Sharp advance took place during
the first part of the day, but were
practically wiped out in the latter

carried values upward was ascribed
for the most -part to a prominent

Weakness which developed In prices

Yesterday's operations in the slock

ASTORIA. Ore.. May IS. (U. P.)
Astoiians who were admiring the sun
set across the great harbor at the
mouth of the Columbia river were re
cently treated to a rare sight when the
schooner Edward R. West, with all
sails drawing, came a-sailingout of
the sunset, to drop anchor off the city.
Wholly unassisted, the windjam
mer accomplished what is considered
impossible In most seaports, and came
the whole distance into harbor under
sail. Under ordinary circumstances
a sailing vessel cannot enter a port
without the aid of a tug. because few
channels will permit the tacking ne
cessary, the wind is seldom exactly
favorable and the river currents arei
likely to swing it from its course.
The channel at Astoria was deep
and wide enough to permit the West
to come in when sho found no tug
available at the time she reached the
entrance to the hurbor. The schooner
sailed the distance of 12 miles from
the open seas into Astoria in less than
