The heavy blow which prevailed
Thursday night quieted down some
what yesterday, but the bar was very
rough and there were no movements
In or out of the harbor. The Alliance,
laden with grain and earning a lS
number of passengers, could not get
out yesterday, and will await modera
tion of the weather.
Shipping men who were down to the
mouth of the river yesterday state
that the bar was unusually rough, a
heavy swell having been on during the
entire day. Several vessels are in port
and ready for sea, but none dared at
tempt the trip yesterday. During the
day nothing was reported tn the off
Only meager advices have been re
ceived of the extent of the damage
which was wrought further down the
coast From what little has been
learned, however, It Is evident ship

able extent Local shipping men are
anxious to learn how the tug Daunt

Grace Dollar, managed the heavy blow.
There Is no concern for the steamer,

expected the tug will have more or

with the demands of the engineers,
and at last advices there was no Im

Indications are that the trouble will
continue for some time, and that there
will be a scarcity of small tonnage.

May Load at Portland.
It Is now very probable that a ship
ment of government oats will be made
from Portland to the Philippines on
the British steamship Inverness, which

Captain Jesse M. Baker, distributing
quartermaster at Portland, has receiv
ed a telegram from Washington ask
ing if oats can be carried safely with
lumber and if so how large a ship
ment the Inverness can take out. This
matter Is now being Investigated, and
an answer will soon he given, u is
said there is no question as to the
practicability of shipping oats and
lumber on the same vessel and alt that
has to be really inquired Into Is to de
termine the quantity of oats that can
be handled. Mr. Taylor, of the firm
of Taylor, Young & Co., local agent!
for the steamer, says It is his opinion !
that the vessel will carry, In addition
to the lumber shipment, about 2500
tons of oats, the full amount that the
original contract called for.

WILL CURTAIL TONNAGE.
One Effect of Fight Between Engineers
and Steamer Managers.
The difficulty between the Steam
Schooner Managers' Association and
the Marine Engineers' Association will
have the effect of curtailing the grain
shipments from the Columbia river to
San Francisco. For months past sev
. eral small steamers have been regu
larly engaged In carrying to San Fran
cisco grain which should be sent away
from the Columbia In foreign bottoms,
but among the vessels tied up at Oak
land creek since the trouble between
the managers ana engineers are a
number which have been on the Co
lumbia river run out of the Bay City.
The Alliance, now ready for sea, takes
750 tons of wheat below, and the Au
relia, now loading, will take an add!
tlonal 500 tons.
Anions: the other vessels billed to
come north for grain were the Aber
deen, Prentiss, Redondo and Francis
Leggett, all of which have been laid
up because of the misunderstanding
at San Francisco. The managers have

Portland, although no definite an

the time of her departure.

slow thus far during the month, and

cleared. It is now certain March will

when the last report was received from
the mouth of the river, the wind was
blowing JO miles an hour. The bar
was reported at that hour to - have
been extremely rough.
The launch Panther left up the river
yesterday for Eagle Cliff, to be used
as a cannery tender. The trial trip
of. the Panther showed that she wasi
fully up to expectations, and her own
ers are well satisfied with her.
It was authoritatively stated yester
day that no damage of consequence
resulted to the jetty during the last
hard blow, but that a few piles were
carried away where the gap was re
cer.tly torn in the breakwater.

Smallest City in America.
"Most cities nowadays are regarded
as being small If they do not contain
more than 10,080 inhabitants. observed
a man from Missouri, "but I came from
a city that cannot boast of having a
population of more than 160 souls.
"The name of this unique little city Is
Fenton, and it Is situated on the pictur
esque Meramee river, Just fifteen miles
to the south and west of St. Louis.
"Fenton Is not a lively or busy town,
but In the absence of real metropolitan
activty the residents are proud of the
fact hat they live In the smallest Incor
porated city In the United States, If not
In the world. The municipal govern
ment consists of a mayor and a full
quota of civic officials, none of whom
are paid salaries. Instead of fixed In
comes they receive, certain fees for the
performance of their specific duties.
The board of control Is in charge of one
man who keeps the books of the cor
poration, and the public funds raised
by taxation are expended by the mayor
in person, by and with the consent of
"The city marshal constitutes the en
tire police force of the city. No ar
rests are made In Fenton, and tt has
been so long since the squire held court
that when the last magistrate died, last
summer, It was not cosldered neces
sary to elect his successor. There are
no politics In Fenton at least not In
so far as municipal elections go. And
for that matter there have been no
elections for more than a decade."
