ABSOLUTELY NEW TELE
PHONE SERVICE FOR
Yesterday's 11:40 express from
Portland brought to this city, three
prominent officials of the Pacific
States Telephone Company, namely,
David S. Murray, general superin
tendent of plants; C. W. Burkett,
chief engineer, both from San Fran
cisco; and Charles W. Reynolds, di
vision superintendent of plants, with
headquarters in Portland. These gen
tlemen came to Astoria for the ex
press purpose of closing the contract
for the immediate construction of the
company's new headquarter building
in this city and assuring an early start
on this and all other matters of gen
eral improvement guaranteed for the
The contract for the construction
of the fine headquarter station on the
company's Exchange street property,
between Eleventh and Twelfth streets
was awarded yesterday afternoon to
Messrs. Ferguson & Houston, from
among the four bids heretofore filed
in this behalf by the firm above nam
ed, by Charles A. Palmberg, by Lean
der Lebeck, and by Axel Johansen,
the figures of the several bids, includ
ing those of the successful firm, being
withheld by the Pacific States people,
General Superintendent Murray
said yesterday, in the course of an in
terview, that "the new building, un
der the terms of the contract, must
be begun by Monday next, and de
livered to the company, completed, at
the end of 0 days, or by December
1st, next; that the money has been
appropriated for this and all other
mprovements to the system in As
toria, including new instruments, new
switchboard, new equipment, through
out, and entire, all to be installed as
soon as the new building is ready;
that he hoped to be able to start the
installation of the new apparatus, in
part, by November ISth, completing
everything, wholly, and perfectly by
New Year's Day; that, included in the
new scheme of equipment, would be
at least $20,000 worth of additional

ready done, and that this would Icav
the heart of the city divested utterly
of the single strings of -wires, the
open wires all coming down.
Mr. Murray said, further, that the
contemplated improvements would in
elude two additional long-distance
circuits out of Astoria, thus giving
her special and direct service, through
Portland, north, cast and south, which
will minimize all delay in that de
partment of the business; that, in
cluding the recent cabling here, and
all that is. now 'Co be done for the
Astoria service, would cost approxi
mately, $100,000, and would give the
city practically, an absolute new serv
ice, and strictly up-to-date; and that
what he had said must be accepted as
fact, and not promise; the money was
available and would be used for this,
the purpose for which it had been
set apart by the company." "
Division Superintendent of Con
struction Charles W. Reynolds, of
Portland, will be in immediate charge
of the Astoria work, until it shall be
finished and turned in as part and
parcel of the company's system.
Messrs. Murray and Burkett left

press last evening. ,

HONG KONC, Aug. 26.-Admiral
Li, of the Chinese navy, , with his
flagchip and several gunboats, sai!cd
from Wuchow today for Canton tak
ing with him as prisoners sixty of the
mutinous soldiers from Konhaw
vl:cre a thousain! men revolted on
August 12, killing their commander
and several others, routing a force of
loyal soldiery from a nearby town and
finally withdrawing- to the mountain
of Taiking where they joined forces
with the wild tribes of the hills.
Admiral Li's prisoners were taken
by means of the villagers at Kong
haw, who betrayed them into the
hands of the government forces for
2S taels (about $17) a head. The re
bellious soldiers spoke a strange dia
lect and their detection and subse
quent betrayal to the authorities was
an easy matter.
At Wuchow the gates of the city
which have stood open, for weeks
past have now been closed owing to
the disturbed state of the country fol--t,
lowing the mutiny at Konghaw. ;
