Dewey Is the attraction on the At lantic side of America. From the re ported Interview with him it It ap parent that he doe not take much lock In his own greatness and amid all the furor raised by his admirer he ndeavor to be only hi simple self 4 plain man and a sailor. Sever! men ,n Astort hav "n tvwv. Members of the" Second Ore gon have seen him often and they hav Hnntrtd more thau rwral Anderson for working the vol unteers too hard In unloading ln sell at Cavite. "Get native to do 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 me and I have been under him 15 ' years." THE STATE RUNS AGROUND. Sticks Fast on Deedamona Sands Early Teaterday Morning. 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 evening. 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 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 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 man nature. He made plain that no education Is complete which does not provide for the development of all the best pos sibilities of man, and that true sue- During th month of September. 189. cess In life Is measured by this de- wl "Upose of my household fund- HANDSOMEST STREET.

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.
