Yaquina bay Wednesday morning
at 5 o'clock, on its way from San
Francisco to Puget Sound. Hund
reds of people from the Valley came
down over the C. & E. railroad to
view them, but as the fleet in pas
sing this port was twenty or " thirty
miles off shore the only thing visible
was the smoke from the ships.
This was a great disappointment to
the people of Oregon as it was
promised that the fleet would come
in close at the entrance to this bay
and stop, or at least run under
slow bell, and give the people an
opportunity to see them.

Elia May Destroyed.
Scarth- and Altree's gasoline
launch Ella May was completely
destroyed by fire last Monday night,
while on the ways at Altree's saw
mill near Toledo. Workmen were
just putting on the finishing touches
to improvements and repairs pre
paratory to launching her on high
tide alxjut midnight, when at ten
o'clock an explosion occured and
soon the flames, fed by about sixty
galons of gasoline, spread over the
entire boat, and in less than an
hour was burned to the ground.
Captain Nost, who was one of
the workmen, had just climbed
aboard and started down into the
cabin when the explosion came.
He was seriously burned about the
face and hands. Dr. McMurdo,
who had arrived, dressed the wounds
No "thors were hurt.
The Ella May was the largest
and finest launch on this Bay. She
was built at the Altree Mill and
launched last spring. She was of a
15 ton register and could comfort
ably carry 100 passengers. Messrs.
Scarth and Altree are very heavy
loosers by the destruction of
this launch. The loss is heavier
just now as it is at the Ix'gining of
the season's work, when her own
ers expected to reap some returns
for their investment.
The Ella May was to have been
launched at midnight Monday night
and was chartered to take Toledo
people to Newport to witness the
passing of the fleet the following
Immediately after the first explo
sion on the boat the workmen at
j the sawmill started blowing the fire
whistle, then the fire bell soon had

sixty gallons of gasolene, was yet on
the boat and it was feared the ex
ploding of this might kill some of

To Republican Voters.
An overwhelming majority of
Oregon's voters by registration have
formally declared that they believe
in the principles' of the Republican
Party. Let them now show that
they are honest by voting in ac
cordance with their declarations.
The Oregon election comes liefore
the Republican National Conven
tion. Let eve'ry Republican voter
in the First Congressional District
uphold the honor of the Republican
Party in Oregon and strengthen the
influence of Oregon's delegation in
the National Convention by voting
for H. M. Cake for United States
Senator and W. C. llawlcy for
Representative in Congress. If
either of these Republican nominees
fail of election the primary election
system will lie discredited and a re
turn of lxiss rule will be invited.
The good name of Oregon's voters
will be smirched and Oregon's
delegation to the National Conven- '
tion will be placed in a humiliating
position. For the effect it will
have on the November election it is
imperative that the Republican
nominees in the June election shall
be elected by an overwhelming .ma
jority. As a believer in the princi
pals of the Republican Party it is
your duty to be at the polls June
1st, and vote for Cake and Hawley.
