Captain Cochran, owner of the Maim
er Telephone i the happiest nun In
Portland today. As told in the Astor
iaa the race between the Charlea R.
Spencer and the Telephone came off yes
terday and the latter won handily. Tiie
boats left Portland at the same time
yesterday morning and moved along
easily until the mouth of the Columbia
waa reached. There the Spencer took
the lead, while the Telephone adopted
teasing tactics and kept just astern
of the Spencer until Lady island was in
Bight, when, without apparent effort,
the Telephone passed the Spencer and
easily maintained the lead until the
locks were reached arriving there seven
minutes in the lead.
Both boats were loaded with excurs
ionists and these entered into the spirit
01 the race with such enthusiasm that
they overlooked the scenery along the
banks of the Columbia river. The Charles
R. Spencer did not go through the locks
and the Telephone had no chance to
show what she could do on the return
trip. . .

land on the 'steamer Lurline last even

terday, on the noon tide.
The powerful towing steamer Okla
hama left up yesterday at noon with
the schooner Owkland and F.thel Zane
on her flanks.
Now that the Telephone has done the
Spencer up. it is appropriate that a
river race be called as between Uie
Telephone and the Telegraph. Their
"circuits don't jibe for the purpose, it
is true, but the Telegraph might take a
day off, just for the sake 01 tieatlng Her
only rival in northwestern water. It
is up to Captain Scott. Astoria knows
both boats and will take "tangible" in
terest in the event.

The steamer Wenona, Capt. Ilulse.

consigned to Aug. Byyny, at Gray's
River yesterday, at 4 o'clock, p. m.
It is said the high tide of Sunday
night shoved the stranded light ship
further upon lVaeock Spit, but not far
enough to materially impede the efforts
to be made to warp her into good water.
All detachable, visible fixtures of the
sunken light house tender, Manzanita,
were remove! yesterday, by her com
panion ship the Columbine, which went
up the river for that purpose yesterday
I he handsome steamer hlectro was

id insvtion yesterday by t. S. In

The American customs wale for meas
uring the tonnage of vessel, is somehow
never adaptable to ship and steamers
built in, French yards and flying the
French flag. This is almost traditional
in the local office here, and Is applicable
in a much smaller degree, to vessels of
British ami Cerman merchant fleets.
The French bark Rriacux is a case in
point. She is just in from Tasmania
ports, and her registered gross tonnage
is 2.302 tons, and this is abated by her
home government scale of deduction, by
tons, making her net tonnage 1,717
Her measurement was taken yesterday
under the American vale by the local
insKctor and she was allowed a de
duction of but 12 ton, which Increased
her chargeable tonnage fees to the tune
of on the 573 ton charged for
as cargo space. This made her amenable
to fees in the sum of $137.40 on 2iH.K)

The steamer Argo which run between
Point Kenyon and San Francisco went
ashore yesterday at Kel river bar. She
ha no passengers, but carries a heavy

Argo can I floated.
San Francisco, Oct. 0. A minute ex
amination of the hull of the steamer
Alameda by the marine surveyors show
ed the iv I extent of the damage to the
vessel. The ine-toni found that the
greatest damage sustained by the steam
er was on the port side where there i
greate-t puncture. It i seven feet in
length by two in width, directly under
the Mrt fuel tank. In the interior of
tne steamer it will be necessary to re
pair 40 frame. According to the in- j
spector, it will be necessary ot renew
22 plate and repair 04 others before
the steamer will lie in sea going condi
tion. The British balk Roderick Dim baa
been cliartered to bring wheat from Ta
coma or Portland to San Francisco at
2 per ton. She is to lie towed down
and back. This is the first time that a
ship has ht-en put into service between
these ports and under tow of a tug.
The British snip Port lxgan, now at
San Francisco, i chartered for wheat
from Portland to Europe at 27 Od.
A close investigation is to lie made to
fix the responsibility for the collision
between the I'nited State light house
tender Manzanita and the Port of Port
land dredge Columbia, near Westport
Saturday. There is question as to
whether the local in-twctoM of steam
ves-cls or the lighthoiisa department
will conduct t lie inquiry. No r-srt ha
been made at the ollh-e of Captain Ileil-
ner, light house inspector for this dis
trict, but a he is abent the matter
will probably be taken in charge of by
Captain Albert Ross, of the light house
board, who is in thi city. Captain Hay-
den, master of the Port of Portland tend
er John McCraken, which was towing
the Columbia at the time of the acci
dent has a license from the Portland of
fice and hi connection with the case
may result in the inspectors holding an
investigation. On the other hand, the
Manzanita is a government craft and
the Columbia is under charter to the
United State engineer corps, ho the op
inion is hazarded in some quarters that
only a naval inquiry will be made.
Spokane, Oct. 9. Rev. David Leland
Spaulding, a Methodi minister, HO
years of age,, died here yesterday. De
ceased came to the ' Willamette valley
in 1H54 and two years later joined the

night Saturday. He was a native of
Kentucky and at the time of his death
