Notwithstanding the wires from
North Head went down. early in the
storm game of yesterday morning,
there remained the wireless station
on Smith's Point to relieve the strain
.of silence, and last evening at 7:30
o'clock, the followng report from
North Head was registered at the
United Wireless station on that
point, by Operator "Fuzzy" Feralnd;
"Wind, northwest; blowing 35 miles
an hour; weather, cloudy; bar, rough;
and barometer, rising rapidly."
This was the only weather message
received from the Head yesterday,
and the Astorian is under obligations
to Mr. Ferland for its text.
He also reported that he had spok
en to the steamship Watson from San
Francisco to Seattle off Cape Falcon,
at noon, and she was making good
headway, but had heard nor seen
nothing of the Roanoke, due in this
At 7 o'clock last evening the United
Wireless picked up the Roanoke, then
off Yaquina Head, and making good
time in a rough sea and giving word
that she would dock here this morn
ing at 7 o'clock.
The gale did no especial damage at
either the United Wireless station or
" North Head. At the latter place the
wireless man had some trouble with
his "rat-tail" attennae, but aside from
this the station was intact.
Captain Bob Jones brought the
Delia in at midnight on Sunday from
the Nestucca country, laden as usual
with a full cargo- of cheese. The
-"pup" acted nobly in the howling gale
of the hour, and retains her record as
one of the smallest and best sea
boats on the Pacific coast. Her mas
ter complains that he had a narrow
shave in passing the end of the Gov
ernment jetty, which, being unmarked
at night by any light whatever, is a
menace to coast navigation, for craft
like his, and even larger, as there is
always plenty of water off there, but
no light to serve against the chance
of getting in too close. He says he
came in by aid of the phosphorescent
lights that play over the submerged
rocks that lie beyond the jetty-head
and with which he is intimately fa
miliar, but the danger lies in the ap-j
proach to the spot, which should be
guarded by some distinct light. j

The Callender steamer Wenona,
now serving the Gray's River Navi
gation Company, between this city
and Gray's River points, started out
yesterday in the midst of the big
blow, but when she got to the beacon
on the channel sands, Captain Hull
deemed it the better part of expe
diency to turn back to his dock and
remain there. The seas broke clear
over the stout little craft and it took
all the skill on board to keep her
headed into it, and then some to se
cure her hangs and life boats.
The .steamer Lurline was doing
business at the old stand last night,
without any signs of the gale on her.
She went up at her usual hour, boar
ing the following passengers from
this city: W. H. Sellwood, J. R. Mc
Alpine, Attorney Snelling, of Cath

Rose City entered port yesterday
morning early and docked at the O.

gers on boardand only a "baker's

ed it all night off the bar and entered
as soon as her master could pick up
his range-lights through the mist and
flying scud. She was very light, and
this made her roll for all she could
A couple of big barges, one belong
ing to the Callender Navigation Co.,
and the other to Mr. Stangland, got
adrift yesterday at the height of the
blow and went on a jamboree up
among the George and Barker net

boats and racks before they were
"snubbed" into shape and made fast

North Star belonging to the Alaska
Fishermen's Packing Company, of

warped back to her berth.

Down at the westerly end of the
city yesterday morning the seas broke
clear over the railway tracks of the

the road-bed would be seriously dis

it came to that pass.
The steamer Alliance was among
the get-aways from this port early on
Sunday morning and as she went
over the bar she must have run
squarely into the teeth of the nor
wester, but she is a stout boat and
made it all right to Coos.

of that day, San Francisco bound.
A PROPER SALARY
CHINOOK NEWSPAPER HAS A
TIMELY AND INTERESTING
ARTICLE ON SUBJECT. ;
The Chinook Observer in its issue
of last week has an editorial article
pertaining to Mayor Wise and the
question of paying the Mayor of this
city an annual salary. The article is
an interesting one and worthy of
reading by all. It follows, in part:
The Astorian is authority for the
statement that Mayor Herman Wise,
who has served two terms in Astoria
with credit to himself and those who
placed him in oince, does not want
the mayoralty again unless there shall
be rational compensation attached to
it, in order to cover the unavoidable
personal expense incident to it. ,,
The above is timely, and neceST
sary declaration from Mayor Wise,
and it should be seriously considered
by citizens and taxpayers who desire
capable and conscientious men to
serve them. The Astorian comes
nobly to the support of Mayor Wise's
utterance. " Mr. Wise as a merchant
and public-spirited citizen is more
widely known than any citizen on the
lower Columbia river. He is a man
who throws his whole soul into his
wort, whether there is pecuniary com
Jensation attached to it or not. He is
generous to a 'fault, both with his
time and his money, and he knows
the value of time and money better
than 99 men in 100. He has occupied
many positions of public trust, always
done his duty, and never a suspicion
of wrong-doing was ever entertained
or expressed. He has served the peo
ple, at a loss in a public capacity, and
it is no surprise that he makes the
above declaration when requested to
accept a renomination for an office
that is expensive and pays no salary.
There is a good deal of the "bum"
spirit in the public mind regarding
the compensation of officials, charges
for work done, and time and material
furnished. Many who roar loudly for
low prices and applaud gratuitous
public services are very exorbitant in
their demands when their personal
services or material are : required.
These persons are generally found
among that class who shout "graft"
the loudest, ? and are only satisfied
when some man, who is willing to
serve for the "honor", of the place,
volunteers to serve the public without
charge. They would starve benovo
lence to death and then kick the vic
tim for being a fool. It may be set
down as good doctrine that' a man
who offers' his time and services to
the public gratis is a . grafter, and
those who accept such services are
also grafters, and the surest way to
cultivate and increase the grafter class
is to starve all the honesty out of
men by refusing to pay public serv
ants just and adequate compensation.

Thus far the Republicans have the

selves. Tom Loughery, John Welch,
Mr. Steffensen and Mr, Sherman, all
of whose candidacies have been an

day Mr. Kearney, the . incumbent,
when asked by a representative of the
Astorian if he will run again, did not
exactly deny the soft impeachment.
Mr. Kearney is also a Republican and
it is probable that he will be a factor
that all others will have to figure on

PILE. DRIVER IS
BELONGS TO L. LEBECK AND
WAS BEING TOWED UP
' The news was brought over to this
city last night that Lcander Eebeck's
piledriver had been driven on the
north shore and virtually lost. The
high winds threw the big mechanism
up on the shore and it listed so badly
that the engines and other mechanism
vere lost overboard, or else damaged
more or less. ... ''
The piledriver was being towed up
the river to Altoona on the lines of
the launch Teddy Roosevelt. The
high wiuds and rough waters proved
too much for the launch to handle the
great unwieldy piledriver and, ac
cording to the statements made last
night, it was forced up on the shore.
Mr. Lebeck came back to the city
last night. ' , ' !
The pile driver is a costly bit of
mechanism, but whether much pf its
machinery .may be saved is not
known. Much will depend, of course
on its location as regards the depth
of water, and'the like.
