KISSED THE WAVES
Great Battleship Launched
at San Francisco.
AFFAIR WAS VERY
Largest War Vessel Yet Built By the
Union Iron Works Description
of the Monster.
San Francisco, Nov, 2G. At 9:22
o'clock this morning, in the presence of
a vaet multitude, the battle-ship Wis
consin was successfully launched at the
Union iron works. The Wisconsin is
the largest of the vessels built for the
United States government at this ship
yard, All morning long the street cars let
down their loads of people at the ship
yards, and all the available boats on the
bay were pressed into service by people
anxious to see the baptism of the great
vessel. Thousands of people saw the
plunge from different points of vantage,
and the platform especially set aside for
the guests of the Union iron works was
crowded to its full capacity.
The Wisconsin delegation of "christen -em,"
which journeyed all to way fro"m
the Badger state to witness, the event,
was given the place of honor upon the
platform with the representatives of the
state, the city and the great iron works
responsible for the safe delivery of the
craft to the government.
One chock was left to restrain the
monster, and this was the support that
little Miss Lucile Gage, daughter of the
governor-elect of the state, had been a
signed to remove by means of a gnillo
tine and the inevitable electric button.
At a signal given the little miss pressed
the button, and the crash cf breaking
timbers announced to the thousands of
anxious spectators that the vessel was
about to leave the ways. Slowly the
iron monster moved toward the bay,
and all eyes turned to watch Miss
Elizabeth Stepheneon break the bottle
of champagne upon the bow of the ves
sel. Just as the mass ot iron and steel
touched the water the fair christeuer
raised the ribbon-bedecked bottle and
let it split on the nose of the vessel.
The steamer gathered momentum as
she proceeded toward the water, and
after leaving the ways floated calmly
along until brought to a stop in the
basin where the work of completing her
will go on.
When the vessel slid down the ways
the warships in the harbor fired salutes
and there was a terrific din from the
A PECULIAR REMEDY
Something About the New Discovery for
The Rev. F. I. Bell, a highly esteemed
minister residing in Weedgport, Cayuga
Co., N. Y., in a recent letter writes as
follows: "There has never been any
thing that I have taken that has relieved
the dyspepsia from which I have suffered
for ten years except the new remedy
called Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. Since
taking them I have bad no distress at
all after eating and again after long
years can sleep well. Rev. F. I. Bell,
Weedsport, N. Y., formerlv Idalia,
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets is a re
markable remedy, not only because it is
a certain cure for all forms of. indiges
tion, by because it seems to act as thor
oughly in old chronic cases of dyspepsia
as well as in mild attacks of indigestion
or biliousness. A person has dyspepsia

simply because the stomach is over
worked, all it wants is a harmless, vege
table remedy to digest the food and thus
give it the much needed rest.
This is the secret of the success of this
peculiar remedy. No matter how weak
or how much disordered the digestion
may be, Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will
digest the food whether the stomach
works or not. New life and energy ia
given not only to the stomach buttoevery
organand nerveiu the body. A trial of this
splendid medicine will convince the most
skeptical that dyspepsia and all stomach
troubles can be cured. The tablets are
prepared by the F. A. Stuart Co., of
Marshall Mich., but so popular has the
remedy become that Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets can now be obtained at any drug
store at 50 cents per package. Send for

Some Mysterious Movements That Cause
Goldexdale, Wash., Nov. 26. Chas.
Theis, general manager of the Inter
national Transportation company, of
Jennings, Mont., recently wrote a letter
from Spokane to County Treasurer
Chapman, makintr some pointed in
quiries about the feasibility of opening
np a route to the Columbia river by the
completion of the Paul F.'Mohr railway,
extending it from Columbus, on the
north bank of the river, to CrateB point,
a good landing just below The Dalles.
Through the communication, the reader
would be led to infer that Mr. Mohr has
formed some kind of an alliance with Mr.
Theis, or a new company has been
formed that contemplates operating boats
from Lewieton to Portland. Last week
Mr. Mohr, with a stranger, was seen at
Columbus carefully examining the three
miles of track extending west from the
old steamboat landing at Columbus. It
is reported that he was careful to make
a careful count of the rails while ex
amining the roadbed. It is further re
ported that persons are attempting to
acquire some valuable property at Co
lumbus at a very low price. It is be
lieved that they hold a tittle to a landing
above that of Mr. Mohr, although to date
no new deeds to property have been re

Commissioners Believe the
Treaty Will Be Signed.
IN THE DARK
Spain Will Make a Conclusive Reply at
the Joint Session Today Today is
the Last Day of Grace.
Paris, Nov. 26. The Spanish peace
commission this evening does not know
what will be the terms of the answer to
the American tender of $20,000,000 for a
treaty cession of the Philippines. Senor
Montero Rios will himself write Spain'e
final reply, presumably on the lines ap
proved by the Madrid government, but
as yet he has not formulated a sentence
Up to this evening the Madrid gov
ernment had not instructed its commis
sion here to reject the United states' of

been received from Madrid, but today
Senor Montero Bios telegraphed to Ma
drid for a construction of them, or a
clearer light thereon, and the commis
sion is now awaiting a reply.
'Spain will not ask for time beyond
Monday. She will then meet the Amer
icans and make a conclusive reply.
Speculations continue rife here as to
the acceptance or refusal of the Ameri
can terms, but a majority of those who
are in any way able to judge believe that
Spain will yield, and the American com
missioners believe that a treaty will be
Last Day of Grace.
Washington, Nov. 26, Regarding the
cabinet meeting held late last evening,
it is Baid today that in an informal way
an effort bad been made to secure a
modification of the terms of our ultima
tum, and incidentally an extension of
the time limit beyond next Monday. Aa
to the character or extent of the conces
sions sought by the Spaniards, the offi
cials here are very reticent, but whatever
their character, the decision was reached
at last night's meeting of the cabinet
that they cannot be granted.
HAD BOTH HIS
Presiding Elder "of the Eugene District
Eugene, Nov. 26. Rev. T. B. Ford,
presiding elder of the Eugene district of
the M. E. church, and a trustee of Wil
lamette university, was badly injured
in a runaway accident last evening.
Both legs were broken. His boys hitched
np the family horse in the evening and
drove out of town a short distance, when
it was caught. The boys were afraid to
drive home, and so unhitched the horse
and led it. On arriving home Mr. Ford
told them it was a bad policy to give np
to the horse, and went back to the buggy
and hitched up again, and got in and
started home, but the horse soon be
came unmanageable and ran away. Mr.
Ford was thrown out, suffering a com
pound fracture of both legs. The right
leg was broken just above the ankle, and
one large bone protruded through the
flesh and down over the shoe. The left
leg was broken about four inches below
the knee, and the bones were splintered
into a dozen or more pieceB, and several
of them protruded through the flesh.
The attending surgeon says it is more
than likely that the right leg will have
to be amputated, but he has hopes of be
ing able to save the other. Mr. Ford will
be confined to his bed for at least three
Discovered by a Woman.
Another great discovery has been
made, and that too,' by a lady in this
country. "Disease fastened its clutches
upon her and for eeven years she with
stood its severest tests, but her vital
organs were undermined and death
seemed imminent. For three months
she coughed incessantly, and could not
sleep. She finally discovered a way to
recovery, by purchasing of ns a bottle of
Dr. King's New Discovery for consump
tion, and was so much relieved on taking
first dose, that she slept all night ; and
with two bottles, has been absolutely
cured. Her name is Mrs. Luther Lutz."

was chief engineer of the steamer George
H. Mendel 1. He remained on her until
she was laid up some months ago. He
was born in New York in 1852, and
came to the Pacific coast in 1874. He
had been in the steamboat business on
the coast ever since, being shipwrecked
twice, once on the Japan, and later on
the Ventura. About ten years ago, be
came to Astoria and was chief engineer
on deep-sea tugs until offered the posi
tion on the Mendell.
