely private and selfish purposes.
Therefore it is obnoxious to the law, as
laid down by one of our highest courts.
The 'city has no power, to give away the
public streets ,for private' use, and it
might as1 well' try to give the right to
extend a boundary 20 feet over the street
as to extend it four feet.

WEATHER FOR OCTOBER.
What May Be Expected, Judging
From Thirty Years' Experience.
The following data, covering a period of
30 years, have been compiled from the
Weather- Bureau records at Portland, Or.:

ature, 54 degrees; the warmest month was
that of 1301, with an average of 59 degrees;
the coldest month was thut of 1S93, with
an average of 50 degrees; the highest
temperature was -S3 degrees, on the 7th,
1891; the lowest temperature was 31 de
grees, on the 31st, 1S77, and 30th. 1695;
average date on which first "killing" frost
occurred In Autumn, November 15; average
date on which last "killing" frost occurred

Average for the month, 3.52 Inches; aver
age number, of days with .01 of an Inch
or more, 13; the greatest monthly precipi
tation was 1L5S inches. In 1SS2; the least

SITE TO BUILD DRYDOCK.
Great Amount of Space Xceded on
"Notwithstanding the frequent assertions
that there are plenty of sites on the Wil
lamette River for the construction of tho
drydock, none proposed has been conclu
sively proved suitable," said a prominent
business man yesterday. "Doubt Is ex
pressed that any of the present shipyards
at Portland would be large enough..
"It Is maintained that a yard at least
500 feet square, above high water, wlll.be
required. The drydock will consist of
flvo pontoons, each 112 feet long and SO
feet wide. In order to finish tho dock
within the time specified by the contract,
the contractor will have to build at least
two o fthem at a time, and then three.
At all events, three pontoons will have
to be under construction some time dur
ing the fulfillment of the contract. In
order to Insure safe "launching, the pon
toons are to be built so that their length
will be parallel with tho river. Each will
be 112 feet long, and at least 50 feet of
space will haye to bo allowed between
them. If, therefore, the assertion that
three pontoons will bo In the yard at one
time is true, the shore length of .the ship
yard will have to be at least 500 feet.
"Behind the pontoons will have to be
space for yardage, machinery and stor
age of lumber, so that he distance re
quired back from the river, it Is said, will
be about 500 feet"

"FIRST SERVICE IX PORTO RICO.
Rev. Robert srcljenn Preaches In
English and Spnnish Languages.
A letter was received from Rev. Rob
ert McLean yesterday, in San Juan, Porto
Rico, where he has gone to take charge
of tho Presbyterian Work in that island.
Ho writes that he and hia son, who went
with .him, had a pleasant trip and arrived
safely at their destination. The first Sun
day he preached in both English and
Mr. McLean's headquartera will be -at
San Juan, and his appointments will be
in San Juan and a neighboring town.
Every Sunday he will speak to English
and Spanish congregations. Ho writes
that his English congregation Is made up
of several denominations, but as he had
just arrived when his first letter waa dis
patched, he had formed few acquaint
ances. Incidentally Mr. McLean says that
San Juan Is filled with crowds of people,
and he Is led to wonder where they all
live. He had expected to find a great
fruit country, but wag surprised to find
less fruit in Porto Rico than in Oregon.
From his first letter home Mr. McLean's
Oregon frlenda will learn that he jumped
right Into his work immediately on hir
arrival ,wlth his customary energy, and
that there is every prospect that his work
in that field will prove as successful as
they believe and espect it will. Educated

It Is now fully inclosed. On the inside
the' walls and ceiling have been covered

going outside. A passageway leads direct
from tho exchange building into the cot

It is completed and provided with switch

Live Trolley Wire Swings All Aronnd
Him and Drops at Ills Feet.
Dr. George Nottage, who lives on East
Pine and East Eighth streets, had a nar
row escape from being electrocuted by a
live electric wire dropping down on Mor
rison street on Thursday last It waa a
mere accident that he was not caught in
the coils of the wire as it circled and
whirled all around him.
He was walking along the street when
the trolley gave way and dropped on the
street, sputtering and emitting sparks as
connection was made with tho earth. It
swung around him several times, and
finally curled up at his feet a few inches
away. When Dr. Nottage saw the. wire
fall, he stopped perfectly still, believing
he was safer than if he undertook to get
out of the way.

Modern Woman's Versatility.
One of the greatest charms of the at
tractive modern woman, says a French
author lies In her great variety of moods.
She presents a different typs half a dozen
times a day, so that one 13 never bored
in her company; while the interest Is
constantly sustained by wondering what
phase will be presented next. Certainly
the girl of the new century answers to
this description, for she has almost as
many sides as there are facets to a dia
mond. She Is charmingly girlish In her
simple white frock in the morning, 'ar
ranging the flowers or performing some
other pretty domestic service. She la
deliclously feminine gowned in her
berullled muslin driving about in
her low basket wagon like a
girly girl of long ago. She is de
cidedly masculine In her riding togs, with
all the courage and dash of an adventure
some youth, In her pursuit of sport by
land and water. Afterward, strangest of
all the transformations, looking like a
gnome from elfland, ahe appears In gog
gles, visor and coat while taking out her
French racing "bubble" for a spin. Later,
returning dutsy and grimy, like a butter
fly emerging from a chrysalis, she finally
reappears In a bewitching French confec
tion, with long silken train, ready for
conquest in the evening.
