LONG TRIP OF
U Fontaine Reaches Port From
Antwerp After a Passage of
WAS DELATED OFF THE HORN
Brings Full Carfoof Ceniejut, INg
Iron etc. Chinese Commer
cial Company to Sur.
Th French bar La F&ntalne, Cap
tain H amort, arrived la port yesterday
afternoon after' a Ion passage from
Antwerp. Pllo Archie E. Cann went
aboard the vessel yesterday ana
broufht , her Into the lower harbor,
where she was toarded by the customs
and health officials. She Is still tying
below the city, f , ,
The La Fontaine comes with a gen
eral cargo for Meyer. Wilson A Com
pany. She leftj Antwerp 191 days ago
and stopped for a day at Cherbourg
France, from which port she departed
It? days ago. Captain Hamuli reports
that his long paseaje was without Incl
dent, except fer the difficulty which
he experienced In rounding Cape Horn.
He was 60 day in getting around the
Horn, but aft reaching the Pacific
made a spankfng run up the coast.
AU of his trouble was encountered on
the other side,' where he had to con
tend with poor winds. Despite the
long passage of La Fontaine, she was
not placed on the overdue list.
She brings a cargo consisting of
cement, pig Iran and other such stuff.
and it la understood that the entire.
cargo will be unloaded at Portland.
Dr. Earle, quarantine officer of this'
port reports that the vessel brought1
a clean bin of health. Ta Fontaine
ia the cleanest ship that has entered
this harbor since my connection with
1 the local office.". Dr. Earle said last
night. She Is perfectly maintained,
and looks as neat as a pin."
' La Fontaine Is a well known French
man, and has made this port on two
ore vioua occasions, taking out wheat
cargoes. , '
PLEASED WITH THE CHINOOK
Bar Dredge Said to Be The Finest Ves
se) of Its Kind In Service. '
The announcement from San Fran
cisco that the bar dredge will soon pro
ceed to Mare island to be repaired was
' of much local Interest When the Chi
nook was, being made into a dredge
the work did not progress as' rapidly
a was desired, and so much complaint
resulted that she was sent to Astoria
really before she was entirely prepared
for the big task which the government
undertook, with her. .
' It has been known for some time the
Chinook's boilers were In need of re
pair, and it ia probable that, she will
be sent to San Francisco more on this
account than because of any alterations
necessary in" ber"dredglng gear. The
work of the .Chinook' at this port Is
taken by government officials to demon
strate the usefullness of vessels of her
, olass, and the statement Is made that
'she has given better results than any'
other vessel of her class in the service.
That she should have made this record
for herself at the mouth pf the Colum-
bla river is a source of much aatls
faction locally. The announcement con
tains the statement that the value of
the Chinook win be greatly enhanced
' by some alterations to ber pumping
apparatus. There still remains in the
fund provided for her alteration Into a
dredge I3B.00O, and this sum Is now to
' be expended on her. So well pleased
; are the government officials with ber
work that other vessels of her class
are to be buillt
The Trouble 8ettled.
The Oregonlan says: Major Lang
fitt went to Astoria last Wednesday
to quell a dispute that had arisen be
tween Captain Dunbar and Chief En
gineer Llndley. The captain had In
sisted upon the discharge of a certain
man in the englneroom and the chief
engineer had resisted and cold weather
came between them.- Major LangfUt
calmed the troubled waters and as
signed anchorage to each of the officers
so that In the future they will prob
ably not drift afoul of each other.
Msbls Gale's Hsrd Luck.
The lumber schooner Mabel Gale ar
rived In port yesterday, and but for a
streak of hard luck would have made
a record passage between San Francis
co and Astoria for vessels of her class. ,
She left the Bay City on the 15th Inst
and four days later'arrived off the Co-
tumble, having been driven up the coast
by the strong breeae prevailing at that
time. When she arrived oft the Heads
stormy weather kicked up a rough bar.
and for three days the schooner was
compelled to beat around outside, her
crack trip thus having been spoiled.
Captain Johnson was a pretty angry
ittaa when he found that he couldn't
get In on record time, but consoles him
self with the thought that he will per
haps have better luck on his next trip
north. ' The schooner comes for a lum
ber cargo. ,;,

SNOW, ICE AND FLOOD

Buffalo, N. T., Jan. IS. Within the
past 24 hours western New York has
been subject to meteorological con
ditlons such aa have not prevailed here
in a score of years and the situation
now s terrifying tne resiaems vi w
low lying sections, particularly In the
river valleys in the Hood district south
of .Buffalo. After a heavy fall of wet
snow lasting all day the temperature
fell below freezing, then rose again and
a heavy rain set In, which still contin
ues. " Owing to the fact that Ice has
formed beneath the snow. anf all the
streams are ice-bound, there ia no op
portunity for pie water to aoak Into the
earth or to pas away readily through
the natural channels, and the conse
quence la that unless the temperatare

Helena, Jan. 22. Harry Pllcher of
Marysvllle is In the city Investigating a
story sent out frfcm here by an en-,

have been started as a Joke, .stated
that Mr. Pllcher was a woman mas

Mr. Pllcher left Maryvllle some time
ago and went back to his old home In.
Kentuck . During his absence the story
was started and sent to one or two of
the eastern papers. Now Mr. rucner is
looking for the writer. ;
Yesterday he secured an apology
