A Gay Deceiver at the Star Theatre
Will be Repeated.
The management of the Willard Com
pany takeg great pleasure in announcing
that on account of the many requests
from the patrons of the Star theatre
for the reproduction of the great
comedy success, "A Gay Deceiver" it
will stage this side splitting comedy to
night and continuously until Friday
evening. "A Gay Deceiver" was one of
the first productions in this city, by the
Willard Company, and ever since the
production request after request has
been made for its reproduction, and it
being the sole object of this company to
please its patrons, this determination
has been made.
For Saturday's matinee and night,
"Uncle Tom'g Cabin" will be produced.
For Sunday's matinee and evening,
"Hick'ry Farm" will again be produced
by request. The coming week vaude
ville will hold sway at the Star
theatre, as it is the desire of Mr.
Gevurtz to run a vaudeville show
through regatta week. The present com
pany will resume their engagement the
following week, opening again in "Ole
Oleson."
Thursday morning the tug Dauntless
will take in tow on the Columbia River,
bound for San Diego, the first raft of
sawlogs in the history of coast lumber
traffic. The raft is cigar-shaped and
some of the timbers of which it is made
are four feet in diameter. It la esti
mated that the tow will contain 3.000,
000 feet of lumber.
For the past two years the Astoria
& Columbia River Railway Company has
been sending rafts of piling to San
Francisco. But. these were small tim
bers. The raft made of the Columbia
Valley's giant firs will be 600 feet long,
50 feet wide and 32 feet deep.
The big timbers are owned by the
Benson Logging Company, which is dis
patching the raft as an experiment. If
the venture proves a success the com
pany will build a sawmill plant at San
Diego and make it a business of trans
porting logs down the coast.

Tatoosh picked up the little schooner

but will go first to Portland, and ship
her $6000 worth of seal furs direct to
London, and will then load out for San
Francisco. She had fair winds all the

trip of it All were well on board. She

told. She brought some mail down.

PERSONAL MENTION.
WATER IS PURE.
Eugene's Water Supply Free of Typhoid
Germs, According to Analysis.
A circular which is being sent out b
the Eugene Commercial Club, seeks to
show that there is now no danger of
typhoid fever from the city's water sup
ply, the impurities being now removed
by means of filters lately installed. Last
spring the town suffered severely from
an epidemic of typhoid fever, brought
on by the use of impure water. The
improvements now installed are as
serted to have removed any further dan
ger from this source, an analysis of the
water now supplied the residents of
Eugene shows the water to be uncom
monly pure. The report made relative
to the test is as follows:
Portland, Or., Aug. 13, 1!)0(I.
Dr. Robert C. Yenney, State Health
Officer. Portland, Ore.
Dear Sir The examination of the
specimen of water from Eugene sent by
Da Harris shows no contamination.
There was an absolute failure to pro-
uce gas or even growth in fermenta
tion tubes. Plates inoculated with
varying quantities of the water failed
to develop a single colony on any one.
The result is most remarkable and I
fear an error somewhere before the
ater arrived here. It would be well to
know just how this water was collected.
Even the purest water usually show
some growth. Your very truly,

SEVEN CASES OF ALLEGED SHANG
HAIING ARE NOW BEING IN
VESTIGATED BY GOVERNMENT
SECRET SERVICE AGENTS.
A dispatch from Seattle says the
United State fiovernment is after the
crimp of the Northwest. Secret er
vice men are now at work gathering
evidence, and it is believed that several
member of the clique that controls the
sailors' boarding-house of Seattle, Ts
coma and Port Townsend will lie
brought before the next meeting of the
Federal firand Jury. Seven case of al
leged shanghaiing are now under inves
ligation by the authorities. Not only
will the principals in the clique of Puget
Sound crimps be dealt with, but the
master of vessel, mate and all who
hove leen concerned In the traffic will
be prosecuted.
The crimps know that the secret ser
vice men are on their trail, and last
Friday four of the lender representing
boarding-house in Seattle, Tacoma
Port Townsend and Vancouver, I). C,
held a meeting in Seattle. It i said
that some of them are anxious to get
out of the business, and are only pre
vented by the agreement which binds
them. It is understood that Friday's
meeting was for the purpose of listen
ing to a proposal for withdrawal from
the Tacoma representative of the clique.
The (iovernment men are not work
ing on Puget Sound alone. Others are
busy in Astoria, Poi-tlund and San
Francisco. The Canadian government is
pursuing a similar investigation,
The Government was prompted to its
present activity by the recent case of
the British ship Morven at Port Town
send. An attempt was made to steal
three of the Morven' sailors, and the
fight which ensued resulted in the death
of Harry Stubley, a boarding-house
runner.

NKV YORK, August 21,-Quan Ton
kin, a Chilean civil engineer, who I now
In New York, said last night:
"In Valparaiso local and foreign In
terest are so great that It I abso
lutely certain that the city will be re
built. The financial burden of rehabili
tation will not be thrown on Chile alone
but also on the numerous foreign inter
est which include most of the nation
of the world. Of the foreign interests,
I believe the Knglish will he the hfhv
iest loser, especially the many Kngliili
lire Insurance companies that suffers 1
such great losse n the destruction of
San Francfco. However, It must be
kept in mind that Chile enjoy very
high financial credit, especially In the
London market, where her bonds are
quoted at W per cent. The external
debt of Chile is about (110.1,000.000 which
ha alwny been scrupulously served,
and It take only 12 per cent of the
Chilean government revenue to servo
this debt. The Chilean state railway
alone represents nearly as mmh a the
external debt, while the salt pet re lands
represent four or five times n mucu
more."
