The crew of the Homeward Bound,
twenty-three in number, have been paid
off at the federal custom house Siere,
it requiring the sum of 12.243.77 to
meet the demands. A certain percent
age of this turn found its way into the
municipal coffers yesterday, via the po
lice court route, aa seven of the men
were mulcted in various sums for con
duct incidental to the coming ashore of
a jolly crowd after a long deep-sea
passage. The Homeward Bound under
her old registry held a special Amer
ican license, but the Act of Congress
of June last, extends, to her complete,
registered license, which covers the
coasting trade, on which she will en
ter as soon as she is discharged from
her present charter.
A steamboat man in Astoria yester
day made the cold-blooded remark that
ing to the continued pressure of busi
ness on the banks, of the Columbia.
The German ship Xereide, Captain
Windhorst, was reported In at 3:20
o'clock yesterday evening. The Xereide
is supposed to have left Hakodate on
the 31t of August, last month, and
she must have done some yacht-like
sailing to reach this port in twenty-
six !' when from eighteen to twenty
one day are consumed by the steamers
on that run. She is of 1,700 tons reg
istry and will load Hour outward for
the Orient, from Portland.
The steamer Telegraph did her usual
round-trip spurt between Portland and
this port yesterday, carrying well both
ways, above and below stairs.
The British steamship Beckenham,
which left Astoria last month with a
cargo of over 3,000,000 feet of lumber,
has arrived at Shanghai, and the British
steamship Richmond, which left atiout
the same time, has reached Taku.
The steamer Harold Dollar, of the Dol
lar Steamship company, ha been char
tered to load lumber at Flavel for San
Francisco. She is at Seattle at pres
ent and will leave there for the O
lumbia River in a few days.
The crew employed on the steamer
Georce W. Elder went on a strike on
Tuesday, but their places were imme
diately taken by other workmen. The
strike did not affect the repair work be
ing done on the vessel, and she will
be ready to be taken to ber loading
dork in a few days.
The schooner F. S. Redfield which ha
been loading at the Tongue Point mills
"it was a darned rood thine for some with lumber for San Francisco, will
of the ateamers running here from leave out today with her cargo of 610,-
Fortland that there was a current in
the Columbia, or they might never get
nere at all." Why people will make
such such distasteful and obviously un
fair statements is more than the ma
rine reporter can account for. There
re lots of swift boats on the river
and there are some well, perhaps be
was right, after all!
lie fine steamship Roanoke will be
at the Callender pier tomorrow at an
early how in the morning, on her way
to Eureka, Sen Francisco and Los An
geles. She is doing an immense busi
ness both ways.
The sea going infant, the Delia, left
ont last night for Xestueca, with her
eustomary tonnage of freight
The towing steamer- Oklahoma ar
rived down yesterday from Portland
light, and went back up stream with
the French bark Genevieve Molinos on
The steamer F. A. Kilburn was smong
the arrivals from the California coast
yesterday, and she went directly on to
The fine bar tug Tatoosh leaves up
today for Portland, where she will have
her bottom scraped and painted.
The towing steamer M. F. HendersonJ
arrived down yesterday noon with the
schooner W. F. Jewett, lumber laden,
for California delivery.
The steamship Costa Rica is due
down from Portland, en route to San
Francisco, and will be at the O. R. &
N. pier at an early hour.
The steamer Lurline did not arrive
down last night until midnight, ow-

Fell to nu Death Another citizen of
Alderbrook met with a fatal accident
yesterday afternoon. His name was
Gust Peterson and he was a painter
by trade, and counted a good and re
liable man in all way, among the peo-
j pie with whom he has lived for some
years. He was painting the iront oi one
of the many new homes going up on
Franklin avenue, just beyond the Clat
sop mills, and was on a ladder, the
ladder being upon a swinging stage
about twenty feet above the ground.
The breaking of the ladder suddenly
precipitated Peterson to the ground be
neath and in falling he struck squarely
on the crown of him head, breaking his
neck and killing him instantly. His
partner in the work was on the stage
at the time and only saved himself by
clinging to the guy-ropes and clamber
ing slowly to the ground, where he did
all he could to aid his unfortunate!
companion, but without avail. Mr. Pe
terson was a native of Norway and was
about fifty years of age, and leaves a
family to mourn his sudden and terri
ble death. He had at one time fol
lowed the trade of a fisherman, but be
ing disabled from continuing it, had
taken up the easier work of painting.
The young people of the Preibyter
ian church will entertain their friends
at a social at the home of Miss Selma
Norberg on the corner of 54th and Ce
dar streets, two blocks from the east
end of the car line on Friday evening,
the 28th inst. Everybody welcome.
The football season of 1900 Is fast
approaching and the fraternity
looking forward with a critical eye to
what the changes in the rules of the
game will develop. It is practically
impossible to predict what will result
from the changed condition or what
style of play will prevail, though it is
conceded that there is great possibility
of improvement as far as openness of
the game is concerned. The rule making
punted ball after striking the ground
a "free ball' is undoubtedly the most
radical change and affords the great
est opportunity for development of the
kicking game, and the increase of the
yardage to be gained from 6 to 10
yards on three "downs' does away to
a great extent with the heavy mass
plays with chances of niore open spec
tacular end plays becoming a feature
Several other minor changes are made
tending to eliminate the degree of
roughness heretofore so general.
The "old guard" in this good city of
Astoria are bestirring themselves with
a view to organizing a team for the
season. Gamnial, Bay, Tully, Al Minard
and Harry and Roxy Graham form the
nucleus around which to form this year's
team, and with the material in the
city it is hoped to have a team as
good, if not better than the ones of
former year. The boys are looking for
a coach and hope to be able to induce
Mr. Smith to lend them bis time and
experience. Several good games dur
ing the season are in sight, including
the game with Multnomah, and thote
interested may look forward to see a
very successful season.

Terribly Injured At 3:15 o'clock yes
terday afternoon, at the Tongue Point
mills, there occurred another of those
unforseen and terrible accident that
seem inseparable from the business it
self when August Simi, a man of 52
years, who has been in the employ of
the company for the past year and
who is accounted a valuable man, had
the misfortune to fall into one of "nig
ger" slots in the floor of the mill, just
as one of those powerful agencies used
in the handling of the logs on the car
riage was due to return to its place
In the slot. The big and vicious thing
caught him just below the knee and
drove his limb clear into the apperture,
smashing and grinding it pitifully. Simi
made no great outcry, but is said to
have actually joked and laughed over
the wretched accident even while he
was pinned down.' He was released al
most instantly by the sawyer, who
ent with all dispatch to St. Mary's
hospital, where he went under the min
istration of Dr. .1. A. Fulton, who made
him as comfortable as circumstances
permitted, but who U very dubious
about saving the man's leg. Simi lives
at the eastern end of Ash avenue and
has a family consisting of a wife and
five children. He is resting easily.
Do You feel sleepy and not a bit
like working in the afternoon? Per
haps it's because of the kind" of lunch
you're eating too heavy an dtoo hard
to digest. Why not try the Palace
restaurant on Commercial street, where
all the baking is done in those famous
slow-process ovens, which turn out light,
appetizing, wholesome things? You'll
save money, too.
During the month of August, Mr.
Wentworth Lord and Mr. J. C Cran-
dall of The Dalles were in Aitoria, a
land-marking committee from the
Federation of Women's Clubs, to Inter
est trie woman's Club of Astoria In
marking the points of interest close at
hand, such as the site of Fort George.
Fort Ator, Shark Bock and other not
The next place of interest was Clat
sop, wnere tney were the guests or
Mrs. ami Miss Munson. Mrs. Lord has
written a book, "Reminiscences of Was
co County," and i gathering data for
a second book of early history.
The ftrt day after their arrival here
a trip was made to the old Taylor
place on the "Plains," and luncheon was
spread on the very spot where the
flrt school house in the county stood
and where the pioneer children went to
school. This place was near where the
Methodist Mission was first located in
1840, by Daniel Lee, Frost, and Kolo
mon H. Smith.
The next place vilted was the old
Pioneer Cemetery. The land was do
nated by Mrs. Xanry Morrison, as was
also the land adjoining for a Presbyter-
inn church, the flrt to be built In Ore
gon, me original structure ns long
since disappeared, as it was built some
time tn the fifties.
In the old cemeteries are the graves
of many of Oregon's well known pio
nees, among whom are Mr. J. F. Mor
rison, and his wife, Xancy Morrison,
Solomon H. Smith and wife, John Jew
ett and wife, Harriet Kimball Jewett;
Philip Gearhart and wife, Alva Con
dit and wife, D. E. Tease, Col. Ja.
Taylor and wife, John Thomas, B. C.
Kindred and wife, John Hobsop and
wife, and many more.
The day's research was ended with
a visit to the permanent location of
the Methodist Mission In 1841, on Utf
place now occupied by Alfred Longrlen.
W. H. Gray, who came to Oregon with
Marcus Whitman, in 18Hfl, was at one
time located at this Mission.
The second day was spent at Sea
side, where the salt cairnes of 1-ewis
4, Clark were visited. At Fort Stevens
an application was made fr wne old
cannon balls to decorate the historical
building at old Fort Dalles. The build
ing was the surgeon's quarters, when
the fort was well kept and is still very
much as it was in old days.
,Clalsop county is full of historic lore,
and unless an effort is made to locate
interesting points before all the pio
neers are gone, much valuable informa
tion will be lost, that should be pre
served religiously for the inspiration
of the coming generations.
