I am glad to know that The Journal
intends to issue a Sunday morning edi
tion, and this thought Is shared by many
people with whom I have cojftvef sed
since "the Idea was' first suggested.
There 1b room tor it, and I have every
reason to believe that the enterprise
""win be eminently successful.' The Ore
ion Daily 'Journal Is rapidly growing- in
favor everywhere, and the energy which
Is expended in the dally edition, if di
rected toward a Sunday edition, will ln-
- sure success and ' assist materially ' in
exploiting the resources of the state and

mercy of the winds for a period of two
hours last night the big government
dredge Chinook pulled out three dol-

blna O..R. Sc N. dock. The dredge, was
. driven rapidly for a distance of 300 feet

time, most, of ' whom were preparing to
go ashore. Had the accident occurred
an hour, later, It is likely that the dredge
would have floated down the current un

damage would have-resulted. ; .
The accident occurred at 8 o'clock last
1 night The Chinook lay at Martin's
dock, where she has been since last Sun
' day for repairs to her boilers.. She ar-'-
rived here from Astoria.1 An anchor had
' been cast, while a number of cables and
, 'lines held her to .the piling of the

when the gale was at Its height she be
gan to pitch and plunge wildly against
her moorings. She was apparently fast,
t however, and nothing more than casual
i Interest, was paid to the storm by the
' men on board. . Suddenly the craft
ceased to Struggle against the lines which
held her and those on board realised
that she ".was drifting toward the ; cur

The crew was at supper at the time
and 'there was a hurrying of men on
deck. Officers gave orders rapidly and
the one remaining anchor was quiciciy
cast Like the one which dragged use
lessly through the water it failed to
catch and the boat continued toward the
middle of the stream. On reaching the
north end of the Alblna O. R. & N. dock
" the anchors caught and held fast Un
. able to bring the huge dredge again Into
her dock last night, she was ien out

' tow her back. The damage sustained
was trifling though the Injury to the
dick Is serious. ; .- .
; "If it had happened an hoof later,'
said one of the officers, "nearly all the
crew would have been ashore and the six

been unable to have done much to save

''.''' Wind's Kaay rreaks. '
One of the most peculiar freaks of the
wind was perpetrated last night Just be

store! cerner of Seventh and Washing

The glass was valued at $10..
At 4 o'clock the fire department was
called to : the corner of Eleventh and
Main streets by an alarm from box
Upon arrival it waa discovered that tha
strong wind had worked the telegraph
pole loose, and in so doing had caused
the pip- leading from the fire box to
grate so hard against the box as to turn

An alarm waa sounded at :30 from
box 238, corner of Larrabee and Broad
way streets, and 10 minutes later a sec
ond alarm waa rung from box 237, corner
of Larrabee and Holladay streets. Both
were chimney fires and were out before
the arrival of the firemen. At 7:30

Fourth and Davis streets was blown
down at 8 o'clock. t
-On Jefferson street between Eleventh
and Twelfth telephone wires became
crossed with electric light wires, and
for a time there was a brilliant display
of fire. The current was soon cut off,
however, and the wires repaired. City
Electrician Walker stated that In. pro

wires here suffered but little. -A
huge raised letter sign 60 feet in
length, at Ellera. Piano house. Park and
Washington streets, was torn down by
the wind at 9:30 o'clock. Some women
who had Just left the store barely
escaped. The. sign is valued at about
iiso and is totally destroyed. ,
Tailing Trees Do Damage.
A huge maple tree at Seventh and
Salmon streets fell at o'clock with a
crash that' was beard for blocks. Those
who were passing saw the threatened
danger and escaped being crushed by the
giant trunk. It fell directly across the
porch of the residence of C. M. Cart

dowpanei jind brushing boards from the
wall a it fell. The porch was 'partly
destroyed, while fence across which
the tree fell was completely demolished.
The tree was loosened by city workmen
who have been mending the street at that
place. . In doing so -they cut away the
roots on one side of the tree. It was
one of a number of huge trees which
have stood at the corner for 41 years.

Street car traffic during the night of
Wind and rain was Irregular. The chief
trouble was caused by limbs of trees that
were blown across the track and com

obstacles, only to' move on perhaps half
a block, where another" barricade' of
boughs would be encountered.
The City V Suburban found little dif

Heavy Wind Off Coast
A heavy gale was raging off the coast
last night and the local forecast office
predicts a' strong wind today. Fore
cast Off leal Edward A. Beals late yes

would rival, that of a week ago. Storm
signals have been displayed on the coast!
The latest , reports received by the
weather bureau last night stated that
the wind was blowing at the rate of 72
miles an hour at North Head.'' The ve
locity at Tatoosh Island was 66 miles
an hour, from the east The wind' In

"If our aerometer were set higher than
it Is," said Mr. Beals, "such a wind as
this of tonight would register about 60
miles an hour." -'. ;
Mr. Beals has warned the following
stations to look out for a heavy storm
this morning: Port 'Townsend, East
Clallam, Neah Bay, Belllngham Bay,
Anacortes, Ever.ett Seattle, Tacoma,

sidewalks suffered throughout the town.
The. large . trees In front of ' tha city
bakerv were felled by -the storm and
crashed -through the bakery window. No
one happened to be passing at the time.
The trees ii the city park suffered con
siderably, almost a third of them being
ruined. Sheds were unroofed. The
ferry waa running up to a late hour last
night but had great difficulty in making
progress against the force of the tstorm.
Only-one fire was, reported, the 'result

on the right side of the head with a

. 'The trouble, was brought about by
me telling Wright that a man who would
say, aa he did to me before the election,
that any man who could not show a tax

Carl S. Alvord,. the blacksmith, who

said: '..',-. ' -
"1 believe 1 that as soon as she gets
away from Alvord she will be all right.
Tes, there are stories that she was
drugged by Alvord, but I have no proof
of this, and am not paying much atten
tion to them.
"I have handled this case myself,
and Alvord will be prosecuted to the
fullest extent of the laW. His wife
cares nothing for him any more and has
gone to Portland to live with relatives.
I do not believe the people of Wlnlock
will make . any demonstration against
him. When I left, there I waa warned
not to bring him back, but I told the
people that I would shoot the first man

consented to return. She is not blamed
for this by the people of Wlnlock as
much as Alvord Is. I certainly believe
that my wife was drugged. . She has al

would not do anything like this unless
there was something the matter with
her. I have been told by certain parties
that Alvord gave candy to some members

USES
When asked yesterday afternoon con
cerning, the proposed removal of the de
tention jail to the city hall. Mayor Will
iams sat back in hl chair with a worn
expression and passed his hand over his
hair thoughtfully.
"If the city ha money the thing
would not be thought of for a minute,"
he stated emphatically. "But there are
things wlrVsh poverty forces upon us and
which we have to take regardless of our
thoughts In the matter.; However, I am
not at the present time exactly favora
ble to such a course. Uly opinions are
not o fixed, however, but , that they

that .will count as capital in my bust.
ness. That is What I am -at now, and
I am going to make it a go, or know the
reason why." " ::.
So his friends need not suppose that
the game of politics is to be so- fascinat
ing to the mind of Mr. Wiles that he
is to be lost in the maelstrom of pub
lio life. He Is too wise for that.
The gentleman is erecting a handsome
home in Ladd's Hawthorne Park add!
tlon, which will Boon be ready for oc
cupancy. His office is at 701 Chamber
of Commerce, where he will be pleased
to see any one who may desire any
thing in the line of cement or concrete
w6rk. - He does all the 'work tor Cate
& Powell, and takes pleasure in referring
to them as to tha excellence of , his
completed contracts. He says he thinks
more of their good will and commenda-
tlon than of all the politics that ever
boiled.
could be Changed by a. proper presen
tation of the facts, None of the coun-
cilmen have as yet Bpoken to me in- re
gard to removing the Jail to the city
hall, but I understand the proposition is
to fix up the basement for that use. The
proper course, I should Judge,. would be
not to maVci a . move until a competent
committee had investigated the matter
and reported as they saw fit. A jail in
a basement means a number of disagree
able things, not the least of which
would be the odor that would, permeate
the building, arising from the drunken
vagabonds usually Incarcerated In a de
tention Jail. ' - ; -
"Another factor, and one which Is to
be taken Into consideration, is the fact
that the city hall is on the wrong
side of the city, to be used aa a Jail.
Fully nine-tenths of the arrests are, I
believe., made below Pine street How
ever, u tne tning must or aone we can
perhaps find a way," :
