The One Thing That
Withstood the San Francisco Fire
French Bark La Tour d'Auvergne
Report Narrow Escape Off
REACH PORT EN MASSE
Bark Europe Arrives Usual Closely
Followed by a Quintette of Sailing
Vessel La Perueee Among trie
The French bark La Tour d' Auvergne
arrived up this morning and dropped
anchor In the lower harbor, thereby
completing one of the roughest voyages
ever recorded from Europe to this pert
of the world. For weeks the big wind
Jammer was at the mercy of the seas,
and yards of canvas were torn from her
ticks until It was finally feared that
she would have to drift about under
bare poles liueklly, conditions became
more favorable after the veeeel rounded
Che Horn, and aba menaced to make her
destination without asslstanoe.
Many tlmee the seas reared up so
terrifically that those on board the
Frenchman thought she would crush
under their ponderous weight, but she
managed to shake them off and emerged
without being strained or damaged
The cargo consists of about 18,000 bar-
role of cement and a lot of general mer
chandise brought out from Antwerp.
The cement Is owned by Meyer, Wilson
and company, to which firm the tner
c handles is Uso consigned. ,
The berk will probably remain in the
Stream until Monday, when she will be
ehlfted to Columbia .dock No. 1, where
the cargo will be discharged.
Next week the harbor will be crowded
with French cargo vessels, half a dosen
having arrived .n the Columbia during
the past few days. Among the veasels
now at Astoria ready to proceed up the
river are the barks Europe snd Le Pe
ru SSe, both i of which nave Just arrived
there. The Europe crossed in last night
and the Le Perueee crossed In shortly
before noon today after having played
abou" the mouth of the river for a cou
ple of days Both bring cement snd
miscellaneous freight from Europe. An
other French bark crossed in about noon,
but her name had not been learned late
this afternoon. She is now being
brought to the anchorage In the bay by
tbe bar tug.
A peculiar coincidence In connection
with t!.u arrival of the bark Europe Is
the fact that when aha put la an appear
ance off the river she wes closely fol
lowed by five other windjammers. This
has har-nened. every time the Eurone haa
arrived here and she has been here half
a dosen tlmee. Last year about this
time she dropped Into the river with
five sailing vessels eloee in her wake
and so yesterday when It was reported
that a big-fleet wes outslds, the water
front fraternity naturally put one of
the unidentified vessels dews for the
Europe. The prediction proved true, for
late In the sfternoon the big windjam
mer was brought into tbe bay.
TO LOAD WHEAT HERB
The Northwestern Warehouse com
pany today chartered the French bark
Bayard to load wheat at this port for
Europe. She Is now on the way to the
Columbia river with a cargo of coal
Sad general merchandise from Swan
sea, having left that port June It.
The Bayard should arrive .here during
the latter part ef this month so as to
be In time for November loading. Other
vessels due to arrive here soon are the
British ship Oweenee and the French
bark Empereur Menelik, both from Ant
werp. It wae reported this morning that the
BHtlah ship Wanertree left Taleahuano
for thle port October S In ballast.

Debackee arrived here Thursday night
on the French bark Jacobean, which
arrived from Dunkirk. France, after a
