that" he said. "Don't kill off good men
In that way."
Dewey waa affable and genial with
the soldier boys but the personification
of unapproachablllty with his own
men. A corporal of company t Oregon
regiment, now editing a newspaper In
Eastern Oregon, boarded the Olympla
In Manila bay and resolved to see the
famous admiral. He caught sight ot
him on the bridge and started up.
"Where are you going?" demanded a
antrv. 'Tm going to shake hands
with Dewey.- answered the webfoot
Infantryman. "You're not allowed up
there." said the sentry as he barred the
way. Dewey heard the disturbance
and ascertaining the cause, told the
corporal to "come up." He shook
hands with the delighted soldier, spoke
a few words and dismissed him. As
tbe Oregonlan passed the marine guard
the latter growled "Tea he'd shake
hands with you but he never notices

THE STATE RUNS AGROUND.
Sticks Fast on Deedamona Sands Early
The steamship State ot California got
aground on Deadamona sands early
yesterday morning. The tide was high
at the time and she remained fast un
til high water, about 7 o'clock yesterday
The tug Escort was dispatched to
her assistance aa soon as the news of
the acldent reached the city. Nothing,
however, could be done until the tide
rose sufficiently to float her off. About
high tide she was towed Into the chan
nel by the Ecsort and soon after arrived
at the O. R. A N. dock.
Capt Green said he crossed over the
the bar at 2:30 yesterday morning. It
was clear outside, but soon after en
tering the harbor he ran Into a thick
cloud of fog, which completely envel
oped the vessel until after daylight.
The State was poking her way slowly
and the lead was frequently thrown.
About live minutes before the ves
sel struck Captain Green says be found
six fathoms of water. There were no
fog signals by which he could take his
bearings. After grounding, an effort
was made ot get her off by her own
steam, but sha could not be moved.
Captain Green said this harbor should
be provided with fog signals to pre
vent such accidents. Every harbor on
the coast has them and they can be ob
tained from the government on re
quest. The State had about 100 passen
gers on board and a large quantity of

DOCTOR MORRIS' LECTURE,
A Large and Appreciative Audience
Present at the Methodist Church
; .' ...--T. - V.
The lecture delivered last evening at
the Methodist thurch by Dr. Q. K.
Morris, of Boston Vnlverslty, Was a
spiritual and Intellectual treat rare
ly enjoyed In Astoria. The subject
of the lecture was, 'The Relation
more divine that the base surroundings
ot earth, and that God Is a most lov
ing and generous Being, who desires
the harplnea t( (ill, and who I not to
be blamed for the frailties and ml
tttk of a debauched humanity: the
thankless recipients of his xunshlne and
showers, and most of whom reject the
richest blessings a God can offer be
cause their sins have blinded them to
their value. ,
THK HARVEST FESTIVAL.
"The Harvest Festival" exercises will
be held at the Salvation Army on Sat
urday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday
evenings next. On Saturday there will
a musicai and literary program, and
Ice cream and cak will be served dur
ing the exercises. An auction aal of
goods of different descriptions will be
held during th evening, and busln
men or other cltliens who desire to
donate any little article to further the
Cause will plea-e notify the officers In
charge, or send them to the barracks
at ry time between this and Saturday

elegance or tne speakers delivery, jne army, and. while no large donations
are exneeted. there are always
grounds for hope that a sufficient num
txr of small sums can be realised to
make up a substantial sum.

with the vigor and originality of the
thoughts sugysted. charmed and de
lighted the audlenc present and held
thi-ir wrapt attention from the begin
ning. The Impression of Dr. Morris'
demonstration of the practical value
of the principles of Christianity had a
visible effect on his hearers, and Its In
fluence in the religious growth and
moral awakening of more than one
circle in the community of Astoria
will be felt for many years to come.
Dr. Morris maintained, with con
vincing logic, that the teaching of Jesus
Christ Is not Intended nwrely to make
men good In the narrow sense of the
word, or to entitle them to seats In
heaven, or to provide a way of escape
from hell, but that the true Interpreta
tion of Christianity means the develop
ment, by education, of complete man
hood, physical, mental and moral, as
well as spiritual; In short, that It is
and should be the education ot each and
all of the God-given attributes of hu

complete which does not provide for

velopment. H especially condemned
the narrowness and selfishness of cer
tain self-righteous ones whose highest
nlm Is to reach heaven regardless of
consequences, and showed how eagerly
the Impure would depart In shame
from that holy place If they should
ever chance to arrive there.
He contended that Christ does not
mean merely to promise a rest In heav
en to those who are weary and heavy
laden in thW world, but that the rest
should be enjoyed In this life and will
be In proportion as the true principles
of Christianity are employed.
One ot the many practical statements
of the lecturer was that the only way
to permanently relieve the oppressed
and dow ntrodden Is to elevate them by
this all-around education Into such
complete men and women that they will
be fully able to take care of them
selves and not suffer through the Im
position of others.
