threw this country's "defy" in the
teeth of the Chilanos, at Valparaiso,
years ago, when he was but a lieutenant-commander
in the service, and
told them that "Spanish would be the

The Yorktown came up the bay im
mediately and dropped anchor off the
O. R. & N. pier, where she will lie
until the arrival of the U. S. cruiser
Charleston this afternoon, when both
ships will go up the river to Port
land. Captain Tom Patterson, of the
river pilot service is on the bridge of
the Yorktown. During yesterday af

The Yorktown is of 1710 tons dis
placement (with coal); ship's tonnage,
408 tons; cost, $450,000 ; 230 feet long;
36 ft bam; 14 feet mean draft; built
in 1889 at Philadelphia; is a single
screw, steel, schooner rigged vessel,
of 3392 indicated horse-power; and
her speed is 16.14 knots an hour. Her
fighting complement is 210 men.
The torpedo fleet is still on the way
up the coast and is expected in today
in time to join the larger craft in
the up-river flight. It is said the
Yorktown led them up the coast on
their departure from the Bay City,
and at one time, in order to expedite
their movement against the heavy
head sea, gave several of them a tow
line, but her power and the pounding
seas dragged the little black vessels
under water and they were glad to
let the line go and hustle into Eureka,
or Coos Bay or any other old port,
to escape the deluge; but they will
show up alright; there is no downing
the spunky destroyers and chasers.

One of his legs and his hip were

When he alighted the train had al

New York veterinarians have discov
ered that the dose of anaesthetics re
quired to put a rhinoceros to sleep
is a pound and three quarters of
chloroform and half a pound either
This accession of veterinarian science
was made during an operation to re
move cataracts in the eyes of Mogul,
the Indian rhinoceros in the Bronx
Zoo. Mogul, after succumbing to
mere' than half a gallon of anaesthe
tic remained under its influence for
an hour and at the end of that time
began to crunch hay as though noth
ing had happened.
Through a blow on the head in his
native jungle, Mogul nearly lost the
sight of both eyes, and the operation
was agreed upon after careful exam
ination. 'It will (ake a month to tell
if it is successful.
