Can't Account For It
Senator J. C. Meglcr, with Mrs.
Meglcr, spent th day in this 'city
yesterday, on matter of business and
pleasure. Mr. Meglcr says that the

dition of affairs he cannot account
for upon any known hypothesis. "
Two guns and over three dozen
graphaphone records, which were
stolen from the residence of F. A.
Fisher have been located. They were
found in a pawnshop in Portland and
Mr. Fisher left up on Tuesday night's

authorities have as to the identity of
the thief. ,

Bids Due Tomorrow-;
The call for bids uttered by the
Astoria Water Commission for the
construction of the new 20,000,000
gallon reservoir are to be opened to

is expected that there will be bids
ubmitted from Astoria, Portland and
Seattle in this behalf. There are those
who aver that the estimated cost sent
in ny Engineer Kelly at $103,000, is
actually too low, and that the bidding
is to range considerably above that

Commission will pass the matter up

New Time Schedule

time table of the A. & C. R. R. Co.

ter, the night train leaving Portland

ent, arriving here at 9:40 instead of

cars will be taken off the trains. The
company would continue the dining
car service but as these cars are own
ed by the N. P. R. R. and leased to
the A. & C. the latter company will

Drill Last Night
The First" Company, Coast Artil

at their armory. The attendance was
fair and those present showed the re
sults of their past work and interest,
by their improvement. On next Wed

expected. On Sunday, October 11th,
target practice will begin and on that
day and on each Sunday following a
section of the company will have
practice at the targets, making a full
company practice for the month.

authority that Hugh McCormick has
negotiated all the indebtedness pend
ing against the machinery end of the

it, Mr. Magner being a warm per
sonal' friend of Mr. McCormick's.
Just how far this intervention goes
toward mitigating the troubles of the
Pacific Coast Oil & Gas Company,
cannot yet be determined. Those in
near interest with the business want
ed Mr. McCormick to take over the
general management of, the business,
but this he declined to do as he did
not care to commit himself to affairs
with which he was unfamiliar in
