The Lost Brooch, Some month ago a

long and conspicuously and offered a gen

some garments for overhauling by her

Funeral of A .A. Cook. Advice re
reived from Portland yesterday Indicate
that the late Archibald A. Cook, wha
died on Wednesday evening last, from
the reaction of an operation for appen
dicitis, had not been well for some time,
and was sojourning at St. Martin's
Springs, when hi condition became so
critical as to call for the operation whic'i
he mot unhappily failed to survive.
He will be buried from the St. Francis
church at Portland tomorrow morning at
0 o'clock, and it i said, a large party of
devoted Astoria friends will leave up
this evening to pay their final tribute
of honor at the obsequies,

who for the past six week has been

20 hands all told. The company will
manage the boarding quarter for itself
from now on.

Late on Wednesday afternoon last, at
Holnmii's Station, on Long Beach, Wash,,
one of the sadest accident, of the sea
son transpired, and eventuated in the
dreadful death of Roliert Neimus, an 18-year-old
jad, n of Mr. and Mrs. Peter
N'eimu. of Fast Third and Rurnslde
streets, Portland, and who was summer
ing on the northhore for the past few
In company with a group of young
friends Keimu's was watching the sunset
from the beach, the iqiectacle being un
usually brilliant that evening, and. with
three of bis companion, was (erched up
on a derelict log at the edjje of the
water-reach. Suddenly a wave of un
due proportion swung in and Its vol
iimne raised, and turned the log, and all
four of the young men made leap for
safety; all escaping but the subject of
this sketch, who was caught by the roll
ing log and pinned down to the sands;
and as the wave receded it did not carry
the huge stick from off bis limb, and
the combined effort of hi almost frantic
friend was unavailing to save him.
One or two ruhed up the beach for
assistant and the others stayed with him
in the vain hope that something would
happen to make bis release possible; but
long before help arrived the victim of
the accident was crushed and drowned
by the euceelon of breakers that rolled
in, working the log In its cruel and
crushing force, and choking back the bids
piteous screams with tidal rushes of
water. Ilia young friends were almost
beside themselves when the crowd that
had been summoned arrived on the scene
with tools and gar of all sorts to aid
in bis freedom.
The whole community was profoundly
Shocked at the peculiarly awful details
of the affair and the sympathy of the
hour made Itself manifest in the general
aid lent in preparing the body for burial
and for final despatch to the bereaved
home In the metropolis. The remains
will lie sent there today on the T. J.
Potter; the legal preliminaries having
been attended to in the Interim.

THOUSANDS OF FINE SALMON BE
ING CAUGHT IN MONTEREY BAY
OVER-STAYING THEIR TIME
Apropos of the salmon traditions of
this upper coast, that the gainey fish
for which this section is famous, al
ways touches in at Monterey bay, just
south of San Francisco, for a few weeks
More making the final migration to
these waters, the following taken from
the last number of the San Francisco
Bulletin, may be by way of accounting
for the present remarkable and deplor
able non-appearance of the vast schools
for which the northern fishermen and
cannery men are so patiently waiting,
and which may yet reach here in time
for the fall season. The Bulletin's
Monterey correspondent says:
Salt water angling on the Santa Cruz
and Capitola side of Monterey bay h:u
lieen exceptionally good for the past
two weeks. The fish most desired and
which furnish the best sport are the
giunnat salmon. These royal game fish
have leeu more numerous recently than
for several years past. In size the
average is a bit less than the grand fish
hooked about five years ngo. The
salmon are still swimming in schools
but will soon bunch and then head north
for the bay river, waters, etc., in order
to reach the spawning grounds. Mont
erey bay is at present full of enor
mous schools of sardines, upon
which everything larger in the water or
air down about that section feed upon.
Now and then there is n change in
the routine nnd the angler has either
an exciting adventure or pulls something
extraordinary out of the water. Mr.
and Mrs, Hiram K. Pierce, two popular
Oakland members of the smart set,
stopping nt the Sea Beach Hotel, are
both enthusiastic anglers and have made
several record catches of salmon this
season. Mr. Pierce on Saturday hooked
into an immense sun fish and had the
time of his life bringing the fish to gaff.
These bulky and curious sea creatures
use all head and pectoral fins, and ara
as inert, so far as a fight is concerned,
as a box of gum boots. From all that,
the handling of a fish of 700 pounds
weight requires skill and stamina. When
the big sun fish was towed to the wharf
it was the center of attraction for hours,
"Last Saturday Otto Feudner, Clarence
Naumnn and Ed Schultz, the local trap
shooting cracks, went out after salmon
and made a total catch of six salmon
and 12 barracouda.
"Miss Tillie Brohaska and Commodore
Taylor of San Jose caught 17 fish on
Saturday, Miss Brohaska' take was 1Q
4l h uva
' IS iB
salmon and one large halibut
"On Sunday William McCarthy, 0. A.
Hale, George Barker and Richard Bar
ker made a big catch, fishing with hand
lines from Mitchell's launch. !
"One of the best catches for several
weeks past was made yesterday by t
Clyde Drake of Vallejo, Billy Murdock j
and Harry Hoyt of this city and Billy
Sutton of Marysville. The party were,
fishing off the whistling buoy and landed '
20 Balmon in their boat."
