SOME PECUULIAR CODES DEM
ONSTRATED, AND HUMOR
Work upon the sunken oil barg.
Ma 91. in the lower harbor, has not
progressed s satisfactorily as Cap
tain Daniel and Stannard have de
sired but the arrival down yesterday
of the steamer Diamond O, with a
Urge and one of the biggest and best
f the Standard Oil Company' pump
ing otufits, relieved the situation some,
and the day was spent in attaching
and setting up the apparatus, and it
was gotten to work last evening, but
with just what success has not been
ascertained owing to the lateness oi
the hour of getting it started. At all
events the big barge is not as badly
off as before the Maverick undertook
the work of pumping her out, and, was
rising slowly yesterday, and it is hop
ed to clear the four tanks yet intact
and put her practically upon an even
keet, or in such shape as to permit
her being towed to the nearest dry
dock. The big pumps attached yester
day it is said threw a stream eight
inches in diameter, of water; bat
what it is doing with the heavy oil is
yet to be learned.
The Chirles R. Spencer arrived
down yesterday on her new schedule
yesterday, with 24 people in her ca
bins and a grist of local freight. While
ere Captain Charles R. Spencer, not
ing the death of "Chief Spencer" of
the Klickitats. over on the Sound,
framed up a postal card of condol
ence to his father, Captain E. W.
Spencer, of Portland, commiserating
with'him on the "loss of his grand
The steamer Diamond O came
down the river yesterday morning
with a barge load of gravel for the
cement makers at Fort Stevens, and
incidentally she brought a powerful
pumping outfit for use on the Stand
ard's submerged oil barge. No. 51.
The steamer Lurlinc was down in
good season yesterday evening and on
the tip-trip had the following people
on her register: A. B. Haniman, Mrs.
R. Rogers, C. H. Glass, C A. Ben.
and X. F. Williams.
The steamer Sue H. Elmore was
the first and earliest craft to leavi
this port yesterday, going out to Til
lamook Bay ports, with a big load of
freight and plenty of passengers.
The steamer Nome City arrived
down early yesterday morning, from
up-rivet points, and after a business
call at the Callender dock, went on

the rooms of an energetic individual
i in the Bronx, recorded in the Rogues
Gallery as No. 500. He was detained
in the hope that he may explain a re-

ment says among other things: "The

knowledge of all the different kinds
of safes, their platings, paddings, etc.
so that once you have a practical idea
of how to blow one you are there all
right. The "burglar-proof safe is
the simplest going in the world to
get to. They are generally made with
an oval tumbler, but the bolt is so
constructed that you can't do it on
Here follows a line of instructions
on "How to Insert the Dope." and
"How to Get into a Safe." It advises
against going through the back, as it
is likely to be of solid material with
out packing and the contents of the
safe may be blown up with the ex
plosion. The foregoing is but
sample. Before concluding the
writer gives minute details as to the

Old Coney Island.
NEW YORK. May 18-WillarJ
Ralph, 22 years old, a son of the late
Julian Ralph who was prominent as a
magazine writer, is in a critical con
dition today in Coney Island Hospital
from a bullet wound inflicted by him
self under peculiar circumstances.
While walking along Surf avenue

none went to his aid and Ralph walk
ed to a drugstore, a half block away

found letters which the police declar

WASHINGTON, May 18-Rep-rssentative
Kendall of Iowa yester
day presented to the House in the
shape of a bill his ideas in regard to
the desirable labor legislation. The
bill provides that no restraining order
or injunction shall be issued in labor
disputes unless the order or injunction
shall be clearly necessary to prevent
such irreparable injury to property
rights as cannot be adequately redres
sed by law and then only after pre
vious written notices ot tne appiica
tion shall have been served on the
person cited as the party to be re
strained or enjoined and who, it i
provided, shall have due opportunity
to aooear and answer. The bills also
restrict labor unions from the opera
tion of the Sherman anti-trust law bv
providing that no agreement between
two or more persons or between
parties involving the terms or condit
ions of employment, shall be held to
constitute a conspiracy unless the act
or thing to be done or not done,
would be unlawful on the part of any
The Human Appetite.
Of all the whimsical, shifting, unre
liable, treacherous, exacting things 'n
the world, the human appetite for the
right thing to eat is, perhapi, the
most unreasonable and Imperious.
There are those who humor it; oth
er who defy it; and all men are more
or les inclined to treat H with con
sideration. To find a place where
these varying attitudes may be fos
tered, at the least cost in each case,
and yet keep the appetite in proper
and peaceful subjection, is alwayi
desirable information. One place that
is conceded as perfectly adapted t
this, is the Palace Restaurant, just
opposite the Page building, on Com
mercia! street, in this city. Try t
once, and oatronize it always: thst is
the rule of the Palace.
