Severe Gate Howls Along North
Coast and Prevents De
partures, ABERDEEN IN THE OFFING
Couldn't Get In Because of Tho Bt
Lumbar Shipment For tho Week
Roach Almott Four Million
A (rent atorm u raging alone tho
North IVclflc coast last night, and tho
in-Ilcattons are that It will continue
for some time to come. So severe was
the jraie yesterday that shipping was
parulyvied and not a single movement
was reported In' or out of the harbor.
At (.30 last night It was reported
that a gale was howling along at a veloc
ity of ? miles an hour, and that the
wind hns been Increasing In velocity tor
tYlrtny afternoon a steam schooner
was reported off tho Heads, and as yet (
she hns failed to make port. Tho vea
1 was reported by the North Ileal
lookout. She came up to the mouth of
of the river and was In sight until
darkness settled down. Yesterday the
vessel evidently did not again put In
an appearance, for she was not re
norted from the Heads. The steam-
la believed to have been the Abe'r-I
deen. which was due Friday night from
San Francisco. She comes to take the
run of the Alliance, which is laid up
at San Francisco for repairs on her
arrival there from this port.
The Aberdeen has doubtless been
blown to the north by the gale, but
tbe'e is no concern tor her. as she Is
wen able to weather the blow. It Is
expected she will show up again off the
river as soon as tho gale moderates.
The storm has tied up shipping and
several vessels are in port waiting for
tho gale to subside. The steamer Al
liance, grain laden, went down to the
lower harbor Friday night and took an
chorage, and the Despatch remained
at her wharf until yesterday afternoon
and then nroceeded to the lower har
bor. Several lumber schooners are al
so weather bound . "

SOUND CAPTURES TRADE.
San Francisco and Portland Falling
Back In Commercial Trade
:The San Francisco Call of January
? has an Interesting article showing
tho exports of the several coast orts
to Alaska and tho Philippines. Tho
statistics gathered by the Call are tak
en from tho government renorta. In
speaking of tho matter the Call says:
'The first fact for observation Is
that the Puget sound cities are gaining
strongly In the race for the business
of Alaska and the Philippine. The
customs returns just at hand show
that the Pacific coast shipments to Al
aska have Increased since ls8 from
SISS.OOO to J13.457.0O in 1S0I. - During
the fiscal year ending June 1. 1J0S.
the value of shipments from tho Pa
Cine const to Alaska amounted to 19.
I6S.804. Of this amount Puget sound
set out 8.1J8,0S. San Francisco t,
655,541 and Portland and Astoria SITS,
"The value of shipments of all goods
from the United States to the Philip
pine Islands during the nine months
ending September S0.1903, was IS.S09.

corresponding period In 1WS. Tho, fol

"The Igares from official sources
have Just been received by Eugene
Ooodwln. director of the Pacific Corn-
mewlal museum, and be la making a
compilation for a bulletin to be Issued
for the benefit of the business com
munity. Concerning the falling off In
exports from San Francisco and Port
land to the Philippines In 190S Mr.
Goodwin says that It may bo account
ed for In part by the establishment ot
direct steamship service between Se
attle and Manilla and the large ship
ments of lumber and forage from Se
attle. The values of auch shipments
during the nine months ending last
September were as follows: Oats, $187.
815: hay. $166. 892. lumber. $440,683.
The significant fact Is that the Puget
sound ports are increasing their ex
ports not only to Alaska but also to tho
orient at tho expense ot San Francisco,
prlent at the expense of San Francisco."
Goodwin from- official sources showing
Ike values of the principal commodities
shipped to Alaska from Pacific coast
points during July, August and Sep
tember last and also affording a com
parison with the shipments during the
summer of 1901. These shipments dur
ing tho months of July, August and
September In 1902 amounted to $2,249.
429. and In 1903 to $2,501,273. The
shipments from Pufcet sound were $1.-
7D,9fO in 1902 and $2,070, 901 In 1903.
In the same period San Francisco Is'
credited with shlpnents valued In 1901
at $160,437. and In 1903 at $438,372. U
will he observed that shipments from
Puget Sound Increased during the per
of three' months in 1903 as compared
with the same months In 1902 to the
extent of $282,000, while those from
San Francisco decdeased $30,000."
Loss of the Clellsm.
News of the loso of the steamship
Clellam was received In Astoria yes-
tet day morning, and details of the dis
aster were anxiously awaited by the
people of the city. It was considered.
remarkable that so few 6f the passeng
ers had been saved with two tugs stand
log l,y, anJ the belief was general that
first reports of the wreck had been.
exaggerated. However, the death list
Is an appalling one. Because of ihe ter
rible gale that raged at the time of the
wreck, the tugs were unable to rescue
many of the passengers. Purser rank
Freer, of Clallam, was among the saved.
He was formerly purser of the oriental
liner Monmouthshire and was quits
well known In Astoria.
Paris Probably Lost.
All hopes for the overdue French bark
Paris has been abandoned and It Is
feared that she has foundered In a hur
rlcane in the South Pacific. The vessel
Is 246 days out from Hamburg for Hon
olulu with a general cargo, and has
not been heard from since the day of
her departure from the German port.
'flifie have been two recent additions
to the overdue list, reinsurance on both
twlng quoted at 10 per cent. The new
ove.'dues are the French berk Jeanne
Coroonnler, 160 days out from Swansea
for sJan Francisco, and the British ship
Martaban, which Is 116 days out from
Java for the Baradoea.
