and the weather thick. Two achoon
era, the Alvena and Oakland, had passed
in. The wires then went down, and no
new was obtainable until 2:40 p. ni.,
when the bar was reported as being
rough, and no vessels passing in or nit,
nor any sighted. It is thought that the
vessels due at the mouth of the river
: are keeping well out awaiting favorable
weather to cross in.

The three masted schooner Oakland,

60,000 barrels of flour for Japan, left
Portland yesterday morning at 8 o'clock
and arrived down at about 4 o'clock p.
m. She will cross out at the first oppor
tunity. The steamers Elgin and Stirathordj
before comins to this port brought
Pocahontas coal flor thel use of Uu
U. S. navy. The Strathord transferred
her cargo at San Francisco, and the
Klgin was relieved of hers at Sitka.
In the investigation into the accident

t Coos Bar on November 28th now lc
ing carried on in Portland, it developed
tht tlie vessel did not strike on the
lar but was struck by a heavy sea
Her rudder wa carried away and but
a part o' one blade of her propellor re
mains. She was plaved on the drydock
yesterday and a thorough survey iii.-ub
if the injuries. Slie will probably be
floated again by the lat of the week
and soon thereafter resume her trips.
The Breakwater will leave Portland
on Saturday the 14th at 8 p. m. for
Coos Bay. She was to have sailed last
night, but repairs, made necessary by
her recent accident, prevented her de
tartnre as scheduled.
The old standby. Cant, Larkiu and
the Lurline, reached the dock, on time,
yesterday evening, and left on the re
turn trip promptly at 7 p. m. A good
