Castle Rock has been charted to load
ore at Victoria. B. C, for the 1'nlted
Kingdom. This will be the first full
cargo of ore to be shipped around the
Horn from the North. The Castle Rock
waa offering at this port and the Sound

out 64 days from Hong Kong for Brit

The steamer Oswego which was lying
at the Astoria Iron Works' slip was
discovered to have sunk at her moor
Ings early yesterday morning. She was
known to be leaking some forward and
she bumped quite a considerable in the
rough weather of Wednesday night and
probably strained her hull. She Is an
old craft and has been In svrvlce on
the upper river for a great many years.
She lie on the bottom clcse.up by
the end of Leathers' boat building es
tablishment so that she Is almost entire
ly exposed at low tide and she can
be easily floated. She had Just tied
up there the day before for repairs.
The steamship Robert Dollar, which
put Into this port In distress a few
week ago and was compelled to wait
several day for repairs, went to San
Francisco and lately returned to the

number of libel suits since her return
from Alaska and on Tuesday she was
libeled again at the Instance of the
North American Transportation and
Trading Company for 53.432.37. The li
bel states that when the Dollar waa
at St. Michael last September her mas
ter engaged the plaintiff company to
do a large amount of lighterage .work.
The bill for this was as stated, and
no payments have ever been made. A
surety company Is said to be arrang

ported by a New York company In a
brand new farce entitled "What Did
Tomklns Do?" Judging from the press
criticism, Mr. Clarke has scored a hit
of huge proportions In his latest at
tempt, the opinion obtaining that his
performance Is the very top notch of
comlo effort. One feature of his pro
duction, upon which no money has been
spared. Is the beautiful stage settings,
the handsome women who support him,
and the beautiful and artistic gowns
they wear. There are no less than a

and they alone represent the expendi

The Severest Gale for Many
DAMAGE AROUND ASTORIA
Ll.hU'jIp at McKculc Hd Carries' Ffrtber
laibare Vessels Report RoagbeU
Weather Ever Ciperieoced,
The atorm which has been raging for
several day on the coast Is one of
the most severe that has visited this
section for several years. While the
t"tuj extent of damages to shipping can
not be known for aonve time It cannot
fall to bo very large. The storm seems
to be general all along the coast and
vessel that, arrive in report the rough
est weather ever known along the coast
The steamer Centennial, from Seattle
to Han Francisco, arrived at the lat
ter place Tuesday afternoon after the
roughest trip In her history, bh'e wa
several days overdue and fears for her
safety have been frequently expressed.
The Centennial wa In the storm at
Nome during the past season, but the
ofllc'Ts state that that storm wa as
a gentle zephyr compared with the one
through w hich they have just passed.
The steamer Willamette also arrived
at San Francisco Tuesday in a condi
tion that plainly told of her experi
ences. Hlgn seas washed over her,
shifting the after house and carrying
ovt-iloard the forward house. A half
dozen old life-boats were crushed to
kindling wood and swept away. Off
Point Blanco the downpour of raL-was
terrific. The cabins and cook's gal
Icy were tloided and the occupanta
forced to the upper deck rooma for
shelter. The forecastle was knee-deep
In water and the sailors were compelled
to leave. During the height f the
storm a huge wave swept Captain
Bridges from the bridge.
In Astoria the damage was light
compared with the terrific force of the
gale, and no really serious damage
was done. A few fences, sblewalks and
signs were the principal sufferers from
the wind. About 50 feet of the sidewalk
on Twenty-third street was picked up
bodily and turned up against the Clat
The house of J. K. Wirt on the hill
waa moved about six Inches on Its
foundation early yesterday morning,
considerably alarming the family and
barely escaping wrecking the building.
His barn waa also slightly twisted.
Several windows along the north side
of Commercial street were flooded with
rain that beat tKrough the Interstices
and the window displays of P. A. Stokes
and of the A. Dunbar Company were
gulte badly damaged.
The tide made a rise to about an eleven-foot
stage and flooded several ware
houses, etc. The basement of Foard
& Stokes store bad about six inches of
water in and caused some lively work
In protecting the godds
lb the harbor the shipping was mixed
up with the middle sands a little but no
very serious damage was done. The
French hark General Millinet dragged
her anchor and fetched up broadside
on the sands Just Inside the spar buoy
about even with Smith's Point. She
seems to be hard and fast on the sand
although uninjured. It is the opinion
of the pilots that she will have to be
Hahtered before she can be hauled off.
The British ship Muskoka was more
fortunate. She dragged nearly half &
mile and stuck her stern on on the
sandr In eighteen feet of water. At this
Juncture her anchor held and she
hauled In on the cable and when the
tide came In. floated safely.
The stranded lightship on McKenzle
Head was carried back early yester
day morning over the ground she had
been worked off and now lies nearly
SO feet furiher Inshore, harder aground
than ever. Although she had lines
running out to anchors the force of
the gale was such that she was picked
up and carried like a, chip.
The roof of the scnool house at New
Astoria was bloc.wn off and at Fort
Stevens th latest reports received stat
ed that the velocity of the wind at
that place was over 100 miles an hour.
All communication with the outside
world by wire has1 been shut off as
there Is not a telegraph or telephone
line working outside cf the city.

The steamer Shaver left Portland for
the scene of the stranded steamer Sarah
Dixon, which is lying on the break
water below Mount Coffin. The Shaver
haa In tow two large barges and the
necessary appliances to be used In rais
ing the steamer. The members of the
Shaver Transportation Company, to
whom the Dixon belongs, do not antici
pate any great trouble In pulling her
oft, as her stern is submerged In fifteen
feet of water, though her bow rests on
the dike. It Is not known to what ex
tent she Is injured, though it Is thought
the hole stove In her bow Is large. It
was first stated that the craft struck
during a fog. but one of the crew ar
rived from the scene yesterday morn
ing and stated the accident waa due
to the fact that the light on the dike
was not burning, and the skipper
thought he was clear of It.
