John R. Lathrop, one of the editors
ot the Portland Journal, came down
yesterday on the Undine, and irill be
In the city for a few days. For aome
Ume past all aorta of rumors have
been flying around aa to the future
fat of the Journal. It being stated
that Senator Simdh had secured con
trol ot It. and also that W. R. Hearst
would buy the plant. Mr. Lathrop was
aaked about the matter, and he said:
"Stories of this sort are without foun
dation In fact. The Journal has ample
financial backing and is controlled, en
tlrely by C. 8. Tackson, the managing
editor. Mr. Jackson ia supreme - in
all matters affecting the paper. Pur
ine the nast few weeks the manage
ment has teen considering the advis
ability of bettering the telegraphic ser
vice, and X am of the opinion that the
tt-it-. aorvlre will be secured. Our
now color Dress is being Installed und
' within a short time we will be able to
nrlnt a newspaper that will be a credit
to th state. We have met with much
encouragement thus far. and are sat
isfied that the Portland field offers an
oDenlng for an Independent paper
that will print the news."
Among the dispatches received by
'The Astorian yesterday was one telling
' of tne wreck of the bark Alex McNeil
which occurred last December. The
dispatch Is from Victoria, and reads:
"Details were received by the Empress
of India of the wreck of the bark Alex
McNeil, which was lost on Pratas reef
as was briefly cabled, when bound to
Port Townsend from Manila. She
left Manila on December 10 and 1J days
later piled up on Pratas shoal, which, j
by Captain Jorgensen's reckoning, j
should have been 60 miles distant. The
mate, Evans, and four seamen left In
the ship's boat to explore the reef and
nothing further was heard of them. At
low water the captain explored the reef
and fou.id the wrecks of half a dozen
other ships including a four masted
ship and a steamer. The reef stretch
ed for miles and at the western end
was a deserted fishing station with a
joss house and half a doien Chinese
graves. There was a deserted cablu
eontainlng pictures and articles which
mat have been secured from wrecks.
After several days spent on the vreck
the survivors started In their patchid
sp' cutter for Hong Kong. They were
four days at sea, suffering great pri
vations, when a Norwegian steamer
picked them ip and landed them at
The preliminary hearing of Henry
Johnson, charged with assault with a
dangerous weapon uponErlc Anderson,
- was conducted yesterday afternoon in
the court of the Justice of the peace.
C. 3. Curtis Is attorney for the defend
ant. Johnson was bound over for
further action under $150 toonds. He
was unable to furnish bail and so was
remanded to jail. There promises to
be developments in the case before to
night that will make It one cf the
most sensational that has occurred
in this seclton for some time. Up till
yesterday th casa appeared to be the
outcome of a drunken brawl, but there
is a story onw to the effect that John
son Is really guiltless n dthat the man
who committed the outrage Is at
large, but that a warrant Is out for
hi arrest and that today he will be
apprehended. This man, whoBe name
hits not been learned, was In company
with Johnson .md Anderson during
their carousal,, and he planned to rob
the prisoner, but In the darkness mis
took his man and Anderson fell a
victim to his deadly knife. In the
subsequent confusion he escaped and
neither the wounded nlan or the pris
oner were In a suitable condition until
later to make known the real facts of
the case. Attorney Curtis Is positive
as to the innocence of his client and Is
sure he will be cleared when the case
comes up for trial.
At the request of the stockholders
f a large amount of debenture bonds
and ipltal stock of the Pacific Pack

mittee has been chosen to undertake
the reorganization of the affairs ot the
company, says a dispatch yesterday
from New York. The committee will
oreDart an agreement of deposit which
will be. tiled with the Colonial Trust
company, a depositary, v Holders of
the debenture bonds and shares of
stock voting trust certificates of the
company art Invited to deposit their
respective securities and receive nego

posits therefor. Any depositor not as
senttng to the plan of reorganisation
when formulated will under the terms
ot th deposit agreement, have the

Thomas C. McGovern and George B.
Hallock were Monday appointed re
ceivers ot the company on application
ot the .Colonial Trust company as. a
creditor and R. Pfelffer, as a stock
holder. Owing to the light run last
year in Paget sound of the best and

WUIUm Bolster, otherwise the "Buf

at an early hour yesterday morning.
He had met with a severe accident at
Clifton, where he was engaged as
watchman on the bark Harry Morse,
and while at St. Mary's hospital was
attacked with erysipelas, resulting In
his death. "Red" was a character
who will be missed In Astoria. He Is
said "to have been" more than 55 years
of ae and had resided here for the
nut IS years. A native ot Ireland.
he had taken up his residence at Buf
falo on coming to America, and was
always intensely loyal to that city.
Bolster's sad end was due to drink.
Periodically he went on prolonged
sprees, and when his finances were ex
hausted he would approach an ac
quaintance and say: "Hello, there!
How Is the health? Were you ever In
Buffalo? No? Ah, she's a fine city!
And. I say, have you the price of a
drink on your Few Indeed are the
Astorlans who have not been greeted
with thla familiar salutation. At times
"Red" would sober up and go to work.
Occasionally he would work hard for
two or three months, snd then would
come one ot bis sprees. Before start
ing out, however, he always paid all
his debts. He was penniless when he
died, but Captain Reynolds ot the Har

decent burial. The funeral took place
