The torpedo fleet is in port. The
Preble, Fox and Farraguet were in
the city channels by 4 o'clock, alright
after their heavy heading tip the coast
and their refuging in Coos and Hum
boldt. The Davis came in just be
fore sundown. It was reported that
one of the vessels was outside in
trouble, but this could not be verified.
They are all in port however, and
will leave up the river this morning.
They made an interesting display and
had plenty of reviewers from Smith's
to Tongue Point.
The steamer Nahcotta will make
her initial trip from the O. R. & N.
pier to Megler, the station of the
Ilwaco Railroad Company, opposite
this city, this morning at 7:30 o'clock;
and this will be the rule until further
orders, Sundays included. The rail
way line from Megler to Ilwaco is now
in good shape and ready for the sum
mer business to the beaches, the first
train on schedule passing over the
line yesterday morning.
It is authentically rumored that the
fine, fast steamer Bailey Gatzert will
enter the Astoria field on Monday or !
Tuesday next, when it shall be deter

the Spencer or against her. With

The steamship Rose City docked at
the 0. R. & N. piers last evening at
6:15. She had a big list of people and
a fair manifest of freight. She went
on to the metropolis at 8 o'clock.
The steamer Undine is sticking
close to her schedule ad carrying
well on both decks as usual. She took

Hackensack to memory of soldiers
and sailors who lost their lives in the
wars of tthc United States:

NEW VICE CONSUL.
SAN FRANCISCO, June l.-The
Japanese vice consulship in San Fran
cisco which was made vacant a few
days ago by the appointment of K.
Matsubara as charge d'affaires at
Chicago, will not be abolished as was
generally believed. From private
sources it was learned yesterday that
the government at Tokio had ap
pointed S. Takahashi for the position
and that the new vice consul would
soon set sail for San Francisco to
take up his new duties.
